That 6-3 logjam in the NFC is going to wind up leaving two or three angry teams at the end of the year. At this point its Division lead or bust because we might as well pull the rest of the wild cards out of a hat for what its worth.
I'm probably just concerned as an Eagles fan that after last night's whupping, they'd still miss the playoffs. Chicago has to fall back down to earth, right? That should open up a spot, right???
You believe me, don't you? Please believe what I just said...

I keep hoping, but I'm not sure they're as bad as some think. Their schedule is pretty tough from here on but the Eagles' isn't exactly a walk in the park either, especially if Dallas is going to actually get their shit together.
The whole damn league's been so up and down it's near impossible to feel confident about anything. Except the suckiness of the Panthers, I guess.

Which we get a "preview" of this Sunday, just in New Orleans. If this game didn't fall on a short work week, I could have scheduled myself to be in the area for this one, but the NFL has seen fit to schedule any Seahawk road games I could have possibly gone to this year on very bad weekends for me to actually get there. Oh well.
This should give us an even better idea of which Seattle is the real team. The one that beat Chicago and Arizona on the road or the one that got murdered by Oakland on the road and the Giants at home. I'm certainly hoping for the former.

The Eagles have 3 common games with the Giants and the requirement is 4 common games for the tie breaker to be valid. Currently, the Eagles are 2-1 vs 1-2 in those 3 games. Indy, Tennessee, and Detroit.
CBSsports jumped the gun and gave them the division, but that is technically not correct, as the point of this is to show how the seedings would be RIGHT NOW. They both play each other next week, so that will sort it self out in the meantime.
While not a National Title game, the National Title has been won at the Holiday Bowl at least once that I remember. When I was 9 years old, I remember watching BYU win the National Title by winning the 1984 Holiday Bowl.
