Both home teams favoured by over a touchdown next week.

Suffice to say, being a gambler, I would be taking both away teams with the spread.

Something that is highly underrated about Andrew Luck.

His speed (timed) is the same as Cam Newton.

Ridiculously agile for a man as good in the pocket as he is.

Elway getting busy! John Fox let go in Denver, the rest of the coaching staff told they have permission to look elsewhere for employment.

Luck is unbelievably good, think he could outstrip Rodgers at some point.

However the big story from Colts Broncos really should be Peyton and how poor the Broncos offence was.

I was pleased to see Cowboys lose, and explain confidently to everyone in the bar I was in why it wasn't a catch, also that no one can blame Romo, but worried that this could be a big start of something for the Cowboys, while the Eagles tread water.

However Cowboys will probably bugger it up as usual by spending all their cap space on Murray and Bryant and letting some other vital cogs go.

Who does he want?

Fox isn't great, but there must be someone out there that everyone else has overlooked.

It's not Shanahan apparently, so unless it's Gruden or someone who has been away from the game, I'm stumped.

oz_da II 13-01-2015 10:27 AM

Gruden has the life of Riley, I can't see him going anywhere.

Latvian Eagle 13-01-2015 12:09 PM

I reckon it will be a Seahawks vs Colts Superbowl, Hawks to win.

Seahawks vs Packers will be a tight game too I reckon, I just fancy Luck to pull something out of the bag at Foxboro.

Indeed, that ESPN role is perfect for him, and pays a ridiculous amount.

Not prepared to call the final yet, but will say that the Seattle (spit) Green Bay game will be all about Rodgers' mobility. If he can only hobble around like he did against Dallas the Hawks (spit) defense will pound him.

I predicted a Seahawks/Patriots Superbowl at the start of the season, so have got to stick with that and predict two home wins on Sunday.

Although I wouldn’t put it past Andrew Luck to go into New England and do something special. This is one incredibly talented and uniquely gifted quarterback who will most likely be in the same category as we all class Brady and Manning when he is in the twilight of his career.

The Packers are sadly not the same team on the road. If this was at Lambeau, it’s a different story. But they finished 4-4 on the road during the reguar season (that included that defeat in Buffalo late on, which is the reason they need to go on the road for this game and not be hosting it themselves). And Seattle’s defensive is looking better than it was last year. And that’s a frightening prospect. Plus, I can’t imagine Rodgers being at 100% full capacity with this calf injury and you just know the Seahawks are going to be throwing all kind of things at him from different area’s.

Two absolutely intriguing games thought. Booked Monday off work so will be watching both without worrying about having to get up at 7am in the morning!

will spend on Dez, not on Murray...they've learned a lesson

AFC Championship Game: Colts @ Patriots
NFC Championship Game: Saints @ Seahawks

Superbowl Score and Winners: Patriots defeat Seahawks 20-17

Since this thread appears to have died this season compared to other seasons, thought I'd go back and look at my predictions for the year.

Post number 42571 onwards for everyone elses.

Bold Prediction was let down by the Rams with only 4, even the 49ers scraped 6 out of NFC West victories!

A few good predictions, a few bad.

Kelvin Benjamin had a good season, as did Julio. Phins weren't too far from playoffs and were playing well until the end of the season. On for picking the superbowl teams as well.

Crashed out on my bold prediction very early, same with Def Rookie of the year...

Awful weather in Seattle today? Very windy and rainy

(normal Seattle weather?!)

Jonboy 18-01-2015 07:14 PM

It's not unusual this time of year.

pauldrulez 18-01-2015 08:45 PM

Lynch will be ejected if he wears gold cleats.

I would not want him on my team next year. Mental case, with no respect for the rules, one of the few players that I wouldn't be sad to see injured. His attitude is vile
