2013 - NFL Playoffs

Recommended Posts

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

Seachickens don't travel well

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

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.

    • Yeah, beginners clubs go through a lot of abuse. Try getting a used set of good clubs. There are quite a few places that have those as well. The thing about the Zevo clubs was their lifetime warranty. I don't know if they still have it, but as a Golfsmith product they were warranted for life. I got shafts replaces and head glued on many times for free. The name brand products like TM or Callaway required shipping back to the manufacturers and could take a couple weeks. Shop around a bit.
    • Hogwash! I bet these people aren't saying Vince WIlfork isnt an athlete. And all he did was stand up and shuffle a few yards most of the time. You tell them to go hit 1000 balls and then go play 72 holes if they dont think golf is a athletic pursuit. If that doesn't work - get a super soaker, fill it with vinegar and water, and make them pay for their ignorance. 
    • Just because there is a maximum score rule, that doesnt mean people will follow it. Same thing with pace of play. I have played tons of courses that have the pace of play guidelines printed on the scorecard, but rounds take over that amount of time because there is nobody from the course out there actively enforcing the pace of play.  And in my own personal experience of non tournament golf, I have NEVER seen someone to come back up to the tee and hit another tee shot once they got out to the fairway/rough and couldnt find their ball. Based on my experience, people coming back up to the tee and rehitting/not hitting a provisional is not the reason for excessively slow rounds.
    • That's good to know. I've been debating between getting this Zevo complete set, or trying to find a decent quality iron set $150 to $250, that I can use with the current driver I have. Only problem is trying to find one new that isn't poor quality, or one used that doesn't look like it's been beaten to hell and back. Gotta love it! 
    • I haven't watched it, but I've read many of the comics when I was a kid. So, heightened other senses. . .Tradeoffs. Hmm, I wonder how much of that applies to golf?   Another topic for the healing lounge. Golf was insulted by a co-worker who doesn't know much about golf today. I told my co-worker that many of my partners think I can't hit far until I start hitting far on the course or range, because I look kind of dumpy. The real reason is that many have known me for years and knew me when I didn't drive this far on average, which actually only happened recently. Then he said "No golfer looks athletic, they all look out of shape. They're not athletes. You look more athletic than any of them." Then I told him about long drive, and he admitted watching some blurb on TV about that and stated "Yes, but that's not golf. Is it?" So, he agreed that long drivers look like athletes, while still stating that PGA Tour players don't look anything resembling athletes. You know what? I agreed with him, because it's kind of true. . . I was suddenly reminded of one of my recent post about "Fattest golfers on the PGA Tour." vs the "Fittest golfers on the PGA Tour."  Off the top of my head, only Rory, Sergio and Camillo. In recent pictures, Dustin looks like a twig. Tiger has skinny calves. Golf needs to heal from this mornings barrage of "We are not athletes." . . .
