NFL 2012-13 Post Season Championship Sunday Review


On January 20, 2013, the NFC Championship Game (San Fransisco 49ers at the Atlanta Falcons), and the AFC Championship Game (Baltimore Ravens at the New England Patriots) have been played. The NFC and AFC representatives for Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans on February 3, 2013 have been decided.

The two teams going for all the marbles are the San Fransisco 49ers for the NFC, and the Baltimore Ravens for the AFC. We NFL fans will be treated to, or bored by (depending on ones point of view) the “Harbaugh Bowl,” as the 49ers head coach is Jim Harbaugh, and his brother, John Harbaugh, is the head coach for the Ravens.

Aside from this, for two whole weeks, the talking heads at ESPN and NFL Network will be heaping praise on the (thankfully) soon to be retiring MLB Ray Lewis of the Ravens. Fans will be subjected to a two week retirement here to read more , , , , , , , , ,

AFC and NFC Championship Games Recap and Thoughts: Inside The Wheelhouse


Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from the Championship Round in the National Football League playoffs!

- I’ve said it all season long and I’ll say it one more time since they are the NFC Champions: San Francisco is the most complete team in the NFL this season. Offensively and defensively they get it done. The Niners dealt with a great deal of adversity in the NFC Championship Game and overcame it to comeback & win the game; San Francisco deserves to be playing in Super Bowl 47.

– Heartbreaking loss for the Atlanta Falcons as the game was in their control for a good percentage of it. Silver lining in this is if Atlanta were to win the NFC Championship they may have gone into Super Bowl 47 without Matt Ryan. This season was a step in the right direction for Atlanta and now here to read more , , , , , , , , , , ,

AFC & NFC Championship Games Predictions & Preview: Inside The Wheelhouse


It’s the final four of the NFL with a spot in Super Bowl 47 on the line. This is what these four teams have worked for all season long and now their dreams can become a reality should they get the big victory this Sunday. We are one step closer to New Orleans and Super Bowl 47 but before we get there we must preview the upcoming AFC & NFC Championship Games for this Sunday:

AFC Championship Game:

(2) New England Patriots vs. (4) Baltimore Ravens

It’s a rematch of the 2011 AFC Championship Game as the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens meet once again at Gillette Stadium with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. This will obviously be Baltimore’s chance to avenge last year’s tough loss to New England and it will be the Patriots chance to prove once again that they “own” the Baltimore Ravens. here to read more , , , , , , , , , ,

AFC & NFC Championship Games Picks & Preview


My fellow NFL fans, we are almost there. The Super Bowl in New Orleans on February 3rd is almost here, and there is light at the end of the tunnel. On that day, the NFL will crown a new Super Bowl Champion in Super Bowl XLVII.

That being said, this Sunday, January 20, 2013, besides the date being KISS lead singer/rhythm guitarist Paul Stanley’s 61st birthday, there will be two Conference Championship games to determine the participants in the Super Bowl. One game will determine the AFC representative, and the other will determine the NFC Representative.

Of course, one of those teams will be “rocking and rolling all night, and partying every day” in the Big Easy after battling each other for the proverbial 60 minutes. The vanquished team will hit “rock bottom,” as the birthday boy, Paul Stanley would say.

Championship Sunday starts with the (2) San Fransisco 49ers coming into the Georgia here to read more , , , , , , , , , ,

NFL 2012-13 Divisional Playoffs Review & Commentary


Well, my readers, the NFL Divisional round games for the 2012-13 post season are in the books. The weekend’s games were much better than the previous weekend’s Wild Card games by a mile. There were a lot of great plays, and the games were pretty high scoring games. Of course, there as a little drama as well.

I watched the games on Saturday, January 12, between the Denver Broncos vs the Baltimore Ravens, and the San Fransisco 49ers vs the Green Bay Packers in their entirety. On Sunday, January 13, however, due to illness, I only was able to watch the first quarter of the game Atlanta Falcons vs the Seattle Seahawks, and the last 5 minutes of the New England Patriots vs the Houston Texans.

That being said, I saw enough of the highlights of both the Falcons and the Patriots games to make this particular blog a general commentary on here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

NFL Divisional Playoffs Thoughts & Recap – Inside The Wheelhouse


Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from the Divisional Round in the National Football League playoffs!

– I had my doubts about the Baltimore Ravens but it certainly appears that they are “peaking” just at the right time heading into the AFC Championship Game this week. Joe Flacco really stepped up for the offense when the defense needed his help against Denver and is flashing signs of him being a top NFL quarterback. There is still a lot of work to be done but for Flacco to carry the offense the way he did versus Denver will be a career highlight. Now he needs to finally get that AFC Championship Game victory.

