NFL Wild Card Round: Lisa’s Picks

Well, I can honestly say that this post-season isn’t nearly as fun as last post-season. I can still recall laughing until I cried when the Packers lost to the Cardinals. ARodg fumbling the ball and then drop kicking it right into the arms of a defender… just thinking about it brings a smile to my face. But I digress.

Here are my picks for this week.


  • Jets vs Colts: I am so tired of seeing the Colts in the play-offs. Am I the only one who gets tired of seeing Peyton Manning’s spongy cheeks smushed into his helmet, knowing that his forehead is just waiting to pop out? That’s not really germane to who will win this game, but it always feels good to mock Peyton. I don’t see the Jets winning this one. I believe peaking in the first 5 weeks of the season never bodes well later in the year. Colts 28, Jets 19.
  • Ravens vs Chiefs: I wish I could find something funny to say about this match up. I can’t pick on Matt Cassel since he had an appendectomy a few weeks back. And I already stated that the Baltimore paper stated that the Ravens weren’t a championship team. Seems that other cities may actually have media that is more negative than ours. I didn’t think that was possible. I’m really just trying to delay my pick on this by writing more. I’ll stop. Ravens 24, Chiefs 21


  • Packers vs Eagles: A few posts ago, I gave the reasons I thought the Packers would lose this game. I actually thought it out, people – I didn’t just default to my natural opinion of the Packers, which is that they suck. I actually proved it out! I’m a little worried about Vick stating that he’s only at 75%. I can’t have the Packers win this one… I really want to write a post about how even Tarvaris Jackson hasn’t lost TWO play-off games. Eagles 28, Packers 24.
  • Saints vs Seahawks: Well, the Seahawks “won” their division with a losing record. And man – do I hate the Saints. I am so tired of seeing those stupid Saints commercials during games. We get it, NFL. You gave them a championship. Please try not to broadcast it. Did I mention I hate the Saints? That makes this that much harder. Saints 31, Seahawks 14.

Now it’s time for YOUR picks! Don’t forget to vote!
