Anything to avoid the Packers in Green Bay until the NFC Championship. Playing at the NFC East champ then at Atlanta doesn't scare me as much as playing in Green Bay.

We are going to have to do this on the road, which is a very difficult task. However, the team that beat us in the SB did exactly that.

This is assuming the 6th seed doesn't win their first game as well. Then we'd end up playing at GB/San Fran in the second round, regardless. Agreed that our opening round game would be better in this situation though.

I thought it was Carolina that were the road warriors during those playoffs?

Playing in Green Bay might actually favor us. The weather should be bad, which favors the pound it out on the ground type of football we accel at and they don't.

I have a feeling if NE would have won, you wouldn't have posted this. I'll take a home game any day of the week against any team over an away game in the playoffs.

On the NFC side, maybe. They weren't feeling much like road warriors when they left Qwest Field. The 'Stealers,' I believe, were the sixth seed in the AFC that year. If I remember right, they whipped Denver and the highly favored Colts along the way. The Colts had HFA througout, so they were well rested for the game.

Actually not true. I've been saying it for a couple of weeks now. Once the Bears lost to Green Bay and I knew the #2 seed was out of the question, I was rooting for New England. IMO, easier road to the NFC Championship as the #5 seed than the #3.

NFC #5 - Only 6 of 18 teams have advanced past the Wild Card round (33.3%) and only two teams (11.1%) have ever reached the Conference Championship. But only one NFC#5 seeded team has reached the Super Bowl, the 2007 New York Giants. And in that year they won it all.

NFC #6 - has to play at the minimum the #3 and #1 NFC seeded teams in the playoffs. However, unlike their AFC counterparts the NFC #6 seed tends to see a slightly greater amount of success. 9 NFC #6 seeded teams (50%) have advanced past the Wild Card round. No NFC #6 seeded team has ever advanced past the divisional playoff round.

All we have to do is win one of our two remaining home games.......one in which is against the Rams who will already have their golf clubs out and bags packed for Hawaii.

If we lose the next two home games we don't deserve to go to the playoffs.

Correct about the Stealers. That was the year the Bungles won the division and they took out Palmer and Kitna came on to lose the game.

If we beat SF the GB will be #2 and the #3 team will have to go to Green Bay if they beat #6. Of all the playoff teams GB and Seattle would be the two biggest homefield advantages in the NFC. If we lose to SF they could end up #2 and GB #3 meaning we are almost assured the #6 seed if we get in at all as we'd lose the tie breaker with NYG and WAS.

That is the worst case scenario. A win vs SF is huge for our confidence and playoff positioning. i'd much rather Have SF be #3 seed and even if we lose to Rams and get #6 seed I know we can win at candelstick, we almost did it on thursday night playing as carppy as we did.

I do not fear playing in Green Bay; I look forward to it. Our boys will make fondue out of those cheese dicks and shut that haters up forever.

At this point, the Seahawks just need to win. They have the luxury of playing their last two games at home. I feel that the way this team is playing, that they can win both of those games. They are all big and the best thing for the Seahawks is to give themselves the best seeding possible. Do the best they can to keep the pressure on.

This team is on a serious roll right now, they just need to keep that energy and they can beat anyone regardless of their seeding.

Not true - Green Bay won the Super Bowl year before last as the #6 NFC team (same year we were 7-9 and beat NOLA).

They should. They've won 10 of their past 11 games, should have beat us at home, and would have the most extra motivation of any playoff matchup against us.

If you don't think they'd be licking their lips at playing the Hawks at home in the playoffs, then you're fooling yourself.

We embarrassed the Packers once, we can do it twice. They proved after the game against us they aren't mentally stable enough to be able to play us again without spazzing out and falling into a complete spiral. Guarantee they'd cry to the media about it again too.

We embarrassed the Packers? I'd hardly call getting a gift TD on the last play of the game "embarrassing" somebody.

Plus the packers are getting healthy, Clay Mathews is back, Greg Jennings is back, and Jordy will be back soon. Aaron Rodgers is probably the best QB in the league and it would take a miricle for the hawks to go into a disgruntled Green Bay and impose our will on them. I don't expect another 8 sack first half.

I want to play the floundering Giants or Cowboys, or a RGIII vs RW #3 and let the amazing rookies decided who is better. I'd alos love to be the team to knock out the Niners to creat an even more bitter rivialry.

ATL's homefield is nothing compared to the GB's

We sacked them 8 times and they were given gifts of their own, theres no "shouldnt have won" involved.

Right. Don't pretend a 50/50 call exaggerated by the media into the worst call of all time makes the rest of the game go away. The Packers didn't beat Seattle in an any sort of predictive sense. It was an even game and Seattle was a lot worse back then.

I rather not have a bye.

I just have a bad feeling with bye's because the team gets rusty. Rather be hot!

Look what happened to the Packers last year, and us to Miami this year. Seems like a trend.

I never said we shouldn't have won (although there's a solid argument for that). I said "embarrassed" is not a word I'd use. 58-0, that's embarrassed. 50-17, that's embarrassed. 14-12 with last second controversial TD? Not embarrassed.

None of those sacks in the 2nd half.

Exactly my point. Avoid Green Bay in the NFCC semis. Barring a #6 seed upset (Vikes/Giants/Cowboys/Redskins going into San Fran and beating them), the #5 seed avoids the Packers until the NFC Championship.

Despite our publicized road woes, I think they're a thing of the past. I really like our chances at Washington/Dallas then at Atlanta. Green Bay in mid-January scares me. I think we matchup well (especially if Sherman is still playing) and absolutely can win, but now as confident as I am against any other NFC foe. The Russell Wilson coming back to Wisconsin angle is intriguing as well.

If we make it in, we deserve it. That includes if we lose out and get help to get in, though that isn't a likely scenario.

If we don't make it in, we don't deserve it.

This isn't the BCS.
