Well this is it. Conference Championship weekend. I'm going to go with the Eagles (although I'll be rooting heavily for the Falcons) and Pats. You know what's funny? If you look back at my original post on this thread you'll see a little prediction I made before the season even started in regards to who would go to the Super Bowl. And guess who I predicted? You got it. Pats and Eagles.
On paper the Falcons secondary matches up extremely poor against the talented Eagles passing game (even without TO). However, weather is going to be a HUGE factor. They are expecting heavy snow with a 30% chance of rain. Makes the passing game almost obsolete. The Falcons have a great running game which is crucial in poor field conditions. I, however don't see the Falcons walking into Philly and taking this (although nothing would make me more happy). Falcons do have a chance though.
I do not like a rookie QB against Bilichek and the Pats. Roethlisberger looked bad against a soft Jets D. Wait till you see him against the Pats. Hell, look what NE did to the best QB in football last week. If the Pats held the most explosive offense to 3 points what do you think will happen to the Steelers? Look for a heavy dose of a ground attack by Pittsburg.
Here are 2 other loose random predictions....don't hold me to these
- Rich McKay will be the next commissioner of the NFL.
- Moss will be in a Raiders uniform next year (this one is a stretch but I'll grow some gonads and make it).
