Illustration for article titled Playoff Pants Party: Saints Vs. Eagles

This might be the oddest matchup of the divisional round: The Saints are a team that no one is quite sure whether or not is a leading contender or just a team that would occasionally get hot at the right time. And the Eagles ... jeez, Jeff Garcia, we mean, in the words of GOB, come on! It's somewhat disappointing that the only night game this weekend is in a dome; it might as well be noon.


Remember: If the Saints win, there are no longer any issues with New Orleans' reconstruction after Katrina. Worth keeping in mind.

Cool Standings: Eagles.
Football Outsiders: Saints.
Harmon Forecast: Saints.
Paul Zimmerman: Saints.
Peter King: Saints.
Lil' Sean: Eagles.
Dan Shanoff: Eagles.
Kissing Suzy Kolber: Saints.
Deadspin: Eagles. We sense a last-second field goal by David Akers, and we also sense that the world might be comin' to an end, Mal.


Let's see your picks down below, if you're up for such machinations.
