post #1351 of 1795

Everybody was going nuts wondering why Koetter was sitting Martin, I guess now we know why.

 

I hope he gets the help he needs, but it doesn't hurt that we're now off the hook for his guaranteed $7 million next year.

According to Adam Schefter..."San Francisco is expected to make sweeping changes, dismissing both HC Chip Kelly and GM Trent Baalke, league sources tell ESPN."

 

I smell a Chip Kelly sighting on the east coast.

SF is in dire need of a figurative orbital based nuking after this season.
post #1354 of 1795

Eh, SF won't be firing the owners, so nothing will improve.

How is that even a "drug" by the NFL's standards?

 

Kelly to the Jags?

Rams, Jags and Bills all expected to interview Arizona OC Harold Goodwin.

 

Seems like Goodwin is the designated "Rooney Rule" guy this offseason.

Great.

Seattle is just killing me today. A safety off a terrible snap. He literally has one job!
post #1362 of 1795

And now two Seattle players are fighting each other. That team is begging to implode.

Maybe they're angry that they nearly lost to the 49ers. 

post #1364 of 1795
Yeah, but who the hell are Frank Clark and Jarran Reed?

Legendary comedy duo?

Mike McCoy fired too! Probably going to save him some anxiety, what with the Chargers in stadium purgatory.
post #1366 of 1795
Chip Kelly is gone. Get your ass back to the NCAA.

With McCoy being fired, it makes me fear for the Chargers that Ken Whisenhunt will be their head coach.

No team deserves Ken Whisenhunt. No team.
post #1367 of 1795

That's pretty much all the axes that might fall, right?

post #1368 of 1795
There's no justice if Hue Jackson has a job on Tuesday. Marvin Lewis should be canned too, if he wasn't already maybe probably retiring.

Lol. Apparently Minnesota (the Gophers) have already reached out to him.

Eh, as someone who watches every Browns game, I give Hue credit for the team playing hard all year. They lack talent, and the talent they do have is extremely inexperienced (half the team was comprised of either rookies or 2nd year players) - neither of those things are really Hue's fault. This is essentially an expansion team and as such, I don't mind him getting another year. It isn't like we are going to get anyone better.
post #1371 of 1795

Yeah I don't think Hue is going anywhere. Marvin Lewis is long overdue. I couldn't tell if Baltimore gave zero effort today because they were knocked out of the playoffs last week, or the Bengals actually played well.

post #1372 of 1795

Nice to see the Patriots have their annual free pass to the AFC Championship game.

post #1373 of 1795

Jed York at the 49ers' annual "We Be Fucked" press conference: "I own this team. You don't dismiss owners."

 

Maybe, but Mommy and Daddy can take it away.

post #1374 of 1795
Sounds like something Trump would say.

As said above, I think the people in charge of the Browns realize Jackson had little-to-no-chance to actually compete; the wheels fell off for a bit in Nov/Dec but they played hard early in the season and had two good efforts at the end. I think Jackson did a reasonable job considering the talent on hand. 

 

 

Marvin Lewis....eh. Um, the Bengals have been pretty consistent winners lately under him, and have rarely been bad. He's a good coach, if I were Cincy, I don't know that I'd be all the eager to can him after one subpar season. 

post #1376 of 1795

My God, Brock Osweiler is going to start in a playoff game. This Texans-Raiders game is going to be so ugly. Having watched the Texans all season, I have no idea how it is they managed to stumble into the playoffs. They are terrible.

post #1377 of 1795

That is the entire season.  Even the powerhouse teams aren't very impressive.

 

Look at the 13-3 Cowboys and 14-2 Patriots.  What are their respective signature wins?  For the Cowboys, I guess it is the Steelers win (legit, but the Steelers weren't playing their best ball at the time).  I can't even name one for the Pats.  I guess they beat the 10-6 Dolphins (???) pretty handily this past weekend.

 

As for the Pats, after a bye, they get to play either Miami or the Oakland/Houston winner to go the AFC Championship game.  Quick, name the QB they have to beat in 1.5 weeks???  The Pats have been incredibly lucky this year wrt opposing QBs.  Except for Wilson, Flacco, and Palmer (the latter two are [or were] decent), they faced completely second- and third-tier QBs all year.  Even Pitt started Landry Jones that week.  An easier path to the Super Bowl has never been laid...

 

Just a mediocre year all around.

post #1378 of 1795
I wouldn't force prisoners to sit through the Raiders/Texans game. Giants/Packers could be awesome, though.

