I guess I am hypersensitive because I reside in an area far away from NOLA and have to listen to the fans and talk of the Philadelphia Eagles, but I just have to vent at the hypocrisy of things. Until the Saints beat the Patriots (and even after), many would say that the Saints haven't beat any team that is good. Even though we played some teams who were undefeated at the time, we really weren't " validated " until the Patriots game. Even now there are doubters. But, the Eagles are the new team to get a lot of attention because of their winning streak and playoff berth and possibility of winning their division. Well, the Eagles have not beaten a team that is going to the playoffs this entire year!! And no one seems to notice this. Unless you count the Giants who are very doubtful. The only playoff caliber teams they have played have been losses (New Orleans, San Diego, and Dallas). These three teams are the only teams that had top level QBs who were playing well at the time (sorry, Cutler, Stafford, DelHomme, etc don't qualify). And they lost badly to the Raiders, but now they get all the attention. Well, one nice thing about the NFL is that there are no imposters when it's all over. The Eagles play a desperate Broncos team with a return of Brian Dawkins to Phila, and then the Cowboys in Dallas. If they win bith of those games, I will tip my hat to them. If they lose, I will say I saw it coming.
