Forums - Sports Discussion - The NFL Thread 2019, Super Bowl LIV: 49ers vs. Chiefs

The NFC East sucks, but that might be exactly the reason why the Eagles could win the division with a positive record. All of their remaining four games are against NFC East teams. The winner of the NFC East should get at least to 8-8, so the Seahawks will remain the only division winner with a negative record.

The Redskins are 3-9 and still in the playoff race, so it's up to the Packers to eliminate Washington for good.

It's possible for any team to win the NFC East with 6 wins. They'd also be hosting the 49ers or Seahawks, who could have 12 or 13 wins, and at the same time Rams could miss the playoffs with 11 wins.

Wrap your head around all that for a moment.

Updated standings through this week (with the exception of PP, will get around to that).

Last week sucked.

I can't think of a time a coach has been fired like that, although the NFL is admittedly 100 years old now so there's plenty of room for something crazy to happen. That said...it's really rare (maybe even unheard of) for coaches to be hired from outside a team mid season. They're almost always promoted from within, generally because trying to get a grasp on a playbook in the middle of the year is really challenging.

I'm assuming you are talking about Ron Rivera he is going to get another coaching job pretty easily.  Plus he would be one of the prime candidates to be the next head coach for the Chicago Bears, but that further down the road since Matt Nagy has done enough to be the head coach again next season.

The only NFC East team that can win the division with 6 wins is Dallas, because all remaining scenarios for first place with only 6 wins have the Eagles, Redskins and Giants lose the tie-breaker vs. the Cowboys.

Rams with 11 wins would cap second place in the NFC West at 12 wins. It has happened multiple times before that a 12-win-team had to play on the road in the wild card round, so that's not something special. The 11-5 Saints had to visit the 7-9 Seahawks about ten years ago, so a gap of 4 wins is the worst it ever was.

Anyway, realistic scenarios for this season don't result in anything worse than what the Seahawks pulled off, so the NFL isn't going to hit a new low. There are too many games within the NFC East left and it won't be the Redskins and Giants who will get most of those wins.

@MTZehvor I can't open the template again this week, so I can't check what my picks were. Here's who I want to pick in Sunday's toss-up games.

IND@TB - Buccaneers
SF@NO - Saints
CAR@ATL - Falcons
LAC@JAX - Chargers
TEN@OAK - Titans
KC@NE - Chiefs

This list may contain only one or two changes.

Are you making sure to sign into Google when making your picks initially? I've had a couple of people make edits this week fine, so the form should be fine.

I am automatically signed in all the time. Today I only got the message that I had already sent an answer (meaning that I was definitely signed in when making picks earlier this week), but the usual buttons to send a new answer or edit the previous submission weren't there.

49ers and Saints might be the two best teams in the NFL. Incredible match between two well balanced sides. Compared to the shootout between Rams and Chiefs last year, the defense was actually better than the score implies, and half the points weren't scored off Mahomeboy's turnovers.

Who are the people that said Drew Brees was fading? Looked as good as any QB I've seen this year.



George Kittle is the best TE in all of football.
Change my mind.

Brady is averaging more rush yards than the running backs, o-line which was trending up is back to not protecting shit, and great job signing a kicker two days before the game, really paying off. Another day with the Patriots offense.

Edit: I should say that blocked FG was almost completely on the blocking, but I still have no faith in the kicker regardless.
