Greatest of All-Time – League of DYKS League Championship Round Picks

A rough week of picks for the Do You Know Sports Guys (DYKS pronounced DICKS) with the exception of yours truly. I managed to somehow go 3-1 despite the Carolina Panthers doing their best to blow a 31-0 first half lead and the Denver Broncos miraculously covering late against the Steelers. I was definitely more lucky than good with my picks this week. The “Bear and I are now tied in the playoff standings with 6-2 records. The Overall Standings leader is still Cousin James “Greenwell39”. There are 3 games left to pick, 3 over/under totals and the total rushing yards in the Super Bowl tie breaker still left to be determined and if Dan “MJ Madness” plans on stealing another title out from “Greenwell39’s” nose he better make his move this week in the Championship Round.

The Final Four of the NFL season and the best four teams all season are left standing with the Patriots, Broncos, Panthers and Cardinals. The Story lines will be great for the week.

  • The possible last time Peyton Manning and Tom Brady face off in an AFC Championship game.
  • The Patriots in 5 straight AFC Championship games and 10 appearances in the last 15 years.
  • A final run for Peyton Manning to win the big game and win as many titles as his little brother.
  • Carson Palmer made it through a playoff game healthy and like Peyton could make a title run in the twilight of his career.
  • Larry Fitzgerald has a game for the ages and is on the threshold of returning to the Super Bowl.
  • The quarterback stars of the moment are in the second half of their career (Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, Peyton Manning and the other Manning, Eli), if Cam Newton wins the Lombardi this year he will be the leader of the next generation of great quarterbacks (Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers, Blaine Gabbert and Brian Hoyer).
  • Those last two might not last that long on the list.
  • The Carolina Panthers could complete a remarkable season and be mentioned as one of the Greatest NFL Teams of All-Time next to those other great one loss teams in the past 18 years, 1998 Vikings, 2004 Steelers and 2011 Packers. I guess it didn’t end that well for those three teams.
  • The Patriots will cheat get to another Super Bowl and entertain us for the two weeks prior to the big game.

 

The Picks: Last Week 3-1, overall 137-127. “The Joker” last week 1-3, overall 132-132. You can hear all “the Joker” picks on the Jeffrey Belanger Podcast.
