    BOLTS!

    Looks like it's that time of the year, time to briefly care about American football again!

    I think it was mostly the noise in the stadium. It seemed to be mostly the tackle that was supposed to block Berry. Berry would fly off the line and your tackle was still down in his stance. I'm sure when he can hear the snap count he is fine.

    We are now halfway through the Wild Card Round and the Cardinals and the Chargers have already proven many wrong. Only donsig picked both to win this weekend.

    Yeah, and whats with Turner getting a whole 3 yards in the second half? You don't want Matt Ryan throwing the football 40 times a game right now. Thats kind of what I meant with "better situated to play with a lead".

    Well, just for fun... since I've never done this before...

    (BTW, I would've picked the Colts and Falcons to win, too, with Colts vs. Giants in the Superbowl)

    AFC Divisional Round
    Chargers @ Steelers (A low scoring running game if the Chargers can confuse Roesthlisburger like they did Manning, but Pittsburg's defense will come out on top)

    Ravens @ Titans (A playoff bye kills any momentum)

    NFC Divisional Round (both blowouts)
    Cardinals @ Giants
    Eagles @ Panthers

    AFC Championship Game
    Ravens @ Steelers (As much as I want the Ravens to win, I think Flacco gets tired after 19 games, but it will still be close.)

    NFC Championship Game
    Panthers @ Giants (I just don't think the Panthers will stack up to a good team. Don't they have one of the easiest seasonal strength of schedules of all playoff teams?)

    Superbowl
    Steelers vs Giants

    Now, I've heard/read somewhere that if the Chargers won, then the Ravens would play the Steelers. In that case, it would be the Titans over the Steelers, but losing to the Giants in the superbowl.

    The Ravens are 6 seeds, so no matter what they go to Tennessee if they win. The matchup I want to see the most out of the whole playoffs is Ravens @ Pittsburgh though, so I hope they meet somewhere down the line :D

    Ouch. You know the eagles have a top 5 offense and defense yardage wise? As well as us beating the Cardinals and Giants both playoff teams. I think we could lose, because we seem to not stop the run whenever I watch. But Delhomme wasn't very good this year, and I just can't see us getting blown out in any game with a passing attack like we have. Of course it has happened, and watch it'll happen today now that I am talking crap.

    Yea, they also beat Tampa, New Orleans twice, Atlanta, San Diego, Arizona, Denver off the top of my head. That's already not a bad resume.

    Looking it up on Yahoo, they also beat Chicago.

    Arizona was 9-7 :p

    Man that was pathetic. That was not a good game. The dolphins had a couple drives, but screwed it up every time.

    Wow. I knew the Ravens would be a challenge for the Dolphins. But that wasn't a challenge. That was an embarrassment. The Ravens defense just picked apart the Dolphins.

    That is pretty much how I expected that game would go. Baltimore's defense is the best in the NFL, better than Pittsburgh or Tennessee IMO.

    GIANTS OVER CARDINALS
    VIKINGS OVER PANTHERS

    One round down, with a surprise or two. Time to modify my predictions.

    Colts @ Chargers Correct
    Ravens @ Dolphins Oh so wrong

    NFC Wild Card Round
    Falcons @ Cardinals Incorrect
    Eagles @ Vikings Correct

    AFC Divisional Round
    Chargers @ Steelers
    Ravens @ Titans

    NFC Divisional Round
    Cardinals @ Panthers
    Eagles @ Giants

    AFC Championship
    Ravens @ Steelers

    NFC Championship
    Panthers @ Giants

    Super Bowl XLIII
    Ravens vs Giants

    Super Bowl MVP: Eli Manning

    The Ravens defense will take them to the Super Bowl, but I don't think their offense will be able to win it.
