    Someone has to win in Wild Card Week. It's easy to let recency bias get you way more excited about those teams than you should. They rarely come through in the Divisional week.

    Yep. This guy is better than Rivers. Is having a career year. Reads defences like no one else. Has a killer reviving corps. Is well rested. And has something to prove.

    But they do come through often. It's the NFL playoffs not the nba. Rivers has been a pretty underrated QB in his career.

    Manning lost to Flacco last year. Anything can happen in a one game elimination.

    Oh sure anything can happen but the Bengals choke job against the Chargers last week shouldn't really change anyone's opinion on Rivers or the Chargers chances.

    Well yeah... one game doesn't really indicate anything but I always thought Rivers was a very good QB despite 2 mediocre seasons in a row prior to this year.

    I dont know what it is..because i usually like watching the great ones play (like Bonds or LeBron)..

    But i always watch Peyton in the playoffs and hope he chokes again. Maybe cause it was just so comical how great hed be in the season and just get butt raped in the playoffs.

    Only other guy ive been like that with is A-Rod and hes a douche. Nothing Peyton does wrong and hes got a great recent storyline..maybe hes dull?.. Idk why i root for him to choke.

    His SNL skit playing football with the kids is funniest sports skit ive ever seen

    Might be one of the last playoff Manning v. Brady, that's can't-miss football.

    I really hate the later starts for the playoffs games. It used to be both Saturday games in the Wildcard and Divisional playoffs were day games. The Conference Championships were day games as well. I have nothing to do all day until the game airs but by the time they do, I'm dealing with scheduling conflicts. There's nothing better to do on winter weekend afternoons then watch football. Put on the damn football.
