What We Learned From the NFL Divisional Round of the Playoffs

What a football weekend!! It was fun to watch; some would even say nerve wracking too. I would be one of those people. After this weekend we are down to 4 teams! We are now in the Conference Championship round of the playoffs.

It’s do or die time! It’s win or go home time!

Sorry I couldn’t help myself with the clichés. Are you ready for my recap? I know you are! On with it . . .

Missed field goals will come back to bite you in the bum.

If you take away a QB’s one and only weapon, they will lose. Who knew?

When the Saints advance in the playoffs nobody will talk about Bounty Gate. When the Pats advance, everybody will talk about Spy Gate. Go ahead and mention it to me, I dare you.

Throwing an illegal forward pass instead of going out of bounds will cost you the potential to force OT. Just a tip Colston – you go out of bounds every single time.

Tom Brady doesn’t need to throw TD passes when you can score 6 TDs on rushes.

Throwing 4 interceptions will probably cost you the game.

Kaepernick is cocky and lacks class. Wait, we already knew that.

The Panthers turned out to be just overhyped kittens.

Waiting until the 4th quarter to show up *cough* Chargers *cough* will also cause you to lose the game.

If you get 2 concussions in 22 days, they will make you wear a giant helmet that makes your head look really small.

Patriots fans bitter about Welker being in Denver need to not spend the week leading up to the AFC Championship ripping Welker apart for being a “dropper” or a sub-par receiver. He’s one of the best, he’s gone, deal with it. I know I have.

I had a reader ask last week if I forgot my predictions for the divisional round of the playoffs. If you’ve been reading my stuff for any length of time, you know that I don’t do predictions. I don’t like to do them. Football is unpredictable. People are unpredictable. Making predictions makes me nervous and edgy. I’m nervous and edgy enough when it comes to watching football, I don’t need predictions to magnify those feelings.

I will go off script today though and make predictions. I made them in the radio show last night with @GridironBeauties so I will extend those predictions here. I don’t do score predictions. Like at all. So don’t ask. I find it supremely annoying.

So here are the teams I believe will be in the Super Bowl. You ready for it? Are you holding your breath? Do you really want to know? No ripping me apart if one or neither of these teams makes it either!

Super Bowl XLVIII will be…Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots.

There. I said it.
