After MN beat Buffalo, my Minnesotan sisters were talking about booking flights and tickets to the Superbowl.

It's like they haven't seen the movie before.

Back in the day, they didn't have the option to defer.  The rule only changed in 2008.  So you would always elect to take the ball because the team that lost the toss selects to start the second half.

Yes, they did. Marty Mornhinweg took the wind in 2002. It just made zero sense to defer.

Marty, being a Lion coach, made that choice for overtime.

Really hard to tell what has been worse for the last few decades - the coaches or the players.

Two of my good buddies here in Wisconsin are Lions fans, so I always have a soft spot in my heart for them - unless they are playing GB. But this year, I am rooting for the Lions to beat the Packers so Gutey can screw up another high pick.

Coming into today, they were #1 in the league in penalty differential, 17th in DVOA, a negative offense success rate relative to their defense success rate, recovery on an absurd 67% of fumbles, and out gained by their opponents on a per play basis.

That was all BEFORE today’s blasting.

Frauds.

Not being penalized is an important thing.

That’s the same system that ranks the Packers as a top 10 offense (and not even 10th).

Frauds in the sense of not as good as a team on pace to go 15-2? Sure. They’re a good football team though.

Lions +650 right this second to make playoffs. The rest of their schedule is EASY too. Huge finish coming up here.

That Lions clock management on the tying FG drive was something.

I think the lions offense is even better than it looks, because Goff is worse than it makes him look.

They are also an example of how you can't blame the Packers woes on a lack of talent on offense. The lions don't really have talent at the skill positions, but seem to have an offense that looks more efficient.

If Goff threw that last pass on target it was a TD.

Yup and there’s no way that the WR pulling up on that route was even an option given the coverage.

He also missed on an easy throw to Swift in the flat on the last drive that would have been good for 7 and out of bounds, to force a 3rd down. He’s the definition of just a guy.

One of the most intriguing story lines developing over the coming months: What if Jimmy Garoppolo leads the 49ers to the championship? With that defense, with an excellent offensive coach, and with all the weapons surrounding Garoppolo, it definitely could happen. I mean, he was in the SB just 3 years ago with a less-talented group around him.

Do you just let that championship-winning QB walk (he'll be an unrestricted free agent) and then hand everything over to Trey Lance, who has proven about as much as a high-level QB as the average Scooper has? Do you re-sign the championship-winning QB? Do you let him walk and bring in an old man who has expressed interest in playing in the area (Rodgers, Brady)? If you don't turn the team over to Lance, what do you do with Lance -- how much trade value would he have?

With the Panthers out of it, one team I'm rooting for the rest of this season will be the Niners -- partly because I like McCaffrey but mostly because I really want to see how the above scenario plays out.

The niners way is to dump the QB that got you there.

I don’t have the slightest idea what the Dolphins are doing. This is brutal decision having your backup QB come in, chuck unnecessary bombs, run no clock at all. Makes zero sense.

If I’m Houston, I’d take Anderson at 1, and then take a QB with the Browns pick (currently #9). They could package that pick to move back up too.

PS - I want the Bears to draft Anderson.

Yeah, none of the QBs seem like certain franchise QBs.  Lot can change between now and then.  Either way, Bears will have a lot of great options to make a pick or trade for extra picks

If the bears end up a top 3 pick and don't trade down, I think I'll be disappointed
