    Just wanted to give a quick thanks for another successful season with your guidance. I made it to the championship Week#16 (lost because the guy had Barkley-53pts and colts defense-41pts) but still walked away with over 900 bucks for 2nd place and most points. See ya's next season. Thanks again

    The Victory Pants were retired after the Royals won the World Series in 2015. There they are: framed in glass on the wall in my garage, next to my other sports memorabilia. Underneath is a small hammer with a sign: "Break Only In Case of Emergency" This may be that time.

    This game had nothing to do with offensive weapons, or lack thereof. SF dominated in the trenches, just like they did last week. Only difference is GB has a slightly better line than MIN (and Cousins is no Rodgers, obviously). But, let’s be real.... both games were over by the half. Heck.... this one was over midway through the 2nd quarter. The Niners’ O-Line makes Coleman look like a star one week, and Mostert the next. And their D makes better than average offenses look pretty mediocre. Should be interesting to watch what is very clearly the best offense go against the best defense. Usually, when push comes to shove, the defense prevails in those situations. But, Mahomes is pretty special. Looking forward to it. And, yeah, Rodgers is still pretty good. He makes throws every week that only a handful of guys could make. Again, the SF defense makes studs look pretty blah. Let’s not forget that they weren’t at full strength when they gave up 30+ to NOS. Nor were they in either SEA game. Much difference team with Dee Ford, Kwon, etc. Between their D and O-Line, Jimmy G doesn’t have to do much. Game manager might be an understatement.

    I cannot wait until Skippy takes over the Pats without Bill and Tom to do the heavy lifting. I don't see him as some genius, I see him as somebody average or better that benefited from a great team. Ever since he backed out on the Colts job I've thought he's unlikely to land a HC job anywhere but NE. And not the good Pats we've all put up with for 20 years, but the Pats of the old days who mostly sucked.

    Back to McCarthy... Sources say one of the most important factors in Mike McCarthy taking the Cowboys coaching job was that he'd have January and Februarys off!

    Thank you everyone, it was a strange but fun Fantasy Football season. Hopefully some people hang around during the off-season so we can bust chops and discuss free agency, transactions, etc. HAPPY NEW YEAR

    Should be a great game. I am surprised to see that the over/under for total TD's in this game is 3.5. I'd take the over on that all day. I'm pulling for KC for a few reasons. Can't help but pull for Reid, have family in KC, and part of it might be just a Midwest thing. Not to mention, there are a lot of people here in SoCal who pull for anything "West Coast," and I have a tendency to cheer for the underdog (or against what the majority is pulling for). Don't particularly care for bandwagon fans, and the bottom half of CA is full of them. Probably why they've never been able to sustain a pro team, much less two. When things go sour, people go find something else to do. Speaking of underdogs, I certainly do not see the Niners as the underdog in this game. To me, they are the more impressive team, in terms of what they've done coming into this matchup. Their D is legit. Ohter than the second CB, there are no weaknesses. And, as much as I don't really like Sherman, he's still very good. Good enough, anyway, that opposing QB's (even the best) tend to not throw his way as much as possible. I do agree that he's not fast enough to keep up with Hill, so that may be a concern, but we'll see. Another thing about SF. They are seasoned. Toughest second half of the season in the league, and they got through a big chunk of it with major missing pieces. Still managed to grab the 1-seed (albeit barely). Then, went on to absolutely throttle MIN and GB. Meanwhile, KC trailed big in both of their two playoff games. Ended up winning both convincingly, but it wasn't pure domination from the start like it was for SF. Not sure that means anything, but SF just feels like they're on a mission. There's no letting up with them. KC, meanwhile, had better not get too comfortable coming from behind... If they get down big to SF, I don't see them coming back in the same fashion that they have the past two weeks. I look at it like this. The SF defense and KC offense are arguably both the best in the league. But, SF has a dominant offense as well. The Chiefs' defense is average. Eye test, statistically, or whatever form of measurement you want to use. They're better than past years (when they were ranked 30+), but they're still middle of the pack. Coaching and special teams, you can make an argument for either side. Reid has the experience. Shanahan has the pedigree. Butker is great, but Gould isn't bad himself. And, as much as I love the speed of the Chiefs, that James guy is pretty fast also. So, it comes down to which defense can make the opposing offense the most uncomfortable. And, as much as I would like KC to win this game, I can envision SF's defense dominating this game much easier than I can imagine the KC defense stopping the Niners rushing attack. All of that said, Mahomes is special. And Jimmy G isn't. Big edge for KC there. That's not to say that Jimmy isn't talented, but as much as I wouldn't want to be behind in this game if I"m KC, I could say the same about SF. Man, this is a tough one to call. I think that is what it comes down to. Which team will win... the one with the best player on the planet with the average defense, or the team that is REALLY good on both sides of the ball, but has an average QB.

