What We Learned from SB XLV

Superbowl XVL will be remembered for Aaron Rodgers catapulting himself into the upper echelon of NFL Quarterbacks. The Packers beat the Steelers in what I would call a very good but not great game, which is fine by me because not every Superbowl can be great. So, what else did we learn from the Superbowl?

Cutler Tough

Let it be said … I will never question another mans toughness. Especially in a sport like football. However, Jay Cutler quit on his team. Yep, I said it. Jay Cutler let his team down. Several things lead me to this conclusion.

Trent Dilfer said this on the post game show: “When doctors say  you can’t play you have two choices. 1) not to play and 2) to say no I’m gonna fight to the death and battle. I didn’t see any fight in Cutler”.

This is my point exactly. This is the NFC championship game, some teams NEVER make it here and you are just gonna sit there on the sidelines with your hoodie on? .. C’mon son.  If you can walk, you can throw. That defense played too hard against that stellar Green Bay offense for Cutler not to be out there. Again, I wasn’t going to say anything but once I started seeing former athletes call out Cutler on twitter I became more comfortable in assessment.

Derrick Brooks tweeted: @Dbrooks55 -“Lovie Smith job on the line and this Cutler guy sitting, at least let me see you limp,now Collins got hurt look on his face.”

Deion Sanders tweeted: @DeionSanders -“ I’m telling u in the playoffs u must drag me off the field. All the medicine in pro lockerooms this dude comes out! I apologize bear fans!”

I could go on and on and I’m not gonna just crap on Cutler, he helped get his team to the Championship game. Let me end by saying this. Every athlete who desires greatness has a moment and that moment can be either really good or really bad.

Today was Cutler’s moment.

Championship Sunday – I Got Your Winners

SB XLV - Who's going

When the season began 32 teams had their sights set on hosting the Lombardi trophy in Dallas and becoming world champs. This Sunday we take one step closer to finding out who those final two teams will be. Last week I recouped from my dreadful 0-4 wildcard weekend and went 3-1 so ya boy is feeling kinda good. This week I’ve got to go 2-0 and then finish the year strong by picking your Super Bowl winner. Lets go!

Birds Fall from Playoffs

A-Rod could do no wrong in Atlanta

Whoa!! Did y’all see the story about them birds falling from the sky? .. Well, maybe we should have taken it as a prophetic sign because two more teams with bird mascots are knocked out of the playoffs (Ravens, Falcons). The Ravens-Steelers game, or should I say Steelers – Ravens game lived up to all the hype and I believe we will not see a better game from here on out. The physicality, the hate, hard nose defense and last minute heroics – I mean what more can you ask for?

As for the Falcons- Packers game, or should I say the Packers game, the Falcons fans are going to go to sleep and dream about Aaron Rodgers. He went into the Georgia dome screaming with a spear and ready to kill and thats how you have to beat a team like Atlanta at home. Rodgers could do no wrong against a pourus Atlanta defense. To quote A-Rod “It was just one of those nights”.

Congrats to the Steelers and Packers … on to the next round.

Easy’s Divisional Picks

Brady is the man , I got them going to Dallas

 Disclaimer: Save your money though because last week, the kid was 0-4. .. Who knew?

The Saints – Who knew? .. Yea they were away but you can’t tell me 90% of america didn’t pick them.

The Eagles – Who knew? .. Yea this game was a pick em and I picked wrong.

The Colts – Who knew? .. Peyton at home? I took my chances

The Chiefs – Who knew? .. My surprise upset pick, but once Seattle came through on their upset, I knew I was in trouble with this pick.

Ok so here we go, 0 for 4 last week, if I go 4 for 4, I’m back at .500. I’m going with my gut,  no analysis, no breakdown,  no nothing, so here go your winners for this week.
