Monday Morning Digest: Who Can Win Post-Rodgers?

With Aaron Rodgers probably done for the year and the Kansas City Chiefs looking like the Chiefs again, are we back to a default of the New England Patriots solving their defensive issues to become Super Bowl champions? Who can emerge when the playoff picture has been thrown into such disarray? Also, jokes about how the Arizona Cardinals have a lot of old guys.

BR can fuck right off with getting rid of the minimize feature for the little picture-in-picture videos. Why the hell would I want a video to run in the corner of my eye as I read an article?

I'm stuck on HSPA+ mobile broadband for the moment while my provider works on problems with my ADSL. Any autoplay video can burn in a fiery hell, but the ones with no minimize function have their own special corner of the brimstone pit.

I'm not quite as angry as you guys are, but I also dislike autoplay videos and the minimize-to-the-corner feature.

I read that Chrome is being updated to prevent autoplay, but I'm doubtful that it will do anything about the minimizing bit.

Autoplay video is the popup ad of the 2010s

Yeah when I want to see a video I will click it myself.
So many websites try to be fancy or smart with autoplays and overlays... but it makes me just close the page.

Oops, meant to post this as a reply.

No one in the NFC North will likely be better than 10-6, and that division likely won't have any wild cards either.

first week in years I haven't read Tanier - the videos just got to me. Sorry man, still like your stuff, boooo BR

The silver lining is that they eventually figured out that everyone hated the sideshow format and stopped forcing everyone to use that. Hopefully they'll come around mandatory autoplay videos too.

I'm thankful I don't know what you're talking about. I didn't see anything of the sort, and I'm just on stock android and chrome
