Expert Picks For Wild Card Weekend

January 3rd, 2009

What fun would the start of the playoffs be without quality prognostications from a handful of your favorite NFL authorities?

So get your bookie on the phone early; Joe hereby presents some sure-fire winners. The only problem is there is no true consensus among our esteemed panel below.

Most like the Ravens to roll into Miami and overwhelm the Dolphins with defense. Jeff Carlson, former Bucs quarterback and professional quarterback coach, says Ravens rookie QB Joe Flacco is the real deal. The Eagles got the most attention. Only Steve Isbitts, JoeBucsFan executive editor, thinks Adrian Peterson is enough of a stud to carry the Vikings to the NFC semifinals. Justin Pawlowski, a former Division I offensive lineman and host of The Blitz on 620 AM, believes Peyton Manning will pick apart the Chargers’ secondary en route to a commanding victory.

Bobby Fenton, host of The Free Stretch on WQYK-AM 1010 Sports Radio, also belives the Colts will get a win over the Chargers.

Everyone’s picks are laid out below. Best Bets are in bold. Joe will praise and harrass our experts accordingly on Monday.
