Gameplan for a potential NFC Championship game against GB

Not to be a downer but I am not going to overlook anyone especially the Saints and talk a bout an NFC championship game. I feel like I would be jinxing the team.

I wouldn't say I'm overlooking N.O., I just really expect/think we'll win. Although I dono, maybe that is actually overlooking.

After just seeing a 13-3 Falcon team stroll in the playoffs and get bounced not to mention waiting 9 years for a playoff game, I'm seriously scared of jinxing the team. But to be real, the teams that I would be the most nervous facing in the playoffs are the Saints and Giants.

because looking ahead IS exactly what causes our fans (especially on this message board) to be so quick to cry when we lose a game. You guys are setting yourselves up for a GB matchup but what IF we don't beat the Saints? Then you guys will suddenly believe our team is the worst in the NFL and the threads in ninertalk will be unbearable....

cant wait till 2015 when we are in our new stadium and play the afc west. OOOOOHhhh cant wait. Everyone on this board looks ahead. When your bored what else are you going to do?

It's funny how people are saying we can't dance with the Saints or Packers because of their offenses... but can they compete with us defensively, and on the ground?

-I'm not joking, analysts are finally talking about just how s**tting NO & GB's defenses are (they're almost dead last in all categories); so really, how will it become a shoot-out when neither will be able to score much on us?

This team reminds me a lot of the 2007 Giants; who took down all the passing juggernauts in the NFC (and the Superbowl) with sheer defensive dominance, and conservative; clock-grinding, sophisticated-running & TE schemes.
