Divisional Saturday

I'm entirely relaxed about this one. I would just like to see a good game in which Handsome Jimmy is sacked 37 times, Dalvin Cook rushes for 190 yards and 3 TDs, and Kirk Cousins goes 7 for 10 for 102 yards, 1 TD, and no interceptions. But I have no actual expectations. As always, SKOL!

In the other game, I have a hard time seeing a banged-up Seattle team beating Green Bay. And nothing could be sweeter than going to Lambeau and winning the NFC championship on the frozen tundra.

"Nothing could be sweeter"

Keep dreaming, Vike. But good luck against the 49ers all the same they look pretty tough!

Despite my last NFL related comment being removed, the NFL being the only subject I feel informed enough to comment upon, I'll take another swing. I don't truly trust either Minnesota or San Fran in this game, but it's hard not to like the home favorite to win. Minnesota did some work lqst week though, beating NO in NO is no easy task. The other game, nothing against Vrabel and the Titans, but BAL has been the best team all year. I want to see them in a KC showdown/ SB against the winner of the NFC.

That Z-man might have a point, you sound delusional there, GB will beat the Hags go to Frisco get whooped on and us Pack fans can come to realize there is really little to football life other than beating Chicago, and that is good enough.

Vox cracks me up sometimes

Blogger Manuel January 11, 2020 3:12 PM  

Jimmy G. wins today, but next week Rodgers is back in the Bay (Wilson/ Carroll don't do well in the cold) and will play a Super Bowl game.
In the other game, Titans make it interesting but Baltimore wins in the end.

Blogger Lazarus January 11, 2020 3:17 PM  

I don't see any upsets this round, but I would like to be pleasantly surprised

Blogger Ska_Boss January 11, 2020 3:19 PM  

My picks are already out. At this point all I want is SF to lose.

Blogger Jill in StL January 11, 2020 3:56 PM  

Good luck to the Vikings today and I hope you're correct about Seattle, because I'm not thrilled with the match-up for my Packers, but we shall see.

Blogger Shane Bradman January 11, 2020 4:39 PM  

Vikings aren't winning but if they do I'll be happier than if Seattle wins against a slightly mediocre Packers.

Blogger Talios Hammerfist January 11, 2020 4:39 PM  

Go Titans and go Vikings!

Blogger Jon D. January 11, 2020 4:48 PM  

Jimmy's throwin' all over y'all.

Bang bang Niner Gang!

Blogger KPKinSunnyPhiladelphia January 11, 2020 4:48 PM  

The entire offensive line of the Vikings is white. Now I really want them to win.

Blogger Logos Bear aka vessel January 11, 2020 4:53 PM  

Keep counting the Hawks out... Seattle thrives as the underdog and are 10-1 in one td diff games. Just have to go 1-0. That being said, SKOL.

Blogger Shane Bradman January 11, 2020 5:29 PM  

The last month and a half has been too brutal to the Hawks. Too many injuries on important players. If they win today it's a late Christmas miracle.

Blogger Hank Brown January 11, 2020 5:37 PM  

Started watching when it was 7-7. Now 14-7 San Fagcisco. Vikes look punchless, and suffering the usual stupid playcalling. Looks like the ghost of Denny Green is haunting them.

Blogger Redbeard January 11, 2020 5:57 PM  

I'm hoping for a Packers/Vikings championship game, that would be exciting

Blogger Hank Brown January 11, 2020 6:06 PM  

And when the Vikes DO make a tackle, they get penalized for it.

Blogger MidnightSun January 11, 2020 6:13 PM  

Hope the Vikings win!

Blogger Jon D. January 11, 2020 6:23 PM  

21-7. Who's got it better than us?

Blogger Lazarus January 11, 2020 6:23 PM  

Looking good it's not. (4:50 to go in the third)

Blogger Logos Bear aka vessel January 11, 2020 7:04 PM  

You can say that, yes. But no one is better at next man up than Seattle. And the last few weeks have given them opportunities to get their depth playing time. I think they have a more than fighting chance to disrupt. Oh, and, Russel Wilson...

Blogger Dave January 11, 2020 7:19 PM  

Yah, pretty lackluster performance. The Saints must've taken it out of 'em when they played Sunday and then they had to travel to the left coast. Though usually we talk about left coast teams traveling east.

How shaky is Zimmer's job? At some point it's much easier to replace the coach instead of changing players.

Blogger Iron Spartan January 11, 2020 7:39 PM  

its was a good season

Blogger Manuel January 11, 2020 7:42 PM  


Blogger Billy January 11, 2020 7:53 PM  

SF stopped the run, and cousins had no time to pass. The game was the defensive line shutting down the vikings oline. and Bosa aint no joke.

Blogger Billy January 11, 2020 7:56 PM  

I was thinking the viking would mix in some trick plays in the second half, something to shake things up, and maybe a few lucky turnovers to get the SF defense off their game. But it didnt happen.

Blogger Billy January 11, 2020 8:03 PM  

I know its been said, but truly a first class Offensive line is just as important as a top rated QB. Look at Tannehill in Miami, languished behind that terrible line. Now shining in Tennessee.

