Playoff Opponents
 
The six teams in the NFC are set, but there's a long way to go with seedings. Here's how it stands right now:

1. Saints
2. Eagles
3. Vikings
4. Cardinals
5. Packers
6. Cowboys

Right now we would play the winner of the GB-Ariz game, or the Cowboys if they beat the Vikings.

The Vikings could move to #2 if they win and Dallas beats Phil. They could drop to #4 and have to play GB if they lose to NYG and Ariz wins

Basically we could play anybody but Philly in the divisional round.
So who do you want? No poll, just choices and reasons

The Cards..because i think we could get pressure on Warner and force some turnovers...they are still dangerous but i like our chances against them and the Eagles in the Championship..

I don't want to face any of them at the moment. Every team on your list can beat us handily considering the way we have been playing for the last month. Since we can't stop the run, I'll go with the team with the worst run game and say the Cardinals.

Don't matter who the Saints play.

If they play well they WILL beat anyone.

If they don't play well, they might beat anyone or they might lose.

And the Saints could face Philly in the Divisional round. Any scenario where Philly loses Sunday puts them as the 5 or 6 seed with the possibility of playing the Saints in the divisional round.

The only team the Saints WILL NOT possibly face in the divisional round is the 3rd seed.

That could be anyone but the Packers. So the Saints could see any of the 5 other playoff team in the Divisional round.

i agree w/ you. i dont wanna play any of those teams right now. if i had to pick, though, it'd be the cowgirls. we played awful, and still almost won. i think we get it right the second time around.

...but, the saints better play awesome and show me something on sunday against the panthers. cause we look like **** right now!

Thay all look problematic to me. Thank goodness we are in the Dome.

Remember the other thread that referred to NFC Scenarios

I think I prefer the Cards 1st game which means that:
the Cards have to be a winning number 4 seed in the wild card playoffs and the number 3 seed (whoever that is) wins through.

If I could choose, I'd prefer to play a team that didn't have elite pass rushers. To me, that means Arizona. I'll take the Cardinals if we can.

we're supposed to have elite pass protection. i dont know what happened against the cowgirls. got to get better production from our tackles, as far as pass blocking goes.
