    And the first casualty is... Freddie Kitchens!

    He absolutely deserves it. I don’t know how good Mayfield actually is, but I think Kitchens is absolutely the one to blame. Having what is possibly the best wide receiver in the league and being unable to utilize him properly should be an unforgivable mistake.

    When he was with the Vikings, Bill Musgrave used an index card instead of a playcalling sheet and people joked it was because there was only two plays: "handoff to AP" and "throw interception".

    That's the vibe I get from Freddie Kitchen's play calling, except Freddie picked option B way more

    Looks like a good chance to go three for three on knocking out head coaches in the division, so that bodes well for the long term.

    WTF did they take an intentional delay of game penalty for?

    How do you come up with "intentional"?

    Because it showed they clearly weren't even trying to get the line.

    They also did that intentionally last game with the Cardinals to punt at fourth and 6, rather than going for it on fourth and one.

    I think that they just lost their <stuff> under the pressure of the moment.

    That's definitely what happened. They were bringing in Marshawn Lynch off the bench, so what I think was going on, is they couldn't get straight whether they were going to just hand it to him and pray for him to "beast mode" it in... which the 49ers had already proven they were having none of... or use Lynch as a decoy to open something up for Wilson.

    They picked up Lynch precisely for that EXACT situation, so there was no way he wasn't going to be on the field, but they just couldn't get it straight how they were going to use him. I'm thinking that anxiety over the final play in the Superbowl loss to the Pats also played a role in the indecision.

    Well, that's a wrap. Looking back at predictions from the start of the thread this is the only smart thing that I said.


    With that disclaimer to hide behind I managed to predict that three teams that won their divisions would come in dead last. That's more than I got right. I'm pretty sure this was my worst season ever as far as predictions go.

    Since I did the homer pick of the Bears winning the North, I'm sure the rest of my predictions were equally terrible.

    I got 5/8 right

    I also picked 3 wildcard teams (Chargers, Bears, Browns) that didn't even finish with winning records including two that will be picking the top 10 of the draft

    So, yeah, the Ravens and the 49ers are among the division winners that I picked to come in last.

    Yeah but you didn't go all-in with the exposition about it the way @caketastydelish did, so his were funnier. :)

    Gotta give Cake credit, he doesn't shy away from arguing his positions.

    Looks like I got 5/8 division winners, 0/4 wildcards. Biggest screwups : Nevermores, Packers, Vikings, Niners.

    Openly admitting this is probably jinxing it, but I will say it anyway:

    Spoiler :
    If the Seahawks lose in the playoffs or in the Super Bowl itself, I’m going back Malcolm X as my avatar and profile pic.
