One thing you can count on with the Detroit Lions is that they are never, ever boring. Follow the latest news including injuries, roster moves and more here daily from Oakland Press beat writer Paula Pasche. Plus you'll find regular commentary about the team.


Conference championship picks

If the Arizona Cardinals beat the Philadelphia Eagles today, the Lions, Saints and Browns will stand as the only pre-expansion teams never to have played in a Super Bowl. Not good company.

I don't think it's going to happen, though. The Cardinals lucked into six turnovers last week, and the hot Eagles won't be as generous today. Plus, Philadelphia's secondary is built to stop Arizona's passing game. This is why they paid big bucks for Asante Samuel last offseason.

In fact, I've got an all-Pennsylvania Super Bowl headed our way as I'm taking Pittsburgh in the AFC title game. That defense is too good. Not that Baltimore's isn't, but the Ravens are about to run out of gas.

Here's my picks against the spread. One last chance for me to embarrass myself in two weeks.

NFC championship game
Philadelphia minus-3 1/2 over ARIZONA

AFC championship game
PITTSBURGH minus-6 over Baltimore

Record: 2-2 last week, 125-124-6 overall
