We have the most favorable position as anyone right now in the NFC, all we have to do is take care of business. I'd be shocked if Carolina beat New York and equally as shocked if they got the only road NFC South win at NO next week.

Crow....lol. What did I predict that went wrong? Learn to comprehend English before you ride in on this thread on a white horse thinking you're the bees knees.
Everything I said in the first paragraph was fact, aside from my comment about Garcia which is my opinion and something I still feel strongly about.
Then I said we have the most favorable position....SD and OAK at home. 2 teams with losing records coming from the West Coast into Tampa. Carolina lost to NYG as I expected and I still think they will lose to NO. I said we have to take care of business and we didn't. We had an outstanding opportunity and failed to take advantage. There's no excuses....we have a horrible pass rush, can't run the ball and can't stop the run. We don't deserve to make the playoffs, even at 10-6. It's hard to dispute that we appeared to have the inside shot going into the playoffs, with you guys being a close second.
So I didn't say make one regrettable comment in that post, and I am definitely not chowing on any crow right now. I expected us to beat SD and I expected ATL to lose to MIN, but I didn't say that in this thread.
We're still in a favorable position now (making the playoffs). Oakland is horrible and Philadelphia should be favored over Dallas. That leaves us as the #6 seed if things end up as the PUBLIC expects. At this point I'm looking forward to JaMarcus Russell throwing 4 TDs against our defense, because I can't expect much less.
You guys can brag because I expect the Falcons to win the division and continue the streak. That's a lot to be proud of. If I was a Falcons fan I'd be disappointed, however, because needing overtime to score 13 points against us in your dome is pretty pathetic. Our defense is a joke and we had Brian Griese starting for god's sakes. If you guys play like that in the playoffs you'll get eaten alive.
