The Oakland Raiders have already earned their spot on 2017’s Mount Rushmore of Disappointment, so consider it fortuitous the skilled camera operators of Sunday Night Football provided rock artists the perfect image to work off. Here’s Derek Carr and Jack Del Rio looking at a Jumbotron replay showing us definitively that Carr fumbled the ball out of the end zone late in the fourth quarter against the Cowboys, a cruel turnover that ended Oakland’s season in fitting fashion.
Also fitting? Count me amongst the army of football fans who believe a fumble through the end zone does not warrant a change in possession. Back in October, we saw the same rule squelch a Jets’ comeback bid against the Patriots at the Meadowlands. Having possession stripped away when you’re that close to the end zone is akin to getting life in prison for a speeding ticket. The punishment simply does not fit the crime.

Why not get rid of the panel of voters who decide the MVP, and replace them by assigning a weighted score for basic stats (PPG, APG, RPG, BPG, etc.) and advanced metrics (PER, win shares, real plus-minus, etc.) and let the numbers speak for themselves? This would seem to get rid of various voter bias that inevitably occurs. If such a system could John Ross Youth jersey be created, who would you consider MVP in each of the last few seasons?

The report said Pence’s protest cost the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department more than $14,000, according to documents obtained by the organization.
