Ok, week two of the playoffs here's my take

Atlanta beats Philly
Pittsburgh beats Jacksonville
Minnesota beats New Orleans (iffy)
And for a crazy upset Tennessee beats New England, really crazy

    Few of us living in this former NFL city, St. Louis, are rooting hard for any of them.

    It's almost a blessing not to be emotionally attached to a "home team".

    A good, hard played, close, game will be entertaining no matter who wins.

    Kansas City attracted attention here early in the season, and the Rams got good TV ratings.

    ( In fact, they got better TV ratings here than they got in L.A.! )

    However, nary a tear was shed when the Rams lost in the first round.


    The same if New England takes it in the ear ... or at least fails to beat the spread.

    The Patriots covering is the only bet I'm a bit worried about.

    There's some kind of lesson to be learned in NO vs Minn finish.
    Vote for the other candidate
  • Mackeral SnatcherMackeral Snatcher Posts: 10,378 AG
    Don't care about lessons.
    the $aints covered and that's good enough for me.
    Cool that the Vikings may end up hosting the Super Bowl on their home field.
    Sucks that regular fans won't have a chance to attend.

    Vikings fans deserved that finish with all the bad luck and horrible endings that have gone against them in the playoffs. One big karma miracle.

    This is a great example of what passes for "tackling" in the NFL ... .

    The results speak volumes.

    The running backs are almost as bad.

    Running out of bounds without punishing the defensive player?

    One of the pre-game talk-fests should show some clips of Jim Brown.

    He never ran out of bounds ... he would put todays "stars" to shame.

    ( An all-American in Lacrosse ... can you imagine Jim Brown running towards you, with a stick? )

    Jim brown probably would have had a 4 year career ended by knee problems or concussions.

    What planet are you from?

    Jim Brown played from 1957 - 1965.

    Read and learn, youngster.

    James Nathaniel Brown (born February 17, 1936) is a former professional American football player and actor. He was a fullback for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League (NFL) from 1957 through 1965.

    Considered to be among the greatest football players of all time.

    Brown was a Pro Bowl invitee every season he was in the league, was recognized as the AP NFL Most Valuable Player three times, and won an NFL championship with the Browns in 1964. He led the league in rushing yards in eight out of his nine seasons, and by the time he retired, he had shattered most major rushing records.

    In 2002, he was named by The Sporting News as the greatest professional football player ever.

    Brown earned unanimous All-America honors playing college football at Syracuse University in New York, where he was an all-around player for the Syracuse Orangemen football team. He also excelled in basketball, track and field, and lacrosse. The football team later retired his number 44 jersey. He was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1995.

    In his professional career, Brown carried the ball 2,359 times for 12,312 rushing yards and 106 touchdowns, which were all records when he retired.

    He averaged 104.1 rushing yards per game, and is the only player in NFL history to average over 100 rushing yards per game for his career.

    His 5.2 yards per rush is third-best among running backs. Brown was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971. He was named to the NFL 75th Anniversary All-Time Team, comprising the best players in NFL history. His number 32 jersey is retired by the Browns. Shortly after his football career, Brown became an actor, and had several leading roles throughout the 1970s.

    It's also a great example for our youth ... "Here's how to make a punk-**** tackle."

    tl;dr don't care.

    Yes, I know who Jim brown is. He was a great actor. I don't need a history lesson.

    The athletes and game today are also much different.
