Default Let's say you have been granted a football wish and you could turn one of our 2012 loses into a win

Which game would chose and why.

Houston would have 2 loses and we would have 2 loses with the tie breaker. Win out and we are the one seed.

I'd rather know I can beat NE in Foxborough.

Yes, but New England is the team I hate out of those three.

Some might chose New England because we could still lose to the Ravens and still get #2 seed if we win the last two games.

I'd much rather play in Houston than in Foxboro or Baltimore. I'd pick NE.

If you had chosen Houston we could likely have the one seed and all that brings IE The likelihood New England at home in the AFCC game.

At first glance many will chose NE but if you think about it we are better off taking the Houston win because it's a real good shot at the #1 seed guaranteeing home field through out the playoffs.

I understand your thinking, but I would still pick NE just because I think they are the better team, although Monday's game might prove otherwise. However, beating NE at Foxborough would go a long way towards confidence in playing them at home during the playoffs.

Couldn't agree more. Playing the Patriots at NE in January is a tall order for any team.

Even though I picked NE, I still remember some around here waving off the loss to Atlanta as no big deal, since they weren't even a conference opponent.

I know I'd sure love to have that extra W right now.

Why would anyone make a stupid wish like that. I would wish to have won one of the Superbowls we lost. Duh!

Not one of the choices but that was the toughest loss ever for me, even tougher than the SB loses.

I was going to say that but then we still need 1 more win for Superbowl, so I would change it to the niners Superbowl for sure. I had to hear about that one for years from a friend of mine who is a Niner fan.

wow really? The Superbowls still seemed worst to me. Especially the skins uug man we could have beaten them IMO. But yeah 96 was right up there with the Superbowl losses.

I can remember though being a really upset 7 yr old when we lost to Dallas. That one still may hurt the worst but its been so long we forget how much we all loved those Broncos.

I voted before thinking about it. Yeah I'd rather have HFA, but damn I hate New England.
