Here are some more thoughts from a demented mind in Central Florida: Not sure I'm sold on my post-wild-card-weekend picks (as I really haven't been following the season that closely), but here are my less-than-semi-educated guesses/picks:
Indianapolis Colts over Kansas City Chiefs Cincinnati Bengals over San Diego Chargers
Denver Broncos over Indianapolis Colts New England Patriots over Cincinnati Bengals
Denver Broncos over New England Patriots
New Orleans Saints over Philadelphia Eagles Green Bay Packers over San Francisco 49ers
Seattle Seahawks over New Orleans Saints Carolina Panthers over Green Bay Packers
Seattle Seahawks over Carolina Panthers
SUPER BOWL: Denver Broncos over Seattle Seahawks in a close one.
Why yes, I am both a musician and a lawyer. Thanks for asking. :)
49ers over Packers Eagles over Saints Colts over Chiefs Bengals over Chargers
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
Chiefs over Colts Bengals over Chargers Eagles over Saints Packers over 49ers
If the Eagles have any chance at all, then this is the best possible road to the Super Bowl for them (and by best, I mean least bad): drawing the Saints in Philly in the first round, and then playing the Panthers in Carolina in the second round while somebody else tries to knock off the Seahawks in Seattle.
Originally posted by Mr Heel IIOne of the talk show hosts on ESPN Radio this morning noted that the 49'ers-Packers game hasn't sold out yet, which is unheard of.
According to NFL.com, as of Tuesday in Cincinnati, the Bengals had 10,000 tickets available for their game Sunday against San Diego.
Poetic justice about the ticket situation in Cincy. Refs blew the KC/SD game and if it's Pittsburgh instead of San Diego, it would have been a sellout by Monday afternoon as Steeler fans would have snatched them up.

There was a blurb yesterday in SI.com's "Truth & Rumors" section about how the Carolina Panthers could be interested in putting together a package in hopes of moving up to the #1 spot to nab Brady Quinn ... but again, pure speculation ...
