I am not particularly sold on the value of a salary cap to maintain parity considering in the last 30 years when contracts started going out of control in the MLB has had 14 different teams win the World Series since '94 (when the NFL instituted the cap) to 15 for the NFL and we lost a year because of the MLB strike, which could have potentially had the Expos win it had the season played out. For arguments sake, since '94 the NBA has had 10 different teams (though they've had a cap since '84 but funnily enough still would have had 10 different teams winning) win the Championship and the NHL has had 13 teams win a Stanley Cup since '94 (with a lockout year in 2004/2005) and 7 since they implemented a cap for 2005/2006 season.

So yeah I'm not sure if you can argue that a salary cap creates parity. There is so much more to it, teams coming together well and things falling into place at the right time matter more. Though yes being able to pay huge sums of money to great players helps with that to some degree.

Also Vikings winning the NFC North was great and it was especially great to see Teddy Bridgewater come back (results could have been better) after that knee injury that some thought might end his career prematurely.

@chrisbg99

Not only his career, but I thought it was a life-threatening injury too? Or am I mistaken there?

The Rams looked legit in Seattle yesterday, too.

I sure hope the NFL revises their stupid catch rule. While the rule was enforced correctly, the Steelers got hosed.

The NFL's salary cap creates parity in that there are usually 5 good teams, 5 bad teams, and 22 teams that are mostly interchangeable.

I don't think his life was ever in question but no one was sure if he'd be able to recover enough to play football ever again.

Though with Keenum having a great year the Vikes are in a pickle. Do they go with Case but who knows what next year holds or Teddy who despite returning may not get back to the level he was at at the time of the injury and beyond? Though I got to figure Teddy might not demand as big a contract because of the uncertainty.

The Bills will need a QB. Tyrod will most likely move on after the completion of this season.

Well the Wentz-less Eagles beat the Giants (not that that's any surprise since the Giants stink this year)...what is up with that defense though? I unfortunately didn't get to watch the game but only saw the score change online. Nicky Foles throws for 4 TDs and the game is still that close? I think the Eagles still have a good shot of getting to and even winning the NFC Championship game, but without Wentz, it's definitely an uphill battle.

Well today was quite eventful in terms of NFL playoff seedings. Gotta give credit to the Bills for doing what they had to do and things falling into place to get them into the playoffs.

BILLS = SUPER BOWL!!!

What an amazing Sunday of football. It's sad that some people are giving the Bills shit for making the playoffs based on luck and not merit. I just don't understand that line of thinking. The Bills won the games they should have. The Chargers started, what, 0-4?? That's not luck, that's merit. You get what you deserve.

It's awesome hearing the stories of Bills fans donating to Andy Dalton's charity, $17 dollars at a time. And watching all the reactions online has been so much fun. I'm very happy for Kyle Williams, who has stuck with the organization since being drafted by the team 12 years ago. It also made me ponder truly just how long it's been in my own life. I was a senior in high school in 1999!!

Congrats to the Bills and kudos to all the Bills fans who have donated to Dalton's charity, super classy move.

I was hoping this would be the season that finally convinced Mike Brown to get rid of Marvin Lewis, but alas it looks like he's coming back. If that's the case, then I am done with the Bengals until Mike steps down from running the team. He's done nothing but bring misery to fans of the team, and I'm out.

So who wins in a battle of futility? The 2017 Browns or the 2008 Detroit Lions?

41 Days until Pitchers and Catchers report!

@chrisbg99

The Browns can't win anything, so...

And I don't mean "The 2017 Browns." Talking about, like, ever.

That video was quite amazing. I complained a lot about being a Bills fan, but geez....the Browns suck!
