@   NEW ENGLAND Patriots franchise was known as the Boston Patriots until the 1971 NFL season.
#   New York Jets were the New York Titans from 1960-1962.

%   designated that this team was in the NFL before being placed in the AFC.  The old AFL { 1960-1969 } became the AFC in 1970.   The NFL teams were known as the NFC, beginning in the 1970 meaningless exhibitions.   The AFC and the NFL are the two conferences that comprises the National Football 🏈 League ( NFL).   The present day Baltimore Ravens were the Cleveland Browns, which, as with the San Francisco Forty-Niners, were initially launched in 1946 in the now defunct All America Football Conference.
^

Known as Houston Oilers from the third league labeled the American Football League, that hosted their inaugural season in 1960.

^ Called the Tennessee Oilers from 1996-1998.   Known as the Tennessee Titans since ( following ) the 1998 NFL season.

**  Known as Baltimore Colts in 1950, 1953-1983. The Baltimore Colts were a franchise in the All American Football 🏈 Conference from 1947-1949.  A franchise for the Baltimore Colts was granted for the 1950 NFL season, but it went broke and the franchise was moved.  The present Colts franchise started in the 1953 NFL season.   They moved to Indianapolis, Indiana, U.S.A prior to the 1984 nfl season.

+ Were the Los Angeles Chargers in the 1960 American Football 🏈 League (AFL). Appear to be moving back to Los Angeles for the 2017 NFL season.

~  Were the Dallas Texans from their 1960-1962 AFL seasons.
Franchise in Chicago from 1920-1959. Located in St. Louis in 1960-1987. At Phoenix from 1988-1994. Known as “Arizona” since 1994.

£ Franchise located in Cleveland from 1937-1945. Moved to Los Angeles for 1946-1994 NFL seasons.  Moved to St. Louis for 1995-2015 seasons.
€   Moved back to Los Angeles for the 2016 season.
£  Denotes original American Football 🏈 League franchise. One was intended for Minneapolis- St. Paul, but the owners balked. Minnesota was franchised in to the NFL in 1961.

“Original AFL” is a phrase frequently used.  The AFL this phrase referred to is not the “original AFL”.   This was the fourth AFL founded.  The first lasted only one year- in 1926.   There was an “AFL” in 1936-1937, and in 1940-1941.  The fourth AFL lasted from the 1960-1969 football 🏈 seasons.  This AFL is still sentimentally remembered by many.    Example:  One of the many reasons for this is that it is still the only league that did not be forced into bankruptcy because of the existence and aura of professionalism staged by the NFL.   When the NFL owners realized that they had to pay 💰 double, triple or even more to sign high draft choices, they “signed a peace pact” with the AFL owners.  They agreed that merge, beginning in the 1970 season.  Three NFL franchises would go to the American Football Conference { AFL from 1960-1969 } .  There were ten AFL franchises.   Miami was enfranchised in 1966.  Cincinnati was enfranchised in 1968.   The AFL gave up its label and agreed to be tagged the American Football 🏈 Conference (AFC).
The AFL isn’t to be confused with the Arena Football League, which exists now.  The Arena Football League is one of a few leagues begun by the NFL to expand its market.  These leagues were conceived and financed by the NFL also to prevent a new League from competing with the NFL.
¥  Once Los Angeles Raiders from 1982-1994 seasons.   Moved
back to Oakland.   In 2019, team may move to Las Vegas { UGH! } for the 2019 season.

Don’t bet.    These vegas lines are for my reference.   I’m composing a book in an attempt to prove that pro sports games are fixed.    I have been keeping tract of pro football closely in regards to the spreads since 2008.    I should have kept tract of the total points  bet upon.   There are other aspects that gamblers bet on.   In the Super Bowl, they bet on how many points will be scored in each quarter, how many FGs will be attempted, whether a certain QB will be injured and in which quarter:   it gets lunatic.   Home teams in CAPS.

2017 nfl season:  Jacksonviel vs. Los Angeles Chargers:  If  you bet on the Jacksonville Jaguars, you lost!!    nfl las vegas listed the Jags as 4.5 point favorites and won by 3 in overtime!    Since the nfl is a “gentleman’s game”, and the coaches sometimes play as gentlemen { unless they bet ! }, the coach usually does not direct his QB to attempt to “COVER”.   So the Jags got an interception and ran the interception back to the opponent’s { Los Angeles Chargers } two yard line.   Therefore, it is first down.   Rather than running the football in to the end zone, the coach directed the field goal kicker on to the field, where he kicked a field goal to win the game.   I wonder how many owners were mad about that.   Perhaps none.   Possibly, they made sure that the Jags would win by less than 4.5 points.

The nfl’s dallas cowboys vs. Atlanta falcons game was a “bait bet”.   “Bait bet” means a team that would feel will not win, or, will not win by a substantial margin of points.   nfl – las vegas set the falcons as 3 point favorites.  No way.   But the falcons won handily.   From that game of questionable integrity, the next time that there is a “bait bet”, the suckers will be bet massively and nfl-vegas will make sure that they get stung!

The New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons had met thirteen times previously.   Patriots now lead this series eight to six.  In 1998, the Falcons were 14-2 and trampled the Patriots, 41-10.    That was the first and only year the Falcons went to the super bowl until this year.  They have met four times since.   Patriots have won all four.    The last time that the two teams met was in 2013, and the game was won by the Patriots, 30-23.  They will meet in 2017.

Falcons beat the Green Bay pack 44-21 in the 2016 playoffs!

How about that!   One of my teams, New England Patriots, defeated the steelers twice ~ in the regular season and in the American Football Conference championship game.    On January 22, 2017,  the Patriots beat the steelers, 36 to 17.      Play by play:   http://www.pro-football-reference.com/boxscores/201701220nwe.htm#all_pbp       Dallas Cowboys destroyed the  pack { Green Bay } in Green Bay, week 6, this season.    Pack just won playoff game in Dallas { Arlington, Texas,  USA }.

New England Patriots beat Houston 27-0 without Tom Brady in week 4 this past season.   Patriots did not play well,  but beat the Houston Texans this 2016 NFL postseason { divisional playoffs }, 34 – 16.

Kansas City Chiefs lost 43:14, week 4, to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Pittsburgh.     Chiefs had a better record but lost at home to the steelers { divisional playoffs },  by a count of 18 to 16.

“Wild card week”, which was the first week of the 2016 season NFL playoffs:    Houston 27, Oakland 14               Pittsburgh 30, Miami 12

Green Bay 38, New York Giants 13           Seattle 26, Detroit 6

PRO FOOTBALL’S SPURRIOUS MYSTIQUE!       Dax Prescott’s rookie performance has drawn rave reviews as to how a rookie can play so very well against “the sophisticated defenses of the National Football League.   However, rookies have performed very well in the past as well as the present.           

Definition of spurious :  1)  of illegitimate birth:  bastard      2 :  outwardly similar or corresponding to something without having its genuine qualities :   false    3a :  of falsified or erroneously attributed origin :  forged  b :  of a deceitful nature or quality      THAT’S from the Merriam-Webster dictionary, which I trust!     Pro football { NFL } has a spurious mystique!     The spurious mystique of National Football League public relations is this:   that pro football players must take years to learn their position on the field because pro football is so sophisticated and complex.    However, that is NOT true.     The day after rookie quarterback Clint Longley of the Dallas Cowboys threw three touchdown passes to beat the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving Day in 1974, either the New York Times of the Wall Street Journal came out with an article by some sports writer entitled “pro football’s spurious mystique”.   The article explained that pro football is not difficult to learn and that NFL  defenses are NOT that sophisticated.   If a receiver is open, he is open.

