After an epic 4 games last weekend we are left with 2 huge games on Championship Sunday. Now that the Matt Ryan has overcome his playoff-jinx, Atlanta look like they could be the real deal. However, they will only want to replicate their first half performance against Seattle, or risk being bowled over by the O/D phases of ‘9er-football. San Francisco’s defence is solid and we’ve now all seen how truly lethal the offense is when being run by Colin Kaepernick – watch out, he’s dangerous! NFC: 49ers @ Falcons (2000 – Sky Sports). Just as New England’s luck all but gifted them the bye-week, the Broncos loss means they’ve lucked-into hosting the Championship Game as well. Unfortunately for the Pats (& Gronk), they are only adding to their list injuries to key players, but even this is unlikely to harm the Pats’ offense. Their weakness lies in their defence, especially against a Baltimore offense with a now elite-looking Joe Flacco at the helm. AFC: Ravens @ Pats (2330 – Sky Sports).

    Go 49'ers!

    Go 49'ers!

    '9ers for me as well. Not sure if that comes across up there ^^ ;)

    If I am to get any fantasy points I need the 49ers and Patriots to meet in the Superbowl

    My tactic exactly - go big or go home (the gamble was needed after last week).

  • Noelinho20/01/2013 at 20:05

    I want the Falcons to win, but i don't think they will

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 20:06

    My tactic exactly - go big or go home (the gamble was needed after last week).

    I had no option since I had all 8 selections knocked out last week

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 20:07

    I only had Gronk left :S Despite having a 3x I didn't keep him in.

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 20:09

    I want to see a good game, but I need it to be Kaep to Vernon Davis all day long to rack up fantasy points. But I also have Julio Jones on the Falcons. I think the 9ers will win and I'm ok with that. I have no favorite either way, though.

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 20:11

    Wow!! Big play. No coverage!?

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 20:12

    Yay Julio!

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 20:13

    How can the '9ers' D have 4 points?

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 20:17

    How can the '9ers' D have 4 points?

    That appears to be points for allowing ~7pts only. That'll come down sure.

    Cheers :) Fingers crossed you'll not need to though.

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 20:24

    Ouch - that security guard needed pads.

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 20:25

    Not a lot of sense standing two yards from the side line with your back to the monsters

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 20:25

    Ouch - that security guard needed pads.

    yeah. ouch.

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 20:25

    Not a lot of sense standing two yards from the side line with your back to the monsters

    His job is to protect the players, so he watches the crowd.

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 20:25

    Very lucky he was hit so low that his feet came off the ground or that could have been very serious

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 20:25

    Not a lot of sense standing two yards from the side line with your back to the monsters

    He was going to tackle anybody heading to the field to cause a mischief. Ouch.

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 20:26

    His job is to protect the players, so he watches the crowd.

    He should be further away from the line

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 20:26

    He should be further away from the line

    Yeah, and have someone watching his back.

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 20:26

    Maybe he just needs shoulder pads with wing mirrors

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 20:28

    I am a jinx. Every team I pick players from loses

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 20:31

    Being honest about a problem is the first step to healing.

    I absolve myself from all blame for the Broncos problems. Their failure was caused by whoever decided to give up the blue shirts and go back to the effeminate orange ones. Elway had great teams for years and won nothing until they switched to blue and they immediately won two superbowls.

    Same with the Buccaneers. They were a total joke then ditched effeminate orange for dark red and all of a suddent they became a serious team.

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 20:32

    Do me a small favour and stop picking the team I am picking players from then....;p

    The answer to that is simple. You have to pick from teams that have no chance of winning

    Orange you glad they chose blue?

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 20:33

    Orange you glad they chose blue?

    I think they should be. They won nothing wearing orange and then they sign Peyton and switch back to it to make sure Eli has more rings than him

  • Jordan F120/01/2013 at 20:33

    Orange you glad they chose blue?

    White now I am green with envy that I could not come up with puns that can match Kai's....

