NFL Playoffs are set

The 2008 NFL regular season has come to an end, and what a strange season it has been. We have seen the first ever team go 0-16 ~ Detroit Lions, we have seen an 11-5 team ~ New England Patriots miss the playoffs, while an 8-8 team ~ San Diego Chargers has a home playoff game. We saw the biggest turnaround in NFL history as the Miami Dolphins who were 1-15 last season, went 11-5 and won the AFC East, the 10 game turnaround is the most ever! There are 7 teams in the playoffs this year, that missed the playoffs last year. Last Years defending Super Bowl Champions ~ New York Giants, look poised to repeat, they have home field advantage throughout the playoffs in the NFC.

There have also been some monumental collapses also, the New York Jets are sitting home after starting the season 8-3 and handing the 10-0 Tennessee Titans their first loss of the season. The Denver Broncos looked like a lock to win the AFC West in week 13, but the 4-8 San Diego Chargers managed to catch them and end their season. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers looked like they were headed for home field advantage throughouth the playoffs , but they lost their last 4 games and are on the golf course already, and let us not forget the biggest collapse of all, the over hyped and over rated Dallas Cowboys ~ the early season favorites to win Super Bowl 43 are home after a dissapointing 9-7 season. They had a "Win and In" game against their division rivals the Philadelphia Eagles, all they had to do was beat the down trodden Eagles, and they were in the playoffs, instead, they got beat 44-6. To say Dallas has some December and January woes is putting it mildly. To put it in perspective, since 1997, the Arizona Cardinals have more playoff wins, and as many playoff appearances as the Dallas Cowboys. Tony Romo's record in December is 5-8, and he is 0-2 on the playoffs with some memorably awful games including the fumbled hold on what would have been the go ahead field goal against the Seattle Seahawks.

The final seedings for the 2008 NFL Playoffs are:



The 2008 NFL Playoff Schedule is as follows:

NFL Team Blankets Breakdown

Last week I broke down the plush NFL team blankets made by Northwest, you can re-visit the description by clicking here. Basically, there are 3 different styles of plush blankets ~ Micro Raschel "Imprint" blankets, Plush Raschel "Tonal" blankets, and Large Plush Raschel "Diamond Plate" blankets.

Today, I am going to discuss the different types and styles of "Tapestry" blankets. The main difference in the plush blankets and the tapestries, is that the tapestry throw's are woven and can be used for much more than just a blanket. The tapestry throws look great hanging over a couch or chair, used as a wall hanging, or a throw rug, or any other type of room accent. Tapestries are amazingly colorful, and extremely detailed. There are 2 types of tapestries ~ Woven Tapestries, and Triple Woven Jacquard Throws.
The Woven tapestries usually commemorate special events, when there is a new World Series Champion, or college football champion, you will find a special edition tapestry over at KHC Sports. When there is a new Super Bowl Champ, of course you can get a special collectible tapestry at ProFootballStuff. The woven tapestries are amazingly detailed and colorful, they are 48 by 60 inches, and are fringed on all 4 sides.
Woven tapestries are available in every NFL team in what is called the "Home Field Advantage" series. They are a beautifully crafted piece of artwork. Every tapestry is different, there is the team helmet and name with the officially licensed logo and colors and a picture of the teams helmet, in the background, there is artwork relative to the city ~ like dolphins jumping out of the ocean and pictures of palm trees for the Miami Dolphins.

There are also "Player Tapestries" Basically a woven tapestry with an image of your favorite football player.

The final series of tapestries, is the "Specialty Series" basically these are collectible items commemorating historical events in the NFL. There are tapestries for every Super Bowl winning team, along with the official logo of the Super Bowl that they won. There are also special limited edition tapestries produced in a very small quantity. The examples of these are the now famous "Helmet Catch" by David Tyree in Super Bowl 42. The artisans at Northwest's factory actually produced a blanket with a picture of David Tyree with the football pinned to his helmet as he is getting mugged by Rodney Harrison. You can see the helmet catch tapestry here. There is also a Dallas Cowboys last season in Texas Stadium tapestry with an image of the famous stadium with the hole in the roof printed right on the blanket.

The other version of woven tapestries is the "Triple Woven Jacquard Throw". These are more of a blanket, they feature loom woven high bulk acrylic for the look and feel of cotton. They are extremely soft and comfortable and come in 2 sizes ~ 48 x 60 inches and a 36 by 48 inch baby blanket series.

This is the 48"x60" triple woven jacquard, it is very soft, extremely detailed, and features the team name and image of their helmet woven into the blanket.

The NFL baby blankets are one of our most popular items at ProFootballStuff, they are a great size, they are extremely soft, and best of all, they will get your little one on the right track to rooting for YOUR favorite football team.
As always, every blanket is available in EVERY NFL team, and the lowest price you can get NFL team blankets and tapestries is at ~

World Series game delayed for first time ever

Monday night's World Series game 5 is the first game in over 120 World Series' played, where a game has been suspended due to the elements. The awful weather in Philadelphia played havoc with the field and caused the grounds crew to spread drying agent on the infield between innings and during pitching changes.
The game will pick up Tuesday night in the bottom of the 6th inning. Major League Baseball rules state that if 4 1/2 innings are played in a World Series game, that is enough time to make it official. The Philadelphia Phillies had a 2-1 lead after 4 1/2 and the rain was making the field unplayable. Major League Baseball and commissioner Bud Selig avoided another black eye for baseball when the Tampa Bay Rays scored a run in the top of the 6th to tie the game. Outstanding centerfielder B.J. Upton singled off Cole Hammels, and somehow managed to steal 2nd base on the sloppy, muddy Citizens Bank Ballpark infield. Carlos Pena got his 2nd base hit of the Series and Upton slip home safely to tie the game at 2.
Had that run not scored, the World Series would have ended with the Philadelphia Phillies as World Champions.
The weather for Tuesday looks even worse than it did on Monday with rain forecast all throughout the area. Game 5 is scheduled to resume Tuesday night at 8:00 pm ET (weather permitting).
We can hold off on the Philadelphia Phillies World Champions merchandse that will be available at for at least one moe day.

Rays Even Series at 1-1

The Tampa Bay Rays evened the World Series at a game a piece Thursday night behind the pithing of James Shields and David Price.
B.J. Upton, Carlos Pena, and Evan Longoria came through in game 2 after going a combined 0-12 in game 1. Each had an RBI which proved to be enough to beat the Philles, the final score was 4-2 as we head to Philadelphia for game 3 Saturday night. The pitching matchup for game 3 pits ALCS MVP Matt Garza against 45 year old Jamie Moyer.

Why not grab some MLB Baseball gear to sow support for which ever team you are rooting for this October. Some cool ideas are MLB grill covers to keep your BBQ away from the elements this winter, or maybe a baseball team license plate frame to show everyone out on the road who your team is, and don't forget to get your 2009 team calendars before they are sold out!

Hamels and Utley push Phils to 1-0 series lead

Chase Utley hit a 2 run homer in the top of the first inning, and Cole Hamels pitched seven strong innings allowing only 2 runs, and Brad Lidge stayed perfect in save opportunities this year as the Philadelphia Phillies won 3-2. Carl Crawford of the Tampa Bay Rays hit a 2 run bomb for Tampa's only runs, but the clutch hitting of B.J. Upton and Evan Longoria was silenced as both went a combined 0-8.

Click HERE for the full box score of game 1.
