The Browns always get a lot of flack, but the Lions are just as bad as them on the NFC side of things. The day the Browns and Lions meet in the Superbowl is the day I lick the taint of a poison dart frog and start tripping out like a drunken hobo possessed by the devil.

Just throwing out some history.

 

Since the 2002 realignment:

 

-The last team to receive a postseason birth was the Buffalo Bills.

 

-The team with the longest drought of making the postseason is the Cleveland Browns (2002).  The Bucs are next (2007), followed by the Jets (2010).  The Lions just made the postseason 3 years ago.

 

-As far as playoff wins, the Bengals have the longest streak without a playoff win, dating back to 1990.  The Lions are next (1991), followed by the Browns (1994), then the Bills (1995).

 

I guess you would say that the Lions could be considered the NFC Browns, but I think the AFC as a whole has been historically weaker than the NFC from 1990 to now.

I just heard that Detroit fired pretty much everybody on the coaching staff. As a Lions fan, I'm hoping they let Patricia go.

 
As a Lions fan, I have my doubts they'll do anything smart. 
 
How do you feel about the #3 pick? Tua is definitely going there IMO it just depends if Detroit takes him to replace Stafford or we trade out of it for a bunch of picks. 

I was just talking to a friend of mine (who is a Packers fan), and he said it would be wise to get Tua, and let him do what Aaron Rodgers did, and when he's ready, let Stafford go, and let Tua start, but honestly, I don't know.

I would love to see them get a DE or another CB to help out Slay.

Tua is way to fragile to waste on the #3 pick.

Yeah the AFC has been much weaker, that's why the Pats have won so much lol. I remember a time when the AFC was so inferior to the NFC that it was something like 13 straight superbowls before an AFC finally won the Superbowl vs an NFC team when the Broncos beat the Packers.

Not going to lie, I believed the hype on the Browns this year.  I hope they find a good coach that can help them win. Mayfield, Chubb, Hunt, OBJ, Landry. So much talent on that offense. They just need someone who can keep the egos and drama in check.

Baker Mayfield needs to spend less time filming those cheesy Progressive commercials, IMO.

Vikings

Ravens

Chiefs

Packers


idk why I thought Vikings had a chance. I guess I expected their run game to be better but 49ers looked good tonight.

Packers have the flu bug going through their locker room.  Fortunately, only four players are listed as questionable and they are backups.

Derek Henry is such a beast.

 

I'd kinda enjoy seeing the Titans and 49ers in the Super Bowl. Just to see that run game vs that defense.

Only remaining team I hope doesn't win is the 49ers....even though I said I'd enjoy the matchup.

 

Though I think it would be cool for the 100th season of the NFL to end with the Chiefs Vs Packers which were the 2 teams in the first Super Bowl.

Houston's coach really galaxy brained that game, him trying to finish them off then rethinking it and going for a field goal was the end of them.

I've been watching the Chiefs for almost 30 years. I've endured a LOT of playoff heartache in that time. Seeing them bounce back from such a dreadful start to dominating was truly special and something that we Arrowhead faithful will remember for a very, very long time. I sincerely hope that our "A Game" shows up against Tennessee this Sunday and that I can see them play in the Super Bowl for the first time in my life. I'm truly indifferent on what happens in the NFC, a song as my team makes it in.

Only remaining team I hope doesn't win is the 49ers....even though I said I'd enjoy the matchup.

That would be pretty nrat but sadly, that fact would be lost on most people and they'd only comment on the fact that those two teams' starting QBs have done commercials together for State Farm Insurance. It's already started without the SB finalists being determined.

Though my Packers lost I'm still happy, no Patriots in the SB this year!
