  1. NFL PLAYOFF THREAD!!!!


    So who you guys got winning this weekend? Who do you forsee in the SuperBowl? I'll post up my Preview and Picks here in this thread a little later, but I figured this is a good time to start a discussion on the playoffs. We actually have a chance to see a Colts @ Patriots AFC Championship, AND a Green Bay @ Chicago NFC Championship!!! That would be the Ultimate in my opinion, but it's not necessarily how I see these playoffs working out.

    What do you guys think?
    IN 27 YEARS I'VE NEVER GONE 0-4 IN WILDCARD WEEKEND!!!
    until now. yup I put money on every game too. excuse me while i go drink myself smart.

    I think the media is hoping for a Philly\Atlanta NFC Championship game. I personally am hoping for a Steeler\Ravens AFC Championship game (more likely Steelers\Patriots).

  3. Glad I didn't post previews. I went 0/4 for the first time in my life!!!! WTF!?!?!

    And Fastone - the Ravens - Steelers AFC Championship Game is impossible. They play next weekend.

    I'd LIKE to see Green Bay @ Chicago NFC Championship (the NFL would nut itself), and by process of elimination I'd like to see Baltimore @ New England AFC Championship. Why? Because I loathe the Jets, and Baltimore would be a relatively new team in the Super Bowl.

    Had the Colts won, they would've been in Pittsburgh this coming week and the Ravens being the then lowest seed would've gone to the Patriots. That would've set up that possibility.

  5. All the games were pretty good this past weekend. The only one that bored me was the Kansas City/Baltimore game. I can't wait to see the games this upcoming weekend - especially the Packers/Falcons game. Go Packers for the NFC win, then a Packers/Patriots superbowl with Packers for the win.

    Packers beat the Pats....are you smoking crack? they won't even beat the bears if they face them again.....wait and see.

    pats over ravens, chicago over GB and an 85 rematch bears over pats with the pats winning.

    i don't like that cause i'm a bears fan but that's how i see it.

    No, I'm fresh out of crack. Green Bay over Atlanta this week, then Green Bay over Chicago. Patriots and Green Bay in the Super Bowl for a '97 rematch with ANOTHER Green Bay victory.

    Keep talking like that, and you won't be invited to the after party...

    Yeah, though... as much as I want a Green Bay victory I think the Bears will take the NFC. I'm still going to root for my team until they're out...

    Really I'm just extremely happy with the Packers two wins over the Vikings this year. Although I think Green Bay/Chicago is probably one of the biggest rivalries in that division, I personally loath the Vikings more than any other team on the face of the earth. That in my book is a success for the season. I'll probably end up rooting for whatever NFC teams takes it to the Bowl. And even though the Patriots will probably win, I despise them and will root against them.

  10. Sorry fellas, the Steelers are on the "Stairway to Seven".

  11. patriots are the best team in the playoffs...the only team that can beat them is the packers and it will be a Patriots vs Packers superbowl, but this time the Patriots win not like back in '97. Packers hands down are the best team in the NFC. If somehow the patriots dont make the superbowl, the packers will win it all because no AFC team would beable to stop Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews

    Aaron Rodgers is not the problem with the Packers, of course. It's their receivers who play like they rub butter all over their hands before a game. If their receivers can catch the ball and they stay on top of their running game, yes.

The Packers do look good but if you think they're just gonna run through Atlanta, think again.

    I'd prefer the Steelers to win over the Patriots any day, but the Pats just seem like a more solid pick. I guess we'll have to wait and see. I'm definitely thinking Pittsburgh over the Ravens. I don't think Baltimore will walk all over the Steelers like they did Kansas City. Cassel chocked in that game from the start.

    The Falcons/Packers match up should be awesome. The Packers were already beat by them once this year by a last minute field goal, but a win is a win and the Packers are going to go into Atlanta pumped and ready to give some payback.

    I can't wait for the Chicago/Seattle game either. I think Chicago will take the win, but I don't think Seattle will get the stomping everyone seems to think they will. Hopefully this game will be an old-fashioned shootout.

