January 18th Winner: OZPUNK

Perhaps T.O. will show up in Arizona and tearfully apologize to Andy and Donovan and ask to be traded back to Philly?

Cards Win? That'd Be Surprising

In a postseason full of the unexpected, the most shocking scenario would be Arizona beating Philadelphia in the NFC championship game.

The Year of Surprise

Perhaps, the biggest surprise now would be no surprise at all.

Throwing Surprise Party

With two sixth seeds and the Cardinals still alive, at this point, nothing would surprise me.

January 16th Winner: Dalian China Knows Football

Pioli wants to get out from under the skirt of Belichick, and wave his own magic wand. This is a great move for all concerned, save poor Herman. Stick a fork in him, he's so done!

Four Teams, Four Surprises

There are quite a few things that bear watching on Championship weekend, as under the radar as they may be.

Kurt, but Gracious

Donovan McNabb is supposed to be here, Kurt Warner is not.

Balancing Ego

A player in the NFL is blessed with incredible riches: fame, fortune and adulation. With these riches come many certainties: pain, criticism, disappointment and public failure.

Keep Dreaming Donovan

If McNabb had faced the adversity that Kurt Warner has, he might be bagging groceries instead of playing in the NFC Championship Game this Sunday.

Resilience Is Relative

It is important to consider that individual responses to stress may be, at least in part, innate.

Warner Is the Winner

The great thing about Warner's story is that he's come back from obscurity twice.

Of Rave Concern

I'm taking James Harrison and Troy Polamalu over Ray Lewis and Ed Reed.

Steelers' Slight Edge

You couldn't put a thin piece of paper between the NFL's two best defenses, but I think that the Steelers' leaders have the slight edge.

Cards Can't Deal

Why is it that when I hear the words Arizona Cardinals and Super Bowl I think of the words of John McEnroe, as in: "You cannot be serious!"

Cards Can Do

Do the Cardinals stand a chance? Is Pam Oliver the best sideline reporter in the biz?

House of Cards

Enjoy this feel-good moment for now Arizona, because it ends on Sunday.

Cards of Chance

Questioning Arizona's ability to win the NFC Championship and considering them to be frauds is irresponsible

January 13th Winner: GRATIANUS

It's too much to say Plax is to blame for the Giants losing, but he certainly shares the blame.

When Will Tony Dungy Come Back?

Sure, he says he's done, but how long will it be until Tony Dungy changes his mind? VOTE HERE

Momentum Beats Location

I don't think it's as much about home field becoming meaningless as it is momentum becoming far more meaningful.

Home Sick

It's not about where you play, but how you play.

Was It Plaxico's Fault?

If Plaxico Burress hadn't shot himself in the leg, would the Giants still be in the playoffs?
