    I feel you...But I would be so nervous about a round 3 matchup. To lose to them in the playoffs would be the ultimate heartbreaker. Losing to another team like the Saints or Packers wouldn’t hurt nearly as much.

    But also on the flip side of that, a win against those [email protected]!#ards would be so sweet. Just seeing the look on the "gum chompers" face when he knows his season is over would be classic. Fear no one bro!

    I think the Bucs would smash us but ok.

    I'd rather have the 5 seed.

    TB WR vs our DBs is as close to a nightmare as I can imagine. Patrick Peterson would be made to look foolish against Evans.

    You know I think Dallas with all their talent could end up looking competent by seasons end. I think whoever goes to Dallas is gonna feel a lot of self imposed pressure to not lose this game, while Dallas will soak up all the media talk that they don’t belong there. It’s kind of a trap game for the 5 seed.

    A trap game against Dallas is still better than a playoff game against Brady when he has talent to throw to.

    Traps shouldn’t be an issue.... our team is young and they will be excited to be in the playoffs.... losing focus is a bigger threat due to inexperienced players.

    I would be mad losing to Saints. They purposely hurt Kurt in 2009.

    I wouldn’t mind losing to Packers. We own them.

    I wouldn't bank on Dallas just because they beat an average Vikings and didn't look complete trash. Either way, whoever it is will be the worst team in the playoffs. And I'd rather play the worst team.

    Yeah, I'm getting worried we just don't have enough healthy bodies to make it there.

    Look at the teams behind us & their schedules & ask yourself who is gonna pass us?

    We make the playoffs if we win 3 more games.

    i guess this is as good a place to put this take:

    i see the Cardinals following a Bills like trajectory: 1st year Qb -- promise. 2nd year-- makes the playoffs / is a tough out 3rd year-- legit contender

    the Bills are in their third year and if i am Pitt or KC : i would hate to play them in the divisional round.


    so for this year-- the goal is making the playoffs and getting K1 that experience. Making noise in the playoffs becomes a bonus.

    We can beat anyone in the NFC playoffs...there aren't any elite teams there, and none with the playoff pedigree to scare me.

    We can also lose to any of them, because our own coach tends to choke in crunch time.

    I think our ceiling is 1 playoff win this year, but I will be happy just to get there.

    We are already better than Buffalo this year per wDVOA and we beat them. I hope we are better next year than they are this year.
