The Patriots Have Just Signed The Pittsburgh Steelers Playbook

The Patriots have gone to great lengths to steal playbooks in the past but signing a longtime Steeler and more importantly a pissed off former Steeler to give them the playbook thats unprecedented even for New England.

James Harrison has been with the Steelers for a total of 12 seasons through 3 different stints and for about 3 or 4 years during his most recent one.  Harrison has made his displeasure with his playing time or lack there off very public this year having only appeared in 5 of 14 possible games this year. Harrison even said that if he knew that Pittsburgh wasn’t gonna play him that much this season he would’ve never resigned with Pittsburgh. His anger with the team and its coaching staff is most likely what lead to his ultimate release which may have been the biggest mistake the Steelers have made in a long time. Now James Harrison is on the streets with all that anger and all that information which always seems to be where Bill Belichick comes into the story

As if the Patriots winning the Super Bowl wasn’t already a wrap it is 1000% confirmed now nobody has a chance the only hope is that Minnesota makes it and gets a favorable home crowd but even then the Patriots have won 15 of their last 16 road games so that won’t matter. An angry James Harrison I’m sure will ready and willing to share some secrets about his old team with his new coach and best friend Bill Belichick. Now here’s where the part about only playing in 5 games comes into play because now not only is he angry, motivated, and under Belichick’s system but he’s fresh and has a dirty history on top of all that god help the NFL this January.

Why The NFL Needs To Finally Pull The Plug On Thursday Night Football

Look NFL you tried you did everything you could to make TNF work but it’s just not working. The players hate it nobody watches it logic dictates it must go right? While most logically thinking people would agree for some reason the NFL is adamant about it staying.

First of all and I cannot stress this enough the players hate it they hate it with a passion. Realistically why wouldn’t they hate it they have to cram a weeks worth of game prep, conditioning, practice, and everything else that goes into a football game in just 3 days. That puts players at a bigger risk for injury just look at the Saints the other week they were a walking hospital bed and Drew Brees and Kenny Vaccaro both said it was 100% because of TNF. Even Doug Baldwin said “It should be illegal” after many Seahawks got hurt on a Thursday.

Now the NFL wouldn’t be the NFL if they didn’t neglect player safety just to make a quick buck. However Thursday Night Football ratings go down and down with each week. Now ratings have been plummeting all year whether its boycotters or sloppy play TNF has taken the biggest hit. It doesn’t help that the games are usually shit and realistically why wouldn’t they be. Short prep time, below average teams, angry players who are getting hurt all the time, and empty arenas seems like a recipe for some all time classics.

Now to the NFL’s credit they’ve tried and tried to make TNF work. They expanded the ways you can watch from just NFL Network which not everyone gets to playing on CBS, NBC, even Twitter. The matchups have been getting better this year with some the NFL’s best teams and rivals meeting on Thursday Night. Then again for every Falcons-Saints game there’s a Dolphins-Ravens head scratcher. They even broke out the Color Rush concept which on paper was a great but has been executed poorly. There are some cool Color Rush jerseys but there are some hideous ones too(just look at the jags ones).

All logic points to Thursday Night Football being a bad idea that just cannot work. Now the NFL’s catch rules and concussion protocol clearly show that they do not like things that make sense. Anyone with eyes can see that TNF is a failure and the NFL just needs to put it out of its misery while it still has its dignity. Now we all know TNF is here to stay because the NFL just doesn’t like us or its players. Now if the NFL was smart(which they’re not) than they would finally end this horrible experiment.

Philadelphia Eagles Contenders Or Pretenders

    As of right now the Philadelphia Eagles have the best record in the NFL through 9 games. That’s right the Philadelphia Eagles a team that wasn’t wildly considered a playoff team holds the leagues best record. The Eagles only got better by adding Jay Ajayi for a fourth round draft pick. Now they’ve made it this far so now we must ask ourselves are the Eagles contenders or pretenders.

The Eagles appear to be unstoppable right now as they have won 7 straight games with Carson Wentz looking like an MVP candidate. Their only blemish on the year is a 7 point loss in Kansas City all the way back in week 2. They have a point differential of +104 which is second behind only the Los Angles Rams. The Eagles put up 51 points on the Denver defense last week they scored so many points that the stadium ran out of fireworks for their celebrations. While their offense has been great this year their defense has snagged 11 interceptions which is 3rd in the league.

The Eagles can throw the ball, they can run the ball, and they can take the ball away that certainly seems like a recipe for January success. So to answer my own question I do think the Eagles are contenders and I do think that they could go to the Super Bowl this year. Now that being said can they beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl that is an entirely different question. The Eagles certainly have a shot the Pats aren’t unbeatable but there certainly close to it. The Eagles high octane offense vs Tom Brady is certainly a matchup I’m looking forward to watching. Although imagine if somehow Pittsburgh snuck in and Pittsburgh vs Philadelphia in the Super Bowl it won’t happen but hey a man can dream.
