Dodged a bullet therePosted Tuesday, January 11, 2011, at 9:32 AM
So it appears my Karmic punishment for spending the year cheering for my favorite team's first round opponent was just nearly having a heart attack, not an actual loss.
God bless you, Tramon Williams.
As a non-Colts fan living in central Indiana, I sometimes like to talk smack, but I have nothing to say this week. Without an underrated cornerback outleaping the wideout there, the boys from Green Bay suffer the same fate as Indy: a last-second punch in the gut loss.
I feel for you, Colts fans. I really do. That's no way to go out.
I also had to eat some humble pie over the weekend, going 1-3 on my weekend picks and also losing one of my Super Bowl picks. (Seahawks over Saints?!? Really?) My lesson is, in the coming weeks, not to pick multiple rounds. One weekend at a time.
So here are my Division Round picks, which are all sure to fail:
Steelers 16, Ravens 13
Falcons 19, Green Bay 17
Bears 20, Seahawks 13
New England 33, New York Jets 24
Those are my picks. As a fan, I'd like to see three of these four games go the other way. If I go 4-0, I'll feel smart but unhappy come Monday.
But I never go 4-0.
