    Re: Playoff rematches

    Dallas. They are the best of the 3 teams you mentioned above and are the only ones that are playing at home.

    ISUFan I told you it was my lock of the year!

    Re: Playoff rematches

    I would take all 3.
    If the Jets play like that again, wow.

    Re: Playoff rematches

    I'll say Green Bay, but that's a homer pick. Obviously, the most interesting game in Dallas/Philly. The pressure is on Romo and the Cowboys now, and his/their results in the past have not been good.

    Re: Playoff rematches

    I will go the opposite route. I would say Dallas is the most likely team to choke. Not saying they will lose, but since all the home teams are favored, I think they're the most likely to lose.

    Re: Playoff rematches

    Cowboys of course! If not I personally think Wade needs to go. Another loss in the playoffs would not sit well with our fan base. I cannot believe it has been since '96 since our last playoff win.

    Re: Playoff rematches

    That's a hard one to pick. I would say Dallas, just because they are the only home team. That being said, I would not be surprised to see Green Bay, Dallas, and NY to all lose this coming weekend.

    Early lines are the Cardinals and Bengals by 2 1/2. The Cowboys are favored by 4 while the Patriots are giving 3 1/2.

    I expect Dallas to repeat and Arizona to win with a more detailed game plan this time around. The Jets and Cincy have been too inconsistent to make a call.

    Re: Playoff rematches

    I think Dallas is the most likely to win again simply because IMO, Philly is a paper tiger and was exposed yesterday. They've defeated zero playoff teams and had one of the easiest schedules in the league.

    I love the way Dallas is playing right now, but my pick has just as much to do with how much of a fake Philly is than it does how Dallas is playing.

    Couldn't you say the same the same thing about the Cardinals? They've been up and down all year.

    Certainly. But I think the Packers are a bit of an anomaly as well. Down the stretch they've been winning, but competition has not been stellar. They got a sissified Dallas team that has since turned it around. Beating Baltimore is nice, but that team has been another season long yo-yo. Stomped Arizona when they weren't even trying.

    I think the Packers are a better team than Philly, but I do look to them as a bit of paper tiger as well.

    Fair enough. All I'm hoping for as a Packer fan is one win. When you consider that this is essentially the same team that finished 6-10 last year, what Green Bay has done this year is pretty impressive. A couple of playoff games is about as good as most Packer fans could have dreamed, as the team is probably a year or two away from being a realistic Super Bowl contender.

    I'm still amazed that we have 3 rematches! Wacky scheduling.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Yup. I think if these things happen...

    - Rodgers gets the ball out quicker
    - Offensive line upgrades
    - Upgrade at running back (Grant is nice, but not a #1 tailback option)
    - Improve the defense
    - Favre retires

    The Packers win the North next season by 2 or 3 games.
