Now that the 2nd Seed is With It's Rightful Owner What Team Would You Rather Us Face?

Now that the 2nd Seed is With It's Rightful Owner What Team Would You Rather Us Face?

I'm a lot less worried about Seattle. They're a different team without their stadium. Still the team I don't want to see in the playoffs, though. I'll take the Skins.

Maybe if the majority of 49er fans weren't fairweather as hell.. you too could have a great HFA.

Have fun next Saturday when 40% of your crowd are Packer fans btw.

Seattle

Because they spanked us last time so we must kick their ass this time around to leave no doubter on our road to the superbowl!!!

I read "cowgirls" somewhere and it made me laugh out loud.

Part of me says Seattle, because I'm confident we can beat them, and revenge would be nice. IF, however, we did lose to them, we wouldn't hear the end of it. Now I don't think that they can win the Super Bowl, but if they made it after beating us, that would really leave a bad taste in your mouth.

Another part hopes we get Green Bay, because of all the teams in the NFC they are the team I dislike the least.

I think we will play Green Bay. I'm worried about this defense against the Redskins, Seattle Pistol formations. With only Crabtree as a real threat, I donot like the matchup agains the seahawks whom donot get flagged for holding or pass interference often.

JUSTIN SMITH is really needed for a super bowl run. Aldon has no sacks last three games.

Seattle doesn't run anything out of the pistol.

While they got hot late you cannot ignore their 3-5 road record. They beat the Bears, Bills and Panthers on the road. The only quality team there is the Bears and look where they ended up, 7-1 start and didn't make the play-offs.

As a Seahawk fan, I would hope that most fans and hopefully other teams put a lot of merit into the hawks road record. As I think it would be a big mistake.

What happens in September, October, and most of November, has very little merit December and January.

As teams remind people every year, the playoffs are all about momentum. The Texans are 6-2 on the road, and 6-2 at home. Is anyone really scared of them right now? Green Bay is only .500 on the road, should Atlanta should have no concerns if they host them in the NFC championship right?

You can throw records out the window in the playoffs. Who cares if Seattle hasn't won a playoff game since 1983? There isn't a player on this roster or a coach on this team that was around for those losses (.......ok excluding Trufant). Right now momentum would say the most dangerous teams in the playoffs are Denver, Seattle, and Washington.

That's not to say that I think any of those 3 are a lock to win a super bowl, I'm just saying that I don't think their records mean anything right now. They are all playing lights out, and no team should want to face any of the 3.

Bumped for merging with noob threads

Unfortunately, you're right.

Candlestick will be laden with cheeseheads next week, but it still beats having to go to Lambeau....or in your case, going to Washington and THEN Atlanta.

No home cooking for you guys this year.

If the Skins down't own you guys this week the Falcons will next week. Hawks can't play on the road and two straight weeks in the East will be way too much for them. If they do pull it off we'll be happy to crush them at the Stick.
