Amazing what a quarterback looks like that can run a two-minute offense.

I kept thinking... how would Kirk Cousins fare going up against Allen or Mahomes in the playoffs?

For the record, when I make prediction and include comments about teams, it is NOT because I am flip flopping, it is for discussion, and hopefully feedback. I am interested in YOUR thoughts on upcoming games !

I make it VERY clear before game time, the team I have chosen.

Last week Bill said: "Your game picking isn't very good either"

Well for a guy who doesn't pick very well, I got 3 out of 4, despite no easy picks, no blowouts.

CINCY - I liked Cincy because they had a calm QB that wasn't going to be phased by Tennessee coming off a bye. I also thought Henry coming back might be a negative for team chemistry.

PUKE - I guess I could have made money betting the opposite on the game I felt the strongest about, thought it would be fairly easy for the Pack. NGetting several players back may have also disrupted their chemistry, and Rodgers was too concerned about cold enough weather, just like Zimmer talking early in the season about needing the home crowd.

RAMS - Brad and myself thought this was a bad matchup for the Bucs, and I think the Antonio Brown thing disrupted their chemistry, and the injury to Godwin hurt, God didn't want them to win this year, lol. Brady didn't have the same drive he had last year, or he would have had more points in the 1st 3 quarters.

KC - Tough game to call, as Buffalo has almost caught up to KC. Buffalo gets homefield on them next year, and I think they will advance, but there may still be another team in the way, we'll see. KC appeared to have shaken off the SB losers black cloud about mid-season, but they have 2 games to go, to show they can win it again.

This is for discussion, I haven't made my picks for next week yet. I am sitting at 60% right now for the playoffs (6 out of 10), and want to get the last 3 right, with your help.

Cincy is fun to watch, just don't know if they can pull the upset with the Chiefs rolling. If they can stick with the Chiefs in a shootout, and then get a late turnover, they can do it. Seems unlikely. I think it's more likely that if they win, it will be on a last minute catch, similar to Dwight Clark of SF, except it may be someone like Higgins with YAC and a TD.

I will tell you right now, despite my hope for a Cincy upset, I am leaning towards KC.

Another post for discussion:

I would like to see the 49ers upset the Rams, and feel they have a chance.

The Rams made some blunders that let TB back in the game. SF didn't make blunders, seemed well coached and focused. SF beat the Rams in the last game to into the playoffs, so they know they can beat them. If it's close, the Rams could tighten up.

Does the Rams' all stars have the chemistry, or do the 49ers have better chemistry, and maybe confidence because they were just in the SB 2 years ago. Will Stafford blow it with INTs, or does he feel different, like he is in a different place, a good system with McVay, and a heavenly place with nice weather ?

Is McVay's concern about 49er fans packing the stadium like they did the last regular season game, similar to Rodgers wanting very cold weather, or Zimmer wanting lots of crowd noise, a bad sign for the Rams ? Does it show weakness, or that winning isn't in their control ?

I am still leaning Rams, but very slightly. This one feels like Buffalo-KC in that it's hard to call, not because of a shootout, but that it could be a great battle.

Ryans has a chance to solidify the Vikings' HC position this weekend, just beat the Rams one more time.

The 49ers have beat the Rams 6 straight times, you know McVay is going to try some different things, Ryans be able to stop the Rams ?

6 of 12 for the playoffs, sitting at 50%.

It may just be the team I want to win, but I picture the Bengals winning on a late drive, maybe a TD to Chase, but probably more likely a game winning FG.

Cincy 33 Rams 30

6 of 13, something like 46%, a little above my usual 40%, but better than anyone else, considering nobody else put predictions on here throughout the playoffs.

I would have liked to have seen someone post on here, and gotten 80% or even higher, but it gutsy to make predictions, a lot of people are afraid of embarrassment, or being wrong.

So you are the best based on being the only one? OMG.

With that 'logic', you are also the worse.

I myself was too mesmerized by your lack of embarrassment to make predictions.

A real mystery.

There is an adage, goes something like "Tis better to remain silent, and be thought the fool, than to speak, and remove all doubt."

I was hoping to have a little fun with predictions throughout the playoffs, hoping for more participation. Instead, just negative Nellies that would rather criticize than make any predictions themselves.

I will try not to bother you bump on the logs in the future, at least Brad and Ambear had the balls to participate.

Glad the 3 of us could provide a little entertainment for the rest of you.

Let’s see., I picked anyone over GB..wanted Buffalo, gut then jumped into the Cincinnati corner..didn’t want KC, never will.. see Super Bowl IV..

Rooted against Tom Brady, then took rams all the way to the end..

But because I didn’t do all that here with my dick hanging out…

Dan, it would have been pretty cool if you had picked the Rams all the way through and posted it here, you could have done it without having your dick hanging out.

I think the first trade the Vikings will make, will be trading Hunter.

I think they will get just a 2nd for him, and a swap of something like a 4th for a 3rd, and the Vikings get a conditional 2nd or 3rd rounder next year, if he makes the pro bowl for his new team.

I think you keep Hunter.

I think you send Cook to Miami. Hometown guy for them, position easily replaceable for us, Dolphins need weapons.
