It's crazy, now he's at the Buccaneers I am appreciating TB more. Still hate the Patriots though.

Me too. I loathe the Patriots but am enjoying Brady in Tampa a lot. I like that all season he has been sticking in to Bill and Kraft who believe they walk on water. That whole org is insufferable and now they are just like every other team. Below .500 and looking for a QB.

It is pretty cool what they are doing in their 40s. They got the prime time slot over Mahomes.

 

No, Mahomes and the KC Chiefs, as the #1 seed, get to choose their slot and chose the afternoon slot in cold KC weather.

I don't see how Colts fans still hate the Patriots so much. After the 03 and 04 losses, the Colts beat them multiple times, and got the ultimate revenge and redemption in the 06 AFCCG. 

 

The Colts never got revenge against the Chargers or Steelers. 

 

And I get the Patriots vs Colts in the Luck era, but the Colts were not even competitive in those games. It was JV vs varsity. 

 

The hate feels contrived now.

Teams do not choose their slot.  The NFL decides based on ratings.

In the past, I thought they did. I remember Patriots choosing Saturday night a lot of times and the Broncos choosing the later afternoon slot for their divisional round games as the #1 seed. I am certain about that. I will try to find more information if I can. It could be different this year though.

Yeah. I have not heard that but would be interested to know if the teams can choose.

I’m a Ravens fan and still hate the Patriots. We beat them twice up there in the playoffs , but I will never forget the shenanigans and cheating. They crapped all over the Ravens and Colt organizations when they deflated footballs , to deflect blame from themselves. 
If some of you Colt fans want to forgive them, god bless you. Not me. They are right there with the Yankees, Red Sox, Steelers , and Duke Basketball !

Great post, I still can't stand them and I also hate the Steelers who the REFS seem to cheat for them. See SB 40 for example, and when they play us there are always 3 or 4 bogus calls that go against us. The 1995 AFC Title Game is another example of that and 3 weeks ago is another, it is endless.

Still looking. One thing I know for sure is in years past, they did the Sunday divisional round games at 1 pm/4:30 pm ET combo. For TV sakes, they have moved it to 3:00 pm/6:30 pm ET slots.

 

Look at this difference between 2019/2020 playoffs and 2018/2019 playoffs

You are right. They are the Duke basketball of the NFL for getting breaks. My animosity with the Steelers goes beyond my Ravens days, back to the losses of the Baltimore Colts in the 1975 and 1976 playoffs.

Yeah everytime you play the Pats - well when they had Brady, Steelers and Packers regardless you are playing the REFS to. It is obvious to the fan that has watched for 40 or 50 years.

We all saw it. The bogus roughing the passer when Brady flopped, or the late pass interference penalty flag when he whined.

Some of the calls we had go against us 3 weeks ago at Pitt and non-calls were comical. Same when we played GB this year. Pats used to get away with holding a lot on offense and defense.

Yeah I still don't believe that was an INT but Lamar took over in the 2nd half. We couldn't do much on offense in the 2nd half. You guys probably still would've won without that INT.

Who knows. Sometimes games can change momentum. I don’t know, I just remember more bad calls and shenanigans involving the Steelers and Patriots. I will never forget Tomlin trying to blatantly trip Jacoby Jones on a punt return and getting fined 100 K !

Yeah, that had no place in the NFL. Mike Tomlin should have been suspended a few games for that, IMO. That would have been the right thing. Now, they replay it like it was some "blooper" to be entertaining.

The momentum changer was when JT fumbled and I love JT but that was a killer IMO. After that it was all Ravens. JT in the 2nd half of the season looked really good. I see him as a 20 per carry a game guy.

Honestly, the Patriots are amazing to me now. Their run is unprecedented.

Hate the Patriots and hate TB. Too many years of Peyton vs manning for me to like Thomas lol. And cheering against the pats just got mundane this year with how horrible they were. So... Go saints!

It was not mundane for me. I loved watching them crater and Bill turning into an excuse machine. So much for Do Your Job this season.

I know for the conference champ games they alternate every year between the 3 and 6:30 slots. I believe the AFC gets the 6:30 this year as the Packers/Niners had it last year.  

