This Chicks Picks for NFL Playoffs, Week Three

Here we go.....

I'm sooooo glad the Patriots are out.  This week I"m only really passionate about one of the games.  It's a no-brainer with Pitt and the Jets.  I'm hoping New York can keep up their momentum and take the Steelers out this week.  Apologies to my son who is hardcore Pittsburgh....I'll cut him some slack because he does acknowledge that Roethlisberger is a goon, but still loves the team.  As for me, go Jets!

As for the Packers and the Bears...I don't really have a fave here.  I used to be a bit of a cheesehead when Favre was leading the team, but no longer have a real need for cheese.  I do, however, like Lovie S. and we love everything else about Chicago.  They look ready to go all the way, so go Bears.

There you have it, I'm holding out for a Jets v. Bears Superbowl.  Let's see what happens!

This Chicks Picks for NFL Playoffs, Week Two

Okay, last week I was only 1:4, and I'm still fairly devastated the Saints and Eagles are both out.  I would have loved to see a Saints repeat, or watched Vick go all the way, after all the lessons he has undoubtedly learned.  That being said, my heart isn't really in the Superbowl this year...but if it was, it'd be for the Ravens.

Let's get to my picks for this week:

Ravens vs. Pitt--It's funny when I think back to a time when I was jumping on my couch, with my Jerome Bettis Jersey on, waving a terrible towel cheering on the Steelers.  Anyone who has read me nowadays knows there is no way in hell I will support an organization that supports Ben Roethlisberger.  Go Ravens.

Packers vs. Falcons--I really have no allegiance either way.....but I'm calling the Falcons.

Jets vs. Patriots-- Ugh.  The lesser of two evils, I say.  I pick the Jets.  Brett's photo package is behind them, the sexual harrassment in the locker room was taken care of and I don't really care if their coach likes his wife's feet.  On the other side....cannot stand Bill Belichick, so go Jets.

Bears vs. Seahawks--  Just don't like the Seahawks, though have real positive ties to Seattle in general (hello...Gray's Anatomy, ICarly and our good friend  No hard feeling Seattle....go Bears.

NFL Playoffs Baby! This Chick's Picks for the week!

Ladies, begins the beginning of the end.  The excitement of the NFL Playoff season is electrifying, though it is hard not to think of the idea that the clock is winding down for football season.  How can that be?  It seems like we just got here....and right when my Detroit Lions were picking things up with four straight wins to closeout the regular season.

Being the eternal optimist that I am, however, I take heart.  You can too.  You see, just because the Superbowl is less than a month away (gasp!), the Draft is close behind, then Spring Training, and before you know it, it will be Pre-season in August.  For the real NFL fans, there is as much that goes on in the off season as there is during the real season.  Yay for us!

Now, back to the Playoffs.  Who is your team?  Mine is out, of course, but I do have teams I like, and teams I like to hate (Yikes!).

My picks for this weekend:

Jets vs. Colts:  This is an easy one.  I've got the Colts.  They have Manning who puts them into auto- drive to a W, and if Karma plays into things at all, the Jets have it coming...sexism, harrassment and just plain disrespect toward women.  Crush 'em Colts!  The winner of this game faces Pitt next week...and that organization really needs to learn a lesson or twenty when it comes to dissing their female fans.  They are in the playoffs thanks to their criminal QB.  How do they sleep at night?

Saints and Seahawks:  I'm with the Saints all the way.  Who doesn't love Drew Brees and his awesome arm and even bigger heart?  They've got game, and well, Seattle just doesn't,  not to mention their coach has been prone to bad sportsmanship.  I can't deal with that....Go Saints.  The winner here goes on to face Atlanta next week and I like the Saints chances for that game too.

Ravens vs. Chiefs:  I'm just not feeling this game but am going to call it for the Ravens.  I don't care who wins as long as they crush New England next week.  Pats Coach Bill and his ethics make me want to hurl.

Packers vs. Eagles:  The Eagles will fly right on through to next week.  I'm really becoming a re-newed Michael Vick fan.  This is a guy who learned a tough lesson, lost his ego and knows the value of the work he has done to bring himself back.  The winner here faces "da Bears" next week, and I'll still be soaring with the Eagles over Soldier Field.
