Seattle Seahawks pull an upset beating the New Orleans Saints

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: News, NFL, Playoffs,

Marshawn Lynch and Seahawks pull an upsetYes, the Seattle Seahawks were the home team, but with a 7-9 record, they weren't the favorites to win this match up versus the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. However, the Seahawks did win, pulling an unexpected feat, even pulling a double-digit lead (34-20 after three-quarters) before Drew Brees worked his magic and got the score to 34-30 with about nine minutes left in the game. Ten unanswered points and Brees looking good, the Seahawks needed to stop the bleeding and that's when running back Marshawn Lynch took over, evading tacklers, and getting into the endzone, solidifying the upset.

NFC Wild Card Weekend Preview - Saints, Seahawks, Packers, Eagles

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Editorial, NFL, Playoffs, Super Bowl,

Aaron Rodgers leads his Green Bay Packers during the NFC Wild Card weekendThe NFC Wild Card weekend kicks off with the defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints and Seattle Seahawks mixing it up in the Great Northwest on Saturday, January 8th at 4:30PM ET. There has been much ballyhoo about the Seahawks making it into the postseason as NFC West division champions with a losing record (7-9), the first time that's happened in the NFL's history. Feel bad if you're a Tampa Bay Buccaneers or New York Giants fan, both of whom finished with 10-6 records, but because of the current playoff system will be watching instead of playing.

True Predictions: Congratulations to the New Orleans Saints

Posted by Frank Nevarez Categories: Editorial, NFL, Super Bowl,

Description Last week I wrote:  “The Saints, to win, must sustain long drives and keep Peyton Manning off the field.” Somewhere between a Colts’ ten-point lead in the first quarter of the Super Bowl to the end of the second quarter, the Colts lost their mojo. Peyton Manning only had six snaps in the second quarter! Then the Colts lost the second half kick-off. Drew Brees spent the second half spraying the ball around to everyone, and the Saints took Super Bowl XLIV, 31-17.

True Predictions: Colts To Take Super Bowl

Posted by Frank Nevarez Categories: Editorial, NFL,

DescriptionWent 2-0 with the Indianapolis Colts-New York Jets and New Orleans Saints-Minnesota Vikings match-ups. Season record hits 51-37. Look for the Indianapolis Colts to defeat the New Orleans Saints at Super Bowl XLIV. The Saints defense wants to punish Peyton Manning and the Colts defense may be without a healthy DE Dwight Freeney.

True Predictions: Saints, Colts, Vikings and Chargers Will Hold Serve

Posted by Frank Nevarez Categories: Editorial, NFL,

Dallas Cowboys The quarterfinals of the NFL tournament are set. Last week I went 2-2. Season record hits 46-36. There’s a reason why the upcoming playoff home teams got byes last week. They’re a cut above the competition. The favored New England Patriots and Cincinnati Bengals lost last weekend. Were they out-played or just not so good? Will any of the favorites this week be out-played or have a bad day?

True Predictions: Holiday Express, Holiday Elimination Version

Posted by Frank Nevarez Categories: Editorial, NFL,

My goal is to hit the .600-.660 mark with the predictions this season, but it’s going to be tough. I went 3-3 last week. The season record is at 41-32 (just a bit below .570).  To the Express!

True Predictions: Colts Will Lose, Saints Will Win and Home Sweet Home

Posted by Frank Nevarez Categories: Editorial, NFL,

DescriptionLast week’s 2-3 record places the season mark at 38-29. I need some wins and let’s hope that some home-cooking will be the recipe for success this week. We’ve got six games picked and I’m going with the home team for all. Last week the Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers took expected victories, but in statement games I was off the mark as the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings got it done over the New York Giants and the Cincinnati Bengals, respectively. The Miami Dolphins kept their wild card hopes alive by knocking off the Jacksonville Jaguars, who currently hold a wild card spot.

True Predictions:  So Much Good & Bad, Titans, and Patriots vs. Saints on MNF

Posted by Frank Nevarez Categories: Editorial, NFL,

DescriptionWeek Eleven proved profitable for me as I went 5-1 and run the season record to 32-20. Two upsets: Oakland Raiders over the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs over the Pittsburgh Steelers weren’t even selected to predict since I figured the also-rans would have no shot. But I did have the feeling that the one-win wonders, the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions, would deliver a close contest. A last second pass interference call in the end zone set up the Detroit victory. I got the expected wins by the Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers. My lone loss was due to Vince Young leading the Tennessee Titans to their fourth straight victory in a hard-fought match-up with the Houston Texans. The Texans needed to show they could be contenders (against a 3-6 team), but it just was not to be.

True Predictions: Vikings, Jets, Ravens, and Sea Monsters

Posted by Frank Nevarez Categories: Editorial, NFL,

Brett Favre

I went 4-2 this past weekend and 7-4 for the season. The Atlanta Falcons cannot make a statement and lose to the New England Patriots. You tell me if the San Francisco 49ers last second loss to Brett Favre and Minnesota Vikings equals “ugly” as I predicted. I think it counts more as “heart-breaking.” While it was a magical NFL moment to see Favre hoist that ball and to see Greg Lewis snatch it, I am of the mind that Favre will break down at some point during the season. I will either be right on this call or we may be seeing a John-Elway-like end to his career.
