    Zane Gonzalez has had the worst two weeks for a kicker since Scott Norwood. No way he isn’t packing his bags by tomorrow. It actually might be in his own best interests if he found another way home!

    Wtf? Two-time Pro Bowler and 30-year-old Bills CB Vontae Davis quit the team and retired at halftime of their 31-20 loss to the Chargers on Sunday.

    If you're a Giants fan and hoped they would take a franchise QB at #2 instead of Saquon Barkley, like I did, your fears are becoming true, one turrble Eli game after the next. So now they have a world-class RB and WR and can't do anything with them. Ugh.

    this is the 2nd time in 20 years the Giants have hired an old man at GM who selfishly made an ego-driven choice to try to cement a legacy.

    Ernie Accorsi acquired Eli for the rights to a better QB, Philip Rivers, plus draft picks that were All-Pros Shawne Merriman and Nick Kaeding.

    Eli has been barely above a .500 QB in spite of having an incredible and durable OL in his early years and stars across the O and D spectrum, and has won a playoff game in only 2 of his 14 seasons.

    Gettleman comes in, and he, too, wants to win now. so he talks himself into the myth of Eli - who rode a magic carpet to 2 SB titles - and pays Beckham QB money at a position that correlates poorly to team Ws and then chooses a RB in the 2 hole.

    ironically, the plan could turn out to be so stupid that the Giants get into position to draft a franchise QB in 2019!

    If you drafted David Johnson you're in full panic mode now. Sam Bradford is killing this team -- he had just 90 yards passing yesterday -- and somehow, Josh Rosen didn't make it into the game.

    Huge downgrade to Johnson until further notice.

    I saw some of Bradford both weeks. he is worse than his stats show.

    TV showed Josh Rosen on the sideline late in the third quarter, yawning.

    I wonder if the Cardinals will go into 76ers mode. it's much easier to tank in the NFL, where being the worst guarantees you the first pick in every round. if your scouting staff is good, they get 1st-round value with pick 33, 2nd-round value at 65, and so on - all the way home.

    If you are a rebuilding team you have to tank. It just seems wrong, but that is how the rules dictate the game.