So I decided to come up with a few examples from the top of my head:

Greg Cook, who played for the Cincinnati Bengals in the old American Football League { AFL } in 1969 and briefly in 1973.    The Bengals were in their second year of existence in the AFL.   Yet Greg Cook contributed to the Bengals 4-9-1 record by making very few mistakes.   He had a powerful arm and was a very accurate passer.

Ben Rothlisberger 2004 Pittsburgh Steelers:   As a rookie, led Pittsburgh to a 15-1 record.

Dax Prescott 2016 Dallas Cowboys:  led Cowboys to a 13-3 record.  13-2 from one standpoint as the season finale was a meaningless game for the Cowboys.  Also, Tony Romo played for a series in that game.

Tom Brady, New England Patriots 2000-   :   Started in 2001 when quarterback Drew Bledsoe got injured in week 2.   The Patriots wound up 14-3 when Brady was the starter as New England started the season 0-2.     The Patriots beat Oakland, Pittsburg and the St. Louis Rams in the postseason.

The 1951 Los Angeles Rams team had quite a number of rookies, yet they won the championship!!     Average age for the team was 25 1/2 years.

The 1987 Washington Redskins strike team beat the St. Louis Cardinals regulars that year, 28-21, on October 4, 1987!

Jim Plunkett, New England Patriots, in 1971:  Led the Patriots to an opening day upset of the Oakland Raiders on the opening day.   The Patriots were a poor team, but he led them to a 6-8 record, which was a 4 game improvement over 1970.   Tom Landry, the great coach of the Dallas Cowboys, and one of the greatest coaches in football history, had high compliments for Jim Plunkett as the two teams met that season.   Plunkett had a 16 year career in the NFL with the Patriots, Raiders and 49ers.

Roger Staubach ~ who came in 1969 to the Dallas Cowboys but did not start until game 9 of the 1971 season.    Behind Staubach, the Cowboys won all seven of their remaining regular games.   The Dallas Cowboys won the championship that season.   He played in 6 games in 1969 and is credited with a 1-0 record, his only start.    He played in 8 games in 1970 and is credited with a 2-1 record, his only 3 starts.   He won the starting job for good in the 7th game of the 1971 season.   His team won the next 10 games, 7 regular season, and defeated the Vikings, 49ers and Dolphins in the postseason.    He was selected to the Pro Bowl, one of pro football’s highest honors.

Mark Sanchez ~ with the New York Jets in 2009.    Although he has had mainly poor years, in his first NFL start, his team, the Jets, beat the Houston Texans, 20-7.   His team made the playoffs.  He is credited with an 8-7 record, so he did not start in one game.

Joe Montana, San Francisco 49ers ~ came up in 1979.   He only started 8 games in 1979-80.  But in 1981, he started all 16 games and led the 49ers to a 13-3 record.  He threw a touchdown {TD} in the NFC championship game in the final minute to defeat the favored Cowboys.   He then led his team to a 26-21 super bowl victory over the AFC CincinnatilBengals.

Andrew Luck did well in his rookie season in 2012 with the Indianapolis Colts.

Francis {Fran} Tarkenton, with the EXPANSION Minnesota Vikings in 1961, won his very first game and his team’s very first game over the Chicago Bears!!!    It was the first time an expansion team won their very first regular season game!     That feat has been accomplished twice since then.

The rookie quarterback David Carr for the Houston Texans in 2002.   He led his team is 19-10 victory over the Dallas Cowboys in his inaugural regular season game.

Jeff Hostetler – took the New York Giants to a Super Bowl victory following the 1990 season, following an injury to the starting QB, Phil Simms.

Kurt Warner was bagging groceries in 1999 after he was DROPPED by the Green Bay Packers and did not play.   He played in one game in 1998 for the St. Louis Rams.  He did not start.  He played in all the games in 1999.  He contributed mightily to the St. Louis Rams 16-3 record.   The Rams were 13-3 in the regular season, then defeated the Vikings, Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans for the NFL championship.

The year that Tom Matte played quarterback, he was 1-0.   It was in 1965, his 4th year in the NFL.

The Miami Dolphins own the longest home winning streak in nfl history at 27 games.   The Dolphins lost their first home game of the 1971 season to the New York Jets.   Then they won 6 in a row;  all 7 in 1972-1974; then lost a Monday night football games in week one at home against the silver and black, the Oakland Raiders.

The second longest home winning streak may belong to the Green bay packers at 26 games.

Do you have question regarding scores, dates, records for professional baseball { MLB }, football { NFL } and basketball { NBA }?    Now, you can get the answers in detail, from the entertainment AND the business perspective.    $60 donation per question.    Discounts for more than 4 questions.    It’s worth it to get the arguments settled.    EXAMPLES:   What and when was actually the first perfect season in professional football?   How many have there been?     When was the first NBA season?     When was the first championship game played between two different major baseball leagues?      How did American professional football originate?     How many professional baseball teams has the city of Cincinnati had?     How many pro football teams has the city of Los Angeles, California, U.S.A. had?    How many professional football leagues were labeled “THE AMERICAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE”?

Have the Cleveland Browns ever played the Seattle Seahawks?  The answer:     The question should actually be:    did the Cleveland Browns originate in 1999?    Answer is   “No!!!”    The Cleveland Browns are now the Baltimore RavensTeam vs. Team all-time records have to be clarified as to which professional team you are inquiring about.   The Baltimore Ravens originated in 1946 as the Cleveland Browns of the defunct All American Football Conference.    That “conference” lasted 4 years, then went broke.      The National Football League { NFL } tries to maintain the impression, and influences authors, that the “conference” went broke because the Cleveland Browns won all 4 of the titles.    However, the Boston Celtics of the current NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION { NBA } won EIGHT titles in a row from the 1958-1959 through the 1965-1966 season!    Boston Celtics won the NBA title ELEVEN times in the 13 seasons from 1956-1957 through 1968-1969.    Therefore, that argument will not fly.    The team was one of three teams – the others were the San Francisco 49ers and the Pittsburgh Steelers – that were incorporated in to the National Football League in 1950.  The NFL does not recognize All America Football Conference { in business from 1946-1949 }  results as official [the business aspect ].   Therefore, in Team versus Team rivalries, the Cleveland BrownsBaltimore Ravens are supposed to be recognized as first beginning in 1950.   

The Chicago Bears {NFL} and New York Giants {NFL}  met recently.  The Bears lead the all-time team vs. team series 33-22-2.     These two teams have met 8 times in the postseason.     Chicago is 5-3 vs. NY Giants in postseason.     Those results are included in the 33-22-2 lead the Bears have in the rivalry.

1932 actually:    Chicago Bears and Portsmouth Spartans { now the Detroit Lions finished tied for first at 7-1-6.    The NFL decided to play an indoor game on an 80 yard field.    Chicago won 9-0.

