    Disagree, Pats would probably beat them by 20 or more. Pack exposed a weak Falcons team, nothing more.

    If you're willing to take the Pats and give me twenty when the Super Bowl comes around, let me know.

    They almost beat them in a NE a few weeks ago, without Rodgers.

    Can't believe I'm defending the Pats but, they had nothing to play for. Pack were fighting for a playoff spot.

    I think the Pats are the better team, but it's silly to pretend that GB couldn't even compete with them. The Packers have an elite QB and a great defense, they're not exactly the Seahawks.

    I wouldn't exactly call him elite. Arrogant, yes, but not elite.

    Out of curiosity, which QBs do you consider elite?

    Who's a less reliable kicker, Folk or Graham?

    As Lombardi used to say the week before playing Halas and the Bears:

    Its Bear Week!!!

    This is going to be a good one.

    In light of last night's game, such a comment is just silly. On the road against the top seed in the NFC, Rodgers:

    * completed 31 of 36 passes for 366 yards.

    * completed all 10 of his attempts on third down

    * His 81.6 completion percentage ranks fifth-best in postseason history (Behind Brady, Simms, Warner and Montana).

    * He has a 134.3 passer rating in the 2010 postseason, having thrown six touchdowns and no interceptions.

    I think Rodgers is probably a top 3 QB now, top 4 if you want to put Roethlisberger in front of him (I wouldn't). I could easily see Green Bay winning it all with the field that's left.

    I agree. Rodgers has played great in every playoff game he has been in.

    Folk in a landslide. He hasn't been the same since undergoing hip surgery after his very good rookie season. Unless the Jets are within 30 yards, I wouldn't even attempt a field goal at Heinz field with Folk.

    Re: NFL Playoffs: Who Are You Rooting Against?

    I hate the Steelers. As a Redskins fan, they're not enemy #1 (Cowboys), but they are definitely a solid #2. It hasn't always been that way but even here in Virginia Beach, Steelers fans are EVERYWHERE. I think it's a combination of bandwagon fans and an abundance of military folks from Pennsylvania who are stationed here. And I'm sure I don't have to tell Bengals fans this but Steelers fans are insufferable.

    My boss, who is from a Redskins family and has never lived anywhere but Virginia, came in wearing his Steelers sweatshirt today. That's bad enough but if they win another Super Bowl, I might have to call in sick for a week.

    Oh, and it sure didn't take long for Steelers fans to change their tune about Roethlisberger, did it? Bah.

    Where's Jack Burton's spot-on analysis about Aaron Rodgers now?
