NFL WILD CARD CONFIDENCE PICKS 01/15-16-17/2021

  • I really don’t like doing these play off games.  It is so hard to tell if a lower rank team will play over their head.  Or a higher ranked team will be over confident and play badly.   Then you have the reason it is called “WILD CARD”.  The officials.  The most unpredictable people on the field.  Of course they have many things they are trying to watch for at the same time.   But I really think, sometimes, it depends on their attitude at game time, which may change at any time, even several times during a game. (BUT it does seem they always favor the HOME team.

WASHINGTON:  Is considering a name change, (vacating their prior name, which was, as i see it; a tribute to our Native American heritage.  I don’t really get the RED “skin”, part.  But, a tribute to the way our Native American’s way of life.  The way they fought for their land and lifestyle ).  Would we not be of the same mindset if we were invaded, with our land and lifestyle at stake.  Most likely not.   HOWEVER. (warning, political statement ahead  I am neither REPUBLiCAN, nor DEMOCRAT.  i have no political affilitation in any way shape or form. I do not find a place for POLITICS in the governing of our U.S.A.)   Football is like a small war.  The football is a “BOMB”,  with one team trying to drop the “BOMB”,  in the rival’s base territory, (the goal line).  Part of the war is to strike fear in the hearts of  the opponents.  

MY OPINION:  What could bring more terror in the hearts of anyone???   The Washington PELOSIS.!   Of course they would be left looking for another name after she is dispensed with.  I do think their new name should reflect the area they are in.  Washington once had a MLB team named SENATORS.   Perhaps the name “CAPITOLS” ?