They beat the Texans 27-0, which . . .eh?

post #1379 of 1795

I detest Colin Cowherd, but this is some quality Browns-related humor.

post #1380 of 1795

My thoughts and predictions for the games this weekend: 

 

  • Raiders @ Texans: So Conner Cook with be the first rookie to make his debut in a playoff game ever. This could either be one of the biggest disasters in NFL playoff history or a shocker that will be talked about for years. I have no faith in Brock Osweiler but Houston does have a good defense. I think the Raiders keep this close but despite the ineptness of the Texans' offense they'll do just enough to win. Raiders 16 Texans 23   

 

  • Lions @ Seahawks: Although the Lions are feisty and Matthew Stafford has played well this season I don't think Detroit has much of a chance. Seattle will win their one and only playoff game this this year. Lions 13 Seattle 30 

 

  • Dolphins @ Steelers: No Ryan Tannenhill means Miami's small chance of winning this game just went out the window. Plus, I didn't see them beating Pittsburgh 2 times in one season. Dolphins 18 Pittsburgh 29 

 

  • Giants @ Packers: This should be the best game of the weekend and I think it will be. The Giants have had the Packers number the last few years especially in the playoffs. I think this will be a back and forth game for 3 quarters. But Aaron Rodgers is playing like an MVP and the distraction of the Giants players partying down in Miami with Bieber that's been talked about all week will indeed be a factor and Eli's playoff magic will not show up. Giants 24 Packers 34
post #1381 of 1795

Predictions for Wild Card weekend:

 

- Raiders @ Texans: OAK

I want this for the city of Oakland if for no other reason.  Just give them a playoff win before they get knocked out and leave town.

 

- Lions @ Seahawks: SEA

'Hawks are just too good at home.  Like others have said though, I believe this will be the only playoff win for them this year.

 

- Dolphins @ Steelers: PIT

Dolphins don't have much of a chance in this game.  Should be the largest margin of victory this weekend.

 

- Giants @ Packers: GB

Packers have that sweet mojo going for them.  They're the hottest team entering the playoffs who aren't the Patriots.

What about dem 'Boys? I think the entire country is hotter on Dak Prescott than even Tom Brady right now.

post #1383 of 1795

Raiders @ Texans - Call it the Unwatcha-Bowl. A rookie getting his first start against the #1 defense while Brock "I'm Not Good" Osweiler has to face Kahlil Mack. Oy. I'll take the Texans, mainly because Connor Cook (and his dad) are assholes. Texans 3, Raiders 2

 

Lions Seahawks - Agreed about this being the Seahawks' only win, but I think it'll be closer than people think. If Earl Thomas was playing, it'd be no contest. Hawks 27, Lions 24

 

Dolphins @ Steelers - The biggest blowout of the weekend. Steelers 38, Dolphins 10

 

Giants @ Packers - The one game I can't wait to see. I don't think the Miami trip matters. If the coach didn't give a shit, why should anybody else? That stuff matters to aging sportswriters and that's about it. My upset pick for the weekend. Giants 20, Packers 19

I have to admit, some small part of me hopes Eli pulls it off one more time. That would throw everyone's "best QB" debates in a tizzy for years to come.

post #1385 of 1795

I really can't call any of them with confidence, but I will anyway!

 

- Raiders @ Texans: TEX

Untested, douchebag QB that no one likes?  That's not going rally Oakland.  It will be close, but Texans will squeak out a win.

 

- Lions @ Seahawks: DET

Seattle has been so miserably inconsistent that I expect them to lose this one.  They'll make too many mistakes, including yards of penalties.

 

- Dolphins @ Steelers: PIT

Might be close.  Big Ben could be really hungover. Who knows?

 

- Giants @ Packers: NY

Packers have been queasy in the playoffs lately, so NY gets my pick.  Expect at least one ODB meltdown, however.

post #1386 of 1795

Patriots will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.  Giants get in the playoffs by Wild Card.  Have to play Green Bay at home and Dallas at home.

 

post #1387 of 1795

Oh God, reading that stuff about Conner Cook's Dad is really unsettling. I had heard Cook Jr.  was a dick himself so I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. 

I hope he gets his ass handed to him by the Texans defense.

Conner Cook is as shitty as advertised. Surprised Raiders haven't switched to McGloin yet. Either way, Texaans or Raiders are going to get killed next week.
post #1389 of 1795
That PI call is the game. If you're not already doing something else, you can turn the game off.
post #1390 of 1795

Seattle's 12th Man is in full effect tonight.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
post #1391 of 1795
Yeah, they were the reason the Lions only scored six points...
post #1392 of 1795
I see the NFL continued the shitty play into the Postseason.
post #1393 of 1795

Rodgers might be our only shot at an entertaining game... and to prevent us from having to watch Jerry Jones hoist the Lombardi w/ his shit-eating grin... or Belichek hoisting it with his shit-eating grimace.

I would be thrilled to see Goodell hand the trophy to Tom Brady. I don't want the Pats to win, but that would be a wonderful moment.

post #1395 of 1795
If I was Goodell, I'd spike the trophy in front of him. And then take away the SB wins from 2002, 2004, and 2005 for cheating, on air during the ceremony. And then contract the Patriots.

This Steelers-Dolphins game looks legit. About to be 21-3.

I mean... would it?  If one shitty person gets revenge on a shittier person, is that justice?  Or just a reminder that no matter who wins in life, it's usually not going to be someone you like very much.

I loathe Roger Goodell. He is, by law, the actual worst.

post #1398 of 1795
Boston sports fans are worst. Whatever makes their lives worse is better than whatever doesn't.
post #1399 of 1795

NFL TV ratings are down 8 percent this season. We're 3-for-3 on the wild card round providing ample evidence why.

 

Packers/Giants HAS to be good, right?

post #1400 of 1795

For no reason whatsoever, go Giants.
