Week 12 poster boy for the F-ed up state of 2019 NFL kicking:

Panthers PK Joey Slye makes 41 and 52 yard field goals, and misses TWO extra points and a potential game winning 28 yarder.

(Not picking on poor Joey just because he's from Virginia Tech. But I could I suppose. No, I shouldn't - not before this week's big game against Virginia. Don't want to have to eat crow two days after eating turkey.)

I was screaming at the TV as loudly as Saints fans were when they were watching Christian McCraffery run roughshod over the Saints' defense. And probably when the Panthers successfully used a review for a pass interference.

If Ron Rivera is heading to unemployment, I want him to get a better spot in line than Matt Patricia.

Jason Garrett I don't worry about. He's apparently unfireable.

I think ol' Riverboat Ron was able to buy him another season because of Cam Newton being on IR.

And for the love of god, NFL owners, stop hiring Belichick assistants!

But it's OK to hire former Belichick players. I'm a Vrabel supporter. He seems to be unlocking the Titans beast code.

Thanks to Coach Vrabel, Ryan Tannehill now has more than one reason to be happy when he gets home on Sunday nights.
