Knowing this country, that’ll be a 25 year prison sentence.

Only if he's a black man. White man is some light probation and a disappointed shake of the head. Maybe a sad, "you know better" message too.

Playoff expansion expected to be approved for this upcoming season, seven teams per conference with only the top seed getting a bye.

Can’t wait for a 12-4 team to get knocked out by a 7-9 team that shouldn’t be there.

If a 7-9 team can beat a 12-4 team, why shouldn't they be there?

If that’s the argument, why not just make the playoffs a 32 team tournament?

Letting nearly half the league in is just silly.  I’m fine with a 7-9 division champion making it because sometimes the division just sucks, but more playoff teams just means more .500 wild card teams making it.

It is a very stupid idea. Playoffs should be for the best teams only. But, the NFL just sees  more games equals more money.  And if it means a 7-9 team gets in the playoffs, at least that means a 10-6 team that might not normally make it, should make it now.

The NFL schedule and playoffs are pretty much perfect as is, so of course they'll fuck with it and screw it up.

This is what I've heard regarding schedule and playoff updates

- They are working on a 17 game season rather than 16. Dont know how shall impact the preseason, probably cut it down to three weeks then.

- They want to add one more team to each side of the playoffs. This would mean only first place in their area would get a bye. Also whoever would be 1st and skipping Wild Card Weekend would also apparently get paid for it even though their team didnt play.

I don't see a point in the 2 seed beating the piss out of a 7 seed on Wild Card weekend. The league is already perfect as it is. There's no point in changing the format unless there's an expansion.

Jamal Adams recently Tweeted out in support of a 17 game season.  The majority of players do not want 17 games due to the bodily sacrifice, but some players like Adams are in favor of it because of the extra week of game checks, roster bonuses, and increased incentives.

He then deleted his tweet after facing a backlash of criticism from former players, and Richard Sherman encouraged Adams to call him so they could discuss in more depth.  It's a complicated issue for the players to handle because any player supporting it is going to hurt their position in CBA negotiations.

IIRC he also said he wanted to die on the field - so he probably isn't the best guy to ask about this situation tbf..

Getting this in while we're on Brady Watch:

 

If Brady leaves: it's a good time for the Patriots to reset.  Our roster is one of the oldest in the league.  At some point Brady is going to step away anyway, so better now before he ends up a shell of his former self.  Is it worth it to spend $30-35m on a QB and leave less room to upgrade at other positions?  Is it worth it to win another SB and then have 3-4 years of sub .500 teams?

If Brady stays: time to bring home another ring...  Also nice to see the GOAT stay and finish his career in Foxboro.  It's rare to see players stay with one team their entire career.

Like alright, don't really care about this move. But...this really feels like a rebuild. I feel like I'm in the minority of Detroit fans lately that has absolutely zero faith in the current regime. That defense is fucking brutal and I really don't know if Bob Bob Quin knows what the fuck he's doing.

On the other hand, Patricias defensive scheme absolutely sucks in my mind. It's so conservative,  so fucking vanilla, just weak bullshit. They can't generate a pass rush by rushing four, but also fucking refuse to blitz. No wonder the secondary got shredded all year. I mean the talent isn't anything to write home about but they absolutely are not put in any sort of position to succeed. 

The offense should be alright, but here again Quinn is baffling with his personnel decisions. You have Graham Glasgow, pretty solid Olineman that can play center and guard, good locker room guy, durable, and you drafted him. We're just going to let him walk. Unless Glasgow flat out said "fuck you and your clownshow, I'm out" I just don't get not getting him locked down. Why create a hole you need to fill (lol)? 

I really think they should have just broomed everybody (like fucking everybody) and started fresh. Trade Slay, Stafford, and get ready for the future. 

I can't wait to see the 2020 season fiasco unfold. What bonehead draft pick will Bob Quinn make? Which free agent signing will flame out in pre-season? In what oddball slapstick fucking way will the Lions lose games this time?

Detroit only has Stafford for 1 more season and then they can get out from that contract. So they basically have 2 full drafts to find talent and draft their QB of the future. It's an enviable position. The Chiefs and Ravens both have had huge success because they retooled dramatically over 2 drafts. 

I have zero faith in the Detroit braintrust to do it right, but they definitely have the opportunity for a quick turnaround if they can find the right QB.

I don't get the business side of sports sometimes. Like we released Amukamara and Gabriel and I'm like "They are good what are we doing?!?" But I'm sure it's just a money thing
