Brent “The Hawk” Walker’s NFL Divisional Playoff Round Picks

Note from DouBle B: The site has been on a nearly six month unnannounced hiatus since I started my new job in Seattle. But it's not dead. I plan to return full-time in the future, just not quite yet. In the meantime I am accepting guest posts by anybody who feels like they want to talk about Sports, Video Games, Movies, Television, Music, or Whatever. Don't expect too many of them right away. But we got a good one today from my good buddy Hawk, who's making his picks for the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs:

Saints at Seahawks
1:35pm PST
Century Link Field

 
As a die hard Seahawks fan I will never pick against them. Especially in the playoffs, and certainly not against this Saints team.  I don't expect to mop the floor with them like the 34-7 beatdown we handed them last month. It should be much closer this time around, as Brees and company now know what to expect from the mania that is Century Link and the 12th Man.
 
But then again I wouldn't be surprised if we dominated yet again.  The Saints are not a good road team pure and simple. Don't give me this crap about how the monkey is off their back after they won the first postseason road game in franchise history at Philadelphia last week. That so called explosive passing attack only put up 26 against the Eagles who have the worst pass D in the entire league. The Saints defense is much improved under Rob Ryan this year, but they still have a long way to go. The Legion of Boom will hold Brees to 200 yards max.  Marshawn "the Beast" Lynch will will run all over their sub par run defense, and Percy's return will add another dimension to this inconsistent Hawks offense.

Colts at Patriots
5:15pm PST
Gillette Stadium

Jesus Christ, how is this Patriots team 12-4 with injuries galore?

Most will say its because Tom Brady is just so good. That's Bullshit. Statistically, he has had one of the worst seasons of his career. They benefit from a shitty division where 6 of their games are against the JetsDolphins, and Bills (none finished above .500), and they are so damn lucky it is ridiculous. Belichick clearly sold his soul to the devil to eek out so many barely wins against horrendous teams.

I must admit Andrew Luck seems like the real deal, especially after pulling off the second greatest comeback in playoff history last week against the (overrated) Chiefs. Unlike most Pats opponents this year, the Colts and Luck can put up points. But their defense is worrisome after giving up 44 points to Alex Smith and KC despite the electric Jamaal Charles being out after the first drive. Indy has been inconsistent all year, but seem to play better against good teams, hence wins against the Seahawks, Broncos and 49ers in the regular season. I expect a shootout but Brady just doesn't have the offensive weapons to keep up. Especially with his security blanket Rob Gronkowski out. Brady cries after yet again not winning a ring post spygate.

49ers at Panthers
10:05am
Bank of America Stadium
 
Aaaah this will be fun to watch. Two of the best defenses in the league will slug it out like two prize fighters, and mark my words, they will be talking shit the entire game. Cam and Kaepernick are two of the most exciting young Quarterback's in the NFL (but I will take my guy Russell Wilson over them any day).  They both still make terrible decisions when under pressure, while Wilson throws that ball away. The two QBS in this game will throw at least 2 picks each.
But, at the end of the day, Fuck Kaepernick. He cant handle loud crowds. Carolina hasn't been in the playoffs for a while and the crowd is gonna be rowdy.  The Panthers are gonna be hungry.  Kapernick will choke and lose this game late.

Chargers at Broncos
1:40pm PST
Sports Authority Field at Mile High
 
Many will argue that Peyton Manning is the greatest quarterback of all time.  5 MVPs and single season records falling all year, you can make that argument…well not really. He is possibly the greatest "regular season" quarterback of all time. But his postseason record of 10-12 or 9-11 or whatever it is, quite unimpressive. The stats dont lie: Peyton chokes in the playoffs. He has his whole career. That being said I dont think he chokes quite yet.
 
Not against the Chargers, who snuck into the playoffs on a blown call in week 17. Yes, the Bolts beat the Broncos in Denver a few weeks ago but they wont do it again. Peyton has never quite had the weapons at receiver that he does with his current team.  He will make a few bad throws maybe throw 1 pick but Welker, Decker, and the two Thomases, Demaryious and Julius, will bail him out. Rivers cant quite keep up with the highest scoring offense in NFL history
 
Broncos 31 Chargers 21

2013 NBA Finals Micro Movies for Games 1-6 to Get You Jacked for Game 7

There can only be one…

NBA Finals Micro Movies 2013 NBA Finals Micro Movies for Games 1 6 to Get You Jacked for Game 7

I've been really busy at my new job, but I'm starting the hang of things and hope to be posting more content on the site(meaning with more regularity)… soon. And even though I'm missing out on oh-so-important sleep I'm just so f####ing excited for game seven tonight that I thought I would share with you what I've been watching this morning.  

See…the NBA released these amazing Micro-Movies of the 2013 NBA Finals, and they show a behind the scenes look of both the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat as they've gone through what has been a fantastic battle. Legacies are at stake. Tim Duncan and his Spurs are already great, but with another title they would be legendary. LeBron still has plenty of years left in him, but each year without a title most def hurts his quest for consideration as the greatest player of all-time. Awesome.

Without further ado because my eyes are growing heavy, check out the 2013 NBA Finals Micro-Movies, starting with game 1:

The Making of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon

A great companion to last night's "Album of the Week" post…

Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon 2 The Making of Pink Floyds Dark Side of the Moon

Last night I chose Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon as my Album of the Week, and this morning I thought it would be a good idea to show you what really got me interested in the album in the first place:

What I'm talkin about is the documentary Classic Albums: The Making of The Dark Side of the Moon, which happens to be available to watch for free on Qello. And speaking Qello, I'm gonna go ahead and use their YouTube description of the doc:

Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" Classic Album is the creative story behind the masterpiece: "Dark Side Of The Moon". "Dark Side Of The Moon" transformed Pink Floyd from art house favorites to global, stadium superstars. Prior to 1973, Pink Floyd maintained a relentless gigging schedule and by the time they came to record "Dark Side Of The Moon" had already created many of the basic tracks. "Dark Side Of The Moon" would be the first Pink Floyd (post Syd Barrett) album where Roger Waters would supply all the lyrics around a concept: The Circle of Life. With the timeless qualities of its production and musicality, allied to the hypnotic evocation of its central themes – alienation, paranoia, madness, war and death, "Dark Side Of The Moon" would become the album that would dominate the 70's and 80's (with a record number of 741 consecutive weeks in the Billboard 200). This program takes an in depth look at the making of the 1973 album. All four members of the band Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright are featured in exclusive interviews. Roger, David and Richard play songs and demonstrate themes from the album. Alan Parsons (the original engineer) takes you through the multi track tapes giving a unique insight into the musical fabric of the record and the program is illustrated throughout with archive footage. "Dark Side Of The Moon" with its combination of great songs, inventive effects and one of the best known sleeves ever, tapped into the world's collective subconscious and became a landmark in Rock history and a truly Classic Album.
