5th most wins in NFC.
0 NFCCG appearances
Now do the AFC
Hi, I came here to gloat about this meaningless stat.
Expand More Comments
Cowboys, Lions, Redskins- 0
I can't believe not a single team from the AFC made it onto this chart. NFC dominance is ridiculous! It's almost as if AFC teams had been excluded from the chart somehow!
Yeah, but only 1 team went 0-16.
Only 4 nfc title game appearances and 1 SB appearances fucking sucks with 2 HOF qbs.
Good information. From this it appears we can see that the teams that have been better have more wins over this time period. Can you expand the list to see what happens if we go back to say 1998?
Can I just enjoy the combine weekend? Please?
Right in the middle of course
I like this list
I like this.
Nice to see us up that high.
Doesn't feel like it after 7-9s
Now lets do superbowl wins
I want to kill myself. Hopefully I can finally get the balls to do it before another football season.
Well GB had back to back HOF QBs so if there is any justice they spend the next 30 years in the QB shithouse.
God wills it.
This makes me hate the fact they’ve only been to ONE Super Bowl during that stretch and only 4 conference title games since 2000
The only NFC teams not to make the Super Bowl in that stretch are the Cowboys, Vikings, Redskins, and Lions.
Such a great weapon.
Remember the Fournette vs McCaffrey arguments before they were drafted?
Oh how the turntables :(
Damn steven jackson went off in 06
This title is such ass. u made me think noones ever done it
4th closest. Charlie Garner had 962 rushing and 941 receiving yards in 2002 for Oakland, being 97 yards from scrimmage off (which I'm going to call the 2nd closest after Faulk's 1998 season).
This almost certainly looked like it was going to be David Johnson, then he was out for a year and then stuck in a dysfunctional offence with no O-Line and coaches who didn't know how to the utilize him properly. Hope he can get back to that level, as he seems a bit of an after thought now when it comes to top RB discussion.
McCaffrey played an insane amount of snaps last season, he was very effective but I don't know if that's sustainable, though if Cam is out for a portion of the season at least or his shoulder needs to be carefully managed, then he'll likely get a similar workload to compensate.
I would say my money's on Saquon to do it before anybody else, but the Giants might actually end up with a QB who throws downfield occasionally which will hurt his chances.
Faulk from 98-01 was amazing.
Can we get a shoutout for Roger Craig he did the 1k-1k in 34 less touches and scored 3 more TDs than Faulk.
EDIT: he also lead the league in receptions with 92 that year.
So you're saying this McCaffrey guy is pretty good huh?
Also worth not noting but not good enough to qualify for this list is LaDainian Tomlinson's 2003 season. 1,645 rushing yards + 100 receptions for 725 yards.
We're going to get him in on 117% of offensive snaps this year, he's gonna get there eeez.
I remember seeing mock drafts with New England taking him in the second round and just thinking to myself " these writers are fuckin stoned if they think CMC is dropping past pick 15 in round one ". The dude is any OC's wet dream
Roger Craig was underrated but it's ok since he was only over shadowed by the greatest wide receiver to ever play the game.
I'd take prime Marshal Faulk over Prime Christian McCaffrey ergo the kids a scrub.
I remember when he was thought to go mid-late first round early in the draft days I was stoked we might get him. Then he killed the combine and he jumped down to like ~10th and I knew there was no chance.
I thought we were going to get a more polished Danny Woodhead. Figured he would be going off for like 500+/500+ every year.
Seems like the 5th closest to me
I already miss Matt Forte. Watching him and Brandon Marshall was just fun.
Marshall Marshall Marshall
Charles Garner needed 104 total yards (56 reviving and 48 rushing) in 2002, McCaffrey needed 133 yards. So I’d say he was 4th.
Marshall Faulk had 5.46 yd/rush and 12.05 yd/catch while going over 1000 in both categories. Damn, he was special. And the rules didn't favor the offense as much back then.
Title doesn't make sense. Faulk and Craig already reached 1000/1000.
Wow. They should pay him like a number 1 running back and number 2 receiver. I bet he has bars too.
I honestly didn't realize Faulk was such a prolific reciever.
He reminds me of MJD
I’m surprised Ray Rice isn’t higher up on this list
I feel like Steven Jackson will be forgotten in the test of time but man he was a fucking monster when healthy. His 2006 season is nuts.
Man, watching Roger Craig and Ricky Waters was fun as fuck.
