I think Cinderella doesn't find the slipper and the Texans ride turns into a pumpkin. I like them, like the story, but the Ravens were playing lights out.

Packers' ride will end this weekend as well.

Lions will keep going. That should be a good game. Just never been a fan of TB and really don't care to watch them. This weekend I will have to.

The Bills will finally beat the Chiefs. Chiefs have been kind of a mystery this season. I think the Bill D rises to the occasion.

I want the Packers to lose the championship game.
That’s the ideal scenario, get no draft capital and don’t go to the SB.

I got the 49ers as the only home team winning this weekend.
I will kill you if you cut me at the knees. You will drink with me when invited and stay til I say so. We only listen to American Music. I make men nervous with just my presence. I expect an apology if you hold. I throw linemen at QB's. Believe the Lore!

One of my favorite weeks of the year, when the 49ers break the hearts of the Packers in the playoffs.

Shanahan extremely pass happy tonight and it may cost him. Criminal that McCaffery only has 14 carries when he is averaging 6 yds per carry. Shanahan's play calling looks a little Nagied tonight.

Niners played tight for 3.5 quarters. Love made a really stupid pass attempt to end it.

I hate the Packers with the heat of a thousand suns.

But Jordan Love is the truth. His game ending interception notwithstanding, he’s going to be a pain in our collective a$$es for a long time.

Kid has the goods.

Yeah, this is very annoying. Hopefully he asks for top dollar this offseason and at least hamstrings them financially, a bit.

For now, though, I will enjoy the loss.

I'm happy that Future HOF LB Roquan Smith is able to make a deep playoff run with a team.

I read that. It's great trolling of a division rival.

I remember that game, Favre was carrying that vikes team on his back while all world players like Adrian Peterson were pissing down their legs all game.

Watching the playoffs and I’ve noticed how much faster teams are on offense than the Bears. Not just pure speed, but linemen faster off the ball, backs faster to the hole, receivers faster in and out of their breaks, quarterbacks faster in their drops. Everything is sped up compared to the Bears.

Lions had a poor possession there. Lion D has to come up big now. If the Lions pull this out, that place will go nuts. Be great to see.

So did we draft slow players?

I think it’s coaching and coaching is being played down in the enthusiasm to draft a shiny new can’t fail QB.

I agree with the coaching aspect but also think some limitations currently at QB could play into it. Catching the ball standing still vs moving is a huge difference. Getsy had a ton of curls and wr screens that the receiver would be hardly moving when catching. We didn’t seem to get into hitting a rb leaking out of the backfield while moving down either this year.

How do you ever know which it is? I feel you can argue either side depending on which side you're trying to defend.
