NFL Conference Championships
« on: January 19, 2014, 06:41:50 PM »
I must be the only one watching football again this weekend....

Well, Denver kicked New England's asses today so Peyton gets another shot at a Superbowl, and in Eli's stadium to boot!

The Seahawks are about to kick off against the 49ers in Seattle, and if you feel the ground shaking where you are, that's the 12th Man in Seattle......

I may have to go watch upstairs.  My husband is screaming at the TV and it's only the first five minutes of the game.

I wish I had a dime for very "Omaha!"  Ol' Peyton really had the Pats stymied.

I'm thinking it actually has no meaning whatsoever, just a filler word that he picked out for some reason.

OMAHA !!!!!! 


Not only is Peyton Manning heading to his third Super Bowl, he made $24,800 for his charity during the AFC Championship Game. Eight businesses will donate the money to Manning's Peyback Foundation after they committed to donate a combined $800 for each time he said the word "Omaha" at the line of scrimmage. Manning said "Omaha" 31 times during Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.

I hope Omaha Insurance is buying some Super Bowl spots. 

Take advantage of this opportunity.  It's priceless.

Marshawn Lynch...

One of my friends was telling me that the NFL fined him $50,000 for refusing to give interviews, which is part of his contract.  He is a rough customer...native of the 'hood in Oakland with a personality like a bent shitcan.  Someone asked him what he though about NFL players and disciplinary problems on and off the field and he said something to the effect of "You give a 20 year old kid from the hood 20 million dollars, and what the &*%# do you expect him to do?"

But what a runner...Seattle just isn't at all hesitant to run him right down San Fran's throat every single time, and eventually he wears 'em down and punches a hole in the defense...

What a guy....

Whew!  The defense came through.  They'd better tighten it up before they meet Denver, though!

All the media talk about Wilson not able to throw 200 Yard games, and Lynch having a tough time getting 100 yards was shot to hell in one game.  love seeing all these so-called experts looking like fools.


Wilson   16/25   215 Yards

Kaepernick  14/24  153


Lynch   109 Yards

Gore  14 Yards

Fireworks going off in my neighborhood still. The Seahawks training camp is just down the hill from us, so this win feels so very close to home. 

 That game was the epic battle of the day if not the year.

The Seattle/SF game was a great one, but methinks the 'Niners were robbed by the refs, who called for the homies all night.  When two teams are this evenly matched, the refs can make the difference in the game, and the failure to call roughing the kicker may well have cost the 49ers the championship.  It wasn't the only instance of home field officiating in this game, unfortunately.  It went on throughout the game, and it was a shame to see.  You expect the fans to be against you -- the twelfth man -- but the refs made 13 and that was just too much for SF to overcome.  I think anyone who saw the game would have to admit the 49ers played a better game of football than the Seahawks.

On the other hand, the Seahawks  earned their home field advantage, and that was, in the end, the deciding factor.

I gotta agree with you about the Refs.  There is no excuse for those kinds of calls, especially during the playoffs, and even more especially during a Conference championship game with two teams as closely matched as these two were.  One would think the NFL would ensure their "A" Team was on hand to call these games but apparently not.
