SUPERBOWL PREDICTIONS

SUPERBOWL PREDICTIONS.

This is one of the greatest NFL Seasons in the past few years having some interesting matchups during the year.  However this Superbowl will be one the the best Superbowl’s there has ever been.  We have the best offense in the NFL against the top defense in the league.  Peyton Manning the Sheriff against Richard Sherman the “trash talker”.  This is one Superbowl where there was not a clear outright favorite however Denver is the odds on favorite.

The initial concern of weather most likely snow seem to no longer be a factor.  It will be very cold though.  Lets talk about Denver’s offense first.  Manning is of course the centerpiece he is the reason they have a passing and running game.  Moreno is a decent running back and he is tough, he takes advantage of the defense being afraid of the dynamic passing game.  Manning is the best at the line at changing the play and exposing the opposition.  His arm isn’t what it use to be but Denver is very good at the short pass turning into big play ability.  Welker, Decker and the two Thomas could all be the star receiver on a team and covering them all is nearly impossible.  Seahawks are however the one team that has the secondary that has a chance to cover them.  In the championship game the Patriots; before the injury to Talib were able to contain the Broncos receivers.  The Seahawks have a much better secondary but Denver will still have it’s good plays.

On the next side of the ball lets look at the Denver defense.  The defense is good although it is not what people thought it might be earlier in the season.  They are ok against the run and the pass but they are nothing special. The Seattle offense on its face is not that explosive but they proved against the 49ers that they are better than we thought.  Russell Wilson is a very good second year quarterback that uses his legs to extend a play.  He also has a big arm and he is able to run when necessary.  Marshawn Lynch will be a key to it all whether he can run against Denver or not.  His runs are very important to open up the pass game for two very good receivers Tate and Baldwin.  They are not the fastest or tallest but they are physical and give great effort.  However if he can stay on the field Percy harvin will be very important.  When you think about athletes in the NFL he is one of the best.  His speed and good play could open the lanes for the other guys.  An even though he hasn’t really played all year; signing him in the offseason would pay off if only for this game.

At the end of it all despite the fact that none of the team has ever been to a Superbowl I think that the Seahawks will win 26-20

PEYTON MANNING NEEDS THIS SUPERBOWL

Image

PEYTON MANNING NEEDS THIS SUPERBOWL

Peyton will most likely go down as the best or one of the best passers in history.  There is little flaws in his game and little people can criticize him about.  But there are two things people say; HE DOES’T PLAY WELL IN COLD AND HE HAS ONLY WON 1 SUPERBOWL.

Lets start off with his positives; he is an amazing professional and does well with the media. Manning is a hard worker and spends numerous hours in preparation both on the field and off. He is great at analyzing defenses and exploiting their weaknesses.  He is also great at adjusting his game to cover any weakness he has.  So why then does he need this superbowl?

We have to go to Dan Marino who many consider the top passer in the game.  However he will never be known as the greatest because he has never WON  superbowl.  So Peyton has won 1 superbowl and lost one but the truth is to give himself a chance to be known as the best he has to win this one.  John Elway has won 2, Tom Brady has won 3, Joe Montana has won 4 and at the end of the day that matters.  It is kind of unfair to judge a quarterback’s legacy on how many Superbowl’s he has won seeing that he only plays on 1/3 of the the team but that is the way it is done.

If Manning does not win this superbowl he will be 1-2 in superbowls and it will tarnish his legacy. In all honesty it probably will be his last superbowl when you consider how hard it is to make the superbowl back to back years.  Losing this game will also bring out the detractors who will echo that he plays badly in the cold.  Manning has been consistent in the regular season but not as much success deep in the playoffs.  Reason for this is not fully his fault because in playoffs teams scheme to take him away and the rest of his team does not step up.  No matter what his teammates do this year Peyton has to leave it all on the field because this will be his defining moment.

NFL CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND RECAP

Image

NFL CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND RECAP

Starting off I will admit that I was 0-2 this weekend but there were certain keys two both games that I will go into.  This was one of the greatest football weekends in a long time.

I wondered at the beginning of the weekend why wasn’t the Patriots Broncos game the last one seeing that it had the marquee matchup with Brady and Manning.  I guess however the NFL knew what it was doing when it put the 49ers and Seahawks game for primetime.  The key to this game was when Talib went out of the game; That pretty much sealed the Patriots fate. All of the time that he was in he was able to shut down Demarius Thomas and when he went out Thomas was able to shred their not so good defense.  Make no mistake  that the scheming by Belichick actually gave them a chance defensively but eventually their flaws were exposed because Denver has way too much weapons.  The Pats should be applauded for their success so far because they have done so without alot of key pieces.  On the offense Welker was now on the Broncos, Hernandez is in jail, Gronk out again and besides Edelman they have no real receiver because Amandola has not lived up to expectation.  On defense big pieces like Spikes and Wilfork didn’t play.  In the end Congrats to the Broncos but would have hoped that pats had more of their people so we could have had a better game.

