And people thought Antonio Brown would change ?!

He could be done in Oakland already, threatened to hit GM Mike Mayock today in an altercation

Why they couldn't have had this argument and suspension drama before the B league draft on tuesday I will never know.
i got him too ,hes  heading int Terrell Owens territory now with his diva behavior.

Raiders need to cut their loses on AB now. Hes created an absolute circus and this last episode should be the final nail in the coffin

In fairness, anyone drafting AB with anything resembling an early pick needs a slap. Derek Carr throwing to him ffs

Raiders have a new stadium to seel season tickets for and they've no stars. They were desperate for a big name player to advertise their franchise. Whoops.

Recorded it and woke up at 2.30am and started watching, fast forwarding the breaks and halftime. Caught up in the 4th quarter. Tough loss for da Bears. Defense was lights out - look to be almost at last years levels. Thought Rodgers got a little lucky with the TD. When the ball left his hand I was sure it was going to be picked but Graham held off the DB very well. In fairness, Rodgers had produced a moment of magic to set up the field position. Bears offense was poor. Showed one or two flashes and were a little unfortunate not to get the TD to tie when a DB with his back to the ball flicked out his arm to deny a certain TD for Mike Davis. Trubisky made a terrible decision on 3rd down to seal the game and had an uninspiring night. Terrible night in terms of penalties for a usually disciplined Bears. Green Bay's defense is clearly better than last season though it must be said, both offenses looked rusty and will improve.

As a Bears fan, the strength of the D, flashed from Montgomery and Allen Robinson were the main positives. Lookds like Mike Davis will have a sizeable role too and he looked sharp.

Robinson looked sharper than he has for a couple of years alright.

He did. If the Bears are to succeed on offense he's crucial. This offense is better than the one he was in in Jacksonville so if his physical attributes are restored (looks like they are), he could be a monster.
