This might be a good time to mention that one of Robin's many enhancements/changes to Pinside over the past few years allows us to change how we voted in polls. This NFL thread even has an old poll in it.

I forgot what I voted for back then so I thought I would update my selection to how I currently feel. Turns out my vote back then is the same as it would be today. Hilton nut punch. I miss the back and forth between him and Centerflank.

I'm looking forward to seeing which 6 and 6 teams in the AFC (Dolphins, Colts, Titans, & Broncos) this coming Thur to Sun are going to play hard and win, and show that they want to grab the 2nd AFC Wildcard spot. Or are they all just gonna let the Chargers and Ravens be the wildcard teams.

Seems like Steelers will win their division, but it would not surprise me if the Ravens win the AFC North.
Baltimore is at 7 and 5, and the Steelers are at 7 - 4, & 1. Both teams should win at least 2 of their remaining 4 games.
On Sun Dec 9th, the Ravens play at K.C, with the Chiefs favored by 6-1/2 points.
The Steelers play at Oakland, with Steelers favored by 10-1/2 points.

I'm still pulling for the Chiefs, Chargers, and Dolphins to make the play-offs on the AFC side.
Not looking good for the Dolphins to get a wildcard spot though.
They can probably beat the Jags at home on Dec 23rd, but can they
also win 2 of 3 vs: the Patriots, @ Minn, -and- @ Buffalo out in the cold on Dec 30th?

The Colts don't have it easy on their upcoming last 4 games to grab a wildcard spot.
Probably need to win at least 3 of next 4 games: @ Houston, then vs Cowgirls (who have now won 4 in a row and have their confidence up), then at home vs the Giants, and finish up at the Titans who they smoked back in Nov.

Although my location should have given you a clue. I'm not one of those tools that like a team 2000 miles away over my own city's team where I was born and grew up.

#11260 4 days ago

I had mentioned things can change from week to week, and I believe Phillip Rivers now has as good a shot as anybody to be league MVP this year.

The old man has been playing amazingly and has still never missed a start in his entire career. And the Chargers are now winning games they might normally lose. I can only hope it continues.

Why? Are you one of the three charger fans out there? You really are a contrarian aren't you? They'll win a super bowl right after the clippers win an NBA title.

It would be funny if they did win a Super Bowl. Where would they have the parade? Noone would go to it, and it would just piss of all Angelinos that the roads were blocked off and caused more traffic than usual.

I grew up in So Cal and they are the only team that didn't come from somewhere else, or felt the need to leave the region for decades and then come back.

So yeah, I support the only true home team we have.

#11264 4 days ago

The Rams are our true home team. The Dodgers are our true home team. The Kings are our true home team. The Lakers are our true home team. The others are interlopers that need to GTFO. You sir, are a contrarian for contrarian's sake. I get it though. OC is Socals red headed stepchild.

That's a weird thing to say considering they just left San Diego and came to LA, where nobody seems to want them.

They are still a lot closer to San Diego than any fans from Cleveland are to their Rams once they moved to Los Angeles.

Or Anaheim. Or even St. Louis. Or back to Los Angeles again.

He and Odin and the homeless that they couldn't clear off the parade route. Haha I can actually picture them holding up their little cardboard signs saying "L.A. Loves the Chargers" while being accosted by people asking if they got any spare change.

Sure but you had Pat Haden, Vince Farragamo, and Jim Everett. And who was that other guy, Dieter Brock?

I'll take Fouts and Rivers over any of those guys.

Hey, we're talking about the Chargers here. Sure Pat Haden and Dieter Brock sucked, but the other guys showed flashes of greatness. They just had a shit owner. I never said I liked Rams ownership growing up. You surely know that the movie Major League was based on Rams ownership don't you?

To be fair, The LA Rams did have a Super Bowl winning QB at one time.

I can't say the same thing about Alex Spanos.

He was a gentleman with pure class. Sure he had some tough decisions to make, but don't they all?

Oh man, you just pissed off all the San Diego pinsiders with that statement. Well done. I'm kinda still laughing actually. Pretty funny.

