We all know that it's going to be Denver and Seattle at the end..
So I don't really care about the 6th seeds..

The seeds in the AFC will be:
1. Denver
2. Boston..
3. Colts
4. Bung-holes
5. Chiefs
6. Miami

NFC:
1. Seattle
2. Carolina
3. Eagles
4. Bears
5. 49ers
6. Saints

AFC WILD CARD WEEKEND
CHIEFS beat bung-holes
Colts beat fins

NFC WILD CARD WEEKEND
Saints beat eagles
49ers beat bears..

AFC DIVISONAL
Denver beats chiefs
Boston beats colts

NFC Divisional
Seattle beats saints
Carolina beats 49ers

AFC CHAMPIONSHIP
Denver beats Boston

NFC CHAMPIONSHIP
Seattle beats Carolina

SB..
Seattle beats Denver's suspect defense..

The 6th seeds may change.. But whatever..
Ravens and chargers won't do much better than the fins..
The same could be said about Arizona replacing the saints..

Is it too early to talk about this TD?
ITS NEVER TOO EARLY TO TALK ABOUT FOOTBALL!!!


I agree with the way you seeded both conferences but I don't think it'll shake out the way you've predicted.


AFC WILD CARD

Bengals over Chiefs
Colts over Dolphins

NFC WILD CARD

Eagles over Saints
49ers over Bears

AFC DIVISIONAL

Broncos over Chiefs
Patriots over Colts

NFC DIVISIONAL

Seahawks over 49ers
Eagles over Panthers

AFC CHAMPIONSHIP

Patriots over Broncos

NFC CHAMPIONSHIP

Eagles over Seahawks

SUPER BOWL

Eagles over Patriots


Lots of changes but I have to roll with my gut, which is telling me several things:

-the Eagles have the hottest collective offense in the NFL right now
-Manning is the GOAT*RS (GOAT - regular season) but Brady finds ways to win when it matters
-Seattle's offense is WAY too shaky for a SB run, homefield or otherwise
-how in blazes is KC supposed to win a playoff game???
- again, you're underrating the Eagles big time
-the NFL is never as predictable as you think come January
-Romo being out for the season is ok because this way it won't be his fault when Philly wins the East, again
-it's time to take a dump

Anyway good luck. Fun TD idea.


You made a Freudian slip:)
You originally said bengals over chiefs..
Then you have the chiefs vs the broncos in the next round..
You probably have dreams of the chiefs beating the bengals, just like I do!
It's ok..deep down in your sub-conscious you know I am right..

Wow.. You really like the eagles, uh?
I understand that 6-1 is a noice little roll..
But there schedule was cake during that 7 game run..
I will agree with you that it's obvious Foles is here to stay..
But heck.. They are just one bad game away vs Dallas to not even making the big dance all together.. It's very rare for a rookie QB to lead his team all the way through the promised land..
They did lose to the Vikings a couple weeks a go, so let's not get carried away..

The broncos are a vastly superior team over the pats..
New England, (minus half of Connecticut:), has that famous Swiss cheese defense..
Plus they lost Brady's 3 favourite targets..
Losing welker will come back to haunt them..


Oh dip yo... you right, you right.

I meant to say the Broncos would beat the Bengals in the divisional round. My base.

Anyhoo yeah dude, the Eagles are about to tear **** up right now. Way I see it their offense is borderline unstoppable. I would say they're unstoppable but apparently that is not the case because my research shows they actually have been stopped a few times. But still, it was fairly difficult for the opposition to stop them and that right there tells you something.

Also did you see LeSean McCoy in that snow game against the Lions? I mean it doesn't really have anything to do with this conversation or anything but it was still worth mentioning in my opinion. Because he had a good game, I mean, and I enjoy watching him play and so on and so forth. Even though I hate watching him play because he's always helping the Eagles, and as a fan of the Cowboys I'm not allowed to enjoy watching McCoy's bad **** runs and highlight plays and stuff. All those plays are terrible and I hate them very much. Even if they do shock and awe me.

