    Week 14 Open Discussion.

    It wouldn't surprise me (I haven't done the math/just guessing) if the highly implausible scenario for the Eagles to get the sixth seed is for them to win the three "easy" games and tie against Dallas, with Dallas also winning out. At 8-7-1, Dallas would win the division on the tiebreak. And the Vikings and Rams and Bears completely collapse and only get to 8 wins each.

    No. What I meant regarding the Rams was that I'd like the Rams to still have legitimate hopes themselves when they play Dallas next week. If the Rams lose tomorrow, they'll probably be pretty much out of it going into their game with the Cowboys.

    Go Bills and Chiefs. And for the Eagles, it would probably be helpful if the Rams beat the Seahawks.

    Week 14: Cowboys @ Bears

    So I'm thinking that if the Cowboys lose, the Eagles can no longer win a "tiebreak" with them...because they only way that could happen would be if the Eagles lose a game in their division. But basically everything would be the same as before (if Dallas loses tonight), just that the Eagles by winning out would win the division outright rather than by a tiebreak (if Dallas wins their other games.) But it would also put in play the option that if Dallas loses to the Rams next week, the Eagles could then afford to lose one of the three games against the Giants/Redskins, as long as they win the other two and also beat the Cowboys. Go Bears.

    Hoping for the best but expecting the worst.

    Black Monday: Who's on the Hot Seat in 2019? Who gets fired?

    I don't see it. Assuming Garrett gets fired, Jerry would most likely be looking for a young hotshot coach rather than a retread. A retread is more likely for the Skins because young hotshots probably wouldn't be interested.

    My exact thought too.

    Your team can't win the next Super Bowl ...

    Chiefs for sure. Wouldn't mind the Bills (zero shot) or Browns (close to zero shot) winning it. I have a good friend who's a lifelong Vikings fan. He called me about a half hour after the Eagles won the Super Bowl to congratulate me. I wouldn't mind him experiencing the same joy I felt that night.

    Benched today, huh?

    Week 11: Steelers @ Browns

    That has to be a multiple game suspension for Garrett. Along with a massive fine. Not sure that Pouncey deserves a suspension for his kicking. The ref should have flagged the Browns for roughing the passer in the first place. That's what started the whole damn thing. It was way late and completely unnecessary.

    I did. Thanks so much for the courteous reply.

    Has he had anything to say yet about the Vikings game?

    That would probably actually be horrible.

    Black Monday: Who's on the Hot Seat in 2019? Who gets fired?

    He wasn't their interim HC last year. Gregg Williams was. He was their OC.

    Rams send Aqib Talib and a pick to Dolphins

    Yeah, but if he's going to be inactive the rest of the year, I'm sure he'd rather be on a team that has a chance of actually getting a Super Bowl ring.

    Rolling R-word's (Trademark Pending) updates..

    It's my understanding that if he's "out for the year" with what is officially classified as a non-football injury, it will not count as an accrued season for him.

    Isn't Ward a "non-starter" for the Browns?

    Giants fans... Talk about the Giants

    Jones looks a helluva lot better than Haskins anyway. To be honest, I think Giants fans have to be encouraged by what Jones has shown thus far. He's not a complete clusterf like some rookies. And you can see that he has a good arm and is mobile. The real bugaboo has been the turnovers, which is not necessarily unexpected for a rookie. The key will be whether he can reduce them in future years. If so, he could be a good one. If not, then, well, he'll be mediocre.

    Probably something to do with the baseball playoffs. In case there were postponements and they had to play two 7th games today.

    Exactly. 100% Carr's fault. He's an idiot. I can see making a wild effort on fourth down, but it was second down.

    Root for the Raiders and Cardinals.

    I think he got banned too. I remember that people kinda liked him because he was pretty funny and good natured rather than obnoxious.
