    Divisional Round Weekend

    I'm hoping Denver and Houston win. A New England-Baltimore AFC Championship Game would be lose-lose in my opinion.

    I'm also hoping New York and San Fransisco win.

    Conference championship quarterbacks of T.J. Yates, Tim Tebow, Eli Manning and Alex Smith, while Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees (though I find it hard not to like Brees), sit at home? Yes please. Here's to the little guy!

    How can you like Brees and not the rest? Brees won it 2 years ago. Rodgers won it last year. Brady has not won since 2005.

    Brady has won enough, and I don't like Colin Cowherd. Brady really isn't that bad of a guy, but give somebody else a chance :p

    Re: Divisional Round Weekend

    My ideal - SF wins, NE wins, Houston wins, NYG win.

    NYG over SF. Houston over NE.

    Houston over NYG in Superbowl.


    However, realistically it will be

    NO vs. Green Bay
    NE vs. Ravens

    Green Baby vs. NE - NE pulls home the SB

    Obviously I dislike Rodgers because I'm a Bears fan.

    I hate Brady, Belichick and anything associated with the New England Patriots since Spygate. I fully understand teams will do anything to get an advantage. The "genius" organization was dumb enough to try to get an advantage against a former assistant, who knew exactly how they go about things.

    It's like a boss using his old tactics to try to figure out how his former employee is running his new business.

    Did Belichick really think Mangini wouldn't know what he was doing? Is he really that dumb and foolish? I hate fools, therefore, I hate the New England Patriots.

    Wow. The quarterback keeper to put the 49ers ahead was one of best playcalls I've seen in along time.

    That's a pretty solid prediction.

    If the Green Bay D decides to show up, than I doubt there will be very little to stop them. If they play like they have been the latter part of the season, I can see it playing out like you state.

    Re: Divisional Round Weekend

    The last five minutes of the 49ers/Saints game was ridiculous! Watched the first half, but had to get wireless updates in Hilton last night. I think someone said that by the time San Francisco scored the winning TD, the lead had changed four times in the final 4:02 of play. Candlestick (or whatever the F they call it now - always will be Candlestick to me) was hopping the whole time.


    All people who make sweepingly generalized, stupid, uninformed comments are idiots.

    (maybe)

    When every team was doing it, it was really not that big of deal. They just got caught. Eric Mangini has said he regreated how it turned out.

    Eric Mangini regret -- Spygate role alienated Bill Belichick - ESPN New York

    If you think, that the Patriots were the only ones doing it, you are very misinformed. Was it right? No.

    But anytime something happens with the Patriots it is blown up. Example: See Josh McDaniels this year with the coaching change.

    NFL could close 'McDaniels loophole' - New England Patriots Blog - ESPN Boston

    I do find it interesting that this becomes an issue when it happens with the Patriots, but there wasn't much outcry or discussion in 2009 when the Cowboys had a similar situation or the Broncos in 1989. Why now? If I'm a coach and the NFL adopts a rule blocking this, I'd attempt to form some type of stonger, more official group/union that fights something blocking my ability to work.

    But, haters gonna hate.

    I already said that everyone is doing it. I never said I hated them for it. I hate them because they were dumb enough to get caught.

    As for McDaniels getting caught again in Denver, I say that had a part in his dismissal from the Broncos, which I think was the correct the decision.

    I had no knowledge of something such as this happening in 1989, as I was 4 years old at the time.

    I didn't either as I was 1, but I do read articles on the Internet.
