The last part this season. People were blitz and Michael Vick didn't really give them problems -- only read the Philadelphia Eagles -- at this and because he had a quarterback like Michael Vick will be get out of that trouble because they knew their offer to. -- -- -- -- -- But this come around. The -- to have a chance to prepare for Michael Vick a lot of guys talk about that running the football Aaron Rodgers runs the football while these two quarterbacks -- mindful of the thousand yard rush pretty amazed if Michael Vick is his electrifying and the special was we -- all your long. He will rise to the -- -- -- -- -- -- by Southwest Airlines no change fees they'll worry Bryan Webber joined. But the former pro quarterback Erik Kramer there was a wild game on wild card weekend so -- -- the -- with the Eagles take about the Packers. They get up in the second quarter Green Bay up seven nothing Aaron by. You're hooked up with -- names killed in the corner of the end zone it was fourteen nothing -- By the Eagles responded in the guard Michael Vick connecting with Jason -- for the 44 yard touchdown making it fourteen set. Then the -- marched down the field Roger dumping it off of Randy Jackson with a sixteen yard score it was what it was ten green bags. With four minutes ago they budgeted from one yard out for two point conversion was no good the Packers blood when he was sixteen. The Eagles up one final day of work less than a minute ago but that was intercepted by tomorrow William Green Bay wants what do what sixty. AFC the Ravens rabbit but he's in Kansas City Joe Flacco with a pair of touchdowns Baltimore's defense fourth. Five sort of. Words that have allowed three costly interceptions the Ravens will play Pittsburgh that week that he now lost seven consecutive playoff games. Oki came in the Baltimore won -- -- to -- -- -- their defense out of trouble with case he's ground game in -- out what -- game move along. Yeah well I think the other she's run the ball well early big gas tomorrow -- runs it was 107 at halftime. But I really felt that the king if he thinks turnaround in the second half they -- off. But -- series they had the ball to third quarter read a pass the ball three straight times Cassel struggled looked a little -- -- aren't from all over. And then Baltimore's offense kind of took hold. -- -- it was and catch above the rest today and got away from that -- Baltimore's. Today no big plays out of the Kansas City he pats game last week in him that he's not a lot of big plays against and they're so in that phase of the game. Much better than shored up things in the back in. These are up front of articulate more pressure quarterbacks erecting fences lifting they're getting healthy and get hot the right time and Ed -- continues to play like a Hall of Fame whereas Kansas City sloppy game all around but the very young team. Do you think -- -- they -- bounce back to make it to both -- and again I direct it picked Braves to show up today. That mix isn't going to be a little different they only played three games this season. Teams with winning records two of those were against the Chargers I think the Chargers are gonna be improved next year I don't know. I think we'll have a tough time also winning the division and winning ten games again. Probably not as good next year with yet okay let's go back to the Packers win over the Eagles early on Green Bay got the ground game going with a dark -- -- about a hundred yards. In the rushing category you'd think they finally found a running back. Well on the -- running back big top. Guy -- -- -- I'd be he was able powdered up been adamant bounce -- run for some distance outside but I think what really got to meet today Bryant was the fact that. Jane starts or whoever was running the football. Did not have to have -- five guys just get back the line of scrimmage. The I that's why the Green Bay Packers in the run game today really up that a DeSean Jackson got banged up early in the game even though it played the second half. Do you think that injury affected the all -- overall I'll no doubt I mean you could just feel. The energy in the medium come apart because. That's their big -- got when he went down you did all they did not have at least the threat of going down the field or something big happen it was a long after that though that's -- Jerry Macklin. Hit one run across the field and actually but that seems open but because didn't have the -- isn't -- a -- came in and make some plays down the middle of the field but. Really that that -- of the home the home run really I think. Got it allowed the Green Bay packer defense the crowd -- a little bit more -- you know the guys a blow the whistles always a big part of playoff football analogy get he would Mike Pereira. The adult -- are negotiating expert who was in LA and want to win that game between the Eagles and the Packers. I'm Mike Pereira the wild card is in the books and -- a lot of well played games and I must tell you well officiated games. That's typical of the playoffs you're gonna get better teams in better disciplined teams and you have lower after a lower teams in terms of the number of fouls and really we saw that in in this case all four games interesting