Playoff Scenarios

do not care where we go or who we play. this team can compete with anyone in the north or east on the road, the saints down there and seattle up there is a bit more of a challenge but i just hope the team gets themselves in that type of a situation.
Matt Barrows at sacbee.com has a good rundown of some possible scenarios. I agree with him that the #5 seed would be the best scenario assuming Seattle doesn't lay an egg and drop the division title in our laps. 5th seed we'd play either GB or CHI. According to him if NO wins their finale they'd go to PHI, and if they win there (likely) they'd go to Seattle. If NO can pull off an upset in SEA then they'd play us in SF. How great would that be? Of course if they lose to SEA we get to go into SEA after they've played a playoff game against a good offense, so they won't be as fresh off the bye.

You're not worried about Philly? They're offense is scary good, ours wouldn't be able to keep up in a shoot out I don't think. The defense could only contain them so much, there is a lot of talent on this Eagles squad. Nick Foles is someone you can't take for granted either, he's been throwing the ball well all year. I'd much rather have Dallas or Chicago.
I'm not worried about any team in the Wild Card. We are the team no one wants to play in the playoffs

I have no faith in NO going into philadelphia in January, they have shown nothing to indicate they can win out doors and in cold weather. The only way that team can win out doors is in a September or October game where it's still warm and sunny. A team with a good defense can get some stops on the eagles and their defense even though playing better still isn't anything special, you don't get far in the playoffs with a crappy d unless that d has an eye for the ball. The NFC rep in the sb wil be us, cawks or panthers the other defenses just suck in so many levels. I pray roman wakes the f**k up because if he calls a great games I don't see how we can't make it to jersey.

Agree. Philly, when they are on their game, is the most dangerous team out there IMO.

Philly's better than Chicago obviously. GB remains a mystery with Rodgers and potentially Cobb back. Dallas is done. I would be very surprised if they made it. If for some way they do win, we'd probably go there (which would be the easiest opponent in the WC round).
if the niners play in dallas, im fa sho going to dallas. That would be hella fun.

Shady McCoy, Desean Jackson, Riley Cooper and Brent Celek are a lot of weapons for Foles whose been throwing the ball with supreme accuracy and confidence.

Been saying this for awhile, Philly is a scary good team. Really want to avoid them.

They're a decent team, but I wouldn't say they're "scary good." Iggles are a bit overrated. Next year they'll be better.
Chargers win and they are in with Dolphins & Ravens losing. Steelers are in if Chargers lose

Looks like we have to go to Panthers after their win and if nothings changes

Amazing Sunday

If they play a good defensive team, they are screwed. And to win the NFC, you will have to face great defenses.
We would slaughter Philly, they have not seen a defense of our quality all season and I have seen them choke against lesser defenses. I have respect for Foles, Shady, and D.Jax but this ain't what they want.
