The Eagles are not a dominant team but if they and that offense are firing at 100% they can be pretty scary. And they're good on the road; better on the road than the Saints.
the Eagles are likely to be the 3 seed; thus, they cannot play at Seattle before the NFCCG (i.e. that would mean the Saints had already been eliminated).

Re: Playoff scenarios (bring some aspirin)

seachickens aren't that good.
they just think they are.

redemption is best served cold.
third time is the charm.


this is going to be fun, no matter what happens.

ya'know why? you aren't an atlanta fan.

Re: Playoff scenarios (bring some aspirin)

I'm thinking (or hoping) the beatdown on Carolina is the start of their 1-3 meltdown to end the season, and Arizona boots those Appalachian slopeheads out of the playoffs altogether. Arizona owns the tie-breaker over Carolina, after stomping that pompous panther ass 22-6 in October.

This is setting up quite nicely if you ask me.

Re: Playoff scenarios (bring some aspirin)

Its not out of the realm of possibility that Seattle drops 2 of the next 3 and finishes 12-4.

Its all for the fact that they heading to NY which you never know what the Giants will do, then 2 games vs division opponents.

I am trying to be optimistic here though, I just am waiting for the real Seattle Seahawks to show up like the real Falcons showed up this season.

But the fact is that, if both the Saints and 49ers win out (which is highly possible) the 49ers will get the 5 seed. That is because Carolina will have lost to the Saints again, and will have a worse record than the 49ers (thus Carolina's tiebreaker advantage will not come into effect).

The good/bad news is that we will probably know before the last game where we stand.

If the 49ers and Eagles both blow their easy games at Noon, the Saints would clinch before the game vs the Rams begins...

Re: Playoff scenarios (bring some aspirin)

So if Carolina somehow loses this weekend and we win, does that mean we at least have our division locked down?

Re: Playoff scenarios (bring some aspirin)

most 'what-ifs' will be cleared up by 730 EST tomorrow
if SEA beats the Giants, they are #1
if we win, we will win the south

not mathematically clinched, but highly unlikely otherwise
