ATL: Wild Card Weekend 

Post#1 » by FAH1223 » Sun Jan 8, 2017 1:51 am

OAK took the L to the Texans. Shame Carr got hurt.

Lions and Seahawks are scoreless as I type this. Bad 3rd down plays by both teams so far.

I predict 75% of the games will be blowouts.

2 boring games today. I expect Miami/Pittsburgh to be the same.

The Seahawks are still a bunch of jags.

Seahawks seem to benefit from at least 2 extremely bad calls per game. Like super obvious bad calls.

Granted 2 games have already been played and the Steelers are already up 14-0,but I have a feeling these playoffs as a whole are going to be brutal from a boring standpoint.

Packers/Giants and Cowboys/Seahawks in the NFC championship game are going to be the only 2 games worth watching IMO.

I think the Patriots are going to cakewalk to the Super Bowl then destroy whoever comes out of the NFC.

Great start by the Steelers.
60% of the time. It works, every time.

Don't have any ties to San Diego yet I feel devastated for their fans. Can't imagine losing a franchise, particularly one that you've had for nearly 60 years.

Their owner is such a **** turd. He's rubbing it in with that stupid new logo that's basically the dodgers logo with a little triangle on the end of the L to kind of sort of make it look like a lightning bolt, and switching to dodgers blue. So **** lame.

Good for the people of SD to tell the Chargers to **** off. And Spanos is a moron.

I hope this continues the trend of cities refusing to pay for stadiums.

Chargers to play in a 30,000 seat stadium for 2 years? Is the NFL really going to allow that? Damn. Should have just moved the team to Mexico City.

Every time a lame ass uniform/logo is revealed, you just know there were probably 2-3 other cool designs that got overruled by a couple of suits who think they're "with it".

I guess that was their only option. Coliseum already has the Rams and apparently didn't want the Chargers. The Rose Bowl is about an hour north of Carson so that was ruled out because they didn't want their fans from SD to have to drive that far. Of course how many from San Diego ARE going to drive up for games? The new logo sucks too. 30,000 is probably too many seats for them unless they are heavily discounted. My guess is corporations will get a ton of free seats in the hope they will pony up some cash when they move to the new stadium. Raiders to Vegas and Chargers moving north. Hate it.

Teams that will have more fan support in the LA area than the Chargers: Dodgers, Lakers, Clippers, USC, UCLA, Kings, Rams, Angels, Ducks, LA Galaxy, Los Angeles FC, Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders.

Hard to feel bad for a bunch of fair weather fans who live in 80 degree weather year round.

It's more like 70. Extremely comfortable.
