When I first saw the field in Green Bay I thought they dyed the field brown...I have a feeling it was like playing on concrete.

Good wins for both the 49ers and the Saints. I think they both have theirwork cut out for them this coming weekend.

The Panthers will be waiting for it, I'm sure, so the 49ers have to pick their moments to turn Kap loose. Hard to call a winner. I've felt that the 49ers are the best team in the NFL, but the margin between winning and losing is razor thin, and it gets thinner with each passing week in the post-season. The thing that works in the 49ers favor is that they should be able to stop the Panthers offense. If they can't and if Newton has a big day, I think the Niners are screwed. But I'll take them to win a close one in Charlotte.
It seems like the 49ers have been living on the edge for the past four games...wining late, which isn't a bad thing necessarily, most good teams win close games. But traveling to Carolina next week may be one game too many for late game comebacks. I take the Panthers in a very close game.

New Orleans vs. Seattle. I know people love Seattle for the obvious reasons. Playing at home. Beat New Orleans down pretty badly only a few weeks ago. I think you can throw that out the window. The Saints are a veteran team with leaders and skilled players on both sides of the ball. The Saints have better coaches. I would not at all be surprised to see New Orleans win this. I'll have to choose Seattle, but it will be tighter than people think.
Yes, with way Seattle offense has struggled of late it will be a very close game, but Seattle defense, especially their DB against Brees, I have to give the edge to Seattle.

I'm thinking that 49ers may have trouble with the Panthers, looking back at their season, they have had quite a few close games and field goals. Best of luck to both teams.

The field at Lambeau is heated, but the grass still doesn't stay green in winter. This article explains it, field actually has a sand base and is not frozen!

I think there are two side for the Niners. One is, the defense will play great. The other is the offense will move well, but has to score TDs instead of field goals. I can certainly see Carolina winning the game, but wouldnt be surprised if the Niners blow them out either.

I thought the way the game started 49ers would blow out the Packers, be ahead 14-0 but they settled for 2 FGs, kept the Packers in the game. Packers red zone isn't what it was for whatever this season, but I was surprised the Packers patch work defense, with so many players out, were able to hold them. I don't think they can play that way, beat the Panthers.