    Pump the brakes on the disrespect card a bit. I'm seeing the Vegas line at pickem to -1 with public money nearly 50/50. The main points I hear repeated is that while KC has the decided edge at QB; San Fran is the better all around team. So far this truly seems like a SB where there is no consensus on who is going to win.

    Not sure where the 9ers homer goggles comment is coming from. I’ve seen nothing on here of actual knowledgeable 9er fans being anything but optimistic about a pretty darn good team. I do think they have a great shot to win but KC has a great shot as well they are a dynamic offensive juggernaut. And as far as the Sherman thing it seems like you may have the anti-Sherman goggles on. As you have stated you can’t stand him and in YOUR OPINION he’s not a very good CB. I’ve watched every second of every niner game this year and as BB stated he’s no spring chicken anymore but more than holds his own as a very solid CB. There’s a reason QBs don’t throw his way often and when they do they have a 48 QBR. I’m excited for the chance to win the big one again and am really glad that most everyone I’ve talked to already has KC raising the Lombardi... love being the underdog it only gives you room to go up! Not many expect them to beat mahomes and co. It has really been a year of proving themselves worthy week in and week out! So why the hell not go be special one more week in the big one! Hi Bier! I’ll be having a beer in spirit with you during the game as we did when we watched the niners playoff game years ago at my house! ( And FYI as CD said Mikes hair is glorious) Good Luck CD! And if it was any other year I’d be rooting for you as I really like KC and Reid! Should be a good one but I hope you piss your victory pants! Let Go Niners!!

    Meh. Cousins is what he is. A very accurate passer when given the time to throw. He doesn't handle pressure well. There are two ways to fix that... Either protect him more, or replace him with a better QB. I'd argue that the first option is much easier than the second. Neither are "easy," but the Vikings have failed to put adequate resources towards upgrading their O-Line for years. It was a problem 3-4 years ago with Bradford and Hill at QB. It was a problem with Keenum, and it's a problem now. Trying to "find" a better QB than a guy who is, at worst, average in terms of starting NFL QB's, is not easy to do. Half of the league is looking to find a better QB than what they have. And, most of THOSE teams would take Cousins in a heartbeat. Maybe not at the salary that he's being paid, but strictly in terms of talent. Cousins isn't one of the best QB's in the league, but he's certainly not one of the worst, either. And, frankly, he won more games for the Vikings than he lost. When you look at their losses (GBx2, CHIx2, SEA, SF in the playoffs), Cousins wasn't the primary issue in any of them. O-Line was a huge problem in most, if not all, of those games. Defense was a problem as well, at least at times. Play-calling was suspect on a few occasions (although I'd argue that some of that can also be attributed to what they were working with, offensive line wise). But, pass protection (or lack thereof) is the one true trend. And, I'm not talking lack of "great" pass protection. I'm talking give your QB more than 1-2 seconds to make a decision. I was on the fence about the Cousins signing when it happened. But he certainly is an upgrade over Keenum. Both QB's suffered embarassing playoff losses against teams with dominant pass rush defenses. The Vikings' potential is limited to "good but not great" until they improve the O-Line.

    My assessment as an unbiased onlooker.... There are a lot more things that San Fran needs to do in order to win this game so I think you're right on that. I disagree with you on a few things. First, The WR assessment is a strong advantage in KC's favor, especially when considering D Williams out of the backfield. When Sammy Watkins is the 4th option, and your 5th option runs a 4.3/ 40, that is frightening. I would also argue that while San Fran's defense is better, I don't believe they have a strong edge in this particular matchup. The 9ers secondary is very vulnerable with the Chiefs speed at WR. The KC offensive line is ranked 4th in Pass protection this season so I don't see them being bullied by the 9ers d-line like we've seen. On the flip side, the 9ers o-line is ranked 15th in Pass pro, so the defensive line of KC could certainly swing the defensive battle a bit towards KC. KC's defense is greatly improved over the second half of the season. Honey Badger has been an absolute force, So again, I agree, overall, 9ers Def ha the edge BUT to me, in this particular matchup, its a slight edge. I also don't agree that the coaching edge is with San Fran. Lets not forget who designed the defense that shut down the 18-0 Patriots in 2007. Spags has a lot more weapons on this defense than he did back then. Chris Jones is a run stopping force and he came out of last weeks game without aggravation of his injury. 2 more weeks off will work wonders for him. Andy Reid is an absolute force coming off a bye week (17-3). People will argue he has had some late game management issues, that's somewhat fair but overblown in my opinion. If we are going to knock him for that, lets not forget who the OC was for the Falcons in that utter collapse vs NE a few years ago. Ultimately this should be a classic game. QB: Strong edge KCC RB: Strong edge SF WR: Strong edge KCC TE: Very slight edge to SF for Kittle's blocking (rec is a push) PK: Push ST: Edge KCC Defense: Edge SF Coaching: Edge KC 34-27 Chiefs