Also Nick Foles shocks and awes me. Know why?

Because he brings hope. And change.

Hope and change. Foles for president?


Yeah the eagles offense is pretty sexy right now..
I well agree with you on your very sexy observation..

HOWEVER..
As the old saying goes..
Offense puts sex-ty thousand butts in the stands..
(Sorry meant sixty thousand:)..
BUT
Defense ultimately wins championships..

Remember when Tampa bay had that lame offense and they destroyed the mighty oaklands offense? About 10 Super Bowls back..

There is no way the eagles will be able to stop seattle's lynch..
It will be a massacre..

Plus you haven't told me how the pats beat the broncos..

Hope everyone is having a very sexy x-mas..


I do remember the Oakland-Tampa Bay Super Bowl but the NFL has changed drastically since then. I don't think a good defense will always beat a good offense anymore, and I'm not so sure that defense really wins championships anymore either.

Anyway you're overrating Lynch who's solid but seems to be wearing down somewhat, not surprising considering his age. Lynch's best days are more than likely behind him.

Reason I think Patriots beat Broncos; Peyton is a one trick pony and his one trick involves posting gaudy enough regular season stats to fool you into forgetting how mediocre Manning is in the postseason.

Look, far be it from me to diminish Manning's regular season stats and such (there is a double standard, though. Romo's stats mean nothing because they're just empty numbers without meaningful wins behind them, but Peyton is the GOAT for tossing oodles of TD's in the regular season even though he blows in the playoffs and cold weather) but Brady is everything Manning isn't.

Manning is records and hype, star teammates and high expectations. Brady is under the radar and somewhat overlooked right now, scrub teammates, etc.

But Brady wins THESE games.

The Chiefs will not beat anybody.

December 23, 2013  01:12 PM ET

It may not be too early to talk NFL playoffs but it is not very wise to ignore the 6th seeds.

December 23, 2013  01:18 PM ET

It's very rare to see 2 number one seeds make it to the finals..
Other than the chiefs "upsetting" the bung-holes, and I guess the 49ers have a 17% chance vs the panthers.. I see things going smoothe for the top teams..
The eagles and bears are a bit of a joke, and so are the cowboys and packers/Flynn..
The 49ers and saints will be licking their chops first round..
Obviously if Rodgers were to come back, the packers become stronger..
But I don't think Rodgers is coming back..
And even if Rodgers did come back..
Maybe he could beat the 49ers and panthers..
But no way he beats the sea hawks in Seattle..

Do you even watch football? (Ok, I remember who I'm talking to, we all know already you don't)

The only winning team the Chiefs have beaten was the Eagles, and that was when they were starting Vick.

I just think that in a division with the diabolical browns..
The lousy steelers..
And a very disappointing Ravens..
The bung-holes should have more than 10 wins..

The chiefs on the other hand have done a fantastic job getting to 11 wins..
Especially with the broncos and semi ok chargers..
Plus Reid is an excellent coach..

They are 0-3 against the Broncos and Chargers

Watch a football game once in awhile.

The bung-holes are about to be 2-4 in their stinky division..
What's your point?
Do you even have a point?:)

I'd rather be 0-3 vs the chargers and broncos..
Than 2-4 vs the ravens, steel and dogs..

The point is, the Bengals have beaten the Colts and the Pats. Playoff competition.

The Chiefs haven't beaten anybody, and if you actually watched one of their games you'd know they aren't going anywhere in the playoffs.

As a 5th seed, they can only host if they and the 6th seed make it to the AFC Championship game. You should know that already!!!

Don't look now but the Steelers could sneak into the playoffs after starting 0-4. However, they need Balt, SD and Miami all to lose. SD worries me. They play KC who has nothing to play for and could rest a bunch of starters.

December 23, 2013  02:40 PM ET

I would wager a pretty, pretty penny that the SB will not feature the Broncos and Seahawks. Maybe one or the other but the NFL is never that predictable.

Just want to point out I was wrong on the Chiefs.

They were overrated.
