    Wow, Brees 29/30 tonight. Holy cow.

    Also, the whole all-time touchdown record or whatever.

    My only complaint with my Saints and Brees game was having to watch it on MNF. I think if people were playing a drinking game and were to drink any time the word 'record' was said they would be dead.

    Wasn't it Brees who got penalized for delay of game because the NFL made cameramen run onto the field in the middle of downs and make a big show of him passing a record a year or two ago?

    Oh I guess it turned out to be for "taunting" and no excessive celebration, and the flag was picked up anyway.

    At this point, with 133 catches, Michael Thomas is only looking up at Antonio Brown & Julio Jones with 136, and Marvin Harrison with 143.

    And they quickly switch to something else.... why do most coaches cover their mouths now?

    After getting carved up by the all-time leader in passing yards, touchdowns, completions, and completion %, the Colts face Will Grier making his first career start.

    Did a way to early mock draft with Atlanta picking #12 and doing just 4 rounds and I get this...

    12 Joe Burrow, QB LSU <--- They need to fix their draft machine How does Burrow drop to 12???
    44 Terrell Lewis, EDGE Alabama
    61 Bryce Hall, CB Virginia
    76 Brandon Jones, S Texas
    108 Zack Moss, RB Utah

    I thought Burrow being there at 12 was silly but how can you pass on him... Guess it is way too early to do these things.

    Yeah that sounds busted. What site did you do your draft on?

    Geeze I haven't even looked at the draft yet. Let's change that.

    For the sake of the argument let's say Burrow, Herbert, and Tua all come out. I'd probably rank Burrow 1, Tua 2nd (due to his injury), and Herbert 3.

    Just dinking around with the ESPN Playoff Machine I get roughly this for the top 6:
    Cin
    NYG
    Det
    Miami
    Washington
    Arizona

    Bengals are going QB for sure, Burrow probably fits the Sean McVay style well. Miami for sure is going QB and thanks to Burrow winning the Heisman they might actually still land Tua.

    So pending a trade-up someone is probably sliding, my guess is whatever draft machine you used hasn't updated Burrow to be QB1 after winning the Heisman so it's still saying Tua and Herbert go ahead of him.



    Actually looking at my projected finishes, Herbert probably falls to either Jacksonville or Carolina around picks 7-10.

    I could see Hurts in the 1st also, his numbers are comparable to the last two Oklahoma QBs but with more running. Lamar Jackson was a late 1st.

    No changes for the Lions this offseason.

    Not sure when this became a thing people were expecting. They're down to their third string QB, no way was this lost season on Patricia's coaching.

    His seat for sure starts hot next season, though.

    Late 1st I could see there. Honestly he strikes me as a potential next Lamar Jackson/Patrick Mahomes. Drafted by a playoff team with a starter in place, sits for a year, then takes over.

    They badly bungled Stafford's injury, got fined for it, and failed completely to find a replacement, that usually is a bad look. I could've seen them can the GM and then new GM would want his own coach, but also they're looking like a 3rd place team at best next year, so maybe they don't need to rush things?

    Because they are afraid of lip readers ... doesn't mean anything.
    They also cover their mouths with the play card which is often double sided.

    The Cleveland Browns are still alive!

    1. The Browns must beat the Ravens and Bengals. (They already beat the Ravens once 40-24)
    2. The Steelers must lose to the Jets and Ravens. (They have no QB so it is possible)
    3. The Titans must lose to the Saints and Texans. (The Saints are one of the elite teams in the NFL and the Titans just lost to the Texans so this is possible).
    4. The Colts must beat the Panthers and Jaguars (who are both pathetic).

    If ALL of that happens, then all 4 finish 8-8 and are tied for the #6 seed. Here is how the tiebreakers play out:

    1. Eliminate teams in the same division first.

    a. The Colts have a better division record than the Titans so the Titans are OUT.
    b. The Browns have a better division record than the Steelers so the Steelers are OUT.

    Now its Colts vs Browns for the #6 seed. They did not play each other this season. The next tiebreaker is conference record. The Browns have a better conference record.

    Result: Browns are the #6 seed

    Odds are about 1 in 100 that this happens lol.

Space platforms as in Starcraft. Just a totally fantastic tileset & theme that I'd be very keen to explore. They could do some wild things.

    He's confirmed it now. Surprised he goes before Marrone. Guessing he's gone if they lose this week. Otherwise gone on Black Monday.

    Since the NFLPA told everyone not to sign there because of their draconian and illegal fines and requirements implemented by Coughlin, yea, he had to go.
