"Week #17 NFL Complaining Thread."
One of the theories behind the Colts' last-minute surge claims it's because they want no part of any Luck -- no matter how good that Luck might be. They want their Manning back, they want management to be forced into paying him the twenty-eight million dollars, and they don't care if he's only got another year or two left. They're pushing themselves to the final-week wins from loyalty and luv for their field general. The future of the franchise can worry about itself when it arrives, because all they've got is now.

The flipside of this theory basically reads as 'And starting for the New York Jets in 2012, Peyton Manning.'

T'all had better lose today. We can't risk having him that close to all those advertising agencies.

Seriously: he'd have his own channel. All of them.

So far the Panthers are in trouble, 13:21 left in the first quarter and already down 7, but at least some of the Saints runners have had a chance to stretch their legs early on with some long runs

With relatively little drama in the NFC, this is the early shift game in NYC. No idea how many people are watching it with the Jets trying to find new and interesting ways to miss the playoffs (when already just about guaranteed to do so), but Cam is getting some local face time.

Commercials are next.

New York already has its Manning. Why do they need two?

Cahaya will be along later to make fun of me, but I hope the Colts lose today. Peyton's had a great career here, but the team isn't close to contending even if he comes back fully healthy. My vote is for a complete rebuild.

If I recall correctly, Flynn did a pretty good job against the Patriots last year. (I'm pretty sure it was last year.)

Nah, not this time. They did make a decent game of it, though.

Now for the off-season conundrum that the Colts front office will have to deal with. There'll be plenty of speculation right up through draft day.

My theory is that the Colts will keep the first pick, choose Luck (with the connections already long established) and groom him to take Payton's place. There may be some contract negotiations that will need to happen, but I don't expect the Colts front office to trade (or release) either Payton or the first draft pick. It might make more sense to trade one or the other for a slew of picks or players that would round out the aging team, but I don't see Irsay and Polian doing it.

66. "RE: Week #17 NFL Complaining Thread."
In a perfect world, this is what I'd like to see to happen with the Colts: Cut Peyton to save $28 million (a silly concept to give a $28 bonus in the first place), re-sign him for two years at a reasonable salary, have Luck learn under Peyton for one year at least, then in the second year start the transition from Peyton to Luck. Peyton then moves into the Colts coaching staff because he'd be a great coach of some kind - QBs, offensive coordinator, head coach.

This is the best way to ensure that the franchise, as a whole, wins in all cases so they don't overpay on one position and are able to spread the $$ around to pick up other players at positions in need... but would Peyton go for it? He probably has too much pride in his ability as QB to settle for a lesser contract.

3. "Playoff scenarios."
LAST EDITED ON 01-01-12 AT 11:42 AM (EST)

(For the most part, I'm leaving out ties unless they would be comedic.)

AFC

Patriots: They're either the #1 or the #2. If they win, they lock up home field. Lose and it opens the door for the Ravens and Steelers.

Ravens: In the nastiest position of the day. Win and they guarantee themselves at least the #2 seed. Lose and they tumble all the way to the #5. So it's a week off and at least one home game or see you Saturday/Sunday on the road. Lying down against the Bengals is not advised.

Steelers: Currently have a wild card. Can get all the way to a #1 or #2 with Patriots and Ravens losses. Needs the Ravens to loss in order to get the division.

Texans: They're the #3. Nothing that happens today can change that.

Broncos: Get the #4 if they win. Also get it if they lose and the Raiders follow suit. Do not win just because Tubya takes a knee and asks for it. (We hope.) They can't get a wild card under any scenario: it's the division or nothing.

Raiders: They get the #4 if they win and Denver loses. They can get a wild card if they win and see both the Bengals and Titans lose -- or, interestingly, a Bengals loss and Jets win.

Bengals: Beat the Ravens and they've got a wild card. If they lose, they need the Jets to blow it plus either the Raiders or Broncos to fail, no preference.

Titans: Have a wild card with a win and one of three combo packs: Bengals and Raiders lose with a Jets win, same but swap Raiders for Broncos, or Bengals lose plus the Jets lose and both the Raiders and Broncos win. So in other words, see you next year.

Jets: No. Just -- no.

*sigh* Okay, this is their magic road. They've got to beat the Dolphins (again, no) and then the Bengals have to lose, the Titans have to lose, and either the Broncos or Raiders to lose. So in summary: no.


NFC

Packers: Are the #1 and have no way out of it.

49ers: Have the West wrapped up. They're the #2 seed if they win. They can also get it if the Saints lose.

Saints: Took the South. They need a win and a 49er loss if they want the #2: without it, they're the #3 seed.

Lions: Have a wild card. Apparently could get the #5 instead of the #6 if they win today, and since the Packers are barely scheduled to show up...

