HAWK’s NFL WILDCARD ROUND PICKS: 2017 Edition

Finished the regular season 7-9, Which puts my season record at 137-117-2. But just like that it is the best time of the year: The NFL playoffs.

DoubleB may disagree with me as he believes that March Madness is the best time of the year. He has a point, and a good argument, but in my humble opinion NFL playoffs get the edge, just slightly. That being said I still have gone to Las Vegas for March Madness for the last seven years, and it is a damn good experience.
So let’s rock and roll. ITS WILDCARD TIME!!!!

Saturday Night Wildcard games
#5 Oakland Raiders (12-4) at #4 Houston Texans  (9-7)
(-3.5) (O/U 36.5)
1:35 PM

Let me preface this by saying that I respect Raider fans as i’ve said many times before.
This is the first time in 13 years that they have had a winning season. Facebook wasn’t even invented last time they made the playoffs, yet “Raider Nation” has stood by their team the whole time.

Hawk’s 2016 NFL Picks: Giants at Eagles


530PM 
New York Giants (10-4) at Philadelphia Eagles (5-9) (-1.5) (O/U 42.5) 
A battle of two teams going in opposite directions here. New York has won 8 of the last 9 while Philadelphia has lost 8 of their last 9 games. A Giants win here will clinch at least a wildcard playoff berth. They also have an outside chance of winning the NFC East and getting the 1 seed if they win their last two games and Dallas loses it’s last two games, since they swept the Cowboys this season.

Man!
Rough start to the year as I followed up my 7-9 week 1 with a 6-10 week 2, but come on?
No one the planet predicted that the Buccaneers, Jaguars, Raiders, Redskins, and Browns would all win in the same week. I must improve on this 13-19 record now!

Dallas Cowboys

Last season Dallas went 12-4 and won a playoff game for only the second time in the Tony Romo era, before losing the next round to the Packers in the years most controversial call:

Cowboys fans are back to their cocky, over confident selves again, but they have reason to be optimistic. Romo had the best year of his career, leading the league in completion percentage (69.9) and passer rating (113.2), running back DeMarco Murray led the league in rushing yards…. handily with 1845, the next highest was Le’Veon Bell at 1361, damn near 500 yards less, which is unheard of.
Oh wait, they let Murray go which means injury prone Darren McFadden, who for the most part has underachieved his entire career will most likely get the start. Him, Lance Dunbar or Joseph Randle, who aren’t exactly household names.
Pundits are quick to say that because Dallas has the best offensive line in the league, their running game will be just fine. I’m here to tell you that won’t necessarily be the case. These are significant downgrades at the position. I don’t care how good your line is you still have to have a back that has enough strength and vision to succeed. Murray had it but I don’t know about the guys on the current roster.
 
Other issues that will face this team will most certainly be a questionable pass defense and having a roster that is chock full of trouble makers. Aside from being notoriously immature and whiny Dez Bryant was at one point accused of assaulting his mom and Pro Bowl D Lineman Greg Hardy was involved in one of the most sickening domestic abuse scandals in NFL history. Dallas also signed Undrafted rookie OT La’el Collins, who was projected as a first round pick before becoming a suspect in the murder of his pregnant ex girlfriend, but obviously he was not convicted.
It doesn’t stop there though. LB Rolando McClain was arrested for resisting arrest, Joseph Randle was arrested twice in 4 months. Once for shoplifting and once for drug charges. He was also investigated for domestic abuse.
Unless Darren McFadden explodes this year and Dallas has one of the best counselors in the world on their staff all signs point to a down year for them. Sorry Cowboys faithful but I expect another 8-8 year.
