The 2016 NFL season has not made a lot of sense, as every seemingly strong team (save one) continues to show at least one significant weakness, and all have been smacked down just when they seemed to be rolling.  But as we head into the ninth week, a few things seem to be clearing up:

  1. The Patriots and Cowboys are the class of the league.
  2. The AFC is better than the NFC.
  3. Both conferences are imbalanced, as the NFC East and AFC West stand alone with 4 and 3 winning teams, respectively.
  4. Cam Newton has a poor fashion sense and doesn’t even understand that on him, unlike fellow fashion-forward athletes Von Miller and Russell Westbrook, it feels forced rather than a natural extension of who he, as a man, is.
  5. The Bears, though recent victors, Still Suck.
