NFL (since 2016)
Free agency started last night and was pretty crazy some huge money being spent.

Osweiler getting £18m a year for the Texans, leaving the Broncos without a QB,

Giants have spent a fortune on good but not great players, Oliver Vernon has more guaranteed money than JJ Watt.

lots more deals but cant be bothered to list them all.

Think it would be hysterical if the Bills finally make it back to the superbowl only for their long time tormenter Brady to defeat them again and send them home disappointed

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Personally, I think what will decide Packers/Buccs is not Rodgers v Brady, as the media constantly has it. They're both superb QBs. The deciding factor is likely to be how well Brady copes with the Packers' hit-and-miss defense, which has been Green Bay's weak spot all season.

Pettine probably needs to show Brady a bit more of Rex Ryan's "46" defense and less of the 5-2 formation he seems to like. Ryan always made life difficult for Brady - the Jets just didn't have a good offense at the time, so we always seemed to lose 17-10 or 20-7 to the Patsies. Ryan threw aggressive pass-rushes at Brady for 60 minutes. But the Q is whether Pettine learnt from that.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I’d like to see a Bills-Packers Super Bowl.

But my prediction is that it will be Chiefs-Buccs.

Can’t see Buffalo upsetting Reid’s offense unless Mahomes is still wandering around in a daze (which is possible!). I like the look of Rodgers v Buccs defense, but I fear Brady could pick apart the Packers’ defense: it’s run by ex-Jets assistant Mike Pettine and Brady will be familiar with his schemes. I like Pettine, but his defenses have always underperformed (he was lucky to have Rex Ryan as HC in New York).

So I’m going Chiefs-Buccs.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I am going for the Packers and the Bills.
Rogers filleted the Rams defence and he will do the same to the Bucs.
The Chiefs defence are going to have to get after Josh Allen or else I think he will outscore Mahomes and his bashed head and turf toe.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I want the Bills to win a superbowl, they should have in the early 90s,I loved thurman thomas. it makes you laugh how quickly they cleared mahomes to play, they'd no doubt let him be wheeled out in a chair to hit the ratings they want. hopefully allen learnt from the game earlier in the season and lights them up. the other game, I'm not too fussed but probably dislike rodgers more than brady, so I'll be supporting the bucs

Pwopa old school stadium, Lambeau Field

Re: NFL (since 2016)
To watch a playoff game at Lambeau is on the bucket list. Any NFL fan should make that pilgrimage. Don't mind who makes it to the Super Bowl. But wouldn't mind if the Bills won it all.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Championship weekend - cannot wait to watch both games.

My predictions:

Buccaneers @ Packers

With Brady as QB you are always in with a shot even if he is considered 'old' now. The Buccaneers have done very well to get this far but I think this is one game too far for them. The Packers with Rodgers and a balanced offence as well as defence should prove too much for the Buccaneers especially playing at Lambeau

Packers by 10-14 and a place in the Superbowl

Bills @ Chiefs

A lot will be made of Mahomes injury but unless he is in a wheelchair I cannot see him missing this one - quite how he reacts to having some form of hinderance is anyone's guess however I would probably say he is 95% fit to go unless I have missed something and he is actually out. The Bills are strong all over and I give them a shot at taking the Chiefs down IF they get every aspect of their running game firing. This will be a close one

Chiefs by 3-7 and a place in the Superbow

Really sad Ricers has called it a day, one of my all time favourite players. Absolute legendary trash talker without ever swearing. If you get chance go and listen to his mic'd up segments that have been released.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I don’t believe for one moment that the Eagles interviewed McDaniels for nine hours straight.

That’s just press guff and posturing by those briefing the media.

He would have spoken to them in slots, with breaks etc.

The question for Eagles fans is how much time did they actually spend interviewing the new HC: not how long was in the same city as the owners.

This all looks rushed and far from thorough. Everybody says they are thorough when they speak to the media afterwards.

*lost a head coach*

Takashi Miike 2:29 Fri Jan 22
Re: NFL (since 2016)
he's been on a number of teams that have lost a year coach yet he's been kept on, so he's very capable and respected. he's also a more likable bloke than mcdaniels, so sadly I think he'll do well

if you get time later today, watch dan campbells press conference. that is one interesting character :.)

Re: NFL (since 2016)
I’ve been following the Eagles recruitment quite closely with multiple podcasts and articles. They certainly cast the net far and wide and were even taking criticism for not speeding it up.

They had a 9 hour interview with Josh McDaniels last Sunday and a two day interview with Sirrianni over Tuesday and Wednesday. Apparently he impressed a great deal. The impression is that he is very intelligent, popular in the dressing room, and doesn’t take any shit.

Can’t say whether it will work out, one of the drawbacks is that, as a smaller name he will not have the clout to challenge the GM and the owner so they may have more of a voice than they should in what coaches he has to work with. They love that, and a more established candidate probably wouldn’t have signed up to it so easily.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Really odd hire for the Eagles.

Siriani is a hard worker but, irrespective of his talent, it looks like they've hired somebody who could have done with a couple more years' worth of experience.

I'm sure he's good at the Xs and Os, but he's going to need a lot more savvy on top if he's going to survive as a HC in Philly.

I don't really understand this modern phenomenon of franchises giving undue weight to recommendations from 'names'. The Jets gave Gase another shot (after Miami) once Manning gave his mate a good reference. Others, too. Now it looks like Frank Reich (ex-Philly OC) gave Siriani an unsurprisingly good reference.

Do any of these teams actually go through a robust recruitment process any more?

GM: Welcome to Philly, Nick.
NS: Thanks.
GM: Ha, ha, ha! You've got a great sense of humour.
NS: What?
GM: Says here that Frank Reich speaks highly of you.
NS: It says that now.
[Puts pen away]
GM: Well, Frank's a good old Philly boy. The job's yours.
NS: Huh? Aren't you going to ask me about Xs and Os? Management style? How I'm going to deal with the defense, having been an OC the whole time?
GM: Nope. No need. If good old Frank says you're a diamond, then you're a diamond. Welcome to Philadelphia, head coach...

Nice one and well done to your brother.
At least he doesn't have to sort out their secondary - now that is a big job.
