Championship Sunday

Post by Mothman » Sun Jan 24, 2016 2:10 pm

Who wins today and advances to the Super Bowl?

Both of these seem like "pick 'em" games to me. I'll pick with Carolina and New England but I could just as easily imagine Arizona and Denver winning.

I think the Pats are gonna squish Denver.
I want to see AZ win...but my gut says Panthers. I think Palmer is gonna turn it over.

Esiason just said that the only 1st rd pick starting on the NE offense is Stephen Jackson, who was a last minute pick up off the scrap heap....amazing~

I do not like him one bit but Belichicken maybe the best coach in the history of the NFL.
I want to see Arizona beat the Pats in the Super Bowl, those are my picks.

Nope, not even close, Lombardi, Halas, Noll, Walsh, all better coaches then Bellichek, unless 4 Championships wins with two seperate cheating scandals somehow eclipses the same amount or more with zero cheating scandals.

I think, for whatever reason, that its going to be Panthers and Cardinals.

BB is an incredible coach....if your standard involves logic and objective observation.

Brady really looks off today.

Agree on both counts.

Denver's D is playing tough ball. I like it!

Brady looks off partly because he's getting pressured so frequently. Also some triple Gronk coverage.

He is a great coach, I completely a hundred percent agree.

But he isn't the best to ever live, there are coaches with the same amount of Championship success with two less cheating scandals.

Amen to that. The Broncos line is mauling them. Curious to see if they can adjust~

Brady isn't really brady when he's getting hit. Its one reason I could never consider him anywhere near the top 10 all time QBs. He wouldn't have been able to hang in a previous era.

Idk about top 10, but I know in terms of top 5 he simply doesn't have the production.

"production" is relative. Brady would have washed out if he played even just in the early 90s, let alone any time before that.

Is production really relative? I mean, its thinking like that that got people calling Favre a top 5 QB of all time, I can see no better measure of where a player stacks up then what he actually accomplishes on the field.

At any rate, I somewhat agree, I think he might not have washed out completely, but I doubt he would be the player he is today.

Denver defense is going to win this game. At least I hope so. Sick of Brady and the Pats.
