Before I watched the championship games, I watched scouts and general managers grab Senior Bowl prospects who were barely off the plane and sit them down for interviews. It's a reminder that everything we see in the playoffs is just a tip of the iceberg.

This is what happens when you write about the same quarterback matchup for your entire adult life, and also what happens when you write NFL previews while your second grader is studying for his Catholic sacraments.
There are links to some diagram articles. The Patriots and Seahawks diagrams are pretty basic, but the others have some detail.

A look ahead at some of next week's matchups, powered by this here Football Outsiders Premium Database and my own feverish late-season imagination.
Click around the Sports on Earth site to find a familiar face: draft guru Russ Lande has joined the SoE team! His article on Shrine Game superstars of the past decade is just the kickoff to four months of intense draft double coverage by Russ and I.

The Wild Card games get the "Instant Classic" treatment, and I go on and on about Andrew Luck's beard and Nick Foles' hair.

The Colts have used more players than any other NFL team, the 2013 Eagles look a lot like the 2012 Redskins, and the 49ers are over-relying on Anquan Boldin so they can snooker the Packers. All this AND Andy Dalton jokes.

Cam Newton stepped up. Others did not. Had a lot of fun watching film of the Dolphins offensive line and Cowboys secondary while prepping this piece. And by fun, I mean I never want to see either unit again.
