    Deion Branch signed with Indy. Interesting given the Colts and Pats play this weekend.

    Picks? Let's see. Pats over Indy. Seattle over Saints. Niners over Panthers. Broncos over Chargers. Not very imaginative I know.

    I wish I was as confident about the Pats winning as most people seem to be. I know the Colts are probably the least hard team we could face, in that they don't have much of a running game, when our run defence is weak (and even weaker with Spikes now also on IR) so I guess we get a decent match up in that sense. But then again, they have Luck. The way he's been playing I'd rather face Manning, cause Manning can be game planned against and slowed down. Luck seems to make it up as he goes along sometimes, and that's much harder to do anything against.

    If there's any team in the AFC title race left we can beat, it's the Colts, but I'm not getting my hopes up for it.

    Jeff Ireland and the Dolphins have mutually agreed to part ways.

    Interesting...

    a few years late

    Luck is interesting, he kind of reminds me of young Elway, he seems like the likeliest guy to guide a team to the superbowl and lose 55-10

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say Chargers over Broncos. Call me crazy, but the Chargers just have something going right now that gives me reason to believe they can upset the Broncos. (Plus it's Peyton in a playoff game, so sorry, no confidence there.) I also think the Panthers will beat the niners again. The other two I agree: hawks > saints; pats > colts.
    I can teach you how to play, but I can't fix stupid.

    I ended up going with all the home teams.

    Broncos over Chargers: Thinking the return of Welker and their main run stopper will be the difference.
    Panthers over Niners: The teams are pretty much the same, so going with the home team.
    Patriots over Colts: Belichick is too smart to let T.Y. Hilton run wild again.
    Seahawks over Saints: C-link

    No, you know what? Colts upset the Pats. Why not. It seems the most likely out of all of them.

    I could really see them all winning.

    Whos better in their primes, what you think, Gronk or Graham?

    Last week got 3 correct, 1 wrong because of Bengal losing, pretty embarrassing tho, aren't they like 8-0 at home?

    This week im guessing:

    Seahawk over Saints (it wont be like that stomp again, but if Saint got hit by weather Seahawk most likely to win, and Seahawk at home too)
    Colt over Pats (Feels like Pats doesn't have anything and Luck is going to do better)
    Broncos over Charger (River beats Peyton all day in playoff , but this time Peyton have a different team and he is the best QB in league I think Peyton gonna won)
    49ers over Panthers (nvm 49ers was one of my favorite team and they are more stacked with better playoff experience)

    All-around, definitely Gronk, since we're talking about 'prime' here, as injuries play a big factor. Graham is faster but other than not spending half his career injured, I can't think of anything else Graham can do better. While he does some things just as well as Gronk, Gronk just has a presence about him...the Pats' stats with and without him this season is mind-boggling...he makes great catches, he blocks insanely well which Graham can't do, and the defense has so many guys freaking covering him it often leaves another Pats receiver wide-open, the guy doesn't even need to do anything to be a huge impact. Graham is still awesome, though, I do love watching him make plays. But really, if Gronk stayed healthy all the time and say came around a few years earlier in '07...oh God I could hardly imagine the stats...

    I disagree. I think the Patriots beating the Colts as the safest bet this week.

    Patriots over Colts <- safest bet
    Seahawks over Saints
    Broncos over Chargers
    49ers over Panthers <- Riskiest bet

  13. #3093
    Patriots, Saints, Broncos, Panthers.

    Least sure about Patriots. They seem the most unstable team (or them and the saints).

  14. #3094
    I picked a Broncos/49ers Superbowl at the start of the season so going to stick with it. Otherwise, I'll go with Saints & Colts.

    I made some money from some betting pools with friends/co-workers last week with the Wild Card round, called all the games right but that Colts vs Chiefs was a close one lol.

    Here are my picks for divisional:

    * Means I think they will win

    Broncos VS Chargers* - Welker is back, Broncos are a high octane offense and its in Denver. But San Diego's defense really stepped up last week against a terrible QB and they beat them twice already. Denver's defense hasn't really stopped anybody all year when it had to.

    Colts vs Patriots* - A great game for Andrew Luck last week but I think going to Foxborough against Tom Brady is going to be a tall order for Indy. Their defense is shoddy, the run game is not too impressive and you can't have Luck attempting 40+ passes every game. I think he throws some INTs and the Patriots offense hits high gear.

    Saints* vs Seahawks - A really tough game here, but I just have faith in Drew Brees to redeem NO after that horrible loss a few months back. Also expect Wilson/Offense to cough up the ball a few times.

    49ers vs Panthers* - Again, a really great matchup but I think home field advantage and a stronger D-line will be the difference for the Panthers. It really is up to Cam Newton to convert 3rd downs and keep the ball away from Gore and their throwing RB Kaepernick.

    Jay Gruden is now the HC of the Redskins.

    Yeah, that's an eyebrow raiser. Did NOT have him on my radar as a HC yet. I knew he was highly regarded, but his name hadn't floated about much, especially not in connection with Washington.

    For what it's worth he'll need all the help he can get, BUT at least he's the ideal guy to get RG3 back on track.

    So you aren't factoring in the Saints coughing up the ball a few times?

    We all change, when you think about it. We're all different people all through our lives. And that's okay, that's good, you've got to keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of this. Not one day. I swear. I will always remember when the Doctor was me.

    He needs to make RG3 stfu and just play. Have him Marshawn Lynch his interviews with one sentence answers.

    Was catching up on twitter at work break, sounded like Steve Smith was doubtful, but now PFT has him optimistic. So who knows?

    Oh just read that Percy Harvin is good to go for Sunday. ITS HAPPENING!
