    How is Jets-Pats NOT on prime time? NFL screwed the pooch on that one. Mangini vs. Belichick in the Passive-Aggressive Bowl.

    Go Jets.

    Chiefs-Colts. Herm Edwards vs. Tony Dungy. I guess someone has to win that game, right?

    Giants-Eagles not on prime time, either. Kind of surprising that the NFL wouldn't have the Giants/Eagles as the 4 P.M. game on Sunday and the Jets/Pats game as the 8 P.M. game Saturday night.

    I think the Pats and Belichick are more concerned about the Jets than they want to let on. I also think that the Jets are going to be a tough out for anyone in the AFC.

    Would love to see the Jets beat the Pats, but I don't see it happening. Belichick will make Pennington beat the Pats deep. THAT'S not happening.

    And damn, Pats-Chargers in the second round. Belichick vs. Marty. No longer loving the idea of the Chargers in the Super Bowl.
  5. Um, my New York friends ... Cowboys will always get the prime time game based on the (debatable) assumption they move the dial more than any team.

    I think it had to be one or the other - one conference got the late games and the other the early ones (for both days); no splitting.

    I still can't believe Kansas City made it. And it would be just like the Chiefs, after choking away 13-3 seasons to the Colts in 1995 and 2003, to win in Indianapolis this year. With Larry Johnson, you never know.

    Not too happy about the 8 p.m. Cowboys game start because

    1) I'll be working
    2) It's near deadline
    3) I won't be drinking while watching it
    4) They'll probably lose anyway ...

    The very early line has the Pats as nine point favorites.

    If I had any money, I'd put some on the Jets.

    Especially with Larry Johnson against that run defense. I'm not a Chiefs fan, but I'll ride the bandwagon.

    I like the Chiefs' chances, too. Larry Johnson could realistically go over 200 yards against Indy, and it's tough to lose when your back does that.

    And because Indy's run defense sucks, BYH will get another chance to call Manning a fraud