    Politicians are easy targets. Good place to start. I'm watching one called "Yeti" now, Bad Lip Reading of Coldplay. I don't like them, so it works for me.

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 20:55

    Looks like we all need an SF comeback

    Yup. He had so many yards through the air and on the ground as well as his TDs, I couldn't resist. Looks like ATL have done their homework & prepped well.

  • Noelinho20/01/2013 at 20:55

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 21:08

    That last SF run has just given the ATL D something to worry about, and can give Kaep more time :) Points please.

    @Dameshek: Ryan threw three very dangerous passes in that brief possession. Falcons are lucky to be punting...

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 21:15

    Great run by Kaep

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 21:15

    23yards - his first 2 points.

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 21:15

    Maybe his 2nd 2 points.

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 21:16

    YES!

    Nice. And leaves the score for a possible player of mine.

    YES!

    Are you getting excited about something?

    "Vernon Davis is back." Music to my ears.

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 21:17

    Both are on my fantasy team. I need them to keep doing that.

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 21:18

    "Vernon Davis is back." Music to my ears.

    He has scored me 7 points already. Would have been more if the guard/tackle had not tried to throttle a Falcon while Vernon gained 30 yards

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 21:19

    woohoo!

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 21:20

    I am now on 10 points for this game. Didn't expect that 13 minutes ago

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 21:28

    Holding them to 3 may be key here... ohh wait.

  • Noelinho20/01/2013 at 21:28

    May I suggest, that was a bit easy?

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 21:29

    Another TD

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 21:32

    So ATL 24, SF 14 at halftime. NOT what I expected at all.

  • Jordan F120/01/2013 at 21:32

    Done. Had network problems. got them fixed just in time for halftime?

  • Jordan F120/01/2013 at 21:33

    Darn only 27 points in that half. Half of them coming from Davis....

    Sexual assault.

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 21:58

    You know what, I think they do. Talent, money and fame doesn't give you a free pass as they might like to think.

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 21:59

    That's why I dropped him.

    I kinda thought that talent and stage might mean he got targeted still.

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 22:01

    You know what, I think they do. Talent, money and fame doesn't give you a free pass as they might like to think.

    They spend most of their life being told how great they are and have people prepared to do anything they want. I guess they are not used to people saying no to them and meaning it

    The Patriots don't really give many turnovers away... might be asking a lot for big points on turnovers for the Ravens!

  • Jordan F120/01/2013 at 22:20

    Well that stunk. 4 and out after a recovered fumble...

  • Jordan F120/01/2013 at 22:22

    My mistake.

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:23

    There he is!

  • Noelinho20/01/2013 at 22:23

    That was a brilliant catch from Crabtree, he didn't have much room

  • Noelinho20/01/2013 at 22:25

    He was down, surely.

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:25

    Challenge that one.

  • Noelinho20/01/2013 at 22:25

    Throw the flag

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:25

    Ball out before the line. TO

  • Noelinho20/01/2013 at 22:25

    Oh, don't throw it

  • Noelinho20/01/2013 at 22:25

    He lost that big time

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:25

    2 wasted TOs by SF

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:26

    We'll not see him again then.

  • Noelinho20/01/2013 at 22:26

    BUT, Atlanta will get it on the one yard line. I want a safety :-)

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:28

    Matty almost dropped it again

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:28

    3rd & 6.

  • Noelinho20/01/2013 at 22:29

    punt

  • Jordan F120/01/2013 at 22:31

    Come on SF, you should be winning this game now....

  • Noelinho20/01/2013 at 22:35

    now we're in business

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 22:36

    TD Gore

    Points!!!!!!!

  • Noelinho20/01/2013 at 22:36

    nice block on the play

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 22:36

    Points!!!!!!!

    Yay!

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:37

    TD Gore

    Glad I've picked one player who getting the touches, yards, and scores!! 20pts so far

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 22:45

    How did that pass get completed? Or did it?

