    I'm super interested to see what McCarthy does with the Cowboys. He's a super solid coach and did really well with the Packers. I'm not to familiar with the Cowboys stats with Garrett, but I do know he wasn't exactly leading them to any championships any time soon. I'm a Packers fan but I'm really hoping McCarthy shows Green Bay it was a mistake to let him go.

    I've been a bit curious lately how would the NFL playoffs and Super Bowl look if they were to restructure things a bit. This year is so, so much more interesting now that the Patriots have been taken out of the mix by the Titans. And though the past few years weren't terribly boring, they were just a bit hard to get excited about.

    I'm not a Patriots hater or anything, but I'm also not a fan. Last year's Super Bowl just wasn't exciting to me at all with the Patriots playing. We had already seen it the past couple years and I knew that no matter what... Brady would somehow come out on top by the end of the game. And of course, that's exactly what happened.

    This new found playoffs excitement comes directly from them getting knocked out in the first round. So this has me thinking if the NFL could use some sort of restructure in how the playoffs work. I can't really think of a solid idea that doesn't take away chances to new players and deserving teams, though having the same team in the Super Bowl so often takes away my excitement for the entire tournament.

    Is anyone else more excited for this year's playoffs and Super Bowl specifically because the Pats are out?

    Maybe I am just a Patriots hater..

    I think that post game interviews, for a set amount of time (say, 15 mins) could be negotiated with the Players Union; with appropriate fines for non-participates.

    Definitely(!!) Not mandated by Owners/G.M's or Managers...

    I think it should 100% be up to the players if they do interviews after games. I don't think there should be any fines for non-participants. Good interviews should be rewarded, if only with a small bonus or something.

    Getting the first round bye week is a huge advantage. Not only does the team get to rest for the first game, but they also get to see how all the other teams are doing for the start of the playoffs. The Patriots have gotten the first round bye week the past few years, though they lost to Miami in their final regular season game causing them not get that luxury this year. Not that I think it will be the determining factor, though I see them getting knocked out of the playoffs this year with this playing a big part.

    I just don't trust anything Bill Belichick has to say anymore, especially when it comes to stuff like this. He's been proven to cheat, period. How can anyone take his word for it when he says he's not? I give him zero benefit of the doubt when it comes to questioning his intentions in this situation.

    This is the most relevant thing I could possibly hope for:

    The College Football Playoffs are just around the corner! So now is the time to cast your predictions for the top team in the game. It's no secret the LSU Tigers are probably the number one pick for champion this year, followed closely by the Clemson Tigers. Both teams have had a stellar year and are, in my opinion, the two teams that are safe bets for champion. We also have other teams like Ohio State and Oklahoma that are looking super solid.

    Ohio State, LSU and Clemson are leading their conferences with season records of 13-0, while Oklahoma is sitting at 12-1. The one loss from OU against Kansas State doesn't count them out for me. The game ended at 41/48 and didn't really show any serious flaws on their part.

    Out of these four teams, I'm gonna have to go with LSU. They had the toughest schedule this year, in my opinion. Coming out of it 13-0 and still looking strong is a good indication of what's to come. On the flip side, Clemson had a pretty relaxed schedule and didn't seem to face any really challenging teams. Both Ohio State and the Oklahoma had much more demanding seasons, so I'd give them a higher chance than Clemson. The Peach Bowl with LSU vs Oklahoma will tell us a lot when it comes to the rest of the playoffs. I predict one of those teams will be champion.

    I've never been the best at predicting tournament outcomes, so I'm curious what everyone's thoughts are on who the champion will be.

    Dana White has officially confirmed the fight will be Conor McGregor vs Cowboy Donald Cerrone.

    Looks like it's a WW fight, which is a bit interesting. Conor is a beast at 155, so this is kindof a bold choice for his first fight back. Though I think he has just about every tool in his belt that Cerrone struggles with. I see this fight going in McGregors favor heavily.

    The only racer of the four I'm counting out is Kyle Busch. He hasn't won a race since September. Of the other three I agree on Hamlin. He deserves to win his first title as well. Though Truex Jr. has become one of my favorite racers over the last few years so I will mostly be rooting for him.

    Truex is my next best bet as well. I'm definitely thinking Hamlin will take the win, but Truex has won the championship before so that gives him somewhat of a leg up over Hamlin.

    I don't know.. This doesn't seem to be something like the kind of misbehavings Ndamukong Suh used to do. If it were, I'd say the suspension makes sense and hopefully it'll knock some sense into him when he gets back on the field. But this takes it a step further.

    All these guys know they can rough eachother up on the field and not really worry too much about it thanks to all the pads and helmet. The moment a helmet comes off is the moment it should stop, and I'd think 99.9% of all the other players know that. To take a helmet and hit someone in their bare head with it is just too far. No matter how big you are, that can cause serious damage.

    I wonder if any kind of suspension will be enough. Not that I think this guy is trying to be a killer or anything, but it's just ridiculous to do that at all.

    The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Championship will be coming to a head this Sunday at Homestead Miami Speedway. The five main racers in the standings for this one are Denny Hamlin, Kevin Harvick, Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch and Joey Logano. Even though the last 5 champions took the win for this particular race, it doesn't necessarily matter who actually crosses the finish line first for a few of these guys, they just have to beat out their fellow top 3 racers. Logano is just too far behind to win the championship at this point, though he is still doing great this year so I'd keep him in the running.

    So who's going to take the championship spot? My bet is on Denny Hamlin. The guy has been absolutely killing it this year. Not only is he the top ranked racer on the track right now, but he also has two Homestead wins under his belt going into Sunday's race. He's got everything going for him right now. He just has to keep control for one more big one to get his very first championship spot.

    Hamlin is the only one of the top 4 racers to be going for his first win. Harvick, Busch and Truex will all be trying to win their second titles. Even though they'll all be bringing their own skill to the race, I just don't see the win going to anyone else. Truex hasn't exactly had the best history with the track. Harvick is a bit outnumbered by Joe-Gibbs, though it won't really matter if he can keep his distance. And no matter who's at fault, Busch just can't seem to produce a well oiled team. So again, I'm going with Hamlin all the way on this one. Not that he has a perfect system in place compared to everyone else, but I hope he can keep what he has together to pull out a win.
