More thoughts on the NFL Playoffs...
1. I am glad that the Steelers were able to pull out that win this weekend. It was a great game, but the penalties kind of made it hard to watch.
2. The Packers are good. Real good. They might be the best team left, and they get to play the Bears next week, who just happen to be....
3. ...a decent team with a terrible quarterback. Yes, Jay Cutler had good stats today, but they aren't proof of the way he played. He had several terrible throws (did you see the one right to a Seahawks defender at the goal line who didn;t intercept it because he was so surprised it came directly at him?) and made bad judgments all day. I feel like we'll see him choke next week.
4. Glad the Jets won, but now that means I have to listen to Rex Ryan for another week. I can already hear it now... "This game really comes down to a chess match between me and Dick LeBeau (Steelers defensive coordinator). Arguably the best two defenses in the league out there, it's going to come down to who can get the right formations out there at the right time." Hopefully the Steelers don't lower themselves to his level.
Predictions: CHI 17 GB 31, NYG 13 PIT 17
Also, coming up this week, I plan to make a countdown of my 5 favorite films of all time. One for each day. Stay tuned!
