Wait the Madison play you were not sold on??? Are YOU KIDDING ME..?

Theoretically, holding could be called on every NFL play.


Taken from the Steeler facebook status:
"The Ravens finished with only 126 total net yards of offense, the second-lowest total allowed by the Steelers in the playoffs after the 123 Minnesota managed in Super Bowl IX. The Ravens had 28 yards of offense in the second half."


Tough to win playoff games when you only generate 28 yards in a half...

Exactly! and yet it was called against the DEFENSE ..in a crucial situation on a ticky tack call...go wonder. NFL refereeing is at an all time low.

This GB/Atlanta game is starting to get a little cheesy.....

If Seattle can knock off the Bears tomorrow, it should line the way up for the Pack representing the NFC in the SB. I don't see Seattle winning tomorrow as that much of a long shot, especially if we see the same Jay Cutler that got sacked 9 times like he did in that one primetime game earlier in the season.

If it comes down to the Packers, Seahawks, or Bears playing the Pats in the SB, I feel the Pack has the best shot of those three teams to knock off Brady/Belicheck.

I want the guy that loves to talk about the underrated south to come on this thread again... the one that probably spent hours looking up all the different sportscasters for the past 20 years and where there from to prove to us about the north bias because we're not sold on atlanta...

I just want to say about my picks that I should be 2-0 but the Ravens decided to stop playing in the third quarter... Hopefully my picks for tomorrow line up. Jets and Bears.

Then I got the Pack and Jets for superbowl... A guy can dream...

That second half for the Ravens was disgusting...but at the same time it's not as if their offense was tearing it up in the first half either. Overall a great defensive game...that big pass at the end was amazing. Don't know how you let that receiver get behind you like that but what can you do?

This Pack-Falcons game is a bloodbath. Did not expect this at all.

Hopefully the Pats will kick some ass tomorrow.

What is this whole North-South thing? Regardless of where the teams are from, the players themselves are largely from the South/West...who cares anyway? I don't understand what point is being made.

That was my point... all this fuss about North and South when it makes absolutely no difference. People pick the teams they realize are playoff tested over one and done. It has nothing to do with prejudices or anything else. But anyways I just want tomorrows game to be a good one. J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets.

Well LOOOKAHHH HEEERE!!!



Dat lookah likah HOLD to me!!!

By the way, if the referees are so "biased" in Pittsburgh's favor, then how come the Steelers were flagged twice as often as the Ravens?