I knew Roger Craig was the first to do it, but I did not know only 1 other person has done it since. What a beast and one of the most underrated players ever.
Marshall Faulk was a fucking beast.....
I hope CMC stays healthy and gets to 1000/1000.
I did that with Kareem Hunt in Tecmo and I'm not sure how I feel about it.
This is one of the stupidest stats I've ever seen.
Man I thought he would bust so hard. I thought Fornette was a safer pick too. 🙄 Shows what I know. Still wouldn't take CMC in the top 5 though.
lol hes so overrated we are really making threads about having the THIRD closest? really? lmfao
mcaffrey is a white darren sproles
is this profootball reference? if so how do you get the nightmode feature?
Thank you cardinals
Offenses are often praised for staying "on schedule"-- getting enough yards on early downs to make conversions easier, even if a first down isn't made. I wanted to see which teams were the best at staying ahead of the chains in 2018, so I came up with a simple metric for what constitutes a successful play.
In most cases, in order to get a first down without punting, a team needs to gain 10yds over 3 downs. So if a team gained 3.34 yards on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd down, they would get a first down and continue the drive. A successful play on 1st and 10 is therefore any play gaining more than 3.34 yards. But on second and 8, a team needs to average 4 yds/play to get a first down, so a successful play in that situation is 4 yds or more, and so on. On 3rd or 4th down, a successful play is any one that achieves a first down (for simplicity, I'm ignoring cases like a team trailing by touchdown in the 4th quarter with a 3rd and 20 gaining 15 yards being considered "successful").
Chart shows all offensive plays from the 2018 regular season.
TLDR: successful if ( ydsGained >= (ydsToGo / max(4 - Down, 1))
Chart created in Matlab
Play-by-play data downloaded from here
Damn and that's with a gimped Cam Newton.
This also shows just how poorly our defense played all year.
All the New York teams are together
Man, I really wish we could've seen NO in the Super Bowl.
Tampa Bay take a bow
Giants the only bottom 6 team that didn't have a rookie QB or no QB (skins).
Cowboys smack dab in the middle, like always
Wow something positive about the Saints!
Seems about right
Works most of the time most of the time.
Define successful please
What is a successful play? One that gets a first down? One gets positive yards?
Why the fuck is Washington brown? The amount of time I spent looking at other red teams is too damn high.
It’s amazing the Texans were able to win the AFC South with that offense
How in the fuck are the Raiders that high up the list
This is awesome! Great analysis man.
One addition that would be super cool is if you made them stacked bars, showing pass vs run. Another cut that would be interesting is stacks by play distance - eg plays that went from the minimum to qualify up to 4, 4-9, 10+. I think both of these would be fascinating looks at how things are getting done or where teams really need to improve. These are already dope though. Thanks for making OC!
It's weird how close this is to a "Rank all 32 starting quarterbacks"
Honestly I’m really surprised we are that high
Surprised Oakland is as high as they are
My interpretation here is that Carolina and Atlanta were among the more talented teams in the league, but were under-coached. 3rd & 4th in the NFC respectively in Successful play % but both finished two games outside the NFC playoff picture.
As a NYG fan, I can confirm this graph is accurate.
Not a good look for the New Jersey/NY teams
Fucking Texans won the division with the least successful offense in the division. The AFC South makes less sense than a wide receiver tweet.
Not a good year for New York football
Kinda surprised with how high the Vikings were.
But it felt like every drive this year was for a field goal/touchdown or a 3-and-out. Not many drives where we we got a few firsts then had to punt.
Defense. Wins. Championships.
Wow this is surprising, our offense died after the dallas game.
It's like the rest of the AFC East just wants the Pats to keep winning everything... all 3 of them in the bottom quarter.
DAL. Lowest of the playoff teams. Still won a playoff game. Suck it
Who dat...we were robbed
This is really cool! Happy to see Indy up there though if you were to plot their game against KC they'd be about half of AZ. Also really shows just how dominant the Saints were. I dream of a situation where they were in the SB.
Can he still play QB tho? Asking for the Memphis Express
Kelvin Benjamin's brunch buddy
Can you imagine not seeing your large investment at quarterback for a few months and having him show up like that? That was $30 mil guaranteed.
He's just bulking
he's not fat he's big boned
He’s been hanging with Eddie Lacy
I think it's just a bad angle.
He got a Gucci Gut
Loooove that chicken from popeye's

See what doing lean does to you?
