Here's how I see it from our side.
Their RB is glass and not very good.
They don't have any #1 WRs. Revis, Joseph, and Jenkins would smother what they do have.
Their QB turns the ball over too much. We have the pass rush to pressure him and the secondary to take it away. Aldon is being Aldon again.
Their best offensive weapon is 37 years old in Gonzales.
On the flip side.
Cutler has been playing lights out. They don't have a secondary to stop Andre, Graham, and Hartline (been playing really well) and we can still keep them off balance with Chris Johnson
I just don't see what their offense is going to do. And I don't see a ton that will stop of us from putting up scoring drives moving the ball with a balanced attack and taking advantage of our passing weapons.
If we were voting based on team names, then GASS easily gets my vote.
Eli has 7 interceptions in 2 games. This secondary is vastly superior to the teams he's faced in real life and his weapons are nowhere near as good.
Tony G and Jennings are both past their primes and neither is going to carry them out of this. Decker is a product of P.Manning and baby Manning is not as effective.

Greg Jennings is past his prime, but yet has 117 yards through 2 games with Ponder throwing to him and coming of an 84 yard game against a good Bears defense, again with Ponder talking to him.
Tony Gonzalez being past his prime but no mention of Andre's talent regression?
Your comparing situations that happened in real life to saying he'd do the same against your defense.
Jay Cutler has never led a team past the NFCCG and is coming of throwing 2 picks against an awful Vikings defense..
Atleast Eli has faced the Broncos and Cowboys defense, but what's Cutlers excuse?
Not to mention y'all want to talk about our players being past their prime and talent regression, but what happened to CJ2K?
CJ2K is averaging 3.5 YPC so far through the season and Andre albeit still a top 5 WR, hasn't beasted like he did a few years ago and this is with a way better RB in Foster opening holes for him. So how is CJ2K going to make that any better??
Eli is clutch when it matters most and just like the Giants in real life our team snuck into the playoffs and has pulled of 2 upsets and now are facing a top team, this is where he thrives the underdog role.
It's proven he'll come up big in these situation and Cutler will crumble

Greg Jennings is coming off his worst year.
Gonzales is 37 year old and seems to be your best target.
Decker had 300 more yards in a season than he's career totals once he was hadn't Peyton. Now that Welker is in town that appears to be down too.
He's been sacked once and he's completing 68% of his passes and throwing TD's at a rate he's never had. He's in his prime and is given protection. Now we give him that Marshall type option, the best TE, a quality #2, and a RB who can do make big plays if you sleep on him worrying about the rest.
Add in the additional fact that we don't need to rely on him. We will run the ball and keep some balance but our passing weapons and Cutler with an OL and weapons is what is scary. You start leaning that direction and he'll gash you. Not to mention your RB has started 9 of the last 34 games for his team. He's hurt right now. Our run game is clearly superior.
We have a dangerous talented player to keep the balance and you have nobody to balance Eli + second tier passing threats.
Clutch should not reign supreme.
That's my two cents.
Also, you just KNEW I was destined to meet eagles in the playoffs
voting for your own team eh ebbs
Ebbs, you clown...........
I don't know if that means we get DQ'd or what. If not I'll message Bais to tell him to change it to GMs.
I'm sure it was an accident, he's not THAT stupid.
im just messing with him lol but still its not even the one next to gm's...
bump cmon moarrrr votes people

I thought we were better than a 7th seed, so making the conference finals was nice. Getting knocked out by the best team doesn't hurt.
Props to Norm and Ebbs.
