The Eagles probably do have the best offense in the NFL, but the best overall team? Even I don't agree with that, and I'm an Eagles fan. However, the Eagles are one of the handful of teams that could, IMO, win the Super Bowl this year.

EDIT: One other thing I'll add is I think the Eagles probably are the team that would be the most likely to beat the Patriots in the playoffs in either conference. To beat New England, you need to have a powerful offense. That, IMO, is the main reason why teams like the Steelers, Jets, and Bears had so much trouble with the Patriots the last few weeks - their offenses, generally speaking, are not that high-scoring.

Eagles have the most prolific offense in the league this year. That alone gives them a shot to win against any team. The rest is just circumstance. To me, the margin of error is increased on the opposing team to not **** up.

Hey for once can you stop with your Eagles-hating comments? We get it. No need to downplay how great the Eagles are doing so far especially after that miracle.

Green Bay Packers made it look easy.

On any given day, anything can happen and did last night. It goes to show the playoffs start and season records don't mean much, all the talk about the Colts, Saints, Falcons, Eagles was just that, talk!
