The first field goal that was kicked didnt make it..... but SOMEONE called a time out. Dead


Statistically speaking, icing the kicker doesn't even work. Wasn't a fan of that call either, but ya know after the timeout and seeing the botched kick, Carrol knew the second was gonna go in :| lol

yeah..icing the kicker doesn't work...and you definitely don't do it so late that the kicker get a free "practice" shot...

Calling the timeout so close to the kick is stupid if you asked me. Just call it as soon as they line up so to maximise the time the kicker has to think about the kick but stopping him from having a practice kick.

Packers also need to get a better O-line so Rodgers isn't playing from his back the whole game.
 
No one can doubt the decision to play Kaepernick over Alex Smith now. It's obvious Smith couldn't have played a better game than what Kapernick did. Crabtree finally living up to his expectations, thanks to Kaepernick.

not JUST that but the chemistry between CK and crabtree! it's shtooking AWESOME to watch them play!
it's like another jerry rice and steve young OR montanna!

The 9ers would have to be ecstatic with Crabtree's development. As sad as it is for Alex Smith, the change to CK is the best for the team. I still find it hard to fathom how Smith lost his job initially, Kaepernick obviously must have been doing amzing things behind the scenes at practice etc

Yeah, a guy who plea bargains his way out of murder charges and testifies against his buddies deserves a 2nd ring.    I'm sure the families of Jacinth Baker and Richard Lollar feel Ray Ray deserves another ring, too.

I agree 100%, Ray Lewis should be wearing prison gear.  I wouldn't mind seeing a Patriot ripping Ray's arm right off.

Prison gear, haha, I have had this same visual about Ray for years. It's always like they let him off the cell block to come play the game or something.

I've been surprised over the years of his NFL career that the fact that he literally got away with murder has rarely come up. Nice to see some other people have never forgotten what he got away with or what he actually knows.

we don't have to worry about ray lewis getting another ring...they can't beat the patriots..and even if they do..they can't beat the niners (who i think will beat the falcons). my predictions: Pats vs. 49ers in the SB.

I dont like both the niners and the Falcons, but I really hope the niners win....
Falcons just aren't that good of a team.....so surprised they made it this far....

Their offense is really the only thing going on for them. The main problem they have is being able to close out games. They start out good, but they always seem to do worse in the 4th qtr.  There is just no way they beat SF, that's for damn sure.  49ers look like the clear favorite to win the Superbowl.

ATL had a PRETTY soft season up until now...and even then, you could argue that the seahawks were garbage up until it "counted"

i don't think it will be a cake-walk for the 49ers but i think this is the falcon's one true chance to really test themselves

on that note, we're one step closer to the "master plan", aren't we...RAVENS?

I never believed in the Falcons all season. I couldn't believe that they were winning some of the games that they did. I was also expecting the Seahawks to run a train on them but they proved me wrong. I've been wrong about a lot of things this season but I really hope I'm not wrong about the Falcons. I only see them beating my niners if they have the deep ball working for them. If they can keep the Smith brothers from pressuring Ryan then they might have a chance, but hopefully Justin is ready and they can get the ball rolling on some sacks. I don't see the falcons being able to stop our ground game especially with the read option that was devastating against gb. I think the niners win, not a blow out, but comfortably.

Justin Smith isn't really drawing a double team. It doesn't look like he's 100% but he's still effective. Going with the Niners on this one. I'm okay with either AFC team in the superbowl.

I'd like the Pats or 9ers to win it. Brady to add to his legacy and 9ers because I love watching them play. Much like everyone else I don't know why but the Falcons just don't really appeal to me so not fussed how they go this weekend. Ravens are solid, they'd be great to watch if they can repeat last weeks performance

The only time I remember the Falcons surprised me was their Monday night performance against the Broncos, where they confused Peyton Manning into throwing I think it was 3 picks?

It'd be nice to see a competitive game between the 9ers and Falcons

I'd really like to see a Har-bowl with the brothers coaching against each other, 
but the Pats are such a well oiled machine this time of year that their tough to stop, w/ or w/o Gronkowski.

Well see. The pats still have to face the ravens d and possibly the niners too. The deep threat of torrey smith is also worrying the pats.

Well, after the first game of the year I said the 49ers to win... I guess I'm doing ok in that department.  The 9er falcon game is going to be a good one.

Pats would have won the superbowl last year if welker caught that pass late in the 4th. That was with an ineffective gronk.

