WHO knows?

And maybe more pertinent, who cares?

If the Eagles still do, they should win, but anybody with any confidence in this team's focus and desire coming off that New England loss is an optimist indeed.

The Birds' defensive line, the most consistent part of the operation, ought to be able to get to Tarvaris Jackson, and key on Marshawn Lynch. If Vince Young can stop underthrowing DeSean Jackson, and Andy Reid and Marty Mornhinweg remember they employ LeSean McCoy, the Eagles should be able to score enough points to win, if that really means anything at this point.

An Eagles loss, on the other hand, might go further toward defining the future beyond this season.

Prediction: Eagles 20, Seahawks 16
