    Maybe because Herbert is new, and Rivers left LA to go to Indianapolis. I guess James and Hedman were unavailable

    I don't mind expanded playoffs. I'm okay with what they've done (though a best of 3 at the site of the best non-division winner throughout wild-card), but I'm okay with expanded playoffs. A runner on 2 is stupid. I'd prefer a home-run derby for a tiebreaker over that dumb advantage anyday!

    Nah....Cowboys / Dolphins Superbowl sounds right. It's your Third Place matchup! Dallas is in first place, AFC East isn't a runaway. Anything can happen in the postseason; all you have to do is make it!

    Here's one that caught me by surprise this morning (save for his age amongst other things): Mike "Doc" Emrick To Retire From Broadcasting

    Maybe there will be an asterisk if Tampa or L.A. wins; maybe not. I think if you're the former, you'd put an asterisk on most other champions given the lack of a salary cap / the inconsistency between each teams payroll. Tampa and LA probably could both care less. Similar to how one plays who's on your schedule, you can only play the season that's in front of you

    Possibly. Personally, the main reason it sucks is due to the fact that Lawrence would be in the AFC, which I feared after the Pats dominance (both in the AFC & in the NFC whenever possible), during the current Mahomes era, and well before Burrow & before Lamar progressed throughout the season. Though I did mention this while Brady was still with New England with a possibility of that for several more years. Despite that, I would've been surprised if he had ended up in the NFC. Whenever there's a decent QB on deck, there are more AFC teams that would aggressively punt until the following season in order to obtain that top pick. It would be interesting to know how Trevor will handle it, because he'd be better off pursuing a career outside of football than to wreck his life thanks to being a part of the Jets organization

    Oh I see. Makes sense; thank you

    Buck called two games on the same day not too long ago. I think the "magnitude" of the game had something to do with why Buck was on the call for it. Following the conclusion of it, I guess Buck would rather have called the NLCS. Though it makes me wonder why the NLCS didn't start last Sunday and the ALCS swapping to start on Monday! But I think Joe calls Bucs/Packers even if Thom Brenneman hadn't been kicked out. Fortunately, TPTB and/or whomever were smart enough to avoid a similar conflict with Nantz as it relates to the games scheduled to be played on Week 10
  9. On the original version of Card Sharks (the actual original version, not the classic revival from the 80s), during the bonus round (Money Cards), someone actually had four consecutive cards of the same value. I think it was a mid card, so the contestant survived. Cards off the same value counted against the player in the 70s, whereas in the 80s it was a push. No win, no loss, but no do-overs either. On that note, cards of the same value would be the Card Sharks equivalent of a "Lose A Turn" that WoF has. While you'd be bailed out (or robbed from a big win with an ace, deuce or King) in the end game, not so much in the main game. Unless McHale, Mullen, and company changed the rules, that would be the case in the current version. It sucks; though I don't think I would say "Another six" as opposed to "higher-lower" in the game. I've never seen anyone do it (definitely can't recall it). I actually asked a long time ago about that; not that anyone would do it on television, it isn't allowed I was told. I should be a re-do; that I agree. Maybe for the final run to determine a champion, but not before that

    Benched Brady, too? I just flipped to the game from the highlights on the NFL network. Can the Jets get anyone to coach this year? Maybe with a fresh start next year... Meh. I would have been more shocked if Green Bay kept Aaron in the game. Same with Tom. The New York Jets are going to be the franchise that results in an NFL lottery, I think. As much as I rip on winless teams, at least Cleveland & Detroit had respect for the game and had a shot on several occasions

    I though both Baltimore and Tennessee would've won by halftime. I guess they were both looking ahead to Pittsburgh. Meanwhile, I guess you'd have to bet on Tampa or Green Bay to best produce a rooting interest between one or the other (Brady vs Rodgers)

    As a result, I wouldn't bet on Manfred sending the Rays anything. It will be interesting to see the rooting percentage between the NLCS winner and the team "that saved the sport" but since Houston is out, people are happy but then several would go back to not watching Baseball knowing that Houston is gone. Maybe I didn't hear it or it didn't happen due to limited gatherings, but the champagne bottle from the 2004 Yankees has been popped

    Man, Cash may have been 24 hours from being fired, but fortunately Tampa survives!

    I heard that Joe Davis was calling Game 7 as well. No way Buck calls NFL football over a Game 7 unless said NFL game including massive stars. For example, Brady and Tampa hosting Rodgers and Green Bay. I think in a regular year, FOX and the NFL wouldn't put a game featuring big stars opposite a Game 7, unless it was close enough that Buck could call both. That, or CBS would get the nod. Davis is definitely good. Not sure how he'll do on Sunday; this is somewhat similar to Nantz and College Hoops on CBS, IMO

    And? There will be another Game 7! Wonder how Buck is feeling since Atlanta's inability to close out forces him to miss Bucs/Packers. Though I have no idea whether Joe can remotely call both Green Bay AND Tampa Bay before Game Seven with Atlanta & Los Angeles. Looks like Major League Baseball might be scripted too! I was rooting for a great series. I think painful might not be the best term. It was a bigger deal in 2004 due to the participants. It's still a big deal with Houston and Tampa, but the Rays are inferior as a small market to the Astros. Sure they might be the villains, but outside of some light hate toward Tampa, the period in the first half of the 2000s was a treat. Finally, the Rays are playing at a neutral site, so ripping on them beyond the end of doing so wouldn't be fair. Of course, it wouldn't be my fault if you lose a series despite losing a series clinching game that would've results in a series sweep with a victory
