Out of the Blue

I ended up at .500 picking last week's NFL playoff games, which is not impressive, especially when not using the point spread (though I wonder how many people outside of Seattle picked the Seahawks?). Let's see if we can improve on that this week: Steelers, Packers, Bears, Patriots.

Your picks are fine except the Seahawks are going to beat the Bears. Then they'll host the NFC Championship Game at 9-9 and beat the Packers to represent the NFC in the SuperBowl. The refs will then hand them the SuperBowl they way they handed it to the Steelers when Seattle last played in the Superbowl, and equalibrium will be restored to the universe.

So let it be written. So let it be done.
