Well, I didn't ever work there so don't know. One would assume the line from the chief actuary would go up maybe to CFO, then CEO, then the Board. If literally no one in senior management up to the...

Maybe Jani being out isn't totally a bad thing. They never would have gone for 2 if he'd been available, and now they're up by 4 rather than 3.

I'm not sure Seahawk fans hate the 49ers now so much as just mock them since the 49ers suck now. I think the hate may be shifting towards the Rams.

Well, at least it’s simple now. Seahawks win any game and they’re in. Otherwise need Eagles to lose. Nothing else matters except for seeding.

So the Chargers are really hoping either SEA loses or MN wins this weekend. Because if SEA wins and MN loses, the SEA/KC game means zip to SEA - they'll be locked into the 5 seed.

Yep, they should have gone for 2 on the first TD, rather than make the second one all or nothing.