Falcons: Locked into the other wild card. Could use a win today to keep from being the #6.

Giants & Cowboys: Whoever wins the final game is the #4.

If they tie, the Giants get it.

10. "Patriots vs. Bills."
What may be driving the NE fans nuts right now is that their team still has something to play for: that lock on the #1 seed, which falls into serious doubt if they blow this game. Part of me suspects Hoodie is at the ego point where he thinks this is golf and he's giving the opposition handicap swings before starting to play, but...

13. "Halftime on the early shift."
So far...

...whoever the Packers drafted out of the stands, they're managing to compete with and stay ahead of the Lions. This may be cause for Detroit concern.

...the 49ers are doing their part. So are the Rams.

...Rex Ryan foolishly believes there's a chance.

...the Titans are arguing that non-point.

...no one cares what the Bears and Vikings are doing, including the teams involved.

...the Patriots are wondering whether naptime is over yet.

...the Panthers and Saints have opted to play pinball.

...the Redskins are doing what they do best.

...Peyton isn't packing, but he is trying to remember where he put his studio lights makeup kit.

...and the Eagles are still out of the playoffs.

So there's that.

16. "Jets out & Colts secure #1 pick."
If you saw that not-fumble by the Jets in the last three minutes -- the one Jason taylor sort of returned before having it reversed -- you may think it was a real pity to have that play called back. And honestly, I agree. That little spontaneous mess of comedy would have been the perfect endcap to the 8-8 Same Old Season we just saw Gang Green finish spitting up all over themselves. Thanks for playing, kids -- or so says the rest of the league.

Meanwhile, the question of which commercials Peyton will be filming next is now on the board. Send in your lucrative offers now!

Get the ball when you shouldn't have a chance at it again

Check

Get the touchdown you need to win

Check

Set up for the two point to win rather than tie

Check

False Start get 5 yard penalty

Check

Snap the ball over the quarterback's head

Check

So how many Houston fans died of a heart attack over that little bit of game play.

I think zero... Houston just wanted to avoid going to overtime and risk injuring their last QB, keeping as many players as possible healthy for the playoffs next week. Going to overtime would just have created more potential situations for an injury to happen.

23. "The Lions and Packers redefine 'shootout'."
LAST EDITED ON 01-01-12 AT 05:46 PM (EST)

And rewrite the record book in the process: it's the first NFL game where both passing offenses got 400 or more yards -- and it's not over yet! The Packers (whoever they currently are) have the ball with less than two minutes to go and they're driving! They want more yards! More points! A longer delay of whatever comes on in primetime! And as I wrote that, they got to 2nd and goal at the Detroit 4-yard line -- no, now it's a touchdown! The Packers are ahead! Detroit will get the ball back with about 1:10 to go! And you know what that means? More yardage!

Oh, that poor, abused NFL record book. If only the numbers in it actually meant something.

ETA: Figures: Packers got the ball back. And now they're kneeling for -1 yard per knee touch. Don't they have any respect for history?

exactly 1000 yards passing

I'll admit to lightly adoring this part. The human psyche is naturally attracted to big round numbers and the idea that the next group has to go for 1001 is fun all by itself. It's just not a record people will be intentionally trying to break -- the circumstances have to align perfectly, and the clock is the biggest enemy on the field.

Sixty-seven passes completed in one game. Tubya might need three seasons.

But what does it say more about each team?

Detroit's Def is in trouble big time vs. NO (which we've already seen).

or

GB's Def is in not ready for a repeat unless they can out score you.

25. "More seeds settle into place."
The Patriots are officially the AFC's #1. Also jerks.

The 49ers got the NFC #2 -- barely.

The Titans are still alive, but they need the rest of the league to cooperate on a level which colluding owners can barely manage.

And the Eagles are still out.

Denver in the first quarter: zero first downs, Tubya 0-for-2 on passes. He just completed his first connection (other than the one where he flew over the stadium and personally blew the Chiefs' field goal attempt offline with his mighty wind). But since it's only 7-0 Chiefs and the power will flow in the fourth, all that failure currently means nothing. Just like every faith outside of his subsect. No.Thing.

Meanwhile, the Raiders are tied at 7 and the Bengals/Ravens game, which people might actually want to watch, is not available in this area. Because the Tubya has decreed it, and he's more respected than the Dalai Lama. Who, by the way, can throw a tighter spiral.

Feh.

...oh, look: Tubya just had the ball stripped and gave it away to the Chiefs. Look at that happy Chiefs defender. *shakes head* No idea he's going to burn.

