Looks like we have pretty similar predictions, Brad.

I'll be shocked if the Chargers make the Superbowl. I still picked them to win the division, but I think they've declined from last year. Plus I think all three other teams are getting better in the West. The Chiefs will break out the next couple years. They made some awesome draft picks. Eric Berry (STUD), Dexter Mccluster, and Javier Arenas... lotta young playmakers. Plus adding Thomas Jones w/out the pressure/fatigue of so many carries will be big. The Raiders have had a lot of talent for years, and Jason Campbell is underrated. I expect them to be rejuvenated and play with new hope.

I don't see the Bengals being as good as last year. I watched Benson suck for too many years in Chicago to believe he won't come back to reality a little this year. I think their defense overachieved last year. And I smell trouble with the Owens/Ocho tandem. They both care about their offseason careers more than they care about football. I won't be shocked if halfway thru the year Carson is ready to strangle both of them. I think the Steelers are sitting back laughing that everyone is all over the Bengals/Ravens, but not them. Lotta pride in that Steelers locker room, I think they'll play hard and Ben will come back with something to prove in week 5.

I don't think the Panthers will be very good regardless of who plays QB. Besides no one will care because the real story will be in Denver when McDaniels goes to Tebow halfway thru the season and Timmy starts lighting it up (I've 180'ed my feelings on Tebow; don't tell Reece).

Wanna put some money on the Lions finishing ahead of the Bears? lol.

I go back and forth with Pittsburg and Cincy.. Wouldn't be too shocked if both+Ravens go in any order..
This is the year that Texans make the Playoffs and same with the 49ers. Bout fu<kin' time!
Pat's fall apart if Moss don't get his extention.
NFC East will be the big shocker.Dallas might finish last behind Philly and Washington finishes ahead of Philly. This is my longest shot of a prediction..
Colt's > Vikings or Packers if Farve don't make it thru the season.

It's finally here. Holy sh!t I'm excited for football!!!!

I like the Vikings to upset the 5 point favorite Saints tonight. The Vikings probably haven't thought about anything other than beating the Saints for the last 9 months or so.

0-1 baby it's gonna be a good year!!!


I actually thought the game went mostly how I thought it would. The Vikings D did a great job of slowing down the Saints offensive attack. If you told me they were going to hold them to 14 points, I would've been REALLY convinced that the Vikes would win. The Vikings offense just looked miserable though. Saints DBs covered Minnesotas receivers like white on rice all night long, and Adrian Pedestrian looked mediocre.

Some kneejerk reactions after the first two weeks....

I think the Vikings will miss the playoffs. The magic of last season seems like a distant memory.

I haven't given up on the Cowboys, but they will have to battle all year. The Skins and Giants are legit teams, and the Eagles aren't slouches either.

I think the Chiefs are for real as well. I think they'll run away with the unofficial title for NFL's most improved team this year. They made so many brilliant moves both drafting and signing. I think they'll finish above .500 and compete for the division.

Clausen was named the starter for week 3, we'll see how he does, Brad. I predict epic failure.

Couple of upsideas. 49ers looked a lot better than week 1.
Bush is out for 6 weeks
Kolb is back in the starting role---- to eventually give it up to Vick.. He should survive this week until they play a better team. Vick looks as good (thus far) as he ever has.. He looks focused and seems to have matured a lot..

I'm on the fence with the Clausen Starter call..

The Panthers are just a bad team, let's be serious. Even after two weeks, there is no reason to continue to start Matt Moore. His stats aren't THAT bad but then again he's not the future QB of that team. They might win 5 to 6 games this year. I think Clausen could have a decent finish for the year.

I really like Vick a lot right now. i know why Philly is letting Kolb get the starting job but at the same time, how can you say that Vick didn't just earn it? Philly is a better team with Vick back there imo. But it'd be tough to justify letting McNabb go like that in favor for Kolb only to have Vick step in and take it. I give Kolb 2 games and if he doesn't perform and Vick continues to electrify that offense when he gets in, then I think number 7 will be taking the snaps for the rest of the year.

