Patriots will pick him up for a bag of wire nuts and a half empty bottle of water that was left out in 95 degree weather.

Mods can merge my thread into this one. 
 

I swear though, if he goes to the Patriots or Chiefs, I’m done. 

It’s probably between Chiefs Patriots Eagles and maybe Seattle.. I might be missing a team

If the pats trade for him, do we riot ? 

I don’t see BB being interested in him. The Pats D is ranked #1 right now and the secondary is a strength.. now if it was a pass rusher..

I don’t think they need him to be honest. The Pats probably hoist a few more Lombardi’s in the coming years. 

 

76 points scored in two games and only 3 given up. SMH

So is this the direction of NFL players now?  You don't like the team you're on, so you act like a * in order to get traded/cut.

It's essentially heading towards the NBA in some aspects.

HEY YOU! 

 

Want a job where you can act like a total entitled crybaby punk * and demand that your employer find you another job, transfer you, and you STILL get monetarily compensated for your horrible behavior!? 

 

THE NFL WANTS YOU!

Thats why teams need to just start benching these guys.  NFL is already having issues with ratings, it goes the route of the NBA, it'll just make matters that much worse.

23. Jaguars (24): They lose their new leader one week, and their best player demands to be traded the next. Didn't take long for wheels to come off here.

they must have been watching the nba, where star players can not only "request" a trade, but also name the only team they will go to

You’ve always been able to do that. The difference now is that you seemingly can do that and land on the best team lol!

 

Guy’s a nutbag overshadowed only by AB, TO etc. All Jimbo Fisher coached players are.

Monday he missed practice with the 'Flu, Tuesday 'stiff' back, Thursday  left town for birth of 2nd child.  He will be back with team 'when he's ready'.  He is considered 'questionable for Denver.

I wished owners had enough courage to just say enough is enough. Kick this kid to the curb and let him play madden 2019 with AB. Mybe AB, Ramsey and Kapernick can all play together and start up their own league. Let’s call it the quitters or the IBTU (I’m bigger than you) league. Money always corrupts and now it’s ruining the league. I wished I lived in the era to have seen the Bradshaw, Jim Brown, Walter Peyton, Unitas, Starr, Butkus, mean Joe Greene, Deacon Jones, Muñoz etc... these guys would be supers stars today if they were here in their prime. I would enjoy seeing them just play the game, not the money. 
 

give them decent salaries and pay your stars more but not a zillion dollars. Put in contracts they are subject to large % of pay for actions such as the *s of today are causing. You will have lifetime medical for 3+ years service and limited insurance for those who are 1-3 of service. Pensions are given per year of service like any other professions. Work 1 and you get little, work 10 and your pension was based on your level time served. You demand a trade, you get sent to the other available leagues because put in place is any player who can’t conform to the team and/or league rules you initially signed into, you must sit out for 3 seasons in the NFL. This solves these jerks trying to play for their desired team and becoming a powerhouse team by default. 
 

something needs changed in the next agreement to prevent these jackwads from trying to hijack their team

All ^^^ true! 

When qualified, a player with four (4) or more years of NFL experience can earn his total minimum salary, but have a cap figure that reflects two years of experience – or in 2019, $645,000.  The contract must be for only one year, and must not contain combined bonus money (signing, roster, workout) that exceeds $90,000.

 

Practice squad players in 2019 can earn a minimum of $8,000 per week during the regular season and postseason,  $128,000 if he is there for 16 weeks.

 

 

I remember when John Unitas was the first player in the NFL to get $100,000 a year.    The greatest Quarterback OF ALL-TIME, at that moment in time, made less than a Practice squad player of today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  :censored:

