The first playoff game of the weekend is here, and it could be a good one. I say "could" because when these two teams met last month, the game did not live up to the hype. I have high hopes for the rematch, if for no other reason than the opportunity to make a parlor game out of how many times the announcers trumpet the excellence of Russell Wilson and Drew Brees while declaring that they have made any perceived height requirement for NFL QBs completely negligible in today's NFL.
