    It sucks that we're out of it but the games should be good.


    CARDINALS: Is this the year of the unthinkable? Cardinals in the Super Bowl?!!! They completely shut down MT in the first playoff game and made the Panthers running game a non factor last week. Can they make McNabb look like Delome? Just when it seemed that defenses had Warner figured out, he gets even better!

    EAGLES: This seems to be the recent Super Bowl trend. Teams that just make it to the playoffs and that are expected to get knocked off in the first round seem to come together in the playoffs, make the distance, and win it all. That seems to be the Eagles destiny. Will fate finally swing in McNabb and Reid's direction?

    RAVENS: They finally got a QB!!! Flacco... the first rookie QB to play in the Super Bowl? Now that's a story!!! They took a pounding last week but you always will when you're playing the Titans at home.

    STEELERS: Seems that Roethlisberger, Ward, Polamalu, etc. aren't done yet. One ring isn't enough. First team to have six titles?

    Probably. Only game I'm mildly interested in is the Cardinals/Eagles game.

    Go eagles (in the most unenthusiastic voice ever).

    I watch all playoff games regardless of who is playing. I love football.

    And yes, I am cheering for the Ravens. :icon_tease:

    Yep, I'll be watching both games.

    In the NFC, Kurt Warner will go down early to an injury. Matt Leinart will come on to throw three interceptions..two for touchdowns. Donovan McNabb will have one of the best days of his career and throw for over three hundred yards and two touchdowns.

    In Pittsburg, the Ravens will be smited by the Steeler defense which will hold the Ravens to 10 points. Rothlisberger will have a fine day as will Hines Ward who catches two TD passes. Ravens defense breaks down and allows the Steelers to control the ball for enormous amounts of time.

    Eagles-Steelers will be in the Super Bowl.

    My dad (who passed away in 2001) was from Philly. When we lived in New Jersey, the first game I really watched all the way through was Giants-Eagles where Herman Edwards returned a fumble all the way for a TD and the Eagles went to the playoffs. Been hooked on football ever since, so I'm kinda hoping Philly does win. But, I also like Arizona. Guess I really don't mind who really wins that one.

    As far as Ravens-Steelers go, both of their earlier matches went down to the last play. I'll bet that happens here too. Look for a 10-9 final.

    I think the best slugfest of the entire playoffs will take place today in Pittsburgh.

    The game is going to be very physical....look for injuries an lots of flags.

    ...As Ron Jaworski likes to call these types of match-ups, it'll be MANHOOD football! I love physical games like this and the fact that it's supposed to snow makes it even better!

    Sorry to hear about your father. Mine passed two years ago.
    I lived in Philly for three years. Great city but of course, doesn't compare to San Diego. I went to a Eagles/Chargers game back this (this was in the lat 80's, so you know they sucked) and the Chargers won!!

    My first ever Chargers game was in 81 (I think). They played against the Baltimore Colts at Memorial stadium, and they won!!!

    NORV MUST GO!!!

    All this crap about firing everybody except Norv is gut wrenching!!!
    AJ just doesn't want to admit that he made a mistake, so he's going to blame everybody else!!
