    The Many Saints of Newark (Sopranos prequel)

    Excellent point, but if Ralphie is seven or eight years older, that would explain his resentment even more. He got bunched in with the kids. Magnussen could definitely play younger than his 30.

    Magnussen = Ralph Cifaretto???

    NFL 2019: Wild Card, Mitches!

    Pasting twitter messages by any means other than copying and pasting the text is both ugly and annoying.

    It's either magic voodoo of the playoffs or repeat games. You say magic, I say repeats. I think we're done here.

    You may be mixing cause and effect here. Road teams likely do worse in the playoffs because of the disappearance of the protections of back-to-back (-to back) games. From your linked article " NFL home teams gain almost 5 extra points of win probability in the playoffs — again, after controlling for the fact that better teams tend to get more postseason home games. " Eight percent better chance before controlling for team quality, five percent after. I'd say this makes my point more than it refutes it.

    Westeros NFL Pick Em

    There are three games left, two each for 16 points and a third for 8. I still think I'm in it. I'd have to get all three right and the others only one each, but the games this weekend look very close on paper. If it weren't for the silly drop rule, I'd be much closer.

    There is a difference between "three road games" and "three straight trips to different time zones with the final two cross country" Since the 2002 expansion (previous Wild Card games could be at home), three teams have made the Super Bowl. 2005 Steelers - games at Cincy , at Indy, at Denver - two of those barely count as road trips. 2007 Giants - at Tampa, at Dallas, at Green Bay 2010 Packers - at Philly, at Atlanta, at Chicago None of them had anything like back-to-back cross country trips. 3 out of 64 is not the sort of number that inspires "should have", It's more of an indication of my point than a counter.

    A friend who makes very good money over the years on football gambling told me decades ago that an NFL team playing its third straight road game will almost never cover. The NFL almost never schedules such games as a result. Adding in the Chargers inexplicable decision to fly back to the West Coast after the Baltimore game, I'm surprised it was even that close. At some point fatigue sets in and you look brain dead - as they did. Were I a New England supporter, I'd not read too much in to that game. The Chargers style (zone, seldom more than 4 pass rushers) is Brady's wheelhouse. And any QB could have picked apart a defense when he had enough time to read write a novel.

    He may well. Especially if the team with the first overall pick that year is a team that gets early picks on a frequent basis because they keep screwing them up.

    I'm not as tall as I was when I was 22. I doubt Drew Brees is as tall as he was at that age either.

    If you think you know how tall any of the shorter quarterbacks are, you are kidding yourself. The closest to the truth you'll get is at the combine.

    Can't believe the Patriots ever hired that guy who flopped out in Cleveland.

    Seth is in touch with the worst side of his inner twelve year-old here. Porn and pee jokes - really?

    Fangio plus Kubiak should be an instant upgrade in Denver. Still lacking a QB, but might just be enough. The AFC West may be very tough next year if Gruden's system takes hold in Oakland/SantaClara/LasVegas/Fresno/SanDiego.
