I say Vegas nailed it... Titans v. Giants sounds pretty good.
Titans would have to get past both Mannings to win it all. That would make for some kind of story.

No doubt, especially after everbody had written Kerry Collins off...Chances are he would have to face one of his former teams in the Superbowl (Panthers/Giants)...Would love to see the former Penn State QB win the whold damn thing...Hopefully he proves my Colts vs. Giants prediction wrong...

Pretty sweet lookin' flea flicker for the TD there. Warner was right on the money with that one into double coverage.

Colts v Chargers was a great game. Sproles tore up the Colts. He's an unrestricted free agent after the season. And after this all around performance, he's probably gonna be in high demand.

Yeah it was...
The Colts just couldn't get their ground game going, but the Chargers just really handled them.
If it hadn't been for that crazy play Manning pulled when he caught the db not paying attention, and the Chargers turn overs in the red zone,
the score would have been pretty lop-sided.

Michael Turner made the most out of his opportunities when he was backing up LT...Landed him a 6 year $34.5 million deal with the Falcons...Sproles reminds me alot of Brian Westbrook...

Yea, he seems to be a smaller, quicker version of Brian Westbrook. It will just be a question of whether his body can endure a full season as an every down RB. I'm sure there will be teams willing to gamble on that issue.

I'm picking the Ravens over Titans. And The Cardinals over Panthers. I know, they are both underdogs. But Warner for the Cards has had a great season passing, and after seeing the Ravens devastate the Dolphins offense last week, I gotta go with the Ravens in their game.

They're both on the road too. I'm going with the homers.
Plus, the Cards do NOT travel very well. But that's why there's a scoreboard I guess.

Yea, the Cards are a terrible road team. Especially when visiting the East coast. I just think maybe Warner has some magic left in that arm. Plus he has 3 1,000yard receivers to throw to. And Edge James looked good last week. But it's still a coin toss I guess.

Looks like somebody forgot to tell the Cardinals that they have no shot on the road against the Panthers...27-7 Cards at the half...Fitz is playing out of his mind, completely uncoverable right now...

It's like the extra week off hurt both the Titans and the Panthers, got 'em out of rhythm I guess.
Even with Bloden out, The Cards gave 'em Fitz.
I hope Blitzburg and the G-Men were paying attention.

Are you guys watching the Giants game? My goodness way to blow it. Every home team lost this weekend. So many fans get let down this year at the payoff games.

Nice to see the running game kick into gear. O-line looked very good for a change. Def dominant as usual.
Matchup with the Ravens should be a brutal battle.

Picking Steelers over the Ravens. And Eagles over the Cards. Steelers v Eagles would be a pretty good Super Bowl IMO.

I think the Cards are going to beat the Eagles. However, I think that the winner of the steelers/ravens will win it all.


oh, and by the way, GO LIONS!

I think if the Steelers make it to the Super Bowl, they'll win. Stout defense and an always dangerous offense. They just gotta get past the Ravens.

Rootin' for Warner and company in the SuperBowl here. Hopefully the O-Line can keep Blitzburg in check for 4 full quarters...

That was quite an athletic return by ol' Palomino...but then Fitzgerald is pretty athletic, too. Should make for another good matchup. Any word on the Ravens' injured running back?

Ravens' McGahee home, complete recovery expected

By DAVID GINSBURG – 1 hour ago

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) — Ravens running back Willis McGahee is expected to make a "complete recovery" from a fierce helmet-to-helmet hit in the AFC championship game that saw him carted off the field.

McGahee returned to his Baltimore home Monday after spending the night in a Pittsburgh hospital recovering from Sunday's collision with Steelers safety Ryan Clark.

The play occurred in the fourth quarter of Pittsburgh's 23-14 victory, and McGahee was carted from the field on a stretcher.

"It is expected that Willis will have a complete recovery from the head and neck injuries he suffered last night," Ravens spokesman Kevin Byrne said Monday.

Although McGahee had significant neck pain, he had movement in his arms and legs after the hit. He was taken to UPMC Presbyterian Hospital and held overnight for observation. He was released early Monday morning and back home by early afternoon.
