Wild Card Weekend Predictions

115 posts in this topic

I agree with Zod, and I hope it plays out that way since SF is the only team that I think has a chance to beat Seattle at home and force the NFCC game to come to Charlotte.

 

Yup, this is what I'm hoping for as well - don't think GB or NO stand a chance of beating SEA.

Before this season we had never beaten Miami or Matt Ryan in the dome. Do we really want to talk about what teams have "never" done. They still have one of the best qbs in the game and one of the best play callers. I don't like them either but I respect them as a football team and I'm not ignorant to their abilities.

If the football Gods hadn't sent that rain in we'd probably be on our way to Philly right now.

So the rain in Carolina dampens their awesomeness, but the snow and cold in Philly won't?

Colts over Chiefs 31 - 17

 

Colts take a quick lead and the Chiefs go into halftime down 21-3. First play of the 2nd half Charles breaks an 80 yard run for a TD. Andrew Luck then throws his third int only to have Flowers get to the 5 yard line, drop the ball too early in celebration and Trent Richardson picks it up and runs 95 yards down the field for a TD.

 

Saints over Eagles 55 - 52 OT

 

Turns into a shoot-out with the Saints edging out the Eagles with a 45 yard field goal by Graham to win the game.

 

Bengals over Chargers 24 - 13

 

Bengals are a better team. Nothing against the Chargers, but Cincy is my sleeper pick to go to the Super Bowl.

 

Packers over 49ers 21 - 17

 

7 degrees outside with 15 mph winds. Enough said. I think this ones close, but I think the Packers edge out the 49ers with a sack of Kapernick on the last hail mary play of the game causing all those Santa Clara loving 49ers fans to collectively poop their pants.

That was a monsoon. If it Snows philly wins. If it's just cold I'm taking the Saints.

I like Aaron to pull it out...

 

but that really is the hardest game this weekend to call.

You think Carolina can go into Seattle & steal a win? 

 

I am a bit worried if SF comes to Charlotte...

Definitely more GB than NO. NO has zero chance in Seattle.

Cinci gets it together and wins over yet another choking Bolts team in post season play............Cinci 31-17

 

Indy takes care of business after falling behind to KC and wins a close one....................Indy 37-28

 

A bizarre game in Philly sees the Eagles and Saint fight back and forth before Eagles get the win...........Eagles 24-21

 

SF chokes in GB....yes their QB has a horrible game and they choke and GB sees the day..............Packers 27-17

Can we?  Yes.

 

But I think we have a much better chance at beating SF in Charlotte than the Seahawks in Seattle.

 

There aren't any easy roads to the super bowl here J... all of these teams are tough frankly.  Us included.  

 

I don't think we, or they can discount anyone.

    • First, let me say that I pretty much only watch the NBA during the playoffs (or when I'm absolutely bored and channel surfing, which is very very seldom). I am really a fan of players and coaches and not necessarily teams except for the Spurs. That being said, I do support the Hornets as they are a North Carolina team---the "home" team, if you will.  The problem is I don't see any way that they will credibly compete for a championship (because they really haven't come close in franchise history). Gone are the days of Grand Ma Ma and Dell Curry, but even then one would be hard pressed to really believe. Unless they happen to draft a legitimate, and I mean legitimate, superstar that wants to be here, I can't see it. I go from year to year in June saying "Perhaps this is the year," but reality sets in during December.  Well, perhaps this is the year that they at least become credible. Monk was arguably the best pure shooter in the draft. Can he create his own shot---break 'em down and break some ankles to be a legitimate point guard? We will see. Bacon may be underrated. We will see. Does the other Superman in Charlotte have enough juice to make a credible run and get the Hornets over the hump. I don't know.  It's just hard to believe that the Hornets will actually become truly relevant when you look at their history.
    • Also, Greg is counting 20M against the cap over the next two...that's a big amount for a TE, even as great as he is.  This year he has a bit of leverage. Important piece of the passing and now running game. High cap number, and we are trying to free up space to sign the G's. Extremely healthy past.   He's just leaning on DG to extend him, and I think that we likely do....although it's not imperative.
