Seems like a core player.

I think the Bengals should go after Nate Orchard next.

He'll have a hard time covering Juice Landry.
Nate, is that the dude with the hot ass wife who made all the cookies?

Maybe the can get The Worm to come out of retirement?

Wait wrong sport.

The dad joke concept was bad, the replies were worse, then it kept going and I turned off the internet for an hour.

Surprised no one has posted about the new NFL TV rights agreements. Looking like the series of agreements will total in the neighborhood of $100 billion or more.

Some of the big changes:

- Thursday Night Football to exclusively air on Prime Video (15 regular season games and one preseason game per year)
- ABC back in the Super Bowl rotation for the first time since 2006 (Super Bowl LXI and LXV)
- Flex scheduling for Monday Night Football after Week 11
- Game simulcasts on the digital platforms of CBS (Paramount+), Fox (Tubi) and NBC (Peacock)
- Sunday morning International Series game to exclusively air on ESPN+
- Peacock to air "one exclusive national game" a year from 2023-2028 and “deliver an exclusive feed of a select number of NFL games over the course of the agreement.”

Also, seems like the expectation is that this will bump the cap to around $200 million for the 2022 league year and $230 million+ for 2023.
Just to add more to this - ESPN is also getting additional postseason games, three MNF doubleheaders per season and a Saturday doubleheader in the last week of the regular season.

Lol. The future of the Steelers is this loser and this clown:


It’s a beautiful thing.

Claypool forgot the rules. You can break the law and the NFL does not give a fuck.

What you can't do is get caught on video doing it.

Steeler fans here in Pittsburgh - "That fight happened almost two weeks ago, who cares?"

Me - "Most of your Super Bowls happened over 40 years ago. Who cares?"

I'm kind of curious as to why these top of the draft trades happen now instead of on draft day. I suppose it's each side taking a bit of risk to get the price they need to pull the trigger.
Just a guess the dolphins secured the eagles trade before the 49ers trade. I would assume they have high confidence their pick will be there.

Another thought is that this gives both teams enough time to adjust course.

I know Chris Simms gets a lot of hate, but when it comes to his prospect evaluations, I have to give him credit if what he says is true.

He claims that he doesn't look at outside information. He does the film work himself, and releases his lists, without looking at how other places have the guys ranked. If that's true, then I think it's awesome. Too many draft sites are all pretty much the same with consensus rankings. I wish more people could put out "here's what my eyes tell me" and not be ridiculed for being out-of-line with the consensus rankings.

That's the only good thing I can say about him. He's a douche-canoe. But on this one point, I'm glad he exists. It's an interesting data point to look at every year.

There's an awful lot of circle-jerking when it comes to draft prognostication, which is why the pundits often miss collectively. They all figure it's better to be as wrong as everyone else than to be wrong and alone.

So I agree - it's nice when someone thinks for themselves.
