    49'ers win. It wasn't as exciting as I hoped it would be in the end. Was hoping for at least some late game action by Rodgers to tie or win it, but SF played out the clock very nicely to prevent that. Kaepernick running for a first down to pretty much decide the game doesn't do push my buttons like seeing people throw for a first down in high pressure situations does. Just feels more like a defensive failure and a 1 man show then the team work of a good pass play.

    Anyway, we know the matchups for next week, time to start pondering the outcomes!

    I'm calling it :

    Chargers upset the Broncos
    Colts and Patriots will be another shoot out game, Patriots win in the end.

    Panthers beat the Niners, with both QB's running over 75 yds.
    Seahawks beat the Saints again, with at least 2 INT.

    I don't know...49ers were my saving grace for my wildcard picks or I would have been 0 for 4...but I think I'm going to be lame and say that I think all current 1 and 2 seeds will progress, though I think 49ers and Colt victories are more likely than Saints/Chargers. So:

    Broncos over Chargers
    Patriots over Colts

    Seahawks over Saints
    Panthers over 49ers

    Compared to how they've been I'd say they showed up big, just wasn't enough. I don't know if it's the talent or Capers but I don't see them getting back to the Super Bowl without an improved defense. People forget they had top a 5 D in 2010.

    The Bengals playing badly is hardly enough to give any credence to a random /b post. Overall I thought the Bengals/Chargers game was pretty well called (as was Saints/Eagles and Colts/Chiefs), no really egregious missed or questionable calls. If we see some really iffy calls in against Denver this week then maybe you can start saying something but I'm still skeptical.

    I'd also point out that the post is slightly self contradictory. If the Chargers were determined to be winner back in May when the schedules were announced then how exactly is it Goodell creating a Cinderella story now? Unless the claim is that literally the entire NFL season is fixed then there is no way to know that the Chargers would be a Cinderella team in January way back when the schedules were announced.

    Chargers 49 Broncos 23
    Colts 35 Pats 9
    Seahawks 31 Saints 31 (T)
    RG eliminates both the 49ers and Panthers on account of two separate drug incidents that somehow point to the Seahawks secondary, and all four starters are consequently banned from the NFL leading to a Chargers victory in the Superbowl after they defeat the Colts in dramatic fashion, aided by a missed field goal in which they aligned illegally.

    Take it easy boss, it's just some bullshit someone posted on /sp/. People make these predictions all day and screen cap them so they can act all clairvoyant if they get lucky. Personally I give the "ex NFL employee" about the same credence as the kid who has a Mew cuz his dad works for nintendo.

    likewise for when Hicks was down, there's no excuse for it as much as you want to try and imagine one

    That House guy that filled in for Shields was actually decent. Linebackers were thin though, and that showed. Andy Dalton still gets my WC week "shit the bed" award.

    Something odd that did happen during the weekend, Marshawn Lynch was fined 50k for not speaking to the media throughout the season. Didn't know that was a thing...
