The Divisional Round is over, and I laid another prediction dud.

What is wrong with me right now?

Could it be the fact that I have been predicting games purely out of favoritism?

Yeah, that's probably it.

Oh well. Let's see what the conference title games have in store, shall we?

The NFC Title game comes down to the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints.

This is officially the game that will decide who I pick in the Super Bowl. I cannot stand the Colts or Jets.

The Saints ended the season looking like crap, but made me eat my words with their spanking of the Cardinals Saturday night.

The Vikings did what I expected. They blew out a substantially better team than the Saints did.

How about that Sidney Rice?

The Vikings win seemed to come a lot easier to them than that of the Saints over the Cardinals; considering the Cowboys were held to 3 points.

I thought they were the hottest team in the NFL "experts?"

So much for that.

Go Brett Favre!

I am predicting the Vikings to win this one, God wants Brett Favre to get another, so here it comes.


AFC Title game

The Colts and Jets, how disgusting.

Let's just face it.

The Jets have had their past four games handed to them on a silver, wait, GOLDEN platter.

Step One: The Colts pull their starters. There's a win.

Step Two: Bengals goof off so they can play in the first round. There's a win.

Step Three: Jets maliciously attack the entire Cincy receiving corps so there is no passing game. There's an evil win.

Step Four: Nate Kaeding misses THREE field goals in a three-point game. There's a win.

The Colts will win this. There is no question about it.
