    Wouldn't the Cardinals wining, a team that we beat soundly, make us look better, rather than having a team win that we lost to?

    Who would you rather have win the NFC Championship; A team we beat or a team we lost to?

    We are better than the Cardinals.
    In the case of playoffs, I always cheer for the team that eliminates my team, if my team made it.

    Re: I'm All About the Eagles

    If the Eagles win the SB, I win a plot of land in Scottland... so I got that going for me.

    Which is nice.

    Per Cheets (If his math is correct)

    If the Eagles win, we pick 22nd in the draft.

    If the Cardinals win, we pick 21st in the draft

    cheets says:

    If Arizona wins it would get th 31st or 32nd pick and Philadelphia would still have a higher winning percentage than the Vikings.

    Vikings: 10 - 7; winning percentage of .588

    Philadelphia: 11 - 7 - 1; winning percentage of .605 (11.5/19)

    So the Vikings would be selecting 21st if Arizona wins. Go Cardinals!

    With that said, I'd rather see the Cardinals win & get the earlier draft pick, rather than have some self-gratifying, hollow reason to make myself feel better & try to minimize & sugarcoat our loss to the Eagles.


    Besides, like I said earlier, I still think it's better to see a team win the NFC Championship that we know we can beat, rather than seeing a team win it that we know we lost to.
    Cheets is wrong.
    Outside of going to the Super Bowl, the post-season has no bearing on draft placement.
    Only regular-season records are used.
    The Vikings are drafting 22nd.

    Watch Jim Johnson work his magic.
    look at what they've done lately and watch them beat kurt
    Yep, stuffing the Giants vaunted run game twice on 4th and short in the 4th qtr. yesterday was impressive.
    If Frazier can make Warner look silly, wait till Johnson gets done with him.
    agreed.
    and asante samuel has been HOT this post season
    Yep.
    But not only that, IMO it's no coincidence or fluke that the top three defenses in the NFL are among the final four survivors.
    Don't see the Cards surving past Sunday.

    That's why I get upset when they call Bill Belichick a freakn' "Genius".

    The two best offenses (most points scored in a season) in the history of the NFL BOTH choked.
    The '98 Vikes and the 2007 Patriots.

    You would have though this guy would know too put more stock in his defenses.
    That's why they were not in the playoffs this year, as well.


    I ain't no freakn' "Genius", but even I can see that.

    I hate the Eagles and their fans.

    3 of which are my roommates, but I don't hate them.

    I guess "If you can't lick 'em, join 'em" eh?

    Yet the big talk around here last offseason was how we "owned " the Super Bowl champion Giants when we played them earlier in the season.

    You can cheer for the Eagles if you want, if it gives you some false sense of gratification that you think it makes us look better, but in reality, we are the same team that lost to them. It doesn't make us better one iota.

    I'm all about the Eagles...

    I don't want the CARDS to make it to the NFC game in 46 yrs the Super Bowl.

    OMG!!!!!! Ahead of the Vikings I would never live it down in AZ.
