NYG at Green Bay

(Can I just tell you that the entire New England area is terrified at the prospect of playing the Giants in the Superbowl)

Predictions:

Wild Card Round:

Oakland (Tom Savage vs. Mike McGloin maybe? ick)
Pittsburgh (Miami's defense is terrible and Pittsburgh's offense is pretty good most days)
Seattle (Detroit is not going to be able to score against that defense outdoors in Seattle)
Green Bay (Yep, I'm a homer - I actually don't think they can beat that defense but who the fuck knows with Green Bay this year)

I feel like this game ends 7-0 with the score being a Khalil Mack pick 6.

I'd take the over on the number of pick sixes in the game being 2.

It's clearly the "who gets to get destroyed in round 2 bowl"

I only picked Houston because I think Brock is probably more capable than a third string rookie with half a game experience.

Yah I hear that on Brock vs. Cook. My arguments are as follows:

1. Brock is fucking horrible.
2. Houston plays in the AFC South
3. Oakland plays in the AFC West
4. Houston has one of the worst DVOA's (Football Outsider, look it up etc) for a playoff team ever (-21%)

Yes but... Brock is horrible and has a lot of film. Cook is a third string journeyman in the making, but no one has a clue how he plays. Seemed to serve Wentz up until the point defenses figured out his game. this might get Cook a win out of this game.

The only reason Houston is in the playoffs is because they are in the AFC South. And they still almost lost out of that to the goddamn Titans. Just as a team, they are demonstrably worse than the Raiders regardless of who is QB for Oakland. Their defense is good enough, however, to beat up on a 3rd string QB so it remains to be seen whether they can luck into a win or not. I still think the Raiders are a better team with a playoff experienced coach who can handle it better than the pile of mashed potatoes that is Bill O'Brien. Also, both Brock and Savage are just bad QB's.

This is all true.

But Oakland seems to be in free-fall.

To me, game is a toss-up with teams going nowhere after this weekend.

But Houston has home-field advantage and the better QB (relatively speaking).

Yeah, it was utter shit. The Raiders had nothing with this Cook twit as their QB and Osweiler had like one good drive. The rest was just fucking terrible. The Raiders receivers couldn't catch what passes came their way and most of the passes were so telegraphed by the QB that the Raiders corners just jumped the shit out of the routes. Also, it's 3rd down and 10, let's throw a bubble screen even though it hasn't worked the last 17 times I've tried it (and that was on both teams). I'm not sure McGloin would have done better for the Raiders (he was available supposedly) but he can't have done much worse.

As for Detroit, Stafford was fucking awful. He clearly can't throw shit accurately and yet I'm not sure the backup would have been any better. Also, despite only being down 4 points, they completely abandoned the running game in the second half again. The Detroit defensive line also just got utterly blown away by what I was led to believe was a shitty Seahawks O line. The score was close for much of the game but it never really looked like Detroit was going to be competitive.

I've long liked Eli at QB for the Giants, but he just can't do it with this offensive line. It's part him, part them. The guy can't move enough to survive without top tier blocking, and the Giants o-line this year has been AT BEST mediocre and often outright terrible. The Giants got a good defense for the money they paid, but without an offensive line worth a damn, they don't have long term prospects - and Eli is on his way out.

The giants went 11-5 scoring under 20 points per game this year. Their defense helped them win the close games this year, but you've got to put the ball in the endzone a lot more often. You've got talented receivers, but that doesn't count for enough if Eli can't get them the ball.

Eli is not good enough to win with no running game and no offensive line. He just throws too many bad passes when under pressure. That said, his receivers let him down today. Odell Beckham Jr. just laid a huge egg - 3 drops and what he did catch was a few nothing balls. When your whole game plan is centered around getting him the ball, he's got to play better than that. Especially when you consider HOW FUCKING BAD the entire set of trash heap street free agents the Packers' cornerbacks are. They are terrible.

Also, I've come to realize that Aaron Rodgers and that amazing O line is the only reason Mike McCarthy is so successful. McCarthy's entire game plan seems to be street football scramble drills. Nobody should be able to block good defensive lines for as long as the Packers are able to, and if that ever breaks down, Aaron Rodgers is going to get killed. They need to keep doing the quick hitting slants and 3-step drop passing game to really be effective but I'm sure they'll spend the 1st quarter of the Cowboys game doing the same ineffective shit they did this 1st quarter.

Miami's defense is trash. The Steelers offense is insane. Also, that guy Dupree? He should have been ejected for that hit on Matt Moore. Until the NFL starts tossing guys for clear targeting hits like that, they will never be able to be taken seriously when they say they are for "player safety." Because that was some goddamn bullshit.
