Okay everyone, with the draft in the rear view mirror it is time for predictions: who's going dancing in the 2010 NFL Playoffs? This format will be simple: I'll look at teams in the AFC that made it last year, pick "in or out" for all of them, and then predict who I think will fill the vacated spots. I'll then do the same for the NFC.
Teams make appearances in the slide show in order of LAST YEAR'S PLAYOFF SEEDING.
Some of these picks are tough, but on average, only 6-7 teams that made the playoffs last year return again the following year. With two of last year's wild card teams so strong (Ravens, Packers), I think this is a year that seven teams return to the dance- mostly because I couldn't find a sixth team that I could justify keeping out.
