Meh, Luck doesn't benefit from a good line. He has some playmakers, but they're all undersized. His best receiver is 34 years old. I can see the way he plays and handles himself on the field and I can just tell the guy is going to be good. I'm not saying he's the "next ______" but I think we'll be seeing him in the postseason again.
Both RG3 and Wilson look a lot more electrifying, and while I don't know about Wilson long term, RG3 looks better to me than Luck on the eye test. I do worry about RG3's durability, however. Wilson has a decent chance to get to the Super Bowl this season, so you never know.
I'll be happy either way. I'd honestly rather see us face Denver as the Brady-Peyton rivalry is there on display, but we'd be at home against the Ravens, so I don't know.

It's technically not the NFL, although it is football, but Alabama massacres Notre Dame 42-14 to win their 10th National Championship and their third in four years.
I'm looking forward to seeing some of this Alabama talent in the NFL. Manti Te'o was pretty much ineffective.

RG3 has apparently at least partially torn his LCL and ACL. Ouch!
And thus all the "Alabama could beat <Insert Shitty NFL Team>" will begin again
This is just more evidence that a BCS playoff is essential.

Oh, and the Redskins coaching staff seem shadier and shadier...
Yeah, a BCS playoff is completely necessarily. This was not a championship caliber game. Last year, Alabama played horribly in the first game against LSU, but then picked it up for the title game and shut them out, which proved that a playoff is really necessary.

So, about that Manti Te'o thing, Gary. How are you feeling about his pro prospect after this woeful performance by him and the entire team? It's not just that Alabama beat them, Te'o himself just looked outmatched by some of the Bama players, and if he can't do anything against players who are going to go to the NFL, good luck doing things against hardened NFL veterans.
I didn't watch enough of it to have an opinion really. ND was just outclassed period. I don't think one player can make that much of an impact when you're getting destroyed. We'll see with Pro Days and the Combine where he gets slotted.
Alright gents who y'all got winning today!?
Lets see some predictions.
We run the ball better than Denver, that's our only hope. I think the cold weather thing doesn't really benefit anyone, unless one is a dome team. Yeah, Peyton played half of his games in a dome up until this season...and yeah, he doesn't have a good record in games with this kind of weather, but I don't know.
I think Green Bay will probably win the late game.
Right, my picks are Broncos 30-17 over the Ravens and GB by a field goal over San Fran.
In tomorrow's game, I just have no belief in the the Falcons in the playoffs, so I'll pick the Seahawks there. In the game up in NE, I'm really quite worried that this is shades of the 2010 Jets playoff loss (that was a 45-3 win in December, and then that like 28-20/21 loss in the playoffs) or even the first SB against the Giants where we won in the regular season, but lost in the playoffs. I don't know. It could go either way.
Go Denver, NE ( Fuck the Texans), GB, and Seattle.
What a game.....

What a game....I can't remember a game the Ravens have played in that rivals this
