Well if other teams would stop trading them a 10000 draft picks that they can then flip for players

It's like the rest of the league is engineered to just keep the Patriots machine rolling.

This is usually around where I give up the sports management game, after a decade+ of utter dominance where the CPU keeps letting me get away with it, because it's too unrealistic.

unsurprising to anyone who watched the Falcons straight up take a dive in the second half of Super Bowl 51

Interestingly, that episode aired 10 days before Pulp Fiction came out in theatres. Was wondering the timeline on that...

I like how the Texans are so all in this year that they just trading all the draft picks. It’s almost like we don’t have a GM and the coach is just winging it.

oh wait.

Even if you know nothing about the Raiders, you will always remember him for three simple words;  OLD MAN WILLIE .  That interception will be still be awesome to watch in 2040.

Emmanuel Sanders and a 5th round pick in 2020 to the 49ers for a 3rd and 4th round pick in the 2020 Draft per ESPN.

Detroit is putting Kerryon Johnson on IR after he got knee surgery this morning. 

I *think* this means he's done for the year?   Or he could return like the last week of the season?

It really feels like they are giving up on the season, which is kinda strange. They are in last place and probably out of the division race, but they've played fairly well and it seems like they would still have a decent shot at a wild card if they can get a few positive breaks.

If the #2 team in the NFC West gets one wildcard spot based on how the season is going now, I don't see an automatic lock for that other NFC wildcard spot. Anyone can make a run between now and the final couple weeks.

Gordon was placed on the minor injury IR. That means he can return but not with the Patriots.

It’s becoming obvious the Jets don’t deserve Sam Darnold

This video from NFL Films on Brown is tremendous. That footage of the pick 6 with him running right at the camera is phenomenal.

I can't tell you how much time I spent watching NFL Films as a kid/teenager.  I have a DVD documentary about the start of NFL Films, and you'll realize that essentially all of modern sports presentation is everyone else playing catch up with NFL Films.  With that said, their magnum opus is probably the Autumn Wind segment.  It's pretty fitting that the last two shots are Willie Brown running towards the camera and Al Davis mouthing, "Just win, baby."  This shit still gives me goosebumps, it's just my childhood football fandom wrapped up in about 55 seconds.

Pats have traded Michael Bennett to the Cowboys for a 7th round pick that could improve to a 6th round in 2021

Hell yeah. I used to rent NFL Films DVDs from the video store and then Netflix's DVD service. The music, the narration, the footage. It's the best.

Man I'm glad the Seahawks parted ways with him when they did. He was a solid performer on the field but such a headache. Always chirping about his contract.

Could the Vikings pick it up in the second half?  I want to go to sleep at a normal time and not stay up late for a third night in a row with at least two more Friday and Saturday.
