But Detroit hasnt been in the playoffs in 13yrs either. I feel If their is another NFC team (other than the Saints) that can "keep score" with GB its Detroit.

As much as I love the Saints, they have limited ability in Lambeau, of course if they get there. The Saints have a long mountain to cross before that can happen.
Home field has a great advantage for the home team but the Saints, in my opinion, have the better team. Better o-line, better run game, similar WR's, TE's and QB's on offense.

The Saints have better special teams (thanks Sproles) and I believe that the Saints defense is better at stopping the run. The Packer's back seven is better than the Saints, though.

If the Saints meet the Packers in Lambeau, they have a terrific opportunity for success. If the weather is poor the Saints superior running game is favored.

And whodatcat, Matthewt has been around awhile. Don't be too quick to question his loyalties.

OK, I removed the trolling comment. But, I don't understand the "dog crap" analysis. WUWT?

BTW, I just got banned from the Falcons site. Ha!

After the Seattle loss, they came over to our boards and just ripped us. I haven't let them forget it.

They were blaming the Monday night loss on the refs. I called them class-less and said Atlanta is NOLA's poor step-sister. Guess I should have said what I really thought: Atlanta's fan base is as big a pu$$y as their team and their coach.

It's not a big deal Who Dat Cat. MathewT is trying to say how anyone is playing right now doesn't mean anything if they lose in the playoffs. AND Green Bay has the intensity that the Saints had in 2009 which is a strong case. We did have the momentum and we were unstoppable.

I don't think he's trying to be antagonistic. He's definitely a loyal Saints fan.

Some on this board make strong comments with hopes we all stay serious and focused and that it permeates from the Fan base to the team

The article doesn't get off to a good start when it says Packers had to come from behind in the 4th quarter to beat NYG. They didn't. Packers never trailed in the 4th quarter in all that 19 game win streak.

Well sure but the Lions do actually play the Pack every year. So that's 20 straight losses on the road.

EDIT: Maybe it's 19 straight losses but you probably get the point.

Looks like it will be 49ers vs. the Saints. Hopefully stlouis can knock off the 49ers the way they did the Saints so we can get home field advantage. Of course this is all assuming the Saints dont fall apart again and either lose to Detroit or Atlanta in the playoffs. If Atlanta gets the 5th seed they will play either Dallas or Newyork and assuming they beat either of those teams would then go onto Greenbay to play the Pack. Since Atlanta is playing Tampa and Detroit is playing Greenbay, I will bet you that Atlanta moves to the number 5 seed. This would place an already very angry footbal team in the Detroit Lions against us once again at home in the Dome. On the flip side of this if Sanfrancisco loses on Sunday to Stlouis that would then give us the first round bye and the Lions would have to play the Niners first. I sure hope we can win against Carolina on Sunday and Stlouis smashes the Niners. This would give us one more week to either prepare for the Niners or the Lions. In addition to that Atlants would be playing against either Newyork or Dallas in Newyork or Dallas. Im going with Newyork on that one. Long story short Atlanta makes it to Lambeau and the Niners make it to the Dome. NFC championship possibly between the Saints and the Falcons? Hmmmmm....that one would be alot of fun to watch.
