We re somewhat in the same position as last year, we got two big games to win to give us a huge momentum to the end of the season.

Based on last year, this is the most critical game of the year. We lost it last year bigly.

Was 5-0 just all smoke and mirrors? What incredible force turned this team from perfect to mediocre? Did the coaching staff inadvertantly adopt a losing mindset after Bye? INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW!

Agree....if we can come away with a win I think it could be a turning point for this team. Need to make last years post bye game a distant memory.

And Randy Moss can still catch it. Welcome to the geriatric league. No thanks.

That Washington win was enormous for them. But Walsh lost that game for Seattle. New Orleans is looking good too.

If mike Evans isn't suspended a game, I fully endorse Sendejo going full tomahawk missile on goodell the first chance he gets.

Wow. Three missed field goals, none longer than 49 yards, and they lose by 3. Ouch.

And to think ... I felt sorry for Walsh until he made a field goal in the preseason and started taunting the Vikings. What a dufus.

There was a lot off fights happening this week. Mike Evans's hit was defiantly a cheap shot.

The league needs to take a hard look at itself. Players, owner, and fans are very unhappy. I can see this getting a lot worse if Goodell doesn't wake up and do his job.

The Coaching staff in SEA didn't do themselves any favors either. Rodney Harrison pointed it out on SNF pre-game: They were playing man coverage at the end when all they needed to do was play a safe cover 2 zone and tackle. I'm not sold on that team, they are not the juggernaut they were 3 or 4 seasons ago on defense. Some of their hype is based on reputation vs. the current product. They are good, but they are not the best team in the NFC.

LAR have played a soft schedule.

NFC is up for grabs right now.

I was stunned to see that.

Not the 159 yards, but the 37 carries. You just don't see that in the NFL anymore.

Does anyone know why we are the current #3 seed for the playoffs?? On NFL.com it has New Orleans as the #2 and we beat New Orleans.

My guess is because our QB situation is unsettled.

I don't think head to head helps in seeding.
