NFL Wildcard Game Predictions January 9, 2021

 It's Wildcard weekend and it's time for playoff football are you ready. I know I am as playoff football is always exciting to watch. Let's take a look today at Saturday's games.

First up is Indianapolis vs Buffalo which is an interesting game, Buffalo is letting in around 12,000 fans I heard. If this is true the Bills Mafia should be out in force in this one. Indy must play ball-control offense and limit the number of times Josh Allen gets the ball. In my opinion, that really is the only chance Indy has to keep it close. Right now Josh Allen is the hottest quarterback in the AFC and slowing him down is tough so you must limit his touches in the game. We like Buffalo 34-17 in this game.

The next game up is the Los Angeles Rams vs the Seattle Seahawks. Jarred Goff is hurt and no one knows if he will start or play at all. If Goff does not play I really cannot see the Rams having must of a chance in this one. The Rams' powerful defense can keep Seattle at bay but not the whole game. We like Seattle and Russell Wilson 21-17 in this one.

In the nightcap, we will see the Tampa Bay Buccaneers traveling to Washington to take the Washington Football Team on. Tom Brady has gotten better as the year has gone along and Mike Evans might not play for the Buccaneers. Even without Evans, the Buccaneers have plenty of weapons. The Washington Football team is great on defense, but horrible on offense. The only chance Washington has is to pressure Brady and get turnovers. If that does not happen look for it to be a route. We like Tampa 34-7.

Where Does Tom Brady Play In 2020?

Everyone has there take on where Tom Brady is going in 2020 to play football, and I am no different. We have heard such teams as the Titans, Colts, Chargers, Raiders, and Dolphins as possible landing destinations for Tom Brady. Could he really leave the New England Patriots and take his talents elsewhere?

Many people feel that he will, but I am not one of those who believe that idea. Tom Brady has been with the Patriots for a long time for good reason. Brady knows the system and the Patriots build it around him to get the most from him. If Brady leaves will he be able to find a system that will utilize his talents like the Patriots do? I highly doubt if there is a team in the NFL that will be able to do it like the Patriots can.

If I was a betting man look for the marriage of Tom Brady and the Patriots to continue for a few more years. Both parties benefit from staying together, so do not look for any changes, but we will see. Many people think he will leave, but just do not see that happening.

Is Andrew Luck A Franchise Quarterback?

Andrew Luck has been told he will be the Indianapolis Colts No.1 pick, but is he a franchise quarterback the Colts need. That question is a tough one to answer for a number of reasons. Andrew Luck has all the tools to be great in the league, but so did many other quarterbacks coming into the league. Another thing that Andrew Luck will have going against him is he will always be in Peyton Manning's shadow no matter what he does. The only chance he will he will have to escape it is win multiple Super Bowls and that is many years away even if he wins any at all. The Colts are not very good and I think Luck will have a hard time to find his groove. Yes, Luck is a franchise quarterback, but the question is will he have enough talent around him ever to see that happen.

Is Andrew Luck Pushing Peyton Manning Out The Door?

Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck most likely will be the choice of the Indianapolis Colts and he has made it cleared he would like to start as a rookie. Now he also said that he would like to learn from Peyton Manning as well. Well, Andrew Luck you really cannot have it both ways. Could Andrew Luck's desire to start push Peyton Manning out of Indianapolis? It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.

Today, Peyton Manning was cleared to start playing again, so that should complicate it even more. The Colts could have two very good quarterbacks, but only room for one player. This reminds me a lot about the same situation like they had in Green Bay. Brett Favre was eventually let go and I think that is what will happen to Peyton Manning. Andrew Luck is younger and the Colts will look at their future and Peyton will not be around forever. As much as it pains me to say this I just do not see Peyton Manning finishing his career in Indy!

What Do The Colts Do With Peyton Manning?

The Indianapolis Colts have a tough decision on their shoulders these days. Do they keep Peyton Manning or save money and cut him loose? A roster bonus is due Peyton Manning soon, so they will make that decision soon. Manning has indicated he will be ready to play this coming season, but the Colts also plan on drafting Andrew Luck out of Stanford as well. This means decision time will be tough for the Irsay family and the Colts. Peyton has been like a son to them and cutting him loose can be a double edged sword for this organization.

