Viking vs. Colts in the bowl that is super in nature.

I will be rooting for Mark SanCHISE though, that's for sure.

I'm soooo rooting for Saints-Jets, which is why I'm 100% convinced it'll be Vikings-Colts.

Either way, I'm stoked for this weekend's Double Stuf Racing League matchup between the Mannings and the Donalds

I went 1-3 last week, evening my record for the postseason. So with that and me actually putting money on these games this week, these picks are especially important for me. So that said:

- AFC championship: Jets defeat Colts, 20-17

For all the talk about the Colts and their perfect season, a lot of people forgot their weaknesses and that those weak points nearly cost them their perfection several times earlier in the season. Their defense is not top notch, at least not as good as San Diego, IMO. Which means that the while the Jets won't light it up offensively, they won't get shut out, either. The Jets run game will take advantage and as a result will eat up the clock, giving Peyton less time than normal to go down the field. He has shown himself to be a bit iffy in the postseason and from what I understand, he also has problems with the type of D the Jets play (the 3-4, I believe). All of this will combine to put NY in the Super Bowl. Unlikely, you say? Well, no more than it was when the Cardinals went to the super bowl last year. Or when the Giants won two years ago. It seems to me that the 'big one' has had some surprising contenders the last couple of years. And I expect that trend to continue. Indy will regret laying off that week 16 game.


- NFC championship: Saints defeat Vikings, 38-17

Any questions I had about New Orleans were answered when they got hit in the mouth right away by Arizona... and promply proceeded to stomp the Cards to death and walk it dry. Their offense looks excellent all over and I don't see anyone stopping it, not even Minnesota's. Meanwhile, I know Farve had a career game last week. Knowing how inconsisent he is in the postseason though, I don't see him repeating that performance. You also have to note how AD (all day) is looking AWO (all worn out) this late in the season. I can't see the Vikes matching the Saints firepower and can see this one becoming a blowout. This could in fact be one of those games that 'ends early'- it could already be decided by the beginning of the second half, making the rest of the game a bit of a borefest.

Statistically they're almost equal in passing yards, rushing yards, and points per game. (Chargers slightly ahead in all categories.) They both give up 4.3 yards per rush which is ... bad, and where the Jets is gon getcha. Even if Sanchez is at his Trent Dilferiest I don't think a team with a rookie quarterback can make it to the Super Bowl (Roethlisberger and Flacco both collapsed pretty badly when they got to the AFCCG), even if it would be vintage Colts to get totally disrupted by the #1 defense.

Has anyone's thoughts changed after the almost monumental defeat to my Dores on Sat.??? (not meant as a flame, just some healthy post game chatter) Vandy will beat UT this year...mark my words.
