wow...I cant believe nearly everyone predicted Giants over Carolina.
Eli choked, Carolina defense held Barber at bay.
Carolina and Seahawks will meet up for the NFC championship.

Yeah and the Patriots are totally back by beating wounded teams I'm sure I'll get some 10 paragraph long essay about why Belichik is god that I won't bother reading Dillon had how many yards against the Jags? How many times was Brady sacked? How many fumbled balls by the Pats? They barely won. IF they play like that against Denver or Indy they will be destroyed.
Anyone upset about the Pittsburgh game? I was VERY angry with how Carson Palmer was injured on his second snap. Judging by the pregame antics; I wouldnt put it past the Steelers and their notoriety of almost doing it on purpose. I saw MANY plays that showed some dirty, on-the-verge-of-cheating antics... weird thing is, Cincy got called for doing some of the same things and Pittsburgh did not.
Oh well. I called the game the way I thought it would be won, even though I wanted Cincy to win. I just feel cheated that it was done by injuring Palmer and Pittsburgh not being called for a few pass interference, holding, and that one play where Chad Johnson clearly had the ball but then had it clearly stripped out to go out of bounds (and they ruled it an incompletion)

Hmmm. Colts rested... Steelers not... indoors... at home... How many Probowl players? How many from DEFENSE? Where's the 'IF' again?Originally Posted by natedogg

Pittsburgh outplayed the Bengals plain and simple. What, you didn't think Pittsburgh wouldn't score against a weak ass D that gives up on average as many as they gave up tonight. And that wasn't a dirty play. C'mon now. I would go on, but I'm tired. That was a no doubter in my opinion. Next weekend I give the edge to the Colts obviously, but don't count out the Steelers.

As a Giants fan, I was embarrased watching that game. Eli was the worst I've ever seen him.
Indy over Steelers
Patriots over Broncos
Bears over Redskins
Seahawks over Carolina
The only possible upset is Broncos beating Patriots.

I'm going out on a limb here (not really), but I'm picking all home teams this weekend.
Colts over Steelers
Broncos over Pats
Seahawks over Redskins
Bears over Panthers

The only reason the skins held tampa at bay is because of consitancy. Tampa has had a problem all year with scoring. I think they only went into the 30's like 2 times and there average was only around 18 or so. They got 10 which is expected. Washing is going to get totally mutilated, as my boys the "seapigeons" are going to romp that ass. Sure Cadillac is good, but is no comparison to SA. Sure Chris Simms is good, well actually not, he cant hold a match to Matts ass. The skins will be embarressd here next weekend and I see a Colts vs hawks SB with the hawks pulling out a win!!!Originally Posted by LCSULLA

Didn't we beat you guys once? If Joe can get that pathetic offense to acutally do a few things then it will be a game.Originally Posted by revodrew

Any one can get lucky once, to win twice, that will actually take some talent and skill. Which, your team has neither!!!Originally Posted by LCSULLA

the way brunell is playing right now skins are going nowhere. only if the seahawks hurt themselves they will lose. could happen though, it happened before...

The Patriots have now routed 2 lower calibur playoff teams, the Jags and the Bucs. It remains to be seen if they have rebounded and developed far enough to beat the better AFC teams like the Broncos or the Colts, but given their injury recoveries and recent level of play, most objective guys think those games will be interesting and unlike the lopsided regular season games.
As to how many yards Cory Dillon had against the Jags...... did he start the game? Nope. Hopefully he'll get healthy soon, but he hasn't been healthy since early in the season. The Patriots are going to need him from here on out, and hopefully his health and performance will improve. No question though it hasn't happened yet this year.
Insofar as Palmer's injury goes, anyone paying attention to the replays saw the Steelers tackle was pushed to the ground while being blocked, and fell on Palmer's leg entirely beyond his own control or direction. His reaction was clearly one of regret, not a Romo type of ha-ha, gotcha anyway I could. I'm sure he'd relish getting a good clean lick on Palmer or any quarterback any day of the week, but being pushed to the ground by your opponent and accidently falling on someone's knee to end their season is nothing any self respecting player would be proud of.

Eli threw the interceptions true enough, but Carolina simply dominated the Giants at the line of scrimmage, both sides of the ball. Had those interceptions gone as incompletions, Carolina still would have won the game handily, they simply were the stronger team. They took the Giant's game away from them on defense and were able to execute their own offense against them.Originally Posted by hannainnc
If they play their remaining NFC games the way they did yesterday, they will go to the Superbowl and may even win it. They looked that good.

I guess its just luck that we're 6-0 right now and going into the second round of the playoffs. And the Seahawks will choke, as they always do. Every year since Holmgren became the coach they have predicted a Superbowl birth, but has happened? NOOOOOOOOOO! Why the Seahawks always look better, because of weak opponents, then they really are.Originally Posted by revodrew
Is the 'Skins offense sucking right now? Yes, but this is JOE GIBBS. He will turn it around!

Yup, I am picking all home teams this time as well except for Carolina and the Bears.Originally Posted by natedogg
Though, I am now thinking the Seahawks won't be able to beat Carolina. Seattle had the easiest schedule of ANY team in the NFL this year.... Carolina IS inconsistent; so it depends on if they actually show up. But I don't think the Seahawks can beat Carolina; not after how the NYG would have beaten the Seahawks but for 3 missed field goals for the win.

First of all, you may need upwards of several beers or glasses of wine to calm your nerves on game days (choice optional). And you don't want to deplete yourself, so keep calories high by eating frequently throughout BOTH game days.
Also, you don't want to overtax yourself, so ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY NO projects "around the house" whatsoever on Saturday and Sunday. Even minor cleaning, laundry or ironing are just too much for the CNS at this critical time on the calendar. A spouse or significant other is just going to have to be patient and provide you with an extension to complete your various and sundry "honey-do" task list.
And if your team should lose at any time during the playoffs, you will still require the same PST (post season therapy) right through the super bowl, as it can take WEEKS for even the most highly conditioned fan to get their life back in order. The devastation and deep despair that come after a team loss during the playoffs are more than any human being can or should have to bear in this life.
