Blake Bortles has never thrown four interceptions in a game.

 

Unlike some other AFC South QBs.

Finally, according to sources with direct knowledge of the call, Jones broke the silence. He aimed his words not only at Goodell's decision but also at his role as judge, jury and executioner in the case.

 

"I'm gonna come after you with everything I have," Jones said. Then he mentioned Deflategate. "If you think Bob Kraft came after you hard, Bob Kraft is a p---y compared to what I'm going to do."

I can hear that wealthy hillbilly saying those words. He really is the real-life Boss Hogg.

 

Meanwhile, Jameis Winston is under investigation for groping an Uber driver - https://deadspin.com/report-nfl-investigating-jameis-winston-for-groping-ub-1820547182?utm_campaign=socialflow_deadspin_twitter&utm_source=deadspin_twitter&utm_medium=socialflow

 

Turns out the rapey idiot is, in fact, a rapey idiot!

I'm into the theory that the whole Jones/Goodell feud is a huge ruse to bury all the anthem stories.

Well if it is, its working because we haven't heard much about the anthem controversy for a while. 

 

But I don't think it is. Jones is such a megalomaniac its all about his fucking team. 

 

Made me both chuckle and shake my head when I heard yesterday that the Cowboys haven't reached an NFC title game in 22 years; and they aren't going this year so it'll be 23 come 2018.

Aren't we overdue for some coach firings?  Seems like we're due.

Of course it happened in Scottsdale, where all NFL players come to drink, fight, punch hookers, get arrested and sexually assault women.

This Sunday, the Cardinals will be starting...Blaine Gabbert.

 

I can't believe this video is still relevant. TWO THREE FAWWW!!

 

post #810 of 1046

Larry Fitzgerald has re-upped his contract for 2018.

 

I'm going to be totally honest: if this means Palmer, Arians and Arians' coaching staff are around for another year too, then I'm taking a break and finding another team for next year. I've had a blast watching and rooting for the Saints this year, and I might just stay on the bandwagon next season. Shit, I might even buy a Browns jersey and join Mangy. That's how shitty things are in Arizona.

 

Call me what you will, but I can't watch the Cardinals spend another season with horrible coaching, refusal to adapt and adjust, and settling for another season of mediocrity instead of making changes.

I found a jersey for you DT.  Take your pick.

The local fans are all clamoring for Gabbert. It blows my fucking mind.
post #814 of 1046

That's how abused we've been with Palmer and Stanton.

 

Gabbert is only appealing because we don't know which fist he'll hit us with.

You’re welcome on the Saints bandwagon anytime. I can recommend a dedicated Saints board if you want as well.

I agree. At least "interesting" in the way a major accident pile up with flashing red lights on the highway is interesting. 

post #819 of 1046
The Browns are almost endearing in their badness. But the Cardinals... I think Bill Bidwill stole from a gypsy at some point, and they put a curse on him.

He can never die, and we can never win a Super Bowl until he does.
post #820 of 1046
For the last decade the Cardinals have been the definition of the parity in the league. They've made a handful of playoff appearances, won some divisions, got to the Super Bowl, and cumatively have been around .500 overall. I undrrstand they're trending downward, and have never won the super bowl, so I get why you're frustrated. But worth abandoning ship, cursed monkey paw sort of a deal? I don't see it. They're just not special.
post #821 of 1046
A few years ago, flush with excitement at the future of our franchise QB, I bought a Josh Freeman jersey. Freeman promptly forgot how to play, fell off a cliff, and was eventually out of the league.

This year, flush with excitement at the future of our franchise QB, I bought a Jameis Winston jersey. We rolled off a five-game losing streak, Winston got hurt, and is now under investigation.

Anybody got a QB they want cursed?

It was bound to happen when they signed Fitzpatrick. He must have studied voodoo at Harvard.

Well, Winston getting investigated was pretty predictable. You had to just be hoping he'd win a Super Bowl, wreck his motorcycle without a helmet and do a Papa John's commercial first.

There's more to it. Bruce Arians being a horrible playcaller and surrounding himself with horrible playcallers that he refuses to fire because they're "his guys". We're neck and neck with Denver for the worst special teams coordinator in the league. Having an elite defense that can't make a fucking play because our defensive coordinator is a moron who's still running his predecessor's playbook because he doesn't know what else to do.

Knowing we had an older, injury prone QB and never preparing for the future through four or five drafts now. Keeping Drew Stanton even though he doesn't practice because he's Palmer's friend and Palmer is Arians' guy.

Drafting a pass rusher or a bust lineman every year instead of making moves and addressing problems because our GM talks a big talk but he's a big pussycat who can't manage the team aggressively. Instead, all we do is sign more older, injury-prone vets and squeeze the last drops out of them before they're done for good or get seriously injured.

