Okay so Seattle has pretty much locked up the #1 seed in the NFC.  The Saints and Panthers will likely get the #2 or #5 seed.  San Francisco will probably get the #6 seed after losing to both Carolina and the Saints.  The NFC North winner is looking like the Lions and the NFC East will either be the Eagles or Cowboys.  Which of these teams has the best chance to knock off the Seahawks in Seattle?

 

I honestly think San Francisco has the best chance to knock off Seattle at home, and from where they're probably going to end up in the playoffs, they'll have a chance to do it before the NFC Championship game.  They are very familiar with the Seahawks and already took a beating from them early in the year.  There's a trend of the regular season winner losing in the playoffs if teams meet again in the playoffs.  And now with Michael Crabtree back on offense, they have Kaepernick's favorite receiver back.  The 49ers have a chance to down the Seahawks in San Fran later this year.

 

So regardless of whether Carolina gets the #2 or #5 seed, if San Francisco ends up the #6 seed, they would play Seattle at home in the second round if they won in the first round (lowest remaining seed always plays the highest seed).  This would work out great in Carolina's favor.  That win over San Francisco was the biggest of the season so far, up until this Sunday.

 

Who do you think has the best chance to knock off Seattle?

Seattle is the best of the NFC.

I want it to be the Panthers in Seattle for the NFC Championship.

To be the best, ya have to beat the best.

Today, at this exact moment I honestly think it's Carolina, followed by SF.  It's clearly not the Saints.

Us.

 

Not even being a homer, and mostly the rest of America seems to feel the same from what I've been hearing from ESPN and NFLN.  We're more physical than the 49ers and Cam is a better version of Kap... he can also burn a defense with his legs/size/escapability combo like no other QB in the league if you let him.  For some reason we didn't seem to want to let him run at the beginning of the year.

us or the 49ers.

 

looking at their schedule, losing in san fran (just because it's a divisional game) is a real possibility as is losing to the giants in new jersey.

 

now you may laugh at that last one, but the giants are known for turning around a season and they've shown over the years that there's no team too big for them.

 

worst case, imo, they still end up losing only 3 games on the season and because they beat us in week one, even if we won out and had the same record as them, they would still get homefield advantage.

Seattle would take Detroit by the throat, rip its head off and poo down its neck like Shao Kahn on bath salts

Seattle would murder Detroit.  Schwartz is an idiot, Stafford is a turnover machine, and they have no defensive talent outside of their front four (the back seven is terrible). Advanced metrics rank them as a middling offense (basically Stafford to Megatron chucks and an occasional Reggie Bush big game) and a bottom ten defense.

I think Detroit could step up and easily out duel the Seahawks in a shoot out. Yeah, they won't have many defensive stops, but neither would Seattle if Detroit played at their best.

I know... that's a big IF.

us or the 9ers.
