    The Eagles have traded Zach Ertz to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for cornerback Tay Gowan and a 2022 fifth round draft pick.

    So, no big deal or anything.

    Right, I don't see anyone challenging them. If the Bucs get into the playoffs Brady will find a way. I would love to see a Bucs/Chargers SB.

    I wouldn't be so quick to give Tampa the trophy. Father Time is undefeated, and TB12 is already past his expiration date.

    They could lose the SB, but I'll bet you a dollar they'll be in the SB.

    Number One. Owner Jeff Lurie being too meddlesome in the offensive philosophy. Lurie is a big analytics guy and he is on record saying that analytics “proves” that the running game is overrated and essentially not that important to a successful offense. To which I say, well the greatest QB of all time and three outstanding receivers in AB, Godwin and one more (who’s name I don’t feel like looking up right now) and TB still gave the ball to Fournette an awful lot [EDIT: Fournette followed up a 110-yard, one touchdown performance against the Dolphins in Week Five with 127 yards and two scores on Thursday night. (From ProFootballTalk). END EDIT]. If the run game isn’t important, then why waste salary cap and a roster space for the three RBs they have? Just get a few more WRs or TEs...

    Number Two. GM Howie Roseman, aka Grima Wormtongue, making horrible roster decisions easily 80% of the time and the only GM that I know of who has survived 4 head coaches without a hint of his job being in jeopardy. He too believes in pass first, pass always, no need for a run game philosophy.

    Number Three. I will bundle two in this one. Easily the weakest D I have ever seen, worse than Billy Davis under Chip Kelly, and the fact that our run game is non existent. Miles Sanders had 1 carry for 1 yard in three quarters.

    Hmmm, maybe an NFL offense that is a slight bit more complex than that of a high school team and a Defense a little more active than 11 traffic cones. The only reason that TB didn’t score more points is I think that the TB offense was exhausted from all the yards they were able to run.

    If the Cards win tomorrow and remain undefeated, it will be a miracle. A couple of injuries, and many positive Covid tests including Coach Kingsbury.....and just when the Browns decide to be a good team for a change.

    Got my Covid booster yesterday. No ill effects. Even if the vaccine doesn't work, getting it isn't a big deal. Why are these players being such pussies about this.

    Their O-Line looked like swiss cheese. Poor QB was pressured almost every down.

    Iím so tired of people saying the vaccine doesnít work. Itís not a 1 or 0, there are factors which have been confused by the CDC using data from older people that had been vaccinated 7 months ago. Plus proof has been antibody levels which is not the only factor. Proof is our numbers, but an mild infection isnít a bad thing.

    Haven't you heard? The vaccine enlarges one's testicles. That would make it difficult to wear an athletic supporter. Now excuse me while I do more "research."

    Are the Vikings the worst .500 team in the NFL?

    God..... Up 11 with 7 min left - miss FG - promptly give up 11 pts - including failing to hold on two fourth and longs on the tying drive....THEN...manage a "game winning' drive to only miss the FG again.

    And while I am happy for the W - fucking awful football over last 12 minutes....

    ^That game was a clown show, but certainly had its exciting moments. I don’t think the Panthers can win without McCaffrey.

    The Dolphins are horrible. They can't get a first down to save their lives. Awful. Terrible team. Fuck 'em. They deserve to lose.
