The final 4!! Which 2 will punch their to Super Bowl 50 #conferencetitleweekend

      And then there were 4! Yes, we are getting down to the nitty, gritty. It’s the conference championship game weekend & we have the top 2 seeds in each conference remaining, only 1 team can punch their ticket to the big game in Santa Clara in 2 weeks. Last week’s game saw the Chiefs having no pressure to get to Brady in the Pats’ win, the Packers/Cards game was an instant classic from the hail mary, failed flipped coin toss to the winning td, Carolina scoring 31 1st half its & having to hold a late Seahawks 2nd half rally, & the Broncos defense having to save the team in their win over the Steelers. Which 2 teams have what it takes to call themselves conference champs? We’ll find out  who have those bragging rights starting on Sunday


2) New England vs 1) Denver- For the 17th time in their career, Tom Brady vs Peyton Manning.  Brady owns the match-up 11-5, but Manning’s 2-1 in the last 3 match-ups. The Broncos had to grind it out, overcoming a Steelers defense & poor 1st half executions to win that game. For the Pats, everything was clicking like clockwork in their game vs the Chiefs. Brady had all the time in the world find his targets (mostly Edeleman & Gronk). However, they will be facing a Broncos defense who was the top rated defense in less points avg, & yards per game. Which Manning will show up for this game. It may come to if the Broncos can rattle Brady. The Pats are a fg road fave. I like the Pats by a td.




2)Arizona vs 1) Carolina- For the 1st time ever, 2 former Heisman trophy winners get to face off in the conference title game. The Panthers jumped on the Seahawks early in the 1st half, then had to hold them off in the 2nd half to preserve the win. Cam even admitted they were butt tight about almost blowing the game. They probably won’t have Jared Allen available for the game because he suffered a fracture in his foot. however they will have Jonathan Stewart ready. For the Cards, what a game by Larry Fitzgerald last week. It’s like he went into the fountain of youth & rejuvenated his self. His catch & run from the 1st possession in overtime set up his winning score. Even though Carson Palmer looked a lil scared & conservative last week & his 2nd career playoff appearance, he did what he had to do to get his 1st playoff win. This is a rematch of last yr’s wild card game in which the Panthers won 27-14 against a Cardinals team who had to rely on their 3rd string qb Ryan Lindley when both Palmer & his back-up Drew Stanton were banged up. Can the Panthers keep their foot on the pedal if they have a big lead on the Cards? The Panthers are a fg home fave. I like the Panthers to win & cover the spread.



Last week, yours truly & Randy were the only ones to get all 4 games right to finish at 4-0 while Noez went 1-3. In the overall standings, randy holds a comfortable lead at 164-99 while yours truly is looking up at 155-108 & noes rounds out at 137-113. Hope everyone had a safe MLK weekend. Happy belated b-day shootouts to Nick Gumina & Veronica Nolasco. Happy b-day shootouts this week to Angelika Cuahutle Gad, Candace Jacqueline, Sonia Estrella, the homie Dee Jay Seize, Jessica Canas Carrillo, Robert Delgado, Christina Sue Anthony, Joe Heaven Salazr( see you on Saturday), Anita Montes, Patricia Molina, & Sefa Pumphrey. Before I go, gotta send prayers to my extended family the Lay sisters (Desiree, Sandra, & Raquel) for the passing of their father Jimmy Lay & my buddy Anthony Beltran, who also lost his father last week. Rest in peace to both of them & I’ll catch everyone on the next blog. Peace!!
