  3. But they ARE in the NFL. A game that is very violent and takes it toll on a human body. You cannot compare a person who has spent his life taking shots to the head to that of a casual. No matter the circumstances. Are we're just going to ignore this https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/07/25/sports/football/nfl-cte.html I'm gonna put a little bit of my personal life out there (which I NEVER do) just to prove a serious point here.. As a middle-aged man now who has suffered NUMEROUS head injuries over the years....I can't tell you how far from the truth this is.

  6. Uncomfortable ? How about embarrassed and ashamed ? I still think the NFL covered their azzes because that play, just like the Seattle debacle, directly affected a W-L. Had they admitted an error, the outrage would have been non-stop

  7. Packer fan here, but I will be praying for this kids mental well being. I hope they can diagnose this and get him treated. Mental illness is not something we like to deal with as a society, but hopefully he can get help and speak out about it troubles and the help he hopefully gets.

  8. All I know is it's BS. "Protecting" Alex Smith from that Matthews hit and not "protecting" Rodgers from that Payne bodyslam just feels like legalized betting is already impacting games. It's a penalty that can be thrown indiscriminately at any time in any game to majorly impact the outcome, and that's a step towards me being able to do what I did to the NBA to the NFL.

  10. So I'm gonna take a different angle here. Ugly: We are 0-3 with more than enough issues to work out. Bad: But we've been "mostly" competitive in all 3, with a new scheme and turmoil. It's not pretty, but there are certainly worse teams. We've just got to close games. Good: We're only 1 game behind New England, so I'm staying blissfully ignorant and saying that a WC spot isn't out of the question yet. Truth is, we are 0-3, but Miami and LA both appear pretty good and Denver's D isn't terrible either. And it's not unfair to say we "should" have won all 3. It's not too late

  11. No no no. You don't let him go. Not right now, at least. You're basically saying you're washing your hands of him if you release him. That's the absolute LAST thing you do to him right now.

  13. Raiders fans right now: Browns fans right now: The object of their anger: The object of our affection: It's Week 4, and our game matters! We might even talk football. Chucky is 0-3, and Baker is undefeated.

  14. The wait is over and our beautiful baby boy, the Ginger Jesus himself, Carson Wentz is back. Here is file footage of all the jorts I went through on Sunday Now could this be the week that Wentz's #1 target returns to the lineup? And from the "How the hell is this team 2-1" files comes out opponent THE TENNESSEE TITANS They are a team with 1 QB with a broken head and another with a noodle arm, but since the Eagles' defense takes road games off they will somehow score 30 points in a game that we hope they can magically pull out at the last

  15. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/24792942/competition-committee-look-roughing-passer-penalties After some rather embarrassing flags on pure football plays, the NFL's competition committee has realized they went too far with emphasizing the rule that has apparently been around since 1995 (per link to the article) but only became an issue after Aaron Rodgers couldn't take a hit. It appears that no official change to the rule is likely during the season, but with the discussions ongoing and bringing officials in, it seems rather clear that they will tell the refs to throw flags on act

  16. Elite pass rushers mean nothing! QBs are walking around with one leg surviving elite pass rushes in this leauge. I do not have awful QB luck. Vastly different situation.

  17. Mental illnesses are terrifying since we still struggle to diagnose and treat them correctly. I sincerely hope Griffen can get back to the field but at a minimum hope he can get back to normal outside of it. He's always seemed like a fun guy to be around (unless your lined up on the opposite side of him before the snap of course). You guys are spot on with this being far greater than football - get well soon Griffen.

  18. EXCELLENT break down of Mariota, Taywan, and Jonnu in this article. Highly recommend the read for those of you interested in seeing the game broken down. Vrabels got these boys playing some sound football.

  25. The issue is, I think the refs are calling the rule as best they can, but it's just a really bad rule. Some of the penalties thrown for hits on Ben last night were absurd, if you don't bring him down shoulder to body like that, how are you supposed to bring him down, he's huge.

  26. They just need to change the rules. The most exciting play on defense outside of the pick 6 and safety, is the QB sack. The NFL by catering to the QB too much is ruining the excitement of great defense and thus the product itself. Adding the extra controversy is a bad idea. Because it’ll only buy the NFL time to keep this rule in play just with a slightly different enforcement. Whereas if fans continue to be in uproar over this rule, there is a chance (however slight) that the NFL will be forced to adjust the verbiage of the rule to something that isn’t so heavily enforced.

  27. Not only does he have Enough Arm Strength.....something different I notice about the ball he throws.....that I think will help in Cleveland. Look at all the passes he threw when he was setting his feet...the balls comes out in an ULTRA tight spiral. Which I think will help him a LOT when the weather gets bad, the tighter the spiral the less wind gusts and precipitation will affect the pass. I think it also "evens" out things a bit, for instance...Josh Allen throws a football more MPH's than Baker, but Baker throws a football with more RPM's than he does. I think both are a function of being ab

  38. The Patriots are 1-2. The Steelers are 1-1-1. The Vikings are 1-1-1 and should be 1-2. The Falcons are 1-2 and have lost three of their defensive stars to IR. The Saints are 2-1 but could easily be 0-3. This season has NOT started the way we want, but it's way too early for this kind of existential dread.

  39. Absolutely. The other two guys are largely stashes...Stills is a bona fide wr bye week filler in a 12 team league along with a low end flex play for me on most weeks. His value is way higher.

  40. RoJo got hit at or behind the LOS on almost every carry. I mean it’s time to give him a shot. Baber is ok but we need a legit RB1 who keeps teams honest. Maybe it’s RoJo, maybe it’s not, but it’s time to find out. Do some read option with him, whatever. Just try and get a running game.
