    Yeah, I’m aware of all that. But AB is a whole other level. :lol3

    Should be interesting.

    I actually doubt it will be "interesting". It usually isn't. I suspect either AB will quickly get his shit together, STFU, and play, or they will can him without fanfare. They have done this many times over the past 20 years.

    Fantasy football players with AB just went through a range of emotions today. Glad that he can't play tomorrow vs the Stiller's but sucks that he has Brady now.

    Tomlin has always been viewed as a "player’s coach" (read: push-over); this arguably has kept him from being more successful. Personally, I kind of like Tomlin, but I don't think he has what it takes to be an all-time great NFL coach. BB, on the other hand, really cares not for individual players; his only focus is winning. Personally, I kind of dislike BB, but there is no doubt that he has what it takes to be an all-time great. And it is fun to be a fun of a winning team.

    BB is one of the best coach pretty much ever...right there with Lombardi, funny how everyone is trying to find the next Mcvay instead of someone like BB...well the Texans are trying but just looking dumber every year. Push over errr players coaches are going to be the new thing dealing with these ego maniac players that only care about themselves. To me the biggest assets BB has are not on the field but in the front office to find and keep talent...well also sign the biggest douche bag out there to. Lol


    Try being a Packer fan, 2 HOF QBs and 2 SB wins is pitiful, after they won the Superbowl they signed their extensions and then did nothing to help Rogers win. Our GM was barely with it the last 4 years, the DC sucked thou had very little talent to work with and Mcfatty lost the team because he wouldn't change anything. Those guys are all gone but IMO Murphy who needed to makes these changes years ago and didn't needs to go to. So while you enjoyed them building around Brady we got nothing except wasting a great players career.

    Thank God I found that old helmet! Now he is ours. And he will make outstanding plays that will irritate the crap out of everyone! I can't wait.
    I think it was said here, not going back to look, that he is no Jerry Rice. If you look at his stat's., he is on pace to best Jerry's records.
    If you honestly look at it, he was a great player and teammate until the Burrfuct hit. The last two years he has been a little weird, but he is still possibly the most athletic WR to play the game. He does have amazing talent and is a threat on every play. I could not be happier, and am glad I found that helmet.

    In fact, I would not put it past BB to have engineered this whole drama to obtain him on the cheap. He knows how to win, and win, and win, and win, and win.......

    More Saving, More Doing.........

    I’m not sure if BB engineered it, but they seemed to have an agreeable package put together pretty quick. I think AB wanted the Pats all along (ring!) but had to go thru the motions to get there.
    At any rate, Brady and AB are on my fantasy team so........go get ‘em boys!

    AB Raiders Contract: 3 yr(s) / $50,125,000 Signing Bonus $1,000,000 Average Salary$16,708,333 Guaranteed:$30,125,000 Free Agent:2022 / UFA
    AB Patriots Contract: 1 yr(s) / $15,000,000 Signing Bonus - Average Salary$15,000,000 GTD at Sign:- Total GTD:$9,000,000 Free Agent:

    For Antonio Brown, he lost at least $1.67mm this year and he'll be a free agent at the end of the year. If the Pats make the playoffs, he'll make that money back.

    I'm loving that the hated Redskins are jumping all over the equally hated Eagles.

    Go Cowboys.

    My gawd how boring the NFL has become. Used to watch whatever game was on every Sunday. Lasted 20 minutes today of one game then shut it all off after the the endless replays and endless boring as hell play analysis every (STFU Aikman!) play. :snore

    It looks like it was over when the equipment bags were loaded in Pittsburg.

    They did keep the murdering tight end for a while.

    (Man was Seattle lucky today. By the way, after a lifetime of watching football, I no longer have any clue what makes for an incomplete pass versus a fumble.)