    I think both brees/NOS, and rodgers/GBP are both still in great positions to make runs (and still have the skills to do it)... great #1 wrs, excellent rb options, better defenses than then have had in a while (and good defenses). both could use another wr. NFC is a battleground now with Min, Seattle, now SF is in the game, rams have a load of talent...

    And somebody in another thread said they didn't think Brees or Rodgers were capable of "getting over the hump" anymore. Just shows how ridiculous a statement like that is.

    The real Cowboy fans such as yourself are cool as F. It's the degenerate bandwagon Cowboy fans that everyone despises. You know who they are. They can't find Dallas on a map and haven't been within a thousand miles of Texas. Most of the ones I meet are phonies. This is why everyone hates Dallas, it has nothing to do with the Wins or jealousy. At least that's how I feel. The true Cowboy fans kick ass!

    I see you're a Jets fan, so I will weigh that into the intelligence curve here 2016 top road draw NFL 2017 see below 2018 3rd ranked road draw in all of sports . # 1 in NFL 2019 could not find the data but I assume you can see a trend here Keep in mind , these numbers are generated by Mediocre Cowboys teams. Agreed that we haven't been a powerhouse since the early 90s yet we are still a top draw . Saying we are the most valuable franchise in sports is irrelevant is complete ignorance . Popularity and your fan base generates revenue . Its certainly not just Texas homers generating these figures , its the nationwide fan base https://scholarblogs.emory.edu/esma/2017/06/17/nfl-fan-base-and-brand-rankings-2017/ https://seatgeek.com/tba/sports/these-are-the-visiting-teams-sports-fans-want-to-see-most/ https://www.bloggingtheboys.com/2016/8/5/12382996/nfls-best-and-worst-road-draws-cowboys-remain-a-top-road-draw-in-2016 I understand that it seems odd to call a team with limited success on the field Americas team , but they are . For every hater that roots for the Cowboys to lose more than they root for their own team to win , there is equal or more fans of the Cowboys . When my local teams are on primetime and their regular TV slot is open , id say 70% of the time , they put the Cowboys in that slot. They could put better performing teams in that slot , but they don't. Why is that ? So while you weep into your Namath jersey every night while abusing your privates , do so realizing that the Cowboys are now and always will be Americas team.

He told me the Rams will probably let him walk via FA in order to keep Fowler. The Rams are making mistakes all over the board. Jalen Ramsey for 2 1st round picks and a massive salary??? Idiots

    this, its not hard to see that Rodgers is a total D o u ch e nozzle. .618 winning % ( 5th amongst active coaches, Belicheck, Tomlin, Payton, Harbaugh) 6 division titles, 9 Playoff appearances, 4 NFC title games and a Superbowl in 13 years. The guy can coach. Cowboy fans wanted an alpha coach that Jerrah won't push around, here he is. The only concern i'd have is that in 13 years, Packers never had a top rushing game. Having said that, they never had an elite talent at RB. One of the things that wore on McCarthy was that Ted Thompson never went out and got players. Jerrah would kill his own son for another Superbowl, if Mike wants someone, he'll get em.

    It's been this way since 2008. The last time Week 17 didn't have every single game on the same day was in 2007 when on Saturday NE beat the NYG 38-35 to remain perfect and enter the playoffs 16-0. From 2008 until now all teams have played week 17 on the same day. 2002 was the last time there was a Monday night week 17 game. I believe the reason the NFL has all the teams play week 17 on the same day now and since 2008 is because they want to try to keep every game as meaningful as possible so they match up the times of those games that can affect each other. As in this year they pushed all the games to 4 PM that were in the mix for that final AFC Wildcard spot and had both Dallas and Philly playing at the same time.
