Titans fire their coach as well.

Paging Steve Ross... Paging Steve Ross... Where are you Mr. Ross? A decision on how to proceed would be nice...

Questionable move by the Titans considering the mess the owner made with that team.

It's only one game obviously and it's at least another year before he's draft eligible, but I wonder if this game opens some eyes about Winston so far as the NFL. His first game against a good team, and he really looks bad. Manziel could out up big games against SEC teams. Hell, even Tannehill did better against SEC teams.

Edit: well so much for that theory.

NFL looking at 14 playoff teams going forward?

 

http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/story/_/id/10260730/roger-goodell-noncommittal-future-cold-weather-super-bowls

 

Goodell said league owners are considering adding two additional wild-card teams to the playoff mix. "That is under serious consideration." he said. "One of the greatest things about the NFL, other than it's unscripted, is that every team starts the season with hope. On the final week of the regular season, 13 out of 16 division games had playoff implications. Now, can we make it better by trying to hone in with additional playoff teams? Can we make those [division] races even more competitive? That's compelling. It's something that the competition committee looked at last year and thinks there are some real benefits from a competitive standpoint." Goodell continued; "They're going to study some aspects of it. When would those games occur? How would the seeding be set? Would one team get a bye in each conference.. and then you'd have six games on the weekend. So would you have three on Saturday, and three on Sunday? Or do you get one on Friday and two on Saturday and two on Sunday and one on Monday? I think those are the kinds of things we want to evaluate."
 

..pretty wordy of an answer from RD, if it wasn't something they weren't going to do. Me thinks you may see this as early as next season. :ninja:

On one hand, you wonder if the NFL overdoes it sometimes.

 

On the other, it would be interesting to have the #1 seed be the only team that enjoys a bye week.  That REALLY gives finishing with the conference's best record a hell of a lot of value.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Here's a look at the top 10(ish) teams with regards to cap room for the offseason. 

 

This is a little old...it doesn't take Jay Cutler's extension into account...but other than that it's a solid look at who has what to spend what and what they need.

I think playing the extra week will be a HUGE advantage....to the #2 seed.....how many times do we see these top teams lock up their spots and take their foot off the gas and get SMOKED when they have to try to ramp it up again??? NEVER works.....you make these talented teams that make the 2 spot play through and you're gonna see a LOT more two seeds go deep into the playoffs.....

The NFL, like the NHL, lives to fix sh!t that 'aint broke. The NFL has the best playoff system in sports, but of course, that isn't good enough for Ginger Moneybags McJerkoff. The NFL is going to eventually reach the point where they finally suffocate people if they keep fvcking with sh!t. If that dumb fvck ever gives a franchise to London, I may just lose my sh!t. Sorry for the rant, but I can't stand Goodell. I hate him more than Bettman.

There are a few faults. I don`t love the idea of an 8-7-1 team hosting playoff games against a 12-4 team, while a 10-6 team misses the playoffs. That sucks all around. Too many examples of divisions just being sh!tty. You don`t get 8-7-1 teams or 9-7 division winners because the division is so competitive. When you have a great division, you have a 13-3 team, a 12-4 team, a 10-6 team, and a 7-9 team.

If they want to think of a way to have the teams strictly with the best records host playoff games, that's fine- a 7-9 team should never host a 10-6 team in a playoff game, ever. But I'm 120% against adding more teams to the playoffs. fvck. That. sh!t. The system to me is perfect with regard to the number of playoff teams. Don't water down what the playoffs mean by adding more teams. But alas- under the leadership of Captain Ginger VanDipsh!t- by 2020, we'll have 20 of 32 teams making the playoffs, franchises in London and Berlin, defensive backs will have to play with one hand tied behind their backs, and a sack will consist of ripping the flag off of the QB's waist.

If a 10-6 team goes to GB ( San Fran) San fran needs to win the division then. So what the saints went to Philly win your fking division then. Stop playing good at home and being medicore on the road win your division then. Philly won there's fair and square against Dallas. Saints couldn't beat st Louis and Carolina. That isn't Phillies issue its the saints.

I respect that, especially coming from a Dolphins fan who has not seen many playoff games in the last decade. No one in the AFC deserved that last wild card spot. No need to add any more teams.

And the team that got it, San Diego, is one win away from shocking the world and booking a flight to New England for the AFC Championship game. Not gonna lie- that sh!t hurts.
