GOOD MORNING SKA USERS. IT’S TUESDAY AND THAT MEANS IT’S TIME TO ARM YOURSELVES… WITH KNOWLEDGE!
The Real BKOB Report is filmed in front of a live studio audience.
Well Knowledge Seekers, it seems that this chapter of the Jim Harbaugh/Pete Carroll rivalry has comes to a close. The 49ers have been eliminated from the playoffs and, according to every single reporter on the planet, Jim Harbaugh is either going to be traded or canned. That means the next time the “What’s Your Deal?” Bowl convenes, Jim will be coaching for another team.
So let’s see how the two rivals did against one another in the NFCW incarnation of their long and bitter feud. Here are the numbers from their nine head-to-head matchups from 2011-2014
As you can see, it’s been a closely contested tug-of-war between the two. Both coaches have taken the upper hand at certain points. There have been blowouts and nail-biters. We’ve seen highlights, penalties, Ted Ginn Jr. Return TDs and one very famous Tipped Pass. But overall, I give the edge to Pete Carroll and his Seahawks. I mean, I kinda HAVE to – Just look at the numbers! My hands are tied. Either way, it’s been a lot of fun to watch.
But enough with the stats,.. Let’s get to the STATS!

I’ve removed the Quarterbacks from the Rushing stat rankings. I originally put them there so I could make fun of Kaepernick, but that is no longer necessary. If you guys don’t like it, you can kiss my Golden Boner Award.
Other than that, it was not a good week for NFCW Offenses. Both NFCW matchups proved to be defense-heavy throwback games, like most people had expected.
The December Grind in the NFCW continues to churn, with the Division Championship still very much up in the air. Arizona or Seattle? My beloved stats clearly show that the Seahawks are the class of the division. Now they just have to prove it in Glendale!
Will Kurt Warner’s wife let him play so the Cardinals have a chance at clinching the #1 Seed this weekend? Or will the Hawks continue to dominate, and take control of the Division? The suspense!!
