    I'd have the Colts going all the way for a Manning vs Manning bowl if they didn't have to face the Chargers in the Wild Card round. Colts might be the better team, but the Chargers have a lot of momentum on their side. That plus the Chargers are Colts' kryptonite. I going out on a limb a bit picking the Dolphins, but I think if they can get past the Ravens they'll make it through to the end.

    Colts over Chargers
    Ravens over Dolphins (the Dolphins have grown on me as a sympathetic favorite, due to the resurrection of Pennington, the LOL at Jason Taylor and Zach Thomas abandoning them to play for "contenders" who didn't make the playoffs, and their eliminating Brett Favre AND Bill Bellichek in one fell swoop on the last week of the season. I like the Dolphins. Thus, they are DOOMED. Sorry, Fins fans, but at least this year's already been better than you dared hope.)

    Cardinals over Falcons (just so somebody picks them)
    Vikings over Eagles (I like the Eagles for bouncing Dallas almost as much as I like the Dolphins. Plus, the world isn't made to handle TWO Philly championships in one calendar year. Let's Go Flyers.)

    Colts over Titans (seriously. Don't let the wild card fool you. Beware the frickin' Colts this postseason. 9 game winning streak. Manning is healthy and Starvin' Marvin thinks he's 27 years old again).
    Ravens over Steelers

    Panthers over Vikings
    Giants over Cardinals (because they're the Cardinals)

    Colts over Ravens
    Giants over Panthers

    Super Bowl 43: 50 years after the greatest game ever played, history repeats itself; Colts 23, Giants 17, in the first Super Bowl to go to Overtime.

    Peyton Manning MVP, because QB of the Winning Team is always a safe super bowl mvp bet and a default pick.

    Totally unlikely. I'd probably win a lot of money with this eagles win of the the Penn Superbowl as a matter of fact:) SI predicted it, so it has to happen!

    If SI predicted it, then I would be very afraid :lol:

    Poor Titans don't get no respect. Best defense and arguably the best coach in the league. They whacked the Colts AND the Steelers this season, the latter without Haynesworth.

    I respect the Titans plenty. I just think there's a difference between beating the Colts with a healthy Peyton Manning and beating the Colts with an injured (recovering) Peyton Manning.

    Mauer, as division champs the Chargers are seeded higher than the Ravens. So in your AFC Divisional Round the Ravens would face the Titans, while the Chargers would face the Steelers.

    rhawn, same with your AFC Divisional Round. The Colts would face the Titans while the Dolphins would face the Steelers.

    Just thought you guys might like to know, since that could change your predictions for the playoffs.

    Why would anyone pick the Cardinals to win against the Falcons? Curious there.

    As for predictions, man, there's 5 legit teams in the NFC, and its any given sunday there. For the AFC, I'm picking the Ravens