They are good but I can't see the Ravens getting past the Pats at this point. I mean they barely beat the Broncos where Peyton choked. But I see it being a Pats/9ers SB where Pats win the whole shabang even without gronk.

I couldn't see the Raven's getting past the Broncos either.  And just because they "barely" got past them, that doesn't mean they can't barely get past the Patriots.  You only need to win by 1 point.

true, but how often do you see Brady choke in the playoffs? Ravens offense was hit or miss throughout the season as opposed to the Pats just seemed to be consistent each week. They just haven't been slowing down at all. Ravens can't rely on those hail mary passes like last week if they want to get to the SB.

I do think it is going to be an SF/NE superbowl though, but I think all 4 teams belong in the conference championship.

Solid argument. The Belichick-Brady combo makes hell to pay for any Playoff opponent. But just as the Ravens barely squeaked by the Broncos, NE didn't look quite as sharp against Hou this go around as they did in their match-up earlier this season. Bal has been playing some inspired 2nd half football this post-season. Gotta imagine if they can keep it close, the 4th quarter will be a hell of a showing. I'll be rooting for Baltimore, (namely cuz I'm bored with NE playoff runs), but I still think NE holds the edge and will take this game.

After Kaep's showing last week.. it's hard to pick against em in ATL. Atl was 30 seconds from being eliminated, but showed some toughness in that field goal drive to win it (though, they showed some idiocy in the ensuing kick off lol). I don't imagine Kaep having quite as stellar of a game against the Falcons, but I'll pick SF anyway.


In other news.... Chip Kelly WILL become the Eagles head coach.  Bad decision? I think so.

I think the Bears messed up by hiring a guy that hasn't been in the NFL for over 8 years.  That's quite a risk.

I think bears messed up by firing Lovie Smith in the first place without having a solid plan and coach waiting on deck.  After that mistake, this guy is just a gamble.  They should have spent their time hiring people who can protect their quarterback and tailback.

After Kaep's showing last week.. it's hard to pick against em in ATL. Atl was 30 seconds from being eliminated, but showed some toughness in that field goal drive to win it (though, they showed some idiocy in the ensuing kick off lol). I don't imagine Kaep having quite as stellar of a game against the Falcons, but I'll pick SF anyway.


In other news.... Chip Kelly WILL become the Eagles head coach.  Bad decision? I think so.

I don't think that Pats need to choke to lose to the Ravens.  Flacco (the 70 yards hail mary that should have never happened aside) has been outperforming that Flacco that you think about when you think Ravens.  I think it should be a good game.

Totally! Flacco's been playin some good ball, too. And certainly has done better in his road games than (like you said) the Flacco that comes to mind when the Ravens are brought into discussion. While I stated my picks already, I don't feel terribly confident in em. Just hoping I get at least one of em right this week. Went 1-3 last week.. YUCK!

I think it's a hilarious joke of a hire! The CFL, Come On?!?! That's where all of the guys who can't cut it in the NFL end up, players & coaches alike. Can't wait for next season to watch the disaster that the bears will be! LOL

Barely?? Maybe I'm seeing things, but wasn't Denver the #1 seed? Baltimore also put up 38 on the number 2 or 3 ranked defense.

If Baltimore special teams had played better, there's 14 pts back. Flacco and Smith just missed on at least 1 other deep ball that would've been a sure touchdown, I think there were 2 missed actually. So that makes for a 21, possibly 28 point swing. If you ask me, Denver "barely" escaped a total stomping... and Peyton had zero to do with any of those situations.

There were lots of things that were screwey in that game... how 'bout the Raven's pick 6 TD... a tip drill because the Bronco reciever was being held and the defender got away with it?  how about how the Ravens were 3rd and long, and the Broncos got a BS pass interference called against them very early in the game?  Change those two plays and you have another 14 point swing.
And Denver's deep coverage getting blown to bits? that was just pathetic. :-/

Trestman has been around and has a decent resume. Just because he isn't coming from one of the storied college programs no one knows about him

I remember when he was the OC for the Niners. And it wasn't great. I hear he won two championships in like the Canadian league or something like that as a HC. He's starting with a good bears team that went 10-6 (I think) but if he's the same guy I remember from the niner days. It won't turn out well. So like I stated above, we're just gonna have to wait and see how it turns out. I doubt he does better than Smith. And he took Rex Grossman to the superbowl.

Yes, it is easy to second guess a choice, but let's be honest, compared to the Chicago Bears organization, we really don't know anything.

Eager to see how it turns out.  Let's go 2013-2014 season!
