Well, might as well get this started. Who shows up? I'll make a preview Sunday or Monday. I'm headed to the Red River Rivalry on top of my recent loss of motivation haha. Atlanta better decide real soon if they want to be in the playoffs.

I would be pulling hard for Atlanta, but after that showing Friday against Pitt, I'm just scared to pick. I thought y'all had this under control. I need a little reassurance that the Rabbs have this setback handled.

Do y'all need a little therapy or does Matt have it handled?

I'm voting for the Atlanta that played Tatum. If it is the Atlanta that played Pittsburg then I am not as confident.

Atlanta will win. If the Pittsburg that played Atlanta played Tatum again........teams have bad games and then rebound. But, I think some posters believe that Atlanta just had a bad night and not giving Pittsburg much credit. Pittsburg had an extra week to make some minor changes and get a couple players healthy. Atlanta still wins by 21.

Pleasant Grove rotates running backs in pretty regularly. They have two backs, #25 and #22 can fly. #20 is a bowling ball and can get the tough yards. The passing game is a different story. Big receivers that cant catch and a QB who overthrows about 75% of the time.


Their defense plays good for the first half.

You play who you play in the playoffs. Doesn't matter


So would you rather finish in position to play Tatum right off the bat or try to get a different matchup for the first round?

I disagree. Sometimes you may have a key player or players out and need a little extra time to get them back and hope for an "easier" opponent. Sometimes you would prefer a softer opponent to keep polishing your game. Anyway, I was just wondering if you had a preference on an opponent for rd 1.
