2011 NFL Playoff Results?

UPDATE 1/10/11:  Yep, I went 2-2 over the weekend (see below)…UPDATE 1/17/11: Another .500 weekend

On Monday morning, I often hear “Oh I knew the Bengals would upset the Packers,” or “I’d have won some big money if only I bet on the Chargers to cover the spread.”

More often than not, I am the one uttering those words.  According to myself, I’d have won at least $30 million by now, owned a villa in Milan, and bought my mother a Lamborghini Murcielago due to my genius sports prediction skills.

Now, I challenge myself in my 2011 NFL Playoff Predictor, created on January 4, 2011, 4 days until the actual NFL playoffs begin.

Now, I know I went with the #1 seeds in each Conference, and took the easy way out on Brady and the Pats, but let’s be honest you can’t stop Brady or Belichik.  It will be fun to see Boston College alum, Matt Ryan, lead his Falcons against the Boston’s beloved Patriots.  I’ll place my bets now, and look forward to driving my lambo on Feb 7.
