All of these teams scare me right now. Everyone of these teams is capable of running the ball and all have potentially lethal passing attacks. Man, right now against the Saints defense, the Cardinals and Warner could have a freaking field day. Really, things need to get cleaned up in a hurry.

Re: Playoff Opponents

I think the key is the health of Greer and Ellis. If we can get Porter and Greer starting at CB and Gay back at the nickel with Ellis inside, then GW can become more aggressive with the Defensive pressures. We have had to try and hide M Jenkins weakness for the last 2 months. On offense, missing Shockey has allowed the opposition to blitz more without his receiving threat down the middle of the field. #85 Thomas has done a good job as an all purpose TE FB etc. If Eckel can become servicable, we will be able to use both Shockey and Thomas in 2 TE sets. That could vastly improve the running game. The bye is also a plus, their bye week was October 11, a little time to get their legs back under them could do wonders!

Unfortunately, However, the players behind him??????????????? The NFL rules favor passing the ball. You need a shut down corner! Before his injury, I only saw Greer give up 1 TD. I think it was to Roddy White. A pretty good WR

Hes been exposed and picked on ALOT over the last few weeks. Especially on 3rd down. He knows they are throwing at him, I know it,you know it...its a weakness if everyone knows and it still isnt addressed

Re: Playoff Opponents

I like how we match up against the Packers, Vikes, and Cards, because we can put up the points against their defenses, no prob.

I least like the Eagles, who frankly are playing good ball and are getting tough on D. Defintely NOT the team we beat earlier in the season.

Re: Playoff Opponents

Isn't it impossible for us to tell who we will play until the wildcard round is over...because even if we knew the seeding, we would have to know who wins on that day?

1 and 2 seeds sit on wildcard weekend and watch. After that, 1 plays the lowest remaining seed and 2 plays the other...if I'm not mistaken.

I think the Eagles are the best team in the NFC right now. If they take care of Dallas Sunday then we don't have to worry about them until the championship game.

And the TD that Greer gave up to White was after an obvious offensive pass interference which was not call, in which White pushed Greer out of the way.

I like our chances against anybody if we play our game. I'd like to think with pretty much the full complement (except Heath Evans, God I miss that dude) of players at our disposal that we can beat anybody.
