  1. The season has come to an end, and now we have the final 12 teams that will be competing for the Superbowl

    Saturday, January 5th, 4:30 EST
    The (10-6) Cincinnati Bengals vs the (12-4) Houston Texans. The Texans who had the inside track at the #1 seed and home-field through out, dropped all the way to the 3rd seed. They take on a team who got hot the second half of the year.

    Prediction - Bengals

    Saturday, January 5th, 8:00 EST
    The (10-6) Minnesota Vikings play a rematch of last weeks game against the (11-5) Green Bay Packers. The Vikings and Adrian Peterson look to take advantage of their success in week 17 and carry the momentum into Lambeau. Christian Ponder has been inconsistent throughout the year. Can the Vikings control the ball long enough to keep Rodgers off the field?

    Prediction - Green Bay Packers

    Sunday, Janurary 6th, 1:00 EST
    (11-5) Indinapolis Colts and Head Coach Chuck Pagano travel to (10-6) Baltimore Ravens. The colts have been playing inspirational ball for much of the year, Pagano has battled with Leukemia throughout the year. They seem to be the most unified team in the playoffs. The Baltimore Ravens started off hot and let their lead slip toward the end of the year. The Ravens will have a returning Ray Lewis and that might send the Colts home after a successful Rookie year by Andrew Luck

    Prediction - Baltimore Ravens

    Sunday, January 6th, 4:30 EST
    The (11-5) Seattle Seahawks vs (10-6) Washington Redskins. This game pairs two rookie quarterbacks against one another. Both teams have a stellar running game. Alfred Morris has been a great drafting decision by GM Dan Synder. Marshawn Lynch is a beast though and it will be up to what defense can stop the running game. Will RG3 be 100%?

    Prediction - Seattle Seahawks
  2. I'm with you on the first two, but I think Colts and Redskins will go over :obama:
  3. I took the Seahawks based solely on the fact that RG3 Isn't 100%
  4. Packers,Skins,Ravens, and Texans!
  5. Why do you have those teams @"Respect Gohan6425"
  6. Bengals because the texans are playing terribly right now.

    Packers, they won't lose to the Vikings at Home in the January.

    Redskins, Seattle is a whole different team on the road...if this was in Seattle I would have them but they have played a whole lot worse on the road this season.

    Ravens, this is the hardest one for me. Colts might play out of there minds for their head coach, but I think ravens are the better team.
  7. I like these picks. We agree on everything but the seattle game. Do you think Matt Ryan gets his first playoff win this year? I personally think they might be in trouble.
  8. BECAUSE :pipebomb:!!! ! ! ! !!!!!!!!!

    Should be a great weekend of football.
  9. b/c though are the team that i think will win.
  10. You going with Minny by 10?
  11. #12 is about to move closer to the next ring. Dont be so butthurt, im sure Eli likes football just as much from his couch, since it was all about his payday, anyway.

  12. Yeah, I think he did get a raise after his second ring :true:
  13. Dude is going to be Brauny style, count on it. Signed for Career for a more affordable price.

  14. :pipebomb:

    Seriously though, Rodgers is the better QB.
  15. Rings in Football are overrated and shouldn't determine a player's greatness. This isn't Basketball where one or two guys can carry an entire team.

    Dan Marino > > > most Qbs with rings
  16. All that said and all I have to say is 2 to 1 and I Win and you know that true because it's all about rings. Ask Dan Marino. NOow deth that is how you drop a fucking :pipebomb: Get at me son
  17. Dan Marino gets butt hurt everytime someone says he doens't have a ring.
  18. Dan Marino is still top 3 all time QB's to me brother. :hogan:

    Wont mean shit if he wins just a few more games....what will you say then?
  19. Montana, Young, Marino. Top 3, all time. Case closed, end story :pipebomb:
  20. I will then say Rodgers is better. You have my word.
