    Saints just don’t know how to start the season, not been 2-0 since like ‘13.

    Also Sanders not done shit, praised as a big signing.

    Huge win, especially after that dogshit first quarter. To win by two scores as well, would have been comfier but we did Guenther's prevent special.

    The strength of this team is the ability to grind downfield on offence, it cannot be understated just how efficient at chaining first downs they are.

    But also, when the hell did we get less penalties than our opponents?

    Our two starting LBs are injured and we got gashed by Gisecki cause we were soft up the middle this week.

    But they're week-to-week and have a good chance of being back next week, so nothing long term for us, *cross fingers*.

    Broncos sign Blake Bortles to a 1 year deal.

    Because the year hasn't been bad enough for them it seems.

    Boy Broncos fans might want to start figuring out who the best non-QB in next year's draft is. Because they sure seem set up to take them.

    Could be worse than Bortles for a backup I guess. There isn't a QB worth anything available anyway unless you want Matt Moore.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they go QB if they somehow end up I n a position to take one of them. Lock has been hurt twice already, and he doesn't have a 5th year option.

    If they end up with Lock & Lawrence they could end up in a Brees/Rivers situation and then the worst that could happen is they make the wrong choice, watch the other win a championship while they never do, lose their stadium, their city, and end up paying rent as a second-rate team nobody cares about.

    You know I tried to figure out what bad team there should even take Trevor. As far as the 0-2s go it's just the Panthers to me that should.

    Jets would be on that list but I still like Sam Darnold, and we all know their biggest issue is Adam Gase actively destroys QBs (see Tannehill, Ryan).

    Washington's probably the only other one on my radar right now just because we already had the "Rivera hates Haskins" stories this year.

    There might be a surprise in the draft where Lawrence isn't the #1 pick.

    I mean it's John Elway that's not worst, that's what's going to happen.

    Well besides the relocation bit.

    No way. Tua got about the most horrific injury that you can get and he still went 5th and Trevor Lawrence has always been a slightly better prospect than Tua. Unless Lawrence loses a foot or something, he's going no. 1 overall.

    In fact I think that's about the surest thing in any sport, anywhere, right now, what with Covid uncertainty. He is one of the bonafide sure things.

    Oh I think he'll still be the first QB and in the first round. I'm just saying don't count out a team getting to #1 and saying "We have a QB we feel good about, let's either shop the pick or take the best non-QB."

    The Broncos currently have no owner. If the NFL forces a sale because the family are too busy fighting in court over it someone could buy them and move. Just imagine a 3rd LA team because the NFL's solution to that market not caring about them is to add more teams....

    I'm not sure if Denver is bad enough to beat out teams like the Jets and Panthers for the #1 pick. Mike Purcell and Shelby Harris knock down too many passes for it to not pay off eventually.

    I might be a little biased here, but I could see some teams wanting Justin Fields over Lawrence.

    Yeah idk where anyone got that idea; there’s no condition that makes anyone exempt, the cards people show on social media are fake.

    Jaguars. There's no way they'd stick with the moustache if a talent like Lawrence is available.

    Yupyup.. Tua got the Bo Jackson career ending injury. No wonder they had him flown and into surgery before the game ended didn't they?

    Sounded like ESPN trying to make up some bullshit about the exemption so they didn't feel as bad about showing coaches over and over not following the rules.

    I'd love to see a source on that. I googled and just found this terrible article:

    https://www.sportingnews.com/us/nfl/...20the%20pocket.

    The article makes its point by comparing categories of plays, but the categories are basically designed to make running seem less bad: For example, this quote from the article:

    "The risk for a scrambling quarterback is almost equal to the quarterback who is sacked: once every 91.7 plays for the scrambler, once every 92.5 plays for the guy getting sacked."

    So basically, what this is saying is that a scramble is equal to getting sacked. The key point is buried much later on:

    "One caveat would be that a running QB will attempt so many rushes per game that the sheer volume will still put him at an increased risk."

    Even if the risk per play is smaller than a sack, you're still taking a lot more hits as a running qb.

    They should move them to San Diego, can't imagine a worse fate for the chargers fans than making them root for the broncos.
