2013 - NFL Playoffs

137 posts in this topic

The NFL Playoffs are here!  Love watching these teams battle their way to the Super Bowl.

AFC

Bengals vs. Texans (-5, 43.5)

Saturday @ 4:30 PM EST

Colts vs. Ravens (-6, 46.5)

Sunday @ 1:00 PM EST

NFC

Vikings vs. Packers (-7.5, 46)

Saturday @ 8:00 PM EST

Seahawks (-2.5, 44.5) vs Redskins

Sunday @ 4:30 PM EST

Who you got?  Looks like Vegas likes the home teams over the away teams - but see the Seahawks on a streak that is hot enough to favor them.  Basically -2.5 is a push... There should be some decent games this weekend to watch.  The Bengals got smoked by the Texans last season in the Wild card game... It will be interesting to see if they can hang this time around.  I doubt it.

Here are my uneducated guesses....

Texans 31, Bengals 21.... Dalton can't handle the pass rush and throws too many picks.

Ravens 24, Colts 16..... Ravens play inspried football with Ray Lewis announcing his retirement

Packers 34, Vikings 24.... Discount double check thrives - two weeks in a row and All-Day can't carry the load

Redskins 35, Seahawks 17.... Seachickens don't travel well - and RG3 shows why Washington is the team to beat

Your picks all seem reasonable to me.

I want a Seahawks/Packers NFC Championship game!  How sweet would that be?  A rematch of the game the put the stamp on the replacement refs season.

I also like the drama of Brady/Manning so I wouldn't mind seeing a Patriots-Broncos AFC championship game.

Those are what I want to see, but here are my predictions:

Bengals 20 - Texans 17

Ravens 24 -  Colts 21

Packers 28 - Vikings 17

Redskins 24 - Seahawks 22

I think the Seahawks will beat the Redskins, but otherwise I like your predictions.

First I have heard of this nickname.  Excellent.  Sneaky Pete is a decent regular season coach, but not a play-off coach.  I think Shanahan will be able to contain Wilson.

AFC:

Bengals 24 - Texans 17  The Bengals have been playing well and the Texans have lost 3 out of 4

Colts 21- Ravens 13 Flacco is Flacco plus Pagano knows the Ravens very well

NFC:

Vikings 10- Packers 28  Ponders first time in the playoffs gets the better of him but AP still has his standard huge day

Seattle by submission - Redskins  I love watching RG3 but he is hurt and Seattle is a team that will get after him

Vikings over Packers at Lambeau?..You are brave.

Although the Vikings just beat us I am happy the Pack get them again. Ponder will shit his pants in his first playoff start, in Lambeau. I don't doubt that AP will run for 200 again. Having Woodson back will help. It's hard to beat a team 2 weeks in a row, and that dome in Minnesota played a factor last week.

I went back and forth on that one, and I don't really have confidence either way, so I went with the fun pick. My hope is that Ponder craps his pants in the first half and backup QB Joe Webb leads a furious comeback for the victory. That won't happen, but I can hope. ;-)

I have to go with all the home teams.  I know one will be an upset, but can't see it any other way.

I checked the weather forecasts and it doesn't look like there will be any epic weather games.  Love snow games or frozen tundra North Pole games.

Joe Webb to start.  I actually like Minnesota's chances more now.

    • 14- way Carry Bags?
      I had an ogio 14 way carry bag and hated it after one frustrating round I gave it away. 
    • XE1 Wedge: Have you tried it?
      It may be great but at what cost?  Not willing to lose my dignity to possibly save a shot or two.  Plus I love my jaws wedges with the md grooves. Straight ?. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Well said Mr.  Desmond the funny thing in all this is that somehow poor people support Trump against their own best interest. And call bernie a communist despite not really knowing what that or socialism is or the difference between the two. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Bernie says the system is rigged - stats since the 1980's prove that a great amount of wealth has shifted towards a very small percentage of people. Does that not concern you?  Walmart employs people with such small wages that their people are on welfare, so the argument goes that Walmart is a huge beneficiary of living off the government tit. As to Bernie's war against financial institutions, can you doubt that Wall St helped out the 2007 Depression? Completely irresponsible behavior based on greed. Hedge fund managers get capital gains rate on their compensation? Ridiculous. How many people do you know make over $10M on ordinary income? That is where he proposes a 52% tax that become 73% when one adds SS and Single Payer taxes, and then you have the state income tax, so it would get high. And it is too high, but he would not get that through Congress unless we truly had a revolution and all the Dems came out to vote for the revolution. If all Dems vote, Pubs lose except in areas so gerryrmandered that the one party it favors will always win. Bernie on guns? He won't take away guns, it's not in his record. Bernie is not snake oil -- Bernie and Trump are here because of the last 30 years of growing inequity, political correctness and divisiveness. If we do not address it with traditional politics, then eventually people will wake up and vote their interests, which would be Sanders  or a similar politician. It is time for change, the last 30 years have been tough on all levels of the lower and middle classes while the upper class have the "let them eat cake" attitude. That only takes one so far before people vote for big change. I asked a 20 something the other night who she likes, Trump, Cruz, Sanders, Clinton - I said Clinton would work with the other side, Bernie wants a pipedream - she said "I want Bernie." I just said if you want Bernie, you better get out the vote because it will take a lot of young people to do it. Before I am "labeled" again, I don't think any candidates in either party are to my liking. But I think we do need incremental change ... now to reverse some of the last 30 years and renew the American Dream -- it should be for all, not 1%.
    • Anyone enjoying the drink tonight?
      Hopslam last night, just released by Bells.  Best beer in a can, which used to only be in a bottle.