San Fran and Seattle OMG!!!!!! this game might be better than the superbowl.  It was the perfect game; one that it was a 50 / 50 chance for anyone to win in the last 50 seconds.  It was a great game and who could have asked for more. It did prove one thing that I have been saying in the past; that Kapernick was not playing well as a quarterback.  This was against the best defense in the league and it showed his flaws.  His running ability and strong arm allowed him in the past to get away with some fundamental mistakes in the past but not against this amazing defense.  He ran very well in this game but he threw badly.  I think he gave up on alot of plays and instead of using his legs to open up passes downfield he chose to run alot of the times.  Make no mistake he was successful in the running game but he made too many mistakes.  He tried to fit in balls that were bad decisions and on that last play instead of throwing up a ball that only Crabtree can catch; he threw a jumpball into double coverage.  Coach made one big mistake and it was not in this game.  His big mistake was picking Kapernick over Alex Smith.  Alex Smith would not have made those bad throws and I believe with him they might have won the superbowl last year.  But on to the NFC champions; Pete Carroll came up with one hell of a game plan.  Percy Harvin was out and I was surprised the offensive output that Seattle had.  The 3 receivers Baldwin, Tate and Kearse showed toughness and big play ability.  Russell Wilson was able to extend alot of plays with his legs and besides his opening drive fumble took care of the ball well most of the game.  The defining moment however was what Seattle thrived in during the year….their defense.  Richard Sherman was a stud as usual and made an amazing athletic play to tip the ball and enable the interception.  he deserves the player of the game award and I am happy for a team like Seattle who have come a long way.

SATURDAY RECAP OF NFL PLAYOFFS

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.

Aside

DIVISIONAL

 

THE DIVISIONAL ROUND PLAYOFFS

Chargers and the Broncos

Let’s start off with the Chargers and the Broncos.  Peyton Manning is one of the best QB’s ever if not the best.  His only critisicm is that he can’t play in cold and he is not as great in the playoffs.  The cold itself may not be a factor maybe it’s just playing away from home that might be a little difficult for him.  The reality of it all is that Peyton isnt completely to blame for when his teams failed in playoffs past.  Teams in the playoffs make their defensive schemes to take away Manning and the rest of the team does not step up that is why they lose.  Denver is a team that has alot of pressure on it.  It is not one of them teams that sees going to the playoffs as an accomplishment; they are built to win now and anything short of at least a Superbowl appearance is not accepatble.  Philip Rivers is an amazing QB and the Chargers are playing with house money.  These guys with skill and alot of luck got into the playoffs so it is an exciting ride and I don’t think it will end this week.  It will be a very close game it could be a shootout but the Chargers will find a way to pull it out because these teams see each other twice a year.

CHARGERS 34 BRONCOS 31

Colts and Patriots

The matchup that most people would love is if Broncos won and Colts won this week so that the AFC Championship would be Luck against his predecessor Manning.  Sorry to say that won’t happen this year.  The Patriots will win this one.  Andrew Luck showed us last week that in his second year he is even better than we thought.  They proved to be a team that despite losing a big piece in Reggie Wayne; they came together and steped up to the occasion.  This game will definitely be close and despite the power of both offences it may be relatively low scoring.  This year Brady is playing lights out and no the stats are not there to prove that.  They have lost Gronk, Hernandez and Welker which were Brady main targets and Brady was still able to get 12 wins.  With a week off to prepare expect Belicheck and Brady to be ready to win.

PATS 27 COLTS 20

 

Panthers and 49ers

The Panthers deserve alot of praise for turning around their season after starting slow they finished very strong.  Cam Newton has matured through this season and is showing why he is a superstar.  They have a great running game and dominate the line of scrimage.  Their defence is one of the best in the league. They however will not win this game they have no chance.  These teams have played earlier this year and Carolina came out with the win.  This time the 49ers will come out with the victory.  These teams are known for the same things.  They all run the ball well, have QB’s who are athletic, great defences and can dominate the clock.  The difference in this is Michael Crabtree.  This one man changes 49ers from an average offence to a very good one.  Their passing game will be the key and Carolina only has Steve Smith who is a real receiver. San Fran had Boldin and davis all year but that 3rd  reciever will be a big impact.

49ERS 24  PANTHERS 13

 

Saints and Seahawks

Sean Payton is an amazing coach and showed last week that the Saints can pull off a win on the road in the playoffs.  He will be doing things to try and simulate the envirnoment they will be in this week in Seattle.  Truth is though the Saints defence has lost some key people on defence and despite Rob Ryan being a good defensive coordinator they won’t be able to hold Seattle in check.  Seattle does not have an amazing passing offence but their great running game allow for a decent pass game.  Drew Brees will have a difficult night against this amazing defence seeing that the Eagles defence made it hard for him.  Seattle’s defence will show up in a big way in this game and help Seattle to make it to next week to face San Fran.

SEAHAWKS 21 SAINTS 13
