January has come back around for that ass and that doesnt jus mean its time for you to break New Year’s resolutions (yo fat ass aint tryna walk). Nope!! It’s NFL playoff time!!! This is where legends are born, stories are made, and commercials start getting a lil bit better. This year should prove no different with your mix of new teams and old favorites.
1. The New Guys
The NFL postseason has gotten a makeover this year that rivals the “playoff beard”. As i mentioned, there are six new teams in the NFL playoffs this year. Only 2 of those teams (Houston, Detroit) have not had a posteseason berth in the past 10 years. Those same 2 teams also have starting quarterbacks making their postseaon debut as well as other new posteason teams: Houston with 5th round pick T.J. Yates; Cincinatti with the “red rifle” rookie Andy Dalton; Detroit’s Matthew Stafford; San Francisco’s long tim
e farter starter Alex Smith; and the media’s cash cow known as Tim Tebow. By now a lot of football fans have heard Tebow’s story of his professional career
and should be tuned in to see him take on the Steelers. Don’t be surprised if Tebow Time becomes a broke Rolex.
2. Old Reliables
Congratulations if you picked the Steelers to make the playoffs this year, or the Patriots, or the Ravens, or the Saints. Woop de fuckin do. You should be as much a psychic as much as Kim Kardashian should lead marriage counseling. Unfortunately the Steelers had a very competitive division this year and a few rough spots (oh im sry, thas PR talk for got that ass spanked by Baltimore) so they ended up with a 5th seed. Nevertheless they are back with their Super Bowl opponent from last yr , Green Bay Packers. Packers have put up enough points and yards this yr to be relied upon to make playoffs next season also.
3. Hot Heads
In recent seasons, the “best” team has not really won the Super Bowl. When I say that I mean the No. 1 and 2 seed usually lose the Super Bowl or get beat in their conference’s playoff by any of the lower seeds sometimes a 5 or a 6. Those lower seeds are usually on the brink of playoff elimination towards the end of the season and have to almost run the table to get in. Their “win or go home” mindset has been turned since before the season ended and usually it will allow them finish the season in the . This year that team is the Giants. This team is “hot” for the fact they were on the edge of being put out of the playoffs then they win their last 2 games to take the NFC East secure and a home playoff game. Hard to say whether or not Giants can even get to the Super Bowl, but when you have a quarterback whose last name is Manning, chances look better than everyone else.
NFL playoffs are always the shizzz and this year should be no different. Now back to your regulary scheduled boring life without me. holla black!!
