    Baltimore about to choke against Marvin X's Bengals, sending Buffalo and their quotaback to the playoffs. Unbelievable!

    Too bad the Chargers did not make it to the playoffs. That Asian kicker lost the 1st two games for them.

    NE will have two weeks to get sort things out. With the addition of healthy Hogan and Burkhead, they will be a team of ours to support.

    Even though the Patriots have blackened up considerably compared to last year, thanks to a dark AFC field they're basically the AFC team to root for by default.

    The NFC looks a lot better, with the Eagles actually the darkest of the bunch and only improving from there. Minnesota is the clear most White-friendly team.

    &#&*%^!*@% Ravens choke and let Buffalo and the vile racist Taylor in, but at least the Seattle Darkhawks are out. Their sense of entitlement and expectation of receiving a playoff berth every year was getting way out of hand. This should cut those bastards, the disgusting team and their equally disgusting soulless ultra-liberal fans, down to size.

    Here's to a Vikings-Patriots Super Bowl, with the Vikings winning and the Patriots learning to put White guys on defense.

    Weenieworld "analysis" on Kizer and Lynch. No mention of Kizer going against the Steelers B Team or the ridiculous leash given to him by Hue Jackson. Instead they blame Jackson because Kizer was an inept and in over his head player (he was the player who said he was a combination of Tom Brady and Cam Newton). Don't worry though after Cleveland's 0-16 season in which Kizer was terrible he still remains a "toolsy prospect". Lynch on the other hand after 4 starts is just trash and needs be moved on from at the age of 24. It is beyond asinine and I would love to punch the rotoworld "experts" in their faces:

    DeShone Kizer completed 16-of-30 passes for 314 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Browns' Week 17 loss to Pittsburgh.

    So ends a coaching-sabotaged rookie year for Kizer, a second-round pick whom overmatched Hue Jackson asked to perform tasks Carson Palmer was executing in his mid-30s. A starter for less than two years at Notre Dame, Kizer predictably struggled in Cleveland’s complex, pass-first, isolation-route-heavy passing game, amassing a brutal 11:22 TD-to-INT ratio with near-weekly red-zone turnovers. Jackson benched Kizer repeatedly and further undermined him by trying to swing a backdoor trade for A.J. McCarron in late October. Kizer will enter 2018 as a still-toolsy prospect with shaken confidence. The Browns have two top-four draft picks and will almost certainly use one on a quarterback.


    Paxton Lynch completed 21-of-31 passes for 254 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Broncos' 27-24, Week 17 loss to the Chiefs.

    Lynch's stats were decent enough, but he struggled mightily against the Chiefs' B-Team. Lynch simply does not process information quickly, and was a beat or three slow on nearly every critical decision. That included a strip-sack fumble six in the second half where Lynch never felt the rush. Not feeling the rush was a common theme as Lynch took five sacks. Although he's only made four career starts — and therefore in theory remains projectable — it's hard to see how the Broncos seriously considering Lynch part of their future under center. The 2016 first-rounder turns 24 in February.

    watching Newton having a chimpout with his O line was hilarious. He throws Mccaffery into double coverage on the short crossing routes at least 5 times for losses or no gains, then leads Mccaf too far so he has to try and 1 hand it which he normally gets but doesn't make this catch, if he did he has a first down and more. Newton misses so many easy throws or ignores Mccaf even when he is wide open. It is bewildering why this dude is a qb he should be a tight end or bottle slinger on the sidelines, he tried to win this game all by his lonesome so he could be the hero. Judging by his facial expression at the end of the game he didn't care that he played terrible and that they lost..what a dick!

    A Patriots-Steelers championship game seems almost a certainty, with the Jags and Chiefs possible dark horses.

    Newton was terrible. You wonder if he blames everyone but himself.

    Ridiculous commentary on Lynch's performance. He did quite well considering his inactivity due to injury. Also the Chiefs "B team" is hardly any different from their "A team" as Sutton rotates players more than most D coordinators. Lynch's main problem is that he was compared directly to Mahomes who did have a very good game.

    Maybe it's a coaching thing, Reid is good with QB's, and Mahomes credits Alex Smith for helping him week after week. What, horseface Elway doesn't impart any of his years of playing experience on a player with much of the same skillset as he had? Lost in all of this was that Anthony Sherman was the tailback for the Chiefs from the 2nd quarter on. He looked better than 1/2 of the backs in the league despite playing at a bulked-up fullback weight.

    Just a few notes on a disappointing last week thanks mainly due to the Raven's horrible loss.

    One of the few chances I had a chance to watch an entire Carolina game and the offense was beyond flat. Even CM looked a bit off but Newton takes the cake with yet another one of his dreadful performances. I am still rooting for them the most but they will have to turn it up ten notches if they expect to beat the red hot Saints in New Orleans. With Kuechly on D, and I noticed Colin Jones getting about half the snaps, the D should at least keep it competitive. It would be great if CM upstages the Saints RB Kamara and probable rookie of the year in the Wild card game.

    Speaking of great LB's Sean Lee led a Dallas defense that just closed the barn door on the Eagles in a shut out. Switzer caught four balls and again I suspect they will not resign Beasley next year. Best case scenario is Switzer earns a starting spot and Beasley starts for another team as well.

    Denver's WR Jordan Taylor had a decent day catching 6 balls I think but who knows what the future holds with him. He got more involved late in the season with punt returns but he rarely saw the field on offense. Starting to remind me of Alex Erickson the way they are jerking him around.



    QB JG of the 49er's looks like the real thing but his departure might lead to Belichick waving goodbye to the Pats. In case you are wondering the Pats knew how good JG is but Brady said make him disappear and the owner obliged. My understanding is this did not sit well with the HC. If the Pats don't win it all this year don't be surprised if something breaks.
    Meanwhile the speedy rookie TE Kittle had a career day with a 4-100 stat line!

    DE/LB Ryan Kerrigan had two sacks to push his total to 13 that placed him tied for 4th in the NFL. A damn fine consistent player. Prior to this year his sack stats starting in 2014 were 13.5,9.5 and 11. Joey Bosa, in consideration for defensive POY had another sack giving him a whopping 12.5 on the year. He was the most important element in the turn around for the Chargers this season. Clay Matthews rebounded with 8.5 sacks

    As everyone knows the Ravens loss allowed the toxic Bills to get into the playoffs. And what a loss. I don't think Weddle is in his prime anymore but he is still pretty solid and Woodhead is the rare white RB.But here is the great irony. All of a sudden WR Campanaro was playing a bigger role in the offense and The Ravens were to me one of those mid level teams I could root for down the road with some exceptions. The team went brain dead and allowed a long TD but they still had some seconds left. Lo and behold Campanaro, who has been injury prone his entire career, fields the kick off and twists his ankle on some sideline thing so he couldn't make it back out on the final drive. Good grief. A sadly suitable ending for one of those annoying NFL weekends,
