Handicapping the 2010 playoffs


I'm curious to see how you guys see the playoffs playing out. Especially Daily Norseman's own handicapper EricJ! lol

 I put $375 on the Vikes to win the Super Bowl since my Steelers didn't make it in this year. Before the season started, the second Favre signed, i predicted the Oct.25 game was going to be a Super Bowl preview.

Unfortunately my team got hit with the Madden Curse, so hopefully, the other half of my prediction can come through.

I got the Vikes 8 to 1 odds to win the Super Bowl. I jumped all over that the moment they won the #2 seed.

I'm interested to see how you guys see this playing out and whether you guys think i'll win my $3000 or not.

I've noticed on this site that we'll be cheering for Dallas over Philly as it sounds like everyone thinks they match up better with Dallas than any other NFC team. I tend to agree as Andy Reid seems to know how to outcoach Chilly. I have no clue who will win this game but i'll be cheering for Dallas.

As for the Packers Cards matchup. The "experts" are all picking green bay but i think Arizona will win that game. UH OH!! Cards are getting disrespected again!!!! Watch out NFC! The Packers went all out against Arizona's scrubs as green bay needed that game and the cards had nothing to play for. I got Arizona's starters to win this game.

Then, i see Arizona going on the road at New Orleans and i see them winning as they've actually been a better road team this year. I've had no faith in New Orleans all year, and this was before and after they beat the Pats. Time and time again i kept thinking this team was full of crap for winning games they had no business winning. I'm still scratching my head trying to figure out how they won those games @Miami, both Atlanta games, @Washington, even the Rams game!

So, even if my predictions are wrong with the wildcard matchups, i still think Minny gets homefield as i believe any of the wildcard teams will beat the Saints. I just don't see anybody being able to go and beat the Vikes on their homefield.

Then we get to the Super Bowl. I don't see how it'll be anyone but the Colts or the Chargers.

I could see the Jets getting by the Bengals, but no way they beat the Colts. I think that's what will happen there.

Ravens COULD possibly beat the Pats, without Welker. Also COULD get by the Chargers but not the Colts. Personally, i don't see them going into Foxborough and leaving with the victory.

So then the Pats will go to San Diego. Pats have been brutal on the road this year and i think that trend will continue with a loss to the Chargers. The only way the Pats get to the Super Bowl is if they completely change their style and pound it with Fred Taylor as both the Chargers and the Colts weakness is run D and the Pats' pass D is decent. Again, the Pats have been brutal on the road this year and i think that trend will continue and their season ends in San Diego.

So that leaves us with the Colts and Chargers. I like Minny's chances against either team. Both of their weakness is run D and that's where i think we will see Peterson get the Super Bowl MVP.

So there we have it. This is the way i see things playing out. Brett Favre goes Elway and Peterson goes Terrell Davis. lol

So, what do you guys think? How do you see it playing out? Will Freddyd win $3000?
