NFL Playoffs Day 4 GameThread: Oilers/Colts (10a), Giants/Packers (1:30p)

This can only mean God likes Gisele more than unorthodox quarterbacks. Can you blame him(/her)?

So I got one out of two yesterday. I have no horses in today's races so hey man, go nuts. Vegas says Baltimore and Green Bay, each by about 8 points.

I'm not quite certain but somewhat aware of my presence up in dis bish.

Dusty Baker said...

@RBN

RVP up in dis bish already. But Arsenal better step it up in the 2nd half.

Dusty Baker said...

@RBN

2-1 to these scrubs?? Better put Henry on.

Dusty Baker said...

Oh, wait, this thread was supposed to be for American tackle football. My bad.

Dusty Baker said...

Where my dawgs at?

Hideo Nomo said...

PACKERRRRRRRRRS!

Hideo Nomo said...

Ravens/Texans gets the annual "AFC game Nomo doesn't give a rip about" slot.

Dusty Baker said...

Sadly, embarrassingly, I just now realized what you did with the Oilers/Colts bit, Sax. I warned y'all I wasn't quite 100% in dis bish yet.

Hideo Nomo said...

Isn't it also Oilers/Browns?

Dusty Baker said...

Titans might differ.

Dusty Baker said...

17-3 early on to the Ravens. Never more.

Dusty Baker said...

17-13 now we have a game. That TD drive by Houston was a thing of beauty. Arian Foster is a stud.

Dusty Baker said...

I know this is in your I don't give a shit about this game slot, Nomo, but it's not a bad one after all.

Spank said...

Bawlmer.

Dusty Baker said...

I love how some jackasses will be sitting in the dining area of a restaurant not paying a lick of attention while they're eating. Then as they are leaving they'll stop at the bar telly and suddenly become mesmerized by the game. Often they'll ask what the score is even as the TV screen is displaying the score.

Steve Sax said...

I am so bored

Dusty Baker said...

20-13 Poes.

Dusty Baker said...

This is a good game, Sax!

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I'm still depressed.

Spank said...

That was a horrible pass decision.

Spank said...

My head is pounding like mad. Too much Black Velvet yesterday.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

I can't wait for the Lakers/Mavs game tomorrow.

Steve Sax said...

I can't wait until opening day...

Hideo Nomo said...

Blerg to that drive.

Hideo Nomo said...

I wonder if Vince McMahon has ever considered throwing money at Clay Matthews and AJ Hawk. They seem like a natural tag team, right down to their names.

Hideo Nomo said...

Sunuvabitch.

Dusty Baker said...

Giants dominate early but now Pack is moving the sticks. 10-3 as we near the end of the first.

Aaaaaaand Packers fumble.

Hideo Nomo said...

Sunuvabitch. Wait, oh, ok.

Wait, challenge.

Fuck it.

Hideo Nomo said...

Whew.

Dusty Baker said...

Whew is right. That should have been ruled a fumble.

Dusty Baker said...

Just watched some more reviews. That was definitely a Greg Jennings fumble. You Packers lucked out. Horrible ruling by officials.

Hideo Nomo said...

Eh, I'll take it. As would Giants fans were the roles reversed.

Hideo Nomo said...

Drops.

Hideo Nomo said...

Take a drink when Buck says "All day for Manning."

Dusty Baker said...

He's been saying all day all day.

Another turnover!

Hideo Nomo said...

That's the universe balancing shit out. Not happy, but whatevs.

Hideo Nomo said...

Coulda been worse.

Hideo Nomo said...

Feh.

This is why I was trying to tell Giants fans to quit their bitching.

Dusty Baker said...

That hail mary play was off the charts great. Football fans are being treated to something special this weekend.

Steve Sax said...

20-10 Eli at the half

Hideo Nomo said...

OH SWEET CHRIST.

Dusty Baker said...

Jennings should have caught that for a TD. Pack settle for a FG. 20-13 now.

Dusty Baker said...

20-13 still with ten mins left. Crunch time.

P- I don't mean to imply that I'm doing crunches. I am, however, doing curls.

Dusty Baker said...

Your nuts are probably halfway up your ass about right now, aren't they, Josh?

Dusty Baker said...

45

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

46

Orel said...

More turnovers: Saints or Packers?

Dusty Baker said...

24-13 now after another Packers turnover. This would qualify as a huge upset, right?

Dusty Baker said...

Whoops, sorry, meant 30-13.

Hideo Nomo said...

5+ minutes until I join Marla in ignoring the existence of football.

Dusty Baker said...

Giants playing some of the best prevent defense I've seen. 30-20.

Dusty Baker said...

Discount Double Choke as the Twitters are saying now.

Dusty Baker said...

Now it's time to get hammered and say catty things about actors and actresses attending the Golden Globes.

Hideo Nomo said...

I'll be taking out my aggression in water polo.

Dusty Baker said...

I think Jersey had more of a showing in water polo than did the Packers in their game today.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

@Nomo - Basketball and hockey are fun!

Dusty Baker said...

@Marla

Basketball is not fun! We just lost to the fucking Clippers.

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

The Lakers lost to the Clippers last year too, but nobody gave two shits.

Dusty Baker said...

I did. And I do this year especially because we got beat because of a player who was meant to be on our team. (cries)

Hideo Nomo said...

I'm going back to watching wrestling full-time.

Who ya got winning the Royal Rumble?

Mr. LA Sports Czar said...

"Who ya got winning the Royal Rumble?"

Certainly not the American public.

Hideo Nomo said...

So, which brother-related story will the media be rooting for? Super Harbaughwl or Eli trying to win it all in Peyton's home stadium?

Whatever it is, I'm sure to be bored to tears.

Spank said...

No Golden Globes thread. I'm disappointed with you all.

Dusty Baker said...

I saw a lot of golden globes tonight.
