The Jets are playing like a playoff team at the end of the season. They beat the rams last week and are well ahead of the Browns this week.

Exaggeration much. They (barely) beat a team with no receivers and half their offensive line missing.

The selection committee is corrupt as hell.

Chargers have one of the most attractive HC benches going for a long time and could have their pick of anyone out there. Good roster, plenty of cap room, plenty of draft picks and another 4 years of a budding superstar QB on a cheap contract.

They've asked Jason Garrett to interview...

The Bears were a total shambles last night. Some of their penalties were just unbelievable stupidity.

Some of the officiating over the weekend was shocking.

And thatís WITH the benefit of video replay.

Does anyone hold the officials accountable after the game?

Like do they have to justify their decisions?

Some of the decisions were just illogical

If anything the decisions had too much logic.

The NFL is attempting to remove circumstance and understanding from its rules. The problem is, much the same as the PL, the game becomes a more tedious and infuriating product when robots overrule the naked eye, and a less emotional and enjoyable spectacle when officials are not permitted to differentiate between aggressiveness and violence.

Shambles is a bit harsh. Made some really terrible errors, most notably the dropped TD pass that hit Wims between the numbers and the neutral zone infraction on 4th down. That was 11 points with those two mistakes alone. Excellent defense though even with several key starters missing. Just a shame they wasted that much money on Foles when they could/should have got a bit more quality for the offence with that wasted money.

Maybe harsh but they just seemed to be mentally weak. The time they took the time out to prepare for the saints 3rd and goal, then jumped at the line was unbelievable. Hitting out after a bit of goading too...

And yes the 4th down balls up too.

The Saints certainly weren't spectacular. They beat Tampa well twice in the regular season but I expect this to be a lot closer

The play calling really hurt them, although Mooney being out and then Miller getting himself ejected didn't help matters. Run, run, underneath throw, punt. Rinse and repeat.

He wasn't particularly impressive, but that loss ain't on Mitch.

A new quarterback for the bears in the draft?
