  1. Assessing the Alliance (AAF)

    It seems that it has a good portion of backing from the NFL. They played it on NFL network, Kurt Warner (who works for NFL network) was the analyst for a game, have their highlights on their website, and have their schedule on their bottom line.

    And from what I have read it seems like they both have a nice nasty streak to them. The Vikings offensive line needs a nice heaping of nastiness

    I will admit, Tuckers number was lower than I expected but this does shed little bit more light on it. (I don't think the rules need to change for regular season) Obviously the playoffs is a much smaller sample size, but in most cases if you're in the playoffs, chances are you have a at competent offense with at least competent QB play which is going to lead to more game winning drives on the first possession, and not QB's like Bortles, Dalton, Tannehill etc. 2019 NE, 2017 NE, 2016 AZ, 2015 SEA, 2012 DEN were all ended on the first possession after the team that won the toss got the ball. The only team that didn't have a pro bowl quality QB in that group was the Broncos but we all know there was some other divine intervention with that QB

    100 percent agree. They had ample opportunities to stop them. I'm not making an excuse one way or another. The point is though, the two teams played an equal game at the end of 60 minutes. Doesn't matter if you struggled in the first half or if you blew a lead, at the end of the game it's been a draw. On the scoreboard, the teams have been equal. And it's not just this game. I don't like the impact a coin flip has. I'd have to go research it, but I bet that the majority of teams that start overtime with the ball win. I hated it in the 09 Championship, I hated it in the Falcons-Patriots super bowl. As a fan of the game I don't like when a teams best player (and in this game and the Falcons super bowl, the MVP) doesn't get a chance in overtime. It's as simple as that.

    We act like an extra 5 minutes is going to break these players. I don't agree with this point at all. Yeah he didn't play well in the first half but lead an offense to score 24 points on a Bill Belichick defense in the 4th quarter. To say he doesn't deserve a shot because he struggled in the first half doesn't do justice to what he did in the second half. Yeah their defense couldn't hold up and had their chances, but I don't think the Patriots would have either. I don't like legacies being decided by the flip of a coin.

    Play another quarter. Play a 10 minute quarter. The chances of that happening are rare and there have been double OT games in playoff history before.

    Depending on what they do with Barr, Richardson, and how they address the O-line before the draft, I'd love to see Devin White fall to 18

    My problem is that the MVP of the league doesn't get a chance to see the field. Imagine Lebron not being on the court because of the format in a finals game. I don't think you need to do college OT rules, but why not play another quarter. You don't need it in the regular season, but in the conference championship why not? They get 2 weeks before the super bowl.

    Wow I started this whole thing and totally forgot today. I've been watching my brothers kids. So I'll take the chiefs for 12
  10. What might the KSO look like?

    I think it will look similar to the Shurmur offense.

    I just saw this on twitter the other day and it brought me so much joy
  12. Did you all read Coller's article about the conference today? I usually like most of his writing but man he was sour today. And I love it when media members get offended at a coach calling them out on false information. These guys sit here and criticize the coaches every move every game but can't take a little heat when it comes back on them.
  13. 2019 Playoff Pick em

    Chiefs - 4 Saints - 8 Rams - 6 Chargers - 2
  14. Are we at the end of the Rhodes...?

    Understandable, but many have already pointed out that it is doable
  15. Are we at the end of the Rhodes...?

    But at the same time, I doubt that Barr would be thrilled to sign the tag and which may give the Vikings time to see if a trade materializes with a team that could sign him to the deal he is looking for.
