Out of the Blue

One home team and one road team won yesterday, just like I picked it, but I was still 0-2 in what's turning out to be a remarkably unimpressive attempt at predicting the NFL playoffs. The games were wonderfully competitive though, living up to the cliché that the divisional round is the best week of football of the season. Here's hoping today's games are equally entertaining.

Can't believe the Broncos choked so hard, it was their game to lose for sure.

There will be changes made to the Broncos' secondary in the off-season, guaranteed. The rest of the team played well enough to win, but three of the starting four DBs had what I have to imagine to be the worst performances of their playoff careers. Champ Bailey looked even older then he is and both safeties looked like they just walked off a JC practice squad.

Amazing season for the Broncos though, and their loss sets up a rematch between the Pats and Ravens in the AFC Championship. If you call yourself a NFL fan you have to be looking forward to that. Lewis versus Brady one more time and the Ravens get a shot to makeup for last year's gut wrenching loss. Good stuff.

Being a 49er fan I am obviously looking forward to the NFC Championship game. I have expected my team to get there again all year, but I was honestly concerned that Green Bay (and in particular Aaron Rodgers) was too hot to beat. Glad I was wrong. At the same time, I have been doubting that Atlanta was for real all season. I think it is safe to say now that they are for real. I still think the 49ers are the best team in the NFC, but I definitely take Atlanta far more seriously now then I did 48 hours ago. Particularly their running game.

The NFC game has the potential to be just as entertaining as the AFC game and this past weekend was certainly fun to a fan of the sport that makes me happy. Too often these playoff games don't live up to the hype.
