Even though I've had faith in the Niners to make the playoffs all year, they have really impressed me (the D in particular), but after seeing how good the Packers were performing, I have been looking at them as our primary obstacle since a few weeks into the season. After the first few wins, I couldn't help but recall what brought me to hate the Packers; losing to them in multiple NFC championship games. (I'll throw in here that my roommate, who thinks he has visions and s**t, told me before the regular season started that he dreamt of the Niners, and Alex in particular, making it to, but losing in, the NFC championship game.) I think we win.
Sorry, you can't get something like that wrong. This might have been covered in one of the other 5 pages of this thread, but I don't care.
95: Divisional loss at home
96: Divisional loss at GB
97: NFC Championship loss at home
98: Catch II
01: NFC Wild Card loss at GB
I can practically recite the scores of each of those games. How do you not remember the round, the date, s**t, the WEATHER OUTSIDE when we lost to tards?
Well, my bad, but it felt like they were NFC championships because we were often the two best teams, but they knocked us out of the playoffs way too many times.
And to all the "jinxing it," comments and "we need to focus on the next game," comments, I don't believe in jinxes and guarantee you other people have already "jinxed" every possible outcome, including Packer fans, and it doesn't matter what "we" focus on. If the players were having this conversation, that would be a problem, but we're fans, this is the kind of crap we should be discussing and there is a very good chance we end up facing the Packers in the NFC Championship game @ Lambeau, so why not discuss it.
For all intents and purposes, we're 2 games ahead of the #3 Saints, so unless you expect us to lose half of our remaining games while NO goes undefeated, we have 1 game keeping us from the NFC championship matchup vs the Packers. I'd say it's a pretty likely scenario.
