    The Seahawks are going to play in Chicago, where they've already won once this season. If the Packers beat the Falcons (which I believe is more than possible), the NFC Championship would be played in the stadium of a 7-9 team. How crazy would that be?

    I highly doubt this would happen, but the prospect of a 7-9 team trolling its way into the Super Bowl is just hilarious.

    Sea Hawks to the SB?...It is a completely pathetic thought. Hopefully this doesn't happen.

    That's a lot of ifs. I don't see the Seahawks as good enough to pull it off. But you never know in the playoffs.

    Do you realize the only home team to win a playoff game this weekend was a below .500 team? That-is-outrageous!

    I could see them pulling the upset next week and hosting the NFCC, but they're not going to beat NO, Chicago AND GB consecutively

    Chicago has a much stronger defense than New Orleans and will be playing at home. The Seahawks' Cinderella story ends next week.

    This Seahawks storyline reminds me of the 2008 Cardinals storyline. They pull a big upset at home (Atlanta) that people said they had no chance, then everyone says they have no chance the next week (Carolina).

    Seattle can beat Chicago. If Cutler has a cutleresque game it won't be close.

    If the Seahawks made it to the Super Bowl, they'd finally be above .500!

    hasselbuckle is a pretty good QB. It would be really funny if they won the SB. well except fo rthe pats not winning it.

    If it's pats vs. seakennies I don't know that it's a cakewalk though. They look pretty tough-eroo.

    Packers at Bears for the NFC title would be epic in terms of league history. I'd like to see that. In fact, I think it stands a solid chance.

    Just curious, but why all the hate for the Seahawks? They happen to be my favorite NFC team and I just want to know. If it's because Pete Carroll is their coach and because he didn't do much in NE, get over it. It was over a decade ago.

    I think people are writing off the Falcons a bit fast. I didn't think the Eagles would give the Pack much of a challenge, but the Falcons are a different story. If the Packers beat Atlanta in the ATL, I will be shocked.

    what hate?

    The threads we have had on playoff seeding have generally all reached the consensus that Seatlle deserves to be where they are right now.

    They're just a really bad team. Kudos for beating a depleted Saints team, but one win doesn't justify anything. Even Cleveland beat us. Does that mean they deserve a play-off spot?

    Some teams finish with a poor record because they play in a tough division or their schedule had them play some of the power divisions. The Seahawks just sucked. They didn't even get hot down the stretch, going 2-3 in their past 5 games but somehow still winning the worst division in football and being guaranteed a home playoff game.

    All it's going to take is Lynch having another huge day, plus a crucial Cutler turnover or two (pretty much a given), and SEA could come out of Chicago with another W.

    Seems like a lot of people around here were ignoring BB's "0-0" playoff mantra when the glibly wrote the Seahawks off vs. the Saints. (Not to mention ignoring what 2001 should have taught everybody).

    Agreed. Falcons are a very, very good team. Well coached. Disciplined. Good Qb who has playoff experience. Solid talent on both sides of the ball.

    Since the Pats game, GB has been also playing very well (your could say that they played great vs the Pats). They smoked the G-men and played a grinder vs CHI. They are playing hard right now.

    Both teams are 3-3 vs playoff teams.

    I don't know who will win yet. I think it'll be close. Real close.

    You deserve at least one home game in the playoffs if you win the division. This is the rule. The Seahawks deserve to be in the playoffs. Quit whining.

    I don't hate the Seahawks, (though I don't care for Matt Hasselbeck) but I just can't root for 7-9. Just can't do it. It's strange because I usually like to root for underdogs. The Cards in '08 were underdogs. I saw them as "good enough to win even if they weren't in the best division". I see the Seahawks as "bad team that just happened to play in a division with three other bad teams that in any other year would have no business being anywhere near the playoffs."

    Normally, I'd agree. The entire NFC West was just an extreme case of ineptitude.

    Watching Hasslebeck in the 4th qtr totally collapse after playing like Montana all game was comedy, he's done that before. Watching them grind out the playoffs will be fun to say the least.

    Go Seahawks!!!

    This isn't aimed at you specifically, but it's the thought that the Seahawks aren't good enough to be "likeable" underdogs that pisses me off. Seriously. What exactly are the "qualifications" to be an underdog? Being 7-9 and facing the defending world champs in the first game is about as underdog as it's gonna get, and people just wanna see Seattle go away. It just irritates me because their city in regards to sports has had little to no success outside of their WNBA team's recent title and the Sonics of the 70s and people want them to have nothing. Christ, most of you guys saw how hard these guys played and how hard their fans cheered when we played them in 2008 and just yesterday. And as much crap as SOME (not all) of you guys give them, their fans sure as hell cheer louder then Pats fans. And that's not a slight, it's the truth.
