Vikings vs. Eagles

Great couple of divisional games in the NFC this past weekend. I bet 99.9% of all Vikings fans thought they were toast Sunday before the Minneapolis Miracle. But my favorite play was on Saturday, when the Iggles defense read the Falcons play on fourth and goal to seal their victory.

Predictions? I am going with Eagles 20-14. Case Keenum throws a pick six and Nick Foles continues his streak of competency.

And.....GO JAGUARS! BEAT THOSE CHEATERS!!!

I agree with you on this point. I don't think I'll be able to watch another Tom Brady Super Bowl.

I'm still in shock over Marcus Williams' inability to tackle. Surely he had bet against the Saints in yesterday's game. Someone needs to look into that!

If He wouldn't have avoided the receiver he probably would have been called for pass interference. A game can't end on a penalty so the Skol Vikings would have had another shot probably a FG attempt.

Wow! What a sudden turn of events for the Vikings!

I think the Vikings-Eagles will be a better game than the Super Bowl. I’m a little torn, as a football fan I’d like to see the Vikings win out. As a Broncos fan, I’d like the Vikings to lose because I’d like Case Keenum as the QB of the Broncos. I’d don’t think that happens if the Vikings win everything.

Hopefully, we don’t get stuck with Brandy and the Belicheats.

I am also a Bronco fan and would like to see them get a good QB. If Carson Wentz was active I think I would cheer for the Eagles. But since he is unable to play I will go for the Vikings (God I hate to see that in type). Because I would like to see them possibly win the SB in their own Stadium. That is if they can overcome the Patriots assuming that the Pats make the finals. My thought is that almost everyone in ND is either a Viking or Packer fan. So the Packer fans will be cheering for the Eagles regardless if Carson Wentz is playing or not.

The Eagles don't need the Ginger Jesus. They'll win with Foles. You heard it here first.

My preference is the Eagles but I'd be OK with the Vikes. I'm hoping the Jags whip Brady and the Bellycheats but I'm not holding my breath.

I've got 3.5 lbs. of chicken wings to grill/smoke this afternoon, as well as a keg of homebrewed Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale clone on tap. Going to split the wings between Jamaican jerked and Korean. The jerked wings have been marinading since yesterday (I only used 2 habaneros in the marinade so I don't kill my wife )). I think I will throw a handful of allspice berries on the charcoal for authenticity when I start the jerked wings, then throw the Korean wings on later over the hot charcoal and moved the jerk wings to the cool side of the grill.

I am pretty psyched up about this afternoon. Predicting Eagles vs. Jaguars in the Super Bowl.

And that is why I don’t bet on football games. Case Keenum played like Kyle Orton.

If there is a God, and I'm beginning to have my doubts, the Eagles will humiliate the Pats and Bellycheat in an even worse way than the Seahawks mashed "Nationwide" and the Broncos a few years ago.

I've got a good feeling about the Super Bowl. The Iggles defense is way better than the Cheatriots. The Iggles won't fall for a silly ploy like "Tom Brady's hand is injured."

What a game yesterday.

Predictions? I am going with Eagles 20-14. Case Keenum throws a pick six and Nick Foles continues his streak of competency.


While I got the pick six right, it seems I was wrong on the score. And Nick Foles played brilliantly.

Congratulations, Gunnar.

Guess I will watch the SB to see what happens to the kingdom of Bud light.

I did hear today that the problem with Tom Brady's hand is that he had a 6th finger attached for the new ring☺ Go Eagles!!!

I think it's pretty sad the way philly fans are acting and destroying things around their own city.

Fake news, Cubby. The Vikings scored more points (7) than the Philadelphia police made arrests.

http://www.phillyvoice.co...idnt-burn/

Were some of them drunk? Sure. (Okay a lot of them were drunk). Did some of them chuck empty beer cans at the Vikings fans? Well, a few did. At the same time, some Vikings fans dressed the Rocky statue up in Vikings colors:



As John Blutarski would say, "You don't f@ck with the Eagles unless you know how to fly."

Think what the Eagles fans will do in Minneapolis if they win...not to mention Philly!

Apparently Cubby was right. There were some real atrocities committed by Eagles fans on the visiting Vikings fans in Philadelphia last Sunday. Twitter was a buzz. This article does a nice job of summarizing the horror.

My favorite:

After my family left the stadium with our vikings gear, we were kidnapped by eagles fans and teleported to the future where we were rounded up by chuck heston in a riot control truck and turned into soylent green. How classless!

I suppose it's still fake news about Philly fans now too?

What news is that? Seems like any other big city celebrating a world championship.

Better than being arrested for being a whiny sore loser:
