    I or someone will post the spread later in the week, right now, it's too goofy, IMO...

    Seattle(+8) @ Green Bay

    Jax(+12) @ New England

    San Diego(+8 1/2) @ Indy

    NY Giants(+7 1/2) @ Dallas

    I'd say out of the #1 & 2 seeds, Dallas has the biggest question marks with how Romo will perform and whether TO will play.

    Good point on Dallas, without Romo and TO they are toast.

    Say what you want about TO, but he's as tough as they come. He played in the Super Bowl with a broken leg. I don't think an ankle sprain will keep him out vs the Giants.

    Those point spreads are nuts. I voted for all the home teams to win. Against the spread, I'll go with Green Bay, Jax, San Diego, NYG.

    Agreed, I figured we could discuss against the spread later in the week. That's just the Opening Line.

    Would HGH have an impact on bones?

    I think it's more that TO will suspend pain and punishment for the big stage... his ego demands it.

    Tough? Those guys have access to a lot of really good painkillers.

    Just inject ambesol, close enough.

    disclaimer: Do not inject ambesol.

    After his recovery from the broken ankle several years ago, TO has earned the right to never have his toughness questioned. That being said however, a high ankle sprain is a completely different beast than a broken ankle. Hell, he would've been better off breaking a few bones: at least they can insert a few screws and a plate or two. Rest is the only means to recovery with a high ankle sprain.

    Indy over SD: by a mile

    Dallas over NYG: Barely

    I, even as a Seattle fan, can't believe that it's 8....@ Lambeau!!!

    That's pretty whack...even for early odds...

    A bunch of the bookies in Vegas were saying that the BCS Championship had changed from LSU +6 to LSU +4 and that 2 point swing was HUGE!!! I can only imagine what the swing is going to be in 3 days with these games...

    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.
    I took The Pats, The Cowboys, The Chargers and The Pack.

    I really don't think that the Giants can have 2 really good games in a row and the Colts are on a slide, if I remember correctly.

    I think the Giants are bringing Jessica with them...or whoever Romo's flavor of the week is.

    I'm cheering on the Seapigeons...I mean Seahawks.
