Watching but have the sound down.  How was that not a fumble recovery by Buffalo?

Only the Lions/Rams has been competitive past the first half

I'm not sure who is being more brutal to the Eagles right now, the Tampa Bay offense or the announcers who are excoriating this Eagles team for playing without any effort.

What happened to these Eagles? From the playoffs last year until the middle of this season the media would not shut up about how great the Eagles are.

Looks like they quit on their coaches.

They fell apart after getting blown out by the 49ers.

I wasn't expecting that much, so I'm just glad: a. Lions/Rams basically lived up to what it should have been, b. both Philly and Dallas got bounced despite getting pretty weak draws.

I'm thinking we'll get some more lopsided games next week, but Bills/Chiefs is fairly interesting given that it's in Buffalo this time.

Got a good friend who lives in Lockhart

Great BBQ there, or so I've heard.  I never venture out that far because I'm all about Black's BBQ in New Braunfels (not to be confused with Terry Black's, which is in Dallas and Austin).

It's crazy what a win-now league this is these days.  Jeff Fisher bought himself like a decade of goodwill (that only finally got snuffed out after that crazy 50-0 loss to New England or whatever it was) off of one Super Bowl appearance, and then another 5? 6? years of absolute mediocrity with the Rams.  Norv got to fail up into a gig with one of the most talented teams of all time and still couldn't win a Conference Title.  Wayne Fontes, Rich Kotite, etc. etc.

Now, a head coach comes off a near-Super Bowl win, follows it up with an implosion down the stretch and he's on the hotseat.  Not saying it's right or wrong, just kind of morbidly fascinating.

I was in the camp of no way you can fire Nick based on his overall record.  But it just looks like they quit on him.  Both sides of the ball.  Someone also noted that the offense looked terrible in 2022 when he was calling plays and then he turned it over to Steichen.  Success continued until Steichen left.  They play the Fangio style defense.  It was noted that all his coaching tree have defenses in the bottom of the league.  For sure the coordinators are gone and he better hire some good ones.

Matt Patricia infected them. That may be one of the dumbest panic hires that I can remember

He was there from the start of the season.  Made him DC later on.  Went from bad to worse.

The collapses of the offense is inexcusable.

Unless you are Brian Flores, who got fired for refusing to lose. Guy really should have gotten a second shot by now, but I can't imagine any owner wanting to bring on board a guy who sued the league.

Best guesses:
- Detroit over Tampa
- SF over Green Bay
- SF over Detroit

- Baltimore over Houston
- Buffalo over KC
- Baltimore over Buffalo

SB: Ravens over 49rs.

This seems like a March-madness type playoffs. Lots of Cinderellas early, but the big dogs will be left at the end.

Liked Nance's comment during the BIlls game - 'after yesterday, the Chiefs will find Buffalo quite balmy...'   :lol:

I wouldn’t bet against Mahomes in Buffalo. And would not be surprised to see an Allen turnover fest. 

Have the Eagles fired Sirianni yet?
