That picture pretty much sums up my feelings about how the Divisional Playoffs went with Drew Brees and the Saints knocked out by the Niners after one of the great all-time playoff games.  Maybe Drew can take the time to try his hand at television in the meantime if the opportunity arises as we suggested yesterday.  Alas, the Playoffs go on with Championship Sunday just five days away.  The AFC game goes first from New England followed by the NFC game in San Francisco.  Also note the interesting Pro Bowl announcing team NBC has lined up.  Dan Hicks joins Mike Mayock and Doug Flutie on play by play instead of Tom Hammond from Hawaii.  At least Brees and Rodgers can have their shootout there.
