No, I get it, coaches are leaders, father/uncle figures that have to represent and live a strict life, no fuck ups once so ever, well, maybe besides cheating on your wife. But who knows, the marriage could be open. None of our business. My main thing is the EA Sports headline in transitioning away from Gruden while others can disobey that.

Well then shouldn’t you be pushing for EA and the NFL to hold those players accountable instead of voicing concern over how Gruden was handled?

That’s not even what I’m referring to as coaches are humans too. Any pro sports league will turn a blind eye to player misconduct if the player is talented enough and they can cash in on their performance. It’s the same reason some players are given second, third, and fourth chances when undrafted/practice squad players are not.

Gruden is not only not a player, he was an underperforming coach that was one third into a $100m contract with a 22-31 record. Mark Davis was probably doing backflips after getting out of that contract. I bet Gruden got a piece of the remainder owed to resign and go quietly but that’s a different story altogether.

Joe Thomas firing up the crowd outside Lincoln Financial Field “Run The Ball!”. Tampa Bay has best run D in the NFL though.

Coming out of a commercial break fans chant “F Joe Biden” and then “F Tom Brady”. Keep it classy, Philly, keep it classy.

Ertz would need to pass a physical and get covid tests first, right?
Yeah I assume there's no way he suits up Sunday after playing yesterday. I wonder if that corner was a contributor?

Watching this game and Lawrence is getting no help.

He's making some really athletic plays to escape pressure and make tough throws ND it's just drop after drop.

When they upgrade the skill positions things will start to come together.

Agreed. For all the bashing Urban gets, this is a horrible team he is coaching. That doesn’t get said enough.

Doesn't he have a big say in who is on the team?
He inherited the worst team in the league in his first year. There's only so much you can do under those circumstances. You can't overhaul an NFL roster in one year...well, you could, but you wouldn't have any success (short term or long term) doing so.