- Disappointing “one and done” exit for the #1 seed Denver Broncos in the Divisional Round. I was skeptical about this team based off of their weak schedule at first but eventually hopped here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

NFL 2012-13 Divisional round picks & preview


Well, last week’s playoffs games gave NFL fans a couple of things. One was a huge reason to NOT expand the playoffs to more teams. I mean, with the exception of that Green Bay/Vikings game, the quality of the other three ranked from horrid to barely passable.

The other thing NFL fans got was a lot of drama, from Ray Lewis’s drawn out retirement to the debate over whether Robert Griffin III should have stayed in the game due to his knee being in poor condition. I just hope that Griffin’s career is not compromised, and the upcoming games this weekend are a lot better.

That being said, let’s examine this weekend’s games. These are the Divisional Round Games. The winners advance to their respective conference’s Championship Game. On the NFC side, it is the Green Bay Packers taking on the San Fransisco 49er’s on Saturday, and the Seattle Seahawks taking on here to read more , , , , , , , , , , ,

NFL Divisional round preview & predictions – Inside The Wheelhouse


The 2012 NFL season is now down to just 8 remaining teams, all whom are vying for a spot in their conference’s championship game. But for that to happen they must beat their opponent in the NFL Divisional Round this Saturday and Sunday. When the dust settles there will be just 4 teams that remain with a spot in Super Bowl 47 that much closer. Let’s take a look at this weekend’s NFL Divisional round games:


(1) Denver Broncos vs. (4) Baltimore Ravens

If you enjoy “old school” NFL football than this game is for you. If you are looking for an “offensive explosion” of a game than don’t even bother to tune into this game because that’s not what you are going to get. The Broncos and Ravens have two of the most impressive defensive unit’s in all of Football and you are going to get these defenses to play on here to read more , , , , , , , , , , ,

NFL Week 17 Thoughts & Recap – Inside The Wheelhouse


Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 17 in the National Football League!

– Tampa Bay closes out the 2012 regular season with a nice win against a not-so-competitive Atlanta Falcons team in Week 17. I’ve said it all season long and it’s only fitting that I say it again, Tampa is a good team and one that people should look out for in 2013. Really like what they accomplished this season, would’ve loved to seen them compete for a playoff spot in the final weeks.

- Not the way Atlanta wanted to end the regular season I’m sure but now they can look towards the playoffs and hope that the defensive injuries they suffered on Sunday aren’t that bad. Not sure what to think of this Falcons team heading into the playoffs but I’ll tell you this much, they don’t look like a here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

NFL Week 16 Thoughts & Recap – Inside The Wheelhouse


Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 16 in the National Football League!

– Congrats to the Falcons on clinching the #1 seed in the NFC and having home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. Personally, I believe while it’s a tremendous feat, they may be the weakest #1 seed in the NFL playoffs in some time. Their passing offense is great but their run game and defense can be shaky depending on the week. Let’s see if the ATL can make me eat my words yet again this season.

- Congrats to Calvin Johnson on breaking Jerry Rice’s single-season receiving record! Can we now say that the “Madden Curse” is done?

– Quietly, the Green Bay Packers are continuing to emerge in the NFC. While it is the Titans, they kept the momentum going throughout this one. Things are getting interesting for the Pack…

NFL Week 14 Thoughts & Recap – Inside The Wheelhouse


Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 14 in the National Football League!

– Nice win for the Broncos on Thursday Night as they continue to play like the hottest team in the NFL. Only issue is their schedule is extremely weak, I wonder how much it will affect them come playoff time.

- Why don’t the Raiders just start Terrelle Pryor already? What do you have to lose at this point?

– I really have enjoyed how this St. Louis Rams team has played these last couple of weeks. If they can continue to finish this season strong they will become a nice threat in the NFC West next season. Only concern I continue to have with this team is whether or not Sam Bradford is the true answer at quarterback.

– Heartbreaking loss for the Bills in Week 14. I would assume the loss here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

NFL Week 13 Thoughts & Recap – Inside The Wheelhouse


Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Week 13 in the National Football League!

- Great win for the Atlanta Falcons in primetime as they improve to 11-1 on the season. I have been very critical of the Falcons ability against good teams all season and they proved in back-to-back weeks they can pull it off. Now they just need to show up come playoff time…

– Say what you will about the New Orleans Saints but they gave it a pretty valiant effort these last couple of weeks. It will take a miracle for them to be playoff bound in 2012 as they get their 7th loss of the season here in Week 13. I wonder if the “Sean Payton magic” will be able to get this team back where they typically are in 2013, obviously if Payton returns.

– I’m sure many Buffalo Bills here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
