  • Since we own the tie breaker with GB, don't we also own home field in the NFC Championship game if GB can survive that long? :?:
    Thanks Seahawks for a fantastic season. Get some rest because next year you play 2 more.

  • No - we are a lower seed. Unless Minny beats GB and Falcons then we will not have a home game. We also would have to beat Washington and SF for that to happen.

    Lowest seed always travels to highest seed.

    It's how we got the Beast Quake game back in '10. So I'm ok with the rule.
    It's payback, Russell Wilson falling way back
    In the draft, turn nothing into something, still can make that

    No, you just mad we wont get a home playoff game. the system works exactly like it should which is just fine. You want a home playoff game? Take care of business and win your division.

    I love that the division championship actually means something in the nfl.
    Radish, check your PMs. Man upstairs has an invite for a tail gate up in heaven with your name on it.

    Yeah, it's set up so that the lowest seed has the hardest path, at least on paper.

    The system is right. We just didn't win enough games in the regular season this year. Hopefully, our guys learn from that going forward. All the comments about which game lost us our shot at the div championship are so much noise. The truth is, you never know how a given game will really affect the final seedings. So, in the spirit of ComPete, you play every game like it matters, because it does.
    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.

  • If Braylon Edwards makes that catch in the endzone Week 1 in Arizona then we're in the 2 seed. Every game is huge.

  • Can't we just blame the Patriots for not beating the niners?

    According to this the Vikings would face the Niners in the 2nd round not the Falcons:

    Read the associated text in that link; don't just look at the graphic.

    Lowest seed goes to highest seed. Always.

  • We need to bring back the replacement refs and let them make a ruling on this bad rule. We hosted NO because we won our division and it was the opening round. Plus, the Seahawks set a record by being the first team with a losing record to win a division. That alone deserves home field advantage. Now if Green Bay can whine incessantly about one call for months on end, I demand a new ruling on this obviously bad rule.
    Thanks Seahawks for a fantastic season. Get some rest because next year you play 2 more.
