Best time of the year, wish our texans were part of it...but we will have to wait another year... but here we go what are your 2007 playoff predictions? AFC Wild Card Jets at Patriots- Jets proved earlier this season that they can win at Foxboro so this isn't as easy as you think it is for the Patriots. However Patriots are at full strength and it is the playoffs and yes Tom Brady and Belichick still are in New England. This will be a close one, but Patriots have more experience, better running game, better defense. Thats what counts in the playoffs. My Pick: Patriots Who I will be rooting for: Jets Chiefs at Colts- Ahh, rematch from the big showdown a few years back when the Chiefs were on fire and the Colts offense was unstoppable. I think the abscence of Edgerin James this season made the Colts a little more pass heavy which puts their own defense on the field longer, that makes their defense more tired and easier to advanve the ball on. Colts have the worst pass defense I have seen in years and at this point I just don't think Peyton can shoot it out because he won't be on the field long enough, considering his defense is going against the second best running back in the league and one of the best run blocking offensive lines. My Pick: Chiefs Who I will be rooting for: Colts NFC Wild Card Cowboys at Seahawks Yawn... neither of these teams deserve to be in the playoffs, I really wish we could just throw the Bengals, Titans, or Broncos in this spot, but... thats how the system works so we get to watch the spiraling Cowboys come into town to play the lucky Seahawks. Seahawks take this one just because of pure talent. I believe the loss of Steve Hutchinson really hurt this team, and I am disappointed in Holmgren at this point. He didn't do a very good job molding all this talent together. Shaun Alexander has been somewhat exposed, his offensive line deserved that mvp trophy last year, not really him... but don't get me wrong he is a good back...anyways back to the point, Cowboys offensive line is horrible, their defense is above average, they just can't get it together. My Pick: Seahawks Who I will be rooting for: Cowboys Giants at Eagles Eagles deserve to be in this, losing their starting quarterback and still playing some good football. Andy Reid did a great job this season, but not as good of a job as Jim Johnson did with that defense. After watching that defense play I would say they are a top 5 unit in the NFL. Jeff Garcia plays with passion and all the young guys on offense around him do just enough to push them to a victory. They will ride emotion and defense in this win. As for the Giants, its a shame Tiki has go out like this... but I don't people should really blame the Giants, they have key injuries on the offensive line which has hurt manning, both their stellar defensive ends are out, there best linebacker is out... full strength I would say this team could make some noise in the NFC... but they aren't. My Pick: Eagles Who I will be rooting for: Giants (obviously I am a Manning fan) AFC Divisional Round New England at San Diego Wow... this will be a great matchup. Week bye will help the Chargers out, and they have the best player in the NFL and the best pass rusher...but outside that... I see talent... but not enough. Philip Rivers I don't think will pull through when the pressure is on, and that defense is good, but not great. I think Tom Brady will pull this one off because a good patriots offensive line will keep Merriman away, and a good scheme will CONTAIN LT, and they will pull off a close win. My Pick: New England Who I will be rooting for: New England Chiefs at Ravens Kind of lopsided matchup for a regional matchup... would be more interesting if Broncos were in, in my opinion. Ravens defense will make LJ wish he had never played running back. Their offense will torch that defense, and the Ravens will pull this one off with ease. My Pick: Ravens Who I will be rooting for: Ravens NFC Regional Matchups Seattle at Chicago Great defense and a good run game wins you games. Bears will stop Alexander, and have a good rushing attack to pull off a close win against the former NFC champions. My Pick: Bears Who I will be rooting for: Bears Eagles at Saints Here is my upset, many weapons on the offense, a pretty good defense, the Saints look in good position. However I think the Eagles play a championship style of defense, and Jeff Garcia knows how to win... Eagles have been down that road, Saints have not. My Pick: Eagles Who I will be rooting for: Eagles AFC Championship New England at Ravens Tom Brady has been here many times before, but not all of his teamates have. His defense is good but not great like in past, and he doens't have as many weapons like he has in the past, nor the best clutch kicker of all time with him, neither his coordinators. Too much has been stripped of Brady since his last super bowl ring to be able to get another one. The Ravens defense is the best in the league, they have a good rushing attack and a quarterback who has been down that road and knows how to get the job done. Ravens beat the Patriots in this one. My Pick: Ravens Who I will be rooting for: Ravens NFC Championship Eagles at Bears Two good defenses, one mediocre offense, one above average offense. These two teams aren't the greatest, but they know how to get the job done. I think it will come down to Rex Grossman losing it for the Bears. My Pick: Eagles Who I will be Rooting for: Bears SUPER BOWL Eagles VS Ravens Ravens win this one...to show that AFC is superior of NFC. Ravens defense shuts out the Eagle offense, and Ravens offense gets the job done. Ravens are my pick for the super bowl.
