Yeah, put it up on both to see what everyone was thinking.Didnt know this thread was in here as well as VIP.
Again, Im going with New England and Denver to win comfortably.
In the NFC I like Green Bay and john beck to advance to the NFCCG.
This leaves the top QBs in the game to battle it out for a trip to the SB of course.
It also would keep alive my preseason pick of Peyton vs. john beck in the Super Bowl. Both teams earned homefield throughout by having the best records in the league.
Overall those were some decent predictions. I nailed all 4 division winners in the AFC and saw those 4 teams being head and shoulders above the rest. That played out. I shouldve taken the Colts to win a wildcard as that was my instinct the weeks before I posted that thread.
In the NFC I was foolish enough to think Green Bay wouldnt get in. I didnt think they would have a horrible season, I just saw a lot of quality teams in the conference. The Bears folded on me as they usually do. The Giants folded up too. Detroit just plain blows. Only a sucker wouldve taken them to qualify for the playoffs over Green Bay... .
But, what its going to come down to is the best QBs in the league battling it out in the championship games. john beck vs. Rodgers and Peyton vs. Brady. Were in for some great football the next couple of weeks. These are my favorite 2 weekends of football. The divisional round is outstanding with 2 games on back to back days. I think we have the best 4 teams in each conference going at it.
FWIW, Only the NFC East does not have a team left in the fight since Seattle won the battle of wounded knee last week. Ive been saying that division is highly overrated.
I hope we see 4 of them next week. Should be outstanding.