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:45

    Ball moved`

  • Noelinho20/01/2013 at 22:45

    looks a catch to me

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:46

    Looked good, then the replay makes it look less good.

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 22:46

    He lost control as it went under his chest. Incomplete

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 22:48

    Harbaugh goes nuts as expected after that decision

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:48

    That Harbaugh reaction!

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 22:49

    That Harbaugh reaction!

    That needs the bad lip reader treatment

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 22:50

    That needs the bad lip reader treatment

    I've stepped away for a second, but I can imagine this. hehe :)

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:50

    HARBAUGH SMASH

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 22:51

    I've stepped away for a second, but I can imagine this. hehe :)

    Doubled up like he had been shot, smashed his hands into the ground and got up ranting like a lunatic. Standard Harbaugh

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 22:53

    I'm rooting for ALT. How did that happen?

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 22:54

    I'm rooting for ALT. How did that happen?

    or ATL, either one.

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 22:54

    You want my fantasy team to totally fall apart

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 22:54

    You want my fantasy team to totally fall apart

    hehe oops.

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 22:55

    oh man! Big play.

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:55

    TO on downs!!!

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 22:55

    oh man! Big play.

    That's the game

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 22:55

    That's the game

    I'm in shock.

    *buffering*

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 22:56

    The contact is why Harbaugh is screaming at them to get a play off

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:56

    I can't see the clock or the timeout counters...

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 22:57

    I can't see the clock or the timeout counters...

    1:04

    ATL 1 TO

    SF 2

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:57

    Plenty of time, 3 downs to run off <80s (minus the timeout)

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 22:58

    GameCentre is dead.

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 23:00

    Gore still collecting the points.

    ATL might have ~10s

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 23:00

    That's time enough for a Hail Mary.

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 23:01

    Gore still collecting the points.

    Just as well. Vernon Davies scored almost all his points in the second quarter. DOne nothing since

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 23:03

    Why did Ryan throw to the middle? Crazy

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 23:03

    I'm happy with that half of the SuperBowl matchup :)

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 23:03

    Atlanta played so much better than I thought they would today, for some reason. I didn't give them enough credit.

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 23:03

    I'm happy with that half of the SuperBowl matchup :)

    Me too. 39 points

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 23:03

    I'm just doing Bad Lip Reading in my head as they talk now.

    Nope. I had a team full of Packers and Broncos

    57! + 132 from last week, which is lame.

  • Jordan F120/01/2013 at 23:22

    Well, that's 63 points for me from this game. Either Rice or Welker gets big points in the next game or my goose is cokked.

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 23:23

    All well, 307 points in total going into this game....

  • Noelinho20/01/2013 at 23:29

    I have those, plus Brady

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 23:29

    I do think that SF and Pats in the Superbowl is too predictable and boring - franchises who've had so much success in the past. None of my teams are in this. Not to be a wet blanket on the whole thing. I hope we have another good game here.

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 23:29

    I have those, plus Brady

    Good. Hopefully good points for us both, then.

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 23:30

    Oh yes, I have Hernandez too

  • Kai20/01/2013 at 23:32

    Hey, before 2000, the Patriots didn't have much success!

    True. But it seems like they've dominated so much since....

    I'm just having a nostalgic moment for teams I'd rather see here, but they just weren't good enough when they needed to be. That's the way it goes.

    Cool, - downfield lateral passing.... I remember when the Eagles had two great QB's and they used to have one of them be a RB in certain formations, and the one QB would lateral a pass to the other QB who used to to bomb it downfield.....

    No, Tebow should have been the QB! Cannae have been much worse than Sanchez!

  • Will^20/01/2013 at 23:44

    No, Tebow should have been the QB! Cannae have been much worse than Sanchez!

    Did I say they were playing Sanchez at #1? They should've traded him away for someone else / promote their #3.

    Not sure which format to choose, whether it's this type of open roster (with player values), or the traditional NFL format of ~12 teams, with a real Draft etc.