I have the body of an NFL Player 😎
He looks like an entirely different person. That’s crazy.
That is actually shocking. He looks like a completely different dude.
But how pliable was he?
Future AAF HOFer
Bulking season, that's all.
Hell yeah brother, cheers from Krispy Kreme.
Quite literally one of the biggest busts ever
C H O N K K
Can we remove posts like these? No clickbait please, that is obviously Kelvin Benjamin.
You're a GM... you bet everything on drafting your franchise QB, you select the most ripped prototype athlete you can find... break the bank to pay him, and he shows up with a grin on his face looking like that.
Right dog looks shocked at what left dog is doing
Drafted by the Lions and injured in training camp, he joined NASA and has the greatest official portrait ever taken .
Your move, Brady.
"What does your dad do for a living?"
"He used to play in the NFL, but now he's an astronaut"
You cant post this and not expect us talk about the dogs
Too bad he could never take off in the NFL

One step away from being a football playing king in space
Brady's ears perk up
He did a joint interview with Russell Wilson last year
One of the most impressive graduates of the University of Richmond!
This must've been one of those kids who, when asked what the want to be when they grow up, responded with "uh I'm gonna be a football player, an astronaut, a firefighter, etc". This dude actually did it
Also, his dogs really like him. That one's important, too.
did you listen to the moth radio hour?
Ricky Williams objects.
And that is how you match with everyone on tinder
No all he need to do is become a king and then he can be a “football playing king in space with a mustache.”
Lost his hearing while training for space. Took over two years to get it back fully. Crazy
With both being in the nfl and going to space being very unlikely for a given person. What are the chances someone else might do the same?
He was honored last weekend at a U of Richmond basketball game for this accomplishment.
Totally thought he had 2 women up on him in the thumbnail.
Josh Dobbs should be next right???
I see you too have the football trivia calendar.
He lives in my town! I finally saw him in Kroger a few weeks ago.
I got his autograph in one of my textbooks before. One of the coolest dudes I've met
Now he just needs to become a king and he’ll be the most prestigious human ever to live.
Hey Leland is from my hometown! He's such a cool dude.
This made me think....fun fact about myself
Ive done neither of these things.
He was the speaker at my college graduation. Neat dude.
If only he was a king
reads on Matt Patricia-sly
He went real deep for that pass.
I dunno, I’m pretty sure Ricky Williams thought he went there a few times.
I actually had to read his autobiography in school. It was a very interesting story
I don't know. I feel like Josh Gordon has made it high enough to reach space too.
I got to see him speak this past year! He's a cool dude.
...in the same day.
He didn’t really play in the NFL though, never got onto the field, the wiki said only made it to training camp and got hurt twice ending his NFL career with zero appearance.
Ah someone's watching the new Will Smith series, Strange Rock

That’s incredible and can’t believe someone like Darren Rovell doesn’t tweet this every year before the HOF inductions
This is fantastic
I live 20 minutes from Canton and I've never seen this. Amazing.
This. is. Sparta.
You should post to /r/MildlyInteresting.
These are right across from the HoF over highway i77.
Stuff like this is why I come to reddit, and also the porn.
This is awesome.
Use me as the "Hope I dont see any Cody Parkey comments" button
Valhalla of football.
Are they all like this? Because it looks like the others are regular electrical poles?
I can tell by the precision from whoever ran those wires never kicked for the Browns.
heeeey that’s pretty neat
Those are relatively new too, see those everyday on my morning commute and I love them. They’re the poles right next to the Hall of Fame with one on each side of the expressway, Pretty awesome.
lol that's actually pretty fuckin cool.
I've driven through Canton numerous times and never noticed this. Very neat!
Designed by POWER Engineers.
The only people not about football in that area are the Browns.
Oh man, if my girlfriend and I drove by she would laugh hysterically and talk mad shit.
She doesn't like football, but hey, I do love her.
How many people have tried to kick field goals through them and caused a power outage?
We get it, you football.
Letter from a former player trying to get into the HoF:
Dear David (Baker), I feel like I can call you David because you and me are so alike. I'd like to meet you one day, it would be great to have a talk. I know I can't throw the best but I think you'd be impressed with my speed. I love your hair, you run fast. Did you have a good relationship with your father? Me neither. These are all things we can talk about and more. I know you have no been getting my letters because I know you would write back if you did. I hope you write back this time, and we can become good friends. I am sure our relationship would be a real.......pow.....field goal!
