I'd like to have LeBron, Chris Paul and Kevin Durant on a team. Man, they know what they are doing. It also looked like they tried to teach Carmelo Anthony how to play b-ball as a team sport, to limited success. Glad that guy is not a Blazer.

NBC coverage is nutty. That and I really would prefer to see sports than Bob Costas so much. Although Missy Franklin was a fun interview segment. I think she will be doing all the late night talk shows when she gets back. She's funny.

How about that kid from Bend? THe gold medaled decathlete? I guess he was better here in Eugene. Oh well, it's still a gold medal.

Is it football yet?

Have Fun

Kinda related but: To me, KumoriCon is like a preview of the NFL season. :D

Well, even though they did go undefeated in the preseason, I don't think they've shown anything deserving of the label "Super Bowl Bound."  They are quite possibly playoff bound, however, I think it'd be as a wild-card, with a possible first-round victory (depending on where they go).

Ya know, the one game I want to see in person the most this year is the matchup between the Patriots and Seahawks on 10/14. The only home game for the Hawks in October. I am still seething at the Pats over the Spygate thing. Cheaters NEVER Prosper. (Remember Super Bowls XLII and XLVI.)

Meh, I couldn't care less about it, especially since they were spying on the Jets...

I like how all of Seattle's home games in December are division match-ups!

Oooohhh.... looks like the Seahawks, who started the 2012 NFL regular season where they ended the 2011 season, have stumbled out of the gate, losing a heartbreaker to the Cardinals, 20-16. Let's hope they can pick up the pace when they come home next week.......

Two Monday Night matchups tomorrow, and they will both be ragers: Baltimore/Cincinnati and San Diego/Oakland. I am sooo looking foward to those.....

That Seahawks game was terrible... which was what I sort of expected.  I think that if Arizona had started off with Kolb instead of Skelton AND Seattle still played how they did, the score would've been more lopsided...

I still think Seattle has a good chance against Dallas next week, provided that Pete Carroll works out the two major flaws the Seahawks had this week: not protecting the QB and too many penalties.

That they did, and thank Haruhi for it.  If they had lost to the Bears, I'd have to consider giving up hope on them winning the North.

It was hilarious!  My favorite part in the game was the Romo interception!  (You'd think that the Cowboys would've learned by now that they would be smart to get a new QB...).

This has been a crazy week in the NFL. I will be frank, when the Seahawks won, I thought that Mike McCarthy would one up what Bill Belichick did and pull a Happy Gilmore on the refs! But alas, he handled the sitch with more class than Belicheat did.

I hate to play moderator in this sitch, but keep any comments civil, okay? For the sake of this board.

Though I'm upset by this, I also find it funny that Seattle lost to Detroit.  Reason: beforehand, every loss the Seahawks had was a division match-up, and everything else was a win; by this logic, Seattle should have won.  Oh, well.

Not only that, but they might be able to win the division!  This could be the best thing sports-related I've gotten wrong in a long time!

                         Now      Week 15                Week 16
San Francisco .... 9-3-1    @ NE = L      9-4-1  @ SEA = L   9-5-1
Seattle ............. 8-5       @ BUF = W   9-5     v. SF = W   10-5

Once these three games take place (which the end results provided are quite possible), a Seattle home victory against the St. Louis Rams OR a San Francisco home loss to the Arizona Cardinals, and the division goes to the Seahawks!

Final score yesterday 50-17. Seattle triumphs over the Buffalo Bills.

SOMEBODY TELL ME WHAT KIND OF WHEATIES THE SEAHAWKS HAVE BEEN EATING. I WANT SOME OF IT!!!

50 to 17 Seahawks win that's just insane. i love it, but that's just an insane rout.

And I'm happy to see the Redskins and the 49ers are now in the playoffs.

Actually, the Redskins haven't clinched jack.  They are just currently sitting on top of the NFC East, but only because of tie-breaker procedures.  Dallas and New York have the exact same record.  However, I do believe that the 'Skins have the best chance at winning it.  (Which is what I hope happens).

UPDATE!!!

The six AFC teams have been determined, now they just need to sort out seeding.

  • The Baltimore Ravens have clinched the North, and will be seeded #4.
  • The Indianapolis Colts :P and Cincinnati Bengals are the wild-cards; unless there's something that I'm unaware of, the Colts will be #5.
  • The Houston Texans (South champs) are currently #1, but have a tied record with the Denver Broncos (West), holding the tie-breaker via better conference record.
  • The New England Patriots (East) could get a bye with a win and a Houston loss OR a Denver loss; should both teams lose, New England will become the top seed.

Predictions:
#1 - Houston, #2 - Denver, #3 - New England, #4 - Baltimore, #5 - Indianapolis, #6 - Cincinnati  (In other words, no change)

Four of the NFC teams have been determined, but only two divisions have champs.

