With an annual turnover of just over 50 percent of division winners since going to 32 teams, often the discussion is who will make the NFL playoffs as a new season comes around yet again.
For some teams, the NFL Playoffs are about as close as Jenny McCarthy and Tara Reid are these days. (Google it)
On this day we will breakdown which teams from each conference will miss the postseason and the only way they get in is by buying a ticket. We will also include their current NFL odds from each conference to illustrate their uphill battles.
Chip Kelly certainly did not leave Philadelphia (+2600 to win NFC) in better shape than he started with. The offensive line is a wreck, there is no dependable running back and the defense is not set, especially at cornerback. With Sam Bradford likely under center, good luck to first-year coach Doug Pederson.
If Los Angeles (+3300) loves star power and winners, attendance at the Rams game after the premier (Sept. 18) will be about the same if they made Lethal Weapon 5 with original cast. Whatever coaching magic Jeff Fisher had, it stayed in Tennessee and the current roster is dysfunctional on both sides of the ball. Not sure Tom Brady, let alone rookie Jared Goff could fix this offense.
The only people who did not know Jim Tomsula would be a failure as head coach in San Francisco (+4500) was the those who hired him. With the chasm between the 49ers and Seattle and Arizona in the NFC West roughly the same as driving distances from the Bay Area, hiring Kelly is no short term solution and the long term is debatable.
Tampa Bay (+4000) was not as good as team which started 6-6, nor as bad as crew which closed 0-6. If quarterback Jamesis Winston continues along right career path, there a possibility the Buccaneers could reach .500 in 2016, but too many more talented teams ahead of Tampa Bay that will fill playoff seats.
If Johnny Manziel is not good enough to secure a job with Cleveland (+7000 to win AFC), where does this jackal find work in this league? This franchise is going nowhere, making bad football decisions at every turn and hiring and promoting people that have little prior experience in their new jobs. Complete mess.
