Default NFL pick time

Wow, did the Steelers ever luck out big time on the weekend.......just the same they are moving on. Other then how close that game was Alt, Pats and Phillie were the better teams and deserved to move on.

The match ups are in for next weeks championship games, so who you picking?
Atlanta or Philadelphia
New England or Pittsburgh

New England over Pitt
Why, Big Ben has been playing like a rookie for the past 7-8 games. NE will eat him alive.

Philly over Atl-
Why, Vick is afraid of Brian Dawkins. He said that Dawk is the hardest hitter in the NFL he was leved by him in thier last meeting.

+++ McNabb is the best QB in the NFL.
Peyton stinks in the big game, Culpepper self destructs, Brady can't put up the same numbers, nor is he a running threat.

Pitt & Philly- an all Penn Bowl.

BTW- Pitt was not lucky, you don't need luck when you play the J-E-T-S, you just wait for them to self-destruct.

After watching yesterdays games....I gotta say that it will be New England versus Philly in the Super bowl. I think as good as he is for a rookie.... Rotherburger will cough it up at some key times next week. Pitt has a great D and is the only reason they won yesterday. They will have a hard time with the running backs of NE...imho

The jury is still out on Atlanta(who I would love to see get in the SB) but I don't think they will be there.

I have to agree with you SIM's, it is a tall order to beat Philly. Philly did look pretty crisp. Mentally I think they are in great shape as well - they did rest and heal their top players these past few weeks; but I will be rotting for the Falcons.

I think the Jets gave the Steelers a big time wake up call. I can easily see the Steelers playing ball in Feb.

It's the eagles time. Vick will not be able to run wild on bad winter field. Iggles have 4 big time hitters in Trotter, Dawkins, Lewis and Kearse. On the other side of the ball, #5 hasn't even had to run yet. Birds have been winning at 80% speed. Philly in a lock

Pats looked super against colts, they gave manning fits. What will they do to the rookie?

Two best coaches in game will lead their teams to SB. My heart says Eagles.

If McNabb plays like McNabb can, I agree, eagles over the falcons. I based my earlier pick on the recent games.

All the pressure is on the Eagles...4 years in a row to the NFC Championship game...still haven't gotten over the hump.

No one is giving the Falcons much of a chance, but thats fine...less pressure that way.

In the AFC, we find out this weekend that Rothlisberger truly is a mortal...

Patriots and Falcons in Jacksonville!

While I would like to see ATL v NE I think it will end up being Philly v NE and should be a great garme.

Did I hear snow for Pittsburgh next Sunday?



The "Perfect Storm" heads for Pittsburgh!

But the real question is: Does it snow in Jacksonville?

I've been a Steelers fan since the late 70's. We have suffered some critical loses in the years but this year I can say the Steelers defense is great! We just need the offense to step up and make plays.


The Steelers should have lost last week....but they didn't. I think they will handle New England like they did on Halloween weekend. We killed them and Ben looked like a pro.

Your right! They did kill NE on Halloween! Pitt never allowed the Pats to get going that day.I can't understand why the Pats are a 3 point pick in this game? That's why many of us Pats fans were kinda wishing they meet up in the playoffs. Not to make an excuse BUT....The Pats were without RB Corey Dillon and It was the 1st game without Ty Law while several others were playing hurt.Since that Halloween fiasco the DB's have, dispite having a patchwork make up, come together. They did a pretty good job against Payton"Cut that meat" Manning allowing no TD's.

Remember the last playoff game with Pitt and NE ? Everyone in the "Steel" city was making plans for the Superbowl while The Patriots won the game 27-17! You remember....Tom Brady gets hurt and Drew Bledsoe comes off the bench and tosses a critical TD pass!

Well.... since that game the Pats are two Superbowls richer and now it's back to Pitt where it all started.Keep those terrible towels handy,They'll be useful after the game is over!

J - Pittsburg's fumes must be getting to you.

How can they not be favored? Yes they lost to the Steelers this fall but the Pats:

1. Are defending SB champs
2. Just made the vaunted Colts with the NFL MVP at the helm look silly.
3. The Steelers ESCAPED from the Jets last week. (Don't gimme no guff about luck having nothing to do with it. Crossbar is LUCK)
4. Corey Dillion is back in the line-up this time. He is pretty good.

Gotta handicap this one for the Pats.

Lastly, YES I am a rabid New England fam. I will be tuning in to not only watch the Pats march toward their third date with destiny, but also to watch Cowers head explode. Any Sunday now....any Sunday...

J,

Whoops...reading too fast. Misunderstood the tenor of your post. Pats by 7 in regulation.

True that was the out come, but IMO Manning wasn't on his game. I've watched enough Colts this year to see that Manning does have his off games - to many of them IMO. It was for that reason I didn't pick the Colts over the Pats. He's just to up and down or hot and cold right now and it showed last Sunday. You give Manning a few more years to blossom and he will be putting this past season to shame. And if the Colts can put together a defense..........can you say dynasty.

I'm not taking anything away from the Pats, but they only put 20 points on the board against a team that is known for a weak defense. If Manning was on his game, the Colts would have put at least 35 points up and the my friends would have been the end of the Pats for the season. So along with the Steelers, I feel the Pats got lucky too.

Sure wished I had the chance to watch more Falcon's games this year - they played one hell-of-a game last Saturday against the Rams. Here I was hoping that the Chargers were going to be the Cinderella team this year.......
