2015 NFL Playoffs (Wildcard) are finally here!

Today begins the NFL Playoffs. Even though this is the Wildcard Weekend, I still can’t wait to see how the games shake out. After all, this website is devoted to NFL football, so I only have a few precious weeks left to enjoy games.

First up is the Chiefs-Texans game. How did Houston get into the Playoffs? I remember watching HBO’s “Hard KNocks” this summer and thinking, “no way can this team get into the playoffs.  Sure they have JJ Watt and Arian Foster, but it was only a matter of time before Foster got hurt (Alfred Blue is no Arian Foster). Watt can’t carry the team by himself. They surprised me though and made it in. Now they have to go against the hottest team in the NFL, the Kansas City Chiefs, with Jeremy Maclin and Alex Smith. Good luck there!

The Steelers vs Bengals game is the one I am most excited to watch. No Andy Dalton? Maybe AJ McCarron looks to get Cincy off the schneid. Hopefully the cameras will pan to AJ’s smoking hot wife. Sorry, lost my train of thought. Can the Bengals beat the Steelers? Judging by Big Ben’s comments this week about Martavis Bryant, I doubt it. With the recent PSA from a local Cincinnati radio station claiming that “This is a severe Big Ben Roethlisberger update from 700WLW. The tri-state is currently under a severe Big Ben warning from now through early Sunday morning”,  I would think that the Bengals need to be more worried than the local women of the area. Big Ben will be throwing to Antonio Brown, Martavis Bryant and Marcus Wheaton, especially with DeAngelo Williams out. Even though McCarron has AJ Green and Tyler Eifert, he has never played in the NFL Playoffs. The Bengals have also lost 7 straight Post-Season games. Edge to the Steelers, in my opinion.

The Seahawks play the Vikings in Minneso-cold. Is Beastmode playing? What about Linval Joseph? Not sure but this game looks to have the excitement coming from Russell Wilson vs. Adrian Petersen. I think the edge will go to Russell Wilson, who reminds Minnesotans of Fran Tarkenton, but with a much better Super Bowl record (the last loss for Tarkenton was to the Raiders in Super Bowl XI). Tarkenton is in the Hall of Fame but I bet he would love to see the Minnesota Vikings as World Champs. May not happen the way Seattle has been playing

rodgers vs cousins copyLast but not least, the Packers play the Redskins…in Washington! Who would have thought that Washington, would be hosting Aaron Rodgers and the Pack? Remember RG3? Neither do we. Kirk Cousins is the man in DC now.  You like that?! You like that?!  DeSean Jackson and Kirk Cousins lead the way for the Skins against a struggling Green Bay team.  The reason I say struggling is due to their injury situation.  Most teams are banged up right now but the Packers have been hit pretty hard, especially on the O-Line.  Aaron Rodgers will try to carry the offense but with Kirk Cousins and the West Coast offense he is running this could be a shootout. Does Rodgers still have enough bullets to pull it out even with 18 players on their injured list?  Normally I might say yes but Cousins and the Skins are tearing it up right now. I see the Redskins and DeSean Jackson’s “Chip” on his shoulder winning this one at home. See what I did their with the Chip Kelly reference.

Let the games begin!

Who should be NFL Offensive Rookie of the year?

When it comes to recent rookies in the NFL, there are not a lot of players who stand out like Odell Beckham Jr. did last year.  Labeled the only rookie to “run the entire route tree” by Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman, he only played in 12 games!  He fended off Mike Evans, from the Buccaneers, and some Guard named Zack Martin, from the Cowboys, in the 2014 NFL Offensive Rookie of the year voting.  It was not even close. Beckham got 42 votes, Zack Martin got 7, Mike Evans 1.  Personally, I am not sure why a guard was even in the running, but as a former linemen in the NFL I am proud that he represented all fat guys so well.

Back to rookies.  There is a player, named Thomas Rawls, that is making some waves.  He has been filling in for “Beast Mode” most of the year and he is balling.

He has only started 5 games so far this year and he is already in the top ten of rushing.  What’s more impressive is this:  he is the first player in NFL history with more than 250 yards, a rushing touchdown and a receiving touchdown in the same game.  History!  Can you say #FIRE!  I love watching Marshawn running the pill so at worst, the Seahawks have a stable in the barn they can count on.  Not sure if he will end up as rookie of the year, considering the other young players that are emerging (Amari Cooper, Jameis Winston, Todd Gurley, etc) but he just outplayed Adrian Petersen so you never know.
