  • Championship Sunday

       January 23, 2005

    Ah, it's finally here, the best pro football day of the year. But wait, you say, isn't that title reserved for Super Bowl Sunday? Not a chance - on Championship Sunday you get TWO games, not one, and this year, I think that all 4 of these teams "deserve" to make it to the Super Bowl.

    Since the liberals haven't gotten around to pussifying it (yet), we still keep score in pro football and everyone can't win. That means it's time to make our fearless predictions for Championship Sunday.

    Thoughts on the game, from both Hat & Kris. These line items are taken out of emails sent between us, so you now have some idea what we spend our spare time doing. (sad, isn't it?)

    New England at Pittsburgh
    • Corey Dillon didn't play when Pit stomped NE earlier in the season. +NE
    • NE's strength is in coaching, but does that matter when they're against a running team? +Pit
    • Home field +Pit
    • Pittsburgh, at 15-1, is a home dog in the betting lines, they have a chip on their shoulder +Pit
    • Rookie QB +NE
    • NE played tough last week, even though most of their guys already have a ring. That's to their credit, but can they play two games in a row like that? Don't guys like Bettis & Cowher just want it more at this point in their careers? +Pit
    • Pitt hasnít lost since week 2. +Pitt
    • NE and brady have proven that theyre great in blizzards. + NE
    • So has viniteri. + NE

    We both agree, this game is going to be close.

    Hat's pick: Despite my thinking that it's very, very foolish to pick against NE, I'm going to go with the home team. I think that these teams are about dead-even. Steelers by 3.

    Kris' pick: Neither of these teams has the absolute top notch skill guys, so the game will be more smash mouth. and, i think smash mouth football is won by the team that desires it more. I think Pit is that team. I say they win, but it's close, around 3 points.

    Atlanta at Philly


    • Eagles play blitz happy defense, and that doesn't work against Vick. For every time they get to him he'll break another 2 for 10+ yards +Fal
    • Philly has lost 3 straight home NFC championship games. The pressure is all on them +Fal
    • You think Ed Donatell wants to beat Philly? I do +Fal
    • With TO out, the Eagles already have their built in excuse for losing +Fal

    Hat's Pick: People are wrong to think that the Falcons are a warm weather team: Remember, Vick led the Falcons into Lambeau where they handed Favre his first playoff loss at home, in freezing cold weather. I think it's Atlanta by a TD.

    Kris' pick:: For as good as the Eagles looked agains the Packers, I still suspect that they're nothing more than the Vikings in green. I expect Atlanta to win big, by 10 or more.

    So there you have it, those are our fearless football predictions for this, Championship Sunday, the best (pro) Football game of the year. So if you're reading this before 9pm on Sunday, get outta here! Go get yourself in front of a big TV and enjoy. We'll be still be here to say "I told you so" when the games are over.

    You must have misquoted me. Clearly I said "Philly is great and they will destroy the Falcons". Right?

    Heh, we were ridiculously bad. However, James really did rock the casbah with his college football picks. Yesterday was just a fluke.

    I, on the other hand, am always wrong ;-)
