Pain’s Picks: Better Late Than Never
Well, up until this past weekend, I had not picked one winner in this years NFL postseason. But, like they say, better late than never! More on the games after the jump.
Game 1 was the NFC Championship, which featured The Packers and The Bears. These 2 teams hadn't seen each other in the playoffs in decades...many decades! The team from "Title Town" (Packers) squeaked out a 21-14 win to advance to the Super Bowl. Green Bay was one of my preseason favorites to go to the big game. The upside for all Bears fans out there is that Chicago finally found a QB with heart...and a damn good arm. Hopefully, they'll give Cutler his walking papers and let that Caleb Hanie take over the team. That was a great game!
Game 2 was the AFC Championship, which pitted The Jets against The Steelers. The Steelers came out as hot as I've ever seen them and went into half with a 24-3 lead, but then came The Jets. The second half was all about The Jets, but they came up a bit short as The Steelers held on for the win, final score 24-19. The Steelers won their 3rd AFC Championship in 6 years. Much to the chagrin of Dallas Cowboys fans, The Steelers are making their, Cowboys record tying, 10th appearance in the Super Bowl. The Steelers have 6 win Super Bowl titles, 1 more than The Cowboys!
I'm gonna keep my Super Bowl pick to myself for now.
