Hey Patricia has your favorite punching bag at 2-0-1 beating the Eagles today in Philly no less
should be 3-0. they were up 24-6 in the 4th QTR and they let a crappy Arizona team starting a 5'9 rookie QB come back and tie the game. this still boils my blood.

That is the Lions for you though. They can beat very good teams like the Eagles and Chargers, but they'll shit the bed vs the crappy teams like the Cardinals. They always do stuff like that.

Remember last year when they blasted the Pats on either MNF or SNF? National TV prime-time game and they just pounded the Patriots. Beat the hell out of the eventual Super Bowl champs- but get their asses kicked and go 5-10 in all their other games.

I can never tell if Wentz is good or not. Made some just great throws, then in what should have been the drive which would have put the Packers to bed almost puts Jordan Howard in the hospital and follows it up with an atrocious 3rd down pass.

I’ve been thinking Wentz is overhyped the second he stepped into the League. During Wentz’s rookie season the announcers in every Eagles game I watched gushed with promises of his upside and maturity. Especially Gruden on MNF just went on and on. Then Wentz went on a tear on 2017 before injury realities set in. Since then Wentz has plateaued into less than a safe bet but tonight against the Packers was a very solid, poised performance.

He did look great his rookie season.I watched that game vs the Rams that December when he got injured and still played after that.Still think he has a lot of upside which I didn't think before he entered the league draft.The small colleges and players he faced were not prepping him well for Sundays or so I thought.Did not see the game last night but still plenty of time for Wentz to shake off the bogies and get his game on

Jets look like they'll be 0-7 going into the tank bowl w/ the Dolphins. Packers should really call them and try to make a deal for LeVeon Bell.  

Rodgers he still looks like one the best in the league w/ the whole field to work with but inside the 20, he's been very inaccurate and looks to have lost his touch on short passes. After the 1st down pass at the 1, the Eagles didn't even play run and sent everyone after Rodgers. Without a running game they'll get dispatched in the divisionals or Rodgers is going to get hurt again. 

Plus Bell, even though the stats don't show it, still looks very good. Sure he might cost say a No.1 (low-mid 20s) but the Jets would be eating a ton of dead money so he wouldn't couldn't much against the cap. Also Melvin Gordon is available I guess, might cost less but you'll have to resign him but I don't think he's as good.

I'm not sure the Jets are ready to give up, 3 of their best players (Darnold, Williams and Mosley) are out injured.  I don't disagree necessarily, but I don't see them trading a guy 3 games into a 4 year contract.

Ya they'd have to be compensated well but the window on the Packers is closing with Rodgers age so maybe

Jets ain’t winning anything any time soon. Brady isn’t going anywhere for this year or the next 2-3 years imo. And I’m not sold on Darnold. At all. If I was a GM, I’d trade Bell. Get as many picks as you can for him. Bad teams need to trade their best players for picks if they want to get better. Cardinals should’ve done it years ago with Fitz. Lions should’ve done it with Barry and Calvin and Suh really. 

Packers should’ve manned up and got Bell last year while he was holding out. Don’t see them doing it right now.

They might not challenge for the division, but aside from the Patriots and Chiefs, who in the AFC would you bet on being good 2 years from now?

Steelers and Chargers are done IMO.  Watson is going to get broken because they can't put a line in front of him.  Browns don't look so hot anymore.  I'm still not sold on Lamar Jackson.  I still think Darnold is going to be good.  Not great, but a QB you can win with on a rookie contract because of the talent you can surround him with, and they are going to add another high pick next year, and can either get Chase Young to pair with Quinnen Williams on that line, or Andrew Thomas to anchor the line.  I actually think this window, when they have Bell, and some defensive talent, and Darnold on the cheap is their only chance to win.  Because after that they'll have to pay him, and they'll go the way of every other team that has to pay their middling quarterback.
