I heard a quote from Belichick when they signed Harrison.  It was something like:



Ha seems that way sometimes doesn't it?

Eagles secret weapon for the playoffs? Jones was a surefire first round pick before he ruptured his achilles in the NFL combine.

I was just about to ask if the Browns were going to win a game. Then they miss like 5 tackles on a kick return.

Kaizer looked awful, and their final offensive play was a missed easy catch.  Sigh.

I just want to thank Mitlen for James Harrison.  Couple of sacks and caused one fumble.

What are you talking about?  Kizer had a decent game for the first time like...ever.  You really need to stop drunk-posting.

The dropped pass to seal the loss (and 0-16 season) is the most Browns thing I've ever seen, though.

I loved it.  Everyone I was watching it with cracked up.  That was hysterical.  I did not think he was seriously trying to draw a penalty it was so late and obvious.   Is there a flopping penalty in the NFL?   Unsportsmanlike?  If yes, then BB will cut him.

BB undoubtedly taught him that. Two minutes in the sin bin would be fair.

Of the wild card round matches, I have a feeling Buffalo pulls off the upset.  Really looking forward to that Blake Bortles / Tyrod Taylor matchup.

For every time you think athletes are spoiled brats who only care about themselves and the almighty dollar just remember these Bills players jumping for joy because they get to go to the playoffs, good for them and that town :)

I saw it on youtube last night and had the same thought as you.     They were like kids.

John Gruden signs contract with Raiders 10yr/$100 million. Longest contract in NFL history. For a guy who hasn’t coached in 10 years.

I'm sure that will go swimmingly. I remember him as an above average, but not great coach. It seems like people talk about him like his a second Bill Walsh at this point. Maybe he has absorbed and learned a lot since he left Tampa, but as a redskins fan I've seen Joe Gibbs 2.0 and Shannahan's final act. Retreads, even super bowl winning retreads, don't always work out like you hope

He does know his Buffalo Wings, though...
