One might argue that he was the main reason for the situation that he was in. :)

Sanders was great. Seriously. Dude was a beast.

So Kelley has decided to play Kaepernick for the game this week. Kap says he will still sit out the anthem.

The game is in San Diego. Hmmmm. I wonder what kind of people live in San Diego. Military. This cannot possibly go well.

Steelers claimed Zach Mettenberger off the waiver wire. A Big Ben type arm, stature and competitor. Learning under Roethlisberger is going to give us some huge potential post-Ben. I fucking love this pick up. I know mikemarrs was high on him, even with Mariota in town.

Speaking of mikemarrs, sign up for the Pick-EM's!

I now know what it's like to be a Hillary supporter. I have such disgust for Kap. Like seriously. I was hoping a cop would come over and beat his ass. I hated he was going on the field. But man, every time he dropped back to pass and let the ball go, I wanted complete success. Team first. Weird vibe.

Cool, I asked AR in a thread but don't know if he saw it. The more the merrier. It would be great if you could get all your picks in on time this year. :lol: :lol: :wink:


Hah! You're right, though, my work schedule isn't as brutal this year as it was last. I worked 7 days a week; 12-16 hours last year so I was always mentally a week behind than what reality really was. It was hard to keep up with it so hopefully this season I can get on that pick-em routine. 8)

In my opinion you guys two favorite teams Bengals and Steelers have one of the fiercest rivalries in the league. Of course they are division rovals but these two teams seem to really turn it up a notch when they play each other. That last game there was a lot of bad blood that has come from that most recent matchup between the two.

From 1999-2011 the Tennessee Titans had seven winning seasons,six playoff appearances,three division titles,best record in the league three different seasons,two AFC championship game appearances and a Super Bowl appearance. The Titans last winning season was 2011.

Then from 2012 through 2015 the Titans endured a bad stretch due to bad drafting which included QB Jake Locker who was nowhere near as talented as Steve McNair or Vince Young.

Beginning in the 2015 draft the team started turning things around first by drafting QB Marcus Mariota then a year later in early 2016 they added GM Jon Robinson. Together Mariota & Robinson are changing the culture of the team. The Titans were lucky to land Marcus Mariota who set many records as a rookie last year and their new GM Jon Robinson who pulled off one of the biggest draft trades in history.

QB Marcus Mariota was the first QB in NFL history with 250+ pass yds, 100+ rush yds & 3 TD passes in a game,First rookie QB in NFL history to post a perfect 158.3 passer rating on Kickoff Weekend,Has 4 games with 3+ TD passes tied with Peyton Manning for most ever by rookie QB,Longest run in the NFL last year 87 yards as well as top five QB in red zone success.
Titans new GM Jon Robinson loves to wheel and deal he learned that from being under Belichick twelve years in New England.

Together Mariota & Robinson are changing the culture of the team. Robinson recently drafted rookie RB Derrick Henry as well as WR Tajae Sharpe and both led the NFL at their positions this preseason. The Titans revamped their offensive line with first round pick Jack Conklin. The team is done with the offense they carried 30 million in cap room over to 2017 where they will fix their defense in the next free agency as well as draft where they own two first round draft picks.

I guess spearing, launching, and hits to the head are allowed now...as well as granting TOs even if the field FG is already in the air. Stewart should have been ejected for launching, and should be suspended. That FG should have been 15 yards closer!

Herm Edwards: "The Rams just set the NFL offense back 50 years off of last nights game." Too true. That was the worst display of offense I've probably ever seen. If Jared Goff can't get on the field, he must be THAT bad. Jeff Fisher continues to be one of the most bad-average coach's in all of football that is still beloved.

The team is allowed a certain amount. Ben is allowed a lot more (off the field).

:D

Refs didn't reverse the fumble. It was called a fumble on the field and there just wasn't enough visual evidence for the refs to overturn it. There needs to be concrete evidence to overturn. The ball just couldn't be seen on replay when the knee hit. Got to go with the call on the field. Also, Ben had a couple crown of the helmets into his chest and there was a helmet to helmet shot the refs missed as well; 15 yarders to boot. Brown got mugged on multiple occasions. They clearly let them play, which means you got to man up elsewhere. Fact is, Cincy had piss poor red zone offense and was awful on 3rd downs conversions. Sorry, not sorry.

Eat a bag of dicks S2M :lol: AFC EAST is laughable. AFC North games are always tough sledding. Ben was throwing to undrafted TE's today and still managed 3 TD's against a stout Cincy D. Pats win the AFC East by default. YAWN.

James Harrison has been getting choked his whole career with no calls. Nothing new with refs not calling that shit. Get over it! :lol:

It didn't change the outcome. Cincy's dline is tough. We couldn't run up the gut on them much and they got to Ben many times and that's not counting the amount of times they hurried him. Point is, that didn't change the outcome. The Bengals were awful on 3rd down conversions and the Steelers defense tightened up in the red zone almost every Bengals trip inside the 20. That was basically the difference. Not a holding call here or there.

Vikings claim #2 spot. Not sure if even during Bret Favre 2009 season they got that high. Probably have to go back the Missing Rings year of 1998 15-1 season.
