I know it is only a game, but that really is why.
I can respect that, and if it came to the point of having
to travel to Seattle, then I would embrace it completely -- but it's also a romanticized idea.
Looking at it logically, after already traveling to a tough venue in Arizona for the season finally, after already facing a tough opponent in Lambeau field, and after having to travel to a tough opponent in Carolina -- given that we win and actually had a choice
-- practical reasoning tells me we ought to have a NFC conference championship at home -- for the last time EVER.
I want a 6th ring, and I'm sure you 19% do too, but I want the route which offers the highest probability to do so. It's a tough sport, so at the end of the day, if the team hypothetically were to win a championship, I guarantee that no one with a logical mind would say, "damn, we won, but I really wish we played Seattle first to stick it to them
". Screw Seattle, I'm all for the best interest of my team; I just want to win.
