NFC Championship Game

I want to start off by saying that I am biased.  I’m a die hard 49er fan through and through, and that I dislike the Seahawks (but I admit I’m starting to like them more and more being a follower of a sport and not a fanatic).  I dislike the Seahawks only because of Pete Carroll.  I thought the way he left USC was terrible, but those are the brakes, and even now how he has changed his coaching style and influenced his players is winning me over.  With all that being said, I’m officially nervous as crap for the game.

I’m nervous, not because of the “12th Man”, not because of the way we have been dominated in Seattle, not even because of the talent Seattle has.  I’m nervous because of the 2nd Coming JIM HARBAUGH.  If you have read anything on this site you know I think Harbaugh is the second best coach in the league behind Empreror Bill Palpatine Belicheck.  So why the worry?  Well I worry because I think Harbaugh will not feature Frank Gore like he should.  He has been limiting Gore all year so he would be fresh for these games.  Harbaugh has been smart enough to know he didn’t need Gore to run 20+ times in the regular season to win.  When Gore carries the ball 20+ in a game in the last 2 years the 49ers are 12-1, when carrying under 20 times a game 15-8, including 19 carries in the Super Bowl (when everyone thought they should have ran Gore in the red zone during the final drive).  Now it’s time to unleash Gore.  Harbaugh scares me too because he has a bit of Don Shula in him, where he has fallen in love with his star QB ala Shula and Marino.  Harbaugh might try to feature Kaepernick to show the world and doubters (Joe Montana) that Kaepernick can make plays totally from the pocket with precision and accuracy, just like last year in the Falcons game.  That is not how you beat the Seahawks.

If your Seattle you should feel confident that you are playing at home with a team you have dominated at home.  Even with the subpar play of Russell Wilson (and everyone back off the man, he has no WRs, Kaepernick with no Crabtree subpar, Luck without Wayne subpar.  Young QBs need a go-to-guy in the line up to make them comfortable and better) you have to feel great that you know your guy can win the game down the stretch with either his legs and arm.  The key for Seattle will have to be one of the WRs/TEs stepping up and making plays.  What no Beast Mode?  You will need that too, but Lynch gets his yards vs the 49ers when they only have 6 in the box.  If a WR can become a threat to keep the safeties and outside linebackers honest Lynch will have lanes and then the Seahawks are tough to beat.  Also Carroll doesn’t have to out coach Harbaugh to win (where Harbaugh has to out coach Carroll to win), but Carroll has to make sure he doesn’t make a coaching mistake (look at last years Divisional Playoff game vs the Falcons.  Carroll made a few questionable coaching decisions, Hell “Big Play Ray” wrote an article about it “Pete Carroll Is Who We Though He Is”) that will cost them a game.

I know this will be a beat’em up game.  This plays in both teams hands, the question is who will make THE PLAY!  My homer attitude is going 49ers all the way, but the follower in me has to be honest and pick the…  THE 49ers to win it.  I feel like it is our time and not only that, I think the refs will call more Pass Interference or Holding calls than usual against the grab happy Seahawks ( I though the league got rid of the Belicheck way, of holding secondary, to favor Manning’s Colts?).  I know I know, but this begins a Dynasty like no other #QuestforSix!!!

Welcome to the Boom Boom Room, sit back relax, grab yourself a drink, (non-alcohol depending on what time of the day it is) and enjoy the show.

So here’s how I feel about Kobe calling out Dwight Howard; I UNDERSTAND IT.  Howard hasn’t played with a sense of urgency all season and clearly doesn’t know what’s on the line playing in LA.  Los Angeles is a big market and an organization that is known for championships.  When your team is stacked with a Nash, Mamba (Kobe), Gasol, and World Peace fans expect rings.  However, you can’t question a guy’s injury (some people’s pain threshold is stronger than others), or inability to play through it.  That is where Kobe was wrong in his quote.  I personally think that a Josh Smith and Ivan Johnson for Howard makes sense for both teams, lowered expectations for Howard in regards to winning a ring and Josh would be on a team that would appreciate his talents.

Onto my thoughts

  1. Throw the Flag! Damn Dwight now your daddy speaking for you, man up son.
  2. Did Antwan Jamison say that Jordan at 50 could average double digits? “Ninja Please, If you don’t Stop Now” (in my best R. Kelly singing voice)
  3. Love @MikeHillESPN’s comment on LBJ, “LeBron has become like NEO when he figured out the Matrix.  Everything around him appears in slow motion while he dominates” true statement.
  4. John Giannone (Hockey Reporter) is the toughest sideline reporter in sports.  Puck to the face still kept working.  Let me see you do that Craig Saeger while rocking a loud ass suit.
  5. Inside the NBA is the greatest sports show out there period.
  6. As a Knicks fan, an Iman Shumpert to Suns deal makes no damn sense.
  7. I like Miami (The U) to make the Final Four.  And maybe Ray Lewis will get God on their side to win it all.
  8. Indiana what kind of defense was that at the end against Illinois?  Looked like everyone went to sleep, and wasn’t smart enough to fall asleep in front of the basket.
  9. Melo is a BEAST!  But the haters will say he’s a selfish and a chucker #Melo4MVP
  10. So if the 49ers lose in the playoffs next year, will Kaepernick get even more tats?  Unbelievable

Make sure you tip your bartenders, servers, and remember these are just my thoughts right or wrong this is how I’m feeling at the time, so tell me what you think.

Through the eyes of “Big Play” (My own Monday err sometimes Tuesday Morning QB)

I’m shocked as hell at how well Joe Flacco played not only in the Super Bowl, but the entire playoffs.  Elite or not 11tds 0ints is not a fluke (Matty Ice its time to RISE UP! Your game).  Flacco went through Luck, Peyton, Brady, and the new Phenomenon know as Kaepernicking (kiss the bicep), I don’t know about you, but to me that sounds like $100 million dollar contract.  Now on to my thoughts:

  1. Chris Culliver (#29 on the 49ers aka Aint wit that sweet stuff) was Beat Meat, just fall on Jacoby Jones IDIOT!
  2. Jerome Boger (NFL Referee during Super Bowl) was Deer Meat.  Remember there was a controversy about these refs, a lot of refs in the league felt that some members of this crew was unworthy of officiating this game #Gradechanging
  3. 49ers Corners got exploited! Revis to the 49ers makes a lot of sense we need draft picks (I’m a Jets Fan) and they have 13, yes 13 picks in this upcoming draft.
  4. Damn Beyonce fine.
  5. Damn Beyonce FINE!!!  And the game was cool too.
  6. I’m glad the lights went out (which saved the 49ers) before the Ravens turned it off their damn selves.
  7. I’m Happy Ray Lewis career ended with a Super Bowl win.
  8. I’m Happy Ray Lewis career ended PERIOD.  Just to much talk about him the past 2 weeks.
  9. Phil Simms was TERRIBLE calling the game last night.
  10. I thought the GO DADDY commercial with Bar Rafalei was NASTY! Man, my daughter was watching.
  11. Big J did predict the 49ers would win the Super Bowl in Jim Harbaugh’s 3rd year, so look out for that.  Big J also said that the 49ers would blow out the Ravens, so take that as you will.

*Bonus* I believe Ed Reed will retire.  Don’t know why, just have a feeling.

Thanks for reading Ray’s Boom Boom Room, these are just my thoughts right or wrong its how I was feeling at the time.  Grab a drink (non-alcoholic depending on the time) and tell me what you think.
