Thanks for your efforts @Macca…must admit the tipping comp was a rather pointless exercise for me though 😉

See you in the post-season. 

Don't worry, there were a total of 8 of us who scored 4 points or less.  It was a weird regular season with so many teams falling away whilst others who were unlikely, shone

Week to week, a number of the favoured road teams failed to deliver

As for our tipping, DS & GtB showed us how to do it!  So the points were there to attain (kinda, sorta)

Schedule Week 1 Playoffs

Sun 8.30am Seattle @ San Francisco

Sun 12 15pm Chargers @ Jacksonville

Mon 5.00am Miami @ Buffalo

Mon 8.30am NY Giants @ Minnesota

Mon 12.15pm Baltimore @ Cincinatti

Tues 12.15pm Dallas @ Tampa Bay

Chiefs & Eagles bye

More later but the post season tipping comp works as follows (by the way, newcomers are most welcome)

Just post up your scores or just the winners with a margin of victory

e.g Miami 15 Buffalo 23 or

Buffalo win by 8 (or 7 - 12)

 

Week 1 - each win (home or away) is worth a point with a bonus point added (for each match) if your margin of victory correctly falls within one of the winning 3 brackets (1 - 6, 7 - 12 or 13+)

Week 2 ... 2 points per win with 2 bonus points available for each of the 4 games

Week 3 ... 3 points per win with 3 bonus points on offer for both games

Super Bowl ... 5 points for the win with 5 bonus points on offer

A second chance at glory after most of us had a disastrous regular season at tipping!

Congratulations to @DeeSpencer on winning the regular season tipping competition!  Well played!  Now a dual winner alongside @Clintosaurus & @Gorgoroth

Silver medallist @Go the Biff remained within striking distance for most of the season and did lead for a good amount of time until DS made his sustained run at the title. @layzie fought on gallantly for the Bronze!

As for the rest of us - Ugh! (but don't forget about the post season tipping comp)

So how do we reckon the playoffs will play out?

Are KC & the Eagles set up to get through to the SB? Outside of those 2, who are the next best 2 or perhaps there's more than 4 genuine hopes to win out? 

Vikes, 49ers, Bills are likely but how about TB and Tampa?  Cinci might get hot and how 'bout them Cowboys?  Jags should progress past week 1

KC are primed, they have weapons all over the shop and no longer rely on Kelce/Hill combo. Will only get stronger in the run game over the coming weeks. 
Bills have dropped back a bit imo, but still a threat if Allen gets healthier.

Bengals are the ones hitting form at the right time.

 

Eagles have been great, can Hurts stay healthy enough t9 see them through?

Niners D is great and have carried them for years, less so with McCaffrey but I think as always QB is their weak point vs the top D’s.

Vikes are similar, Cousins can be great or average and their WR core is very good, but their D doesn’t stack up as high as say the niners. 
For me it’s a AFC win, just a matter of who.

I sound like a broken record each year but thanks again for the regular season tipping comp @Macca it is great fun (even though winners were scarce for myself this year). 

Bring on the post season!

Looking ahead, I think it's going to be one of the best playoff series in years when it comes to excitement, surprises and matchups. There's some brilliant teams in there but no absolute dominant standout. The closest thing to that would be KC and at that stage they would be my pick to win it, the offense has changed a bit since they won it and in many ways you'd have to say it's stronger as a whole. Juju has been an excellent pick up and they have the QB with the tools and now experience to do it. You don't lead total points and yards for nothing.

The Bills are well placed too but hoping Allen is healthy and we'll see how they come out of this emotional period.

The Eagles have been great but there have been some cracks in recent weeks and will Hurts lack of games lately hurt them? Still giving them the nod for best NFC chance. 

Niners have been one of the more in-form sides, the front 7 is close to the best but I'm not sure our secondary as one of the few times we came up against good weapons (D Adams) we were smoked. Been very impressed with Purdy but there are weaknesses there to be exploited by defenses. Obviously thus being the team I watch the most I'll be the most critical.

I hate to say it but don't sleep on the Cowboys, it's an even more balanced team going in to these playoffs and this loss they just had to Washington you'd have to think this puts a rocket up their you know what. Terrorising defense and roster wise I have them on par with SF. 

The Bengals are playing very well at the moment and I can see them catching fire again.

In playoffs I'm all about quarterbacks and "Who is your QB and which QBs are you facing?" For this reason the AFC has a few collision courses but also for this reason I fancy the SB winner coming from there.

@layzie I’ll sleep on the cowpatties, they are an average play off team with a good D with some very good players on it, but Dak has failed multiple times and McCarthy is a coach who can’t win playoffs. With what he had a GB he should have won multiple. 
The Pattie’s will go no where.

If you get time, Gonzo, post up some margins for the bonus points on each match (1-6, 7-12 or 13+)

If not, I'll make an executive decision and make them all 1-6.  Not sure anyone is going to mind (unless they do mind,  haha!)

Anyway, nice start to a Sunday tomorrow with a couple of good match-ups.  2nd game promises to be close but the 9ers should take care of business at home

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form

    GAMEDAY: Rd 10 vs West Coast

    It's Game Day and the Demons have returned to the site of their drought breaking Premiership to take on the West Coast Eagles in what could very well be a danger game for Narrm at Optus Stadium. A win and a percentage boost will keep the Dees in top four contention whilst a loss will cast doubt on the Dees flag credentials and bring them back to the pack fighting for a spot in the 8 as we fast approach the halfway point of the season.

    WARNING by William from Waalitj

    As a long term resident of Waalitj Marawar, I am moved to warn my fellow Narrm fans that a  danger game awaits. The locals are no longer the easybeats who stumbled, fumbled and bumbled their way to the good fortune of gathering the number one draft pick and a generational player in Harley Reid last year. They are definitely better than they were then.   Young Harley has already proven his worth with some stellar performances for a first year kid playing among men. He’s taken hangers, k

    OVER YET? by KC from Casey

    The Friday evening rush hour clash of two of the VFL’s 2024 minnows, Carlton and the Casey Demons was excruciatingly painful to watch, even if it was for the most part a close encounter. I suppose that since the game had to produce a result (a tie would have done the game some justice), the four points that went to Casey with the win, were fully justified because they went to the best team. In that respect, my opinion is based on the fact that the Blues were a lopsided combination that had
