Not saying it is or isn't the matchups I'd pick, but imagine how great it would be to go through Seattle, NY, and Atlanta on the way to the SB. Probably the 3 NFC teams I'd most like to see the Packers smack down this year.

The only possible matchup on paper I would not feel good about in the playoffs is the 49ers.

Strangely enough I'm more scared of the 49ers if Alex Smith is starting than Kapernick. I get what he brings to the table in that extra dimension, but I believe he's more likely to give the Packers something they can hopefully capitalize on. I agree it's probably the most scary match up, but if it comes down to a slugfest and who makes the fewest mistakes... well, we pays our moneys and we takes ours chances, right?

Agreed, I don't want to face the Niners. I feel like they would dominate the trenches on both sides and control the flow of the game.

I don't want to face the Giants either, as they seem to just have our number recently, but I think we match up better against them. Plus, the added revenge incentive would be sweet.

I really want to face the Falcons. Ideal playoff scenario: 3rd seed, play Seachickens, exact revenge for Inaccurate Reception, play 2nd seeded Niners, Woodson picks off Kaepernick 8 times, then NFC championship in Atlanta, and Rodgers puts on his favorite shoes and dominates.

Notes: Jets lose Chargers game. Only really losable game on their schedule TBH. Pretty close though. If they win that then they are in the playoffs. Chicago loses a tie breaker with Seattle and Washington in this situation after losing one game :shock: Packers game is going to mean a lot for them. Also Falcons losing the #1 seed is sort of big.


We could get this #1 seed....Atlanta could lose any division game really TBH...only have to have one loss from SF which has Seattle and New England on their plate...

I don't like facing that D-line but if we can run the ball on them some it will help our guys out. You really can't run the ball on the 49ers and then when it is 3rd down, Aldon Smith can just pin his ears back, thats what is dangerous about that team.

I have come to grips with the fact that NOBODY is going to like this team in the playoffs outside of our fanbase. Everybody will be able to pull up some dumb stat about how we aren't that good. Like -AP ran fer 210, they run defense sux- or just -Their defense sucks- in general because of last year. Or we can't run the ball because we haven't had a 100 yard rusher in blah blah blah. I am still worried about our pass protection and everybody getting on the same page, but people act like we lucked into our record, hopefully we stun some people and go on another Super Bowl run.

After looking at the schedules here is how i see it shaking out for the NFC

1. Falcons 13-3
2. Packers 12-4
3. 49ers 11-4-1
4. Giants 10-6
5. Seahawks 10-6
6. Bears 9-7

WC

Bears @ 49ers

Seahawks @ Giants

Divsional Round

Giants @ Packers

Bears @ Atlanta Hardest pick for me. Toss up. I guess Atlanta.

NFCCG

Packers
@ Falcons

I think us and New York do this dance in Lambeau one more time.

If I had to guess, I say we get the bye and host SF.

UNLESS Seattle beats SF in week 17. Looking like a SF/GB rematch though...

all those opponents are good adversaries.
It's what makes the playoffs so good.
It would be nice to show Giants, Seahawks and 9ers the door.

A win over the Bears seems so old and played out.

Just posted this in GEN, but here's my thoughts RIGHT NOW
NYG lose only to BAL
ATL beats DET and TB
49ers drop 2 to NE and SEA
SEA wins out
WAS wins out

1] ATL
2] GB
3] SEA
4] NYG
5] SF
6] WAS

SEA over WAS
NYG over SF

GB over SEA
NYG over ATL

GB over NYG
