i don't take detroit seriously. i put them on the same level as the cowboys. they aren't the real deal.

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.

 

us because we mirror that team the most and the 9ers because they are really familiar with them.

San Francisco then us. I think the 49ers will get them in the title game or in the divisional round.

Megatron is good, but he isn't taking on that Seattle secondary by himself.

any of the playoff teams can beat seattle just not at home. they are a completely different animal at home.

Good Detroit will be able to hang with them.  Bad Detroit will get blown out.

 

I think that the Eagles could shock the world, honestly.  If they play mistake-free and execute well, they can score on anyone.  I'm not sure how many adjustments Foles makes at the line anyway, so the noise may not be as much of a factor as it would be for other teams.

 

Panthers have the talent to knock them down.  If we chew up the clock like we did in Week One, then we could pull it out.

 

SF maybe, but it would have to be a true defensive slugfest.

No, they won't

They don't have a very good defense and Stafford has been turning the ball over with regularity in the last month

2013 Detroit = lesser version of 2005 Carolina

 

We saw how that worked out in Seattle...

Really the team that is built best to beat Seattle is Carolina. We're the only good team in the NFC that has come close to beating them. Besides us, maybe San Fran because of familiarity.

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

 

Pie for imagery...

I honestly believe ANY seeded team could beat them in Seattle.

*Detroit could beat them if they could somehow manage to play a mistake free football game.

*Carolina will keep the game close, RW and ML wouldn't be able to run on us like they did on New Orleans. It would be a close game again and our offense is rolling nicely at the moment.

*New Orleans could beat them as well. It was great to see them exposed, but I believe they could take last night with a grain of salt and make the proper adjustments to beat Seattle's secondary schemes.

*Dallas has a stout offense with many receiving weapons and a good running game that could expose Seattle's defense. If the Big D's defense could keep the game close and force Seattle to make mistakes they could escape with a win as well..

*San Fran has almost the identical weapons on offense. Since playing Carolina, Kaepernick has been playing well with the return Manningham and Crabtree..
