Anybody but the Bears or Falcons. Not sure who this 49ers team is just now.
I feel for you, it's frustrating for me to watch Smith get benched for Kaep and I don't even give any fucks about the 49'ers. <Insert predicted joke about Sivin's infinite list of favorite teams, below>

The 49ers won the NFC championship last year???? I will let the Giants know.
Junior Seau wasn't enough for ya, eh?
Bronn, you're being obtuse. You know I was referencing the fact that they made it there at all.
Nope. I need something current, and I guess I could take something from the Jags if I have too.

As a Jets fan, if they do manage to sneak into that 6th seed, I'd say I wouldn't want to face anyone. And I have no doubt that the Jets would be one and done. But they did somehow give Indy their second worst loss of the year, 35-9 and they had a close game against the Texans but couldn't pull out the win, 23-17. So I dunno. Definitely wouldn't want to face New England or Denver, but I think the defense could at least keep them in any other game (if the offense can at least limit the turnovers).
I love your confidence. I also love Mark Sanchez's confidence, he goes out there like he's a real boy on every play.

Hard to take seriously when someone just doesn't get it. Both Kal and Mexal pointed out that snow games are fine as a novelty but should never happen in games that really matter.
Besides, the guy violated a good handful of thread-starting rules. You don't start the next one of a busy thread if you started the last one. You don't beat a dead horse if the other side toned it down when the mods came in.
In life there are just some folks who respond to the ringing of the clue phone by answering the door.
Damn it, BS. You can be a true asshole sometimes, but that last bit made me laugh my ass off.

Even with the first round pick, and even if we could guarantee we'd get a substantially better player in the mid-first as opposed to late-first, I'd still take a playoff appearance over that. You can probably even point to the Texans as a team who has followed this model of coming up just short of the playoffs repeatedly and building a stronger core than they probably would have otherwise had they made the playoffs earlier
But for a team that's made the playoffs as infrequently as the Redskins have, just the act of making the playoffs is immensely meaningful. For the Skins it wouldn't matter that they wouldn't be serious Superbowl contenders, the point is they're among that elite 12. If it's the Pats, they can take it or leave it at this point if for whatever reason they're not likely to go all the way, but for the Skins it makes the season a resounding success.
Anyway, I'd agree with this line of thinking in the NBA where everyone and their mother makes the playoffs and it isn't much of an accomplishment. And furthermore because missing the playoffs puts you in the lottery you get a shot at the next game-changing superstar in the sport. But in football, for my team, give me the playoffs everytime without a hesitation.
As much as I love Luck. It hurt so fucking much to go 2-14.

Wow. Are a lot of Bears fans retarded? Cutler might well be one of the very best QBs in the league right now if the Bears' O-line had more consistency than Swiss cheese. Even the Best Rookie Ever will struggle if he's running for his life every other play and getting sacked more often than any other QB.
Another true story.

No way. The Rams got robbed blind. RGIII is the Michael Jordan of the NFL. He WILL win multiple championships. He's just a freak. No other player can do the things he can do at the QB position. And he's only a rookie!
The Browns and Rams will regret for years playing it safe. They could have had RGIII. But we got him.
Welcome, my son. And now I give to you the gift of the thread's title for "Most Ridiculous Memeber." Use it well.

I wouldnt have given up what the Skins did for RG3, he is good no doubt. How are they going to support him, Overpay free agents, Skins have been doing that for years, nothing good came of it.
Weeds is no RG3 or Luck, but i am happy with how it turned out.
Also Browns 3 in a row!! Yet still called a bottom feeder by some.
Soon to be 4 in a row, i have no fear of the Skins, as they probably dont fear us either.
Am i the only one who thinks RG3 looks really weird when he wears a helmet, his hair i feel is the problem.
Listen, baby. You're Browns are a great feel-less-awful story. But the Browns fit the description "bottom-feeder" better than plankton.
