    Well, this is interesting. https://twitter.com/Saints/status/1454174789204074502

    In a press conference Mark Ingram said that the Texans wouldn;t have traded him to any other team, but cause it was the Saints, they wanted to give him the opportunity to go back home.

    That's actually really nice, even though it was probably still a deal made cause they wanted to stockpile assets. But it's nice they gave Ingram the option to choose himself.

    Every site I checked pre-game said the Eagles would struggle against the winless Lions. Eagles by 3 to 4, they said.

    At the half...looking pretty promising for the Eagles. I want to say "about time they looked strong" but, again, winless Lions. Everyone should win a fight with a kobold.

    If the Jets season wasn't already done, Josh Johnson is playing. That only happens when teams ran out of QBs.

    Lions defense is pretty awful, they are making the Eagles look like a real offense.

    In fairness it was close. A real ding hummer. Only the rams differential was a little closer.

    As they look poised to upset them despite like 3 turnovers.

    To be fair, the Lions have had multiple near misses against some pretty good teams, and the Eagles have had multiple games where they have played like total shit. But this seems like the Lions just called it in and said they definitely want to play for draft picks now.

    The Eagles weren't playing like themselves either. Had like three or four fouls.

    Yeah I mean the Lions played very well against a few teams, hell they really had the Ravens beat. A no call on a delay of game and then a record setting kick changed that.

    No idea who Mike White is, but doesn't look good for Zach Wilson to have in come in and massively outplay him. His stat line would have been even better if it wasn't for the 2 picks deflected by Jets players.

    I'm sure the Lions will win at least 1 game this year, they have 5 bad teams left and whatever the Seahawks end up being when they play.

    Wilson has the honor of being the only one of the rookie QBs that seems just outright nonstop bad this year.
    The future Blizzard wants is not the past we loved.

    Not sure how well he actually played, half of his yards ended up being dump offs to RBs who had massive YAC.

    Washington didn't kick a FG then drops a pack thrown right at them. Lucky for them Denver's offense is offensively bad. I'm pretty sure a cardboard cutout would call a better game than Pat Shurmur.

    Still a huge upgrade over Wilson.

    That's twice now these refs have made questionable calls. 1 where LA scored and 1 where the Patriots didn;t score because of it. I don't like how this sports weekend is going.

  16. #1676
    And the Saints season might just be fucked. Jameis took a bad looking horsecollar and looks to have gotten injured pretty badly. Taysom is out his 2nd game in a row already from a brutal concussion. Trevor Siemian is the backup and Ian Book is inactive. Fuck.

    The theme for the Patriots today is just self inflicted wounds and not capitalizing on opportunities. They need to get their shit together pronto or this game breaks open the wrong way.

    And then there's blatant holds not being called on Judon. Swell.

    Ah yes, Siemian is succeeding. Just as we all predicted, especially Grube.