We played in the hall of fame game last season. Surprised Parkey didn’t crash into one
Who remembers when a Patriots fan got electrocuted by a goalpost after the crowd carried it into the street and hit a power line?
No shit!! Lol
Parkey would still miss
Great to see another Lions player in Canton.
Looks like it’s just the one from where I’m sitting.
Those are 2 of them on either side of I 77. They span the highway and are next to the Pro football hall of fame
I drive by this every week
This can be seen from I 77 going though Canton right after the hall of fame bridge (if you are heading south) or just passed the hall of fame (heading north)
This was supposed to be a secret.
Imagine being Cody Parkey and having to live in Canton while you just slowly descend into madness as you drive down the highway.
"Mmmm I'd hit that"
I go to Kent State. I will make a field goal on one of these before I graduate
Quality offseason post
It's been like that forever
Canton actually spent their whole infrastructure budget on these poles.
It’s like the Hershey Kisses lamp posts in downtown Hershey PA!
How many are like that?
There is also a Mickey Mouse power pole located near Disney World.
They tried something similar in Chicago where they attempted to shape the bears at the zoo to look like Akiem Hicks, but they were just too small.
just asking for kids to throw balls through it.
Should probably keep Parkey far away from them.
Most places they have blackouts. Cleveland they have brownouts... in Canton they have Bearouts
That's tacky. But neat.
Let's hope none of their electricians are vikings fans
This chart is an excellent visual. Great job!
Would it be possible to do one that also explains the rotating schedule for locations of the games? This time of year seems to involve a lot of explaining home/away schedules to newer folks.
Why not put the north at the top?
Just an FYI for colour blind people the colours for NFC west and south are very similar
Rams and Saints will have played for 3 years straight. 4 times, possibly 5 with another playoff matchup. Quite the non-division NFC rivalry.
The Vikings road game are brutal next year: Bears, Packers, Lions, Giants, Cowboys, Chiefs, Chargers, Seahawks. 5 of the 8 are against playoff teams, and one of the other 3 teams has Aaron Rodgers at QB.
As an foreigner, following nfl since 2010, scheduling was one thing I was never able to understand completely. This diagram took care of it in like 30 secs, amazing.
We get 9 home games this season, that’s pretty nice
Also this could be the last time Eli plays Brady (if he’s still starting).
As a Patriots fan one takeaway is that this will be a pretty low travel mileage year for the Pats. Only Houston, KC, Dallas, and Miami are long flights away, and the KC and Dallas games are in Foxborough.
Geez...the jets, dolphins and bills all have to play the patriots twice again this year. oof. /s
Mahomes-Rodgers duel has to be Primetime. No other choice.
Thought there was a mistake, but the Falcons finished 2nd? I thought it was between them and the Bucs for last place, didn't realise the Panthers collapsed that badly.
Credit for the idea, /u/DatLe_ArtDirector and /u/Ahydell.
Color accessible version
Man it feels like the Falcons play the Seahawks and the Eagles every year.
I just see a Super Nintendo controller.
Holy shit I want to beat Green Bay so bad omg.
Cowboys and lions both play at home on thanksgiving
Cowboys home games in 2019 are NY Giants, Philadelphia, Washington, Green Bay, Minnesota, Buffalo, Miami, LA Rams
Lions home games in 2019 are Bears, Packers, Vikings, Cowboys, Giants, Buccaneers, Chiefs, Chargers
Who should their thanksgiving opponents be?
Wew lad - NFCN vs AFCW+NFCBeast and we are a 1 seed so Saints and Rams.
This gone be interesting...
The Seahawks will play against every other bird team in the league next year.
I can't believe people still don't understand the concept of a rotating schedule.
Really cool graphic!
Honestly looks like the Patriots have an easy schedule next year compared to other first place teams. This is not meant to be an attack on the Pats, I am just making an observation.
I expect them to go 5-1 in division, 3-1 against the AFC North, 1-1 against the Chiefs and Texans, and 4-0 against the NFC East. Possibly 13-3. Maybe 14-2. Probably 12-4. Either way, that's a top 2 seed.
Death, taxes, and the Patriots in the Tom Brady invitational.
Can someone explain the last line to me. Aren't there 3 different teams with the same rank "number" in the same conference. Do we randomly just play 2 of the 3?
