    I don’t disagree. The fact that something so fundamental, doing right by your fellow man, has the potential to split this wonderfully talented team is hard on this old man.

    It is hard. I have a scientific background, and skepticism based in reason and logic is fine, but what has happened over the last few years is a travesty. People would rather believe in conspiracy theories or would rather see hundreds of thousands of their fellow man die because they rather reach herd immunity naturally. For me it just feels selfish and immature.

    I really hope this happens. While teams like Bama, Ohio St, Clemson, and Oklahoma deserve to be in the playoffs most year because they have the talent, it would be nice to see some other near worthy teams get a crack at it. I think 12 is a really good amount. Any more and it would water down the experience and 4 I also felt was not enough. It makes sense to have a big tournament for college basketball, but it would be terrible for football. 12 is just right.

    They have only had 1 playoff win in the last 50 years


    Which is bad. But come on, do we really get to say much when we are like near last place in the race? It’s like being happy we didn’t place last lol woooooooooo we didn’t finish last!! Look at our fancy participation trophies!

    Between '88-'99 the Bills made the playoffs 10 of 12 years, won 11 games and went to 4 SBs.  They've been to the playoffs 3 of the past 4 seasons and won 2 games.

     

    Detroit since '88 has been to the playoffs a total of 9 times and had a single playoff win.  With the franchise's all time passing and receiving leaders playing together for 7 seasons they were 0-2 in playoffs.  Their all time "winningest" HC has a losing record.

     

    Nice try....


    The only thing that matters is super bowl wins, everything else is failure.

    Lions are a historic mess anyway, so...why not?  

     

    There should be at least one live lion in the building...


    Well we both have an active 52 year streak of no Super Bowls. We have been a historic mess nearly as much as they have.

    Yeah, what could go wrong?

     

    It could be the deadliest mascot.

     

    Least deadly? Cardinal? 


    Probably the Washington Football Team, their mascot is non existent lol

    Doesn't wade have like 3 preseason carries total? Regardless how those 3 carries went, that's all you've seen of him. And based on 3 carries you are confident he will replace Jones's special team value?

     

    Peak offseason right here.

     

    Not only does Wade have incredible carries in short limited action, he can catch the ball and run through 3 defenders for 30 yards+ . I’d much rather have that threat than someone playing special teams 5 plays out of a game with a punter that pins people with big hangtime. 

  7. You don’t beat the Chiefs or Tampa playing the special teams game. Special teams is very important, but is Taiwan truly a difference maker that we can’t plug in someone else to get competent production from with 5 plays a game? Even more relevant this year because Haack has increased hangtime and can pin people making a player like Taiwan even less important. You beat the Chiefs and Tampa by putting people on the field who is a threat to score anytime he has a hand on the ball.

    This is the kind of exaggeration that weighs against your credibility here. 

     

    Fact: we punted 41 times last year, which was the lowest in the league and considered a bit of an outlier.  But even that averages 2.6x per game, so 2-3 would be the more appropriate range.   The next  lowest teams were 44, 45, and 47 punts, so 3 punts per game would be a realistic "team that doesn't punt much" number.

     

    We also had a very high TB%, 7th in the league.  But with 101 kickoffs, that still means 30 kickoffs that weren't TBs, or not quite 2 kickoffs returned against us per game.

     

    So even with a low punt total and high TB %, that's still 5 plays per game that can have a significant impact on field position and the outcome of the game.

     


    So Taiwan 5 plays per game or Wade 5 plays per game. I view Taiwan as more replaceable on special teams than I do Wade possibly ripping off large chunks of yardage.
