Wild Card Playoffs Wrap-up
Wild Card Playoffs: 4-0
Playoffs Overall: 4-0
Nice start, huh? You know you had a good round of games when the Dumbest Thing I Said Last Week feature must necessarily come from a game you picked correctly.
The Smartest Thing I Said Last Week:
Sure, last year's Cowboys came into a playoff game in Seattle at 9-7 and would have beaten the Seahawks had Tony Romo not bobbled a snap on a field goal attempt in the 4th quarter. But this year's Redskins are not last year's Cowboys. By definition.
The Seahawks are 7-1 at home this season (the "1" being a weird hiccup against a Saints team that went on to put together a four-game win streak that ended with a 41-24 slaughter of Jacksonville), and I don't see the Redskins coming in and giving them too much of a game.
The Dumbest Thing I Said Last Week:
[I]f any team is due for a playoff win, isn't it the Giants?
[The Chargers were way more due for a playoff win, it turns out]
