Can somebody wake me when Jibba Jones' speech is over?

 

And to think we could have had an OL (or DL), than that ol' skeletor.

Just comes to show that even when a team's desperate, they still will avoid Kaepernick. I bet Jared Lorenzen would get another shot before he does.

And yet that's still an overwhelming--yet extremely vocal--minority of the U.S. population.  Colin Kaepernick is a bust, pure and simple.  I saw his play in 2013, and aside from his scrambling, he wasn't very good.

Early on in training camps, NFL teams are losing players left and right to injury and retirement. Ravens, Giants, Dolphins, Chiefs, Patriots, the list goes on and on of teams who have lost important personnel in the past week. Every year, I clench my butt a little tighter at the thought of potential training camp injuries for my beloved Patriots.

 

If your team has suffered injury in the past few years, my heart goes out to you... unless you're a Cowboys fan.

I hope nobody gets injured as well, especially the Cowboys

so after 8 days of retirement Branden Albert decided he wants back with the Jags. Wonder if it had to do with giving up whatever money he was supposed to get? lol

Apparently, it has more to do with the fact that he'll OWE the Dolphins 3 million if he retires. Way to check with your agent about your contractual details prior to announcing your retirement, Brandon Albert.

I actually expect Jay Cutler to do reasonably well. I mean, at least on par with Ryan Tannehill. Ryan Tannehill sucks. 

 

Funnier yet, I'd put $10 down on if Jay Cutler finds a way to help beat New England, he boots Tannehill from his job indefinitely.

Jay Cutler sucks too. Every 5 or 6 games he looks like the greatest QB who has ever lived................and then he goes right back to launching interceptions for the rest of his games. You'll probably enjoy watching him QB against your team if you catch him on the right day.

Yet, sadly, he leads the Bears all-time in most of the passing categories lol.

The most obvious gripe about Jay Cutler is his lack of leadership skills. He's not inspiring anyone to work harder. I get that a QB is most favorably viewed when he's also the spirited leader type, but that just isn't everybody.

 

I don't think Jay Cutler is actually a bad QB. He's not great, but he isn't bad. When he's with an OC that actually plays to his strength, he's even pretty good. Jay Cutler has had many OCs not try to play to his strengths. If you look back at games when Jay Cutler was with the Broncos, there is every reason to believe that guy could have had a stellar career in the function of QB, but without the ra-ra team building and leadership traits of some of his contemporaries.

 

Jay Cutler on the Dolphins not only makes sense because of the coach pairing from his most successful days in Chicago, but because he's not being asked to be the team leader and galvanize a squad. That's not his job in this position as a fill-in QB, which I think is actually going to help Cutler excel beyond the tepid disappointment that we've come to know from him.

6 games for Elliott. Ouch!

 

Too much I think, even as much of an Eagles fan I am lol.

 

How 'bout them Cowboys?! I'm looking forward to seeing if Jerry Jones brings a legal force against the NFL. 

 

Dudes, it doesn't pay to beat your ladies.

Awesome. So maybe it gets reduced to 5 or 4 games. Good luck with that! As it is now, 6 games + 1 bye week = No Zeke until Week 8.

 

At this point, considering this Zeke problem, other suspensions or bumbled releases (Whitehead), and potential sophomore slump for Dak Prescott as the pressure on him gets amplified... I'll be impressed if the Cowboys even make it to the post-season.

 

I also think Jerry Jones pulls a Donald Trump, and if Jason Garrett doesn't make this team win, he'll be blamed for all of this dysfunction and shown the door.

Day after playing in the Bills' first preseason game they trade both Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby away for a pair of picks in 2018's draft. Watkins to Rams, Darby to the Eagles. Seems like they're making no effort to play well this season lol

The Bills have officially become the Sixers of the NFL. Trust the Process and trade all your good player to get them draft picks and assets.

so my thoughts from what i saw from the Chiefs-49ers game last night: Run Defense is still porous as hell, Mahomes seems to be pretty good. Vick as an intern coach is still a little controversial, but is doing a decent job teaching the QBs. Kareem Hunt is pretty impressive.

Frankly, and I'm as die hard a Cowboys fan that there is, if he did do this, 6 games isn't close to enough.

      ** on-field can include from the sidelines, too (like Drew Stanton, or something).
       
      A few that come to mind (for me), are:
       
      Tim Harris
      Justin Tucker

      This is the 3rd seasonal release of Ken Griffey Presents: Major League Baseball 2017.  If you enjoyed 2015 and 2016, you'll love 2017!
       
      The game-play and everything else carries over from the previous versions.  There is one major difference from the previous versions: the Homerun Derby.  In 2015, the Derby retained the original participants (Nick Noheart, Can O'Corn, etc).  In 2016, these were replaced with baseball legends like Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth.  In 2017, these have been replaced by the participants in last season's MLB Homerun Contest (Giancarlo Stanton, Adam Duvall, Corey Seager, Mark Trumbo, and Todd Frazier).
       
      Also, I did change up a few of my formulas to (hopefully) closer represent their respective players, namely pitcher speed and control.
       
      Enjoy!
