Who do we host in the divisional round?
 
Bengals

Colts

Ravens

Who would you prefer to play? Why?

Ratboy 12-31-2012 06:23 PM

I think Bengals pull the upset.

baja 12-31-2012 06:28 PM

I think the Bengals too but I'd like the Colts. That would be tantalizing

Doggcow 12-31-2012 06:28 PM

Yeah, unfortunately the Bengals. I think they're the best team out of the bunch, too.

What do you care? You didn't even want us to finish with the #1 seed, remember?

I'm starting to believe everyone is right when they say you start some of the most worthless threads on here.

Marshall Dumervil 12-31-2012 06:30 PM

Bengals for me. I'd like to see Indy knock off the patriots.

I assume you mean the divisional round? The conference game would be for the AFC Championship and a spot in the Super Bowl. Until proven otherwise, I assume the Patriots will be coming to IF@MH for the AFCCG.

Between the Bengals, Colts & Ravens, I'd just say bring 'em on. The Broncos can take any of the three of them, because none are complete teams.

* The Bengals have a solid defense, but their offense is not as strong. Especially since there are reports of injury concerns for Benjarvis Green-Ellis. If he's down, or slowed, the Bengals becomes one-dimensional in favor of the Broncos defense. Of the top players on the Bengals offense, I'm most concerned about their TE, Jermaine Gresham. Peyton and crew can beat the Bengal defense. It won't be pretty or glorious, but they can put up enough points.

* For the Colts, I'd predict the Bronco offense has to jump on them early. Andrew Luck has an established tendency to hold the ball too long. If the Bronco offense can put up enough points to force the Colts to throw, there will be sacks and Luck will make mistakes -- especially if Champ and Chris Harris can slow down Reggie Wayne and take TJ Hilton out of the game. The Colts defense is nothing special. If the Broncos do get a sizable lead, they absolutely cannot let up and go conservative to run out the clock. Luck has also proven his ability to live up to his name with fourth quarter comebacks.

* For the Ravens? Again, their defense is not the Giant Purple Monster that it was a few years ago. Flacco is similar to Luck in that he'll hold the ball too long and make mistakes under pressure. We saw that just a couple weeks ago. Ray Rice will be the player to watch and red-dog, if Jim Caldwell starts calling screens and draws to slow the Bronco pass rush. He's savvy enough to do it, and a big part of the reason his predecessor was fired was that he didn't use Ray Rice enough.

Between the three, right now I'd say the Bengals will be the most likely to give a tough game in Denver. But that's why they play the games, no?

Yes I did Thank you I changed it.

I assume you mean Sports Authority Field @ Mile High? J/K

Bronco Boy 12-31-2012 06:47 PM

The Colts easily. Rookie QB coupled with a porous defense would make for a pretty easy win IMO.

If we HAVE to say it by the corporate name, Sports Authority sounds WAY better than Invesco Field...:strong:

Br0nc0Buster 12-31-2012 06:55 PM

With the way the Texans have been playing lately, I am not sure it would be an upset if they lost to the Bengals

Pick Six 12-31-2012 07:20 PM

The Colts will be the sentimental favorites. Just for that reason, I would rather not Denver be the ones to kick them out of the playoffs...

Dr. Broncenstein 12-31-2012 07:23 PM

Colts. Cassius Vaughn = Roc Alexander 2, electric boogaloo.

baja 12-31-2012 07:27 PM

Remember the question is two parts;

who do you think we will host.

who do you want us to host.

PaintballCLE 12-31-2012 07:37 PM

We will host the colts first (Manning vs colts) Then Manning vs Brady....... then we play the vikings in the SB (Comeback player vs MVP) because RG said so.

Hamrob 12-31-2012 07:43 PM

Well, I believe the Ravens and Texans will win their games. So, therefore, I believe we will be playing the Ravens in the divisional round of the playoffs!

This is impossible. Both teams on the decline. At LEAST one will get clipped.

I think I just farted.

Jekyll15Hyde 12-31-2012 07:58 PM

I think we will host cincy because if they win (which I think they will), we have to play them. 3-6 game decides everything for the 2nd round.

I would prefer to b-more. They scare me the least

12-31-2012 08:21 PM

secret, not tellin

TheChamp24 12-31-2012 09:34 PM

Yeah, it wouldn't be a shock to see both the Texans and Ravens lose.
Colts are weak though, I think Ray Rice will tear up that defense.

I honestly think we'll be hosting the Bengals, I think they beat the Texans.

Rohirrim 12-31-2012 10:03 PM

Bengals. They're the lowest seed and we already beat them 31 to 23 in their own house.
