As the NFL Turns

Postby Alvin York » Wed Dec 12, 2012 11:03 am

They're already in the stretch run in the NFL. Teams are jockeying for position in the Playoffs. Everything's on the line with 3 weeks to go. Atlanta of the NFC and Houston of the AFC have the best records. Does anyone here expect the Falcons and Texans to play for the Super Bowl? Both teams are starting to show signs of vulnerabilities with late season losses. I don't see either one of them making it to the Super Bowl. Two other teams that were juggernauts the first half of the season, San Francisco and Baltimore, appear to be fading a bit. There are three formidable peaking teams that have seemingly been flying under the radar, the Green Bay Packers, the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots. Hold up. Never count out the New York Giants in late November and December. All have elite quarterbacks, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Eli Manning. Don't be surprised if 2 or these 4 teams find their way to New Orleans.

Alv: We have no excuses for this humiliating loss. We have only ourselves to blame. Tennessee most definitely deserved to lose.

You know what the home folks of New Orleans are dreaming of, don't you? They want their homeboys, Peyton and Eli, returning to Bourbon Street to put on the biggest Super Bowl fireworks display the world has ever seen.

Green Bay blew out Houston, they are not that good. It doesn't take much this year to be the boss of the AFC, and Houston has been taking full advantage of that. New England should be the clear favorite to represent the AFC, all other teams in that conference blow. NFC is the tricky one to pick. If Green Bay has Heisman winner Charles Woodson, Clay Matthews, a healthy O-line, and all WRs healthy then they can make a legit run at the title. As you said, NY is a team to always watch out for, but history says they either won't make the playoffs or will not adavance past their first playoff appearance. Atlanta I have no faith in until they give me a reason to. They are like the Cowboys; always hyped up and can't win a game in the playoffs. San Fran is another team that should make a deep push this post-season, but I could also see their QB situation biting them in the a$$. The Bears and Seahawks will be the last two teams in the NFC, and either one of them could pull off a first round upset and are good enough to beat any AFC team except the Pats. My prediction is the Pats vs the Packers.

You make a good argument for the Patriots and Packers in the Super Bowl. The odds would go up for that scenario if
Rob Gronkowski returns for New England and Clay Mathews and Charles Woodson get back to Green Bay.

This was my preseason Superbowl pick with New England winning it all. I'm sticking by it, but I wouldn't be surprised if Green Bay beats the 49ers in the playoffs.

That is some long cat - WTF?

At the beginning of the season I was challenged to come up with an 'outside the box' super bowl matchup. I chose the Falcons and Texans. Through the first 10 weeks of the season I was looking brilliant. Not so much after last weekend though. Both teams will be in the playoffs, but I'm not holding out much hope for either of them to make it NO.

Falcons have feasted on a hilariously weak schedule, and the Texans are posers, so no.

Disguised attempt at pub for UT Paid-him-a-ton Manning... Dork dropped it in at the end. It had been a few days since the Tennerc comedy had died down, so he wanted to get his favorite subject in.

If Murderer Lewis comes back, I'll take Baltimore from the AFC and San Fran from the NFC in Harbaugh Bowl I in New Orleans.

Somebody floated the theory this thread was a disguised attempt to hype Manning. No, but since you brought his name up I'll give it a go. True, Peyton's shocked everyone including myself with his incredible play putting Denver in position to make a run at the Super Bowl. He's the talk of the town with MVP nominations filling media cyberspace. The story that's been kept on the back pages is the unsung performance of Tom Brady. Tommy boy has quietly put together another stellar year as the Patriot quarterback. He's been an surgeon out there cutting up the best strategies and tactics big time NFL DC's can muster. Even losing Gronk and having a pedestrian running game has not slowed down the Patriots. Brady's the one that scares me, the QB that do his old magic and keep Peyton out of the Super Bowl.

Peyton Manning
Passing Yards 3,812
TD passes: 30
Interceptions: 10
QBR: 82.2
QB Rating 104.0


Tom Brady
Passing Yards: 3,833
TD Passes: 29
Interceptions: 4
QBR: 80.8
QB Rating: 104.2


The saga of the Brady-Manning Feud goes on.

Manning wishes he was Tom Brady in more ways than one. Hell he wishes he was his kid brother at this point.