  • The Atlanta Falcons have won the South AND are seeded #1.
  • The current #2 is the Green Bay Packers, who have won the North.  However, this can change in the event that they lose AND the San Francisco 49ers win OR San Francisco loses and the Seattle Seahawks win.
  • The West still needs to have a champion; currently, the 49ers have a half-game lead over the Seahawks; a SF win OR a SEA loss will give the title to the defending champs, while a SF loss AND a SEA win will return it to the Pacific Northwest; both teams will be in the playoffs, no matter what.
  • The East has come down to two teams, the Washington Redskins (currently leading) and the Dallas Cowboys; they will be facing each other during this final week; if Dallas loses, there's no chance for them to be a wild-card, whereas Washington still has a slight chance.
  • The sixth and final playoff contender is currently slated to be the Minnesota Vikings, currently holding the tie-breaker over the Chicago Bears via division standing; and win by Minnesota OR a loss by Chicago COULD send the Vikings to the playoffs; Chicago needs to win AND have Minnesota lose in order to reach the playoffs.
  • there is a possibility that Washington (should they fail to clinch the East) and the New York Giants could tie things up, having all four teams with a 9-7 record; should this happen, the ranking could go as followed: Washington, New York, Minnesota, Chicago.

Predictions:
#1 - Falcons, #2 - Packers, #3 - 49ers, #4 - Redskins, #5 - Seahawks, #6 - Bears

With these being said, here's how I currently see the playoffs going.
Wild-Card Weekend: Colts @ Ravens = IND by +9, Bengals @ Patriots = NE by +13, Seahawks @ Redskins = SEA by +2, Bears @ 49ers = CHI by +5
Division Weekend: Colts @ Texans = HOU by +12, Patriots @ Broncos = NE by +2, Bears @ Falcons = ATL by +8, Seahawks @ Packers = GB by +5
Conference Weekend: Patriots @ Texans = HOU by +8, Packers @ Falcons = ATL by +3
Super Bowl: Houston Texans vs. Atlanta Falcons = Atlanta Falcons by +4

Remember when I said this?
Well, I can now look forward to the NFL season..... I declared @ KumoriCon that the Seahawks were going to be Super Bowl Bound! :D

Look where we are now! :D

Though I don't think Seattle will make it to the Super Bowl this year, I do believe that Russell Wilson will take the rookie season record for touchdowns thrown.  The current record is 26, set by Peyton Manning; Wilson is currently at 25, and will be facing the Rams this final week.

We'll just have to wait and see Washougal_Otaku. But with the way the NFL season has been so completely unpredictable my sense of incredulity has left the building so to speak. In short I think anything is possible right now.

Technically, yes.  Anything is possible, but probable is another.  i.e. It was possible that the Browns could have reached the playoffs, but the probability was (even at the beginning) virtually non-existent.  I think the same can be said about the Hawks reaching the Super Bowl this year.  Next year... who knows? 8)

THE SEASON IS OVER!!!

Schedule

Wild-Card Weekend
Saturday @ 1:30 - Cincinnati Bengals @ Houston Texans (3)              My pick: Cincinnati by +5
             @ 5 - Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers (3)               My pick: Green Bay by +3
Sunday @ 10 - Indianapolis Colts @ Baltimore Ravens (4)                   My pick: Indianapolis by +9
           @ 1:30 - Seattle Seahawks @ Washington Redskins (4)          My pick: Seattle by +2

Division Weekend
Saturday @ 1:30 - The game @ Denver Broncos (1)
             @ 5 - The game @ San Francisco 49ers (2)
Sunday @ 10 - The game @ Atlanta Falcons (1)
           @ 1:30 - The game @ New England Patriots (2)

If we assume that I am correct, Denver will host Cincinnati, San Francisco will host Green Bay, Atlanta will host Seattle, and New England will host Indianapolis.  In this case, I favor the hyped-up Manning/Brady rematch for the AFC, and the Falcons hosting the Packers.

Conference Weekend
Times to be determined

If my prior predictions are correct, I see the winners being the Patriots and Falcons.

Super Bowl
Sunday, February 3, @ 3:30

With this prediction, I'm leaning in favor of the Patriots to win it all.

Oh, yeah, and two key things that I think deserve to be talked about, outside of the playoffs...
  • The St. Louis Rams have, for the 9th straight year, ended the season with a LOSING record! :D HAPPY TIMES!!!
  • Tony Romo has once again been the key source to Dallas' failure to reach the playoffs; will they FINALLY throw him out with the trash?

I've got kind of an unfair advantage. My stepdad has NFL network.

^ NICE!

Well, I'm a little late for this, but the Division round is half-way over, and I'm overjoyed by what's happened!

The Denver Broncos eliminated themselves from the playoffs, thanks to an overtime interception thrown by "the great" Peyton Manning, leading up to a game-winning field goal for the Baltimore Ravens!  Now they will be watching later today to see if they will be flying down to Houston or up to Boston.

Whoever the winner in the Green Bay Packers/San Francisco 49ers bout would be was guaranteed less assurance.  The victorious 49ers will either to Atlanta, provided that the Falcons can overcome the Seahawks, or host their division rivals, should Seattle be victorious.

After falling behind, it's time for updates!

San Francisco defeated Atlanta to reach the Super Bowl for the first time in 18 years.  They are 5-0 in the Super Bowl, looking to be the only 6-time winners with no losses.  Will they be successful against Baltimore?  New England?  Let's see what happens in today's AFC title game!

Well, at least my AFC wish came true!  Baltimore knocks off New England, and reaches the Super Bowl for only the second time in franchise history!  One team will remain undefeated in SB history, while another one will have its first loss!

Wish: Baltimore def. San Francisco by +5
Predict: San Francisco def. Baltimore by +9

Well, my wish was close to reality this time around.  The Baltimore Ravens have won the Super Bowl!  Woohoo!