And our on-air personality and national color commentator is Ron fucking Wolfley. Google him. Better yet, look him up on YouTube - he's the worst. He makes watching bad games all the more painful.

The team's identity is just fractured. It's time to clean house and stop letting the GM and head coach run it like it's their boys club, and bring in people interested in winning.

Huh. I was going to say "yeah, this is Green Bay after Aaron Rodgers goes" but our color/play-by-play guys are fucking fantastic. (our defensive talent isn't near Arizona's, either)

Somebody needs to call 911 because Jadaveon Clowney is killing the Cardinals.

So the Jags toughed out a win at the Browns.. on a day where the Browns had zero penalties assessed against them.

 

I'm not going to lie, the weather plus the injuries (two starting O-linemen out) had me nervous. Just glad they could survive and advance.

 

Next week.. out to the desert to face our dear old friend GLAINE BABBERT

I did that with Kordell Stewart (tanked), Polamalu (got injured), and Roethlisberger (motorcycle accident). I quit buying jerseys unless they are of players that have already retired.

post #833 of 1046
Benching Taylor seems like one of the worst decisions of the year. I’m going to guess Buffalo will be drafting a QB in the first round.

On the plus side Trubisky played Good but the Bears still lost improving their draft position.

Cardinals lost in a shootout to Tom Savage.

Yeah, I'm feeling good about taking a break from this team.

Might be about a ten year break. Cards window is closed.
post #836 of 1046
Oh yeah. Devildoubt pointed out that Larry's contract re-up was just to give him options, and I think he's completely right.

We're done. And I worry that the team isn't smart enough to know it's time for a rebuild.

Normally, I'd agree with you. But I think in the NFL, you can actually have a pretty quick turnaround (unlike in the NBA where you don't win if you don't have a superstar). Maybe not a SB win or even an appearance but you can at least be pretty good through the draft and free agency. Then there's also that "6 in 6 out rule" playoff rule. So there's hope for the Cards D.T.  The Browns..., not so much.

I was about to write a rebuttal to this until I read the last sentence.

 

The Browns were down one score to Jacksonville up until about 2 minutes to go, and there was STILL no way they were going to win. Their offense is the worst I've ever seen; I'm still not sure how they scored a TD.

post #839 of 1046
Hope keeps building that the Vikings are the real deal this year. Yesterday's game was really, really strong against a very solid team, and you can see the confidence building in every player.

Man would it be cool to have the Vikings in the superbowl this year, especially since we're actually hosting it. If they made it and they won the damned thing, it would be sheer pandemonium around the state for a month.
post #840 of 1046

Judas, I'd still be mad that the Vikes didn't win it when it would have meant making Prince happy.

 

You blew it regardless!

The team to beat in the NFC is Philadelphia. The road to a Super Bowl is going through them.

Lots of people were saying the Vikings could be the team to bring the Rams back down to earth.  Good for them! They're such a strong home team - if they did win the division and managed to secure home field in the playoffs, they'd be scary as fuck to play against.

Having head to head tiebreakers now against the Saints and Rams, two other teams in position for that first round bye, doesn’t hurt either.

McDermott decides to wait to see the game tape from last week's Bills game before deciding on a QB, since Peterman "did some pretty darn good things" in between 5 INTs in the first half - https://twitter.com/JoeBuscaglia/status/932675121449521152 

It's fascinating to watch a coach kneecap his credibility halfway through his first season.

post #845 of 1046

He did some great things. He teamed up with the Chargers defense and helped me beat a fantasy opponent that had Fournette, D. Lewis, Brown, Thielen and the Jacksonville defense.

 

That was no small feat, and if I could get my hands on Kansas City's D/ST, I'd love to see him do more great things next week.

I was just about to say this. Philadelphia is a good example of what a team can accomplish with solid offensive and defensive lines.
post #847 of 1046

State of things in Arizona: Yesterday after the loss to Houston, Bruce Arians absorbed the blame for calling the one yard run for Adrian Peterson with the game on the line. Our offensive line sucks, everyone knows it, and we'd been running that same fucking play all day. Houston pushed AP back for a loss of yardage.

 

Today, however, he told the media that he no longer accepts the blame, thinks he made the right call, and it's all the players' fault for not executing.

 

It's time for him to fucking go.

post #848 of 1046

It boggles my mind that the pre-season darling Bucs are 4-6 and the left-for-dead Jaguars are 7-3.  

post #849 of 1046
Seattle should just cut their offensive line and put the freed up money into receivers.
post #850 of 1046

Pete Carroll with maybe the dumbest call since he didn't hand it to Marshawn.  Even if you get the first down, what does it benefit you with a few seconds left?  So dumb.

 

Edit- Especially when you end up losing by 3.
