Just curious to see what you guys think. I'm voting for the Cards... they are one-dimensional, as they cannot run the ball, and I don't think their offense would travel well to Giants Stadium. They have also lost a lot of games down the stretch.

 

I think the Falcons are a tough team, but I would rather play them than the Eagles.

 

The Eagles, after they manhandled the Cowboys, are the scariest team for us to play. However, I like our chances against all three of these teams.

Cardinals is the obvious answer. They're one dimensional and they've always been on dimensional even when winning games. They no run game and a defense that isn't more than adequate...maybe. They are so built for the regular season.

The Eagles are hit or miss. Believe me, that team that played today wont show up in the playoffs.

 

You know what, I think you are right. A team that tied the Bengals even after 5 quarters, and a team that loses to the Redskins in a near must game to win... that is a team with consistency issues.

 

I think that the Falcons are scarier now. That is a team with one of the top running backs in the league, one of the top WR's, a very good quarterback, and game changing players on defense like John Abraham. I think we would wear them out with Jacobs and crew, though. Also, it remains to be seen how Ryan would play in the playoffs, on the road in the Meadowlands.

I think we will be fine whoever we face the first go around. You always have to be careful what you wish for. Sure, AZ seems like an easy opponent becasue they way they finnished the season...but keep in mind how suspect, even bad, our pass defense has been the last 4 games. A "easy" team like AZ might very well pick us apart.

these playoffs are very wide-open. if you have to pick, the dog would go with the falcons. they are too young and lack the experience to go deep into the playoffs...get a rookie QB in the second round against a blitz scheme that veterans have trouble with, and that gives the giants the edge. the cardinals are weak in gerenal, but certainly have the talent on offense to do damage and upset anyone in the playoffs. the dog would not want to face the eagles right now...

Other than Warner, the way you described ATL sounds like AZ. The only team that worries me is the Eagles.

the difference is arizona can draw teams into a shoot-out, and if they are on, there isn't a team in the playoffs that can keep pace...the dog would not say the same for Atlanta, but you never know. every team in the playoffs this year should worry you as a fan.

with all due respect to the Dog, there will be no shootout against the Cards. AZ's defense will not be able to stop our running game nor will they be able to mount a decent passing attack in the meadowlands in January.

the dog agrees that having the cardinals come east is definately an advantage. but the cardinals kept pace when they played in the past (it was a one score game). the defense is weak, and the cardinals may not get out of round one, but that offense is scary no matter who they are facing...

It was a 2 score game. We won by 8 points. :)

inaccurate - the NFL is allowed to go for two...that makes it a one possession, one score game. the dog really isn't sure how much football you even watch anymore...

 

 

If the two point conversion counts as its own possession than all Extra points must count as possessions. That means that we have 0 yards on every possession in which we kicked an extra point. This means that statistically we'd be better off not scoring touchdowns. Hard to form a strategy for my fantasy team based on this system :confused:

A TD is 1 score. A 2 point conversion, would be another score. The Blue isnt sure how much of a life you have. :)

you are quite silly. it was a one possession game, or, as the dog put it, it came down to the last possession. that is a one score game. yes, the extra point(s) need to be made, but it is still a one possession/one score game. if they had won by 7, would you not be calling it a one score game???

:LMAO:

 

Thats funny, calling me silly, when you just made yourself look like an idiot. You said one SCORE game, and now your trying to say POSSESION. :LMAO:

 

Silly dog....silly, silly dog.

the dog forgot you are unable to read between the lines...or possibly read at all. the dog was pointing out that they are one in the same - one possession game = one score game. again, if you are going to study these things like you do in search of anything to hang your hat on, arent't you contradicting yourself when you say this is all "chewin the rag"? this is why the dog admires you - you can be consistently silly and wrong, and still keep coming back. entertaining!

Back to the question at hand....Cardinals....duh. They are 2-7 against winning teams (500 or better) and have been absolutely decimated in their trips east. And I don't like their chances for an all out air attack on Jan 11, in Giant Stadium.

 

Philly scares me for the same reason Dallas would have - familiarity. We know each other so well, all the games are going to be close and either side will have a chance to win. Yes, Philly can be wildly inconsistent but I wouldn't count on getting anything less than their best if they come in. Having to play Philly and Carolina again would be the toughest possible road.

 

That said, against less familiar foes - see Baltimore & Cincy this year - is where Philly seems most prone to off games. I wouldn't be stunned to see Minny beat them. I'm hoping both home underdogs win and the Cards come east.

Yeah, its chewin the rag, did you actually google stuff for this convo? :LMAO:

this is very true...it is the type of game where the dog sees reid outcoaching himself, as he tends to do come playoff time. the eagles have all the tools to end up in the super bowl, it is a matter of playing consistently for them.
