As a big NFL and Football guy I felt this year was such a weird year for the NFL and the front office and the NFL office in NY needs to pay attention. First, someone needs to give Kapernick a shot... I am not a supporter or a detractor for the dude but he WAS IN A SUPERBOWL just a few years ago and now can't even get a sniff in the NFL when they are marching dudes out for the Redskins and Dolphins who have flamed out years before? I think his best days are behind him, but hey someone needs to take a flier for the league, give the guy a shot to fail and so the league and society can move on. Secondly, the NFL needs to look at its hiring practices... I mean the Cards dumping their head coach after ONE SEASON? Come on, if they dumped the head coach they needed to dump the GM and the owner as well. Even Daniel Snyder doesn't throw his coaches out that fast! Thirdly, the NFL keeps talking about Parity... Parity... Parity... it is what makes the league so great! I think I heard that the Pats have been in 9 SBs over the last 17 years? Over HALF THE TIME the Pats are in the SB? That is not parity, that is a dynasty and the rest of the owners and the players and the GMs and the coaches need to take notice. For all the grief that TB12 gets, he has to be the best QB to ever diagnose a defense and make the three throws he needs to make to win a game. He was horrible the first half, missed so many receivers, and then in the third he turns it around, makes three great throws and they win the game. And Belicheck, whether he is a cheater (remember in Nascar, if you ain't cheatin, you ain't tryin) or not, you have to respect a guy who just continues to win. He wins with star receivers like Randy Moss and with small D1 EX QBs and guys who are too small to play this game (edelman, amendola, and the OG Wes Welker). He wins with a no name defense and with defensive start who have gone on to be color commentators, broadcasters and NFL coaches. The dude could coach the un-coachable into being a productive member of his team. It is unreal. And I say all of this as a Broncos fan... As far as the SB, snooze... the halftime show...... snooze to the 12th degree..... about the only thing that was entertaining was Gladys killing the National Anthem!!
