We need to win on the road

If we lose next week, I will not be upset. I want to see how we would do in Philadelphia or Detroit because if we lose to them then that is truly sad because do we have any business in the sb if we cannot beat them on the road. All the recent sb winners have won on the road. Philadelphia and Detroit are not what SF was. I just believe that if we are motivated we can win regardless of where we are as long as it isnt in SF. We have already been to Seattle and they are going to use their last game as a crutch against us. That is how if we show up and capitalize on our mistakes they will be in for a surprise. The colts were a dome team and was able to win in Baltimore in the playoffs in 06. We can win on the road in a cold place if we try. But teams that get written off before the playoffs even start and ones that are elite mind you have been the ones in recent memory to take the whole thing.

Re: We need to win on the road

On the road in the snow, we need 1) a run game, 2) a defense and 3) no turnovers. Today, there wasn't any snow, defense wasn't horrible but could have played better, at 61 yards -- there was no run game, and we had 3 turnovers. .5 out of 3 won't get the job done.

Re: We need to win on the road

Chances of a visiting team winning are still low regardless. 58.8% of the time the home team wins. Things look bad for us on the road but if we manage to win the next two we are actually par for the course.

If we do it though announcers will still say we struggle on the road because that's what everyone else will be saying.

Before today's game, the Saints were .500 on the road. When we beat the kittens we will be back to .500

Re: We need to win on the road

Don't see how we are going to win against the Panthers having watched that poor performance at the Rams. Their crowd noise wasn't even a factor in this game!

Hopefully we will beat the Bucs and get a wild card, but thats about as good as it gets. How things can change, we looked so good earlier in the season.

So, dismantling the Panthers last week was a fluke, then. What about the when the Panther's lose? Is that just a fluke too?

We are at least as good as the Panthers, you know how you can tell?

I don't buy the road thing -- except possibly in Seattle. We will figure this out. If not, we aren't a great team -- just a good team. And frankly, I think we want another party with the Lombardi in Drew's career.

We always play exceptionally well at home.
I think we just play up/down to our competition on the road. On the road, we beat Chicago, and we should've beat NE. Both of those teams are leaps and bounds better than the Jets and Rams.
We were just bad vs Seattle that Monday night, but I think it would be a much closer game if we played them again.

Besides the Seattle game, when we have played good teams on the road, we have played well. If we play a bad team on the road, we play bad.

I expect the Carolina game this week to be a pretty close one. I don't think we'll blow them out like we did at the Dome, but I still think we're very capable of winning.

Re: We need to win on the road

Next Sunday is the difference between the #2 seed and the #5 seed (at best)
