Jets, Jaguars, Bengals (or Browns), Titans, Texans and Chargers.

Name 6 teams you'd cut from the NFL to hopefully improve the product on the field. Holy fuck that was bad.

This weekend's games (outside of the Pats-Texans) actually look pretty good though I'll admit.

Fiancee: "The Giants...is that the team with two players? The guy with the face?" In her estimate, the Giants = Eli and OB. The defense did show up for a while until they got run down. At least they made a game of it before getting crushed, so my MVP of Wild Card weekend goes to the Giant's D for at least making a relatively entertaining half.

I had the Steelers game on while drawing and  why so serious? AB insta score back to back  why so serious?

I am honestly shocked that Eli couldn't exploit the GB secondary. Cruz and Beck and a suspect secondary should have been lights out. Not to mention that first half where Rodgers had 5-8 seconds in the pocket to throw with the G-men's DL? Wow... Good on GB's OL but I have to say, usually if a QB has 8 seconds to dick around before tossing it, there is some holding going on somewhere. I could argue a few of those long pockets there was, but overall the Giants just didn't get it done. Great OL play and having Rodgers without Nelson in the second half, kudos.

So now we have what?

GB @ Dallas
Pitt @ KC
Houston @ NE
SEA @ Atlanta

I would enjoy a Pats/Cowboys bowl. Either our boys win or the rookie dream team gets a storybook ending to their season.

Pittsburgh's gonna have a reverse week from last one mostly because their special teams suck right now (you just know Hill is gonna run at least one return in), Ben is shaky on the road anyway and now has an ankle to worry about. Can't run as much again when you're down.

Odell Beckham has and will continued to be incredibly overrated by the media because he made a great 1-handed catch. He gets more targets than any receiver in the league next to Mike Evans, and yet he's 35th in average catch yards. And he's 5th in TDs.

People put him up as one of the best receivers in the league. I think he's not good enough to carry Julio Jones' jockstrap.

To be fair to ODB, the offense he is playing on is really not conducive to average catch yards, as they throw a shitton of high percentage, low yardage throws. Also, Ben MacAdoo has never met a fade route he didn't want to marry once he reaches the red zone. The Giants were awful in the red zone because they have no running game or offensive line. He was targeted 169 times, made 101 receptions and only had 6 drops (which does put him 9th highest in drops this season). By comparison, Julio Jones had 129 targets, 83 receptions and only 3 drops.

No, ODB is no Julio Jones but there's not really many players who are. He's still the best offensive player on the Giants, hands down.

While I agree, it's partly because the Giants have ZERO running game in the red zone. They had 6 rushing TDs all year. That's crazy. Meanwhile they just were tossing it around in the red zone and going to either OBJ or Sterling Shepard.

And because of that they were 26th in points in the league. Their offense was awful. Like worse than Jacksonville awful. And OBJ is touted as the best in the league WR which is freaking laughable. He's a good receiver, but hardly the best. He just gets tons of action because the Giants have limited options.

On a better offense, OBJ is one of the best receivers in the league. The league is full of guys with big numbers that are not that good because it is a passing league.

Also, the refs in that GB/Dallas game were fucking awful. They either lack a basic understanding of defensive holding and pass interference, or just didn't care.

Falcons aren't aggressively loathsome either, so NFC it is I guess.

Well, I've learned the fiancee is the nasty competitive one. During the Pack/Cowboys game I was ok with either winning (slightly favoring the Cowboys because it's been fun watching the 2 rookies dominate). She went into full Packer fan mode, it was actually kinda ugly.

Pretty happy about the Steelers win because my boss is a huge Steelers fan and said she was rooting for them to lose so they wouldn't have to lose against the Patriots next week. So if they win, it's a great week at work and if they lose, I get to bust her chops for a year. Win/win!

Outside of already being a fan there is no reason a fan should NOT be supporting the Falcons now. The Pats, Steelers and Green Bay? Fuuuuuuuck that (and I'm a Pats fan).

Over/Under on GB - ATL opened at like 60 the highest ever for a playoff (or maybe championship) game.

Looking forward to Pats/Steelers. Big Ben vs Brady. They haven't matched up in the playoffs since 2004 (when Ben was a rookie) so Pittsburgh can say they earned it if they can get through to the SB. Pats will need to play way better than they did vs Houston but I think should win. Rodgers vs Brady in the SB would also be awesome.

Interesting that the offenses are winning over the defenses this year. Pats have the best defense left however they haven't played a decent QB since a loss vs Seattle.
Predictions:

Pats
Atl

Pats to win SB, 34-24.

As long as I'm going homer, I may as well go all the way. It's the matchup I want to see.

Also, you should hate Atlanta because it's asshole owner is bilking taxpayers out of money just to get his giant robot spinchter stadium built only 20 years after his perfectly acceptable Georgia Dome was built. Fuck Arthur Blank.

Good article on how the defenses left kinda suck but the offenses are damn good. Pats haven't played a good quarterback, but the Steelers really haven't either, unless you count Eli Manning? Green Bay and Atlanta's defenses are bad but it hasn't matter cause they score so many points. Who the fuck knows. Should be fun.
