thank you.....you never know when you'll be back
This is where my head's at too. I think we'll get in the playoffs with 10 wins, but no way does the scenario to win the SB get as easy as it did this year. We'll probably have to play at GB or NO, and hope we go in "hot" and be lucky as f**k like some other b******t team representing the NFC this year. f**king Kyle Williams killed the dream for who knows how long.
We had home games, but I don't think we had it as easy as you say. New Orleans was arguably the best team in football this year and that's who we drew. And the Giants record was deceptive. They were clearly playing better at the end of the year when they got healthy. Green Bay looked like s**t. Maybe because they were rusty, or maybe because they got exposed. I wouldn't say that facing New Orleans and New York were the perfect setup to march right into the Super Bowl. Like Alex Smith said, when you get down to the final four, you're going to play another very good football team. The optimistic outlook is that we have a lot of good, young returning talent, a great head coach, a good GM, and cap room to spare.
By easy, I meant closer to perfect. We got the saints who were right behind us all year out of the dome and at home, and beat them in a magical fashion and gained confidence. Then we were super lucky to get the giants, a team we beat and that I still feel we are better than, rather than go to the death trap that is lambeau field. Then in the SB, I feel we play NE tough, and based off how Baltimore did, I think we beat them as well. Everything that we needed to happen did, which is why I'm so angry that we blew this chance due to an anomaly. Next year I have hard time seeing everything playing out so nicely.
