Sorry, but I still don't see us losing the 2nd round bye.
I might be reading this wrong, but I don't think that is right. If Saints win out, the 49ers must win out. They currently have the same record at 10-3. 13-3 > 12-4. NFC win/loss doesn't matter then.
The Saints play &MIN, ATL, CAR
49ers play PIT, &SEA, &STL
The schedule favors the Saints IMO.
This is what bothers me most about this loss. We needed the Arizona game to give us some wiggle room, but now we have to beat Pitt then play Seattle at their crazy place on Saturday (WTF?). We're in trouble.
