NFL 2018



  • @KiwiMurph There's a lot of dart throwing there. Kitchens has at least shown he can work with Mayfield. Arians is a good hire, so much for retirement eh? Kingsbury is a big punt, seeing as he hasn't even posted a winning record in college, and he benched Mayfield and couldn't get the best out of Mahommes. New GB coach Matt LeFleur's only claim to fame is his connection with McVey and Shanahan, but GB have Rodgers so don't need a guy whose specialty is developing a QB. Their main problem is they haven't bought any players to surround him with, and their defence is pus. I reckon they would have been better to hire Fangio to run the D as HC and give the offense reins over to Rodgers to run with a guy of his choice. But who knows, perhaps Aaron signed off on the new kid, you would like to hope so or it could end badly



  • Big news for the Steelers, Mike Munchak is staying on. This, IMO, is huge. Munchak could end up replacing Tomlin but the main thing is that the Steelers Offensive Line admin will remain intact. The OL was the one shining light throughout the season.



  • Adam Gase is set to get a new job. Fuck me there is some serious incompetence at GM and ownership level. Funny how certain coaches and players can keep getting work and yet a winning QB like CK can't merit a spot. It is definitely not what you know it's who you know that counts

    Worst fucking owners in the league. Thought things might be going a bit better with Woody over in London but they go and do this!

    Goes right back to Belicheck resigning because he didn't want to work with Johnson too, so not like it's anything new.

    Wasn't there a rumour the job was going to Mike McCarthy? He'd do well to give that one a miss

    Mccarthy supposedly was telling other teams he was only interested in the jets. I don't think there was anything coming out of the jets that they wanted Mccarthy. Although supposedly Maccaganan and Johnson are demanding quite a lot of power which Mccarthy and Matt Rhule both refused. So possibly Gase was the last man standing.

    Rhule and a promising OC was probably my first choice, followed by Monken, then Mccarthy then Gase.

    I know it's the college game but Clemson are hammering Alabama 44-16 in the national title game. That is a pumping

    Good result. Happy with that, Alabama are a seriously good programme, but easy to get annoyed by 😀

    Also, the Clemson coach had adopted a heap of all black influences, so that's pretty cool too. Dabo Sweeny met sir Graham and didn't know who he was apparently!

    I don't think Gase is that bad of a hire. The Dolphins are a mess of an organisation and he didn't do too badly there considering he had pretty much nothing to work with at QB. Now he has Darnold.

    But they're the Jets. At least he'll be used to working in a dumpster fire

    Ownership issues aside he'll have Darnold and Adams, $100 million cap space, decent draft capital including #3 and only one poor contract (Johnson). It's a good spot to drop into.



  • I enjoyed the games today.

    Mahomes and the Chiefs are just fun to watch. Happy for Chiefs fans to get a home win and get to host the AFC title game next week. Their much maligned defense looked good playing with a lead too.

    Always good to see the Cowboys lose. Goff didnt look nearly as good as Mahomes but was able to hold his nerve with the Rams running game on fire. Cowboys hyped running game meanwhile was shut down.

    Both games were decided at the line of scrimmage. Still important in the playoffs even with the modern day rules.



  • Seems to be revenge of the top seeds this week. I wonder if everyone forgot just how good the Chiefs and Rams were, given all the buzz was around the Cowboys and Colts coming in. And now the Pats trounce the Chargers, was 38-7 at one point.

    Eagles are looking to buck the trend - picked of Brees on the first possession of the game and now score from a Nick Foles long ball. This game could be a beauty.



  • That AFC title game next week is going to be an absolute beauty



  • Yeah next week is going to be great, regardless of who wins out of Saints/Eagles.

    At this stage it's looking like the Eagles, who are dominating. The Saints seem desperate to air it out on offense, which is ridiculous considering they have Kamara and Ingram in the team.

    Eagles are just working their way down again and the Saints don't look like they are able to stop them.



  • Saints get up by six. Quite a turnaround from the first quarter - Brees stepped up on multiple occasions and the Saints D kept the Eagles scoreless in the second half.

    Rams vs Saints and Chiefs vs Pats next week, with all four results well in play.

    Top four teams this year in the championship games. All of them capable of winning the big dance. Feels like the first time in a while we haven't had a plucky underdog putting together a great post season run.



  • I'm very happy to see Patriots on the road. Arrowhead is going to be rocking. I think I saw somewhere that Patriots have not won a road playoff game in over a decade.

    Have they had a road play off game in the last decade?

    They've lost their last 3 away playoff games. All 3 were AFC Championship Games. All 3 to Peyton Manning too. '06 AFC Title game @ Indy, '13 AFC Title game @ Denver, 16 AFC Title game @ Denver.
