I don't categorize a team's entire season by the performance of one player in one game.
That would be "misleading."

The 2018 Patriots had the #4 offense and the #7 defense.
The 2018 Rams had the #2 offense and the #20 defense.

I do not like statements like these.  They are very misleading.

You actually have to watch the games and how they played out.

The best example of how this is misleading is the 2006 Patriots.

You could say, "Man, Brady was so awesome that year.  He took that team to the AFC title game with a shitty receiving corps.  He only had Gaffney and Caldwell (RIP)."

However, the truth of the matter is, the Patriots reached that AFC title game IN SPITE OF BRADY.  He played horrible in the Divisional playoff game against SD, but the Chargers were determined to lose that game, and did everything they could to make sure they did.

That Rams defense was all world as well.  With Suh and Donald wreaking havoc up front and Joyner, Peters, and Talib patroling the secondary, they could've stopped about anyone.

I would say that with a lesser head coach, NE doesn't hold the #2 offense in the league to 3 points in the Super Bowl.

The 13 points Brady put up on offense was an extremely humble performance.

More like it's proof that Tom Brady really carried that franchise in his later years.  Without him, they would've never won the last three Super Bowls that they did.

It's an incredible accomplishment, especially when you consider the one year they missed the playoffs they were 11-5. However, it still doesn't mean this year's team isn't embarrassing and Belichick just didn't prepare to contend this year. Not just Brady leaving but not having enough talent throughout the roster.

Burrow tore his ACL and MCL. It's honestly surprising he didn't get hurt before this week because the Bengals O-Line is an abomination. You really are a worthless franchise if you draft Joe Burrow with the #1 pick and the following season you still pick in the Top 3.

Like how the NBA changed the lottery odds to punish teams that tank, the NFL shouldn't allow any team to draft in the Top 5 for more than 2 years straight.

Two things here:

1.  Drafting top 3 may be a huge huge deal for the Bengals.   Because this draft is top heavy with OT's, the Bengals can draft a real stud at that position because the two teams above them will most likely need a QB.   Or they can trade down, pick up a slew of picks and still get a damned good OT. 

2.  I agree with you on the need for an NBA style lottery.  Tanking is a shame in any sport.

Sorry, still don't see how that makes you right about anything.

Pat Mahomes did us a huge favor with that comeback victory against Oakland.

Three teams are now tied for the last wildcard spot at 6-4

They are

BAL
MIA
LV

Miami plays LV in Week 16. so it's likely that that will be a must win game for Miami to have a realistic chance.




Man, that Broncos loss really hurt us. Forces us to win against a good team now.
