    So if Green Bay wins, they get to play back to back games at home against the Vikings? That's a strange predicament.

    The last time the Chiefs won a playoff game, I was less than a year old and Joe Montana was our quarterback. This is our year!

    I was in second grade. It was a simpler time. That game was in Houston (against the Oilers), which is where they are headed this weekend. A good sign, perhaps? Though I do have a feeling the Texans will put up a better fight than they did against the Chiefs in Week 1.

    It's still amazing that KC started 1-5 and nearly won the division. All that without Jamaal Charles.

    Stupid Patriots backing themselves into the playoffs and losing home field. Everyone around here is all like "It's okay, we are getting Edelman back!" How can one player take a team from barely being able to move the ball to being Super Bowl favorites? I know Edelman is Brady's binky but if the team was that bad without him, thats not a good sign. They have had Gronk, Amendola, LaFell and a corral of running backs and look listless. Yes, they barely put in an effort against Miami, but the offensive line looks atrocious.

    The NFC has the best teams in the NFL. I hope the Cards and Panthers make the NFC Championship. That game could be amazing.

    Edelman gets open very quick. They don't have anyone else that can do that. The reason the team fell apart when he was gone is because teams doubled Gronk and no one else could get open. Brady couldn't get rid of the ball quickly and started taking a pounding. The patchwork offensive line looked fine until Edelman got hurt and Brady had to hold the ball longer than 3 seconds. Edelman's presence presents a HUGE matchup mismatch for teams because they can no longer double Gronk without leaving another weapon wide open. Edelman's cuts make him nearly uncoverable.

    Save Patrick Peterson, I don't think there is a corner than can cover him 1-on-1... and even then it's tough. Can't use safety help on Edelman because he's not a downfield threat. So you use a LB. Which takes a top cover LB off the back (in this case White) and opens him up more. Since a team's best cover guy is USUALLY a corner, and usually on Edelman, you have a Nickle corner or safety on Gronk, and 1-on-1 on Amendola/LaFell, which is when they shine. Edelman is more dynamic than you're giving him credit for, and it's the matchups he creates that make him valuable. If he's at or close to 100% (which I doubt), it's a MASSIVE boost to Brady and that o-line. The o-line alone makes Edelman irreplaceable. Because neither Amendola nor LaFell can get open quick enough and thus, the line is exposed.

    Super Bowl favorites? I don't think so, but certainly favored in the AFC. I don't trust the QBs on any of the other teams outside PIT and Brown scares the shit out of me, especially with how the Patriots secondary has been burned recently. I am hoping that PIT gets knocked off by CIN, but whereas Dalton is not likely to play, or not be 100%, I don't know about that.

    I completely, 100% agree. In this rematch, I like the Cardinals, injuries notwithstanding.

    Edelman is a force, true, but I hope the team can get back to their aggressive style when he returns. They look so listless out there lately. It's amazing how much we have to bank on a guy that couldn't get a team to sign him a couple years ago.

    Oh, I completely agree. They've mailed it in the last 3 weeks or so. I hate the "we can't move the ball, especially through the air, without Edelman, so why throw" mentality with which McDaniels has been calling plays recently. I mean, I don't think McDaniels is that good to begin with, unlike a lot of others, but this solidifies it to me. I've seen worse teams do more with less receivers and they don't have Tom Brady.

    I think yesterday in particular was more a way to show they don't trust that o-line. And Vollmer being back isn't going ot miraculously make everyone else learn how to block. With Edelman, Gronk LaFell, Amendola, White and Brady all at or near 100%, I like the actual offense. That o-line, however, worries me.

    I assume the person to which you are referring at the end there is Jackson, but I don't think they are going to rely on him at all. Simply 10-15 snaps, around 10 carries and hoping for 30-40 yards and goal line and short yardage situations. I don't think they need or want him to be more.

    I'm happy for the Chiefs.

    And just kind of happily wallowing in the fact that Andy Reid is in and winning in the playoffs while Chip Kelly is fired

    Well, that was easy. I think the Chiefs are well placed to spring a surprise on NE/Denver, even if I wouldn't necessarily back them on percentages.

    I'm really frustrated at how lucky Pitt was to pull the Bengals sans Dalton. He was playing very well this year and I don't think this game goes like this with him in :/

    I'm glad the Steelers won because I don't want Burfict going insane and purposely trying to break Gronk's legs or kill one of out receivers.

    @BigDaddy @Spiner202 - good luck gentlemen. May the best team win next week.

    The NFL cares about player safety. If it's a quarterback. Or possibly a wide receiver. Other than that, good luck with your brain damage.
