NFL PLAYOFFS 2019 SEASON

There are four games on the schedule this weekend. Two on Saturday, two on Sunday. For those of you looking to comment on the Pearson v. Rundle State Attorney Race, scroll on down and join the debate on why the State Attorney refuses to seek justice and 100% defers to victims on plea offers and sentencing recommendations. 

Saturdays Games

The intrepid Minnesota Vikings are on the road again. Having shocked the world and defeated the Saints in New Orleans, Minny is in San Fran to face the fearsome 49ers. Nice knowing ya Vikes
The 49ers are all healed up on D- Dee Ford their edge rusher and Jaquiski Tartt (no relation to Donna the writer we assume) at safety are rested and ready to go. With Richard Sherman roaming the secondary,  and Nick Bosa and his line mates pinning their ear backs and going after the QB, we once again don't see much hope for the Vikings winning on the road. Just like last week.  Take San Fran -7  (WIN) and over 44.5. (just missed) We are going to eat our words from last week in which we wrote that "the next time Vikings QB Cousins wins a big game will be the first time." Giving credit where credit is due, Cousins stepped by against the Saints and delivered. Well done, and now this week- what have you done for me lately? Pressure is on. Again. 


Tennessee at Baltimore, The game of the weekend. You like teams that can run the rock? Teams that are well coached on D? Teams with resurgent QB's? Then you have come to the right game. We love Tennessee and their coach and the way they punked the Evil Genius and the Cheaters last week. But The Ravens are the class of the league right now. Is ten points too much to give? Oh this is hard but we are going to say no. Ravens will win, but not by ten. Take the ten and Tenny (BIG WIN) and over 46.6.(small loss). 


Sundays Games 

Texans at KC. Let's play word association. Patrick Mahomes. Tyrann Mathieu. Andy Reid. Win, win and win. Texans are underperformers with outsized talent. This game will not be close. Take KC and give the ten and over 51. (WIN the over was over by mid third quarter)

Seahawks at Packers. Another great game.  The weather  should be cold and clear after a snow storm moves through Saturday night. Could Seattle win this game? Yes, if the first 34 RBs on the roster weren't injured and they are down to getting Franco Harris back into uniform ("wait" you say. "Rumpole, wasn't Franco a Steeler?" "Yes" we reply, "but he finished his career with one year in Seattle", and we know that because we are the professionals here and you readers expect such wit and wisdom.). 
Packers are giving up 4.5, They are home. They have Aaron Rodgers. It is cold out. They have their RB ready to go and it's Packer weather. Green Bay -4.5 under 47.

Love the Harris/Seattle angle. You could close many a bar by coming up with players who are historically associated with one team but played for another. Think Unitas/San Diego, Ron Santo/White Sox, Warren Spahn/SF Giants, Joe Namath/LA Rams, Jerry Rice/Raiders, Seahawks. I am sure there are a thousand others but fun to play.

Thanks. Joe Montana -KC Chiefs.

Wanna go baseball? Even more fun. Say Hey Willie Mays and the NY Mets.
Tom Seaver- Cincinnati Reds.

I remember when Mays went to the Mets. The NY press treated it as a “return home” thus making his time in SF as an aberration rather than an answer to a future trivia question. And while swinging on the baseball vine, Harmon Killebrew did one season with the KC Royals.
