I went 0 for 2 on my championship game picks last week in the NFL Playoffs to bring my playoff tally to 6-4. Denver's defense was masterful in their shut down of New England and Carolina just took Arizona to the woodshed. I won't be talking much about Super Bowl 50 at this point. The two week wait for the big game is too long. The manufacturing of hype and non-stories for the media to drum up is excruciating and exhausting. Sportstalk radio becomes completely unlistenable as most of the shows go to Radio Row and all the same guests are paraded through to each program.
Another 3-1 week on my playoff picks to take me to 6-2. Two games to pick this week, with the AFC and NFC Championship games. I'll go more in depth on my podcast which is embedded at the bottom of the blog but here are my picks:
Jeff Allen worked in Sportstalk radio in Orlando from 1983 to 1996. most notably as the Program and Sports Director at WGTO in the early 90's, anchoring morning sports reports and various sportstalk shows. Now, after many years, Jeff is deciding to have some fun again to share sports opinions through this blog, on Twitter @jeffallen_88 and with his podcast available on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, SoundCloud and TuneIn.
