Fearless Divisional Round Prediction Thread

  • OK, why not eh?

    I'll go AFC first.

    Much as I hate the Stealers and would like to beat them in the Superb Owl, I think Peyton's Broncos will prove too much for them, especially with Rapistburger's bum shoulder. There's reason to suspect Brown's concussion is faked. But even if it is, Rapistburger's arm could become a big factor.

    Shittsburgh Stealers 13
    Dumbver Donkeys 31

    I think the Chiefs are the AFC's most complete team. No big stars, but a lot of journeymen who just get it done and win. The Cheatriots have been inconsistent this year and while my second favorite Owl matchup would be beating them, I think the Chefs will take this. I think an all AFC west Championship game would rock. I'm less confident about the Chefs, because if the Cheatriots, Brady and Gronk get it going, and we factor in that they will cheat in some way, and that the NFL might advise refs to call their way if at all possible, could easily prove me wrong, but for my pick, going with the Chefs.

    Kansas Pity Chefs 24
    New Funkland Cheatriots 20

    Now for the real conference....

    Green Bay and Arizona would seem to be obvious. AZ beat them soundly, but Rogers has got some of his groove back and they sure laid it on in Washington, but still that was in Washington against the Deadskins. Not gonna have it so easy in Glendale. I think Plamers finger could be a factor, but the Tards have been consistently good all season, and with the sound beatdown they gave the Slackers last time, I don't see GB coming out ahead in this one, but it should be a better game than last time. Still I got AZ taking them down in a second matchup.

    Green Day Slackers 16
    Arizonedout Tards 27

    Now for the real game....

    I think the cold was a huge factor yesterday. Our guys are not used to it, and Russel didn't even show up till the 4th quarter. Thank god he finally did. While I would have expected a bit more of our team, it's a win and I am overjoyed to have any win in a playoff game. While Carolina beat us earlier in the season, they beat the Seahawks of the first half of the season. IDK why but I have a feeling we are gonna open a can of whoopass on the kitty cats. I don't think it will be a close game, but I think it will be a high scorer compared to last week's I think Russell gets his groove back, Beastmode plays and shit stomps Carolina. I also think we finally get a pick six in this game, and would not be surprised to see Lockett take one to the hous. I wouldn't be surprised if it starts in shootout fashion, but I think the second half will be all Seahawks.

    Seattle (Super) Seahawks 38
    Carolina Pussy Cats 24

    Would be cool to have an all West Championship round and I think it's entirely possible.

    Well that was fun, wasting 10 minutes on this post, can't wait for Sunday!

  • I'm with you on all the games except the Donkos.

    But I need to wait to see if Rapelessburger and Brown are halfway healthy enough to play. I hate the Broncos, and think the Steelers D will send Manning off to the glue farm in a body bag.

    He's done, can't throw a ball more than 15 yard and is as immobile as a statue in central park...........so I have no idea if the Steelers are even 80% healthy how anyone thinks the Broncos can score if their run game's shut down, which it has been for weeks.
    If there is no Seahawk football in heaven, then we will never die.

  • I think KC comes to realize that they are in the playoffs and they lay an egg. They are down to one receiving threat and Alex Smith is not good. The Pats win by 10.

    Speaking of Alex Smith... Alex Smith makes games so fun to watch... The Stealer/Donko will feature two QBs that CAN'T throw the ball more than 5 yards. I can't wait to watch TWO teams going at each other with what equates to Alex Smith at QB. I don't care which team wins, but I think the Donko defense wins this game 13-10.

    Packers/Cards? Who cares? I hope they both lose. I would rather have the Seahawks play Arizona because it is more of a rivalry.

    Seahawks win like the last two times these teams have met in the playoffs. 30+ to teens.

    Latest report has him as probable BUT Antonio Brown is doubtful.. and to me thats as big of a loss as Ben.

    I think if Ben and Antonio play.. Pittsburgh wins. If one or both miss, Denver moves on.

    Other game I like New England, even though Kansas City has been on a roll.

    NFC I think the Cardinals roll again and I of course like Seattle over Carolina.

  • I think KC's defense will give the Pats a ton of problems but their offense wont be able to muster enough to take them down at home.

  • Interesting everyone picks the Seahawks over the Panthers - what is the reasoning? Panthers coming off a bye, early start time (which apparently is a big factor for Seattle according to y'all), Seahawks just finished a physical game in freezing temps - I would figure the Panthers would out-muscle the Seahawks in an ugly game at home...

    What gives? Is it homerism (my fallback for every Cardinals pick)?

    I don't like beer at 10am...what can I say?

    You don't "figure" it will be an ugly game with the Prancers winning...you HOPE that is the case because you don't want to see the Seahawks again.

    We'll be coming for you next week.

    You are assuming that we win, I can't make such an assumption. This is our first playoff game since Kurt Warner, ignoring last years limping, three legged, half blind dog of a team we put on the field.

    Yes, I am assuming the cards beat the pack...and so should you. Your cards are the better team. Have fun.. What is the worst thing that can happen? Being wrong? That is what makes this so fun...the worst thing that can happen is that you were wrong and you have to take a little ribbing...big deal. Talk trash. Grow a pair. Have fun. Being wrong isn't going to hurt you.

