Speaking of "Fitting Ends"

The Browns Coaching search had a very fitting end to week 1.

Chip Kelly, no longer in the running.
Every other option so far has signed elsewhere.

Now, let's get serious, and move on to a coach that doesn't run a gimmick that wont work in cleveland, and start looking at "real" candidates. Not that I could even begin to identify who would be interested in the job. I mean, most browns fans want Cowher, or Gruden, or Saban. I just want a coach who isn't going to suck. I'd prefer one with previous experience as an NFL Head Coach, but not named McDaniels.

But they've created a problem. They want to hire the coach first, and then the GM, and make the GM a puppet to the VPFO and HC.

I guess Kelly decided to stay in college, where his team is always in the run for the BCS Championship... whereas Browns and Eagles will most likely take 3 years to be seriously competitive

Also, because we love to pile on the Jets

Also, there were news last week about Rex Ryan having a tattoo of his wife, wearing a sanchez jersey, while tebowing.

It's just an ugly tat, as most of them are.

Read the fine print on those PSLs.. I can't see how any sane person who wasn't using it as a business write-off would buy one.

I love RGIII's style of play. I enjoy watching him, and Wilson, and Colin K, and the guys who are a dual threat so much.

But man... This is brutal. I'm actually afraid to hear the results of the MRI. that knee... Well... that's not supposed to bend that way.

It took like 15 years but the Redskins finally got a covered practice field. Now hopefully it wont take another decade to get good turf at the stadium.

Frankly... if Goodell really cares about player safety, he should penalize owners who have terrible field conditions...

I mean, even Garcon was complaining about his home field... as early as november

And Pete Carroll has filed a complaint regarding the field: http://www.nbcwashington.com/blogs/capi ... 15942.html

And complaints about Soldier field are nothing new as well

Damn, I hope this weekend's games are better than last weekend's, but I'm not holding out much hope.

Texans @ Patriots - Somehow I see this as a repeat of the previous game, as the Texans looked like they were barely handling the Bengals. Hell, if that reciever could have held onto that end zone pass, they might have won. The Texans look even worse than they did the first time they played the Patriots.
Patriots 34, Texans 21.

Baltimore @ Denver - Denver is just so much more talented than Baltimore, from what I've seen. I don't expect Mr. Manning to get molested by their pass rush and I don't see them stopping the Denver defense either.
Broncos 24, Ravens 17.

Green Bay @ San Francisco - Aaron Rodgers has succeeded despite being sacked the most of any quarterback this year, so I don't see San Francisco's defense harassing him into making a lot of mistakes. Having Charles Woodson back is huge for the Packers too, making their defense a lot better.
Packers 27, 49ers 21

Seattle @ Atlanta - This looks like the trap game of the weekend, with Seattle coming in firing on all cylinders. Some people say momentum doesn't matter, but I think it's huge in this game. The Falcons, playing their starters the entire time, lost their last game to a Buccaneers team that had been on a 5 game losing streak. Atlanta has quietly been excellent this season, but I just have no faith in Matty Ice.
Seahawks 31, Falcons 17

Chime in with some predictions! I know y'all seem to know your stuff, so I could easily be missing something.

so following your predictions, we have the Packers vs Seahawks for the NFC and Pats vs Broncos

well i would be rooting for Pats vs Seahawks for Superbowl
mostly cause i am a seahawks fan, and pats fan due to my uncle playing HS ball with drew bledsoe (and i was born in Walla Walla, and live an hour from there so..)

honestly, i see the Packers vs the Pats
i love my hawks, but against the packers? it should be a good game, but i see the packers eeking out the win
