The NFL playoffs are upon us once again, and I will be pulling for the Cowboys (big surprise). As a public service to you, I am posting a playoff bracket that you can use to follow the games if you are so inclined. Here it is in both WORD and PDF formats.

One more thing, here’s the official Superbowl XLII website: www.nfl.com/superbowl.
And here is the official website of the SuperBowl XLII Champs:
Only a thug would support a team that fired Tom Landry. 😛
Watch out Denny! Your support of the non-kosher game of American football is making you lose friends amongst the liberal Episcopalians.
Mr. Denny – Take a look at your bracket setup, I happened to notice that its incorrect. If the Redskins win they will then play Dallas in the Divisional Playoffs not Green Bay. Switch em’ up.
I was excited because I thought you had come up with an interesting way to draw a bracket in which the highest seed always plays the lowest seed!
What a bummer! Your bracket, of course, falls apart if Tennessee or Washington wins (and Washington will win).
Here’s the source for my bracket: http://sportsline.com/nfl/standings/playoffrace/bracket .
Are you sure it’s wrong?
The problem is that it’s not a true bracket. After the wild card games, the lowest remaining seed plays the #1, while the higher remaining seed plays the #2. Example: #3 Seattle vs. #6 Washington in the NFC. If Seattle wins, they play #2 Green Bay, while the winner of #4 vs. #5 goes to Dallas, being the lower seed. If Washington wins, they go to Dallas (being the lowest seed) and the #4/#5 winner goes to Green Bay, becoming the higher seed. Kinda confusing, but there it is.
Hard to draw a bracket like that. There needs to be an asterisk with an explanation on it somewhere.
By the way…bring it on ‘Skins! 🙂
Whoops, Denny didn’t read the fine print over at CBS! From the bottom of the bracket page:
“…The NFL playoffs are not based on a pure bracket system. In the divisional playoffs, the No. 1 seed is assured of playing the lowest-seeded Wild Card survivor. There are no restrictions on intra-division games and the higher seed of any matchup will have home-field advantage.”
Okay, fellas. I guess you all did me the public service!
I’ve fixed the brackets, so you can check them out now.
Upsets galore this weekend:
3 away teams will win: Jacksonville, Washington, and NY Giants.
NFC championship prediction:
Green Bay at Dallas … Green Bay wins.
(Hard to beat Brett F twice in one season (unless you are Chicago))
They didn’t beat Brett F last time. Also, Brett F has never won in Dallas (0 for 8 1/2)
Thanks for the bracket!
If the Dallas defense gets it together and step it up, Dallas can reach the Super Bowl…..Anything less, means an early exit.
The Cowboys finished 13-3, but have played more like a 9-7 team. I’ve been a Dallas fan since 1971 and in my opinion, their best season had to be the 1977 season. They finished at 12-2 and won SB XII over Denver.
