Wow, what a week last week. Going into the half of all the morning games, just about everything was going our way. Then all of a sudden, Washington decides to do their thing. Dallas does a something. It all rolled down hill. Luckily, the Eagles out of nowhere took TB out of the fight. So at least thats one less dog to worry about.
On a note, alot of you guys got what you wanted. The Rams beat the Bills. Their draft order is now worse. Hopefully they dont win out and we dont lose one more before week 17.
Anyway, onto the WEEK 15 GAMES THAT MATTER. *as usual, these will only cover games that can have a direct impact on Seattle
VIKINGS (7-6) vs RAMS (6-6-1)
Lets Go: VIKINGS
Why: Once again, I sit in a windowless room with no light coming in. Many of you wont back this one up. So what are my reasoning's? In reality, with the vikings, we have to lose two games and the Vikings win 2 games for them to overtake us. Technically, we have to lose 1 game out of the next two and Rams win out for them to take over. I dont know if you guys know who Jeff Fisher is, but if it came down to a week 17 matchup for the Wild Card, I would be scared. Jeff has already shown he can out coach Harbaugh. Their team is already steamed that they let Charlie Whitehurst take the crown 2 years ago. This game has a horrible smell on it. Do not want to have it come down to this.
BUCCANEERS (6-7) vs SAINTS (5-8)
Lets Go: SAINTS
Why? Neither of these teams should affect us any longer unless we collapse, and if we collapse, we have other teams to worry about more. For the time being though, TB should be held in their place.
GIANTS (8-5) vs FALCONS (11-2)
Lets Go: FALCONS
Why? I thought about this one for awhile. While technically the first seed is still available to us, it comes at a high risk. The Falcons would have to lose out. We would have to win out. SF has to lose this week. Giants have to lose at least one more after this game. And the packers have to lose one more as well. So whats the high risk? GB doesnt lose out and takes over the #1 seed and now can host the entire playoffs from GB. I hate them so much. The last thing I want to see is GB secure home field advantage throughout the playoffs. For the time being, I assume Atlanta will take at least one more game, so lets get the Giants knocked down one more and help us secure a better seeding if we take the division.
STEELERS (7-6) vs COWBOYS (7-6)
Lets Go: STEELERS
Why? Uhg, it hurts to say that, as I never want them to win ever again, this time would be beneficial to us. As we technically have a 2 game lead over Dallas because of head 2 head tiebreaker, why even give them that chance. Plus, seeing Romo cry again could be fun.
49ERS (9-3-1) vs PATRIOTS (10-3)
Lets Go: PATRIOTS
Why? Once again, this is a no brainer. And if the stars were ever to align, this game would be in the linear path of those planets. The Patriots should handle SF easily. I think we can all agree that out of all the non-seahawks games next week, everyone will be watching this one.
PACKERS (9-4) vs BEARS (8-5)
Lets Go: BEARS
Why? Currently we hold tie breakers over both the Packers and the Bears. Both these teams are most likely going to win their next two game after this. (Packers vs TN,MN)(Bears vs AZ,DT). Both these teams should handle that business. But this game could drop GB back to our level. And again, us winning out would guarantee us a spot over one of them, and if SF loses this week, it guarantees us the #2 seed. Of course, GB has to lose this game first.
REDSKINS (7-6) vs BROWNS (5-8)
Lets Go: BROWNS
Why? Redskins have a better conference record then us at the moment. A tie between them would mean a loss of position for us. Cleveland is on a role right now, so its not hard to fathom the skins dropping this one on the road. And the questions of RGIII's injury could mean an inexpearianced cousins starts.
All other games are AFC matches or teams out of the race.
