So, I'm wondering. In the next round, are we picking scores as well as the game--just checking....

Yes, for the Conference Championship round we will pick the scores along with the game. I left my football notebook at work over the weekend so I won't be able to tabulate the latest until tomorrow.

Your Seahawks aversion is touching. ;)

I told my girlfriend to never count them out. The Panthers went totally flat in the 2nd half. They best not play like that with Arizona. The Packer/Crads game had to be one of the best games of the new millenium.

I will go with these in the playoffs:

 

Arizona 27, Carolina 24

Broncos 34, Patriots 31

Although I am a Pats fanboy, I would love to see Peyton win one more SB before he rides off into the sunset!

I got to do a lot of thinking before my I put down my picks. Carolina and Arizona--don't know which way to go on that one. Same for the AFC championship....

Cam Newton was sweating bullets on the sideline watching Seattle. If Seattle had gotten that onside kick I truly believe they would have tied the game and eventually won. If so, I'd be gnashing my teeth right now. :wacko:

 

My picks........

 

Cards

Pats

If Seattle had just kicked the field goal on 4th and 5 in the first half, they wouldn't have needed an onside kick at the end. Then they mismanaged the clock and yardage situation when they got the ball back at the end of the first half and Hauschka missed a long 50-plus yarder.

^ Reverse psychology, eh? ;) 

I know, it is kinda dumb.  Because truthfully, I don't see how the Broncos beat the Pats.  I just see no way of it happening.  If it does, I will be thrilled for Peyton and hope he gets another SB ring.

Denver barely got by Pittsburgh - there is no way they are getting by New England, IMO.  It would have to be a catastrophic collapse for Denver to defeat the Pats.

Panthers 35 - Cardinals 21 (56)

Patriots 24 - Broncos 14 (38)

 

I think I added that stuff up correctly.  Don't tell anyone I work in finance... :)

That's how it will be decided who was closest to points for the game.

Man, I've been thinking and thinking about these games.  I guess I'll post the picks tomorrow morning, but I think I'm 100% decided....
