    Right now, my Pats, for whom I used to cheer in Fenway Park when I was in college in the 1960s, are doing a lot of losing again.
    By the way, the tickets at Fenway Park were seven bucks back then.
    At one time didn’t they play at the football stadium at BU? I recall reading that on a plaque somewhere

A large number of Californians visiting might bring some class to that God forsaken City.
    Hey, I like Philly, you just have to know where not to go, and I would agree that the Eagle games are the wild Wild West, no pun intended, sitting out in the cold consuming large amounts of alcohol wearing six layers of clothing leads to irritable fans.

    And think any big event in a major city in the northeast will have higher costs over that occurring in Missouri

    The beauty of Purdy's situation in SF is he's not being asked to carry the team. He has incredible weapons around him and a brilliant play caller in Shanahan. He's shown he can make the throws needed and most importantly he's not (at least yet) made big mistakes. This is going to be a huge challenge for him. Philly is (stating the obvious) very good. But I wouldn't sleep on him.

    Philly fans are notorious and it seems the City has a little brother syndrome about it. The 49ers and Eagles have only met once in the playoffs I believe so we don't have much history with them. When I worked in LA my old firm owned a couple of high rises in downtown Philly and I can remember the two guys who headed the account making snide remarks about disliking having to go to Philly to do on-site visits and not liking the City. Always made me laugh.

    he was pretty much shut down against Dallas - when they had 4 days of prep time. he is easy to defend.

    I'm stating the obvious but the goal is to win the game, not just have the QB put up crazy stats. The team has won 12 straight, including all of Purdy's starts. If he's easy to defend then it reasons you could take away the run game and everything else that Shanahan has come up with but clearly that hasn't been the case.

    Philly has an excellent D and they can put pressure on the QB. But the 49ers have a hell of a running game and we saw the Commanders run over the Eagles when beating them so I'm not putting this game in the L column just yet.

    He's an excellent game manager, especially for how short a time he has been in the league in a starting role!
    When if ever did a rookie QB get this far in the playoffs?

    Two days away from game time and the juices are starting to flow. As stated, Philly could easily run away with this. They are a very good team with few weaknesses and Hurts has had a MVP type season. But delving into the Philly (fans) mindset I get the sense they are almost overlooking the 49ers. They have the sense one or two folks here have of who is this Purdy guy and what has he done and he'll be easy to stop.

    I really hope that attitude trickles down to the team and they come out overconfident and the 49ers get physical and punch them in the mouth early. LFG!!!

    49'ers have a very good defense, I think it will be a close game.

    Steelers 2004-2005, 15-1 record, won the division but lost the AFC championship.
