Thank goodness the NFL championship, unlike the BCS, isn't in the hands of sports writers.

For the much hyped Steelers-Ravens matchup, here is my analysis:

* Both defenses are dominant. No edge

* Both teams have good running games; slight edge to the Ravens

* Both teams have decent passing games; slight edge to the Steelers

* Significant advantage for Steelers at Q

With #7 tipping the scales, I like the Steelers in this one, but this a "Yoi! Double Yoi!" game, which means no one should bet it unless they enjoyed the Robert De Niro-Christopher Walken finale in The Deer Hunter.

Nevertheless, look for my picks against the spread later this week as I try to build on my playoff 3-1 record against the spread.
