NFL: NFC Playoff Picks + Superbowl Pick

Seeds:

1. Seattle 2. Chicago 3. Carolina 4. NY Giants
WC1. Tampa Bay
WC2. Washington

I'm picking Washington to squeeze into the last wild-card spot, ahead of Minnesota, Atlanta and Dallas.

Wild Card Games:

Tampa Bay over NY Giants: The Giants' dream season comes to an end as Eli Manning is repeatedly pressured by the Tampa Bay rush and a worn-down Tiki Barber has too little left in the tank to carry them. Tampa Bay wins 20-14.

Carolina over Washington: In a game that's a lot closer than anticipated, Carolina squeezes out a 27-24 come-from-behind win, overcoming an early interception from Jake Delhomme. Washington puts up a strong fight but the limitations of their conservative passing game finally catches up to them.

Divisional Playoffs:

Seattle over Tampa Bay: Seattle and Shaun Alexander come storming out of the gate to take an early lead and force Chris Simms throw the ball. The result is a series of fatal mistakes by the Tampa Bay offense, as Seattle blows them out 28-10.

Carolina over Chicago: A team can only go so far with a rookie quarterback and without any offense to speak of. Carolina wins 17-6.

NFC Championship:

Seattle over Carolina: Tight game with strong performances from both offenses. Ultimately, Seattle's running game proves to be the difference as they trot out 27-23 winners.

Superbowl:

Indy over Seattle: Peyton Manning wins the big game, finally. Indy 31-20.

This site is so nice. Really i've been checkit for a wile. Here's some info about the Sony Ericsson tennis tournament history. If you like to visit my page it will be a pleasure. Or if know some one that likes to know about this, givethem this link. Will be nice to had some users like you with sites as good as yours. On August 29, 2006 Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications announced the signing of a four year contract worth $20 million to become the title sponsor of the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open is currently the largest tournament in the world with Title Sponsorship. When Butch Buchholz established the event in 1985, it marked the first time in 56 years that a new two-week tournament featuring men and women was launched. Located in Delray Beach (Laver’s International Tennis Center) in 1985 and Boca Raton (Boca West) in 1986, the tournament found a permanent home in 1987 on Miami’s Key Biscayne. In 1994, Miami-Dade County christened the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, a 30-acre expanse that is transformed each year from a public tennis facility into a full-fledged festival for the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open was awarded “Tournament of the Year” by the ATP for five consecutive years and seven of the last eight years and in 2004 by the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and is considered one of the most prestigious titles in professional tennis. In 1999, the tournament was purchased by IMG.
The only combined 12-day Tennis Masters Series event on the ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour calendar, the Sony Ericsson Open features the world's top-ranked pros - 96 men and 96 women in singles competition, and 32 men's teams and 32 women's teams in doubles action.
