the Jets are gonna be 3-2 after this week

probably, which is hilarious to think, but the browns are going to win a game at some point, and what better game than this? also, myles garrett is in

kareem hunt never really psychologically recovered from fumbling on his first nfl snap

bookies have the Jets as only a 1-point favorite. I mean obviously the Jets suck as well but the Browns are just a total tire fire at this point. they got throttled by the 0-3 Bengals.

it's amazing. it's the only interesting thing happening in this game.

I feel bad for kickers sometimes. there really isn't another position in any sport where one bad day can ruin your career (unless said bad day involves a hospital visit).

frogbs, Friday, 6 October 2017 03:20 (one year ago) Permalink

especially if Tampa scores the touchdown here. even if they somehow get the ball back you can't exactly send Folk out there again.

I appreciate how the announcers were attempting to make those last few plays sound like this was an exciting end to an exciting game.

Cutler's doing so bad Miami is winning at home and the fans are booing him and screaming for Moore.

the last INT involved him flinching from pass pressure that wasn't actually there, he was reacting to a scenario that literally wasn't occurring on the field.

I think it's time for Moore cos we know what his ceiling is and his floor is way above Cutler's, but I doubt you do that mid-game - not when you're winning.

it is sad how cutler literally doesn't give a fuck. i don't know if miami could've recovered from losing tannehill anyway but this was p much the worst possible outcome

Roberto Spiralli, Sunday, 8 October 2017 19:23 (one year ago) Permalink

they gotta go with Moore. Moore's not elite but he saved what looked like was sure was a long shot playoff spot after Tannehill's injury last year. His ceiling may not be as high as a pro bowl QB but his floor is way higher than Cutler's. and so far Miami's defense looks much improved from last year - it's not dominant, but it can win with offensive support.

Cutler looks as enthused as a guy breathing in a fart

fuck you, your hat is horrible (Neanderthal), Sunday, 8 October 2017 19:27 (one year ago) Permalink

Cutler threw a TD, great, that's all Gase will need to say "I've got the right guy in there". even tho Ajayi carried them that drive.

HOUSTON -- Texans defensive end J.J. Watt suffered a tibial plateau fracture in his left leg Sunday in the the Kansas City Chiefs' first drive of the game.

Watt fell to the ground while engaged in a block on the play. The Texans later announced the diagnosis.

seeing how much the pain was affecting watt, and imaging his pain tolerance relative to my own, i have come to the conclusion that i never ever want a tibial plateau fracture

miami cokey o line guy is somewhere on the sad-lol spectrum when you read more about it. also, with the demands on nfl coaching staff i could easily imagine there being a v fucked up pervasive drug culture. another gift from the league that just keeps on giving.

from a football pov, as someone mentioned on twitter, the fins have 3 first round picks on their o line and it has been p bad, so this guy might not be a great loss.

Re: Fall Meeting/National Anthem

We live in a country that can feel very divided. Sports, and especially the NFL, brings people together and lets them set aside those divisions, at least for a few hours. The current dispute over the National Anthem is threatening to erode the unifying power of our game, and is now dividing us, and our players, from many fans across the country.

I’m very proud of our players and owners who have done the hard work over the past year to listen, understand and attempt to address the underlying issues within their communities. At our September committee meetings, we heard directly from several players about why these issues are so important to them and how we can support their work. And last week, we met with the leadership of the NFLPA and more players to advance the dialogue.

Like many of our fans, we believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem. It is an important moment in our game. We want to honor our flag and our country, and our fans expect that of us. We also care deeply about our players and respect their opinions and concerns about critical social issues. The controversy over the Anthem is a barrier to having honest conversations and making real progress on the underlying issues. We need to move past this controversy, and we want to do that together with our players.

Building on many discussions with clubs and players, we have worked to develop a plan that we will review with you at next week’s League meeting. This would include such elements as an in-season platform to promote the work of our players on these core issues, and that will help to promote positive change in our country. We want to ensure that any work at the League level is consistent with the work that each club is doing in its own community, and that we dedicate a platform that can enable these initiatives to succeed. Additionally, we will continue the unprecedented dialogue with our players.

I expect and look forward to a full and open discussion of these issues when we meet next week in New York. Everyone involved in the game needs to come together on a path forward to continue to be a force for good within our communities, protect the game, and preserve our relationship with fans throughout the country. The NFL is at its best when we ourselves are unified. In that spirit, let’s resolve that next week we will meet this challenge in a unified and positive way.

Roberto Spiralli, Wednesday, 11 October 2017 18:56 (one year ago) Permalink

I'm pretty sure I said it last year on one of the threads for Kaepernick, the players need to turn the kneel into a prayer circle and then do some press releases and talk that they are going to continue to kneel and while do so, pray for peace, justice and safety of first responders and military.

Let the crowd boo that. I'd imagine this is happening some now, but if it was made apparent and widely done, it might change the optics.

Depends on how bad it gets, I would figure. They are a pretty decent 0-5 team, don't think they are the worst team in football by a few clubs.

earlnash, Wednesday, 11 October 2017 23:43 (one year ago) Permalink

they're in the bottom 5 easy

Mordy, Wednesday, 11 October 2017 23:57 (one year ago) Permalink

well they have no receivers left, eli is much diminished and getting hit every time he drops back, and the defensive backs are quitting. several of these things aren't mcadoo's fault, but i'm not sure he's capable of fixing them

i don't see them winning in denver, then they have seahawks and rams at home. i guess they could win one of those?

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21003209/rishard-matthews-tennessee-titans-done-playing-football-forced-stand-national-anthem

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews appears to be absolute in his decision to stay inside during the national anthem, saying he is willing to give up his profession rather than being forced to change his protest over social issues.

On Thursday afternoon, Matthews was asked by Matt Parker, a local Nashville producer, via Twitter if he would continue to remain in the locker room during the anthem if the NFL created a rule requiring players to stand or face a penalty.

"No, I will be done playing football," Matthews responded.

Matthews, who hit the field for the Titans' Thursday afternoon practice, quickly deleted the tweet. He was not available for reporters during locker room availability Thursday.
