Our Conference Championship game picks

I'll admit it. I drank a little too much green Ecto Cooler last week.

Seahawks as a best bet? Silly me, although I was only a half-point off, as Da Bears only won by 11 courtesy of garbahhhhge touchdowns by Seattle.

This week. I learned my lesson -- go with the hot hands.

It doesn't get much hotter than Aaron Rodgers, who had just five incompletions last week in Atlanta. As for the Jets, well, you know there story.

Anyway, before I get to this week's picks, a couple of shamless picks. Here is my segment from this morning's Schick and Nick Show on ESPN 1620 The Zone in Omaha (the guys were very happy because Mike & Mike gave them a plug this morning).

Also, I'll be your live blog host for Jets-Steelers on Sunday. Be sure to follow along with that here on The Boone Docks.