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 23:58

    Not sure which format to choose, whether it's this type of open roster (with player values), or the traditional NFL format of ~12 teams, with a real Draft etc.

    A real draft would be interesting but would probably get fewer entries

  • Steven Roy20/01/2013 at 23:59

    Gotskowski gets me more points. It's all about me

  • Will^21/01/2013 at 00:00

    A real draft would be interesting but would probably get fewer entries

    I do find that format more intriguing, but we'd get more participants with a more standard budgeted/value-based selection. have to work out where is best before next September then.

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 00:01

    Gotskowski gets me more points. It's all about me

    +1. Well, +6, actually.

  • Will^21/01/2013 at 00:02

    Right guys, I'm off to bed. Busy day tomorrow. Which only really means switching to radio... I'll probs still be int he comments for a while.

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:14

    I thought that was the referee who caught the punt for a second

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:18

    Good return by Welker. Didn't think he would get anything like that distance

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:19

    Never understood how intentional grounding is not allowed but spiking the ball to stop the clock is.

  • Will^21/01/2013 at 00:23

    It's directly after the snap so is allowed because it's a designed play. not having intentional grounding would let the qb off making a bad throw while under pressure, so the d might not get the chance to sack / Int etc

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:25

    It's directly after the snap so is allowed because it's a designed play. not having intentional grounding would let the qb off making a bad throw while under pressure, so the d might not get the chance to sack / Int etc

    To me they are the same thinking. Spiking gives them all the advantages of completing a pass and getting the receiver out of bounds without having to do it, running the risks that go with it and taking the time it does to get that play to happen

  • Will^21/01/2013 at 00:28

    Taking a knee similar: the handoff, the tackle etc.

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:28

    Taking a knee similar: the handoff, the tackle etc.

    Taking a knee is just like being tackled. They may gain a second at most.

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:29

    Ravens are just carving up the Pats D

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:31

    TD Ravens. That has been comings since the first succesful play if this drive when they ran from their own 3 to 22ish

  • Will^21/01/2013 at 00:32

    What will Brady's answer be?

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:33

    What will Brady's answer be?

    Hopefully lots of passing yards to Welker

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:38

    Great start. Patriots make three yards on the play and someone gives them another 15 with a soft shot to the head

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 00:40

    I found Fido, you guys!

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:43

    I was worried about Fido being out all night

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 00:43

    I was worried about Fido being out all night

    hehe

    When Brady was changing the play it's all I could think of him saying.

  • Will^21/01/2013 at 00:43

    Yey for Wes

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:44

    TD Pats

    That is what Brady is going to do in reply to the Ravens TD

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 00:44

    Yey for Wes

    and for those of us who have him. :)

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 00:45

    Ray Rice is up to 30 points already on my list? cool.

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:45

    Where are you going to put it then. You could have it in a bathroom instead of candles

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 00:54

    I think it would get annoying. You can have a flat moon or a globe moon but a moon with right angles is always going to look odd

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:57

    Referee tackled Brady

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 00:58

    I think it would get annoying. You can have a flat moon or a globe moon but a moon with right angles is always going to look odd

    I think it's cool, but it would be helpful to regulate the amount of light it gives out.

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:58

    I thought Brady was just going for the hard count and would call a time out rather than run the play

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:59

    I think it's cool, but it would be helpful to regulate the amount of light it gives out.

    You just need a black cloth to cover part of it

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 00:59

    Just realised the snap went past Brady straight to the RB

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 01:00

    Ravens smacked themselves down.

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 01:03

    That was a mess. They had 12 seconds and wasted 8 getting organised to spike the ball and only have 4 seconds left

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 01:03

    Yes, Harbaugh, Brady kicked him, but it's too late now.

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 01:04

    Yes, Harbaugh, Brady kicked him, but it's too late now.

    and could've broken his leg.

