    I think you are right, But I am hoping for Saints/Jets. Even though a Favre in the Super Bowl would be a big story, either way Vs Manning or vs Former team

    I went 3-1 this week (San Diego messed me up) and I’m 5-3 overall. I got the Colts over the Jets and Saints over the Vikings

    I too would love to see a Jets-Saints Super Bowl.

    FYI: A friend of mine predicted both the Colts & Saints would quickly go down in flames because they had rested starters too long .. thus lost their edge. Looks like he wasn’t even close!

    Didn’t see this thread Lester.. my bad..

    ill copy and paste what I said from the other one for your commenters

    The majority of people are taking the Colts to kill the Jets this week but you have to consider how well New York matches up against Indy. Indy has the worst running game in the league, and is ALL Peyton. The Jets have the #1 pass-defence and if they can put the clamps on Peyton early… it could very well be a Jets win. TheCoach isn’t calling a J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS win but they will cover the spread. I know Indy shut down Baltimore’s running game last week but the Jets strive on being quick and elusive.. something Ray Rice isn’t…

    Minnesota and New Orleans is going to be such a good game. I was hoping all season long these two would meet up in the NFC Championship and honestly.. either team could team this game. The Saints are -3.0 favourites and historically home team get given three points for the home-field advantage… so basically this game is a pick-em and there is ONE thing that I like about the Saints and its that home-field advantage. Last week Warner and Romo combined for 7 sacks and 4 fumbles largely in part to not being able to communicate with their offence. The SuperDome is NUTS and I don’t care how much experience Favre has, the crowd can help a team and also hurt the other so much.

    Feel free to check out my picks with scores (and of course cheerleader pictures) @

    Best of luck to all this week,
