Things start with the Los Angeles Chargers traveling to face the New England Patriots (yes http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-joe-staley-jersey
, the Patriots are back in the playoffs again). The game kicks off at 10:05 a.m. PT on CBS, with Jim Nantz and Tony Romo in the booth. Tracy Wolfson will be on the sideline.Once again, I’m eating some crow. I said, “The Chargers won’t be good this year [direct quote].” Well, they advanced to the AFC divisional last week after beating the Baltimore Ravens. It probably was donejust to further grind into me how wrong I was. They not only are advancing, but looked good in their win against the Ravens http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-pierre-garcon-jersey
, who were surprising people late with their retooled offense. Thanks to the AFC East being inconsistent yet again, the New England Patriots are in the playoffs and coming off their first round bye. Tom Brady gets a year older, but the Patriots just keep going like he was in his second year. Despite their status as a No. 2 seed, all four of the Patriots’ losses have come against teams not in the playoffs. All of them on the road. Well, the Patriots get home field advantage so that will help them out. New England is a four point favorite, with the largest percentage of public money on LA. It brought the spread down from five to four Cheap Solomon Thomas Jersey
, and continues to come in. Normally sportsbooks are rooting against New England, but that’s not going to be the case this weekend. The Patriots may be the No. 2 seed, but when they looked off, they have been very off. I think the Chargers will manage a win in the final seconds to keep the Patriots out of the AFC Championship—and the Super Bowl—for the upteenth time.

I wasn’t kidding, because now Ian Rapoport reports Brown and his agent still have not received permission to facilitate a trade. Rapoport also added that while the Steelers are exploring trade options, there is still dialogue between Brown and the Pittsburgh Steelers and the door isn’t shut on him returning. So the next question is: would all of this be for nothing? Since the NFL season ended 49ers Mike Person Jersey
, the hot topic has been about how Brown and the Steelers—or Ben Roethlisberger depending on if you want to go that route—can’t play nice. The Steelers have been rumored to want a first round pick for Brown and there hasn’t been a peep about a suitor being interested in giving up that real estate for what will be a 31-year old wide receiver. Brown has been plenty busy. He talked with Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Terrell Owens, followed the 49ers on Instagram, and tweeted the most cryptic of tweets suggesting he’s done with Pittsburgh. The Steelers also didn’t expect him back, but this is rather strange that they are not allowing a trade to be executed, or at least for Brown’s agent to poke around. They wanted a first round pick and no one bit, at least not yet and what we know about. Are the Steelers that stubborn to hold onto Brown and not allow him to seek out a trade because they can’t get their first round pick? Brown has made it clear he doesn’t want to be there http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-weston-richburg-jersey
, at least publicly. If everything is flipped back and Brown returns next year how long does he stay happy?More of this should come out when teams meet at the NFL Combine. Interested teams will probably run into Steelers executives to kick the tires on a possible deal. The fact no one has emerged as a trade candidate is strange, but it will be more concerning if no names were revealed after the Combine. The Steelers seem like they want to do this their way at the moment and don’t care about where Brown would want to go. That very well could change as time goes on. We’re at a point here where we have to wonder how serious Brown and/or the Steelers are. I don’t see him returning to Pittsburgh after everything that has happened in the last month, but if he were to, I wouldn’t know who made that locker room more dysfunctional: the Steelers or Brown.
