Playoffs?? Playoffs!!

Well that was a couple of decent games that went according to the scrip, albeit it was a little tougher for Tom Terrific of San Mateo to hold up his end of the deal. Carolina played very well until Cam Newton inexplicably misaed on 3 passes to kill a drive and threw a pick 6 on the next one to seal that one.

But Serra boy Tom Brady shredded a fairly pliant Baltimore defense in the 4th quarter after its own defense spotted Carlina 2 separate 14 point leads. Flacco looked golden at times, yet threw into double coverage late to seal that game. A fairly stupid throw to make on 2nd and 5 when you are driving for the winning score late.

Ahhh welll. It sucks to be looking in at this from the outside, but then again, there’s a tiny bit of relief that we don’t have to agonize over the outcome that may or may not be deemed acceptable.

If shit goes according to plan, we’ll have Green Bay beat Dallas, and Denver beat Indy. Then again, who knows what kind of deat Blandino cut with Jerry Jones?

    Rumor has it Ryan will be the Bills HC and he wants Roman for OC.
    For a team with no viable QB on the roster and no first round pick it makes some sense to hire a RG coordinator. Looks like Ryan will rely on D, ST and RG. Unless it turns out Harbaugh was repressing Roman’s creative abilities all along.

  2. What is Rex’s aversion to competent quarterbacking? He’s leaving Geno Smith and the Puppy Killer in NY and shuffling off to Buffalo to greet E.J. Manuel, some schmuck FA signee (possibly reunite with Sanchize) and a 4th rd draft choice from Bumfuck Egypt U.

    In addition to that creepy foot fetish of his, Ryan must be a closet masochist.
    He loves enduring the pain of watching his quarterbacks play.

  3. Of course the #1 trending topic on Twitter is “New York Bozo.”
    Rodgers used that term to audible earlier in the first half. That has endless possibilities.
    Beats the hell outta Omaha.

  4. unca_chuck says:

    Wow, looks like the bus trip paid off for Dallas. If the whistle hadn’t t blown, that was a legal block. Of course the morons announcing the game don’t touch on that fact.

  5. Berger says:

    Rex and Roman sound like a perfect match.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    Like Davante out of Fresno. One of many they have missed on.

  7. Just when I thought the tackling couldn’t get any worse in the NFL, the Cowboys lower the bar once again.

  8. snarkk says:

    Why does GB not go for 2 to tie it up at 21 after that TD? I don’t get that at all.
    Adams was barely open on that TD, Rogers put it right there, perfect pass. Kap can’t make that throw through a window pane…

  9. unca_chuck says:

    You take the easy points up to the 4th quarter. I guess. I might have gone for it there tho. Course they miss after their next score.

  10. snarkk says:

    Rodgers to Rodgers for the Pack TD — Cal to Cal connection…

  11. unca_chuck says:

    Time to hit room. There you go. Both these guys are hiding the ball too long.

  12. unca_chuck says:

    Romo. Big play. 4th and 2 for the fame. Wow.

  13. unca_chuck says:

    The refs give th, the refs take the away.

  14. snarkk says:

    When you see games like this, you wonder how the Niners, with a very good D, would have done with even a semblance of a passing game…

  15. snarkk says:

    Rex Ryan coupled with Roman as OC?
    Bills will have a stone age offense…

  16. snarkk says:

    Time for Chris Christie to head back to New Joisey, and Jerruh back to another offseason…

  17. Berger says:

    I’m guessing Garrett, who is a FA coach, Callahan, who is an OC with limited control of his offense, or Linehan, who is a master of the passing game will be available for our available OC position.

    • I beg to differ. Dallas isn’t going to break up a good thing. Especially now that they finally got one going. Even Jerry Jones isn’t that big of a mook.

      My best guess now is that they’ll stay in-house (their first plan all along) and promote either Tomsula or Fangio to HC and Mike Solari to OC. And I, like the rest of the fan base, will be completely underwhelmed.

  18. Nipper says:

    Question: Is Dennis vertical or horizontal on the sawdust floor?

  19. Alleykat says:

    Have we traded for Peyton yet?
    Another playoff, another loss!!