#11281 4 days ago

Jim Everett was great QB and a real nice dude. I met him at a meat market in San Clemente. He was there with his son picking out steaks. He was so cool and had no problem shooting the shit with a complete stranger like myself. I shook his hand and it was huge. Easier to grip the ball that way for sure.

If the 49rs hadn't been so great when he was in the league, then maybe it could have happened.

Yep. He was a cool dude. Just don't call him Evert.
Yeah, there's a reason I hate the 49ers with a passion. Same reason I hate the Edmonton oilers. Jealousy.

The 49ers had Jerry Rice, the Rams had Ron Brown. Fastest guy on the planet. Always open deep. Always dropped the ball.

We have more in common than you might think.

Look, both our teams while in the So Cal area each made it to a Super Bowl and lost.

And they each won their perspective NFL and AFL championships before the merger.

And a least both teams seem to be in the running now. It would be awful hard to fill seats to pay for that new stadium if both were losers.

#11287 4 days ago

This just in,

When asked about Mike McCarthy firing Rodgers said,

"I was as shocked as many of you were. I hope I'm not the reason"

Almost as funny as Odin's Alex Spanos statement

Well there is one difference. The Rams actually had a chance against the Steelers in the Super Bowl. I think even the most die hard Chargers fan knew going in that the 49ers were going to stomp the chargers.

Are people starting to show up to chargers games?!

I mean, chargers fans, not visitors.

#11293 4 days ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

I don't know. I haven't been to one in years. Both stadiums are a little farther than I care to drive or pay whatever they are getting for tickets especially when every game is on TV now.

That was one good thing about the Rams in Anaheim. Close by and $10 seats. Or even the free club level seats my dad used to get.

I saw that epic overtime Marino vs. Everett game there in '86 or '87 I think and it didn't cost me a dime.

Heck, our Angels World Series tickets were only $60.

#11294 4 days ago

I did go to Jack Murphy stadium in San Diego a few times while they were there, but it was a long ass drive and a real nightmare getting in and out of the place especially on a Monday night.

Same as I really have no desire to drive to Los Angeles for anything anymore.

My friends and I saw a few games at the Murph. The first time we went there, none of us remembered which section we parked the car. Unlike other stadiums, the Murph and its parking lot looked the same from every angle. We walked around that stadium 3 times looking for that damn car and weren't able to find it until the whole place was completely empty a couple hours later.

Quoted from vicjw66:

Everett had good stats early on, but besides having to play Montana's 49rs twice a year, or three times if they both made the playoffs, the LA area had already gotten used to watching another hall of fame, one of the all time greats in Jim Plunkett playing in the same stadium the Rams had abandoned.

LA Coliseum is never good enough to keep an NFL team, but they keep coming back to it. Haha. All I can say is don't park your car out on the street there.

#11299 4 days ago

It's a shame this guy got sidetracked and his career was an epic fail, because he had real talent and ability.

Looks like the Seahawks will make the playoffs as a wildcard team.
3 of their last 4 reg season games are at home.
Two of those 4 games are against crappy NFC West teams, @ 49ers, and vs AZ Cardinals.

Important game Monday night Dec 10th, Vikings at Seattle, on ESPN. Both teams fighting to get into the play-offs.
Seahawks are favored by 3 to 3-1/2 points.

So, if the Seahawks are gonna get one of the NFC wildcard spots, then which other NFC team will get the 2nd wildcard spot?
In the hunt: Vikings (6-5-1), Redskins (6-6), Panthers (6-6), Eagles (6-6), T.B. Bucs (5-7), Packers (4-7-1)
Can't tell just yet, but by after the Mon Night Football game, we likely will know a couple more teams that are not gonna be a wildcard team.

Pretty sure we can scratch the Redskins off the list. Injuries are piling up. Seems too much to overcome.
The Giants are favored by 3-1/2 points playing at Wash this Sun. Ouch!!
Will QB Mark Sanchez be a hero on Sun for the Redskins, or will he do another butt fumble?

The Panthers are only favored by 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 points playing at Cleveland this Sun.
If the Panthers get beat by the Browns, then that should end the Panthers play-off hopes. Seems like the Panthers will beat the Browns.
