  1. Rams vs Seahawks (TNF)

    Yes. And Joe Buck says, they just got the play off. Couldn't believe it went unnoticed.
  2. Have you seen a worse trade in your league this year?

    yea, those facts don't help support his decision. although lately both those guys might be in better situations than Theilen. But he should definitely been looking to upgrade at rb, not wr.
  3. Have you seen a worse trade in your league this year?

    these questions and others. he's the worst team but it's early enough in the season, can he still find a way into the playoffs? Did he know about the recent news Barkley might be back sooner than everyone predicted? It appears by your sig, the league is PPR? In that case, Thompson isn't a slug. Easily a flex option many weeks, at least with all the byes coming up. . With Cooks, Rams haven't been scoring like maybe some think they should, but Cooks has been solid, he'd start every week in everyone's lineup. What's the rest of his lineup look like? If these two guys plug some holes, they could be important to his lineup going forward. I wouldn't trade Barkley away for those two, but if I was still under the impression he was out for another month, and I was desperate and thought I still had a chance this year, ya gotta do what ya gotta do sometimes.
  4. Roquan Smith

    Just watched a press conference he had on NFL channel. He seemed to handle himself well. Pretty much every answer tho, was..personal issue, it's been handled, it's in the past and we're moving forward. He also repeated it's a given he is playing this weekend. If Gil's rumor plays out, probably won't affect anything until later in the season at the earliest.
  5. DEN OLB Bradley Chubb tore acl

    It's a purposely misleading topic title. And it's not the first time you've done this. This forum used to be a place some came to and could find useful information. It hasn't been that for a while. You, are a big reason for that.
  6. DEN OLB Bradley Chubb tore acl

    when you're a dick.
  7. DEN OLB Bradley Chubb tore acl

    And you don't think he knew that when he posted?
  8. Antonio Brown done with the NFL

    If he ever had another shot at the NFL, he took a twitter shot at Kraft. What NFL owner is going to put up with that? He's done.
  9. Brown released by Patriots

    I know, I know, pick me, pick me wait, did he qualify for a Super Bowl ring?
  10. Brown released by Patriots

    I don't think there is a rule. Other then the NFL will pay for 150 rings, capped at $5000 each. Other then that, the team decides if they want to spend more then that, purchase more then 150. Some teams have had smaller ones made for various front office employees. It's all up to the team.
  11. Brown released by Patriots

    LOL. So can I. So can you. It would all be the same thing.
  12. Eli benched

    Giants announced rookie Daniel Jones as the team's Week 3 starter. And the crowd roars. It was an obvious transition once coach Pat Shurmur left the door open for a potential change on Monday, but the good news is the organization didn't hold back any longer despite being on the books for Eli Manning's $23.5 million in 2019. Danny Dimes most recently went 29-of-34 (85.3%) for 416 yards and two scores on just 60 snaps during the preseason. He'll likely battle uphill in his first start without Sterling Shepard (concussion) and Golden Tate (suspension), but it's the correct call to insert the No. 6 overall pick immediately. It's not farfetched to think Week 2 was the last start of Eli's career, finishing with a 116-116 regular season record over 16 seasons.
  13. PI replay

    Good question. It was a score so you would think it would be a booth review. But the refs made it clear it was a challenge. Either way, if they are "look at anything missed on the play" are they checking the o-line for holding?
  14. PI replay

    The Vikings had a td taken away after replay which was the difference in the game. It didn't even involve the catch itself. After replay they called Cooks for interference stating he was blocking after 5 yds. Questionable, he;d already been jammed at the line and as a 2nd defender came at him as he was crossing the end zone, he put his hands up to protect himself and got called for blocking. Meanwhile Diggs catches the pass and crosses the line for the td. It's one thing if the refs call it a pick play during the play, but now you can challenge a play like that? Not involved in the actual play at the ball? I'm not sure that is what the new rule was meant for...
  15. Did I miss something?

    The 2nd time the play by play on CBS.com gave Woods a td when it was Cooks. Guess they confused the 17 and 12.
  16. I'd wait til next week when you find out your team actually sucks. Dominant? lol. Your qbs suck. You have an injury prone rb. cook. You have a rookie Jacobs who has played one freakin game. and cohen. Who else? You need to find rbs. You do have some good wrs, trade for some rbs. quickly. before the rest of the league realizes you are desperate for rbs. You also don't have any TE's.
  17. Antonio Brown has frostbitten feet

    Well, that's not fair, what did Carr do to deserve that? Other then suck at being a QB? Wait...
  18. What round will you draft Josh Gordon?

    NFL is reinstating Patriots WR Josh Gordon, per Adam Schefter
  19. Message Board Leagues

    I'm back for league #1. I never received an email. It has my email listed, but has a 2nd person linked to the team. some Matt guy.
  20. Antonio Brown has frostbitten feet

    Clearly his old helmet did a poor job of protecting his brain.
  21. Robert Kraft busted!

    Soliciting a prostitute Gronk couldn't hook him up?
  22. Redskins acquired QB Case Keenum and a 2020 seventh-round pick from the Broncos in exchange for a 2020 sixth-round pick. For his troubles, Keenum is getting a $500,000 "restructure bonus" on top of his $7 million salary. To facilitate a trade, the Broncos have agreed to pay half of that. Keenum has agreed to waive the non-guaranteed $10.5 million he had been owed. It is probably the best Keenum and the Broncos could have hoped for. As for the Redskins, Keenum is an improvement on Colt McCoy but not much else. It's a decidedly modest Alex Smith fallback plan. Keenum predictably crash landed last season after his magical 2017 with the Vikings. It is going to be a long year in Washington.
  23. Jason Witten is back

    Jason Witten decided to end his retirement and return to the Cowboys. Witten left the team to join the Monday Night Football booth last May. "The fire inside of me to compete and play this game is just burning too strong," Witten said in a statement. "This team has a great group of rising young stars, and I want to help them make a run at a championship." Witten added this was "completely my decision," but his struggles in the booth likely played some role in his return. Even going on 37 (in May), Witten's return upgrades a nameless Cowboys tight end corps. Source: dallascowboys.com
  24. Who else is 0-2?

    0-2 in my local. Marc Bulger Shaun Alexander Julius Jones Joe Horn Michael Clayton Roy Williams Todd Heap Jason Elam Falcons Although I benched JJ for Warrick Dunn last week, which caused me to lose by .6.
  25. King Of The Mountain
