LCB NFL Picks: Conference Championships

January 17, 2009


-4 Philadelphia Eagles (9-6-1 overall, 3-4-1 road) @ Arizona Cardinals (9-7 overall, 6-2 home) at 3:00 p.m. on Fox : Langston's Pick: The Eagles and Cardinals are on a magical postseason ride, one team resembled a bird lost on its way south for winter and the other has been lost for the past 60 years. Yet both teams found their way back on track with the rest of the playoff flock with great offense and enough defense. But which team will make it to the south before the cold hits and which one will get lost and decide to fly back home only to fight the frigid temperatures waiting to try the flight next year? With McNabb and Warner throwing the pigskin and fantastic skill players like Brian Westbrook and Larry Fitzgerald, these two teams have the talent needed to play for Lombardi's trophy. Both teams are skilled enough on defense to let their offenses win the game, but the Eagles are more equipped for their defense to win the game. If I was betting smartly, I put it all on the Eagles. But who wants to see a battle of the keystone state? I sure don't, I like my championships to be all encompassing of this great nation of ours. That is why I am picking Kurt and Larry to win this game for the Grand Canyon state and the Arizona Cardinals. LCG's Pick: I cannot abandon my second team, the Philadelphia Eagles, this far into the playoff race. Sure it's easy to root for a team whose lone championship came in Chicago sometime around the great depression and the new deal. But these are the Eagles we are talking about. And I think it's time a city other than Boston has multiple champions. Philly has a chance at being the new dynasty city, and it could be a wonderful thing. Especially if some of their championship mojo rubs off on DC.

+6 Baltimore Ravens (11-5 overall, 5-3 road) @ Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4 overall, 6-2 home) at 6:30 p.m. on CBS: Langston's Pick: The best rivalry in the NFL will always be the Cowboys and the Redskins, but the Ravens and the Steelers have been giving them a run for their money the past couple years now. With both teams boasting great defenses, great running games, and now both teams being led by two great young quarterbacks; this rivalry has gotten even better. I don't have a rooting interest in this game, but according to my playoff rooting system the Steelers are my team now. They are playing at home, have the best defense in the league, and have Roethlisberger. I like the Steelers to win this game, but the Ravens are talented enough to keep it close enough where this will be the greatest game of the postseason the Steelers won't cover. LCG's Pick: I like underdogs and a team with a rookie quarterback headed into the Steel city that already has 5 Super Bowl trophy's is probably as close to the definition as we are going to get for quite some time. I like the Ravens to win this game, encouraging Pittsburghs mayor to change his name back as soon as possible. Jump on the bandwagon Steelerstahl, its the Ravens year for triumph in the AFC.
