NFL playoffs

Postby ndlionsfan » Thu Jan 05, 2012 10:09 am

Who does everybody got this weekend?

I'm taking Cincy over Houston in a close game that could really go either way
Denver over Pitt because Pitt is just too banged up
Atlanta over the Giants, NY just too inconsistant this year
Saints roll the Lions, Saints are almost unstoppable right now and the Lions don't have the experience

For the Super Bowl, I've got the Saints and the Pats. Saints D finds a way to slow down the Pack (just like KC did) and the Pats are just too much. Could see the 9ers upsetting the Pack or NO with their D, but I just don't think they have the offense to make it happen. In the AFC, the Ravens are just too inconsistant and the Steelers are too banged up.

I think Eli gets another Ring this Year....I think 4 weeks ago Coughlins Job was in Jeopardy, but they have sure made a turn around. They'll beat the Pats again!.....they have the Best Defense out of whats left in the NFC and they are the Healthiest.

Giants D is better than the 49ers D?

Who's everybody got in the Super Bowl? I don't see the Pack making it with their D, but homefield advantage could give them the edge. Saints are firing on all cylinders on both sides of the ball right now, but got upset last year and have a tough road to get through Detroit, SF, and the Pack. Pats look like the team in the AFC, but you never know when the Ravens will play to their potential and the Steelers could make a run, too. Or is a surprise team going to make a run? Could have seen Houston doing this if healthy, but not now. Could be the Giants. My pick for an underdog making it to the big game would be Cincy, though. But, I think they might be a year or two off of that right now. Too hard to rely on rookies in the playoffs.

I've got Houston, New Orleans, Pittsburg, and Atlanta this week. Besides the New Orleans game I think it is a toss up (Pittsburg could dominate but I don't see it with the injuries). I picked the Packers and Ravens preseason to play in the superbowl with the Ravens winning, so I will stick to my guns.

Believe it or not I over thunk it.

Now that I had a sneek peak I need to adjust my NFL thoughts
Teebs definitely is being rewarded for his enormous time spent in the weight room and at Florida, I mean hes not first rounder for nothing...He holds, 5 NCAA, 14 Southeastern Conference, and 28 University of Florida statistical records, plus he is really spiritual, but so was Reggie White....Reggie White could also lift up the back of a School Bus....you have to put things into perspective when it comes to Super Natural and reality in pro Sports or Sports in general.

So its a No Brainier...Teebs and Eli go at it for this years Superbowl they beat N.O. and the Pats to get there
and unfortualtly even TT's strong Faith cant put him past the Kid who already has a Ring, has a Big Brother who was, OK!..more than fair at the position, and a Father who (and no offense against Tim's Dad who Preached the faith) Groomed them both with the Knowledge from doing it himself.

Giants over Denver.........28 to 18......I am giving alot of attention to the QB's but I like Both of their Defenses as well!

New England over Denver- Look what happens Denver when you actually let Tebow throw in the first half. As Skip Bayless says, UNLEASH! I think it'll play out like last time. Tebow will play well (even better this time) but the D wont be able to keep up. They've been bad as of late. Awful against NE and Buffalo, not great against KC and bad against a beat up Pittsburgh.

Houston over Baltimore- Houston's D and run game is too much. They have PERFECTED the stretch and load plays. Fits Foster's style perfectly too. I also don't trust Flacco.

New York Football Giants over Green Bay- Just like when they did it to the Pats. Close loss towards the end of the year to a undefeated team, then they get hot and upset them in the playoffs.

New Orleans over San Francisco- This one is tough for me. Saints are a different team away from home. We'll see if they can take their indoor circus of an offense outside against a tough D. I just don't trust Alex Smith to show up big in the playoffs.

Thought Cincy had a chance for the upset and would have lost a lot of money on the Denver game. Thought Denver's coaching staff had them very well prepared and really found some holes in Pitt's D. Denver's D is tough.

Yeah, I am. Feeling unsure after going 50% and losing my SB predicted winner. If I were to change 1 and go with my heart, it would be NYG over the Pack. Didn't get to watch the Houston game, so not sure about them. Wasn't sure if Yates could get it done. Think Baltimore will have to score 20+ points to win, like Denver last night. Think New England vs. Denver will be the only blow out (+14).

The Pack should be a title lock....but the Giants always play them tough....and Eli loves going after the big guns....its highly likely he developed that attitude right in his own house growing up...I like the Giants balance, I think its the best outta the teams that are left.
Denver will need to rush on Brady, beat him up....if he gets time to pass the Broncs are in trouble.....You will see tebow getting 50- 100 yds rushing, and this could be the difference.
If Andre Johnson goes big, Baltimore is going down
If Breeze has a hayday for one more game with his arm...then just hand them the trophy....someone has to stop that guy and it may just be San fran
