Yep, the Lions still make the Bears look competent.

Except ... why would you not just call 3 runs and try and get 6.

As a bears fan I feel like I've seen a lot of bad coaching in my lifetime. Dan Campbell is fucking awful.

Why was that a running clock? He flipped out of bounds without being touched.

Even when the Saints were suffering through the literal worst defenses in the history of the national football league, I still thought they were a playoff team because of Sean Payton and Drew Brees. This is the first time since the 2006 season that I realize that my favorite team is not good enough to get to the playoffs even if they somehow manage to get a few lucky bounces & fall into the seventh seed this year.

Dola, it’s been a great run. And these struggles directly result from the lack of depth that resulted from the cap crunch that resulted from going all in the last few seasons. They are all decisions that made sense, and I do not regret them. Still, it’s been a while since I’ve had to figure out what other teams to root for during the playoffs.

They have really handled thing amazingly well for this long. There have been a couple of times during this run that the Saints were looking at cap problems that they were able to continue winning based on hitting on with some draft picks. Eventually the cap problems along with some injuries will catch up to you.

I don't understand this Taysom Hill situation. They are paying him $22M guaranteed by next year, but are starting garbage QBs in his place. He had no touches last night from what I can see, so is this just a case of management disagreeing with coaches, or is this some kind of crazy 4D chess?

He was injured last night.

I mean, he participated in practice and was active? If he's too hurt to play, why keep him active and waste a space? It just seems like a really odd situation.

He was active but would come in only if Trevor Siemian was injured. He had a fairly severe concussion before Winston was injured and then got a foot injury in his first game back. I expect he will replace Siemian once he is healthier.

On third down and fairly long (5-10 yards), every team throws the ball to the first-down marker or beyond about twice as often as the Lions do, most far more than that. Brad Congelio, Ph.D. ŸˆŸ“ŠŸ‘€Ÿ’ on Twitter: "Baker Mayfield absolutely GOES for it on 3rd down with 5-10 yds. to go. (cc'ing @karnsies817). Jared Goff on the other hand? I have no words (cc'ing @JeffRisdon).

Daniel Jones is surprisingly aggressive (cc'ing @StephieSmallls).

Positive signs from Tua there as the knock on him last season was his unwillingness to throw into tight windows.

I'm beginning to think that the Colts are pretty good.

Bengals are an above .500-looking team now and on the rise. The combination of Burrow-Chase-Mixon are good now and have a ton of potential to get better.

The Steelers are reeling due to a combination of injuries and a horrendous offensive line. I don't have any inside info into it, but I also feel like some (or most) of the Steeler's young wide receivers are not the greatest learners or maybe not great practice players. I've watched most of their games and I feel like a decent amount of the interceptions that have been thrown have been from the receivers doing the wrong thing. Chase Claypool, in particular, seems to have 3-4 bad plays per game where he either isn't looking when a pass comes, drops catchable passes, or makes stupid penalties (offensive PI or holding).

I'm beginning to think the Buccaneers aren't. Their defense hasn't looked good in a while. Maybe a combo of the two.

The Falcons playing well versus a bad team. Yay.
It is fun to watch Cordell Patterson continue going crazy. 2 tds today, and played a snap on defense as well. He has been the star of an all round blah team.

The more Insee of Tua (watching nearly every Dolphins game now I have Game Pass), the more impressed I am.

Rocky start today, but grew quickly into the game and is managing the game well.

Hopefully next season we have an O-Line, running game and a second receiver that allows a more expansive play book
