NFL Playoffs, week 2

Back in the day, when GR, IBiD, and I were roommates, one of our drunken Sunday-afternoon jokes was making fun of that one ridiculously buff NFL referee, who looked like he was competing in a bodybuilding contest every time he spotted the ball, gave the facemask sign, or pointed to offense or defense. His name is Ed Hochuli, and he now has a writeup in Sports Illustrated. Bonus: they include his workout routine, so you can look just like him! (via TaTB.)

Predictions anyone? I say: Pats over Broncos (by 3), Colts over Steelers (by 10), Bears over Panthers (by the who the hell cares), and Seahawks over Redskins (by 91).


  1. I pretty much agree on all those predictions. I think the Pats will make Plummer beat them. And I just don't see that happening.

    The one that makes me laugh is SEA over WASH by 91. reminds me of Borges picking the Rams to beat the Pats in the SB 73-0. Did you see the boston media watch ripping of Borges - good lord.

    I wish the Steelers could beat Indy, but I don't see Manning get knocked out in the first series like Palmer did.

  2. Agreed. I'm rooting for the Steelers tomorrow.

  3. Wow, I suck at predictions. Hopefully I'm wrong about tomorrow as well.

  4. 1 for 4 isn't bad.

    Well, okay, it's not great, but still.
