Wow! What a Weekend!

Who needs the BCS and College Football? The NFL playoffs are far more exciting and mean a heck of a lot more than any bowl game. I didn't leave the house Saturday and Sunday, I was glued to the screen the whole time, well except maybe the fourth quarter of the Green Bay/Seattle game. Let's start right there with the first of four weekend games.
With Seattle jumping up to a 14-0 lead, you had to feel for Ryan Grant. If you turned away early and came back in the second half, don't adjust your tv set.

I know, I'm one of the few households in America without HDTV and this time, the snow on the screen wasn't from my crappy, out of date tv, but the actual conditions in Green Bay. The Pack came storming back and scored all the points they needed to win the game before half. As for Ryan Grant, he only brushed the two fumbles off his shoulder and set the franchise playoff game rushing record.
However for the Seahawks' Marcus Pollard, a lot of the blame might fall on him. The sure handed Pollard had a crucial fumble in the first half and then in the second half with Seattle trying to stay in the game, Pollard was wide open in the back of the end zone and dropped an easy TD reception. Upon further review, you could tell Pollard had a rough time seeing the ball coming through the snow.
