There's been no team in the SB since 2012 that wasn't a #1 or #2 seed. This is why the Saints will break the streak this year.

If someone has a problem with us being the #3 seed, they can take it up with the Lions and Seahawks.

I understand where you're coming from, but we should've never lost to Cantlanta. They need to use that as motivation.

And the Saints, who are not blameless in this. All they had to do was keep the Niners to 45 points. The team is one CGJ tackle from a #1 seed.

I cant put all the blame on cgj. It takes a man of demarioís stature to bring kittle down and you still have to hope he goes down. That seattle game some of them boys had solid form on him and he still mack trucked emí. And cgj is a good open field tackler too but kittle is gronk 2.0

It's so hard to believe that 13-3 gave us home field advantage and a Lombardi. Now 13-3 has us in a wild card game. It just boggles the mind.

I wasn't blaming CJG. Just observing that if he could have made the tackle, then we would have had a chance in the game.

Lesson learned. Double Kittle on critical plays and have 2 people available to bring him down.
