    Ezekiel Elliott Suspended for 6 games

    Its strange that this is coming from Carter but it wouldn't surprise me that the league is leaking this info to prepare Dallas fans for the incoming blow.

    Ryan Tannenhill goes down with what looks like ACL

    Still sounds like he may need season ending surgery. Just the way he pulls up while running without being touched screams its not good. This is the worst time of year. So many players going down before the season starts.

    Reuben Foster

    The more I heard about him the more red flags I heard about. I got the impression from some that he had these great highlight reel hits that would get fans excited but when it came down to Xs and Os coaches didn't like him as much. After the initial hype I ended up feeling there was no way he was worth #14 if he was a MLB that didn't call the defense and had all the off the field/medical flags. I'm no expert and I've been known to be wrong but I'm happy with the way things turned out.

    OFFICIAL: Nick Foles 2017 option not picked up by Chiefs

    Get over it already. Is Foles awesome? No. Is he as terrible as some want to make him out to be? Probably not. Sure Foles had some luck to have that amazing year. News flash same is true of every player who has had record setting years. At some point you face bad competition and rack up some stats. My thing with Foles is could he have actually improved and become a really good QB if he had had a competent coach. He definitely had issues he needed to work on. The question was were they too ingrained for him to break or could he fix them and take the next step and become a franchise QB. He didn't take the next step. Now was that his fault or Chip's? Don't quote me stats about Chip's offense being top of the league year two. I watched that offense and it was hard to watch. It wasn't good. With Chip you have to be careful because the sheer number of snaps blow the stats out of whack. It got stupidly simplistic fast. And for F's sake don't sit there and make fun of someone's screen name then get upset someone made fun of yours.

    OFFICIAL: Nick Foles 2017 option not picked up by Chiefs

    Again: more snaps = better stats NOT better play. I don't believe Sanchez actually played any better for Kelly. Hismstats just looked better because the ball was in his hands more per game.

    OFFICIAL: Nick Foles 2017 option not picked up by Chiefs

    You call that decent play? Yeah he had a statistical up tick but a lot of that probably had to do more with the sheer volume of snaps than with anything resembling actual QB play. The more I think back the more Kelly benefited year 1 from having McCoy and Jackson at skill positions, the sheer number of plays he ran increasing the stats, and teams briefly not knowing what they were dealing with. Once he started dumping talent and teams realized he was a one trick wonder he was done.

    Who Most Likely to End a Playoffs Drought

    News of Rex's job being on the line came a week before and the team responded with their worst performance of the year. Beating the Browns by 20 points doesn't mean anything especially at this point. Its abundantly clear that Rex has lost the team and the fact that the defense has been worse under his leadership is plenty of justification to fire him. Firing him will not be a mistake hiring him in the first place was. The man is a joke. As for the he could deliver back to back winning seasons. He 1 promised play offs not winning seasons and last year he provided an 8-8 season which was a step back from 9-7 which was carried by Shwartz's defense. Last year they went 8-8 thanks to the offense being good and the defense terrible. He also fired his oc at the begining of this season. You start scapegoating your subordinates you a** is on the line soon.

    Disgruntled Nick Foles skips OTAs (ORIG POST: 6/1/2016)

    I haven't seen this but it wouldn't surprise me. It was one of my first thoughts when I saw this story earlier. It was portrayed like he was holding out but from the what Fisher was saying it sounded more like it was either the team's or a mutual decision because they didn't want him/want to pay him so instead of risking injury and having to pay him the whole year they asked him to stay away.

    Johnny Manziel

    It was kind of funny at first just how big of an egotistical dope he was being after all the hype. It was like "I'm Johnny Football. I'm great. I don't need to put in the work. I can go party and act like an idiot no matter what anyone else says." Watching him fall on his face in the NFL largely because of his own ego was kind of funny. Its quickly become really sad and depressing though. He's no longer throwing his career away he's very possibly throwing his life away and doesn't seem to care. I don't know if I necessarily feel bad for him in particular but I definitely feel bad for those wno care about him and can't get through to him. Multiple people have tried to get through to him but he doesn't want to hear it. I'm betting his dad had tried, two agents tried, and apparently some friends tried an intervention and he blew up on them. Unless his attitude changes this seems like its going to end tragically.

    Rolling R-word's (Trademark Pending) updates..

    Part of it is for sure the disfunction in Washington but I think the other big problem is his ego. It sounds like he was worshipped at college and even the coaches weren't hard on him. Maybe a better run organization could have set him straight but having the owner taking his side over his coaches made things worse. That line as a whole looked bad. Yeah the back up LG was bad but I saw immediate pressure from all over the place and yeah in some cases he held onto the ball too long and took unnecessary hits but I still don't think that line looked good at all.

    OK is this like the greatest troll job in history? He can't be serious can he? Nothing is ever Carr's fault. He'll be fine.

    So where is Carr's biggest fan? Couldn't post fast enough the one week he finally wins a game but the week he gets shut out....he checks out an hour into the game.

    So now Sapp is officially smarter than the Racists and their fans. He was just on NFLN and just said the shot on Foles was a dirty hit. He even said it was cowardly.

    Love it. Other than RGMe's college coach Gruden was the candidate I most hoped they'd hire.

    There's an NFL team out there that needs to figure out if that was their scout that provided that evaluation and fire him immediately.

    With it going to cost Snyder 7 mil to fire Shanahan and I think I saw 13 mil to fire the entire coaching staff this year and him not wanting to pay that amount I can see this thing getting even uglier.

    Rolling R-word's (Trademark Pending) updates..

    Seeing as how he just started being a R-words fan around the time Shanny showed up he has no knowledge of football or that team before that and its so obvious.

    Chances of the R-words and/or Cowboys following the Eagles example and hiring a college coach not realizing that Chip is unique?

    Rolling R-word's (Trademark Pending) updates..

    That's what the latest reports/rumors coming out say. Snyder wanted RG3 and was willing to do whatever it took to get him (and did). Shanny wanted to stay put because he liked Tannehill and Cousins as a mid-round prospect. I hate to say it because I'm no fan of Shanahan but they'd probably be in a much better position if they followed his plan. This move is more of a finger to Snyder and I think Shanny wants to show him what they could have done which will probably piss of Snyder even more because he won't like being shown up. I also now have to question what exactly went down between Shanny and the Raiders back in the day. All I know is he was fired and they withheld his pay afterwards and he stayed pissed at them and liked beating up on them when he coached the Broncos. I wonder if he played the same kind of games with Davis to get himself fired and get paid and Davis said F you I know what your game is.

    That was such a lost season it wasn't even funny.

    You should never let the players have a say in who is coaching them IMO. It completely undermines the coaches authority but they've basically have already declared that Bob is running the team especially if they fire Shanny so why not let him pick the next coach too.

    I think Shanny's a BS artist though if it came down to who I trusted more him or their owner I'd reluctantly believe Shanny.

    I missed that one. He is like 12 though right? That team is falling a part. I just caught part of Shanny's press conference and he looks like a dead man walking and he knows it. He didn't even deny the report. He said now is not the time to talk about what happened last off season etc...
