    I didn't see one so I started one. Dedicated to all things football. When I say football I don't mean soccer.

    Fuck the Raiders! Go Broncos!

    Khalil Mack traded to the Bears. Insane.

    Giving up 2 first rounders was dumb.

    I'm a huge Bengals fan and am cautiously optimistic this season.

    Our offense could be special if the right side of the O-line doesn't fall to pieces.

    Can't wait for this season. I'm a Pats fan but not a rider of the bandwagon. I'm in Michigan so I've been watching Tom Brady since U of M. I'm also a Lions fan, but only because I'm a glutton for punishment, lol.

    Yeah. 2 first rounders... wow. That's worth one Mitchel Trubiski using Bears logic! Who would do that?!

    haha

    I think Nate Solder showed the league that O line men should be paid, and are 100% worth it. I get it too, the Broncos O line was soooo terrible the last 2 years.

    I am totally fine with what the Bears paid. Barring injury, they are now a much more exciting team. How far can Mitch take them? How much can the D make up for his shortcomings?

    I say the Bears still miss the playoffs.

    And Mack's salary keeps their hands tied in other areas.

    I bet that's exactly why Gruden traded him. The rest of their D needs a lot of help.

    Yes I think you're right about why Raiders decided to pass on Mack.

    But on the Bears side they got a top elite player at a crucial position. One that they were quite weak at. While the QB is still on a rookie deal.

    The Bears/Packers game was brutal. Mack basically won that game for Chicago, then Aaron Rodgers happened... again.

    I'm worried it'll be short-lived for the Packers. With Rodgers' injury history, I'm afraid this will be a season-long issue.

    I still think the Bears screwed up on the Mack deal.

    Already has a leg injury. Crazy comeback they put together though. Bears had that one.

    So I think the Bills are going to trade their 2019 first overall pick for 2 #1s and 2 #2s and draft a receiver, a running back to replace LeSean McCoy who will be leaving after this year and 146 offensive lineman, so there will be no deaths at the quarterback position going forward...

    That would be a good start...

    That game against the Ravens was brutal.

    Happy Who Dey, everyone!

    I have a student that is a Ravens fan, and I felt bad for them this morning. Last night's loss probably hit him hard. So, I set his desk up with a little care package from me to him.

    1) My room is pretty cold and he always wears these ugly purple t-shirts. So, if he needs to warm up, I've got a nice cozy Bengals jacket waiting on his chair.

    2) After such a devastating loss, one is sure to feel a little lonely and sad. So, I've got a happy little Bengals teddy bear on his desk waiting for cuddles and a general warming of the spirit.

    3) After such a rough night, I was worried he might not have time to fix his hair. So, a Bengals hat is on his desk ready and waiting. Sure, it's against school rules to wear a hat in the building, but I'm okay bending the rules in this one instance.

    Don't let anyone tell you that teachers don't care.

    That's 2 wins in a row (at least), for the Bengals over the Ravens. You know for management of the Bengals not giving a crap about, they sure do win a bunch of games...

    There are so many false narratives out there about the Bengals. They'll stick until they finally win a playoff game.

    That's so harsh. Poor kid. I love it!

    I'll send you a Broncos thermos after the Bengals lose to Denver. I know your voice will be raw from screaming obscenities at Dalton all night, so what better than some nice soothing hot tea to recover?

    Deshone Kizer...
    • OMG. This guy sucks. Footwork, vision, intangles. Everything says NOT NFL material.
    • Ruined himself by getting into the draft early. Should have spent another year at ND.
    • Ruined by being drafted by the Cleveland Browns and put into the fire as a rookie, thus allowing him to reinforce his bad habits / suckage for an entire season.

    That game was awesome. Mack was a monster and I loved how be made Deshone Kizer shit in his pants. Unfortunately, he (along with the rest of the Bears DL) ran of stream after the second half. I'm sure GB picking up the pace didn't help the Bears DL.
