    McVay has pretty much ended Fisher's coaching career.

    After that I believe it's the Saints and the Eagles or vice versa. Just a crazy stretch of games but so far they've looked tremendous.

    McVay all but has the coach of the year locked up.

    Ireland agrees with you about the difference the Coach has made.

    I think it's pretty incredible how awful a coach Fisher was. This team is slightly different than the one Fisher inherited, but not different enough to make this much change happen. He was a horrible excuse for a coach.

    Wade Phillips is a helluva defensive coordinator... I like Kupp. Precise routes, sure hands. Team needs a deep threat and I am not seeing that from Watkins thus far.

    Bring back the blue with yellow unis! The ones now look like something out of the 1960's.

    I like the blue/white honestly. I just wish they were all coordinated. For some reason the NFL mandated that the uniforms not be fully changed until 2019 or something.

    I like Watkins, but he seems like a round peg in a square hole right now. Hell, they leaned more on a 4th round rookie yesterday in place of Woods instead of just feeding Sammy. I'm not sure what his value is going forward.

    I don't know that's a good question. You guys haven't really changed the colors so the colors will probably stay the same. Jersey changes would be a little tricky probably.

    We came so close... Story of this season...

    B.S. call late helped give the Eagles more time and our offense less opportunity but still the offense stalled when we needed it. Tough one to swallow.

    Tough break for Wentz. Have not seen the game yet but recorded it. Probably won't because we lost.

    So nasty injury aside for Carson ..... did the Rams make the best pick between them with Goff? They're both doing so well up to this point. Carson bigger and stronger arm (?) and can run. Or used to be able to do that. Don't even know what kind of play he got hurt on.

    Too early to call but I think Wentz is better today. The guy was great yesterday.

    It is what they call a statement win... An arrival... Whatever you want to call it.

    Off the top of me head...

    Seattle - not as dominant. No running game...no O-Line either.
    Minnesota - not convinced Keenum will maintain his magic in the playoffs.
    Philadelphia - Foles is competent but it is a steep drop from Wentz
    Atlanta - not convinced of their defense. Don't trust Sark too.

    The three dangerous teams now?

    Carolina - Newton getting his 2015-2016 mojo back or at least most of it.
    New Orleans - Rams did beat them BUT Brees is Brees, y'all.
    Dallas - I like their bend but not break defense plus the return of Elliot would be a huge key.

    Assuming the Cowboys don’t make the playoffs which is likely the case unfortunately barring a lot of help, but I’ll definitely be rooting for the Rams to take down the Eagles in the playoffs.

    Great, young team. Love McVay. Goff’s resurgence is a great story. Gurley is a monster. This Rams team is starting to resemble those great teams with Warner and Faulk. My only question is if they’re experienced enough, but they’ve been awfully impressive this season.

    Too bad we lost the kicker .... he was MONEY. Hope the new dude they picked up is OK.
