Also, Pat Mahomes is very, very good at football.

this is true, although it should be balanced aganst the fact that the Raiders secondary are very, very bad at football

This AB situation has been wildly entertaining.

Not if you are a Raiders fan.

Gruden has now (in only year 2 of his 10 year contract):

- lost a generational talent in Mack,
- lost a #1 WR in Cooper,
- wasted  a #1 draft pick on Kolton Miller, who is simply not up to the job
- wasted a #1 draft pick on Clelin Ferrell, who could have been picked up much later
- wasted an entire off season, embarrassing himself and the Organisation by being played for a fool by Brown
- undermined his GM
- failed (again) to fix the LB and Edge problems in the team
- ensured we go into this season with half our game plan out the window
Carr and Raiders looked pretty good tonight

Yeh - bit of a tonic alright that performance.

Brutal stretch coming up tho'

The Tesla cars look great, seem to perform great and havea  decent long range option.

Are the big drawbacks

a) the fact you can only get them seviced in Dublin
b) the worry that Tesla as a company might go bust?

Only 2million up front for Kent apparantly, rest in installements and add-ons.

A decent player but he was there last year and they still finished a fair bit behind.

I dunno - they have brought 7-8 players in on loan, who will all cost money in wages and bought another 2 for around 4mill ............ can't all be paid for by Europa League money AND leave enough over for Kent...surely?

If only Tyrone had got to the Final...... ::)

Tyrone are nowhere near the level needed to beat Dublin.

Not sure where all the Kerry hype is coming from.

Dublin were very comfortable with 15 men, holding Kerry at arms length.

Kerry struggled to even get ahead of 14 men for the best part of the second half and were still dependent on Rock missing a (albeit difficult ) free not to lose.

Add in that several Dublin players were under par, Gavin was unusually poor with his decision making and most of the Kerry team played out of their skins.....

Have a really bad feeling about Sunday.

Worst defence we have put out in years, Ajer injured so no LB or RB who can actually defend available.

Only hope is to outscore them Keegan-era Newcastle style.

Shows what I know...totally comfortable win. Gerrard helped with that enormously when he bottled it with his tactics and team selection.

Corbyn looks to be one of the worst opposition leaders in living memory. I'm really not convinced that he actually wants to stay in the EU - it looks to me like it's more a case of him being forced by his own party / remainer public opinion into everything he does these days,  rather than having any any true conviction about it.

BJ may just be playing this perfectly. If a vote of confidence is called followed by a GE, he will be able to hoover up the Brexit Party votes as he can claim that he was 100% leave and only stopped by those pesky parliamentarians.

He gets his majority and can do as he pleases for another 4 years...which I imagine will be potentially very bad news for the DUP as he's not a fella that seems to like being beholden to anyone.

On a side note - JRM on LBC this morning.....you have to admire his cojones - still firmly using the 'speak in posh voice and hope the peasants buy my bullshit' tactic, claming that BJ wasn't lying about not wanting to prorogue parliament, what he actually meant was that he didn't want to use the tudor idea of prorouging parliament.......

Just goes to show that rule#1 = find a franchise QB , should be quickly followed by rule #2 = protect that QB ........

If Luck had've been given a decent OL he could conceivably have been up there challenging for GOAT status.

Derek Carr, a decent but much more limited QB,  was in the MVP conversations a few years ago, but only behind a top 3 OL
