BOY DID THAT LOSS TO THE RAMS COST US!!!


Looks like we will be hosting either the Falcons or the Lions.

If we beat the Falcons, I think they end up being the #6 and we play them a 3rd time in the Wildcard round.

If the Falcons were to win or the Packers lose to the Bears (thus they would need to win against Detroit in Week 17 to ensure HFA over San Fran), then I think we see the Lions again.

Not going to be given to us regardless of who we play.

If we play to our capabilities, we won't be beaten until mid-schedule next year when Carolina stumbles into beating us on "that" given Sunday.

We are in the big dance and I don't care who we play. Monday night is Atlanta and at the immediate moment their next. First clinch the NFC South and possibly rest. Paytons got some tough decisions to think about. By playoff time we will be ready to go, it's not going to matter who we play we have to {and will} beat them all. It's not going to be 1 and done this year.

Hopefully Green Bay will lose in their 1st game. Avoiding the frozen tundra will put the NFC Championship game in the Mercedes Superdome.

Is it just me or does "Mercedes" give the Superdome extra bit of class?

Oddly enough, for me it does, even though I was against it in the beginning.
