I feel if the Browns situation gets even worse than it already is then they should cancel all 6 games and push them back. In addition they should create a bubble in Florida considering the Super Bowl is there. The AFC teams can settle in Tampa (to avoid Bucs home field advantage) and the NFC teams in Miami and you can use Jacksonville and maybe Orlando for the Wild Card Weekend as well. You could play Colts Bills and Ravens Titans in Tampa, Rams Seahawks and Bears Saints in Miami, Bucs Washington and Browns Steelers in Jacksonville. The Chiefs and Packers would then fly down or if having additional time off along with the week they would have, they would then play the Dolphins and Cardinals respectfully. In that case Browns Steelers and Dolphins Chiefs would play in Orlando while Bucs Washington and Cardinals Packers would play in Jacksonville. The winners of the games in Orlando and Jacksonville would go to Tampa and Miami respectfully. The Super Bowl would still be played in Tampa.

The Browns continue to be decimated by covid-19. Now their head coach has the virus. That's on top of quite a few players having it. What a crappy situation for the Browns. They finally make the playoffs and then this happens. Now I don't think they stand a chance against us. Like THK said, I think we need to see more from Stefanski, but let's be real here, he's helped get the Browns to where they are now. Without him, the Browns will most likely lose by double digits, especially considering we're gonna be playing our starters this time around.

Kevin Stefanski definitely deserves consideration for coach of the year. However, I think it'll go to Bills coach Sean McDermott. He's turned Buffalo into a powerhouse. That's the team I think stands the best chance against the Chiefs in the playoffs. Maybe the Ravens can stand up to them too, but the Bills are the biggest threat to the Chiefs in my eyes.

I hope they remain competitive in the coming years because the AFC North will be a lot of fun with the Steelers, Ravens, and Browns in competition. Even the Bengals could join the mix if Burrow continues to improve gets an offensive line. ;)

Fixed it for you.  :lol:

I'm personally not THAT impressed by Stefanksi this season. He's at least somewhere between "not bad" and "good", and yes he'll probably win Coach of the Year on the narrative alone, but I feel like I need to see more before I buy into him.

People forget that the Browns were the most hyped team going into 2019 because of their suddenly very talented core. Baker Mayfield, Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham Jr, Nick Chubb & Kareem Hunt, Myles Garrett. If you take a closer look at that it's...basically the same core going into this season. Everyone just kind of forgot how talented they were because of how badly Freddie Kitchens fucked it up last year.

To me, the Browns' improvement from last year says less about Stefanski being great than it does about how awful Kitchens was. I'm certainly not dogging on Stefanski, but I personally feel like I need to see him sustain that success before I'm fully on board.

LOL, part of me wants to think that the NFC East is so bad that is normal Eagles football. But yeah, that was the most obvious tank job next to the 2011 Colts. Although I think Washington was the "best" team in that division anyways. Ron Rivera did a great job this season with that mess of an organization. They are definitely better than a 7-9 team, but the loss of Alex Smith hurt them. It doesn't matter which team won that division anyways since they will get blown out by the Bucs in the first round.  :afro:

Speaking of Ron Rivera, he definitely deserves a mention for Coach of the Year for taking Washington to the playoffs considering the mess of that organization. As I mentioned above, they are a lot better than their 7-9 record indicates. Flores of the Dolphins deserves a mention as well for almost getting the Dolphins to playoffs. But the award definitely should go to Kevin Stefanski of the Cleveland Browns. He took a team that was 0-16 three years ago to an 11-5 record. Honestly, the Browns should've won both the Ravens and Jets game and finished 13-3. They might've been the #2 seed if they didn't lose either of those games. I hope they remain competitive in the coming years because the AFC North will be a lot of fun with the Steelers, Ravens, and Browns in competition. Even the Bengals could join the mix if Burrow continues to improve. ;)

We basically used week 17 as a bye week, lol. I guess the Steelers knew the Bills would beat the Dolphins to lock up the #2 seed. I'm confident we can beat the Browns with all of our starters out there on the field, but if the Browns play like they did against the Titans and Ravens (the second game and more specifically, the offense; that defense better wake up), then we might be in trouble. If we get past them, then we're looking at a Bills match-up in the second round. I don't think we stand a chance against them. :(

Also, shame on Philly for basically tanking at the end of that game against Washington. The NFL should probably investigate that. It was obvious the Eagles didn't want to win that game to get a better draft position and who knows, maybe they really wanted to screw over the Giants in the process as well. :roll:

I haven’t left the state since last February so I would hope to see family again soon. I also want to get to some football and hockey games. Lastly, I hope to go out to dinner again and hopefully do so with a girlfriend. Sucks being single during a pandemic.

