O for 5 nfl and georgia mixes it up

O for 5 nfl and georgia mixes it up

Merry Christmas! I hope you all enjoy the holiday season and I thank you for your loyal following.

First off in regards to the NFL. If the Falcons won, they were in the playoffs. They laid an egg. Since Im also a Lions fan, I was hoping the Falcons would win the division and one NFC south team and the Lions would take the wildcard. Obviously I also wanted the Panthers to lose. I also wanted the Seahawks to lose since they play the easy Cardinals next week.

Falcons vs Saints. They laid an egg. They couldnt get in the endzone against a battered defense. What was the problem. It wasnt easy to pinpoint. The only thing I like was the aggressive playcalling such as going for it in their own territory on 4th and one. Now the playoffs begin for the Falcons. Win and they are in. Lose, and they are likely out because I think the Seahawks will destroy the Cardinals. The good thing is that the Panthers secured a playoff spot and so perhaps they wont play all their starters.

Panthers vs Bucs: How lucky was the bounce. Newton fumbles the ball at the 2 yard line and it bounces cleanly right back to him and he jumps into the endzone. If he fumbles it away, the Bucs win. It wouldnt have secured a spot for the Falcons but it would have given the Lions some life if they could have won.

Lions vs Bengals: A big game came, and the Lions laid an egg. They could have been sitting pretty for the last weekend but instead eliminated themselves.

Seahawks vs Cowboys: THe Seahawks have an easy win awaiting so we needed them to lose. THe cowboys are now out. The falcons must win now.

As for the University of Georgia it was good but a mixed bag. In case you missed it, the NCAA created an early signing period from Dec 20-22. Georgia had the the best class they have ever had and flipped a couple recruits in the process. They now sit with the best recruiting class in the nation.

Now the bad is that Georgia’s basketball team recruited a 5 star baskeball recruit. sounds like good news. Why is it bad news? It is bad because it gives Mark Fox life to stick around. He cannot coach and and typically cannot recruit. He needs to be fired. He is the basketball version of Mark Richt.

I am nervous about Georgia in the BCS final 4. I think they will blow out Oklahoma and I think Alabama will await the Bulldogs. Im excited and nauseous. Go Dawgs!

Championship weekend NFL & NCAAF

Championship weekend NFL & NCAAF

I am nervous. The balance of the season for both the Atlanta Falcons and the Georgia Bulldogs rests on this weekend games.

Georgia has the SEC championship game first on Saturday. It is very straightfoward. If Georgia wins, they are in the final 4. If they lose, they are out of the final 4. Should they be out of the final 4 if they lose, I dont necessarily think so but the committee never cares about Georgia. In my mind, there should not be a scenario where Ohio State gets in. The ACC winner is in. The SEC winner is in. So two spots are gone. Oklahoma gets in if they win. Wisconsin gets in if they win. If Oklahoma loses, I think TCU should be in over Ohio State U because they won their division, and have two losses. If Ohio State wins out, Oklahoma should not drop past Ohio State because Oklahoma beat them in Ohio. What the committe will do to make themselves look better is make Ohio State 4th and make Oklahoma 6th and put Georgia in the middle at 5th. Realistically, unless georgia gets blown out, I dont think they should drop past 4th because I think they would be the best two loss team having lost to one team twice. If anything, if Clemson loses, they should grab the 4th spot. Ultimately, I think the committee will look to find a way to get Ohio State and Alabama into the mix. Hopefully Oklahoma and Wisconsin win and then the committee doesnt have much to decide.Championship weekend NFL & NCAAF

As for the NFL, the Falcons play the red hot Vikings. Fortunately the Saints and Panthers play and have the same record. The falcons are currently one game behind. In addition, the Seahawks play the Rams. So fortunately for the Falcons, the teams around them have to lose but falling two games behind the division leader puts them at a distinct disadvantage. The Falcons still have games left with their division foes so a loss could be overcome but leaves their backs against the wall and makes so they have to win every game the rest of the season.

The Pain

I have had to take a few breaks from sports. The pain of being a fan of the U of Georgia and Atlanta teams has taken its toll on me. I have become irritable, I have scared my children and I let the anger mess with all facets of my life. Ultimately, I cannot help it, why must our teams do this to us.

To live the nightmare of the Georgia Alabama game where we got the breaks, went up 11 points, only to completely tire out on defense and not stop a single runner. When all looked lost, we drove down to within the 10 with an opportunity. Simply spike the ball and realistically we had 3 opportunities to get it in the endzone. Instead we do not spike the ball, we let about 6 valuable seconds run off and then have a pass deflected and caught inbounds by our own player only to have the clock run off. Painful, excrutiating, I did not watch a bowl game after that and honestly have no idea who Georgia played and if they won.
