The 2017-2018 NFL Thread: Divisional Playoff Round. The best weekend of football

It’s shitty but just for his little stunt that he pulled Jerry deserves all of this karma. Be even better if they dont make the playoffs either.


#1534

NFL Owners are going to have a meeting with Goddell where they want to institute a ban on Anthem protest, that is where the shitstorm will really start.


#1535

I hope we see forfeits as a form of player protest to Goodell and the owners.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie suspended indefinitely


#1537

It was bound to happen, viewership has been down for 2 years and the NFL hasn’t seen the increase in revenue that it had.


#1538

If they’re serious about protesting, then yeah, players are gonna have to be willing to sit out and cause forfeits.


#1539

Everyone talks tough until their own money is on the line.


#1540

That’s why the owners can make this play. Very few players will have enough balls to consciously give up game checks, and even less players are gonna allow other players to fuck that up for them.


#1541

Welp, already feeling the issues without Lane Johnson.


#1542

Amazing how everyone quit running a spy on Cam which has been proven he struggles against.


#1543

Usage of McCafferey makes it really hard to spy him now.


#1544

Yeah McCaffery has been great as a decoy. Philly has had some awful offensive playcalling, Blount has been working lets not use him, ineffective runs to the outside no safety valve on passes.


#1545

Yeah, it’s Carolina’s game free.


#1546

That is why you use Blount, Philly likes to try to get fancy when they don’t need to.


#1547

I’ll say this, and I hate saying this sort of thing, but the refs are out for blood against Philly. I was fine with the PI, but the other penalties have been some shaky shit, and then Blount gets no-called after they called Unsportsmanlike Conduct on him for an extremely similar play.


#1548

Yeah, but y’all got a badass QB though.


#1549

That’s the damn truth.


#1550

Yeah that should have been a flag but the official didn’t look interested in throwing it.


#1551

Great game right now. Some ref calls notwithstanding, definitely feels more MNF than TNF which is fantastic. I hope LK is okay though for Carolina. I mean as much as I would enjoy playing against their D without him flying around out there, ultimately the goal of this game for both teams is testing each other and getting out of here with no injuries.


#1552

Mills is killing that Philly defense, no reason to even get that PI, the receiver had no shot at it.
