    Curious about your guy's thoughts on the playoff system being proposed. Sounds like an interesting proposition:

    -Six wild-card weekend games (currently four)
    -Four divisional-round games
    -Two conference championships
    -Super Bowl

    I think this greatly benefits the Packers (NFC North in general) in the long run, generally, the North is a historically solid division. But a more recent example would be I think it would have been nice to see the Rams get a shot at the playoffs I don't know if you can make an argument Philly deserved a spot over LA, but this solves that dilemma of the 3 team divisions like the West was. If I read right it would have been Philly v. LA it takes away the question did this team deserve to get in.

    My thinking is something like this was going to be inevitable. Between 2010-20145 season I think five 10-6 teams were left out of the playoffs. The thing I like about this would be it would make the #1 seed something to fight for. I know this isn't a perfect system and the whole diluting argument, but I think the pros outweigh the cons and could lead to fewer pre-season games and more meaningful games. I think other changes need to come in the next CBA, but this one is interesting, to say the least.

    It's crazy they have over 20 mil in cap locked into a bunch of TEs either really ineffective because they are past their prime or just not very good.

    not really... its the bills first this year... basically 1st/4th and 5th for a sick wideout for their young QB. Vikings are ****ed now... Cousins is cousins and lost his best weapon

    Such a dumb move for Brady, not that I want to see him get another ring, but he should have gone to a place he could contend for one.

    In other news Littleton to Raiders on 11.75 AAV. No way we afforded that deal.

    Shoebert to Jags at 10.55 AAV.
