Mayfield has obviously signed. Easy to verify. That is kind of odd. There's like eight of us that perhaps post on a regular basis, and every so often we get someone drifting over from the cycling section, which is cool, but that's about it!
I have to admit I miss some people who used to post here. Merckx Index, on3m@n@amy, Tore Bear, The Hitch. A few more I'm sorry to say I'm forgetting.
I believe the Vikings were 11-1 in one score games last year. I'm not going to call it luck either, but considering how they were easily beaten by the Eagles, Cowboys, and Packers, and didn't come close to winning their home playoff game against the Giants, I think it's fair to say they were a little lucky, and more like a 11-6 team, which still would have won the division.
Raiders were 4-9 in one score games. As a fan I watched them all, and in all honesty they probably should have gone 8-9, maybe 9-8, instead of 6-11. That's about it. They were a little unlucky. But bad play, a weak defense, and mistakes really did them in.
As the old saying goes, winners make their own luck.
