    And who was QB for that 20 years and as a follow up when did the said “rebuild” begin?

     

    Yes, obviously Brady was a huge part of it.  After losing the best QB in NFL history, every team is going to take a step back.  They had to hit the reset button and basically start over.  They were an old team, and signed a lot of players chasing a Super Bowl.  Now a lot are retired, or moved on once Brady left.  

     

    And, they're now in QB purgatory.  The same as every other team in the NFL until they happen upon "the guy."  They were a middle of the road team the last few years with a hot garbage roster.

    People actually debated whether it was Belichick or Brady…

     

    They were top of the league for 20 years.  Every team rebuilds at some point.  It's not like Belicheck suddenly can't coach.

    Thanks for the "home game" NFL.  And giving the Jags the huge two weeks in London advantage.  Would have been a different story if in Buffalo where it should have been.  Have to wonder if the injuries also were contributed to by virtue of brain not fully in gear.

     

    Every team is getting "home" games in London,  until they officially move Jacksonville there.  Just the way it works. With the 17 game schedule,  done teams get 9 home games and some get 8. It rotates every year.

    No.  Rates were normal until Bindeflation ***** everything up.  You like paying more for everything?   Honestly, it's completely unbelievable somebody could be so brainwashed.   But it probably doesn't impact someone like you who takes handouts on the backs of the worker.  What a mess.        

     

    Biden definitely made inflation worse, but the COVID rates of 2% on home loans were way lower than "normal."  Same with gas prices.  Gas fell to around $1.60 here during COVID, which was great, but also not "normal."  

     

    Why is Trump never involved in the inflation talk?  He gave out more COVID money than Biden.

  5. I had the same issue years ago.  Ended up having to have a tube put in my left ear because no amount of decongestants or antibiotics worked.  They actually tried to do the tube in the office, but they couldn't get through my eardrum, so I did have to do outpatient surgery.  It's like a 15 minute surgery.  Well worth it as fluid in your ear that long can cause major damage.

     

    As a side note, I have had several major ear surgery previously for separate issues, but the cause of all the issues was an eustachian tube that would close from time to time, causing various infections and such.

    If true, it needs looked into for sure.  That article is mostly crap by the headline alone.  There is nothing in the entire thing that is "sex" related.  Just a catchy headline with no backing.

     

    if she did indeed kick back money for no service provided, it needs looked into and prosecuted if true.  And anyone else who did the same thing.  Most are corrupt enough to try this garbage.

    What was he supposed to do? I don’t know, walk away and get security? Novel idea I know.

     

    Right, I don't disagree with that, but that changes a bit when the other guy puts his hands on him.  No one should be putting their hands on anyone. Why is the Charger's fan a "tough guy" when the other guy started the physical altercation.

    Guys, I think we need to consider the possibility that White has played his last down with us. Achilles are hard to rehab. I will not be shocked if White is a trade candidate 

     

    I'd say a cut candidate.  Not many teams are going to trade for a guy coming back from injury, especially one that serious if it is truly torn.

    Real tough guy beating up a guy that can’t even stand.

     

    The Raiders fan put hands on him first.  The Chargers fan did hit him, but also laid off until the guy kept coming back.  Idiots on both sides, but the Raiders fan's buddies/family should be stopping him.  Without context of what started the altercation, what was he supposed to do?

     

    If you can't maintain a level of decency because you feel the need to get stumbling drunk at a game, then don't go to a game.

    So nice to wake up and this AM the Cheaters still a miserable trash franchise with fat miserable cheating POS legacy-tarnished HC and miserable trash POS benched QB

     

    A trash franchise with 6 Super Bowls?  They are obviously bad right now, and probably will be into the near future, but come on now.

    The logic is sound. 

     

    It’s about the bills playing a top five team this weekend. To this point neither to the chiefs or bills have played a top five team.

     

    The bills can jump the Chiefs and the dolphins this weekend.

     

    Yes, the Bills beating the Dolphins this weekend would be the strongest win, so yes, at that point it would make sense.  But beating the Jets doesn't hurt the Chiefs. 

  11. 1 hour ago, Sammy Watkins' Rib said:

     

    Yep. And the Bills are favored by 3 this Sunday over the team that most people in the sports world have as the "best team in the league" and that team is coming off a 70 point performance.

     

    We will know soon enough which team is the best in the league. Bills or Dolphins.

     

    Chiefs have the Jets and 49ers have the Cardinals. Won't learn anything good about either of those two contenders. 

     

    So the Chiefs are penalized for playing the Jets, while the Bills lost to the Jets and aren't?  Not trying to pick a fight, but the logic there is ludicrous. 

     

    3 weeks into the season, the Power Rankings are mostly pointless as the sample size isn't big enough.  Some schedules are front loaded and others are back loaded, so it's hard to rank teams.

    Marvin Harrison Jr injured…

     

    FALLS IN THE DRAFT TO 32 OVERALL.

     

    Go Bills

     

    Pretty sure you could remove one of Harrison's legs and he'd go higher than 32.

    He wasn't changing the subject: he was providing an example of criminality by the leader of the Dem party.  That you simps are justifing it because "he gave them back as soon as he knew" tells me how serious to take you all.

