He -- the Eagles won ten games this season the saints eleven. But the Eagles were competing in the NFC east. Which is probably. Is not the week is one of the weaker. Divisions in the NFL. And emulated his schedule -- got to those. Ten wins -- lost to Washington. Of all teams in the opener. Philadelphia. No they beat Washington on site Philadelphia. Loss then to San Diego. Kansas City beat him. Denver throttled them. Mom. They beat the giants. Then they beat Tampa Bay then Dallas beat them then the giants beat them. Then they beat up on an Oakland team it's not that good they did beat the Packers go without Aaron Rodgers. They beat Washington again in Washington had a tough season they beat Arizona. They beat Detroit. They lost to Minnesota. They beat the heck out of Chicago. And then and -- -- what people are calling a play -- game what one caller referred to they beat Dallas in the playoffs. Maybe a thing about it the saints had a playoff game to every -- categorize them that way because saints had to beat Tampa Bay. -- in the playoffs. At least at the time hairy man -- -- on WW LU all in for the game. And all but the thing definitely understand. -- think because of the troops and back 100%. No matter what the odds say it and that's not. -- matter. Just got to believe they can do it is not -- their regular season as partly owned by news.

I don't even know public debt they scored on this thing and it's going to be a rough game and people flat around on the carpets are gonna get. -- I don't to in terms of being a realistic how would you rate. The differential between Sean Payton Drew Brees etc. -- and a tremendous amount of playoff experience having won the Super Bowl. In Philadelphia Chip Kelly Nickels at their first time. In the playoffs. Well what that would predict is that going like what happened in Chicago what happened in other places with a -- have played in the coal duke visas apparently been. You know he's been off the bat and you will be but at the possibility. That when he plays. Nicole. Is not you know he's not planes you know full charge you know he's playing and not receive the usually dropped the ball -- You know as the receivers drop the ball you can only let out retirees today. You know demonstrating real let's. Well Jimmy Graham who normally consistent. You know when they play in the -- noted that when they play in the cold it seemed to be allowed.
