I've been crazy/busy and I guess everyone else has. Where's all the smack on the playoffs this weekend? I'll kick it off with a poll.

I think some home team is going down. Just hoping its not the Pack.

Pats are going to get beat by Jags.

Dallass is going to get beat by NY.

If the weather's really bad, the Jags have a decent chance.

Seahawks over Packers.

Too many OT losses the last few years in the playoffs for the Hawks. Its time they pull out a playoff road win and the Packers are vulnerable in the playoffs at home.

Its going to be tough, but I think the Hawks pull it off if the Hawks D actually shows up for the game as they did last week.

I put this in a previous thread, but I believe that the Jaguars have a very good chance of upsetting the Patriots.

It wouldn't surprise me much to see the Giants beat Dallas, but I expect Romo to pull a last minute miracle out of his arse like he always seems to.

Packers win. Farve wills it to happen.

Colts win. Rivers is just too inconsistent for the Chargers to beat the Colts, especially if Harrison is back.

The two best teams in each conference (Pats/Colt and Pack/'Boys) are, I believe, head-and-shoulders better than the teams they are facing. The Jags would scare me more if I thought Garrard could make some plays downfield. A well-coached team can always take away at least one thing that the other guys do well; you can always take away the run OR the pass, not always both. Belichick will bring Rodney up to the line of scrimmage and take away the run game, or at least limit the damage. You know the Pats will put points on the board; they'll be aggressive early and try and force Jacksonville to play catch-up (not their forte). Asante's pretty much a shut-down corner at this point, so that's not going to leave Garrard too many places to put the ball.

The Colts are good - damn good - and I ain't betting on a Norv Turner team (especially one with an above-average number of hotheads) in the playoffs. If Gates is out, they're in even worse shape.

San Diego's definitely going down. Rivers has no arm and LT can't carry them...
