Seanie, Mitch is the pride of Mentor, Ohio, a Cleveland suburb.  His sister doesn't still live there, does she?

God the Cardinals are awful

Whole division is very underwhelming at the minute.

The NFC Worst again.
 

Looking forward to tonight. Bizarrely, there's a bit of a family connection to Mitch Trubisky so hoping he can do well. Bears without Trevathan and Willie Young is disappointing as the defence is overall not bad and I'd have fancied them against Case Keenum but with a few guys gone already and those two out it could be difficult.

Bradford is expected to play for the vikings tonight at QB

Both him and Jj Watt could be done for season.  Broken ankle and leg respectively.

I listened to it again. I'm sure he was just comparing it to his day to day QB and WRs room where they talk about Routes all day, with other players and coaches, and it sounded odd coming from a woman. But man, even in that sense giving him the benefit of the doubt it sounds stupid. She's a professional reporter, in the NFL. Why wouldn't she talk about routes and route running?


Exactly. It's not like there are very few female sports reporters.

I wonder what would happen if male sports reporters were allowed to enter female changing rooms when the athletes were changing/showering etc?
Armagh, the one true love of a mans life.

She's in college. Think his family are still there. They were afraid he was going to get drafted by the Browns!!!!

Love that fake punt call last night. What an execution as well.

Matthews? Yeah, sure he'd be a natural skating on all the frozen ponds in Scottsdale :)

Think that trade will benefit all concerned.

USA out of World Cup.  Lost 2-1 to Trinidad & Tobago, while Honduras beat Mexico 3-2 and Panama beat Costa Rica 2-1.  Honduras now play Australia in a play-off, while Mexico, Costa Rica and Panama go to Russia.
