Default NFL Playoffs

Great games on Saturday, glad the the Patriots lost but I'm a little disappointed the Bills did. I'm really looking forward to the Eagles and Seahawks today.

Looking back now it certainly was. Another awful pick was the Kevin White pick, what could've been.

Best Wild Card Weekend ever? Seriously, it seemed like all of them came down to the wire.

Do you guys feel like the push off was PI or no? Maybe I am being a homer but there was so much slap fighting going on it looked good to me but ESPN is all over it for offensive PI.

Sad for Buffalo, I was a big fan in thr late 80s and 90s until they crushed my dreams. Norwood missing that field goal ... flashback... triggered!

I guess if you wanted to be really hardcore it was, but I'm a fan of letting these guys play. Again if it was blatantly obvious then it should be called but if you need to watch a replay over and over again then it's not PI. That's my opinion at least and it has nothing to do with Rudolph making the play.

I have a real good friend who is a Bills fan and was pulling for them.

I have not gone back to look but I thought that there was contact between the defender and Rudolph before the push off that was initiated by the defender. If that is indeed the case, then it seems the push off was just a continuation of that and a no-call might be justified as a result.

I felt bad for Buffalo .....especially on that last drive. First when the QB went to run right the pulling guard (number 60) ran right by the guy that ended up tackling the QB behind the line. There was no one else there. He blocked no one. If he blocked him it would have been a big gain. Well at least 10 yards and a first down. Then the next play the QB rolls right and completes a pass for a first down and put them ( I believe) within field goal range to win it. But the offensive tackle was penalized for a crack back block which nullified the play. It was an obvious penalty that was totally unnecessary.

These playoffs are fun to watch for sure. That comeback today by the Chiefs was crazy. I can only think of Reich and the Bills against the Titans or NE vs the Falcons as an equivalent. You see that more in college, hardly in the NFL.

Not that I want to get the meat helmets out. But it goes to show you in this day of pass happy offenses that defense and running the ball still win. SF instilled their will in Minnesota and the the Titans did the same on both NE and Baltimore. Maholmes is just that good otherwise KC would had been out. The same goes for Rodgers.

So you either need an elite run game and defense (Alabama) or an elite QB (Burrow, Lawrence, Newton, et al) to win in football?

Who'd have thought?

I know, right! I will retract and say that just because you have an elite qb does not guarantee youíre winning a championship. I think BK has finally gotten one of the codes right, in having a top 15 defense. Now he needs a good running game or elite passer. Iíd prefer an elite running game.
