Default The Sports Guy's Prediction

Bill Simmons on ESPN's Grantland article, he talks a little more before this Prediction, just thought is was kind of funny and wanted to share.

http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/...ognostications

TEXANS (-4.5) over Bengals

Only one person could screw this pick up: Matt Schaub. This makes me feel better: The Bengals haven't won a road playoff game in the history of the franchise (dating back to 1968). Their last playoff win happened in January 1991 when they beat the Houston Oilers before losing to Bo Jackson's Los Angeles Raiders. As reader Rob from Boston writes, "The Bengals have not won a playoff game since destroying Bo Jackson's hip. If you were God and you created Bo Jackson, perhaps the most naturally gifted athlete ever, wouldn't you seek retribution against the team who destroyed those gifts? Proof? Dave Shula, Bruce Coslet, David Klingler, Akili Smith, **** LeBeau, Kimo von Oelhoffen I could keep going. Give the points and take the over on Marvin losing a challenge on an irrelevant play." I concur.

The Pick: Houston 27, Cincy 17.

Simmons has always spoke negatively about the bengals. Not surprised in the slightest.

Is Bill Simmons the husband or Richard Simmons?

More useless drivel from the media. Guess it is a good thing the games are played on the field rather than with their pens and paper.

So Schaub could be the only thing that goes against the Texans and arguably the best defense in the playoffs will have nothing to do with it. Comical most of these guys are. Just like many fans they just cannot seem to move on from the past.

Why does Bill Simmons have such a big following? I still to this day don't really understand it...most of his jokes are lame and considering he's an "expert" on the NBA some of his opinions are ridiculous.

With that said i find myself catching the BS report when bored and find it entertaining. Mostly because I find his guests the real experts..........

It pains me but I am going to say

24-13 Texans

I am just not sure our offense has the power to put up enough points. If Pac Man returns a punt it may be different.
