So it’s here at last, the AFC and NFC Championship games. Are you ready?
With all the talk about teams that don’t have enough offense, the four teams remaining are in the top ten in defense…something our Chiefs need to pay close attention to.
Do you feel we belonged in this group after watching them play and our Chiefs play?
The games seem to be on a completely different level – one we’re not in yet. Our defense seems far away from where they need to be, don’t they?
I have to be honest, after those last two losses (Oakland and the Ravens) it was like letting the air out of all of us. We all say how cool it was to win the division and be in the playoffs, but it sure didn’t feel hopeful.
I have been on the Green Bay Packers since before the season started. Injuries of course made their trip to the title game uphill, but they did it. Aaron Rogers is outstanding and they are my pick to win it all. If so, they’ll be the second team to get it done from the number 6 playoff spot since the Steelers did it. The Packers have strong defense, a big star leading the way, Clay Mathews and timing. They’ve added a running game to their brilliant passing attack. I see them beating Chicago on the road.
The Steelers always show up in the end don’t they? Not a sexy team to watch, unless you’re an underage gal who follows Big Ben around the bar scene. Jets are kinda the unlikely team to get there, though they made it to the AFC title game last year against the Colts.
Maybe it’s their time. I like the Steelers at home with their defense and knack for the big plays at the end of big games.
Steelers vs. Packers in the SuperBowl: Winner: The Packers: 28-17….enjoy the games.
