Final Thoughts on Purple vs. Green

Jim Souhan has an uncharacteristically great column about how Donovan McNabb is the thread that connects everything in Sunday's game. More importantly, there's pretty much no scenario Sunday that could possibly lead to Donovan ending up with the Vikings next year.

Meanwhile, Steve Aschburner has recognized that fans of the Vikings and Eagles are very, very different. This column would greatly anger everyone in Philly if they had ever heard of MinnPost.com.

Bill Simmons, KSK and Deadspin, meanwhile, have devoted their coverage of the game to the "two horrible coaches square off" subplot.

How will it end up? It depends on which Eagles team shows up, and which Vikings team. My gut feeling? Eagles 21, Vikings 16.

As for the overall playoffs, I see a Manning-Manning Super Bowl, and the most insufferable two-week lead-in imaginable.
