This. I was hoping Andy could hold off until the Super Bowl to shit his pants. Sigh. And Mike McCarthy makes AR look like Vince Lombardi. Is there a worse game day coach that makes it to the playoffs all the time?

Cards looked really sloppy. Lots of bad Palmer throws that Seattle would have eaten for lunch.

The only good football of these playoffs is going to be Seattle - Carolina. At least I hope. NFC is a mess.

. NFC is a mess.

This is funny since up until yesterday I thought the AFC was a complete mess. The Pats showed that they are that team capable of competing with SEA, CAR and ARI. Can you imagine Denver or Pit in the shape they are in competing with any of those teams?

Still not convinced about the Pats either. The Chiefs were not that good of a team. They beat a lot of bad teams to get to the playoffs.

The Patriots with Gronk, Edelman and Brady can beat anyone.  It doesn't necessarily mean they will, but they at least can. The Bronco's are a good team, and if Manning can somehow manage to will himself through 3 games at a high level they could beat the NFC teams also.  Pittsburgh is too beat up.  Lots of talent, but they are limping here.

Funny how spotting  15-1 team 31 points at home makes it tough to win.  Should be a different looking team next season.  Okung will be gone,  Lynch will be gone,  Graham will be back... Hope they invest on the offensive line.

Welp, I apparently had my NFC matchups all wrong (as to who would play whom) but my picks of who wins stand because I knew neither the Packers nor the Seahawks were advancing. I think if Antonio Brown or DeAngelo Williams had played, I'd have gotten ALL of my picks right instead of whiffing on the Steelers/Broncos game. And again, my picks stay the same.

The Packers did a lot better than they should have, but that's because they had Sam Shields back. He is apparently just that damn good compare to the rest of their secondary. They got a pass rush and held up the Cardinals attack. But like all year, they got gashed on the big play, likely when Dom Capers decided to forego what was working (man2man) because... reasons. Fuck, I hate Dom Capers. He can do so well with a defense but he cannot make any adjustments worth a fuck. Oh well, I'll be rooting for the Cardinals from here on out.

The Panthers going 31 points up... I was expecting to hear news from Seattle that Way was out on a ledge. But the second half is exactly why I don't trust the Panthers to win against Arizona. The domination they were putting on the Seahawks (and the Giants a few weeks ago for that matter) in the first half should have continued into the second half. Instead, they let both those teams back into it for no good reason. Their offense sputtered and their defense couldn't cover receivers. Maybe Dom Capers was handling their second half DC duties. I expect the Panthers to get stuffed next week, home game or not.

The Chiefs are not a good football team. Sure, they won 11 straight, but dear GOD, watching their offense is like watching old people fuck. THEY ARE SLOW, PONDEROUS AND BORING. I'm not sure how they scored 20 points in any game ever. The Patriots were clearly the better offense and their defense was good enough.

And then there's the Broncos, whose offense is also like watching old people fuck, only with more fumbling. Kubiak's offense are slow and boring, but it doesn't help that their best receivers drop the ball ALL THE TIME. Demarius Thomas should have twice as many receptions as he does, but he drops balls left and right in every game I've seen him. And as good as their defense is, it still almost got beat by a Pittsburgh team without its best receiver and with a QB whose arm was probably hanging onto his shoulder with fucking chewing gum. If Tom Brady has Edelman and Gronk at 70% health, the Broncos will not win because the Pats defense isn't great but it's better than the Steelers and Brady's arm is still attached to his body by actual flesh.

I'm going to (as a lot of people have been) going to call bullshit on the Rothlisberger shit. Dude played great yesterday, and that shoulder injury didn't slow him down. And their other receivers did great. CHJ's worn down, especially with dealing with the shoulder injury now too.

Don't get me wrong, it ain't gonna br pretty, and NE is NEVER a walk in the park.

Did anybody else notice that the refs were calling these games completely differently than any regular season game this year? There were some pretty obvious pass interference/illegal contact calls that just weren't called at all in most of the games I saw that would for damn sure have been called in the regular season. I'm not sure there were any that were just total bullshit that decided a game but it's pretty obvious to me that the refs were instructed to let some things go.

