Or that the Lions are an average roster on their 3rd QB, the Bengals have been straight tanking from the beginning, the Jaguars really suck, and Kyle Allen is more pumpkin than gilded carriage for the Panthers.

Shut up, this is fringe science.  People used to believe the Earth was round.

He's just like all mental cases. Eventually the crazy comes out and the coach says enough. You can claim Cleveland got the better of it, but what have they done with him? We got nothing out of Kizer but reality is Cleveland got nothing out of Randall. 

We can put to rest the idea some trotted out that Randall was not a distraction or locker room problem. Clearly he is and was here too. 

That's changing the definition of nothing into "nothing that changed a season" or something like that. They got more out of it that us. It's not debatable. I'd like to hear more on exactly why he's not traveling with the team other than everyone trying to justify their take that he's a POS like they thought all along, there hasn't been a peep why and everyone is assuming so far.

A lot can change in a year. In 2018, free safety Damarious Randall was playing the best football of his life for the Cleveland Browns and looked poised for another big season. 

Now in Week 13 of the 2019 season, Randall is all but gone as he's become a healthy scratch as the team flies to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers.

A league source told cleveland.com that coach Freddie Kitchens made the move for something that happened during the week.

What the H must Randall have done to get benched for behavior by the least disciplined team in the NFL? 

Against the Browns arch-rival, with their playoff chances on the line?

The entire flat Earth thing is just a lasting joke

if you take a look at the two top-selling flat earth books on amazon, one is literal Nazi propaganda and the other was written by a retired woman while on a cruise ship and most pages contain screenshots of her game of The Sims

I hope they have free previews...

Talk about any given Sunday:  The Dolphins entered the game with the 30th ranked offense in terms of yardage and points. The Eagles, after allowing just six net yards on the first three Miami possessions, gave up 409 total yards for the game.

MMQB : Power Rankings

1. BALTIMORE RAVENS (10-2)
2. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (10-2) - Much like the game the Niners lost to the Seahawks, this loss to the Ravens could conceivably be spun as a moral victory for San Fran. It was tight throughout both on the scoreboard and on the stat sheet, but this failed fourth-and-one proved to be the decider. A great outing for Raheem Mostert, who rumbled for 146 yards on 19 carries.
3. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (10-2) - The Seahawks churned out their fifth straight win—all of which were by fewer than 10 points—in a roller-coaster ride Monday night against the Vikings, and took over the No. 2 spot in the NFC. Could this team go all the way? It’s as good a bet as ever in a conference where you could argue for or against the 49ers, Saints, Packers or, yes, Vikings.
4. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (10-2)
5. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (8-4)
6. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (10-2) - Sean Payton looked primed for an aneurysm after the Falcons’ third onside kick, but it didn’t come back to bite the Saints. Still, that’s two shaky outings in a row for New Orleans ahead of their showdown with the Niners. Two touchdowns (one rushing, one receiving) for Taysom Hill helped cover for sluggish (by their standards) outings from Brees, Thomas and Kamara.
T-7. GREEN BAY PACKERS (9-3) - Previous rank: 8 - Scoring 31 points in the snow is impressive, as is a final quarterback line of 21-of-33, 243 yards and four touchdowns (125.4 rating). Considering the Packers only rushed for 79 yards as a team, Aaron Rodgers’ efforts deserve a golf clap as Green Bay bounced back nicely from a crummy outing against San Francisco.
T-7. MINNESOTA VIKINGS (8-3) - The Vikings stumbled in a tight one against the Seahawks on Monday Night Football, but they’re still hanging onto the second wild-card spot in the NFC playoffs. Can they hold off the Rams down the stretch?
9. BUFFALO BILLS (9-3)
10. HOUSTON TEXANS (8-4)

13. DALLAS COWBOYS (6-6) - Tough week for the NFC East when Washington is the only one winning. The Cowboys continue to fail the only test that matters–beat a winning team–with this Thanksgiving debacle at home. The box score looked fine for Dak (32-of-49, 355 yards, 2 TDs, INT, 91.8 rating), but a pair of turnovers within four offensive snaps of each other hurt. Also, a team with this much offensive firepower CANNOT go over 45 minutes of game time without scoring. As Jerry would say, it’s pretty glaring why they couldn’t get it done.
T-21. CHICAGO BEARS (6-6) - Mitchell Trubsiky has had a turd of a season–except against the Lions. A 29-of-38 afternoon with 338 yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT and a 118.1 rating was enough to squeak past a team giving a third-string quarterback his first career start, and that’s wins in three of the last four (two against Detroit, one against the Giants) for the Bears.
23. CAROLINA PANTHERS (5-7) - Now, THIS is a team that’s taken a hard left turn off the road, gotten stuck in the mud and overheated the motor trying to back out. Christian McCaffery never quite got going, and the Panthers’ defense surrendered 248 rushing yards to a less-than-prolific ground attack. You can’t sugarcoat a loss to the R-words, especially when it drops you to 5-7.
29. WASHINGTON REDSKINS (3-9) - Previous rank: 31 - Similar to the Dolphins, sometimes a win is just too easy to pass up. Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson combined for 228 rushing yards and 3 TDs on 23 carries against a limp Carolina front, and that’s all it really took for a second meaningless win in a row.
30. DETROIT LIONS (3-8-1) - The David Blough experiment looked like it might work for a half, but late-game execution again let the Lions down. Kenny Golladay still managed to reel in four balls for 158 yards and a touchdown, and the Lions continue to creep closer to a top five pick.

The first domino falls...........

Ian Rapoport -  The Panthers have fired coach Ron Rivera.

  • Tom Pelissero -  The end of the Ron Rivera era in Carolina after this season had been considered a virtual certainty for some time in league circles. It arrives early, with the team on a four-game losing streak with four to play.