    I enjoy the back and forth banter. The guys that come back after being wrong EARN respect by doing so and usually fall into some pretty good football conversations throughout the rest of the season. It's these "drive by" posters that are here and gone after their loss that take away all the fun. They don't give us a chance to gloat.

    It sure is nice to have a team that continually backs up my smack. Good time to be a Seahawk fan.

    Because I truly think we're the better team. Just like I think the two best teams in the NFC both reside in the NFC West.

    Yeah, it's 50% homer, but the other 50% is we've beat Carolina A LOT over the past 3-4 years, so this is not a bad matchup game for the Hawks............especially on the defensive side of the ball.

  • Arizona will handle Green Bay (again).

    Seattle vs. Carolina is an even money game in my mind. I'll go homer and say Seattle gets another lucky bounce (or kick).

    I can't see KC overcoming the Pats at home. So, Pats.

    Pittsburgh vs. Denver is going to be monumentally ugly, but I think Denver's defense is going to play out of its mind.

  • I can't see Pittsburgh even standing any chance with nearly all it's important offensive players not playing. The Broncos aren't in great shape either but they're not THAT bad. Easy win for the Broncos.

    Pats vs KC will probably be a great game. I still have a feeling that Alex Smith will choke. He wasn't even that good in a 30-0 shutout win. I can't really see them win a shootout against the Pats.

    AFCCG: Patriots @ Broncos

    Packers vs Cards could actually be a close game. We haven't seen AZ play since they got blown out by us in week 17. Packers on the other hand come of a very convincing win against a team that was deemed stronger than them. I'm going on a whim here and take momentum over consistency, especially with concerns on Palmer's hand.

    Seahawks vs Panthers will most likely turn out to be the best game of the divisional round. These are the two teams everyone is talking about and whoever wins this one will probably go on to win it all. The thing I'm relying on in this game is that we are playing better now than in our reg season game against the Panths, while the Panthers play the same or even regressed slightly. I also think Russ is way more clutch than Cam, especially in the play-offs. Seattle win in a very hard fought game.

  • Fearless prediction: If Green Bay has all five of it's starting offensive linemen (were missing 4 of 5 at points last time) Arizona will not have more than two sacks in the game. Game will come down to the last play: Green Bay 23 AZ 20. GB has the momentum.

    Seattle vs. Carolina: My heart says Seattle. But I don't think they can score on Carolina's defense. 17-9 Panthers.

    Patriots over Chiefs.

    Pittsburgh vs. Denver: Denver.... I don't see a guy with torn ligaments in his throwing shoulder getting it done....

  • I'll take a stab at it:


    KC @ NE

    Let's see, Tom Brady vs. Alex Smith. Hmmmmmm, uh pretty easy one there.
    I do believe the Chefs D will keep it close and that Smith will only turn it over one time But with Maclin hobbled or out, K.C. has but one offensive weapon, Travis Kelce and we all know how good Bellicheat is at taking away a weapon.
    Cheatriots by 8.



    GB @ AZ

    This game will be much closer than the last time these teams played especially since it appears Bakhtiari will play LT for the Cheeseheads. Erin gets sacked half as often with him in vs. when he isn't. Problem is, Rodgers has no one open a good portion of the time and that may even be more of a problem with Devante Adams out.
    Cards by 10



    Pissburgh @ Denver

    Tough one to call. Likely Antonio Brown will be out for the Stealers but I'm not sure that makes a huge difference as we saw when Richard Sherman shut him down in Seattle. The rapist will just throw to the other receivers. And as much as I can't stand the rapist, dude's beyond physically tough and I have no doubt he'll play. On the other side of the coin, Pey Pey goes for the Donkeys and we know how mediocre he is in the playoffs. Couple that with cold weather and his lack of arm strength and 3 picks wouldn't surprise me one iota. If I'm Denver, I try like hell to run the ball effectively. To make matters worse Brock Ostrich has not practiced the last 2 days and may not be able to play so if the forehead goes down it's good night Irene.
    Denver D keeps it close, but their O is ineffective.
    Stealers by 7



    Seattle @ Carolina

    Offenses for both teams will at times be effective and at times struggle. Carolina scores a late TD to tie the game but Russell pulls magic out of his hat and drives the Hawks into FG range in like 30 seconds and Hausch is money from 45 to win it.

  • I see Green Bay beating the Cards. Maybe just short memory since they were pretty much left for dead in my mind entering the playoffs. Just something in the back of my mind.

    Seahawks over Panthers because I am a homer. I think the Panthers feel this is their time and will come out smoking. They just got a bad draw with the Seahawks and it most likely will come down to the last play as most of the games have been. Maybe the win in Seattle puts them over the hump? Still going homer because I see a Packers rematch on the horizon. Playing in Lambeau field. Most likely it is Panthers vs Cards for the NFCCG but this is the playoffs. Anything can happen.

    Patriots win even though the Chiefs are pretty good. This game could flip but I am going with the tried and true over the changed man story.

    Denver beats the Steelers. I don't see Big Ben throwing for 380 against the Broncos this game. But who knows with Big Ben. Prior to the injuries to D Williams and AB, this would have been a Steelers win hands down. Now I think Manning does just enough to help win this game.
