NFL in London is a glorified Air BnB vacation.

They're just prepping British fans for what watching a London expansion franchise would look like.

I do wonder if this whole thing about St. Louis getting an expansion to get rid of the Rams lawsuit opens the door for that.

Seahawks. Woof.

It's been a historically long time since the NFL has expanded.

I expect, once the dam breaks, we will fairly quickly expand from 32 to 36 teams, and realign back to 6 divisions of 6 teams each.

Los Angeles was always the roadblock that had to be taken care of first. That's done now.

47 net. Ouch.

So . . . how 'bout them Jets QB draft picks?

Don't forget they spent a 2nd round pick on this guy:

I bet Pittsburgh wishes the tuck rule were still around right now. They were the only team who voted against its removal.

(New England abstained from the vote. WFT did too, probably because Allen and Snyder were too busy doing sh*tbag things to participate in votes at the owners meetings)

Jamal Adams drops the INT that hits him in the face.

That's what you trade two 1sts and a 3rd for.

WTF it this sloppy sh*t?

Ugh.

LOL. Ouch.

Holding the ball like a loaf of bread.

Just Geno Things.

It brings me joy that even on their bye week we have a reason to laugh at the Jets.

In other news, Browns lost a winnable game against an opponent that they were better than for the second week in a row. It’s like my childhood all over again. We even have an overrated QB that people irrationally love!

Can someone explain to me how in the hell JOK fell so far in the draft? Dude is on point.

Before I answer, a reminder that JOK was near the very top of my list of who I wanted the Jags to spend the first pick of round 2 pick on (and had I realized what shape Jenkins’ back was in, JOK would have been 1st). I was fully on board with JOK as a difference making talent.

But to answer the question: because the last highly drafted linebacker with a somewhat similar athletic profile was Patrick Queen.

Well, about that:

Linebacker
It was a rough day for Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, who missed a tackle on 33% of his attempts. He was also responsible for allowing a touchdown in coverage. He did create three defensive stops, but the rookie linebacker is set to earn the worst defensive grade of his season.

Guess I cursed him. (From here.)

Secondary decided not to show up outside of Denzel Ward who also had a couple interference penalties, though he was going against one of the top WRs in the league, so those are forgettable.

Kyler is on point this year, so don't feel too bad. The Browns didn't look like a particularly good team this week and thursday should provide an even more interesting banged up offense as now Kareem Hunt is also likely out.

Oh no, he really is Patrick Queen.

So, Rhule, what do you think of Darnold?

Exactly. Here's the lede of the Charlotte Observer story (emphasis mine):

Charlotte Observer wrote:

Carolina Panther coach Matt Rhule said Monday that his team’s offense is about to “redefine who we are” by taking the ball out of quarterback Sam Darnold’s hands more often and putting it more into the hands of the running backs.

Any reaction from the Carolina locker room?

Also note that the smartest guy in the room just told the Giants what Carolina's gameplan is going to be on Sunday. I mean, it's the Giants, and it might not matter, but still.

Maybe Rhule is playing some 4D ch...hahahaha sorry could not finish that sentence.

Seattle's been talking to other QBs, and in one case, the conversation prôbàblyLÖÖKÊDsômêth1ngL1KÊthis...

Translation: "Man where'd that aura go?!?"

Listen, any offensive gameplan that gets the name "Chubba Hubbard" repeated more often is an offensive gameplan I am a fan of.

What about Kaepernick?
Story just last week about him still being in football shape

He might be in shape, but he's too far removed from the game at this point. If he were to come back to the game, he would need the offseason program and training camp.

Seattle should have done it a few years ago, but there's no getting that time back.
