I can't tell you how disappointed I was that Cinci didn't win, just for the mere possibility they meet again in the playoffs. And to be fair, bloodbath aside that was a great game. As was the playoff implosion a while back. I'd say the over the top violence is a side effect of what makes it a great series.

But yeah, the league is a joke.

Aside from your first statement (as a Steelers fan, I was glad the Steelers won) I totally agree. That game was very entertaining. I kind of found the media reaction of how horrible the game was funny, because it was probably the most entertaining game I've seen in a while.

And yeah, the league is a joke.

After reading through reports about Shazier’s surgery, he should probably give up football. Recovery is 4-6 months just to walk and move without issues. Too bad too cause football has been the dude’s life since he was 4, as a way to cope with alopecia and the constant teasing.

Matt Ryan is making some terrible decisions.  It's like he thinks if he just throws it in JJ's direction, he'll complete it.  That 3rd pick, there was no way he could even see Jones he was so well covered.

Just like the Saints/niners divisional game in 2011. That 2009 SB victory may be the only one I ever see.

If that's about Sean Payton, I agree that he's criminally overrated but that INT is squarely on Drew. Fuckin threw the ball when a beyond-shitty TE was completely engaged by a DB. Even Jimmy Graham would've had trouble hauling that in. Josh Hill has been stealin money here for years so who in their right mind would ever expect him to make that play?

The worst thing about Payton was it wasn't even a "do we or don't we" call.  Or bad clock management, something like that.   His players were keeping a cool head, and literally marching down the field on offense (but for the INT) and he goes and blows his stack.   That was beyond bad.

They snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.  Matt Ryan did everything he could to lose that one, but Drew had to one-up him.

Both coaches shit the bed big time in that game last night.

Oh, and the officiating was atrocious.  How do the Saints not get to kick the FG again at the end of the half when the whistle was blowing the play dead while the kick was in the air (meaning the clock should not have run out)?  I love how that was never explained.

Right?  It's not like an illegal formation penalty is called 4 seconds after the snap.

I don't think I've ever seen the NFC so wide open this late in the season.  Right now, these would be the playoff team (you could make a strong argument for why any of those teams can make the Super Bowl):

Minnesota 10-2
Philly 10-2
LA Rams 9-3
New Orleans 9-4
Seattle 8-4
Carolina 8-4

Plus, while Matt Ryan isn't playing like he did last year, Atlanta, who is barely the odd team out right now, could get easily get hot and make a run like last year.  And while they are 6-6, there is always the slim chance that the Packers could squeeze in, if they beat Cleveland today, and then Rodgers comes back, they win out, and the tiebreakers fall their way.

Minnesota at Carolina and Philly at Rams are two huge games today in deciding what the NFC playoff picture will look like.

Wentz is done for the game with a knee injury he suffered before throwing his 4th TD of the game. Hoping that he's not out for the year

That was ugly. And Quentin Jefferson trying to jump into the stands to attack the fans that were throwing beer at him just made worse. Those Jags fans escalated things too. Tomorrow is going to be a day full of suspensions and penalizations.

That sucks.  You hate to see a talent like that get hurt when he was having such a great breakout season.

The end of the Seahawks/Jags game was nuts, but not in a good way.

Seahawks acting like crybaby sore losers...again.  They are easily the most dislikable team in the NFL (despite having one of the most likable QBs).

Great teams rise above.

Like in 2011 when Patriots fans everywhere said they would have beaten the Giants in the Super Bowl if Gronk had been healthy?

Or in 2015 when Patriots fans everywhere blamed their late season decline on the O-line not being very good?

Great examples of rising above, right? :P
