Their blowout loss to the Patriots showed how out of place the Colts look in the playoff picture. (Clayton)

Except that they would get the 6th seed if the playoffs started today, and they have a cake remaining schedule with the exception of Houston.

The 8-2 Ravens are ranked below two 7-win teams, and I don't have a problem with this.

The AFC has 6 teams with winning records, the NFC has 8, but you have to do an adjustment for the fact that the AFC has the Browns, the Jags, the Chiefs, and the Raiders and another adjustment for the fact that the Vikings and the Buccaneers have winning records, which no one would have predicted.

The perception is in the 7-12 area of the rankings. People seem to think that the

Bengals
Chargers
Titans
Jets
Bills
Dolphins

are worse than the

Buccaneers
Vikings
Saints
Cowboys
Redskins
Lions

I say it's a toss up.

1 through 16, sure the NFC is better, but not overwhelmingly. But who in the NFC couldn't the Texans, Ravens, Patriots, and Broncos match up with? I know the 49ers could match up with anyone, but I have real doubts about the Packers (kill me with fire), the Falcons, the Bears (even with Cutler healthy), and the Giants.

At the bottom, I think the NFC 13-16:

Cards
Rams
Eagles
Panthers

is much better than the AFC 13-16:

Raiders
Browns
Jags
Chefs

but is that really enough to say that the NFC is way, totally, without doubt, better? Not for me.

I don't think they are saying the Colts won't make the playoffs just that they won't last long. I for one am quite impressed with this season compared to last. Luck is just not ready for NFL playoff football.

Your picks just reinforce my point that the bottom half of the NFC is better than the bottom half of the AFC, but the playoff caliber teams are pretty equal. Yes, the NFC is better, but not where it matters.

//Also, it kills me that I have no way to argue against GB losing to NE.

I think your winners are pretty well thought out and accurate, except that I seriously doubt the Raiders would be likely beat the Cards right now (or any other NFC team, for that matter). And I have some doubts about picking the unpredictable Bengals over the unpredictable Bucs, but certainly could see that one going either way. Otherwise, I think your picks are pretty solid.

I don't think any of those top AFC teams are better than their counterparts from the NFC. I think Atlanta and Houston are even. I'd take GB over NE. And in the playoffs, I'd take the Giants over Denver. I'm not going to crown those AFC teams for an OT win against the Jags where Chad Henne sliced and diced their defense, a win over a rookie QB on the road, and beating a team that's given up on its coach and its season.

Nor do I, which is why I said equal.

Watching GB, they are so up and down with one of the worst O-Lines in the league, and with the defense SO banged up, I think they CAN beat anyone, but I still think any team (outside of the bottom 4 in each conference) could win against them.

The Bears are a mess, and i love it.

There were a couple that are honestly tossups. Chicago is graded with Cutler out by the way. I consider that one a tossup with Cutler. Arizona v. Oakland is too, as is Detroit v. Miami.

But to roc sorry can't multi quote on phone, I think the caliber of the conference as a whole matters when discussing one versus the other. And while the playoffs are split, it's pretty much straight NFC below that, and I think SF is the most likely champion over Houston.

Welcome, once again, to the trivia game where the points don't matter, the players don't care, and the questions are oh-so-obscure. This week's edition of Name That Player has a NEW CATEGORY THAT I'M SO SURE YOU'RE ALL REALLY EXCITED ABOUT. You see, everyone has been harping on the referees this week and referring back to the Potato Refs. Well this week is the Revenge of the Zebras - and I don't mean Hochuli is going to come kick each and every one of your asses. Although I bet he could. Now bend over and spell "run", it's ON!

3 Categories, 3 Questions. QBs, Teams, and RULES. Answers go up after everyone has had a chance to answer.

Name that QB

1. Playing on the road is tough - but this player is tougher. This QB has the best QB Rating in Away Games.

2. This QB has lately been getting a lot of media attention, but it isn't for this statistical anomaly. He is the most accurate passer in the 1st Quarter.

3. It wouldn't be Name That Player trivia without some negative stats. This QB leads the league in red zone INTs, with a league high 4 ruined scoring opportunities.


