Here watching Kansas run up and down on Tenessee with a slew of athletic white guys. Notre Dame is in a way to close game at the Garden. But we digress, this is going to be a great Saturday.
I really want to take Arizona today. They’ve had no real good reason to play for the last month, hence the disgusting displays of football they have produced. Kurt Warner, no matter how turnover proned, is still statisticly one of the most prolific passers of all time and may even be a hall of famer. Two pro bowl receivers, a very creative head coach and home field advantage.
Atlanta on the other hand is basically a new jack on the scene. Rookie head coaches and rookie qb’s on the road rationally should not fare well. The team itself is only 4-4 on the road. Also, this team’s teams last loss was to a high powered offense bent on throwing the ball to all parts of the field with a terrible defense. That would be the Saints of New Orleans.
Don’t get me wrong. Not bashing the Falcons here, I just think everybody has been a little mislead by the last month of the season. Atlanta needed to keep winning this year and won, Arizona didn’t. Because my mind makes money and my heart makes mistakes, I’m throwing my hope on Atlanta, 31-27.
The Colts, winners of their last nine, with a guy who in my opinion has already locked up greatest qb of all time, go up against a team they’ve already beat in the venue in whoch they beat them. Peyton Manning has not fought his way through hell and back to lose to the Chargers AGAIN in their first game of the playoffs. Eff that.
And I don’t care about the similarities between this year and last year. LDT is banged up and we think its going to completely play a part in today’s game. Plus, Phillip Rivers is an ass. The experts think this is going to be close. I seriously think Indy is going to use this game to scare the shit out of the rest of the AFC playoff teams. Indy was dead, and yet is still alive. How do you kill dead men? Indy-38, San Diego-17.