We’ve been summoned again


For the first time ever, all of our teams are in the playoffs!


I’ll start with my Packers, because why not. We got the number 1 seed in a very tight race. Wins against the Saints, Titans, and a sweep of the Bears helped big time and Aaron Rodgers is posting insane numbers even for his standards. He will probably receive the MVP for a third time and I’m hoping the Lombardi comes home.  :mrgreen: :mryellow:


Saints are probably our biggest threat in the conference. Yes we beat them early on but they got better after that. Hopefully Kamara will recover from COVID in time because they will need him. Drew Brees is getting old and did get hurt at one point. Mormon Tebow Taysom Hill has been a secret weapon a couple years now so not all hope is lost.


Seahawks are letting Russ cook and it is showing. Probably his best year yet and proving he belongs in the top tier of QBs. Defense a far cry from the Legion of Boom era that got them a title, but I see them contending big time.


Ah yeah the NFC Least hit peak shit this year  :roll: . It was so bad a team with no name won it. That being said Alex Smith and Ron Rivera have been major feel good stories this year recovering from a severe leg injury and cancer at one point. Unfortunately they were the shiniest of four turds and will not go far.


Brady has turned the Bucs into a legit contender. As the highest wild card they get a de facto bye for drawing Washington. After that good luck with the likes of the others. Bucs did get a win against the Packers but also got swept by the Saints, and also have losses to the Chiefs, Rams, and Bears. A consistent team would be dangerous for the rest because as long as Brady is here, he will probably do what he normally does.  :roll: Also Super Bowl Home Team Curse will eventually strike so...


Rams are the one team I can’t figure out. Are they good or bad? Goff got injured in the penultimate game but the Rams did enough to beat out the Cardinals and get in the playoffs. When they lost to the Jets I lost all hope here. They will probably get crushed in Seattle


Bears do not belong. They back doored into the playoffs. I don’t want to talk about them, they are probably the most boring team in this playoffs. They will get destroyed by the Saints.


Onto the AFC, and the Chiefs are still the team to beat. You will have to play the perfect game in order to outsmart them. A lot of their wins lately were close and there were some that the Chiefs should’ve lost but didn’t. Mahomes is picking up where he left off and a victory would cement possible dynasty status for Kansas City. Aka New England 2.0 :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:


However I think the biggest threat to them is TSM’s Bills. If I wasn’t bias toward my Packers I would pick the Bills to win it all. No team is hotter, Allen is on fire, and picking up Diggs gave them a major boost. I really want to see the Bills do well for their fans.  If it wasn’t for a fluke Hail Mary, this team would come in on a ten game winning streak. You have been warned.


PP319’s Steelers started off 11-0 then lost 4 of 5 to end the year including crucial losses to the Bills and Browns and a really confusing loss to the Bengals. They need to return to their early season form if they want to win a seventh title.


Titans have been one of the most fun teams to watch. King Henry dominated the entire league by rushing over 2k yards and was over 500 yards over the next closest running back this year. After they had a Cinderella run to the AFC Championship last year this team is no joke. They are for real.


TRJ’s Ravens are also coming in hot. I would not want to face them right now. Lamar Jackson is playing like his MVP self from last season and the team is on a 5 game winning streak. A perfect opportunity awaits to get revenge on Tennessee from last year.


Guys, this is not a drill... THE BROWNS ARE IN THE PLAYOFFS :shock: . I’m so happy for the Dawg Pound after suffering from 18 years of some of the shittiest football I have ever seen including a winless year just three seasons ago. A new coach, and Baker Mayfield having his best season has put the Browns into contention, something I never thought I would say.


Then there are the Colts. Phillip Rivers is trying to go for one last chance to get a title and he will have to do it the hard way and go on the road the entire time. Jonathan Taylor has replicated his performance from Wisconsin and combined with a great defense has put the Colts on the right track.


Who didn’t make it? Dolphins got hosed by a screwed up format that allowed Washington in but not them. Cardinals collapsed big time including two losses to backups to end the year. 49ers suffered from so many injuries. Vikings and Texans regressed, and... We will have a Patriot free Playoffs!


Also Fuck the entire NFC East just because I feel like it.
