DON'T TELL ME TO CALM DOWN!

But yeah, it's the off-season, I'm bored, and it's fun to poke at the Chiefs being that they're one of the top teams in football. I'd do the same for Tampa, but literally nothing changed from last season to this season with everyone coming back.

If it makes you feel better you can make fun of the Giants. It's not hard.

Vid, I want you to know that I fully support you in anything about Mahomes. I hope he and Herbert just absolutely own the rest of the West for however long it takes us to fire Elway.

Mahomes is one of the only things consistently worth watching in a legitimately bland NFL.

Agreed, which is why I don't ever knock him and honestly wish they'd get a couple more pieces for him instead of just saying fuck it, he's good enough to do without extra pieces. I love watching him play and he seems like a pretty good dude. (My favorite is the mic'd up session when his voice cracks pumping up the team and he's like, "oh shit" but keeps going).

It's 100% not happening. It's vastly more likely that we're calling the Bears every day about all 6'6" of Nick Foles.

Also, holy fuck, Dan McGwire was 6'8"? That's absurd for a qb.

He was working out on his own, so the Broncos are not obligated to pay him.
This seems not cool in light of the current climate, especially if he was working out safely.

If only the NFLPA wasn't a joke.

Also, ffs, he's had access to the vaccine for weeks, even assuming the team didn't have a way to the front of the line earlier. Get the damn shot and then read your massive contract and abide by it. There are absolutely no excuses at this point for a dude with no personal health concerns.

And yet he’s always brought back and has some type of suspension at the beginning of seasons lol. But really the Raiders secondary will be interesting to watch this season.

DB/LB: Johnathan Abram, Divine Deablo
CB: Trayvon Mullen, Rasul Douglas, Isaiah Johnson, Nate Hobbs
SS: Karl Joseph, Tyree Gillespie
FS: Trevon Moehrig, Dallin Leavitt
CB: Casey Hayward, Damon Arnette, Nevin Lawson, Amik Robertson, Keisean Nixon

The NFLPA were the ones encouraging these guys to not work out at the teams facilities lol. They have no fucking clue what they’re doing.

I don't understand how that union is such a complete joke. It's incredible how terrible they are at advocating for the players in any meaningful way.

To be fair, the NFL has always been pretty heavily owner driven compared to the NBA & MLB.

He's going to the Broncos for Drew Lock, 2 1sts, and something more (not too much more but more)

Not gonna lie, Packers hands a smidge tied. Rodgers has 'em by the balls. Not sure how much you expect to get. Superstars never get a return of equivalent value.

I mean, the Raiders only got 2 1sts, a 6th and a 3rd for Mack AND gave up a 2nd & 7th

I feel like the Packers think they're in command of the situation since he would have to pay back like $11 million in bonuses and would forfeit like $30 million more. And for most players, they'd be right.

But he'e salty and spiteful. He's probably done well with his other money, and whatever he wants to do after football is likely to pay him eight figures annually. He could just quit and really leave the team hanging.