The Eagles couldn't have handled their QB situation worse IMO. I think a year or two down the line we'll be laughing at how bad they f@#$ed up.

They let McNabb go, a possible future hall of famer who is still performing at his prime level, to make room for an unproven guy who they've been primping for a couple years, because they believe in him that much and want to transition to a more pure pocket passer. Okay, fine. If they really believe in him that much, I can sort of understand. When the Packers ditched Favre for Aaron Rodgers, I thought they were doing the right thing, because Favre was getting old, and I felt Rodgers was going to be awesome. But then, after one mildly disappointing half of football, they give Kolb's job away while he's benched due to injury??

It's asinine. They are alienating the guy who was supposed to be the future of the organization, without giving him a reasonable chance to prove himself. And for what? Vick has looked great so far, but if you think he's the answer, I think you're nuts. Like he became a better passer during his couple years AWAY from pro football? I think he's off to a nice start. I also think he'll revert to being about a 55% passer like he always was.

Personally I don't think Kolb has looked that great in the limited times we've seen him. But wtf are the Eagles doing? They inexplicably went from what seemed like a very long-term plan with Kolb instead of McNabb, to suddenly the complete opposite, being charmed by a couple nice performances by Vick. They've gone from McNabb to Vick, which to me is inarguably a downgrade, and in the process, may have ruined the organizations relationship with Kolb.

Pitt, for the record, I hate the Eagles and always did since I moved to this god forsaken state (South Jersey). I'm a Steeler fan from birth and for ever. That won't change. I have to say I agree with your assessment of what the Eagle franchise has done in the past. They are cutting their own throats and so be it. Mcnabb is doing well in Washington and more power to him so I say. I can't wait for the 2 games they meet against each other. Eagles/Redskins. That will be fun to watch lol.

Paul, those games will be crazy. I'm sure Mcnabb is foaming at the mouth thinking about sticking it to the Eagles. That city never gave him due credit, and never really appreciated him IMO. He won't admit it though, he'll play it cool, and be a class act like he's always been.

Superbowl: Broncos vs. Eagles (Only if Vick Starts though)

Tebow rushes for 120, passes for 300. Vick drops a 200-200 VYNC performance, and the game goes down to the wire. Not sure who wins.

I guarntee NO ONE made that prediction preseason. I like it and could see it happening. Stranger things have happened. Only one problem.. Denver won't get past Houston in the playoffs.. Biased and optimistic as it may be, Houston is my best hope for that level of sucess ofm my top 2 favorite teams as of now. Although The way the 49ers played the Saints (which is no surprise- as they usuall play each other hard no matter how good each team may be) I haven't ruled out hem for at least the playoffs- due to such a week division and it only being week 3.

Reece, I WOULD say that you don't get credit for those predictions since you didn't make them before the season kicked off, but they're still pretty ballsy so I'll let it slide.

I don't hate the Eagles pick at all. They've been stacked for years and they still are. They might have the fastest overall team speed in the NFL. They just fly at every position. And their defense is always getting to QBs and always creating turnovers. Not a bad formula!

The Broncos pick I do hate. If they make the superbowl, you should give me supreme amounts of sh!t about it, because I'm telling you now that the Broncos pick is trash. I think they might finish 3rd in their division actually behind SD and KC.

Monday Night Football is going to be INSANE this week. Two undefeated teams, division rivalry, two young QBs with rocket-arms playing great football going in... GO BEARS!!! LETS DO WORK!!!

The bottom line is... what is the fun of predicting things like this if you don't bet on some longshots and go out on a limb?

Someone could just as well copy and paste some obscure writers' picks, and to me that is just worthless and weak. And pretty much the same as that would be to just pick the obvious favorites and choose down from there.

