    That game is a bad example because it was not a winner takes all game

    If we had lost the last game in the regular season against the eagles, the wildcard game would have been in philly. So we were going to the playoffs regardless if we won or lost the game just that we were fighting for homefield advantage, not a playoff spot

    Why do you focus on 34-3, what about the two wins against the Eagles that year to win the division and win our first playoff game since 1996 (the win that was supposed to shut up the media about that but who of course just changed it to "one win since 1996")?

    The win against the eagles in 2009 was not a WINNER TAKES ALL type of game. yes it was a beautiful win that I will also have on DVD but it wasn't a winner takes all because the loser of the game was still going to the playoffs

    The only difference was that we would have played the wildcard game in philly instead of dallas if we had lost.

    Because it was still a blow-out loss in a must win situation. Yes, we did beat the Eagles that year, so let me see, that makes three season ending thumpings to one victory (last game of the season that year was not a must win to continue the season.)

    Or this team could stop stabbing its fans in the back in must win situations?

    Plus a lot of people don't realize that even if we had lost the final game of the season to the Eagles, we were still going to the playoffs, just that it would have been in philly

    So it was a different type of game and not the same kind of pressure

    Yawn, the whining at this site is almost getting too much to take.

    We blew the Eagles out back to back weeks, one of which was a winner take all game. Of course that doesn't count because negative nancies want to point to Minnesota as the real big game that playoff year.

    but the next week had the same kind of pressure and we won, that game is just being fluffed over

    We were talking about winner take all games in the last week of the regular season.


    Not a home playoff game
