2nd Round Playoff Series


Recommended Posts

wow  Because I missed Buccaneers I came to playoff thinking Seahawk's highest draft position would be 20th instead of 21st. Now with the loss of Colts, 22nd is the highest position entering today's playoff series. What an idiot.

Only Steelers and Saints are ahead of Seahawks so we have to root for them to lose games.

Titans vs Ravens match up doesn't matter.

 

 

Jamal Adams will have surgeries to repair shoulder and finger.  Damn.

Indy- Jonathan Taylor

Rams- Cam Akers

Ravens- JK Dobbins

Titans- Derrick Henry

Browns- Nick Chubb

Saints- Alvin Kamara

Chicago- David Montgomery

Packers- Aaron Jones, but offense runs through Rodgers, Adams

 

Steelers- Big Ben + receivers

Bucs- Brady + receivers

Buffalo- Josh Allen

KC- Mahomes + receivers

Seattle- Wilson + receivers

 

Washington- NA

 

Majority of the teams that made the playoffs have a strong running game with young RBs.  So far Buffalo and TB won with their QBs but Seattle for some reason went away from their identity and tried establishing the run instead of getting DK and Lockett going early. Buffalo never forces the run game and always gets Allen and Diggs going.  Tom attacked down field with his talented receivers.  Colts made some questionable decisions but featured Taylor and Rivers spread the ball around.  Rams gave Akers plenty of touches and let the defense work. 

Moral of the story....stick to your identity/strengths. Since Sam/Fields/Wilson have not proven themselves we need to give them a run game to support and get an identity like we did with Sanchez.

I think a lot of the game plan is adjusted for the D a team is playing. LA has an awesome pass rush so it would make sense to try an establish the run to open up the passing game. It did not work.  Buffalo has a run game. It is called Josh Allen.  I can see Buffalo’s O succeed against LA because of Allen’s running ability.

I believe teams need to adjust their game plans based on the opponent’s strengths and weaknesses. This does not mean they should completely abandon their strengths but to be stubborn may not always work well.

1pm: Colts vs Bills

430pm: Rams vs Seahawks

820pm: WFT vs Buccaneers (None of it offers but whatever)

 

Colts situation is tough because Colts need to lose game so Matt Eberflus can be reachable up to 3rd round of interview within 10 days. Colts need to beat Bills in case if Wolford whips Seahawks' backside for draft position of 2nd 1st round selection.

This Titans - Balt. game is a good lesson of relying too much on your strengths. Balt shutdown Henry and stalled the Titans O.
