SATURDAY RECAP OF NFL PLAYOFFS
Well I can say if you look at my earlier picks I am 2-0 so far eventhough my point prediction in the Patriots game was off. Seahawks dominated the game against the Saints as I expected. I observed something from a few Saints defensive backs I didn’t like though. Yes I know Harvin had not played for awhile and he wasn’t in great game shape but I think some of the hits he got were sinister in nature.
Seattle home crowd were great and didn’t mind braving the rain to give them awesome support and help disrupt the Saints offence. Sean Payton is a great coach but so is Pete Carroll and although Payton’s gameplan was good, Seattle’s defense was better. Russell Wilson played OK he did not do anything particularly special but he didn’t make any costly mistakes. Marshawn Lynch seemed to be the hero again in another game against the Saints. The Saints D put on a pretty decent show but Lynch was definitely in Beastmode again. Losing the division and homefield advantage to Carolina caused the Saints to have an early exit to the playoffs.
Moving on to the Patriots and the Colts. This game displayed how great Andrew Luck is in only his second year. He delivered pin point accurate throws down the field for big plays. He was able to escape alot of the pressure that was on him in the pocket. He was able to keep the Colts in the game a few times when the Patriots seemed to be on the verge of pulling away. That aside he still showed signs of a 2nd year player by throwing multiple interceptions this week but unlike last week he was against a team that wouldn’t give up a big lead. The odds were against the Colts this week because first off they were playing in Gillette Stadium which is a very tough place to play. They were also playing against Bill Bilicheck after he had a week off to make a game plan. They were playing Tom Brady who I believe is having a MVP type season considering his limited receivers. The pats did something unexpected though; they ran the ball….ALOT. 6 Touchdowns rushing to be exact and none passing for Brady. This game was more than a win it was a message to their next opponent. This is something to confuse them so they really don’t know if they should plan for the pass or the run.
