SUNDAY RECAP OF NFL PLAYOFFS
Well if you look at my previous picks for the weekend I was 3-1. I could have been 4-0 had it not been for some bad coaching but we will get into that.
The game with the 49ers and the Panthers turned out basically like how I thought it would. The Panthers started out somewhat dominant but in the end 49ers pulled away. The Panthers had a great season but their problem is on offence. Steve Smith is their best receiver and while he is great he is the only legitimate option. Lafell and Ginn are far from reliable and didn’t make any dynamic plays. On the 49ers side of the ball i will say off the top that i am still not impressed by Kapernick this year. His athletic ability allows him to mask his bad quarterback play. He is surrounded by talent namely Boldin, Davis and Crabtree who makes him look very good. He has to make the good decisions if the 49ers plan to get to and win the superbowl this year.
The Chargers and Broncos game showed a few interesting things. It proved what I heard on the Jay Mohr show that Wisenhunt, the Chargers OC interviewing for other jobs during the week HURT the team. It was a horrible coaching job because their star running back Matthews was obviously hurt, it was then they should have switched their offence gameplan. They waited until they were down bad to start throwing when it was wayyyyyyy too late. This game also showed that the Broncos are not as good as they are supposed to be. Chargers played an absolutely atrocious game for at least 3 quarters yet still had a chance to come back at the end. Manning played well but it seems they are not as invincible as they were earlier in the year.
