Rodgers looking like he's about to announce something on the Pat McAfee show, most likely just gonna whine about how everyone is reading too much into his overwrought IG posts

the "hottest coach in the NFC North" race just heated up with Viking's hiring of Kevin O'Connell, can he challenge Matt LeFleur's dominance????

he's hot for an NFL coach but no way

Matt LaFleur's handsomeness bothers me. it's like when Arnold Schwarzenegger used to play like, a random government worker. say what you will about Mike McCarthy but that dude had the perfect NFL coach look

frogbs, Tuesday, 22 February 2022 16:55 (nine months ago) link

he and Zim definitely had iconic old school unhealthy functional alcoholic NFL coach look

I understand why this is a bad thing but lets remember Ray Rice originally got 2 games for knocking out a woman in an elevator

frogbs, Monday, 7 March 2022 21:57 (eight months ago) link

For those keeping score

Major NFL suspensions:

Ray Rice: beating fiancé; 2 games
Adrian Peterson: felony child abuse; 6 games
Greg Hardy: beating gf; 10 games reduced to 4
Ezekiel Elliot: hitting women; 6 games

Calvin Ridley: 17 games for using FanDuel
Josh Gordon: 6 seasons for smoking weed

idk it's pretty self-explanatory why the nfl would punish football-related infractions more seriously than off-the-field things, especially since none of those heinous crimes committed by players threatened the nfl's bottom line. all they really have is the integrity of the results on the field, and if that is in doubt...

roflrofl fight (voodoo chili), Tuesday, 8 March 2022 00:59 (eight months ago) link

I get it but Ridley wasn’t with the team at the time, he bet a tiny fraction of a single game check, and the only bet he made involving his own team was for them to win. Yes he’s dumb for doing it but the NFL making an example out of him while also integrating sports betting into every single part of their broadcast feels a little off.

Also I would argue that their lax attitude towards domestic violence did affect their bottom line but who knows how much exactly

frogbs, Tuesday, 8 March 2022 01:54 (eight months ago) link

sure, i’m not arguing that they’re paragons of moral rectitude, but they aren’t dumb

i don't understand this argument at all. as a term of my employment i am restricted from making certain financial transactions, e.g. i am not allowed to participate in an IPO. this is reasonable given the issues that can arise from a perceived conflict of interest--i don't expect to have access to absolutely everything that the average investor does, and i have no idea why an nfl player would or should expect to be able to gamble on his own sport without consequence.

well there are two ex-coaches alleging they were literally paid to throw games so throwing the book instead at a guy who bet $1500 on dumb parlays via the app you're pumping on every single commercial break...idk it ain't a great look. can't imagine the NFL enjoys looking like big hypocrites!!!

frogbs, Tuesday, 8 March 2022 04:52 (eight months ago) link

i agree with you that those owners should also be subject to severe punishment!

call all destroyer, Tuesday, 8 March 2022 12:24 (eight months ago) link

anyways in other news looks like Rodgers is staying with GB and getting paid an insane amount to do so

hate that I'm gonna be forced to cheer for him for another 4 years but this is obviously the right move for them

frogbs, Tuesday, 8 March 2022 16:48 (eight months ago) link

Russell to the Broncos...good for him

frogbs, Tuesday, 8 March 2022 19:11 (eight months ago) link

this makes Derek Carr the worst QB in the AFC West. he's gotta be the best worst divisional quarterback ever

frogbs, Wednesday, 9 March 2022 03:37 (eight months ago) link

jon bois tweeted that earlier...jameis in a division with brees cam and matt ryan arguably beats him out?

symsymsym, Wednesday, 9 March 2022 05:04 (eight months ago) link

I think Carr is better than Jameis. isn't Jameis's best season the 30/30 one?

frogbs, Wednesday, 9 March 2022 05:10 (eight months ago) link

Wentz to the Washington....uhhh...Commanders

amusingly their Super Bowl odds actually dropped after the movie (60:1 -> 75:1)...don't think I've ever seen that happen before

unretiring should be banned

he took one look at that division lol

roflrofl fight (voodoo chili), Monday, 14 March 2022 11:57 (eight months ago) link

I suppose it is possible that Atlanta might be middling next year but yeah the Saints and Panthers are DOA.

ESPN radio was talking up a bit when I was tuning into Greenburg at round lunchtime that Mitch T. that he would get signed for more money than you might think. Kind of surprised the Steelers went that way, but hey maybe the second coming of Bubby Brister?

earlnash, Tuesday, 15 March 2022 00:58 (eight months ago) link

the Baker Mayfield era appears to be over

frogbs, Wednesday, 16 March 2022 02:11 (eight months ago) link

when you see all these teams salivating over watson, it makes giving up and signing trubisky seem kinda honorable

roflrofl fight (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 16 March 2022 02:24 (eight months ago) link

honestly I can see Mitch being good in Pittsburgh

frogbs, Wednesday, 16 March 2022 02:35 (eight months ago) link

As a Browns fan, I must say this REALLY sucks.

