NFL At Large: Doc’s Thoughts on the Divisional Round Playoff Games. 

January 18, 2016

The bandwagoneers are jumping ship in Seattle. 1. The Patriots returned to form against the Chiefs because Julian Edelman played.

January 11, 2016

Blair Walsh. The new face of “Miss”ery 1.I know most people think that Marvin Lewis should be fired because of what happened on Saturday night but I wouldn’t fire him for that.
