    I think this may be the end for Bradford. He has pretty much lost all the cartilage in his knees. If he was bionic he would be an top tier qb.

    Lions just cut Abdullah and resigned Zenner!

    Also Packers cut Jermaine Bonehead after his ejection for an open hand strike against David Andrews of Pats!

    Watch Browns LB Jamie Collins giving it his all on this goal line play. No wonder blacks dominate defenses:

    Also in the Browns-Chiefs game, Cleveland LB Christian Kirksey left early on with a hamstring injury and was replaced by Tanner Vallejo, who had 6 tackles, 5 of them solo tackles.

    Adam Humphries is now on pace for just under 800 receiving yards. However he's been targeted more as the season has gone on and has averaged nearly 70 yards per game the past four games. If he can average 79 yards per game over the next eight he'll hit a thousand yards. His continued fine play on a team that has Mike Evans, Desean Jackson and Chris Godwin at receiver has been one of the best surprises so far of the 2018 season.

    Nice to see Z2K back in the league. Hopefully more than just a WSTD. Abdullah has been quite a mediocre player given chance after chance with Detroit.

    The Browns really miss Pro Bowler Joe Schobert. Their defense is playing poorly, some of it due to lack of effort. Schobert did his job and was good against the run and the pass. You wouldn't see him dogging it the way some Browns players are doing.

    This news, along with keeping the senate (hopefully) is sweet....

    Some more good news: The Kansas City Chiefs, who have been playing without both of their starting safeties all season, finally received some good news at the position. Daniel Sorensen, who injured his knee during training camp, was activated off injured reserve and could play as soon as Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals at Arrowhead Stadium. Sorensen tore the lateral meniscus and suffered damage to the MCL in his left knee during a special-teams drill at camp. He also broke his leg. Sorensen returned to practice two weeks ago.

    I noticed the Raiders signed two scrub retread D-linemen. Gruden is pretty clueless - especially at this juncture after seeing his team give up vs the 49ers. Jared Crick and Karl Klug would make that defense better and more accountable if he was actually looking for positive results.

    SF QB Nick Mullens is going to get a second start - it will be interesting to see how he performs the rest of the season - if he does well it will give us a bit of a relief from sideshow bob in Kansas City.


    Also the Bills signed the KR from the Broncos who cost them a game or two last year. He is 5'7 170 lbs - rather than focus at all about building a team and giving Josh Allen some decent talent to work with they are probably going to throw him back behind that garbage offensive line and throwing to trash receivers.

    I burnt a read with the Milwaukee paper's 10 article monthly limit to see what the scoop with Whitehead and his release was about. Honestly being released for one little scrape is ridiculous, but they did dress it up by saying he is being replaced with athletes with more upside, hah hah.

    As for Gruden and the Raiduhs, oh man that is like going to a BLM meeting as a Trump delegate. Its got to be about the money as I wrote above, are these people that dumb.

    Kirksey was placed on IR. According to media reports, Vallejo has the first shot at replacing him. If Joe Schobert can get over his hamstring injury the Browns will have two White starting LBs.

    Tip for ZZ use the same black camo the Rhodesian Selous Scouts used and buy a dreds wig, then when you take an after rehab picture the bois at BSPN will salivate over your upside.

    Wow Zenner is ripped beyond belief. Two a day workouts and a good diet have him ready to go. As fast as he
    was before he has to be even better now. The kid is going to explode if they give him the chance.

    Come on Detroit. Give this kid the rock and stand back and watch some magic happen!

    Well diva Dez Bryant’s return to the NFL was short lived. 2 days and he tears his Achilles. Womp womp.

    Yea - hard to feel bad for him.

    I did see Trey Quinn will be returning this week for the Redskins.

    Josh Allen is not yet ready to return, so Matt Barkley gets to be the next sacrificial lamb with no WRs or TEs to throw to and no support from a running game that features RBs who are regularly shoved to the ground by off balance affletes playing 2 hand touch. Hopefully, he can make it through the game unscathed, as the O-Line will have one less Sumo starting this week and may even be 3/5ths white at certain points in the game as it was last week. Wyatt Teller has replaced Vlad Ducasse as the starting LG and Jeremiah Sirles spelled Jordan Mills at RT last week for a couple of series. I hope Teller does well and Sirles gets a chance to permanently replace Mills. Josh Allen shold be ready after next week's BYE.

    I would love to see Barkley do well. The local Marxist Media Mavens have warmed up a bit to Barkley in the last few days after the Bills main beat reporter made them aware of the number of reps he was getting in practice this week. It was a rare welcome additon to their usual daily repertoire which has mainly consisted in these past 2 weeks of clamoring for the Bills to give Terrelle Pryor a shot at QB because of how "exciting" it would be.

    They were only pushing for that, of course when they would take short breaks from their daily mantra of heaping praise upon Helium Troll Mahomes and cursing the Bills for not taking this "sure-fire Hall of Famer" and instead trading the actual pick used to select it to Fat Bastard and the Chiefs.

    Dolphins LB Mike Hull was added to the active roster off of IR earlier this week, and is set to play a part on defense right away as well as ST's.

    The usual way Fat Bastard loses in the playoffs is he would rather lose a close game, then go for it and potentially get blown out. So he will punt when could go for it on 4th down or call for a run on third and inches instead of play action. Fat Bastard is an elite Marvin Lewis.....

    Bills cut Peterman. I thought he was going to be a solid QB.
