I'm going contrarian big time this weekend!
I just realize that would be 4-0 for the home team.. hmmm
Jets, chiefs, eagles, saints.
The dream? Philly, New Orleans, the Jets and Baltimore.
The reality? Philly, New Orleans, Indy and Baltimore.
I want Baltimore in Pittsburgh so bad I can taste it! I'm sorry to say I think Pittsburgh will have to embarrass Manning and the Colts then go to Foxboro.
Colts vs Jets.........I pick the Colts to win although I will root for the Jets. (sorry EZ but that is out of respect for the Colts)
Chiefs vs Ravens......I pick the Chiefs
Saints vs Seahawks.....I pick the Saints
Packers vs Eagles........I pick the Packers (sorry Paulie)
NFL Schedule: Playoffs
Sanchez has his "coming out game", again, but not a good enough team effort to be a decisive win. The Colt's pass-heavy offense only gets half the field--whichever half Revis isn't playing on, really limiting P-Man's options; he tries to force balls, resulting in at least two INTs.
Cassel get sacked throughout, putting him in a position where he makes ill-advised rushed passes in the second half. At least one pick 6 for the Ravens. Flacco plays good enough to win.
A nail-biter. Both Rodgers and Vick throw for an absurd number of yards. Kuhn scores on at least one third-and-goal. Akers kicks the game winner late in the fourth, and the Eagles defense makes a stand for the win.
A slow start in the first quarter, as the Saint's don't execute like their life is on the line--maybe from a sense of entitlement about getting the win. But the Twelf Man gets silenced in the second half as Brees makes the Seahawks secondary look silly, which keeps the secondary at bay and opens up the run game for a fourth-quarter clock drain. Three possession game.
At least one of these picks, the opposite will happen.
It will be a cold and very wet day in hell tomorrow for the Aints.
Brees has small hands. He plays in a dome. His tiny hands will be cold and numb..and slippery. N O has not won an away playoff game in ...forever.
N O hasn't played in a cold and wet game outdoors in....forever..
N O has nine injured players...Bush's first game back from a broken leg. The cold and wet will be excruciating on Bush's recovering leg.
I predict 6 false starts against N O. Number twelve WILL be a factor!
The only one of these picks I really feel confident about is the Saints, I could see any of the others going either way.
Of my four picks, the only one I feel really confident about is the biggest upset of the bunch: The Seahawks.
Take the money line on that one. This isn't last years Saints.
No they're not. But this year's Who Dat's are still better than this year's Seasquawks. If any of these wild cards are the dark horse, it's Green Bay.
