    Week 14: Cowboys @ Bears

    If the Eagles are going to stink, at least I can take solace that the Cowboys stink too. Yeah. As soon as I think the Eagles are done, the Cowboys go back and swing that door open for them again.

    Week 14 Schedule

    Interesting playoffs scenario this week: 49ers can clinch a playoff spot this week with a win and Rams loss. However, the 49ers should be rooting for a Rams win instead, over the Seahawks who they are tied with in standings. (Seahawks have a head-to-head win, but they play each other Week 17. A Seahawks loss against a division opponent will help the 49ers.) Week 14 playoff-clinching scenarios

    Ex NFL players as Announcers and Media analysts.

    I am old enough to remember John Madden announce games in the 1980's, when he was both knowledgeable and fun to listen to, before he became a mock of himself. (John Madden was drafted by the Eagles, got injured and retired before playing professionally, before becoming a famous head coach.) His longtime partner in the booth was a former NFL player; Pat Summerall played as a kicker. Romo is fantastic when he's calling a good game. I don't mind Collinsworth. He brings his personality into the broadcast, where he is self-centered and kind of annoying, but he still knows what he's talking about. Favre is dumb as bricks. He'd be like a dumber version of Terry Bradshaw with an even thicker accent. Peyton Manning would be great in the booth if he wants to, judging from his past commercials and SNL appearances.

    But I would love to see him go to the Giants.

    49ers holding

    The 49ers aren't perfect, but they find a way. Reminds me of 2017 Eagles

    49ers holding

  7. The Bills used to schedule one game per season in Toronto. They felt having that game there would keep a team from relocating to Toronto full-time. So I don't think they would support a permanent franchise in Canada, but they would allow the occasional neutral site game.
  8. Under this proposal LINK the NFL will add a 17th, neutral-site game. I believe the NFL feels like they have something to offer fans in Europe, Canada, and Mexico. And they feel like scheduling games there will attract fans.

    The Hypocrisy of Kaepernick in 4 Stories

    A big reason why Kaepernick wanted the workout in public, on YouTube:
  10. You do see Premier League teams scheduling friendly matches in USA stadiums. Premier League has a national TV contract with NBC, and other international soccer leagues are on cable. So those soccer clubs have found an audience by reaching out. I know some immigrant Brits who have taken to American football on this side of the pond, and the Mexico games are attended well, so NFL must think they have potential growth there.
  11. This seems to be a leaked proposal regarding a potential 17-game season after 2019: Each team gets 2 byes. Playoffs will be extended through the end of February. It seems every team will play a neutral site game each season, either in London, in Canada, a college town, or somewhere else. Preseason will be reduced. Interesting.

    Myles Garrett Assault Needs Its Own Thread

    Senseless. The game was over. There was no need for this. Garrett put some extra in the hit on Rudolph. Rudolph grabbed Garrett's helmet in the scrum, so he's not without fault. But it's nothing compared to Garrett yanking Rudolph's helmet off and hitting him with it. The whole thing was ugly. Suspend Garrett for the season. Haynesworth faced a 5-game suspension for stomping a player. Pouncey should be looking at that much.

    Chargers Potential Move to London is messed up

    Does it? I think San Diego makes the most sense, but Spanos already burned that bridge.

    Chargers Potential Move to London is messed up

    Spanos is an idiot. San Diego wanted the team and were willing to work together to build a new stadium. Instead, the Chargers felt like they had a fanbase in LA and they had to move there to protect it, because the Rams and Raiders had interest in moving to LA too. Their stadium proposal with the Raiders was denied because the Rams had a better plan. Now the Chargers play in an inadequate soccer stadium, pricing out San Diego fans who might have made the trek north, and LA fans largely are not interested in the Chargers. The Chargers left an engaged city and now they're homeless.
