I myself can't help wondering as well if 1991 would have been their year had he been able to play the whole season (so a word to the wise, never mention the name Bryce Paup in the Delaware Valley out loud).  You could also add to the argument management letting Cris Carter go after 1989; while he had some personality issues at the time, he likely would have flourished and settled down had he been given time.  He plus Mike Quick, had he been able to play a full career, would have been a pretty lethal combination for Cunningham in his prime to throw to--and perhaps, to go back even further, had Marion Campbell been smart enough to draft Jerry Rice in 1985 when he had the chance, even more so.

The Miami Dolphins are the only team with nobody in next month's touch footb--I mean, Pro Bowl.

Neither do the Giants.

That's surprising, because I always thought the Pro Bowl worked the same way as the MLB All-Star Game, in which each team must have at least one representative on its respective conference's roster. And I don't know what the worst part about it is: that the game now takes place one week before the Super Bowl instead of after, or that the Super Bowl teams are exempt from it (BTW, when was that rule introduced?).

The Pro Bowl started being played the week before the Super Bowl in 2010.
Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.

Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff's jobs with the Falcons are safe. For at least another year. The team's 5-2 record since the bye week was a factor. This week's tilt against Tampa Bay is a Pick 'Em.

The early games provided shockers for some and others not, but the biggest upset in the early game comes when the Miami Dolphins stunned New England Patriots 27-24 and by doing so, Kansas City Chiefs clinches #2 in the AFC seed (and a first round bye) with a 31-21 win over Los Angeles Chargers.

In the other early games, Green Bay Packers get a first round bye with a 23-20 comeback win over the Detroit Lions, the New York Jets won 13-6 over the Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears defeated the Minnesota Vikings 21-19 (although too little too late playoff wise), Cincinnati Bengals take the Battle of Ohio 33-23 over the Cleveland Browns, New Orleans Saints easily handled the Carolina Panthers 42-10, and the Atlanta Falcons take an overtime win (on an interception TD return) over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 28-22.

Late games are going on now and the final game comes at night to close out the regular season.

Jameis Winston's pick-six was the seventh he's thrown this season, the most since 1950.

The Buccaneers need to move on from Jameis Winston. It doesn't matter how many yards or touchdowns you have if you continue to hurt your team with turnovers.

Meanwhile, the Titans and Eagles will take the final two playoff berths.

Sunday Night Football is HUGE for the 49ers. With a win the 49ers get the number 1 seed and the 1st round bye that comes with it. If they lose, they're a 5 seed and don't get the bye. The game is less important for the Seahawks since they can't get a 1st round bye either way.

Doesnít mean itís not important to Seattle. Itís the difference between playing at home in the playoffs versus having to travel to Philadelphia. Pretty sure thatís plenty of incentive. Theyíd love nothing more than to send the 49ers to Philadelphia.

What if I told you Jameis Winston went 30/30 this season?

It was so fitting that a pick-six put him at 30 interceptions.

Wouldn't doubt it. The story of his season.

And the NFC playoffs goes through the Bay Area. Green Bay at #2. And Seattle is off to Philly.
