Alright, i'll start. The season is all but over. We know who's in, and Tennessee is a Dallas arse kicking away from home field advantage. Here's my bold prediction:
Tennesse over Minnesota. It's on grass, in Tampa, the Titans Defense & power offense should prevail.I'm also not convinced the Giants are THAT good.

Teams i'm pulling for: New Orleans & Baltimore.

Let's see.


I hate Oakland.
I hate Denver.
I hate Miami.
I don't like Baltimore.
I don't like Tenn.

The Colts are OK because Manning is a class guy.


I hate St.Lous.
I hate Minnesota.
I don't like Philadelphia.
i don't like Tampa Bay.
I don't like New York.
I don't like New Orleans.

So I guess it is only the Colts that I sympatize with but one team won't cut it. As I ponder a little bit longer, I love only the Chiefs and HATE all the others. **** them all. :mad:

Hard year to pick, as there are no clear run-away favorites. In the AFC, its hard to pick against the Titans, but I like the way Baltimore is playing. I have no respect for Miami or Denver, Indy is too inconsistent, and I don't think Oakland could hang with either Tennessee or Baltimore.

AFC Pick: Baltimore (tough call over Tennesee, but what the hell)

In the NFC, my early favorite was Minnesota, but they are currently reeling from a three game skid. Their defense will kill them in the end. I still don't know where the hell the Giants or Philly came from, and don't think they have what it takes to advance. New Orleans' offense will kill them. That leaves St. Louis and Tampa. I don't think Tampa will beat St. Louis twice.

NFC Pick: St. Louis

Superbowl Pick: Warner is getting back in the groove, and the St. Louis offense is starting to look like last year. Despite their sh!tty defense, I look for the Rams to sweep up from the depths and win it all, again.

Ravens over the Giants

Ravens over the Rams.

12-26-2000, 08:26 AM
Titans over the Rams

I'm praying the Saints beat the Rams this weekend. I like the Saints but I think Tampa is the only team that can go into NY and beat the Giants (since they have home field throughout). Both are very physical teams and the weather is going to suck.

I'll take the Ravens or Titans in the AFC.

Tenn over the Giants.

cold weather will stop the dome and warm weather nfc teams...baltimore's O won't hang with Tenn.

I'd like to see NO or Phi. sneak in...I'm pulling for the underdogs this year...as ususal.

Baltimore over New Orleans or Tampa.

Not because I like the teams, nor do I think they will win, necessarily.

They are the only three teams in the playoffs that have never been to a SuperBowl, and they deserve a chance.

Honestly though: Tenn over St. Louis due to superior coaching and big-game experience.

If the Rams beat the Saints, the Rams would then have to play the Giants in NY. I don't see the Rams winning that one.

The chance of the Rams getting back to the Superbowl are very slim.

12-26-2000, 12:20 PM
Do you think Kerry Collins has what it takes to lead his team to the SB? Not a rip, just wondering. :)

BTW, I hate the f*cking Rams. Me picking them assures they will get nowhere close! :D

Rams went 4-6 down the stretch. It will be tough to reverse that trend on the road in three sudden-death games. I don't have my picks yet - can I give them in a few weeks?

12-26-2000, 01:04 PM
Funny no one is picking the Raiduhs.

Doesn't look like even UD wants to jinx them.

12-26-2000, 01:25 PM
After reading mlyonsd's post, I would like to revise my pick:

Raiders or Broncos vs. Rams or Eagles

~~Assuring those team won't win. http://www.chiefsplanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Just gotta get in my digs. Of the 12 teams in the playoffs, 7 [Miami, Baltimore, Tennessee, Philadelphia, Tampa Bay, New York Giants, and New Orleans] are teams where the D far outshadows the O. Further, I don't have the figures, but it appears that by-and-large the running game outshadows the passing game.
Kinda puts the debates between 'open-up the O' and 'concentrate of rebuilding the D' we had LAST January in persepctive, no?

Mark M, If the Giants get to the superbowl, it will be because of their defense and the fact they have homefield advantage throughout not because of Collins. I believe it's hard for domed teams (Rams, Saints, Vikings) to go into a bad weather environment and win. This is especially true if the dome teams win by using a highpowered offense (rams, vikings). I'd say the Bucs and the Eagles have the best chance to beat the Giants in NY. It'll be tough for the Eagles since they have no running game and rely totally on McNabb.

My hope is;

The Saints beat the Rams.
The Bucs beat Philly in Philly.
The Saints beat the Vikings in Minneapolis.
The Bucs beat the Giants in NY.
The Saints host the Bucs for the NFC Championship.

I just don't see anyone beating the Titans, period! In the NFC, since nobody stands out as a solid rounded team, weather factors included, I'll go homer and pick Minnesota. The Rams are the only team I think will beat the Vikings, and they won't get past Giants Stadium. The weak link Viking D could hold down the G-men just enough to squeek by.

Titans 41, Vikes 35
