    Michaels hasn't retired or been replaced. He likely has some clauses in his contract giving him a few games off, such as a holiday weekend game like this one.

    Ok, thanks. That makes sense.

    I think Rabbi Al doesn't fly to the East Coast anymore. He's close to 80 years old now and might not be physically up to traveling at this point of his life. I notice a bunch of announcers in his age range have retired like Marv Albert did after the end of the NBA season.

    Yeah, he's still close to the top of his game so he can pretty much name his terms when it comes to negotiating contracts.

    Yeah Jeremiah Trotter was a great linebacker and had his head in his shoulders. I recall reading his dad was a lumberjack and raised his son to respect hard work. I also remember smiling broadly when learning TO got laid out by Trotter.

    Edit: I think it was Hugh Douglas who knocked out TO and it was Trotter who knocked out LaVar Arrington cold... I remember all the draft “experts” saying LaVar was the next Lawrence Taylor but in reality Brian Urlacher was far and away a better prospect that year and became a Hall of Famer. Arrington was a bit of a bust; ok player nothing special.

    Sadly, the end of the relatively White friendly Mike Zimmer era in Minnesota is nigh

    You're probably correct. And I don't know how many years Kirk Cousins has left on his contract but I could see him retiring after this season as well with all the coronapocalypse crap going on. Some of these guys at the end of their careers may just say to hell with all this nonsense.

    Type "Mike Zimmer" into Google and you'll see Twitter losing its collective mind because Zimmer isn't keen on starting Kellen Mond next week. Zimmer gave a sarcastic response when a reporter asked about Mond for week 18 and that's apparently unacceptable to Twitter.

    There have been so many incidents of these fist fights they tend to run together, but the one element is a diva Black who does one thing too much and somebody clocks them...

    Kirk Cousins is only 31 and one of the top ten quarterbacks in the league. He will probably not retire anytime soon.

    Cousins was born August 19, 1988, which makes him 33. He should still have several years of good football left.

    After seeing his comments about Mond I hope Zimmer is back next year!

    It sounds like this is Ben's swan song. I've been a fan of his since I initially learned about him during the 2003 season - 2004 being the first NFL draft I followed.

    Great point LF. He may just be Alpha enough to pull it off. Ya got to luv old guy though. Would be a shame for the whole league if he isnt head coach. Dwf’s and cuck media hate him for all of the above and video below.

    TJ Watt with 2 sacks already at halftime. He jumps back ahead of Robert Quinn (18 sacks) now with 19.5 and has rekindled his shot at the all time record.

    I HATE diva athletes, and let’s be honest it is usually black WR or black DBs who are the divas. I enjoy hearing about some linebacker or offensive lineman cleaning their clocks.

    Looks like TJ already has 3 sacks today with nearly a quarter of the game left.

    and to think BSPN had an article/blurb about how Garret on the Browns and Watt were neck and neck for the Defensive Player of the Year award. Watt is clearly head and shoulders the better player (he is better and yet he has missed three games and part of another if I recall).

    Ha, media desperately trying to make a story out of this... every news outlet has a piece about it, even Fox News and CNN.. and if it were a white quarterback in question, nobody would care...

    Unreal TJ Watt with his 4th sack of the night! He absolutely leveled Baker on Sack number 4.

    Tuszka and Mondeaux getting in on the action as well.

    If Watt gets the sack record next week he should thank Cleveland's sumo tackle who hasn't come close to containing him. And also the Cleveland coaching staff for making no adjustments during the game.

    Cleveland bookend sumo tackles getting abused by Watt and co. If it’s not a sack, it’s a penalty...
    is it a stretch to say diversity has ruined the offensive tackle position?
    Gotta hand it to Baker, the guy is tough...

    6 sacks! We can call this a Whitelash!

    And after Mayfield’s despicable support for a black murderer, perhaps the scoundrel is getting a small taste of karma….
