So the Colts and Cowboys were eliminated from the playoffs. The Cowboys tried to fight back but with no evidence of a run game killed them. I believe Zeke was held under 50 yards.

The Colts should have ran the ball more to tire out that defense. It just shows that the Colts have the right Weapons but they just aren’t loaded yet.

This is what I see for the rest of the playoffs;
Chargers won’t play good ball and will lose to New England.

The Dome is still the hardest place to win and Eagles secondary gets ripped apart by Brees.

The championship will be Pat’s and Chiefs. A replay of week 6 (correct if wrong) but this time Mahomes gets it done and goes to his first Superbowl, in a nail biter. This will be that game that is much better than the Superbowl. There is always that game.

I don’t want to go against Donald and Gurley, but I will. For some reason my gut tells me that the Rams can’t keep up with the Saints. But at the same time CJ is looking hot. They probably will run a 2 RB game that would confuse NO but I don’t think it’s enough. Saints by 10

We are to the Superbowl. Remember that saying; defenses win Championships? That’s what this comes down to. Not so much the defense scoring or playing great, but which defense can Outlast these great QBs. Mahomes has such a rounded out offense, with stars in almost every position. Hill is amazing, Kelce is just great and Williams has rose to the occasion.

But as said before, their secondary is weak. I feel that if its a close game Brees could pull off the win by throwing deep. But the electric offense of the Chiefs, with their star QB could make Brees wish he retired. I’ll go in and say the Chiefs score early and often and become our next Champs.

This week was full of upsets and big surprises. Cardinals won (even without Palmer) against the struggling 4th-and-9ers. Sam Bradford stays hot at home as he tops the Houston Texans, Osweiler is no longer looking like he did last year. My Bears lost, again. Big Ben adds to his TD total, with 4 touchdowns against the Jets. Carson Wentz throws two touchdowns while losing to the Lions, giving them their first loss of the season. Then there was the tragedy down in Carolina as Cam was taking out of the game (Concussion) leading to another blowing loss. Though Carolina might be looking horrible, Tom Brady isn’t,  as he came back Sunday. Brady took it to the win-less Browns, recording 406 yards with three Touchdowns. My record is now sadly 33-26. I might not being too hot, but I hope to turn it around.

The 2016 NFL season commenced on Thursday night, as Denver took the first “w.” The rest of the week went very well, as we got to see a few very close game and got a taste on what to expect from this season. After week one we can only guess who will be in the playoffs, but I think I know who will be in the playoffs. We wont be able to make an educated guess until week 10, but if these teams played the way they did, this week, they will have no problem getting into the playoffs. I am no Guinness, actually I am not that good at analyzing teams, but bare with me.
AFC East: This is an easy guess. We have seen over the years that the Patriots wont be going anywhere, anytime soon. The biggest downfall for the Patriots is that they have 4 weeks without Brady (Suspended for deflategate.) This puts all pressure on their backup, Jimmy Garoppolo, as he will be setting the tone until Tom Brady returns. Garoppolo looked amazing Sunday, as he was down Gronkowski, giving Patriots their first win against a tough Arizona squad! Luckily, the Jets are the only opponent to worry about in the East, as Dolphins are still building and Bills well suck. This will be another year of Patriots in the playoffs, even without their starting Qb.  
AFC West: This whole division is confusing and hard to read, right now. The Chief, Manning, is no longer with the Broncos, leaving them without a solid QB. They gave the ball to Trevor Siemen, sitting Paxton (Their rookie franchise), but I see Paxton playing in week 6. Though they are questioning a lot of things, the Broncos aren’t questioning their Defense. They have one of the best defenses in the NFL, and this will help them win their division. Though the Broncos will win the division, it wont be easy the Raiders and Cheifs are playoff contenders and will give them a run for their money! I say it will come down to the last few weeks.
AFC North: Bengals or Steelers? Hold on, Ravens are getting better? Oh my God, who do we choose? The Bengals made a run for the title last year, this was until Dalton broke his thumb, and was forced to watch his team from the sideline as they lost. The big problem with the Bengals is their o-line could stop the pass rushers of New York. This leaves the Bengals very vulnerable, especially now that Eifert isn’t back until week 4. Ravens aren’t a playoff team yet. This leaves one team left, Pittsburgh! Yes, I said the Steelers. As long as Big Ben stays healthy they should have no problem winning their division.
AFC South: This is the worse division, hands down, in the AFC. Any team can win four games and still win a playoff spot. The problem now is that we have three good teams running for the top. The Colts, Texans, and the Jags! I don’t know what happened to the Colts, but they didn’t have a good game Sunday, since I refuse to believe that the Lions are actually better without Megatron, I will say that the Colts didn’t have it together, Sunday. The team that really impressed me was Jacksonville. They ran right beside the Packers the whole game and only lost by 9. This is pretty good, especially now that Jordy is back! I want to say that the Jags will win the division, but I can’t go against Hopkins and the Houston Texans. Once Osweiler gets his flow going, he will lead this team to the playoffs, though he will lose in the first round, it is a big step in the right direction.
AFC Wild Card: The Bengals and Chiefs will be the teams to expect here. The Chiefs are out for blood, since their season ended early last year. The Bengals still have Dalton and A.J. so expect them to get their o-line together and explode in the mid-season.
NFC EAST: This is pretty easy. The Giants are the only reasonable option here. The Eagles have Wentz, but he has only played the Browns, so I can’t say he’s the real deal yet. I did like Prescott (Dem Boys) but we know Romo is coming back soon, and he will be taking back the starting position. Romo isn’t the guy to lead the Cowboys to the playoffs, so unless they stick with Prescott, you can expect another season at the bottom, below the Redskins.
NFC West: The Cardinals looked decent against the Patriots, but they also looked horrible. They lost to a team without any of their real weapons. This doesn’t make their season promising, at all. They do have a pretty easy schedule though, so we will see. The winner of the West will be the Seahawks. They will get their offense together and come out hot against the weak side of their schedule. You never doubt Wilson, so as long as he stays healthy you should count them in.
NFC North: Being a Bears fan, this section makes me so bitter. I want to say the Bears, but that would be foolish. I have come to the conclusion that we are in a rebuild. They have a young team, so we will see in the next couple years, but for now we know who wins the North. The Vikings would have been a good contender, but without Teddy they aren’t the same team. Bradford didn’t work in Phili and he wont work in Minnesota. The Packers, on the other hand, are back to their full strength. They have Devante Adams, Jordy Nelson, and the two Rodgers. This team is primed to make it far in the playoffs.
     NFC South: Drew Brees is going to have a 4,000 yard season, in one of the last seasons of his career, and this will push the Saints close to the top, but they will fall short to the Carolina Panthers. Cam Newton and that Defense are hungry after last year, something that will fuel them to go hard. It is simple to say that Panthers will be in the playoffs, but not at 15-1 like last year.
NFC Wild Card: The Cardinals and the Saints will be the teams to watch. They might lose their division, but they are two teams expecting to make a splash.
This is a very rough thing to do, because who knows what will happen. Also, I wasn’t able to watch any preseason games, which makes it hard to know what teams have. I just know from what I have seen so far, this is going to be an amazing year, and should be fun to watch.

