2019 Conference Championship Preview and Picks

Happy Championship Sunday! We got a huge pair of games today so let’s get started:. . . . .NE @ KC: This game is going to come down to the CONSISTENCY of Kansas City’s performance. I can ASSURE you that we’ll see a classic Patriots playoff effort in this game; but the only way to outmatch that is to start strong out of the gates, and RETAIN that all the way through until the last second.. . .We’ve seen their incredible talent time after time, but also their INABILITY to close out big games. The defense needs to play just as well as last week too, and use the momentum from last week – to their advantage.. . .I think KC has a REAL, LEGIT shot at this game and I’m really pulling for Andy Reid the most since he’s an EXCELLENT HC! I don’t care what you say; he’s top tier. Though, I can’t see Brady and Belichick falling to a relatively young Chiefs team FILLED with inexperience and sprinkled with holes.. . .Chiefs get off to a hot start, but lose steam near the end as Gostkowski hits a game winner to send the Pats to the Super Bowl: KC 17 – 20 NE.. . . . .LAR @ NO: Similar to the AFC championship, there is one much talented team in the Rams – like the...

2019 Divisional Round Preview and Picks

No intro needed. Let’s get started: . . . . . IND @ KC: As you know, my bold pre-playoff take was that Indy would reach the AFC championship. I’ll stick with the narrative and pick them against KC in a 34-31 win, capped by a Vinatieri GW-FG. I think balance > overall firepower and this Colts team can get it done better in the snowy trenches. . . . DAL @ LA: I’m really not buying into this whole “Rams are overrated” narrative. I think this is a huge statement game for them that will have people buzzing before the NFC championship. Rams dominate this one 38 – 20 over Dallas. . . . LAC @ NE: I’m rooting real hard for the Chargers in this one, but I CANNOT STAND how people continue to doubt the Patriots in these games. They act like there a 5-11 team! It’s ridiculous. They’ve done this too many times and they’re a different team at home. This game SHOULD be in LA though. Patriots take this one 27-24 in a close affair. . . . PHI @ NO: The Eagles played excellent @ Chicago. Don’t get me wrong. But I think the Bears’ performance was more of the reason why they won. Saints remind everyone why they’re the favorites with a commanding 41 – 20 win with most of the Eagles...

Why I LOVE the ADAM GASE Hire by the Jets!

As a Jets fan, let me start off by saying how RUSHED and REACTIONARY our fanbase’s response to this hire was. It’s COMICAL to see how quickly this fan base established the narrative that hiring Adam Gase was the “end of the world”. . . . They’ve pissed me off SO much that now I need to EXPLAIN why this is a GREAT hire! Please give this a read especially if you don’t agree. . . . . . 1.) DUE DILIGENCE. The Jets took this long to pick their guy for a reason. They interviewed EVERYBODY! This was not a rushed or forced hire or uneducated one by any means! . . . 2.) APPROVAL. This one is one of the most under-looked reasons. Per reports, the Jets got the FULL approval by Sam Darnold – who even talked to Gase – and PEYTON MANNING – who personally approached the Jets – to make this decision. That’s something I’m very glad to hear especially with the argument that Gase had poor player-coach relationships. . . . 3) IMPORTANCE. Jets fans act like this was a BS hire. This hire will decide whether or not GM Mike Maccagnan has a job in ten future since this was his first HC choice. Additionally, this is a crucial hire for Sam Darnold’s development as the current youngest QB in football. I...

FORGET About PARKEY. The Bears Should be DISGRACED at their Performance versus Philadelphia.

I would start this piece by talking about the bitter end to the season for Chicago on a crazy missed FG; but there are more important things to cover: How TERRIBLE the Bears played last night in their loss to Philadelphia. . . . CODY PARKEY did NOT choke. The BEARS choked! . . . Am I defending Parkey? Not necessarily because there’s no feeling bad for a professional who is paid a TON to execute his job on the highest stage; and he failed to do that. There’s no defending him there. . . . “Blocked” or not, this game wasn’t about his miss. That was just an unfortunate way to end it. The Bears flat out sucked last night and deserved to lose. . . . First of all, there was no offensive creativity and aggressiveness. Between the lack of urge to throw the ball downfield to a busted Eagles secondary, to the uninvolvement of many skill players like Tarik Cohen; it was a mess. . . . The defense did play well, but there’s no excuse for letting them score on the last drive like that and hiding under the pressure. . . . Worst of all, this is the least motivated I’ve seen the Bears all season. They looked shot, which is shocking considering they are a young squad eager to show that they were...