In the 1933 championship game of the NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE { NFL }, the Chicago Bears won.  Only 9 points separated these teams as they met thrice in 1933.  For the championship Chicago 23, New York Football Giants 21.
1934:   Giants won the famous “sneaker game”. Giants were behind 13-3 early in the 3rd Q.  Giants wound up winning 30-13.
1941:    The Bears were a powerful team in the early 1940s.   They defeated the Giants, 37-9 for the NFL championship after smearing GB, 33-14.    Both the the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears were 10-1 in 1941.
1946:   Bears again defeated the New York Giants for the NFL championship, 24-14.
1956:   New York Giants won the NFL championship over the Bears, 47-7. Frank Gifford likes to say that professional football got recognized in 1956, not as late as 1958.   He should;   it is more pleasant.   The New York Giants lost in 1958 to the Baltimore Colts, 23-17 in overtime.
1963:    Chicago Bears won the NFL championship over the Giants 14-10 even though Y.A. Tittle shredded the Bears defense with his passing.  This was the fifth of 5 consecutive losses in the battle of the NFL championship for the Giants.   Giants lost in ’58, ’59, ’61, ’62, ’63.
1985:   Bears 21, Giants 0 in divisional playoff. The Bears would win the Super Bowl that year, compiling an 18-1 record overall.
1990:   Giants 31, Bears 3 in divisional playoff. Giants pushed the Bears around and rushed for a lot of yardage. The Giants would eventually win the Super Bowl.
The  National Football League {NFL} Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys played Thursday night, November 29, 2007.    Brett Favre wound up 0-9 in Dallas.     Green { ha ha ha!   I typed “green” because, when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came in to the National Football League for their inaugural 1976 season, the Green Bay Packers football team put up in their advertised game circular “Tampa”.   This enraged the fans of Tampa Bay as the team was enfranchised as “Tampa Bay“.    What occurred was that the public relations staff put out a statement:   “Don’t worry.   When the Packers come here to play here, we will call them green”.   Ha ha ha ha ha ha.   He he he he he! }  now leads the series 18-17;   14-13 in regular season play.   The two teams have played 8 times in the playoffs { often times labeled “postseason” }.    Cowboys  are 4-4 vs. the Green Bay Pack in the playoffs.    Cowboys won 37-27 at home on a Thursday night in 2007.    It was a game that gave a black eye to the NFL and the cable networks.   Many could not see the game solely because of the limitless greed of the cable companies.   Green Bay won 45-17 in Green Bay in 1997 and 41-20 in 2004 – again in GB.   But that game was in Green Bay.   Dallas has won 11 of the last 13 meetings. {??}    They had won 9 straight at Texas Stadium.   In fact, Packers quarterback Brett Favre has never won a game at Texas Stadium.   Dallas won 9 in a row at home vs. the Pack from 1990 through 2007.   Ended in 2013.    Matt Flynn played the game.   Aaron Rodgers was injured.

The two teams have had some historic games:   The 1966 National Football League { NFL } championship:  Green Bay 34, Dallas 27.   The Packers were terrified as they had not stopped Dallas after taking a 14-0 lead.   Dallas was on the Packer one.  Glen Boeke, a Dallas guard moved.   After the five yard illegal procedure penalty was assessed, quarterback Don Meredith attempted to complete a TD pass.   A Packer had Meredith in the grasp.  Meredith’s heave was underthrown and packer cornerback Tom Brown intercepted in the end zone.

1967 NFL championship:   Green Bay Packers 21, Dallas Cowboys 17.    “The fastest game ever played”.    It was minus 15 Fahrenheit in Green Bay and there was a breeze blowing.     On the last play of the game, Quarterback Bart Starr ran the ball in behind the block of right guard Jerry Kramer.   If Dallas had won those two National Football League championship games, they would probably have 7 Super Bowl titles, not 5.    They probably would have beaten the Kansas City Chiefs and the Oakland Raiders,  the teams the Pack defeated 35-10 and 33-14, respectively,  in Super Bowls One and Two.   And the Packers would have only two Super Bowl titles, not four.   This is interesting. And Dallas might be a little better known and Green Bay might be not as well known.   Tom Landry was one of the greatest coaches, if not the greatest coach in National Football League history.   His teams nearly won both games.   But almost does not count in professional sports.  No one remembers whom finished second.  In 1968, the Dallas Cowboys were a very good team and the Pack was not back.  But the Dallas faithful groaned as the Packers won, 28-17.
In 1970,
Dallas defeated the Pack for the first time.  It was in Dallas on Thanksgiving Day.   After the Pack blocked a punt and scored a Field Goal, Dallas controlled the game and won 16-3.
In 1972,
Dallas was defending their Super Bowl { the championship game of the National Football League } VI title.   They played the Pack in Milwaukee.   Even though Dallas was the better team – at least in the early part of that season – the Pack defeated Dallas on a Field Goal by Chester Marcol.   The score was 16-13.
In 1975, the 0-4 Packers came from 9-17 down to defeat the 4-0
Cowpokes in Dallas, 19-17.

1982:   strike year divisional playoff:   Dallas 37, GB 26.
1993:    Dallas won, 36-14 in Green Bay.  They also won a NFC divisional playoff game that year.  The score was 27-17.
1994:  Cowboys won 42-31 on Thanksgiving Day.  Also won a divisional playoff vs. the Pack, 35-9.
1995:  Dallas defeated GB 34-24, in Dallas, during the regular season. Also beat the Packers for the NFC championship.
Also,  the Cowboys defeated the Packers at home in 1996,  21-6,  and also in 1999.
2004:   Cowboys lost at GB 41-20 in 2004.   First loss to Pack since ’89.
Last loss at home for the Cowboys vs. the Pack was in 1989 – until 2013.   Both teams finished last in 1988, as they met twice in 1989.   They are in different divisions.   The format was different from 1978 until 1995, I believe.
2016:    Cowboys lost at home after a thrilling comeback.   Aaron Rodgers is the most accurate QB I have seen on a week after week;  year after year basis.

In 2007, the New England Patriots finally defeated the Redskins for the first time in 35 years.  There were years  { a good example:   1978, 1996, 2003 and one could argue 1984 }  when the Patriots had a better team than the ‘Skins.   The Pats had not defeated the Washington Redskins since 1972.    Patriots finally won in 2007.    That game is still talked about, as the Patsies were one of the worst teams in the National Football League.   The Pats, directed by QB Jim Plunkett, were down 14-0 and engineered a comeback.  They were ahead 24-21 with less than two minutes to go.  The Redskins kicked a Field Goal with two minutes or less to go.    The Patriots ran in to kicker Curt Knight.    Coach George Allen was a good coach but this time he “violated” a coach’s rule:  never take points off the scoreboard.  The ‘Skins didn’t get a first down and attempted another FG. It was wide.   They forced the Patriots to punt.   Bill Malenchalk blocked the punt and fell on it in the opponent’s end zone for a touchdown!   The officials ruled it a safety.   Warner Wolf of then WTOP showed an official on camera raising his hands for a touchdown.    A Patriots player stood in front of the official and made the sign for a safety.   The official hesitated, then made the signal that it was a safety!   The Redskins got a free kick and drove within field goal range.  The field goal attempt was wide right but barely wide right. The Patriots had to “free kick”.    The Redskins couldn’t pick up a first down.   Field goal attempt by redskins kicker Curt Knight of 50 yards was wide.  The Redskins then won 9 in a row, while the Patsies lost their next 9 in a row.   The Redskins wound up going to the Super Bowl.    The Patriots were their usual “Patsies”, and finished 3-11, following a 2-1 start.
The New England Patriots 52-7 triumph in Foxboro, Massachusetts, U.S.A, over the Redskins in 2007 was the  fourth worst defeat in franchise history for the Redskins.