play. In the game really here in in Philadelphia the two point conversion with moral to the goal the pass from Vick to Alex if they're in the at the back of the end zone. Initially ruled as an illegal touch correctly but that the tribe was over no replay. But here's the deal it was not a loss of down penalty. Norwood at the last play of the football game so they have the retry it after the five yard penalty from a seven yard line now. Celek stepped out of bounds and he reestablished got both feet in before touching the ball bat made it an illegal touch. Now -- stepped out of bounds. And then cut the past before reestablishing. That would've made it and it strictly an incomplete pass and then there would have been no replay but you know you gotta give the officials credit here. Including the two alternates that are involved in all playoff games. They got together somebody could collect it collect and they went to wreck referee Pete morality. And said Pete we've got to have another player we've got to retract from the seven yard line. And although they have broken already in the TV commercial the crew got together notified. Both clubs -- from the seventh still unsuccessful. But this is the playoffs and you get crazy things and playoffs too so. We -- in the book wild card division next week always great football always exciting football. I'm like thanks very much he -- go back to our apparel big upset starting with the -- shocking -- over the age. Nolan other coming on this -- think nobody else really. But also other kind of besides. You know nobody in the eighth off -- -- no way I mean it is a really short that they have a secondary meeting where did anybody up and realize. We have to cover people when they run beyond the line of scrimmage nobody covered -- Roman Harper I don't know what was going on with him all day long but. The ain't no hot receivers were running all by the secondary for the -- No plays being made that in the out the back get that defense that's what killed the game for the about the performance from that out of backe was nearly picked. And that brawl that point. That they may matter how about -- -- he's -- I didn't want LS doesn't game I don't think so forth his best game ever as a pro he just don't. If they weren't getting pressure on -- he was finally open guys. Very well you know this tremendous touch and feel an -- he but you know he sort of wide open guys. That really have to question a secondary what the game plan was going in the crowd the line of scrimmage did not respect. Any thing in the top have receiver wives and of course Matt has not been a great job they get a president you -- -- -- Barry Sanders we have -- watch -- Marshawn Lynch. We was way down the -- would not go well unbelievable I think I counted nine tackles he broke a lot of awards animal arm tackle type faith affect Tracy Porter. And believe gives up -- to the ground and it gets up and really a poor effort he can probably made it tackle is Marcia -- cut back. But the great effort you know they haven't had a running game all season long never had a hunting -- rushed for all -- he comes in has the game of his career. On the big eight -- have a contract congratulations of the -- Marshawn Lynch Drew Brees the all time to try to do too much because. He's about running -- missed the game -- well not only two best running back but those two running backs that can really. Kerry team in short yard situations they did not have that presence than they lost you know them opportunities to advance the ball. Get knocked off the field not converting a third -- important towards so. Really that was I think as big a big is bigger about statement game. Is loosen up part of their running game everything that followed through Drew Brees -- that's when he showed up -- the defense fell -- Indiana the Jets beat the Colts low scoring game what about you the -- You know. I I I gotta say I cannot believe the Jets were able to pull this game out and not and Mark Sanchez not have a big game. He nearly blew the game and yet. Indian he was there may and short throws made some good consistent work at the end uses athleticism to keep yourself in the game when he really wasn't doing very good job on ball downfield. But the running game for the Jets defense -- -- -- watching it on not a big game statistically and merit throw early on. Is it enough for him to be a game manager Orton is you have to put this team on his back metaphorically. If they're gonna push that Whipple but you don't. They scored nineteen points and in one game on the road in Indianapolis who's been scored a point and you figure that can't happen again at least not. You know on the road again in New England again team scored 3031 point game you're gonna have to get some production. Out of mark there are probably left three touchdown passes on the field minimum. You can I don't think you're going to be able to settle -- Google Brian in the game and come out with a victory got to he's got to convert some of those attempts is the championship would -- noting the close and indeed they dealt with all the injuries this year Peyton Manning's going to turn. Thirty -- Mark on the other hand state did get a lot of experience some of these young