Wilson honestly thinks by "believing it" wins happen.

In fairness, Walsh did go to Georgia, so he's not used to succeeding with something of consequence on the line.

We're going to somehow end up with a Pittsburgh vs Seattle Super Bowl so that I can hate everything

Hard to say if it would've mattered, but there was plenty of time to spin the football. Also, it was the second time that he didn't spin it.

I was rooting against Seattle not a fan of them at all so them winning like this sucks. Minnesota needs to look into getting a new holder next season because that's twice that he held the laces out. That's pretty inexcusable in my opinion.

The laces! The laces!

It was a 27 yard FG, if a pro kicker misses that, it's because he choked, not because of the laces.

15-1, #1 seed, and the reward is having to beat the 2 time NFC champs, the hottest team in the league and the greatest QB/coach ever to win the Super Bowl. NE, meanwhile, gets KC without their best offensive player, then either an injury-decimated Steelers team, at home, or a decrepit Peyton Manning. That's fair.

I hate the Seahawks and Vikings so much. I'm glad that one of them got their heart ripped out instead of being let down easy.

Carolina. Their path has to be one of the hardest for a #1 seed I've ever seen. Just venting mostly, I think they're better than Seattle, but that game will be a dogfight.

I get you were venting, I was questioning the details.

I don't think DeSean Jackson understands that the ball needs to cross the line, not him.

One of the weird things I have always wanted to see is a Wild Card team hosting a playoff game. I absolutely don't want the Packers to win but if they did there'd be 4 wild card teams playing and a chance, especially in the AFC

The Packers can have this victory over dumbass racism so long as they are delivered a soul-crushing defeat next week.
