NFL Week 16 Ten keen observations

See also

Observations/notes from NFL week 16, ending Dec 23, 2013:

1) Tony Romo will always do just enough to keep hope alive ( such as a "dramatic" come-from-behind win in Week 16, over a then 3-11 Redskins team, which was starting the second string QB ).

2) The Atlanta Falcons should give Tony Gonzalez the "Charles Haley" option, for next season.

3) I will never again put my reputation on the line, when it comes to supporting the Detroit Lions.

4) The Chicago Bears should go ahead and tank this weekend. The sooner Jay Cutler's awkward offseason gets underway, the better.

5) The more regular season accolades Peyton Manning receives, and regular season records he sets, the more magnified are his playoff failures. Late season injuries to both Wes Welker and Von Miller, do provide a built-in excuse for this postseason.

6) The AFC will not be represented by the Chiefs or Broncos, in Super Bowl XLVIII.

7) The Jonathan Martin case was strange, weird, unusual, and the public will never truly know what happened.

8) The Steelers, Dolphins, and Chargers, must be agonizing over any number of victories they let slip through their collective fingers this season.

9) The Dallas Cowboys are destined to be 8-8 for the third straight season. This, combined with the playoff uncertainty caused by Tony Romo's late season injury, means they will once again be one of the "Expert's" Super Bowl picks next season.

10) Merry Xmas to all, and to all, a good night.
