Round 2 : Divisional round

Posted: January 13, 2012 by djplaymaker in NFL

How’s my football fans doing!! I know everyone enjoyed the wild card weekend. We saw the Texans win their 1st ever playoff game, the Saints exploded in the 2nd half vs the Lions, Matt Ryan still can’t win a playoff game as the Giants manhandled the Falcons & of course, Tebow 3:16 says I just burned the Steelers’ ass. We wonder what the divisional round has to offer. I’m so excited to see how the Packers do in their 1st title defense & how the 49ers can do in their play-off debut w/ Jim Harbaugh as their coach. Let’s break it down shall we.


New Orleans vs San Francisco- The Saints head to the Bay for their 2nd play-off after destroying the Lions in the wild card round. The 49ers got two weeks to prepare for their high octane & I like their chances. The reason: they play ball- control football & that defense is one to die for. We can finally also see how the Saints can do when they aren’t in the dome as they have to face a hostile crowd & Harbaugh has turned that culture around. The Saints are 3.5 road faves.

Playmaker: I’m calling my shot- I like the 49ers to win cover the spread. Defense wins titles



Denver vs New England- Tebow mania made it’s debut in the postseason & boy, it made it’s mark in the new overtime rules. How ironic that he passed for 316 yds & had the highest quarterback rating for wild card weekend. They will try to avenge their loss to the Patriots 4 weeks ago. Props to my boy Joe Gaysso aka Jo-Jo Bear, but he thinks Tom Brady hates all the attention that Tebow’s getting. He won’t admit it, but we can see it. Let’s hope this game is close in the final 4 mins. The Pats are 13.5 home faves.

Playmaker: I see Tebow-mania losing it’s glass slipper. I like the Pats, but take the under.




Houston vs Baltimore- The Ravens & Joe Flacco get to host their 1st home play-off in 6 yrs. I think the Steelers losing last week has got them more swagger because they don’t have to face them in the postseason, even though they won the head to head series. The Texans pounded the ball w/ Arian Foster & Andre Johnson looked decent in his play-off. It’s going be a defensive battle & I wonder if the Ravens going to rely on Flacco or feed the little man Ray Rice. The Ravens beat them in week 3 earlier this yr. The Ravens are 7.5 home faves.

Playmaker: I like the Ravens to win & cover the spread.



N.Y. Giants vs Green Bay- The Packers get another crack at the G-man in the divisional round. The Packers needed a last min drive to defeat the Giants in week 13 w/ a fg. The Giants dominated the Falcons last week & Eli’s playing like he’s an elite qb. Like they say, you can’t spell elite w/out saying Eli. Aaron Rodgers aka the “real A-Rod” is looking for his 2nd title, same thing as Eli. The Packers are 7.5 home faves.

Playmaker: This will be the game of the week. I see a high scoring close game. I like the champs to win & cover the spread.



Last week, Noez & Randy both went 3-1 in wild card weekend while I went 1-3. Let’s see how we do this week. Happy b-day shoutouts to Erin Ferrer, Anotoinette Diaz, Milinda Foley, Sheronda Hogue, & Yvette Calzada. By the way, round 1 of Lob City vs Lake Show this Saturday!! Let’s go Lakers. I catch everyone next week for conference title week. Peace
