Chad Kelly, FTW!!!!!
I know this was in jest, but if we need Kelly to come off of IR that means our season is sunk.
Tyrone Braxton is today’s case.
The Cards would have lost a 6th round comp pick had they signed Blount. Advantage, Eagles.
The Eagles finally have a running back that weighs more than 210 pounds.
What happened, Nick?
Last I read, the Pats had Blount over a barrel.
I did not realize he had the option of signing elsewhere.
He still had that option until July 22.
I sprained an ankle just watching this.

He’s so quick!
I just finished the Son of Bum book. It was very interesting, lots of insight from such a positive guy. I love his coaching outlook, which is to let your players do the things they are best at. You can also tell Talib was a favorite of his as he has a few stories about him.
One of the few negative things he says in the whole book was this passage that I found hilarious:
In the second to last game of the season, the Broncos came to Houston. They had a big lead late in the game, but their coach, John Fox, still was throwing bombs because he was trying to get Peyton Manning a passing record. The final score was 37-13.
I went up to John Fox after the game. I told him he was a real chickenshit and I didn’t appreciate him running up the score.
He said, “Well, we didn’t. Peyton just needed to get that record.”
I said, “Well, you don’t need to do that to anybody. I just don’t think that was right.”
I agree with Wade: they should have just let Peyton naturally break the record the following week against the Raiders. Had they not pulled the starters after the first half they easily could have put up a 62-0 score on them.
At the time I really thought Wade came off bad in that situation. He seemed old and beaten down and he’s complaining about running up the score when his defense was completely helpless. Also, do we really think it was John Fox’s decision? Manning and Gase were running that team. In the end the most significant part of that game by far was Von’s injury.
More seriously, I just rewatched clips of this game and I’m not that sympathetic to Wade’s argument. It was actually a close game for 3 quarters: it was 16-13 into the beginning of the 4th quarter. By the time it was 30-13 and Denver got the ball, there was 5:16 left and Houston had all 3 timeouts. Unlikely, but not impossible, that the Texans could have come back.
I was at that game, so I’m glad you came to this opinion.
To your review of the game, a texans win did feel very possible until that last TD.
And one more eerie thing I noticed: this is the game that Von Miller tore his ACL in. He was chipped by a tight end that caused his right knee to twist in the wrong direction. The tackle that he was going to rush? Derek Newton, who of course had a much more catastrophic injury three years later trying to block Von Miller.
Oh wow, that is crazy.
Seems like Newton was scared of Von (and rightfully so), but playing more stiff could have been part of the reason why he was injured.
Peyton (sorta) teased Wade for this during the Broncos roast of him. Apparently he is still sensitive.
Gisele Bundchen confirming the NFL’s concussion protocol is largely about PR.
Gisele didn’t realize that she was spilling the beans. Brady was never reported as having a concussion. Did Brady successfully hide it or did the Cheatriots?
CONCUSSIONGATE!!!!!! BAN THE PATRIOTS FOR ONE YEAR!!!
I’m sure she’s well aware of the protocol, which makes it interesting that she spoke so freely.
He did say she wants him to retire.
Dom Cosentino shared his observations.
Given Bill Belichick’s terrible history of handling concussions, I don’t think the Patriots deserve the benefit of the doubt.
So Caleb Brantley was cleared. https://twitter.com/RapSheet/status/864908458293907456
That defensive line of Ogbah, Brantley, Shelton and Garrett could be pretty formidable. They also have a top-notch offensive line. They’ll be winning in the trenches a fair bit. Can they win anywhere else?
Kudos to the State Attorney Office for the very clear explanation. Including the part where they are being more vocal on it because of the “notoriety”.
Mike Klis: Walking, talking conflict of interest.
A couple funny replies on there.
It’s that select merchandise caveat that gets you. I’m still good on Julius Thomas jerseys.
MDS at PFT noted that Klis buried a lede in opining that Jamaal Charles is a 50/50 chance to make the roster:
Also, I think the reason why the Sports Authority signs are still up is because the Broncos don’t want people to get attached to a temporary non-corporate name before they secure the new corporate name.
“But it was a shame the “Home of the World Champions” carried the name of a defunct company.”
Gimme a break. I prefer stadiums that aren’t associated with another company that has nothing to do with the team. Give me back Mile High and I’ll be happy. It wasn’t a shame at all.
