    It is so conflicting to be a Lions fan. I feel like making the Marge Simpson bet that everyone just has a good time.

    As long as they don't cut off alcohol sales in the 3Q, it could happen.

    Some teams are just a mess and will stay that way for a while. My Texans are horrible, with a dumbshit owner, Preacher Easterby seemingly having to much control, a million dollar QB who doesn't play (except with massage therapists), and a head coach that no one would have considered for the job (except for the Texans). I think the Texans are in the proverbial shithole for a while.

    The Bears and Lions have owners quite comfortable being mediocre or plain shit just so they can own a pro sportz team. It's their trophy possession that will never result in an actual trophy. The Jets owner may be in the same bucket AFAIK.

    The NFL needs to go full Adam Silver and push some owners TF out if they refuse to be competitive.

    I can't tell if Dan Snyder is this way as well. The Skins have been shit ever since he took over in 1999. Some rare close tastes of greatness occurred, but he could just never seem to keep is nose out of team ops and let his people do their jobs. The RGIII debacle vs Mike Shanahan's preference to Kirk Cousins was a perfect example of this. RGIII was Snyder's prize stallion and wanted to see him perform. Shanahan saw Cousins as the longer future of the team. Sadly, neither of them were all that and a bag of chips. At least Cousins is still playing though, for the Vikings, albeit at an average rate. I was sad to see him go.

    The first COVID rescheduled game, Raiders @ Browns moved from Saturday(?) to Monday late afternoon.

    Apparently 8 of the next 10 days have NFL games.

    And thanks to that, we’re not going to LA for the game anymore.

    Fuck Covid.

    A rather difficult task. And why would you want to?

    Is it too late in the season for the NFL to consider limiting stadium capacity or having no crowds whatsoever?

    Not the same thing, but the Montreal-Philadelphia NHL game on Thursday was played without fans.

    What happened to rookie season Mike Glennon? He has been terrible ever since.

    Detroit no longer in position to draft Aidan Hutchinson.

    Definitely wasn’t expecting help from Detroit today, but I’ll take it.

    I think they need to build a culture there more than any particular player in the draft.

    It helped that most of the Bucs front-line offensive weapons were out, but them's the breaks.

    I always love it when Brady gets that smug smile wiped off his face.

    He got benched for Mitch Trubisky.

    That would break any man.
