    Yeah, not so much.

    What gives them no chance is Brock Osweiler is their QB and they're playing a much better team at home.

They eventually get tired and don't get to Brady, and he beats you.

    Everyone is going to blame Osweiler for throwing that pick, but i think O'Brien set the table for it by sitting on a 1 and 4 point deficit for a few drives in a row and waiting for Clowney to get a strip sack. They were winning the turnover battle 2-0 and losing by 11 anyway!
    I don't blame Osweiler. He is who he is. But I also don't think it's O'Brien's mentality which give them no chance to win the game. He also realizes who Osweiler is (not before handing him the big contract). You play with what you have. He can play all the 'modern' NFL scheme but they will be down by 3 scores in 1st quarter. Not much he could do when your QB can't even convert 3rd and short.

    So far this post season, there has been no reason to watch any 4th quarter.

    That's what I mean. There's a vast talent gap, so to give yourself a chance at winning, you need to play a high variance style, not a low one.

    You are right, if they go for it on 4th and 3 from the pats 40, they may lose by a lot more, but they also may increase their odds of winning. Would you prefer a guarantee of losing by only 14 or a 10% chance of winning with a 90% chance of losing by 20+?

    Osweiler is bad, we all agreed, which is why waiting to go down 2 scores (which was inevitable, given the skill gap and them punting on 4th and 3-5 in their drives) and then having him get desperate was going to be ugly

    Pats showed vulnerability last night. Maybe one day they'll play a decent team.

    If KC wins tonight, New England is going to the Super Bowl. Belichick v. Andy Reid in game management situations is a mismatch.

    Wow is Dallas's defense this bad??? They have absolutely no pass rush. Green Bay is basically daring Dallas to come after Rogers. They only did like 7-8 running plays. And they havent had to double team anyone on the DLine.

    If this is how the Dallas D will play making no adjustments you might as well declare Green Bay the winner.

    Although the Dallas defense is meh to OK, when Rodgers is playing like he has been the last month plus, the defense doesnt matter, he will carve them up

    But the Seahawks were still in the game when I made those picks before they completely imploded.

    Aaron Rodgers...take a bow, son! Take a bow!

    What a throw to Jared Cook to set up Mason Crosby's game-winning field goal from 50 yards out.

    Kudos to Dak Prescott too. What a playoff debut he had in a losing effort.

    You just hate to see a guy like Chris Christie endure so much heartbreak.

    I think Jerry Jones has the same look he had when the Giants beat them in the 2007 NFC Divisional Round.

    There are few things in sports that make me happier than seeing the Cowboys (and their overwhelmingly cocky ass*ole fans) get kicked in the balls like that.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers kicked six field goals and still beat the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Travis Kelce had a go with the officials on Eric Fisher's holding penalty on James Harrison that negated a game-tying two-point conversion.
    Um Travis, that was a clear hold.

    That's what I thought. I think Kelce is trying to get the next storyline going for his reality show.

    ARodg is amazing.

    Think he had something like a 24-0 TD/INT ratio his last 9 games.

    Sometimes I listen to Buck or Michaels or whomever ballwash a player and I wish I had never bought a TV, but every time it was implied that Rodgers was some kind of generational player these last 2 weeks he proved it so. As stupid as it sounds, there was that moment where they were having a little laugh about Rodgers standing there with his chinstrap unbuckled, kinda smirking toward the sideline......that's when I knew Green Bay was never going to lose.
