The problem is that once more, it looks like the Piranha of the Serengeti are facing some possible matchup problems in the first round of the playoffs – yes, this is the point at which I’m seriously second-guessing the trade that swapped Peyton Manning, Frank Gore, and Marcus Colston for Kurt Warner, Clinton Portis, and DeSean Jackson. If Portis were healthy, I’d be looking great right now, but as it stands, I’m going to be dependent upon Green Bay beating up Jacksonville on the road. Which, given the 28th-ranked Jaguars defense, is hardly unthinkable, but I’d be a lot more comfortable if four of my eggs – QB, RB, WR, WR – weren’t all in that single basket.
