I’m going to Tivo it and wait till about 8:30 before watching so I can skip through the commercials.
This is probably the first time since they implemented home-field advantage based on seedings that a team with the better record has to go on the road for a conference championship game.
I remember the 72 Dolphins had to go to Pittsburgh, but back then the home field advantage was rotated by division.
I don’t recall it happening since.
12 points with 2 minutes left.
I’m still holding my breath.
Keine Handlung beabsichtigte, groß... aber die war auf den ursprünglichen Deutsch besser!
Wir stimmen zu... Wir stimmen zu!
Heil... Brett Babes!

Should be interesting.
Dinner turned out ok... the corned beef was not as tender as I had hoped. For St. Patrick's Day it will have to be perfect.
Not me, old sport! I'm watching... them Golden Globes tonight!
That is... if I can get Tony out of the shower!
Eagles - Cards (+2)
Steelers - Ravens (+2)
No doubt the Ravens/Steelers game is the Super Bowl...the winner will win the Super Bowl.
What a great weekend!!!!
Now 6-2 against the spread, including 6 in a row....
Now, before Jack Bauer kicks ass, lets look at next week’s games.....
NFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
EAGLES@CARDINALS(3:00pm EST/FOX)——If anyone picked this matchup at the start of the playoffs, please let me know so I could gain some advice on important issues in life. This should easily be the higher scoring of the 2 games. Again, can Arizona establish the run consistantly enough to take some pressure off of Kurt Warner? Or does that Eagles D, playing as good at D in the last few games as I can ever recall make Kurt make the same mistakes that Jack Delhomme made last night?
I’m gonna say this is listed as a pick ‘em game. I really want Arizona not to lose and for the dream season to go on............OK then.......
EAGLES 23 CARDINALS 24
AFC CHAMPIONSHIP GAME
RAVENS@STEELERS(6:30PM EST/CBS)-——Since 24 is on, let’s skip through the crap. Everybody knows this is all about the defense, and how well Joe Flacco will perform under pressure.
I would place the Steelers as 4 point favorites. As I am picking the Ravens to go to the Super Bowl, I’m not backing off now, am I?
RAVENS 14 STEELERS 7
Flights have been slow lately. Even students not showing up.
I am going to postpone all activities to make sure I watch that game ... if any FReeper goes to The Ram at the “U Village” I’ll be there with friends .....
1) If we get the Eagles versus Steelers, the entire state of Pennsylvania will be turned upside down. We'll be arguing who has the best cheesesteak, the classic "Philly cheesesteak" or the Primanti Brothers version, just for starters!
2) If we get the Eagles versus Ravens, the folks in northern Delaware will be caught in the middle, to say the least. And ESPN's Scott Van Pelt won't be speaking to fellow ESPNer Sal Paolantonio for months, either.
All Pennsy final. After that it it depends on who’s willing to risk the most injury for the ring.
Check your e-mail!
Corned beef is delicious if its cooked right. Most places serve it and its tough like leather.
Although it wasn't as tender tonight as I like it, the meal was delicious.
Bring the wine! : )
We occasionally get served by the U.S. Postal Service.
That's when the stagecoach is running on time.
Gonna knock off for the night and get ready for school tomorrow.
Have a great night! You're well thought of.
Same here - going to watch the rest of The Godfather .... signing off as well ...
The sucking sound you hear the ratings of the league title games and the Super bowl going down the crapper.
I think the Eagles can beat either the Steelers or the Ravens if they get past Arizona next week.
That Iggles D Is every bit as good as the Ravens is now. And of course so is the Steelers too.
So what we have are 3 great defenses and 1, in Arizona, that came up large when it needed to. They have shined in spurts, not as consistent as the other 3.
I would think most will think the SB will be the battle of PA. As I said in the earlier post, I won’t pick against the Ravens now. And if Anquain comes back and plays the dream could continue.
Still on cloud 9??
You should go, and witness history in person!!!
Am I allowed on the bus yet?
Yesterday was a great day of football and “24”. Don’t forget to watch tonight at 8:00 for two more new shows!
Didn’t see any of the outcomes before hand....(chuckle)
Who knenw Kurt Warner had a time machine that could take us all back to 1999, and The Greatest Show on Turf for 30 minutes?
Dick Cheney is the man!
Steelers Super Bowls get great ratings. They’ve got a strong national following. But really it’s the Super Bowl, even “bad” ratings for it are the highest rated item of the year but a factor.
Uh Westbrook didn’t do anything against the Giants and the Eagles won. McNabb gets lambasted by the local fans/press when he stinks it up. They are just playing to their potential now. Kurt Warner is going out on a stretcher.
Eagles were lucky the Giants couldn’t convert on third down (or 4th down either) .
And what numbnuts called Eli’s number to take it up the middle on 4th and 1?
BTW, I freely admit I’m a Steelers fan and therefore hate the Iggles!
See you in Tampa!
