  1. “This review of the Packers’ 2018 season calls TE Jimmy Graham “an enormous disappointment.”

    I believe signing big $$$ free agents is as big a risk as not signing them. At worst, they do not contribute, and it can impede the development of young talent.

  2. >>Someone who watched Sunday’s game with Ray Lewis says that Lewis wanted the Ravens to bench Lamar Jackson for Joe Flacco.

    You mean when Lamar was averaging a below 50% completion rate with 2 yards per attempt? Yeah, so was I. In garbage time the Ravens all of a sudden sprang back.
    What if Flacco had started the game? Maybe it would have been much closer all along.
    Maybe its just the Charger defense, but Jackson looked bad.
    He needs to improve A LOT as a passer and to stop fumbling.
    Fumble recoveries are random. Just because you are lucky one year and recover 75% of your fumbles doesn’t mean you will always be so lucky. If the Chargers had recovered one more of those fumbles, then its a comfortable win for them.

  3. Give the Jets credit.Everytime they miss out (a lot), they have a story out there from Manish Mehta to fix it all up. Khalil Mack trade “Jets offered more than Bears” Cliff Kingsbury: “We just wanted to get a brain dump we knew we weren’t getting him”.
    It never has anything to do with that Maccagnan is terrible and that after coaches interview there they realize this and say thanks but no thanks. Darnold, Adams and cap space aren’t enough. PLus the Jets are telling candidates they have to keep the majority of the existing staff because they don’t want to eat salary.

    Manish Mehta probably gets paid a lot more by the Jets more than he does by the Daily News.
