How bout these wildcard games over the weekend? Wild is certainly an understatement. We had some crazy finishes, one blowout, a choking missed field goal, & some bonehead decisions. Hats off to the Chiefs for FINALLY winning a playoff game since 1993. On the flipside, Brian Hoyer of the Texans had one of the WORST quarterback performances I've seen in a NFL playoff game in all my 29 years. The Steelers/Bengals game was exactly what many of us predicted...nasty & extremely physical. But those final two minutes of the game was as ridiculous as it gets. Seriously, guys have to be better composed than that. Marvin Lewis, who's now 0-7 in the playoffs as head coach of Cincinnati, may not return next season. & I think he shouldn't. Much like ten years ago, Pittsburgh traveled to Cincinnati & drop another "L" on their bitter division rivals in the postseason. Fast-forward to Sunday, & Vikings kicker Blair Walsh has a few hits out on him from some fans. But the guy missed a 27-yard chip shot after making 3 longer field goals during the game. The Seahawks better be thanking Jesus. Adrian Peterson should be at fault, too, but we;ve seen this story before with him. & after getting off to a fast start, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins really can't say "YOU LIKE THAT?!"...at least until next year. The Packers, lead by Aaron Rodgers, take care of business & are now moving on. For the first time in NFL playoff history, all four road teams won this past weekend. That said, each of them now have even tougher missions next weekend. Join Rocket at a special date & time...Monday, evening, January 11 @ 6:30pm as he analyzes the games, the aftermath, & Marvin Lewis's fate status. "The Rocket Sports Breakdown" podcast on Blog Talk Radio is where you wanna be. Rocket Nation, get ready for another WILD power trip.