Okung has been injured enough its like he isn't there. And Rawls is better than Lynch(maybe not in his prime, but right now, if he can stay healthy). We will draft O-Line and probably be just fine

The Packers did a lot better than they should have, but that's because they had Sam Shields back. He is apparently just that damn good compare to the rest of their secondary. They got a pass rush and held up the Cardinals attack. But like all year, they got gashed on the big play, likely when Dom Capers decided to forego what was working (man2man) because... reasons. Fuck, I hate Dom Capers. He can do so well with a defense but he cannot make any adjustments worth a fuck. Oh well, I'll be rooting for the Cardinals from here on out.


The Packers will continually be held back by their terrible play calling.

You're down by 1 and you have the chance to "guarantee" a tie or go for 2. What do you do?

A: You go for 2 because a single goal line play has better success rate than a full drive and you only get the full drive chance to win 50% of the time on a coin flip. And momentum is against you because you just had to throw two Hail Mary's to get there so good luck getting down the field again. And you have a 50% chance to not even get the ball and have to stop the Cardinal's offense with an even more tired defense. And through all of that the extra point isn't even guaranteed! Its a 94% chance right now. So even if you think you have a 50% chance to win in overtime which you don't as the underdog then the probability of winning if you kick is less than the probability of converting the 2-pt

A(Mike McCarthy): You know what? Lets go to overtime. I don't trust Aaron Rodgers on the goal line.


The Panthers going 31 points up... I was expecting to hear news from Seattle that Way was out on a ledge. But the second half is exactly why I don't trust the Panthers to win against Arizona. The domination they were putting on the Seahawks (and the Giants a few weeks ago for that matter) in the first half should have continued into the second half. Instead, they let both those teams back into it for no good reason. Their offense sputtered and their defense couldn't cover receivers. Maybe Dom Capers was handling their second half DC duties. I expect the Panthers to get stuffed next week, home game or not.

Panthers will probably lose to Carolina. While Seattle is the better team of the three in DVOA the Panthers have both the offense and defense type to stymie the Seattle style. They protect very well against big plays and have a great pass rush. And well, we tend to go for big plays and eschew the intermediate routes that have a chance of punishing that. Their brilliant linebacker spy is basically the worst thing for us since its so much harder for Wilson to get away from it, even if he is going to pull from his bag of tricks. Similarly we play a similar defensive scheme as Carolina with great pass D that prevents big plays until the line can force something to happen. But it doesn't protect against intermediate pass plays; especially when designed QB runs or scrambles are on the table.

Arizona on the other hand is all about those intermediate passes which will drop in front of the Carolina defenders and too far away from the spys for them to do anything about it. And their defense is all about letting someone try to make the long pass by defending the intermediate and not giving them enough time to get the long throw. Against the Hawks this does not work because Wilson is a magic man and we will eventually get that long pass down. And Palmer is not mobile enough or willing to do designed run plays in order to not have our d-line make his day difficult.

I expect the Cardinals to beat the Panthers. Whether or not they can beat the Patriots is another question (Patriots are almost a shoe in unless Denver nuts up and plays Osweiler) but i would say that Arizona has the best chance against either team.

They almost always are. But i am not sure what you're referring to. The only game i watched particularly closely(Sea/Carolina) looked fairly clean(well besides my unhappiness wanting to flag carolina on every play) and i didn't see anything particularly worthy of being called that wasn't except for a few instances of Carolina defenders turning over on Wilson.

This is one of the reasons I LOVE the Cardinals offense. They play the pass the way NFL teams USED to before all the bubble screens and West Coast dink and dunk offenses became so prevalent. Yeah, great your QB has 70% completion rate - did any pass travel more than 5 yards? Most of those passes are reliant on the wideouts making yards after the catch because defenses no longer know how to fucking tackle in the open field. That's one of the reasons Seattle's defense has done so well over the years and especially in that Super Bowl win. Their defensive backfield could actually tackle those fast wideouts in the middle.

It's one of the things I HATE about the Packers offense especially this year. Their pass plays are all dink and dunks with almost nothing in the intermediate. Their wideouts couldn't get open on those short routes because of a lack of quickness and our shitty OC and McCarthy never figured out that Rodgers can throw the ball accurately 10-15 yards down the field. I would kill for Bruce Arians as our HC.
