I won’t pull any punches with this statement: Not only was Super Bowl LIII a big letdown, it was the most poorly played “big game” I’ve ever watched in the NFL. With the exception of the 2012 BCS Championship Game (in college football), Alabama 19-0 over LSU, I can’t remember watching two more incompetent offenses […]Read More Predicting the NFL’s 2019-20 Playoff Teams + My Super Early Power Rankings
I’m not going to lie…it’s sad that there are only two NFL games this weekend. While most people get excited for the Super Bowl, I get sad for the end of the season. Hell, I’m more sad at the end of the college football season than anything…but that’s besides the point. I was wrong when […]Read More Conference Championship Game Picks: Will the favorites win again?? + Grading the new coaching hires
Last week’s picks were flat-out awful. Terrible. Couldn’t do worse. I’m a sports radio guy…and I went 0-4 straight up? Are you serious? So this week I’m going to reset my playoff predictions and we’ll see if I can get it right the rest of the way. I am due for a 4-0 week after […]Read More NFL Divisional Round: A do-over for my playoff picks
Spoiler alert: I’ve never been all that great at picking the NFL’s postseason…so by all means, fade the following playoff predictions as you wish. I’m not sure why – maybe it’s that when I pick all favorites, it comes up underdogs and vice versa. So I’m going to split the difference this year. My AFC […]Read More Predicting the NFL Playoffs: An underdog comes out of the AFC & a favorite wins the NFC
Is it wrong to admit that I believe Super Bowl LII was the most entertaining in my lifetime? Off the top of my head it was one of the most compelling games from start-to-finish that I can remember. Here are three leftover (and probably somewhat crazy) thoughts from the day after the game: 1. Doug […]Read More Three Post-Super Bowl Thoughts + Predicting the NFL’s 2018-19 Playoff Teams
I wish I could say I was excited for these two Conference Championship games but I’m really not. Where are the storylines? None of these teams make for all that appealing of a Super Bowl to me. See my rankings of the potential matchups below (from most interesting to least interesting) and tell me you […]Read More Conference Championship Game Predictions: Can Jacksonville pull off the HUGE upset?
I’m actually looking forward to the day Tom Brady and Bill Belichick retire and/or leave New England. Picking against New England with both still at the helm is foolish – you’ll be wrong a lot more often than you’re right. And honestly, talking about parity in the NFL with the Patriots still in the peak […]Read More Divisional Playoff Predictions: Favorites in the AFC, Road Teams in the NFC?
