Chip is going to do well in Tennessee.

Fans of other teams/cities are texting me and tweeting at me apologizing for how sorry the state of sports is in Philadelphia.

If I were Chip, I wouldn't want to attach my legacy to one player (Mariota) like that.

But hell, it's not like they can get any worse.

Why didn't Philly wait until the season was over to fire Kelly? There was one game left.

Losing to the Redskins is an indignity that no franchise can bear. We also got Rob Ryan fired earlier this year.

Personally, I think it's an overreaction.

I guess it's time to focus on the Flyers missing the playoffs but also not getting a good draft pick.

I wanted him to succeed, but his schemes were figured out eventually, and he's not quite the shrewd roster-builder he seems to think he is.

Oof.

He was too inflexible. What had made him a good coach was embracing new things he learned. He didn't do that at the NFL level. He didn't adjust to having to deal with players differently than in college. He didn't adjust to the practice regimens not making the difference he thought they would. He didn't adjust to oversimplifying his offensive scheme. He didn't adjust when his criteria for evaluating talent wasn't working.

He didn't adjust. He's smart enough that, if he returns to embracing those adjustments, he'll succeed at his next job.

NFL 2015 Part 2: There's a Flag Down

I don't like our chances against Seattle. It would be murder, like the last three times. My stomach is sinking watching them play right now.

The Packers have some obvious flaws and they aren't a great road team, but our secondary is so beat up that Rodgers would probably abuse it. That would be a shootout.

No matter what, it's been a fantastic season and I'm thrilled about our future.

Whoever came out of the NFC East this year likely had a 2.5% chance of victory no matter which of the four teams, or who the opponent was. The whole division was one big dumpster fire all year.

Also, the face on the guy in the background of that gif just made me lose it all over again

There is absolutely no reason for Minnesota to even attempt to win this game tonight.

Sit everyone, show them nothing, take your chances against a shitty Green Bay team on the road instead of a peaking Seattle at home.

Speak for yourself. I think the Skins have established themselves over the past month as clearly the division's best team.

That said, they haven't beaten a good team yet. I doubt that starts now, but man are they playing some good football at the moment.

I think it would be great if the Redskins suddenly went on a run and ended up in the Super Bowl. However, i don't ever see them getting past Carolina, who should win it all.

Neither of these teams are playing with any passion whatsoever. The Vikings don't surprise me, but the playcalling from McCarthy has been terrible.