Before we start. I would like for you guys to check out my previous post. It takes you through a brief history of my writing journey. Though a tough one, this journey is one that I refuse to take for granted or say it wasn’t worth it. Every post was worth the time put into it. So please click here to go to that blog, right after you watch the video 😉

   Anyways, today I was playing Madden, trying to complete another challenge. During the gameplay, I threw the ball up for my TE. The ball clanged off the field goal post and fell to the ground. After seeing the football hit the ground, a lightbulb went off in my head. “What if I caught that?” I thought. That is when I lined up my TE to be in the right spot at the right time, this was the Result.
(Wouldn’t allow me to just import my video, so had to make it a YouTube video, sorry!!!!)

Sorry for the audio, you can turn the media down. I didn’t expect anyone to talk XD
Love you guys. I hope you have a good night!

I am ready!
I am watching NFL HQ and thinking about the next season. I am ready for the boys to get back out on the gridiron, but also I’m ready for the all wondering fantasy football. The time of the year where men get together and compare their stats, also fight for the championship. I had very fun time, last year, and I’m ready to get back in the playing field. I didn’t last year, but that is fine, because I’m coming back for my championship that lies the hand of my good friend.

This year, I will be doing a live league, compared to an old online league, with a handful of my wonderful wo-workers. The same co-workers that played last year. I am excited to be able to do this with my friends, and I cant wait to see what they have learned over the last year, and how they will differentiate their team to get the best results. I know that I have learned a lot from the last few years, and that is trust your gut.

If you are playing fantasy, trust your gut! It is important that you don’t overthink your decisions about your line-up. Don’t look at stats and think “I shouldn’t play him, maybe him, or him” that will just leave you confused, when in reality, you were doing just fine with the first guy. Now with your new guy, you will possibly get less points, all because you didn’t want to trust your gut. Now there will be times where you will need to make a educated guess, but go with what your gut says. If you think a Brady against the Bills is better than Fitzpatrick against the Bears, then keep your decision and hope for the best.

I will also be doing an online ESPN league that will be testing different line-ups, so it wont be a serious league. I want to see what some of the sleepers are doing, so that is what it will be for; it will be to test the new rookies or players coming off injuries. Also it will be used to help new players, which I am inviting whoever is new to fantasy to this league. This league should help new players learn the scoring, also what works and what doesn’t. 

As the new fantasy season opens, so does my Facebook page; Gridiron Retreat, a website used to help fantasy players with their league, also to update football lovers on what is happening around the league! I didn’t post as much as I wanted to last year, but this year will be different, since I have a little more time. I am attempting to post everyday, hopefully moving up to posting multiple times a day. I don’t know what kind of effect this will have on Impromtdude, but once it gets closer, I will let you know!
