RAMS v BROWNS is a tough call. I think the Browns would win.

I didn't watch more than the first quarter. After seeing 2 Eli Faces, I figured it was a foregone conclusion.

Jesus, man. The playoffs are going to be a lot less interesting without David Carr or Marcus Mariotta in them. Instead we apparently get fucking Matt McGloin and Tom Savage/Brock Lobster. It's like the universe just wants the NFL Playoffs to suck.

I think Lockett broke both. Carroll also mentioned something about the risk of infection because the skin was broken  ACK! No wonder Doug Baldwin was in tears.

Ball is live on a kick-off and can be fielded by either team.

What would have happened if a Bills player had jumped on the ball in their own endzone then? Safety?

Handled properly, simple touchback. Handled like an inebriated platypus jonesing for meth, well, that clusterfuck.

Edit to add, that's if the ball makes it in while in flight. Rolling like that, dude should have grabbed it up, or ideally, some dipfuck catches it. That whole play was incompetence incarnate.

Touchback.

On a kickoff/punt the point of first touch is the point where the ball "enters play". So if the ball bounces in bounds and then goes out of bounds its still a kick "out of bounds"*. The ball rolling into the end zone is the exact same as if the ball was kicked into the end zone. From there, standard punt/kickoff rules apply.

Safeties only occur when either you're attempting to run the ball out of the end zone or you had possession at the start of the play. So if he picked it up and got tackled its a touchback. If he attempted to pick it up and fumbled it out the back of the end zone its a touchback. It would only be if he picked it up and attempted to run out of the end zone then got tackled that it would be a safety. Which while also stupid and would definitely have made deadspin would have been miles less stupid than what was actually done.

*As exemplified by a few recent occurances where a kickoff was kicked very close to the sidelines close to the goal line after which a smart player puts their feet out of bounds and reaches out to touch the ball. Ball is now possessed and the point at which its possessed is out of bounds(because the player is). The ball was never possessed in bounds and so its a kick out of bounds(which places the ball on the 40 instead of 25 iirc)

Denver hires Miami defensive coordinator as head coach.

I'm just... what about the Dolphins this year made you think their defense was good? Hint: it wasn't good. 29th in total defense and 18th in scoring defense. Oh and Wade Phillips' (Denver's current DC and defensive genius coach) contract has expired, so the DC may not return and Joseph may call his own defensive plays.

OK THEN.

Rams got shitty ratings and spectators in LA (because they sucked ass - also because the LA market isn't great for football). Every NFL team that has moved to Los Angeles has moved away after ratings and attendance declines. I know! Let's put not one but TWO shitty teams in the same market! That's bound to work this time!

HINT: It didn't work last time and that was when at least one of the teams was good.

With the stadium stuff pushing out working class fans, the teams moving to chase bigger TV markets, the rookie pay scale meaning vets get replaced with untested draft picks, and the international bullshit, the NFL is trying really hard to slay the golden goose.

This year's ratings decline was not an accident. I've said before that once the 30-something crop of QBs retires, the 20-something group is woefully unprepared to carry the mantle of the NFL. And the ratings didn't take a hit over the election, it was because you have a ridiculous gap in the league now between haves and have-nots.

18 starting QBs were drafted after 2010. Of those 18 teams, 3 of them in the AFC had QBs after 2010, 2 in the NFC. Of those 5, 3 remain. There could be zero by the time the NFC/AFC championship rolls around, but max I think 2 will be left. Russel Wilson and Dak Prescott.

Rams were bad, but the stadium is also a hellhole. Sitting in 90+ degree weather without shade or water (they ran out of bottled water in the first week or two during a game) would fucking suck, and I would never pay to watch a shitty team AND cook in the sun when I could watch at home in air conditioning. If the team gets watchable, more people will come. They will have to build a fan base. When the young kids now are adults and have grown up with a home town football team, they may be better off. Building a modern stadium will definitely expedite things.

Honestly, I'm not sure why anyone would bother going to see an NFL game in person. I could spend a Sunday afternoon surrounded by loud, obnoxious people, spending a mint on garbage food, all while stting with a shitty view of the action OR I could sit at home, make whatever lunch/snacks I want before the game for a fraction of the price and at higher quality, great view, great replays, no line for the bathroom, can switch to another game if the one I'm watching sucks.

I mean it just isn't close.

The only team that could possibly do well in LA is the Raiders, because gangs like the pirate merch. But they still won't do as well as they do in Oakland.

Maybe with the Rams blue, a red team could move there for a nice color war.

Win or lose, the hate never changes  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

That being said, I just shake my head at our coaches. I wish we had a real staff that actually knew how to sub because we got burned twice on illegal sub penalties, and got Aaron extended drives, plus a dumbass offsides free play TD. The whole first half was a fucking nightmare that was too much. We're not built to play comeback football.

We need a better defense, bar none. Until we have that, I don't trust any offense that doesn't have an elite QB against another elite QB.
