    Hogan's shoulder injury was obviously a lot more serious than the Patriots let on. From Weenieworld:

    Chris Hogan (shoulder) remained limited at Wednesday's practice.

    With four white WR's left in the playoffs for the second year in a row will the gods of fate smile down upon us? As a naturally born pessimist I have trouble visualizing it.

    I am especially concerned about the Vikings this Sunday. After enduring two broadsides last week with the elimination of CM and Cooper Kupp I will be very upset if the Vikings fall to the Saints. A Saints/Falcons NFC Championship game would depress the hell out of me.

    The other three games seem like chalk. Sure one team could pull an upset but if I were a betting man the ticket would read Steelers, Falcons and Pats. I would have really been psyched this weekend if Carolina and the Rams had advanced but if the Pats and Vikings advance it will keep me engaged. My sanity depends on it.

    I watched the NFL for the first time all year last week and the Falcons seemed relatively white to me (8 starters). At least as white as the Rams. A Vikings/Falcons championship game might be the whitest NFC championship game since the 1980s!

    Agreed. Nice to see you back here again btw. I don't mind the Saints either, if not for injuries on defense to Klein and Anzalone they would have eight or so White starters. As it is Anzalone and Trey Hendrickson should be budding stars next season. And Drew Brees is an all-time great. If only Sean Payton would end his policy against White receivers, New Orleans would be a team to root for.

    I'm going to start a new thread for this weekend's games as the wildcard games were last week.
