Well the group of 4 by in large lived up to the billings. We asked who were the best teams in the league and by weekends end the answer was pretty clear. Or at least theoretically
1) Green Bay Dominated Atlanta - Aaron Rogers, who once upon the time dropped like a rock in the draft, sliced and diced Atlanta's D while Mattie Ice looked pedestrian at best. I'm not entirely sure where Atlanta goes after a loss like that. Green Bay was hyped as a Super Bowl contender at the start of the year and they are rounding into shape.
2) Chicago steamrolled Seattle - Ignore the final score...this game wasn't that close. By the the time Seattle woke up the game was out of reach. It will go down as either one of the great mysteries or disappointments how New Orleans lost to this Seattle team. Just perplexed.
3) Jets beat the Pats - Fatty McFatster waddled his Jets to victory. The Patriots couldn't get their offense rolling until later. I think a bigger thing is that the Patriots made a ton of uncharacteristic mistakes. 66 yards of penalties, a Brady INT, dropped passes, Belichek pooped on the sideline. Not sure if the week off hurt the Patriots, the Jets got in their head, the position of Mars/Jupiter but this was a very sloppy Pats team.
4) Roethlisberger Defeats Karma- You'd think at some point Karma would catch up to Roethlisberger. My head still hurts when people say Ben led the Steelers to two super bowls. Theoretically that's correct but I don't think I've ever seen as bad of QBing on a winning team by Roethsliberger in a Super Bowl ever. Nonetheless Roethslisberger has the Ravens and Karma's number and he's moving on.
At the end of the day we have 2 very physical games awaiting us for the Championship. And if your me you hate both of the teams in the AFC.
As MMBSD pivots to college basketball season it's time to check in with the new #1 team in the country. Ohio State...better known around these parts as the Mattavests. Yes Jared Sullinger is that good. I dare anyone to remember a better Freshman low post player in the past decade, As important but under the radar is Freshman PG Aaron Craft. He's outside shooting, playmaking and defense are actually just as important as Sullinger's command of the low post.
The other major conference undefeated team is Kansas. For those unaware Kansas has won 69 straight games at home (that's not a joke btw but yes I giggled at that fact). KU is also led by the Morris twin brothers (Marcus and Markieff). The 6'9 forwards are scoring and rebounding machines. Keep on an eye on these two as they may be headed to the March Madness Finals....
