Whisenhunt Happy to be Wrong

Second-year coach, Ken Whisenhunt, thought the last home game against Atlanta, was probably the last. Needless to say, he's thriled he was wrong.

"Obviously we are excited that we have another home game to host the NFC Championship at University of Phoenix Stadium. It is huge for this organization, for our players, and especially for our fans. After our Wild Card win here against Atlanta, I did my victory lap around the stadium because I thought it might have been the last chance for me to show my appreciation to our fans.

As we all know now that was incorrect and I've never been happier to be wrong. With the Philadelphia victory, we have this opportunity to host the NFC Championship against the Eagles. I know it is going to be a great atmosphere and it is going to be electric. The home field advantage is huge for us because we don't have to travel.

Knowing the environment and knowing the way our fans have supported us gives us such an advantage and that is exactly what we want. We couldn't ask for anything better for an NFC Championship game."
