Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

The Seasquawks slogged through a couple of rough games against inferior opponents. Being able to pull out a win when you don't have your 'A' game that day is not a bad thing for a team to be able to do. This isn't college where style points matter, a win is a win.

This is where I've been at with NE most of the year. Good teams find a way to win. Yesterday ended as a blowout, but it was even midway through the 3rd quarter.

It boggles my mind how people take things so seriously.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

Chiefs are going to need to really practice, watch some footage and get ready during the Bye. I don't think Denver is going to be an easy team for them to take on and remain undefeated. At this point I'm sure we'll see the post-season it's just now a matter of by how much and if we can win the division and get homefield advantage in the play-offs. Come on, Chiefs. The defense and special teams can't do all of the scoring.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

How big of an asshole do you have to be to say those things to a teammate, even if you think it's just hazing?

That voicemail quote is pretty shocking. Way worse than what Riley Cooper said, not even a comparison.

In Trestman I Trust(TM)

Under the previous regime, the Packers would have steamrolled the Bears by a score of 45-3 even without Rodgers, with McCown getting sacked a dozen times and the offense mustering up about 120 yards. Trestman really is the QB Whisperer.

As for that situation in Miami, even if Incognito's done with the Dolphins, some team in need of a new member of the O line WILL pick him up, he'll claim to have gone through some sort of sensitivity training, and all will be forgiven. You can bet on it.

They've officially gone way past the hazing and have now moved into unbridled racist hatred. They have a problem there.

I sat at work and listened to a lot of sports talk radio yesterday and listening to all these former players was nauseating especially Golic. It's like every single one of them had to put out this disclaimer first saying something like "well if it would have been me, I would have hit him in his face, but um yeah this is bad." Yean, good luck on getting that culture changed NFL.

If you are a rookie, all that should be asked of you is that you know your job, put out the maximum effort in practice and stay out of trouble off the field. You shouldn't be expected to fist fight a veteran player because he is an asshole.

If another team wants him, the NFL will probably require him to take sensitivity training just to be reinstated into the league.

As far as the Bears, their 2nd string is as good as Green Bay's 2nd string, what with all the injuries both teams have.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I did like the commentary last night on ESPN, which discussed the reasons why Incognito has been suspended and not simply cut from the team: he's in the final season of his contract, and if he was cut the Dolphins would have to pay out his remaining contract. But since the league has a policy in place for suspended players due to improper activities (with a 4 game unpaid suspension), they can keep him on the suspended list and he forfeits his salary. So it ends up being cheaper for them to just keep him on the team and not pay him.

Different tactic, same result. He's not playing games, AND he's not getting paid. Plus, since he's suspended, no other team would be able to pick him up off waivers, not that any teams would be willing to sign up for the negative PR right now.

Re: NFL Discussion - 2013 Season

I'm not shedding any tears for Incognito, he's a piece of crap. Anyone who deliberately tries to injure other players doesn't belong in the NFL. It's brutal enough as it is without assholes like Incognito or Ndamukong Suh deliberately trying to injure people.
