If we're going to use the past two installments of Football Outsiders Almanac to trash the Dolphins for Jeff Ireland's continued employment, then it's only fair that we give them kudos for ending said employment. I, for one, am kind of shocked that this came on the heels of an 8-8 season; not because Ireland doesn't deserve it, but because accepting mediocrity has been entrenched in the franchise for the better part of two decades. So, again, kudos to Stephen Ross, and congratulations Dolphins fans. There's finally the potential for your long NFL nightmare to be over.

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.

Sam I Am, Hot Takes on Johnny Manziel, and a subtle Wade Phillips takedown of Jason Garrett highlight this month's best quotes.
