    Obviously its a terrible thing that happened, but the timing isn't so bad. Depending on what the additional structural damage was he could be ready for the start of next season, and somebody else can take the lumps behind that OLine until then.

    Justin Herbert now poised to run away with rookie of the year, on pace for ~4500 yards and ~37 TDs he should hopefully get some more attention as those numbers climb.
    Looks like it's worse than just the ACL...

    Report: Joe Burrow has torn ACL, MCL, additional damage in knee
    Prior to the MRI, the team reportedly suspected that Burrow tore his ACL. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Monday’s MRI showed there were multiple major issues beyond that, including a torn MCL and other “structural damage.”
    Just brutal.

    Yeah the "structural damage" is the worry. If this was just an ACL/MCL it'd be fine so long as it doesn't shake him mentally. If there's other damage, this could be Teddy Bridgewater.

    He was getting it regardless. Burrow has been ok with a reason to be good about the future, but Herbert has made an immediate and consistent impact that you can trust to not just be a fluke.

    Been some pretty ticky-tack DPI calls, and that last one definitely should have been OPI on Evans instead of DPI on Ramsey.

    If this is how the refs are going to be calling this game it'll be a long night for the Rams secondary.

    I was really looking forward to the Ravens - Steelers matchup, but it's looking more and more like it's not going to be that close of a game. The Ravens will likely be without several starters due to COVID/injury issues.

    Also, Lamar Jackson lamented that "I feel like people want us to lose" to reporters after their loss against the Titans on Sunday. Whenever your franchise QB starts whining and talking loser talk like that, it's not a good sign.

    It's not even the first time he's whined this season. He was calling out their OC just a few weeks ago.

    So the Ravens/Steelers game just got postponed to Sunday. There goes the only decent game tomorrow.

    This is the second time this season the Steelers are forced to rearrange things because another team can't handle their shit. If the Ravens are found to be in violation of any COVID protocols, they should have to forfeit the game.

    From the rumors, they absolutely were in violation. Apparently a trainer was symptomatic and didn't tell anyone. Not sure why they aren't part of the daily tests, or maybe they had false negatives.

    This game is really gonna screw up things considering it has huge playoff implications.

    Cowboys put together good teams every 3-4 years but blow it. Also drafted a RB high when your O line was on the decline and decided to sign him to a big contract while kicking the can on Dak. Now Dak is hurt, and now they ain't doing anything this year. McCarthy is an overrated AF coach.
    McCarthyh is not overrated He developed Aaron Rodgers, won a Super Bowl, multiple trips to the NFC title game and wln over 100 games. He is implmenting an entirely new offensive system and can't keep QB's healthy. It is completely unfair to write him or call him overrated. His accomplishments preclude him from being called overrated to begin with and his issues in Green Bay was the GM.

    Aaron Rodgers should have easily been the run away winner of the debate of "Best QB ever." That he is, at best, 3rd behind Brady and Peyton, and maybe even 4th if you consider Brees's workmanship output, is because of McCarthy.

    McCarthy is not a good coach (at least in the modern NFL). Even before Dak was hurt, the Cowboys offense was frustratingly misused.

    This game puts the Washington Football Team in 1st place in the NFCE. Kind of fitting that dumpster fire would be leading that division.

    The Cowboys defense is also really special.

  14. #1954
    So the Lions and Cowboys both got embarrassed today, 41 - 25 and 41 - 16, respectively. When is the NFL going to wise up and stop giving these two teams the Thanksgiving games every year?

    Lamar Jackson just tested positive for COVID and will miss the game against the Steelers, and likely miss the game next Thursday against the Cowboys.

    The Ravens say they have "disciplined" the strength and conditioning coach who didn't tell anyone about his symptoms and wasn't wearing a mask. He doesn't need to be disciplined, he needs to be fired.

    And he's gonna stay there, with some folks even going so far as to put Favre ahead of him, because the front office just refuses to commit to a Super Bowl window.









    Anyway, 4 more folks in the Ravens test positive, including Lamar Jackson. I see a 0% chance this game gets played, and at this point it definitely should count as a Ravens L.

    The following head coaches should be fired by the end of the season:
    - Adam Gase
    - Doug Marrone
    - Matt Patricia
    - Mike McCarthy

    MM isn't going anywhere. 1st year head coach in the middle of a pandemic which wiped away any prep time combined with excessive injuries.

    This, essentially. Rodgers would have multiple rings with an above average coach. I don't think he should get any credit for developing Rodgers. He was Farve's backup.

    The only one that might survive is McCarthy because Dallas usually is too loyal and there's plenty of "external factors" for this bad season.

    Another coach I'd watch is Anthony Lynn if the Chargers don't get their shit together.

    People forget that Rodgers was in a legit competition for the #1 overall pick that season, too. This isn't like they drafted him on Day 3 and he sat for 4 years and then took the league by storm.

    Yeah theres no way McCarthy gets fired his first season. Too many variables plus the candidate pool will be pretty shallow this year. JJ kept Garrett 2-3 years beyond what he should have. Only way JJ fires McCarthy before 5 seasons is if he loses the locker room in a normal season.
