Saturday Wildcard football was indeed wild and was probably not what someone who bets on football would like.  The two games combined was a deficit of 3 points.

Lets start off with Indy which showed a hell of a lot of heart.  In the first half of the season Indy was a darkhorse to the superbowl.  Times have changed and no they will not make it this year but they played a game of the ages.  This first off put to bed any doubt from last year that RG3 should have been the first pick.  Luck is great and he has no quit in him.  KUDOS also goes to the coach who after being down by 28 still had his players feeling that they could win.  Now that is out of the way lets get to the real reason why the Chiefs lost.   In an earlier post I picked them to win and really they should have but in all honesty it seemed that they were cursed.  The injury monster was out in full force and seemed to take all prisoners except Alex Smith and Andy Reid.  Lets give a shout out to Smith first off who played a Hell of a game and showed he is one of the better QB’s in the NFL.  I will go as far as to say with him instead of Kapernick SF may have Won the Superbowl.  You have to also see that Andy Reid did an amazing job in turning around the team and getting them into the playoffs. Jamaal Charles is one of the best running backs in the league and they key to the Chiefs offence.  He left the game early with a concussion and that may have sealed their fate because he was their main way to control the ball and time of possesion.  The loss of Flowers their best CB and Avery a very fast receiver really contributed to their late game collapse.

The Philly and Saints game despite how powerful both offences were seemed relatively low scoring.  Drew Brees was off target for alot of the game not really connecting as he usually does.  The already beaten up Saints secondary lost probably their best remaining CB to a possible concussion.  This loss was quickly taken advantage of by the Eagles defence.  Before this however my theory on Nick Foles held true.  Teams before the year started only really had game tape on Vick and his tendencies etc.  They had very little to go on when it came to Foles that led to his success.  Foles is not a bad QB but he is not great.  The NFL is a league of adjustment and next year Foles will have a hard time achieving the success he did this year.  First off he is not a tested QB they barely pulled out a victory against the Cowboys with a backup QB.  He also only offers a pocket presence and has no ability to run which makes him one dimensional and eventually teams will be able to prepare better for him.

Let me start by saying I was kind of disapointed because my Dolphins choked and didn’t make it but I am an NFL fan so i will still enjoy this wildcard weekend.

We should begin in the AFC.


These are two teams despite their record who kind of limped into the playoffs when compared to their start. Indy’s realized that the loss of reggie wayne was a pretty big one. Andrew luck is still a pretty impressive quarterback that helped them survive a pretty weak AFC South. The Chiefs on the other hand was a defensive juggernaut for most of the begining of the year. After meeting Denver for the first game it seemed the defence has collpased and the offence has taking over. The Chiefs don’t have what it takes to win a Superbowl but they do have a better defence than the Colts. This game will either be a low scoring or a shootout no inbetween. The team that wins the rushing yards game will win the game. Both teams except for the Chiefs dwayne Bowe have all average recivers that will not be the key.

My Prediction Cheifs 24 to Colts 17


This will be an exciting game all around. Both teams are very aggresive and want to move on badly. The chargers were able to align all the stars with the right teams losing and them winning to advance. A team like this is dangerous they are riding a High and now that they are in pose a real threat to any team. They have a great QB in Philip Rivers and a running back in Ryan Matthews who finally has durability and it living up to his draft expectations. Keenan Allen is an amazing young wide reciever who give them a chance on every throw. Cinicinati has been a playoff team the last few years and had their hopes destroyed by the Texans. This year the Texans are far from the playoffs leaving no obstacles for them. Andy Dalton wants to silence all of the critics who are not sure which side he is on a line between good and bad qb. AJ green should rank in the top 4 of any Wide reciever conversation in the NFL. The Bengals are ready to be great and are unbeaten at home for the year.

Bengals 31 Chargers 21


The Eagles are playing great ball coming to the end of the season. Shady Mccoy is running over the competition and Nick foles is making it look quite easy at QB. They are supposed to have the top ranked offence in the NFL. They are at home and are playing pretty well. The Saints have been playing well also this year. Late in the season they have tappered off just a little which probably caused them to lose the NFC South to the Panthers. They do not have an elite running back but sprooles is great in the screen game and their passing game opens up the ability for them to run. This will be an offensive shootout in which the Saints have a better defence and the better defensive coordinator. Foles is a good QB but not as good as his numbers are. The truth is many teams spent the year preparing for Vick. Now that the Eagles have Foles there is not much tape on him to really scheme for him during the season. Make no mistake though Payton will have a plan for him in the postseason.



This is going to be the best game of the wildcard weekend by far. It is the game that has 2 teams in it that have a legitamte Superbowl chance. The Packers have a combination of luck and skill. Aaron Rodgers was out for weeks and they were able to oull out a couple close wins and a tie to win a NFC North that it seems Detroit or Chicago did not want. With rodgers and randall cobb back the packers have a big boost in offence. They have always had Jordy nelson and james jones and a few young recivers have made this offence very dangerous. Eddie Lacy is an animal and the RB that Rodgers never had. He gives them the ability for a dual threat offence. Their defence however is not very good and will depend on the offence to win this game. The 49ers have an amazing defence. They hold their opponents to low scores alot of times. Kapernick has been a disapointment this year when compared to last year. This year his problem has been teams have already found schemes that work against him and his offensive weapons were limited. Just in time Crabtree is back and he is an amazing reciver that can really open up the offence. With frank gore managing the clock with his tough running and coach’s innovative plays the 49ers will pull it out in a close 1.

Every season there are fans in both basketball and football who’s team loses and they say hey….games are fixed. However up until now I have always been a person who believed that it was just nonsence. After week 16 of the nfl season i am not so sure that I am a believer anymore.

The dolphins and ravens had an oppurtunity to end the seasons of both pittsburg and san diego with wins this week. the ravens was playing a very good patriots team so their loss was kind of understandable. the Dolphins however which is my team layed an absolute egg against a buffalo team with a backup qb, whose staring WR was out and lost 2 other WR in the game. It was obvious to anyone that if their season had been on the line in that game they may have had a better effort. Also just on cue…the chargers pull out a win and so does the steelers to make it 4 teams that have a chance for the last AFC playoff berth.

In the NFC the same problem seemed to exist. Dallas pulled off a win at nearly the end of the game to make sure they still have a chance next week in a game against the eagles for everything. The Lions lost eliminating them but despite the packers Lost they still have a chance to win the division next week against the Bears. The Bears had a chance to lock up the NFC North Title and really did not show up at all. Arizona beat Seatle at home for the 1st time in 2 years to give themself still an oppertunity.

What does this all mean? To me it seems like a conspiracy. The NFL does not want to lose a week of football revenue. If all the playoffs seeds were locked up this week there would be not much football to watch in week 17. It would be like a glorified preseason game. All of the playoffs teams would be resting their starters and it would be less fans in the stands and watching on tv because no1 would care.

So although no1 will ever know if some of these games are really fixed at times….but I think the evidence is there for both sides.
