Your “In Which We Learn That Beating The Falcons is a Foles’ Errand” NFC Playoff Game Open Thread

A hale and hearty “Hullo!” to all my fellow pigskin huffers. Boy, did you ever hunker down to the funkiest spot on the net for the football watching. Say, here’s a trivia query: “When was the last time the overall #1 seed was a home dog?” No googling! If memory serves, you’d have to all the way back to 1935 or so when the Camden Meat Maulers hosted the Decataur Drooling Horde. What happened was that the Horde’s general manager up and snuck Notre Dame’s recently-graduated triple threat quarterback Sonny “The Ukrainian Tornado” Poroshenko onto the roster thus ensuring the victory. Apparentlly, the story goes, Commissioner Judge And Jury Kenesaw Mountain Landis (his billfold bursting at the seams with a very recent infusion of sawbucks) saw nothing wrong with this cheeky maneuver. The rest we’re all very much aware of-meat was mauled, hordes drooled, the body count totaled 3 and the final 0-0 score left the crowd chanting (for the very first time) “GO, METEOR!”. Will events unfold in a similar matter today? For the answers we must go… TO THE GAME!

Atlanta/Philadelphia:

She’s gonna be a cold one for the players today-it’ll be about 20 degrees with the windchill or what Canadians would call “a day at the beach’.

Injuries:

Yeah, there’ll be a few.

Good King Wentz Is Lost:

The before-amentioned Nick Foles has quite a bit on his plate today. Them Eagles finished up 13-3 but their brand new-ish starting qb finished up 23 for 49 in their last two tilts. (That 2013 Pro Bowl appearance back in ’13 seems like a two careers ago) On third downs over that two game stretch the news doesn’t get any better-he’s 1 of 17 passing on third downs. Did I mention that he’s fumbled in each of his last three starts?

Keep An Eye Out For:

The Falcons D, per the last eight weeks of the season is a top 5 unit overall. Most impressive has been 2nd year lb Deion Jones. He’s the one that intercepted Brees in spectacular fashion to save the Falcons playoff hopes and also batted down a potential TD score while shadowing Sammy Watkins in the end zone.

My Hot Takeaway:

It’ll take some time for each offense to get going so the first one to 20 wins. Falcons over Eagles 20-13.

I’m done but you’re just getting started-“GO GO GADGET FINGERS!”

Is that why I like Tony Romo more than this Collinsworth guy? Cause Tony Romo doen’t talk as much?

litre_cola

I think when Tony talks he doesn’t only do it to hear his own voice. I really like him as an announcer and I hate teh Cowboys.

Redshirt

Romo talks like a fan, like he’s sitting on a couch next you holding a beer.

Collinsworth talks down to you and has favorite players who can’t do no wrong.

I did too. Now I am forced to like him. At least he isnt a felon. Sad I have to say that.

Nationwide ads don’t suck as much when Peyton Manning isn’t in them. I mean, they still suck just not as much.

King Hippo

I went with Tits +14 for $55, but to spread the risk, took their team over (17.5) for $105. I reckon even if the Pats ass blast ’em, it will involve garbage time scoring.

King Hippo

also an extra $145 on N’Awlins, I really can’t imagine that fixture not being within a FG either way

Get a load of Collinsworth cumming in his slacks over a Matt Ryan four yard completion.

He’s been edging/watching Tom Brady film all week. He’s, um, at the red line from release, if you know what I mean.
