The NFL thread
 
Bills player collapses and is administered CPR on the field. Game suspended.

Shades of Eriksen at Euros.

Hoping for the best for the young man.

lewisuk 03-01-2023 03:34 AM

Horrible thing to see hope Hamlin is ok as you say has the same feelings as the Eriksen euros incident

Watching on espn US coverage and you can see the shock in the studio from it all

Surely the biggest news is that the Jets won 7 games this season? And that was by blowing it at the end.

Norwich_Eagle 09-01-2023 10:01 AM

NFC

Seattle Seahawks (7) @ San Francisco 49ers (2)
New York Giants (6) @ Minnesota Vikings (3)

The lowest ranked winning side to face Philadelphia Eagles in Divisional Round

AFC

The lowest ranked winning side to face Kansas City in Divisional Round

CP-RJW 09-01-2023 12:33 PM

I thought the Eagles and the Chiefs would play the lowest seeded team that makes it through any of the wildcard games?

Correct, yes my bad. I had completely forgotten the format.

The CPFC Spread Pickers league has come to an end. Congratulations to Tony P and Rays and Shine for their top placings.

For those into their NFL and like NFL Podcasts, I have just launched Episode 1 of my NFL Podcast, Microphones and Muffed Punts available on Spotify previewing the Week 1 Wildcard Games - would love a few listens and feedback!

ben1987 12-01-2023 08:52 PM

Thanks Ben - would love your feedback. If you enjoyed it then pls follow us on Spotify!

ben1987 13-01-2023 07:53 PM

If I am being honest I’ve had to stop after 10 mins. Not sure whether it was on purpose or not, but I can’t listen to analysis with the intro music still playing in the background.

Sounds like you guys obviously know what you are talking about with some of the analysis and stats. I would have to liked a bit more of an intro into the two of you, what made you want to start a podcast etc.

Happy to give another one a shot.

CT_Palace 13-01-2023 08:44 PM

I had a listen last night. I only had time for about 20 mins.
Pretty much agreed with what you guys said.

Constructive criticism: why should I listen again? TBH it could have been 2 guys chatting down the pub. I think you need to work on the presentation. If you haven't got some inside info or fresh news/analysis that the listener hasn't already read or seen somewhere, then you need a style that entertains and draws the listener in. (2 blokes chatting down the pub doesn't tempt me to listen again). Could be more lighthearted banter or perhaps protagonist where you have strongly different views. Just something other than just let's have a chat.

Third biggest NFL playoff game comeback in history.

Duuuuuvaaal :lux:

aj4england 15-01-2023 07:37 PM

Thanks for the feedback.

Will work on removing the music and adding a bit more flair.

Hopefully our predictions such as mcaffrey having a big game and Dawson Knox being the key red zone target keep people coming back for insight. Working on new features too. Appreciate all the feedbsck - first pod so was nervous!

CT_Palace 15-01-2023 10:50 PM

Bills scrape through.
Count themselves lucky they were playing such an in experienced team.

I see that if the Bills and Chiefs meet in the Conference Championship, the game will be played in Atlanta.

Norwich_Eagle 17-01-2023 02:50 PM

Yeah, while I do get it from a competitive point of view. It is an absolute killer for potential fans. 800 miles from Kansas and 900 miles from Buffalo.

aj4england 19-01-2023 08:45 AM

Further to the feedback on the pod (thanks so much!) we have added some new features and have booked some guests - this Fridays will be from a leading JagsUK fan and next week delighted to have Hannah Wilkes from Sky Sports NFL talking about what goes on behind the scenes on game day and more!

aj4england 19-01-2023 01:57 PM

Some great teams coming over to the UK and Germany in 2023!

Bills x Titans x Jags to UK
Cheifs x Pats to Germany (Munich and Frankfurt)

Opposition for each side still to be announced - possibility of the superbow champs coming over (yes, the jags ;) )

CT_Palace 19-01-2023 02:31 PM

I'm trying not to get caught up with the 49ers/Purdy hype.... a bit of positivity is fine, but the noise over Purdy and the "embarrassment of riches on the offensive side" the "best defense in the league" etc is a bit OTT.

Cowboys will be a very tough game, especially if the same Prescott turns up as last Monday night.
Fingers crossed the 9ers have enough to pip it.

aj4england 20-01-2023 09:09 AM

I agree - I have these teams very closely matched.

