Super Bowl LI – Patriots V Falcons

Posted in Super Bowl 51, SuperBowl with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 31, 2017 by hiberniabar
The Super Bowl is always one of the highlights of the sporting year and this coming Sunday, February 5th @ 6:30pm EST, Hibernia will be rocking (moment of silence please for our beloved Steelers, we nearly got a shot at our 7th title). The 51st edition of the event between the New England Patriots (16-2) and the Atlanta Falcons (13-5) is set to be an extremely exciting affair.The New England Patriots have been the dominant team in the AFC all season long and they will go go into Super Bowl 51 as clear favorite, but they will face a tough test against an extremely talented Atlanta Falcons side.

Super Bowl LI is scheduled to be played at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas on Sunday, February 5, 2017. It will be the second Super Bowl to be held at NRG Stadium, the other being Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004, which also featured the New England Patriots; and also the third time the Super Bowl has been played in Houston, after Super Bowl VIII in 1974 was held at Rice Stadium.

The event will mark the 50th anniversary year of the first Super Bowl, which was played on January 15, 1967. Super Bowl LI is the Patriots’ ninth Super Bowl appearance, the most Super Bowl appearances of any team. It is also their second appearance in three years and their seventh under the leadership of head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady. The Falcons are making their second appearance as a franchise and will have the chance to win their first Super Bowl, having lost in their only previous Super Bowl appearance in Super Bowl XXXIII.

The Super Bowl LI halftime show will be headlined by Lady Gaga.

Make sure to get in early and as always no reservations, boxes are all sold out so good luck to everyone who snagged one or many and lastly don’t forget our final score pool, only for customers present on the day- Winner takes all.

Steelers V Patriots 1/22/2017

A preview of the AFC Championship Game matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots:

When: Sunday, 6:40 p.m. ET (CBS)

Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Mass.

Line: Patriots favored by 4½

1. Strength on strength: During Pittsburgh’s nine-game winning streak, the offense has excelled. Behind the QB-RB-WR trifecta of Ben Roethlisberger, Le’Veon Bell, and Antonio Brown, the Steelers have scored an average of 25.9 points since Week 11. New England’s defense, meanwhile, may not wow you with star power, but it led the NFL in the regular season in scoring (15.6 points per game allowed). Specifically, the matchups between Patriots corner Malcolm Butler and Brown, and linebacker Dont’a Hightower and Bell are worth watching.

2. Rematch with one Big (Ben) tweak: Don’t put too much stock in New England’s 27-16 Week 7 victory played in Heinz Field. Roethlisberger suffered a torn meniscus the week before against the Miami Dolphins and underwent a minor procedure to fix the issue. Backup Landry Jones started in his place, and the Pittsburgh offense just wasn’t the same.

3. Emerging X-factor: With tight end Rob Gronkowski out for the remainder of the season after undergoing back surgery, running back Dion Lewis has emerged as New England’s toughest matchup problem for opposing defenses. Against the Houston Texans in the divisional round, he became the first player in postseason history to score touchdowns on a kick return, a reception, and a rush in the same game. Lewis is shifty, quick and probably can’t be left in man-to-man coverage. Pittsburgh, however, has very athletic inside linebackers in Ryan Shazier and Lawrence Timmons, so the Steelers should be able to get creative in their game plan against Lewis.

Steelers V Chiefs

Posted in Steeler Nation with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 14, 2017 by hiberniabar

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Kansas City Chiefs

Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri

Sunday, January 15, 2017, 8:20 p.m. (ET)

 

c1rzj-gxaaa6ouk

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw for 300 yards and five touchdowns, while running back Le’Veon Bell, just returning following a three-game suspension, rushed for 144 yards, in a 43-14 drubbing of the Chiefs at Heinz Field back on October 2. That was a long time ago, obviously, but is it long enough to make up 29 points? Kansas City is mostly average statistically–including 24th, overall and 26th against the run. What that should tell you is that, as long as Pittsburgh can protect the football, yards and points should be there for the taking.

As for the defense, again, it was a long time ago, but Pittsburgh’s pass rush, which barely registered a pulse over the first three games, sacked quarterback Alex Smith four times on October 2. Much like their defense, the Chiefs offense, ranked 20th, overall, isn’t much to write home about. Sure, there are weapons in all-world tight end Travis Kelce, along with Hill, who also caught 61 passes for 593 yards as a multi-faceted Slash-like threat, but Kansas City’s offense doesn’t possess enough fire power to blow the Steelers out.

Therefore, as long as the Steelers improving defense tackles in the open field and perhaps manages a turnover or two, this could be the recipe for a big playoff road victory.

Most of us are lucky enough to have the next day off so get your Black n’ Gold on and get on down to Hibernia and start waving those towels, this will be Epic.

Almost there, after months and months and months of waiting, the regular season is in sight. While I’m hesitant to wish away the last few weeks of summer, the football drought has gone on far too long.
The Steelers first game is against the Washington Redskins in their backyard, FedEx Field on September 12th at 7:10pm ET. It’s our first Monday night game of regular season but first we must finish out preseason, after a solid win last night against the Saints, we should have a decent test ahead of us when we take on the Panthers in Carolina for our last “practice” game on Thursday, September 1st at 7:30pm ET.

Also we will be running our Hibernia elimination football pool, 20pts per entry, pick one team each week, no repeat picks, tie is a push, last man standing takes all…….simples……get your name and your points in and good luck.
