Well, after waiting not too patiently for a decent playoff game in the NFL, we are rewarded with 2 in one day. One decided by 3 points on a last second field goal, the other by 2 on a failed extra point try. Yes, the referee's did their best to miss obvious calls, some calls that they did make were awful, but at least the bad officiating seemed to effect both teams in each game.
I felt sorry for the new kids in Dallas, but they are young and will get over it and have long careers. Plus, it was worth their pain to see Jerry try and make it through an interview.
The Conference Championships next week should be good games as well.

Hope the weather in Foxboro is decent – cold is ok,
but frozen not.
The Atlanta dome – won't make any difference of

I agree both games were good…especially since Dallas lost!

I will be rooting for the NFC in the Super Bowl no matter how next week turns out

Yes, these last two games were good. It was funny how crucial the kickers were in both games. For all the Offense production that took place it was the kicking game that not only decided the outcomes but played a huge part the whole way through.

Strange that my Steelers are now in the Championship game without having scored a touchdown in the last 7 quarters. Proof that you need a solid kicker!
I still have my usual bet with my Patriots fan son of a case of beer, but it's only because it's a traditional bet. I have no hope.

Yeah the playoff games have been snoozers until the Dallas-Green Bay game.

The D-GB game was good, until the wrong team won.

This might be a vulnerable year for the Patriots. But that's a bit like saying "if you fly down this trench and get a direct hit on this two-meter exhaust port, the Death Star will blow up." I'm just not sure the Force will be with the Steelers in that game. Or as Han might phrase it, "Good against Alex Smith is one thing. Good against Tom Brady is something else."

It might also be said of the defense: Good against Brock
Osweiler is one thing, good against Big Ben is something

The Chefs really laid an egg offensively in their game; on the NFL Network show "All 22", they showed a play were one Chefs WR was so wide open over the top it was sickening, easy TD there, Smith locked eyes on him, crapped his pants, abandoned the pocket, rolled out to the right and then threw the ball away.
No wonder SF gave up on him, he sucks; Osweiler was bad, but Smith was not much better.
Brady would have thrown a bullet to that receiver, TD Patriots.
The Patriots should play two high safeties, keep everything in front of them, rush 3, drop 6 into zone coverage and flood the middle of the field.
Think defensive schemes in the 2003 AFCCG and 2004 Divisional games vs Frankenforehead and the high powered Colts offense, who got totally shut down in both games.
Both games this weekend should be very good, I'm not into predictions, we'll just see what happens…………..