For me the one area of difference is the weapons - in McAffrey, Mitchell, Deebo, Ayuik and Kittle, the 49ers have a far superior offensive weapons to the Cowboys and this 1-5 is probably as strong as as anyone, the Bengals probably with Chase Higgins Boyd Hurst and Mixon would be a fair arguement in my mind.

Purdy has played well but like all of Shanahans schemes, yards after the catch are key to progressing the offense. That shouldn't feel sustainable but it has been. I had a look through some of Purdys Grid Chart rankings and was amazed that throwing down the left side of the field he has a Passer rating of 144 (anything over 100 is good) yet down the right hand side is only 60.

If Parsons and co can get past T.Williams to move Purdy out to his right then this could be a very close game. I see a low scorer and the 49ers coming out on top, purely as I don't trust McCarthy and he will likely use Zeke far too much to their detriment

Johnintheusa1 22-01-2023 02:30 AM

Good start by the Eagles!

CT_Palace 22-01-2023 03:34 AM

Both games gone (going) according to seeding.
Chiefs not really under any pressure and the Eagles making easy meat of the Giants in the fist half.

greybot 22-01-2023 11:56 AM

I watched my team lose to the Chiefs last night. It was painful. The day after I can at least reflect on the run we had and where we came from given how bad we were last season.

Trevor Lawrence is a top quarterback and didn't really do much wrong yesterday. We were just up against a Superbowl team that's been there, done it and got the t-shirt. Been good experience and lessons will surely be learnt from it.

3 Beers at HT 22-01-2023 09:50 PM

Trevor Lawrence has trodden the well worn path of Hashim Amla/Steve Smith in cricket.

Absolutely dreadful (as a rookie, tbf) at first look but quickly turning his talent into results.

Tripod 10 22-01-2023 11:04 PM

Cowboys fan for 36 years looking forward to tonight's game. 49ers best team in the NFC but if Dak plays like he did last week if will be a close game. Really do fear Deebo and Mccaffery.
Dallas defence needs to have a top game to be in with a chance.

Who said that?

Because with a couple of minutes left in the first half this game is exactly as I thought it would be. Very very tight game that I feel Prescott's experience over Purdy's may well decide it.

CT_Palace 23-01-2023 03:46 AM

GET IN!!!

Wow that was a tight game! Stress factor 10.

3rd title game in 4 years!


Next up the Eagles :eek::eek:

Wilbraham413 23-01-2023 04:16 AM

Niners were horrible. Hard to imagine they can beat the Eagles, unless Philly chokes.

Bengals keep flying under the radar. Either that or the Bills just choke too often. Cincy at KC should be a good one. I'm expecting a KC win, but the Bengals can definitely take them.

You're right, the 9ers won't beat Philadelphia, but you are very wrong to say the 9ers were horrible. That was a top notch defense put up by Dallas tonight. Purdy and Kittle manufactured the 9ers only touch down and the defense came up big yet again. No way was that horrible.

Tripod 10 23-01-2023 10:57 AM

Well that was a massive let down. Dak back to being rubbish again although the play calling by Moore was abject.
Thought the 49ers were poor but deserved the win. Dallas D played very well again.

aj4england 26-01-2023 03:24 PM

Despite the perhaps slightly abject games, i thought there were a good range of stories and match ups throughout the weekend and the best 4 teams remain.

To be honest I think the Eagles win is being slightly overhyped as to me the Giants would in any other year, be a Wildcard team at best. That said, hard not to be impressed in how they dispatched them so comfortably with Hurts looking better tha nexpected with the injury.

I think the Eagles 49ers will be a great game. I have normally been critical of Shanahans coaching of being too conservative in the 2nd half (Going back to falcons days not just 49ers) but he had a good game.

Im in love with this Bengals side and as much as I have loved watching the Cheifs in the last 2-3 years, but i am finding it hard to buy in to this team that to me seem devoid of game changers in their secondary and this will be put to the test with big bodied Boyd and Higgins and explained why Perine ran them over earlier in the season.

Previewed this weeks game on my pod with Hannah Wilkes and looking forward to welcoming the latest addition to the skysports presenting team, Pheobe Schecter joining shortly!

CT_Palace 29-01-2023 08:28 PM

Go 9ers!

My expectations are very low. Hopefully the 9ers can make a game of it (unlike the Giants) but I just don't see a win today.

greybot 29-01-2023 08:30 PM

Looking forward to this one! Good luck..!

