    Bucs WR DeSean Jackson has requested to be traded.

    Browns OC Todd Haley is reportedly on the "hot seat" and may not make it through the week.

    Pat Shurmur makes Ben McAdoo seem like Vince Lombardi.

    for the second straight week, the Giants had the ball with about 4 minutes left, needing more than a TD.
    the first time, they dicked around long enough to score a TD with 5 seconds left. today, it was 19 seconds left.

    um, granting you won't likely recover the onside kick anyway (they didn't and they didn't), but you might want to leave more than a few seconds just in case.

    even if one wants to blame Eli in the Falcons game, well, then someone didn't straighten him out before today.

    just comical to see a team in the red zone with under a minute left, needing two scores, and avoiding throwing to the end zone like it was against the law.


    all that said, is Eli a fantasy favorite? he racks up lots of meaningless passing yards

    Todd Gurley breaks free for a last minute garbage time TD.....and being the good sport he is, purposely stops short of the end zone. Rams win 29-27. All are happy.

    But wait!!! The Rams were favored by 7.5 and the O/U was 57! Watch out for the bridge jumpers!

    well, anyone who had the Rams giving more than a TD to Aaron Rodgers deserved their fate.

    Packers get the ball back with 2 minutes left, down 2 points. anyone want to bet against Rodgers?
    except the moron returner for the Packers took the ball out from deep in the end zone and then fumbled at the 20.

    Packers covered in that game for about 58 minutes. if Gurley scored there, would be the most undeserving cover of the year since - well, that dopey Giants garbage-time 8-point play last week with literally 5 seconds left in a game they lost anyway.

    there are lots of "bad beats" every year. for Packer backers, this one would have been ridiculous

    I just read that the coach told him to take a knee. He was on his own. It is not good to be named Ty Montgomery today.

    Itís getting uglier by the minute. Montgomery denies he was instructed to take a knee, and McCarthyís post game remarks appear to support that. But itís clear more than one Packer went to the press, and based on the latest from Montgomery, it appears he thinks one of them is Aaron.
