Wait just a minute. Mike and Mike -- obnoxious sportscasters, by the way -- stole my predictions. Just look back earlier in the thread.

They gave the Bears almost no chance this week simply because Carolina has been there before and Rex Grossman has never played in a playoff game and Lovie Smith has never coached one. Well there was a point where Tom Brady had never played in one either; you have to start somewhere. That first playoff win has to come at some point – might as well be this weekend.

To me, all the analysts on TV and in print try to make the “safe calls” in most of the games. Nobody is willing to name an upset even if they think it could happen.

Let’s put it this way – Sport Illustrated and MANY other EXPERTS picked the Bears to win 3 games this year. Nice job – and I am supposed to believe what they tell me about who is going to win in the playoffs now? I don’t think so. They sucked then – did they all of a sudden grow a brain in the post season – I don’t think so.

It's all just fun, anyway.

Except for my picks. Those are serious.

LOL.

The trouble with the other major sports is that there are too many games. Who has time to follow them all? I don't.

By the way, bet the Green Bay players are chomping at the bit to get head coached by the old 49ers offensive coordinator, huh?

They would have been MUCH better off to hire Steve Marriucci , just so he could go back to Detroit and kick the Millen Lions's buttocks.

Hey, I'm from Detroit

The Redskins and New England have the best coaches in the league.