    Actually, it's been around Steeler Nation for a bit now, I just felt it was time to use it

  18. if seattle plays like they did against saints....... Chicago is looking for a rough game

    It should be an excellent game, but Seattle won't have home-field advantage this time.

  20. ****WARNING***** The national weather service has issued a falling bird warning for Pittsburgh next Saturday starting at 4:30 and continuing until the end of the fourth quarter. Falling birds could be heavy at times especially around the Heinz Field area. Heavy accumulation is likely.

    It must be an epidemic in Pennsylvania. The same thing happened to some birds in Philadelphia last weekend...

  24. Bears will destroy Seattle IMO... Seahawks were playin on pure emotion last week, after creepin into the playoffs and at home. Theres no way hasselback will have another performance like that, and the bears defense should shut down lynch and any chance of a run game.

    But then again theres always the chance of "bad" cutler showing up like he did against greenbay a couple weeks ago.

    I would love to see the NFC come down to Bears vs Pack

    As far as the AFC, i mean pats are dynamite but wouldn't it be hilarious if the jets pulled another one out this weekend?

  25. I'm rooting for ravens!!!

  26. Steeler factoids

    The Steelers are chasing a 7th super bowl in their 77th season, BEN is # 7, who is in his 7th season, he was also the 11th pick. In order to advance, he must beat the Ravens for the 7th straight time, for a chance to possibly avenge a loss 7 seasons ago, against the team that just so happened to win 7 seasons ago. If Ben wins number 7 in 11, it would also be his 11 playoff victory...

    Now don't you all feel enlightened

    So are you trying to say he should endorse 7-11 stores?

    I can't wait until this weekend to watch some football!

    Brady is 6-1 against the Steelers...but every game is different !!!

    I fear the Ravens the most in the AFC..

    The Steelers and Ravens are two different fruit from the same tree, The Ravens offense just looks smoother at times. they both hit you in a way that will knock your thought process outside of your helmet. Should be another great low scoring game

    Yes, every game is different and everyone should at this point, be at their best which is why I think this Jet\Patriot game will be a lot closer and more contentious than most people think, the fact that Rex Ryan is a ass notwithstanding.

  30. Go Pats....I am looking forward to this one, I hate waiting all week for football to come..

    This is also my prediction....I want revenge from SB32

  32. The road to the playoffs may go through New England, but the Ravens are taking it this year.

    We will see, I am looking forward to the ravens game today....I am not a fan of the Ravens but today I will root for them, I just hate the steelers.

  34. Bart Scott: Welker's 'days in a uniform' are numbered

    Jets inside linebacker Bart Scott is not laughing off Wes Welker's Thursday comments that included several references to the word "foot," in what many saw as poking fun at New York coach Rex Ryan.

    "I'll tell you what," Scott said, according to Newsday. "Be very careful what you say about our coach. His (Welker's) days in a uniform will be numbered. Put it like that."

    Welker made 11 references to the word "foot" during his remarks on Thursday, which seemed to be a joking reference to the "foot fetish" videos on the Internet that are believed to feature Ryan and his wife, Michelle.

    Ryan would not be drawn into that particular debate on Friday, saying "I can take it. I'm not going to discuss it, but I can take it."

    But Antonio Cromartie, who called Tom Brady a nasty name in the New York media early this week, saw it as evidence that the Patriots do talk trash -- but apparently it is buried in some kind of indecipherable code.

    "If you read in between the lines, a lot of what they say is directed toward us, but they try to clean it up," Cromartie told Newsday. "It's different, but they are doing the same thing. At the end of the day, it's trash talking no matter how you try to put it, how you try to clean it up."


    Trash talk is one thing but this is a little much IMO

    Stay Classy Bart !!!!

  35. Sexy rexy !! the gift tha keeps on giving..

    hahahahahaha!!, Rex on his toes. I will say this though, don't let the Jets win this game because the verbal fest will go to another level.

  37. STEELERS!!!!!!, nuff said

  38. Looks like the Packers are currently stomping a mudhole into the Falcons...

  39. It's turning into a concrete hole, lol

  40. Great games today. I'm glad I'm not a Ravens fan or a Falcons fan.
