Gadzooks-- If I post the Live Thread early... big and I can stay drunk until Saturday--
SD (in OT)
I think San Diego is going to win the AFC.
I can see that; they’re peaking, like the NYG did during their runs.
Boston over Colts - 31-16
Weehawks nip Nawlins - 28-7
Kittens Kill Kapernick - 21-14
Dago upsets BroncoBamas (in OT) 41-38
What’s the chance of any one of those teams actually being able to play some defense?
I know it’s mostly the rule changes and people “say” it’s more fun to watch, but I think it’s more of a boring game when all they’re doing is playing pass and catch.
DB’s just don’t have a chacne these days.
Interesting playoffs this year. Worth noting that most if not all of the best quarterbacks are still in the hunt.
Touché - bring back power running -
I think this may very well be Belichick’s best coaching job in New England, yet....I don’t know how he managed to squeeze 12 wins out of that team, but I just don’t see them making it to the Super Bowl.
While Bendy and big are indisposed, he're something... to get your juices flowing:
Cowlishaw: Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and Dallas Cowboys could be match made in heaven
It is "...two weeks after Tony Romos 34th birthday. After two surgical procedures on his back in the last year, is there anyone who still thinks its too soon to start grooming his replacement?
"And given Jones tendency to look as hard at the business side of the Cowboys as the football side, can there be more of a match made in heaven (or elsewhere, some would suggest) than seeing Jones standing alongside Johnny Manziel on draft night?
"The Cowboys will find out in a coin flip with Baltimore next month whether their first-round pick is 16th or 17th. Some believe that after four months of examination, Texas A&Ms legendary Johnny Football will have moved into the top 10 of this draft, assuming he opts to leave school. Others feel that questions about his size, perhaps his off-the-field behavior and definitely his ability to withstand hits from NFL defenders will drop him into the middle of the round, where the Cowboys will be selecting.
"If there is one thing that can convince Jones that the best move is to draft Romos successor, its Manziels surefire ability to sell tickets and continue making AT&T Stadium No. 1 in NFL attendance even while the Cowboys playoff drought continues."
Okay, all you Cowboys Haters... fire away!
Seattle over New Orleans
Patriots over Colts
Panthers over 49’ers
Chargers over Broncos
Only 1 “upset” this week...
Manziel may be the second coming of Bobby Layne.
I totally agree. And IF they did make it to the SB, I don’t see them beating SEA (or SF or CAR).
In all likelihood, these fickle Dallas fans will attack Johnny Football and say he’s gay ... and when they fall again to 8-8 (thanks to Jerry Jones) they’ll blame JF and say how overrated he is ... couldn’t win in the SEC, can’t win in the NFL.
Can Manziel go both ways and play Safety as well?
nobody is knocking Brady out of the playoffs this year, not Baltimore, not San Diego, and certainly not Peyton Manning, who can't even beat Brady when Tom spots him 24 points out of the gate.
i hate to tell you, but it's parade time in beantown again.
SF is going to win against the Panthers. The difference is Michael Crabtree, he wasn’t there in the regular season game where they loss, being hurt but he is the key to why his presence not only allows him to get catches but it opens it up for Vernon Davis and Boldin to get the ball as well. Nothing against Carolina’s defense which is good but SF defense is slightly better