28. "So you want to host the Super Bowl..."
With the Colts brilliant 2-14 season, teams serving as the host for the Super Bowl have fallen to an overall record of

325-415-5 (.439)

The last host team to advance to the post-season would be the 2000 Tampa Bay Bucs, who lost in the Wild Card round. The 1998 Dolphins were the last to win a playoff game, but were done by the Division game.

No team has ever played in the Super Bowl on their home field. Two teams came close, though. Super Bowl XIV was played at the Rose Bowl, with the Los Angeles Rams bowing to the Pittsburgh Steelers (the Rams home at the time was the L.A. Coliseum). V Super Bowls later (XIX), the San Francisco 49ers won at Stanford Stadium, just up the bay from their home at Candlestick Park.

2013 - Saints
2014 - Giants & Jets

Wow, what an abysmal performance from Tebow in a critical season-on-the-line game... 6 for 22, 59 yards, 1 INT.

The worst part? Denver is still in the playoffs as the Raiders are down by 12 points with 5 minutes left.

James Harrison must be drooling at the prospect of hurtling himself head-first into Tebow next week.

Right now, there is a very good chance we could have 3 AFC North teams in the final four in the AFC. Baltimore will have a first round bye, Pittsburgh is up against the Tebows and Cincy has a hobbled Texans team to go up against.

Update... it might not be such a cakewalk for the Steelers against the Tebows, after all. The higher powers must be working overtime to make sure the Steelers are softened up enough to make them beatable -- reports are coming out that Mendenhall may have a torn ACL, which would put him out for the playoffs. Add that to the injuries that Big Serial and Big Hair are hobbled with plus the referees watching James Harrison like a hawk, and that's four pretty significant players for the Steelers.

Tubya's deciding to damn others instead of saving himself, combined with the Jets basically being the Jets, just turned the key in the Bengals reverse gear box: they've backed into the playoffs on their loss.

Sure enough: another week of this carp. Great effort, Snidget, but save some of it for the wild card round. And if anyone knows how to make a Tubya voodoo doll, I wouldn't wait one day longer. Sticking a needle into the nearest Bible might do it as long as you avoid the Old Testament.

Well, I know who I'm picking against. On so many levels.

42. "Romo's throwing hand: 'deep contusion'."
The NBC panel claims they were afraid to shake his hand at the pregame press briefing because they weren't going to be held responsible for knocking him out of the game. Of course, we're talking about the NFL, so there's a chance he's wearing some really expert F/X makeup on it. The pregame show claims he was barely able to take snaps during the week, sure -- but here he is starting anyway, and if he was really in that much trouble, wouldn't the Cowboys be going to their backup?

Or maybe the plan is to have the defense on the field as much as possible and just go for every Eil Interception available. There should be at least five.

It was clearly a no-spin kick done with the left foot.

Recovering punts is dangerous business tonight. But at least it's equal opportunity follies. Why, two more slips and they qualify for their very own Broadway musical!

Due to hearing loss since birth, I'm quite adept at lipreading. I could lipread the news announcer on TV and listen to music with the headphones on at the same time.

Expletives on the sideline are rather commonplace. Hardly a game goes by I don't see it at least once.

Single-team jealousy, that's what you have.

Can you have one NFC and one AFC team? Can you have one real team and one fantasy team? Or in your case, one sort of team and sixty fantasy teams? And given that I'm basically waiting out the time until the Mets set a new standard for bankruptcy svck, can I follow instead of fanning?

*pictures self fanning football players*

...that came out wrong.

60. "No complaints"
I've had a hugely successful fantasy and pick 'em season, so no complaints here.

Moly's Vince3 Memorial Pick 'Em: 1st place
Politically Incorrect OT FF league: 3rd place
Naked's OT FF league: 1st place (with the Hoosier Geckos, who have won the leauge title all three times I've played them! Lucky name, I guess, for the hattrick.)
Nutzy's Salary Cap league: 1st place (aptly named the Hoosier Buckos)
Estee's Suicide Pick 'Em: At least I lived long enough to earn and play the Lockout!

Truth be told, it was a lot of work, mainly keeping up with NFL team and player news each and every day and working out the odds for each bet, play or roster move (lots of those!).

So, no complaints!

64. "Sports radio mini-apocalypse: New York."
It's not that the Jets core feels they got robbed yesterday: everyone acknowledges the playoffs were a longshot more suited to the Kentucky Derby than the NFL. It's more that they feel the team should have never been in that position to begin with. As such, the cries are going up, and they sound off as:

New offensive coordinator.
Last year is Rex's last chance (and he needs to take responsibility for calls).
Start considering if you can really win with Mark Sanchez.

And naturally, all of that is slowly heading towards:

Say, do you think Peyton's gonna be available?

Because, you know, the last time they rolled the dice with someone else's franchise QB, things turned out so well.
