Day Two: Robot vs Indian Girl NFL Playoffs 2016January 17th, 2016 12:24 pm | Posted by in PureNerdism | Sports
After the embarrassment that was yesterday, and the Packers validating my Aaron Rodgers numbers, only to have the defense laugh it off come overtime, we’re back.
Getting. Closer. To. The. Superbowl.
Robot Dave is hell bent on Carolina and will not let up. I am sad to report that I agree. I know they’re young, but they’re smart. Peete Carroll can only be so lucky. Does he have enough luck to get him through today? Even though they’re healthy? Even though they have Wilson and Marshall Lynch? I can’t call that hat trick. The numbers are stacked against them. Plus, I haven’t forgiven Caroll for the heartbreak of the Superbowl last year. I can’t.
Here’s a ditty: Steelers can win. I know what you’re thinking, not with that injury report. But they’re not playing Carolina. Not today. A good coach anticipates players going down. He’s ready for it. Mike Tomlin isn’t a good coach- he’s stellar. Denver’s not as dominate as the Panthers, so they have chance and enough fire power to get through it. Roethlisberger knows how to play injured. If he doesn’t play, they’re out of the playoffs. He’s dragged himself out there before. Season’s a wash if he doesn’t.
Plus, I can’t always agree with the Robot. The smack talk must live on.