Seriously guys? You really think those are my honest predictions? Even if you bought the teams I chose, I figured having Tebow rush for 120 and pass for 300 along with Vick rushing and passing for 200 would make my sarcasm obvious. For one, Tebow shouldn't (and won't) start this year, barring injury to Orton. Kyle has done a great job since coming over from the Bears. He's efficient, fairly accurate, makes smart decisions, and spreads the ball around. Starting Tebow would only hurt the Broncos chances at making a playoff run. Regardless, we all know the Broncos will inevitably choke away any chance they have at even making the playoffs; that is, unless Tebow gives the motivational speech of a lifetime propelling the Broncos to a Superbowl run, a la UF 2008 (C'mon Tim!). While I do think the division is wide open, Denver just never seems to finish a season. Maybe McDaniels can change that trend though.

As for the Eagles, I think they can make some noise, especially if Vick continues to be successful throwing from the pocket. Even after two years away from the game, he's arguably the most dynamic player in the NFL. You can't teach freak athleticism and arm strength. That being said, they're an inexperienced team with a first time starter at RB, young wideouts, and a young defense with no identity. So, while I don't think they'll win the superbowl, they can definitely win the NFC East.

Anyway, here are my true predictions...

Before the season:
AFC East: Jets
AFC North: Ravens
AFC South: Colts
AFC West: Chargers
WC: Titans

NFC East: Redskins
NFC North: Packers
NFC South: Saints
NFC West: 49ers
WC: Vikings or Cowboys

2 weeks in:
AFC East: Jets
AFC North: Steelers
AFC South: Colts
AFC West: Broncos
WC: Texans

NFC East: Redskins
NFC North: Packers
NFC South: Saints
NFC West: 49ers
WC: Eagles

And for the record, I wouldn't have picked the Vikes before the season; not because I predicted they'd be 0-2 right now, but because I hate Favre.

What's surprised me the most is how the Bears have looked under Mike Martz. I figured he would give the offense a little boost, but they look like a totally different team. That being said, they're gonna have to run the ball at some point, and Forte is averaging under three yards a carry this year. Their division is too tough to be one-dimensional.

Since we're doing updated predictions...

- Bears make the playoffs over the Vikings. In week 1 we get a sloppy win on a last second call which robbed Megatron of a game winning TD, then in week 3, Hester returns a punt for a TD and the Packers shoot themselves in the foot with 15+ penalties. Feels an awful lot like 2006 lol.

- The NFC East has me completely confused. I feel like any of the four teams could win the division.

- The Chiefs are for real. I "officially" picked them to finish 2nd in the division, and now I'm wishing I had had the stones to trust my instincts. They're breaking out even more emphatically than I expected. San Diego watches the playoffs from home this year.

This year has been crazy. No one is dominant. The Vikes looked a lot better last night, but Favre continues to kill them with turnovers. I'm thinking Randy realizes what he had in Tom Brady by the end of the season...

HELL YEA Ehren! That's what i'm talking about lol. They are doing great at the moment. Even the NY Jets are doing good. I just HOPE the Giants do not choke. If i'm not mistaken, I think the Giants last year started off to a 5-0 but ended up choking. Many teams are just not like they used to be and all the 'lower end' teams are getting up there in the stats.
I mean the chargers at 2-5? Vikings at 2-4? Many teams have too many loses so early into the season. Just as Christmas Elvis said, no one is dominant.

Too bad Romo fractured is left clavicle. Really doubt the cowboys are going anywhere this season. Same for the Vikes and Favre's fractured foot.

I'm really liking the Packers. I want them to go far this season. I'm really impressed with Rodgers and I think they can definitely make it far.

Week 10 leaves a chitload of questions!!!

Not gonna cover em all here but I will ask a couple..

-Are the Eagles that f'ing good?
What can you say about Vick, besides, "WOW!"

Is Dallas all the sudden wakened by the new head coach, or is Smith's absence that critical?

Is Tampa really a true force?

Is Vick the League's MVP front runner (even though he has missed some playtime? Do the Eagles have to go far in the playoff's for that to happen?

Steelers- overrated? or Pat's that good?
I'll stop there but I have plenty of other questions ..

I consider myself to be pretty "up-to-date" on internet chit (viral vid's, ect.)

But about a week (maybe two) ago I found out or got the "Two Manning's, One Cup" Team name of Reece's. I have to say that I am glad to not have watched the actual video( i simply watched Joe Rogan's reaction to watching it to get the idea). But that team name is brilliant for other more football reason's too. I know this is random, but I was already typing and thought about this and figured, better late than never! Nice one Reece!

