NFC Championship 2013: Who Would You Rather See Lose?

Kevin C. Cox

As if this past season didn't already make Saints fans everywhere want to collectively bang their heads against a brick wall repeatedly, the post-season is shaping up to be even worse.

That's because the two most hated rivals of the New Orleans Saints currently, the Falcons and 49ers, have advanced all the way to the NFC Championship Game this Sunday and will vie for a chance to play in the Super Bowl. A Super Bowl that happens to be in New Orleans. This year's playoffs have basically been the worst case scenario.

Unfortunately, one of these teams has to win this Sunday; they both can't lose. And that leads us to our topic of discussion today. Which team - Atlanta or San Francisco - is less likely to make you wanna hurl when you think about them using the Saints locker room during Super Bowl XLVII?

I know the mental images are frightening and it's difficult to even think about, let alone discuss, but it's a conversation we need to have before Sunday's showdown. Are you able to swallow your pride and root for another NFC South team? Would you rather temporarily forgive the team responsible for destroying the Saints own Super Bowl dreams last year?

Let's hear your thoughts!
