And this isn't a knock on Lamar. Every NFL organization should be constantly asking themselves how to best put their QB in position to succeed. That the Ravens are one of the few orgs to actually do so isn't Lamar's fault, it's a credit to BAL. He will win the MVP and deserve it

Patriots gonna win it all this year

frogbs, Monday, 30 December 2019 15:17 (ten months ago) link

i certainly wouldn't be shocked, though they definitely haven't looked like even a top 5 team this year. if they do get past KC, it's hard for me to envision how they'd beat Baltimore on the road, unless all their skill position guys just magically level up simultaneously.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Monday, 30 December 2019 15:22 (ten months ago) link

they are like some hellish demon from a horror movie, I will not believe they've been defeated until the clock reads 0:00 and they have less points than their opponent. they still have the 2nd best point differential in the league & a coach who's famous for figuring out how to beat good teams in the playoffs

frogbs, Monday, 30 December 2019 15:32 (ten months ago) link

seriously though you're probably right I can't see them getting past KC or Baltimore. that said they will probably demolish Tennessee this weekend, beating inferior teams in the playoffs by 30 is just what Belichick does

Buffalo/Houston is kind of an interesting game, both of these are teams you'd think would be one-and-done but one of them has to win. Houston has the potential to make this a rout but I think Buffalo is better all around, can see their defense giving Watson a hard time

Seattle @ Philly could also be interesting, believe it or not the Seahawks have a point differential of only +7 this year which is pretty bad for a playoff team (though still better than Houston who sits at -7)

hard to see Minnesota having much of a chance vs the New Orleans juggernaut, Vikings kinda look like the classic "peaked a month too early" playoff team

frogbs, Monday, 30 December 2019 15:41 (ten months ago) link

i'm still traumatized by the philly-seahawks game i went to in the bitter cold + rain to watch the eagles play their worst football of the year but they've obviously figured something out over the last month that hopefully they can use. i'm cautiously optimistic!

Mordy, Monday, 30 December 2019 15:42 (ten months ago) link

Houston's offense just seems to rely so much on Will Fuller but you can't bank on him ever being healthy, that's basically why I picked Buffalo.

I think TN will give the Pats a good game, the Titans have played really well lately and I'm just a little dubious as to whether NE's offense is really capable of blowing out anybody right now.

think you're right about the Vikes, especially if Dalvin Cook is out or limited.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Monday, 30 December 2019 15:45 (ten months ago) link

here's what my book says:

Texans -3
Patriots -4.5
Saints -8
Seahawks -2

think Bills, Pats, and Eagles could all be good bets

frogbs, Monday, 30 December 2019 16:10 (ten months ago) link

i have zero faith in the eagles, but . . . home dogs

mookieproof, Monday, 30 December 2019 17:34 (ten months ago) link

my guesses were Texans -3.5, Pats -6, Saints -7 and Seahawks -1. as much as the Pats offense has looked like shit for most of the year I certainly wouldn't feel comfortable picking Tennessee to cover there.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Monday, 30 December 2019 17:52 (ten months ago) link

i don't think Philly can be favored with all of their injuries, now losing Brandon Brooks, possibly Miles Sanders, not sure if they'll have Ertz back. I know Seattle's D is banged up too but the Eagles are a damn infirmary.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Monday, 30 December 2019 17:55 (ten months ago) link

has there ever been an early saturday wildcard game that did not feature a team from the afc south, the most boring division in pro sports™

mookieproof, Saturday, 4 January 2020 21:21 (ten months ago) link

This Bills defense has completely neutralized Watson

frogbs, Saturday, 4 January 2020 23:15 (ten months ago) link

He's coaching for his job, but BoB seems to be doing even worse than usual tonight

525,600 gecs (voodoo chili), Saturday, 4 January 2020 23:27 (ten months ago) link

anyway my bets for this weekend

Bills/Texans under 43 - had to figure one of these two offenses were gonna come out flat
Pats -4.5 - bet big on this one, I don't see this game being close
Saints -7.5 - think the Vikings are actually kinda underrated coming into the playoffs but the Saints look great on both sides and I can see their defense stifling Minnesota all game

frogbs, Saturday, 4 January 2020 23:46 (ten months ago) link

Pats -4.5 - bet big on this one, I don't see this game being close

my dumb hot take is that tannehill knocks them off and then signs with the pats in the offseason lol

525,600 gecs (voodoo chili), Saturday, 4 January 2020 23:51 (ten months ago) link

I'm excited to see the Bills doing well. Not feeling great about the Pats' prospects. They played like shit last week vs Miami.

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Saturday, 4 January 2020 23:54 (ten months ago) link

true but they've still got the #2 point differential in the league & Pats at home vs. a team with little playoff experience is a situation they pretty much always thrive in. I realize they've not looked good recently but the idea that they'd only be a slight favorite on a neutral field seems like a big overcorrection

frogbs, Sunday, 5 January 2020 00:01 (ten months ago) link

this game is getting good huh

frogbs, Sunday, 5 January 2020 00:06 (ten months ago) link

Bills had a good run, RIP

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Sunday, 5 January 2020 00:11 (ten months ago) link

deshaun watson is finally good enough to overcome his own coach.

was kinda predictable for the bills to fall off after that incredible opening script, but they looked a lot better than their point output for three quarters. conservative decision-making and poor ball security bit them in the ass.

y are they not kicking wtf

johnny crunch, Sunday, 5 January 2020 00:23 (ten months ago) link

I uh don’t know if I agree with going for it here

frogbs, Sunday, 5 January 2020 00:23 (ten months ago) link

yikes ok i guess you cant try for a 59-60 yd attmpt

johnny crunch, Sunday, 5 January 2020 00:24 (ten months ago) link

good call not to kick, they might've given the texans good field position

loss of 16 on 4th and 27 lmao Bills

bills full team crumbled lmao

johnny crunch, Sunday, 5 January 2020 00:26 (ten months ago) link

they should've given the bills a fifth down just for fun

525,600 gecs (voodoo chili), Sunday, 5 January 2020 00:27 (ten months ago) link

yikes ok i guess you cant try for a 59-60 yd attmpt

idk unless you know it's physically impossible for him to make that I think you still have to go for it, the odds of them converting 4th & 27 are like zero

frogbs, Sunday, 5 January 2020 00:27 (ten months ago) link

I think it was impossible to definitively say he was short.

andy reid only has three (out of 21) losing seasons in his career as a head coach. his teams have won at least 10 games a year 14 times and he hasn't won fewer than 10 games since 2014.

pretty good.