The Detroit Lions had not won in Washington until 2013.   They had lost 21 straight away vs. them, including 3 postseason games.   They last won away vs the Redskins in 1935, 17-7, when the Redskin franchise was in Boston.

9:  GB vs. Philadelphia   Ended in 2010

The Atlanta Falcons had their inaugural season in 1966.   The team is only 2-14 vs. the Baltimore – Indianapolis Colts.   This record by the Colts against the Falcons means that the Colts have the best team vs. team mark for more than ten games.      Atlanta Falcons did not win away vs. the Colts until the 2011 season, when Peyton Manning was lost for the season because of a neck injury.      The same Falcons are only 2-13-1 vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers.        They did not win at home vs. the Steelers until 2006.       San Diego Chargers 1-9 vs. Atlanta Falcons all time.    Their only win was in Atlanta in 1988 and the game was played in Atlanta.

17:  the number of consecutive losses within their division by the Oakland Raiders until they defeated the Kansas City Chiefs on November 25, 2007.   This may be a National Football League record.

12:  Before Oakland defeated Denver 34-20, on December 2, 2007, they had a 12 game losing streak at home vs. divisional opponents.    The NFL is a business!   The Cleveland Browns are now the Baltimore Ravens!   The Cleveland Browns launched just prior to the 1999 NFL season is NOT the old Cleveland Browns.   But the NFL tries to make you believe that the new expansion franchise has been tied to the original Cleveland Browns of 1946;  the team that was one of three to come to the NFL in 1950.   NOTE:  The team vs. team records of the Cleveland Browns Vs. the Miami Seahawks-Baltimore Colts of the old All-American Football Conference {AAFC} are not here yet.   In 1949 or 1950, the old AAFC folded and 3 teams joined the NFL:   The San Francisco 49ers, Baltimore Colts and the Cleveland Browns.   Presumably, the Buffalo Bills, New York Yanks, Los Angeles Dons and the rest of the franchises went broke and the 3 mentioned above showed promise.    However, the 1950 Baltimore Colts {NFL} folded following one season.   The Colts went 1-11.   The Colts fans protested and the NFL wound up awarding another different franchise with the same name in 1953.   The Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Colts and the San Francisco 49ers do NOT include the games that they played in the old AAFC in their record books played from 1946-1949.   The Baltimore Colts from 1953 { to Indianapolis, Indiana, U.S.A. in 1984 } through to the present are NOT related to the 1946-1950 AAFC and NFL Baltimore Colts.    The Boston Yanks 1944-49 { New York Bulldogs in 1949, New York Yanks in 1950-51 },  1933 Pittsburg Pirates { renamed the Steelers in 1934 or 1940 depending upon the source },  1943 Pittsburg – Philadelphia “Steagles”, 1944 Pittsburg – St. Louis { Card-Pitt }, 1932-1936 Boston Redskins, which became the Washington Redskins in 1937, the 1920-1932 Portsmouth Spartans, which became the Detroit Lions in 1934, 1950 Baltimore Colts, 1952 Dallas Texans, 1950-1951 New York Yanks, the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1930-1944 { the “Tigers” in 1944, merged in to the Boston Yanks in 1945 }, the 1950 Baltimore Colts are NOT included in the NFL record and fact book.  But the 1920 Chicago Staleys, which were renamed the Bears the following year and the 1920 Chicago Cardinals ARE included.   The teams they played are NOT included in the record and fact book with the exception of the Green Bay Packers, the Chicago { then St. Louis in 1960 then Phoenix in 1988 then Arizona in 1994 Cardinals } and the Bears, as they played one another.  Again, the NFL is a business, as are all of the “professional” leagues.  The present Cleveland Browns are NOT the Cleveland Browns of 1946-1995.   The old Cleveland franchise was moved to Baltimore for the 1996 NFL season.  The team became the “ravens”.   So in actuality, the Cleveland Browns franchise has won two Super Bowls, not zero!!   The NFL, in their “nfl record and fact book”, DELETED the 1950 Baltimore Colts from their team vs. team rivalries in 1974, 1975, 1976 or 1977.   It should be further noted that the Colts home games were played at Baltimore Memorial stadium.   The 1950 Baltimore Colts home games were played at Municipal stadium, Baltimore.   – Nextaxpro

HERE’S A FEW REAL TOUGHIES.  THESE ARE FREE.  I CAN ANSWER ANY TOUGH PRO SPORTS QUESTION.   IT’LL COST YA.  BUT IT’S WORTH IT.   I’M AN ARGUMENT SETTLER, SO MAKE SURE YOU DON’T BET WITH WELCHERS!!
INTERESTING FACTS:   Name THE WILD CARD teams that have won the SUPER BOWL.
ANSWER:   A bit tricky is this question.   NFL rules designated teams as the wild card, beginning with the 1970 postseason.   In 1969, the merged American Football League held a playoff scenario of second place vs. the first place of the other division.   That league had two divisions.   They called them “divisional playoffs”, but, it involved second place teams, which meets the criteria of a wild card team.  Moreover, the NFL and AFL had already agreed to merge.   In 1990, the NFL initiated a format that involved the divisional winner with the least best record having to play in the first week of the postseason. Six teams, { a wild card team, or second place team or team with the “worst” divisional winner record} have gone on to win it all.  They are:

1969:   Kansas City 13, NY Jets  6  [ NY ]

Kansas City Chiefs 17, Oakland 7 ( O ) 
Kansas City 23, Minnesota  7    Super Bowl IV
1980:  Oakland 27, Houston  7   [H]
Oakland 14, Cleveland 12    [C]
Oakland 34, San Diego 27   [SD]
Oakland 27, Philadelphia 10
1997:  Denver 42, Jacksonville 17 [D]
Denver 14, Kansas City 10 [KC]
Denver 24, Pittsburgh 21   [P]

2006: Indianapolis 23,  Kansas City  8 [I]
Indianapolis 15, Baltimore 6 [B]

2007:   New York Giants 24, Tampa Bay 14 {T}
New York Giants  21, Dallas      17 {D}
New York Giants  23, Green Bay   20  {GB}  OT
New York Giants  17, New England 14
The only teams that won all of their games on the road AND played THREE on the road were the 1980 Oakland Raiders and the 2005 Pittsburgh Steelers 
  

The number one seeds ~~ teams with the best record in their respective conference that have lost in the first round of the postseason since 1969.    Neither the NFL nor the media referred to them as “seeds” until the 1980s or 1990s.   1969 is not included because the American Football League, in their final season, set up a bogus “second place vs. first place playoff.   The second place teams were not labeled “wild card”,  nor “3rd seed”, nor “4th seed”.     

1970:   Minnesota Vikings was 12-2.   Vikings lost to San Francisco 49ERS, 17-14, in the first round of the playoffs { all the post-season teams played in the first week of the playoffs then.   Wild card playoffs commenced in 1978 }.         

