Playoff Scenarios

I think packers and eagles win this week. So...

If we win and/or Saints lose (5 seed) we would be @ GB

If we lose and Saints win (6 seed) we would be @ Phi

You kill the current format and its like the NBA where division play loses its luster. Just playing a team twice a year isn't enough to foster the division game atmosphere we have now. You win the division you punch your ticket to the playoffs with a home game. You want it you earn it. Win your division or be left fighting for wildcard scraps.
I definitely dont want to play the Packers in the playoffs. Yes, we beat them our past 3 meetings but it is extremely to beat a team 4 times in a row. We all know they will be looking for revenge also.

Id rather play GB than Philly right now. Its close though. Would much rather play the bears or cowboys.
We're still playing Chicago, I have a funny 'gut' vibe about all this Rodgers hype. -It could end ugly.

I also think it adds to the intrigue. Everyone hated on the BCS, but there was always some storyline or something to talk about. I think the current playoff structure is the best playoff structure outside of March Madness.
Let's go Lambs. Let's go Yucks.
If SF and Dallas win on Sunday do Niners play Cowboys?

1. If SF, DAL, and CHI win, we play DAL.
2. If SF loses, CHI loses, and NO + DAL wins, we play the Cowboys (#3 vs #6).
3. If SF, DAL & GB win, we play GB due to GB tie + strength of schedule.

The #2 option has a scary flip-side depending upon the NFC East winner (we could face Philly).

not worried about philly
Let's pretend the unthinkable happens: We beat the Cardinals and the Seahawks lose to the Rams. That would give us the division after trailing the 11-1 Seahawks with a 8-4 record with four weeks left to play... Seems like a comeback that would be remembered for many years...
I am expecting the "unthinkable" to happen...
Go Rams!!

Go Niners!!!

same here. the seahawks dont think they are immortals anymore after the last two weeks and it seems like were on fire while theyre cooling off. if the niners pull this off this will completely destroy them going into the playoffs and theyll be steamrolled in the wildcard round by s**tty dallas with kyle orton or something. then we eventually steam roll dallas on our way to a superbowl

As the 5th seed I'm praying we play the Bears and not the Packers.
