NFL Divisional Playoffs Weekend Open Thread

By

Another round of postseason football this weekend, so here’s a thread to talk about all that fun stuff. The Ravens are in Pittsburgh at 4:30pm ET (CBS) and then later tonight the Packers are visiting the Falcons (8:00pm ET, FOX). Tomorrow afternoon the Seahawks (!!!) will take on da Bears in Chicago (1:00pm ET, FOX). We’ll put up a separate thread for the Jets-Pats tomorrow.

    I am Raiders fan, but today I will be rooting for Lewis and Reed (from The U), but I have a sad feeling Big Ben will pull it out in a close game at Heinz Field.

    GB at Atlanta should be a barn burner…hope GB wins, played them tough earlier in the season but I think Atlanta pulls it out, as well.

    Nuclear Bomb (Ravens-Steelers)

    Seahawks

    Who will win:
    Steelers
    Falcons
    Patriots
    Seahawks.

      I hate Boston so I can’t stand the Pats winning anything. But Rex Ryan and Cromarite are making it very fucking difficult to root for that team.

      • Esteban

        I could see how non-Jets fans would hate the Jets, but c’mon gotta root against Boston no matter what right? (except those weird Yankees-Patriots fans out there).

        • The Real JobaWockeeZ

          Yup. Can’t stand that city winning anything. It’s gonna be tough but I guess you gotta root for NY.

        • Pat D

          I can’t root for either of those teams. I liked the Patriots when they were the underdogs, when they played the Eagles (since the Eagles and Cowboys are my two most hated teams), but once the Spygate stuff came out, I stopped liking them.

          As for the Jets…well, they’re, as my dad calls them, “the dog-ass Jets.” I don’t know exactly what that means, but it’s funny. As a Giants fan, the only time I ever rooted for the Jets is when Parcells was there. Once he left, I stopped caring about them all together. Now that Rex Ryan is the coach, they’re just so easy to hate. Oh, and I don’t care for Mark Sanchez, either.

        I hate NE but this makes me root for Welker. Well done.

        • The Real JobaWockeeZ

          LOL. Nicely played Welker.

          Bart Scott crying over it makes it even better

      I want the nuclear bomb in Pats/Jets.

  • Poopy Pants

    The retard Jets have me rooting for Brady and the Pats. It’s disgusting.

  • FIPster Doofus

    I’m hoping the Packers and Seahawks win this weekend just so a 7-9 team can host the NFC title game.

  • Michael Mirabella

    The Packers record was 10-6, otherwise they wouldn’t have gotten the wild card.

  • Jimmy McNulty

    I like Tom Brady. He’s good enough so Pats fans have to root for him, but he wears Yankee hats in public, he roots for the Lakers, and there’s no way that you can say that he’s overrated. I don’t mind the Pats without Rodney Harrison and Teddy Bruschi.

    • http://twitter.com/steveh_mandaura Steve H

      How can you dislike Bruschi? I can see Harrison, but Bruschi?

      • Jimmy McNulty

        He’s one of those players that their fans seem to like…mainly just the hype and the media/fan perception of him. Got kinda annoying. Especially when Chris Berman woud always say Teedy BRRREEEEEWWWSKI.

    • Jimmy McNulty

      Another thing that makes Tom Brady awesome: he’s publicly called out the Pats fan base.

    Don’t they realize that the trash talk is what makes these games exciting? How much has the Pats/Jets trash talk hyped that game and made it an actually anticipated game?

    • mbonzo

      The NFL is the stupidest sports league. Part of the reason I don’t follow football like I do baseball.

      • http://www.superkyle.tk Engelbert

        CFL for the win.

  • Jimmy McNulty

    GREAT play.

  • JDDZip

    If your a Yankee fan, you can’t root for the Pats.
