rickm posted a topic in Around the NFLI believe the NFL’s policy regarding the pre-Super Bowl Championships is dead wrong. I researched the issue and just self-published an article on-line titled "Wake-up NFL And Join Reality--A Suggestion To The Owners: Restore Those Ignored NFL Championship Games.” I'm a big Eagles fan and we have 3 championships that are arbitrarly ignored. Why aren't pre-Super Bowl NFL Championships not counted for the real total? Every other major league sport counts all championships from the league's origin (1937 for the NFL). If you have 10 minutes, here’s the article. Paste it in your browser or go to Medium.com and search for the title of this post. https://medium.com/@ric62551/wake-up-nfl-and-join-reality-62c5496132f
Team President Bruce Allen is said to have received a call from league officials who stated the big intentional grounding call on Kirk Cousins was the incorrect call. The Redskins were driving and in winning field goal range, the penalty took them out of range. This would have resulted in a 3rd down for the Skins and another attempt to move down the field for a first or at least get in better FG range. After such a devastating loss that would have helped provide a bit of cushion for the Eagles 1st seed hopes, this can't make Redskins fans feel any better. https://247sports.com/nfl/washington-redskins/Bolt/Report-League-officials-inform-Redskins-of-blown-call-110785146
Wallyhorse posted a topic in Around the NFLThought of this with the NFL Draft going on and all the talk this past season in the NBA in particular: What if the NFL had a lottery for all of the non-playoff teams similar to the NBA and NHL where each team (even one that failed to make the playoffs at 11-5) has a chance of getting a Top 3 pick, with the team with the worst record given the best chance, 2nd worst getting the next best chance at the top pick, and so forth with the Top 3 determined that way and if a team moves into the top 3, the rest move down one spot. Such could probably be done as a one-hour prime time special on ESPN and/or NFL Network in the run-up to the Super Bowl much like the NBA version is done as a half-hour special before the ESPN telecast of (this year) the (Western) Conference Finals. There would probably be a lot of talk of ping-pong balls if the NFL used the NBA's formula for determining the top three picks.
