EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – Happy Monday. And then there were two. The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles are the last two teams standing in these NFL Playoffs. Of the two games, one was ugly and one was a nail-biter. Throw in some J-E-T-S stuff and voila, here is today’s slate: NFL Playoffs Sleeper & Thriller, NY Jets Find An OC.
49ers at Eagles
This was the sleeper in NFL Championship round. Buddy Diaz’s Iggles are going to the Big Game again, after smoking the QB-cursed 49ers in the sleeper. I have to say, if you watched the Eagles at all this season, they have been the most dominate team in the NFL by far. They have looked dominate in all facets sides. In the NFC Championship, they appeared once again on another level than their competition. The defense knocked Niners QB Brock Purdy out the game, which meant fourth-string QB Josh Johnson (remember him Jet fans!) was at the helm. Then he got knocked out, so a wounded Purdy had to act like he wasn’t hurt. It was ugly… Meanwhile, the Philly offense was flying. Jalen Hurts continued his campaign to be the NFL MVP. He was doing the whole shebang: throwin’, runnin’ and findin’ targets and just making the whole offense click. Final score 38-7
Bengals at Chiefs
This game was a rematch of last year’s championship game – and was a thriller. Unlike last year, the Chiefs managed to win. KC started out hot but the Bengals kept slowly grew into the game. Eventually it was tied at 20 in the 4th quarter. After exchanging punts, the Cheifs finally got the ball on their own 47-yard line. In 30 seconds, courtesy of a debatable unnecessary roughness call, the hosts were in field goal range. Kick made. Thank you for coming. God bless and have a good night.
Jets sign Nathaniel Hackett as OC
The Jets interviewed 15 candidates and finally decided on Hackett.
-He was so terrible he was just run out Denver.
-The Jets are hiring a loser fresh off the loser pile.
Now keep in mind that Bill
Belichek Belichick was a loser his first attempt at being a head coach and that the situation in Denver is a very unique mess. Hackett has a distinguished career as a OC, where he help Aaron Rogers win 2 MVP trophies and also took Blake Bortles and the Jacksonville Jaguars to the AFC Finals. If he can get that far with Bortles and an in-his-prime Leonard Fournette, then he maybe able to get something out of Zach “Is Wack” Wilson and Gang Green’s 3-headed RB monster of Breece Hall, Bam Knight and Michael Carter.
New York also hired an new offensive line and RB coach in Kevin Carter. Now they just need to draft a couple of decent linemen.
