Only Mr. GE correctly picked the top two seeds in both the AFC and NFC, except he got the order wrong for both conferences.

Seeding is going to be significant:

It means the Falcons won't have to play in the rain in SF or Seattle or in the cold/snow in Green Bay.

It means the Patriots will have to beat Denver in the noise and altitude at Mile High. NE won't be able to run the up tempo offense it did against Denver earlier this year in Foxboro because the noise will make it much harder to call audibles, and the linemen will spend all day wondering where all the oxygen went.

I think the Broncos gained the most by winning the top seed.

I hope you are right: The Pats have had their day and now it is time for Denver to shine again....at least for one game, if not the whole post season. I would love to see the Skins at the top come Feb but loyal or not, I am a realist...of course Denver is my second fav team as well.

Someone here had the SB pegged! Congrats to 7express for picking it!

As for me, I had the AFC pegged, but not the NFC. In fact, I wasn't close!

Also, props to NMNita for suggesting the Redskins would surprise! This too turned out to be correct.

You did good in my book. Someone at ESPN had the Eagles and Ravens, are you kidding me? And they get paid big bucks to supposedly "have a clue"!!!

like SkinsFan posted a couple weeks ago about so called "experts" picking the skins last in the NFC East, these guys in most cases usuallyhave about the same picking percentage as a monkey throwing darts....
