  1. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    You don’t think any foul play involving NE - regardless it’s actuality, significance, or truth - would be overplayed in the media? If so, I disagree. It’s been a day and I’ve already heard earfuls of how NE gets all the calls, Edelman touched the ball, Hogan dropped the ball, etc. We hear it whenever there are communication issues in Gillette - despite the fact that that happens in every stadium. Sorry, but I’m not buying that there wouldn’t be a ton of people saying it’s the Pats cheating if Mahomes was getting lasered in the eye during the game, especially if it happened in NE.
  2. Who's The Greatest Player of All Time?

    Sigh. It’s like I have to post this every year when people buy narratives over facts. Win percentage against non-division opponents, Brady era sans 2017 and 18. AFC East sans Pats: .473 AFC West: .500 (.466 sans Broncos). AFC South: .486 (.442 sans Colts). AFC North: .510 (.476 sans Steelers). NFC East: .525 (.510 sans Eagles). NFC West: .440 (.404 sans Seahawks). NFC North: .480 (.446 sans Packers). NFC South: .511 (.494 sans Falcons). Patriots win % against division: .776 Patriots win % outside division: .759 (the following three percentages were AFC teams - Steelers, Colts, Broncos). Patriots win % against teams that finished 9-7 or better: .610 (that percentage is higher than any percentage of any team in the NFC overall except for Green Bay). The only other team with a winning record vs 9-7 or better opponents is Pittsburgh. Patriots win % against teams that finished in the playoffs: .622 (no other team even had a winning record). 2002: Jets playoff appearance (Dolphins miss at 9-7). 2003: Dolphins miss playoffs at 10-6. 2004: Jets playoff appearance. 2005: Dolphins miss playoffs at 9-7. 2006: Jets playoff appearance. 2007: All teams obliterated. 2008: Dolphins playoff appearance. 2009: Jets playoff appearance. 2010: Jets playoff appearance. 2011: Jets miss playoffs at 8-8. 2012: All teams with losing records. 2013: Jets/Dolphins miss playoffs at 8-8. 2014: Bills miss playoffs at 9-7. 2015: Jets miss playoffs at 10-6. 2016: Dolphins playoff appearance. 2017: Bills playoff appearance. The idea that NE benefits so much from a weak division/conference is false.
  3. Can Pats challenge Bills?

    Little early to call, but odds are - no.
  4. Was this the worst call in NFL history?

    I don’t know - I still remember that fumble call in the Browns/Skins game.
  5. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    When you look at all the angles, he doesn’t touch it.
  6. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    Call will stand. It’s too close.
  7. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    There were 4 open receivers on that play, lol.
  8. Rams vs Saints - part II

    Horrendous non-call.
  9. Michael Thomas vs Tyreek Hill

    Michael Thomas has better WR skills, Tyreek Hill is the more dangerous/dynamic player. I’d take Hill.
  10. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    Sammy Watkins?
  11. Legit question for you or anyone else: have you ever used stickum? I’ve used nice football gloves (although how they compare to NFL quality gloves, I can’t say for sure) and they are obviously incredibly sticky, especially when they’re new. But I’m curious how sticky stickum actually is.
  12. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    Agreed. This team hasn’t shown any sort of consistent ability to perform well on the road. If they bring the level of play they had against LAC, it’ll be a big surprise to me.
  13. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    I see there is a lot of talk about how the Pats historically haven’t had to go on the road to win AFCCGs sans 2001 or don’t make SBs without a bye. Does anyone consider that maybe it’s not that they can’t win on the road in a AFCCG, but that the teams that get HFA are just of much higher quality than those that don’t? This year for example, isn’t a particularly strong NE team and now as a result, they have to go on the road. If they lose this week, I’m sure there’ll be a bunch of people saying “NE can’t win playoff games on the road” - which would seem true at face value, but it’s pretty apparent that they’re just not that high quality of a team compared to other championship seasons. I think people are switching the chicken and the egg, a little bit.
  14. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    Hope I’m wrong, but I’m picking KC. In Kansas City, I think it’ll be a high scoring affair where Mahomes pulls away late. Damien Williams will be a big factor the way Hunt was in their Week 1 matchup two seasons ago.