  20. Berger says:

    Peyton might just retire and concentrate on selling pizzas!

  21. Colts beat the Broncos today. Story of my life. I had the wrong fucking horse.

  22. Flavor says:

    Peyton’s inability to succeed in the playoffs seems to be rubbing off on his teammates. The Broncos were bad from the play calling to the QB to all the dropped balls.
    And I loved every minute of it.

  23. unca_chuck says:

    I love the papa johns commercial where Manning says, “Doesn’t Joe just show up during the playoffs?”

    Truer words were never spoken, Peyton.

    • Flavor says:

      It doesn’t seem like he gets the line. I’m going to believe he doesn’t get it. And that makes it all the more hilarious….

  24. unca_chuck says:

    Romo and Manning bite the dust. I’d say sorry, Dennis, but I ain’t.

    • Flavor says:

      Denny is all about those nifty reg season td’s.

      • Denny’s all about winning Super Bowls.
        FACT: We didn’t win a SB these last 3 yrs with Alex and/or Kap at QB. We’ll never know had it been different if we’d had signed Peyton Manning.

      • Flavor says:

        convenient argument. All we do know is that Peyton sucks dick in the playoffs and you lap that shit up. Romo, too..
        Dude, is there a QB out there that you beat off to regularly that wins all these Super Bowls you covet? And if you say Brady, he better fucking win this year, right?

  25. unca_chuck says:

    Joe was a lousy fantasy football player as well.

  26. Alleykat says:

    Yeah you can spank teams all year racking up TD’s passes,40-50 pt games, But as usual the Playoffs separate the real pretenders in the end.
    Which is always the case with Peyton and his losing track record come showtime..

  27. Funny how Chuck and Flav are deflecting the pertinent comparison and are trying to make this a Manning vs Joe thing. There is no comparison. We all know that. That’s not the question.

    “We’re better off with Alex Smith.”

    Chuck should have been shot in the face the first time he uttered that statement.

  28. Flavor says:
    • NJ49er says:

      5-Head and the 1-and-done couch pose 😀

      Elway oughta be tying one on right about now I’d imagine?

  29. NJ49er says:

    We’ll know soon enough, whether our coveted next HC is still playing, if an announcement isn’t made in the next couple of days.
    Could it be Quinn or McDaniels?

    As Arte Johnson used to say….’Very Interesting’…..

  30. NJ49er says:

    How long might it take for Jerruh to lobby the Competition Committee for a change to the pass reception rule after the season?
    Gotta admit, I thought that was the most dramatic call of the weekend.
    Followed by the Josh Cribbs punt reception being over-turned in Denver.

    Crazy Playoff phase thus far, for Dino and the NFL Officiating entity.

    • Flavor says:

      I hate Dallas but it’s a travesty that Dez makes a catch like that and it turns out not to be a catch. I get that it’s a rule but that’s a rule that needs to get changed, as you’re suggesting…

      • Flavor says:

        I mean, come on, the dude caught that ball. And considering the fact that it was 4th down, the weight of the playoffs, and he does THAT? I think it was one of the top 10 best catches of all time if you consider everything involved.
        And yet, oops, that wasn’t a catch….

      • NJ49er says:

        Agree Flavor –
        Game changer like none I’ve ever seen before.
        I thought he made a ‘football move’ by laying out for the goal line as well.
        Thought for sure it was a catch and fumble.

      • rtfirefly says:

        When I saw the Megatron catch in 2010 that gave it its name – the Calvin Johnson Rule, I thought it was the stupidest rule ever made. For a brief time today, I changed my mind.

        Karma’s a bitch! Ain’t it Jer and NJ Bozo?

      • rtfirefly says:

        NJ Bozo – the fat guy eating all the munchies in Jerruh’s suite, not you NJ.

      • NJ49er says:

        GB and Indy got some major help from the Officials today.
        At least they didn’t pick up any flags and walk away this weekend.

        But yeh, Dez made an unbelievable catch that ended up not being allowed by a stupidly written rule.
        I can see that rule being applied to a Receiver going out of bounds but, to land in the field of play as he did, just doesn’t seem fair.

