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'

Pats looked good on the late game. Brady actually looked a bit out of sorts..... for about 3 throws and the they just dismantled the Steelers. They are just so clinical. Edelman always available, even catching a pass when Watt got to Brady and knocked the ball out and Brady connected for a couple of big completions with Gordon. The defense was rock solid all night and if AB plays like he can when he comes in they will not be far away again.

Hard to know what to make of the Steelers. They were poor and never got going on offense at all but how much of that was down to NE being so good is debatable.

Gronk was there as well unveiling the banner and was interviewed afterwards was being interviewed and was asked when he would return. Obviously tongue in cheek but.......

“What week, though, seriously,” Portnoy asked. “14? 15? I know you. Avoid the grind of the season and come back for the playoffs.” “Exactly,” Gronkowski replied with a smile. “And I’m only going to be single coverage with all those receivers we have. Won’t even get touched. Week 14.”

What a finish to the Saints game.  A fine final drive by Brees to set up a quality kick by Lutz.  Even though I think the Saints defence had about 6 sacks i have to say, how well did Watson play!?  Thought he was brilliant all night.  Texans will go far this season.

Easy, and somewhat crass, jokes aside, this will be a bit of headache for Bellichick. Pats yet to comment on it and he could up being held away. Innocent until proven guilty of course.

Then again, their billionaire owner gets $40 blowjobs from sex slaves, so Pats could just choose to ignore it.

I doubt the Pats would have taken him on if they had known about this (apparently they didn’t)

Fantasy football update says the AB was at practice and looks like he will be starting week 2 unless the league intervenes.

Yeah no one has ever been placed on the Commissioners Exempt list for a civil investigation apparently. Only criminal ones. I wonder was a complaint made to police and if not why not.

Saw that. Another joke shop.  In the long run though i dont think it would have mattered because Bridgewater isnt up to it.  Season could be over for the Saints if Brees is ruled out long term.

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