Icing the kicker fails more often than it succeeds.

I was complaining that he did it.  it really is stupid - say he misses the first one - you just gave him a second chance.

It's a smart move when the kicker is known for missing. Give him more kicks to maybe miss.

Giving him more kicks to miss would only work if the opposing coach gets to pick the result they like best. I don't really get the logic behind giving them a chance to get a free practice kick. Especially in an outdoor stadium, it must be a great boon for the kicker. And I think the rules now say you can't call two timeouts in a row? Is that college? So the kicker got a practice kick to judge the wind, and he knows the next snap will go off without interruption. I've long thought the best strategy to throw off the kicker would be to just let it go ahead... the kickers expect the timeout at this point, and actually getting that first snap without a whistle will probably mess with their head as much as anything else the opposing coach can do.

So if the ball would have bounced the other way, the Eagles would have been eliminated & Cody Parkey would be the hero of the game right?

Yep. That's the life of a kicker.

Of course. Just like Scott Norwood would have been the greatest Bills player of all time not named OJ Simpson.

most of you are really bad at picking football games.  You should probably just stop.

My picks were all perfect. You don't know about them though, they're from another site.

I love watching Foles make another run in the playoffs. 

 

...And Chicago, they've had what 10 championships in the past couple decades? I don't feel bad for them and they need to give Parkey a break. It seemed like one the Eagles got a piece of the kick and still almost went in. I feel like this is Steve Bartman all over again...

I think it's going to be Dallas and Philadelphia in the NFC Championship.

 

In the AFC Championship, I think it's going to be Los Angeles vs. Indianapolis. Only because I find the fact StubHub Center, a stadium seating only 30,000, hosting a conference championship game to be hilarious.

I'm thinking the Chiefs better win their game on Saturday, because if we go into Sunday with a real chance of the Patriots having the AFC-CG at home, then I'm just going to assume right then and there that they're going to make it to the Super Bowl again. AFC teams piss their pants every time they go to Foxboro.

 

(Patriots have won their last 15 13 home games against AFC teams and, in the Belichick/Brady era, they're 19-3 at home in the postseason, and 8-0 since 2013. So, yeah.)

Except the Ravens, who are 2-2 and probably should be 4-0 at Foxboro in the playoffs. But even they are winless there since ‘12.

Glad to see the Rams and Cowboys in classic sets. It's going to be a gorgeous game.

 

 

 

 

The Rams look wrong in navy/white. How they've considered eliminating their classic colors I don't get it, except maybe doing a needless change for change sake.