      • NJ49er says:

        Yeh RT, I thought they were going for ‘NJ Mojo’ and opted for ‘Bozo’, so as not to be TOO obvious.
        Christie’s orange sweater should have U-Haul stenciled on it, since it’s obviously available for rent.

      • NJ49er says:

        Take that ‘lucky’ orange sweater to Dallas and load it up for the off-season 😀

  31. NJ49er says:

    Maybe the biggest surprise of the day was, Indy’s Defense and, the lack of pressure Denver was able to generate?
    Didn’t see that one coming by a long stretch.
    John Fox may be available for interviews tomorrow as well?

  32. Flavor says:

    And why should you have to make a “football move?” Just catch the ball. Everyone knows what a catch is. If you lose it after you catch it, it’s a fumble. End of story.

    • NJ49er says:

      That’s the fine line apparently Flavor, they deemed it separate actions.
      I too said catch, football move (going for the goal line), fumble, recovered by Dez.

      • NJ49er says:

        All in all, gutsy call by Garrett.
        For all intents and purposes, it worked.
        They can 2nd guess it all off-season now, in hindsight.
        All they needed was what? 2yds?

      • Berger says:

        If the receiver is going to the ground he must maintain control. Dez did not make a football move while maintaining his balance. He was going to the ground, it’s a very easily interpreted rule.

      • NJ49er says:

        Yes Berger, as written, the rule was properly enforced today.
        What we’re saying is that the rule is whacked.
        Especially when the guy took 2+ steps forward and lost the ball as a result of contacting the ground.
        Looked to me like he has control until the ground caused the fumble.
        No question it was enforced properly but, he clearly had possession until his arm hit.

        What I’m suggesting is, he made a football move by lunging for the goal line.

      • Berger says:

        I’m OK with the current rule and I’m OK with your pined for version. All I care is that the officiating is fair for both teams.

  33. rtfirefly says:

    I don’t want Fox. He’s a great coach and deserves better than Jed publicly pissing on him after his next heart attack, inevitable after going from Bowlen/Elway to Jed/Paraag/Baalke

    • NJ49er says:

      I have no interest in Fox either RT, just suggesting he might be late to the interview party for anyone else in need.
      Elway sold out in FA to make the run this run this year.

      1-and-done, game over.

      I’ve been thinking Fangio all along but, if he’s not announced this week, I’m guessing our next HC might still be playing on.

      • Berger says:

        I was thinking the same thing. Expect an announcement Monday or Tuesday or the coach is still in the play-offs.

      • rtfirefly says:

        The Broncs have a very good D. Elway/Fox turned that team from perennial losers to perennial contenders again. That won’t change w/o Fox, certainly not in the AFC West.

  34. Berger says:

    I’m more interested in knowing who the OC is going to be more than who the HC will be.

    • NJ49er says:

      That comes with the HC Berger.
      If they take Fangio, there’s been reports that Kyle Shanahan would likely be his choice.
      If they go with someone else at HC, it’s anyone’s guess at this point?

  35. NJ49er says:

    Another play in that GB game that isn’t getting much attention is, the Julius Peppers-caused fumble on DeMurray.

    Murray would likely have taken it to the house.
    Another potential game-changer that wasn’t.

    • Berger says:

      The blocking was good. Zach Martin even got a good kick out on Peppers, who made the play. If Murray was holding the ball high and tight like he is taught to do, Peppers gets only a hand on him at most and Murray is still running.

  36. snarkk says:

    I’ve seen that Dez Bryant catch highlights rerun again and again.
    He took three steps with the ball cradled in this hands before he hit the groun. That’s a catch.
    I don’t see how it could NOT be a catch. The “Boys were robbed…

    • NJ49er says:

      Yeh Snarkk, it’s just the way the rule is constructed.
      They got the call right.
      It just didn’t hold up to the challenge.

      I agree with you. He had control until he hit the ground. Which should have invoked the ‘football move’ aspect of ground can’t cause a fumble, like any other play following contact.

      • NJ49er says:

        Tough break but, who cares about Jerruh? Screw him.

        Now he has to figure out what to do about his Salary Cap situation.
        Good luck with that.

        He might have to restructure Romo, (again), just to find some coin to pay the other guys.
