NFC and AFC Championships Sunday Promise More Fun Than Olbermann's Firing

So the Jets and the Steelers are matching up for the AFC championship, and the Packers are lining up against the Bears in the NFC.

I'm sure the folks getting their sports betting news from BetUS have a far better idea of the match-ups than I do, but I'm not afraid to make predictions. It isn't like anyone is listening to me anyway.

The Jets looked solid last weekend, but a lot of folks are convinced that the game was fluke. I'm not one of them. While I've always liked the Steelers, I think the Jets are peaking at the right time, and I think they have enough in the tank to win by 10.

On the NFC side, I suspect it is going to be a down-to-the wire game, but think the Bears pull it out in the end by a field goal or less over the Packers.

The problem is that we're now down to exactly zero teams I can possibly root for, as a Cowboys fan - I'm so disinterested at this point I doubt I'll even watch the rest of the playoffs. At this point there are only bad, and worse outcomes left. But hey, at least we have the lockout coming to look forward to.

If only Americans would pay as much attention to Washington as they do sports - maybe we wouldn't in this mess.

Nothing that happens on those playing fields will affect your lives. But EVERYTHING that happens in Washington does.

If there's one thing I've learned in my life, it's that the Jets are chumps.

I'm a Giants fan, but being from NY I've watched a lot of Jets games.
The Giants specialty is to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory regularly, the Jets just go all chump.
Like the Sack Exchange's big year, they went 10-1, lost the next 5 and then lost the first game in the playoffs.

But I have to admit, Sanchez is a winner. He might not be all that good, but he wins.

Some QBs are just winners.
Montana was a perfect example. So was Flutie.
But then, Big Ben is a winner too. I don't like him much, but he wins.

It's going to be an interesting game. I think Pittsburgh will win because, as I've said, the Jets are chumps and I don't know if one player can go against the tide of years.