1979:   San Diego Chargers team was 12-4.   San Diego was beaten, 17-14, by the Houston Oilers { now Tennessee Titans }, in the first round.   Pittsburg was also 12-4, but San Diego was “awarded” the number 1 seed because they had beaten the Steelers when they met in the 1979 regular season.    Also, in the National football conference, the Dallas Cowboys had the best record in the NFC, but were beaten 21-19 by the Los Angeles Rams.  

1980:   Atlanta Falcons team was the top seed ~  defeated by Dallas 30-27.    Atlanta was the top seed based upon a head vs. head victory during the 1980 regular season.   Philadelphia eagles finished ahead of Dallas based upon better net points in division games { plus 84 net points to Dallas plus 50.   The nfl never tells how they come up with this stuff:  “net points in division games ” is the first time the nfl ever used that criterion! }    1985:   Los Angeles { Oakland from 1690-1981, 1995-2016 } Raiders team was tied with Miami with identical 12-4 records.   Los Angeles Raiders and Miami did not meet during the 1985 regular season.   The Raiders were possibly the #1 seed based upon a better conference record:  9-3 vs. Miami’s 8-4.   Raiders lost to New England, 27-20.  

1987:  San Francisco 49ers were the top seed.   Minnesota Vikings 36, SF 24  

1992:   Pittsburg Steelers were the #1 seed at 11-5.   Pittsburg was counted as the better record based upon their conference record of 10-2 to Miami‘s 9-3 and San Diego Chargers 9-5.   Buffalo 24,  Pittsburg 3 1995:   Kansas City Chiefs finished with a 13-3 record.   Beaten by the Indianapolis { formerly Baltimore } Colts, 10-7.     

1996:   Denver Broncos finished the regular season 13-3.   Denver was eliminated by the Jacksonville Jaguars, 30-27.   This is considered one of the largest upsets of all of the history of professional football, as Denver had a great team and Jacksonville was an expansion team, in their second season in the league.  

1997:  Kansas City finished 13-3 again.   But, Denver 14, KC 10.   2016:  Dallas eliminated by Green Bay, 34-31, in Dallas { Irving, TX, U.S.A }.    2000:   Tennessee Titans was 13-3.   Beaten by Baltimore Ravens, 24-10.    2005:   Indianapolis Colts team was 14-2.    Pittsburg Steelers won over Indianapolis, 21-18.    2006:   San Diego Chargers finished 14-2.   Eliminated by New England, 24-21     2007:   Dallas Cowboys were the #1 seed in the National Football Conference { NFC }, by finishing 13-3.   Eliminated by the New York Giants, 21-17 at home.    2013:   Dallas Cowboys finished with the best record in the NFC at 13-3.   Eliminated in the second round by the Packers, 34-31 by a last second 50 yard FG.   Dallas did not have to play in the first round of the playoffs, per the set up that began in 1990. 

New York Giants played in East Rutherford, New Jersey, U.S.A,  beginning in the 1975 or 1976 season.

TRIVIA, PARTICULARLY SPORTS TRIVIA IS VERY INTERESTING AND I GET ANSWERS!   It sometimes takes a few minutes, or even up to two hours, but I do get answers for all!

The New York Giants did NOT make the playoffs at the close of the 1988 season. The reason is because the Los Angeles Rams had a better conference record.  The Rams did beat the Giants, but the Giants defeated the New Orleans Saints. The Rams and the Saints split the regular season.  Los Angeles Rams, New Orleans and the Giants all had 10-6 records in 1988.    Rams were 8-4 within the conference;  Giants 9-5;  New Orleans 6-6.  Hence, it could be argued that the previous year’s record affects your fortunes the following season.  if the “G-men” hadn’t finished last in their division in ’87, they wouldn’t have had as many games within their conference.    Not a fair standard because the Giants played a different number of “conference games”,  probably due to finishing last the previous year.   They had a different schedule making criterion then.

 The Giants and the Buccaneers got gyped out of the playoffs in 2010 on some terminology that the NFL  called “strength of victory” {!!}   WHAT is THAT??   I’ve done all the possibilities and still cannot make any sense out of this.
    
Jacksonville Jaguars have not defeated the New England Patriots in the regular season.   But they won once in the post season, defeating the Pats 25-10 in 1998.   Patriots have taken 3 from Jacksonville in postseason play for an overall 7-1 record vs. the Jags.

Kansas City Chiefs 8-1 all time vs. the Washington Redskins
Miami 9-3 all time vs. the Saint Louis – Card Pitt – St. Louis -Phoenix – Arizona Cardinals franchise.
Giants 10-4 vs. the Chiefs
Giants 6-2 vs Dolphins [92-80]   Giants lost 23-13 at home vs the Dolphins in Miami’s perfect season.
New York Jets 8-4 vs. Green Bay Pack.Jets 8-2 vs. the Minnesota Vikings.   Both losses in Minneapolis, Minnesota.     Minnesota Vikings 0-5 away at the home of the New York Jets { East Rutherford, New Jersey }.

New York Jets 10-1 vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Won 8 straight over Tampa.   Tampa never won away vs. the Jets in 7 attempts.

Jets 3-10 vs. the San Francisco 49ers.

New York Jets have no good fortune vs. the Philadelphia Eagles.   They have always lost.  Now 0-10 all time vs. the Eagles.  Next game will be in 2019 unless the format schedule changes….

Atlanta Falcons 9-2 vs. San Diego Chargers.

Pittsburg Steelers 20-5 vs the New York Jets all time, which includes 2 playoff wins – in 2004 and in 2010.   Was 16-2 from 1970 through ’05 or ’06.    From one standpoint, even more remarkable than Raiders 17-0-1 vs. Denver, or Miami’s 20-0 vs. Buffalo from ’70 -’79.   Pittsburgh’s record was over a string of 37 years, not 10.         Pittsburg Steelers vs. Tampa Bay.
Cleveland Browns  33-9-1 vs. the Washington Redskins.

Dallas Cowboys were 0-5 vs. the Cleveland BrownsBaltimore Ravens since 1991 – until November 6, 2016.  As discussed previously, the Baltimore Ravens are NOT a new team.   The Cleveland fans wanted to be rid of owner Arthur Modell.   So they moved the franchise to Baltimore.   Modell is still the owner.

Los Angeles Rams formerly Cleveland Rams formerly Los Angeles Rams formerly St. Louis Rams are 2-11 vs. Miami Dolphins all time.

St. Louis – Arizona Cardinals have lost their last 8 in Atlanta.    Last time beating them in Atlanta was in 1994.

NOTE:  The allegation has been made that the Los Angeles Clippers { formerly Buffalo Braves – San Diego Clippers } deliberately lost their season finale in April 2006 to the Memphis Grizzlies in order to play the Denver Nuggets.  That is only possible if the tie breaking rules would’ve favored Memphis had the Grizzlies won the game.   Clippers losing made them 1-3 vs. the Grizzlies for the season.   Both teams won their following game, which was the finale of the 2005-2006 NBA season.   Dallas Mavericks were hot, and eliminated Memphis, 4 games to zero.   The Clippers were the #6 seed, but the #3 seed was the winner of the weak Northwest Division, which was the Denver Nuggets.   The Clippers defeated Denver, four games to one, then lost to Phoenix in the following round of the playoffs, 4 games to 3.

