TRF’s Week 14 Playoff Pontificator

What a wild ride we have been on this year.  After a week 2 blowout against the Jets that had us sitting at 2-0, it looked by all accounts that we were right back in 2016 mid-season form.  The offense looked great, Carr was humming and even recent acquisition Marshawn Lynch hosted a sideline dance party.

Then, the inexplicable hit us like a ton of proverbial bricks….

Playoff Pontificator: Week 13

Hello once again fellow Pillagers and welcome to TRF’s Week 13 Edition of the NFL Playoff Pontificator.

Week 12 Playoff Pontificator: Leftover Turkey Edition

TRF’s Week 12 Playoff Pontificator: Leftover Turkey Edition…

Greetings Pillagers! Once again, it’s TRF comin’ at ‘cha loud and proud!

Ok, well proud might be a bit of a stretch.  Stretch also seems like the appropriate word after we all collectively expanded our waistlines a bit yesterday.  I won’t lie comrades, this edition of the PP was a tough one to put together.  On one had we are very much alive on the abacus front (largely due to the overall ineptitude of the AFC) while on the other we are hanging on by a psychological thread when it comes to a year end team implosion.  Lets not sugar coat this puppy.

Playoff Pontificator: Week 11

TRF’s Inaugural 2017 Week 11 Playoff Pontificator

Today, we are going to talk playoffs.  PLAYOFFS?! (Insert Jim Mora soundtrack).  Ok, after last year’s run I’m sure most of us thought we would be looking at securing a bye right about now instead of clinging to our collective playoff lives.  That said, it is what it is and we need to make some statistical lemonade.  It’s hard to believe that we were 7-2 a mere 12 months ago.  So why, one year later, are we sitting at 4-5?  Well, if we choose to play the blame game there is a lot of it to spread around.
