I think the Steelers peaked too early and they struggled towards the end of the season - and the same may apply to the Chiefs and Bills who continued to win for the most part albeit narrowly. Perhaps if you have an excellent season record towards the end it opens the door to complacency and the rhythm goes. I'm particularly concerned about the Chiefs in that department, not only because they were a shadow of their earlier selves towards the end but also because they've not had a competitive match due to the bye.
I just don't think you can turn form just like that so I think they are there for the taking - but you never know with Mahomes and Hill.

I caught some highlights but to be honest I think everyone was a bit 'off' early season, not surprising really given the disruption from Co-Vid and other things. But in terms of a post season performance I really can't remember anyone being that incoherent since the '49ers in the early post Montana and Young years. TBH when I said I thought the Browns might take them I envisaged a tight game won by maybe a field goal not a match where the Steelers would effectively throw the whole thing away inside the first quarter. That missed snap leading to a TD is gonna be on 'Epic Football Fails' compilations for decades.

Quick question, why the fuck do they call it football?

I know Martin. They call Rugby football as well and it baffles me. As to the American Football, I really annoy my friend Mark (he's from San Francisco) by calling it "Rugby in pads with frequent committee meetings." I suggested it's because Americans can't concentrate on anything for more than three conscecutive minutes and they need a commercial break after every play so they can grab another cheeseburger. Maybe that's why Trump was so effective at selling his message. After all a Tweet is about as much as an average yank can read in one go. Very Happy

Bonceys Bills won easily against the Ravens and look like they'll be playing the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game, this could be the year Boncey!

In the NFC the Packers looked good against the Rams and will be tough to beat. I can see them beating whoever wins the other game and going to the Superbowl.

Watched a bit of the Saints vs Bucs game last night and expected the Saints to win but woke up to find the Bucs are through! 

Boncey's Bills will be hoping Mahomes can't play next week due to his concussion as if that's the case, then they are bound to win.

Brady still has the class.
Chiefs managed to see the game out OK without Mahomes but he would be a massive loss if he can't play in the championship game.
Packers seem to be sneaking under the radar still, which is surprising seeing as Aaron Rodgers is playing well ATM. Genuinely can't pick an overall winner as it stands - although I'm sure Bonce must be feeling confident Smile

Hard for a Wanderer to be confident about anything these days. Got a feeling the cup will be raised to my lips, only to be brutally dashed away.

Watched Mahomes concussion over again and TBH I'd be surprised if it keeps him out of the Championship game. That said the Chiefs don't look the team they were, but the defence was great against the Browns running game and their biggest asset is still Andy Reid.

Tom Brady. What a record!
OK - Tampa are owned by the Glazers who also have Man United  in their portfolio, but nonetheless what a job Brady has done - his 11th Superbowl albeit with a strong team around him.
Personally I'll be supporting whoever wins the other game - and TBH I prefer the Chiefs - but if the Bills win it I'll be right behind them in the SB.
Which shows I prefer Bonce to Manure Smile
Unfortunately we're in the middle of moving house so I won't be able to stay up for the game. Good luck D.

Mahomes toe and recovery from concussion will both be tested... but never bet against Brady.

Watched all of the NFC game and thought the Bucs defence was fantastic again especially in the 2nd half when Brady threw 3 interceptions. Still can't see them beating the Chiefs though.

Tend to agree. We knew the Chiefs had a very pacy attack and Reid's tactical nous but it looks like their defence has stepped up. Never know though.

Unlucky Bonce but the Bills will be back as they have a decent team and a good young QB. Watched it up to the Chiefs going 21-9 up and thought they had it in the bag from then.

Mahomes is a future Hall-of-Famer if he stays healthy... cool and collected... a pleasure to watch.

I'm going to be honest and say I think it's gonna be another Brady win. The entire Bucs line-up seem inspired just by his presence and his receivers have done an incredible job alongside some of the best ground play I've seen in years. I don't think he's got much personally left in his tank so to speak but it doesn't matter, the rest of the offensive line seem determined to be awesome for him. Chuck in that iron defence and I just can't see them losing.

He is a great watch but although he has ridiculous skills, half the joy is watching him execute Andy Reid's plays. Expect the unexpected!

Anyone other than me staying up this Sunday to watch the Superbowl?

I think the Chiefs will just edge it but it won't be easy against the GOAT and their great offense.

Four in our house. Wendy because she thinks Brady is an inspiration given his age. Matt and myself because we both want the Bucs to win after the evil Chiefs beat our beloved 49ers last year and Hannah because she genuinely likes American Football although she doesn't follow a specific team.
