Aye

Eagles might surprise a few, depends on whether they run well and dont turn i over. Which Foles will turn up?

Minnesota v New Orleans is an absolute belter of a game.

Unless Pittsburgh fire in attack and play man coverage v Brady (and rough him up a bit!) it's a Minnesota v New England in final at Minnesota. Woof!!

Yeah, I think a few weeks ago prior to Carson Wentz getting injured this would of been a no brainer - the Eagles looked great.

Now Atlanta seem to be putting together a run at the right time and are getting their key guys like Julio Jones fit.

Be very close I reckon, maybe just a touchdown or less in it.

What was the Saints safety doing on that Vikings winning touchdown? Even I could have done better than that!

Was that the number 43?  I think he had a brain fart and didn't want to give a penalty and yards for a mistimed tackle.

If that was the case then it is ironic as he ended up mistiming the tackle and missed it!

What are everyone's predictions for the championship games? The Patriots will win the AFC and although I would like to see the Vikings win and play a home Super Bowl I have to go for home advantage with the Eagles.

Patriots have a fragility about them.... but I wouldn't back against them.

When it first hit our screens in the strike ridden 82 season.... John Riggins n'all that... I formed an attachment to new England. They were sheeite.... and although they got to a superbowl from a wild card spot they got thumped by Walter Payton et al.

So to see them develop into the force they now are takes some digesting.

I remember when they had to field Steve grogan at QB and everyone said he was way too old. Brady is about 8 years older😁

John Riggins is the man. :clapping:

He once thumbed a lift to the NFC Championship game because he’d missed the team bus after a wild night.

A real character and a rebel.

Forget which teammate said this:

”They say some people march to the beat of their own drummer.  John had an entire band.”

😃

He was a big lad..... I saw an interview with him. Nearly 70 and still nuts😊

A fragility? Do they?

Interestingly, they're perfectly placed as the team everyone loves to hate as the other 3 have never won a league.

You have to fancy a New England - Minnesota final.Minnesota playing it at home makes it a 50/50 game.

Day off booked - the wife took me to Bangkok to watch it last year. Aiming for a similar weekend.

They were very shakeyat the beginnng of the season and have big misses in Julian Edleman and Dont'a Hightower.

They won some squeakers this year on the back of Brady's throwing .... games they could easily have lost. Patriots record this season should not be as good as it is.... it's testimony to their resilience that it is.

The issue is there is no other stand out. The Steelers imploded.... again.... and Rotjlesberger had a mare last weekend.

Jax have their tails up. Can they replicate what Miami did when form suggested otherwise?
