    I hope it happens.

    It won't. The Browns could barely beat the Steelers backups, and a lot of non-calls by the Refs.

    with the help of a few blind refs... Even the announcing team were baffled why a few PI's weren't called. Especially on the 2 point conversion, or roughing the passer which resulted in an interception against Rudolph.

    I'm watching to be entertained, if the Eagles aren't up to it then they shouldn't be put in that position again. Of course they owe us, they don't make money out of thin air, they have TV contracts and nobody is going to watch if the product isn't up to snuff.

    I didn't have any illusions the Browns would win, but the Steelers are the only team I really root against that was left standing, and now they're gonna have it even easier so that's a bummer.

    They were supposed to be getting their full team back for the first time in 3 weeks, who can say what would’ve happened

    The Eagles weren't the only team that lost this weekend with very, lets call them questionable, decisions that you would never make if you wanted to win either. Kind of weird they pick that one game to get mad about tanking.

    Given your avatar and how you're speaking you're not an Eagles fan - could be wrong, just an assumption.

    As a Philly resident there's A LOT of talk going on about the WFT game.
    Honestly, most people do not care that they threw the game. It's not like it was going to change anything for them other than draft priority.

    In fact Brandon Graham said on 94.1 that they were told that Nate Sudfeld would be put in the game during game day planning - before the game even started. He said that the only surprise was that it was so late in the game, and that they thought he was going to see play after the first half.

    As far as money, they don't make as much as you think from prime time tv. They make it from merchandise, product endorsements, etc. They owe no one anything. Eagles fans are just happy the injury-ridden season is over.

    I don't think anyone in "the land of assholes" (philly) gives a crap that you were not entertained. The WFT should have played better as well. It's not like they were playing an amazing game... pick on them for a bit.

    Because the Jags and Jets weren't tanking. They were just bad teams. No coach willingly tanks if he knows he'll get fired for it.
    Legion made WoD's mistakes into traditions. It is my belief when all is said and done we will regard Legion as the beginning of the end.

    Texans apparently almost sure to hire Nick Caserio, after his hiring there went south 2 years ago.

    That sucks, but...

    Broncos now apparently also very interested in hiring Dave Ziegler, who is the guy behind Nick Caserio.

    Ziegler has ties to Denver and worked there in the past before making his ascent in NE.


    Going to be tough for the Patriots to lose their 2 top personnel guys (behind Belichick) in the 1 offseason in 20 years where they need to really do everything right and turn the team around.

    Patriots dynasty didn't die with Tom Brady leaving, it's been death by a 1000 cuts like the above over the past few years, basically since 2017.

    Can't wait for Matt Patricia to be the next coach of the Texans.

    Browns still dealing with rona cases as their HC tested positive. So potentially the sunday night playoff game will feature a fill in head coach....

    I'm still slightly salty about the Seahawks getting a Saturday game.

    The Texans hired a firm to help them with their GM search, and hired someone else. What is even the point of that if you knew who you wanted to begin with?

    Watch the Texans hire McDaniels next.

    "Easterby will not choose the GM."

    They proceed to ignore their search firm and hire Easterby's guy.


    What a joke of a franchise.

    I don't get it. Patriots haven't drafted well in a long time. Watson's career is gonna be wasted by perpetual rebuilds.

    I mean at the end of the day what it is is a new owner who's fallen in love with a "Culture Guy" and thinks he's got the ideas to turn the franchise around. You just have to hope this either magically works, or they wise up to it before Watson decides he wants out.

    Joe Judge is enjoying a honeymoon right now but as a Giant fan I have my doubts. Defense was 10th in the league against a soft schedule and Daniel Jones earned a lukewarm incomplete. Team was 6-10 against a light schedule. Need a major improvement on offense if they’re gonna compete.

    I can't believe anyone gives a shit about anything that happened in the NFC East this week. I had a brief hallucination where, 30 years after SB 25, we met the Giants in the Super Bowl again and redeemed "Wide Right," but then I realized how insane I had to be to think the winner of the NFC East surviving past wild card weekend would be.
