Saints-Bears: Patriots-Colts.

3 hours from kickoff for the NFC Title game as I type this, so it's time to lay it on the line, and see who ends up as the sideshow for all the commercials in Super Bowl 41.  Big grin

New Orleans Saints v. Chicago Bears, Soldier Field. Gametime weather conditions: about 30 degrees, with possible snow showers.

I'm gonna pick the road team in this one. I think the Saints are, easily, the most balanced team in the NFC. They are solid on both sides of the ball, and, despite having a good performance last week, Rex Grossman still scares a lot of people if the game is on the line. If it's close at the end, Mr. Brees, Mr. Bush and Co. will find a way to win it.

Saints 24, Bears 20.

New England Patriots v. Indianapolis Colts, RCA Dome. Gametime weather doesn't matter here.

The Pats have been the archnemisis for the Colts for years, and have frustrated Peyton Manning time and time again. The Patriots are one of those teams that play their best when it matters most.

But this time, I think it is finally Indy's year to take the next step. After being flogged late in the year by the run, the Indy D has stepped up big-time in the post-season, and have played physical, solid football. The Pats are coming off an emotional road win at San Diego Last week.

And wouldn't it be ironic if it came down to Adam Viniteiri once again-but this time winning it for the Colts?

Indianapolis 27, New England 23.

Your takes, your picks. Enjoy the games-unless you have a rooting interest, and then will suffer for 4 hours.  Big grin

Let's go for full irony: FG is blocked and run back for a Patriots TD as the clock ticks to 0:00.

Nice, a true first! I would have thought the DSF would show the games, but not the ARD.

My predictions:

New Orleans Saints vs Chicago Bears: 27-24
New England Patriots vs Indianapolis Colts: 35-15 (All Colts points will be field goals)

Sorry Peyton, not even Adam Vinatieri is going to bail you out of this one.

EDIT: Added score explanation.

Sorry, but if that Indianapolis Offense, especially Peyton Manning, doesn't start making touchdowns or start going for it more often than just settling for field goals or punts on fouth down, then this game will be an easy one for Tom Brady and the Patriots. NO vs Chicago, now that will be a close game to the finish. It wouldn't surprise me if that one goes into OT as well.

Some funny stuff, my folks are moving from Newport Beach to Laguna Beach today and have no cable (today) for the games. They plan on hitting up a pub for a bite and to watch some football...

That said...my Dad thinks that the Saints winning it all is a GOP orchestrated conspiracy theory that the NFL is getting money to let NO win it all.  rotfl

Credit is earned by performance. Manning has great stats, is a great quarterback, but in the long run, sports is about winning. Right now, he's getting what he's earned, nothing more nothing less.

My predictions...

Patriots 31 Colts 17

Bears 23 Saints 20


Superbowl Patriots vs. Bears

Patriots 17 Bears 7

Patriots win Superbowl

While I would like to see the Saints in the Superbowl, I am going with my gut instinct. Soldier field is a tough spot to play. As for the Pats, who can stop Brady in the playoffs?

Yes. This season, the Pats lost to San Diego, New York, Miami, and Indy. Indy is the only team left that the Pats have not beat also this season. Tom Brady and the Pats will not lose again.

Why?

It will be his time, once he has a team. Right now, Manning leads his team. Not Dungy, but Peyton. It will be his time, once the rest of his team has settled to where he is. They are on different levels.

They beat SD,that is why they are playing this week.They did not lose to SD in the regular season since they did not play them in the regular season.The fourth team to beat them in the regular season was Denver.Go back and look at the schedule.

I don't. Just run the ball in, and then if you want to do your little dance, fine. But don't show up the other team that way.

Man, great play by Bush. Urlacher is really fast, he outran all his own secondary players. Great play ruined by Bush's lack of sportsmanship. You don't point back at the defense and dive into the endzone. Especially in the conference championship. The Bears are going to go after him hard.