Name That Team

1. This team leads the league in several negative categories, but this one is particularly surprising considering their plan of attack in the previous seasons. This team has run the lowest percentage of running plays in the NFL.

2. Much has been said about this team's ability to run the ball this season, but surprisingly this team is the worst in the NFL at converting 3rd and short with a running play.

3. This team, in spite of being on an uptick as of late, still drags along the bottom of the league in Rushing Yards on 1st Down, meaning that they either need to re-evaluate their playcalling or stop trying to run on 1st down all together.


Name That Call

1. Kicking a safety kick out of bounds is a penalty - but how many penalty yards?

2. This season, there has been a rule change. Illegally kicking a ball on the offense is still a penalty - but what is the punishment?

3. Name these three hilarious looking referee signals, in order.

PENCILS DOWN. As always, make sure you record your score and shove it directly up your exhaust pipe. Don't be afraid to speak up about what you think the answer might be.

I do not disagree that the NFC is better for sure, I am just not "ZOMG TEH NFC IS THE BESTEST EVER". Not saying you are either, it just seems that from a local and national perspective, that is what I'm picking up.

Then again, I am looking to the media to provide a well reasoned, rational analysis rather than a story line and I feel like an idiot just typing that out.
 
2012-11-20 02:53:43 PM  
Speaking of picks...

I don't want to toot my own horn or anything (I tried; not flexible enough), but 12-2 is pretty damn impressive. Given that my only two misses involved AFC East teams not called the New England Patriots somehow managing to win, it's more impressive still. And considering how utterly terrible many of those picks were looking circa 3:30pm Sunday afternoon, well...I'm pleased as punch. A saying that I in no way comprehend, but I'll go along with it anyway because I'm just that pleased.

Oh, and did I mention that the Ravens beat the Steelers for the third straight time? I'm more pleased than punch. Original post here.

Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills:
So last week I nail not only the winning team but the actual final score of the Thursday Night game, while this week the Bills happen to me. Coming into the game dead last against the run, Buffalo held Reggie Bush to just 20 rushing yards, and held Miami as a whole to 60. Tack on a trio of Dolphins turnovers and suddenly...well, the Bills are still 4-6, the Pats are still winning the division, and Ryan Fitzpatrick is still struggling so nothing really changed. The loss does kind of hurt Miami's chances of not finishing last again, though. 0-1


Arizona Cardinals at Atlanta Falcons:
Need proof that Matt Ryan is truly an elite quarterback? Well, who else could win a game while throwing 5 interceptions and not throwing a TD pass? Actually, that feat puts him into pretty good company...the last quarterback to accomplish that in the NFL was some guy named Bart Starr, back in '67. Arizona's soon-to-be ex-coach Ken Wisenhunt benched John Skelton after a 2 of 7 start in favor of rookie Ryan Lindley, who rewarded the decision with a stellar 9/20, 64 yard performance. Tack on three sacks and the Cards wound up with 41 net yards through the air...41. Let's put that into perspective: Chad Farking Henne threw for more yards with a single pass on Sunday. Three times. 1-1

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers:
Cam Newton's stat line against the 32nd-ranked pass defense in the league: 16/29, 252, 1 TD. Not exactly the Best in the World. The Panthers looked very Clevelandesque in blowing a 10-point fourth quarter lead, and eventually lost in overtime to Josh Freeman and the Bucs while giving up 138 rushing yards to the Black Rudy (he doesn't like the "Muscle Hamster" nickname, so I'll go with this one). Oh, Carolina. 2-1

Cleveland Browns at Dallas Cowboys:
Suck (suk): v.intr. 4. Vulgar Slang To be disgustingly disagreeable or offensive, or to require overtime to beat the Cleveland Browns in your home stadium. The Browns have now lost 12 consecutive road games, with their last road win being week 2 of 2011, against the Manningless Indianapolis Colts. The fact that Dallas would require a 17-point fourth quarter just to reach overtime against these guys should be an embarassment on par with dreaming you were naked in class and then waking up to discover you were actually wearing a crotchless pink tutu. That this Cowboys team is somehow now 5-5 is nothing short of miraculous. 3-1

Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions:
Some might consider needing a fourth-quarter comeback against the Lions to be pretty embarrassing as well, but this was a divisional game in Detroit, and a part of what's become a pretty bitter rivalry over the last few years. Not Green Bay's strongest effort, sure, but after a 2-3 start which had many writing them off this season the Packers are right back in the division title chase. 4-1

Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans:
So building off of my uncannily accurate prediction, the LFL team took the '72 Dolphins into overtime before remembering they weren't actually in the same league. What more is there to say here? Matt Schaub ties for the second-highest passing total in NFL history, two wide receivers each go over 200 yards in the same game for the first time in NFL history, and 80 points and more than 1,100 combined yards of offense later the Texans improve to 9-1, while the Jags fall to 1-9. Oh, yeah, and Chad Henne threw for more yards in 3 1/2 quarters of relief than Blaine Gabbert has ever managed in a full game. So...just like everyone figured it would go down. 5-1

Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs:
When the entire football world knows that you're not up to the level of the Cincinnati Bengals, you got problems. It also speaks volumes when Benjarvus Green-Ellis goes over 100 yards for the first time in more than a year against you, and when you only have a quarterback controversy because both starting options suck equally. Someone needs to have Earl Campbell shoot a text in Jamaal Charles' direction, because lord knows he needs to talk to someone who'd understand. 6-1


New York Jets at St. Louis Rams:
Fark you, New York Jets. Seriously...I'm glad I wasn't born a fan of you, because I don't know how anybody could live that way (and I sure as hell don't see how anyone could choose that fate). After losing a heart-breaker to New England and following that up with being dominated by Miami and the Seahawks, you figure it's over. The playoffs aren't in the future, the team has lost whatever focus it had, and traveling to face a younger, hungrier team spelled certain doom. Well, fark you, New York Jets. Oh, and Bilal Powell? Seriously? Fark you, St. Louis Rams, too. 6-2


Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins:
You have to hand it to the Philadelphia Eagles: one of these teams was leaving the stadium in last place of arguably the weakest division in football, and Philly just wanted it more. Four more turnovers (3 by "savior" Nick Foles), 169 yards surrendered on the ground, and as the final cherry on top, they somehow managed to give up 4 touchdown passes to Robert Griffin III. On only 15 pass attempts! 7-2

New Orleans Saints at Oakland Raiders:
All kidding aside, I honestly thought the Raiders would keep this a little closer. We all knew they wouldn't be able to stop Drew Brees through the air, but Oakland's offense has been starting to click and heaven knows the Saints aren't a threat to pitch a shutout anytime soon. Brees and Carson Palmer both went over 3,000 yards in the game, but hats off to Saints' backup Chase Daniel, who completed his first (and only) pass of the season in mop-up duty. Now in his fourth year in the league, Daniel is 7 of 9 for his career (and could probably start for the Chiefs). 8-2

San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos:
There are few things in life more satisfying than watching a dejected Philip Rivers walk off the field as the clock runs down, having just taken his fourth sack of the game. Credit Rivers for even keeping the Chargers in the game at all, though at least in part due to Willis McGahee's injury. I think it's safe for fans in Denver to start making playoff plans now. 9-2

Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots:
So after I make a big deal pointing out that Stevan Ridley has been a better barometer of New England's success this year than Tom Brady, Ridley gets held to 28 yards on 13 attempts and the Pats run up 59 points on Indy. Meanwhile, Andrew Luck had plenty of his namesake in the game...all of it bad, though. Three interceptions and a lost fumble to go along with an absentee defense which led to him putting up 50 passes...well, it's a learning experience, right? 10-2

Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers:
To borrow a line from the Sky Sports postgame commentary, the Pittsburgh Steelers won the first minute of the game, but the Baltimore Ravens won the other 59. It wasn't pretty, Joe Flacco wasn't particularly good, and Ray Rice was completely bottled up on the ground but the Ravens still found a way to win. Pittsburgh, on the other hand, is now one pulled hamstring away from having to suit up Mike Tomlin. 11-2

Chicago Bears at San Francisco 49ers:
I wasn't actually too far off with my final score prediction, but I really expected it to stay tight through the half. In a scenario remarkably similar to last year, the Bears' playoff hopes hinge on the recovery of Jay Cutler...because 14/22, 107, 1 TD & 2 INT just ain't gonna cut it in the long run. Colin Kaepernick just moved up to "add to dictionary" in spell-check status. 12-2
 
2012-11-20 02:57:17 PM  
As a long-time Philadelphia Eagles season ticket holder I assure you that 27th place is at LEAST two spots too high.

