I figured since all yous people chimed in with picks last week, I mine as well see how we all did. Small numbers are boring so I worked out a scoring system that gives 7 pts for a right pick and 3 extra pts for the person who got the closest pick for each game. Cute ain't it?

The people who picked the four games the closest-

Tennessee 20 - Baltimore 17, Ffej picked 21-17

Carolina 29 - Dallas 10, Broncolanche had the biggest margin of victory with 18 as no one came close to picking the score.

Green Bay 33 - Seattle 27, Evil Waldo was closest to the margin of victory. He had the Pack by 7 which it would have been anyway since they don't kick pat's in over time.

Indi 41 - Denver 10, About half of us picked the Broncos and no one who took the Colts had them by 31. BosSports takes the 3 pts for taking Indi by 17.

So here's your standings after the wild card weekend.

Ffej - 31
NHS - 28
Sec19 - 28
Mayhem - 28
BosSports - 24
The Thrill - 21
dmr - 21
whatever - 21
redsoxnation - 21

Quezzy - 21

Big Bad - 14
Texas Kelly - 14
Lexus - 14
Grimis - 14
Santa Sangre - 14
Drunk Broadway - 7
Calvin - 7
spf - 7

Here's my picks for divisional weekend

Philly 20 - Green Bay 17
St. Louis 33 - Carolina 10
Tennessee 28 - New England 21
Kansas City 35 - Indi 31

Wow 1-4 last week.

NE 24-Tenn 12
McNair tries his hardest but he is just to beat-up. Plus there is no way Tenn Runs for 164 on the Pats.

Rams 28-Car 10
It will be 21-0 at half and the Rams will just coast for the second half.

GB 21-Philly 17
God wants GB to lose to the Rams in the NFC Championship game in two weeks.

Y'see, I made my Wienerboard picks too early. I did end up taking both Indy and Tennessee (as well as GB and Carolina) on ProLine, which means I had a pretty sweet weekend.

Picks for next week....

New England by a hair over Tennessee. This will be football at its roughest, folks [/Dierdorf]

KC over Indy

Green Bay over Philadelphia

Carolina over St. Louis (just a hunch)

Rob asks Dave and Ric if they want to go backstage to play Hungry Hungry Hippos and Flair and Batista immediately bail. Flair wants to be Green. Man, EVERYBODY wants to be green. Except the girl in the commercials. She wanted to be pink. That either means that the ad agency was sexist or that she was communist. Of course Hungry Hungry Hippos is a rather capitalist game isnít it? No self respecting communist would play Hungry Hungry Hippos. Except Stalin. He LOVED Hungry Hungry Hippos.

Carolina 27, St. Louis 24
I'm gonna be very ballsy and predict that Carolina's D will do just enough to make Bulger look ordinary.

New England 17, Tennessee 10
Someone else mentioned that McNair was too beat-up, and I think Belichick has his boys focused enough to win their 13th straight.

Kansas City 45, Indianapolis 28
I'll be rooting for KC in this one, only because I wanna see Manning's leg broken.

Philadelphia 28, Green Bay 17

Obstinately continuing to refuse to pick scores:

Green Bay over Philadelphia: Same pick as before. Not that I'm a huge Packer fan, but (a) Philly is banged up, (b) they're about due for their annual playoff flameout anyway.

St. Louis over Carolina: Same pick as before, leading to a downright ugly NFC Championship matchup.

Indianapolis over Kansas City: There are two AFC teams remaining that I'd like to see in the Super Bowl, and these aren't them. I'll go with Indy if only because I really don't care for Kansas City, but this is (IMHO) the weakest of my four picks.

New England over Tennessee: The Titans are just too banged up. It won't be a blowout, though.

"As far as my lack of professional courtesy and my obvious immature humor in referring to using your head as a pickle jar, well, I reserve my courtesy for those whom I respect. Your lack of personal integrity has given me much grief, and I find that thinking of your hollowed-out head sitting on top of my fridge and providing a safe haven for pickles is a comforting thought."

I suck at picking actual scores, but here goes anyway.

Green Bay vs. Philadelphia - Green Bay in a close game, 21-17.
Carolina vs. St. Louis - St. Louis over big, 31-13.

