Seriously, calm down.

Foles wasn't good, but Carr was even worse. And he managed to get enough yards at the end to give our kicker a chance at a game winner. Our WR's gave him absolutely no help.

The defense played out of their minds, which will be needed in a couple weeks no matter who we play. In all likelihood we'll play the winner of the Panthers/Saints first round game. I imagine we're all in agreement that we would rather face the Panthers.

I'm not sure - the weather is more of a factor to a Dome team where humidity is a billion percent all-year, so perhaps that Philly January chill can be more advantageous than the overall talent margin of our potential opponents...

Well, the last time we were in the playoffs Foles lost to the Saints when it was about 4 degrees out.....

Of course that was a different team, and our defense is excellent now. But Brees is one of the best ever, and I'd take Carolina any day over them.

They do look better than Carolina, but the chill is a lot less forgiving on the aging. Brees was younger then.