 

I would imagine that if the Chiefs did get to choose this year for the divisional round, they would have picked the Saturday slot to give the Browns one less day to prepare/rest.

    • If they're looking at the absolute "must re-sign" players coming up ( Leonard, Smith, Q), and also want to make a splash in FA, I can see a restructure for a player they expect to be here for a while, such as Kelly. The cap room could get awfully small in a hurry under the above scenario. A little breathing room is a good thing.   
    • No...but I would have done that move for the two QBs drafted after him. We would just have to assume that Ballard is not Ryan Pace and that he wouldn't draft Tribuskaye.   But of course it's a gamble. Addressing QB is a challenge nearly all teams must face. And it's what separates teams. That's what made KC a perennial playoff team that would lose on WC weekend into the #1 team in the NFL. Or takes a perennial 8-8 team like BUF and makes them into a team that can compete with a team like KC.    Trading (with conditions) for a QB coming off a terrible season is a gamble as well. It's just less of a gamble because Reich knows Wentz and because of a perceived lower cost...and because they can bail pretty quickly. Which is exactly why it's a half-measure. They know they aren't committing to Wentz any further than the first 75% of next season. I can understand the appeal of that...but with a position like QB...I am not convinced it will get them where they want to go.   But we will just have to see it play out.        
    • I wouldn't trade Leonard or Nelson for TWO Godwins. 
    • Even if Brady was a first rounder,   the bucs didn't spend a first on him.   He was a free agent.   Manning went to 2 super bowls in denver.
    • Wentz is the first real dart throw...but it's still somewhat of a half-measure. And this has really been the theme since Luck got retired.   First, they tried to turn the backup QB into a franchise QB by giving him money and trying to speak it into existence.   Second, they signed a very old vet QB with a very good track record that had experience with Reich to a low-risk one-year deal to make a push.   Third, they finally traded some real draft capital for a younger post-hype QB (already under contract) who had fallen out of favor with his former team. But they even hedged this move by making one of those picks conditional...because even they know this move is a risky move that they aren't 100% confident in.   But it's not surprising...because these moves sort of follow a theme or a philosophical approach to the QB position. And maybe it's just coincidental...but there are a lot of parallels between the moves made by Ballard's previous org.'s and the moves made by the Colts.    CHI (2001-2012) Drafted (1) QB in the 1st round and that was Rex Grossman at #22 in 2003. CHI had the #4 pick that year and traded back for #13 and #22. Not only did they trade back to #13, they didn't even take a QB with that pick. (That seems like a very Ballard type of move if you ask me.) The only other QB drafted in the top 4 rounds during his entire tenure was Kyle Orton, in the 4th round of 2005 draft.  After the initial options don't work, and because CHI is stuck in QB purgatory by being no worse than 7-9, CHI makes a big trade and sends Orton and picks to DEN for Jay Cutler, a former 1st round pick QB thought to have huge upside.  But Cutler also came with some potential locker room issues and had requested a trade after his relationship with their HC became irreconcilable. (Sounds very familiar). Cutler has some success in CHI, but only wins (1) playoff game in 8 years at QB.  KC (2013 - 2017) Ballard arrives in KC after the 2013 draft. In March, KC had traded (2) 2nd round picks for Alex Smith, with one of those picks being conditional upon playing time. (This is very similar to the type of offer that Ballard gave to PHI.) Smith was a former #1 overall pick QB who had ups and down...and had just been replaced by a backup QB...coincidentally also a 2nd round pick. He had reportedly been working back channels to get out of SF. (Sounds familiar again.) Through Reid's coaching, Smith is actually a pretty damn good QB, but KC only wins (1) playoff game in five seasons (the same number as Cutler in CHI). During this time, KC doesn't draft a QB before the 5th round until 2017 when Ballard is already in Indy. At that point, they make an aggressive trade up in the NFL draft for Mahomes and let Smith mentor him for a season before trading Smith to WAS. So based on this timeline, the Colts are currently several years away from actually drafting a legit QB and thus competing for SBs. I am kidding of course. But there are a lot of parallels here.