I can't take credit for the name, Mark. I'm sure it was used by 1000s (even hundreds of thousands) before me, but I did find it clever.

As for the Eagles, I think they're legit. They play tenacious defense and the amount of offensive weapons at Andy Reid's disposal is almost unfair. First of all, how great does the Vick contract extension look now? This is a guy playing at a 100 million dollar level, yet they're paying around 8 million dollars to reap the benefits of his dominance for the next two years. The emergence of "Shady" (aka LeSean McCoy) has also been huge for the Eagles. I have to "gas myself up" to some extent on this one, because I drafted him in every fantasy leagues I'm in and was confident he would be pick up where Brian Westbrook left off (thankfully he doesn't have a vagina like Westbrook). He is as versatile as they come, capable of running between the tackles as well as catching passes out of the backfield. Now, throw in Desean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, and Brent Celek. How is a defense supposed to stop everyone if the offense is clicking? Add in the addition of Jerome Harrison (hopefully that son of a bitch doesn't nab too many goal line carries from McCoy), and they possibly the most complete offense in the league.

That's not to say there won't be bumps in the road. For one, I cringe every time Vick gets hit. He appears to wince every time he picks himself up off the dirt. While I hope he stays healthy, his style of play is VERY conducive to injuries, especially considering the dude checks in at 6 foot tall, 215 pounds (in pads, soaking wet). It's just hard for someone his size to take punishment from 300 pound defensive linemen, 260 pound linebackers, and 220 pound safeties. I hope, both for the Eagles' and my fantasy team's sake, that he stays healthy, though, and if he does, I don't see a more deserving candidate for MVP.

Phil Rivers is putting up monster numbers, but the Chargers have a losing record. Same can be said for Kyle Orton. Then you have the normal names--Manning, Brady, and Brees--but outside of Peyton, none of them have asserted themselves MVP caliber players this year. Both Brees and Brady lost to the Browns for Christ's sake. Yeah, yeah, yeah, the Browns are back... Whatever, Colt McCoy is their starting quarterback and their only other win came against the 2-7 Bengals.

That being said, both the Patriots and the Steelers are overrated. The Steelers defense looked unbelievable the first five games of the year, but the past few weeks they have been quite vulnerable. Contrarily, the Patriots defense looked great last week, but the Steelers offense has been out of sync and losing Hines Ward doesn't help. While it seems like a stretch to call the Pats overrated, they just haven't been impressive, even while winning, this season. Regardless, the Pats are the Pats, so they will be around come playoff time; I just don't expect them to hang around very long. It's hard to make a championship run with BenJarvis Green-Ellis as your starting runningback. If they go back to the basics like they tried to do last week, getting Welker and Branch involved, I think they have a lot better chance to finish the season strongly.

Lastly, I think Tampa is legit. Freeman looks WAY too poised for this to be his second season. He has great pocket presence, a cannon, and a talented group of young receivers to air it out to. While their defense has been suspect at times, their offense has been able to bail them out thus far. It will be interesting to see how they look coming down the stretch.

Is it zany that I called the Pats overrated and the Bucs legit? I can't say it isn't, but I'm more-so talking about their standing in respect to how they were projected to look this year and the hype they've received thus far. Do I think the Bucs COULD beat the Pats? Of course, but whether the would actually pull it off is a different story.

That's my ¢2...

The Eagles are a really strong team. They fly (no pun intended) at pretty much every position on both sides of the ball. However, the Giants just showed us, albeit in a losing effort, that they CAN be slowed down.

My NFC Power rankings would be:
1. Giants
2. Packers
3. Eagles
4. Falcons
5. Who cares it's a four team conference IMO.

Is Tampa legit? Depends on how you define legit. At this point in the season I'd define it as a team that will make the playoffs, and potentially do damage once there. I don't think Tampa can. They're finding ways to win games, and Freeman looks awesome (thank god I grabbed him in the ecoustics league or I'd be f@#$ed), but their record is way better than the numbers that have gotten them there. Their schedule has 9-7 written all over it. @Baltimore, @New Orleans, vs. Atlanta, vs. Detroit which is no gimme. They'll finish 10-6 if they're LUCKY.

