Out of the Blue

Well, the super-crazy football games yesterday certainly lived up to the advance billing. Today's first game is already in progress, and so far doesn't look as compelling, but if there's anything close to a comeback in that one, it will be another for the ages. I do love the playoffs.

Only 4 of 22 people had Denver in the SB.

Hard to believe NE misses out on OT because of a missed extra point when the kicker hadn't missed one, I think it was something like (didn't actually write the stat down), since 2007.

Weird brain short circuit there... never mind.

Any score is now achievable (4 points would just be 2 safeties). You can even score 1 point now on a 2pt conversion run back for a TD, but you can't technically have a score lower than either 2-2 or 6-1 (because the 1 requires a TD be scored first). 7-1 sticks out as an impossible score as well.

I did laugh when I saw the 4 tie-breaker, I figured he just missed the box.

I don't like my chances to close out the pool at all. I only picked Denver because I'm a Jets fan and couldn't willfully put NE in the superbowl. Both games this weekend should continue to impress, good luck everyone.

It will be you and me on the tie break if this happens. You have 48 points, I have 49....

That tie-breaker certainly caused confusion. I saw one pick was 4. Besides being maybe a little on the low side, it's actually one of only two scores that are not possible (the other being one). Not sure why they offer invalid options.

Anyway, good luck to those still in the running.

So, if Carolina defeats Denver in the big one, descender wins the pool.
If Carolina defeats New England, then Pigeon wins the matrix.
If Arizona defeats Denver, then magpotato wins the matrix pool.
Only if Arizona defeats New England in the big game do I have a chance. Fun couple of weeks ahead.

Seattle Carolina game was tough to watch in the first half but really exciting in the second. Was worried it was going to be a snoozer shutout.

The only really bad part about the game was Cam Newton waffling between tantrum throwing and being a smug douchebag. The best part was one of his tantrums accidentally getting caught on audio.

"I CANT KEEP MY FUCKING COOL..." -Cam Newton (Link for anyone who missed it.)

It's pretty clear he was told to keep it together earlier by the coach and his response was "I can't keep my fucking cool when ..." and he turns to reference something happening out on the field.

Well at least the Shithawks are gone. Fuck you Russel, where's your god now? So I don't really care who wins at this point so long as it's not the Cheatriots either. I'm pulling for the Panthers or the Cards at this point. It's good to have new blood win every now and then.
