Part one of the plan is complete. We beat the Saints. With the Rams coming through this week we now only need 2 more wins (including the last game of the season) to take the division and the #1 seed.

You guys are hard to root against, TBH, with Sherm and Pettis, and Kittle seems nice too. In a vacuum, I'd be very happy for you.

No argument from Hawks fans that the 49’ers are good and should be favoured to win the division. I just want the Hawks to finish no worse than in the first WC spot so, at worst, they get to play the NFC East “winner” on the road in the first round of the playoffs.

Same goal applies: Beat the 49ers, and win the division.

Ditto this part.

I'd be okay with that. Watching you guys destroy the Cowboys would be a fun start to the playoffs.

I was watching on a huge delay, so had to avoid this thread during the game, but yeah, that surprised me too. I surmised that perhaps they had an angle that made the spot clearly appear short? But it looked like they made the line to gain to me.

Yep! But one team will probably get a first round bye and the other will probably get the Cowboys, which is almost the same thing.




(I kid, I kid... I actually kind of like the Cowboys when they’re not playing the Seahawks.)

Don’t want to face the Rams again this season so holding my nose and cheering for the Cowboys on Sunday.

Injuries and illnesses catching up with the Hawks.
Clowney & Kendricks Akron already ruled out.
More to come.

Very nervous about this road trip.
