2006 Conference Championships Review

1-1 going into the last game of the year, but hey, that’s the way I want it, down to the wire, and my 3rd straight chance at .500 or better all revolves around this last game. But we’ll get to that next week. For now, lets see how 1-1 looked…

New Orleans Saints (+3) @ Chicago Bears:

Chicago came out with fists a pumping, then hit a little snag at the end of the 1st half and start of the 2nd, but then Reggie Bush taunted the Bears, and Drew Brees intentionally gave the Bears 2 free points and a possession after grounding the ball in his own end zone. And after Drew did that, the Bears didn’t allow another score for the rest of the contest. This game was closer than the score, but either way, the Saints couldn’t cover for me, as they lost 39-14.

New England Patriots @ Indianapolis Colts (-3):

The Colts held the line by just a point, but a point here and a point there have killed me all year, so I’ll take this win with a smile from ear to ear. The Colts looked as good as dead, but Peyton stepped up with a big 2 minute drill, and won the game for his Colts. And Tom Brady, well, when it came right down to it, he was the one who threw the interception to lose the game for his Patriots. Talk about a change of rolls. We’ll see if Peyton can complete the drill and get a Super Bowl win, so everyone can shut up about how he’s not a big game player.
