Interesting stat by the way:

in the past 30 years the #1 seed in the AFC has only won the Super Bowl twice- 1998 Broncos, 2003 Patriots.

Arizona, NYG, SD are my picks. I've not been very lucky with NFL this season. The football (ass. soccer ;)) at least is going well :p.

Jake Delhomme.

Guess who's in a f***ing bad mood this morning! :veryangry

All season we've revolved around the running game so we come to the post season and Jake "The Saviour" Delhomme decides to try and throw the ball to Steve Smith pretty much every single play! :sob:

I'm really disappointed! I thought we could have at least made the superbowl! But last night was just embarrassing, and also highlighted what I've been saying all season that our Secondary is awful!

I'm a big fan of Delhomme but last night was the WORST I've seen him play! Good luck to the Ravens who I will now be backing to win in Tampa! :p

I don't know how we did that, but what a match.

I went to bed afterwards and couldn't really work out how we pulled that off. Thought Flacco did really well, his composure is tops, should develop into a player when he is allowed to throw a bit more.

Did someone mention that Flacco stepped out in the end zone, I must admit that is what I thought as well and I maybe completely wrong, but isn't that a safety?
They never repeated it, so haven't seen it since.

Also, what a great hit by Ray Lewis in the first half. Ouchy.

He was in the end zone still.

And the delay of game wasn't in the last two minutes of the half.

Re-watching the Cards game.

They are awesome in the first half.

I knew Arizona (+9.5) was way too much.

Just watching the Cards-Panthers game right now. What has happened to the Panthers? Serioulsy not the same team ... Currently 30-7 to the Cards ...

It's still just not a challengeable play though.

What happened last night? Went on MSN for like 5 minutes and the Cards just racked up the points! Mental!

Latvian Eagle 11-01-2009 01:40 PM

Jake Delhomme fumbled as he went to throw the ball recovered by the Cards inside our own 20, and then in pretty quick succession threw two INTs, one when we were within the Cards 20! :eek: It was horrible to watch!

Latvian Eagle 11-01-2009 01:43 PM

I think these stats pretty much sum up last night...

J. Delhomme 17/34 205 1 5

D. Williams 12 63 0 31
J. Stewart 3 12 1 9

saxoneagle 11-01-2009 02:38 PM

Poor, poor Panthers. Didn't even show up. Can't even blame the O-line - they gave Delhomme pretty good protection most of the night. IT was just poor throws, not rushed, hurried throws which led to picks.

jazman 11-01-2009 03:51 PM

I have a feeling we could have two upsets on the cards today with the Eagles and Chargers winning ... I did tip the Steelers earlier in the season but I have a doubt that they are a big game team and the question marks over Big Ben taking one too many hits ...

jazman 11-01-2009 03:52 PM

Come join the Ravens bandwagon :) :p

Jay_eagle 11-01-2009 04:42 PM

come on you giants I hate the eagles and donovan Mcflabb so much.

jlmatthews 11-01-2009 05:01 PM

Made money on the Ravens game and lost it all on the Panthers. Zona has played like absolute shit anywhere near the east coast this year. I dread the thought of Philly winning and letting them host the NFC Championship game. They don't deserve it.

Oh, and come on Steelers!

pauldrulez 11-01-2009 05:01 PM

I'll stay on the Cards bandwagon.

Delhomme. The Cards knew something about him. They had a step on all of his throws.

They have a pretty good run Defense which everyone knew about during the regular season. But, their pass Defense has stepped up a hell of a lot more.


Anyone but Pittsburgh and the Giants to win it all.

Cards vs Chargers Superbowl. They were the two Outsiders at the start.

I think Rivers and Sproles will put some numbers up on the Steelers and then the Ravens.

They can't can they? :confused: Already a higher seed than them (Arizona) in the NFC game next week.

Latvian Eagle 11-01-2009 05:06 PM

My Predictions...

NFC: Arizona @ NY Giants

AFC: Ravens @ Chargers

Superbowl: Ravens - Giants... Ravens to win.

:confused: You're confusing me now! :D

Here's what I meant -- If Philly win, the game is in the desert because Arizona is a division winner and Philly is a wildcard team.

EDIT -- me two sentences kind of ran together in my previous post... see why it was confusing.
