It's my long-awaited return to the B.S. Report, to discuss this year's NFL playoffs. Things get a little rushed because I had to go parent, but we do get in some discussion of the Divisional round as well as the recent history of upsets in the playoffs. Note that in the podcast, I said our Premium picks were 1-3 vs. the spread this weekend, 2-2 if you use the original KC-IND line. Actually, they were 2-2 vs. the spread (SD and SF), 3-1 with the original KC-IND line.

The Wild Card games get the "Instant Classic" treatment, and I go on and on about Andrew Luck's beard and Nick Foles' hair.

The Titans took their sweet time, I guess, but today they fired head coach Mike Munchak. Munchak had been with the organization as a player or coach since 1982, so in that way it's a pretty big move for the Titans. On the other hand, given their record the last couple years and the fact that Munchak's run-first strategies were stuck somewhere in 1976, not such a surprising move.

Hey everybody! Time for the third edition of our Playoff Challenge game. Here's how it works: You need to pick a roster consisting of 2 QB, 4 RB, 4 WR, and 2 TE. However, you must pick one player from each of the 12 playoff teams, no duplicates. Whoever has the highest fantasy score during the playoffs wins a copy of Football Outsiders Almanac 2014 and the 2014 KUBIAK fantasy football projections. Standard fantasy scoring, no PPR. Thanks again to former Scramble writer Ian Dembsky for the idea for this game.

The Colts have used more players than any other NFL team, the 2013 Eagles look a lot like the 2012 Redskins, and the 49ers are over-relying on Anquan Boldin so they can snooker the Packers. All this AND Andy Dalton jokes.

Deal getting finalized right now, per Jay Glazer.
No report on who the Buccaneers are getting at general manager, also a need since Tampa fired Mark Dominik as well as Greg Schiano, but this is the kind of hire the Bucs needed. Following up on the inexperienced Raheem Morris with straight-from-college Schiano was not a good recipe for success in my view. Previous reports had former Cal head coach Jeff Tedford becoming Lovie's offensive coordinator wherever he landed, for the big hire.

After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