Indianapolis vs. Kansas City - Kansas City goes over here, too. 42-21.
Tennessee vs. New England - New England in a tough game, 17-14.

Chiefs 31, Colts 10
No way the Colts can do it again. NO way.

Patriots 17, Titans 13
This is a hard game to pick. Either one can win it, but I think the winner of this game wins the AFC.

Rams 30, Panthers 14
Thank you, come again

Packers 21, Eagles 17
The Packers are a team of destiny; I just feel it.

CAROLINA PANTHERS v. ST. LOUIS RAMS - The Detroit Lions, of all teams, gave the rest of the National Football League one of the greatest gifts one can give: The blueprint to beat the St. Louis Rams at full strength. Sure, that game was at Ford Field, this one's on the carpet; Carolina, however, is on a roll and one of the few teams in the conference that match up very well against the Rams. If Stephen Davis gets his yards and Steve Smith gets hot again, the Panthers will squeak it out. PANTHERS 24, RAMS 20

TENNESSEE TITANS v. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS - Week after week, the Titans have proved to be titans of a different sort. That performance by McNair & George last week in the second half was nothing short of amazing. That being said, the task ahead of them looks way too tall for my liking. Tom Brady got jobbed in the Pro Bowl balloting, the Master is sizing up his prey, it will be loud, and it will be cold. Tennessee is great, but they don't do what they did if it's cold in Baltimore over the weekend. PATRIOTS 27, TITANS 13

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS v. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS - This is shaping up as the shootout of the year. Kansas City's defense plays much better at home, but it doesn't match up wel against Indianapolis' three-headed attack. Then again, Priest Holmes will have a field day against that atrocious Colts run defense, guaranteed. Back and forth this one will go all day long until karma finally catches up with Indy: Yes, folks, they need a long one to tie it and Vanderjagt the Asshole shanks it. CHIEFS 34, COLTS 31

GREEN BAY PACKERS v. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES - Let's watch the progression: Irwin Favre dies, Brett plays the game of his life, the gods intervene viz-a-viz the Arizona Cardinals, then Al Harris. Yes, I believe - the Packers are a team of divine destiny. While this is a bad matchup for them on paper, this is not the same Packers team the Eagles smacked around earlier in the season. Defense is the buzzword of the day, and Favre will find a way in the end. PACKERS 16, EAGLES 13

Titans v. Patriots
I think these are the two best teams in the NFL. Patriots ran all over the Titans, minus Haynesworth, earlier this year. I don't think that will happen again. Eddie George is back on top of his game. Over the last eight weeks he has 168 carries for 633 yards for a 3.7 average. The eight weeks before that it was 149 for 444 for 2.9. The titans can run again, they are the best at stopping the run, and there is little to no chance Steve Mcnair will have two bad games in a row. His rating against the Ravens was 56.5; the last two times he had a rating under 70.0 it was over 140.0 the next week. Titans take an early lead throwing and hold off the Patriots running and playing great defense. It will be close all the way though. Final score 23-21.

KC v. Indy
Indy wins big behind Manning. 38-17.

Panthers v. Rams
Rams 28-6

Eagles v. Packers
Eagles 17-16.

I really can't wait to play Halo 2.

Yeah, I missed the first round. Do I get half-credit for just knowing the winners?

What drives me nuts is there are good reasons to go against all the AFC contenders...

Colts @ Chiefs: Karma, here we are. Vanderjagt, meet karma. Karma, meet Vandgerjadt.
28-27 Chiefs

Titans @ Pats: Eddie George was otherworldly last week. Steve McNair was not. I figure a reversal of fortunes here, with McNair proving why I don't like to bet against him. The Pats have done a great job all year, but this would make 13 straight. That just seems a little too crazy to me.
21-17 Titans

Panthers @ Rams: Fortunately, there will be at least 1 blowout this weekend.
35-23 Rams

Packers @ Eagles: I'm not picking against the spirit of a dead guy. I've seen waaaaay too many horror movies to go against the will of the dead.
24-17 Packers

And don't forget being up 17 with 5 and change to go and being a 7 point favorite. Coupled with Zona blowing a 16 point lead late, it wasn't a good day out of the NFC West.
