Divisional playoffs thread

Gotta say I was really surprised at how well Arizona played, Delhomme flat out stunk.

Meanwhile it was a slug fest between the Ravens and Titans as expected. A rookie HC and QB, very impressed with the job the Ravens have done this year.

We had a rookie head coach with a MORE experienced QB. WHY AREN"T WE WINNING?!?!?!

J/k.

I'm happy for Arizona. I remember when they were in the NFC East. The Baltimore and Tenn. game was such a fun one to watch. I think San Diego and Giants are going to win today.

Skins arent winning because the team isnt that good. Balt has a D that can win/change games (skins dont). Balt has a pro style QB that doesnt get flustered and is an accurate passer (Skins dont). A solid O line (Skins dont), and a kicker that doesnt miss under the gun (skins dont). I am amazed that Balt can possibly win 2 super bowls with 2 different regimes before the Skins even sniff one.

Carolina went thru the motions in that game and they got burned (they looked like the Skins in the Cincy game). The more they fell behind the more confident AZ became. Anyone that thinks Moss is a #1 WR just needs to watch Larry Fitz to see how far down the #1 WR ladder Moss is. I am really glad AZ won and I'd like to see them go to the super bowl.

Flacco's completion % and rating are both lower than JC, despite a old and injury ravaged line. Baltimore's line is bigger and healthier, and they have a stable of 3 healthy running backs who all totaled over 500 yards rushing this year.

The Redskins lost to Cincy by one score, Arizona blew the doors off of Carolina. No much similarity in these games at all, especially considering Cincy went up on us 14-0, and Carolina took an early lead on AZ.

And I love how you manage to sneak in your shot at Santana Moss as well. Let me ask you, what do you LIKE about the Redskins? I know you pride yourself on being the negative agitator of the site, but really dude...

Cards are amazing! They have certainly proved me wrong. I didn't think Warner had it anymore.

I'm still going with the Eagles all the way to SB
I do a prognostication pool with some of my buddies, and before the season I picked the All-Pennsylvania Bowl, with Philly playing Pitt. That's not looking too far-fetched at this point.

The Skins O line isnt that good and it shows. Also Balt has 3 good backs while the Skins have 1 really good back and 2 that arent so great. It just appears to me that Flacco is a winner and for whatever reason JC isnt. When JC is in the Skins O just doesnt do much (even when they win they dont score many points). I just cant help but thaink that JC is what's holding the Skins O back.

The Redskins lost to Cincy by one score, Arizona blew the doors off of Carolina. No much similarity in these games at all, especially considering Cincy went up on us 14-0, and Carolina took an early lead on AZ.

The common thread between AZ/Car and Skins/Cinn game is that both the favored teams came out flat and seemed to go thru the motions.

And I love how you manage to sneak in your shot at Santana Moss as well. Let me ask you, what do you LIKE about the Redskins? I know you pride yourself on being the negative agitator of the site, but really dude...
To be honest there really isnt much to like about the Skins. They have glaring holes throughout the team. I do like Zorn and think he needs time to get the players (especially QB) he needs to make the O work. I also like London Fletcher and think him and CP were the only Skins that deserved to go to the Pro Bowl (Samuels selection was a joke).

Re: Divisional playoffs thread

Can we just talk about the playoffs without relating everything back to the Skins? For once maybe??

When I watch these games I just watch and enjoy playoff football. Are some of you really sitting there comparing everything to the Redskins? That's a miserable way to watch.

Jesus, I was just ****ing around when I said that because i knew someone would pick up on Baltimore's experience and somehow make an argument about the 'skins. I didn't think this would come to fruition. I am sorry Matty.

I want to know if Norv Turner can make this game go his way personally.

Not your fault at all.

The Eagles - Giants game today is going to be a slobberknocker. Crazy to think that if Philly wins, the Arizona Cardinals will be hosting the conference championship game. If you had told me that a month ago, I would have told you to go jump off a bridge.

Yeah seriously. I'm actually jumping on the Cards bandwagon now, they're a fun team to watch right now. Why can't they be this years' Giants?

Re: Divisional playoffs thread

I am actually rooting for the Eagles, I hate to say it. The eagles are right behind the Cowboys on my list of teams I hate. But for some reason (probably the fact that they won the superbowl) here in DC/Arlington there are a ton of Giants fans coming out of the woodwork, and they are possibly more obnoxious than the Eagles fans. I hope the Eagles shut them up!

If the Eagles win a Super Bowl, then we can't hang the fact that we have and they haven't over them

Re: Divisional playoffs thread

The whole year, we've heard how west coast teams cant win on the east coast, and that would be their undoing in the playoffs.

Well, pending todays outcomes, we could be looking at two championship games being held by 4th seeds on the Pacific time zone.

I, for one, would like to see that. Make the East Coast teams travel West and earn their way to the Super Bowl. Of course, I'd rather just have the Eagles lose right here.

There is no way in hell I want the Eagles to win the superbowl, but I want them to take out the G-Men.