As a Packers fan, I'm happy to see that we get at least 4 prime time games since the Packers play the NFCE this season.
Does anyone know how to generate mock schedules based on these rules? Or where I could go to find such schedules
Fun schedule for us. Some very tough games and not many that seem like outright walks. I love when we play the North, but buh gawd I don't want to lose to Aaron Rodgers.
Just thinking about this stuff gets me so pumped for the draft. I can't wait to see if we can address some areas of need. It'll be tough with a late pick and no first.
I finally fucking get the system! thank you so much for this
Seems like the Vikings ALWAYS play the Seahawks. It's kind of crazy at this point.
Since I don't wanna sit down and do all the math, anyone have a strength of schedule rating for each team based on record for the 2018 season?
I can't tell which NFC division i would want to play
It bothers me more than it should that the divisions aren't aligned with their places on a compass. Woulda been easy this year to do since the norths and easts are playing each other and the souths and wests.
For some reason I thought the Colts symbol was a massive snowball and I'm like "wtf???" and then saw the horseshoe and just laughed. Good times.
East to west again
CAROLINA AND TAMPA GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER... I DONT WANT TO PLAY TEAMS WHO ARE PLAYOFF CALIBER EVERY YEAR THAT RUIN MY DREAMS DAMNIT. SHIT BUNCH OF DICKHEADS.
Also we play the Chiefs yup instant loss there. Mahomes is just going to come put and never look when he passes. Well bois back to the drawing board AGAIN!?!?!
This will the first time, I believe, that the NFC teams that New England, the defending Super Bowl Champions, will play are all themselves former Super Bowl Champions.
The last time we played the NFC East in 2016 (the Stafford Meme Year) we beat the Eagles, Giants, and Redskins, and then lost to the Cowboys in the Zach Zenner MNF game.
I would gladly take the reverse if it means we could stop losing to the fucking Cowboys
So the Dolphins have the NFC East, AFC North, Colts and Chargers... Plus their division with the SB champs.
I can’t wait to go 2-14.
I really like this, but would it be possibl align the divisions as they would appear on a compass? I think that'd make it easier to locate the team you're interested in.
Oh look, Steelers vs pats for the 100th yr in a row
This will be the 9th time we've played the Panthers since 2012, 7 in the regular season and twice in the playoffs. That's just silly.
Oh god our schedule is going to be brutal
Really wish you used 4 different colors instead of 3.
Great chart. The scheduling has been so fucking awesome since 2002.
One thing that I think about in the shower sometimes, geographic realignment. I know there are shitposts galore, but you could swap 5 teams and have almost perfect divisions.
In the AFC, Dolphins to the south, Colts to the north, and Ravens to the east.
In the NFC swap the Cowboys and the Panthers.
Bam done. Chiefs are kinda lonely there but need to stay in the west.
We already have to play the Colts twice
Now we play the pats, saints, ravens, chiefs, and chargers.
AB to SF. SF @ PIT Week 1 Monday Night. Make it happen NFL.
If Russell and Lamar don't combine for 400+ yards on the ground, I'm going to be disappointed.
Let's see, carry the four...
6 of our games are against playoff teams. Should be fun
I really don't like the fact the Rams have to play the AFCN that looks like maybe the best division in football next year.
It being colorblind and looking at this, especially as a Saints fan. Great graphic though!!
damn. Tough schedule for the boys. We're at pats, at saints, at Chicago, at packers and home against the rams.
What determines what out-of-conference division each division plays (same color)? I.e. why is it NFCE vs AFCE, is that just a rotation?
The Dolphins have an absolutely brutal schedule. I would much rather have KC+Texans than Chargers+Colts.
I'm going to use this opportunity to throw out my idea that the inter-conference matchups should be against first place teams, second place teams etc.
Sure, there's some downsides I can think of. No Brady vs. Eli or Superbowl LII rematch. However, imagine all the great 1s vs. 1s we would have.
AFC: Patriots and Chiefs vs. Rams, Cowboys, Sains and Bears.
Yay the Colts don't have to go through the motions against the Pats this year. Not that they do much better against the Steelers though, but who knows what that team will look like next year.
I’m so fucking sick and tired of playing at New England. 2018, 2017, 2016 (@NE twice including playoffs). At least we had a home game against them in 2015.
But hey, guess what this year is... @ fucking New England.
So six games in five years, five of them away. And we’ve lost every one.