I agree that the Pats are a tad overrated. Their defense is bad, and their run game isn't great either. Granted they find a way to make plays on defense, and they certainly put up points, but I don't trust them. I like the Steelers and the Jets best in the AFC. Run the ball, stop the run.

Colt McCoy is playing great for a rookie on a bad team, Reece. So far his worst opponent has been the Jags, other than that he's played @NO, @PIT, vs NE, and vs NYJ... give the kid some credit, that is as tough a 5 game start to a quarterbacks career possible, and he's done quite well considering.

My gut is still telling me Giants, Giants, Giants. I don't think there is a more complete team in the NFL. They need Nicks to get healthy. But their defense is well rounded, with maybe the best pass rush in the game, and on offense they can do it all.

Ehren, while I agree Colt has played surprisingly well, I'm pretty sure most of his success has emanated from Peyton Hillis's beastliness. I know you've seen his numbers, but have you seen the Browns play? They're offense is seriously run, run, check-down, run, run, check-down, check-down, run, run, run, check-down, run, run, run, run, run (Just an approximation). Colt rarely has to make throws beyond 10 yards even if he's given the option (which is isn't most of the time). He plays exactly how he played at Texas, dinking and dunking down the field, except he actually has a running back in this offense. Regardless, considering he was nearly cut during the preseason, the organization couldn't ask much more from the guy.

Paul, I watched SNF with my Dad, and pregame we made our picks. He was big on the Ravens, and I told him the Curtain has better playmakers on its defense, and that they'd get a big turnover to win it in the fourth quarter.

He wanted to cry.

The Ravens should have won but they flat out gave it away.


And guess which QB I have on my fantasy team? Peyton (I flucking love throwing interceptions) Manning. The man will throw for 350+ yards and get at least 2 in the end zone every game yet because of the picks he nets me 15-20 points?


I want to cry.

Peyton is a victim of a terrible running game. You can tell how frustrated he is out there. He'll read the defense like a book, checking to a run play that is wide open, only to have Javarris James, Mike Hart, or Donald Brown (what an absolute waste of a 1st round pick) mosey into the hole and get drilled. Now he's trying to put the game on his back by forcing throws down field, feeling like he has to make the big play, but there's nothing there because the defense can afford to sit on deep routes and wait for the Colts to take a shot. The Colts are in trouble until they get a RB who's worth a sh1t.

i'm not a fan of them, but i don't dislike them. I understand they lost to Patriots, even by that much. But the fact that they couldn't score a damn TD with the Dolphins is just horrible. It's about time their luck ran out.

Their next game is at the Steelers, which IMO will be a victory for the Steelers. Then they are off to the Bears, which IMO will lose against the Bears.

And finally, it will be Bills vs Jets. This is where i want the underdog to win so I will be rooting for Bills


Eagles at Giants - can't wait for Giants to regain division leadership!

Reece -- it has a lot to do with the Colt's run blocking. They seem confused and sluggish every time they are in run mode. In pass mode, they are fine, because that's all they are used to. But with a few tweaks to the scheme, Addai coming back soon, and Jarvarris James emerging as a possible star, the Colts offense will be improved come playoff time.

And the defense is tough against the pass but have been burned all year by the run, giving up a lot of yards, first downs, and points. 31 to the Pats, 36 to the Chargers, 38 to Dallas and 28 to the Titans... in a row. The D keeps this up, and they are one and done. But this year, they match up very well against their two biggest (and most probable) opponents, the "pass first and run later" Chargers and Patriots. The team they better hope to avoid is the Steelers, who can run and pass well when needed, and have a very tough and fast defense. Nobody has been able to run on them all year, which is why their passing defense stats are so inflated. Pittsburgh would crush the Colts right now.

We can't be thinking of the same guy. He looks awful to me.

