NFL Playoffs

well, well, well, here we are, that time again!

We had a lot of trash talkers here at the start of the NFL season. What do we have now?

I remember some cocky Cowboy fans, Greenbay fans, Bronco fans (well Pale was never cocky to be fair) etc.


Who is still here?

Well, this Steeler fan is!

Lets go Steelers!

Anyone?

My Sti'llers could beat your Sti'llers.

This year it's one for the other hand!

Actually I think the Steelers need to play a LOT better than they have been if they want to make it to the Super Bowl. Maybe not necessarily against the Chargers this week, but the Ravens/Titans will put up a fight.

I'm a die-hard Eagles fan and it was fantastic what we did to Dallas two weeks ago. I'm optimistic about our chances but not unrealistic and I wouldn't be heartbroken if they lost (like they did in the Super Bowl.) My expectations weren't that high after the game they tied so even getting into the playoffs was a gift. Plus everyone around Philly is still buzzing over the World Series so if the Eagles lose it won't be as bad as years past.

I would love to see a Stillers/Iggles Super Bowl. That's what my heart says. My head says Carolina/Steelers.

24-24 Record for Shannahan. Good time for him to go. I'll blame this season on injuries, not our colander defense.

Poor Miami. Thanatosis had a great season, but turnovers cost them in the end. At least they keep the Tuna seasoned fins.

As much as Pitt has a chance this year, I'm rooting for Fisher in the AFC this time.

You sound absolutely convinced of an Eagles victory in the Super Bowl. Pathetic. At least when the Cowboys do show up, we intend to play. No up-front expectations lowering from this side.

I was guaranteed that the crygirls would be in the playoffs . . .opps I guess coach forgot who their qb is . .

Steelers will have to play a hell of a lot better than they have been, but I think they will, and we should see them going for lefty!

A typical Dallas fan who can't read. Did you not see where I said I think Carolina will make it to the SB?

Considering Dallas hasn't won a playoff game since 1996 I'm wondering when they did show up? You don't have to lower your expectations when they are already at the bottom.

Good luck next year too with your cancerous WR, choking QB, and bumbling coach.

It may be year of the Titans but to me that franchise is a perpetual runner-up franchise going back to the Oiler days.

Like I said, the Titans are a perpetual second best team.

With the way the Cardinals and the Eagles are surging, I think the upcoming NFC title game may prove to be quite a contest. As for the AFC, I really anticipate that the Steelers are going to be headed to Tampa Bay.

They shouldn't have been playing the last two weeks either, but we took care of that by firing our coach.

Can you pummel Baltimore, please?

From a TV ratings POV, would Pittsburgh/Phoenix be the best game?

I think so. It's the only situation in the current picture where you'll have an east vs. west match up. If Philadelphia snags the NFC championship, it's pretty much an east coast contest.

We saw, the Steelers won, and now going to the SuberBowl.

A team with the hardest sch. in NFL history. Dropped a few (4) won two great Playoff games, hmmm! I like their chances!
