    Looking forward to seeing fresh teams and younger "stars" in the AFC. Ravens-Bills especially looks like a great matchup, but I hope Cleveland can score with KC.

    I don't need to see another Brees/Brady/Rodgers hypefest. May as well be another Alabama-Clemson matchup.

    Sick of the old men in the nfc.

    Brady: "WTF? I've been in the NFC less than 10 months. I'm new."

    Seriously. Tampa hadn't won a playoff game in 18 years and hadn't even made it in 13.
    The Saints still have only been to one Super Bowl in 53 seasons, and that was 11 years ago
    Even with QBs that have been around forever, the teams still feel relatively fresh.

    The AAFC Colts and the current Colts are different teams. The AAFC version, which began as the Miami Seahawks, only played one NFL season (1950).

    It's been said, though, that the current Colts can be traced back to the Dayton Triangles.

    Coached by the great Isosceles McDougal.

    And all along I thought Tex Winter invented the Triangle offense.

    The NFL is probably hoping the Browns win.

    NFL Wild-Card Ratings Take Big Hit

    Ratings tanked for "Super" Wildcard weekend, despite 2 mill tuning on on Nick. With people stuck inside to a degree, you'd think ratings might have gone up. This is not a good sign for the league.

    That take seems a little obtuse. Everyone knows his offensive coordinator Rhombus Johnson was the brains in that organization.

    Wilt Chamberlain's house was built with triangular architecture.

    Not a good sign for the PGA. For Major League baseball. For the NBA. For the NHL. Am I forgetting any others?

    And here is something the NFL can say that the others cannot.
    Sunday's Browns-Steelers game was the most-watched prime-time show since last February's Super Bowl. No other sports or TV shows come close to generating those numbers.

    A shit game wildcard blowout had better ratings than any other event (sports or non sports) since last year's Super Bowl.
