    Fans of the other 31 teams must be so far beyond sick of Tommy by now.

    Are there any other relevant players in this league?

    EA's doing top 16 matches on Madden right now. It's nice to kill it for now.




    Without Peyton in the league, Gronk getting always hurt, the same for JJ Watt... The stars are dwindling.

    Maybe Von Miller may be in the cover next time, but if he wasn't after being SB MVP... Who knows.

    That's probably the first thing everyone thinks about when they think of Tom Brady vs Seattle

    Pretty excited about the Eagles this year. A little confused with their draft choices- should have grabbed a cornerback first round, but I can deal with a defensive end. That defensive line looking mad scary right now with Derek Barnett and Fletcher Cox.

    I think Blount will be an interesting watch over in Philly. We'll see if he can scratch out enough to work a decent contract while he still has time. Not much time and any contact won't be long at all, but he's was damn near playing for free in NE.

    *Edit*

    Didn't realize the deal was for 2.8 for the one year. Obviously better than another year in NE, though the you'd expect a little more for the TDs and workload potential.

    Blount is one of the most overrated players in the entire NFL imo.

    I've watched like almost every pats game the 3 years and for the life of me I don't understand why people think hes anything better than mediocre.

    His reputation is boosted by all the 1 yard TDs he gets from playing with Brady and 2 playoff games against the colts.

    He Has zero pass game ability, takes forever to get to the LOS and gets tackled for no gain far too much for a guy that plays against light boxes every down.

    There's a reason the Patriots offense went bananas in the superbowl when James white replaced him.

    Also he literally quit on the Steelers mid-season to join the Patriots.

    There's a reason the Bucs let him go and the Steelers cut him in the middle of a week between games. He had paper success in New England for the exact reasons Pretzels said (ugh I hate agreeing with Pretzels bleeeeeeeeeurgh)

    And Fitzpatrick continues his NFL team tour in Tampa Bay. Winston better be ready for his new home in IR.

    Ryan Fitzpatrick is not a worse quarterback than Colin Kaepernick

    Yeah I'm sorry Fitz has had good seasons but I'm never going to forget Kap tearing our asshole open in 2012 at the Georgia Dome ;(

    Speaking of which... so many memories there. I'm going to miss it

    He's a better starter than about ten teams in the league have and would be a far more talented backup than most of the league and the high price tag thing is being tossed around a lot but it's simply not true. How can he be asking for a lot of money when people aren't calling him in the first place.

    Someone mentioned this on the radio a week back or so but can you seriously think of any player who has refused to budge on price so much that he literally priced himself out of professional play? Has that seriously ever happened?

    Well I can understand a few these teams not signing him because they're embracing the ol'tankaroo and he might net them 2-3 wins (jets and browns)

    Ultimately I think he'll be signed by the Seahawks or some other team that isn't dumb AF to be the backup
