NFC Divisional Playoffs: New Orleans Saints at San Francisco 49ers Open Thread

2006...2010...2011?

Drew Brees' Saints have some troubles travelling in the playoffs. In 2006, they came to Chicago and got absolutely shellacked in a snowy, beautiful game that sent the Bears to a Super Bowl that I don't remember the outcome of.

In 2010, there was some uproar about the fact that the 11-5 New Orleans Saints had to travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks, who won their division with a completely non-impressive 7-9 record.They lost a much closer game there, 41-36, but it remains--they aren't as good in the plyaoffs on the road.

That brings us to today. The Saints travel to San Francisco, where first year head coach Jim Harbaugh has done some impressive things, leading his team to the 2nd seed in the NFC. Two completely different styles of attack, two very different offensives--it should be a great one.
