Week 15: Everything You Need to Know (and then some)

2020 Playoff Pontificator pt. II

Ok, I’m not sure why I decided to waste several hours of my life exploring and then writing up so much detailed information regarding Raider playoff possibilities after such a stinker of a game, but you, the blogue’sters will be the beneficiaries of such nonsense.

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.
