(unbiased opinion) Which NFC team has the best chance to knock off Seattle?

43 posts in this topic

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.

    • I hope not because I wouldn't have a clue how to pronounce his name. Is that an L or an I? 
    • I would love Tarik, balled out at my alma mater. Would be great for him to be a panther.  
    • some people are assholes for their own benefit. like yeah i believe you were a bowtie boy and i believe you logic'd yourself into affirmative action bake sales and such but to me there is a fundamental difference between a person who is just wrong and a person who harbors terrible beliefs from which they stand to gain. yeah i ridicule both but imo there's being a smug dork calling for an end to minimum wage and there's literally blaming victims of rape for their rape. i would leave my sister/wife/daughter in a room with college republicans because like what are they gonna do, impose a flat tax on them? but the type of person who says "well what did she expect? men have their hormones you know..." is someone who has probably had some uh...questionable sexual encounters. and yeah i know you tried to draw a parallel between yourself and arsen wrt the specific topic at hand but it seems like you were trolling and dumb whereas this dude's literally going into biological justifications for rape. convert the willing sure but nothing he has posted leads me to believe he is willing.
