Klassik does not have high expectations for Klassik's favorite team, the New York Giants, this season, but it will be nice to at least wash away the disastrous conclusion of the season last year for the Giants. Klassik is curious to see how the new coach of the Giants, Brian Daboll, will do especially with players such as Daniel Jones who are given one last chance to stick with the team.
Of course, NFL seasons are always hard to predict. Who had Cincinnati going to the Super Bowl last year at this time? 😮 Some say the NFL stands for 'Not For Long'. With that in mind, it's really rather pointless to make too many predictions at this point in the season.
Anyway, Klassik has a CD of NFL Films music composed by Sam Spence which Klassik usually plays at the beginning of the season when hopes are high before the Giants often dash those hopes pretty early on. Klassik will play that CD tonight or tomorrow night.
Really enjoying the season so far.
The team that I really enjoy watching, and root for, are the Baltimore Ravens. Last time I looked we are 3 - 2. But the division is weak this year with the Rams having gone 'all-in' last year. They have shot their bolt (and nobody repeats a Superbowl win.
I'm thinking they are lively outsiders for a Superbowl appearance this year, if Lamarr can stay healthy.
Time to bring this thread up to date..starting with the divisional standings going into week 15:
Buffalo 11-3 (won-lost)
Cincinnati 9-4 (Baltimore 9-5)
Kansas City 10-3
Tampa Bay 6-7
San Fran 10-4
The AFC Championship probably rests between the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City.
But who will the winner meet in the Superbowl?
According to the betting it will be either the Eagles or the San Fran 49ers.
The 49ers have lost their starting QB, however, the stand-in Purdy is doing a good job. It remains to be seen if this inexperienced distributer can withstand playoff pressure. San Fran have very good defence,The Eagles look strong allround and Ose on the NFL Show claims thet they are the best team in the League right now.
The Chiefs have Patrick Mahomes - a tremendously versatile and mobile QB. If he stays fit they have a big chance.
I cant see Baltimore getting much further as they have been limited by injuries.
This is a very interesting part of the season which is boiling up to be a must watch for those of us who understand and appreciate the game.
Buffalo Bills Safety Hamlin stretchered off after sufferring a cardiac arrest during the big game against the Bengals in the early hours of this (Monday morning, our time).
He is in critical condition.
The game was ended by the officials at 7 - 3 to the Bengals. There are no plans to reschedule.
Hamlin was given CPR on the field.
We are down to 8 teams and the better teams have made it through.
The way the seeding works means that the worst teams in their divisions are drawn against the best, hence there are 4 teams who are odds on to go through to the next round.
Cutting to the chase I have found a bet! Yeh!
Some time ago I formed a negative opinion of Dak Prescott the Dallas Q-back. I had a decent bet on him to win a game and when the chips were down he failed to deliver. His excuse was he couldnt handle the ball in the wet. So if it rains and I know about it I will double my bet - on the 49ers.
The other reason I like a bet on the 49-ers is that they are in the weaker division. Once they get the Cowboys out of the way, they win their next game and they are in the Superbowl.
Once there its even money whoever they meet. If its the Chiefs or the Bills then I'm in a spot of bother, but I have over 4/1 to my money an even money shot!
