The game last night was fascinating/intriguing and downright fun to watch. Though just one man's opinion, the MNF crew in the booth is just damn good, with Brian Griese and Louis Riddick at the top of their game with insights. Probably many of you take the time to study the standings, and of course check the schedule. The Washington Football Team is listed as the seventh "seed" right now, yet tied with four other teams at 6-7.
So, my first question for all of you: Who gets that last berth in the NFC? If there is no change in the NFC standings the rest of the way the Cardinals would take on the 49ers, and the Rams would play the Cowboys—wow! For me, that would be match-ups with plenty of storylines.
As for the AFC, we have so many teams at 7-6 that there is going to most likely be a winning team that does not make the playoffs.
Would not even attempt at this point to state what would be the seeding in the AFC. Read online this morning in an ESPN column by Lindsey Thiry that only three men since the merger won the triple crown in receiving (Rice, Sharpe, and Steve Smith), and of course, Cooper Kupp of the Rams sure has a chance to join them.
Since the merger? So Don Hutson and Crazy Legs Hirsch don't count? Geez, the lack of depth in doing historical research by websites is just damn sad. Will not detail the folly of Ms. Thiry's comments about the Rams inconsistency, but if she had watched them play as many times as I have this year—she would not make such a foolish statement.

She is welcome in my den to watch a Ram game and would answer any/all of her questions, and just might share my Dr. Pepper while my wife fixes the entry.
Mark my words, Cooper K. and Rams will take on the 49ers the last day of the regular season, and the game will have MEANING. Not sure how many of you will take the time to do the research, but if intrigued which division in league history has the best road record in league history?
The NFC West is now 20-8, or simply put when on the road they win 5 of every —that is amazing to me! Possibly all four teams lose down the stretch when on the road, yet based on what has transpired so far they will all continue to win.
December the 12, 1937, and the Redskins...oh you want me to call them the Washington Football Team? The 'Skins are returning to the title game, and have a rookie tailback named Sammy Baugh.

The Bears led at half-time in Wrigley Field, but Sam is plenty accurate as he completes 18 of 33 for 335 yards in the Washington victory. For the sake of comparison, the '42 Steeler passers after seven games had completed 31 of 100 for 337 yards. Next week we will travel to Kezar.
