Can the Falcons get into the Super Bowl for the second time in the Franchise history?

This NFL season is arguably the most unpredictable season in the history of the NFL.  Nobody anticipated that the Green Bay Packers would face the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC championship. In fact, nobody anticipated these two teams would play for the NFC championship at the start of the playoffs. Both teams have exceeded expectations and helped make this NFL season an unforgettable one.  That being said, only one team will headline the Super Bowl.

The Packers had a difficult time getting into the playoffs, with doubt during the season if the Packers would make it. During the season fans and NFL analyst criticized the performance of Packer’s Quarterback  Aaron Rodgers, with many feeling he was not the same player he was in seasons prior.  The Packers with their playoff hopes threated during week 11, would complete the season winning every game and Rodgers would make a case for MVP consideration as well.  Getting into the Wildcard, they would beat the Giants in dominate fashion. Then the Packers would upset the Dallas Cowboys, who many felt would be in the Super Bowl. The Packers has overcome all the odds and are close to being in the Super Bowl once again.

The Falcons had an impressive season, which caught many be surprise. The Falcons always had the talent, but always seemed to fall short to becoming Super Bowl contenders.   Throughout the season the Falcons had one of the worst defenses in the NFL, being ranked 25th in the league.  However, they are ranked the 2nd best offense in the league. Quarterback Matt Ryan is a strong candidate for MVP for the season and is making his case as a top tier QB in the NFL. Wide Receiver Julio Jones has also made his case for one of the best receivers in the NFL, having the 2nd best receiving yards in the league.  The Falcons have shocked many, but getting into the Super Bowl would really make their season an exceptional one.

Both teams have surprised everyone and have exceeded beyond their expectations from the start of the season. The Packers would become underdogs and fight their way to the Conference Championship. The Falcons would overcome the weakness of their defense, by having an incredible offense. The Falcons have the better offense, but the question remains how will their defense hold up against the Packers. Aaron Rodgers will look to take advantage of the Falcons defense, but Ryan may have more difficulty with the Packer defense.  Another question is with the injuries and the games to get to the Conference Championship go against the Packers? Key players like Jordy Nelson and Devonte Adams are still questionable to play, with players like Clay Mathews being banged up. Just like the season, the NFC Championship game is unpredictable and that is what makes this game exciting.

Who will have the last word this weekend?

This Saturday free on Spike TV Bellator 170 will feature two bitter rivals Tito “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” Ortiz  vs Chael “The American Gangster” Sonnen in the Main Event.  Both fighters have trash talked one another while promoting the fight and feel they will be victorious decisively. This fight will be Sonnen’s debut in Bellator and will be Ortiz last fight of his career.  Both Ortiz and Sonnen want to leave their mark this weekend, but only one will get their hand raised.

Ortiz is a legend in MMA and helped make the sport mainstream to the general public. Once the biggest star in the UFC, Ortiz would leave in 2014 and become a bigger draw for Bellator. Ortiz has helped get attention and revenue for Bellator, while also reinventing his career. At 41 years old he is still incredibly strong and a threat on the ground, with his Jujitsu and ground and pound. Bellator 170 will mark the end of an era for the pioneer, but Ortiz wants to go out with a blaze of glory. Win or lose, Bellator 170 will be a night to remember for Ortiz fans.

Sonnen is one of the most charismatic combat athlete arguably of all time. Before Conor McGregor, their was Sonnen and he was very influential to how to promote  fights today in MMA.  Sonnen hasn’t fought since 2013 and 39 years old wants to make his mark in his debut at Bellator 170. Like Ortiz, Sonnen is dangerous on the ground and dominate his opponent.  The question going into this Saturday is with a long hiatus from fighting, how will Sonnen react in the fight.

Their are many questions going into the fight Saturday. People question has the time off Sonnen has work against him and what the mindset of Ortiz will be in his last fight? Ortiz has been more active, with his last fight being for the Bellator Light Heavyweight Championship.  Ortiz also is the bigger and stronger fighter. However, Sonnen is still a fantastic wrestler having a Greco Roman Wrestling background.  If he takes Ortiz down, Ortiz has problems fighting on his back and defending transitions on the ground.  Sonnen also has great cardio and the time off can also be positive, because Sonnen will be the fresher fighter.

Their are many factors going into the fight, that won’t be answered until the fight happens. I think Ortiz will start the fight off strong, but Sonnen will take Ortiz down and try to keep him on the ground. Sonnen also has great Jujitsu and Ortiz can be submitted, but Sonnen can also work for a decision due to his cardio.  Ortiz will be hard to deal with, but Sonnen will control the fight and dominate Ortiz for a Unanimous Decision.

Prediction: Sonnen wins by Unanimous Decision

 

College hasn’t even started and I’m going down a rabbit hole

So first off let me just say this country’s school system is so corrupted. Grant it, yes I am grateful for the opportunity to actually go to college but still, i mean come on it needs a lot more improvements. we seriously lost what could have been an amazing president (my homie) Bernie Sanders.  I’m not gonna get into that …

So first off let me just say this country’s school system is so corrupted. Grant it, yes I am grateful for the opportunity to actually go to college but still, i mean come on it needs a lot more improvements. we seriously lost what could have been an amazing president (my homie) Bernie Sanders.  I’m not gonna get into that right now. Let me tell you why I’m in the rabbit hole and I’m terrified I’m not going to get out. So I’m going to be transferring and guess what happens I owe the school money. Why? Because the government decided to give me money that they weren’t supposed to and so whatever I pay it. So it takes forever and a freaking day to actually get my credits transferred and what happens I can’t get a meeting with an advisor at the new school till the 30th THE 30TH PEOPLE. when school starts. dear lord thanks, school system for taking forever with everything, EVERYTHING!!!!! and ways I really hope it works out in the end.

P.S. sorry I haven’t been posting I have a life you know  ?

Inescapable whiteness
envelopes the shades of color outside my window
brown branches burdened by the weight
black tires on the streets—motionless
green grass buried beneath the snow
rose petals collapse
blood on a white canvas
the sun will melt it away
but it’ll still remain
there is nothing pure about the
destruction it leaves behind.
