    Teams can do that. The Browns can't and won't. Jimmy Haslem is the worst owner in the NFL.

    Heard this on WWL this morning. Since 1970, this will be the 21st time a team has hosted a divisional rival in the playoffs after having swept the home-and-home in the regular season. In the previous 20 matchups, the team that swept the regular season went 13-7 in the playoffs to complete the 3-game sweep. History favors the Saints this weekend.

    Cam Jordan is 1st team AP All Pro; Alvin Kamara is 2nd team as "offensive flex player"

    Yes, but I tell you what sucks. He was beat out at that "flex" position by Le'veon Bell. OK, Bell is 1st team Offensive Flex Player. But they also named him 2nd team running back. Well, is he a real running back or a flex player? Did Ingram get screwed out of 2nd team All Pro because they honored Bell twice for playing the same position?

    As much as I hate to see the Falcons win even a game of tiddlywinks their win over the Rams could mean the Saints could host the NFC championship if it gets that far. Not surprise that they beat the Rams since they have playoff experience and the Lambs didn't.

    Saints win and they go to Philadelphia. Atlanta will travel to Minnesota.

    Edit: Oops! You're right. Would go to Minnesota. At least it's in a dome.

    Same dome they took a solid ass whippin to start the season. Wasn't a competitive game. At no time as the game unfolded did it feel like they were in it.
