Willie Snead to Ravens / Hall of Fame Game


On 4-20-18 the Ravens signed the former NO Saints Receiver to a deal.

I ran some searches and had some interesting finds.

From 4/20/18 to 9/9/18 (First game) is 4 months 20 days

From 4/20/18 to SB53 is 290 days

Snead birthday 10/17 will be the 290th day of the year. He was born in 1992.

Last season he had 92 receiving yards

From his upcoming birthday to SB53 is 109 days. 109 = 29th prime.

The deal is 2 years 7 million with an additional 3.4 million in incentives
3.4 sticks out because SB53 on 34th day of the year.

He wore # 83 for the Saints but I have a feeling he might be wearing 82 for the Ravens


I also saw the Ravens will be playing in the HOF game on 8/2/18 vs the Bears.

This game is 6 months 1 day before SB53
61 / 18th prime & 53 / 16th prime

I went and looked to see how many teams who played in this game went on to make the SB.

The most recent was the 2001 Rams
2001 was the 82nd season for the NFL

In the 01 HOF Game Rams defeated the Dolphins 17-10

They would go on to lose to the Patriots in SB36, 20-17 in New Orleans
SB36 was played on 2/3 like SB53 will

The 01 Rams started out 6-0 before losing their first game, Week 7 to the Saints 34-31
They would lose again Week 11 24-17 vs the Bucs to fall to 8-2
They would win 8 straight before losing in the SB to the Patriots.

They started out 6-1 finished 8-1 and had two wins in between for a record of 16-3


Next up was the 1994 San Diego Chargers
1994 was the 75th Season for the NFL

On 7/30/94 they lost to the Falcons 21-17 in the HOF game

181 days prior to this game ATL hosted SB28
Cowboys defeated the Bills 30-13
181 or 18/81
2018 Season/ 99th NFL Season
9+9 = 18
9*9 = 81

Back to the Chargers
1994 was their 35th season

They also started out 6-0 before losing their 7th game to Broncos 20-15 (35) this dropped their record to 6-1
They would finish 11-5 in the RS
13-6 overall

In SB29 they were defeated by 49ers 49-26
The game was played on 1/29/95 in Miami


Last up we have the 1988 Bengals
1988 was the 69th season of the NFL

On 7/30/88 they defeated the LA Rams 14-7 in the HOF Game

The Bengals ALSO started 6-0
They lost Week 7 to the Pats 27-21
Final record was 14-5

In SB23 they lost to the 49ers 20-16
The played was played on 1/22/89 in Miami


This started out as a simple post but may be on to something here
All these teams started out 6-1 then 8-2 and followed it up with a SB loss

In 1988 Bengals QB, Boomer Esiason, won the MVP
In 2001 Rams QB, Kurt Warmer, won the MVP
In 1994, the Chargers lost to the MVP 49ers QB, Steve Young, in SB29

Holy shit just had another big find.
All three of these teams first lost of the season came 98 days or a span of 99 days before the SB in their respective seasons. That's crazy!
Remember this is the 99th NFL Season

The games played on Sunday of Week 8 for 2018 Season will be 98 days or a span of 99 days before SB53

The Ravens will be playing in Carolina vs The Panthers this week.
They don't have their bye until Week 10 so this would be their 8th game of the Season.

Week 1: Rams @ Raiders

Rams @ Raiders

Both these teams played in LA before relocating to St. Louis/Oakland.
Rams are now back in LA.

Game played 9-10-18 (MNF)
253rd day of the year
112 remaining

Raiders lead series 8-5 (14th game)
Raiders lead 5-2 @ home (8th game)

Rams winning to make it 5-3 jumps out for me.

59th season

RSR: 462-411-11 (885th game)

There is a riddle with Atlanta and # 58 I keep seeing.

DEREK CARR
DOB: 3/28/81 (27 y/o)

Pick-Patriots

Week 1- Bills @ Ravens


I'm going to start posting initial breakdowns of the Week 1 games, mainly to get WBC feedback since no one else comments. I will update all games as we get closer to the season.

BILLS @ RAVENS
Game played 9/9/18
252nd day of the year
113 days remaining

Ravens lead Series 4-3 (8th game)
Ravens lead 4-1 @ Home (5th game)

The Bills only win in Baltimore came on 10/31/1999, 13-10 (23)
This was the 304th day of the year and left 61 days
Interesting for the following reasons
-This is the 99th NFL Season
-SB53 will be played on the 34th day of the year
-61 = 18 prime (2018 Season)

Last game played between these teams was on 9/11/16 in Baltimore
The Ravens won 13-7 (20)

BALTIMORE RAVENS (2017:9-7)
23rd Season (9th prime)

RSR: 190-161-1 (353rd game = 71st prime #)
ATR: 205-169-1 (376th game)
Could get 191st RS win (43rd prime)

Lost last game played to the Bengals 31-27 (58)
This loss kept the Ravens out and got the Bills in the playoffs

JOHN HARBAUGH
DOB: 9/23/62 (55 y/o)
This year his B/D leaves 99 days left in the year
The game is 14 days before 56th B/D.

