    I will agree with you that AB pulled a lot of crap to get off the Raiders.

    Some players get drafted out of college and have no hope of being on a team that is trying to win. Look at the Clippers under the douche bag Sterling. The team had no ambition to win, had no desire to re-sign players after their rookie deal was done. Sterling was content to let the franchise tank and hope the value of the Clippers would keep rising. Kind of like the A's under Billy Beane managing for the bottom line.

    Which was where much of the bad coaching and questionable play calling I referred to.

    Cleveland’s coach doesn’t exactly inspire confidence.

    Tonight's Thursday night football pits the Eagles (1-2) at the Packers (3-0). This game will be on Amazon prime in addition to NFL network and Fox affiliates.

    So far (halftime), for a change, it has actually been a fun TNF game to watch. Though the playing has not been great and there have been quite a few penalties and errors, at least it's very high scoring (21-20)!

    Gotta be better than the Genesis shitshows on Monday nights.

    Unless somebody is offended between now and then and they back out or get fired.

    No kidding! No one could seem to figure out what constitutes "pass interference" (either offensive or defensive). Not the players. Not the coaches. Not the announcers. Not the refs. Not the NFL replay officials. Even when a replay clearly showed what I (and i suspect many others) thought was clearly interference, it wasn't called. Except when on other plays it was. :dunno

    The league needs to fix this asap!

    They're 2-2 and trending upwards after beating a good Green Bay team. The last three or four years the Packers couldn't stop anybody on defense. Their secondary has been awful even after spending on early big draft picks. Is it a coaching problem, a GM problem, or have they just have been unlucky?

    My analysis of their defense after watching last nights game is: THEY SUCK!

    Not sure they’re back, but at least they’re not circling the bowl.

    How about Tampa Bay today. They're looking pretty NFLy.
