You Make the Call! Predicting this week's NFC and AFC Championship Games


After two weeks of going 2-2 in playoff picking, it's becoming obvious that I have as good of a chance doing the old coin flip thing. So I'll keep it brief this week, to avoid going on and on about how the Saints and Packers will.....well, yeah, let's just forget about last week. At least I kinda saw the Giants game turning out that way. But close doesn't count. Congrats to those who went 3-1 in this post last week; again we had noone pick 4-0 in this column.

So I'll keep it short and sweet this week.

Ravens vs. Patriots

Until John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco prove they can win the big game and get to the Super Bowl, I'll go with the Tom Brady and Bill Belichick who have done it a few times. The Patriots defense has improved; we will see if they can keep the Ravens scoring limited just enough to win a shootout.

Patriots 31 Ravens 23

Giants vs. 49ers

Jim Harbaugh is a good coach. He's done an unbelievable job this year. Tom Coughlin is also a good coach, and has won a Super Bowl. I see two good defenses, and one good QB. I'm picking this game because Eli Manning is proven in big games, even on the road in hostile environs, and Alex Smith might not even be a starting QB in a couple of years. The Giants pressure from the Defensive Line will cause Smith to have a bad game.

That's how I see it! How about you Panther fans? You make the call...

Let's hear it!!
