I thought that... Finally I put up a decent score against him and everyone would have taken him.

Still... Didn't expect the patriots to go down to Miami.

Sucks to be Carson Wentz... On his way to a possible Superbowl/MVP season.

Also trying not to get carried away by the various op-eds which have Rodgers coming back next week and leading the Packers into the playoffs and beyond... #gopackgo.... :hyper:

Are the Browns going to lose all their games too?

Though, I still think they really don't play anywhere near enough games.

I think they might... given the lead they threw away at the weekend. How often does a 0-16 season come up?

Right, Gronk might be back this week, Eth, but you're going down.

Or not, probably.

I know. Though still, 10 points more this week than he's had all season. TEN POINTS MORE.

Would practically have won on his own, thanks to my once again terrible benching decisions.

Just to derail slightly...

I really like kaepernik and the way he has carried himself throughout the last couple of years... I also think that whether you agree with the protests or not anyone halfway rational can see that his treatment has been unfair...

That all said... Why would anyone with half a brain not keep cam Newton?

Perhaps you should have drafted him ;)

You can still win it though. Not over till Bell goes over for his 5th TD.

Obligatory, end-of-season, Cowboys rant...
Hapless for 22 consecutive seasons. Allowing Seattle 136 yards of total offense, while they won with 142 penalty yards, is downright laughable.

Jerry Jones is a whiz at making money, but a total failure as a GM of the once-relevant Dallas Cowboys.

Merry Christmas.
