NFL thread! What are you thinking?

Recommended Posts

He'd have been signed around the same time by any other team in the league. Trades get done on the day of the trade deadline. Why's it so hard to believe that a player could find a new deal 5 hours after being released in the first week of the season, especially when it's a player of his caliber, without there being some huge league conspiracy at play?

It's no secret the Pats were interested in him when the Steelers were shopping him and the interest was mutual between them but the Steelers were never going to trade him there. That doesn't mean they orchestrated this whole clown show of an offseason just to get Brown. That's such a stretch. Hell, things were looking up for the Raiders and Brown right until Mayock decided to fine Brown after giving him support on the feet and helmet issues. Once Mayock fined him, everything fell off a cliff.

I'm not defending Brown's actions, I think he was being an idiot on the whole, but I highly doubt we'd be having this discussion if he signed elsewhere. But it's the Pats so conspiracy right?

... LOL, there is some truth to that! But when you hold Rodgers to 10 points you should win that game. I hate to be an apologist but the Bears beat themselves with bad play calling, penalties and a QB that had his worst game as a Pro. Last 26 plays were passes with no runs when they were down by 7. No excuse for that.

Yep,  with the exception of a few plays,  the Bears shut Rodgers and the Packers down.  As a third year quarterback,  Trubisky needs to look more comfortable and be able to execute a bit better.   Play calling or inability to execute will be determined over a little more time,  but he just doesn't look good back there.

He had those happy feet going last night for sure.

I’m a Giants fan - bring on the Jones era - now. How do you only give Barcley 15 touches?

And yes their defense stinks and that’s not Eli’s fault but the fact remains that they only scored 17 points, again.

And how do you let a guy get behind you there - twice?

I'm not worried about Antonio Brown. He could work out like Randy Moss did.

If he doesn't and gives us his usual schtick , Belichick will simply make him a gunner on the punting team.  Then he'll either straighten out, quit, or worse case scenario, fake an injury and try to keep the money that way.  But Mr. Kraft has some pretty good lawyers as we know.

...Ya gotta feel bad for Josh Dobbs. He was probably not gonna play for the Steelers and probably won't play for the Dolphins BUT instead of spending the first part of winter in Pittsburgh riding in a 4 wheel drive Uber to practice he will be spending that time in Jacksonville driving a convertible to practice and having dinner on the Beach. Back-ups have a tough life!  😎  🏖️

If he's going to Miami he's going the wrong way....

He was traded to the Jaguars and Miami is a long way from Jacksonville.... nice beaches and all but not quite SoBe. 😉

I completely understand that. My team has been so bad for the last 20+ years that thinking about the next draft was all I had...lol.

Could be a Season defining game for either the Hawks or the Stealers in Pittsburgh.. hoping that they really are as crappy as the pats made them look.

i like Daniel Jones too, Eli is so done...

... Bears vs Denver is why you watch NFL football. 2 good defenses just gassed in the altitude with 2 coaches that know each other inside and out battling it out. End of the game and Denver misses the extra point BEARS WIN!!! Wait! A Bear was offsides so Denver goes for 2 from the 1yd line with a penalty and makes it DENVER WINS!!! Wait! there are a few second left and the Bears exhaust 3 downs and then get a too many men in the huddle so 4th and 15 and Trubisky makes the one great play of the game and completes it for a first down but time ran out so DENVER WINS! Wait! After review there is still 1 second left on the clock and the Bears have a chance with a 53yd field goal and Pinero makes it so BEARS WIN!!! Wait! No ... the Bears really do win!!! What an emotional roller coster for Bears and Denver fans!
