    A team to fear in the playoffs

    Jacksonville Jaguars, hands down.

    Dismantled the Steelers running the ball - 224 yards! They're 5-1 in their last 6 with the one loss being a close one at Indy.

    The combo of Taylor and Jones-Drew is not one I'd like to face, especially in an inclement weather game.

    IMO, this is the team that has the best change to take out the Patriots - if such a thing exists. Especially if that game is a snowy/rainy one - which is entirely possible.

    The Jags will play at the AFC North winner in the first round - Cleveland or Pittsburgh. The Steelers may be thinking a date with San Diego is better than one with Jacksonville.

    I wouldn't blame them.

    The only two I fear worse than JD and Taylor are AP and Chestor Taylor


    Did anyone else hear Taylor on Dan Patrick this morning? Good interview!

    Plus there's nobody scarier on the sidelines than DelRio! (Now that Cowher's scowl is gone that is)



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Re: A team to fear in the playoffs

    I think the Vikes showed last night why they should and should not be feared. AP is a damn good running back. That offense just makes too many mistakes right now.

    I certainly would not feel good about my team facing them though.

    Most likely the Vikes will travel to Seattle in the first round and I would certainly take the Vikings in that one.

    Re: A team to fear in the playoffs

    And Garrard is the perfect compliment to that pair of running backs, he simply does not make mistakes. Add in a very capable young tight end (Lewis) and some decent ball control receivers and it has all the makings for a team that can grind out the clock.

    Grind out the clock indeed.

    I firmly believe the Steelers would have a much better chance of winning at San Diego than they would beating Jacksonville at home.

    Re: A team to fear in the playoffs

    Is Fred Taylor 40 years old yet? He seemed to kind of disappear for a couple of years, injuries me thinky, and now has been rolling the last couple of years.

    Re: A team to fear in the playoffs

    I think the Jags are also the most likely to give the Pats a hard time, if they can get that far.

    I'd look to the last 4 weeks for the Vikes, T-Jax took a step back with the picks, but he's looked really solid lately. Vikes are solid in the NFC right now. Outside of the Boys and Pack they should roll any other NFC team.

    Agree the Jags are tough, but they must not fall behind. Indy beats them when they get on top early and Jax has to pass. Same thing the Pats will try to do if they meet up. Garrard is solid, but he's not an Elway-type comeback kid. Jags need to run and keep the ball.

    Giants and Lions .... wow what happened kids?

    That is what they do best, other than hit parking cops and molest women on boats.

    I've been a Jags fan since they joined the league in 95. And yea it seems like Fred has been on the team since it started. He had a groin injury that either kept him out for the season or he only played a handful of games for about 4 years

    yeah, and normally I'd be cheering for them to go down in flames. But this team is so much harder to hate on.

    Moss, Culpepper, Smith, Carter, and the Whizinator are easy to hate.

    All the kids, AP (the good one), T Jackson, Chester Taylor and the rest of the newbies are pretty likeable - its sickening but I find myself actually pulling for them these days.

    Re: A team to fear in the playoffs

    I also believe now that the Steeler have lost their best End (Smith) and FB (Krieder) they aren't the same team --and now the Jags may prove the best team to beat the Pats.

    I would much rather play San Diego than Jax -although as a Steeler fan I still think we would fare better in a round 2. (I think LeBeau is always historically better the 2nd time around).

    But we could very well lose to them again. As long as weather is a factor the Pats could certainly lose to someone like Jax. The Pats aren't the "cold-weather" team they once were. Moss doesn't play as well, they don't run the ball as well anymore, and their defense has lost a step. OH -and they don't have Vinatierri to bail them out in the snow anymore :)

    They struggled against the Jets somehow, including a gift 6 yard defensive TD. It may not be as open and shut as 99% of the talking heads say it is.