Mr. Snrub, Wednesday, 16 March 2022 09:05 (eight months ago) link

it makes giving up and signing trubisky seem kinda honorable

i don't think the steelers could justify replacing one abusive asshole qb with another

as for mitch, good luck behind that offensive line

mookieproof, Wednesday, 16 March 2022 15:25 (eight months ago) link

Trubisky might have a bit more talent than shown and maybe with the right place he might be good. It hasn't been a thing as much in the last decade or two in the era of 'superquarterbacks' but there is a pretty long standing history of QBs figuring it out later on.

Trubisky reminds me quite a bit of Rich Gannon in a way. I don't know if he will figure it out and be able to use those athletic skills, but it 'could happen' and the Steelers are about as stable as you can get in the NFL as a franchise.

I have always thought that people really under-estimate the luck of being on the right team when it comes to success in the NFL.

Steelers O-line stinks now, but it might not next year. Getting rid of Bigdollar BigBen salary should help on that somewhat.

I kinda hope Baker Mayfield goes to the Colts.

Bears are going to stick with Justin Fields, but Chicago already had the greatest Buckeye QB in Mike Tomczak and I don't think Fields will even end up as good as him (definitely won't last as long in the NFL).

earlnash, Thursday, 17 March 2022 00:53 (eight months ago) link

Wentz having to go back to Philly playing for the Hatcats should be good for a laugh. Dude is mistake prone as all get out. If you can lead the league in rushing, he might be your guy but I don't think he is even as good as Jimmy G. in that respect.

earlnash, Thursday, 17 March 2022 00:55 (eight months ago) link

Uhhh what

Blockbuster: Packers are trading Pro-Bowl WR Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders for two prime 2022 picks, league sources tell ESPN.

— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 17, 2022

frogbs, Thursday, 17 March 2022 23:44 (eight months ago) link

I don’t really understand this move from either side. The Packers got a good haul but are trying to sell out to win a title the next 3-4 years and the way they do that is through their insane passing offense. Their best guy now is uh…Lazard? Are they gonna make a run at OBJ and his torn ACL? For the Raiders idk if this puts them over the top and “the best receiver in football” probably will not look as hot going from Rodgers to Carr. In fact none of Rodgers’ receivers looked all that good on other teams. Maybe Adams will turn out to be durable but this contract is probably gonna look really bad in a couple years. Oh well, I wish him the best of luck

frogbs, Friday, 18 March 2022 00:47 (eight months ago) link

Makes sense to me. The Raiders lost their best receiver to vehicular manslaughter so they needed a guy.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Friday, 18 March 2022 00:54 (eight months ago) link

Sure but that’s the kind of trade/contract you give out when you think you’re only one guy away

frogbs, Friday, 18 March 2022 01:01 (eight months ago) link

I guess Carr and Adams did have a pretty good connection in college but that was like 8 years ago

frogbs, Friday, 18 March 2022 01:05 (eight months ago) link

GB has to pay Rodgers, so they cut costs.

Raiders still playing by Al's rules...gotsta have speed on the outside baby...Cliff Branch etc. Not like it matters much, they are not going to go anywhere.

earlnash, Friday, 18 March 2022 03:13 (eight months ago) link

lmao GOT HIM

Davante Adams was like a brother to Aaron Rodgers, so this trade makes sense.

very classy

Important contract note for Deshaun Watson, who got a 5-year, $230M contract. His base salary for 2022 is $1M, which means if he’s suspended, it’ll come out of that base.

WTF are the Chiefs doing???

Mr. Snrub, Wednesday, 23 March 2022 18:38 (eight months ago) link

saving some cash, getting some picks.

roflrofl fight (voodoo chili), Wednesday, 23 March 2022 19:41 (eight months ago) link

He's really good but at some point you got to re-load. They probably got a fair amount of cash also tied up with Travis Kelce.

Brown's suck for trading for Watson.

I think Baker Mayfield is getting a bit more of the blame than perhaps is warranted. He's not great and may never be, but that club is also obviously run by a bunch of clueless ding dongs. Whatever man...

earlnash, Thursday, 24 March 2022 00:30 (eight months ago) link

I like Baker and wanna give him the benefit of the doubt - he was clearly playing injured a lot of last year - but he also made some really boneheaded decisions. Like Mark Sanchez-esque. I wanna say getting off the Browns might help but that hasn’t exactly worked for their last 40 quarterbacks

frogbs, Thursday, 24 March 2022 01:22 (eight months ago) link

It would be rich if Mayfield did end up with the Steelers if Cleveland cuts him.

That would be worth seeing.

earlnash, Thursday, 24 March 2022 02:47 (eight months ago) link

would love him in the burgh tbh

crazy shit

so tom brady’s plan was to fake retire, become an executive with the dolphins, bring in sean payton to coach, then unretire but the brian flores lawsuit blew everything up https://t.co/YsEq5JfQJz pic.twitter.com/HkZTDRM3tm