    It would be interesting to have two brothers coaching the Superbowl teams

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 01:06

    It would be interesting to have two brothers coaching the Superbowl teams

    Do they both talk like that? "I'm not worried about anything! We both know it's gonna come down to the wire!" as if the reporter asking him what he's worried about in the game so far is the stupidest possible question any human could've dreamed up.

    I hate that attitude.

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 01:07

    I hate that attitude.

    The reporter is just doing his job. Play along.

  • Will^21/01/2013 at 01:07

    Tom Brady is 67-0 in his career at home when leading at halftime

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 01:08

    I hate that attitude.

    Standard sportsman nonsense. Never admit to being worried about anything

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 01:08

    Tom Brady is 67-0 in his career at home when leading at halftime

    That's fairly overwhelming odds

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 01:09

    yes, bravado. It always impresses me when people are respectful of everyone's role in the show, from the waterboys to the refs.

    Would be good. I have 32 points in this game so far

    Ravens need a score this drive. They can't get more than a score behind

  • Adam B21/01/2013 at 01:19

    Also remember they were basically a score down at half time (or 10 seconds after) last week

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 01:20

    Ravens need a score this drive. They can't get more than a score behind

    If they don't score on this drive their D needs to shut down Brady

    MASSIVE 3rd down conversion there

    Ravens TD

    Ravens TD. Great catch.

    TD Ravens. Pats are in trouble now

    OK, I've seen enough. This isn't going to end well.

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 02:01

    OK, I've seen enough. This isn't going to end well.

    A TD and a two point conversion levels the game. ot over yet

    That has to be a 15 yard penalty

    Boys, boys... get up.

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 02:07

    oh god, 22 knocked himself out, yes?

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 02:07

    oh god, 22 knocked himself out, yes?

    he was a ragdoll after he hit the Raven.

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 02:07

    oh god, 22 knocked himself out, yes?

    Yes. It has to be a penalty for a head to head tackle

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 02:08

    That was the messiest and most prolonged pile that I've seen in a long time. Having a man down in the middle of it was just bizarre and scary.

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 02:09

    Whew.

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 02:10

    Ouch. I don't need to see that again.

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 02:11

    Another Raven's TD!

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 02:11

    I want to see that one again

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 02:12

    Definitely a good TD. On the first view it looked like his shoulder touched down first and it was half in and half out

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 02:18

    Ridley out with head injury, not surprisingly. A long time ago (in the bad old days) everyone would've said he 'got his bell rung' and he'd be back in.

    At least they treat concussion seriously. I saw some reports a week ago of the damage they found in junior Seau's brain from concussion. He and some other players left their brains to science

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 02:20

    Brady should just have run that

    That's what I mean. I'm so glad they are taking it seriously now. Families have lost too many dads, brothers, uncles to that long term brain damage.

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 02:23

    Pats D has lost every point they gained earlier

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 02:27

    I yelled!

    Intercepted in endzone by Ravens!

  • Steven Roy21/01/2013 at 02:46

    Another interception. Brady struggling because of his lack of mobility

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 02:47

    Wow. I am happy it was the Ravens and not the Pats after all.

    Patriots offence was totally non-existent in the second half

    there is one reason, it's not f1.

    can i maybe guilt trip anyone who's planning to write one (or two) nfl posts, to also think about an f1 topic of their choice too. kind of an off-topic/on-topic kinda deal? not at the same time, but like an "i owe you x1 f1 guest post" vibe?

    i do love me some guest posts, but we've not got time to balance out all the work you guys are putting in, ourselves at the moment.

    i may have confused you.

    so, say you're planning to write a few superbowl posts. do that and we'll publish them. as always.

    but, as a follow up, think about writing something (anything at all) about formula 1. just so casual sidepodcast readers don't start wondering if we gave up on f1.

    if that makes sense? normally we try to do that, but we're flat out until feb.

  • Kai21/01/2013 at 03:04

    I think it's fair on an F1 site to have F1 material...purely logical, Captain. When do you want a plan in place, Mr C? That will give us a timeframe to see what everyone wants to do.
