    Pittsburgh's OL ran a clinic today vs that Dolphins front, and they're gonna be a great matchup vs the Chiefs next weekend. That game is going to be a classic.

    Still awaiting that last game, but either way we already have a great matchup of contrasting strengths with Seattle vs Atlanta. Dallas vs either Green Bay or New York will be a good one.

    Only dud will be Houston vs New England. Really like the way this is shaping up.

    I agree. Its a shame that Oakland ended up limping in to the playoffs with a #3 QB - I would have liked to see what kind of run they could make.

    I still think we are looking at GB v Pit in the SuperBowl but it could just as easily be NYG v NE

    I think the Cowboys are in for a first round exit and I think the Falcons are going down to the Seahawks.

    No doubt man. If Oakland had their QB we'd have 4 strong matchups and one of the most memorable divisional rounds in years. It's still gonna be great but yeah, really feel for their fans it's a bad deal.

    Green Bay was 21st in scoring defense so at this point I'm just hoping they can get past this game. New York has much more of the look of a deep playoff team IMO, having given up only 17.8 ppg. Either way hope this one's a good one, heading to the bar to enjoy it.

    Yeah, New England is an early 16 point favorite. I can only see that going up.

    Pittsburgh opened up a 1 point favorite on the road, a little bit surprised by that.

    I'm just rooting for Seattle to lose. I can never enjoy the game when a team I hate is winning.

    I made a provisional book earlier today. I could post outright odds but I don't want to post handicaps and Over/Under bets because I have to keep posting new items when lines change. I can't put +3 bets in with +4 because 1 of them might end up being a push. 80% of bets are made on the day of the event so it isn't worth the time/effort to update it every day. That said where I am at the moment is in the .zip file below. I haven't looked at the Over/Under odds yet because they're heavily dependent on the weather and as a Brit i'm not much interested in US weather forecasts for the week.

    The only thing that can make this years playoffs interesting to me is a surprise (esp since he is dead) appearance by Fan Man.

    All I know is the Cowboys will beat the fudge-Packers by at least 10 points. Of course, the media will say its because the Packers "beat themselves", but I'm use to the media bias against the Cowboys.

    I agree the Boys are gonna beat the Packers like a drum. Pack doesn't have a very good defense, but the Cowboys' defense has been a model of consistency in points allowed plus they have a power offense. That's the deep playoff recipe right there.

    Only team that might be able to knock off Dallas in the NFC is Seattle, and that's a stretch. I think you have a Super Bowl in your future this year man.

    All that aside, the victim card with the media from a Cowboys fan is pretty rich. Thanks for the laugh.

    Aren't you the guy who has been railing on the Boys and Garrett for years? Calling him Mr 8-8 and such?

    Yeah, and? I have high expectations. I don't celebrate moral victories.

    Absolutely. Maybe not this year, but 90% of Cowboys coverage is negative. If Romo had thrown the game ending interception in the SB instead of Wilson, you'd hear about it for the next 10 years.... Just like they still show the bobbled snap in Seattle from 2006

    That's just recycling of an epic fail.
    Hell, I still see a Bill Buckner clip from time to time.
    No bias. The world just likes fails.
