You thought you got rid of us! As Lee Corso once said: not so fast!
Fredy and I are back to make our divisional round picks. Now don’t worry, you can find our original picks for the entire playoffs here (congrats to Fredy for going 2-2), and feel free to hold us accountable to those once the playoffs are over.
However, we asked the people if they wanted us to make picks for the divisional round….
With the playoffs starting this weekend, Fredy and I will be making our predictions on how we think the playoffs will pan out. Feel free to come back to this page and question our football knowledge in a few weeks!
Over the next few weeks, with head coaching openings across the NFL, you can use this page to link to recent stories on candidates connected to respective jobs, and who ultimately lands the gig. I will also add in my two cents on who I believe should get hired (and will admit if I was right or wrong once a final choice is made). I will try to update this page as often as possible (probably daily), but I will not change who I think should initially get the job.
We’re less than a week away from Black Monday, the day when NFL coaches typically receive word that they have been fired. Obviously this is a tough time for many, and I wish no ill-will towards those who’s futures are in flux. However, openings across the league create hope and potential for a fresh start.
This discussion seems to be occurring preemptively with the New York Jets.
Reports are surfacing this week that Tom Brady has a knee injury that is significantly setting him back. Brady was listed on the injury report prior to the Jets game last month, and reporters are citing certain film as evidence that the injury is effecting his gameplay. Brady has played throughout injuries his entire career, and as much as we joke about the TB12 method, we have to acknowledge that he is one tough SOB. I do not expect Brady to sit due to this injury, but at 41, can we expect him to play around it to the level the Pats need to make a playoff run?
