    Also lol that the rams took obj in, they really want that ring this year but…. Still think that the cardinals and bucs will beat them to get to the SB
    The Rams just aren't that high on my list... Stafford is good but often chokes and has multiple injuries. Now they grab OBJ who is drama+injuries. Great defense though.

    Gruden suing the NFL saying they targeted him as a fall guy for the WFT probe.

    I, for one, hope Jon doesn't settle and forces all 650k EMails public. It would be his greatest legacy to the sport.

    I'm excited for this week now. Pat Shurmur is in covid protocol and won't be coaching this weekend.

    I cannot really judge a QB based on anything they would have done in Detroit. Just the fact he got that team to the playoffs 3 or 4 times is a feat in on itself. His injury history is problematic, I agree, but the dude was basically teed off on every game because they lacked any running game and often played from behind or in shootout situations because of a bad defense.

    With a defense as good as LA has and the offensive firepower they have proven to have I don't see how they aren't in anyone's top 3 or 4 NFL teams right now. For sure because the 49ers and Seahawks are pretty down this year making the road a bit easier.

    OBJ I suspect will be a good little boy in LA. He probably likes making lots of money and doesn't want to blow the possibility of landing at least a moderate contract somewhere next year. If he goes crazy again he would be 3 for 3 and his only hope will be the Tom Brady rehabilitation camp in Tampa on a low end contract. If he is a problem at all I suspect he will just get ditched again. He is purely a luxury pick up and not a required piece for success so they won't put up with it. Plus LA will throw the rock at him. It is what they do. Yeah, he will have to rotate a bit more and see the field a few less plays a game but when he does he will see attempts his way.

    Robert Woods is out for the year with a torn ACL, there are the targets for him so he doesn't complain.

    Did that really happen the day after picking up obj or was it really a thing from a little earlier? If it just happened that’s some crazy karma.

    The problem with being the top 3-4 in the NFC still puts you possibly behind teams like the Cardinals, Packers, Bucs, Cowboys. I know they are a great team, I just thought it was a weird move when they already have great receivers.

    It will only be great if he can be as productive as woods from the get go.

    Jared Goff is so bad.

    They pointed out during the broadcast that he has a record of 42-20 with McVay and 0-15 without him.
