Hot Clicks: NFL playoffs recap; Stacy Keibler

What. A. Weekend.

It's impossible to know where to begin after that weekend of playoff football. While Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick put on a show Saturday night and the Patriots dismissed the Texans in typical Patriots fashion Sunday, it was Ravens-Broncos and Seahawks-Falcons that will remembered as classics. We'll start with Atlanta's last-second win over Seattle. Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez had one of the more impressive one-yard touchdown catches you'll ever see, caught the pass that led to the game-winning field goal, and bawled his eyes out after winning a playoff game for the first time in his 16-year career. Not a bad day at the office. Fox analyst Brian Billick, however, had a very bad day at the office. With 44 seconds left and Seattle down by six, Billick suggested the Seahawks could kick a field goal and then try an onside kick. That was easily the most bizarre thing said on a broadcast this season -- and maybe ever. Billick also had trouble figuring out which team won the game. As we all know, Atlanta won the game, because Seahawks coach Pete Carroll tried the icing the kicker crap and it backfired after Matt Bryant missed his original kick, but nailed the 49-yarder for the victory on his second try.
Way More Clueless Than Billick
Obviously, you can blame the Broncos secondary for giving up a ridiculous game-tying 70-yard touchdown with 31 seconds left or Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning for throwing a Brett Favre-like interception in overtime in Denver's double-overtime lost to Baltimore. However, nobody had a worse weekend than Denver coach John Fox. First, he had Manning take a knee with 36 seconds left and three timeouts in the first half. Then, he had Manning take a knee with 30 seconds left and two timeouts at the end of regulation when all his team needed was a field goal to win. He actually made the incompetent refs who worked that game look intelligent.

A fan tried one of those halfcourt shots for money at Friday's Hawks game. You have to see the attempt to believe what happened.
