First week of the playoffs....

Whos gonna win???

1> Tampa vs Philly

>It's January and in Philadelphia that means cold weather, >which historically means a Tampa Bay loss. The Bucs are 0->20 when the temperature is 40 degrees or colder at kickoff >and the temperature is expected to be below 40 when the >game kicks off.

Kind of explains it all. Philly wins 24-13

2> NY vs Oakland

I just don't see Gruden letting them lose again. Call me crazy, but I think Oakland runs away with this one. I just can't pick Testeverde to win a playoff game...

Oakland 31-10

3> San Fran vs Green Bay

Another cold weather game... This is great, all these cold weather games leading to a Dome Super Bowl... Play the bowl in Soldier Field or Lambeau for more excitement.

Weather won't hurt the 'Niners, except may be T. Owens, whose dropsies cost them the game.

Packers 35-27

4> Baltimore vs Dolphins

Hey, what can I say. I am a big, big Dolfan... You know what? I was happy to see the Ravens win Monday, so the 'Fins don't have to play the Jets.

This is not the same Raven team as last year, and I don't just mean the Offense. The D is not the same, not as scary. The Dolphins D will hold Grbac below 100 yds. Look at opposing QBs yardage numbers this year in Miami. Gannon=120yds, Brady=86yds, Testeverde=86, Griese=135, Manning=170.

Dolphins knock out the defending champs... 24-13

That means next week it's

Philly at St Louis (hope its as good as the regular season game)

Green Bay at Chicago (bad news for Bears fans)

Oakland at New England (Antwain Smith is smiling...)

Miami at Pittsburgh (so is the Bus...)

Not to be picky but if Philly wins, they play Chicago, not the Rams. If the Bucs win, then they play St. Louis (Not Bracket style system, highest seed plays lowest seed system). I'm required to point this out as a Bears fan.

Philly, not because of the cold weather factor but because Tampa has a lot of trouble with teams that are their equal or better on defense.

Green Bay because Favre just won't let the Bears enjoy this season. However, I'll let them play St. Louis because if they win, they have to face the stigma of beating a team 3 times in one year.

Jets because Oakland is falling flat on their asses.

Miami because their going in hot and the Ravens don't trust their QB

- Philly vs. Tampa Bay: I think Philly takes this one. I sure hope Philly takes this one, since I DON'T want to see Green Bay again this year. Seriously though, I think McNabb is ready to have a big playoff win, and cement his place in the top QB's in the NFL.

- San Fran vs. Green Bay: Favre. Lambeau. Cold Weather. Packers. San Fran will put up a fight, but in the end you don't beat Green Bay at home in January.

- Oakland vs. Jets: I'm seeing a Jets win here, with a big game by Curtis Martin being the difference maker for the Jets. Oakland is going into late season fold mode.

- Miami vs. Baltimore: Having lived under Wannstedt coaching for a few years, I have trouble picturing him winning in the playoffs against the defending champs. Ravens get one more week to keep the dream alive.

So we'd be left with:
- Eagles at Bears
- Packers at Rams
- Jets at Steelers
- Ravens at Patriots

There, I feel better now.

Philly/Bucs - Philly wins this one. Tampa has underachieved all year and will do it again this weekend. Plus at the Vet, in the cold Philly is hard to beat. Especially when they are playing a team with little heart like Tampa.

San Fran/GAY - I don't give San Fran a chance in hell. GAY is peaking at the right time and you don't win if you are a visitor in the cold Gree Bay weather.

Jets/Oakland - I go with the Jets. Oakland is folding again and they are looking their age, no matter what they say.

Miami/Baltimore - The Ravens are not going out Wild Card weekend. I see a defensive battle that Miami cannot win.

my picks:

GB over SF, 30-17
Eagles over Bucs, 19-14
Jets over Raiders, 26-20
and Ravens over Dolphins, 820-0 (eh, I'm a Buffalo fan, I can't pick Miami to even come remotely close in any game, it's a law )

To get in on the action here:

Green Bay 33-30 over San Fran, score depening on the weather (good=high score, low=not)

Tampa Bay over Philly 14-10

Raiders 24-14 ove the Jets

Dolphins 20-17 over Baltimore.

But the Patriots and Steeler will both win next week anyway, so the AFC games don't really matter.