The game I will never forget.   By Rocky:

It was actually a professional basketball game, albeit I am the most interested in professional American football.   There are many games I will never forget in American pro football.   But the game that I will NEVER forget was played on April 17, 1977, in the National Basketball Association { often times called the NBA }.   It was  a playoff game between the Boston Celtics and the Philadelphia 76ers { often called “Sixers” by their fans }.    The “sixers”  came from the folded American basketball association { ABA } and their initial season in the NBA was the 1975-76 NATIONAL BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION {NBA} season.    The Celtics had won the NBA championship for the 13th time { 1957-1959-66, 1968, 1969, 1974, 1976 previously };   the last championship was following the previous  season – 1975-76.   The Celtics were not excellent during the 1976 – 1977 season through a combination of injuries and subpar play from their stars.   The 76ers were playing good basketball.   They had a number of stars including Caldwell Jones, Darrell Dawkins, Sedaile Threat and a player you may well have heard of:   “doctor J”, which stood for Doctor Julius Irving, a multi-talented athlete.    I think he had a doctorate degree, but I do not know which subject.

The Celtics 🍀  were behind for nearly the entire game.   The “Sixers”  moved out very quickly to a 14-4 lead.   Just before time expired at the end of the first half, a Celtic threw up the basketball from half court.   The basketball hit nothing but net!   But the Celtics were still down 67-59, at halftime.

In the second half, it was frustrating, as the 76ers were continually scoring buckets and being fouled, resulting frequently in 3 point plays.    But the Celtics 🍀  gradually stormed back.   Sidney Wicks, with three or less minutes to go in the game, moved to all alone “in the paint”.   He made spectacular dunks and helped tie the game with less than one minute to play.    Boston took a two point lead on a Boston basket.   The camera replayed a sixer fan slamming his fist in anger and frustration.   The Sixers then tied the game.    John Havlicek, one of the better of many of the Celtics 🍀 of all time, threw the basketball over the head of one of his teammates and the basketball sailed out of bounds on the other side of the playing court.  

Then, Julius Erving made a VERY good 😊 play, scored and was fouled.   The “DR J” missed the free throw!     There were six seconds left in the game.     Boston inbounded, Jo Jo White shot and missed.   McDonald got the rebound.   He shot, but the “Sixers” blocked his shot!    Jo Jo White grabbed the basketball and tossed it in the general direction of the hoop.  The basketball 🏀 hit nothing but the net!   The buzzer  🔊   sounded.     Both referees signaled the bucket as “good “,  meaning that Jo Jo White caused the basketball to leave his fingers prior to the buzzer ringing!   The Celtics 🍀  ran for the exits.   Brent Musburger, one of the announcers, said:  “and the Celtics know that they got to get out of there “.    I jumped off of my sofa and yelled the loudest war whoops I have ever shouted in my entire life,   The Celtics 🍀  ,   heavy underdogs in the series, had beaten Philadelphia in Philadelphia.    Next morning, I greeted my boss with those same war whoops.   My boss said  “Oh, they were lucky”.     After such an astounding victory, it should have gone better for the Celtics.  But they lost in 7 games to a powerful Philadelphia Sixers team.  Eventually, the Sixers lost in 6 games to the Portland Trailblazers behind Bill Walton.

Now, as you know, I am a huge pro football fan.  The second most memorable game that I will never forget was a pro football between my Minnesota Vikings and the Washington Redskins.  It was the first week of the 1972 regular season and it occurred on the first week of the NFL season;  a Monday night game, in September, 1972.

THIS SPEAKS TO INFIDELS TODAY AS ALWAYS.  THEY SERVE THE DEVIL WITH ALL OF THEIR STRENGTH AS THEY HAVE FROM CAIN:

Accounts from History:

“Until this moment I thought there was neither a God nor a Hell.  Now I know and feel that there are both, and I am doomed to perdition by the just judgment of the Almighty.”     (**Sir Thomas Scott)
** A noted infidel by the name of Adams cried out these last words, “I’m lost!  Lost!   Lost!   I’m Damned!   Damned!  Damned forever!”   His agony was so terrible that he tore his hair from his head as he passed into eternity.
** Charles IX — devout papist — was responsible for ordering the great massacre that took place on St. Bartholomew’s Day.   { CATHOLICS MURDERING Protestant born again Christians.  – consult the Rock }   On his own dying day, Charles cried, “What blood!   What murders!  I know not where I am.  How will all this end?  What shall I do?   I am lost forever…I know it!”

** voltaire, upon his deathbed, cried out, “Oh, Christ!  Oh, Jesus!   I must die abandoned by God and men”.   His condition was so frightening that his infidel associates were afraid to approach his bedside.  voltaire said to his doctor, “I am abandoned by God and man.   I will give you half of what I am worth, if you will give me six months of life.”  The doctor replied,  “Sir, you cannot even live six weeks.”    voltaire immediately answered, “Then I shall go to Hell, and you will go with me!”

“Devils are in the room ready to drag my soul down to Hell!   It’s no use looking to Jesus now;  it’s too late!”    (**Brown)

(**Francis Newport)  “What argument is there now to assist me against matters of fact?   Do I assert that there is no Hell  while I feel one in my own bosom?   That there is a God I know, because I continually feel the effect of His (W)wrath.    That there is a (H)hell, I am equally certain, having received an earnest of my inheritance already in my own breast.   Oh!  That I was to lie a thousand years upon the fire that is never quenched to purchase the (F)favor of God, and be reunited to Him again!   But it is a fruitless wish.  Millions and millions of years will bring me no nearer to the end of my torments than one poor hour!    O Eternity!  Eternity!   Oh!   The insufferable pangs of (H)hell!    Oh Eternity!  Forever and forever!”

DYING WORDS OF SAINTS AND UNSAVED

muslim woman:  “What did you do to our daughter?” asked a muslim woman, whose child had died at 16 years of age. “We did nothing”, answered the missionary.  “Oh, yes, you did,” persisted the mother. “She died smiling.  Our people do not die like that.”  That girl had been witnessed to; accepted The True Christ and believed on Him a few months before.  Fear of death had gone.  Hope and joy had taken its place.

Anton LeVey, author of the Satanic Bible and high priest of the religion dedicated to the worship of Satan. Some of his famous quotes are “There is a beast in man that needs to be exercised, not exorcised” His dying words were “Oh my, oh my, what have I done, there is something very wrong…there is something very wrong….”

* A fashionable lady attended revival meetings at the Morgan Street church, Chicago.  Deep conviction settled on her soul. She wept and said she would like to find peace, but was not ready to give up the pleasures of the world. To drown her convictions, she absented herself from the house of God.  Time hurried on and soon she was on her death bed.  Realizing her condition, she sent for a friend who had attended the meetings with her and who had listened to the spiritual pleadings and found the joy of pardoning love.  This friend hurried to the bedside of the dying one.  As she entered the room{,} the dying woman looked at her with eyes of terror, and grasping her hand she exclaimed, “Oh, stay with me till I am gone!  I am dying and going to hell!  Tell Bro. C__ (the minister) to preach hell as he has never preached it before, for I am going to hell!”.  Then, pointing to the wardrobe, she said, “Go there and you will see what has ruined my soul.”.  She opened the door and saw the rich, fashionable clothing and turned again to the side of the dying woman, who raised herself up and sang the hymn she had so often heard at the meeting:

“Parting to meet again at the Judgment, Parting to meet no more here below; Oh, how sad the thought to thee, Traveler to eternity, Parting to meet again at the Judgment.
As the last word fell from her lips she fell back on the pillow and her soul passed into eternity to meet the God whose mercy she had trifled with and turned away for the gaudy toys of this earth. Dear reader, take warning from this sad death. Turn away from the vanities of earth and give God your heart and life’s service, and eternal happiness shall be yours.

