Or how bout we just have a 16 team playoff system similar to the NBA (no 10-6 or 11-5 team gets left behind)
I would much prefer us offing the Pack at home with a healthier Justin Smith, and then going into Atlanta (which is a fair-weather stadium, not as intense as a Saints-hosted Superdome game), and knocking out a Falcons team which might be crippled from a costly victory over the Seahawks a week previous.
No Giants, thank heaven. Green Bay at Lambeau, I just watched a replay of the Ice Bowl 67', no thanks. Falcons in a controlled environment, sounds good. Week off? Last year the Giants went through Atlanta, Green Bay and San Francisco. And finally there is the not so improbable rematch with Seattle, that would be along the magnitude of Dallas-SF 92' and 94' Championship game Wars.
Why the hell wouldn't we want a playoff bye?

Its more about having to go to Green Bay or the Packers coming here.

I don't see us beating GB twice in a year in their house.
We've got to make them come to Candlestick, where our chance of beating them would be more than doubled IMO.

Regular season objectives

5. get home field advantage
6. go undefeated

If we win tomorrow, we achieve four of the six.
