    Couldn't agree more. They don't deserve to get in the playoffs and neither do the Cowboys. For the amount of talent the Cowboys have on paper with their young roster, especially on the offensive side Dak, Amari, and Zeke are top 5 at their position in terms of production in yards this season. Michael Gallup has great production for a #2 WR. Randall Cobb is still making plays as a veteran slot guy. The OL is elite. You have all the pieces except maybe a dominant TE to be an elite offence. Coaching is the problem. The D is decent already too with a great pair of young LBs in Jaylon Smith and Leighton Vander Each to build around. They should be a 10 win team at this point easily. I honestly rather see the Cowboys get in the playoffs and get molly whooped in Jerry World on national TV by the Seahawks or Vikings in the playoffs and be 1 and done. I think Jalen Ramsey will be in Amari Cooper's face all game talking trash and take him away for the most part. I can see the Rams beating Dallas while Jerruh has a meltdown next week. For the Eagles the roster is old and injury prone. They need to get younger and better athletes at WR,CB, and LB. Also need to beef up their pass rush and start developing some young safeties to take for McLeod and Jenkins. They need to blow up this injury prone team. Getting as high a draft pick as possible would be ideal in the big picture.

    Brady missed some plays too. Like Wentz it's possible for both things to be true at the same time. The qb isn't playing good enough and the support around them is not adequate enough. Brady has a worse QBR than Jameis Winston who leads the league in picks for crying out loud! Brady is not getting better with age. He needs more help than ever now to prop him up. He has a great defence but still needs a running game and pass catching threats around him to be successful. Basically an entire system to help him. Brady is a system qb. Right now the system around him is broken. That's why the Patriots have lost 3 of the last 5 games.

    Hey hey whatya say maybe an off year for the Patriots. Come on Buffalo get em for the division. There is your chance. Boy Brady is probably crying every night wishing the Patriots had kept Antonio Brown and Josh Gordon. How many times has he begged and whinghed to Kraft to get Gronkowski back for him you think? Love seeing the Patriots go down. Need some new teams at the top. The AFC has been stale for some time and Lamar Jackson is ushering in a new era. NFC has been amazing this year outside of the NFC LEAST $&!#ting the bed per usual. Let's see if the Seahawks can keep Pace with the 49ers @ReggieBush

    Yes to all of the above. Clowney is is the piece imo that takes this defence to the next level if he isn't right, I don't how much you can rely on Poona Ford and co to be the difference. I still don't think Seattle is the fortress they used to be at home anymore even if you think both Seattle losses were unfortunate games based on turnovers. I don't remember anything about a New York qb making out with an NYC club skank in the hot gossip news? Are you referring to Darnold?

    You should fear a healthy 49ers team and the Ravens who beat you guys in Seattle. Still think the Cowboys or even the Packers could give Seattle a run for their money. The NFC is pretty open in comparison to the AFC. The Ravens are above anybody in the NFL right now. The 49ers vs Ravens game is a Super Bowl preview imo. 2 best NFL teams right now. Another test vs the Vikings on Monday Night Football for the Seahawks as well. Both Seattle losses came on home field and the Bengals provided a scare as well. Clowneys and Jarran Reid's health are key.

    Not really. Mariota getting benched was a good call. The Titans are not a real sexy team on paper imo, I think the Browns would be more entertaining if they snuck in as the last wild card. Henry is a good back who plays his best when the weather turns cold. For some reason he is inconsistent in September and October. He is a Free agent after the season and it will be hard to keep him if he keeps up these strong performances. This is why it's way to early to give up on Wentz. You give a qb a running game, solid OL and some quality WRs and you have a re-energized qb. You get your confidence back and rediscover your dormant talent again. Can you imagine Mariota on the Bucs or Redskins for example? He would be an elite backup for sure though. He can still run but needs a good system around him and a defence. I think Bears fans might even take him or especially Cam Newton over Trubisky.

    Fair but his arm strength looks fine to me. His mechanics have always been average. Even in 2017 he was completing less than 65% of his passes IIRC. The key difference is the Eagles run game by commitee was so potent in 2017 and they spread the ball around on offence to lots of different pass catchers instead of just targeting the TEs over and over. Mike Groh the OC needs to be fired. They need to try to bring back Flip or get somebody from Kyle Shanahan's offence maybe Matt Lafleur's brother? Who knows maybe Jay Gruden would be willing to take an OC job if he doesn't get any head coach offers. How safe is Zac Taylor with the Bengals @Pears? Also, Joe Burrow from Bayou Bengal to Cincinnati Bengal rolls off the tongue.

    He has been worse this year then he was in 2016 as a rookie. Looked rattled back there without his two top Pro Bowl OL guys Lane Johnson and Brandon Brooks. Also without his top RB and top 3 WRs. Hard to win for any qb. Plus it was windy as hell. They need to get him some better weapons and a better medical staff to keep guys healthier.

    I got the Seahawks beating the Eagles despite playing an early morning game on the west coast. Saints over the Panthers. Browns over the Dolphins. Patriots beat the Cowboys even though Michael Bennett will be playing with an axe to grind. Have no idea on who covers though.

    Eagles were missing their top WR, RB, and OT and still lost by only a touchdown to the mighty vaunted Patriots. It seems the mystique is starting to fade a bit around this historic team carried by the defense and facing a weak schedule until that game vs Baltimore.

    Have the Patriots been exposed the last 2 weeks? Held under 20 points 2 weeks in a row.

    Benglas could sign Kapernick to sell some tickets. What other team will sign him? The timing of this workout he is putting on seems like a sham. A Saturday really? What team is going to sign him when the entire NFL could have worked him out for the past year once his lawsuit against the NFL owners was settled? Would be shocked if he actually got signed. I don't believe there is any serious interest at all. This is a pr stunt to prove he hasn't been blacklisted from opportunity to play in the league. He should go play in the XFL. Any team that interviews him will want him to promise he not be a distraction and do his social justice reform work on his own time, without using the NFL as the platform for protest. And he obviously can't kneel. The question is has he improved throwing the ball? He is still not that old,he will still have some of the mobility that made him dangerous with his long strides to eat up grass.

    All the primetime games were good and LSU/ALABAMA lived up to the hype. Weeks like these make all the time, money and energy spent on this sport worth it. Having money on the line makes every turnover, ever penalty, every miss, every call truly heart wrenching and stressful. I don't know how people who bet every week do it. Russel Wilson scared the crap out of me with the way the Seahawks were turning it over all night. I was glad I took them with the points till the end. Though I could have made $100 more bucks on my modest sports wager had I took them and every other team straight up. Might be the MVP's worst game of the year considering the circumstances. Seahawks d played amazing though. Clowney was a 1 man wrecking ball. Even though it helped that key veteran WR Emmanuel Sanders went out and #1 TE George Kittle didn't even play. I can't wait to watch these teams hopefully meet in the NFC Championship game in a rematch. I missed that Seahawks 49ers rivalry. It was the best in the league in the early Harbaugh/Kapernick years. So glad with Richard Sherman and Robert Saleh they brought the Seahawks style defence to the 49ers. Still think Patrick Willis and Navoro Bowman were on another level to Kwon Alexander and Fred Warner. Glad to have the rivalry back. Both teams are legit Super Bowl contenders.
