In order to keep up with the nature of free, spirited debate, I wanted to place the chat feature at the top of the homepage. This ensures people can come here and share their views on anything they wish and not have it be related to any specific discussion.

NFL Divisional Playoff Weekend

No politics, just sports. We said that we would sometimes write about sports on our blog. This quick post is about the NFL Divisional Playoff games taking place today and tomorrow. Got predictions? I'm rooting for the 49ers, Giants, Broncos and Ravens, but my picks for the winners are:

Saints 34       Niners 16

Patriots 27    Broncos 24 (close, I know. The Pats' D is terrible, and the Broncos can run the ball)

Ravens 21    Texans 17 (Live near Baltimore... GO RAVENS!)

Packers 38    Giants 31

I really hope it's the Ravens at home versus the Broncos for the AFC Championship game, but I doubt that will happen. Everyone have fun. Be safe!


  1. Niners 16 Saints 10
    Patriots 31 Broncos 21
    Ravens 34 Texans 7
    Packers 45 Giants 42

    Shootout in the last game.

    Patriots 38 Ravens 31
    Niners 14 Packers 7 (just like the Chiefs game)

    Niners 22 Patriots 6

  2. Does anyone in their right mind think the Packers are really going to lose? Come on.

    Nice blog, btw!

  3. Saints 34 Niners 28
    Broncos 31 Pats 19
    Ravens 21 Texans 0
    Packers 28 Giants 13

    Anonymous (Jan 14, 2012 09:43 AM) - I do. This is, in my opinion, going to be the best game of the weekend. The Giants defense is starting to remind me of their 2007 (?) Super Bowl run. Pack only beat the Giants by 3 a few weeks back. And, just so you don't think I'm being a 'homer', I'm an Eagles fan!

    Ravens should crush the Texans as Ray Rice (from Rutgers!) has a big day. San Fran just won't be able to hang and Tebowmania comes to an end in Foxboro in a big way (good riddance!)!!!

  6. YES Whatsamattausa! Another agreement... Well, it's a half. Ravens are my team :)

  7. How about this ?
    What candidate would you most like to be stranded on a desert island with and WHY ?
    Which candidate would you be afraid of and why.
    Who would you trust with resources on the island ?
    Who would be the best hunter?
    Who makes you nervous ? And Why?
    If you could pick one guy that has the most experience building a community .....well, who is that guy?

    Etc, etc,...

  8. Snake - Thanks for stopping by and thanks for your input. It's definitely interesting, but how does it relate to the NFL playoffs :-)

  9. About as much as football has to do with politics.