The decision will basically come down to one thing for the Colts do they want to start a new era or are they happy with the old one. When they fired their coach they could be leaning towards a new era which would mean Andrew Luck. If the Colts go that direction they will have part of their fan base that will not be very happy. The only way they would not would be if Luck brought them a Super Bowl. In my opinion, I think they should keep Peyton Manning, but only time will tell how this will work out. No matter what, it is a tough decision for the Irsay's to have to make.

Colts Need To Make Sure Peyton Manning Does Not Take The Field this Season

Peyton Manning has been itching to get back in the lineup as he has resumed throwing the football. For the Indianapolis Colts they are looking at a season in which they most likely will not win a game. This is something that Peyton Manning does not like one bit. Hopefully common sense will prevail and the Colts will not march him onto the field this coming season. Many times, teams rush players back and there is no need to put Peyton Manning on the field this season.

For the Colts keeping him on the bench makes a lot more sense. They will get the No.1 draft pick and a player that can help their team for years to come. Sending Peyton Manning out on the field could get him hurt. Let him miss a whole season and come ready in 2012. I would rather have a losing season than to lose Peyton Manning for another year. Hopefully, the Colts will not try to get a win by sending out their star and risk another senseless injury.

Will We See Peyton Manning This Season?

Indianapolis Colts fans are not use to an 0-2 start, and as the losses mount up the question will be is Peyton Manning going to play in 2011. If the Colts continue to lose and no improvement is made the Colts may just shut down Manning for the year. Once the Colts drop out of playoff contention why take a chance with Manning. The Colts brought in Kerry Collins because they knew Peyton Manning could miss most of the season.

The chances of us seeing Manning goes down with ever loss. I doubt if we will see Peyton Manning this season unless the Colts have a chance to make the playoffs. The Colts won't risk his health just to win a few games. The way it looks right now we will probably not see Peyton Manning suit up and that is disappointing for the league and Colts fans everywhere.

Are The Colts Screwed Without Peyton Manning?

With Peyton Manning having his second neck surgery many Colts fans are probably down in the dumps. They should not be as it is not the end of the world. Peyton Manning will be back, and in reality Colts fans do not want him back until he is 100 percent healthy anyways. Now where does this leave the Indianapolis Colts and their chances in 2011.

Now I will admit the Colts are not as good when Peyton Manning is not under center, but it is also not the end of the world either. Kerry Collins is more than capable of getting the Colts in position to win week after week. He knows what it takes to win games and will do whatever it takes to get those wins. If Colts fans give Collins a chance they will find out that he is a capable back-up that will fill in nicely until No.18 gets back under center. The Colts will be fine, and another playoff appearance should also be within reach.

2011 Indianapolis Colts NFL Preview

In this 2011 NFL Preview we will take a look at the 2011 Indianapolis Colts and where they could end up this season. Just two years removed from A Super Bowl appearance the Colts want to get back to the big dance, but must stay healthy. One of the biggest problems the Colts had last year was injuries. If they want to do anything this season they must stay healthy.

Peyton Manning who had off-season surgery will not be ready when camp opens up. You can be rest assured though when the season rolls around he will be under center. The Colts retained K Adam Vinatieri and will make a strong push for RB Joseph Addai as well. The key for the Colts offense this season is to stay healthy. They cannot continue to hope Peyton Manning can bale them out. Guys like Dallas Clark, Austin Collie, and Pierre Garcon must stay healthy. If that happens the Colts will be fine on offense.

On defense the front seven for the Colts are not bad led by Dwight Freeney and Gary Brackett. Their problem is in the secondary and that is a big issue. Bob Sanders is no longer a Colt and the secondary is not very good right now. Unless they play better this season the Colts could give up a lot of pass plays down the field. The Colts need to bring in some experienced players to help out the younger ones in the secondary.

Overall, the Colts should again win this division as they still have Peyton Manning. As long as you have him at the helm you always have a chance to do something special. The problem is on defense and I do not know if they can overcome that deficiency to make it too the Super Bowl.
