    The defense was awesome last night. N.O. couldn't mount to much of offense last night. The defense seems to be better every time they play. Go hawks. SF this Sunday.

    True enough. The first third of the season the Seahawks 'played down' to the level of their opponents due to injuries, especially on the O line that allowed WIlson to be sacked far too many times. But that was then and this is now.

    The line (and the conventional wisdom) on last night's game was Seattle by 4-1/2. But the lopsided final score should offer some insights into just how unreliable conventional wisdom can be.

    Since it's probable that Seattle will have home field advantage throughout the playoffs (barring a disaster in the last few games), Carolina will be at a distinct disadvantage at the Clink, no matter how well they play beforehand.

    Plus they could also lose to the Saints and fail to make the playoffs at all . . .

    Who was their QB then? 5 times to SB, back to back wins, QB tough as they get, thrived in cold weather.... different team altogether.

    I think the 49ers game is pretty winnable. SF isn't the same team it was last year. Now, they have been back on the upswing and the game is in SF. But still, I'd bet on the hawks.

    If Denver didn't have Manning, where do you think that would be in their division. Probably somewhere in the middle or the bottom with the Raiders.

    No reason to be, since you won't get past the Patriots. :p

    Peyton won't even lead his team out of the division.

    I don't think that's historically accurate. However, even if it is accurate, please don't rain on the parade. :D

    Seattle is playing great, but....it's not who you play but when you play them. SF is getting stronger with players returning. Carolina is better, so is Seattle, but 4-5 weeks from now who will be the best....time will tell! It's the sucker team that scares me, a team with no chance that comes in here and beats Seattle. Notice how they play close to so-so teams but blow out the good teams. Watch out for a GB team with a bad record but a healthy Rodgers....just one hot afternoon and he can lead GB to victory over any team any where. A tight game with a wild card team it only takes one mistake to lose the game....muffed punt? a fumble? Another team to keep eye out for is Arizona....kinda scary especially when carson palmer is not color blind. Going to be fun! When your team doing well it makes you stay interested in all the other games going on.

    No, but they have Peyton's #. If you listen, you can still hear the chant, "Who's your daddy...."

    I believe the "O" line played very well last night. It appeared to me that New Orleans' game plane was prevent Marshawn Lynch and the running game from beating them, and they succeeded in that regard. Play after play, they were able to stop Lynch. However, Seattle proved last night that focusing on Lynch can be a problem. Wilson (thanks to the "O" line etc.) were able to use the emphasis on Lynch against them in an impressive fashion. IMO

    Wilson wins the MVP (IMHO) if he takes them at least to the division championship.
