#2. My understanding is that if we beat the Panthers, we are solid at #2, everyone else already has more losses than us (except of course, Seattle) or we have the advantage over them in tiebreakers no matter what else happens. If we lose to the Panthers, all kinds of crazy stuff can happen. We may not even get in at all.

Anyone else heard differently?

Re: Question for the forum?

Not trying to be negative, but what if we lose?
Are we wild-card worthy?

This team has 1 decent performance on the road (Chicago) and I wouldn't call Atlanta (barely) and Tampa (last minute heroics) solid performances.

They'll have to PROVE it to me and everyone this weekend. Otherwise, I don't believe it.

Re: Question for the forum?

Somebody posted this already -- but you can play around with all kinds of scenarios here:

NFL - Playoff Scenario Generator- Yahoo Sports

If we lose at the Panthers, the Panthers are the 2 seed, and we are the 6th seed. Doesn't matter what happens against Tampa.

If we are the 6th seed we will play either the Lions or the Bears at their house. If we win, in that game then we go to Seattle, again.

Re: Question for the forum?

If we beat the Panthers we win the division and have the #2 seed. Even if we lost to Tampa in week 17 and they won, we'd have the tiebreaker. We would still have the #2 seed even if we went 11-5 and the 49ers went 12-4 because they can only get a wildcard with Seattle winning the division. The NFC North and East winners don't pose any kind of threat.

It would be interesting to see how the Saints played week 17 if they do beat the Panthers. You would think they would bench guys and rest up for the playoffs but with a bye week coming and lingering issues from the Rams game I wonder if Payton wouldn't try to get them playing well so they have some momentum going.
