    That would indicate Winston got hurt so at that moment I know the season is a lost cause anyway. We needed a Vet backup and while I would of rather of had Kaep personally, I don't mind Fitzpatrick.

    Welcome to Tampa Fitz Magic.

    We know. It'll happen.

    Fitz being your backup is a curse. The starter always gets hurt, and Fitz always gets his contract.

    Why?

    This issue with OT has always been one team may never see the ball, not the length

    Player safety is their reason, which makes it even more stupid because from what I heard, doing this would eliminate around 0.06% of the plays run during the season, since so so very very few times an OT game makes it 10 minutes.

    You can only celebrate in ways we find acceptable! I get its a business and they worry about the image, but fuck old people they will watch anyway. They need to get the young generation and I think celebrations help that. They sure as hell allow more storylines which is only good. They take this game way too seriously.

    I don't know why the NFL doesn't use the Arena League's OT system. Both teams get the ball no matter what, then it's sudden death.

    As for celebrations, part of me enjoys them and another part remembers how silly Joe Horn having a cell phone under the goal post was.

    They should use soccer rules. Just let a draw be a draw unless it's a finals game. The current OT Rules would be fine then just don't bother with OT in regular season. If they were to change anything about current OT rules both teams should get at least one series on offence.

    Last I remember defensive players get paid, first team to score in OT should win.

    Truth be told, I think it's a bad idea in general. I mean, what are the legitimate chances that the ones who wouldn't have made the 75 originally, would make the 53?

    It just makes it tougher to find time in the end of the Preseason for all these guys for actual evaluation and the ones who would've been cut would've at least found another team to try for.

    David Quessenbery was back at Texans practice. If you haven't heard of him it's because he spent the last three years fighting cancer. No guarantee to make any roster but still great he's back on the field.

    Stadium probably isn't ready. The NFL also has a policy that requires the stadium to be up and running for an entire season before being eligible for a Super Bowl bid.

    Florida will have two Super Bowls back-to-back with the Super Bowl LV move from LA to Tampa.

    He made a career feeding off the awful Cowboys secondary. He looked like a middle of the pack 3rd WR last year. A decent gamble and low risk so why not.

    Just saw this but California was hit with rain pretty bad this year. Hadn't rained like that in 15 ish years. The rain fucked up the construction spot and delayed everything by a year so they won't start building until next year i believe. For a site to host a super bowl the stadium has to have been open for at least two years and with the delay it will be only open for one year

    Obviously this means God is angry at the Rams and Chargers. May they both be smote in the standings for many seasons.

    Rams wont be good. Chargers might be okay but their division is brutal right now.

    So Kaep may get signed by the Seahawks. I'm fine with it. Good for him.

    Even better for him since he won't be the one that has to stand behind that Hawks O-line.

    His TD/INT ratio is still really good at his completion percentage isn't as terrible as people act. Like he's good enough to start somewhere so having him as a backup is a steal.

    Wouldn't be the dumbest thing to do given that if a guy like Cam or Dak gets lost for the season they'd do a trade like Bradford for him. That or they're just planning on Russel dying behind that Oline.

    Maclin's going to be a steal for a team that can get the ball downfield to him.

    apparently seahawks came out with some sorry excuse as to why they havent signed kaep, something about him being starting material but they already have a starter so they dont want to sign him...yea ok.

    The Chiefs cut Macklin. Probably the most confusing roster cut since Josh Sitton.
  • SaitsuSaitsu Tranquilo...ASSENAYO! Joined: Posts: 34,090
    Cutting a man a week after his wedding. The Fatman probably took half the cake too.

    Don't worry Maclin...just come back home. We still love you.

    They gave him a shot and then they said no. Which is still more than most teams gave him. If I had to guess, he probably still wants starter money for being a bench warmer, and the team is just trying to not make that the reason publicly. But sorry, Kaep, the Hawks are not doing that Matt Flynn shit again.

    Yep. Last year he was a bit slowed due to injury but otherwise was Alex Smith's best and pretty much only WR. He isn't happy about the move.

    Chances are this is both about money, and to basically state their intention that Smith is done after this year...if not even sooner than that.
