NFC Divisional Round Game Open Thread: Saints v. Seahawks

Who needs Russell Wilson? Not us! I REALLY WISH WE HAD RUSSELL WILSON. - USA TODAY Sports

Join the conversation in Battle Red Blog's live open thread for the first NFC Divisional Round Game of 2014 between the New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks.

The first playoff game of the weekend is here, and it could be a good one. I say "could" because when these two teams met last month, the game did not live up to the hype. I have high hopes for the rematch, if for no other reason than the opportunity to make a parlor game out of how many times the announcers trumpet the excellence of Russell Wilson and Drew Brees while declaring that they have made any perceived height requirement for NFL QBs completely negligible in today's NFL.

This is your open thread for Saints-Seahawks. A new open thread will publish at 7 p.m. CST for Colts-Patriots. If you're looking for a complete schedule for the 2014 NFL Playoffs, here you go.