Interesting note. Our schedule feels like the playoffs again with Rams, Cowboys, Saints, Chargers, Chiefs, Eagles.
Saving to profile, thanks much
I bothers me that afc north and nfc north are not the same color
Seahawks playing all the bird bros this year!
There's also a method of determining Home and Away vs the non-division opponents. I remember it being goofy though and leading to things like NE v DEN (during Manning) being 2 years in a row in DEN, and then 2 years in a row in NE.
The nfc north being on the bottom of the nfc chart bothers me more than it should
chuckles I’m in danger
How do I know which games are home/away?
You missed your chance to put the AFCN on top, and AFCE on the right then you’d have all the AFC divisions matching their geographic location.
Sorry for the confusion but if there are 3 other teams with matching numbers in conference, which teams make up the 2 games? Is it random?
Browns have matching numbers with Bills, Titans and Broncos in the AFC - which 2 do they play? Just the ones outside their dotted line? If so that would be a good clarification.
Nice we get the easy AFC east
I don’t know about you guys, but I am amped up for next year’s games. Revenge game against Philly, Part 2 against Rams, Prove it games against NOLA and LAC, play against Khalil’s former team in London, Mitch & Mahomes first showdown for that draft class, Go, up against Godfather Vic w/ Denver.
Next year’s gona be hella fun
Texans will go 11-5 lol
Brought to you by Domino's
love the Bills schedule next year, they got a shot at the playoffs
Josh Allen vs Baker Mayfield will be fuckin lit
Jets not having to leave the Eastern time zone all season long is nice.
This next season will be even more fun than 2018 holy. We get to play the Steelers, Ravens & Lamar, Browns & Baker, Saints, Falcons, Russ vs Cam IX, Bruce Arians and his new Bucs, Eagles and Vikings. If that Viking game was Green Bay or Chicago it would pretty much be perfect. Seahawks are gonna be easily one of the most fun teams to watch next season.
Edit: we also play all 6 bird bros so we'll see who's the best next season undoubtedly
Next year is gonna be fucking awesome so many classic match ups and matches up from up ans comes
Yea I just recently learned that most have no idea how the schedule is created haha
Steelers are gonna fuck us as usual
Well the good news is the Texans have to play Baltimore and New England and the Colts get Pitt while we get the Bengals/Jets.
Fuck....the Cowboys play both Superbowl teams, the NFC Runner Up, and Rodgers?
So 2019 NFL season got cancelled right?
So happy we don’t have nearly as tough a schedule we did this past season
As a southern ontario resident (Canada), I am happy that the cowboys play Buffalo and Detroit, just gotta hope they are away games.
Looks like we have a lot of good games on our schedule next year.
This will be a well earned SB for the Bears, holy shit.
I completely forgot that ATL took 2nd in the NFC South
I hate that the cowboys have played 3 Florida teams in two years, ALL IN DALLAS
Could the Saints possibly play back to back road games from L.A. to Seattle?
Boy do we have a brutal schedule next year
That’s the same as the 2015 season for the Panthers I think.
Totally could've had the divisions in their true cardinal positions this year. Ie. Afc and nfc South at the bottom of the diamond.
Just an idea
Cowboys gonna have to put in work next year. Our schedule is rough.
We have the Patriots AND the Rams? Fuck.
I like this chart. Thanks.
So cowboys have to play rams and saints again?
We play the afc west, nfc south, Patriots and Ravens too. Next year is going to be hard.
I know everyone loves division rivalries but I think it'd be cool if you only played your own division once each and the other three games were against the matching rank teams from the other conference.
So if I'm reading this correctly (how hard can it be? heh...) the Eagles will play the Vikings, Bears, Falcons, and Patriots next year? Get the salt ready!
Browns are already 3-0.
I foresee a lot of East vs. East primetime matchups
I always hope these posts don't gain too much traction because I love all the, "tHe NfL rIgGeD tHe ScHeDuLe FoR "x"..." posts that pop up once the official finalized schedule drops
Pats playing 2 not so great divisions, redskins, giants, Bengals, Steelers look like teams that will miss the playoffs by a lot with 6 more from afc east thats a pretty easy scheudle
I was JUST standing next to Kelvin Benjamin as he rubbed Barbecue Sauce over his torso and joked about smelling good for the buffet when he got there...This business is insane. He and his family's lives changed that fast.
