Lions suck. Struggling with a crap team in Arizona. Kyler Murray looks like a huge bust in the making. He just doesn’t have it to play at this level imo.

Saquon Barkley is so much better than every RB in the NFL it’s a joke. Reminds me of Barry back in the 90s. Just so clearly to superior to everyone else.
On the bright side, TJ Hockenson is a stud in the making.

He looks phenomenal. Better than I hoped he was. Looks like a guy that will be a perennial Pro Bowler every year and have a shot at the HOF if he stays healthy. *KNOCKS ON WOOD*

He definitely looks like the best TE the Lions have ever had. By far. If he stays healthy and continues to improve- he will have an amazing career. I just feel bad for him that he's going to have to waste that career playing for the Detroit Lions. If I was him, I'd try to force a trade right now. I've seen this story before. Lions seem to draft a truly incredible player once ever 10-20 years and just waste that players career. Suh was smart enough to GTFO- but Barry and Calvin wasted arguably the greatest RB and WR talent ever for a decade each in Detroit. I'd hate to see that happen to Hockenson. I think he's really got that kind of ability as far as TE's go. No one will ever be Gronk- but this dude looks like a Gronk Lite. Or Diet Gronk if you'd like. Really hate to see him waste all that talent and potential in Detroit.

I'd feel the same way about Matt Stafford- but that dude has made like $250 million plus- so hard to feel sorry for someone with that much loot.

god damn do the Pats look good. This is without N’Keal Harry, Demarius Thomas, and Antonio Brown. It’s not going to be fair when they get all them back.

17-0 on the Steelers in a flash. Does any player own another team as badly as Brady owns the Steelers? Seems like he just destroys them every time he plays them.

The Steelers have a couple wins against him. Brady is like 6-0 or 7-0 against Rivers's Chargers. I don't think he ever lost to Rodgers either (small sample size). 

To my knowledge the only teams in the NFL that have given Brady fits are the Ravens and the Dolphins at Miami. The Giants almost a decade ago would play well against them as well.

I just looked it up.

He's 12-3 all-time vs the Steelers and he's thrown for 4,450 yards and 34 TD's vs only 5 INT's in those 15 games and his offenses average 36 PPG vs the Steelers. JESUS CHRIST. He has abused the Steelers his entire career.

Antonio Brown accused of rape by his former female sports trainer. He met her in college, and they were friends for years before it got sexual according to the girl. She filed a civil suit in the state of Florida (where Brown is from). She hasn't gone to the police and tried to have him charged with sexual assault. Looks like she's just suing him for money. That's just weird. I'm pretty sure the Pats already knew this was coming.

It can be unusual, but it makes a hell of a lot of sense.  Going the criminal route means she has to go through all the same bullshit but doesn't get any money at the end.

Also, it's not like I'm giving Antonio Brown the benefit of the doubt for pretty much anything.

Yeah, I don't know. If someone raped you, wouldn't you want to put them in jail? She's going to go through the bullshit regardless. Might as well put him in jail and THEN sue in ciivl court and get the money. That option is always going to be there.

EDIT: it sounds like the incidents happened in 2017 and 2018- and she never went and filed a police report or went to a hospital and had a rape kit done. She hired a lawyer and went to have lie detector tests done. That raises immediate red-bullshit-flags to me. Still have to wait for everything to come out- but if that is true- then her case doesn't pass the smell test to me.

Double EDIT: I don't think he should be suspended/cut or put on the commissioners exemption list. This is a civil case- not a criminal one- and who knows if it's even legit. The guy has acted like a clown with the Steelers and the Raiders- but that doesn't mean he's a rapist.

I dunno - if my choices were someone would possibly (but probably unlikely) be in jail or I'd likely get 6-7 figures, I'd probably choose the latter.  Who wouldn't?

She could always sue in civil court after the criminal case is finished. That option isn't ever going to just go away. And the standard for evidence in civil court is so much lower than it is in criminal court. Even if she lost the criminal case- she could still win the civil or force a settlement with Brown just to make the case go away and Brown to get on with his life. Celebs/powerful people and their insurance companies do this all the time. Just settle civil cases to make them go away.

My guess is she doesn't want to have to get cross examined in criminal court and watch her entire case get ripped apart. Huge red flags to me. She doesn't file a police report or go to a hospital to get a rape kit. She hires a lawyer and takes lie detector tests. Makes total sense. Not.

She can always sure later but it's a lot easier to get a lot of money while he still has a lot of it.  Honestly, I think going through the criminal justice system on this is Stupid with a capital S.  She got some good advice from her lawyer.

The State appealed the decision which essentially threw out all their evidence - no idea when that would be heard.
