NFL Blitz: Divisional Playoffs

Stats of the Week:
1. Tom Brady completed 92.9% of his pass attempts
2. Ryan Grant fumbled twice in the span of 58 seconds
3. Brett Favre has thrown a touchdown pass in 17 consecutive post-season games
4. In Wild Card Weekend no rung back had more then 70 yards, in the first divisional game Ryan Grant had over 200.
5. Rodney Harrison has an interception in 4 consecutive playoff games.
6. As of last Sunday at 1:00 Philip Rivers and Eli Manning had never won a playoff game. As of 8:00 this Sunday both had won a pair and are in Conference championship games.
7. “America’s team” have not won a playoff game in 12 years.
8. The New York Giants are 9-1 on the road
9. No Reciever had over 100yds through the air despite the fact five quarterbacks threw for over 200 yds
10. Here’s why I’ve believed Tom Brady is better then Peyton Manning and have for many years, Peyton Manning is 7-7 in the post season, Tom Brady is 13-2.

Thoughts:
As a New England fan nothing scares me more then the possibility of a Green Bay – New England Superbowl, everything in that game just seems to tilt towards Green Bay.

I’ll be disappointed if Tony Dungy retires. As much as I disagree with his views on certain topics, he seems like a genuinely nice guy and by all player and game accounts a terrific coach.

Found this on ESPN’s Page 2 this week the scouting report for Tom Brady “Slow, lacks mobility, good height, no real arm strength.”

I’ll also be disappointed if Mike Holmgreen retires, that certainly not the way a probably Hall of Fame coach should end his career.

With the dungy possible retirement and more then likely departure of Dallas Clark because of free agency, can’t help but think it might be the year the Jaguars win the AFC South the next time around.

Who would’ve thought in Week 2, when Green Bay played New York, and New England played San Diego we’d be getting our preview of the Championship games. Nuts.

I owe an apology to Norv Turner, I said the chargers were winning based on talent, but the fact that he stuck to his game plan without LT or Rivers showed guts, he played to win, not to keep it close, and made some great coaching decisions.

Jeff Fisher is having fits somewhere, Billy Volek looked like Johnny Unitas on that drive to take the lead, no idea where it came from.
Philip Rivers is a “Grade A” douche. And If LaDanian “I hate New England” Tomlinson dares to mention a word about New England not being classy this week, someone had better show what a classless douchebag his starting QB is.

Read the ravens are interested to talking to Shottenheimer, be a perfect fit for a running powered offense with a great tight end and quick linebackers. Sounds almost like the team that he got fired from. Although McGahee is not LT good, it’s still a great running offense in Baltimore.

If Crennel somehow wound up Miami (which I heavily doubt), we’d be a Josh McDaniels to Buffalo away from a Belichick/Parcells trained AFC East head coaching staff.

Have to believe Michael Turner is going to be heavily wanted this off-season. After McFadden in the draft he’s a fantastic runner who has been over-shadowed by L.T. his entire career.

I’d be stunned if Tony Sparano isn’t named Miami head coach by the end of next week. That just seemed to fall nicely into place with the Dallas loss this weekend.

Championship Matchups:
(3) San Diego Chargers (13-5) Versus (1) New England Patriots (17-0) January 19th 3:00 PM on CBS

(5) New York Giants (12-6) Versus (2) Green Bay Packers (14-3) January 20th 6:30 on FOX

I was hoping for a Manning Super Bowl (Giants-Colts) but too bad that can't happen. I'm a huge Giants fan and so glad that they beat Dallas but Green Bay is gonna be brutal, especially with that Wisconsin weather.

Obviously I'm hoping the Giants pull it off, but I'll root for the winner of the game in the Super Bowl.

I just got tickets for the Packers Giants game. I'm pretty sure that the pack is going to destroy the Giants, but you never know. I think the Packers actually have an ok chance at beating the Patriots in the Super Bowl. Even if the Packers lose against the Giants or the Patriots, this season has still been unbelievable.

I'm rooting for your Packers now, Daff. They have to go all the way.
