    I just wonder how many players are unprepared (financially) for a lockout.

    I read something somewhere that teams will also have an extra offensive lineman on gamedays, as an emergency lineman in case of injuries. So say Lane and Brandon both go down in the same game, the ''emergency" lineman can then be put into the game. Sort of like the old 'emergency QB'.

    As a fan, I don't mind 17 games. I don't want 14 playoff teams though.

    Post Your EMB Questions/Concerns Here

    I don't watch much (really any) regular TV. Most of what I watch is on Netflix, YouTube or my home Media Server. Recently, I've been watching some shows on Netflix that were originally on network TV (not the 3 main ones, CW). Specifically The Flash and Arrow. I was pretty surprised to hear some profanity, since these series are from regular TV. I have to say though, when I heard the D word (the same as Vermeil's first name), I did think of the EMBs profanity filter. We can't even type the first name of the first coach to take us to a Super Bowl but they can say it on regular TV now. At that time, I actually thought about making a thread to ask that the Mods at least allow us to post Vermeil's first name. If people get out of hand with it, they (the mods) can still warn or suspend.

    2020 Free Agent QBs

    Let's assume that Brady gone from NE and Philip Rivers us gone from L.A. (which has already been said to be so). Where's the likely landing spots for them? Could/would Frank Reich try to get one of them in Indy? Would one of those two make Indy a Super Bowl contender?

    Better to be pissed off than on...
  9. More flex scheduling could be on the way The first thing that they need to do is get rid of the current MNF crew and replace them with some more talented announcers. Bring Jaws back.

    Myles Garrett Assault Needs Its Own Thread

    The way I read it, and I could be reading it incorrectly, but by the time you get to #3 on that list, you've already proven that the statement is false. Here's the statement that he made to ESPN: So, that's the 'intentional' statement that would have to be proven to be false (or true). He didn't claim to have heard or thought that he heard it, he's claiming, as fact, that those things were said. He didn't say "I heard him call me the N-word". He said 'He called me the N-Word' and "he called me a 'stupid N-word'". So if it can be proven that the words were never spoken (and thus could not have been 'heard'), then #1 on the list is satisfied and you can move on to the other items on that list. If you can't prove the statements to be false, then the rest of the list doesn't matter. You stop at #1 on the list and can't move any further. That's how I read it (the list), anyway.

    That would be #1 then, not #3. He made the statement intentionally. Proving #1, that it was false, would be the harder one to prove. The only way to prove that he couldn't have heard it would be the audio and video. If there's audio/video proof that the statement was never made, then he couldn't have heard it, whether he thought he did or not.

    Not really. How could it be claimed or even believed that Garrett made the statement accidentally? It was 100% intentional. He's made the statement multiple times. So its impossible that it wasn't intentional.

    Flex Scheduling for MNF being considered

    I would hope that it would also be accompanied by de-Thursdaying the NFL.

    Sources: Antonio Brown not expected to play again this season

    Let's say that he doesn't have any medical/mental issues and just acts like an *** simply because he's an idiot. With that in mind, let's also say that he gets another chance with another team (which isn't guaranteed). How long would that last? Well, if he's 'learned his lesson', then it could be a situation where it lasts for however long his contract is and he can finish out his career 'normally'. But he hasn't displayed any ability to 'learn' a 'lesson'. So that's all just hypothetical. As things stand right now, I don't know that any team will ever really want to give him another chance.

    He's not suspended (unless something happened and I missed/forgot it), any NFL team could sign him today and he'd be on their roster like any other player. Of course there's a strong possibility that he'd be placed on the Commissioner's exempt list soon thereafter, but he doesn't need to be re-instated as of right now. Unless by 're-instated', you just mean 're-signed' by a team.

    At least not in a public way that we could see it.

    Flex Scheduling for MNF being considered

    I was actually just being sarcastic. But like I said, I really haven't watched any network TV other than what I mentioned, in a long time. I remember watching 60 Minutes as a kid in the 70's, every Sunday at my grandmothers house though.

    His current teammates might not buy into it, because they know him and those on the field didn't hear anything. But there can always be the grain of doubt for some that will think that just because they didn't hear it, doesn't mean it didn't happen. And even if 100% of his teammates believe him, what about his next team? What about potential endorsements that he wouldn't get because now that 'stink' of racism has been thrown on him. It's like the accusation of rape, in terms of public opinion, it doesn't matter if an accused man actually did it. The accusation alone puts it on the accused, even if he didn't do it. All of that aside though, if anyone believes the accusation (fan, player or disinterested third party), there's damage to his reputation and if the claim is 100% false, then he was illegally defamed. Of course, if he actually did say it, then he has no leg to stand on.

    In this case, I think just the accusation, if proven to be false, is enough to show 'some type of loss'. A white man being accused of calling a black man a 'N' in a profession where the majority of his 'co-workers' are black, is a really big deal. Both if it's true and maybe even more so if it's false. That kind of false accusation would destroy his ability to be the leader of a football team in the locker room. Here's what's needed in California (where the suit would be filed, apparently): There's more on that webpage, but I figured that was enough, but you can go there if you want to read more.

    Antonio Brown: "I haven’t done anything that bad”
  24. Because the league has protected them, in order to protect the league and the 'validity' or 'integrity' of those 4 (or 6?) Super Bowl 'wins'. To admit that they cheated and by cheating, won Super Bowls, it would have set off a firestorm.