     

    But that works both ways.  If you think it's criminal that Biden did it, but don't care that Trump did it, that's the same thing.  

     

    It sure appears that most Presidents take documents they shouldn't, and then try to make it appear as though it was accidental.  I am sure some are.  But I am also sure that most aren't accidental.  That's a separate debate.  But it is an escalation when the documents Trump had were requested to be returned, and he didn't.  That is an issue.

    Doesn't Trump, as President, have the ability to declassify documents as he sees fit?

     

    Yes, if he takes the proper steps to do it.  It can't be after the fact, and it can't be "I thought it."

    I didn't think the facemask penalties were much of anything. He went for a stiff arm and his fingers got caught in the grill. Don't think those would be worth a fine let alone suspension. 

     

    https://x.com/MySportsUpdate/status/1703965949466915246?s=20

     

    I know the league takes contact with an official pretty seriously, but going so far as to suspend a "star" QB ? I don't think there was enough here for that

     

    The first facemask wasn't an issue until he tried to throw the guy by the facemask.  Just a stupid over reaction.  The 2nd I didn't feel like was much of anything.  RBs do the same thing all the time with no call.

     

    As far as the official, he will get fined I'm sure, but people saying he "shoved" him aren't being honest.  He did grab him, which isn't ok, but he didn't forcefully push him.

    I said he must've been in shock myself. Only thing I could come up with. 

     

    Read my last post. I corrected myself. But if the ball is thrown 5 yards out of bounds and is impossible to catch in bounds, it's determined "uncatchable" therefore what happened in the field of play has no bearing on the outcome. It's in the rules. 

     

    The refs didn't rule it uncatchable though.  They can signal a pad uncatchable. They didn't.

    Not if you play money line also

     

    There are 50 college football games every week .  You can bet teams that are -350 moneline...  Massive favorites 

     

    Hawaii vs Stanford ... Stanford -350... I'll just put $2,000 on that money line.   Thats an easy 450 bucks

     

    And yeah 70% of those bets hit 

     

    Friend has been an Oklahoma booster for 25 years and he makes $50,000 a year gambling college football

     

    I was 13 and 3 on the bills money line last year lol I took them to win every game

     

    Now if I just strictly play the spread I'm not hitting at a 70% clip... But you can pick money line games that are almost guaranteed to hit you just won't get a good return

     

    So I know it's not exact, but if you hit 70% on -350, you're losing money.  In your own example, you'd have to win 4-5 games to make up for 1 loss.  That's way more than 70%.

    What evidence are you referring to?

     

    Evidence is a poor choice of words.  You dismiss the report and says you see zero chance of it happening, yet you have no information to back that up except pure speculation.  I am not even claiming he did say it, but there was a report filed on one end very soon after the zoom call, it was followed up weekly for months to 2 separate individuals, and then it was promptly ignored.  People don't typically file complaints and put that much effort into it for it to be purely phony.

    I haven't followed this "news" at all. It didn't pass the initial smell test. Reading up on it in detail just now it appears that we're three degrees and three years away from the source. Some NFL media reporter claims Pegula said this to him back in 2020 (why would Pegula say anything this stupid to an NFL media reporter is the first question that comes to my mind). That reporter tells his story to a Zoom full of NFL employees. Jim Trotter was in that Zoom meeting and raised a complaint.

     

    So the chain of communication here is: Pegula -> NFL media reporter -> Trotter in a Zoom meeting -> Trotter's attorneys; all over the course of three years.

     

    It's laughable to take such an extended game of telephone even remotely seriously. I see exactly a zero percent chance that Pegula said to an NFL media reporter "let the black players go back to Africa" in any possible context. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. It's also incredibly irresponsible of Trotter's attorneys to include such inflammatory and baseless accusations in a footnote, but no doubt they knew what they were doing to get attention on the lawsuit.

     

    If I'm trying to be charitable to the initial NFL media reporter who quoted Pegula's alleged comment, perhaps Pegula did say something to the effect of "if these players hate their freedoms in America so much they should try living in 3rd world countries" which IMO is an irrational argument but it's a fairly common argument and not inherently racist in the slightest. I can see how such a statement could get twisted over the years to become a villainous caricature of itself, but that's about as much as I'd be willing to even entertain.

     

    So your evidence that their evidence is phony is that you simply have no idea, but that it sounds funny?  You even guessed at the end of your comment to try to make the supposed statement sound better.

     

    I have no idea what was said, but to say that it couldn't have been said is very naïve.  Also, if this was reported by Trotter pretty quickly after it happened, but then took 3 years to come out in the news, that isn't a story that floated around for 3 years.  Part of the reason Trotter filed his complaint is because he said his reports were ignored.  It claims he followed up weekly, so there SHOULD be a paper trail of sorts.  No audio as far as I can tell, but a timely report, follow ups, and it looks like zero investigation. That is part of Trotter's entire suite.  Reports of racism and discrimination were supposedly ignored.

    All Terry had to do was apologize and say he’ll do better to educate himself and all would be forgiven. Apparently that’s how this kind of stuff works.

    Not that I agree with anything Jackson said or posted, but employers are under an entirely different set of rules.  If one of my employees says something racist, I can fire him with cause but that's the extent of punishment.  If I say the same thing, I can get sued into oblivion.
