Conference Championships

This year, it’s easy.

Green Bay – Seattle: The Seahawks are pretty much the same team as the one that obliterated the Packers in the season opener. Fortunately for Green Bay, they are not. BSP feels Green Bay is a much improved team from the debacle that was the opener. We think Green Bay can run the ball on the Seahawks and they aren’t as terrified this go-around. They will target whoever goes up against Richard Sherman. All bets are off if Mike McCarthy tries to be “genius coordinator.” More often than not, those guys blow games with imperial play-calling. I love me some Seattle — indebted for life for trampling Lord Peyton and the donkeys — but select Green Bay in the upset in Seattle.

Indianapolis – New England: Tom Brady is publicly confident, even tweeting a picture of himself riding a Colt. Pretty unusual for a New England player period. There’s a lot of talk about this game being closer than the earlier matchup in Indianapolis, won 42-20 by the Patriots. Don’t bet on it. New England is better prepared and certainly in better shape than Denver was. The Colts gave Denver chances to get back in the game, and the Patriot defense is ready to win. Count on Tom Brady to lead the Patriots in yet another face-first stomp, and for Darelle Revis to play in his first Super Bowl.

Oh, one bit of knowledge: sports talk radio was trying to convince me about point spreads. Our local afternoon guy was trying to say Seattle over Green Bay by seven is too big of a spread. Lol, point spreads are calculated to get the maximum number of people betting on games, not a real number! They want to get your money! You think anyone had Indy by 11 last weekend? Gamblers got slaughtered this past weekend. A touchdown or less isn’t a routine margin of victory in today’s NFL and Vegas knows it, even in an upset. As if the league likes upsets.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
