I don't hate the 49er franchise, just douchebag and douchebag jr (Harbs, and Kaeps). In fact we use to be in the AFC West, I hate the Broncos and Raiders far worse :P

They will be this year's team to end up a puffed up 14-2 with an overblown sense of self-confidence, just like we've already seen from this thread.
look in the mirror and you will see the difference between the two and the best chance of getting to the superbowl. home sweet home

2 of the last 3 NFC #1 seeds have lost in the Divisional Round, allowing the #2 seed (or highest seed available) to have home field in the NFC CG

I agree with the #2 seed being almost as valuable as the #1 seed

Re: How I think rest of Season will play out.

If the playoffs started today:

#6 San Fran @ #3 Detroit
#5 Carolina @ #4 Philadelphia

Best scenario is San Fran upsetting Detroit and having to go to Seattle, where both teams can brutally beat up on each other. Obviously, Saints fans would hope for a San Fran upset.

So the Saints playing a home game vs Carolina/Philly winner and then potentially playing the NFC CG vs San Fran at home (payback time). That's the road to the Super Bowl for me.

Re: How I think rest of Season will play out.

Carolina looks tough right now. I think they are more of a challenge than the Hawks, for us at least because they are division a opponent (I dont think Carolina is a better team than them).

It is all wide open right now and the NFC looks tough regardless of who is in; that HFA is going to be huge in the NFC.

If you look at the league from just a statistical point of view the Saints have the 2nd ranked offense and the 4th ranked defense; the combination of a great offense and great defense is being overlooked, and no other team in the league has that combination.

Sadly I feel the same way, as everyone seemed to already annoint him. The refs better be fair and not try to tilt the game in Denvers favor if Seattle is winning... just to fulfill the predictions and year long storylines. Maybe im just dubious from SB XL...

Yes because of necessity, not choice. Linebackers are typically there to stop the run, not cover tight ends unless there are third a long situations. Most teams don't have a guy like Chancellor to blanket tight ends so what choice do they have? What is a team suppose to do, we don't have any physical safeties so I guess we'll let Graham run free??

I don't, I think we would handle Denver.. I would love to see Welker, Decker and Thomas go against the legion of Boom. Denver already got a taste of them early this hear and they were manhandled by us. No amount of bias officiating is going to change that imo.

I could live with this scenario. It's gonna be hard to get the #1 otherwise.