If the Colts make the playoffs, I think they get SMASHED by virtually any opponent. The Pats'll own them. The Steelers or Ravens would crush them too. I even think the Chargers would beat them.

The colts are a bad team this year. They need to overhaul their offensive line. I think they've been so focused for years on pass protecting Peyton, that their run blocking has been practically ignored. Addai and Hart look at least OKAY to me, but the system is f#@$ed. Peyton stilll manages to single-handedly win them some games, but if they had even a respectable run game, their offense would really be a force. I think they're actually much stronger at receiver right now than they were back in the Marvin Harrison days, which is a scary thought.

It's hard to see it right now when they beat themselves so often. Coach Kaughlin (sp) needs to go IMO.

If they can find a way to clean up the sloppy play I still say they're one of the best, most complete teams in the NFL.

I hope they make the playoffs and get matched up against the Eagles in the first round though. I'm calling it now, the Giants beat the Eagles in the playoffs if they get the chance.

Nobody will beat the Chargers if we can make it in to the playoffs.

By that time we should have a healthy and rested Gates, Floyd and Jackson. With the way Philip is playing right now (I would take him over anyone, including Mike) and our defense? Fuhget about it.

I don't know Brad, I can't decide how I feel about your Chargers. I picked them to make the superbowl last year and the year before, and obviously I was incorrect.

Without looking at the numbers, no one would guess that they're 2nd in total offense, and 1st in total defense. As impressive as that seems, you would think they were a 12-2 powerhouse cruising to a first round bye. But, no. They are 8-6, despite playing what has been IMO a really weak schedule. They've lost to the Seahawks, Rams, and Oakland twice. I understand the Rams and Raiders aren't gimmes anymore, but the Charges have been boom or bust every week. They should easily have 10 or more wins.

If I were a betting man (and I am ), there would be no way I could trust them enough to pick them to beat a team like the Patriots in the playoffs.

The Pats defense isn't great, but they're my AFC favorites with Tom playing OUT OF HIS MIND. He's this years MVP right now IMO.

I dont agree with your AFC picks. The Steelers wouldnt play the Jets in the second round because they are the 6th seed. If the Jets where to win they would play the Pats. The Steelers would play either the colts,ravens or cheifs in the second round depending on who wins. But... I do agree with your NFC picks tho.

#6 seed(if they win) will always play the #1 seed.
So,if the jets were to win they would play the pats in the second round. Then the Steelers would play the winner of the chiefs/ravens. But...if the Colts win since they were the 3rd seed they would play the Steelers an the pats would play the winner of the chiefs/ravens. It all goes by seeding. #1 seed will always play the lowest seeded team left. It does get alittle confusing sometimes.

I'm curious, what do you guys think of the NFL's playoff format? All over ESPN the "experts" are talking about what a travesty it is that Seattle made the playoffs at 7-9. On Mike & Mike this morning, they pointed out that maybe more importantly, the seeding is what needs to be reconsidered.

Because of the divisional format:

The Jets play @ Indy (which is huge since Peyton and company have always played way better at home), despite having finished a game better than the Colts.

The Ravens play @ Kansas City (a notoriously tough field to travel to, where KC is 7-1 this year), despite finishing two games better.

The Packers play @ Philly, who finished with a record equal to Green Bay's, but lost to the Packers earlier in the year, giving the Pack ownership of the tiebreaker. Again very significant, as the Packers were a 7-1 powerhouse at Lambo field this year.

And of course, craziest of all, the 7-9 Seahawks get home field advantage against the 11-5 Saints, a whopping FOUR GAMES their superior.

I'm going to wait a couple more days to make my official predictions, but I think home field will play a HUGE role in the first round this year. Guaranteeing division winners a playoff berth makes sense to me for a few reasons, but the seeding is unfair IMO.

Another interesting storyline going into the playoffs, is that this will be the first year with the new overtime rules. I, like many others as Greeny and Golic pointed out, had completely forgotten about this. For the first time ever, if any of these playoff games go to overtime, and on the first possession the team makes a field goal, guess what, THE GAME ISN'T OVER!!!!

