    Yep.

    And yes, I know the Seahawks made the playoffs with a losing record in 2010 and went on to beat the 11-5 Saints in the wild card game... it was dumb then and it's dumb now.

    Even though my team could be the one doing this, I agree. Yeah, the NFC East team might upset someone (like recent Steelers loss), but can they really go more than a game or 2? Doubtful

    Definitely dumb, just wanted to point out that it was the Saints yet again falling flat.

    I don't know how the Packers beat anyone with their porous defense. Rodgers has to keep pulling miracles out of his bag.

    Your second sentence answers the first. Rodgers leads in most TD passes and highest QB rating, and he's basically top-5 in all other stats.

    Rodgers is simply a badass, and from what little I know a good guy as well. Definite future HOF'er, no question.

    OK, time to see how it went. The unpredictability of the season with COVID cost me a chance at a couple more success stories, but it also probably assisted somewhere along the line as well.

    AFC East: should have said in Bills we Trust. Pats never found it this year. X
    AFC West: a win here. Easiest pick to make with the Chiefs.
    AFC North: my long shot almost came in. Browns nab a WC, bit Steelers prevailed. X
    AFC South: glad I went against my heart, Titans grab the division by mere inches.

    NFC East: total crap shoot. The nameless team befittingly won by losing. X
    NFC West: Niners were out early with injuries. Russ cooked. Seattle take the West. X
    NFC North: what was I thinking? Best team in football at the moment are the Pack. X
    NFC South: Tom could not pull this one out for me. I still think the Bucs are better than the Saints. X

    2 out of 8. This is why I do not gamble. ;)

    Best team in the league right now are the Packers. The Bucs have heated up late in the season, so they could be the spoilers in the NFC Playoffs.

    In the AFC, the Chiefs have looked rather bland in the last part of the season. They did what needed to get done, but there are a couple of other teams playing better football. Specifically, the Bills.

    Super Bowl outlook: Bucs over the Bills. Tommy needs another ring.

    NFC East is ugly, but WFT emerges. Gotta respect Rivera for what he's endured fighting cancer, the name change, the Snyder drama, etc. They won't get past Brady-Bucs, but they showed some spunk.

    All that matters is the team formerly known as THE REDSKINS are going to the playoffs while the cowgirls and chickens stay home. Yeah, probably only 1 game, but 1 more game than them. And who knows...

    All the Giants fans are more mad at the Eagles for losing (throwing?) the last game than they are at their own team for not winning more games. They are also mad that at 6-10 they didn't make the playoffs o_O

    Right. It's a Sergio or DeShambles whining. Don't like your lie? Don't hit it there. Giants.....win a few more games and you're in. :rolleyes:

    Reality is that none of the NFC East teams deserve a playoff spot, one got a spot by default. If you do not like how the season turned out, win more f#@&!#g games next year. What would the G-men have done if in the same position as the Eagles and losing the meaningless game (for them) jumped them up three draft positions while protecting your future franchise QB?

    Who should be in the playoffs:

    upload_2021-1-4_13-36-32. upload_2021-1-4_13-37-11.

    Which is funny since the Vikings still get in with a losing record, but they are the 8th best team in the conference ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Will be interesting to see just how much he micro-manages a new GM. Broncos used to be a team to contend with. Walked over the Chiefs, season after season. Now, they are a doormat. Elway probably shouldn't get all the blame, but the buck stops at the top. For the good of football, would love to see a resurgence of the "Orange Crush". For the spite of PaPaD and a life long hatred of the Broncos... let 'em struggle!!! :>)

    You're welcome to pull for the:

    [​IMG]

    team with no name, since they have the same record as your "not going to the playoffs" team with no quarterback. Well, you can pull for them for 1 game, anyway...

    Patriots are where they belong with that miserable of a record, they did not deserve a playoff spot. Neither does the WFT belong in the playoffs with that record, but are getting in by default. That will help the Pats on draft day.:D

    I'm a REDSKINS fan AND an NC State fan/alum. I've learned to take any/all wins and be happy
