YOU WANNA TALK ABOUT PLAYLOFFS?!
Yes, Jim Mora, I do.
So now we have completed 1 week of the postseason, and we have the 8 "best" teams remaining. If we really wanted the 8 best teams, then only AFC teams should be left. But the reason it is called the second season is so you can have a second season, NFC teams. Those 4 teams remaining from the Nauseating Football Conference can forget about the regular season and redeem themselves. Well, it's a perfect chance for the top 2 seeds in the NFC to prove themselves worthy opponents for the AFC, the better conference. So here are my picks for this week (picks based on spread).
NO -6 PHI
Try saying Jeff Garcia is a Super Bowl quarterback 5 times. Thought so, it just doesnt make any sense. Now he has played great, but the Saints will be emotional, play with pride, and have the whole country rooting for them. They have magic in them.
Saints 28 Eagles 20
BAL -6 IND
This seems like such a great matchup at first. The unstoppable force (Colts offense) vs. the immovable object (Ravens defense). However, people forget to realize this is the playoffs and as usual, Peyton will turn into his little brother, making this game the stoppable force vs. the immovable object. Ravens rattle Peyton, and have no problem.
Ravens 23 Colts 6
CHI -8.5 SEA
Due to a depleted secondary, the Seahawks will be lucky to find 4 DB's to play for them. However, lucky for them they play Rex Grossman, who cant even shred the Bears practice squad defense. Eventually this game will come down to the Bears defense and Devin Hester. I believe the Bears defense has enough in them for at least 1 more week, and scores at least 1 TD.
Bears 13 Seahawks 10
SD -5 NE
As usual we can expect Marty Schottenheimer to go into his playoff cocoon, but this time he has LaDainian Tomlinson. Last time I checked, LDT wins ballgames, and this week is no different. Expect a huge day, at least 150 yds and 2 TD's.
Chargers 34 Patriots 20
