    The NFL is always better when Gronk is playing:

    Impending free agent TE Rob Gronkowski would like to re-sign with the Bucs in 2021. "Yeah, you gotta," Gronkowski said in an interview on NFL Network. "I feel like this team was built to win right now. ... I can definitely see this team also having a lot of talent come back and having another successful run next year, as well, with me." The takeaway isn't that Gronk wants to remain with the Bucs, but that he wants to play in 2021 at all. A player who is a year-to-year proposition at this stage of his career committing now is unusual. We would assume the feeling is mutual and that Gronk will be back after upping his 2020 play in the second half of the season.

    The newest rumor is that their is tension between McVay and Goff. I'd say it's got more to due with play calling then Goff's abilities. Looks like Jared is back on the chopping block for the sports media cucks.

    Tension huh. That's funny 44 wins together since 2017 should squash those "rumors".

    I'd be cautious about believing any rumor until it's proven. This seems like a divide-and-conquer tactic from whoever started it - attempting to not only get the DWFs to turn on Goff, but also to get the other side of sports fandom (people like us) to turn on McVay. If McVay did throw Goff under the bus I'd be the first to criticize him, but until we know for sure, I'm not jumping on any bandwagons.

    I figured he would be back for one more year. He plays great this season. We need another white qb to replace him and not Brissett

    The NFL announces that they will use a female referee in this year's Super Bowl. Sarah Thomas will become the first woman to officiate a Super Bowl.

    Wentz needs to get the anti-white Eagles to let him go to the Colts and get behind that snow plow O-line.

    Rivers and almost certainly Brees, two all-time greats. Big Ben and Tom Brady will likely be next, leaving just Aaron Rodgers from the Golden Age of (White) Quarterbacks we were privileged to watch over the past two decades.

    Getting to be the end of a Golden Era that is certain. I was just discussing with some co-workers today.. What if Rodgers wins another SB this season and surprises us all and goes out on top! Most thought he'd come back for a few more season's at least, but idk. Given recent trends I'd give him a slim chance of doing so.

    Anyways sorry for the ramble. Rivers will go down as an All Time Great QB and Trash Talker. He really did have a funky release too, but made it work. Probably won't be allowed to ever see a guy throw like that again. As we've discussed before, everything is so uniform in our society, even sports are getting that way. You are taught a certain way and that's that.

    I think Brees and Rivers would both be great added to a broadcast or pregame crew too if they ever chose to do so.

    Geez Brees was beat to hell! I knew he wasn't right a month ago when I was rallying to put Hill back in if Drew was that hurt. But him and Sean Payton must have discussed this will be his last hurrah, some of it makes sense now.

    Waiting for Crab Legs to be anointed Starter in 3... 2.. 1.

    They will both be missed as two of the best competitors and talented quarterbacks to ever play. Ironically, their careers were intertwined early on and now they are retiring at the same time.

    It’s also worth noting that both men are devout Christians, conservative and have large families. Brees has 4 children and Rivers has 9. I’d put them both in the HoF for furthering the White race. :campeon:

    Rivers was always known as a "taunter" yet never swore. More than taunting his verbalizing was a reflection of his passion for his trade. A truly good man and throwback, as is Drew Brees.

    Rivers was from the great QB class of 2004, the beginning year of Caste Football, along with Big Ben and Eli. Big Ben is the last survivor, barely hanging on but also with two Super Bowl wins, tied with Eli -- who unexpectedly knocked off the Patriots both times with near-miraculous plays, much to the chagrin of CFers. Rivers deserved better as far as the Super Bowl, but was a victim of substandard offensive lines and the seemingly yearly devastation of his receivers due to injury. I can remember seasons when he was throwing to nothing but scrubs, ala Carson Wentz in 2019, yet still put up prolific numbers. He was as elite as they come.

    Rivers is indeed a throwback. As described from a 2017 article:

    “Rivers lives as about as modestly as one can when his career earnings are bumping up against $200 million. His primary mode of transportation is a 2008 Ford F250. He wears cowboy boots – real ones, plain brown, nothing made of a swamp creature or rare bird. His dress shirts are Western cut and have shiny buttons.”

    He’s a perfectly tailored personality for CF, almost reminiscent of Jordy Nelson. I hope the board has fully appreciated his playing career!

    Its never made sense to me how River’s throwing motion was allowed but Tebow’s was not. Other than the fact that one of them was an athletic QB and the other was not.

    I would classify Rivers as a genius when it comes to quarterbacks; Tebow wasn't but still could have had a very good to great NFL career if treated fairly.

    There is a million videos of Allen but this one came up on my feed while watching one of my cattle vids and it mentioned "no offers." Not even ironically the WY offer it was claimed came because of a black assistant coach who at one time worked at Fresno St..

    He just needs a positive black Male Role Model to realize his potential.

    When a black first-rounder busts hard, he almost always keeps hanging around the league, like that person (who wasn't even invited) who keeps hanging around after the party's over, because the "mainstream" media talking heads with their pro-black bias keep saying, "oh, he was drafted in the first round, he must have potential, he must have dat upside." Meanwhile, on the very rare occasions when a white first-rounder busts, he's immediately dropped like a hot potato and blackballed from the league. Libtard double standard #867,459.

    They are just warming everybody up for first female President after Joe is told to take a hike.

    The PTB are just going to have to accept that Josh Allen ; Justin Herbert; Joe Burrow ; Trevor Lawrence & Zach Wilson are part of the new breed of QB's. They were so ready to phase out the Peyton Manning' &Tom Brady's of the world! NOT SO FAST!

    Brady vs. Rodgers is one for the ages!

    "He just needs a positive black Male Role Model to realize his potential."

    Role model is about the dumbest phrase ever. So all of life is a staged play and the new actors need an old actor they can parrot.
