Journal: NFL 2006: Super Bowl 7

Journal by NFLFan

I like the Colts. I had to get that out right away. I don't know if the Super Bowl can match, let alone exceed, the games from the conference championships.
The Bears just playing an awesome style of defense, tearing the Saints apart (and the television audience being tortured by Joe Buck and Troy Aikman). I got sort of sleepy hearing about that whole dome team winning in the cold is a hoax, the Bears were just more ready to play and so on. I think at least one of those fumbles was related to the weather.

And then there was the Patriots, they jumped out to a quick 18 point lead that re-assured everybody, and frustrated many, that things were the same. Only that was the first half! The second half had the greatest coach ever along with the greatest big game quarterback ever giving away that 18 point lead!!! Yes that is a record. Don't look now but the Patriots have not beaten the Colts in 2 solid years and Brady v. Manning in the playoffs has comedown to home field advantage. So maybe, the Patriots cannot beat the Colts anymore!!!

So why do I like the Colts? Well, everybody knows what Indianapolis did to Baltimore. While Chicago has a very good defense, and they are very good, but they are more simple and less scary than the defense the Ravens were fielding at the end of the year. The Bears is not the kind of team that gives the Colts problems. Peyton Manning understands the 4-3 defense better than any other quarterback alive. The only thing that is bothering me is that these teams have had 2 weeks off to think about things and only practice. I want to think that the layoff will hurt the more physical Bears more but I keep having flashbacks to the Steelers beating up the Colts early after the Colts had that 2 week off last year.

So come Sunday, sit back and enjoy the game.

Too busy and too sick to do this thing like I should. I feel really bad about that. I will try to do a lot of Super Bowl related posts.

New Orleans at Chicago 3:00
I like the Saints. Chicago is probably the better team in a lot of ways but I think the Saints will just put up more points than the Bears today. A team with a good defense and so-so offense against a team with a so-so defense and good offense? We saw what happened in Baltimore.

New England at Indianapolis 6:30
Oh, I like the Colts. I have picked the Colts every playoff game so why stop now? With the Patriots tarnishing their own image every week it is getting hard to like them, I would still pick them if I thought they would win though. This is the year when Peyton bloodies the bully's lip when it matters!

Seattle at Chicago 1:00
I like the Bears. Seattle lucked out to get this far; if Dallas was a more focused team they would be playing this week. It does not matter who won during wild card weekend in the NFC. Hope the fans are supportive of Grossman.

New England at San Diego 4:30
I like he Chargers. All week I have heard how the Chargers were so unlucky to draw the Patriots and at the same time the Patriots are trying to paint themselves as underdogs. The only concern I have with the Chargers is with the lack of experience Philip Rivers has.

This is the time of the year that every football fan loves. The good games will probably be on Saturday-- those games could go either way. I am more confident in my picks for the Sunday games but those are divisional grudge matches! So I expect at least 2 great games this weekend.

I still need to tally my results for the season. I really want to but I have been too busy. I think I can get around to it sometime this weekend.

I like the Cowboys. Both of these teams are struggling but it is the injuries to the Seattle defense that have me worried.

Sunday, Jan. 7
N.Y. Jets at New England 1:00 pm
I like the Patriots. I would love to pick the Jets here but I just do not see it happening. The Patriots have the swagger alone to get through a wild card game.

Well it is the last week of the regular season. I hate this week because the league as a whole is at its most unpredictable. Half the teams go home after this week. Some teams with a chance to stay around will fold and some teams that are already finished will show surprising fight. How long will the first team units play?

Not surprisingly, I have yet to figure out my win-loss record. Too busy with holiday stuff. I will have it done for next week. Speaking of the holidays, I hope 2007 serves everyone with health and happiness.

Wow, Week 16 already! I still need to tally up my season standing, I will eventually. The AFC is still the stronger conference. The Bears along with maybe the Cowboys and Saints appear to be the only contenders in the NFC and they all have flaws. The Patriots only have one player going to the Pro Bowl. And so much more.

Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Christmas, or whatever holiday you celebrate, and that all your wishes come true.

I have been thinking a lot lately about trying to pick a Super Bowl winner. I have narrowed the teams down to these four: Colts, Chargers, Cowboys, and Bears. Baltimore is too inconsistent. I believe that New England has only won one game against a team with a winning record (Chicago) and do not think they could win 4 playoff games.

Last week I was 12-4 :)

Jacksonville at Houston 1:00 p.m.
I like the Jaguars. Just dislike the Texans.

New England at Buffalo 1:00 p.m.
I like the Patriots. Buffalo coult not even beat the Lions...

Philadelphia at Tampa Bay 1:00 p.m.
I like the Eagles. The Bucs traded Booger!

Pittsburgh at Atlanta 1:00 p.m.
I like the Steelers. Two enigmatic teams. The Steelers looked better than the Falcons last week.

San Diego at Kansas City 1:00 p.m.
I like the Chargers. How could I pick the Chiefs after last week?

Denver at Cleveland 4:05 p.m.
I like the Broncos. What can I say about Clevend? I want to go to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame some day.

Arizona at Oakland 4:15 p.m.
I like the Cardinals. I know a lot of people think the Cardinals will be demoralized after that Chicago game but I disagree.

Minnesota at Seattle 4:15 p.m.
I like the Seahawks. Seahawks at home are close to unbeatable.

Washington at Indianapolis 4:15 p.m.
I like the Colts. Everybody seems to be beating the Redskins right now.

Monday, Oct. 23
N.Y. Giants at Dallas 8:30 p.m.
I like the Cowboys. Just a gut pick, no good reason.
