    Well I don't hate the Chiefs, however they need to get rid of Andy Reid as when it comes to playoffs he can't close the deal. Kinda like Barry Bonds of the S.F Giants, great in regular season, but sucks in the playoffs. What's KC 1 win in 9 playoffs in the last couple decades. Andy won't get this team where they wanna be, just look at the way they were rolled in their last playoff game and they were at HOME.

    Well anyway I look forward to next season for the Raiders. My prediction is the Raiders will grab a wild card at least. I sure hope the Broncos end up at the bottom of the division next season. Sayonara

    The Raiders already blew it... Gruden is making more guaranteed money than anyone on their team! They overpaid for a guy who took Dungy's bucs for a spin as his only sb win. Don't get me wrong, I really like the Grudens, just talking dollars and sense. :)

    Have to agree about over paying for a guy who has talked a good game for the last ten years at ESPN, but has coached squat. I understand that's how much it cost to get him away from his dream gig, but ffs $100,000,000.00. :rolleyes:

    If the Jags would keep their mouth shut, they would have a punchers chance this weekend against the pats. Keeping on poking the bear is not a good idea.

    Well I think it was worth the money to get Jon Gruden for a couple reasons. One, stability. Two, he's a great quarterback guru. Three, marketing, "Chucky" will be putting people in those seats at Oakland Colliseum even tho some fans are PO'd about the move to Las Vegas. Also he will help with season ticket sales and marketing for their new stadium in Las Vegas. I'm really excited and have bought two new Raiders long sleeve shirts, a new Raiders baseball cap, and a new coffe mug with Raiders Logo with "Chucky" instead of the pirate. GO RAIDERS!

    That's a great question, Tom the "Master Gunfighter" is the very best at making things happen in the fourth quarter, however those Jaguars are showing some real grit and hunger. Will Tom score...yes he will Touchdown with 8:34 left in the game.

    Probably the best match-up that could of came out of today.

    After last weeks emotional win for the Vikings, I kinda felt it may be hard for them to "get up" for the game against the Eagles. My Steelers being out of contention, I will throw my weight behind the other Pennsylvania powerhouse, Go Iggles!

    Well I will be rooting for the underdog Eagles and on this one and I believe they can pull it off. This will be the first time I will be rooting against local guy(San Mateo, Ca.) Tom Brady in a Super Bowl. Wow what a match-up this will be and should be a really good and close game. My predicted final score: Eagles 31 Patriots 28. Sayonara.

    I think if the Eagles can keep that underdog mindset they may have a chance to avenge their Super Bowl 39 loss.

    Wasn't that against the Raiders? One thing's for sure, Philly ain't no "City Of Brotherly Love", least not when it comes to Eagles fans. Heck they may burn the city down win or lose.

    Anyone know how to stream the Super Bowl free with commercials this year?

    I found this article saying NBC Sports, but it doesn't say whether they will have the commercials too:
    https://www.rokuki.com/how-to-stream-the-2018-superbowl-free-on-your-roku/

    As a cord cutter I thought I was all set last year when I used Sling (I believe) to stream the SB, only to find the commercials were cut out. Fucking pissed off the family members that are not that into football. I was pissed too, but a few bowls of GSC and some buffalo wings with lots of blue cheese dressing helped that.

    After a very, quick, simple, visit to NBCSports.com--"If you don’t have a TV, you can go online: NBC is offering a free, 11-hour livestream of its Super Bowl coverage, including all the ads, the halftime show, and the pre- and post-game shows, regardless of whether you’re a cable subscriber."

    My dad is the same way. He loves football but the pro's have not gotten a minute of his time this year. Me? I might have gone the same way except, I like a different kind of football.