Seattle threw me for a loop pool wise but I nailed all my other picks this weekend.

David Akers must be seeking means of suicide after his 2 missed FGs that would've ultimately won the game for the Eagles. (He should be kicking himself).

First quarter I was actually rooting against my pick in the Raven/Chief game. I really wanted to see David beat Goliath's Defense. (mainly so the Steelers would be facing the Chiefs next week).

The Jets over the Colts? Didn't surprise me a bit. Peyton had a sour second half to his season and I expected it to roll into the playoffs.

Now as a Steeler fan I have to rustle all my confidence I can in their offense to match up against the infamous Raven's D.

Winning a 7th SB would just be surreal to any/all fellow fans.

Seattle cashed in all the chips they had on Saturday. The road ends this weekend for them IMO.

In today's league you can't crown any team so lopsidedly. The Pat's are damn good but you can't be afraid of them, or else they've already won. Sack his azz a few times (hard) and remind him he's human and he can fold like any of them. (Time for NE fans to interject their assumed dominance).

Oh and Sean, I'm crossing my fingers too.

Yes I was subtly wishing for the Jets to win also but after watching what they can do on the road it scares me a bit also. Although the Pats weren't anywhere near up to par and Brady's receivers had a touch of the nerves it appeared. Lot's of experience on the team so no excuses. Pittsburgh better leave what they brought against the Ravens in the first half at the door. That chit won't fly in the AFC championship game.

All in all as long as an AFC team wins the SB I'm good. I have nothing bad to say about the Jets and how they got where they are this year.

Just to throw it out there, let's look back on all the disappointments and shocker losses in the playoffs.


The Saints beaten by Seattle? Defending SB champs? Wow.
The Patriots. The most anticipated SB winner of this year beaten by the Jets. Holy crap!
Falcons Defeated by a sixth seeded Green Bay? Must be a joke, but it isn't.

Now we have classic and historic match-ups this weekend with Pitt against the Jets and Greenbay against Da Bears. I'm all tingly inside lol.


It truly IS anyone's game lol.


Mind you regardless of who wins I'm a "football" fan first. I love watching the game regardless.



Nah scratch that. If my team losses I'm with the rest of them and spend the next two weeks licking my wounds, hating the world lol.

Bears/Packers should be a great game, but I think the Bears can pull it off. Jay Cutler is as talented as any QB in the NFL, and I think he's taken some big steps in maturing this season. His decision making has been greatly improved for the most part. Throw in a big return or two from Hester, and I like our chances. In week 17 when the Packers were fighting for their playoff lives, and the Bears had little to play for, we still managed to make them look bad (even though they won the game). Their offense looked miserable against our D, and they barely managed a single touchdown.


The Steelers pick I'm pretty confident in. Not that the Jets can't win, they're a very good team, but I'm not on the fence at all on this one. The Steelers D is better than the Jets IMO. The Jets won't be able to run on the steelers much, so Sanchez will have to pass, and Woodley/Harrison will be all over him. The Jets need a great game from Sanchez, if they get one then they're in business cause their receiving corps is really good. But I'll take Big Ben over Sanchez any day, and I'll take the Steelers' D to make enough big plays to win it.

Yes the GB/bear game will IMO be the game of the day. Such an old school match up with today's talent would be a crime to miss. Sometimes I use geography to give a team an edge in the playoffs due to weather. Not this time since both are cold climate teams. It wouldn't matter if it was snowing or raining out, 60 degrees or 10, both are playing in their element outdoors in soldier field. GB is on a Cinderella ride and I'm hoping (football pool financially wise) they continue it for just one more week.

Pittsburgh? Ben is a bull of a QB with the gift of patience in the pocket and the ability to shake off the rush with enough time to find his playmakers in veteran Ward and young gun Wallace. Paired up with a fantastic D it gives them the edge all the analysts are predicting.

This is where they have to prove that. I say it in all playoff games and it's never more so true then now. Turnovers and special team plays decide the game. Pitt has a bad habit of allowing kickoff returns for massive yardage/points that it could mean the game today. If Troy can step it up and shake Sanchez up it will certainly make a huge difference as well.

