True.  Such a let down.  The other 3 games were packed full of excitement

Wentz is made of glass.  Also it seems like his body is allergic to the playoffs, it goes to great lengths to avoid it haha

There was nothing he did that was just a case of bad luck. I feel for him.

I know he didn’t bring any of it on himself, just pointing out how prone he is to injury. I know he has been extremely eager to prove himself in the playoffs, just never seems to pan out for him from start to finish

Man you could hear a pin drop in there... and that is very rare for that stadium

Russ just ended their season, well not yet but close. Philly did good this season by winning their division because they had a ton of injuries.

Lol I surprised they even thought they had a shot.. at one point I thought this matchup was gonna be an 8-8 team hosting a 13-3 team lol. Eagles Superbowl was two weeks ago

I always make friendly bets with a friend of mine at work, like 20 dollars or lunch haha . He got me on the Ohio St/Clemson game. I had Ohio, I have Seattle in this one.

Yep we could have drafted him over Campbell at 59.

Of all the recent draft blunders I'm upset about is the fact that La'el Collins went UNDRAFTED and signed with the cowboys. Colts SHOULD have taken a risk on him, would have been solid for us. Sure it was a risk people weren't sure because of the pending/potential legal issues surrounding him but man that paid off for the Cowboys.

I strongly disagree with them going down to the 2 minute warning. They still have to SCORE ... AND convert a 2 point play to TIE the game, should that 2 point fail if they do score they need the ball back, would have been nice to have had the extra time IMO.

Geeze Eagles, you didn't even come up with a good play after the 2 minute warning. Seahawks will win this game for sure. I don't see the eagles stopping them on a 3 and out soon enough to get the ball back with a chance. 

 

Gotta say though, at least ALL 4 games this wildcard weekend were extremely competitive and FUN to watch! ..... and of course the best thing obviously is the Pats losing :)

    • FWIW I thought this from last weeks mail bag was funny because it seems to support what both you and I are saying.  If what I understand your point being is the dline including Buckner played similarly well both games and my belief that 3techs don’t need to record sacks and tfls to be dominant. : “I can understand why fans who watched last Sunday's opener against the Jaguars, and then checked out the box score afterwards, might come away with the conclusion that DeForest Buckner didn't have much of an impact on the game. After all, the Colts traded away their 13th-overall pick in this year's NFL Draft to acquire Buckner, and then immediately handed him a huge contract extension, so expectations are high. I get that. But looking back at the film, I think what's evident is Buckner deserves a little bit more credit beyond his stat-sheet line of six tackles (one for a loss). As the defensive line started to gel in the second half — that's when it limited Jacksonville to six combined rushing yards and had three of its four sacks — you began to feel Buckner much more consistently, and the attention placed on him allowed for others (I thought linebacker Bobby Okereke was fantastic in the second half) to make plays. Buckner also had the eighth-best week among all NFL interior defensive linemen in run stop win rate in Week 1, according to ESPN. Now, moving forward, of course you want to see more of those impact-type plays out of Buckner — sacks, big run stuffs, forced fumbles, defensive touchdowns, etc. But I think it's also important to to remember there are other ways for the three-tech to impact the game, and Buckner did a pretty good job of that last Sunday.”  
    • I’m a little surprised you don’t see a difference in dline play between  the two games.  I don’t have access to any of the services but I would suspect that The grades are significantly higher for the dline in Sunday compared to the Jax game.   but Sunday was even more dominant than i thought, and I thought it was dominant.  Between the opening drive during which MN gained 75 and scored a FG and their last meaningless drive for 75 yds and a TD, the Colts gave up a total of 25 other yds.    against Jax, we gave up around 60 yds rushing in the 1st half and the dline looked less than dominant then imo.  Jax had 5 of 8 drives during which they scored if you throw out the kneel downs at the end of each half.   Percentage of  tackles and sacks for linemen were very similar in both games.  You said that colts had more pressures during the mn game and I said probably a function of Jax short passing attack.   buckner had 6 tackles v Jax and 3 v mn.  He had no sacks v Jax but 1.5 tfl.  He had 1.5 sacks v mn but no other tfl.  Statistically counting sacks, tackles, and tfl he was “better” V Jax.  But you probably don’t think He was better Iwould suspect.   i would be shocked if the dline didn’t grade out higher v. Mn than Jax even though the tackles, tfl, and sacks were very similar over all.   im sure teams keep advanced stats that show a clearer pic of when a d lineman wins or loses on each Play that doesn’t necessarily match easier to see stats like tackles, etc.   do you have access to the grades?  I’d really be interested in the units grades in the two games.   i agree there can be other factors like obviously opponent strength and the play of LBs and dbs.  And mn looks like they might suck pretty bad surprisingly to me.  I think the main problem with lasts weeks game imo is the LBs are weak in coverage and Indy is as a result susceptible to short passing attacks.     that being said, rarely do dlines dominate the LOs like the colts did.   i maintain that a guy like Buckner and dts in general could have nit recorded a sack, had only a couple of tackles and be more dominant than In a game where he recorded a few tackles and a couple of sacks.
