Playoff Picture Looks Exciting

With 4 teams vying for first place in the AFC North in Week 13, things are heating up to meltdown conditions even in the icy north…

The Bengals, who tied a game, are 7-3-1 while the Ravens, Steelers and Browns all have a 7-4-0 record with 2 division wins. These 4 teams will duke it out in their respective divisional games for supremacy over the AFC North.

Meanwhile, the New England Patriots (9-2-0) are running away with the AFC East (and the number 1 seed) unless someone can stop them.

A similar situation is developing in the NFC with the Arizona Cardinals (9-2-0) running away with the NFC West and the number 1 seed.

The NFC South is trying really hard to see how low a team’s record can be and still make the playoffs. The Atlanta Falcons (4-7-0) are leading the division with a 4-0 division record, having beaten each of its division rivals at least once (and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers twice).

 vs.

The Philadelphia Eagles (8-3-0) and the Dallas Cowboys (8-3-0) are vying for first place in the NFC East. One of these teams will win the division and the other will likely make the playoffs as a wild card. This week’s Thanksgiving game between the Cowboys and Eagles will decide who takes the division.

vs.

Another game with playoff implications this Thanksgiving Day is the Seattle Seahawks (7-4-0) trip to San Francisco to take on the 49ers (7-4-0) for sole possession of 2nd place in the NFC West, behind the Cardinals. The winner will be hoping that the Detroit Lions (7-4-0) lose to the Chicago Bears (5-6-0), also on Thanksgiving Day!

vs.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (8-3-0) are looking like the likely winners of the NFC North unless Detroit has something to say about it. But the New England Patriots (9-2-0) will be coming to town this weekend to see if they can knock them down a peg.

Grading The 49ers Offseason

San Francisco 49ers

Here is a recap of the San Francisco 49ers offseason.  Drama has been high, but so has the praise. We’re going to take a look at how the 49ers have performed since they last took the field.

Injuries: B

So far so good. There has been no additional injuries in OTA’s. Navarro Bowman has not had any reported set backs and I expect he will be on the PUP list to start the season and be ready Week 8 for the stretch run. Tank Carradine and Marcus Lattimore had all of last season to recover and are reportedly at 100%.

Draft: A

The 49ers put on a clinic during the 3-day event. Trading back and trading up, the 49ers were able to manipulate the draft in their favor. They got the guys they valued above their draft position and the best players available in almost every round.

Free Agency: B

The 49ers brought in Antonie Bethea to play Donte Whitner’s old safety position. Hes a good veteran with plenty of miles left and a nose for the ball. They did draft a guy who could be his replacement though. Got my eye on this. Also decided to give former 49er, Brandon Lloyd a chance to compete for the 4th WR spot. He won’t win it, but maybe he can get his career resurrected

Trades: A+

Stevie Johnson is the 49ers 3rd #1 WR. Doesn’t make too much money either. A 5th round pick? Steal.  Amazing.

Off The Field: D

D should be for drama. Aldon Smith is a mess, however its gonna be to his favor he already sat down games last year, and I’ve gotten an indication that the airport incident won’t be enough to violate his prohbation, just cost him so extra fines and community service. Vernon Davis holding out of OTAs is fine with me, and didn’t seem to anger his teamates. Get the guy a new contract already! Front office situation seems fine and Colin Kaepernack situation turned out to be sorta hilarious.
