    Jay Gruden let go...

    Translation: Snyder saw what happened with the Eagles game at the end of last season and their three home games this year where the visiting team's fans took over the stadium and turned them into defacto home games for them.
  2. I'm sure some UCLA alumni right about now would PAY the Redskins ALL of Chip's salary to take Chip off their hands!

    Antonio Brown cut by Pats

    This was being discussed on 98.7 ESPN in New York, and there is a widely held belief that a hit by Vontez Burrfect during a Bengals-Steelers game may have caused Brown's behavior.

    Andrew Luck decides to retire

    Probably is, but I can see two years from now with his body fully healed maybe his mind changes.

    Andrew Luck decides to retire

    Yes, but Luck is the kind of superstar where if he expressed he wanted to go elsewhere, after say 2020, the NFL could turn around and "strongly suggest" they do it under the threat of taking away draft picks and cutting their salary cap (or promising to give them additional cap room and a compensatory pick between Rounds 1 & 2) to let Luck do that. Calvin Johnson was never the star on the level Barry Sanders or Andrew Luck were.

    Andrew Luck decides to retire

    I suspect the NFL would in that scenario "strongly suggest" to Irsay he allow Luck to go elsewhere if after say 2020 Luck wants to come back, but not to the Colts. The NFL I think privately regrets not doing that when Barry Sanders retired because he no longer wanted to play for the Lions and not "strongly suggesting" to the Lions he be traded elsewhere so he could break records.

    Ex NY Jet Mark Gastineau Is Very Ill

    Really sad on Gastineau: Growing up in New York, I was a Jets and Giants fan (didn't become an Eagles fan until Cunningham was playing for them in 1986 in his second year and actually went to the 1981 Wild Card game against the Bills that would turn out to be the only time the Jets hosted a playoff game at Shea Stadium post-merger) and I remember how fierce he along with Marty Lyons, Abdul Salaam and Joe Klecko as "The New York Sack Exchange" were back then. The biggest moment for them was probably the December 20, 1981 regular season finale at Shea against the Packers (that also turned out to be Vin Scully's final regular season NFL broadcast) when the Jets ended a combined 30 years of futility for New York's football teams as that win put the Jets in the playoffs for the first time since 1969 AND the Giants into the playoffs for the first time since 1963 (back in the days when the NFL Championship was the only playoff game). Many older Jets and Giants fans remember that weekend because the day before, the Giants beat the Cowboys in Giants Stadium to set up where a Jets win got both teams in (or course, Eagles fans hated it the following Sunday when the Giants beat the Eagles in The Vet in what would turn out to be the last playoff game for the Eagles under D Vermeil). Other NFL players and the NFLPA need to come together on this one, though what about his family? Lisa Gastineau (Mark's first wife) and his daughters I believe have money as well (the Gastineau women were featured a number of years ago in an E! reality series as I remember).
  8. They should have tried to get Kirk Herbstreit to make the move to MNF.

    2019 NFL draft in Nashville - who's going?

    I believe that will be in Las Vegas. I think doing it in the infield at Churchill Downs in Louisville would be great as while Louisville is not an NFL city, it is within reasonable driving distance of a number of NFL cities and between the infield and the stands at CD you'd be able to easily hold 200,000 for each day of the draft.

    Giants fans... Talk about the Giants

    This was a big argument by some Tuesday on The Michael Kay Show on 98.7 ESPN in New York while they also went into a whole diatribe on the thought that there were other reasons for taking Daniel Jones at #6.

    Giants fans... Talk about the Giants

    The belief among some is The Mannings forced this pick on the Maras, who in turn forced Gettleman to take him no matter what, And the Broncos likely take him at 10 given they did move up in Round 2 to take Drew Lock while it's possible if not, the Bengals take Jones at 11.

    2019 NFL draft in Nashville - who's going?

    I get that, particularly with the bridal planners. The marathon is harder to reschedule because of the elite runners who are planning to run in that event, which is often part of a long-planned schedule for them that has them targeting specific events over the course of a year. That's one reason for instance when Sandy hit NYC the weekend the NYC marathon was to take place in 2012, it could not be rescheduled for a later date because of not only hotel reservations and so forth, for elite runners it could have had a ripple effect where some might have had to miss Boston the following April due to needing to have up to five months between marathons to be at optimal performance, leading to Boston Marathon officials suing New York marathon officials for running their race in say early December to make up for not running it when scheduled due to Sandy (and if you remember in that case, the Philly Marathon had to expand its field by 3,000 in 2012 to accommodate runners going in that event after the NYC event had to be scrapped).

    And another video on how idiotic some of these brides-to-be are for not looking at the calendar and seeing this weekend was the NFL Draft: https://twitter.com/KySportsRadio/status/1121759402044817409

    Giants fans are giving their draft an F so far.

    2019 NFL draft in Nashville - who's going?

    And a ton of soon-to-be-brides were PO'ed at the draft being there and not realizing it had been scheduled: https://twitter.com/Kathleenjjacob/status/1121546998342193153
