Football

most tv sucks these days, but there are some shining examples of good writing, acting, camera work, etc... we call those Deadwood and Arrested Development. Family Guy sucks ass, though...

It is funny how local stations cover the NFL compared to the national media. The local news here made it sound like the Raiders made a miraculous comeback against the Jets. Everyone else is saying that the Jets made one of the worst defensive play calls in recent memory. Since the Jets just fired their defensive coordinator, it is probably easy to see which message is correct.

Holy Buffalo!!

Just watched them lay the smack down on the Steelers.
The Bills are gonna be Division Champs for the first time in 25 years!! The Patriots no longer have a two decade stranglehold on the AFC North.

Nice.

Watching Thursday Night Football and I am again amused when reminded that the Raiders moved to Las Vegas in their brand new multi-billion dollar stadium. And its seats are all empty.

The teams with longest active Playoff Droughts.

Franchise # of seasons
Cleveland Browns 17
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 12
New York Jets 9
Arizona Cardinals 4
Cincinnati Bengals 4
Denver Broncos 4
Washington Redskins 4
Detroit Lions 3
Miami Dolphins 3
New York Giants 3
Las Vegas Raiders 3

Tampa is off the list after 12 seasons. Cleveland is one beatdown of the Jets away from getting off the list after 17 seasons. Cardinals have a chance, if the Bears help them with a loss or two. Washington is off if they can hold on to their division. That’ll leave

Jets 10
Bengals 5
Broncos 5
Lions, Dolphins, Giants, Raiders with 4.

Of course, it helped that there are two extra playoff berths this year.

As I type this, the Browns are losing 3-13 to the Jets early in the 3rd quarter.

If you want to take that a step further, for teams last playoff win:
Bengals - 1990
Lions - 1991
Bills - 1995
Browns - 1994
Dolphins - 2000
Raiders - 2002
Tampa - 2002
Washington - 2005
Jets - 2010
Bears - 2010

Of the eight remaining teams, which would be the best “story” if they win the Super Bowl?

The Ravens. Meh. Lamar Jackson is a fun QB to watch, but other than that...

The Rams. After getting trounced a couple years back, they correct that.

The Chiefs. They repeat on their way to being the next dynasty team.

The Buccaneers. Old Man Brady proves he’s got one last victory in him and it was never Bellichek.

The Packers. After Green Bay drafted his replacement last year, a salty Aaron Rodgers wins the game, then tells them to fuck off and goes and plays for another team next year.

The Bills. After coming so close four years in a row, they finally get it done twenty years later.

The Saints. Drew Brees caps off his career with one last win and retires.

The Browns. After a 0-16 season just a few short years ago, the joke of the NFL stuns everybody.

Weird fact. The average age of the QBs left in the AFC is 24.9 and is the youngest ever in the Divisional Round playoffs. The average age of the QBs left in the NFC is 37.2, which is the oldest ever in this round.

Tom Brady and Drew Brees are #1 and #2 on the list of oldest players still currently playing. Kicker Adam Vinatieri was 1st before he retired.
The 3rd and 4th are Long Snappers, so their bodies aren’t decimated from the hardships of the game. Philip Rivers is 5th on the list.

I meant only the QBs for the 8 teams playing this weekend. In the NFC, Brady is 43, Brees is 42, Rodgers is 37, and Goff is 26. In the AFC, Allen and Jackson are 24, Mayfield and Mahomes are 25.

It looked like he was going to fall about 7 yards after he caught it, but regained his balance. I was literally pacing back and forth watching the game until that Pick 6. Finally could relax a little after that.

Yeah that was fantastic. Very happy for Buffalo - the city at the top of my list of cities that I want to see win a championship in ANYTHING before I die at this point. I think them & San Diego are the only long term pro sports cities that have never won anything during my time on earth.
