    Seattle@ Falcons - Falcons.

    Homefield advantage, explosive offence.

    Texans @ Patriots - Pats.

    So strong at home. Brady on form will be too good. They need to protect him though, but the ball moves so quickly out of his hands he should avoid a pummeling.

    Packers @ Cowboys - Packers

    (but that is dependent on injuries and knocks etc.) At fullish strength I take the Packers.


    Steelers @ Chiefs - Chiefs. Very strong at home, great defence.

    Tune in to the Patriots game on Saturday and you'll hear all the same superlatives.

    I think its a nice matchup for GB, Dallas coming off a bye could be out of the swing of things.

    I think you'll lose to Seattle in the Championship game if that makes you feel better?

    Did you see Washington have released 4 coaches following their failure to make the playoffs. Defence staff got a real hammering.

    Yea, I think it was bound to happen, get a new coach in, give him the top 3 draft picks, and some cap space, need to be more balanced, defence needs a lot of work but a breath of fresh air in the coaching dept had to be the priority, there is talent in the defence its the play calling that has baffled at times this year, % of 3rd down stops has to lie at the door of the defensive co-ord.

    Junior Galette is due to be back next season back after two years of injuries following his move from NO where he had a couple of impressive years.
    Sua Cravens moving to strong safety which he believes is his best position should make him a better player next year and strengthen the secondary,

    When AR has led his team to 4 superbowls with 3 superbowl MVP awards then we can have this conversation, until then AR will always be in the shadow.

    Brady made the all pro 2nd string this year behind Matt Ryan having only played 12 games, he got 3 times more votes than the so called greatest QB in the world who played 4 games more!

    Voted for by the AP may I add, people who know what they are talking about.

    Need to improve on the pass rush too. Only Kerrigan looks a true great threat in pressurising the QB.

    nfl.com (media):

    That was vintage Aaron Rodgers right there. He's the story. The best and most talented quarterback in the NFL today played brilliant

    The operative word being "today", which you've handily not put in bold. So he was the best and most talented out AR, Ben R, Eli and the guy from Miami. Score.

    Rodgers might be in the discussion for second best QB currently but Brady is in a whole different conversation with the likes of Montana, Manning and Bradshaw, Brady is a legend of the game, AR is a very good player but will never be in the conversation of best ever.

    dont back track. you really meant that lmao

    stop making it worse. now AR wont ever be considered one of the all time greats even though hes better than one of the all time greats(and cheaters) right now

    you cant make this up

    its quite sad really, you were a good poster but ive had to show you up so bad, it pains me to do this.

    I do personally think Rodgers will go down as one of the all time greats, but I don't think he is there just quite yet.

    A super bowl ring this season will go a long way to helping up upon the pedestal.

    Brady is already there. I do hope he retires very soon though. He's knocking on a bit now and I would much prefer him to finish right at the top rather than have his star in the wane.

    Manning at the end was just not the same player and Denver were carried to the crown on the shirt tails of their very impressive defence.

    well brady needed to cheat so how do we know he didnt cheat all his other sb? pats would win even with me as qb lets be honest

    lol ok i jest. i have always said rodgers deserves to be a multiple superbowl winner but either way it wont cvhange anything for me as if he was patriot they would be even more dominant than they have been imo

    Brady has benefited from a better team around him. This shows when the Pats still win games without him. Whenever Rodgers is out the Packers generally lose.

    Not saying Brady isn't up there but he has had greater opportunity. Rodgers generally carries Green Bay.

    This weekend....

    Falcons to beat Seahawks. Hawks not what they have been in the past. Not got a good record on the road. Easiest pick of the week!

    Packers to beat Cowboys. Rodgers on fire. Packers are the form team and will (hopefully) just edge this one.

    Patriots to beat Texans. This won't be as one sided as some think but Texans will be let down by their lack of Offense.

    Chiefs to beat Steelers. Home field advantage makes all the difference here. Expect this to be tight.

    Ah, so exactly the same predictions as me!!

    The only one I am not so confident on is the Packers and that is just down to how much last weekend's game has taken out of them in terms of injuries.

    If they are reasonably fighting fit I think Rodgers will be too strong for Dallas. Again the key is the protection they offer him. Protect Rodgers, win the the game.

    I think the Packers would then go on to beat the Falcons too.

    Kansas
    New England

    Then a Green Bay-Kansas City Super Bowl because there's still a twist to come somewhere

    Brady is playing as well now than he did was 10 years ago though, in Manning's final years you could see his body was falling apart, Brady looks as good as ever. Last season Manning was carried to the SB, this year Brady is marching his team in that direction.

    I would doubt it. Rib injuries usually take weeks to heal.

    I had badly bruised ribs and was in agony for at least 3 weeks. Really painful with any quick movement.

    Maybe they will drug him up, but I would say he won't make it.

    Get the feeling now it could be a Kansas City v Green Bay final, but not getting ahead of myself yet.

    I do think the Pack will beat Dallas and that there will be wins for the Falcons, Pats and Chiefs this weekend.

    Definitely rooting for Green Bay this week again, as I really dislike Dallas with a vengeance. ;)

    I'm going to be the bigger person and dismiss your derogatory comments.

    As for seeing GB as outsiders, that tells me all I need to know about you.

    For all the other games I'm basically rooting for not the Cowboys or Pats, although the dream scenario would be to win the whole thing with a last minute pick off a potential Brady winner. Exorcise those demons
