Wow!  You guys have all chosen different combinations. (Not bad, for an 8-pony race.)

 

Classy stuff, gents...

 

 

I don't know:  I'm leaning all homerville;

 

but then I'll have to take into account "matchups,"

and go into my algorithmic fantasyland

Oh, come on.  We need the MG breakdown of these games.  Can't stop now.

I think you pretty much have 1st place wrapped up in the pick'em.  Over the past 8 weeks, I have picked my games on the site on Tuesday and haven't looked back.  I go with my gut only, set it and forget it.  That being said, I can't remember if I picked BUF/JAX and I won't go back to check (the other 3 games I'm sure of).  Whatever is in Yahoo is official for me.  And... if I know buck, he would never base his picks on someone else's picks.  buck is too proud for that sh*t.   Nobody else can catch you.

I hate to say Chiefs but Arrowhead is a tough place to play.  A tough place that also isn't experiencing the ultimate Jack Frost Arctic Attack that's happening on the East coast.

 

Give me Chiefs, Rams, Panthers, and Jags.

Alright.  Though if anything, I'm pretty much going to stick with the home team all throughout.  Other than perhaps the Falcons pulling away with an upset, none of the home teams actually feel like dominant super teams in the Wild Card round that would very likely win on the road.  But here's the rub:

 

Tennessee Titans vs. Kansas City Chiefs:  Of all the weekly picks I could make, this one appears to be the most clear to me.  I honestly think that the Kansas City Chiefs are going to win this game.  Yes, teams like the Tennessee Titans have won the Super Bowl before.  Heck, they exceeded all expectations and managed to get there in the past.  Looking at you, 2001 New England Patriots.  The problem, however, comes from the coaching staff, and Mark Mularkey is so uninspiring and pedestrian that the only reason he still has a head coaching job and probably still have one after their season is over is because they did their job in the season finale and barely escaped the horrors of an NFL collapse.  That, and he is by default a vast improvement over Ken Wisenhunt, whose claim to fame was riding the curtails of Kurt Warner on their way to an Arizona Cardinals Super Bowl berth.  At least Murlarkey coached a pair of 9-win seasons for the Titans, just like Ben O'Brien before this year.

 

Atlanta Falcons vs. LA Rams:  This is probably the hardest game to pick this weekend since both teams are actually really, really good.  And yes, the Falcons have had their struggles, but mostly against other playoff teams (Patriots, Bills, Vikings, and regular season splits against Saints and Panthers).  The Rams are young and inexperienced in the postseason berth, in spite a likely League MVP year for Todd Gurley provided Tom Brady doesn't come adding a third trophy to his list (and presumably killing any hope of the Patriots winning the Super Bowl, but I digress--seriously media experts, if you don't want to see the Patriots complete their dynasty with a 6th Lombardi trophy, jinx the team with a League MVP for Brady).  The Falcons, meanwhile, are the defending NFC Champions, and have a much clearer path to the postseason than the Rams do (all because the Saints and Panthers decided to both eat a bag of excrement last week, thus ensuring the 3-Seed that they wanted to avoid at all cost).  The Falcons probably had one of the toughest schedules of any team in the NFL, as they had to duel it out against more playoff teams and contenders than any other team, and other than most of the teams that ultimately made it, had managed to defeat every single one of them.  I think the tough call is based more on who I think is the stronger team, and ultimately, I think the Rams have the better overall team than the Falcons do.

 

Buffalo Bills vs. Jacksonville Jaguars:  Congratulations, Buffalo Bills for ending your miserable 17-year postseason drought.  Same to you, for ending your 10-year drought, Jacksonville Jaguars (who haven't even won the division crown in 17 years, either).  Anyways, the only reason the Bills might end up pulling away with a major upset here is because Blake Bortles is still the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback, and is by far the biggest detriment to his own team.  Both teams have lethal defenses, with the Jaguars probably having the edge here in the pass rush.  Even though the Bills' offense is built similarly to the Tennessee Titans, who surprisingly match up well against the Jaguars, the Bills have to make do without 30% of their starting offense.  In other words, no Shady McCoy this week.  Even if he does come in, he won't be 100% due to a sprained ankle last week.  Honestly, I probably want the Bills to win it all this year simply because it would make for an incredible story.  But I know for a fact that outside of the Titans, the Bills are the least impressive-looking playoff team by far.  At least you had to gruel out your season until the bitter end where you needed a miracle in order to get in.  Still, the safe pick would have to be Jacksonville over Buffalo, here.  Then again, if the Jaguars and Chiefs both win their games, then perhaps there'd be a chance of New England getting eliminated right before the Super Bowl.  Because even if the Bills win here, they would still get obliterated by the New England Patriots, just like what happened the last couple of times the two teams played.

 

Carolina Panthers vs. New Orleans Saints:  The Saints have swept the Panthers during the regular season.  And while there has been a precedent in the past of road playoff teams that got swept by their division rivals getting back at 'em in the playoffs (looking at you, catalysts for 18-1), overall, the Panthers don't seem like the most reliable picks.  The upside is that if the Panthers do get past the Saints, the road back to the Super Bowl suddenly becomes clear to them.  The only teams they might need to worry about then are the Rams and Falcons.  They can take on a Wentzless Eagles squad even in freezing cold Philadelphia, and they're one of the few teams not at all afraid of Minnesota's defense.  However, the same can be said for the Saints, with the only difference being the concern of having to get past the Vikings.  Overall, the safe pick would be the Saints here.

Falcons are tired of 25-point margins, I tell you ... 5a51172a5abf2_Tecmo2018_rev0larATLsim.thumb.png.f35dae199dbaf156d420218c8e23118f.png

MysteryRom.

 

^^^This game simulation is absolutely perfect except for one thing......................EVERYTHING.  Add a "2" in front of Gurley's NO. & YDS. totals and that would be a hell of a lot more accurate........Infact 26 for 250 is something that a 2 week rested fresh Todd Gurley is more than likely going to put up.  I don't see Atlanta havin' any answer for him.  It's gonna be a clinic.

Add to that, Falcons are tired of OT:  5a5125c27ce70_SBlueman-TSB2017-v1.09larATLlegitOT.thumb.png.2023ee628e9eed61c588816d3271f8ba.png

ANOTHER MysteryRom.

 

LAR got the ball first (in OT).  3-and-out.  TwentySIXTEEN mvp marched his team down the field, and threw the game-winning score

A bit disappointed about how the game went, though i was really pissed about Cyprien not getting flagged for his helmet to helmet hit on Kelce while Kelce was going down.

 

 

Cyprien is a piece of crap...  As a Jags fan, I was glad we got rid of him.  Dirty player and not very good either.

      Congratulations, Philadelphia Eagles for ending your 57-year championship drought and taking Super Bowl LII.
       
      Might as well start this new thread for a new season, since Maynard seems to have vanished off the face of the earth at around the time of the Super Bowl.  Hope he's doing well.
       
      So discuss the current NFL season here.
