    I think he is will be a class of 2019 QB. He is only a Junior.

    Damn that sucks. Hopefully Wentz plays more with in the pocket moving forward. Kind of ironic that it's Nick Foles to the rescue for a team that kicked him to the curb after one of the best seasons in NFL history in 2013.

    After the hit, Wentz showed no signs of being injured and actually remained in the game for an additional 4 plays that included a TD pass (breaking the all-time Eagles record). He seems like a honorable, highly likeable, all-American white man in his personal life (he's still with his high school girlfriend) and probably the best overall football player in the NFL this season. Best of luck to him for a full recovery and return to greatness.

    Looks like the Lions have decided it's time for Zach Zenner to go to medical school after this season; the rest of the league will likely follow suit in not wanting him. Because in a year of unending bad news for the NFL, the last thing the league wants is a feel-good story of a potentially great White running back and model citizen who wants to become a doctor after his playing days are over. Can't have any White heroes in Amerika 2.0 now can we? Gotta keep dysfunctional blacks and their relentless "oppression" at the center of the (fake news) media narrative at all times.

    Speaking Sunday, Lions coach Jim Caldwell declined to call Ameer Abdullah his starting running back. Evidently cleared from his neck injury, Abdullah was inactive for Sunday's win over the Bucs. Caldwell was fuzzy on Abdullah's status going forward. It's a deserved benching, though Abdullah is certainly one of the Lions' 46 best players. He should return to a rotation with Theo Riddick, Tion Green and perhaps Zach Zenner. Abdullah's re-draft value is shot.

    I hope Zenner does leave after this year. He has bigger and better things to move on to. His treatment by the Lions is downright BS. Theo Riddick, Dwayne Washington and now Tion Green have all gotten much better treatment than Zenner.

    An article by some clown named Cody Benjamin on CBS Sports today with 5 suggestions for whom the Eagles should sign as backup quarterback. His top 3: Colin Kaepernick, RGIII, and Josh Johnson...(Josh Johnson hasn’t thrown an NFL pass since 2011.). Hilarious

    Why not add Akili Smith, Byron Leftwing, and JaMarcus Russell to that list? They'd fit in well.

    I seem to recall Brady Quinn being an emergency week or two veteran minimum signing favorite a few years back. I also recall Rex Grossman being offered a Christmas bonus of the veteran minimum cheque and he turned it down. Quinn even stated recently that he was still open to do this if a team wanted him.

    PS. Supposedly Johnson is a "great" scout team quarterback(whatever that means). Usually teams try and sign guys that were in camp with them earlier in the year or have long resumes as career journeyman/back ups ie Steve Deberg who came out of retirement in his mid 40's to be a clip board holder.

    The Patriots just made one of their stupid signings - they signed WR Kenny Britt to a two year deal.

    49ers signed Max McCaffery

    Kenny Britt is a team cancer with a pernennially horrible attitude. He has gotten into several fights with his own teammates. What would possess them to sign such a miscreant?

    RG3 popped up on the NFL channel this morning for a little chat. Seems like an okay guy with a pdretty good head on his shoulders but one thing struck me. When they asked him about a possible return to the NFL he started talking about how it would be the right situation for him to be interested, with this condition and that condition and so on. An opportunity tailored to his liking for him to be comfortable with coming back. And therein, I think, was one of the things that hindered him as an NFL QB. Not tough minded enough. Not ready to just get in there and mix with it no matter what.

    I think you can have some prima donna to lead a team in the NFL but you better have leather for skin along with it. I'll venture even the bros sensed that about him which is one of the reasons he is in the studio and not on the practice field today.

    As far as I can find out, the Seahawks players are not even going to be fined for their behavior against Jacksonville. And the media appears to be burying the incident.

    I find this just funny - Marvin Lewis who was gifted that Bengals job for 15 years is going to be moving on after totally underachieving with the Bengals. He is 0-7 in the playoffs and his teams are consistently undisciplined and full of idiots. Hopefully Lewis, John Fox and Pagano are all canned this year.

    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Marvin Lewis is planning to leave the Bengals after this season to pursue other opportunities.

    Lewis was already in lame-duck status, so this is a mutual parting. The Bengals have been trending toward moving on since owner Mike Brown didn't extend Lewis going into 2017. Lewis has a .525 winning-percentage (123-11) but is winless in the playoffs and looking at consecutive losing seasons. Lewis could draw offseason interest as a retread.

    Lewis will probably be signed by another NFL team.

    Looks like Jerry Richardson patted a girl's butt and used a "racial slur" in a private conversation, the two most egregious crimes a White man can commit in Communist Amerika.

    Sports Illustrated reports Panthers owner Jerry Richardson has made "confidential payouts" for sexual harassment and "use of a racial slur." Per reporters L. Jon Wertheim and Viv Bernstein, Richardson has paid out "at least four significant settlements" in exchange for "what amounted to a vow of silence." In addition to the sexual misconduct, Richardson is accused of "(directing) a racial slur at an African-American scout for the Panthers." They are extremely serious charges. The NFL announced Sunday morning it was taking over the Panthers' investigation of its owner.

    And it looks like this simple faux pax will cost him the team. Word is he is selling at year end

    Be interesting to see what the sale price ends up being considering they aren’t in a huge market, recent protests, drop in viewership etc

    Even the browns sold for a cool billion a few years ago

    He has a Mexican head coach and black quarterback for the past six years, but he used a racial slur. Hopefully the new owner will get a White coach and quarterback but keep his mouth shut.

    Richardson sounds like another rich coward.
