New Orleans are the team to beat in the NFC but it will take a good team to beat da Bears. Unfortunately a couple of poor losses like last week to the Giants will probably mean they're on the road in the playoffs because they'd be awful hard to beat in Soldier Field. Trubisky was making progress before his injury so I'd expect him to impove on last night. Goff isn't a brilliant QB but is the poster boy for what a top class coach can do.

Saints were very poor in the first half yesterday, in particular Brees.  The running game finally seemed to kick the offence into gear in the second half but overall it wasnt an impressive performance. Stuttering a little.

Rams losing was a nice bonus.

Was Gronk on the defense as protection for the hail mary? Man turned like a bus.


Ya. Between that, Brady inexplicably taking a sack to allow time expire at the end of the first half and former player Brandon Bolden's 2 TD's it was a hilarious day for those of us who do not like the Patriots. Belichick will be furious!

Gotta love Belichick press conferences, he makes Jim Gavin look animated.  I was half expecting tumbleweed to roll past at one stage.

Disgraceful treatment of Sterling, watched the clip on tv and those giving the abuse are scumbags who should get lifetime bans.

The treatment of Sterling (amongst others) has long been lamentable. It probably started for him as he was leaving Liverpool he became a poster boy for the new age "sc**bag, money obsessed" footballer and has escalated since. The newspaper campaign against him has been bizarre.

Yesterday is less clear to me, I looked at that clip several times not able to figure out which guy I was looking out for until it was pointed out to me. Without being a lip reading expert I'd not like to see a man's life ruined on that clip alone. There have been over 3m views of that tweet and social media has overwhelming decided he's guilty - off with his head..

Yeah itís not clear cut at all, but trial by twitter only ends one way

See Barry Mcelduff back in the game.

Jobs for the boys. Keep the gravy train running. Choo, Choo!!


Yeah. They are all soooo wealthy. Ching ching.

He had no case to answer according to the prosecution service, yet stood down. Whereas the DUP...

You donít have to have committed a crime to be under pressure to step down as a politician

Few people have managed the financial package he is on.

Has it been released somewhere or what sort of money would he be on?

If it comes anywhere near the finacial package he was on in Beijing then it's winner winner chicken dinner for Jimmy!!

I doubt managing in the second tier of ďsoccerĒ in the US is too lucrative

Yeah but really, what's worse? Seeing the video and doing nothing until it came to the attention of the public or bring so incredibly inept and burying their heads in the sand to not request the video in the first place?

Apparently the league asked for it several times but hotel refused to turn it over and were only obliged to turn it over to the police

Actually surprised they cut him, this isnít Ray Rice, itís a player at the top of his game on a team with a great chance of getting to a SB

Youíre surprised they cut a player kicking a woman on a video. Right.

Lol, your attempts to portray everyone else as some sort of moral low life are laughable.

The NFL has tolerated plenty of similar incidents in the past, so yes, them cutting him quickly is actually surprising.

And itís usually the league that deals with the player, teams are usually happy to take their chances and keep the player on the team. The more talent the more ďpatienceĒ..........

Did you somehow sleep through Ray Rice and MeToo? The shocking aspect is Hunt wasnít cut when the Chiefs first learnt of it, not that he belatedly was now.


Do you even read posts ? Team or league were not aware of video until now, that has widely been reported

Lol, I think you mean cut by the Chiefs after the public saw the video and they realised they were going to be fucked by the backlash. The incident is from February.

Yeah Chiefs & the authorities have known about this incident apparently but hadnít seen the video, again, allegedly
