I'm a 9ers fan, but I think Manningham's injury is gonna effect the O big time. I still think they can pull it off at home. Seattle/Atlanta could go either way. You could make the argument that no one in the NFC is hotter than the Seahawks right now. I'm gonna favor the home team in that one. Got to go with the Patriots and the Broncos. Man I wanted Indy to be the Ravens. That would have been a great storyline Payton against his old team. Oh well.

I dont see them getting it done vs the Packers. Its a healthy Rodgers & Co that have waited 365 days after being shocked by the Giants....they are on a mission.

They should have been on that mission Game 1 this year. We saw how that went. 9ers will strike gold.

Previously thought the 9ers were the team to beat until they stumbled a bit.  Now I think this game is a toss up.  Ill take GB by 6 27-21

Falcons are do or die, too good not to have, won to snake bit to win.  I say Falcons by 7  21-14

Patriots and Texans will be a repeat of the last game. Unless Arian Foster carries them   
35-7

Denver and Baltimore, Denver by 14  28-14
Not MPP... ONE TASK!  Teach them!  :)

Once Peyton figured it out in Denver and brushed the dust off they were the only team that did not lay an egg late in the season. Well, Seattle also. Not that that means anything.

This is one of the deepest years in recent memory... SF, NE, GB, DENVER, SEATLE... Would you be shocked if any one of those teams won?  ATL has a good shot too.
It's all about having fun.  But losing aint fun!

I dont get it....

They are baking Shanny for playing RGIII and they baked Cutler for riding the cycle a few years ago for the same injury...the two situations are almost parallel.

McElroy wouldn't tell Ryan he had a concussion. Seau had CTE. You think Alex Smith will ever admit to having a concussion again?

What's the deal. These players will play if they can stand up is the deal.

Im sick of this hypocritical slant that is happening. They get paid millions to play...and if they cant preform they will be replaced. Just like any business. I think being the trainer in the NFL just became a really hard job...ethically.

Media take on this is absurd. I bet RG3 thought better of sitting out in fear of losing his job. Cousins played well in his absence. The tough guy mentalility is dangerous for the players. The players can't win and what Harbaugh did hurts the league. So the NFL wants players to be open about concussions but if they are they lose their jobs. Good luck with that.

Jag's just hired a new GM. Who in turn, fired our HC. Everyone saw that coming though.

I heard he also came out and said no Tebow. I was listening to this idiot talk radio guy discussing where Tebow will go. I would think any gm who hired him might get fired. Canada seem like it might be an option.

Tebow is still a Jet so I dont think any team can publicly come right out and say they are interested until March 1 or its considered tampering.

Im sure the Agents are always talking to teams though so Im not sure whats the difference?

No he plainly said he would not be a Jaguar, no matter if the Jet's release him or not.

I am revising one of my predictions.

Broncos 19 Ravens 6.

Its 10 degrees and snowing right now. BRRRRRR flippin' brutal cold. The hits are going to hurt and any nagging injuries are going to be amplified.

Each bench will have heated seats with helmet warmers and the field is heated to 55 degrees but the air will break your fingers off.

Should be fun !
