    If the Playoffs started Now.

    If the playoffs started now, the Raiders would be the 7th seed in the AFC. Pittsburgh would get a Bye for the first week and we would be playing at the second seed team, the Kansas City Chiefs!

    Home field means almost nothing this year. Atlanta lost 4 of their 5 home games this season. Hope we bump that to 5 loses at home on Sunday.

    Home field means a lot. Fans are not the only thing that helps other teams out. Weather is the biggest home field advantage and always has been. Do you think Tampa wants to play in Green Bay in January? Or we want to play in Buffalo in January. You would be crazy to thing either team would. Fans or no fans home field mean a lot. Atlanta sucks so home field doesn't mean shit.

    What? The fans aren't the only thing here. Weather is a huge factor in home field as is the field conditions. Pittsburgh notoriously always has dog shit field conditions towards the end of the year because of how much the field is in use the whole year by multiple teams. Arrowhead in January? Yes I know we beat them there this year once and we went blow for blow with them last night but it could be 20 degrees and snowing in January there. Think about the Cleveland game we had and how much it hindered our offense.

    Home field is important if your team play outdoor....Fans are also important; but this year they are not

    Biggest advantage to home field these days is the lack of travel and the extra prep time the home team has.

    Home field advatage without fans ain't what it used to be but still can't be completely discounted.

    Wouldn't we have a bigger advantage in a blizzard than KC? Thinking our maulers over their deep pass game.

    Exactly, we saw it with our entire defense not practicing at all this week. Didn't we upset KC twice on Thursday nighters at the Coliseum?
