    Sure and if they got the TD and 2pt conversion there they'd have tied the game and still could have got the ball back. Going for the FG there was just stupid. If they failed to get it it would have pinned the Steelers deep in their own territory and they could have gotten the ball back and STILL been able to tie the game with a TD+2pt. It was 4th and 4 from the 8 yard line, it isn't like they were at the 40.

    It was a gutless move I thought only Ron Rivera was capable of, but there are some genuinely bad coaches around.

    ...and most of them seem to be in the AFC West

    I think Josh McDaniels and Brandon Staley are doing an amazing job and deserve lifetime contracts.

    As for the other guy, what is the Saints return policy?

    Lifelong dolphins fan here, he didn't run it up because he didn't want to look like a hypocrite to his team based on the things he's been telling them. He said so in his press conference.

    Man, the Bengals look broken. Burrow is clearly not himself, he should be on IR and getting healthy.

    Yes! Safety!

    It feels odd to say "the Eagles feel like they should be doing better" when they're up by 19, but that's been all three games. Something's just a little off.

    They’re kinda lucky. Their lines are DOMINANT on both sides and rain really fucked with the throwing game, which had a much bigger effect on the bucs.

    Agreed. The local commentators I listen to say the Eagles should have had ten more points. And I am not complaining at all about their defense.

    Well he's taking advantage of bonus time as they got a play off with no time left in the quarter that was a huge play.

    Well that was a costly penalty. Game prolly over now.

    I am glad Detroit went for it on 4th and Goal, that was the right call and it paid off. Game def over now, 34-17 with 6 mins

    No, it wasn't.
    Hey the loss wasn't on him at least. Love tried to do another 4th quarter miracle. Quay Walker however is about to be on the fast track to the practice squad.

    Holy shit. Packers LT Bakthiari was put on IR today. Again. For a knee injury. Again. And he's having surgery on it. Again.

    Some snippets:

    "Bakhtiari signed a four-year, $92 million extension in 2020 that has paid him out $71 million of those dollars since just before his initial ACL tear. Since that injury, Bakhtiari has only played in 13 games for Green Bay, recording 679 offensive snaps for the team."

    "One of the big problems for the Packers moving forward is that they continued to push Bakhtiari’s cap hits forward, as they attempted to go “all in” on their final championship window with quarterback Aaron Rodgers under center, which now means that Bakhtiari will have a $41 million cap hit in 2024. That cap hit would rank the eighth-highest among all NFL players next season and first among non-quarterbacks, per Spotrac.

    According to cap expert Ken Ingalls, the Packers’ 2024 cap space will take on at least $19 million for Bakhtiari’s dead cap next season. Any salary that Bakhtiari makes will only be added on top of that number, should Green Bay keep him around. Per Ingalls, Bakhtiari could have a case for going after the $21.4 million in cash that he’s due in 2024, if he can’t pass a physical by the start of the new league year next season."



    Like, dude, please retire while you still have some mobility left. Cause this is going from dumb situation to tragic situation real quick now.

    Winning at Arrowhead and winning at Lambeau. Also an asterisk?

    Packers should have let him go after last season where he was barely available. The knee injury clearly was a career-ender. And that's been a big part of why the offense has been bad except for once they get into a 3 score hole. They have no functional LT right now and it's getting the outside running game blown up which is leading to more passing and more times for the left side of the line to get Love blown up.
