What We Learned From the NFL Divisional Round and What It Means For the Conference Championships

It’s no secret the NFL is king in America, and nothing proves it quite like Conference Championship Sunday.  It’s like this:  If you live in the Eastern Time Zone like J-Dub, the games are on at 3 and 6:30 p.m.  If you live in the Central Time Zone like Meehan, they air at 2 and 5:30.  What that means is that the NFL basically doesn’t give a fuck about you eating dinner.  They know no matter what your usual schedule is, you’re going to break it, and you’re going to do so with a bigger smile on your face than a lonely guy who just got mailed a Viagra sample and a free weekend of Cinemax.

Kommissar Goodell and the rest of the NFL Politburo know that, and that’s why they schedule these games making sure that 80% of the U.S. population has to choose between football and feeding themselves. Do you think it is a coincidence that one of the league’s biggest stars spends his time hawking those tomato-sauce herpes discs Papa John’s flings?  Face it, the people who think that shit is good pizza are…well…the people who think that shit is good pizza.

What We Learned From Wild-Card Weekend and What It Means For the Divisional Round

By J-Dub and Meehan

Before you run off to bet this weekend’s NFL playoffs games, you may want to consider what happened last week, as there are some crucial lessons to be learned.

1) Colts 45, Chiefs 44

For some reason, even when the Colts were looking up at a four touchdown deficit, we both knew that Kansas City was going to blow it. The problem with having a team that calls plays that conservatively is that when you need them to change the pace of the game, they just can’t fucking do it.  That’s sound a bit crazy to say about a team which hung 44 points on the board,  but the fact remains that’s what killed the Chiefs in the end.

As we promised in last week’s What We Learned piece, it is time for us here at Sports Blog Movement to breakdown this play-off season, because like we always say, there’s a ton of stuff you need to know that the usual suspects in the sports media will miss while they are busy lapping Peyton Manning’s spooge off a locker-room floor. Having said that, let’s break this down by conference.

What We Learned From Week 16 of the 2013 NFL Season: The Coaches’ Death Watch Edition

Sword of Damocles

By J-Dub and Meehan

This will be our  last regular-season weekly breakdown; by this time next week, all the play-off matches will be set, and that means the time for looking back is as gone as that stuff Marv Albert used to call hair. Play-off predictions aside, there’s another thing that will start happening, and it may not even wait until next week.  It’s the time of year when NFL start getting clipped at a rate faster than mob informants.  Gary Kubiak was the first, but he sure as shit won’t be the last. That’s why we are here to run down the most likely candidates to face the Sword of Damocles over the next few days.

1) Mike Shanahan – Washington Redskins

Mmmmmmm...Arby's Sauce.

What We Learned From Week 15 of the 2013 NFL Season: Truth or Lie Edition, Part III

truth

By J-Dub and Meehan

As we have been doing all season, we are breaking down things that you need to know as we head into the play-offs. As we get closer, that means that issues with team get more magnified. That also means that a lot of assumptions that have been held about the teams who are still play-off contenders become true or get exposed as just another pack of lies. So, without any further adieu, here are this week’s questions…

1) Truth or Lie: The Philadelphia Eagles Defense is a joke.

We Say: Truth

They allowed 29 First downs and almost 50 points against a Minnesota Vikings team with no Adrian Peterson and they made Matt Cassel look like the second coming of Fran Tarkenton. As brilliant as Nick Foles and the offense have been, the defense has been the exact inverse.
