  1. Which means he would’ve already broken the record for fastest to 11k had he not gotten hurt in ‘13.
  2. My first favorite player was Walter Payton. My first favorite Falcon was Gerald Riggs, but it was guys like Deion & Rison who made me fully become a Falcon fan.
  3. Oliver is a guy they spent a 2nd round pick on. He had a late 1st round grade by several experts heading into that draft. He’s made just ONE start at CB, and that was in the first game of the season when things haven’t totally gelled yet, w/ both safeties getting back to speed after missing basically all of last season, and against what some consider to be one of the best WR duos in the entire NFL. I have a very, very, very hard time seeing TD & DQ giving up on Oliver so soon like so many here are already doing. Considering they also drafted 2 CBs this offseason and have Kazee coming off a promising season, I highly doubt they’d make a trade for Fitzpatrick.
  4. Amen. Used to never miss a game & would carry anger w/ me for a day or two after they lost. Then something clicked in my mid to late 30’s where I just felt silly letting something I have absolutely zero control over occupy so much real estate in my brain. Obviously I would love to see them win big... after all I’ve invested decades of support into this team... but if they suck, I’m happy to find more productive ways to spend my time & energy.
  5. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/09/10/sports/football/antonio-brown-sexual-asssault-patriots.html Lawsuit Accuses Antonio Brown of Rape The Patriots receiver is accused of three incidents of sexual assault, in 2017 and 2018, against a woman who attended college with him. New England Patriots receiver Antonio Brown has been accused of raping his former trainer, according to a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday in the Southern District of Florida. The lawsuit says that Brown — in three separate incidents, two in June 2017 and another in May 2018 — sexually assaulted a woman named Britney Taylor, a gymnast whom he met while they were attending Central Michigan together and whom he later hired as a trainer. “Mr. Brown denies each and every allegation in the lawsuit,” said a statement from Darren Heitner, a lawyer representing Brown. “He will pursue all legal remedies to not only clear his name but to also protect other professional athletes against false accusations.” According to the lawsuit, Brown sexually assaulted Taylor twice during training sessions in June 2017. First, he exposed himself and kissed her without her permission, the lawsuit says. Later that month, the lawsuit says, while she was watching a television program at his home, Brown started masturbating behind her and ejaculated on her back. Brown bragged about the incident in profane text messages that are copied in the lawsuit. Taylor ended her working relationship with Brown, the lawsuit says, but several months later, when he contacted her to apologize, she relented. She was, according to the lawsuit, “swayed by his assurance that he would cease any sexual advances.” Then, the lawsuit says, on May 20, 2018, Brown forced her onto a bed, pushed her face into the mattress and “forcibly” raped her. She tried to resist him, screaming and repeatedly shouting “no” and “stop,” the lawsuit says, but Brown refused and penetrated her. “As a rape victim of Antonio Brown, deciding to speak out has been an incredibly difficult decision,” Taylor said in a statement released by her lawyer. “I have found strength in my faith, my family, and from the accounts of other survivors of sexual assault.” In the statement, Taylor said she would cooperate with the N.F.L. in an investigation. It was not clear whether Taylor reported her accusations to the police. Brown, 31, one of the most productive wide receivers in the N.F.L., became a Patriot on Monday after a series of conflicts prompted the Oakland Raiders to release him last week. The teams could not immediately be reached for comment.
  6. Breaking news Antonio Brown has been accused of rape and sexual assault stemming from three different incidents in 2017 and 2018. A lawsuit from Brown's former trainer, Britney Taylor, claims Brown "sexually assaulted Taylor twice during training sessions in June 2017" and "forcibly raped her" in March 2018 before bragging about it in "profane text messages that are copied in the lawsuit." It's unclear if she's reported any of the three incidents to the police, but she has stated that she'd cooperate with any NFL investigations. Brown and his legal team have denied any wrongdoings and "will pursue all legal remedies to not only clear his name, but to also protect other professional athletes against false accusations." This story will certainly be continued. SOURCE: New York Times Sep 10, 2019, 8:48 PM ET
  7. Yeah, that's immediately where my mind went, too.
  8. While TD & DQ may have had every intention to draft like they did, you never know how the draft is gonna unfold until it actually happens. With that in mind I think it's important to remember Brown was brought in prior to the draft... which would seem to indicate they were ok with the possibility of him being the starter if they weren't able to draft a starting calibre guard.
  9. With short memories apparently. Remind me again... How many Super Bowls did the Pats win the last time they figured out a way to get a talented but disgruntled WR from the Raiders?
  10. LOL at everybody prematurely crapping their pants over this & ready to just hand the Lombardi to the Pats before they've even played a game.
  11. Those teams are all already most likely looking at dismal seasons.
  12. I agree 100%. I was just thinking about how no team with a true #1 WR already (or a QB who is the unquestioned leader) is going to bother w/ AB & his baggage. So his options are going to likely be very limited if he's dead set on making demands about what he will or won't do & how much he has to get paid. Unless he's willing to check his ego & basically play on a low guarantee/prove-it deal, his only options will be w/ a bad team who's willing to basically rent him for a year.
  13. Teams like the Colts, Dolphins, Bills, and Titans have the cap room to give him a fully guaranteed $20m/1yr deal & eat it if things once again don't pan out.
  14. When Kenny Golliday was hurt last year, Powell got to start in a week 17 game against Green Bay. He had 6 receptions for 103 yards. He also had a 67 yard kick return for Detroit a few weeks ago.
  15. Yeah, that's pretty much my thoughts on the situation, too.
