Happy New Year! The Virgin part of the program has now been replaced with prognostication. Oh how much the time flies by. May 2009 bring to you everything that goals and achievement reward. For most it will be a time of waiting. Everyone seems to be waiting these days. Waiting for the economy to get better. Waiting for the end of the world. Waiting to pay the bills. I hope that enough of us will stop waiting and go about our normal business. For when that happens, the economy will no longer be the topic of discussion. It will be something about those rich getting richer no doubt. But I digress. It is Wildcard Weekend in the NFL, and it is time for prognostication. Next week I will try to pick the two final teams and this year the tournament is going to be the toughest ever.
Home Sweet Home
NFL playoffs come at you at a whole different level. For some teams like
Up Vs Down – Side Vs Side
This wild weekend sees four games full of drama and intrigue. It begins with the Atlanta Falcons in
The next game is the Colts of Indianapolis against the Chargers of San Diego.
Normally, this would be a no-brainer because one team will have won several weeks in a row and the other would be tanking. Tanking that they got into the playoffs at all! Oh what a terrible joke. Both teams have been really playing well. This would be a side vs. side matchup.
The first game on Sunday is the Baltimore Ravens against the Miami Dolphins. Both teams are also playing well.
The last game on Sunday is the Philadelphia Eagles at the Minnesota Vikings. Have you watched the Vikings play lately? Have you watched the Eagles play lately?
Enough said. The Eagles dominate offensively and defensively.
If that goes to plan, all four home teams would have lost which is usually a ridiculous proposition. But not too ridiculous on Wildcard weekend in the NFL, my friends.
What To Watch
Teams create momentum in these Wild Card games. The New York Giants convinced me that they were ready to play last year and actually won it all. Can another team do the same? The season-ending chapters of the NFL season become memorabilia everyone purchases the second weekend of February. Sometimes it all comes together for one player or coach and they become the symbol or rallying point.
But at first blush, how the heck is anyone beating
