    Maybe not immediate, but with the way it has been going in the NFL, sooner rather than later. 


    And whether he's got good football left is the million dollar question.  Are you trading away picks and giving him a decent salary to find out?  And even with a decent OL in Philly, he still got hurt.


    If I'm Chris Ballard - maybe if I can get him for a couple of 2nds the closer I get to roster bonus day. I'd be concerned about the past injuries, but I'm sure any deal would include him passing a comprehensive physical. I'm also giving proper weight to the 2020 season based on OL and RB/WR injuries. Wentz was sacked 50 times in 13 games in 2020. Is that gonna happen with the Colts OL ? Not likely - biggest question is whether Wentz is the best option available.

    That might have played a part.  But the Eagles drafted his replacement prior to the season.


    Not sure they saw Hurts as an immediate replacement but Wentz did himself no favors this past year. I may be in the minority, but I think he's got 

    some good football left in him, especially behind a solid OL.

    You might be holding onto the past too much. Wentz has seriously regressed. He threw 16 TD's and 15 INT's last year. Rating of 72.8. 


    Trubisky has played better than that every single year of his career. He threw 16 TD's and only 8 INT's last year. Good for a 93.5 rating.


    I do think Wentz would probably be marginally better, but no, he is not that much of an upgrade and the Bears would do well to look for someone better. Wentz isn't going to miraculously revive his career. You might as well stick with who you got and draft someone or try to trade for someone better.


    I wouldn't be so sure about that considering his OL and main offensive weapons weren't available for much of 2020.

    Sounds as though there may be some impairment 😥

    Hopefully therapy will help a lot and the family will be able to afford the best.




    According to this from the KCPD, sounds like she's off the ventilator but unresponsive. Not good ...

    Can’t see Pittsburgh unless he only cares about playing with his brothers. The Big Ben situation looks like a mess and it’s hard to see them as a legit title contender with him under center.  
    Cleveland’s a possibility but I can’t see him picking Lil Baker if he wants to win a title.  
    Tennessee is legit.  I’d worry most about them.  


    Not sure how the Steelers would even restructure Ben's contract again unless they resign him past 2021 and he's owed a $15 million roster bonus in March. Wouldn't be surprised to see him retire or have the Steelers release him.  The Steelers could then either go after Darnold or let Rudolph / Haskins fight it out.

    I don't think it has any effect on the case against Reid.

    It may cloud the picture of auto insurance responsibility for the crash, depending on the arrangement under which Britt Reid was using the vehicle. 


    Fortunately that's not an immediate issue for the family thanks to the GoFundMe


    Per link in the above, the timeline for completing the investigation and deciding upon charges is 30 to 60 days



    And per the Kansas City Chiefs....Britt Reid is no longer employed by the team



    Apparently nepotism has its limits


    Not to make light of what happened to Ariel, but the collateral damage from this will extend to Britt Reid's own family and also Andy's. 


    I doubt if found guilty of any charges related to alcohol that he will ever be employable by the Chiefs or any other team in the NFL. He 

    already has a felony conviction which would make it tough to get any job, let alone a football job. I would find it hard to believe that Britt's 

    wife was not aware of his drinking but she obviously can't watch him while he's at the Chiefs' facility or anywhere else outside the home. 

    Financially this could ruin him and his family and I suspect Andy would move them out of KC as his kids are approaching school age and would 

    face the eventual taunting and harassment by classmates over their father. 


    If he goes to prison, I'm sure Andy will pick up their family expenses wherever they end up but a civil suit could run into the millions. 


    Lots at stake for all families involved but let's pray that Ariel recovers and has a normal life.

    I think they will be back. They are going to make the playoffs every year. I don't think they will be back in the big game every year but they will be in more Superbowls in the Mahomes era. I mean just not blowing every first round pick would have helped Seattle. If you want to know why they haven't been back look at their draft record since 2014. I'd be stunned if Mahomes never makes another. 


    Back in the day, lots of folks thought the same about Dan Marino.  Times change - coaches, injuries, personnel, etc.

    Coming to Buffalo ... from Tampa Bay ... is going to make him bigger as a brand? Um, OK.


    Too expensive this year.


