    2019 Coaching Carousel

    I just updated the OP, little slow, sorry, looks like only two openings left, both expected to hire coaches from teams still active, with the Dolphins expecting to bring in Brian Flores from the Patriots and the Bengals expected to bring in Zac Taylor from the Rams

    2019 Coaching Carousel

    It's that time of year again. As a reminder, I will update all official changes in this post, feel free to post any speculation you want in the thread and any news relating to interviews can be centralized, but until a firing/hiring is officially announced on NFL.com or a team's website I will not update this post. Here we go: Team - Old Coach - New Coach (2018 position) Bengals - Marvin Lewis Broncos - Vance Joseph - Vic Fangio (Bears DC) Browns - Hue Jackson - Freddie Kitchens (Browns RB Coach, interim OC) Buccaneers - Dirk Koetter - Bruce Arians (None, retired as Cardinals HC after 2017 season) Cardinals - Steve Wilks - Kliff Kingsbury (Texas Tech HC) Dolphins - Adam Gase Jets - Todd Bowles - Adam Gase (Dolphins HC) Packers - Mike McCarthy - Matt LaFleur (Titans OC)

    NFL.com still lists both Fangio and Kitchens as "expected hires" or "reports" from "sources" so I'm not updating the OP just yet, but both seem like solid hires

    2019 Coaching Carousel

    Kingsbury, Arians, and LaFleur have all been announced as official on NFL.com, so they're added to the OP I have no idea what LaFleur did this season to boost his resume, but good for him, unfortunately for Tennessee it means another new OC for Mariota, our fifth new playcaller since he was drafted, I wouldn't mind seeing someone internal that's been groomed to replace him so there isn't a huge shift, but I also kinda hope they wait until the dust settles with head coaches as I think some of the HC candidates could be great candidates if they don't land a HC job Also an interesting note on Arians, since he retired last season the Cardinals still had his rights, Tampa swapped a sixth round pick for an Arizona seventh rounder in this year's draft to be able to sign him

    2019 NFL.com Playoff Challenge

    sorry, that should say "round" rather than "game" you're right, although I will note that players don't lock into your roster until their team's game that week, so anyone who wants to join still can and can use any players playing tomorrow or just build a team of players on teams with the bye and lock in the multiplier for next week
  6. Multiple sites host variations of this, but we've done it on NFL.com in the past so it was easy to just reactivate our league, although everyone will need to re-register even if you were in it last year. here's the link to the group: https://playoffchallenge.fantasy.nfl.com/group/155394 password is taco Scoring hasn't changed from last year (and it's set by the website): Passing: 1 point per 25 yards, 4 points per TD, 2 points per 2pt conversion, -2 per INT Rushing/Recieving: 1 point per 10 yards, 6 points per TD, 2 points per 2pt conversion, -2 points per fumble lost, 6 points per fumble recovery TD kicking: 3 points per fg<50 yards, 5 points per fg 50+ yards, 1 point per PAT Defense/Special Teams: 6 points per fumble/int/kick return TD, 2 points per INT, 2 points per fumble recovery, 2 points per safety, 1 point per sack, 5 points per team win; offensive and special teams points allowed (doesn't include points allowed by the offense through int or fumble returns) : 0=10 points; 1-6=7 points, 7-13=4 points; 14-20=1 point; 21-27=0 points; 28-34=-1 point; 35+=-4, team win=5 points You get to change your lineups before each game, but each player's score is multiplied by the number of consecutive weeks that he's on your roster, so it's beneficial to stick with the same lineup if you can. If anyone has any issues getting signed up let me know.

    2019 Coaching Carousel

    I will note in a second post that I have seen the articles about the Cardinals getting rid of Steve Wilks, including him telling players he was going to be gone, but I haven't seen anything official so it's not going in the OP just yet EDIT: Of course, within half an hour of posting this it's on NFL.com as official, OP is updated

    2018/19 playoffs bracket

    My preference ranking of teams: How much fun would a Saints/Chargers Super Bowl be?
  10. Well, Jacksonville and Tampa went into complete freefall, but what's most interesting to me is that only two of these teams are in the playoffs, the other five are eliminated, meaning just as many teams that started 2-0 made the playoffs as teams that started 0-2, truly a weird season for the nfl
  11. Alright, here's the thread about teams off to a hot start, who falters hardest, who misses the playoffs, who stays undefeated the longest? The polls are pretty self explanatory, the one about missing the playoffs is open to multiple votes, and Green Bay and Minnesota are included in the last poll because even though they aren't 2-0 they are undefeated.
  12. Well, Houston and Seattle have both clinched playoff spots, and Houston is in the driver's seat to win the division
  13. It's that time again, only about 12% of teams that start 0-2 make the playoffs, we've got 7 0-2 teams, so by probability the expected outcome would have one team making the playoffs. I made the poll for which teams can make the playoffs multiple choice to hopefully boost conversation, so who do you think can make the playoffs? Who pulls together the best finish? EDIT: Added a third question of who will win last, Cleveland and Pittsburgh are included in that one because even though they're not 0-2 they are winless

