I used to be the hard core fan type who always wanted the very best team at full strength to show we are the best.
Now I'm a lot more neutral but at the same time, welcome the challenge.
The way I see it, Seattle is likely. If they somehow lose then I'm ok with the fact that perhaps they really aren't the world beaters everyone seems to think they are (ESP after dropping to AZ).
Supposedly the only real frightening home field advantage was the 2011 Saints. Us beating them in the playoffs was considered a bigger relief for Giants fans that year than the Saints winning in Seattle would be for us. That cocky fan base/team felt helpless in that dome.
BTW, I think the other motive behind the 18% picking Seattle:
1000% affirm that we advanced by beating them and not getting lucky to not have to play them. There are idiot fans in Seattle that think we lucked out getting ATL in the title game instead of them.
That much you have to appreciate.
