Woo hoo! Pumped up for the next 4 games. My brain says Pittsburgh and heart with Baltimore. I'd like Green Bay to beat Atlanta. Want Chicago over (yawn) Seattle. And Patriots over NY... Hope the games are close and well played. Best football weekend of the year. Any predictions?

Just to throw in my own "opinions", I think the Steelers are going to win this contest, and just because they have everybody working again and are at home. Turnovers and special teams might change that. I don't know about GB and the Falcons, but for some reason I do think the Pack is going to prevail, it might be because of their "new-found" running game they didn't have last time the played the Falcons.

As much as I dislike the idea, I wouldn't be surprised if the Seahawks show up better than people expect them to. Don't ask me why, might be because so many pundits made such a big deal of how they got in the playoffs and whether they deserved to be there. Might give them the "underdog" attitude that is an intangible but sometimes awesome advantage when the game is played.

The Jets have two chances in Foxboro, slim and none. If the Pats loose at home to the Jets, I will be speechless.

And there it is. Pittsburgh. What a great game. Better than MLB, NBA, NHL, NASCAR, in my humble.

Neither game played out as I expected. Expected Pittsburg to win, but not an ugly high score game. No way I thought GB would trounce Atlanta.

Yupper, I was surprised at the killer score the Pack managed to put up in Atlanta. The Falcons weren't even in the game by the half time break. They didn't adjust well in the locker room and just kept getting walked on. Sure quited down the crowd.

I expect Chicago to win, but they have lost to Seattle this year. They are both different teams at this meeting though, but stranger things have happened. If they take the 'hawks for granted, they could be rudely surprised.
Happy Trails,
Clint.

I really hate Pittsburg! GRRR

I'm getting ready to watch the Jets-Pats game. I can't see the Jets taking this one, but one can only hope.

Well, I watched in disbelief as the Pats turned in one of the least effective offensive games in their history. I said I would be speechless if they lost, so I'll shut-up.
Happy Trails,
Clint.

Not to get too far off subject, but I think the Lions are on the rebound and if they weren't in such a "tough" division they could be even better. But hey, the Vikings are going to be in their place next year I think, bottom of the heap. They don't have a "francise QB" in the mix to go with the rest of their talent like the Lions, Bears, and Packers do.
Happy Trails,
Clint.

Well, I bet Rex Ryan has happy feet today... Seeings how I just bought a Pittsburgh shirt, I guess I'll be cheering for them. Ben takes a lot of licking and keeps on ticking. See that broken nose the other game? I'd have been like " I have a broken nose. Send somebody else in." .