    2018 TGP Fantasy Football

    Alright, nobody else is taking the reigns so I'll get this started. In the past we've had multiple leagues (I think as many as 4 in some years) but based on the lack of any of those leagues seeming to pop up so far we may be down to one, but let's see what the interest is. What I'm looking for in this thread is answers to the following questions: 1) Are you interested in doing a TGP fantasy league this season? (I'm going to assume that everyone who posts or votes in this thread is implying a yes to this one, so please don't vote in the polls unless you're going to play) 2) What platform do you want to use? (in the past I know we've used ESPN and Yahoo, but I'm open to suggestion for other free platforms) 3) What draft format do you want to do? (we've done standard snake as well as auction, I'm not aware of other formats, but if you know of others go for it) 4) Do you want to participate in multiple TGP leagues? (I'm asking this just in case we end up with too many people interested for one league but not quite enough for two, I don't want to do a 14 team league) 5) Are there any deal breakers? (this is primarily for options for the other two questions, but is not limited to that, we'll get into nuts and bolts later, but if you want to go ahead and say you're not playing if it's not PPR, or won't use IDPs, go for it) I created polls for 2, 3, and 4, while the results from 2 and 3 will be considered they won't be dispositive as some weight may be given to 5 if necessary for numbers, please answer #5 in a post. Also, please post your thoughts on the poll questions, don't just vote, you may be able to talk people into your preferences and if anyone has really strong preferences towards any of the options I will consider that to a similar extent as deal breakers.

    Redskins @ Eagles

    So you put your backup qb in early in the second quarter, first play your rb takes 90 yards to the house, and you only give him the ball 5 times the rest of the game?

    2018 TGP Fantasy Football

    In spite of the dead weight we had a great run for the playoffs with four teams tied for the last two spots, unfortunately I just missed the cut, but I'll take closing out on a four game winning streak (although admittedly two of the wins were against the bottom feeders) Also, for reference next year Phil had LeVeon Bell and Delanie Walker in his lineup all season even though neither played a game and Sean only made one change to his lineup after week 7 despite having bye weeks and injured players starting, if I'm running the league next year neither will be part of it barring some extenuating circumstances, which can be explained to me by PM. Regarding the other 2 win team, Rob Urish (not sure what his user name is) he seemed to keep his team updated except for a three week stretch from weeks 10 through 12, so I'm a little more likely to be forgiving of that.

    2018 TGP Fantasy Football

    Sorry, busy weekend and I just got back, we won't be doing the draft today because I still need to get the team owners settled out. I'm planning on doing the draft Wednesday at 9, if that doesn't work for anyone let me know now because we're down to the wire for getting the draft done before Thursday. As of now, the participants will be as follows: Me Ace Phil MHG BC Than F4E Ngata ATL Vin Bjorn Seanbrock Basically, it's last year's participants with Sean instead of my brother, that way we're back to just members of the board and it's a 12 team league, which I think is the ideal size. Sean has joined so at this point I'm working on getting my brother's team removed and switching F4E to a different ESPN account EDIT: Okay, so we're down to the 12 teams listed above, just waiting for F4E's new email so I can get his team updated, still looking to set the draft Wednesday at 9 ET, sorry for any confusion and inconvenience today.

    2018 TGP Fantasy Football

    You werein the league last year so you should be good, check on ESPN and confirm, draft may not happen today, I'm still out of town so I'm not sure I'll get the draft set up in time
  23. oochymp

    2018 TGP Fantasy Football

    Alright, sean's in, which puts the league at 13 temporarily, I'm waiting to hear from F4E, but I think I'm gonna be removing my brother to get us to 12, still planning to do the draft at 4 or 430 depending on when I get home and how quickly I can get it set up

    2018 TGP Fantasy Football

    So, I'm an idiot, or I can't follow when we user names that aren't people's current user names, but it looks like seanbrook is the only person who's expressed interest that wasn't in the ESPN league last year, and F4E is the only person from last year's league who hasn't expressed interest this season. This leaves us with two options, seanbrook can either take F4E's spot or by brother's, F4E will greet first shot at claiming it. I'm still hoping to do the draft this afternoon, bit it's contingent on getting the league set in time, I'll plan to reschedule it for late Wednesday (8 or 9 eastern) if we can't get everyone on board today.