Eagles getting nothing out of the 9ers secondary, so it's dinks and dunks up the middle. McCaffery is the danger. Need to cancel him out as Johnson ain't gonna throw it

Johnintheusa1 29-01-2023 10:45 PM

Fun fact (for no-one in particular) Johnson was QB for the Bucs in my one and only in-person Eagles game a few years back (2009). Notable for Mike Vick appearing for a few plays after we'd signed him as a wildcat QB

Nah. Eagles got this. Easy.
9ers would struggle to beat Philly with a regular QB , but with this 4th stringer its pointless.

EDIT: who is also injured now. What a joke. It never stops.

It's a tough call hence my "take your pick" comment previously.
Never write off Mahomes, but do think Philly will have the edge.

aj4england 30-01-2023 02:51 PM

Some shambolic officiating lessened my enjoyment of the KC Bengals game. The injuries to 49ers also made that one sided, though the lack of discipline by the 49ers really demonstrated a team that is quite mentally weak. Eagles i think would have won even with Purdy fit, and backed that result accordingly. Cheifs Bengals was also going to be tight and last possession win kind of game.

Eagles are rightly favourites, though I was probably less impressed with Jalen Hurts throwing and it took them a long time to figure out they needed to establish the run by passing into the slot.

A good game, but I see a low scorer

CT_Palace 30-01-2023 03:05 PM

I thought both games were marred by some pretty poor officiating.

Mahomes is one tough cookie, with his ankle injury still lingering, he literally played with one leg.

I am not picking anyone as I find that I enjoy the game better that way

I am an Eagles fan so will be biased. Think the game hinges on whether the Eagles pass rush can get past the Chiefs OL (which I think they will) and pressure Mahomes (which is up in the air).

greybot 31-01-2023 10:57 AM

I am a Jaguars fan and after watching our playoff game versus the Chiefs this year, our playoff game versus the Patriots in 2018 and the two games on Sunday, I accept we will never make a Superbowl in my lifetime due to big team bias refereeing.

Will still enjoy the regular season but my hopes of just reaching a Superbowl once have been completely diminished now.

The Chiefs weren’t a big team up until very recently, nor were the Bengals or the Eagles when they made their previous superbowls. Hell, the 9ers have more superbowls than the 3 other teams that played on Sunday combined.

8 MLB teams have drafted a quarterback who went on to win the Superbowl.

12 teams haven't won it or haven't drafted a superbowl winning qb. Lions have never won a superbowl but did draft Matt Stafford.

Latvian Eagle 06-02-2023 05:15 PM

My boys Carolina have been to two Superbowls at least even if we lost both. :hmph:

The last one was an absolute case of losing your nerve when it mattered, going bloody 15-1 in the season.

EagleSE24 06-02-2023 06:55 PM

What’s the thinking behind the Bears and their number one pick? Are they going to trade the pick? Other teams know they’re not in the market for a QB but will they want to trade up simply to deny rivals the first pick? E.g the Titans have pick 2 so would have first choice of QBs if Chicago stays no. 1, but do they consider trading just to stop someone else moving ahead of them in the draft?

All mock drafts I have seen either have Chicago drafting a guy called Anderson number 1 I think or they trade with either Houston, Indianapolis or Carolina. I hope we manage to get one of the top 2 or 3 QBs in the draft, but not sure we'd be willing to give up much to go number 1.

CP-RJW 06-02-2023 09:55 PM

The Bears would be idiots not to trade down for another early pick or two, there’s so many holes in that team.

aj4england 07-02-2023 11:35 AM

Dont see why the Bears would keep pick 1 - unless they think their is a premium edge rusher, though I dont see why the texans would go this route. Trading down but staying in the top 5 is what you want. They want players but they need premium players.

Wil likely be Jalen Carter or Anderson as the non QBs.

kayjay 09-02-2023 01:41 AM

Think the Chiefs are weaker than in past seasons.
JuJu and MVS aren't having big enough impacts in games
and I don't rate McKinnon or Pachinko.
If Kelce has a quiet night by his standards Eagles will romp it.

The best player over the last decade in baseball (by miles and miles and miles) is a guy called Mike Trout who plays for the Angels. He’s a huge Philadelphia Eagles fan, and tragically has been to more Eagles playoff games than Angels playoff games.

Johnintheusa1 12-02-2023 11:51 PM

Getting a bit antsy now... Fox pundits heavily favor the Eagles. But I reckon Mahomes has a surprise or two...
