unless they improve drastically from how this season has gone so far. if you watched the saints giants last nite- you can see that new orleans can be grouped with green bay at this point- theyd likely destroy any afc team in the SB. if youre like me- then you dont want the steelers to advance to SB only to lose the game; to me- if you go- then you WIN!!- no exceptions! at this point- in terms of getting a fun/competitive SB- youd almost want the pats to advance- bc theyd likely lose in a good shootout- sumthin like 45 - 34. but i take that back- i dont want the pats winning the championship game, so maybe itd be better if the ravens advance- nah- screw that!!!- the best possible result would be cin advances & sumhow loses a close game.
anyway- some obs from last nite:
the giants now must win against green bay; if not- theyre out. their sumtimes great defensive line wasnt effective last nite; they better hope that changes against green bay. at least it CAN happen, whereas most other teams will be easily destroyed by rodgers or brees.
special note on brandon jacobs: similar to my other post about some wr's- if i were the giants id cut this guy on the plane ride home! he seems like an ass, and ineffective too much of the time. hes "football old". great run last nite to get the td- ran some people over, but then his celebration- which should have drawn a flag- was excessive & inappropriate relative to the score & circumstances.
still 5 weeks til playoffs, but right now- hard to think anyone will beat packers or saints in SB. one addl thing regarding potential seeding in nfc- the niners may go in as second seed; if that happens- its gonna have an odd effect- the real championship game could very well be the divisional playoff round if the saints play the packers. that could make for a sucky actual championship game, but hopefully that doesnt happen. i actually like the championship game sunday better than the SB.
