Even in the NCAA tournament, where the disparity between bottom seeds and top seeds should be even larger, there has still been 1 16v1 upset (and fairly recently at that when the Cavaliers laid an egg) and more than a few 15v2 and 14v3 upsets.

WTF has only won 1 playoff game at home since FedEx was built in 1997 and that 1 was 22 years ago. If they weren't playing Detroit that day, they'd probably have zero.

As a lifelong Vikings fan, I concur. And also a lifelong DC area resident, like Red Dog I believe, I feel that DC pain. That Sports Futility thread we have kills me, as I religiously follow two area with franchises in all four sports, and they both usually top the futile list of 4-sport cities. I have like 400 years and 7 total championships, almost all 1991 and earlier.

Yeah but the Lions and WFT aren't a "National Team". The fact that the Cowboys are still the most popular tean in the NFL and consistently have the best ratings is kind of baffling based on the past 20 years. It's like everyone's taste was cemented in the '70s and never changed.

Well, at least I'm glad I never turned into the kind of rabid fan who would harrass someone's family because of a penalty...

In many ways, you just described the Leafs.

Welp time to be disappointed.

At least I got my emotional hedge bet on the Rams in.

Re: NFL 2022 Super Wild Card Weekend Thread

Illegal forward pass Why would they do a play like that in the 1st quarter?

It's hard to imagine, but the Cardinals could have a worse first half than the Steelers did last night.

Steelers: 45 yards, 2 first downs.
Cardinals so far: -4 and 0.

Yeah, Kyler Murray does not remotely look like a playoff quarterback so far. Even giving him some credit for this being his first time, he still looks bad.

It isn't him. It is 100% on Kliff. He is garbage. Atrocious game plan.
