So far 2 so called elite quarterbacks have been knocked out of the playoffs. Those 2 quarterbacks are Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers. The shocker has to be that Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers got eliminated in their first playoff game after going 15 and 1 for the season. Congrats to the four teams left in the quest for the Superbowl which include the Baltimore Ravens, New England Patriots, San Francisco 49ers, and the New York Giants.

I just watched the Saints vs Colts game and the New Orleans Saints slaughtered the Colts by a score of 62 to 7. The Saints just got finished kicking the Colts asses on both sides of the ball. Dree Brees completed like 88% of his passes against the Colts and threw for 5 touchdowns. I bet it sucks to be a Colts fan right now. Click

The Seattle Seahawks upset the defending Superbowl Champion New Orleans Saints today in a high scoring battle.
