So Dave's post the other day got me thinking and I've decided to put down my ideal scenario for the next few weeks.
1. Packers 14-2
2. Niners 12-4/13-3 (depending on whether they can beat the seahawks in seattle)
3. Falcons 11-5
5. Saints 11-5
6. Bears 9-7
Follow me after the jump to see how I got here and what I expect to happen in the playoffs.
First the Regular Season
Bears beat Pack - Cutler comes back and rejuvenates the bears
Eagles beat Cowboys - Coz you know the cowboys will choke it when it looks like they have a way in
Giants beat Jets - Coz you think the Giants are crap and they have to prove you wrong
Panthers beat Bucs - Coz I want the panthers confidence up for the next week
Falcons beat Saints - and its going to be a mediocre to bad game for Ice but we still pull out the win
Pack beats Lions - Pack comes back angry after two straight losses
Bears beat Vikes - Coz vikes suck
Giants beat Cowboys - truthfully I fully expect the giants to shit the bed in a win and your in scenario especially when they are favored and are at home, but since i dislike the cowboys i will give the gmen the win
Panthers beat Saints - Sending Cam-mania into overdrive (think tebow time)
Falcons beat Bucs - Giving us the division for the second straight year.
and then the Playoffs
Saints beat Giants/Cowboys - Coz you know both of them will shit the bed against the saints
Falcons beat Bears - Falcons take down a full strength bears lineup avenging our season starting loss
Pack beat Saints - Entertaining game that the Saints barely lose
Falcons beat 49ers - Matty has a poor game again but we still pull out a win returning the favor for years of NFC West misery.
Falcons beat Packers - Avenging the regular season loss as well as last season's playoff exit
Falcons beat Texans - Avenging the regular season loss (beginning to see a pattern??)
So we win the superbowl while having beaten every team that beat us in the regular season.
I've had a gut feeling the falcons are superbowl bound this year but I didnt want to jinx it so I never put it down on paper. But as you can see this scenario is unlikely enough to be completely unjinxable :)
