Ok I will buy into the conspiracy theory since it now is all walks of our life. What is the conspiracy here? Why do the refs want S.F. to win? I will believe based on objective evidence. It was a great game and the face-masking penalty on N.O. did not help them at all and disputes any theory -

They could switch to how the NBA does it and just award the teams with the best records playoff spots rather than care about who wins which division.

Really, just have two conferences and get rid of the divisions.

I like the divisions as rivalries are built on geographic factors (mainly). That being said, no problem with having division winners make the playoffs. It's the home game factor that I would change.

So you support a division "winner" with a losing record making the playoffs and a team with a winning record not making the playoffs.

As a Seahawks fan it's tough to know who to root for in tomorrows Saints-Niners game.
Saints beat SF and the division title and 2nd seed overall for the Hawks becomes more likely and leaves them atop of the division regardless of win/lose Sunday night.

SF beats NO combined with a Seahawk win on Sunday night, lands them with the Number 1 seed overall..

I lean towards rooting for the Saints and securing the division first but kind of a win/win situation for the Hawks!!

Pretty sad that Seattle will finish with a better record than, oh, anyone in the NFC East... and finish 5th.

Yes. Those teams had opportunity to win their own division ultimately. or best the 5 seed. Just read article today that said NFL isn't going to change this for various reason. Its up on ESPN & Pro Football talk sites. sorry about your Saints. F SF!

Saints -niners game is awesome


the fix is in. NO getting screwed again by the refs
Not only by refs. They did their part too.

Like an idiot facemask! Saints continue to find creative ways to lose! It drives me NUTS! Stupid dump passes to Kamara... for a loss of way too many total yards. And... a facemask to hand SF the game.

Saints were pretty good... for a decent part of the first half. But I knew SF would eat up the secondary.

Overall, a great game to watch.

So let's say New Orleans finishes 15-1.

How could, say, Carolina, have an opportunity to win their division finishing 12-4 and still not make the playoffs with the Saints going 15-1 while Dallas "wins" their division at 3-13 (which could happen)? There is no opportunity to win if they don't win enough games yet a losing team is "rewarded"... and makes the playoffs.

It's a horrible setup that the NFL needs to change.

its all going to come down to week 17 in seattle vs sf. the number 1 seed will be in play. i'm fine with playing dallas or philly on the road.

Be Happy N.O. and Seattle are in and I will pull for both .... Someone not too long ago posted that the Cleveland Browns would make the AFC playoffs He has a chance of being correct. -

I thought the Saints would get rolled today. They did quite well.

But in the playoffs, that means you lose.

Green Bay and whoever in the NFC E won't get far. Seattle, SF, NO - depending on what team of their own shows up for their games... it seems to me like amongst those 3 teams one of them will win the Super Bowl.

And yet Baltimore is just on fire.

For a while I've been thinking SF v BAL for the SB.

The Patriots have no firepower. This off-season is going to get ugly when it comes to Brady's future.

Some exciting football this week, along with some controversial reffing. Niners vs Saints was awesome football. In the Pats/KC game, the refs missed some blatant penalties, lucky I'm not a Pats fan. Can't believe their fans would boo them off the field at halftime!
Rams looked really good beating Seattle tonight, Hawks defense couldn't stop the Rams offense.

it was pretty brutal (hawks). they seem to enjoy drama. like i said before, it will come down to week 17 vs sf. probably the last 2 minutes of the game or overtime. that's how they roll....

The refs have been awful. It's a league wide issue as well.

well I agree there but he is blasting them for a goofy trick play that almost every former player who doses commentary says the nfl was never going to through a flag on that

Sports fandom is so irrational to me.

I have teams that I root for, but not blindly, and I'm always honest about their flaws. Belichick is a devious bastard...he will bend the rules to win. This isn't a surprise, and the fans contorting themselves into pretzels pretending that this latest Bengals scandal is "nothing" make me laugh. OBVIOUSLY they were up to something shady.

The fact that Patriots are so broken down right now that they feel to need to try to gain a competitive advantage over the BENGALS is the most worrying part of this.

I don't see them beating BAL or KC in the playoffs this year.

No way. They could very well be one-and-done. They don't scare anyone.

Yep - and that is why the Pats are cheating again. I recommend the NFL League Office send everyone in their organization bibles and have them repent!

Them doing poorly probably works. I feel like Brady is gonna retire in either 3 years or the next time they win the Super Bowl. Having said that, if they won this year, I think that would be too soon. Before this season, I think he had 2 or 3 more left in him. If he won this year, I think he'd wanna keep playing then he might have to retire in a year he doesn't win, which I don't see happening. So I think this is a good year for them to underperform and now next year he'll come out fighting, and if he goes all the way, retire.

Still playing well, but not like the Patriots.

While it's true that his receivers and O-line aren't up to snuff, I think there's definitely been some age-related decline.

He's playing great for 42, but he's no longer elite or special. I honestly don't know how much better he would look if he had, say, Antonio Brown. Is his arm strength and accuracy still be there with an elite receiver? I'm not so sure anymore.

He's going to regret not hanging it up after last season. The signs were already there that he wasn't himself any longer. That 6th win would have been the PERFECT time to go out. Now he's going to be stuck managing the decline.
