    I guess I can't complain too much. Eagles did a decent job, all things considered.

    6 points is closer than I thought it’d be.

    I'm already on the #FireSirianni train. Like half of their offensive yards were penalty yards. He's been awful at game planning since the Falcons game. I'm at the point where I'm hoping they get somehow get Doug back at the end of the year.

    Also, RIP anyone who bet the spread, lmao.

    Well why not, I still have a subscription.

    N.F.L.’s Top Lawyer Had Cozy Relationship With Washington Team President

    For nearly a decade, the president of the Washington Football Team sent emails to a friend in which he casually joked about Native Americans and racial and political diversity, griped about referees and league initiatives to improve player safety, and arranged tickets and perks for his correspondent. He also thanked the man for getting a fine lifted and for understanding the team’s thorniest troubles.

    That man was Jeff Pash, who — as the longtime general counsel of the N.F.L. and a top adviser to Commissioner Roger Goodell — would become responsible for investigating the team that had been run by the very executive he grew close to.

    Pash appeared to engage willingly in the back-and-forth, sometimes reassuring the Washington executive, Bruce Allen, who was with the club from 2009 to 2019, not to worry about troubles that would eventually rock the team and the league, including reports about harassment of the club’s cheerleaders.

    A trove of 650,000 emails gathered in the league’s investigation of workplace misconduct in the Washington Football Team’s front office has already resulted in the resignation of Jon Gruden as coach of the Las Vegas Raiders, after The New York Times published messages in which he made racist, sexist and homophobic remarks. The league received access to the emails several months before the investigation was completed last summer.

    But Allen’s exchanges with Pash, sent from 2009 to 2018, reveal a larger story about a clubby relationship between a top league official and team executives and owners he is expected to oversee.

    When the N.F.L. fined the Washington Football Team $15,000 for manipulating its player injury report, Allen reached out to Pash and the penalty was rescinded, a routine outcome, the league said. In another email, Allen expressed concern that the commissioner would accuse him of breaking rules on the signing of free agents, prompting his friend to reassure him, “He knows who it is and that it is not you.”

    And after a crisis erupted over allegations of sexual harassment of the Washington cheerleaders, Allen contacted Pash, who offered reassuring words.

    “I know that you are on it and would not condone something untoward,” he told Allen.

    In emails not involving Pash, however, Allen, Gruden and other men had shared photos of women wearing only bikini bottoms, including one picture of two Washington team cheerleaders.

    Pash joined the league in 1997, intersecting with Allen, who was a longtime Raiders and Buccaneers executive before he landed in Washington. Their emails suggest that, when the Washington franchise was in crisis, Pash tended to offer a sympathetic shoulder rather than acting as an impartial arbiter.

    “Communication between league office employees and club executives occurs on a daily basis,” Jeff Miller, the league’s executive vice president of communications, said in a statement Thursday. “Jeff Pash is a respected and high-character N.F.L. executive. Any effort to portray these emails as inappropriate is either misleading or patently false.”

    Miller said Pash paid for the tickets Allen arranged for him.

    After The Times contacted the league, the owners of the Arizona Cardinals, Chicago Bears and the Giants expressed support for Pash.

    Neither Pash nor Allen responded to a request for comment.

    He should have been able to finish out his career and retire as an Eagle. They always do this to the players that mean the most to the franchise. I'll never understand it.

    “Do this to players” meaning letting him go play for the only undefeated team in the league currently?

    He wanted to stay in Philly first and foremost. And its great that he's going to go play with Kyler and all of his weapons, but if they really wanted to send Ertz out on a high note they would have let him go in the off-season so he could sign with whoever he wanted and got paid.

    The Cardinals are in "win now" mode, so the trade makes sense. Plus the Eagles acquire a 5th and a player they were keen on in the draft.

    Sentiment rarely shows itself in the NFL.

    I'm certainly glad he went to a good team at least. Makes pulling for a Bills/Cardinals SB easier.

    Don't haunt me with bad dreams of potentially losing a Super Bowl to another "Hail Murray."

    Worse yet would be facing the Cowboys.

    Let me play someone I can stand losing to. Currently, that sits at.....Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, Matt Ryan and the Falcons (yeah right), wouldn't mind losing to Russ Wilson....that's about it in the NFC.

    Better yet, let us play a shit team that we can steamroll by 40 points so I don't have to have agita for the two weeks before the game.

    Edit: I guess I wouldn't mind losing to Stafford and the Rams, except I hate their owner and hate that they left St. Louis - but Stafford deserves success.

    For sure, that many emails and they have only found 2.5 people that have done anything remotely wrong? I don't know, definitely feels targeted.

    "We have enough emails to get Gruden ousted midway through his contract and get a lawyer fired for consorting with Dan Snyder, but not enough emails to convince owners to pressure Snyder to sell."

    Yeah, okay NFL, we totally believe you're not just covering for the rich guy.
    WoW has Cancer. First you cut out the cancer (abusive devs), then you assign an aggressive treatment plan (major design rework) to save it.

    Or you just let it die because that's too expensive.
