good job

looks like saints are going to win out

as long as we take care of our division games then we get the bye
I believe there is no way we lose the tiebreak if we just lose one more game.

We have a way better conference record so the Saints will need to have a better record in order to secure the #2 seed. We can afford to lose 1 game if Saints win out.
I would love to beat the Steelers. It will give these guys the biggest confidence boost for the playoffs.
Tennessee can beat the Saints. It's cold there and CJ2K looks like his old self again.
I hope the coach calls Peyton before the game this time. I guess he was a little upset about not getting a pre-game phone call and decided to blitz the entire game.


Saints coach Sean Payton was sore with Jim Harbaugh because the rookie coach never called Payton before the gameRead more: http://blogs.sacbee.com/49ers/archives/2011/12/49ers-saints-on-a-collision-course.html#ixzz1fhABTkub

i agree. unless Tennessee beats them, though, I don't think anyone will. They don't lose at home, even though Atlanta and Carolina will be tough opponents. I don't think Minnesota poses a challenge.

Unfortunately, both the Cardinals and Seahawks are still in the hunt for a wildcard berth. Both are away games. A victory next week will be vital, but the Seattle game there is always difficult.

both Atlanta and Carolina will be tough for them. Atlanta because they'll either be playing for their playoff lives, or for pride, and they really do'nt like the Saints, and Carolina because Newton is a beast. But if the Saints have a chance to get a bye, I'm just not sure either of those teams can beat them in the Superdome.
thank goodness the game vs Pitt is a home game. 3 more road games wow?
I sure don't want to lose the tie breaker because that would mean we have to play a wildcard game and win it and then go To NO and thats not going to be good for the 49ers. We must get the number 2 seed.
You know, ever since the divisions realigned and the Saints became good they were a feel good story for the league esp. after Katrina.

Now that all that is done and they have been the team, I want that old NFC West rivalry back and I want the Aints disciplined!!!!!
