NFL CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND RECAP

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.

WILDCARD WEEKEND SUNDAY RECAP

Image

First off let me start off saying that with my picks I was 2-2 should have been 3-1 but the cursed Chiefs caused me.  Lets move on to the Wildcard Sunday.

The game with the Chargers and Bengals was a little bit of a surprise for me because Bengals have more talent and had not lost all year at home.  Chargers first off came out with the best game plan so you have to give Kudos to the coaching staff.  Philip Rivers has been playing great this year and he put forth a next great performance.  Their running game was pretty good also helping them to control the clock.  That being said this was Cincy’s game to lose and they lost it.  For a third straight year in the playoffs Dalton choked and in all 3 games combined he only threw one TD.  The Bengals had many chances but failed to capitalize and the turnovers killed them.  I don’t think much changes need to be made to the Bengals team just gaining some mental toughness so in the future they can pull out games like this.  People will talk bad about Dalton but his 3rd year and 3rd playoff appearance.  he just has to grow in future.

Moving on to what I think had to be the game of the week.  Packers and 49ers is an all time rivalry and bound to be a great game.  The 49ers but together a really good season and the packers has come with a late surge.  The Packers may have had a slight advantage because of the great home field.  Rodgers also had something he has never had which is an amazing running back.  The day after the game all the announcers will say What went wrong for Green bay?  Truth is nothing went wrong for them.  Eddie Lacy had a decent game against a great defense.  Rodgers made some great throws and the receivers made some good catches.  Their defense who was missing a few key pieces where able to hold SF to a couple field goals when TD’s should have been scored.  The fact is at the end of the game SF played their game on the last drive.  Hard smashmouth football Frank Gore up the middle.  If Dawson missed that field goal and they went into OT and GB scored a TD we would be saying; What went wrong with SF?  I do have some criticism for Jim Harbaugh though.  It was nothing that he did this year it was his decision last year picking Kapernick over Alex Smith.  Although Smith lost the game it proved he is a much better QB than Kapernick. Kapernick is big and he is a great runner which allows him to get receivers open.  You can see from his throws though he has a big arm but he is not that accurate.  He is not making the amazing throws that he needs to.  One of his saving graces is his offensive weapons between Gore, Crabtree, Boldin and Davis; the defense had alot to deal with.  I believe that SF can still make it to the superbowl and win it but it will have to be from the defence because Kapernick will not do it on his own.
