Out of the Blue

Last week concluded the NFL regular season, I'm sad to say the Giants will be home watching the playoffs on TV with the rest of us. Here are our week 17 results: Blue 14-2, Mag 13-3 (fixed, sorry), Batman 12-4 (also fixed, and I'm assuming Batman's second pick of the Texans was the Titans), Creston 11-5, Verno and Jivaro 10-6, and Cutter 7-9. Extra props to Batman as the only prognosticator who saw the Bucs beating the Falcons in Atlanta.

I'm running a little behind to tally the regular season results right now, so for the meantime, here are my playoff picks. As much as I've been trying to convince myself this is a terrible idea, I'm going to pick the visiting team in each game.

I think it's time for the Giants to look at replacing some of their defensive coaching staff. The defense finished the season 2nd worse in the NFL. With the talent they have on this team there is really no excuse for it. They had some injuries but so did every other team. I think Fewell and some of his staff needs to go if they can find good replacements.

In spite of the defense's fine run in the playoffs last year, I have a hard time disagreeing. Their approach seemed influenced by believing the hype that the front four could consistently get home without blitzes to the point where it took all season to realize this wasn't true. They blitzed the snot out of Vick in game 16 with obvious success, and I wish they'd gotten more aggressive sooner. Maybe it's time to bring Spags back?
