2008 NFL Playoffs

Recommended Posts

I can't wait for tomorrow as the NFL postseason is probably my favorite sports time of the year. I thought I'd start this thread to just create a place to comment, vent, cheer or whatever....teams you like, teams you hate, teams you could care less about. I'll be glued to NY-TB mainly to see who Dallas plays, but to also 'scout' the teams if you will.

This is not meant to compete with the prediction threads in this section, so go check them out. And if the NFL thread is suffice...then obviously break out the shovels.

I think you all know who i'll be pulling for this post season. Im just praying the weather cools off long enough for me to get home tomorrow (Tahoe is supposed to get more snow in the next few days than ever previously recorded, and im in San Francisco). Ill be super bummed if im stuck on the road during the game.

I'm rooting for the Seahawks....... yeah that's it.

As a fellow Seahawk fan, I say good for you. I'm rooting for Seattle to not only beat the Deadskins, but embarass them off the field. I, for one, am tired of hearing of all of this junk about the Redskins and their dead player. In case the nation has forgotten, there is an NFC West champion in this game as well.

yeah, an NFC West Champion with the weakest schedule in the universe. 2 words for ya: ONE DIMENSIONAL! need I say more?

I'm a die hard Buc fan. I just don't like the way their "short" corners match with Plax, their D line goes against big backs (Jacobs), and their O-line (which is hurtin') goes against a blitz crazy D. I hope Eli is the wild card and throws 7 Ints and we bring the back to the house. I also hope they let Plax run free on some slants and the hard-hittin' safeties deal with that!

Weak NFCS or not, they won their div on a journeyman QB, a 3rd string FB, a 3rd string HB, and a hurtin' young O-line!

GO BUCS!!! FIRE THEM CANNONS!!!

My dream SB would be the Bucs beating the Pats to ruin their perfect season or beating Mullet Nation because I live in the 'burgh.

On a side note, I bet we'll see the red endzones with black writing tomorrow!!

The bucs are a team that isn't star studded and flys under the radar which makes them perfect candidates for them to go as far as the NFC title game. They have this really impressive team game that really makes them dangerous. I would really keep my eye on them. They could do some damage.

Now the cowboys on the other hand, no this not a verbal diarreah against the team, anway if they could get glenn going along side a motivated and healthy TO, there is no reason they can't douse their opponents with gasoline and torch them. They were torching teams with just TO and Crayton. Just think if they can get TO and Glenn going. They could be dangerous. Romo will get them the ball, the immovable wall of a motivated Flo, Davis and Gurode will give them the protection.

What they need to get going is the running game. This is where they need Julius Jones. Because thats the one area teams will zone in on. They are not going to beat teams throwing the ball to TO. They need to get Julius and utilize MBIII to wear down the d-line.

Defense is where they need to step up. Lately they have done a good job on its the offense that managed 12 points in 2 of 3 games. If they can keep the score down, there is no reason romo and the offense can't blitzkrieg the hell out of everyone they play.

I'm glad someone else sees my point of view on this. :D

That said...tonight I'm throwing my wholehearted support behind my team "B"...the Blacksonville Blaguars. So much so that I actually managed to score tickets to this game about an hour ago...up top in the Big Mustard Bowl a.k.a. Heinz Field (which happens to be about three minutes away from where I currently sit). Should be a good one...especially considering this the first NFL game I've ever been to, period.

The funny thing is, though the Steelboyz gon have plenty of support tonight, the general consensus among all I've talked to about this game around here is...well, let's just say something close to 70% of them think the Steelers might just get beat.

I sho' hope their gut feelings hold true...go Blags!!!

EDIT: Oh--and about this here:

Today's games: Seahawks beat Washington. Steelers beat Jags. Same as it ever was.

Blacksonville has won three straight against Pittsburgh...two of those on Heinz Field. Just sayin... (Let me have that moral victory going in, okay??? ^_^ )

I don't know, the Steelers seem really banged up, and Jacksonville's probably the hottest team in the league right now, New England included (Don't put any stock in Jacksonville's loss last week, a lot of their starters weren't playing).

Yeah. How about home field advantage? Oh, and two years ago when Washington couldn't move the ball against a defense made of turtles and snails, they got whupped. I'm sorry, but this sappy ass crap about Taylor has done nothing but fuel the flames of seeing these... chumps fall even more. I want to see them suffer and what better way then to see them fall against a so-called 'One Dimensional' team.

I'm not putting any stock in the Jags loss last week. I am however putting stock in The Steelers never losing at home twice to the same team and the horrific field conditions at Heinz. I'd love to see Jacksonville win this game but I don't think they can overcome the conditions. The Jaguars would be better off it it were cold and snow instead of rain and mud.

Plus, it seems like the "team no one wants to play" is gone after their first playoff game every year. That's also why I think Seattle easily knocks of Washington.

Anyone see those sweet lime green shoes some Seahawks are wearing?

They look surprisingly sweet. I'm not a big lime green fan, but those look nice.

Anyone else notice Todd Collins looks like he doesn't belong there? Every shot of his face, he looks nervous or rattled or disinterested. I don't see any fire or aggression in his eyes. Has he always been like that?

Now, where is that donjuan guy at, hm? Why I ask?

Well, he did say Seattle was one dimensional. Well, to me, it seemed like Washington was the one dimensional team out there. They couldn't run the ball which put the pressure on old man Collins.

Great win, great performance by the defense and now bring on the Packers.

Nah, Seattle was one dimensional. It's just that the dimension they possessed was the defensive secondary running back intercepted passes for touchdowns... :)
