NFL 2011 Playoffs Round 3 Round-Up

Billy Cundiff's missed chip shot field goal cheated me out of a win that would have locked up second place in the picks competition. What are the odds that after 267 games The Wife and I would be tied with only the Super Bowl left? Well, I'm in it to win it! (not "win it" per se, since Steve's already done that, but "I'm in it to not lose it!" doesn't have the same ring to it . . .)

Giants @ 49ers
The Wife: Giants
Me: Giants
Steve: Giants
WINNER: Giants (when offenses and defenses are so evenly matched, special teams is going to make the difference . . .)

Ravens @ Patriots
The Wife: Patriots
Me: Ravens
Steve: Patriots
WINNER: Patriots (man, I got ROBBED here!)


The Wife: 2-0
Me: 1-1
Steve: 2-0


The Wife: 159-110
Me: 159-110
Steve: 172-97

It's not often you can look at one player and say "he really cost this team a shot at the Super Bowl", but in this case you could do that with Williams and his two fumbles. The first leading to the Giants taking the lead because he ignored the fact the ball hit him and let the Giants have it. Second for the fumble leading to the OT loss. Still though the offense definitely didn't get it done outside a couple big plays.

Pretty damn sad and pathetic that people are sending him threats and reacting the way they are though. It is just a game afterall and had the offense been able to convert more than a single 3rd down or complete more than 1 pass to a WR who knows...

Anyway, go Pats in the SB. Can't stand Eli.......
