Patriots playoff chances?
« on: January 02, 2012, 04:12:12 PM »
Well the Pats finished with the #1 seed in the AFC again but we know how that went the last couple of years ::)

Their defense is scary bad but they manage to find a way to win!  The one thing is no one in the AFC looks unbeatable right now! Baltimore is probably the most rounded team but not unbeatable.

I guess the Pats have as good a shot as anyone to go to the superbowl, but who will be waiting for them :o

You can make the argument that the Pats D shut down the Bills for 3 qtrs, but that was also after the Bills benched their best receiver. I would have felt better about the Pats D if Andre Carter was still on the field, but now, not so much.

I think your right Joe, Baltimore has the best shot in the AFC right now, but they will only go as far a Flacco will take them. Because there is no clear cut "best" AFC team this year, it should make for some pretty exciting playoff football. Either way, the Super Bowl will go to an NFC team this year and that game will be a laugher.

I am with you guys, Pats have as good a chance as anyone. Baltimore has a great defense, but no QB that they can count on so that evens the team out. If the Pats D steps up like the Colts D did the year they won the super bowl then we would be looking good. Remember the Colts D that year... horrible. But in the bowl playoffs they were absolutely awesome. Hopefully we can do the same. I am with John, we can talk AFC all day long, but there are way too many power houses in the NFC and I think whomever makes it to the bowl is just going to get stomped. If the Pats are not in it I will be rooting for the 49's! (my team from the NFC since I was a kid)

I say it comes down to the Pats and the Packers! At least that who I think it should be!   ;D

That sounds like a great match-up Bob, altho a Brees vs Brady could be an epic game as well.

NFC I would like to see the 49's go. Everyone seems to be counting them out already and they have the best D in the NFC and a decent offense as well. I am looking to see 49's/Pats in the bowl this year.

Wow! What a game between the Saints and the 49er's! That was a nail biter for sure!  And now Brady with 5 TD's in the first half! Good weekend for football. Next week and my predictions!

Ravens      ------      Ravens  
                               Pat's        -----  Pat's
Pat's          -------
Denver
                                                              __ __ _   New England Pat's

Saints
49er's     -------    49er's
                                           -----  Packer

I wouldn't count the Giants out yet Bob, could be an upset today!

Earlier in the week i told a few coworkers the Pats would win 45 to 10. I should have bought a powerball ticket :D

Pats will have a tough time with Baltimore but Brady is on a mission this year. Pats in the big game!
