The “Sideline Cam” video of Diggs’ game-winning TD is unreal 🔥 *SOUND ON*

lagoon I find your lack of purple pride disturbing

The Titans are the first NFL team in 15 years to change head coaches after a season in which they won a playoff game.

mookieproof, Monday, 15 January 2018 22:08 (two years ago) link

man I couldn't even recall who the hell they beat but then I remembered lol Andy Reid

I'm naturally biased against the Vikings but last night was cool as hell - you could see the script forming, the Vikings lack of experience vs. the seasoned and well-traveled Saints, Drew Brees coming through again while the Vikings choke yet another playoff game that they easily should have won....and then everything flipping on one freak play
the fact that it happened at home made it even better, just an awesome moment all around

also love that Super Bowl 52 will be started by either Nick Foles or Case Keenum and potentially Blake Bortles as well

frogbs, Monday, 15 January 2018 22:39 (two years ago) link

I'd love to see the Jags knock off the Pats by just running it down their throat and have Bortles break out with some early 70s pass line only throwing the ball say a dozen times.

earlnash, Tuesday, 16 January 2018 23:29 (two years ago) link

Cutting the Pats time of possession down is about the best way to fight your real high powered pass offense. Jacksonville is going to need a bit of fortune and get a couple turn overs and not make mistakes.

Bortles foibles aside, the Jags and Vikings play a pretty old school type of football. It's not all that different than what Parcell's did when he was with the Giants right down to that big line man two TE setup that the Jags like to use. That is straight out of the ole' Giants playbook with Mark Bavaro and Zeke Mowatt. Gibbs in Washington liked to run that same setup with a single back. NE had a higher octane passing version of it playing on mis-matches with Gronk and Hernandez.

I wonder what exactly were ownerships expectations for this year's Titans team? very strange

bhad and bhabie (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 17 January 2018 13:46 (two years ago) link

from what i read mularkey was asked to make changes to his staff, said no, and got canned.

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 17 January 2018 13:59 (two years ago) link

they asked him to hire an oc instead of doing it himself and he refused. if they are smart they are wondering why derrick henry only became the feature guy after murray got hurt but most likely they are wondering why they didn't get more return on the big payout for murray, and they are looking at the rams and chiefs and thinking - rightly or wrongly, idk - that they ought to be achieving more with mariota. there really isn't much about their offensive personnel to get excited about tho.

Roberto Spiralli, Wednesday, 17 January 2018 14:18 (two years ago) link

or i guess fire the guy they have as oc and find someone to really take over running the offense

Roberto Spiralli, Wednesday, 17 January 2018 14:22 (two years ago) link

titans can't handle getting above .500; we demand mediocrity

Roberto Spiralli, Wednesday, 17 January 2018 17:22 (two years ago) link

Interesting that bad thing's happen to star players right before playing the Patriots. Just like Mariotas family going undercover from what was thought to be a missle attack the day they play the Patriots. Stuff happens way too much when playing the Patriots.

todd haley out. i think that was the right place to start for pburgh.

Roberto Spiralli, Wednesday, 17 January 2018 18:14 (two years ago) link

name le'veon bell the oc so he'll feel valued

mookieproof, Wednesday, 17 January 2018 18:45 (two years ago) link

they were a top 10 offense and scored 42 in a playoff game, idk if Haley was the dude to blame

frogbs, Wednesday, 17 January 2018 18:57 (two years ago) link

eh they have a top tier qb and the best rb and wr in the league. that offense should be setting records, never mind top 10. there are other things too - a lot has been made of them having one of the lowest % of play action calls despite the threat of bell.

they have more fundamental problems but i certainly think letting haley walk was a good start. personally, i hate the way the roster is constructed with so much investment in a handful of stars. on the one hand you get an offense that can score those 42 points off of just a handful of big plays, but on the other hand you get a defense that is like heyward + tuitt + scrubs and it's a disaster. and that's even if the big names stay healthy.

Roberto Spiralli, Wednesday, 17 January 2018 19:16 (two years ago) link

haley seems to have a shelf life as far as anyone wanting to be around him goes.

call all destroyer, Wednesday, 17 January 2018 19:23 (two years ago) link

sounds like roffles just doesn't like haley, and keeping him happy/unretired is obviously a priority

Brady will play even if they have to create a contraption that moves his arm for him

fuck you, your hat is horrible (Neanderthal), Thursday, 18 January 2018 00:53 (two years ago) link

dont run into bradys hand number one rule of patriots football

lag∞n, Thursday, 18 January 2018 00:55 (two years ago) link

Brady should have "tucked" that hand away sooner.

bread bags of courage (brownie), Thursday, 18 January 2018 00:57 (two years ago) link

jets somehow fired their oc john morton, literally the only person on their staff who came out of yet another shitty season looking good

Roberto Spiralli, Thursday, 18 January 2018 01:18 (two years ago) link

How confident are you in the Jaguars? Probably not as confident as Kelly Allen, who says he just got this tattoo predicting a Super Bowl win. #Sacksonville #DTWD

every year there's one. this seems even earlier tho? maybe it's the same guy every time.

Roberto Spiralli, Thursday, 18 January 2018 21:02 (two years ago) link

strong visual very confident

fuck you, your hat is horrible (Neanderthal), Friday, 19 January 2018 01:12 (two years ago) link

ok, who ya got?

here is the key information i have accrued about vikes @ iggles

vikings have the best defense at stopping 3rd down conversions since the stat started to be tracked in 1991
nick foles has the worst 3rd down conversion % among starting qbs this year
(carson wentz had the best 3rd down rate earlier in the season)

vikings subpar o-line just about held together thru the regular season until they had to make adjustments after losing their LG at the end of december. now the wear is starting to show and it is bad, and looked real bad against the saints.
the strongest part of the eagles' roster is their elite and deep offensive line. the eagles forced the most 3 and outs, gave opposing qbs the shortest amount of time to throw, gave opposing teams the shortest total time of possession per game, and gave up the fewest rushing yards per game. keenum was either one of the best or the best qb vs pressure this season, depending on whose stats you use.

Roberto Spiralli, Friday, 19 January 2018 17:51 (two years ago) link

whatever happens it should be an electrifying shootout

lag∞n, Friday, 19 January 2018 18:02 (two years ago) link


Roberto Spiralli, Friday, 19 January 2018 18:03 (two years ago) link

this thing about Brady's hand seems like a non-issue but the line just dropped 2 points so what do I know

(I got in at Jags +9.5 so I'm feelin' good right now)

frogbs, Friday, 19 January 2018 18:04 (two years ago) link

the sags

lag∞n, Friday, 19 January 2018 18:07 (two years ago) link

how does a stadium full of philly fans wearing creepy dog masks impact the line

Mordy, Friday, 19 January 2018 18:09 (two years ago) link

brady injury thing is a good reminder that the line is about predicting and responding to how ppl bet, and only part of that has to do with who might win the game. i think the crazy line in the first place was mostly brand recognition. there are a lot of ppl whose only bets during the year are late playoff games and the kentucky derby and they have to be accounted for

Roberto Spiralli, Friday, 19 January 2018 18:14 (two years ago) link

jags will win the nfl playoffs

my prediction is one of these last 4 teams will be playing a super bowl in their home stadium. i won't say which one tho!!

Roberto Spiralli, Friday, 19 January 2018 18:44 (two years ago) link

Brady is going to win the AFC title game with a bad thumb and Belichick is going to award Patriot of the Week to the glove.
