They think the Pats will beat the Bills. Well, that's one of them.

It's possible, but highly unlikely.

Fun Facts going into week 13.

GOOD: Two teams could clinch playoff spots this week.

The Vikings could win the NFC North and lock up the 4-seed with a win over the Jets AND a Lions loss to the Jaguars. This could happen.

The Eagles have a slim chance to secure the 7-seed with a win over the Titans. However, they need a three-game parlay to clinch, with losses by the 49ers, Commanders, and Seahawks. Not likely, but possible.

BAD: Two teams are facing elimination this week.

The Texans are out if they lose to the Browns. Even if they manage to win, they could still be eliminated. So, they dead.

The Bears are gone if they lose to the Packers AND the Seahawks beat the Rams. Vegas thinks this is likely.

UGLY: The Island of Misfit Teams.

In the very sad, up for grabs NFC South, it is still possible that this sorry division could end up with a FOUR-WAY TIE at 6-11. Which would be awesome.

They're way too inconsistent and badly coached for that.  Like usual, they'll make the playoffs and lose the first game while getting 12 penalties and 2 stupid Dak interceptions

the Cardinals ending vs LAC was comical.  24-16 lead, had the ball with about 2:!5 left, and I think two timeouts.  THREE AND OUT (after the 2 minute warning, obv a free timeout for each team).  So.  AZ punts, and commits the second dumbest penalty in football (coverage team guy runs out of bounds, then comes back in;  the first dumbest penalty being offsides).  anyways, that gave LAC an additional 10 yards, when they had no timeouts.  that one play didn't cost the game, just a dumb farking penalty that gave the precious field position.

they of course score the TD, then convert the 2pt, 25-24 LAC.  AZ had about 25-30 seconds left, four and out.  and, the last snap was with about 8 seconds left.  From the AZ 25 or so.  broken play.  K1 should have just thrown OOB for a new play, with 3-4 seconds left.  Nope.  He danced around, threw a Fail Mary that I think got picked. Did he really think he'd throw a miracle 75yd tuddy?

And, AZ took a timeout into the locker room.  absolutely shiatass finish.

"When Fields returns from an injury to his non-throwing shoulder, everything should be geared toward helping him develop his skills as a passer and being able to win from the pocket."

Apparently this beat writer didn't pay attention to the game on Sunday. There is no way in hell Fields, or any QB, is going to develop as a pocket passer in a pocket that collapses in under 2 seconds and with no receivers getting separation.

The best thing to do would be to sit Fields for the remainder of the season in the hopes that Poles pulls his head out of his ass and builds a competent team around him.

Chiefs need to get their red zone offense together. 6 trips to the red zone, 1 TD and some FGs. One TD negated due to a dumb penalty, one drive ending with a silly INT in the end zone, and the rest as FGs due to weird playcalling.

And why are the Chiefs still trying to use Skyy Moore as a returner? He's muffed so many of them, he's a liability. Thinking he could be another Dante Hall is ridiculous. He didn't do returns in college. Use him as a WR as he's actually good with that.

This week they announced they are taking him off of punt return duties.  Hopefully that will be good for the rest of the season.

He's a solid option in as WR, you're right on that.  Here's hoping he flourishes even more there.

This would be awesome.  Plus witha home game, the winner of the loser division would have a good chance of winning and causing much consternation and harumphing about divisions and records.

The Vikes bounce back against a "meh" Patriots team. I am happy to see we spent alot more time running short routes, having Kirk play out of the shotgun more often and also running out of the shotgun. It shows that this coaching staff is capable of making changes when their scheme didn't work the week before. NOW what we need is the ability to change that IN GAME when things are going poorly. The Jets will be another good-to-great pass defense in a row and we will need the ability to adjust to what they are doing.Proving you can do that will potentially make a difference in the playoffs.

Our pass rush is ass against teams with even a mediocre offensive line. It's a shame that all that money for Za'Darius and Hunter is going to waste. Hunter skillset is not being used correctly in this offense and Z is making all his sacks on backups. If this team fails in the playoffs, this will be a LARGE reason for it.

