    I thought we were not playing Harris because in practice he is terrible at blitz pick up and catching the ball and could get Brady killed out there,

    Re Harris, check out James White's rookie year. Same mystery.

    This is a little off topic but doesn't deserve its own thread. Sports talk radio down here in Atlanta is melting down over the decision to bring back Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff. For some reason 28-3 keeps coming up :D.

    Congrats to the Pats for permanently destroying this franchise. It will never recover.

    The Steelers lost out on the playoffs in 2009 when Indy tanked a Jets game in week 16 instead of going for a very doable undefeated season. I can still see the stunned faces of Jeff Saturday and PEDton Manning when they learned that they were being pulled.

    The Indiots did this so that the Jets would get in instead of the Steelers, who were known to give Indy much trouble back then. Bill Polian then announced to the mediots that the Pats' loss in 2007 was their excuse for tanking.

    It almost worked when Indy got NJ in the AFC title game, but PEDton ended up throwing a pick six against the Saints in the SB for the clincher.

    That's the weird part. In the case of the Ten, Pitt, Oak, Ind games, it's possible that Oak can get in if they win and Ten and Pitt lose, but they still may need Indy to win also.

    Raiders can’t get in unless Indy wins. With Indy in the 4 way tiebreaker they have a chance but in a 3 team tie they can’t win the tie breaker

    Or it's just the fact that Michel, White, Burkhead and Bolden are ahead of him and he's not outperformed them in practice. And there hasn't been an injury severe enough to one of them to move Harris up the depth chart.

    Why does it have to be a work ethic issue or a lack of grasping the offense? As was pointed out in the Miami Game Day Thread, White went through the same thing when the Pats had Blount, Ridley, Vereen, and Bolden ahead of him. White was the backup to Vereen. It's why they turned to Jonas Gray when both Blount and Ridley went down.

    I saw a tweet saying Cleveland didn't make up their mind yet abt Kitchens. That would scare the hell outta me as a potential replacement coach. Speaks to the fact that they still have absolutely 0 clue in how to run a franchise.

    As much talent as you can stack. Coming off a promising year with rookie QB who played great. Everything pointing up & you lay this egg. Everyone was bad but Kitchens looked clueless all year. Decision making, clock management, no one looked like they were in a better spot than last year which speaks to development & how well you know your team. You can't go forward with him after acquiring that talent/QB.

    I agree with what you wrote. Which is why his red shirt season doesn't make much sense.
