NFC Championship Game: 49ers at Eagles I’m pretty convinced the Eagles are going to win this game. My opinion of San Fran went down quite a bit after watching them play the Cowboys. Yes, they won the game obviously, but they showed some serious offensive limitations. And for most of that game, the Cowboys looked… Read More Conference Championship Weekend Predictions
I want to start this post off with a question: does making a change at head coach in the middle of a string of playoff appearances ever work out for teams that do it? That is to say, if you’re a team like the Bills, and you’ve been knocking on the door for a while… Read More Will the Bills Fire Sean McDermott?
I promised you Divisional Round INSANITY but we saw nothing of the sort. These games were pretty orderly and ho-hum when you compare them to last year’s games. I thought for sure the Bills-Bengals game would be off the chain, but it was a beatdown. Then I figured the Dallas-San Fran game would have a… Read More Divisional Round Reactions: Rather Tame, All Things Considered
Before we get into the Divisional Round INSANITY sure to ensue (you’ll know why I’m using that term shortly), I want to just go over a few of the storylines that are dominating NFL talk this week. The 49ers’ Rest Advantage: San Fran vs. Seattle was the first game of wild card weekend, taking place… Read More Divisional Round Insanity Predictions and Hot Takes, and More
I was lucky enough to be in attendance for the Jags vs. Chargers game, so I didn’t really watch much of the 49ers vs. Seahawks game. I saw the first half, the start of the second half, and then we listened to the rest of the game on the way to the stadium in Jacksonville,… Read More Wild Card Round Reactions: Chargers, WHAT HAPPENEDUH?
Let’s just start with some of the news that has been breaking over the past few days: Atlanta will be the host of the AFC Championship game if it’s Bills vs. Chiefs. I don’t like it. Those are two cold-weather, outdoor stadium teams. Why put them in a dome? It would be a fun game… Read More Super Wild Card Weekend Bonanza: Predictions for All 6 Games, Draft and Free Agency Thoughts, Super Bowl Prediction
The playoff field is set: And so here are my tiers going into the Wild Card matchups: Here is the schedule for wild card weekend–oh, I’m sorry: Super Wild Card Weekend™. Betting lines: Nothing too surprising here. Both Vegas and the NFL think the 49ers will make short work of the Seahawks, given that the… Read More 2022 NFL Playoff Tiers, Black Monday Firing Reactions, One Sentence Season Recaps for Non-Playoff Teams | Jim Harbaugh is the Perfect Fit for the Broncos
Alabama, you have been dethroned. There is a new king of college football. I don’t care how great Bama’s recruiting classes are, I don’t care how many great players they yank from the portal. Georgia is the apex predator of college football now. The two teams that beat Bama this year, Georgia thumped them both.… Read More Kirby Smart: The New King of College Football
To be honest, I completely forgot about this weekly series in the wake of the Damar Hamlin situation. That’s really the only football-related story I’ve been paying attention to this week. On top of that, I felt it would’ve been disrespectful to sort of “move on” and resume normal business as usual regarding the NFL.… Read More NFL Week 18 Tiers, Reactions and Every Team Described in One Sentence
We got not one but two amazing games. This has never happened before. We’ve had the college football playoff in place since 2014, meaning we’ve now had 9 years of semifinal games–18 games in total. Prior to this year, there were only three truly great, truly memorable games among them: 2014 Ohio State vs. Alabama,… Read More We Just Saw the Greatest College Football Playoff Ever
