McC out as Head Coach in Green Bay. Not one bit surprised, and glad they didn't wait until the end of the season because everyone knew it after yesterday's disaster against the Cards. The last few seasons have been exciting, but underachieving. Slow starts out of the gate thanks to young, uneven rosters. Ted Thompson's refusal to sign free agents never helped - draft and develop only works if you have stellar drafts. When Ron Wolf, Ted Thompson's mentor, was GM in Green Bay he had several stellar drafts, worked hard to trade for Favre when no one else cared, and none of it would have mattered had he not signed Reggie White, Don Beebe, Keith Jackson, Sean Jones, etc. Being caught without a decent backup QB twice doesn't help a QB-centric coach plead his case.

Still, McCarthy oversaw some excellent years and had a great run, even if there were more disappointing NFC Championship games than great ones, they still got there, which is more than I can say for the rest of the NFC North. McCarthy was never as beloved in Green Bay as Holmgren was, but perhaps expectations were just higher than they were in 1992. He was never the "mastermind" like a Belichek or Bill Walsh, or a personality like Andy Reid or Gruden, but his success over the past 12+ years speaks for itself. I'm sure he'll find another home soon enough, a lot of teams out there would be lucky to have him.


Part of my children growing up was in Wisconsin. During my formative years as far as getting into sports I was a Pack,Brewers and Bucks fan. Still a fan of all.

I knew the Packers were struggling this year, and from what I read and heard Mike has made some questionable decisions. It sounds like it might have been for the best. When you have a QB like Rogers you hate to waste him if things aren't working out. I like McCarthy. No doubt be will land on myhis feet and I am sure will get another HC job if he wants. Maybe take a year off and jump back in.

It's definitely been a weird season. The Packers battled elite teams like the Rams and Pats, but can barely stop garbage teams like the 49ers and Cards. Even the shut out of the Bills felt like a loss because its was so sloppy. Everything has seemed off, and that falls on the coach eventually. I'm a big fan of continuity, and McCarthy has been a solid rock while the Bears, Vikings, and Lions have gone through exactly 127 coaches over the past 15 years. But it had run its course, definitely run out of gas.

Well she's certainly not doing Mitch Trubisky or Chase Daniel any favors lately.

Holy crap, that lateral in Miami was crazy.

Mahomes might be the most exciting QB in decades. Hopefully his star doesn't fizzle, dude is fun to watch this season.

How crazy would it be if the Chargers and the Rams made the Super Bowl and we had a battle for LA? Or the Chargers and the Saints and Brees faces his old team? This season is getting pretty interesting.

I have not seen Mahomes play yet. Luck and the Colts bad a real good game yesterday and to seal the deal by pulling Clowney offside was priceless!

At any rate, should be a good one!

Been watching the games all day. Does the NFL want people to watch? Seems like every other play there is a flag. Whatever happened to football? Kind of getting tired of this. Doesn't really seem like much of the game it once was.

Nice win by the Colts. They are probably the hottest team going 7-1 since starting 1-5 and might not make the playoffs.

Jesus tho, an overnight penthouse/flophouse flip-flop or What
doormats/laughingstocks for a long time, suddenly The Browns are literally almost back to .500 & the talk of the town
LeBron meanwhile took with him the fortunes of the formerly high-flying Cavaliers -- who've sunk to the bottom of the lake/league
Guess the Browns now have a "prized coaching guru" in Gregg Williams -- "it was Hue Jackson's fault" etc etc

Good job in the fantasy league DanB. You had a really good team.

Somehow my team laid a complete egg in the 2nd round of the playoff. But on the season I went 3-0 vs Hemp

Pretty wild, fun season. A lot of teams rallied to make it in to the playoffs, it's all about when you peak and having patience. Colts, Texans, Ravens, Eagles, Seahawks, Cowboys were all looking very average mid-season yet all made the playoffs. Everyone figured the Rams and Pats would be in the mix, based on last season, but who saw the Saints, Chargers, and Chiefs being as good as they have been? Meanwhile, I was absolutely right about the Vikings taking a step backwards by switching QBs - you don't mess with chemistry.

Should be some exciting round 1 playoff games.

Colts started 1-5,finished 8-2. I might be biased, but I think they are the strongest of the wild card teams. After that,we shall see.

I agree about the Vikings.

They definitely turned it on and rallied. Houston started 0-3 and ended 11-5 - bizarre for 2 teams in the same division to rally like that (with Tennessee on their heals to boot). Can't say I've watched much AFC South football, but both Houston and Indy are 2-3 against teams that made the playoffs, including splitting the regular season series. Luck definitely gives Indy an edge, but it's a nice division matchup to kick things off on Saturday.

So who does everyone like in the playoffs?

Houston -1 Indy
Dallas -2 Seattle
Baltimore -2.5 Chargers
Chicago -6 Philly


The only game I really like is Philly and the points. Bears are good at home but Philly plays in the cold too so that shouldn't matter to them. Plus it's going to be unseasonably warm for January here in Chicago. As long is Foles is playing I will take the points.

All of these teams are incredibly close, I can't remember an opening round being so even. And not just even, but young and on the upswing, so there's less recent history to go by. Also, 3 out of 4 match ups have already met this season (Indy/Hous twice). It's really about who is peaking right now. My picks:

INDY - I'll take Luck over Houston's D
SEATTLE - I'll take Pete Carroll over Jason Garrett
CHARGERS - Ravens just beat the Chargers and are at home, but how far can the Lamar Jackson Train go?
PHILLY - Eagles have momentum

(These are where I got them at)

Colts +2
Seattle +2
LAC +3

Waiting on the last game, I see it's at Bears -6 1/2. If it hits 7 I'll definitely be on Philly. May not play this one at all.

These are the Vegas lines at the moment:

Indy +1
Seattle +2
Chargers +2.5
Philly +6.5

Don't care about the Indy game but my wife is a huge fan so I guess I have to root for them.

I hope Dallas loses because well, they're the Cowboys.

I might tease Baltimore and the Eagles.

Early line Chiefs -5.

At that, I'd like the Colts.
