Arizona was impressive.
Colts had the Bolts by the throat twice - and failed to really step on it - twice, crap.
nobody does D like the Ravens!
like the Dude says - "aww, come on man, ya know - i've had a bad night and i just really hate the f****** Eagles, man!"

go Giants!

I find it interesting that everybody except nhzoso talks like Carolina's not even there, and to those of us who support this team, it feels a lot like 2004 when a New England field goal was the only thing that kept us from winning it all.





I don't know if that's a good thing Matt, as you see what happened to my AFC SB team prediction...LOL

I agree though that Carolina looks very impressive as long as their secondary can hold they should win it all IMO. Don't worry about the no respect thing thats what everyone said about the Pats years ago too, even after they won the 1st SB alot of people here said they would never win another.

Hmm...


The Ravens looked GREAT! The Cards surprised everybody by edging the Falcons. The Chargers got by with Sproles. And the Eagles just got the game handed to 'em.

The Ravens defense stepped it up...AGAIN. Ed Reed is just the best defender in the game...PERIOD! And Joe Flacco is so poised. The man's got heart, I tell ya. He's certainly doesn't look like a rookie QB, does he? I really hope they beat the Titans. They should.

The Cardinals looked like a beaten team early, but really came on down the stretch. I've always liked Kurt Warner, and it's good to see him playing well. Matt Ryan looked like a rookie in this game. Not like he did during the regular season.

The Colts just played horrible, IMO. First of all, they never established a running game. As great as Peyton Manning is, he's predictable when Addai doesn't get the ball enough, and run well. And they're defense couldn't stop the run, or the Chargers on 3rd and long. A lackluster performance by the Colts. But you gotta give credit to the Chargers. Rivers played a smart game, and Sproles played a fabulous one. 328 all-purpose yards? WOW!! Well Done SD.

I thought the Vikings were in the game the whole time until the second half, when they just went flat. It's was anyone's game up until then, but the Eagles wanted to win it more down the stretch. As much as I am NOT a McNabb fan, he was strong at the end. And the Eagles defense poured it on. The Vikings needed a little more from Peterson in this game.

Well here's another end to the college season bcs controversy. The BCS asigned Utah the Crimson Tide hoping that 'Bama would straighten out the mess. Bama wins, no controversy. Problem was they lost and Utah's margin of victory was even higher than Florida's over the Tide. Playoffs anyone? how many times do we have to say it?? I have it figured out now: a 4 team playoff system, teams 1-4 seeded by the BCS after the bowl games. Get all the bowls done by christmas, instead of that 3 week break in December. Seed 1-4, first round at or around New Years, Championship game first weekend of January. Problem solved. Division 2 and 3 have playoffs so...

A college "Superbowl" would bring even more excitment to college football.

well, the Giants had their chances but didn't take advantage. Those two 4th and inches stops by the Eagles surely didn't help. Eagles played a good game, give them credit. Now...let's go Pittsburgh! :)

that was an abysmal game by the giants. they just got owned, really badly. They just got absolutely no rhythm going on offense. gosh, whoever thought a first round bye was a good thing, 3 out of the 4 teams who had one got eliminated.

the Giants played bad football, the Eagles played smart football, game over...

the Steelers look like the clear choice for Superbowl Champion...

and looks like a pair of good games for the Conference Championships regardless -

"battle of the birds" and "how to play smash mouth defence 101" :-)

Steelers played the best offense I've seen all year. Exploiting Parker on the ground big time. Can't wait for the hate match next Sunday.

first round bye looks better on paper than in real life. Seems the key is to just make the playoffs and get hot at the right time. As New England found out last year regular season means squat.

as much as i hate to admit it - it could definetly happen, Jim Johnson runs a defense thats both tenacious and intelligent - if they could stop Jacobs and Ward they can stop Parker...

however, first they have to beat Arizona ( who woulda thought! ) and it will take more than a couple blitzes to rattle a veteran like Warner...

this really has been a humdinger of a post season so far - all kinds of surprises!

as a Giants fan I am ecstatic that the Eagles lost. They wanted to do what the Giants did last year and today they found out just how tough that is. Good job and gut check by the Cards. I'm happy for Mr. Warner, a genuinely good guy.

Steelers are just so awesome. They're so physical its ridiculous. like half of the ravens team got injured. Its tough to win like that. And Joe flacco's fumbled finally, in the big game.

The eagles, card's game was also amazing. The cardinals really surprised me, especially kurt warner. In the first half, kurt had a perfect passer rating. and the eagles were s'posed to have the best defense in the NFC.

Bottom line, i dont think the steelers will lose. They're just too physical and their defense is so shut-down, even for kurt warner. And if his o-line can protect him, roethlisburger should have a good time with the card's secondary.

Well...


ta hee...to all the crying Eagles fans. I LOVE IT when they lose. IMHO, Donovan McNabb is a big choke! In every big game, he falters. He will NEVER lose that reputation, unless he gets a ring...which will be NEVER!

And as for the Ravens...well, we had a really good run this year. And nobody, and I mean NOBODY, picked them to play in the AFC Championship game. So, congrats to them.

And come to think of it...the same could be said for the Cardinals,(NFC Championship game) especially since they're in the SB. Way to go, Kurt!

Wow! What a strange NFL year, huh? ;-)
