What Is Early Word? The Philadelphia Inquirer's experimental online "morning show", which began in Sept. 2005, went on hiatus in the summer of 2006, after a gradual shift to putting more of its content directly on Philly.com.
About the Host Peter Mucha, husband and father of two, grew up in Cherry Hill and is a lifelong Philly sports fan. He's been writing and editing for The Inquirer for 18 years.
His motto (at least for today): "If I'm not brief, give me grief."

NFL Playoff Picks Going with Denver and Carolina today. Wish Pittsburgh would win. Really admired their aggressive game plan last week, but I can't see Shanahan getting outsmarted or the Steelers having enough left in the tank to win in that thin mile-high air. As for Seahawks-Panthers, I think Steve Smith is the difference. Forget Shaun Alexander. Teams that get this far can usually shut down a running game.