Blogger Megamerc January 11, 2020 8:05 PM  

After watching that game, my initial thought is that while San Francisco's defense played well, the offensive play calling for the Vikings was pedestrian and predictable and more to blame for the end result. The Vikings threw away the opportunity to stay in the game. But props to San Francisco for being consistent

Blogger Lazarus January 11, 2020 8:24 PM  

Titans do a stupid thing early. Guy out of bounds first to touch. Indicates a lack of situational awareness, i.e., panic.

Anonymous Anonymous January 11, 2020 8:51 PM  

Due to petty personal rancor, I don't want nothin' nice to ever happen for Baltimore, and now that I no longer live in California, I'm happy to see the 49ers doing well again since I don't have to deal with their heinously smug fans.

Blogger Dave January 11, 2020 9:00 PM  

Could be a case of the Ravens resting players week 17 and the bye last week and their...mojo has disappeared. Will they find it again in time?

Blogger Jack Amok January 11, 2020 9:14 PM  

Tough luck Vox. Looking better for Nate's team tonight. Go Tacks.

(BTW, looking forward to the Air Raid in the SEC. Should be interesting)

Blogger Lazarus January 11, 2020 9:15 PM  

I withdraw my previous statement. I know nothing about football.

Blogger Nate January 11, 2020 9:18 PM  

yeah. the titans sure look upset and scared.

Blogger Unknown January 11, 2020 9:56 PM  

today was the most difficult day ever... wanted the Vikes to win but couldn't actively root for them. Go Pack Go!!!!

Blogger Damelon Brinn January 11, 2020 9:58 PM  

A lot of talking heads won't know what to say on Monday if they can't talk about how awesome MVP Lamar Jackson was. Did you know he's the MVP?

Blogger David Ray Milton January 11, 2020 10:40 PM  

I remember saying something in November to the like of “Once a defensive coordinator figures out Lamar Jackson...”

Well done Titans.

Blogger Jack Amok January 11, 2020 10:41 PM  

Ravens are the only team in the league with regular uniforms that look uglier than the Color Rush jerseys.

Blogger Lazarus January 11, 2020 10:45 PM  

Harbaugh doesn't look like a guy that has a plan B

Blogger RJ January 11, 2020 10:48 PM  

Lamar Jackson was a Human Turnover in his last 1.5 years in college. Don't know why NFL coaches were so hesitant to make him pass the ball. The Titans are a real threat to win it all. Nasty D and a good run game. Looking forward to the AFC Championship game.

Blogger Nate January 11, 2020 10:54 PM  

titan. up.

Blogger Rahul S January 11, 2020 10:55 PM  

Is Lamar's low wonderlic score catching up to him today?

Blogger Lazarus January 11, 2020 11:09 PM  

When there is a commercial break in the football, I get to see Hockey Night in Canada in Punjabi. Way better than in English.

I was hoping the Titans (Oilers) would bring it to the Ravens. I just hope they burn that clock with "Oh Henry" and hold on.

Blogger Jack Amok January 11, 2020 11:14 PM  

I hate the new false-start/neutral zone rules. A rugby ref would start handing out yellow cards for guys pointing like that.

Blogger The Masked Menace January 11, 2020 11:15 PM  

Nobody gave them Titans a chance did they!? Oh... there's just know way they could possibly beat the league MVP. Hell, I'm surprised they even bothered to play the game.

Titan up and hold on!

Blogger The Masked Menace January 11, 2020 11:16 PM  

That damn clock is moving so slow.

Blogger Sterling Pilgrim January 11, 2020 11:31 PM  

Well you got the upset part correct

Blogger Shane Bradman January 11, 2020 11:32 PM  

The Titans crushed. The Seahawks are probably losing tomorrow so I'll be cheering on Tennessee to the superbowl. They crushed the Patriots and now the Ravens. True underdog team.

Blogger Sterling Pilgrim January 11, 2020 11:32 PM  

Archie Bell and the Drells are the real heroes! Tighten up now!

Blogger The Masked Menace January 11, 2020 11:35 PM  

btw Vox, Paul Brown was the greatest. And he did it dressed with style.

Blogger The Masked Menace January 11, 2020 11:44 PM  

Luv Ya Blue.

Blogger Dave January 12, 2020 12:12 AM  

Titans at Chiefs in the AFC Championship, I'd watch it. Who the hell wants to see the Texans and Titans play again for the 3rd time in a month?

Blogger The Masked Menace January 12, 2020 12:27 AM  

Titans... destroyers of dreams.

First they ended the greatest football dynasty in NFL history shattering the legacy of one Thomas Edward Patrick Brady,Jr. with a possible final career pass interception "pick-6". Then they lay down an earth-shaking upset of the mighty NFL MVP led 14-2 Superbowl bound favorite Baltimore Ravens.

Oh, the humanity... when and where will it end?

Blogger nswhorse January 12, 2020 2:06 AM  

As a Steelers fan, I'm very happy today. Definitely on the Titans bandwagon now.

Anonymous Anonymous January 12, 2020 4:03 AM  

ESPN and the NFL have the bad sads tonight cuz the best quarterbackerizer evah (black edition) fell at the first hurdle. It must be Trump's fault.

Blogger Leatherwing January 12, 2020 10:56 AM  

I like the fact that Tannehill got a rushing TD, and Henry got a passing TD. It was almost like they were rubbing it Jackson's face.
