TBH, I'm somewhat neutral in this game. If the Packers win, I want a major route. In the scheme of things though, we may not get a ton of opportunities to pick up games towards home field advantage with the Packers though. We are already the equivalent of being 2 games behind due to head to head. If the Falcons win, I have doubts that it will be convincingly.

I'll be both happy and disappointed either way. Probably leaning more towards hoping the Packers win though.

I will not be pulling for the 'Clowns to win the game (in other words, I won't be standing in my chair and cheering everytime they score...), but more for the game to end in a way that will be beneficial to the Saints and give us a chance of not having to play for all the marbles in GB. Right now we have Atlanta where we want 'em...below us. I want homefield advantage, too.

Just my $.02, though.
That makes no sense. Yea we need GB to lose, eventually, but we need to secure our division first and most importantly. If Atlanta wins they will have a tiebreaker against us. You never want to give a division opponent an advantage. Especially before we have played them. Whichever team wins it will help us, but Green Bay winning will help us more. If the Falcons win, then at least we can take something positive away from it, but it is in our best interest to the Falcons to win.
What if a key player gets hurt (without naming names) and we lose a few because of that players absence and have to play lights out toward the end of the season to catch up? We would be screwed if the Falcons lucked out and beat Green Bay. If it were later in the season, yea I would pull for the Falcons, but its WAAAAYY to early for that.

I must admit some of these thoughts have been creeping up on me as well. But then I stuff them into my subconscious by remembering how much I loathe the Falclowns. I'd much rather have the Packers win, because it helps our position in the division.

A dream day on Sunday would look like this:

Saints defeat Panthers (helps our divisional position)
49ers defeat Buccaneers (helps our divisional position and very plausible)
Packers defeat Falclowns (helps our divisional position and very probable)

Don't get me wrong, fellas. I'm not rooting, per se, for the Falcons. Just delighting in the suffering of the Packers

What happens in the Division, stays in the Division. But what happens outside the division; we can't control.

Regardless of the outcome, let's rehash this at the end of the season to see if the alternative would have mattered, okay?
