    Yeah, okay NFL, we totally believe you're not just covering for the rich guy.
    Not to mention both people sent these to the same guy, why the hell is Bruce Allen not being asked why people felt it ok to send him that kind of hateful content?

    The NFL has found no other current team or league personnel to have sent emails containing racist, anti-gay or misogynistic language similar to messages written by Jon Gruden that led to his resignation as Las Vegas Raiders coach, a person familiar with the documents told The Associated Press on Friday.

    The person said the league "did not identify other areas and other individuals it has to contact at club leadership or league leadership levels." The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the league has not publicly released what is in the 650,000 emails the independent investigators collected during an investigation of sexual harassment and other workplace conditions at the Washington Football Team.

    ...

    Kind of surprised, you would think someone else would have made similar comments about Goodell to Bruce Allen.

    I'm actually starting to believe Gruden was only targeted because of that now. They can use the poorest NFL owner's organization as a distraction to whatever bad stuff is being covered up for Washington.

    Tue just pulled a Wilson, had an easy 5 yards free ahead of him on a 3rd and 2 and stopped right before the first down marker to throw it. As frustrating as when runners do or don’t get out of bounds when time is relevant.

    I don’t think I’ve seen much of tua but he has a really sluggish throwing motion.

    It might just be because it’s Miami (I thought their D was really good, did it not carry over from last year?) but Lawrence is looking pretty good - comfortable in the pocket, not rocketing it into receivers open 5 yards away, accuracy right at their chests. Though the broadcasters are giving him too much credit for things like drops. Some of those drops are on him for throwing it too short or while on the run so it has a weird angle, which he does a lot.

    Does jax not have a running back?

    I'd say it's still way too early to talk about who will be in the superbowl.

    Well, to be fair, the article doesn't say that there wasn't rascist, sexist or homophobic in the emails, but rather nothing "similar to" but they don't describe what is similar. It is essentially stupid word play that if it comes out that they are in the emails, they can go "But they aren't similar to Gruden."

    It is stupid PR speak.

    Yeah, unless they release the emails we’ll never know. I’d put a lot of money on Gruden being part of a larger issue rather than the exception.

    I agree.

    With how the NFL has handled other similar issue, they are avoiding telling us the full picture to "protect the Shield."

    I love the game, but I am sick of the bs from the commissioner and other NFL administrators.

    That's an incredible 4 second play to pick up 9 yards, I don't think they make the winning FG without that.

    So are the Chargers playing that bad or are the Ravens playing that good?

    Because so far I'm leaning the latter just seeing the highlights.

    How many owners do you think are implicated in the emails?

    I'm gonna guess at least 25% of them.
    Talents - ☑
    EK/Kalimdor Revamp - ☒
    Endgame Gearing Revamp - ☐

    FFXIV - Crystal Datacenter | Classic - Ashkandi (Horde)

    Given the average age of a NFL owner. That is a safe bet.

    Miami's defense last year was "good" because it had an unreasonably high number of turnovers, which wasn't sustainable in any way. In week 17, when we had locked up the #2 seed and couldn't get the #1, against a Miami who only needed to win to get in, our starters played one half, and then our backups SMOKED their #1 defense. We annhilated them when it meant nothing to us and everything to them.
