RE: 2016 NFL Playoffs
I actually think the Texans have a pretty good shot. They are quietly hot right now while KC is obviously on a great streak. I will pick KC but don't be surprised by a small upset there.

I think Steelers take care of Cincy. If Dalton was playing it'd be more of a battle and if Dalton had been healthy Cincy would probably be the #1 seed

Seahawks take out Minny. Don't let 11-5 and the NFC North title fool you, Minny is not that good. Way below average offense and a way above average defense. Seattle will win.

Packers @ Redskins. It could be Packers @ Alabama and I wouldn't pick them to win. There are probably 10 + teams that didn't make the playoffs that would beat GB on a neutral field at this point, no joke. Washington by 14 and next year we will see if AR rebounds or if this year was his sudden end. He has been horrific pretty much all season.

KC. This will probably be the best game of the weekend.
Pitt, but I think this one will be close.
Hawks. They picked up their game recently. Don't worry I'm not fooled by 11-5 records in the North. Bears have held that record several times winning the North, only to get bounced out in the first round. They weren't a good team either. No No
I want to pick the Pack, but they are just bad right now. Gotta go w/ the Skins too.

I have been Recessitated a bit, with Jim Tomsula firing .I have been watching the NFL and hear are my thoughts

KC vs Texans, who cares but KC is tough and Texans QB is not good. I am gonna stick with AndyReid and his game manager qb of Alex Smith CHIEF'S

Steelers vs Bengals. Steelers have too much offense, the Bengals Dalton is still injured Steelers

GB vs Skins, ARod will figure this one out , the Skin's Cousin will be exposed. Packers

Seahawks vs Vikings, even Pete Carroll dumb coaching antics will not be allowed to screw this one up .Hawks.

Btw.TB was totally gutless to fire Lovie Smith, that organization is a pure pathetic joke.

I was surprised by his firing too. If anything the team overachieved this year and seems to be setup nicely to improve. On the other hand I was not surprised Chip Kelly was canned. If you make that many stupid personnel decisions and it blows up in your face you deserve to get fired.

Yeah. No love for Lovie in the NFL right now. Maybe he could take his defensive prowess to the Giants organization.

Chief's coach, Andy Reid (Eagles) vs. Texans coach, Bill O'Brien (Penn State) is a sentimental one for me.

Picking Houston.

Steelers

Seahawks

Packers

Chiefs start w/ a bang. A kickoff return that immediately puts 7 pts on the board. 7-0 after 1 period

13-0 KC at the break. Texans can't get anything going on offense.

Pac man Jones and whomever that idiot #55 for the Bengals most likely will cost Marvin Lewis his head coaching job. That's too bad because Cindy is a very talented squad.

Burfict and Pacman are about the only idiots capable of doing what they did at that juncture in the game. That was about the dumbest end to a season as I've seen.

As a Pittsburgher, I enjoyed it. Two 15-yard penalties in the last 30 seconds, when the Steelers are trying to get close enough for a field goal? What's not to like?

An ideal concept, but like you said, it may not be his team much longer.

I'm glad the Pack showed signs of life yesterday. They were absolutely abysmal the last few weeks. Now let's see what they can do w/ the Cards.

RE: 2016 NFL Playoffs
The truth is I was rooting for the Vikings yesterday for a couple reasons:

1. Packers have a better chance against Carolina and
2. Vikings match up better with Arizona than GB does

But with that said if the fierce rival is to lose it's best that they lose in absolutely heartbreaking fashionSmile

As for the games:

Chiefs @ Pats - Still got to go with the Pats. It's Brady vs. Smith and Maclin is hurt.
Steelers @ Denver - Very tough one to call. Pittsburgh is pretty beat up but I assume Brown and Big Ben will go. I will still pick the home team. I have a feeling Manning is going to show up decent for these playoffs and I'd be happy to see them make the SB.

Seahawks @ Panthers - Going with Seattle. Records be damned this time of year when you talk about playoff experience and then analyze both rosters I see a lot of advantages for Seattle. Main advantage for Carolina is HFA but I don't think that will be enough.

Packers @ Cards - Packers offensive line was the difference yesterday. After being dismal most of the year they were great yesterday. Rodgers still doesn't look good, these receivers still aren't dynamic enough and I don't see them beating Arizona. They will need some turnovers and/or Rodgers coming to life again or a couple hundred yards rushing vs. a great defense. I don't see it being 38-8 this time but they will still lose.

However , I wouldn't be surprised if my picks ae 2-2,or 1-3, due to Big Ben'si and Brown injuries.
