NFL Playoffs

All you NFL fans, the NY Times has a free just-for-fun pool I decided to enter. You can see my picks at

I'm with a lot of people in considering the Chargers the team to beat, although I'll be pulling for the Patriots. The Pats have a tough opponent in the Ravens even before they get to SD. The Colts aren't dominant but should handle the Bengals or Jets next week; but if the Ravens get through the Patriots, they could bounce the Colts. The NFC seems quite evenly matched and I won't be real surprised however things go. Well, if Minnesota wins I'll be surprised; they haven't looked good at all lately. I'm picking the Saints only because of the bye and home field; any of the other teams will give them a tough time though.

As of halftime of Green Bay--Arizona, it appears likely I'll be 1 for 4 this weekend. Oh well, I thought the games looked pretty even anyway, and I only picked Dallas to win again next week. The Patriots going down not a shocker -- among other issues, Brady has not been a consistently top-echelon quarterback this year.
