    Well, I feel like that mostly just applies to Goff. They've also got Gurley, a solid OL of veterans, (on paper) definitely the best CB group in the league, and probably the best DL in the league. Most of those pieces were there last season, and other than Goff, it's consistent guys like Gurley, Donald, and Barron. They absolutely could take a step back, but: the 49ers have a ways to go, and I kind of count Garoppolo and a rookie QB in that teams will do better against him with tape on him; the Cards are in full rebuild; Seattle still has Wilson, but no OL and their defensive core fell apart. So even if they take a significant step back, they have a pretty easy path forward into the playoffs.
    Outside of the AFCE and the AFCN, I can't think of a more one-sided division.

    • Even if things go nuclear in the locker room, the Rams don't really have any competition in the division.

          This I can definitely agree with.

            • RIP Dwight Clark.

              Christian McCaffery's little brother just committed to Nebraska as a QB. Really want to see what Scott Frost can do over there.

              The PAC 12 just passed a rule that 5-7 teams can't go to bowl games. Good. Too many matchups of 5-7/6-6 teams in the meaningless bowls.

                Really, there should only be like 15 bowl games anyway. The top 30 teams in the country get to play, everybody else sits home and gets better.

                  8 team playoff! Then like 12-15 bowls. We don't need to see like a 6-6 New Mexico State vs. 6-6 UL-Lafayette or whatever in whatever the Humanitarian bowl is nowadays.

                    Abso-****ing-lutely.

                    So, NFL players are actually looking like they may have a first amendment claim about kneeling. With Trump uninviting the Iggles to the White House because they wouldn't say no one would kneel and Jerry's deposition saying that Trump pressured owners, this new rule is starying to look a whole lot like government action, not private entities.

                          Could never get into that show. Couldn't get attached to the characters and found myself rooting for the zombies at times.

                          I don't know, for me personally I always associate zombies with cheesy movies and videogames. Probably why Zombieland is my favorite zombie movie. I just view the concept as cheesy fun and silly violence, and just can't be super serious about it.

                            I gave up on the show a long time ago. It has it's interesting moments, but just became grief porn to be "edgy". I think my fave zombie movies are 28 days later and Stakeland.
