    If that's legit that may help explain why the Raiders were so willing to just cut him days before the season.

    If hard knocks couldn't get anything good with antonio brown on the team what is even the point of the show?

    Stop the whiny bullshit about the refs costing them the game. So many (not everyone) insufferable fans of NO--and I'm a Philly fan.

    Did the calls hurt them? Absolutely.
    Did the Saints have plenty of opportunity to win the game despite that? Absolutely. Maybe don't throw an interception in OT. Maybe don't blow a 13-0 lead. Maybe don't blow 2 easy 3rd down conversions in a row.

    They barely got by the Eagles (starting their 9th string DBs) and choked horribly against the Rams. So again--What makes you think they would have put on a better show against the Patriots?
    Yeah the Saints would NEVER have such a poor showing. Especially in a prime time game!

    I mean I don't think it would have been hard to put on a better show than the Rams. The Saints have been there before at least at the key positions QB/Coach and Payton wouldn't have been as intimidated with his play calling like McVay was in the super bowl imo. That was one of the worst super bowls since the blowouts of the late 80s/early 90s.

    As far as the 'whiny bullshit', get over it. I don't get what being a Philly fan does for you, is that like a badge of honor or something?

    Did the call hurt them? Well the game would likely have been over if the call was made.
    Did the Saints have plenty of opportunities to win despite that? Sure, don't forget there was also the missed PI on the overtime interception if you remember. Brees got hit as he threw the ball but the ball was not touched by a Rams player but that didn't stop a defender from hitting the receiver on the play and then making the interception. Go and watch both of them and tell me if you were a fan of the team that got hosed by those two calls if you'd not be a bit angry at the Refs and ticked off your team got robbed, twice. It is one thing to beat a good team, it is another thing entirely to beat a good team and a team of bad refs.

    Are you serious? As I said damn near any team could have put on a better show than that snooze fest. At least there is some karma in that the Rams were woefully outmatched in the Super Bowl they shouldn't have even been in and got to lose it. I'll take some solace in that.

    A bit of irony in you telling me to get over it when every post is you not getting over the loss and continued blame to the refs. And the Philly fan comment should be obvious--as we're generally known as insufferable--assuming you pay attention to anything outside of your area code. It's not a 'badge of honor' or whatever half-assed insult you want it to be.

    Every team gets a raw deal with refs at times. You aren't special. And not every one moans about it incessantly. The whole "we would have done better if we were good enough to play in that game" is a sorry ass thing to say. Who's to say they don't play exactly like they did against Dallas?

    You sound like Kamara did when he said the Saints would have beat the Eagles if they had gotten past the Vikings two years ago. Just pure excuse-laden salt.

    Oh sure, totally every team gets a raw deal in the NFC Championship were all of America can see such an obvious fucked up call. That's why PI is reviewable now, because that was how bad the fuckup was.

    Yeah, you're still trying for a badge of honor as insufferable Philly fans, oh noez you booed Santa Claus, such badasses. Do me a favor though and stop wasting my time.

    Hahah. You're just embarrassing yourself at this point man.

    Knee-jerk reaction from the no-GM Texans cutting Aaron Colvin the day after the Saints went 8 of 9 for 117 and a TD targeting him.

    His $7.5 mil salary for this season is guaranteed.

    or it could be that the organization is a dumpster fire.

    or both.

    I can only shake my head at anyone that would believe that. Hopefully New England doesn’t knee jerk cut him and let’s it play out, the suit will obviously not go anywhere.

    Enunwa done for the year, looks like D. Thomas really should be needed in NY.

    Hunter Henry hurt again already. Maybe Virgil Green will have a breakout year as a receiver finally.

    Johnathan Abram confirmed out for the season after a torn labrum in his shoulder. He did it in the first quarter and played the rest of the game just hitting with his other shoulder.

    For those who watched Hard Knocks, he's the guy who doesn't know how to pronounce salmon.

    Good news for the Bears offense, Bryce Callahan still isn't practicing. They can be next to just pick on Isaac Yiadom all game.

    I guess that is karma.

    For hurting his own teammate after launching himself instead of tackling correctly, not the salmon part.

    Darnold has mono, out multiple weeks according to Adam Gase....



    ....so many jokes to be made about kissing Jersey girls.....must resist.....


    I do have to wonder if he had it while playing in week 1, cause that'd be dangerous as fuck. Mono can enlarge your spleen and a hit to it could rupture it.

    Browns banned the wrong fan (players shouldn't jump in the stands on the road anyway)

    Darnold is out for weeks with mono

    Saints are playing the Rams so I have to put up with another week of talking heads rambling about PI

    Apparently they thought he had strep throat as of Tuesday, so doesn't look like he was showing symptoms until a day or two after the game.

    If the Browns lose this game now I'm officially off the bandwagon.


    Pfft, Mono. Only theJets.

    That happened after he'd already done the injury. I don't think karma works in advance.

    Sucks for Darnold, he won't fully recover from that until after the season unless he got really lucky.

    If Siemien played like he did with Kubiak, not sure he would actually even be a downgrade from Darnold. Doubt it will happen though, he has not been the same since he got hit every play when Rick Dennison started running the offense after whatever Kubiak's health problem was.

    I missed the start where they were explaining why they are only on Sky Cam. Anyone know why that is?
