Hmmmmmmm

- Browns - 1-31 over the last 2 years
- Bungles - 2nd straight losing season and no playoff wins in Lewis' 15 years
- Ravens - Missed playoffs 3 years straight and 4 of the last 5

Combined those three teams had a record of 10-36 this when not playing each other and all three are bringing back their coaches. :roll:

Works for me :D

The Ravens have spoken to former Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, trying to lure him back to Baltimore to be the defensive coordinator, per colleague @MikePrestonSun.

On Broncos radar for QB coach: Ben McAdoo and Ken Zampese. Vance Joseph and McAdoo were previous on SF staff together. Joseph and Zampese were with Bengals. McAdoo and Zampese both looking for OC jobs. Interim QB coach Klint Kubiak will stay on Broncos staff. #9sports https://twitter.com/MikeKlis/status/948286813000515584

#Giants requested permission earlier today to interview Broncos assistant coach Eric Studesville for HC job, per @MikeKlis.
Broncos have now fired Studesville, so NYG don't need permission.

Studesville has ties here. Plus: was interim HC in Denver when Josh McDaniels was fired. https://twitter.com/art_stapleton/statu ... 0861775872

And weirdly enough we've only swept the division THIS YEAR and 2008 in Tomlin's tenure

Don't be so sure. When's the last time the franchise had to hire a new coach without Dan Rooney's input?

Willing to bet that since Tomlin became HC no team has swept their division more than twice.

I believe the Pats have only done it three times since Brady was drafted and the AFCE is supposed by many to be a dumpster fire.

I think Manning Colts only did it three times.

So maybe it is not weird at all?

Well, for me, this playoff run is all about the legacy of Ben, Brown and Bell. The Killer B's finally all together and ready to put their collective hand around New England's throat and saying enough is enough.

But it isn't like that trio has to do it alone, you have Bryant, you have JuJu, you have Vance McDonald. Too many times over the last few seasons against NE we have had multiple pieces missing from the offense, either Bell was out, or Brown and Bryant were missing, or this season you had Brown leave early and Vance McDonald was out. I can't wait to see what this offense can do with EVERYBODY able to play against NE. With all of those players how does Belichick stop them? It was easy when there were injuries, when either Bell or Brown was out and you could double up on the last remaining big gun. But now? Now the Steelers should be so much better to crush NE. Try to take away Brown and JuJu and Bryant will make you pay. By some miracle if you take away that trio of WRs, then we should be able to kill NE with the short underneath routes to Bell and McDonald
.

I want to see this offense just refuse to play small ball, to instead say, hey, try and keep up Brady.

I see no reason why this team can't put over 40 points on New England's defense. And if the offense has Brady playing from behind, it lets the defense play loose and be opportunistic with turnovers.


Scunge.
That is absolutely how they should game plan the offense.
The type of game plan that gives Ben the keys and allows him to use all his weapons.
Find the open man. Incorporate the TE's.
Its what they did from Thursday night vs. Tennessee when they put up 40.............thru three quarters against the Pats.

And then Tomlin and Haley took the foot off the pedal.

So yes, what you describe is how we should play it.
All the weapons are there.
The OL should be 100%.
With Ben pretty healthy and a week of rest.
AB should be 80-90%.......with JuJu, Bryant, Bell, McDonald and James all contributing.

The only X=factor is.
Will the coaching staff think the same.
Or will they go back into playoff safe mode and look to hand the ball to Bell 35-38 times...........settle for 3's.
Turning many pass attempts into critical 3rd down pass plays.

The offense should be the reason we go get #7.
Give the defense a lead. Take some pressure off those guys.

Can't wait for Sunday the 14th.

Go back and look at the play calling in the 3rd Q...e1 just talks about the turtling in the 4th, which was obvious and not shocking, but in the 3rd Q as well, they played very conservative to say the least. Ben only threw a couple passes for a couple yards...nothing aggressive and down the field. It was ridiculous.

NE did open up 3rd Q with long drive that chewed up clock tho.

The only time to take the foot off the pedal is when there's a comfortable lead. What's comfortable with Pats? mmm, hard to tell, but if its snowing, run that ball and chew up the clock. We would all scream if a turnover occurred that put them back into quickly. If it is just cold, no crazy winds, just keep using the whole playbook until the clock is at 0.

Can't forget 28-3 come back with two two point conversions.

My point is, Ben destroyed them in the first half only to not be given the chance in the 2nd half.

Keep the pedal all the way through all 4 quarters and if they lead at the end ben should disconnect his microphone
