What They're Saying About The Eagles: Divisional Playoffs II, NFC Edition

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to WTS Divisional Playoffs Volume II: The NFC Edition.

If you didn't get a chance to catch up with the 1st Volume: AFC Edition, you can read it here.

Here we are. Knocking on the improbable Super Bowl door. Certain simulations tried to warn people that an upset may occur last week against Atlanta, but most pundits and fans picked with their "expertise" instead.

The Washington Post ran a very interesting story two days before our Divisional Playoff game in Philadelphia where it cited Football Outsider's Pythagorean win percentage to simulate the playoffs 5,000 times, and as it turned out, the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles had the best chances to win the Super Bowl. And before you ask, yes, this accounted for Nick Foles...

3 of the 4 bottom teams on this list got eliminated this past weekend. Now I'm not saying this thing is the end all be all of accuracy, but it was pretty accurate.

Speaking of accuracy, let's all take a moment to laugh at the pundits.

Only one member of the MMQB staff picked the Eagles to even make it to the NFCCG in their January 4th article.

10 of their 11 writers chose the Eagles to go one and done. Lol @ you, MMQB.

ESPN was even more fantastic, generating the following graphic with their expert picks:9SrfoK2.0.png

Thank you Graziano. Your faith and loyalty will be rewarded. As for everyone else? F*** you. Especially you Golic.

ESPN's picks this week?

I see you Graziano, I see you.

How about our SB Nation Hub? Surely someone there must have believed?

Stites and Thorman. Fair enough.

How about you, USA Today?

Good picks! @ USA Today: F*** all of you.

I'm not too concerned with the picks of pundits, they're literally paid to generate hot air from their cold hearts for hours on TV.

What does concern me however are the implications of a recent FTW article (and now BGN article) which was able to take a screen shot of a United Way donation promotion recently posted on the NFL's official facebook page. The charity event, being held through the NFL, promoted tickets for what seemed to be an already pre-determined SB line-up, featuring the Vikes and the Pats: 4nwT2d0.0.png

Really NFL? Really? Do you know something we don't?

Regardless, they were quick to remove their telling faux pas, but a well timed screen shot is the gift that keeps on giving.

@ NFL. F*** you too.

Normally, this is where I would include Norm's best Gifs of the week, but due to the already ridiculous length of this article, even after breaking it into conferences, that will most likely have to be a separate post all together.

I still love you, Gif God Norm!

Quick observational notes on the comments:

1) Chicago still seems to be butthurt about the whooping we handed them earlier in the regular season, especially regarding the team celebrations.

2) The Skins really want Trey Burton.

3) There is a particular member of both the Cowboys and the 49ers (LizardState) who seems to show up in every thread just to shit on the Eagles. My guess is that they grew up in South Jersey.

4) Saints fans don't seem that bad this week. Or Vikes for that matter.

5) Two Falcon fans eventually get into a fight regarding which one is drunk and which one is dumb. It's fun all around. Also, they really, really hate their OC.

6) F*** Dallas.

On to the game, Enjoy!

BONUS REDDIT COMMENTS

Well, that's a wrap for this week's double edition of WTS: Divisional Playoffs. I hope you enjoyed reading them as much as I did putting them together. Looking forward to our next home, underdog game against the Vikes.

Until then,

We all we got, we all we need.

FLY EAGLES FLY!!
