  1. Jay Cutler in Denver

    If the 08 Broncos get into the playoffs, Shanahan wouldn't have been fired, and OC Jeremy Bates probably stays. That would have helped Cutler (Bates worked well with him). Also, an improved defense (the 08 Broncos D was one of the worst ever) and a more consistent running game with Peyton Hillis (the Broncos didn't have a great running game in 08 because of injuries) would have been a big help as well.
  2. You are right. I think that Jimmy got sick of playing the bad cop, which is one of the reasons why he wanted to leave when he did.
  3. That FG block may have been one of the pivotal plays of the 90's. Going into that game, the Bills were 2-1, but were blown out in Miami 30-7 a few weeks earlier. Marv Levy pulled some players out of that game, and they were upset (Darryl Talley was one of them). In Week 4, the Broncos were close to going up 24-9, and Darryl Talley was thinking about possibly getting pulled when lightning struck. The Bills won this game, and their next two home games with fourth quarter comebacks (over the Raiders and Jets) to start 5-1. It's very possible that those three home wins not only propelled the Bills to the SB that year, but the next three years after as well. If they don't win those games, and start 2-4, it's possible that things could have gotten ugly. The year before, they were known as the Bickering Bills, and you may have seen more of that in 1990. They also don't make it to the SB, more than likely.
  4. Who gets the top two seeds in AFC

    Kansas City and Pittsburgh. The Pats will probably end up winning 11 games at best.
  5. 1996: Ed McCaffrey's TD catch off of a deflection to win a game against the Vikings.
  6. Media obsession with putting Rodgers in the GOAT convo

    I didn't watch that game (not in my market), but didn't Houston have a turnover or two as well? Also, the Texans weren't playing their best ball.
  7. Media obsession with putting Rodgers in the GOAT convo

    Actually, what I should have said is that the Pats rarely make mistakes. In a lot of the Pats games I have seen over the years, they hang around until the other team makes a key mistake, and they use that to go on to victory. Last night was an example. GB made a key mistake with the fumble, and the Pats scored 14 unanswered points.
  8. Media obsession with putting Rodgers in the GOAT convo

    No. They won because they don't make mistakes. That is on Belichick. Someone I was watching the game with said that they will keep winning without Brady as long as they have Belichick and Kraft (that could be why Belichick was upset that he couldn't keep Garoppolo). They also win on mystique. I don't think the Pack really believed they could win tonight. I have seen that countless times over the last 14 years or so when a team plays NE. They don't believe in themselves, and they play way below their capability against the Pats.
  9. Worst Divisional Rivalry Ever

    Rams-49ers from 1990-98: The 49ers won every game but one.
  10. Broncos VS Texans GDT

    Well, at 3-6, this season is over. In two weeks, this team goes to LA to meet the Chargers, and they probably will be 3-7. Then, they play the hot Steelers at home the next week, with 3-8 a possibility. They should fire Vance tonight or tomorrow. I won't be surprised either way, though. The radio show Mornings at 5280 with Nate Lundy and Shawn Drotar (I think it was them) said something about how the Broncos may keep Joseph until the end of the year because they wanna sell the team and have Joseph be the scapegoat.
  11. Media obsession with putting Rodgers in the GOAT convo

    He didn't beat the MVP of the league and the 7th all-time ranked offense. That team beat themselves. And, the LOB wasn't the same beast in 2014 that Peyton Manning faced in the SB the year before. They were banged-up in SB 49.
  12. Media obsession with putting Rodgers in the GOAT convo

    The 2011 Patriots were 15th in scoring defense. And, he got closer to winning it because he wasn't playing the 86 Giants, 87 Skins, and 89 49ers (he was playing the 9-7 2011 Giants, and he couldn't even beat them). Also, the last two years, I wouldn't consider the AFC strong. The Pats got to their most recent SB's by default.
  13. Media obsession with putting Rodgers in the GOAT convo

    A lot of that has to do with the team Brady has played for and the coach that he has played for. It also has to do with the era that he plays in. Stats aren't as hard to accumulate today as they were 30+ years ago. And, as far as Elway (the Football's Future whipping boy, for some stupid reason) is concerned, he is in the GOAT convo for just what he did in the 80's: Carry under-talented teams on his back to Super Bowls that wouldn't have even been in the playoffs without him.
  14. Media obsession with putting Rodgers in the GOAT convo

    That's because winning SB's is a team accomplishment. This crap about anointing someone the GOAT because his team won a lot of SB's didn't seem to start until Montana. The media fuels this mess. It was irresponsible then, and it's irresponsible now. The media shouldn't be passing off their opinions as fact. And, in Brady's case, I think of the breaks that he has gotten, not the SB's he has won. I think of the Tuck Rule, John Kasay, and Marlon McCree when I think of Brady. If you take those things away, he isn't in any GOAT discussion.
  15. Media obsession with putting Rodgers in the GOAT convo

    Those coaches took over better teams than Belichick did. For example, the Browns were 9-5 and 6-8 in the two years before Rutigliano took over. And, Bud Carson took over a team that had been to the playoffs four straight years.
