    NFL clearly biased towards the Pats. Chiefs taken out by refs last week as well, in case they would have given Bill , Tom and Robert a decent game.

    I wouldn't call it bias. I know, Even me!

    Just bad under-pressured refereeing. The "hold" when TEN were 7-0 up was a disgrace.

    The Titans didn't help themselves, but I'd say it's impossible to keep your head together with that standard all around you in Foxboro.

    When I see Pats fans (boards.ie/nfl.com) go all "woe is us, the NFL are against us", it's annoying. Hence my Kerry-esque comments.

    TLDR; Pats were always gonna win, but would have been nice to see them under a bit of pressure. Worried about Pitt tonight.

    Vikings-Saints is gonna be a classic.

    I was right to be worried about Pittsburgh. Game and time management was diabolical. Tomlin doesn't know what he's at!
    But he'll never get the sack. good game though. Big Ben couldn't have done much more really.

    Vikings-Saints was a cast-iron classic. That second half and that ending will go down in lore. Incredible game.

    Those Sunday playoff games were a joy to behold after a bit of a disappointment on Saturday night.

    Brady, Bortles, Foles and Keenum are the Final 4 QBs, the GOAT and three actual goats... Must be hard for the Patriots, beat 2 AFC South teams and you're in the Superbowl, give me bucket.
    Mon the Town!

    I don't read those fora but I listen to WEEI weekly and there is definitely a chip on shoulder developed within the fanbase but IMHO its somewhat understandable in the light of deflate-gate. It is interesting to hear people go on about marginal calls that went against the Titan's on Saturday yet those same people were quiet when the Chiefs were hard done by the week before. The commentary is too selective for me. And the article on ESPN last Week re. Brady/Garoppollo/BB/Craft was the worst pile of contrived nonsense ever and people are quoting it as fact. Again - very annoying! Its the whole narrative surrounding the Pats -
    Belicheat - deflatgate - AFC is crap - AFC East is crap - even in the post above this - AFC South is crap (pass the sick bucket comment) its constant. Everyone is looking for the Pats to take a fall which is fine - but the "woe is me" while annoying to others has somewhat developed over time.

    The Vikings / Saints finish was stomach churningly awful yet amazing at the same time. Keenum looked as surprised as anyone. I thought the Saints deserved to win but I suppose you couldn't begrudge the Vikings an NFC spot and they may never have a better chance than this to win a SB.

    I will get to the above tomorrow. But I must have watched this 30 times today...



    Buck's commentary was perfect.

    What a game that was.

    Thoughts on Josh Mayflowering the Colts?

    It reads like NE are coming apart at the seams the last couple of months and only Tom's greatness is getting them through.

    I think it all sets up perfectly for next season, when a hell-bent for revenge Patriots team tear up the league next season and make it to Superbowl LIII where the young pretender Jimmy Garoppolo waits to do battle with his former master, lose again and it's surely lights out for TB12, but a win at 41 years old, then there could be no question about the GOAT.

    Must be something to the notion that Belichick is either leaving or leaving soon i.e. next season. That or he was not convinced with the health of Luck for the Colts. If the Pats fall apart at the seems at this stage - after 18 winning seasons, 8 AFC Champs, 5 Superbowls - then I'm ok with that - it was always going to fall sharply when it did. Hey - we always have Brad Stevens starting his Dynasty across town with the Celtics - you could make a case he is already the 2nd best coach in the league after Pop!

    Guess there is hope for the Jets what with Cincy going to the SB....I don't think the moment will be too big for Joey B. Kid is game for the pressure...

    Brian Flores is not taking any prisoners. Fair play to him.

    IDK, I mean 24-25 overall started 1-7 this year in a league with mostly terrible teams...sometimes you have to go back and be a coordinator again. The guy the Giants hired may not work out but surely he has paid his dues. The Dolphins organization is a mess, Ill give him that.

    2 winning seasons in a row with the Dolphins ain't nothing. And 31 out of 32 white head coaches in a predominantly black league indicates there absolutely remains a problem.
