Not that Carroll could actually do that (with his ego) I think.
I think if the hawks did not want to win this game, with the cardinals, all they would have to do is sit Wilson & other starters. And you're right. Carroll's ego would not allow him to do that.

Not necessarily; If we win next week and the Falcons somehow beat the Panthers in Atl. We have the division I think

You are correct, but ATL is only worried about tee times at this point...

They haven't clinched their division yet, niners can still catch them. Win today and they clinch everything.

Seattle isn't laying down, they're just in a hard-fought game right now.

I'm sorry, I can't see how we are the other "strong team" in the NFC. We have serious issues keeping Brees upright and our receivers just don't get the separation they once did down field in this offense. The running game is almost non-existent. Also our money play... the screen out of the backfield, has been defended very well in the past two games.

Right now after losing three out of four games, and splitting out last ten, arguably we are not a strong playoff team, and I don't see how this team can go on the road and get a win even in Philly, Dallas, or whichever team from the central you want to throw in there.
