Today’s Seattle Submission

1. Marshawn Lynch:

* 2006 – Accused of hitting his girlfriend, threatening to kill her, sexual assault / 2007 – arrested hit a woman with his Porsche at 3:30 in the morning and took off / 2008 – Arrested – for carrying a semi-automatic weapon in his knapsack / 2012 arrested for DUI / 2014 investigated for potential crime against a woman

* Imagine if he grabs his crotch on the one yard line and the officials throw a flag and take away a touchdown

* I heard a Seattle radio guy say that Lynch brings his own bartenders to bars and has someone taste his food before he will eat it

* There is a blend of marijuana named after him

* Has lost one fumble in last 650 touches

* Skittle sent Lynch a two year supply of his favorite candy

* Is 1-4 against Patriots averaging 53 yards a game / has one career TD

Every day this week I will be submitting a Seattle thought or analysis

1. Seahawks РMr. Pumped and Jacked РPete Carroll

* Pete Carroll looks younger than when he was the Patriot coach

* Pete Carroll is older than Bill Belichick – 63 to 62

* Pete Carroll isn’t saying a word about footballs after he left USC in violation-shambles and his Seattle players use PED’s like candy

* Seattle’s rank in the NFL per yards allowed under Carroll over his five years: 27th then 9th then 4th then 1st and 1st again

* Carroll is now 83-61 as an NFL coach / 83-19 as USC coach

* Charlie Weis threw him under the bus about a potential young lady staying in his beach front home in Malibu Continue reading Connelly’s Top Ten: The Countdown is on! »

It’s over. No… not deflate-gate, unfortunately.

What’s over is anyone trying to top Julian Edelman’s #TBT this week:

This certainly was a welcome distraction this week.

Super Bowl Football

1. Deflate-gate:

* I would bet at least 50% of the quarterbacks do something to the football and our just happy that they didn’t get caught

* I think the Colts know it’s a common practice but were trying gamesmanship to bother Brady (like the Red Sox checking Albert Belle’s bat)

* Paul Perillo wondered if this why the Patriots were running reverses and throwing bombs at the end of the game because they were trying to give snitches stitches.

* It was a cold handshake between coaches

* Ironically, if John Haubaugh was whining about the footballs – Bill Belichick gave the key reference to get him the job at Baltimore (Baltimore should be the last team complaining about integrity with their accomplices to murder statue, illegal trade between brothers, woman beaters (that’s plural), five arrests in 2014) Continue reading Connelly’s Top Ten: Patriots Haters Unite for Deflate-Gate »

Green Bay gave up a 16-point lead, a Championship Round record. There's always next season. (http://hd4desktop.com/)

The Conference Championships are complete, and the Super Bowl is set. Seattle completed a record-setting comeback over Green Bay, and saving Russell Wilson from a quarterback rating of literally zero. The Patriots slaughtered the Colts with a completely demoralizing second half in a rainy New England night later on to advance to face Seattle in Arizona.

While the Pats game didn’t do too much in our standings, the Seahawks sure did; with the Packers not walking away with the win, those who picked Seattle saw their stock on the rise quite a bit, particularly those who correctly guessed a total of five touchdowns in the game (and those who saw a minor day overall for the passing game).

With the shakeups, be sure to check below for the updated results, and come back in two weeks for the Super Bowl selections. Continue reading 2014-2015 NFL Playoffs Expert Picks: Conference Championship Results »

PATRIOTS OFF TO ARIZONA

MISC

* National Anthem – I don’t know who Pat Monohan is but great job by the crowd singing

* 51 degrees at kickoff in January – Al Gore was right! (not)

* Blue hoodie is daring  but is hot right now

* With Revis going out for a while that’s the third straight AFC championship game that the Patriots shut down corner has got hurt

OFFENSE

* Brady going to sixth Super Bowl

* Brady solid B+ game but that was another killer interception. They could have knocked them out in the first quarter. Continue reading CONNELLY’S TOP TEN: ARIZONA, HERE COME THE HOODIES »

Seattle faces off against a weakened Aaron Rodgers, but their opponents still won't make it easy. (http://images.nationalgeographic.com/)

The Conference Championships are here. The Patriots face the young upstart Colts, while the Packers visit Seattle as they did for the season’s first game. The round has a great mix of great offenses and defenses, which will certainly make for two great games.

For our picks, one game was easier to pick than the other, which caused a split vote from our panel. Either way, the defenses in Seattle are thought to make that game less of a shootout than their New England counterparts.

As before:

  • Successfully picking the winner of each game is worth two points.
  • Picking the total number of touchdowns scored by both teams COMBINED in each game is worth one point if guessed to within one, or two points if guessed exactly right.
  • Picking the total number of yards thrown in each game by WHICHEVER quarterback throws the most is worth one point if guessed to within 50, or two points if guessed to within 10, or five points if guessed exactly right.

So with that, check out the picks below, and come back later in the day after the games are finished for the results. Continue reading 2014-2015 NFL Playoffs Expert Picks – Conference Championships »
