    I've heard ratings are down in LA more than the national average because LA used to get the best games every week. Now they've gone from zero to two teams so both networks have to show their games. Looking at the 506 sports map, the Denver stink bleeds into Montana and South Dakota which is ridiculous, those markets also have to endure that shitty Denver game this week.

    This post by fivethirtyeight from a couple years back is funny. If the NFL has an agreement with its franchises and gives them certain out of the area markets and that agreement is then forced on the networks, then why are the Arizona games never broadcast in Utah, New Mexico and Nevada? Why is that franchise royally screwed while viewers in Utah this year are forced to watch a terrible Denver team? Those stats are compiled from 2009-2014. The Cards made the Super Bowl during the 2008 season and made the playoffs 2-3 times during between 2009-2014.

    While I think Peyton Manning probably had an effect on these numbers, the evidence from this year (we're 15 out of 15 so far) indicates that they simply think that people can't get enough of a shitty Denver team. Maybe the league and the networks have it nailed down in most of the country regarding what games to show, but I think they severely overestimate the number of Denver fans outside of Colorado in the intermountain west and into the Dakotas and Nebraska. The fact that more Denver games were shown in the Boise market as opposed to Seahawks games is insane to me.

    I wonder how those Las Vegas Raiders will stake things up. Maybe kill off the cards.

    Also big thanks to Jimmy Garrapolo for singlehandedly improving Denver’s draft position while simultaneously creating ridiculous expectations for the 49ers next year.

    Denver is in prime position to talk themselves into Baker Mayfield.

    The Rams wanted to lose that game quite badly yesterday. Philly looks like one of the worst teams in the NFL without Wentz. But New Orleans wasn't going to let the Rams just walk into that #4 seed. Seeing that Atlanta went up 19-10 midway through the 4th against Carolina, New Orleans proceeded to give up 11 points in the last four minutes of the game, including a TD with 9 seconds left.

    If the 49ers hadn't beaten the Texans, the Broncos would have had the #4 pick. The 49ers would had to go 4-12 to get a higher draft slot themselves. The net benefit to the Broncos was zero at best.

    I would have preferred the 49ers lose the last game against the Rams. They dropped 3-4 spots alone by beating up on the Rams scrubs in a game the Rams were trying to lose.

    The chances of landing Chubb, Barkley or trading down to the dumb team that wants Mayfield went down quite a bit. The 49ers have the worst interior o-line in the league, no pass rush, only one CB under contract next year and mediocre skill players outside of Jimmy G. They needed to win a few games to finish the year to make the team attractive in free agency, but that was already accomplished prior to the game yesterday. They should have said Garoppolo had a stomach bug and kept him out of the game.

    Packers are cleaning house. GM Ted Thomson will be replaced, moving to a "Special Assistant" role, along with DC Dom Capers and several defensive coaches

    According to press reports the Thomson decision was "mutual".

    I'm kinda cheering for the Vikings to get to the SB. It would be cool to have the hosting stadium have their home team. Who gets to be home team? That would be kind of funny if they had to use the visitor locker room.

    Green Bay continues to clean house - the Offensive Coordinator and the QB couch have been relieved of their duties/are leaving. The OC might stay around in some capacity. He has been with GB for over 20 yrs in some capacity or another. The QB couch is leaving for other opertunties.

    As a Nevadan, I cringe at that. As a Broncos fan, I celebrate it. Dude was essentially a .500 coach for 5 years before being fired, and hasn't coached in a decade. I won't be shocked if he ends up being an above-average coach, but I'm doubting he'll be a great one.

    Yea, I didn’t get that either. He gets paid a 100M to go back to steam that he left? Weird.

    In fairness, he was traded away. But he wanted the trade, so you are technically correct. He won a SB with an absolutely stacked Tampa defense (and a decent offense), and then proceeded to be an average coach from there until he was fired.

    I wonder what kind of outs are in the contract for the Raiders. They haven't had a coach last more than 3 years since Gruden himself. Before that, the last one to go more than 3 years was Art Shell in 89-94. There's no way the can expect him to actually last 10 years. There must be some generous outs, such as "we don't have to pay you if we fire you."

    I have this sense (maybe it's wildly wrong) that we (people who grew up in Nevada) sing the state song an abnormal amount relative to other states. I still find myself singing it occasionally (certainly on the 31st of Oct).

    As someone who didn't grow up here, I don't get that sense. In fact, I've been to several elementary chorus programs, and I have yet to hear a rendition of "Home Means Nevada." Conversely, I'm pretty sure I sang "Utah, We Love Thee" at every chorus concert in elementary school.

    Third data point here.

    I grew up in Utah, but did not know until this very second that there was a state song.

    Conversely, my 11 year old daughter, who was born in Nevada, sings Home Means Nevada all the time.

    Are you talking about the NY Daily News report about Belichick being interested in the Giants?

    Clay Travis wrote about the ESPN story and thinks it came either directly from Belichick or someone very close to him (one of his sons possibly). The story makes Brady look like a kook and Kraft like a fool for not hanging onto Jimmy G. The Giants job isn't bad. They have Odell Beckham and Evan Engram, some pieces on defense and they can draft Darnold or Rosen.

    Yep.
    I hope it's not true. I know the Garappolo trade mortgages the future, and the only way to view it as this is the 'one last run' for the Pats. If it doesn't translate into a deep playoff run, the trade will be rightly viewed as a disaster.

    Brady, Belichick, and Kraft are all exceptional at what they do. But if they break it up after this year, none of them will have the same success as they had when together.

    It sounds like Belichick is still under contract, so he can't just go and coach the Giants if that's what he wants.

    If the rumor is true regarding the NY Giants, I wonder if Belichick planted the story with ESPN to cause Kraft to want to be rid of Belichick. Kind of like George Costanza driving around Yankee Stadium's parking lot with the World Series trophies in tow.