    • I'm sorry,  I've said this before,  but I see you added more material here and you've completed misunderstood this.   First,  there are no writers for the on-air talent.   None.   The talent writes what they want to say.   I even contacted a friend who works at ESPN for the last 30 years.   He says all on-air talent writes what they say -- period.   And thre is no company position on various issues.   So, for example, on al the debate shows you talked about,  the hosts say what they want.   No writer writes what to say for them.      Here's what your article is talking about.   The company is clearly on the liberal side.   They've hired in the past a bunch of Conservatives who wanted to say whatever they wanted to say.  Mostly about politics in the real world.   The name Curt Schilling might be familiar.   He had been warned repeatedly about talking about real world politics that have nothing to do with sports.   He kept doing it and basically dared the company to do something.   He thought they wouldn't.   They did and eventually he was let go.      ESPN is trying to stay away as best as they can from real world politics.   If oyu want to point to Conservative political views,  fine, you'll get no argument from me.   SPOILER ALERT:  That's going to take a huge hit on Wednesday, 5/27,  in the aftermath of the dead black man in Minneapolis and the black man in New York who a white woman called the politce on and lied about what he was doing (caught lying on tape), as well as the jogger in Georgia who was shot and killed months ago and the video has now surfaced.  Outraged professional athletes are now loudly speaking out.    That means ESPN is going to talk about the real world even thought most of their viewers may not like it.   But you have to cover what the athletes are doing and saying.   Many people here (most?) think ESPN doesn't like Jim Irsay and the Colts.   Do certain anchors, hosts, reporters have issues with us?    Maybe,  possibly.    But there is no corporate position on Irsay or the Colts.  All on-air talent is free to say whatever they want to say.   No one tells on-air talent what to say when it comes to day-to-day sports.   To be clear,  ESPN doesn't want anyone trashing the sports they cover or hurting the professinal relationships.   If you're going to attack the commissiner of a sport,  then you had better have more than just an opionion.   You better have some substance to back it up.    Former NBA Commish David Stern was legendary for calling up the head of ESPN and SCREAMING about things he heard said about the NBA on ESPN that he didn't like.     You wrote that there's plenty of things on the internet to support your view.   Please feel free to take another crack at it,  because the first article doesn't support your position.    It's taking about something different,  how ESPN doesn't want the real world of politics infringing on the day to day coverage of sports.   Some things can't be stopped.   More women in pro sports.   Gays in sports.   How athletes react to real world injustice.    But if Curt Schilling wants to spew hate about Muslims, which he did,  or talk about transgender bathroom laws,  that's going to lead to the unemployment line, which it did. What do those issues have to do with sports?   Last thought:   I try as often as I can to explain the world of the media to people here.   30 years in the business so I should be able to to.   Frankly,  I take no pleasure in strongly opposing your views here.   In fact, no one is more surprised than me.   Because, quite honestly,  I think you've had an incredibly long stretch of really top notch posts for many months here.    I think you've seriously rasied your game and I find myself in agreement with many of your views.    And if I haven't given you a ton of likes then shame on me.   I try to reward good posting.  I find your posts smart and well reasoned.   I enjoy reading your views.    And then we hit this thread.   And I did a double-take when I saw who posted about the media.  So please take this as the compliment that it is intended.   I'm a fan of yours.   Just not here on this particular subject.   If you have other comments, or questions,  I'm happy to continue this discussion....   my apologies for the length of ths post.   Just so much to respond to.   NCF
    • He is allowed his opinion just like the rest of us. Based on where we are, I think he will be way off the mark.    But this will be a very strange season if it happens, so who knows.    We have all been watching this stupid league for many years and we should know not to take anything for granted.   Other team improve as well, you know.   I'm hoping for top 10 though.
    • I agree. Just the maturity of all the Rookies and second year players should make a significant difference. With a couple of exceptions, the Starting D was pretty darn young by the end of the season. 
    • Silly nonsense.   Very disappointing.   USA Today used to be really good.   Even if you knew nothing about the Colts, you could know this.    We spent 7 of 10 2019 draft picks on defense.   It's not unreasaonble to expect most if not all of them to be better.   The question is how much?   But Rock and Okereke and Willis are starters.   Benagu, Tell, should be key reserves.   Speed and Green to ST's.     So, the defense SHOULD be better on that alone.   And I'm almost positive I read something this off-season about a trade for Buckner, and some free agent signing's including Rhodes.   Plus the return of a healthy Turay.   That's a lot of important faces on that side of the ball.   You don't need to be a rocket scientist to be able to predict we should be a better defense.  The only question is.....    now much better?  
    • Barring something completely unexpected,   Blackmon is going to be mostly a non-factor, even if he somehow manages to get on the field.    First, he won't have played for roughly 9-10 months.  Second,  because of injury,  no rookie camps in the spring.    No summer camp, pre-season camp and missing the first part of the season.    So, he'll have a few weeks of practice and you expect him to be a factor right away?    It's among the longest of long shots.   Could it happen?   Long shot.   A one percent chance, maybe two.   Odds are if he plays, he'll be OK but nothing special.    The year to expect Blackmon to show something is 2021.   His rehab and practice time should be back to normal.   Sorry.
