Where can I find legitimate information about Iranian public opinion on various issues?
I'm writing a post Friday morning for my blog about how the US ought to deal with Iran, and I want to approach the issue from understanding how Iranians feel about their nuclear program, the United States, the rest of the Arab world, etc. And I need useful, unbiased information. Where would I get that?

NFL Pick: 'em: Wild Card Weekend--Get It Right Or Go Home! ;)
12 teams, 1 mission...

And so the playoffs begin, and in the spirit of the playoff feel, a bit of a twist to the Pick 'em formula--you must AT LEAST break even (get 2/4 games right, or more) to stay in...3 strikes, you're out! Let's see how many make it all the way to the Super Bowl. So--4 games, 8 teams, 1 gluteus to its maximus...Pick 'em!

Seven penalties, 64 yards really isn't that bad. Houston won today with 5 for 87 yards. And last time they were in NO, the Lions had 11 for 107.
SacredDigits (120 D)

In fact...64 yards is pretty close to the 49ers' season average.

http://www.teamrankings.com/nfl/stat/penalty-yards-per-game

Who are...fourth in penalty yards this year. Yes, you're right, the Lions do have 3.8 yards per game to trim off before they get to that vaunted Niner level of discipline.

NY Giants #9 in least penalties....so Coughlin is good for something haha
SacredDigits (120 D)
08 Jan 12 UTC
Another thing that gets overlooked in the "second most penalties to only the Raiders" is that the gap between the Lions and Raiders is the biggest gap between any two teams, 17.9 yards per game. To put it in perspective, that's larger than the gap between the Lions and the Giants, who give the 9th fewest. The Lions are within 5 yards per game of 5 other teams (including the aforementioned 49ers).

Well, 3/3 so far, looking to make it a clean sweep if the Steelers can crush Tebow...

So, next weekend, Divisional Round:

4 Giants @ 1 Packers
3 Saints @ 2 49ers
3 Texans @ 2 Ravens

And then 5 Steelers/4 Broncos @ 1 Patriots

Tebow Time AGAIN! O.O

DAMN...gritty comeback by the Steelers to tie it, and it all goes up in smoke on the first pass of OT!

NOW I have to choose to root for Tebow or Brady...I hate them both!
Kochevnik (1160 D)
09 Jan 12 UTC
That was some ending. Can't believe that he did it again. Although, I have to say, he actually looked decent all game, for once, not just in the last few minutes. It was actually a very enjoyable game to watch, for the neutral.

I'm 1/4, only getting the Saints right, so I guess I'm out. Am I the only one?

I like the Mannings.
And I like Brees.

But this weekend, I shan't root for him...

But rather, for Willis, for the D, for Gore, Crabtree, the Smiths, and a LOT OF WIND AND RAIN! (PLEASE!)

Giants@Packers, with two teams on a roll meeting head on *at the Frozen Tundra of Laaaaaambeua Field!
goldfinger0303 (657 D)
09 Jan 12 UTC
Well, I'm 2/2. Does that mean that I go to next week as well?

And obi, I hate to break it to you...but most often the high powered offense beats that high powered defense. Pray for the wind and rain!

But on a side note, woe to any offensive line that faces the Giants pass rush! Matt Ryan was being eaten up ALL DAY. I just want to say this on here, because I can't believe it...the Giants defense SHUT OUT THE FALCONS OFFENSE. I mean holy crap, I've NEVER seen the defense play that good. And if only the offense had gotten moving in the first half, it would've been 38-2 easily by the final whistle. Falcons got stomped, and the G-men are looking to repeat their last playoff appearance at Green Bay.

I'm so bummed about the Bengals... But at least they actually *made* the playoffs (albeit by being a wildcard, but still). Major improvement this year that will hopefully contribute to more improvement in the coming years.
jmeyersd (4230 D)
09 Jan 12 UTC
frickity-frick-frick-frick! i really didn't want the giants. the one team i'm afraid of. straight-up we're the much better team, but the giants have this bizarre propensity for upsets.

@Draugnar
That was a great spot for the bengals to finish at, considering they weren't all that good this year (beat only 1 team with winning record, i think?). the future is bright now, though, with aj green and a young defense. there will probably be a point in the next few years when pit/bal will have to rebuild, so there might be a window.
I seem to remember picking...

Atlanta over New York (0/1)
New Orleans over Detroit (1/2)
Denver over Pittsburgh (2/3)
Houston over Cincinnati (3/4)

In other words, I picked all the seeds and teams right for playoffs 3 weeks in advance, and I'm still in this time. You mad, bros?
SacredDigits (120 D)
09 Jan 12 UTC
I actually accurately predicted all the games in the other board I frequent, and didn't realize I didn't say anything here. My scores were wildly off, though. Don't worry, I'm not using this as retroactive picks.

Jan 4 2012, 11:21 AM

So, we start with:

Bengals at Texans

Man, I really like the Texans. I also would LOVE to see this be a really rare Super Bowl: one between two teams that have never been there before. But I think we're two years away from that, realistically. The Texans are just too hurt. Even if they do pull it together and beat Cincy, and I wouldn't bet the farm on that, I think their run ends there.

My prediction: Texans 17, Bengals 14

Lions at Saints

This game is going to break my heart into a million pieces and I know it. I know the Lions are going to go down and face the guy who was my personal hero for 14 of the last 17 weeks, and he's going to torch them. I know Stafford and Megatron can hang, but I don't believe they'll come out on top. And the swagger coming out of the Detroit camp is a little too reminiscent of Rex Ryan's Jets. "I don’t think we concede anything,” Jim Schwartz says, seemingly dumbfounded that a reporter would suggest that Brees is going to light up the scoreboard to some level. Suh added, “I don’t plan on anyone shooting our defense out." It's good to have confidence. I'm glad they have it. But I'm terrified of what will actually happen.

I predict: Saints 52, Lions 48

Steelers at Tebows

I want to see a little Tebow magic here because I hate the Steelers. It's possible, because Pittsburgh's offense is a little hobbled (they had issues scoring on the Browns last week), and their leading tackler has to sit the game out because he has a medical condition that worsens at a mile high. Tebow's game has suffered the last three weeks, but hopefully he regains his faith after even a loss to the Neckbearded One didn't kill his season. I'm hoping here.

I dream: Broncos 17, Steelers 14

Falcons at Giants

I think these are the two most flawed teams in the playoffs, and Matty Ice has lately been as streaky as Eli if not moreso. Plus, while the Giants don't usually have a huge homefield advantage, the Falcons aren't very good on the road as a franchise. I think the G-Men pull this out because they have to.

I predict: Giants 35, Falcons 21

@jmeyersd - oh don't get too worried. That was a once in a lifetime appearance for the Giants Defense. Next week they'll get lit up as usual. Running game struggled for a while too, so we'll be one dimensional for most of the first half, until you defense gets tired in the 4th quarter and Jacobs looks like MJD haha. Still, it'll be tough to keep up with the Pack in scoring
