Joe Rexrode on the Athletic Football Show today described the Brown situation as the final nail in the coffin. There were other things that ownership didn't like about Robinson, like deliberately leaving Vrabel out of discussions if he thought there would be disagreement. The Brown deal is...
I know the Saints were 12-3 in 87 and the 49ers won the division at 13-2. I do think that Insein might be right about someone going 13-3.
Maybe the Titans the year Jacksonville went 14-2 and the Titans beat them both times in the regular season and then again in the playoffs.
It looks to me that if the eagles go 3-2, they almost certainly will get the 1 seed. Minnesota would have to go 5-0 to pass them and the cowboys would have to go 5-0 just to tie and possibly get the tiebreak depending on who the eagles lost to. So that seems like a pretty good situation.
None of the games that Embiid sits are by his choice. He always wants to play.
Sure there are examples of players who want to load manage themselves, but I think it is more the exception than the rule.
