I never said I was "scared" or wanted to "avoid the Packers" I said I don't think Atlanta or Dallas has the caliber to beat Green Bay. I think we are the only team capable of that. I also said, and I quote, "stranger things have happened." I don't give a flying **** who we beat to get to the Super Bowl, as long as we get there.

I want the Saints to beat the snot out of Dallas in the NFC Divisional game in New Orleans. Just because I would just LOVE to see that!

The NFC in the Dome would be huge, unlikely though. We will play Green Bay in January, they are just like us in so many ways. They laid their egg against the Chiefs like we did against the Rams. They became more dangerous with the loss because it took that unbeaten pressure off and it will be their wake-up call,like the Rams for us. We are the only team in the league that can beat them at their own game, it will just have to be on their own field.

The Packers are looking more and more like the 2010 Saints -->

INJURED

They can try to deny it, but once the playoffs start, the attrition will bring them to their knees; with ANY playoff-caliber team.

We, on the other hand -->

H**L**Y Well, I'm not gonna just come out and SAY it yet!! LOL

That would be BAD JU JU

I think it actually made them a little LESS dangerous, because now they are not chasing the perfect record anymore, and they don't really need to do much of anything except make sure they end up winning one more game than everybody else... I didn't look it up but I'm guessing with the tiebreakers they pretty much have home field locked up. So rather than being a wake-up call, the loss could actually kinda backfire, and make the Packers get a little soft, coast a little bit, take their foot off the gas, knowing they'll only have to turn it back "on" for the playoffs.

Kinda like when the Saints looked flat and boring and DULL against Tampa Bay in December '09; the winning streak was over, we would have liked to have won that day, but Payton clearly knew that we didn't NEED that game, it wasn't do-or-die. So I felt like they closed the playbook and kinda coasted through the second half that day. Why show more stuff to opponents on film, let's just hand off to Lynell Hamilton a bunch of times. I think you might see the Packers doing a bit of that, late in the season, now that the streak is done.

I agree. Packers have been a little stumble-y of late, and I think the Saints are playing at a very high level. Drew had 412 yards last week against a terrible Vikings team. He had 419 against the defending champs week 1.

I have a feeling that Monday night the Saints are going to dismantle the Falcons. For some reason I'm feeling uneasy about the Carolina game, but I really don't fear any team out there. But it's true, on any given Sunday (or Saturday, or Monday)....

I just want to see San Fran, Cowboys, and Falcons lose, lose, lose.

I may be in the minority here, but I have had the feeling all year that the Packers go down in round 1.
