    You know what's really going to suck???

    As I clearly noted, it's not about losing to a bad team it's about the "when" the losing occurred. The Steelers were rolling and lost to bottom barrel teams, with the Oakland game being a pretty significant "must win". That's just not something the Steelers have done in their current run of success-they always get those types of games. On top of that barely eeking out a week 17 win against a depleted bungler team in a true "win or we're out" showed cracks not shown before.

    Matt Stafford constantly throws for eleventy billion yards and has nothing to show for it. To be very honest if I were a steeler fan that'd be a concerning stat line for me. I'm not going to ever rule out the Squeelers, but even an unbiased fan can see this is the first time in a decade there were just cracks in the armor. Very head scratching losses in "make or break" part of the season. The two guys leaving actually isn't something I'm going to overreact to, but it's not like those guys were bums either.

    PFF Season Summary

    For sure. Garrett, Joe S, Avery and Ogunjobi really shined this season but the others were really hit or miss. With the amount of DL/OLB talent available this draft that should absolutely be our primary focus.

    ***Official Super Bowl LIII Game Thread***

    I mean yes, every legendary coach had some legendary players there's no arguing that. However, Bill's career has been made with picking up the scraps of other teams and low draft picks and making elite defense and great skill players. There's a reason all the great WR's for the Patriots by in large are no-name guys who become elite. There's a reason the defense is rated in the top half of the league despite most of the guys out there being later round talent or the rejects from other teams (Danny Shelton anyone). No one can claim they built a dynasty the way Bill has in managing a roster. There's a reason a guy like Manning, Brees, Rodgers, etc all only have 1-2 rings and Brady now has six. I wouldn't necessarily put Tom's skil set above any of those guys (at most, a 1A, 1B conversation). The difference is Bill Belichek.

    Worst Halftime EVER

    To be totally honest, my educated guess is they wanted a recognizable but non-offensive band based on all the controversy of the past two years. The exact same reason Justin Timberlake was last year's performer. One can groan about the mediocrity of it but nothing was "offensive". Definitely agree there.

    ***Official Super Bowl LIII Game Thread***

    Last night just goes to show that Bill B. is the best coach in NFL history. I know people like Gipper might have a stroke to that statement (love ya buddy) but seriously, that game was was a master stroke. Make no mistake about it, the reason they won was on his shoulders. He turned the whole "NFL is changing to young offense" idea and flipped it upside down and peed on the ashes. Honestly, I "hate" the Pats as much as anyone else but I was in awe of how out coached the Rams were. Checkers v. Chess match without a doubt.

    Worst Halftime EVER

    Am I the only one who thought the halftime show was fine? Obviously Levine losing his clothes to show the dad bod was...awkward but I appreciated him actually singing and his pop hits are fine. That's not one of those performances I'm going to tell my grandkids about, sure but it was fine. People acting like this was the worst thing of all time, I just don't see that

    Imagine Saquon at 1 and Mayfield at 4

    Yeah, tough to prove but 4 QB's went in the top 10. There's literally no way to confirm a team like the cardinals didn't love mayfield and would have sniped him before our pick. Sure it's a fun thought, but given the draft results you took Mayfield 100 out of 100 times with that pick. Also, did you watch Chubb? I don't get how people aren't recognizing how baller that dude was essentially not playing the first 4 ish games. Hell, a full 16 weeks and he woulda been considered for ROY.
  9. Honestly a part of me is glad he didn't win. You know hes gonna come for blood because of the snub.

    Baker Mayfield Thread

    Thanks you dumb mofos for not clicking Baker's name enough on the Pepsi link to let him win ROY. Great fuckin job. 😄 Seriously of course, that award is all fan based and those clowns in NY can have it. Baker should win the one the matters.

    This Week in the Super Bowl

    I have to admit, this was the year my opinion changed on the Patriots. I mean obviously I would have preferred some "new blood" but this Patriots team had ALL the makings of finally declining. I was listening to a great radio session from the guy who literally wrote that new book about Bill B, and he went into really good detail about this. There was a TON of smoke about Bill and Brady being so at odds both were thinking about moving on as late as into training camp. And yet, somehow they are in this position again to win the whole damn thing. It's incredibly impressive and almost in a macabre way has me rooting for them.

    Inside the Browns front office, ESPN

    You know, I really enjoyed reading this article and none of it was "shocking". The only thing I kinda reflected on about Haslam was the "why" on what he did before this year. I consider myself a football dude, I'm sure most if not all of you do as well. What's very clear to me is ol' Jimmy felt the same way and made decisions thinking he was a football guy. In reflection, it's actually pretty hard for me to think I wouldn't have done that as well, given his position. I can't sit there and say I wouldn't have made some decisions as the "guy" that clashed with others. I know it's easy to note that's not what owners SHOULD do, but I can understand why he did. What's apparent though is that he realizes that wasn't the way to go. I'm sure he saw the dollar bills from having a team worth a shit (i.e. the december sell out game) and understood letting go caused that. With that being said, I can understand his early mistakes-can't say I wouldn't have made some of those myself.

    Honestly, this is why all playoff games in major sports should be able to have a protest process. As others have sid it's really hard to not wonder if that's rigged.

    How on earth is that call missed? The nfl seriously needs to review this garbage.

    Jarvis Landry headed to pro bowl

    Look, I'll cut you a bit of slack here and say some of the deeper dive stats aren't friendly to Landry, I can admit that. However, to watch the guy play and outright claim he "sucks" is just being a hater though. The guy is a fine football player that we likely overpaid a bit to come here. But honestly, that's something the Browns as organization had to do to bring in a quality free agent. The glut of his deal may not work out 3 years from now, but it's just fine now.
