Broncos over Packers.

I hope you know the Falcons are spelled with an "N" and not an "R". Second, I have absolutely no idea how you have them in the SB and even less of an idea of how you have them beating the Patriots.

And going more in-depth in the NFC playoffs, how are the Vikings going to beat the Packers? It's at Lambeau which is an advantage for the Packers. Ponder is questionable, and I can't see him doing what he did in a dome against the Packers. Let AP go off. He isn't going to win the game for Minnesota.

While I think the Patriots-Broncos is going to be a really close, awesome match-up to watch, I'm giving the edge to the Broncos as they'll be the home team as well as being on fire as of late. I feel like Denver's D is just a little stronger than New England's and I like Denver's offense a tad more too. It'll be a close game, but I think Denver is going to edge it out. And GB isn't beating Denver or NE, imo.


Ok..

Your broncos isn't a bad pick..
I give a 65% edge to the pats in that match..
I'm pretty sure it will turn into a shoot out..
And in a shoot out, I'd rather have the pats gun..
The pats just have more bullets..

If the packers didn't have to play the vikes..
I'd be tempted to say the pack get to the SB..
But the vikes showed us they know how to get to Rodgers..
And the pack showed us they don't have a clue on stopping Peterson..


As for my beloved falconator..
Yeah, they aren't very good..
But they just aren't as weak as everyone else..
And their draw is cake..
It's a weak year in the NFL..
It just reeks of inconsistency..
I'm shocked the gmen didn't make it..


It's not like the Broncos offense is lacking in any way, shape or form. And they get the advantage of being at home. Not only do the Patriots have to adjust to being 2 different time zones away, but they also have the elevation factor coming into play.

The passing offense is a toss-up. The only advantage they have is running the ball, but Denver is one of the best teams in the NFL against the run. And Denver also has the 2nd overall D in the NFL while NE is 25th giving Denver another advantage. Then you look at how they're coming into the playoffs -- 11 straight wins -- and the advantages go towards Denver.

You don't need to concern yourself with AD. Let him run all over the team, he isn't going to single-handedly win the game for Minnesota. And how did the Vikings show they can get to Rodgers? His stats: 365 yards, 4 TD, 0 INT. Yeah, the Vikings really can get to him! The Packers are also getting Woodson back which helps solidify their secondary which is going to help contain Ponder from going off again like he did in Week 17.

The Falcons aren't going to beat GB. Just look at a couple years ago. GB is going to throw all over the 23rd ranked pass D.


You better hope GB is half as good as you think they are..
While I admit GB would be favourite against plain Jane Atlanta..
You are going to look silly billy when they lose to the vikes tonight..
Rodgers was sacked at least 5 times against vikes..
SOMETHING ISN'T SITTING RIGHT!!!!!
Lets not forget they had clay..
And even with clay they looked hopeless..
Peterson looked like a man against boys..

How can you say let Peterson run up yards?
The vikes will kill the clock..
Rodgers butt will get cold on the bench..

Your broncos pick isn't bad..
I just like the match up, that's all..
For some reason Baltimore scares me..
But we don't have to play them..
So our draw is cake..

In a Mexican shoot out..
The guy with the most bullets ALWAYS wins..
That's not how you beat the pats..
Last year we destroyed the broncos twice..
BRING THEM ON!!
It's the other manning we are scared of..


They aren't going to lose so I don't really have much to worry about. 5 sacks is nothing to be concerned about and, as I pointed out, those 5 sacks didn't effect Rodgers' stats at all. As I've said the entire time, let AP go. Let him get 200 yards rushing. His 1 or 2 TDs scored isn't going to win it for Minnesota unless the Packers don't stop Ponder, but 2 consecutive games of Ponder going off isn't going to happen and it solidifies the chances of him not going off with the return of Woodson.

What about the match-up do you like? I've already explained why Denver will win and you brought nothing up that would matter. 2 wins last year doesn't mean anything when they have a completely different QB this season.

If you look at Baltimore's match-up and recent results heading into the playoffs, they're limping into it with 3 of 4 losses and a tough match-up against the Colts. I trust Andrew Luck a lot, especially with how he's shown how good of a QB he is all season, I believe that the slumping Ravens are going to have a tough time with him and won't get moving all that much on offense. Watch for the rookie to advance to the 2nd round.

And just as a heads up, since you've consistently referred to them as the Falcors, I hope you know the franchise based in Atlanta is named the Falcons. Normally I'd just assume the "Falcors" was some type of nickname, but considering some of the other things you've said in the past, I wouldn't be surprised in the least if you thought their real name was the Falcors.

I know they are falcons..
But
Falcor is so cool..

And going more in-depth in the NFC playoffs, how are the Vikings going to beat the Packers? It's at Lambeau which is an advantage for the Packers. Ponder is questionable, and I can't see him doing what he did in a dome against the Packers. Let AP go off. He isn't going to win the game for Minnesota.

Wanna explain the logic as to how a cold, potentially snowy field plays advantage to the now pass happy packers? they aren't so invincible as when they used to be able to actually pound the rock on the ground. a cold snowy field favors the vikes easily. crowd noise favors the pack yes, but when youre not calling audibles (thank god we haven't given ponder that option) there isn't as much hostility. If anything, the two aspects of lambeau balance out between the teams. I'd say the vikes have a puncher's chance. Winfields health hurts them way more than playing in GB where they shouldve won the first time.

I also love your last comment. Let AP go off. Please do. that would be wonderful. Keep the pack on the sidelines, kill GBs defense, then all it takes is a few dropped passes by finley or jones and the packers fall apart. Seriously think before you comment.


Also, please stop calling them the falcors Highway. C'mon man!!!

Think before I comment? I'm thinking perfectly clear. You're blind. Look at what AP did against GB in week 17. He wasn't the reason they won. Ponder having 3 TDs, poor coverage and poor tackling were the reasons that GB lost. Charles Woodson is returning so that improves the coverage and the Packers will have their slot receiver in Randall Cobb back. It'll also help even more in the return game, too.

The Packers are at home. They don't have the loud Toilet dome to play in so they can't audible. They'll be able to audible and with how loud Lambeau can get, it's just another advantage for GB.

You mention how it'll be cold, but how has that stopped the Packers in the past? It hasn't. DuJuan Harris is starting to emerge as a RB the Packers can count on and how quick you forget the Packers 55-7 victory over Tennessee at home when it was cold. For the game it was around 23-25 degrees the entire game with minimal wind (5 mph going N-NW).

Weather won't be a factor. Overnight temperature is supposed to be a low of 16, low winds and snow flurries after midnight. There's no concern of participation, the cold isn't going to negatively effect the Packers' passing attack and the Packers will cruise to victory.

precipitation, not participation...
