In response to BostonTrollSpanker's comment:
"what are you looking for next week?"
A lot of your predictions are coming true.
Seatlle is looming now as a number 5 seed or so and could be a real pain for a higher ranked NFC team like the niners, as we saw tonight.
As you point out, the Giants are all but out, it would take literally a miracle of dominos falling for them to get in now.
As for our side, I'm not as fancy as you, just hoping for two things:
- health (in particular Gronk and our defensive secondary). I believe health of these key positions trumps everything now, even getting a week off.
that is first and foremost, you are right. i started a thread saying as much (more than winning the last 3 games we needed to be healthy at the end of them).
- number two is getting a bye week. I don't care about the number one seed that much, the bye week to get our guys rested is the key.
thats my #2 too, but for that we do need help from kc or indy.
It feels greedy to hope that both Houston and Denver lose, surely the football gods are not that kind. :) I'd rather save some of that football god magic for a fumble bouncing the right way later in the playoffs...
yeah like in teh sb. ill take the magic bounce all way through the sb win :)
Houston losing is a real possibility, but not seeming as likely to me....since the division is not up for grabs. Though it would be awesome to watch Denver lose to KC if KC treats that game like their Super Bowl. I think in a weird way that Denver losing might be more likely than Houston losing, because it seems like Indy might not have a lot ot play for next week right? Since Houston has clinched the division.
actually i think the win makes them a higher seed than a loss i beleive i heard on the telecast today.
