Football picks Round 1

Washington Redskins versus Tampa Bay Bucs

Nothing against the Redskins, but the Bucs have an x factor in that of Cadillac Williams. The Redskins can put up a bunch of points but they are going to have trouble with Simeon Rice and Derrick Brooks. The Redskin defense has been hot and cold this year as some show of the Hogs of old and some games are ridiculous.

Jacksonville Jaguars versus New England Patroits

Again similar aspects. I am going against my better judgement to pick the Jags just because of Byron Leftwich and Jacksonville's D.

Carolina Panthers versus NY Giants

This is basically because I think Eli will fold under the pressure of a first playoff game. Nothing else.

Pittsburgh Steelers versus Cincinnati Bengals

I feel the Steelers just have momentum on this one. With Big Ben at the helm they just play well. Plus I feel the Steeler big D is going to show up big for this one. Cinci has some amazing big play potential and a solid offense, but their defense depends on turnovers that Pittsburgh tends to not give away.

Yeah, but you were really really right about the G-men, so I think it counts extra. Its too late for it to count, but who's your "Insert Superlative Description Here" Bowl pick?
