Using them to wager money is advisable as handing Tony Romo your baby. Poor Romo.

Thank you for picking all the same teams as I did for the pick'em/confidence pools, now I'm sure to get the Costanza.

whats with this guy being so against belicheck (First off, Bill Belichick is a punk. ) Bill Belicheck is the best coach in the NFL of this decade, and this so called author is writing about Mangini and him. First off, Mangini is a bum who tried to bring other Pats coaches to New York. Secondly, when Mangini was asked who he would like to thank for his career, he named about 15 coaches, and 0 of them seemed to be Belicheck. I would like to say that although I am rooting for the Patriots, this game will come down to how well the Pats stop the run, which will be very hard for them. Unless the game comes down to the end of the game, and the Pats D can hold, I have the Bolts in a very close game.

Hey Archie, Does Eli want to be a Charger now??? I for one am glad to see the Giants getting their moneys worth! This time Mr Conservetive better not show his face at the Chargers game or he could be looking for a new home. Go Bolts!

If the Seahawks can manage to keep their heads out of their asses for 4 quarters on Sunday, they have a very good shot at winning in Chicago. But its been a rare sight to see the Seahawks heads out of their asses this season. Anyways...Go Seahawks!

I visited New Orleans this summer, fun town not too serious about anything. I like the Saints and what they have "done" for their wonderful city. That all ends tomorrow evening when my Eagles turn down the screws. I even bought a voodoo doll( not knowing at the time how much I would need it) so watch out NO, we're comin' to getcha. The hoser is a chump. Go Birds!

New England 3 Super Bowl Wins (2005, 2004, 2002) All other teams left in Playoffs 3 Super Bowl wins (Bal. 2001, Chi. 1986, and Baltimore Colts 1971). However with Schottenwhatever's extensive history of playoff excellence I am sure that he will find a way to overcome the Patriots. I poke fun but the reason that I love the Patriots is not because of their offense or defense neither of which has ever been spectacular. I love them because they win in spite of their deffencies. They work hard and do whatever it takes to win, unlike a lot of players and teams in a lot of sports.

Reading through the posts on this thread, I'm reminded of why I love the playoffs so much- After all, it's the time that everyone is at their most logical and clear-headed with their predictions, without letting personal feelings cloud their judgement.... You can see this by the record number of 'Go (insert team here)' in the signoff, or the sudden emergence of the team owner (MY Eagles) taking time out of his busy day to post on a sports board...

I know the conditions in Chicago will be conducive to the run game and not the passing game, but for the Hawks to win I believe Hasselback has to be the star. I'd like to see like a 25 for 35, plus-300 yard game with no INT's for us to win it. I don't think we can count on Alexander to give us a big game, and I'm not sure how much our receivers will be able to do on their own without Matt putting them in the right situations. I love Matt, he's our one constant, our most gritty competitor, and he has to carry the O tomorrow. Go Hawks!

I love what he had to say about Belickick....although he is a great coach and I never count them out - despite their deficiencies. 'Ole Marty isn't known for his playoff winning record - because he doesn't have one - but I think this time he may just decide to call an aggressive game and take the Pats down. Let's see then if Belichick is gracious in defeat.

Frazer: Judith Light circa One Life to Live or Who's the Boss? or Ugly Betty? She was an exceptionally fetching bored housewife-slash-secret hooker -- way too good for Doctor Larry.

Oh well. I guess one bum prediction is as good as all, for the unthinking. On the Chargers-Pats game, the Pats will slow the run and force the young Chargers QB to beat them, he will make critical mistakes and fall well short. The Pats should have a number of picks in the upcoming game. Tomlison will get his yards, but most will be meaningless and have no impact upon the final result. It is laughable how some can predict that a coach who has a bad playoff results history and always plays to the same deficient scheme, can out coach one the masters of gameday strategy. Simply frickin amazing. Go figure.

Either one is just fine by me.

Hoser, you got them all right except the NO/Philly game. I'm afraid the time has come that the Saints notice what's on the side of their helmets and remember that they're the Saints. Once the Eagles get any sort of lead, look for NO to deflate faster than Katie Couric's ratings. Oh, and do you think TO maybe got a pair of tickets to this game from a mysterious benefactor with the initials "JG"?

While you may be right cave man, i think people are looking for marty's players (especially LT) to overcome his deficient game plan. If the chargers win, i am unsure as to how much of it will be b/c of Marty.

I've got a suggestion for your next vacation, Frazer.

No need for that, rcade. I think frazer has erected his very own Judith Light monument.

How is the lock of the week San Diego when they do not have them covering. Yet they have Seattle covering easily and not a lock? No wonder they are not making money- they can not even follow their own predictions. Bet real money and I bet (pun intended) they will pay more attention to details.

YO?? You really must be a caveman to be have that kind of prediction. How exactly would LT get his yards if they "slow" the run??? If LT gets his yards, its pretty much Game Over. It is a huge impact, it wont be meaningless. The retort from the Cave: Tiki Barber ran wild on the Eagles last week. Guess what? Big yards by a running back mean nothing if he cranks them out between his 20 and the opponent's 40. Plus, "getting his yards" when the Pats slow the run could mean that he gets 75 yards for the game, which I think is a more likely outcome than him running for the type of yards that Barber had last week. The Patriots will use Dillon, Maroney and their other great, pass catching running back to soften up the Charger's defense, Brady will take them apart after that.

Yeah, I think the Pats would be ok letting LT get a bunch of yards between the tackles, one run at a time. It's if he bounces out and goes for 50+, that's the end of their season.