Oh and FOR THE LOVE OF GOD PLEASE FIND ME A KICKER THAT HITS PATs. I MEAN GOOD GOD.


Week 13:12/4 vs. Jets, 1 PM, CBS Win 10-2
Week 14: 12/11 at Lions, 1 PM, Fox Win 11-2 (If the Lions win this week I might flip this around. Divisional games are TOUGH)
Week 15: 12/18 vs. Colts, TBD, Win 12-2
Week 16: 12/24 vs. Giants (Saturday), 1 PM, Fox Win 13-2 (The Giants are a matchup issue for us IMO, it's still a home game though)
Week 17: 1/1 at Packers, 4:25, CBS Loss 13-3 (♪♪ BUT IT'S OVER NOOOOOOWWWWW, MUST HAVE BEEN GOOD, BUT THEY LOST IT SOMEHOW ♪♪) (Will switch this to a win if it is Jordan Love).
Week 18: 1/8 at Bears, TBD, TBD Loss 13-4 (We find ways to lose in Solider Field)

Vikes should win this week because the Jets QB situation is VERY fraudulent. Their backup beat up on the Bears defense which is nothing but a bunch of dudes who are living, breathing 63 overalls in Madden. Whoever is out there WILL turn the ball over to us and that will be the difference.

The Steelers gained some ground, from 28 to 26. They won last night, but I thought Monday night games aren't considered until the following week?

Article is right that this season is about developing Kenny Pickett, but I hope we make the playoffs if only to make the writer eat his words.
Anything can happen. ;)
 
2022-11-29 10:29:46 AM  
The Rams go from SB Champs to #30 in the rankings.

Even if they did have a healthy Stafford, Kupp, Donald and Robinson, I can't see them climbing higher than #20.

An astounding drop, and no 1st round draft picks to help for a while.

Gonna have to feast off that championship for a LONG time.

They are supposedly counted in the week they happen in (this case, Week 12) with the Thursday and Sunday games before it.  However, we all know the article was written before MNF, so in practice...

So the playoff picture is the # 3 team will lose their division to the #5 team, then beat the #1 team to get to the Superb Owl, where they will face and defeat both the #2 and #4 teams.

4. Dallas Cowboys (8-3)

Week 12 ranking: 5a.espncdn.com
Realistic expectation:Getting to the Super Bowl.

Well, it is ESPN. If they can't fellate the Patriots, then they'll fellate the old standby. Good team? Yes. Superbowl? I don't think it's realistic. The NFC is mid-to-awful so they'll have as good a chance of the SB as the farking Bucs.

Same for the 49ers, but it's more likely in my opinion. JimmyG is not game-changer good. Their offense is mid even with the amazing playmakers they have; that's scheme and QB. An amazing defense and good special teams though. Offense sells tickets, defense wins games and championships (which in turn sells tickets).

How the fark are the Packers above the Lions? Oh, wait... ESPN.

At least they're playing hard every game, they simply don't have enough talent to win games.

Oh wait a minute, I see the Bengals and 49ers are also going to win their conferences, so that's five teams in the Owl this year.  Good work there ESPN, but surely there's room for Tom Brady somehow?

Welcome to the Jake week 13!

Almost screwed this up, but checked my stats vs ESPN and found yet another new QB for the year - Bryce Perkins. Someone I've never even heard of before, and of course a new QB that is unknown makes their NFL debut at #2 on the Jake rankings. Bonus, Bryce's birthday is in December so theoretically in about 2 years he could be eligible for a 'perfect Jake'.

As to the rest of the list, we have A.A. Ron and Matt Ryan again in the top 4. I think this is around the 4th or 5th time for each of them. Rodgers is having a terrible season. 

Kyle Allen takes home the gold though for the useless Texans, after a stunning QBR of 4.2

I think it's more layered than that.

I feel like the Eagles and 49ers are the teams best quipped to win in the playoffs at this point. Then the next tier down are the Cowboys because of their defense and the Vikes because of their offense.

