Playoffs Tourney Conference Championship Results
Sorry, I’ve been a bit lax getting the results up from the Conference Championship Round of our NFL Playoffs Tourney, but with two weeks until the Super Bowl, I thought I’d try to s-t-r-e-t-c-h things out a little bit.
Pretty good games last weekend. Oh, Atlanta. Can’t hold a lead. It is difficult to identify exactly who to blame for their collapse against the 49ers. The defense was porous, although they did force a turnover on the goal line. The offense stopped scoring, and the Matt Ryan fumble was a killer. This one defined “team loss”.
Tony Gonzalez said no one should pity him for not making it to the big game. Okay, I won’t, but out of all four teams, all the players and the coaches who were still playing last week, he was the guy I clearly wanted to see play another week on the biggest football stage. A class act, superstar player, and it just amazes me how good he was this season. Hard to believe he could hang them up, and it sure sounds like he will. If he does, it was still a heck of a swan song.
Now for some commentary on the Baltimore Ravens dismantling of the New England Patriots. I did not see that coming, at least by such a lopsided score. Regardless of the Ravens not being at all intimidated by the Patriots aura, the Pats did not play like they normally do. I even continued to expect a comeback pretty late in the ball game, to at least make a game of it, but the hit on Steven Ridley was a tide turner. The high deflection and interception didn’t help either.
Bernard Pollard. Crazy how much impact one defensive player – and not a household name by any stretch – can have on a franchise over the course of many seasons. Bill Belichick has to be seriously sitting thinking, how can I sign this guy? Even if he could get him and just sit him on the bench that would be a plus move for the Pats.
Okay, on the group results from Round 3 of our tourney. It was fun sitting in the top group while it lasted, but I had a dismal week. Thanks for nothing, Colin Kaepernick. Yeah, yeah, I’ll still draft you again for next week…