Oliver Greene once told of a man on his deathbed who suddenly began to scream in terror: “Pull me up in the bed! My feet are burning! I am sliding into Hell!” { It’s a fact. I read it in one of his booklets. Oliver Greene was a tremendous Hellfire preacher. He suffered a stroke, then preached on the radio. He went to be with THE LORD in 1973, I believe. Yours truly HATES the devil’s noise, that is, rock noise, especially the noise since 1959.  But I NEVER destroy any thing.  Some pagans were so CONVICTED:   HEBREWS 4:12, JEREMIAH 23:29, et cetera^, that they would smash their radios { or whatever radio was on! } or YANK the wires of the automobile radio out!! – Nextaxpro }

A website denied that infidels die in horror beyond expression. It stated that charles darwin, the infamous NOTORIOUS EVIL-lutionist, died, on April 19, 1882, a “peaceful death” following fainting spells and a state of “unconsciousness” the previous few days.   https://infidels.org/library/historical/george_foote/infidel_deathbeds.html

That is a LIE! There is NO WAY, at the end of his infidelic, rebellion against GOD, stating that we are animals, hence, the law of the jungle, that he died any other than a HORRIFIC, DREADFUL beyond any and all exaggeration, as he entered the volcano of HELLFIRE: Psalm 16:10, Isaiah 5:14, Mark 9:41-48, Revelation 14:9-11, 20:10-15 – death. The infidels CONCEALED his ANGUISH beyond description. darwin NEVER confessed Christ; only said that he was not afraid of death from the beginning of his twilight years.  It could NOT been any other end. darwin was a REPROBATE, hence, BEYOND REPENTANCE and getting right with THE LORD JESUS. For that hater of THE LORD, it was too late for him.  Way beyond doubt, darwin died the way ALL infidels die: expressable GRIEF and writhing in such horror, that his infidel associates SHAMEFULLY COVERED UP ALL of his GRIEF, REMORSE AND SHRIEKING HORROR!   “A Man may Live a Lie – but His Deathbed Tells the Truth.”

Altamont, the infidel, labeled “libertine” by believers. Altamont is NOT to be confused with the rolling stones concert on December 6, 1969, in which a hell’s angel thug stabbed one of the girl attendees. Neither his first name, nor his date of birth nor his biography can be found on the net.

Saladin was the muslim general who inflicted the worst defeat that the catholic crusaders ever suffered. It was at the battle of Hattim, near Tiberias, in present day Israel, on July 4, 1187. Less than 6 years later, on February 19, 1193, Saladin’s dying words, as a muslim were: “my life is only the tattered coat that I wear!” To ALL ALL ALL muslims. You are lost! You do not have THE LORD JESUS CHRIST! ALL OF YOU ARE GOING TO GO TO HELL IF YOU DO NOT REPENT AND RECEIVE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AS YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOR. Saladin was a fanatic, throughly devoted follower of allah, the CHIEF DEVIL of the kabba!!!!

The black pope runs the jesuits behind the scenes.  pope pius IX, the black pope, his jesuits and John Wilkes Booth, the jesuit roman papist who assassinated and shouted “sic semper tyrannis”. booth broke his leg, rode to “doctor” mudd’s house. “Doctor” mudd was a jesuit.  mary surratt was a jesuit and allowed her house to be headquarters for the plot. george atzerodt helped booth to escape.  davey herold was assigned to murder vice president Andrew Johnson.  booth was killed 12 days after he murdered then president Abraham Lincoln. Around booth’s neck was a medal of the queen of heaven, whom catholics call “the virgin mary”.

    In booth’s diary was an entry “I can never repent.  god made me the instrument of his punishment{!!!}”   A trial was held.  Eight were found guilty.  Four were hanged: mary surratt, lewis payne, who stabbed secretary of state seward; davey herold; george atzerodt.  The other four were sent to prison.  The cabinet was terrified.  The fact that it was a catholic jesuit plot was played down.  The jesuits asked the conspirators to deny that they were roman catholics for public relations sake.  john surratt, mary surratt’s sister, with the help of the catholic bishops and priests, escaped and was sheltered in the black pope’s jesuit bodyguards, called the “zouaves.

   The United States had no diplomatic relations with the vatican. The United States demanded his return for trial.  The vatican released him, but saw to it that 3 catholics were on the jury.  It was a hung jury and john surratt got off.  john surratt was released.  The vatican had escaped exposure once again. Alberto Rivera, while under jesuit extreme oath, was vatican kee ps records of their persecutions, TORTURE and MURDER of born again Christians.  That includes all of the TORTURES, burning at the stake of 68 million born again Christians, and, doubtless, the MURDERS that still go on of roman catholics who accepted THE LORD JESUS CHRIST as LORD and SAVIOR.   Born again Christians are regarded as heretics and apostates by the roman catholic church.

   After booth MURDERED then president Lincoln, the vatican ordered catholic authors and writers to destroy Abraham Lincoln’s born again Christian testimony.  Catholic historians portray Abraham Lincoln as an agnostic, freemason, atheist, into seances.  Even today, protestant authors COPY what roman catholic authors write. In some public schools, black pupils are turned against Abraham Lincoln. The vatican never gives up. their jesuits NEVER forget.  john wilkes booth never repented.  Alberto’s account is REINFORCED by several, if not many, reports that came over the wires in Minnesota.  The wires announced that president Lincoln has been murdered FOUR HOURS prior to booth actually murdering then president Lincoln.  As he was dying, he exclaimed:  “Useless! Useless! The terrors before me!

George Herman Ruth was a tremendous pitcher for the major league baseball Boston Red Sox and a great slugger for the major league baseball New York Yankees. He hit a record 60 home runs in 154 games in 1927. His record was not broken in 154 games until 1998. He was a “happy go lucky” man who sometimes would swallow a hot dog WHOLE just prior to a game. On his deathbed, on August 16, 1948, “The Babe”, as he was known, said: “I die a fool”. So very, very sad. My dear mother was a tremendous fan of major league baseball. She wanted me to meet “The Babe”, but it was too late, as he died “before his time”. “The Babe” was only 53.

Svetlana Stalin, daughter of Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili { Josef Stalin } told of her father’s death:  “My father died a difficult and terrible death.  God grants an easy death only to the just. At what seemed the very last moment he suddenly opened his eyes and cast a glance over everyone in the room.  It was a terrible glance, insane or perhaps angry.  His left hand was raised, as though he were pointing to something above and bringing down a curse on us all. The gesture was full of menace. The next moment he was dead.”

Thomas Hobbes, the political philosopher and sceptic who corrupted some of England’s great men: “If I had the whole world, I would give anything to live one day. I shall be glad to find a hole to creep out of the world at. I am about to take a fearful leap in the dark!”

