Since the Seahawks won the game last night, that makes us the #1 Seed in the NFC! If we take care of our own business, we are right back where we were last year.

The way I see it, we are fighting 2 things for the rest of this season, and the Playoffs. The Ref's, and our problem on offense.

These are the 2 things we can't really control. We are what we are at this point. The Ref's are going to do what they have been doing to us all season long. They have it in for Sean Payton, and are doing everything they can to show him that they aren't controlled by him. I think it's Al Riveron who is flexing his muscles.

The #2 and Slot Receiver problem is not going to go away. At this point, there is nothing that could be done about it anyway. I still believe, though, that Coach Payton has something up his sleeve that nobody knows about, waiting to unveil it at the right moment.

Things are beginning to shape up to what's going to happen in the Playoffs. We now are pretty much set in who the best teams are in the league.

Saints, Ravens, Seahawks, Niners, Packers are the best teams. Elite, if you will. Tough teams are: Vikings, Patriots, Bills. Above average with a chance: Dallas, Kansas City.

I believe we can beat any of these teams, and we will come out of the NFC going to the Superbowl if we just take care of our own business. Geaux Saints.

I still don't trust the Chiefs defense. They've improved in pass defense over last year,but are worse against the run. In the playoffs
the latter is usually more important.
Oh absolutely, I agree. Their defense will still be their Achilles heal in the post season

I understand the comments that currently being the #1 seed really doesn’t matter with a month of football left to play. Even so, I’d rather be sitting at the top controlling our own destiny than to be behind looking up. It’s all in front of the team and there for the taking. Let’s hope coach comes up with a great game plan this week and our players execute it. Who Dat!
Amen. You would think we would be thrilled to be good enough to be the #1 seed with a month left. Yes, that can change with a loss or two, but I'm still happy to have that positioning as of right now.

I know it may sound crazy, but looking at the possible matchups I’m not sure if I even want the top seed. Right now we would likely get the winner of Dallas and the 49ers unless the Vikings go into Green Bay and beat the Packers. I much rather play the Packers than the 49ers or Seahawks.

So the top seed will likely get the Seahawks or 49ers, who are two of the top 3 teams in the NFC IMO, in the second round unless the 6 seed beats the 3 seed or the Packers get the 2 seed.

It all depends on this weekend and how we look against the 49ers on whether I want the top seed. I think I’ll be pulling for the Packers to get that 2nd seed, but doubt that happens. I want homefield to go to the Super Bowl, but I also want to win that first playoff game for even a shot at it too.
I want the #1 seed, even though I get your point and I am not dismissing it. I want it because it guarantees that whomever we play, we play them in the dome.
