Default Saints vs. Seattle

Do you think the Seattle Seahawks can pull off a miracle against the defending Champs and why?

No chance in hell. The Seahawks, nor any team in that division, have any business being in the playoffs. But since they are, the Saints will win handily.

Cool Anthony's Pick

SEATTLE 21 (+10 1/2), New Orleans 20 - As if the NFL doesn't have enough hot issues on its plate these days, between the 18-game schedule and the seemingly-impending lockout. Well after this result, you can add a nasty internal cat-fight over the playoff seeding format. This is the largest point spread favoring the road team in postseason history - yet the Saints have never, repeat never, won a playoff game on the road! Not only that, but they will be without both of their top two running backs, Pierre Thomas and rookie Chris Ivory. Furthermore, a "Super Bowl Champion Jinx" seems to be developing alongside the better-known Super Bowl Runner-Up Jinx, in that it's been five years since a defending Super Bowl champion has so much as won a playoff game the following season. And if that's not enough, what our cousins across the pond like to refer to as "wintry showers" are in the forecast for Seattle on Saturday - exactly what a domed-stadium team needs. It all adds up to the week's upset special - and about a half-dozen more "Yes" votes for changing the procedure under which teams are seeded in the playoffs at next spring's owners' meeting.

Saints 35 - Seahawks 15: Truth be told there is no way the Seahawks can keep up with defending superbowl champions. This wont even be a close game. Drew Brees is going to throw 3 or 4 touchdown passes. 2 to Colston 1 to moore 1 meach. And the Seahawks will go down in history as the WORST playoff bound football team in history.

Game over in the first quarter.

The "perfect storm" may be gathering: Let's say the Packers do beat the Eagles. That would send 10-6 Green Bay, not 7-9 Seattle, to Atlanta to take on the Falcons, with the Seahawks playing their divisional playoff game at Chicago. Then, next weekend, the Falcons lose, and the Bears win.

In that case, supporters for changing the seeding format will likely gain enough votes to carry the day at spring owners' meeting.
