That win could have cost them the #1 draft pick, now held by the Jags.

Before the Texans last drive yesterday, I told my ladies they'll drive down the field and fumble inside the 5 like last time they played the Colts.

I laughed really hard when it happened. Miami should really like their 1st and 2nd round picks this year.

LOL, the Patriots are eliminated from the playoffs at 6-8, but the Eagles still have a prayer at 4-9-1.

At least they didn't miss the playoffs with an 11-5 record. That would really suck.

:lol: Indeed.

Look, at this point the main thing that I want out of this season is an NFC East winner with as few wins as possible. I was hoping for 4, now it seems like the new lowest possible is 6, which would still be pretty good.

I was amused by the article only due to the it's pretentious writing. You can always tell it's probably a NYT sports article when they throw things in like the fall of Constantinople and "... Ottoman conquerors were stunned to see fallow fields encroaching upon the Hagia Sophia."

You know, sophisticated Patriots fans are constantly comparing the team's fortunes to notable moments in history.

I hadn't seen that article. A lot of this was inevitable - unless the Patriots stumbled into an Andrew Luck-esque replacement for Brady like the Colts, there was always going to be a difficult post-Brady transition. And if there's been one consistent issue for the Belicheck-era Patriots, it's the baffling inability to draft and develop wide receivers. You might say that it's akin to the Liberum Veto issue that plagued the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

Oh, and Patriots are STILL out of the playoffs with a lousy draft pick.

Just want to thank Alvin Kamara for giving my fantasy team a solid head start in my championship game. 170+ yards and *six* touchdowns? Much appreciated.

A 6 win NFC East champ is still in the cards. Meanwhile some chaos brewing in the AFC with 5 teams at 10-5 (Titans at 10-4 getting reamed on the frozen tundra) vying for the last 4 slots going into the final week.

I think I got your point, and was politely disagreeing with it. People not caring about something that applies generally to the thread isn’t a reason to enforce silence of it. You can scroll past any quick posts that reference fantasy football.

I have one thread that I talk about football stuff in, this is that thread.

Edit to add: I’m not trying to be an a-hole about it, but when I’m looking to reference something generally football related (Kamara’s insane performance), this is the thread I go to. I would have come here posting about getting lineup advice though.

If you don't respect the threads then why bother with them? Why not just have one big thread? I come here for football discussion and fantasy discussion has in my opinion little bearing on real football.

Good news, Bears fans!


Spoiler:
In the eyes of some NFL executives, Mitchell Trubisky has played some of the best football of his career, and has made a case as to why Chicago will need to consider re-signing him — especially if the Bears now advance to the playoffs.

Washington releases Haskins. Sheesh, what a disaster that guy was.

Hoping Alex Smith can go on Sunday and lead them to the playoffs. Would be a cool end to his amazing comeback.
