2018 Wild Card Thread

Post by S197 » Tue Jan 02, 2018 3:23 pm

Who's everyone rooting for? What do you want to see?

Bills vs Jaguars: Cheering for the Bills and I think they have a good shot. Jags limped into the playoffs.

Titans vs Chiefs: Tough one, on one hand I'd like to see my classmate (Mariota) do well but my bro is a Chief's fan. So I'll go Chiefs. Plus I think they're capable of beating NE in Foxboro again.

Falcons vs Rams: Part of me wants to see the Rams #1 offense against our #1 defense again. But pretty agnostic on this one, hope it's a good game.

Panthers vs Saints: I'll never cheer for the Saints so I guess Panthers.

Bills, Titans, Panthers, and Falcons. But there's all four road teams so I'm sure that won't happen.

Go Bills! They are really not supposed to be here, so I bet they are HELLA thankful for getting in.
There are only two seasons that exists: football season and waiting for football season.

There is a video going around of Bills fans celebrating when they got in. It's pretty awesome. Good for them.

Crazy. Look at the chances to make the playoffs at the start of the game between the Ravens and Bills.

Alex smith showing why I think he should get a serious look if he becomes a free agent. And the Mariota TD wow! Shame he has crap receivers like Decker.

Shocking first game. Goes to show you can't be sloppy in the playoffs.

I love that the chiefs lost. So TEN will go to NE unless Buffalo wins tomorrow.

Falcons handling the Rams so far 13-0. Falcons a dangerous 6th seed. Wouldn't be a surprise if they won today and against the eagles

Rams woke up, only down 3 at half. 13-10

Wow upset Saturday. Falcons basically wore the Rams down like we did. Special teams was a big factor in this game, Falcons SP was great, rams pretty poor.

New England had a pretty easy schedule and Titans
showed some heart. With the Patriots have an internal
struggle who knows.

Bills @ Jaguars was pretty lame so far.

Defenses dominating and 3-3 at the half. :sleep:

Bottles is so bad. I don't think either team makes the playoffs if they were in the NFC.

I used to despise Buck and generally dislike Aikman. However, after listening to them this year I have reached the conclusion that while Buck is still annoying, Aikman is a complete Moron. It is really bad if you listen to Romo call a game with Nantz at Noon and then go to Fox at 315 and it is like "Holy crap my head is going to explode over how bad this is."

Aikman has nothing insightful to say. His comments are all basicaly this:

"[Insert Marquee Player's Name here] is pro's pro and he does what it take to get the job done."

OR

"[Insert popular team's name here] are a good team and they know what they have to do to get this done."

OR

"[Insert popular player's name here] is really good at what he does and so and so has to do a better job if he wants to stop him."

It hurt my brain typing that...

I think Romo and Greg Olson (when he announced that game against the Rams) will lead a Flux of younger announcers that will replace guys like Aikman and Fouts (although I do like Fouts as an announcer). I can't believe how good Romo is at color commentary. He found his next career, that's for sure.

I actually really enjoyed Greg Olson announcing. Was pretty awesome at it. I still disagreed with him being allowed to do it, but he was good at it.

Agreed. We'll see/hear him on Sundays when he's done.

Olsen did very well. I wish Mayock could get a primetime gig.
