Out of the Blue

Happy Internet Freedom Day. Thanks GamePolitics. And thanks Internet.

Well, with three more games left in the NFL season I have no chance of getting even in the playoffs. A perfect run from here on out would just even me up for a 1-3 week last week, but what can you do? Yes, pick better, I know. Speaking of picking better, almost everyone else faired better than I. Here are last week's results: Verno, Topevoli, sauron, and Creston 3-1; dj LiTh, Jivaro, Cutter, and Batman 2-2; and mag was also 1-3.

This week: Patriots and 49ers.

Since everyone is going Pats, I'm going to go with the Ravens. Realistically NE is a much stronger team than the Ravens, but I dunno, the Ravens have OWNED the Patriots the last two times they faced each other in the playoffs, and if the Ravens D blitzes the fuck out of Brady (and Flacco can overcome the early 21 point barrage it will lead to), they can hit him enough to where he becomes skittish and starts watching the linemen rather than his receivers.

That's how the Giants and the Ravens have both beaten the Pats twice. I'd like to think Harbaugh knows this.

As for the Falcons, yeah, shitting the bed at home and nearly blowing the game doesn't give me much confidence you're going to beat a fantastic-looking 49'ers team on the road.

So, Ravens - 49'ers.

Yeah looking at their history I keep wanting to change my pick to the Ravens before its too late but I don't know, Brady is just so good in the playoffs, I have to stick to the Pats.

Atlanta had a good season but a lot of it was luck, hope and a prayer, I just don't see them presenting any challenge to SF.