RSR: 94-66 (161st game)
ATR: 204-71 (176th game)

JOE FLACCO
DOB: 1/16/85 (33 y/o)
RSR: 92-62 (155th Start)
ATR: 102-67 (170th Start)

Could get 103rd career win (27th Prime)
9 x 23 = 207
9 & 23 come into play for the Ravens Season/Harbaugh Birthday

BUFFALO BILLS (9-8)
59th Season

RSR: 409-467-8 (885th Game)
409 = 80th prime.
This will also be the 49th SB of the modern Era

ATR: 423-483-8 (915th Game)

Lost last game played to Jaguars 10-3 (13)

SEAN MCDERMOTT
DOB: 3/21/74 (44 y/o)

RSR: 9-7 (17th game)
ATR- 9-8 (18th game)
Could fall to 9-9 to start the 99th NFL Season

For now it appears the Bills Week 1 starter will be A.J McCarron.
He was a backup QB for the Bengals who eliminated the Ravens last season.

DOB: 9/13/90
ATR: 2-2 (0-1 in Playoffs)

Could fall to 2-3 to start the Ravens 23rd Season

His last RS start came against the Ravens on 1/3/16
The Bengals won 24-16 (40)
McCaron stat line-17/27, 160 yard, 2TDs

His last start was on 1/9/16 vs the Steelers in the playoffs
Steelers won 18-16 (34)

McCarron state line: 23-41, 212 yards, 1TD, I INT
23 = 9th prime, 41 = 13th prime.
9/13 just like his bday

Bengals had this game won until Vontaze Burfict & Pacman Jones made stupid penalties which gave the Steelers a 1st down and put them in FG range

Steelers kicker, Chris Boswell, then hit a 35 yarder with 18 seconds left to win the game

35 is 53 flipped, next SB will be the 53rd
18 seconds sticks out because this is the 2018 season

The total of 34 points does as well because SB53 will be played on the 34th day of the year.

PICK-Ravens

As stated, It's super early so this can change as the season gets closer.

Feel free to share thoughts/additional info!

Colts Riddle with SB53 / NFL Draft


I am continuing to look into SB53

I am seeing connections that it will be between the Rams/49ers vs Ravens

A team that seems to be involved in the Riddle is the Colts. I don't like the Colts this year but next year I think they have a good shot to make it.

Anyway I looked a new Colts HC. Frank Reich.

He was a former NFL QB.
His last game started/played was 12/27/98. This was Week 17 of the 1998 Season
He started for the Lions vs the Ravens
Ravens won 19-10

The Ravens starting QB that day was Jim Harbaugh
Harbaugh coached current Colts QB, Andrew Luck, in college

Harbaugh is now the HC @ Michigan
He coached the 49ers for 4 years (11'-14')
Harbaugh also was the Colts starting Qb from 94-97'

The only other game Reich started that season was Week 16 vs the Atlanta Falcons
In week 15 vs the 49ers he came in relief and played most of the game

Reich upcoming birthday (12/4/18) is 61 days before SB53
Reich played his college ball @ Maryland

All these players/coaches are so intertwined its ridiculous iculos


More to this but just documenting this for now

Also the # 8 appears to have a a big role

This is the first time in 19 years ATL will host a SB
19 = 8th prime

Its SB53
5+3=8

The schedules should be released later this week, I’ll be interested to see the matchups/bye weeks for Weeks 3,5,8 & 16

The NFL Draft is going to begin on 4/26/18
This is the 116th day of the year
Ravens have the 16th pick in the 1st Rd
Ravens QB, Joe Flacco birthday is 1/16

The NFL Season starts on 9/6/18
This date leaves 116 days left in the year

Keep in mind this year was the first time ever a 16 seed defeated a 1 seed in the NCAA tournament
The 16 seed was from Baltimore
16th prime = 53



Random thought-I’ve been hearing a lot lately how a4 seed has only won the NBA Finals once
I see a narrative for a 4 to win this year because 4 is the square root of 16

Kansas & Kentucky / 7 & 8

I went and looked at past NCAA Basketball Champions and had some interesting finds.

All but one time when the year of the season ended in 7-8
Kansas or Kentucky won the championship

1947-48----Kentucky won (10th Tournament)
1957-58---Kentucky won (20th Tournament))
1967-68---UCLA won (30th Tournament)
*Only year not won UK or KU
1977-78---Kentucky won (40th Tournament)
1987-88---Kansas Won (50th Tournament)
1997-98---Kentucky Won (60th Tournament)
2007-08---Kansas Won (70th Tournament)

Both KU & UK wear blue/white.

If Kansas does win their record would be 33-7
337=68th prime #

Looking at this quick, I'm not finding any other connections but I am sure there are some...

I'll update if I find any more
