    In terms of being a pure passer I think Brees is better. Obviously Brady is the better overall player due to his success.

    Brees is good, even great. But I think most pundits will give the nod to Rogers.

    IMO Brees is the best pure passer in the game. He's like what prime Ricky Ray was in the CFL, except even better. Whereas Rodgers is more like a Reilly-type, who can get things done in a variety of different ways.

    The only better pure passer in the last 15 years has been Peyton Manning.

    Not sure what to think in Oakland. I guess at this point it doesn't matter what you do. The team sucks might as well build for the future.

    I wondered if Carr would be targeted by a team as he does somehow have the 2nd best completion rate, but with that much money left I don't see it.

    Not really, this is the best thing to happen to the Giants. They need a QB, badly, and I get that they couldn't pass up on Barkley in the last draft but now their focus going forward should be drafting a franchise QB or at least somebody who is better than the corpse formerly known as Eli Manning.

    As for my Lions, remember one name. Kerryon Johnson. I loved the pick at the time but even I didn't imagine he would be this good this season. He's the next LaVeon Bell, with a much better attitude.

    I mean I know that, it doesn't make that 1-6 start feel any better. I know the Eli still wants to play, I wonder if they continue their "success" if they'll move him.

    Seems like they are already having locker room issues. Has to be a matter of time before they try something else.

    Well losing will do that to a group, but you're probably correct.

    I think losing will do that to a group, but continuing to set themselves up for failure is really the issue.

    Beckham is a big personality and I don't like that he went public with comments, but the fact is Manning has been going downhill for a couple years now. Not having a viable backup is really on coaching and management.

    The real kicker is there is a lot of season left to make things even worse.

    Yeah that's my biggest concern, but it might get to that point where they just "go play" because there's not pressure because they're really done.

    Took in the KC vs Cincinnati game on Monday. Quite the stadium and experience that was! Too bad about the game I was hoping for a close hard fought game.

    Highly recommend anyone to check out Arrowhead stadium. Amazing experience!

    Did Arrowhead a few years ago. Got really messed up the night before at the Light and Power district place and barely made it for kickoff the next day. lol. Great times indeed.

    I've heard a lot of good things about it, but I also believe they designed the building to make it sound better as well. Doesn't hurt that they also have such a dynamic offense right now too

    Not a good couple days to be a coach in Cleveland. First Lue now Hue.

    I don't really know what they expect to be honest though. Both clubs don't exactly have the needed talent. The Browns have actually been in most games as well, but I guess easier to fire the coach than get rid of the no talent roster.

    All they need to do is run the offense properly and they would be above .500.

    David Njoku and Duke Johnson are barely used in their offense. Yet they are their best athletes.

    NFL going into a new era and all the old school donkey coaches are getting pushed out. (Oakland being the only exception).

    Didn't realize they turfed Haley too. That in itself could help.

    Doesn't really matter. Get the kick off quicker.
