Nobody in Richmond, Virginia that I know calls northerners "Yankees"..............

That's because 90% of Richmond is made up of Northerners!

More than a bit. I had no problems when I moved South. Yes ma'am and yes sir is good everywhere. My husband and I were a bit lax about that, but the neighbor from Southern Virginia set my son straight.

I feel like we will see a super bowl similar to the two Giants vs. Patriots super bowls. This Eagles team has a similar feel to those Giants teams. They are a solid football team across the board. They don't do anyone thing amazingly well but they do everything across the board well. They can run the ball out of different sets. They can run the ball with speed or power. They can dink and dunk or they can go deep.

I think it will be a close game. Will it be a 31-28 type game? Or a 20-16 type game? Could go either way. I like the under and Eagles with the points. With the exception of last years six point win in overtime 6 out of the 7 patriots super bowls were all decided by four points or less right?

Who gives a crap what Patriots fans think about the Eagles, their schedule, or anything else?
Eagles have a stout defense. They have weapons on offense. And Foles despite his detractors showed what he is capable of against the Vikings.

Regardless, this Patriots fan thinks the game will be close and the Patriots will win. The underdog stuff is tiresome. Hey, many had the Jags beating the Pats.

Eagles had an easy schedule this year because they finished 7-9 last season and play in a weak division. Patriots are the Super Bowl Champs and they get a tougher schedule, that is how it works in the NFL.

That's not at all how it actually works though. The schedules are 90% random/pre-determined. That can play a much bigger factor then playing two first place finishing teams from the other two other divisions in your conference.

Jags had an easy schedule and only finished 10-6 yet we saw that game come down to the wire.

And this Eagles team of all teams really has the look of those old Giants teams IMO.

My Bills were without a doubt one of the worst and luckiest playoff teams we have seen in the last 17 years though.

Statistically it was one of the worst Bills teams in the entire 17 year drought. Yet they went 9-7 and made the playoffs. Go figure.