Everyone else have little to no chance to get to actually make a run and win road games against those teams.

Same for the 49ers, but it's more likely in my opinion. JimmyG is not game-changer good. Their offense is mid even with the amazing playmakers they have; that's scheme and QB. An amazing defense and good special teams though.

Agreed. They have gotten to NFC Championship games and a SB with LESS then what they have now and Jimmy G still at the helm and people seem to forget that. No reason to no expect it this year too.

The Bears should put all their efforts toward building for 2023. When Fields returns from an injury to his non-throwing shoulder, everything should be geared toward helping him develop his skills as a passer and being able to win from the pocket.

I mean, sure, try to improve the passing, but, don't cut off his legs.  I doubt they want to do that though, but, they shouldn't uber concentrate on his "pocket passing"... TBH, it felt like they could have easily won 3 or 4 games here recently, but, they honestly didn't "want" to... they'd have been at best .500, which might have put them in the hunt for the 7th seed, but, what does that get them?  Better to get the 2 or 3 pick, and load up on talent around Fields this offseason.

That, and they'll still be in the game but the refs will call a bogus holding call on their offense after they get into field goal range to win or tie.. after not calling holding on the opposing offense all game even though Micah parsons was being held every play.

Or one of our receivers will have a phenomenal catch.. they'll rule it a catch.. and after review, even though this catch has been ruled a catch multiple times in this season, they'll overturn it.

After their win over the Vikings, one of the 1-minute "sports' experts give an opinion" pieces that runs at the top of each hour on sports radio said "The Cowboys have a clear path to the Super Bowl, they're firing on all cylinders, and there's no one else that's a front-runner in the NFC."

And I'm thinking, "Uh, dude, there's literally SOMEONE IN THEIR OWN DIVISION that is currently among the top-3 teams in the NFL".  But that would require acknowledgment of reality, which we all know sports punt-dits refuse to do.
 
2022-11-29 11:30:23 AM  
The Eagles are in good position, but they seriously have to do something about those special teams. The defense is what it is - good against the pass, bad-to-decent against the run, but will get better as players get healthier and come back. The special teams, however, live up to their name; kick coverage is bad to downright awful (to the point that opposing players aren't afraid to take the ball out of the endzone, even from 5+ yards deep), punts are an adventure, and returns of any type are pretty much nonexistent. (Thankfully Jake Elliot is one of the best kickers in the league, else the whole unit would be a complete wasteland.)

If they lose out of the #1 seed, or even make it but fumble badly in the playoffs, it will most likely be the fault of the special teams imploding.

Bills are probably trending up. They just won 2 games in basically 3 days, with a grand total of 2 practice days. They are also getting healthier at the right time. Lots of defense will be coming back this month, including (maybe) Micah Hyde.

I think that they are a bit high at #3 on ESPN, I'd probably put them at #5. I don't know that I'd put the Dolphins ahead of them, maybe just behind them.

My top 5 right now:
- Chefs
- Eagles
- Cowboys
- Vikings
- Bills

Jack Sabbath: Even if they did have a healthy Stafford, Kupp, Donald and Robinson, I can't see them climbing higher than #20.


right before Kupp got injured, I heard a national guy say, "if you look at the numbers, Kupp is 60% of their offense.  And if you watch game tape, he's more like 80, between teams scheming for him, double teams, pressure, and then him blocking.  If Kupp gets hurt, the Rams are in big trouble."  then it happened.

Jack Sabbath: Gonna have to feast off that championship for a LONG time.


there was long ago a Fark Football Thread, huge Jets fan. whose nuclear bomb (or so he thought) to every "your Jets suck, bro!" argument was a picture of the one Jets ring.

OK, scoreboard, bro.  The Cards have zero.  Some teams have never even been to the SB.  Quit celebrating rings won before you were alive.

