But who does GB want?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Assuming SF wins Sunday... Right now I don't think it matters if we get Detroit or ATL in the wild card round. We match up well, and would be at least a 7 point favorite vs. either But, of Atl, ...

Assuming SF wins Sunday...

Right now I don't think it matters if we get Detroit or ATL in the wild card round. We match up well, and would be at least a 7 point favorite vs. either

But, of Atl, Det, or the NYG-Dall winner, who would GB want in round 2? The only team playing well right now is Detroit, and I think of the 4, they have the best chance of beating the Packers.

At least maybe Suh can knock a few players out before he gets tossed himself

I'm thinking they wouldn't want the giants since they took them to the wire a few weeks ago.

Looks to me like hubris probably means they aren't worried about it.

Famous last co*ky thought.

Of those 3 teams, if I was a Packer fan, I would rank them in order of least wanting to face:

#1. Lions-Want revenge after Thanksgiving Day loss

#2. Giants-Giants defense probably could get to Rodgers early and often; Giants offense seems to get off carpet better than most teams.

#3. Falcons-Still feeling sting of playoff loss to Packers last year and blowing 14 point lead in re-match this year and want a piece of cheese!!

I would agree with this order

I hope they get Dallas, I know it sounds funny, but Dallas can beat the Packers, its just the way Dallas is built. Personally I want us to end up with them but I think they will get knocked off first..

I don't think they care who they get. They're praying that we get upset in the first round. We are their only threat.

That would be nice but I think the Giants and SF are threats too. If it gets cold here I just wonder how well you'll play. It hasn't been cold yet but the 20th of January could be a different story.

We haven't gotten much snow yet either.

Dallas is more afraid of the weather most years than the team. Since the Ice Bowl the NFL hasn't scheduled them in GB once after the beginning of November. They are prima donnas to the nth degree.
