I'm aware of what you mean, that doesn't make it any less stupid to say.

I'd love for Denver to win it, and maybe even see Peyton ride into the sunset. But I just don't think it's going to happen with this defense. Nevermind the way Peyton seems to play when it's freezing. We may get by the second round, but New England is going to be extremely tough to beat and I really don't have a good feeling about it.

I hope the Eagles beat the Saints. BIRD BOWL TO DETERMINE THE STRONGEST BIRD TEAM.

Here's how I see the playoffs going.

Wildcard

- Colts (4) beat Chiefs (5) (Luck with game winning TD drive at the death)

- Chargers (6) beat Bengals (3) (Dalton shits the bed)

- Eagles (3) beat Saints (6) (Eagles do enough to slow down Brees)

- Niners (5) beat Packers (4) (Niners just seem to have their number)

Division

Chargers (6) beat Broncos (1) (History repeats itself for "Mr. One and Done" Peyton Manning)

Patriots (2) beat Colts (4) (A tight defensive game that the Patriots win with a late FG)

Seahawks (1) beat Niners (5) (Seahawks fight back from an early deficit to knock off their divisional rivals)

Eagles (3) beat Panthers (2) (Eagles offense takes advantage of over-aggressive Panthers D)

Conference

Patriots (2) beat Chargers (6) (Because the Chargers can't go to the Super Bowl, right?)

Seahawks (1) beat Eagles (3) (The Eagles run ends with a Nick Foles nightmare)

Super Bowl

Seahawks (1) beat Patriots (2) (Carroll beats his old team handily as the Seahawks expose Belichick's smoke and mirrors)

Chargers winning twice?! Carolina losing to Philly?! I haven't seen picks that bad since Denard Robinson last threw a ball for Michigan.

As an Eagles fan, I really can't believe you guys are picking us over the Panthers. I can see us beating the Saints...they've sucked away from the Super Dome, averaging 18 points opposed to over 30 at home. But I see Cam giving us nightmares with how he can run the ball. I do see us beating the Saints, but losing to the Panthers

Saints are ready to get a second wind.

Saints vs Broncos Super Bowl. WATCH IT HAPPEN.

But it'll probably be Seahawks vs Broncos.

Ugh another late game for the Eagles (02.30 AM local time) but at least it's on a Saturday so I can sleep in the next day, unlike today.

Really happy the Eagles won last night but Foles looks terrible under pressure and the O-Line was weak for a good portion of the game so yeah, not expecting anything from the playoffs.

Playoff victories since 1997: Cowboys, 1. Jaguars, 3. Just throwing that out there. That's like Habs fans still celebrating Stanley Cups from 30 years ago. Irrelevant.

But man, Boykin has been so clutch all season. I've been chirping on Twitter about him having a big role in the team's success since the preseason, and the coaching staff showed trust in him putting him one-on-one with Dez in some situations. His game-ending INT was a beauty.

The penalty for delay of game was a shitty call, but it didn't effect the outcome since Dallas scored anyway.

Is there any color commentator worse than Collinsworth? Besides praising McCoy, he really sounded like he had money on the Cowboys.

"History is irrelevant, now look at this statistic that uses a date specifically chosen to use history to back up my point!"

That 5 Super Bowls comment was addressed specifically to Eagles fans. It's not something I bring up very often, but it's completely ridiculous that Eagles fans are going to talk about another team not showing up in a clutch situation. You've got nothing to crow about, your team chokes just as much and usually on bigger stages, but your owner is less of a clown so you don't get catch any of the flak.

Only time it's silly to celebrate your history is when you weren't there to experience it. Maxx was alive for 3 Super Bowls, he's had it much better than fans of nearly every other team supported on here. Even if the past 15 years have been one long stretch of being decidedly average. I would take the ups and downs of that any day over the agony of being the drizzling shits for a decade like Cleveland, Jacksonville, and Oakland.

We've been to the playoffs a couple of times in the last decade and have won the same amount of playoff games as the Cowboys over that time! It's only the last few years (since the Gabbert disaster) that the Jags have been awful and that seems to be changing now with a good young HC and GM, though obviously time will tell.

It's just a crazy stat that I saw someone tweet yesterday. Cowboys fans like to talk about their Super Bowls, but they've been irrelevant since before Y2K.

It's the same thing I hate about the Flyers. I'm a huge fan, but I hate when people my age talk about Stanley Cups that were 20 years before they were born. I try even not to talk about the Eagles success under Reid and McNabb, because at this point, it's irrelevant.

So, should Minnesota go after Shananhan? Great coach for a running game and you've got one of the best RBs of all time. If they're keeping Peterson, they should try to maximize what they have rather than starting to totally rebuild.

Shanahan thinks he's a lot better than he actually is. If I was leading a coaching search for any team right now, I'd be looking for a fresh take. A lot of recent coaching success has been on guys doing their first HC job - the Harbaughs, McCarthy, Smith (although it's a rough year for him this year), Kelly, etc.

Sure there's also Carroll, Fox and Reid, but I'd look to someone like Bill O'Brien before Shanahan, who coasted to two Super Bowls on Dan Reeves' teams, and hasn't won a thing since. He's done more harm than good to Washington (although the front office deserves blame on that, too), and has a weird insistence that his son is a competent OC.

Um, well, not exactly, as he took over the job in Denver for Wade Phillips, not Reeves. And as far as it being Dan Reeve's team, Shanahan was the one calling the plays for most of Reeve's tenure with the Broncos. And while his post season success wasn't quite the same after Elway's retirement, he did rebuild the team and almost took them to another Super Bowl.

As far as the damage done to Washington, BRUCE FRICKEN ALLEN.
