    Blargh I hate these 17 game season numbers. I need Jeff Fisher to return to coaching so I can find out if he'd go 7-10 or 8-9.

    Just one season that's all we need to establish what's the mediocrity record now.

    Son of late senator say Trump intervened to stop probe of Patriots' Spygate scandal....

    THE ALLEGED SPYGATE connections among Arlen Specter, Donald Trump and Robert Kraft came up almost by accident. On July 1, 2010, Specter sat down with Robbins for one of their tape-recorded discussions to prepare for the writing of Specter's third and final book, a memoir titled "Life Among the Cannibals." Only six weeks earlier, Specter, who famously switched parties from Republican to Democratic, had lost a hard-fought Democratic primary to Congressman Joe Sestak. The defeat effectively ended Specter's five-term tenure in the U.S. Senate.

    Not the Patriots hopefully.

    Love the idea of Julio the player on the team, but between the Falcons demands, his contract and his injury history and age, I'll pass.

    Bet he ends up on the Raiders.

    I just wanna know who the supposed first-round offer was from and why the Falcons did not jump at that. You get a first-round pick for an aging WR that probably won't finish play all the games this season.

    This is really more about good old Bob Kraft, who everybody loved when he was the owner of the plucky underdog Pats and through good marketing managed to turn it into being the “best owner in sports” while he RAKED in the dough as owner of the Patriots after strong arming the public into building him a stadium, is a Trump supporter, and arrested for soliciting sex at a massage parlor.

    But he looks good in the owner’s box when the cameras show him clapping as the announcers fawn over him so everyone forgets that he’s just another dickhead billionaire.

    Teams and/or agents put out made up offers all the time, so it is possible no one actually offered a 1st.

    Colts and 49ers probably make the most sense, but I am just assuming he will be a Falcon until a trade actually happens.

    I don't know if anybody else uses pro-football-reference to check stats but I noticed something amusing today. On player pages they have little badges for being All-Pro or a Pro Bowler or winning MVP or DPotY type stuff.

    Mitch Trubisky's page has an orange NVP badge for his Nickelodeon Valuable Player award.

    Robert Kraft is actually one of the few owners who paid for building the stadium all by himself. There's no public money in Gillette Stadium. Not for the original building and not for any upgrades since then.

    If you are going to hate on the Patriots, at least do it with actual facts.

    Guess I misread something. He's still a Trump supporting dick though. Nothing to do with the Patriots, owners are just random billionaires making money off their legal monopoly.

    If we can get one good season out of him, after losing Agholor, which still baffles the absolute shit out of me, I'll be happy so long as we don't overpay.

    But lord knows with the way we view draft picks.

    Being able to make that kind of comeback, since that was his last best year, not repeating it specifically with the pats.

    If the reports are correct, Julio Jones is going to the Titans.

    No idea who else they have other than AJ Brown, so probably makes their offense much better.

    I doubt AJ Brown is thrilled by this development though. Cause now everyone is going to look at the 2 of them and wonder who WR1 is. AJ Brown may not have Julio's name recognition, but he has been a very good and underrated receiver.
