    This is what I posted earlier in week concerning this game :
    "I reallly think SD will roll this time. Titans will probably not be able to score enough and actually they are "in" because Colts had division locked up. I was telling someone today I believe Browns-SD would have been more entertaining.
    I like Jeff Fisher as a coach but they play that "grind it out" type football which I dont really care for.


    Grind it out was another way of saying "boring" to me. Now, I know some like that type and that is fine.
    Me, personally I like a game in the 20's anyway. Titans are the type of team that would like to run several 8-9 minute drives and win 10-3. Ball control in other words.
    Also, I cant see Jags doing much if Garrard duplicates 9-21 against Pats.

    The only way the Jags will have a shot at NE is if they are able to run the ball effectively. If NE has an "Achille's Heel" it's their run defense.

    But the Jags can't allow Brady to throw for 300 yds like Big Ben did the other day. And I don't see the Jags really being able to stop Brady from doing so.

    But everyone seems to think that Jacksonville is the darkhorse in the AFC playoffs, so we'll see. But I'm still going with NE by 10.

    Re: NFL Playoffs

    What a weekend of football we have coming up. Maybe the best "top to bottom" matchups for a second round ever.

    (1) Seattle at Green Bay - Favre. January in Lambeau Field. Holmgren. Hasselbeck and his "guarantee."

    (2) Jacksonville at 16-0 Patroits. One of two teams that can really give the Pats fits. Run the ball, stop the run. The coldness of NE should have no bearing on the Jags with the run the ball mantra.

    (3) SanDiego at Indy. SD is 3-1 in last 4 meetings with Manning and Colts. LT. Manning.

    (4) NYG at Dallas. NFC East rivals. Hate each other. Giants 8-1 on road with only loss coming week 1 at Dallas. Owens a question mark. Good Eli or bad Eli. Romo.

    The potential is there for a great weekend. Hopefully all 8 teams show up and give us quality games

    Owens will most likely play according to Phillips;but he is still limping badly.

    But watching Dallas play the last few weeks of the season, and that T.O.is hurt, I see the Cowboys making an early exit.

    I'm not so sure about that. The Colts are going to have to play very well to beat the Chargers, they always play the Colts tough. They picked Manning 6 times earlier this year. I think the Colts will win but I don't think they'll walk over them.

    Yeah, maybe so. Every team seems to have a "kryptonite team", maybe SD is Indy's.

    How many starters were the Colts out that week? Peyton was throwing to Craphonso Thorpe and the Colts still should have won that game. If the Colts make Phillip Rivers beat them then they should roll.

    Yeah the Colts were missing a bunch of starters, and I think the fact that they have a almost healthy team puts them over the top this week, but I don't think they'll win by more than 7-10 pts. I hope I'm wrong though.

    But yeah IF they can keep LT and Michael Turner in check they'll probably win big, I just don't know if they'll be able to do that.

    He's not listed as "out" yet is he?

    I thought it was a foregone conclusion?

    Perhaps I am mistaken.

    Well, it sure seems unlikely that he'll play but Turner keeps saying that he'll be evaluated later in the week. My guess is they will list him as a game-time decision.

    This is the best weekend of the entire year for professional football.

    I don't know. Colts/Pats and Cowboys/Packers sounds pretty good next week, I hope we get that.
