unlike a run, the play isn't over when the ball crosses the goal line - the receiver has to make the catch.
Proper call, bad rule that has to be fixed.

Of course, anyone who watched the NE - Seattle SB should know NOT to throw a pass in the middle of the field near the goal line at the end of a game.

I like Chuck, but it's time. I thought with Grigson being gone and a healthy Luck, he would be fine.

This team is in worse shape now than when he started , but I do not blame all that on him.

Ryan Grigson is the gift that keeps on giving.

I don't have enough room to write a dissertation on Mr Grigson and the state of this franchise, and nobody else really cares outside of Indy to read this, nor should they.

My biggest fear is Andrew Lucks future. They might be wise to draft a QB this year, or go with Jacoby. I think he is talented enough, but needs some more coaching and a decent offensive line in front of him, he has almost kinda regressed. Probably from taking a beating and not given enough time to feel comfortable behind the poor blocking. Some of it is him for poor reads/holding the ball, but I give him a pass for being young and coming in with very little playing time if that.

Chris Ballard has his hands full.

If the Colts don't send a player to Orlando through the alternate process, it will be the first time since 1997 that they're not represented at the Pro Bowl.

I've always known the expression "the ground can't cause a fumble, but it can cause an incompletion".

People say "well it would've been a catch in college", that is because his knee was down with possession, but in the NFL a knee being down without defender contact means nothing.

I'm not sure they need to revise or change the catch rule as it is. And I'm not a Pats fan or a Steeler fan.

I eked out a third place finish in my NFL pick 'em league this year by one game. Pays out about a hundred bucks or something. Not too bad for third place.

I'm over being bummed about my Packers season since it was pretty much done the moment Rodgers' collarbone snapped, but I'm excited for all of the new playoff teams - Buffalo, LA, Tennessee, even Jacksonville. Should be interesting, though I wouldn't be surprised if the AFC Championship ends up being NE v Pitt. Neither Buffalo, KC or Tennessee look up to the task, but there is always one surprise early round knock out. My guess is that will be Minnesota - the NFC is much more evenly matched and, I mean, Minnesota just finds a way.

I like all four underdogs this weekend. Not to win, but I'll take the points. Tenn +9, Atl +6, But+9, Car+7.

It'll never happen but what the heck.

I would have to look, I do know last year favorites went 4-0 in this round, however I have always assosiated next week as a better historical week for favorites. Perception says home teams are great in the playoffs, which generally is true, but in this opening round, I think there is a better chance for dogs to cover. (edit favs went 4-0 last year this week, and all by DD).

Lines sure are high.

I do think I like Tennessee. I can see ways Atlanta makes a game of it, but I think they are the weaker team, they just have that been-there experience. Can you really trust Jax to cover that many? But can you trust Buffalo to score much? Saints 2-0 vs Carolina this year with both wins being by double digits. For all the talk of 'it is hard to beat a team 3x in the same year', I heard a stat that said the team who won the first two are something like 65% in the 3rd game SU.

Two years ago, dogs went 4-0 in this round and neb is correct, favs went 4-0 last year.

I'm maybe looking at much at totals as teams. If McCoy is out for Buffalo, how do they score and Jax is a pretty poor offense too. Mariotta just isn't very good. More INTs than TDs in a passing oriented game. Still mulling things but I have a hunch Newton will make just enough plays that CAR can cover, but not win. Interested to see who ends up playing PHIL, there is more of a dropoff to Foles than I thought from Wentz. Philly could very well get beat next week no matter who they play.

Still rolling things around the old bean.

Changes my mind on one of them. I like like Rams giving six. Just don't trust Matt Ryan. Atlanta seems to be all over the place.

I pick KC, ATL, JAX, and NO.

Slump Bowl. I don't trust Andy Reid teams in the playoffs, but the Titans are even luckier than the Chiefs are to still be playing.

I'd like to see the Rams get a win, but they are super young. Most likely upset.

I'd also like to see Buffalo get a win, but Jacksonville is surprisingly solid this season.

I'll be surprised if this isn't the closest game of the weekend - two teams that know each other well and are pretty evenly matched. But New Orleans has been better all season.

It would be cool to see Buffalo win a game. I know I have posted this someplace on the site but Marv Levy lives right around the corner from here. Be nice to see him get to watch a win.

OK, first round of the playoffs, how the dogs do?

2017 Favs 4-0 ats and su

2016 Favs 1-2-1 ats and 3-1 su (1 upset GB at Wash, Seattle was a road fav and won but did not cover, the push was Pit at Cin - the meltdown game by Bengals, my source showed line at 2 which is what Pitt won by and KC won big at Houston)

2015 Favs 2-2 ats 3-1 su (Balt won at Pitt as 3 pt dog, Det lost at Dal by 4 catching 6).

2014 Favs 0-3-1 ats, 1-3 su (SD won +6 at Cincy and KC was road fav and lost at Indy, think this was a big comeback game. Saints won at Phil in the upset and SF won at GB by 3, which my line shows 3 for the push. Road teams were 3-1 SU).

2013 Favs 4-0 ats and su (boring no dogs or upsets)

2012 Favs 3-1 ats and su (Pitt was upset at Denver which went to overtime - TEBOW!)

2011 Favs 1-3 ats and su (Beastmode upset the Saints and Jets won at Indy, GB won at Philly as a small dog, Balt won as a road fav at KC. Road teams were 3-1 SU).

2010 Favs 1-3 ats and su (Balt won at NE and Zona beat GB at home for Sunday upsets, Jets also won on the road for 3 road dog upsets!)

Murray is out for Tennessee...does that matter, isn't Henry maybe better? Some say is pass protection is lacking, I don't know.

The Mariotta issue, I've heard many blame the play calling for his lackluster play at times...he needs to use the legs! He was hurt midseason and it seemed to be lingering a bit when he came back. Heard a Titan player say something to the effect of "Marcus overcame the play calling today to get this win"...interesting.

Henry is a capable back, I don't think they lose anything with Murray out other than bringing in a fresh back from time to time. I like a play on the total there. Have been listening to quite a few shows with commentary, maybe it's the KC as a "local" team influence, but my line is -9 1/2, which is above the national spread. I would lean toward TN if I had to pick a team, and will definitely take them if it touches 10.

I like Atl +6 1/2, Jax no matter what (will have my biggest wager of the weekend on the under there) and still trying to decide on CAR/NO. Currently, that one is NO -7 on my sheet.
