    So let's hear it first I'll address the patriots

    this can either be a great playoff run or one where we lose outright

    ithink our biggest weaknes is wr by a long shot we have moss and nobody now with a hurt welker

    This weakness won't make Brady distribute the ball better but will increase his incompletions and the te's and rb's won't be enough to compensate

    our hope this year now lies with the running game and therefore how well our o-line can run block
    if they can't were screwed if they can we can make up for the passing game

    unfortunately this yr with no depth at wr, a hurt Brady and a young defense it's not our yr
    moving on I do not like the teams that wimpered into the playoffs, mainly Indy,NO, min, eagles
    and see two teams as having the best chance to win it all being first SD then the boys followed by the jets
    cincinnati , ravens, arz, and pak arnt important if any of them do anything it's GB

    but I see SD vs DAL in sB

    I wouldn't put too much stock into teams that finish strong, and I wouldn't too much stock either into teams that finished lukewarmly as well.

    The Eagles DID finish strong despite the loss last week - they previously had a 6 game win streak, and Reid usually plays better against divisional opponents the 2nd time. Yes - the Cowboys are hot, but again, this isn't the NBA where it's a 7 game series, and you have to favor Andy Reid over Wade Phillips in this situation.

    I wouldn't take anything at face value with last week's Packers vs Cards game - the Cards rested almost all of their starters, while the Pack approached it like they were playing for HFA. The Pack are going to be in for a rude awakening tomorrow evening.

    The Vikings, FYI, are 10-0 in Dome stadiums - as they proved the 2nd half of the year, they can not play outdoors on natural grass in cold freezing weather. Guess what - the next time they'll be playing outdoors will be in Miami(assuming they get there), and the weather is pretty darn warm down there. Otherwise, this team is best suited for warm weather and on turf where they can utilize their speed.

    I agree about New Orleans - they just didn't play well down the stretch, especially after when you played them on 11/30 - they don't tackle well on D, Payton may have showed all his cards on O(even lowly Tampa figured them out), and they lost their best DL Charles Grant with a torn triceps(Grant's numbers may look ugly, but he gets the most respect of all the DL, which opens up opportunities for Will Smith an Cedric Ellis).

    if the pats loose on sunday or next week it will not be because of the WR dept. in 06 they made it to the AFC champ game with Reche Caldwell, as there #1 WR Edelman, is better then any WR they had in 2006


    the pats still have randy moss, it will take teams 2 and 3 guys to stop him the pats have 2 TE's in ben watson, and Chris Baker, and 4 RB's that can catch the ball there are lots of guys for brady to throw to and if brady stops trying to make the ESPN top 10 by throwing up deep ball after deep ball and just takes with the D is giveing him this team can go as far as they want to


    in 2006 the D was not any better then it is now i think it was worst because of injury the pats will go as far brady wants to take them it's all on he's back


    thats my take on the pats as far as the rest of the playoff teams go


    IMO the cowboys and jets are the only 2 teams in the playoffs that have big time D's i think the jets will beat cincy but loose to the colts


    i think it will be the colts and san diego in the AFC champ game with san diego going to the SB in the AFC

    in the NFC i think the eagels will beat the boys and play saints

    the packers will beat the cards and play vikings

    and i have the saints and vikings playing in the NFC chmp game with the saints winning it all

    The difference between now and 06 is that our opponents now are a lot stronger

    And Brady spread the ball around to 7-9 targets a game. The TE's almost never factor into a game plan anymore.

    SD is overated. They can't run, they can't stop the run or the pass for that matter. They will not make it to the SB. They can throw it really well though.

    The 2006 Chargers were better than the current 2009 Chargers.
