    I totally stole this idea from a TV show.
    For each set of teams:
    1 to date: Good-looking, but one fatal flaw.
    1 to marry: Likely to go all the way.
    1 to dump: Gonna fall flat on their faces in the first game.
    And then leave the last alone. I split it up by seeding just because that makes sense in my insomniac haze.

    Wild Card Teams:
    Jets
    Ravens
    Eagles
    Packers

    Division Winners:
    Cardinals
    Cowboys
    Bengals
    Patriots

    First-Round Bye:
    Colts
    Chargers
    Saints
    Vikings

    Wild Card Teams:
    Jets - Dump: I can't be convinced when the last meaningful game they won against a that finished over .500 was the Pats in week 2.
    Ravens
    Eagles - Date: They may be on a hot streak, but 0-4 against 10-win teams.
    Packers - Marry: A tough one, but it looks like these guys have great balance. Plus, worst loss is only 12 points to a hot Favre team.

    Division Winners:
    Cardinals
    Cowboys - Marry: I know, you're saying what?!, but when you hold your opponents to 0 points in the last 2 games, one of which being against the Eagles... you're doing something right.
    Bengals - Dump: When these guys lose, they lose big. And when you're on a cold streak, things could get nasty.
    Patriots - Date: A good team at home, but 1-6 on the road? C'mon man...

    First-Round Bye:
    Colts
    Chargers - Marry: Hottest team in the NFL. Only possible problem is Baltimore, who's beaten them once at home already.
    Saints - Dump: I'm afraid they've given up after the loss to Dallas.
    Vikings - Date: A quick one: Favre's wearing down again.

    I didn't think you could "Marry" more than two since there will only be one team from each conf. to make it to the SB.

    Wild Card Teams:
    Jets - Date : Sanchez is the flaw, the defense is what keeps me coming back
    Ravens - Date : Fatal Flaw is probably the secondary. Where for art though Ed Reed
    Eagles - Dump : Teams coming in cold are hard to get a fix on. Plus, the Eagles are always good for getting themselves out of the playoffs
    Packers - Marry : Although the O-line looks like crap, Rodgers seems to be making something of it. Defense has been great.

    Division Winners:
    Cardinals - Dump : Not a believer this year. Resting on their laurels for the last few weeks will burn them
    Cowboys - Date : Yeah yeah Cowboys, however Romo has to prove he doesn't choke
    Bengals - Dump : WTF was that shit that I just watched.
    Patriots - Marry : Even with Welker gone you still have Brady2Moss. If I'm going to dump people for bad defense I'll keep the one with the pretty QB

    First-Round Bye:
    Colts - Date : Are you ready to see manningface.jpg? I am.
    Chargers - Marry : They have been beating people with their B squad
    Saints - DUMP : Sorry N.O. but I can't believe.
    Vikings - DUMP : Favre is cool but that defense has been playing patty cake with opponents lately.

    To Sean Payton: "I do."

    *crosses fingers that we find early season form in the playoffs*
