Found December 31, 2012 on Football Extra Points:
The Seahawks and Redskins game may be the most exciting of the weekend with two dynamic rookie QB's leading the way. With the Dallas and Redskins game over, the playoff picture is now clear.  Here's a look at the Wild Card Match-ups. The AFC teams were locked-up before Sunday but there was a lot of movement left with the seeding.   AFC Playoff Picture:  #1 Seed -  Broncos - With the Texans loss, Peyton Manning took Denver to the Top spot in the AFC.  The road to the Super Bowl goes through Mile High. #2 Seed - Patriots - Tom Brady has a first round bye, is anyone surprised.  This team has to play defense if they want to go to another Super Bowl.  AFC Wild Card Game - #6 Bengals at #3 Texans The Bengals started off slow but turned it on toward the middle part of the season.  They have a good passing attack and BGE can run the ball well enough keep defenses honest.  The problem for Cinci is that their defense is bottom third in the league.  They a...

Seattle far different from 2010 playoff team

Pete Carroll was thrilled to be in the postseason but knew it was a mirage. Two seasons ago, in his first venture back in the NFL from the college game, Carroll guided the Seattle Seahawks into the postseason with the dubious distinction of being the only team in NFL history to win a division title with a losing record. Seattle at least showed itself worthy of the playoffs by upsetting...

Seattle's playoff road history not a pretty view

While they are one of the hottest teams going into the postseason, there's a lot of past playoff futility for the Seattle Seahawks to overcome - nearly three decades worth. Seemingly unbeatable at home, the road - especially in the postseason - has been a different tale for the Seahawks. It's been 29 years since Seattle last won a playoff game on the road. They've lost...

The Redskins' Unsung Heroes

I've been a Redskins for most of my 37 years on Earth.  I started rooting for them as a 7 year old and haven't stopped.  Needless to say that I was a bit giddy watching my Redskins win the NFC East for the first time since 1999 ... when I was a young newlywed all of 24 years old.My wife got me a Griffin III jersey for Christmas.  She also got my 5 month old son and almost...

Griffin, Morris lead the Redskins into the playoffs

Tonight, the Redskins hosted the Dallas Cowboys in a de-facto NFC East championship game, and the Robert Griffin III led team ground out a a victory, their seventh straight, to win the division for the first time since 1999. The Redskins didn't throw the ball all over the field, but Griffin was efficient when he was called on to throw. Alfred Morris led the Redskins'...

Mike Shanahan says Kyle Shanahan will have to wait until the offseason to interview for HC jobs

During his press conference on Monday, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said his son, offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan won’t interview for any head coaching jobs until once their season is over now that they’re in the playoffs.“At least my opinion, at least this is my feeling when I was an assistant, it’s not time to interview during the season,” Mike Shanahan said...

Redskins “Seriously Considering” A Contract Extension For HC Mike Shanahan

Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports that the Redskins are “seriously considering” opening up negotiations with Mike Shanahan regarding a contract extension. Shanahan is under contract through the 2014 season, but the team is reportedly weighing whether or not to address his future this offseason, or put it off until next year. Maske’s sources seem to think that a...

Rams look to stay undefeated in NFC West

(AP) -- The Seattle Seahawks need to defeat the St. Louis Rams to have any shot of winning their second NFC West title in three seasons. Even if they don't finish atop the division, the Seahawks could still be riding a wave of momentum into the postseason. Seattle will look to extend its longest winning streak in five seasons to five games on Sunday when the Rams try to finish...

Redskins’ “other” rookie leads team into playoffs

At my fantasy drafts back in August and September, whenever someone was hemming and hawing over who to pick, I often rather arrogantly shouted out “Alfred Morris is still available.” I generally was rewarded for my trash talk with some confusion, a couple of guffaws (unless it was the seventh or eighth time I brought up his name) or perhaps some ridicule. The drafter would usually...
