Here are Mike Tanier's previews of the two championship games. Once again, we remind you that the AFC Championship is making most people into complete morons, and therefore we have given up on policing the message boards this week. We're sure plenty of people will find plenty to complain about here -- although, to be honest, there really haven't been many bitter Bears and Saints fans around, have there?

Everyone knows that the Colts run defense stinks. But we've studied the tape to find out why. Mike Tanier breaks down several running plays that have worked against the Colts and looks for the reasons behind their defensive collapse. It turns out that there is no shortage of culprits.

Get ready for the offensive shows in Seattle and Indianapolis, Eric Mangini and Bill Belichick don't like each other, and didn't we just write about the Eagles and Giants a couple of weeks ago?
