    Autry Slapped with 13k Fine

    The NFL is a joke of an organization.

    Antonio Brown? Doubt it.

    Then he gets zero credit for those drafts too. I don't think it helps that he tried to hire McDaniels. That makes me think he doesn't care much about character. I have no issue with him sticking to his philosophy. I think the main issue with AB is cost and age. I'd like to have him, but it I'm in the "win now" camp after this past season. I think we're right there.

    I don't know what he thought either way, but he can't only get credit when it's positive.

    I really don't want to hear "character matters most" from the guy who drafted Tyreek Hill and tried to hire Joshls Mcdaniels either. I like Ballard, but he's full of crap when he says that.

    Aren't TY and AB childhood friends? As far as "lockeroom cancer" talks go, I'm willing to bet Roethlisberger (and possibly management) is the problem with the Steelers. It says a lot when your two stud playmakers sit out. The window to win in the NFL is typically very short. I think the team is pretty much there. I wouldn't be opposed to trading for AB, but that isn't Ballard's style.

    WR day 2 or even day 1

    I'll take a wild guess and say Roethlisberger (and the Steelers) is probably the turd here. He doesnt have a great reputation. It isn't a coincidence both of their best players were fed up.

    WR day 2 or even day 1

    What could Antonio Brown be worth? One higher pick? Three lower picks? I'd start there.
  8. Meh. We played awful. Sucked just about everywhere. I do not like our zone defense against good quarterbacks, but it is what it is. Offense just didn't show up. Forget about it. Sign/draft a playmaker. We look to be very good next season.

    Hooker OUT

    Uh oh....
  10. I'll be surprised if the Chiefs don't put up 30. I'll also be surprised if the Colts don't match. Although the Colts need one more good WR, I'll take the Colts in a shootout. Colts - 38 Chiefs - 34

    Concerns

    Mahomes picking apart our suspect zone defense. We've been lucky playing some pretty bad quarterbacks. I'm still not sold on the secondary. If we're able to get consistent pressure then I think we'll be okay.

    Texans TD

    I don't understand your point. It makes no difference who recovers once the ball is out. If the ball goes out of bounds on a fumble anywhere else on the field, the team that last possessed the ball retains possession. Fumbling out of bounds in the endzone should work the same way. Obviously you can't just award the touchdown, but the offense shouldn't lose the ball. I don't understand the reasoning as to why the rule is applied differently there. I've always though it was a bad rule.

    Texans TD

    It went out of bounds though. Anywhere else on the field and it's still the offense's ball. I don't understand the reasoning behind the rule.

    Conservative or Smart?

    It's entirely possible, but I doubt it. They just switched in the second half to minimize unnecessary risks and it worked beautifully with the defense we had.

    Conservative or Smart?

    I feel like I'm the only one that thought the second half was called masterfully by the Colts. If a couple dropped passes are caught, we probably score again. The Colts knew it was over after halftime even if the fans weren't sure.
