WOW. I am again surprised by a top seed failing to advance. Obviously, failing to convert on fourth down TWICE is the biggest thing I can think to bring up, but Eli doing that Eli thing again comes close.

We're going back to Arizona? Who'd'a thunk? That should be an...INTERESTING! game.

Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you...

This one was a lose-lose for me.

Giants win: My most hated team (the Eagles) gets eliminated, but Arizona would probably have had no chance in the Meadowlands wind and cold, and Dad would have had license to keep his utterly annoying jabber going.

Eagles win: Dad shuts up and there is peace in the house, and the Cardinals get a home championship game (who'da thunk THAT?) that they can win, but the evil Eagles are within one win of a Super Bowl that they shouldn't even be sniffing.

Hopefully, this outcome is for the best.

Go, Cardinals, Go!

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

I know when I watched that Cards-Eagles game on Thanksgiving night, I just couldn't shake the thought that I was watching an NFC Championship Game preview.

Wait...



Skinner: Well, I was wrong. The lizards are a godsend.
Lisa: But isn't that a bit short-sighted? What happens when we're overrun by lizards?
Skinner: No problem. We simply release wave after wave of Chinese needle snakes. They'll wipe out the lizards.
Lisa: But aren't the snakes even worse?
Skinner: Yes, but we're prepared for that. We've lined up a fabulous type of gorilla that thrives on snake meat.
Lisa: But then we're stuck with gorillas!
Skinner: No, that's the beautiful part. When wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death!

Somewhere, a company is making merch that says "NFC CHAMPIONS EAGLES" and "NFC CHAMPIONS CARDINALS."

Oh man, this is painful. We had done a pretty good job of shutting down the Eagles offense for most of the day, especially Westbrook. But of course after being good for the past calendar year, Eli has to go back to being the Eli we know and get headaches from.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but go Cards. For the sake of my health, I don't think I can take seeing two Philly teams win it all in such a short period of time.

I'm fully convinced that this is the end of the bizarro sports year that started when the Giants won it all last year. The Rays made the World Series, the Cardinals are hosting the NFC Championship game, the Chargers, who were all but clinically dead going into December, could still host the AFC Championship game, and both 6 seeds made the Championship games.

Going by what I've seen twice now, Eagle fans happy that they've got the "easier" game in Arizona, I'm convinced that the Cardinals are going to the Super Bowl. Just to keep the theme going, they should play San Diego, though Baltimore would work too, I suppose.

2 home playoff games in Eli's career with the Giants: 0 Touchdowns. It's been shown at the end of the season throughout his career, Eli can't handle the conditions at Giants Stadium. From now on, play for the 5 and 6 seed, don't go for the division title.
Dear God, I'm actually rooting for the Cardinals to get to the Super Bowl? Can they at least sell out the NFC Title Game without any extensions though?

I have changed my sig for the first time in 11 months. And I now sport the Eli Manning face for my avatar.

That was a painful second half to watch. All my kids had the facepaint on and everything, but it didn't help.

Just don't get the Eagles disrespect here.

It's the 5th time they've been in the NFC Championship game in 8 years.

Eagles D came up HUGE! Andy stuck with the run even when it wasn't really effective and because of that, they didn't get themselves in trouble.

They're the Team of Destiny, just like the Phils were.

I, for one, am not taking next week for granted. After Arizona has pulled off two straight upsets, I don't trust that team, and I hope that the Eagles practice for this team as though its the toughest team they faced. The Thanksgiving blowout worries me, because now is not the time to let off the gas, and any sense of false confidence can spell doom. The bad Eagles always have a chance of showing up. I just hope its not over the next two games...

I can't believe the thread has gotten this far without anyone mentioning Donovan McNabb's "phone call" penalty in the 4th quarter after the game was iced. It was a classic douchebag move on his part, only made that much better by Buck and Aikman's faux outrage. They couldn't fake being shocked and appalled more if they tried.

This has definitely been the decade of the Signs of the Sports Apocalypse. How many do we have now...

-2001: Small market Diamondbacks knock off New York Yankees in the World Series
-2004: Boston Red Sox win World Series
-2006: George Mason makes the Final Four
-2006: Los Angeles Clippers come within hair of making Western Conference Championship round
-2007: Boise State beats Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl
-2008: New England Patriots lose Super Bowl and undefeated season bid...to Eli Manning and the Giants
-2008: World Series consists of Philadelphia Phillies beating the Tampa Bay Rays
-2009: Arizona Cardinals/Philadephia Eagles are a win away from the Super Bowl

We're a Arizona Cardinals Super Bowl win, a Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Championship, and a Tampa Bay Rays World Series victory away from the ushering of the Sports Apocalypse. Repent now!

I'm pretty sure KathyNumbers was referring to this year's team being a team of destiny, not the teams of the past (and for the record, only a handful of players from those squads are still on the team). And last I checked, it took Bill Cowher 6 times to finally break through & get the win. All it takes is that one time.

Next week won't be easy for 'em, but the defense is kicking ass, and with no dominant teams, this year's as good a time as any to bring home a Championship.

Well, Northwestern still hasn't won a bowl game.

As for this game, I'm pretty glad I was blissfully sleeping half a world away...B^)

Not a problem... the stadium sold out in SIX minutes, even after they added 5500 more seats. Speaking as someone who has been in PHX since before the Cards were here... it was a long time coming!!

And I don't think anyone worth listening to would call any of his his teams a "team of destiny." More like a "team of persistence."

The disrespect for Donovan is ridiculous as usual. He's a douchebag because in the heat of the moment, against a rival, in a playoff game, during a season in which he was benched and everybody thought he would not be brought back on the team, he taunts the other team ONCE. Come on, every defensive player in the league celebrates tackling somebody, for doing their job on one play. But McNabb taunts somebody once and he's the biggest asshole on the entire face of the earth! Get a grip.