In the end if both teams play mistake free football and both do what they are built for I give the game to Pitt. But, on any given Sunday........................................

Bears game was extremely painful to watch. Credit to Caleb Hanie for at least making it interesting in the fourth quarter.

I am VERY anxious to find out more about Jay Cutler's injury. The city of Chicago is pretty upset with him right now, sure didn't look like he made much of an effort to get back into the biggest game of his life.

Wow....whta way to fck up Jets. If they did half of what they did in the second half during the first half, they would have most likely taken the win.
Anyways, everyone I know rooted for and picked them over jets.

I still say GB>Steelers in Superbowl.

Not that Ben and his team isn't better, I think they are. I just beleive GB will be the better team at the SB.

I hope.

Stave that has to be the most remixed song ever, I'm pretty sure there is a version for like every sports team. The original is a great track. Best remix I've heard is the "purp & yellow" Lakers mix with Snoop and The Game.

Skullz no disrespect to the Jets at all because that was a nail biter of a 2nd half. How does a team 24 points up ALMOST give it away? No points scored in the 2nd half by the Steelers and still win? Wow.

I know Jet fans are bitter and they had a very great story to get where they got. The Byrd influence was spectacular. God bless him. Like I said earlier I have NOTHING against the Jets so if they did win tonight I hoped they would be the ones to upset the Packers.

So we have Pitt against the Packers. Many are distraught and many are inflated, yet we all are psyched. At least you should be as a football fan. Two classic defenses against two great scrambling QBs?


Hold onto your butts lol.

Getting close guys! Anymore final predictions?
I think its going to be a high scoring game. Kind of like the game these guys played last year when the steelers won 37-36. There was a combined 900 yards of passing in that game. Should be pretty dam exciting!

I think the steelers defense comes up big when they have to... Steelers 31 Packers 28

Born and raised. I still believe. In my pool at work I need either a Steeler win or a total point score of 48 or less. That brings me $300.

Regardless, if the GB Packers pull it out and win it I'm fine with it. The Steelers still prove themselves as the team they are to get this far.

Congrats GB. The Steelers simply couldn't overcome their 3 turnovers. Mistake free football wins these games. I myself was wondering if the last 2 minutes of this game were going to reflect what Ben is capable of but, that's the game. No hard feelings and celebrate as you wish GB, you earned it the hard way like Pitt did as the 6th seed several years ago. My son is crushed though. Without loss you cannot appreciate victory.

Great game. Competitive all the way even though it felt like the Packers might pull away at one point. Like Paul said, the Steelers made a couple crucial mistakes turning the ball over, and it cost them for sure.

Packers should be a force for years to come in the NFL, as some of us have seen coming (scroll to first post of this thread ).

All non-football aspects of this super bowl sucked IMO. I can't think of any commercials that really stood out other than the "reply all" commercial which made me laugh. Christina messed up the lyrics to the National Anthem, and the halftime show was unfathomably bad. Fuggie looked gross and sounded even worse, as usual.

Reply all commercial

Yeah the commercials in the beginning were pretty good, but pretty much after halftime they all were stupid.

Back Eyed Peas suck too. How is fergie a singer?

Also Career Builder commercial was OK. But the Reply All one was definitely one of the better ones.

Truthfully I hadn't noticed the botched anthem lyrics until today. I didn't care for her rendition of it from the start so I suppose I didn't pay attention. Halftime show was indeed pathetic. Slash should've stayed home. Coupled with the seating drama before the game I wouldn't give the complex much more than 7/10 stars for the event.

I was happy with the game. I couldn't believe how well Green Bay played. I'm not really a fan of either team but I was pulling for Green Bay. If they hadn't of messed up those few times they could have had even more points on the board. Like with the pass the one guy missed which could have been a touchdown. Gotta say that both defenses were spot on. It just seemed like the Steelers had the ball more often, but when the Packers had it, they did something with it. As for the half time, I thought they could have chosen someone better. The black eyed peas are ok, but they've only had one new, recent song out. Most of all they sang was out dated. The highlight I thought was Usher.