I have this argument with a corowrker, huge Yankee fan. To his credit, born in the Bronx, moved to AZ as a child.  He's about 50.  whenever he starts in with "27 rings, world champs!", i'm like, "brok, half were before the game was integrated, and your grandma probably banged Babe Ruth. Don't claim rings not won in your lifetime.  it's more like.....19."

and then he says, "that's still 18 or whatever more than your Diamondbacks!"

The last weeks of the season will definitely be interesting for Washington.

Two weeks against the Giants (with a bye in between 'em), 49ers, Browns, and then Dallas.  Dallas may not play their starters as they might have clinched what they can clinch (unless they'd play spoiler perhaps)....so that may be a "W" for the Commies...

Somehow, someway, the Commies have won close games...just like the Giants did earlier in the season.  I'd love to see the Commies go to the playoffs and win a game just for Heinicke's sake.

If we had a better o-line and somehow could give Heinicke some more physical traits (a bit taller and/or better arm), we could actually be a force to be reckoned with...

smd31: The last weeks of the season will definitely be interesting for Washington.

Two weeks against the Giants (with a bye in between 'em), 49ers, Browns, and then Dallas.  Dallas may not play their starters as they might have clinched what they can clinch (unless they'd play spoiler perhaps)....so that may be a "W" for the Commies...

Somehow, someway, the Commies have won close games...just like the Giants did earlier in the season.  I'd love to see the Commies go to the playoffs and win a game just for Heinicke's sake.

If we had a better o-line and somehow could give Heinicke some more physical traits (a bit taller and/or better arm), we could actually be a force to be reckoned with...

///ah that'd be awesomeness


Maybe. If Philly loses one and then also loses to the Cows on Christmas Eve then the Cows will play out to hold off Philly and Minnesota for the number 1 seed. If Philly wins out or even if they win everything except the Cows game, then I think it won't matter.

Interestingly enough I think the Giants are in danger of of missing the playoffs entirely. Their schedule for the end of the season is hell. I think they'll be out and Seattle will be in.

NFC Prediction:
1. Iggles
2. Vikes
3. 49ers
4. Failcons (only because they have the easiest remaining schedule, but it could be Bucs or Panthers too)
5. Cows
6. Commies
7 Sea-chickens

AFC Prediction:
1. Chefs
2. Bills
3. Tits
4. Rat-brids
5. LOLPhins
6. Bengals
7. Jests

Oh I know it.  I get to tease my Bills-loving buddies about it every football season.

Yeah, I think you are right about the Giants.  I looked at their remaining games and they definitely have it the hardest.  2 games against Washington (in between byes for Washington), 2 games against the Eagles, AND a game against the Vikings?! 

Daaang...only "easy" game left is the one against the Colts.

Aezetyr: cfreak: Aezetyr: portnoyd: Ok, I'll bite - who is the team that's way too high? Tampa? New England? I honestly don't know.

I'd honestly go like this:

1) Iggles
2) Chefs
3) Phins
4) Mid-assota (might be a little high)
5) Beefalo
6) Cows

Why would you say the Cows are worse than Minnesota? You have an actual head-to-head matchup where the Cows destroyed the Vikes on their home turf.

/ biggest problem the Cows have is they beat themselves

That's what I mean. The Vikes have won games by committing fewer mistakes and staying disciplined. They're a better coached team. True they lost in the head-to-head, and that does count for something.


Fair. I think it would be a bigger argument if the Cows had won by one score. Vikes have had a lot of things go their way in games they've won too. And like the rest of the NFC East they have a fairly weak schedule by benefit of the division being horrible.

Cows have been somewhat better this season than they were last year in the "beating themselves" department. I give them a bit of a pass against the Bucs as it was the first game and the starters really hadn't played at all. Dak also go hurt during the game and they didn't have Gallup.  Eagles game is a bit of a pass too ... Rush playing as back-up QB, no Gallup again. Still that game was a lot closer than it looked in the end.

Cows played a bit rough against the Gnats in the first half Thursday but then turned it on in the second half. It wasn't pretty, but it was a short week.

The bad loss is against GB who they should have destroyed.
