I'm only in my second year of following the NFL, and I haven't really picked a team to cheer for yet. I also don't know much about strategy, so I'll skip all the prelims and just say:

Indianapolis over Seattle.

I know it's the easy pick, but I don't expect too many surprises.

About the Bucs game, all I have to say is this:

When we beat the Redskins under questionable circumstances, the Redskins had the courtesy of having the play that decided the game reviewed, even when it was ambiguous at best to see how it would turn out. When the Redskins beat us today, we did not get that same courtesy... and what's worse, the review would have been crystal-clear as to the call being wrong.

Arrington's return of his interception of Simms. You know, the play where he clearly FUMBLED THE BALL back to the Bucs before being brought down, and the idiot refs ruled him down by contact, not only depriving us of the ball but of a chance to challenge, leading to Portis being in the end zone one play later. That was the difference in the game, ultimately, because with the right call there, the game would have been tied 10-10 in the fourth when we went for it on fourth down, and we would have kicked it instead.

We lost to Chicago the EXACT SAME WAY, only without the dubious circumstances.

Well, I guess I'm a little late to the party, but at least I'll give some full disclosure: I picked Tampa to win today.

Having said that:

NFC Wild Card Sunday: Giants over Panthers... Which Carolina team shows up? I think the one that lost to Miami, Baton Orlantonio and Dallas.
AFC Wild Card Sunday: Steelers over Bengals... Cincy's offense won't be on the field enough to make a difference.

NFC Divisional: Redskins over Seahawks... Seattle beat just two playoff teams: the Colts' second string, and the Giants via Feely's f-ups.
NFC Divisional: Bears over Giants... Poor Eli won't know what hit him.
AFC Divisional: Colts over Steelers... Indy's D > Cincy's D.
AFC Divisional: Patriots over Broncos... Jake Plummer finally realizes he's Jake Plummer.

NFC: Bears over Redskins... Payback for the 9-7 week 1 thriller.
AFC: Patriots over Colts... As a Gator, I can't help but expect Manning to come up short when it counts.

XL: Bears 46, Patriots 10... 1986 redux.

It was nice of the refs to flag and kick out Sean Taylor after Michael Pittman slapped/punched him.

Apparently Taylor spat at Pittman. I didn't see it (and neither did the guys calling the game, as they were all over the refs until the spitting explanation came out), but if that's the case then Pittman didn't do anything wrong.

He's used to cheering for a crappy team. The REAL question is, will he finally change his signature and/or avatar?

(DISCLAIMER: I too am used to cheering for a crappy team)

In playoff history at the Meadowlands, it is now Opponents 64 Manning Brothers 0.
A quick look at the last 2 playoff games the Bengals participated in: In 1-91 they lose to the Raiders, but destroy Bo Jackson's hip in the process. 1-06 they lose to the Steelers, but have Carson Palmer's knee virtually destroyed. Just when you think you can take the Bungle out of the Bengals, they blow a 17-7 home playoff lead and get buried with a double pass.
It's False

Pittsburg played some physical football today and the Bengals were dropping like flies, so much so that I almost thought the Steelers were playing to hurt people more than win. They looked like juggernauts, though, and I'm seriously considering betting against Indy next week.

As for the Giants, there goes my NFC Super Bowl pick. Props to Carolina, because they shut down Tiki Barber big time.
whatever

Wow, after watching the Cincy-Pitt game, I really felt for the Bengals fans 'cause the Bengals really looked like the Browns out there. That flea-flicker especially killed me. God, I hate the Steelers.

Well turns out most people got burnt on the NYG/Panthers game. Myself, I doubted the Patriots. And I think I was the only one to pick against them. I still have my doubts about them.

I also wonder how the Bengal's would've done if Palmer didn't get hurt.

I'm only 3/4. I picked the Jaguars because I didn't realize that they would have forgotten how to play football so quickly. Plus, Brady has to lose someday - right? Anyway, fixing my AFC picks.

Denver over New England
- Both the Broncos and the Patriots have been much better than I thought they'd be. Can Champ, Lynch, and the Browns keep the Pats out of the endzone? I think they can, and I think Denver's offense will continue to play well enough to win this one.


Indianapolis over Pittsburgh
- The Steelers didn't look all that strong against Kitna and the supposed "No D" Bengals until late in the game. Peyton and the Colts should have this one figured out. Plus nobody wants to disappoint the Broncos and make them miss their revenge game, right?

Seattle over Washington
Chicago over Carolina

New England over Denver
Indianapolis over Pittsburgh

Chicago over Seattle
New England over Indianapolis
