Playoff game day talk


Recommended Posts

I think whoever wins the Bills/Chiefs game is going to the SB. The Titans being the #1 seed should beat Cincy but after that they will be toast as usual. I may take Cincy just for craps and giggles because nobody knows how healthy Henry will be. Look I bag on Tannehill a lot so I do want to say he is above average, basically a solid game manager so he doesn't suck but I can't see them beating teams like KC or Buffalo with him at QB. Those teams have way too much offense. They will probably squeeze by Cincy due to lack of experience that Cincy has in the playoffs and it is at Tennessee. By the way we have the same problem with Wentz, if we faced a KC or Buffalo we wouldn't win either - just keeping it real that is why we need a QB like Wilson. You can beat teams like that in the regular season but post season is a different animal.

Top 5 QB's in the league are:

1. Mahomes

2. Rodgers

-you could flip that, it is even. I still think GB will win the SB this year but if I was starting a franchise today I would take Mahomes because of his age.

 

3. Brady even at 44 lmao 

 

4. Allen

 

5. Russell Wilson when healthy - just had an off year plus was injured, he still has 5 very good to great years left. Unless you have a great defense a team is pretty much screwed if you don't have 1 of these 5 QB's. As good as Dak is, can never get it done. Dallas doesn't have the D. I don't see Matt Stafford getting it done either and look at the team around him. Rams will win tonight but after that Tom will knock them out.

 

I am 4-1 so far with my picks this week. Dallas is my only loss and that game was close. Jimmy G is a solid game manager and is good at times.

I do want to add:

 

I think Joe Burrow is the real deal, that team may own that division for a long time. Lamar is still top 10 and a former MVP so I see the AFC North being a 2 team race moving forward. The more I think about it, unless Henry goes full throttle next week, I am taking Cincy in the upset. I will go Cincy and KC next week in the AFC but the Bills are capable of winning the SB.

Gotta take what I can get in the aftermath of Jacksonville-Gate

Now if the Bucs lose that would be the cherry on top. I doubt they lose to the Rams though assuming Rams do win tonight.

Brady wasn’t afraid to go to the NFC to face Rogers, Brees etc.  He would probably welcome the competition.

In all honesty, Brady got out of the AFC at the perfect time.. 

 

I remember looking back when the NFC was rising up, the AFC had Brady Roethlisberger Luck and a shell of Manning

NFC had, Rodgers, Brees, Wilson, Manning, Kap, Newton and an old Palmer 

 

Now he left

Herbert, Jackson, Mahomes, Allen, Burrow, 

for Rodgers and Brees and Wilson  haha

 

But I'd say Rodgers would like to stay in Green Bay

As a team who I feel like always plays up/down to their opponents, it’s a shame we weren’t in the playoffs.

 

Feel like we at least wouldn’t be getting demolished by these teams.

true.. none of these teams play in Jacksonville :wall:

Cowboys, Patriots, and Steelers, all lost. Not a bad weekend under the circumstances.

For the most part the Wildcard round lacked excitement.

 

I enjoyed watching Josh Allen and the Bills, and I was happy for Bengals Fans.  The ending to the SF/Dallas game was bizarre, Steelers probably shouldn't have even been in the Playoffs, and Tampa/Philadelphia totally lost me as a spectator.

 

It's got to be better this weekend, right?

Travis Kelce’s mom crashing in on his post game interview after a win over the Steelers. This made my day!

 

 

 

That was great.  Sounds like something I would do.  haha

You mentioned Jackson in the AFC. I think I would take Prescott and Murray (both NFC) over Jackson.

Fair point, maybe Kyler. But Jackson is one year removed from being the league MVP. We'll how jackson is next year after the injury.. but like many people say.. all he does is win

Ogunjobi is out for the season, which means the Bengals will have an even tougher time stopping Tennessee. Especially if Henry is even close to being at 100%.

 

Bills should have tanked their last game for a matchup vs the Titans, IMO. They would have handled the Raiders too. Once the Colts lost to the Raiders, the Colts were at best a #6 seed and the Bills would have been fine with either the Patriots, Chargers or Raiders at #5. It would have avoided a matchup at KC.  Titans are the biggest beneficiary of all these events but in all fairness, they took care of their business while Spags and the Chiefs blew it vs the Bengals.

Luck's first 5 years from 2012-2016, Mahomes and Allen did not come into the league till 2017. Once Brady saw what he was going against in 2018 and 2019 in Mahomes, he got out of the AFC. It is a shame Luck and the Colts could never field a team to beat Brady and the Patriots. In all fairness, Peyton started 0-5 vs Brady and Belichick too like Luck did. Once Gronk and Edelman weren't around together, Brady sought a team with Evans and Godwin, and brought Gronk over with him. Smart man!!!

    • Says the right things I guess.   Same guy though that in two games, which we won by  a combined score of 72-15 (and never in doubt), ran JT into the ground 64 times...    Good intentions though.    I do think his production/attempts decrease though.     
    • I'm not as optimistic as you are in some areas lol.  I'm in a wait and see mode in several. And a prove me wrong mode until I see something different in a few.    Doesn't really matter. If we're good, everyone (most anyway) will be happy and forget about a lot of the stuff. If we're not, the same conversations will be had.   Perhaps we need a "Colts Negative" thread to go along with the "Colts Positive" thread lol.... It would be a safe place for all the neg nancies to vent. I don't think the Colts Positive thread has kept the sunshine pumpers from pumping sunshine in normal threads though 
    • Loved what Cross did, and there was some other stuff to like. But it's hard to get too cheery knowing it was our 1st team D vs their 2nd team O.    And let's be honest. On the first drive, Keenum drove them right down to the 5... and they went for it on 4th and 4. If Allen is in, that's a TD 99% of the time. It was Keenum though. won't call him a super scrub, but he's not a starter. And Shakir and Moss pretty much had their way that drive. Our DBs had no answer for Shakir.   And just not a lot of pressure from the DL. No sacks or QB hits at all from our starters. Expected much better vs their 2nd team OL. 
    • I have even been posting with a chip on my shoulder lately, grouchy at times, etc.. As a fan I am all in, in serious mode once September rolls around. I am on record saying AFC Title Game or bust for us, time to man up, etc..    I just think we have the QB, roster, and yes even coach to get to the Championship Game and then from there lets see what happens. Matt Ryan doesn't have that ring so I have a feeling he is going to have a big year, not so much statistically but just making big plays at crucial moments. I don't see Taylor missing much of a beat either, and I think Pittman will even be better. Hines will be our ace in the hole, bailing us out on many 3rd and shorts with the pass. I like our defense but not sold on it, I am concerned about Maniac because we need him. He creates so many game changing Turnovers. Overall, I love our team though. Only huge question mark is LT IMO, but Nelson plays on the left side so that should help.
    • There's always going to be debate, that's for sure. And yes, all sunshine and puppy dogs would be boring, and you wouldn't have much traffic lol.    Overall, I think most give rooks, new players (to the team), and new coaches/scheme, the patience they deserve.    Patience though gets shorter when folks get tired of trends, certain vets, or certain coaches. I have high hopes for Ryan/Reich. But I begin this season with the same pessimism about play calling and scheme. And that will remain until I see something different. Hopefully the addition of Ryan offsets that... But folks in general have become more skeptical of Frank the last year. And I think that will continue unless the O looks different.
