There is a reason it is called "Steeler Nation".
Good points. We have a Steelers bar in DC on Pennsylvania avenue. And, what if you - being a Pittsburgh native and life-long Steerlers fan - moved to Cleveland or Cincinnati. Are you supposed to turn your back on the Steelers and now become a Browns or Bengals fan? I don't think so... that's treason.

LOL, I have a cousin and a friend who lives in Cleveland. My friend is a Steeler fan but my cousin is a Browns fan(I know boo). Believe it or not my friend said there is a good amount of Steeler fans in Cleveland.

Wild Card week

Saints over Seahawks

Eagles over Packers

Quarterfinal:

Steelers over Colts
Patriots over Chiefs
Eagles over Bears
Saints over Falcons

AFC Championship:
Patriots over Steelers

NFC Championship:
Eagles over Saints

Super Bowl XLV:
Patriots over Eagles in rematch of SB XXXIX

And as a Giants fan, it pains me to put the Eagles in this game, but I will be hoping my prediction to be wrong every game Vick steps onto the field.
Well, lookie here! The saying about a broken clock being right twice a day does not apply to the Mike0421 football prognostication pool. I need to check the Duracell batteries in my watch and see if I'm running a few minutes slow, or perhaps, a few hours. What an embarrassment!

Attention, aspiring wagerers. I am going to offer up my next round of predictions free of charge later in the week. All of you who wish to lay down bets can feel free to read my predictions and throw all your money in the other direction!

Well, here's a prediction for you: tonight it will be dark! Now, everyone take off for Antarctica, and prove me wrong.

Hey Mike, long time listener, first time caller. Can you do me a solid and pick the Seahawks this weekend? Thanks!

Add to the fact that their coach was beating his chest early on about going to the Super Bowl.

Chiefs win over Ravens

Smell an upset here, the Chiefs are this years sleeper. They are young and hungry. Yes, they are up and down but the Ravens are even more up and down. I think the Arrowheads will be celebrating this weekend.

Saints over Seahawks

The Hawks are 7-9 going into the dome. Seattle vs., Saints will be like the Panthers playing the Falcons this past Sunday. I have a feeling that Brees will pull a 3+ touchdown victory for the Who Dat's

Packers over Eagles

Yes, they are in Philly. But Vick is not 100%. Eagles have a historical weak offensive line. Vicks high life will be short lived, outside the fact that he is a disease (Falcons as example) and already creating issues within the Eagles (Week 16 in regard to ignoring Reid and the QB Coach) thus hurting himself again. Take that aside he is small. Donovan is 6'5" 245. Vick is 5'11" 180. With a weak line small folks can only be crushed by 300+ lb lineman so many times before they break. Kolb and Vick both.

By the time it is done I see Pat's vs., Falcons right now but that could change after this week.
1 for 3.
A great example of why I do not gamble on Football!

Can say the same about Antowain Smith! He did alright over with the Pats.

I'm with you o-ish. A Bear/Packer title game, outside in the cold just sounds so good. No domes, no fake grass, no climate controlled bs, and no canned noise. Like you, I find myself rooting for the Bears (the dark-side) for this one weekend, as you are pulling for the Pack. Hopefully they will both get it done and we'll have an old school title game between two division rivals. Good luck to the Bears (just this weekend though).

GO PACK GO!!

Shaping up to be very interesting!!! Couldn't believe the Saints and Colts lost, although I was pulling for Jets and Seahawks all they way! Now if the Pack can just handle those Falcons!

Don't count on the Packers beating the Falcons.
