PLAYOFFS?!: Conference Title Game Edition


Now for the NFL Conference title game picks (last week’s record: 3-1)

*Seattle Seahawks over Green Bay Packers (35-17)

Look I want to pick the Packers. But I can’t and I won’t. Aaron Rodgers is banged up and so is Eddie Lacy. While Marshawn Lynch may not have played well last game he will burn GB’s defense just like DeMarco Murray did. Also Russell Wilson is a duel threat QB and the Packers are facing him at home. Not even my own bias can’t change my mind.

*New England Patriots over Indianapolis Colts (37-20)

Poor Andrew Luck is 0-3 against the Pats. That’s unlikely to change as the Colts were run over by NE last time the two met in the playoffs. Also Gronk is a beast and seems unstoppable. I foresee the Patriots pulling away late at home as Tom Brady returns to the Super Bowl.

PLAYOFFS? PLAYOFFS?! Divisional Round


Time for more NFL fun this weekend (last weekend’s record: 3-1):

*Seattle Seahawks over Carolina Panthers (27-13)

Sure Carolina will put up more of a fight than expected. Yet Seattle has a great home crowd and hasn’t lost at home in a long time. The Panthers got this far but I just can’t see them stopping Russell Wilson or Marshawn Lynch.

*New England Patriots over Baltimore Ravens (35-20)

Unlike the Steelers the Patriots are not banged up and Tom Brady is looking to get revenge on Baltimore for knocking him out of the playoffs two seasons ago. Look for NE’s underrated run game to make a difference.

*Green Bay Packers over Dallas Cowboys (27-24)

This is destined to be a classic. And a really hard fought game as both teams have great offenses and quality defenses. Aaron Rodgers vs Tony Romo is a fantastic matchup. I’m heavily biased so take this entire post lightly. Eddie Lacy might be the X factor for the Packers.

*Denver Broncos over Indianapolis
Colts (31-26)

Peyton Manning outlasts Andrew Luck in a battle that ends up being decided by a couple of C.J. Anderson touchdowns. The Colts defense will keep some of Denver’s wideouts in check but it won’t be enough.

Vince Young, Green Bay, and Awful Predictions


For the record, I actually like Vince Young. Thanks to him USC did not win another national championship. Bully for him. However his pro career has been a disappointment, to say the least, and its sad because Young had the talent to at least be a good pro QB. Maybe even an annual Pro Bowler. His tale is one to heed, for his immaturity and lack of leadership skills have resulted in him going from being a starting quarterback for the Titans to being a backup with the Packers. Let this be a lesson to young players who think that it all it takes to be successful in the pros is talent. Some things go beyond talent, and there are simply other intangibles that make people great at what they do. Particularly in a violent sport such as football. Anyways I do think that Vince Young is not a bad pickup by the Packers, as the rest of the QBs on their roster are awful. If Aaron Rodgers goes down, Young could probably step in and play right away. So welcome to the Packers, Young, and get used to an organization that’s all about winning championships. It might be your last stop if you are not careful, but I do wish you the best of luck.
