NFL Playoffs Day 1 Thread: Bengals/Oilers (1.30p), Lions/Saints (5p)

Sam Farmer of the LA Times is picking Bengals over Texans, and in the gladiator arena match, Saints over Lions (which should make Tim Tebow happy). I'm going to be at the Nordstrom after-christmas sale.

Oilers!!! Wait, what?

I've got the Lions beating the spread, but losing the game.

rbnlaw said...

In the mean time, watching FA Cup football.
Shame Macclesfield got the draw. Outplayed Bolton for most of that match, but Bolton's size caught up. Still, they get the chance at Bolton in 10 days time.

Now, up Bristol Rovers! Near where I spent my time in England (side note, Bristol sits at 19th in the League 2 table. Cheltenham Town-where I went to school-sits 3rd)

rbnlaw said...

Heavy sleepers in this bunch.

Spank said...

I'm saving my energy for Stubbs juego.

I gots the Bengals and Lions moving on up.

Steve Sax said...

I got a sweet deal on a pair of slacks.

I didn't realize Andy Dalton was a Klingon. If that's the case, I pick the Bungles to beat the Zombie Oilers. Ain'ts are gonna win, too.

rbnlaw said...

Good game at the planet Hoooston thus far. No one has pledged themselves to Zog.

rbnlaw said...

Roger Gadell, lonliest man in the NFL.

rbnlaw said...

I can see my work here is cut out out for me. Whatever that means.

So many bowl games i almost forgot what a Playoff was! :P

rbnlaw said...

Half time is nap time, bishes.

rbnlaw said...

Go Oily Texans!!

DodgersKings323 said...

Where's that guy who said he liked Bayern Munchen?

Dusty Baker said...

I wasn't sure where to direct my many BBVA Compass Bowl comments. Now they're all built up and I need to release them somewhere.

Dusty Baker said...

@Spank

You got Lions over Saints? Interesting.

Spank said...

Lions Baby!

Somebody has too.

DodgersKings323 said...

Daanngg sucks to be that guy, dropped Pick 6 to being down by 2 TD......aaaannddd why not?? Why not go up to Baltimore and move on to the AFCC? Good running game, good defense, BAL has been up and down, TJ just has to manage the game.

Steve Sax said...

Somewhere, Carson Palmer laughs

DodgersKings323 said...

That could have been the LA expansion team winning their first playoff game

*cries*

rbnlaw said...

I'm with Spanktopus. Go Lions!

OchoQuatro!

rbnlaw said...

@dusty who's playing/winning that compass bowl thingy?

rbnlaw said...

Just double checked. 10.5 point spread is reeedickulous for Deetroyt Rock City.

rbnlaw said...

Oily Texans advance. Rbn 1 for 1 in picks.
Look out Ain'ts.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Molly Knight roots for the Lions.

Spank said...

TEBOW!

Dusty Baker said...

@RBN re compass bowl:

One might say Pitt headed south

rbnlaw said...

My friend says he got Tebowed on NYE. I corrected him to say he Tebowed his wife.

Spank said...

'Aint no D.

rbnlaw said...

DB, so there was a game. Huh.

rbnlaw said...

Touchdown Deeeetroyt!

Dusty Baker said...

Fumble New Orleans!

Spank said...

Vilma Flintstone

Spank said...

Let's go Detwat!

DodgersKings323 said...

Who dat nation in the house?
Dang i didn't believe the Lions had a chance but i guess this guy was onto something, though they did say Suh didn't play in the last game and the Saints are down a WR.

Dusty Baker said...

De twat! De twat!

-- Tatoo

Dusty Baker said...

I thought Saints were really peaking at the right time and had a lot of offensive weapons. Which is true on both accounts. But put on the upset meter.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

RADJAHS! DISCOUNT DOUBLE-CHECK!

Dusty Baker said...

TD Saints! Shit is on. Wish I could actually watch' Mrs. Dusty has the remote.

And god knows I'm not going to actually get up and go to the other TV.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The game is streaming on NBCSports.com.

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks, MLASC. I actually tried that but the server seems to be pretty overloaded thus the video is choppy. I'm about 6 feet from my tricked out wifi on some smoking hot broadband, and it's still not giving me enough. I'll bet they're having a lot of people tuning in via the internet.

Spank said...

TEBOW!

Spank said...

That was a nice pass actually.

Dusty Baker said...

Come on Saints, D up!

Spank said...

Tackle the mofo, mofos.

Spank said...

Fumble!

Spank said...

Tied 14-14

Spank said...

pretty soon the defenders won't be able to even look at the receivers without getting flagged for a penalty. Jesus Christ.

Spank said...

Not tied yet.

Spank said...

My bad

Spank said...

14-10 Detwat at the half. Damn i want some booze.

Fernie V said...

I don't like the lions coach and I don't know why.

Spank said...

What we need here is a classic Brees INT.

Steve Sax said...

Wow, this GT is getting me excited for Spring Training again.

Go SoSGers!

Steve Sax said...

Fulham 4-0 over Charlton Athletic in the FA Cup

Spank said...

Looks like I crapped out on my picks. Same old Spank.

Steve Sax said...

@DK323: smoking is bad for your health

Steve Sax said...

Texans and Saints it is. On to Day 2.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

Health is bad for your smoking.

Steve Sax said...

Heath is bad for your Redskins.

Dusty Baker said...

Heat is bad for your foreskin.
