Wallyhorse posted a topic in Around the NFLNot a surprise because this has been rumored for some time: Suspect they did that knowing if they opened with the Pats in that game, Chiefs and Saints fans would be very upset because they felt they were both robbed and that Super Bowl win carries a huge asterisk (not to mention what has come out since against Robert Kraft). Pats will play Week 1 Sunday night opener against an opponent to be determined. I would have myself had the Pats open on the road in Week 1 and then play their home opener in Week 2 on Thursday night that also would have been on NBC and treated as if it were the season opening game as this would fully compensate NBC for losing the Week 17 Sunday Nighter in 2017. FOX/NFL Network would have been compensated for losing the Week 2 Thursday nighter by getting EITHER: A "Black Friday" game in London with a 2:30 PM ET (7:30 PM local time) kickoff (and the Premier League plays mid-week fixtures so the NFL could do a Friday night game in London). If this were done, teams would get their bye week ahead of this game. OR A Week 15 or 16 Friday Night game that would have teams playing that game getting their bye week in Week 14 or 15.
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.