The team will finish 3-13 and is a dropped Browns INT, a shady Ravens penalty and a twice-missed Giants field goal as time expired away from heading to 0-16
 
2012-11-20 02:58:11 PM  
I'm a Bears fan, and I can't seriously consider the Bears the best 7-3 team right now, so, this is laughable that they still list the Bears ahead of New England and Denver.

The Bears are not that much better than last years edition, especially without Cutler. I mean, they couldn't beat the Tebow Bronco's last year... you think they'd beat the Manning Broncos?

At best, the Bears are 8th, and honestly I could see them thrown somewhere in the middle of that 9-14th pool. The last two weeks really have exposed how much their record has been propped up by not beating anyone above 15th in the Power Rankings.

Not to untoot your horn, but I have a confidence pool league with 18 people. 6 only missed the NYJ pick, 3 missed BUF and NYJ, 2 missed NYJ and TB, 1 missed NYJ and BAL, 1 missed NYJ and SFO, and 1 missed NYJ and CIN.

No one picked the NYJ/STL game right, but of 18 people only 3 missed more than 1 other game. Just a really weird week.

Football being a game of matchups, the Bears have proven to be horrible against any good D-line, which doesn't look good against any playoff team such as GB, SEA, SF, NYG. Also, the Bears defensive scheme against SF with man coverage was horrible.

1. This team leads the league in several negative categories, but this one is particularly surprising considering their plan of attack in the previous seasons. This team has run the lowest percentage of running plays in the NFL. Chargers?

2. Much has been said about this team's ability to run the ball this season, but surprisingly this team is the worst in the NFL at converting 3rd and short with a running play. Panthers

3. This team, in spite of being on an uptick as of late, still drags along the bottom of the league in Rushing Yards on 1st Down, meaning that they either need to re-evaluate their playcalling or stop trying to run on 1st down all together. Jets


Name That Call

1. Kicking a safety kick out of bounds is a penalty - but how many penalty yards? 15 yards from the spot of the ball going out of bounds

2. This season, there has been a rule change. Illegally kicking a ball on the offense is still a penalty - but what is the punishment? Being traded to the Browns

3. Name these three hilarious looking referee signals, in order.

Illegal forward pass, loss of down, excessive crowd noise (wild guess)

Sorry, but the 49ers should own the #1 spot in beating the holy hell out of "Da Bears" while the Falcons and Texans struggled to beat bad-to-mediocre teams at home.

Treygreen13: roc6783, you got 1 right. Although "Raise the Roof" is pretty close because I don't think anyone will get that one right.


The last one is reset the play clock is it not?

Ravens at 5. They are who we thought they were at the start of the season! (Actually, they might have been 2 or 3, but they've been at 5 for like a month, right?)

Joe Flacco's reaction to the news:

// also his reaction to cashing his game check, the birth of his firstborn son, getting kicked in the nads, T-Sizzle's man-crush on The Concussed Dennis Pitta, and Helen Mirren's sextape

Also two hands behind head is loss of down (or as I call it, sleeping through a play) and hand behind back is illegal forward pass.....which leads to sleeping through a play.

That one is done with one hand, not two. (Unless I'm wrong and it is with two, in which case, I stink)

2 win violation. Should have BEAT the Rams instead of tying at home.

kronicfeld: Their blowout loss to the Patriots showed how out of place the Colts look in the playoff picture. (Clayton)

Except that they would get the 6th seed if the playoffs started today, and they have a cake remaining schedule with the exception of Houston.


They're not saying they can't make the playoffs. They're saying they'll get their asses reamed wide open by the first playoff team they see.

Yeah, the weekly check-ins with parole officers and advanced periodontal disease are bummers.

I was right, 1 hand is the 25 second play clock (after time outs) 2 hands is 40 second (all other times).

so we were both right?

tommyl66, you have 1 and 2/3 correct.
