Should be interesting. I'm most intrigued to see if Adrian Peterson continues his dominance in Lambeau.

We seem to always struggle with Seattle so our match up should be interesting. Not to mention Russell is basically coming home so people in my area may be a bit torn lol.

I think we'll see him go for about 140. I expect the Packers to have a much easier time next week and the Vikings will have to pass more to catch up. Normally that would knock a RB down to 80 or so, but he's still AD.

Seattle-Washington is the game that I think will be the best of this round. Seattle at home probably takes it fairly easily, but being in Washington should make it an interesting game.

SuperPacker 12-31-2012 12:22 AM

The Vikings/Packers game comes down to how well Ponder plays. We all know AD is going to rip us to shreds, and we all know Rodgers will get points against this Vikings defense. If Ponder is decent, the Vikes could win, if he sucks, we'll win. It'll be interesting seeing him at Lambeau.

That's my plan to. Now it's GB's turn to make my plan come to fruition and dominate the game and get up big so I can relax

Yes, and I will hope Justin Smith will be able to heal up to maybe have a chance to play in the meantime against our initial opponent. I will also hope that San Francisco signs another kicker to replace Akers.

SuperPacker 12-31-2012 02:05 AM

Aldon Smith hasn't had a sack since Justin Smith got injured.

Yup. He's also faced Tom Brady and Russell Wilson, two guys that don't get sacked that often, or rather, they're difficult to sack. He's been able to get heat on quarterbacks. He just hasn't finished recently. He started off the year kind of slow as well, and that was with Justin Smith. Manny Lawson and Paras Haralson also played with Justin Smith and weren't able to do crap.

Finally play offs are here! It's been a long road this season. A lot of up and downs for 49ers but glad we made it to the play offs and the first round.We need it big time. I agree with that Akers needs to go and we need a new kicker . He has missed easy field goals this year!With Making the 63 yard one in week one. He should of been making all the field goals all year long.

You got it easy.. try having Crosby.

Tu shay man . Both teams need new kickets.

That seems unreal to me. I was gonna say the Seahawks have the best chance to win of the wildcards, but I didn't think they'd be favored.

gpngc 12-31-2012 01:17 PM

I thought they'd be favored by 1 or 2. The line might go down before the game.

farfromforgotten 12-31-2012 01:35 PM

I like both home teams to win on Saturday and both road teams on Sunday. Indy vs Baltimore is the game I'm most looking forward to watching.

All 3 stud rookie QB's will be in action on Sunday. Awesome.

gpngc 12-31-2012 01:37 PM

I dislike that Seattle's game is the last one. That means I can't watch any games without NERVEZZZZZZZZZZZ.

Line will probably go down by game time.

I'd say the team that can keep the opposing QB in the pocket has a chance to be successful. Probably good for both sides that they see similar offenses every day in practice.

Raiderz4Life 12-31-2012 01:41 PM

I'll be rooting for Seattle because I think they got the best shot at SF and I like Pete.

I think itll be good for the Skins to play at home as underdogs. Fuel the fire. RG3 has shown me he has the attitude to take that and build on it. Well see. Going to be fun.

Smooth Criminal 12-31-2012 01:52 PM

Pretty good slate of games. Love seeing all the rookies, watching Peterson take the Vikings into Lambeau could be awesome. Cincy vs Houston is the least interesting to me, but hopefully we get a good game out of it.

FuzzyGopher 12-31-2012 01:53 PM

Playing at Green Bay in January, possibly without Antoine Winfield, is going to be a tough task. Our secondary needs to not play like **** and Ponder needs to be near flawless.

gpngc 12-31-2012 01:57 PM

I like BALTIMORE'S chances of a Super Bowl run. The perception is that they suck but they are actually just as good as the previous two teams that were good enough to get to the SB but were just unlucky with Cundiff/Evans and the drops two years ago.

OSUGiants17 12-31-2012 01:58 PM

I got a strong feeling that all of the wildcards aside from Cincy win this week.
