In the future, chowzburgerz, I’d suggest keeping sports-related threads limited to playoff scenarios (like this one.) The NBA Finals thread worked out pretty well considering it was only one series, but the American Football thread fell flat considering how many games there were.

Now I don’t see general sports threads as being lockable even if they don’t have much activity. They’ll just go inactive and die like any other thread. But I think the playoffs for American sports, at least, is the only way to have a sports thread be active on KYM.


 
 
Pyro wouldn’t have it if I chose the Vikings in their game versus the Packers, but I do think the Packers are the better team anyway. I don’t keep up with the NFC North, all that much, but I think Aaron Rodgers 8/10 times will be able to tear apart the Vikings defense. Adrian Peterson might get another 200 yards running like the game yesterday, but I don’t think that would be enough to counter the 350 yards passing I expect from the Green Bay offense.
 
I like Seattle in the Redskins/Seahawks matchup. I really like Russell Wilson, and I think he’s a better “football” runner than RGIII (even though RGIII is probably one of the fastest people in the NFL.) The Seahawks defense should be able to slow down the Redskins’ option game more than the Redskins can stop the Seahawks’ running game. If Lynch can get loose, then he’ll go “Beast Mode” again and will cause all sorts of havoc for the Redskins in the box. And then that might open up things for Wilson to make plays downfield.
 
I’ll take the Texans against the Bengals. I don’t really know how the Bengals got into the playoffs, but I do know that A.J. Watt and the Texans’ defense is how Houston got there.
 
And just for the Chuck Pagano Leukemia story, I’ll take the Indianapolis Colts over the Ravens. Normally, I’d say that the combination of Ed Reed and Ray Lewis (despite age) is enough defensive experience, skill, and motivation to cause a lot of trouble for the Colts. But then again, having no real offense to speak of didn’t stop the Colts from getting a Wild Card spot. And every set of picks needs a fun upset.

Ok, thanks Verbose. I noticed how successful my MLB playoffs/World Series thread was successful.

Considering that Houston hasn’t been to the Super Bowl yet I’m hoping for them. And please, no more Patriots in the Super Bowl. They need to give other teams a shot. I got really mad when they beat Carolina in their first Super Bowl.

Could.

Won’t.
 
 
I gotta say that the Seahawks’ defense will probably stop the option game of Washington, but I’m not sold entirely on the Seahawks offense (other than Wilson’s decision making and Lynch’s power running.) Either way, a good rookie quarterback gets through to the next round, so that will be interesting.

I’m also hoping that the Pats can make it back to the big game, because as a Boston resident, I’m still a bit bitter about what happened with the Giants. Twice. I’ve been treating the question of whether or not they still have it in them as a less important deal than it is, though. Just the fact that we have a 35-year-old quarterback is considered cause for concern by some.

Wild card:

AFC/NFC Championship:

Now let’s see how wrong I am.

Fucking Wes Welker, man. If he hadn’t dropped the pass we could’ve won.

It still wouldn’t have made up for the fucking 18-1 record back in ‘07-’08. Pats fans are happy at the start of the season and sad at the end.

RG3 shouldn’t have even been PLAYING with that injury. It should have been Kirk Cousins. I really, REALLY hate our coach.

Denver’s been pretty tough on offense from what I’ve been spot checking. Great play from Manning to Stokely.

If you’re a fan of the NFL, then you’ve got to feel happy for Ray Lewis. His reaction after the GW kick was priceless.

That last game…

BAT-CRAZY INSANE!!

However, I am 100% not fond of a Patriots/Ravens rematch…which is most likely on the table now.

Huge upset in Denver today. Just wow. Hopefully the 49ers can pull out a win.

It was a good game. I was cheering for Seattle even though I’m from Georgia originally. So either way, I couldn’t really lose.

You have to like the Falcons’ chances next week versus the 49ers at home, in a dome, playing in their own time zone, and with some confidence now that Matt Ryan’s won a playoff game.


@chowzburgerz

Actually, even though the image is grainy, check the URL. That’s Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco’s quarterback.

Who wants to see an all-bird Super Bowl?

Atlanta is my favorite remaining team, and it would be a great story if Ray Lewis could win a championship in his last year with the odds stacked against his team.

I’m so sick of the Patriots…I hope the Ravens trounce them next week.

Least the NFC team will be different compared to past years.

49ers got burnt on that TD.

ADDED: Really…so far the Falcons are just dominating the game right now. But it’s still too early…and the 49ers did struggle in the 1st quarter against the Packers.
