To be honest, without having a rooting interest, I think I like the conference championship games better than the Super Bowl. You have two games of utmost importance, you don't have a two week build-up the leaves you wishing they would just play the stupid game already, you don't have to watch the game with people who have no clue what is going on.
It's football, pure and simple. 6 plus hours of exciting football watching. Plus, you can say things like, "I would have never guessed his name is Clancey Pendergast" when they show the Cardinals defensive coordinator.
Anyhow, my picks for this week are Arizona and Pittsburgh. Arizona has actually played a good game in the playoffs. I don't think you can say that about the Eagles. Their D was good on the short yardage stops against the Giants, but their O has been shaky. My only fear here is that the Cards can't run. I am a little more indecisive about the AFC game. I like the Ravens, but they seem a little banged up right now, including Jim Leonhard who concussed himself on the Crumpler fumble. I think Willie Parker will eat them up.
What are your thoughts?
