NFL Super Bowl 47 Review: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly


Well, February 3, 2013, which was Super Bowl Sunday, has come and gone. The NFL 2012/13 season is over. That means it is the beginning of the off-season where trades, releases, and mock drafts begin. It also means that we NFL fans have to wait about six months for the new season to start, so let’s start tuning into hockey, the NBA, or MLB.

For me, I am starting to get Derby Fever. I will be watching all the Kentucky Derby prep races, and waiting patiently for Paynter to make his first start as a four year old. Is it the first Saturday in May yet?

Anyway, back to Super Bowl Sunday, where in the Super Dome in New Orleans, LA, Beyonce performed a half-time show at the Super Bowl, and reunited her former group, Destiny’s Child. During breaks in the game, there were plenty of those Super expensive Super Bowl ads, here to read more , , , , , , , , , , ,

NFL Super Bowl 47 Recap and Thoughts: Inside The Wheelhouse


Let’s take a look back at some of the things that stood out from Super Bowl 47 in my final edition of the 2012-2013 NFL weekly thoughts blog here at the CCB!

- The 2012-2013 NFL season has been a lot of fun to cover this season (with the exception of a “Super Storm” interruption in late-October/early-November) as I looked forward to recapping the games here on the CCB every week. The National Football league once again has proven why it is the very best sport in the world right now after delivering on another exciting Super Bowl finish. I’m already looking forward for September to come back around so I can enjoy Football yet again!

– There are two reasons why San Francisco is not Super Bowl 47 Champions right now. First off you can’t consistently play from behind in a playoff atmosphere. A veteran team like Baltimore won’t let you here to read more , , , , , , , , , , ,

NFL Super Bowl XLVII Prediction and Preview


I want to start this blog by saying thank you to my readers for reading my NFL blogs throughout the 2012-13 NFL season. I have enjoyed the NFL season, and I have enjoyed writing about the games, and some of the controversies. I also thank my editor, Eric Gargiulo, for giving me the platform to speak my mind.

Now that I have gotten that out of the way, the NFL 2012-13 season and post-season ends this Sunday on February 3rd. We are finally at the Super Dome in New Orleans, LA. The biggest game, the one game that all 32 teams want to play in and win, the Super Bowl, will be played.

The two teams that are going for the Lombardi trophy are the San Fransisco 49ers for the NFC, and the Baltimore Ravens for the AFC. The two teams are now preparing for the Super Bowl, and are taking part here to read more , , , , , , , , ,

NFL Super Bowl 47 Predictions and Preview: Inside The Wheelhouse


The final game of the 2012 NFL season is finally upon us as Super Bowl 47 is finally here. Two teams remain as the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers and the AFC Champion Baltimore Ravens will battle it out for the Vince Lombardi trophy this Super Bowl Sunday. Two brothers will make history as for the first time ever it will be an all-Family bowl edition of the greatest sports game of the year. With that being said here is the preview & predictions for Super Bowl 47:

Super Bowl 47:

Baltimore Ravens vs. San Francisco 49ers

In recent years it hasn’t been this difficult to predict who will win the Super Bowl like it has been this year. Both of these teams certainly have their strength’s and weaknesses to make a strong case to be crowned Super Bowl Champions for the 2012 NFL season. Let’s take a look at each team this here to read more , , , , , , , , ,

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 , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Mile High Expectations


More than 48 hours after the Denver Broncos hit a Rocky Mountain Low, the Broncos and their faithful are still trying to shake off the cobwebs after being blindsided by the upset the Baltimore Ravens pulled off Saturday in double overtime at Sports Authority Field.

After the game, fans and media members had many questions as to how this monumental collapse, hiccup, choke or however you wanted to label it happened to what seemed like a dominant and complete Denver Broncos team. The offseason acquisition of Peyton Manning in what was the equivalent of winning the free agency Powerball set the stage for the organization and fans alike to expect an improvement to a club that went 8-8 and won a home playoff game with Tim Tebow at quarterback. Surely having a future hall of famer, a SuperBowl winner and arguably one of the greatest quarterbacks to play the game behind 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 , , , , , , , , , , ,
