Life's funny sometimes, and by "funny" I mean "a complete bitch."
Washington goes 8-8, finishes last in the NFC East, misses the playoffs.
San Diego goes 8-8, finishes first in the AFC West, not only makes the playoffs but gets a first-round game at home.
I don't know why I even bother following the NFL anymore. When it's gotten so bad you can't even fully enjoy a complete implosion by the Cowboys, you know you're having the very life sucked out of you. Even my fantasy team tanked the last couple of weeks, which just happened to be the playoffs, so it's not like I could even scrape any vicarious enjoyment off of a few individual players.
I guess it's go Falcons/Colts from here on out, assuming I even bother getting out of bed on Sundays. But at least Vince's kid won something, which was heartening. Mark my words: Derek's gonna be the next coach at Arkansas when Petrino finally bolts for the Notre Dame job. You heard it here first.
UPDATED TO KEEP ME OFF THE LEDGE: OK, this was kinda teh awesome.
