2011 NFL Conference Championship Picks

January 20, 2011

NFC Championship: Packers (6) @ Bears (2)

 

Chase: As much as it pains me to say this. I’m gunna have to pick the Packers in this one. Aaron Rodgers is on fire and I’m still waiting for bad Jay Cutler to show up. Brett Favre Jr. Jr… Packers secondary is too good, and won’t drop the interception opportunities like the Seahawks. Woodson is good for one, Williams might be good for two, and you never know what Clay Matthews is capable of doing.

 

Prince: Cheeseheads, Da Bears, who cares? The Dolphins are at home… Am I the only one noticing Aaron Rodgers is lighting it up. Packers by 17… Just can’t stop thinking Nnamdi Asomugha is a free agent.

 

Fisch: I’m going with the second fastest quarterback in the Rodgers family, Aaron Rodgers. He won’t be able to shake and bake defenders like he did in Atlanta due to the bad turf, so instead of putting up 48 points, he’ll only be able to put up 38. Packers Defense will have at least 3 pics, one of them to the house. Cutler gets booed off the field in the fourth quarter after throwing the dagger.

 

Chase: Packers 30 – Bears 21

Prince: Packers 35 – Bears 17

Fisch: Packers 38 – Bears 17

 

AFC Championship: Jets (6) @ Steelers (2)

 

Chase: How can you go against Big Ben? He goes off every game. He can’t be sacked, but I think it’s the Jets’ year. Mike Wallace will be on Revis Island.

 

Prince: Revis won’t cover Ward, he’s too old. When’s the last time you’ve seen him make him a play over 15 yards?

 

Fisch: I’ve seen him run over Ed Reed!

 

Chase: The rest of the receivers will be on Cromartie Coast, and it will come down to if Bart Scott and the Jets defense can sack Big Ben. I’m taking the Jets by a foot. Just playing.

 

Prince: It’s good to know that the New York Football Jets travel with a fireman, the fireman, because the Jets are gunna burn Terrible Towels this weekend. Ben, tell all your receivers sorry, because by beating the Ravens you got all your receivers a vacation on Revis Island! J-E-T-S JETS JETS JETS! Go Green!

 

Fisch: I don’t even deserve to pick this game after I picked the Pats to blow out the Jets last week. I’ll go with the Jets losing again, as I have a hard time seeing the Jets beating Big Ben. He’s just a winner. Simple as that.

 

Chase: Jets 24 – Steelers 14

Prince: Jets 16 – Steelers 10

Fisch: Steelers 23 – Jets 20

 

2011 NFL Divisional Playoffs

January 15, 2011

Seahawks (4) @ Bears (2)

 

Chase: Good Jay Cutler or bad Jay Cutler? Good Brett Favre or bad Brett Favre? All one in the same. Or maybe they’re not. We would have to ask Jenn Sterger. Or maybe we could text her. I may need to upgrade my data plan. I think Cutler’s due, for a bad game that is.

 

Fisch: I agree with you on the Sterger aspect of things, but even if Cutler shoots himself in the foot with his gunslinger mentality, the Bears defense will be there to stop the...

The Miami Triumvirate

July 10, 2010
After all the shananigans, Pat Riley has pulled off something once thought to be a dream. I can't believe athletes have finally realized that for a little less money, you can work together and win championships. Too bad the city of Miami doesn't deserve it.

Miami might take the title for fakest city in America. True fans in this city are hard to find, or maybe I'm just biased because in Green Bay, there's a 50+ year waiting list for season tickets to sit in freezing weather to wear a ...

Keep active!

February 23, 2010
Everybody athlete or not should make an attempt to stay active.  I encourage my athletes to run everyday wether they are in season and most certainly in their off season.  They should also incorporate stretching and some core work.  Now for my non athlete I suggest the same; daily running and stretching and core work as a base in their workout regimen then as they build their fitness level add new activities ie,  swimming, biking or a spin class yoga or even a rec sport in a local league!!  M...

Hydrate!

October 29, 2009
Have you had a drink today? Remember hydration is an active part of your workout regimen even when your not on the field.  Sports drinks are excellent while in practice or competition but during periods of non-activity water is your best option.  Keys to getting your recommended H2O Intake....... Try to drink a glass of water with every meal. Students, make use of those water fountains in school and sip a little every chance you get. No fountains? Utilize coolers and water bottles. Anther imp...
