Pro Football Playoff Previews and Predictions

January 8, 2015

Next Week’s Matchups:

Dallas @ Green Bay

What to watch for:

Dallas will travel to Green Bay to face Aaron Rodgers and their dynamic offense. Green Bay has not lost at Lambeau Field yet this year. Dallas matches up well with Green Bay because they have a strong running game that can keep the clock running and keep the ball out of Green Bay’s hands. The weather might get the best out of Dallas as it is likely to be extremely cold. Green Bay’s offense will be looking to feast on a weak Dallas secondary.

Pick: Green Bay 31-24

Carolina @ Seattle

What to watch for:

Indians knock down Mountain Pine

December 18, 2014

On Tuesday, Dec. 16, Poyen High School hosted conference foe Mountain Pine for a set of games, coming out victorious in each one.
In the first match up, the Junior Indians dispatched of Mountain Pine by the score of 44-27.
The game was all tied up at 8-8 after one quarter, but the Poyen offense came alive in the second quarter to take a 22-12 lead into the locker room for the halftime break.

Leopards fall on the road to Jessieville

December 18, 2014

If not for a big third quarter by Jessieville, the Malvern Leopards could have picked up a big road win against one of the more talented teams in the 3A Classification on Tuesday, Dec. 16.
The Lions were able to pick up the win against Malvern by the score of 65-54.
The Leopards trailed just 9-7 after one quarter and the margin remained at two (25-23) at the halftime break.
But in that third quarter, Jessieville outscored the Leopards 23-12 to put Malvern in a deficit they could not overcome.

The bowl season is reaching tipping point

December 18, 2014

I do love the college football bowl season.
Aside from March Madness, it is one of my favorite seasons of the year, but something has changed that has made getting to a bowl so much less significant.
There was a time where the bowls were confined to just a couple of days around the start of the year and only the best of the best were allowed to compete.
Don’t get me wrong, I think it was beyond time that the playoff system got underway, only the bowl system seems to be getting bigger and bigger each year.

For the full column, see the Wednesday, Dec. 17 edition of the MDR.
