He won't have to make this decision because the thought of the Giants, as the worst team in the NFC playoffs, making it all the way to the Super Bowl is absolutely ludicrous.

And yes, it was ludicrous in 2007 and it is even more ludicrous this year. Miracles happen but they don't happen twice for the same team in the span of 5 years.

Winning a Super Bowl is about having the talent to compete in the playoffs, and then getting some lucky breaks in games.

That's all it is. The Eagles clearly have had the talent for the past decade but just didn't get lucky breaks. They still have the talent, and will compete in the playoffs the next few years, and chances are that they will eventually get the lucky breaks that teams such as the Giants, Steelers and Saints have had in recent years.

Conversely, a less talented team such as the Giants had alot of lucky breaks go their way to win the Super Bowl and to expect them to get lucky again in a similar fashion would be hard to imagine. There's a greater chance that another team will catch those lucky breaks.

I can't wait for the Giants to win this weekend and you to get out of here so we never have to listen to your ******** ever again.

My Predictions:

Bengals @ Houston
Steelers @ Denver
Atlanta @ Giants
Detroit @ NO

Steelers @ Ravens
Bengals @ Pats
Giants @ Packers
NO @ SF

Ravens @ Pats
Giants @ NO

NO over Ravens in the super bowl.

The Ravens vs Steelers match-up will be epic but they will kill each other. The Pats have the easier road to the Super Bowl having to contend with the Bengals and a beat-up Baltimore team while the Saints play one extra game against tougher opposition, and San Fran will rough them up pretty good.

Just for the record... according to FootballOutsiders.com, the playoff teams are ranked by their DVOA (defense-adjusted value over average) thusly:

1. Green Bay (28.3%)
2. Pittsburgh (23.7%)
3. New Orleans (23.3%)
4. New England (22.5%)
5. Houston (19.4%)
6. San Francisco (19.0%)
7. Baltimore (17.2%)
8. Atlanta (15.5%)
9. Detroit (11.6%)
10. New York (9.0%)
11. Cincinnati (0.5%)
12. Denver (-11.0%)

DVOA is a valuation method that measures defense, offensive, and special teams efficiency and adjusts these measures based on strength of the opponent. It's usually a pretty accurate way to determine the efficiency of an NFL team.

I like it..... how does it account for the Steelers brutal injuries though to Mendenhall, and that gimpy Big Ben?

Also, anyone who wants to enter a pool like this, just like the NCAA Hoops bracketology, send me a PM with your e-mail address and I will send you an entry form..... if you have PayPal ........
Not sure why these pools aren't as popular as NCAA hoops.
Each lasts about a month, but the NFL is more popular then college basketball per the ratings, etc.

Picks due by midnight Friday, and I send a checklist before all the games start Saturday so all can follow along at home as it goes.... chance to put one's $ where their mouth is, and cash-in if they're swami-like.

Okay this is pretty wishful for the most part, but it'd be one of my favorite scenarios. Although I'd love to see the Falcons vs Bengals. But Ryan vs Flacco for the big one to win it all, that'd be so awesome. Plus it'd be awesome to see the Falcons pay Rodgers back!

Got the NFC matchups right in the WC, got the 2 AFC ones wrong. But I am sticking with my original predictions....

Saints, Patriots, Ravens, Packers

Patriots, Packers

I was right for the NFC in the wild card and wrong in the AFC. In the Divisional it was I had the Pats and Ravens, but had the Saints and Pack.

I am sticking with the Patriots as my favorite to win the Super Bowl even tho the best team they beat this year so far was 9-9. That scares me. But I am sticking with them and picking the Giants for the NFC.

PATRIOTS 24, ravens 17
GIANTS 28, 49ers 24

Two good, close games IMHO.
