Ok, ok, dodgy etiquette to start the match thread when I do not have a position in this one (even though an Eagle fan).

Logically I think the Saints will win, the poor road team thing is over-done and is a bit of a rallying call for them I think. Brees is a top tier QB, Foles is all potential.

Saints are an experienced play-off team, Eagles are not and funny enough are a better road team than home teamShocked.

So that's it...... Saints it is.

Ehmm, not quite....there is something to this away form for the Saints, (listened to a few podcasts and picked-up on something and followed it up)...Brees throw, while accurate its not fast with a spiral that cuts through the air and reduces accuracy and pace outdoors and in cold weather. So its a real thing.

Saints defense ranked 4(?) didn't look that good whenever I saw it live - plus poor-ish against the run.......McCoy is looming, spells trouble!!

Eagles defense awful, but improving....its not play-off calibre - fact.

I could go on and on......just don't know.

Anyone certain about this, apart from Clay?Confused

Why? If they don't make its a 2 score game and the saints have the ball at the one. If they kick the field goal its still a two score game.
Report Colldogg January 5, 2014 3:34 AM GMT
Why should they take the field goal? If they take field goal they still got to score twice in 4th quarter and would rely on getting the ball back from New Orleans twice. If they did not get the TD they would have still had to score twice but had New Orleans pinned on the 1yard line so right call imo. Anyway what the hell, TOUCHDOWN EAGLES!!! ExcitedExcitedExcited

... yep but would only need Td and FG, not TD and TD...plus the risk of not getting in and momentum swing. Accept your logic, but I'd be a conservative coachHappy....

There was no logic at all last week. As a bears fan i was laughing my arse off thinking their stupidity had cost them the game and would have been living off that for years. It's a shame that we have a defence that sucks so badly this season that it diddn't matter Sad

McCarthy did the right thing by going for one last week......kept it to a one score game even if the Bears scored next ( would have been down by eight ) no-one watching that game didn't think the bears wouldn't score again the way those defences were playing.
Report Colldogg January 5, 2014 3:44 AM GMT
If I remember correctly though it was late in the 4th quarter though and no guarantee they would have got the ball back if we had picked up a few first downs and run the clock down? Had they not got the ball back and we won by 1 then the Packs would have been crucified for it.

Field goal here surely, would be wrong to go for it now Tongue Out

hard to ever narrow a game down to 1 play but the cooper drop on 3rd and 4 was what changed it. if he had gained possesion he was possibly off to the house which wud of made it a philly lead instead of 13 behind.

Not kicking the ball as far and along away from Sproles would be one ,and the Last would be not letting the Saints score a Td
