This week, Gregg Easterbrook eulogizes NFL Primetime, has some thoughts on Black Monday, and asks why Norvell sent out the punt team on a 4th-and-1 from the Raiders 15. He also notes with some curiosity that the Falcons, Bengals and Titans all "rolled over and played dead" in Week 17, and picks USC in a "walkover."
