We're up 1189 Kurt Warners as we enter the playoffs.
For wild card Saturday, the Falcons play the Cardinals in Arizona. Much discussion was given to the fact that many "experts" were going to pick all 4 road teams this weekend. The Falcons are the NFC version of the Dolphins. From self destructing last year over the Vick mess, they drafted a rookie QB and made the playoffs. Bully for them. The Cardinals are the pick here. Veteran QB Warner lights up the scoreboard as the Cardinals have their first home playoff game since Herbert Hoover was president. Cardinals +1 - +200.
The Colts travel to San Diego to seek a little revenge. Last year the Bolts knocked the Colts out of the playoffs. This year Peyton repays the favor. The Colts are on a nine game winning streak and right now we have them winning this game, and the following week against the Titans before heading off to Pittsburgh, who will beat either the Dolphins or the Ravens. But for today, we pick the Colts -1 +200.
Here's a fun hypothetical- Imagine if you will, an undefeated college football team winning a major bowl game, like say, the Sugar Bowl, and beating a former number one team, like say Alabama. Can anyone explain to me why your Utah Utes are not the National Champions? There's only one undefeated division one college football team, and they don't play in Florida.
