It was kind of weird how Pittsburgh seemed to be doing really well for 11 games, and then all of a sudden they weren't. Some strange JuJu, I guess. After that first Pittsburgh play, it just looked like they were in for a long night. It reminded me of a similar play by Denver in the 2014 Superbowl.

Anyway, congratulations to Cleveland, and good luck... vs. Kansas City. Yikes.

Is Big Ben done? I don't want to retire a guy over one game but boy oh boy did he look done yesterday. Steelers will be paying him something like 40 million next year, yikes!

regardless o' the dc, personnel issues is gonna be the biggest concern for the dallas defense during the off-season. 

situation were terrible for nolan. covid-19 hits and a new dc from outside the organization attempts to change the defensive scheme including new nomenclature with the benefit o' far fewer practices than would be ordinary available. a couple key injuries further stymied efforts, but injuries is predictable. 'course once nolan lost the confidence o' the team, were no chance to fix problems. nolan had to go.

so, bring in a new dc with decent defensive pedigree who will once again change the scheme while facing numerous (likely) personnel changes due to fa moves as well as need deal with similar covid restrictions as last year lasting deep into summer (reduced) practices. also, the dallas defense doesn't have the kinda interior d-line presence quinn enjoyed in seattle, and am not sure fa and the draft will be transformative.

am kinda liking neville gallimore potential, but less so with quinn's scheme, which is too bad. am not a dallas fan, but am always rooting for the Kanadians playing big in the nfl and the dallas d-line is representing most o' the canadian d-linemen playing in the nfl... well, at least the starters.

HA! Good Fun!

Bill Belichick Says He Won’t Accept Medal of Freedom From Trump After Capitol Riot

“Recently, I was offered the opportunity to receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, which I was flattered by out of respect for what the honor represents and admiration for prior recipients,” Belichick said in a statement. “Subsequently, the tragic events of last week occurred and the decision has been made not to move forward with the award.” 

HA! Good Fun!

And then McCarthy hired his old Packers DB coach, Joe Whitt. It's not that there's anything necessarily wrong with these guys, it's just...it's same old McCarthy doing the same old crap, and I just can't think this is going to really work out.

Robert Saleh is the new Jets head coach. This was the guy I was hoping for. The only real downside is I can see him trying to keep Sam Darnold 'cause he's a defensive guy and imo we'd be better off trading Sam and starting over.

I remember when Seahawks fans were bummed about losing DC Quinn after a couple of SBs with the Legion of Boom. Looks like his reputation has taken a bit of a turn since then.

Not only that, but your offensive coordinator is Matt LaFleur from the 49ers too. That particular Shanahan branch of offensive coaches has been highly successful so far, interested to see if Matt LaFleur will be as well.

@rjshae Quinn completely inherited the Legion of Boom, too - while they did play better under him than the previous DC they had, I've noticed over the years that a lot of coordinators who previously had great talent in their system aren't able to adjust very well when their talent isn't nearly as good.

Packers, Bucs, Ravens (Not super sold on this.), Browns (It's been 3 weeks since Patrich Mahomes has played. I'm bettin' he comes out rusty and it takes him well into the second half to get going.)

The Chiefs are so good that they got bored and sleepwalked their way through the second half of the season. It will be interesting to see whether they can just flip the switch or if it takes them a while (potentially too long) to get into gear.

I don't feel comfortable picking any of these games. Packers-Rams feels like the most likely game to tilt one way, but the Packers have lost to NFC West teams with great defenses in the playoffs so often over Rodgers' career that I can't feel good about this even though it's theoretically the easiest matchup out of everything remaining. Saints-Buccaneers is a toss-up but I tend to go with the team that smoked the other twice even though the Buccaneers have clearly gotten better over the last month. For some reason, I favor the Browns over the Chiefs - I'm not really sure why, though. Most likely, Browns will Browns it, but... Bills-Ravens is also a toss-up, so I guess I'll favor the home team.

Did they change the taunting rule in the NFL? Because it sure seemed like there was a lot of that this year.

I thought the Ravens had gotten their **** together. I am a fool.
