Is John Mara an evil genius? Did he plan the whole scenario out in advance? Eli's performance wasn't great and the time was coming that the Giants would need to move on. As the team's season spiraled toward the bottom of the standings, the Giants were moving up the 2018 draft board in what is widely reported to be a quarterback-rich draft. McAdoo was a dead coach walking, anyway. Maybe Mara set the soon-to-be-fired coach up to be the trigger man taking the unpopular step of benching Eli, thus allowing Mara to re-ingratiate himself to the fans by firing the coach that dared to bench their favored player. :evil:

Week 14

Thursday Night Football 12/7
New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons

Sunday 12/10
Minnesota Vikings at Carolina Panthers
Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills
San Francisco 49ers at Houston Texans
Chicago Bears at Cincinnati Bengals
"Oakland" Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs
Detroit Lions at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Green Bay Packers at Cleveland Browns
Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants
Washington Redskins at Los Angeles Chargers
New York Jets at Denver Broncos
Tennessee Titans at Arizona Cardinals
Philadelphia Eagles at Los Angeles Rams

Sunday Night Football
Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers

Monday Night Football 12/11
New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins

The Eagles have a chance/need to bounce back this week in LA against the overrated Rams, the Steelers must continue their march through the AFC to maintain playoff seed, and the Packers coaching staff can't afford to lose to the Browns.

Speaking of the Pack, #12's return to practice brings them back into playoff talks. They must run the table (and get some help against other WC contenders), but this team usually plays well in December, so a late run is more than plausible.
On second thought, let's not go to TechReport. Tis a silly place.

I buy the Mara conspiracy theories. Dude's been low-key scummy for a long time.


Unrelated note: I really hate injuries. The Texans have most of their best starters on IR this year :/ 15 or so players total.

The Eagles clinched a playoff berth but likely lost Wentz for a year. :(

So basically the 2017 Eagles are the 2016 Raiders...tons of promise securing a playoff berth, only to lose their QB right before the playoffs. Such a damn shame.

I guess we have the NFC South, though? The Saints are looking better than they have in years while the Saints and Panthers (2015 and 2016 NFC Champs) are running up into the Wild Card spots. Seattle and Green Bay might also be able to make serious runs, but they'll need to jump up a few spots to make the playoffs.