    Can't see him leaving Brady.


    Agreed - Gronk's not going anywhere - by all accounts, he's really close to his mom and she's in Fort Myers. Wouldn't be surprised to see him take less $ to stay in Tampa and FL has no state tax.

    I will root against him because his family is deeply obnoxious, yes. 

    I root against opposing players for all sorts of reasons. Here's another reason that I'll root against Pat:



    Stuff you'll never hear Josh say

    They say every guy marries his mom.


    So far it's accurate for Mahomes, bottle blonde lucky enough to get knocked up by a pro athlete and somehow think she's special for it.


    A little harsh since she's been with him since high school ...

    Pretty much, This.


    I would be hella embarrassed as a Bills fan if Josh Allen's GF or siblings or Mom went off like that.  Just say you're proud of your man or son and leave it at that.


    I mean, complaining about the PHOTOS that Sportscenter posted?  Photos during the game?  Sheesh!


    Yes a couple of the calls were ticky-tack IMO.  But there was plenty of chance to win the game regardless. 


    And some of the calls were Right On, KC was just allowed to get away with that crap in the AFCCG.  Well, hey y'all, guess what - if Chris Jones doesn't blatantly foul an OLman, maybe you don't get flagged for personal foul.  If you don't actuall grab a WR running up the sideline and trip him in front of the ref before the ball gets there, maybe you don't get DH or DPI (forget which call that was). 


    Don't know why but I'm reminded of Patrick Reed's wife Justine when I see these two.

    Edit: this is a story that moved me when I read it, about a football player and his journey with addiction - from playing in 2 Superbowls, to sleeping under a bridge, being found by a young photojournalist who did a story on him, to getting sober and finding work and love.  The part that stayed with me from the "Happy Recovery" part of the story: "“It only takes one slip,” he said, “and I’ll end up right back where you found me."  And he did.  https://www.nola.com/entertainment_life/article_d32d7ad2-8140-502d-b65a-7c35d2aa8999.html

    Having an addiction, it must be hell.  But having someone you care about struggle with addiction, it's also hell.





    Great story about Jackie Stewart although not what I expected at the end. 


    Fact is everyone on the planet has their demons and some are just better equipped to keep them in the closets than others.

    If the standard is not being a criminal or dead then I suppose. I have 3 kids not sure I would consider just one of them dead or a drug addict a success.  


    If you believe the stories written while Reid was in Philly, sounds like Andy and his wife did everything humanly possible to help both the son that died and also Britt. Some kids are hell bent on self-destruction for whatever reason and there's nothing a parent can do to stop it ... especially when they get older.  One of the quotes from Garrett, the son that overdosed, was that he really enjoyed being a drug dealer in the Philly hoods and having everyone know who he was. You're right in that Andy was probably away a lot and the kids had a lot of time and $ on their hands and quite possibly that contributed to the mess we see now.

    He might be even if she doesn't. At this point based on his history and anecdotal evidence I would say he deserves it.


    Another point is Reid had another son die of an overdose and do jail time. I think it's safe to say a lot of NFL coaches are miserable parents. Any 24/7 job takes you away from your family is going to be a challenge. I imagine you have to have a plan and be very dedicated to whatever time off you have to be dedicated to them. 

    Even the "great" Tony Dungy went back and coached after his kid killed himself. I thought it was a scum bag move personally but I care about my family so what do I know. He had a enough money in his pocket to walk away from work forever, didn't even take the day. I've never really thought much of him since then. 


    There are hundreds of examples of NFL coaches and broken families. 


    I'd be onboard with this except Reid has 3 other kids who appear to have turned out OK.

    Dont be surprised if KC release Reid after this colossal tragedy that occurred days for the SB. Organizations must weigh risk vs reward. Right now, Reid  is a huge risk/PR nightmare  moving forward due the ongoing saga that continues to plague his family.

    They know his BAC. They are waiting to see which turn this poor child takes and then he will be charged accordingly.


    Sincerely doubt they will release Andy Reid due to an accident caused by his son. No doubt his son will be relieved of his duties. 


    Also, the police will wait until the investigation is complete and then charge Reid if warranted. They won't wait until they see if the girl recovers as it could be months.
