    There was zero social media interaction, or really anything, for a Broncos-Colts game. How far the once-mighty have fallen.

    I wouldn't have minded him here as a backup. Mallett is super uninspiring, and though Kaepernick would have been better RGIII would have probably been an upgrade on Mallett as well.

    Apparently Jacksonville offered him a contract and he turned them down to go to New England. Which is weird because the Jags receiving corps suddenly looks elite (which part of that team doesn't look elite though). I guess he would realized he'd be the 4th WR there whereas in NE he probably slots in as the 3rd.

    Yeah Yelich is a cheap enough player for them to have be their face while they rebuild or whatever they're doing. It's crazy, had they signed some pitchers this offseason we'd be looking at them as legitimate contenders.

    Death, taxes, and the Patriots losing in Miami.

    Yeah Morris is a great example of a guy who got in because of compiling. If you compare his career totals to a lot of HOFers you wind up thinking he belongs in. But man, when you look at his averages it's just a big fat no. Trammell is the opposite. A guy who didn't get in initially because he lost out on his compiling years so his career totals didn't look as good as they should have. With the exception of Cal Ripken he was the best offensive SS of the 80s though, and with the exception of Ozzie and Ripken the best defensive SS of the 80s.

    I think of all possible backups to have Nick Foles is the best one you could have. He would have been a starter on a number of cellar dwellers this year and while his game isn't as great as Wentz's with all the talent around him he still should get stuff done. He was extremely bad that year in St. Louis but that might be due to Jeff Fisher sucking all things good away from the players he coaches. Basically I'm not ruling the Eagles out this year. NFC has a ton of depth so this probably means they don't make it out of that conference, but I don't think they're gonna lose out the rest of the year with Foles. I knew Ravens were just teasing me last night. Ben to Brown is just an incredible combination and with no Jimmy Smith to play tight on Brown there was no chance we had of stopping him. That said Humphrey did play extremely well last night, and helped force Ben to make so many short dink-and-dunk passes. Ravens also neutralized the running game pretty early. Just nothing you can do though, Brown is too good and if he catches in the open field he's gonna make people miss. I feel pretty good about this Ravens team should they make the playoffs though, a lot improves every week. With Wentz out for the season I think Antonio Brown has to be the MVP pick. The voters would probably want to give it to Ben instead but Ben's the QB he is because has a once-in-a-generation player as number 1 WR.

    Eagles are worried Wentz has a torn ACL.

    Whereas Trammell I think wound up getting lost in the shuffle of a great generation of shortstops, people talk about Morris like was one of the greats of the 80s when he really wasn't close to that at all.

    I am very meh on Jack Morris but Trammell not going in initially was a joke so I'm glad that wrong was made right. He was robbed of MVP in '87, and an injury-plagued 30's from having much closer to 3000 hits. His most comparable players were all Hall of Famers as well. Morris had plenty of shots on the ballot and didn't get in for the right reasons, putting him in now just feels a little odd. Much better pitchers who aren't in the Hall.

    The NFL finally has a new superstar QB in Carson Wentz aaaaaaand he's hurt.

    That Kizer INT has to be the worst of this season.

    Yeah I would say Cubs are now the favorites to sign Harper. He and Bryant are best buds, they have a Schwarber-sized hole in the OF, etc.

    That was the most Newcastle match in the history of Newcastle.

    Ah, okay. Sirens always go off when someone is hired almost immediately.
