Yea this year has been great. Changing of the guard when it comes to quarterbacks and new teams in the SB. Everybody thought the Ravens were the team to beat, man they folded in the playoffs
You got that right (Ravens folded quickly.) They seemed so unbeatable toward the end of the season. But they rested their starters for the last game, since it didn't mean anything. Then they had a week off. So when they actually came out to play again after that long of a break, their mojo was lost. They would have been better off having to play a wildcard round just to keep their momentum up.
I think you are right about the changing of the guard in quarterbacks, too. The 'pocket passer' (Drew Brees and Tom Brady) just aren't the future. A running quarterback adds another 'threat' on offense as we've seen with Lamar Jackson and Russell Wilson (and Patrick Mahomes.) That's where teams should be heading for future QBs.
It looks like the San Francisco 49ers should dispatch with the Green Bay Packers pretty easily, but with Kittle injured, it may be more difficult than it looks. But I saw Aaron Rodgers limping toward the end of the Seattle game, so he is not 100% either, which will limit him somewhat, too. I still think the 49ers take the win and go on to the Superbowl.
Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans might appear to be a blowout going the Chiefs way (I mean, KC just KILLED the Texans!) but the Titans didn't get past the Ravens because they were lucky. They had a tough defense and a great running game and the Chiefs have been horrible at stopping the run this year. This game is going to be more even than I think most expect. Should be a great Sunday of football.
