I was once a NFC boy. I loved Marshall Faulk’s giant white mouthpiece and the Rams’ bright yellow and blue swirls—the same colors as my elementary school, Brett Favre taught me how to love football. Tampa Bay’s pirate ship gave me Warren Sapp nightmares.
The AFC seemed too adult, too professional, too serious. Rich Gannon, Tim Brown, and Jerry Rice were old. The Patriots were foreign. Peyton Manning was disgusting. The Steelers were horrifying, stealing a Super Bowl from Seattle.
Then the Houston Texans came around. I became a man. Now I’m an AFC man who spends three hours every Sunday (and as much as I can on Sunday night) watching Deshaun Watson and sucking down the Titans, Bills, and Chargers. Yet when I watch the NFC, I think about the past, the way things were, and what I have become as I’ve sailed through the course of time.
On this episode of Battle Red Radio, Matt and his good friend Taylor preview the NFC Wild Card Round of the 2020 NFL Playoffs. Topics include John Wolford’s offense, Seattle playing down to their opponent, Doug Pederson’s decision to rest his starters versus Washington, if my Football Team can terrorize Tompa Bay, and Mitch Trubisky’s wet and wild month.
Let’s start the show.
