I think the Vikes are going to pretty good this season.

I’ve never experienced anyone working at CFA being a jerk or rude but yesterday I encountered a guy in the drive thru who was not only rude but a jerk. When I finally had my order and he didn’t even say my pleasure I yelled “thanks for being a jerk” and drove off.

Good, they can finish 2nd in the division (easily) and hope for a Wildcard slot.

This isn't brought up near enough.

That was not a good team we barely beat at home.  We seriously may not win another game this season. - BASS January 20, 2018, 07:40:43 PM

Drew Morgan sighting.  He just ran about 30 yards at near full speed to fair catch a punt.  And he seems to be a passable decoy on pass plays.   But at least he hasn't spit on anyone.

Looks like BA's not even going to get in the game at Jacksonville. I hope he finds a way to get on another team. That organization sucks balls.

3rd string guys don't normally play in the week 3 of the preseason...it's kind of a dress rehersal and only legit players like Blake Bortels and Chad Henne get any run.

To Animals point, this can play in his favor.  He will likely start next week and get at least a half. I think he has done enough to at least keep his job this season.  The issue here is on Bortles.  This game is likely to define his career; a bad half and he might get cut with Henne starting and BA at 2.  It being Jacksonville, its a complete shitshow from their lunatic owner to Doug Marrone and senile Tom Coughlin.  Whatever the right decision is they will not make it.

I would bet Allen starts and plays the entire game unless the Jags want to carry the QB competition out. That last preseason game is normally a development game.

I think they'll make the economic decision to cut Bortles and pick up a veteran that may over take Henne. Bortles is probably still the better option but it sounds like they may be ready to move on.

Allen could show that he's an option as the primary backup but I doubt they do that. He will prob go back on the practice squad.

Is Nick Foles on the trading block?

I thought they had a fourth arm in camp, if so I dont think they'll want to risk Allen playing with scrubs against scrubs fighting for their jobs and film.  If they dont have a fourth QB then hell play the whole game. Unless they want to see if Bortles can play against a bunch of never will bes.

If Bortles doesn't win the starting job, they would be morons to keep him on just to be a backup.
It's pretty much Henne or Bortles at this point, and if Henne wins out, they don't seem to have much of an issue with carrying BA as a backup.

Looks like Knile had a subpar night for the Steelers or the o-line can't block worth a damn. Cobi was targeted three times and has one catch.

And with the Steelers driving towards the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown, Landry Jones does his thing and throws a pick. At least he's consistent.

Bottles has evidently"won" the starting job. It's a travesty if yyask me and a matter of money. BA is clearly the most effective QB on that roster

The entire Jags organization is just doing what they have done best for years.

Julian Edelman is out with an ACL

Bortles should go out there and fall down and collect his check for the year.

Hitchens is out for the season, was starting LB for the Cowgirls

Saints defense looking pretty solid.  Lattimore at CB looks like the real deal.

Cowboys continue to struggle with injuries.  Hitches had greatly improved and was having a fantastic preseason, now likely out for season. 

The mighty OLine is a mess after losing two starters to FA and retirement.  Chaz Green was slated for LG and went down again with an injury last night.  Collins is struggling with move to RT and the backups are marginal.

The secondary has loads of talent but every one is hurt.

I think Dak is a studious player who will constantly drive to improve.  If the line were intact I think the offense would be a powerhouse.  Ryan switzer, if healthy, really adds a tough equation paired with Beasley in the slots.  Dez is finally healthy.  Witten is really revitalized.  Alfred Morris and DMac are improved at blitz pickup.  That LG slot is the real hole.

Spencer Ware reportedly gone for the year...KC will probably need to pick up a guy because I'm not so sure Hunt is ready to carry the load. Would like to see Alex Collins get a shot seeings how the Seahawks appear loaded at RB.

Elway has made very few mistakes since he took the team over but I don't think the Broncos are going to be a viable contender this year with Simian and apparently Lynch is just not developing. 

Underwhelming run game and mediocre passing game isn't going to win the new AFC West.

Lions sign Stafford to extension worth 5 yrs $135million making him highest paid player.  0 playoff wins, but it's Detroit.

$92mil guaranteed.

There is 1 Super Bowl ring among the top 5-paid QB's.

Did I dream that I heard a radio report that Hitchens is only out 8 weeks?  No ligament damage, but broken top of the tibia, which many people walking down the street have, but don't realize except their knee always hurts.
