Re: NFL Pics Week 15 - Bengals Turnover Eagles

Despite losing to the Pats I still think the Texans are the team to beat in the AFC. I have to go with Falcons in the NFC simply because I'm a fan plus they absolutely crushed the Giants. Would love to see the Falcons play more consistently as we really do have one of the best offenses (we have three quality receivers (not including Gonzo ), a decent running game (better when it actually shows up) and was proves this week that we can actually play defense

Colts losing sparks a trend in that they can't seem to beat good teams, their only "good" victory coming against the Packers early on which was before the Packers found their rhythm. meanwhile Cousins proves he can play quarter back as the Skins win sans RG III.

Texans are good, but don't discount the Colts too quick
as they've shown they can win tight games and gave
Houston a tough game.

Pats of course and Denver too. The Broncos proved they
were already a complete team last season and just needed
a productive QB which they now have.

The Falcons are certainly capable of beating anyone,
they just need to be more consistent and if they are
ever hitting on all cylinders look out!

Not sure who is going to dominate the NFC. Lots of season
ending injuries have made a lot of good teams iffy now, with
the exception of San Francisco, Atlanta . . . and Seattle. Lots
of 8-6 teams hoping to squeeze into the Wild Card and the Pack
has their Division but aren't rolling too smooth. Yet.

San Francisco and the Packers (when they're playing well) are the teams that scare me as a Falcons fan (them and whoever we have to play in our first play off game ;). Even there though people forget that those three teams that beat us , cardinals, packers, giants, all went on to the super bowl. two went on to win the super bowl.

don't get me wrong about the Colts, they are a good team but good teams are the teams that get beat in the first or second playoff game and I sincerely doing they'll make it to the second round. maybe not the first pending who they have to play. my point is Colts have a winning record but they have had a weak schedule and the good teams they have played, have tended to beat them badly (this last one was their closest all season against good teams (again excluding Green Bay as they were not playing well at the time)).

RG III is still my rookie pick. lot has been said about Luck and I would not at all be upset if he gets picked but the Skins to this point have had a tougher schedule and there hasn't been a game where they have let the other team run away with it, even the Steelers game wasn't a blow out.

Alfred Morris for ROY to make sure the controversy between Wilson/RGIII/Luck isn't too much. Especially if he can gain 200 yards in the next two weeks, putting him around 1500 rushing yds.

You would do well to be nervous of brees. When the playcalling isn't down because of the lack of offensive mastermind Sean Payton he's the best qb in the league. I don't know of any other sport where play calling is such an essential part of the game and to wrongfully strip the new Orleans saints of theirs and for all of you other nfl fans to ride along the Goodell bus has frankly made me sick. None of you are true nfl fans. And to the falcant fan who posted earlier, your team will be exposed come playoff time just like every year. Enjoy Sean Payton not being in the division and yuck it up as you receive a division title cherry picked by the commissioner. I hate you all

I believe this is a much better Atlanta team than in the past.

The Nawlins Bountygate thing is just weird and always has been. There has never needed to be added incentive to CREAM THE QUARTERBACK in the NFL when the opportunities present themselves.... it's always been a given, as long as it's a clean hit. Dirty play has always been handled post game with fines and suspensions.

A few years ago the Dallas Cowboys traveled to Arizona and had their playoff hopes squashed when QB Tony Romo and Pro Bowl punter Mat McBriar were injured on successive plays in overtime. The Cardinals went all the way to the Super Bowl that year.

Texans stumble while the Seahawks, Ravens, Packers & Falcons roll.
Steelers, Saints and Giants are all bumped out of playoff picture
while the Vikings, Cowboys, Redskins & Bears stay in the hunt.

Very disappointed this year. Steelers will bounce back, but it's still frustrating. Now I can pull for the Seahawks and end up watching a Super Bowl I don't really care about.

Skins can get a playoff berth even if they lose. Bears and Vikings both have to drop for that to happen.

RGIIIsus will light up the FedExField sky with his glorious rainbow passes over the outstretched arms of the likes of Claybourn, Carr, etc into the hands of a streaking Robinson, Garcon, Hankerson, or Moss. It shall be glorious. 7th win in a row = playoffs.

Carr and the "new name" defense will pic at least one RG3 pass tomorrow night.
Can Peterson and the Vikings run past the Pack?

Skins are hot right now. I think they'll take it, and even if they don't you can't knock them for the season they've had. They've earned a playoff spot.

I'd say the Vikings would have a chance if the Pack wasn't playing for anything. There's a bye on the line now that SF has stumbled. Losing to the Vikes would also mean a rematch at Lambeau the following week. Probably more doable, but do you really want to give the team you'd play next week that kind of confidence?

The Vikings have ridden Peterson down the stretch to stay in contention and winning in Houston last week showed they have the will to win. So anything is possible. The Cowboys are definitely capable of ending the Redskin's hot streak, but with a defense crippled with injuries they aren't likely to go far in the playoffs if they do win. Washington on the other hand even with their rookie QB and RB are in great shape to do some real damage in the post season.

Bears end Giants playoff hopes while the Texans surrender the AFC #1 seed and home field advantage throughout the playoffs in Indianapolis. Houston outplayed the Colts in the second half with the exception of just 2 big plays; a 101 yd kickoff return after taking the lead and giving up a 70 yd TD on a third & 24. Broncos beat the Chiefs and they've got home field all the way to the Super Bowl and the Texans finishing 1-3 now have to play a Wild Card game.

Tennessee scored 28 points against Jacksonville in just a couple minutes without their offense even coming on the field. Vikings win and they're in, a Packer victory lets the Bears in.