guys Austin Collie who -- obviously if he comes back that's the big help. But did our ticket Tammy coming in for Dallas Clark and getting a bunch of experience it tied at Blair white. I think what they're really miss and Brian is not Peyton Manning he's not slowing down they don't have the -- stretch the field if anybody slowed down here. I think if Reggie Wayne they don't they admits that downfield threat they've had an office for awhile. Let's fire up its play clock on the island would he will look ahead of the divisional matchup starting with the Jets and the Patriots -- there. Two meetings this year bought. The Patriots destroyed new York at Foxboro is that he would have any impact on the playoffs in the coming up I think there's no doubt about the New England Patriots took on a dominant personality in -- latter half of the season. I think the last close game -- what they have that no one down the stretch there would be at the Green Bay Packers but and then a Colts maybe six weeks reporter but they were. 303540. Points a game coming down the stretch that's who the Patriots believe they are and you oil we're gonna see really how valuable I think this. The good bye week is the home playoff game in the divisional round. However -- did the wild card teams have to put so much in that game. There when they show up that next divisional opponent the rest of that -- healthy I think he even value in the pageant on Tom Brady with four cut down last on the Patriots played the however the Jets played. Our -- and Peyton Manning containing a what's it gonna take to do you think and a break. Well it's gonna feel different cat here because you know Blair white does not the inside receiver Wes Welker for the Patriots and you know they've got three solid tight ends over there. They've got so many moving parts they are -- hard offense the New England Patriots -- figure out -- The two best players for the Jets are out side in Darrelle Revis -- sort of commodity that's. It ends tied game in the passing game for the Patriots the drive seems nuts I think the Patriots have -- that reason. Okay let's move on Joe Flacco the -- hitting the road again taking on the Steelers. On Saturday in the third matchup this year that's what Joe has gone against Pittsburgh so far this season. In recent years -- Baltimore have much on the road oppose Malcolm well you just mentioned one of the guys Joe Flacco has been a and a whole lot their whole offense defense special teams what they do they're so well coast I think. Come into games and don't beat them -- they take that mentality on the road you've got a half to. Beat the American beat them -- you ought to get the Kansas City he. They're the team that self -- at home five turnovers. The Baltimore Ravens have a good enough defense they're gonna make you work the ball down field. If you make a day they may force some turnovers on it that's what's gonna be that cutting back -- so far. That that that that recipes were very well for them play these bloody teams split the series this year in the regular season what in the -- -- -- The last drive of the game no doubt -- gonna be a dogfight these teams are going to be -- not at each other for four quarters and it's gonna come down to who's got the ball last. Fortunately for the ravens' Joe Flacco -- approved in their first meeting this year. In Pittsburgh that he was able to get it done on the last drive them off we know Ben Roethlisberger has ice in that situation though I think it's gonna come down to what a great quarterback David dug into the game okay in the NFC the top to Falcons are gonna hold the Green Bay Packers Atlanta with so much ballots on -- If you were dog keep running that predate the what would you -- well I know for sure that in the first quarter of the game. The green bay Packers and get a heavy dose. About running game and Michael Turner and -- and knowing. I think you're gonna hit the Green Bay Packers unlike what they were able to get away with in the Philadelphia game not respecting the run. A ton of exotic blitz early he won't he that there's going to be a lot more -- Vanilla type defense that the load on the running game with real Dawkins is gonna open up part of a play action packed to the Falcons only beat the the pack -- three point in Atlanta in November Woody that the rematch a little bit of the game although now what this new found running game that the Packers have you know they lost that game by three points. The leading rusher for the Green Bay Packers was -- Aaron Rodgers who fumbled the ball in a quarterback -- -- going across the goal line. Game -- been much different had they had a running -- -- to -- -- -- see how that worked out -- the Green Bay Packers can have balance against one of the most balanced offenses in the league. Finally is advising Seattle Seahawks gonna take on the Bears Chicago and I love that they're probably irrelevant the -- but Seattle. Number twenty evidence all -- this year is Jay Cutler gonna pick them apart at this point what we August the Green Bay Packers could -- was doing great up until the packer game. And then the offense -- line woes reared its ugly head again and that's what we're left with sitting her daughter is that -- The offense -- for the bigger and bigger protect this guy if they do. He's had a phenomenal stretch of games -- hasn't made mistakes you start getting pressure on -- that's slipping the ball are a lot of people may have forgotten that Seattle beat the Bears in Chicago in October but not human and they get a dog I'd get in the playoffs you know there's no way Matt Hasselbeck are coming here to throw or report touchdowns -- Marshawn Lynch. I'm sorry but tonight it anywhere near 775 -- get that run defense for the Bears. I don't think it's gonna happen lightning in a bottle two weeks in a row this time on the road in Chicago coma not gonna happen not against my better -- -- Yeah. It is time for cuts don't lead on the island OT brought you by outlets in relied followed the Shell on Twitter at the island -- eight. And that's lead during the week we couldn't read it a good -- I'd be really good. Because look at the material that's number one yes Aaron Curry of the -- was dialed it now. He Gaylord Hollywood I had nothing to advance -- not not gonna try to of both that's true it. Obama was -- -- goodnight appreciate you twelfth man translates day. The off court I was rocket what you wish -- votes out but the raucous crowd really -- day thing didn't really work can't it'd -- -- Walt. Well no it didn't make ticked off the Baltimore Baltimore go right down our throat get a ticket they'll -- to game of the crowd right out of the game early but. That twelfth man there in Seattle something's thus I've been there and pre season game before -- -- -- deafening and pre season I don't imagine what's likened it in the in the in the playoffs. And obviously. We have a crowd behind you like that they step up the big moment and then the team comes through via the energy that lead that you and heating up but it's great to have. And it cool lags in Seattle but they really build and let the Nick Mangold of the Jets at they are up after Steve won -- -- this is goal. Really enjoy watching these games all lounging in my -- defense nothing better but come. He can we believe it's hard hitting journalism and homeless -- like Mike Wallace would do under the probe. What he -- when you're watching it to call before coming to work. But my wondering who Nam. Assuming I'm wearing them they won't probably be. Company parent I like a lounge around and PGA all day drinking coffee and watch some football out of UIQ and a bogey and out just being very comfortable you don't know you weren't make upright. Oh I was born in the does somebody get out of the words of our. Time now for a spot kick them on the online note eat wild card weekend in the book and I you know in a for a revenge with a pick. The Dodgers there's an oh you're gonna have to do that as we -- we actually I edited it. Now let's look back how did you do any at a Omar god well let's see the NFC alone. I was undefeated or maybe I'm scored upon an -- upon out of the embers of that yes I did you win a game. Oh and electorate to say to take -- -- -- I was with you but have a mud bowl pick everyday. We get that done on the road Obama doing that you bounce back in the AF rather than that tat tat tat between track and -- They have C tactic Decatur safety Sammy might -- -- -- the you can -- -- -- thank you I don't know what it's like as a monster out a my third call and Taliban and if -- -- right Kramer goes Oakland or in the playoff out they have and look at the standings on all of his right in the world ahead and got back on top you adult I've not giving them legal leg what do you need. What are we keep taking these games I got my game plan rolled up. Like you mortal pink strands them from back. You way to go and it's very contemporary reference and like -- I'll make our divisional think guarding. Didier at each yet the page no question here Patriots -- -- team and it felt at home with the rest you don't shutting my New York broke -- go with the chocolate like the Patriots at home how -- the -- at the dealer putters here's the deal I mean to pick for the Pittsburgh -- at home -- -- -- that game. About what the rest they get a like him at home at Heinz Field you don't go with the Ravens on the road you'll call to not let injuries he's bowl pick up and let them. -- jump over to the yet if you have about the Packers. Without it I go I have a bit on the docket bandwagon only here even on had been the number one seed. But with the rest at home Matt Ryan playing well good running game like they're all around team like you don't courageous I'm riding -- the pack I think that the most dangerous deep in this cup where they almost beat a -- he will call the regular season finally he'll walk up the Bears. You finally get a drink the coffee from Seattle to take them all over -- -- it. Big games in Chicago could -- -- I mean it has some wrath now it's deep. Hot cannot do it twice in -- -- -- month this month had just make sure we've bush I'll take the batters as well that's into the close of the most people's. As always we replayed it and hit it right here all the magic. The a year or -- mind that's gonna do for the playoff edition of the island -- but he black. Out what airlines don't -- we know war -- -- about a horrible pick for -- I'm Bryan Webber will you next week.
