NFL WILD CARD WEEKEND
Saturday, January 6th
Sunday, January 7
Line on each game--
Indy (-7) Seattle ( -2.5) NE (-8.5) Philly (-7)
Bet the over on KC/Indy unless it is raining (that's a joke...)
I would like to see Kansas City upset Indianapolis. Seattle beat Dallas. New England beat New York and for the Eagles to CRUSH the Giants.
I know it is a tall order but those are my wishes.
Great ! All on NBC/Fox?
Hope we have some good games. Good luck to all the teams who made it, and their fans of course. Football doesn't matter too much, it's only a game (that's my rationalization after the Bengals' choke job in slow motion).
Im glad the Cowboys play at 8pm so I can be home from work to watch.
Further, I hope the defense shows up this time.
Indy/KC on NBC
NE/Jets on CBS
Philly/NY on Fox
The Colts, Cowboys, Patriots, and Eagles move on to the next round.
Dallas winning may be wishing thinking on my part as a fan..but it could go either way.
I noticed Chris Carter picked the Seahawks on the yahoo NFL page due to their home field advantage.
On the other hand the Cowboys have played well away from home this year for some reason.
Hopefully it wont be a blow out either way, close games are much more fun to watch.
Im rooting for the Giants to beat the Eagles, but dont think they can.
(Runs and hides)
I know, that was cautionary advice to fans of the teams who are in it. I plan on watching for sure. I like most of the teams who made it so I won't feel upset regardless who triumphs.
I'm a bit surprised that the last Pats-Jets playoff game wasn't written or talked about much by the local media.
I've got the KC/Indy game on Autotune. Thanks for the reminder.
You'd better beat Mangina and the Jests tomorrow...
Sometimes teams on the ascent take a step back before they move forward again. My Pats were the "hot" Super Bowl pick in 1995 after they'd made the playoffs the previous year. They went a very dissapointing 6-10 that year but bounced back the following season with the AFC championship.
I know, it's almost good that the Bengals lost so that some needed changes can be made. They weren't quite ready this season. D needs a revamp, and more work has to be done on gameplanning and in-game adjustments. It's almost like they just showed up every week and expected to win, without preparing.
Marvin is a great coach, but he is underachieving. 4 seasons, 3 of which ended with an 8-8 record. This one was especially tough given the way they started (winning 3 straight), and the way it ended (losing 3 straight, when winning only 1 of those would have landed a playoff berth).
It will be a long offseason but hopefully an instructive one. Good luck to the Pats.
GO pick up a 12 pack and some snacks after your round of golf, sit back in your Hilton Head off-season homes and enjoy the games.
$%#@!&*^% UNDERACHIEVING LOSERS!
KC just can't let Indy jump out to a two score lead early. If they can avoid that then they can pound away Johnson.
Dallas shouldn't have much trouble scoring points tonight since Seattle is pulling fans out of the stands to play in their secondary. However Seattle still could outscore them.
You can bet the suits at Fox will be pulling for Dallas tonight and Philly tomorrow so they then can have Dallas at Chicago next Saturday night.
Lewis knows what he needs it's just a matter of being able to acquire the right personnel.
It really didn't help having Warren and Seymour (for most of it) out.
Harrison is going to be out again...he came back and played,what? -5 plays ,and is out again..damn....
It would be nice to win at least one playoff game again huh?
We lost our last 3 I think.
I know. Hopefully his teammates will give him the chance to play again this year by extending the season.
Well, I just hope the Patriots come prepared. Has Brady gotten over the specter of Jason Taylor yet?
4 actually. Sorry.
Brady isn't the one who has a problem with him. It's frigen Matt Light who has ALWAYS had a problem with him.
I'm excited that the Cowboys made the playoffs! The last games of regular season haven't given me much confidence in 'em winning, though.
I won $$ off a buddy of mine, who is a Panther's fan, that my team would be in and his wouldn't.
Even as bad as the last 4 games were (especially the last one) at least we do have a QB this time...
I predict our defense plays well after their humiliating break down against the Lions.
They arent as bad as that looked.
You can be sure they didn't have a pleasant week of practice.
I bet. lol
Tuna wasnt at all happy.
Matt Light's problem is by necessity Tom Brady's problem.
Indy learned to stop the run for a drive. Amazingly enough....
Tony Gonzalez with the Scarface impersonation in the intros too, that was pretty good...
Addai gets the start..about time Dungy recognizes what he has in that guy..(he's my rookie keeper in my FF keeper league)
KC needs to put the Blitz on Manning.
Now Vinatieri does the FG try and it is...TIME OUT!
I hope Vinny misses.
I had him and Bush in FF...I won my league. I did bench Addai the next to last game fro Ron Dayne.
Why did Indy waste a timeout there?