Caesar Borgia: “I have provided, in the course of my life, for everything except death; and now, alas! I am to die, although entirely unprepared!”

M.F. Rich: “Terrible horrors hang over my soul! I have given my immortality for gold; and its weight sinks me into a hopeless, helpless Hell!”

David Strauss, leading representative of German rationalism, after spending a lifetime erasing belief in God from the minds of others: “My philosophy leaves me utterly forlorn! I feel like one caught in the merciless jaws of an automatic machine, not knowing at what time one of its great hammers may crush me!”

Tallyrand was one of the most cunning French political leaders of the Napoleonic era.  On a paper found at his death were these words: “Behold eighty-three passed away!  What cares!  What agitation!  What anxieties!  What ill-will!  What sad complications!  And all without other results except great fatigue of mind and body, a profound sentiment of discouragement with regard to the future, and disgust with regard to the past!”

William E. Henley, an atheist, wrote a famous poem “I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.” Men who have been bold in their defiance of God have lauded Henley’s poem, but most of them were not aware that William Henley later committed suicide.

Sir Francis Newport, the head of an English Atheist club to those gathered around his deathbed: “You need not tell me there is no God for I know there is one, and that I am in His presence!  You need not tell me there is no hell.   I feel myself already slipping.  Wretches, cease your idle talk about there being hope for me!  I know I am lost forever! Oh, that fire!  Oh, the insufferable pangs of hell! .… Oh, that I could lie for a thousand years upon the fire that is never quenched, to purchase the favor of God and be united to Him again.  But it is a fruitless wish. Millions and millions of years will bring me no nearer the end of my torments than one poor hour.  Oh, eternity, eternity forever and forever! Oh, the insufferable pangs of Hell!

The sad reality is that every infidel whose last words can be found recorded expressed unimaginable grief and fear of death.   CONCLUSION:   We all have a DATE with DEATH!     All of us are born on death row.  Most people are scared to death of dying.  They do not want to talk about it or be talked to about it.   Man has no way of knowing the date of his death.  Everybody knows their BIRTHDAY but nobody knows their DEATH DAY!   The Bible teaches us that death is an appointment (Hebrews 9:27).   Unlike all other appointments, death is one that cannot be rescheduled.  The Scriptures also teach us that death is NOT the end.   After death there will be a Judgment.   The saints of God will be clothed in the Righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ.   The lost sinner will stand with his sins open before God and be sentenced to his eternal condemnation.
Examining the last words of saints and sinners causes me to say with the Scripture,  “Let me die the death of the righteous…”  (Numbers 23:10).  The child of God does not have to fear the day of death.   No Christian has ever been recorded recanting in torment in their dying hours.   Death is Certain.
Judgment is Sure.
Sin is the Cause.
Christ is the Cure!  WHAT WILL YOUR LAST WORDS BE???

The noted French atheist, voltaire, died a frightening death.  Let me quote for you the exact record as published , “When voltaire felt the stroke that he realized must terminate in death, he was overpowered with remorse.  He at once sent for the priest, and wanted to be ‘reconciled with the church’.   His infidel flatterers hastened to his chamber to prevent his recantation; but it was only to witness his ignominy and their own.  He cursed them to their faces; and, as his distress was increased by their presence, he repeatedly and loudly exclaimed, ‘Begone!  It is you that have brought me to my present condition.  Leave me, I say;  begone!  What a wretched glory is this which you have produced to me!’

This is what those who have gone to Hell will be uttering:  alternately begging for mercy and then cursing the LORD.  A glimpse in to Hell:   Luke 16:19-31  – consult the Rock    voltaire, “Hoping to allay his anguish by a written recantation, he had it prepared, signed it, and saw it witnessed.  But it was all unavailing.  For two months he was tortured with such an agony as led him at times to gnash his teeth in impotent rage against God and man.  At other times in plaintive accents, he would plead, ‘O, Christ! O, Lord Jesus!’  Then, turning his face, he would cry out, ‘I must die-abandoned of God and of men!’

“As his end drew near, his condition became so frightful that his infidel associates were afraid to approach his beside.  Still they guarded the door, that others might not know how awfully an infidel was compelled to die.   Even his nurse repeatedly said, ‘For all the wealth of Europe I would never see another infidel die.’    It was a scene of horror that lies beyond all exaggeration.    Such is the well-attested end of the one who had a natural sovereignty of intellect, excellent education, great wealth, and much earthly honor.”   (Dying Testimonies of Saved and Unsaved by Rev. S B Shaw, pp. 49-50.)

Reading of such a dying experience is overwhelming, even to us who are secure in Salvation.  Human emotions are a powerful source and no one can live and die without them.   Our present generation has mainly escaped the horror of unpreparing { not preparing – Nextaxpro } for death by the use of drugs to kill all pain.   Sadly, the beauty of a Godly death is also lost in our drug culture.  The new “right” of the health world is the right to be free of pain. In most cases, the pain or joy is simply transferred to the immediate moments after death.   We are spared both the joy and the screams.

But HE  {GOD Almighty, the LORD JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF} was wounded for our transgressions;  HE was bruised for our iniquities. The chastisement of our peace was upon HIM, and with HIS Stripes we are healed– Isaiah 53:5

But GOD Commendeth HIS Love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, CHRIST died for us.  Much more then, being now justified by HIS Blood, we shall be saved from Wrath through HIM.   – Romans 5:8-9.

Repentance toward GOD, and faith toward our LORD JESUS CHRIST.    – Acts 20:21

I tell you nay, but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.     Luke 13:3, 5.

Please study The Gospel of John, Book of Romans, First John and Isaiah 53.    These are good starting points.   I will expound on this subject in my category:    Why I know The King James 1611 Bible is the Word of The Lord.

For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of, but the sorrow of the world worketh death.  – 2Corinthians 7:10.

I tell you Nay, but except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.  – Luke 13:5, 3.
Verily, verily, I say unto thee:  he that heareth MY WORD, and believeth on HIM that sent ME, hath everlasting Life:  and shall not come into condemnation, but is passed from death unto life.  – John 5:24.

For the wages of sin is death:   but the Gift of GOD is eternal Life through JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD.   – ROMANS 6:23

*** Do not bet!!   The bookie gigantic corporations are so CORRUPT!!   These deeply CORRUPT corporations, LLC’s, partnerships set a VARIABLE betting line!!  In this game 1 of the NBA 2018 finals, the las vegas and reno betting lines were variable;  a spectrum!  Golden State was favored by “ten to twelve”.   There’s no “spectrum” in final scores!!   The “line” {ILLEGAL in all States, save Nevada} has to be either 10, 11, or 12.   What that meant in that game was that, if you bet on Golden State, you LOST!!   Had the game NOT gone into overtime, you had no chance to even TIE as Golden State never led by more than 7 points during regulation play.   Golden State was the vastly superior team, but Golden State NEVER LED by more than 11.  There was a controversial call with approximately 28 seconds left in regulaiton time.   Forgotten was a controversial call on the play immediately preceding.  What the call in favor of Golden State meant was that it was academic as Golden State was FIXED, PREDETERMINED that Golden State would not win by more than 10!

So las vegas and reno are PROBABLY saying “oh, no, the line was never 10 or 11.  It was 12!!   DO NOT BET!!  The house always wins at least 55 % of all the bets!
