    Rd 1, WC weekend:

    Seattle beats Dallas at home. This is a close game.

    Philly beats NYG at home. This is not a close game.

    NE beats NYJ at home. This is a close game.

    KC beats Indy away. KC gets the lead early and holds on in a second half shoot-out.

    I knew that Indy was going to stop LJ. I didn't post it here, but I told all of my football RL friends that it was going to happen. The Colts D has been insulted all year long, and now LJ struts in expecting to have a career day. That's motivation if I've ever seen it. And their main problem has been a lack of intensity. Like June's missed tackle on Jones-Drew; he had him by the shoulders, and gave him a gentle tug instead of ripping him down angrily.

    We love you, too. :crazyeye:

    Speaking of Dallas QBs, anyone want Bledsoe? You can start him for several games, and then bench him for a late round or undrafted younger QB.

    I'm sure the Raiders could take Bledsoe...they like big-armed QB's past thier prime :rolleyes:

    3-1, only loss being one where I went against my instinct. Next week looks more difficult.

    3-1, because I went with KC as team of destiny instead of picking favorite Indy. Offhand, anyone know long has it been since NO wildcard team won on WC weekend?

    2000? At least, that was the last time home teams went 4-0.

    4-0. Agree about next week. Flipping a coin may the be most accurate way to go...

    Divisional round picks
    Indianapolis at Baltimore - Just a gut feeling really...
    Philadelphia at New Orleans - Garcia can only take them so far... Brees will pick on whomever the Eagles play in place of Sheldon Brown at CB.
    Seattle at Chicago - Grossman or Hasselbeck? I'll take Hasselbeck any day. Especially since the Bears defense seems to be running out of steam (or healthy bodies).
    New England at San Diego - Brady's probably the best postseasen QB ever, but Tomlinson seems to be on a mission. Minus Harrison in the Pats' secondary, look for Tomlinson to get about 150 yards and 3 scores. That will take the pressure off of Philip Rivers...

    Darkness, didn't L.Sheppard go out with a dislocated elbow? That really hurts too. I haven't decided yet whom I'll pick... :mischief:
