Your NFC Divisional Round Playoff Game Part 2 Open Thread

Let’s keep ‘er rolling along like a certain running back, shall we?

TO THE GAME!

Seahawks/Packers:

-Are the Packers the most underwhelming 13-3 team in ever? I went down their sked and I can see all of 2(!) quality wins. One is versus the Chiefs early in the season and the other is against the Vikes much later on. There was much dreg to play against and they won most of them. When they did play a half decent squad they got their balls blown off by the Niners, 37-8.

-Rodgers 7.5 yards per pass attempt is his lowest since 2011 and speaks to the receiving corps not having a game-breaker anywhere on the roster. Yet Davante should do okay-the last time he played against cb’s Griffin and Flowers in a game he had 65+ yards against each one of them.

-Seattle has acquitted itself well in the run game despite leaning on a 3rd stringer, a practice squad-er and a guy that was living in a cardboard box under a bridge just three weeks ago. And the passing game is coming along as well with D.K. Metcalf catching 3 balls 20+ yards down the field just last week.

-Maybe keep an eye out for Wilson turnovers, particularly intercepts. In seven games against the Packers he has 10 picked passes. Green Bay is +12 in turnovers this year so this might be a thing.

-Prediction Time! I’m not sure about this one but I do know it’ll be close because Seattle loves themselves the one score final whether it’s a W or an L. Let’s say Seahawks 27-24?

Let me see those those brain farts of yours.

It’s not bad enough that the Rooney Rule sucks, but that it is used as an exemplar in professions where it also does more harm than good.

Wait — I didn’t want watch any NFL this weekend but just clarify this for me….

Green Bay just went and fired their long-time SB-winning coach last year because he wasn’t winning enough with the roster they built. Everyone is like, “nah, McCarthy is a good coach; he won a super Bowl, by GAWD!” and the Packers were just like, “yeahno, he should have more than that and we’re not wasting anymore time on this guy.” And they go get a new Rookie coach who Is probably just like, “holy shit, I’ll just do all the things everyone knows McCarthy should have done.” So I consider the Pack being in the conference game proof that GB made the right move and MORE IMPORTANTLY proved their assessment of McCarthy right.

And then Jerry Jones goes and hires Mike McCarthy.

This is hilariously true.

Horatio Cornblower

I take issue with the “hilariously” portion of that sentence.

Moose -The End Is Well Nigh

Simplistic hot take is simplistic. However, it was definitely time to move on from McCarthy.

Jones views McCarthy as someone he can “handle” who “knows his place” and he will interfere with the team just same as before because players know who the boss is and can go over the coaches head if they have a problem. Now hot takes can proceed in both areas.

Since September, games have ended at 1030 or 1100 pm on Sunday nights. It’s only 930 local tonight. What the fuck am I going to do? Yes, more Scotch and some edibles and a couple bong rips, I hate it when the season gets all tightened up.

Normally I’m a little jealous of the life my dog gets to lead but this weekend I am particularly jealous cause I’m here in snowy (and now sad) Seattle while she gets to hang out in sunny LA and sleep with models.

Rooting for the Titans is a gimme, but I think I’ll be pulling for the 49ers just so we can have a Belichick castoff Super Bowl.

It’s been a few years since I had to actually decide who I was going to root for in the AFC, since NE has always been in the equation for me. This year, I’m pulling for the former Houston Oilers. At least Jeff Fisher is out of the picture, unlike back in January 2000.

Boo! Now the only good family drama left in the NFL is with the Bowlens.

And the Shanahans too, of course, as told by blaxabbath.

I think that AAron should drive up a little north and bang Princess Meghan. THAT will get some tongues wagging.

Rodgers with the passive-aggressive attack on his receivers giving us more than a slight hint why everyone who spends more than 30 minutes with him seems to hate him.

? the only interview I saw with rodgers was where he said that Adams carried the game for them

Horatio Cornblower

He did, but in the same breath took a shot at him for running out of bounds.

This irrational Rodgers hate is delicious.

Jimmy Graham is not a crook?

Horatio Cornblower

Good god, that’s not even close.

At one point is an NFL coach just going to take his team off the field and then tell the press that if the NFL is just going to allow shit calls to decide the game he doesn’t see any reason to risk his player’s health?

Col. Duke LaCross

And how is Blake Cleteman involved in every primetime game? I miss Sassy Ref.

Which is almost the exact opposite of connectivity, in that a mode of communication is literally cut off.