Ouweeeee finally Wentz vs the Pats
I personally like this one because it's a lot easier to fill out https://sites.google.com/site/printablesuperbowlpropbets/
I've seen a lot of people asking for these in the past few days and I had been looking for one myself. So I decided to make one and throw it up here in case anyone else is interested in using it.
Why does it say LII?
Where's "If Travis Scott proposes to Kylie Jenner during Halftime?"
there a way to check how many we got right, after the game?
I need Gronk to be MVP, because I bet $5 on him to win it at +10,000 before the Chargers game.
That is an incredibly reasonable and level headed response.
It must be annoying having people giving hot takes about your greatest mistakes that you probably are critical of yourself enough about.
Some of the takes I saw on social media since that story have been so needlessly rude.
Really polite way to say “fake news”
Good job Flash
Now I'm not sure if JG is calling the report about the Patriots paying for treatment false or just the return being false...or both. But let's wait until the facts are straight to see what is happening.
thats actually a really kind response tbh
He has deleted the comment since this was posted. Just thought I would leave that here
Eeeeeesh. That's a touch uncomfortable, but he handled it well.
Classy response 👌
Interesting. What's the value in making a false report like that for that reporter?
Journalism is fucking terrible nowadays.
Edit: hey guys you know what would be really helpful is a dozen people replying to this saying the exact same shit. Thanks
Calm cool and collective response!
Dang. I love this guy. As others have said he just has it all together it seems when he speaks etc. But its behind closed doors when he just can't get it together.
And I understand that. Wish him the best.
Journalism is atrocious these days.
Must be a pretty laid back rehab if dude is tweeting from there.
Whether or not he ever comes back to the Pats, I’ll always be a fan of Josh. I hope he’s doing well.
People got kinda upset at me suggesting the NFL may not want to or be able to pay out of pocket expenses for players.
I mean it makes sense, your employer doesn’t generally cover anything your insurance doesn’t. The insurance they have is awesome and they make millions of dollars, it’d seem strange to me for the organizations to pay for certain players out of pocket.
im 4.5 years sober and really hoping he can get his shit together. i watched a friends mom wail yesterday as my friends casket was put in the hearse for the final time. this shit is real
Flash’s comment is deleted.
well Dougkyed just lost all his credibility. Who is that anyways?
I think JG gonna be alright
“Criticism offered by your following” fuck that’s hard to come back from lol
Suck it doug
He says the report is false. He also said this time would be "different" with the Patriots. I am not trying to talk down about his struggles off field with mental health or addiction, but what Josh Gordon says doesn't hold much weight either. It's really nobodys business except his, but he keeps trying to comeback supposedly, which keeps his story in the news cycle. If he's done, he needs to say so for his own sake and officially retire.
Gotta appreciate the professionalism
Does he get a ring if the pats win?
A lot of respect gained for Josh Gordon after this very professional and level headed response.
All the dude did was smoke weed what is wrong with our society.
The NFL needs to omit bud fromIt’s drug tests. It’s bullshit and everyone knows it. It’s friggin pot, man.
I'm sure the Patriots are being plenty supportive though, and would gladly take him back if he can return, major props to their organization. And Gordon for being so chill about the rumors, he could have been much more upset, and for good reason.
Would the league honestly let him back in again??? How many "second" chances does this guy get?
What drugs is this guy hooked on? I assume it cant be just weed, is he doing coke or heroin or some shit? I cant imagine anyone who cant give up weed for 5 months of hte year for 20 million dollars but i am sure they exist.
I love Josh Gordon. He seems like a good dude with some mental health issues and I really hope he gets the treatments he needs.
But, do people really believe that tweets like this aren't from some sort of PR firm?
How to get rekt 101
Can josh gordon just retire so we can stop hearing reports like these?
That's a classy move by the pats right there
Why doesn't he just release a statement then?
This should go on trashy!
Is he saying that the Patriots' paying for his rehab is false? Or that a return to the team in the future being possible is false? Or both? Just seems strange that this story would come out and now Gordon feels the need to deny it (not that he's lying about it)
For those who didn't watch the game, he did back up before the ball was snapped. IF ONLY HE COULD HAVE DONE THAT WHEN IT MATTERED.
FORD WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU BRO . YOU MADE ME AND MY WHOLE FAMILY CRY BECAUSE OF THIS AGAINST THE PATRIOTS . Please for the love of all things holy , get your shiz together .
Good to see he has a sense of humor.
Why is that OL running the Flying V.
