  1. This has to have been the worst season for quality football in a while. I get that injuries and COVID happened, but a lot of these guys have no business being on an NFL field.

  2. This isn’t funny anymore. The defense should sue for divorce, claiming nonsupport and cruel and inhuman punishment.The settlement should be that the D get to play a real game against the O so the D can run up their stats and all members would make the Pro Bowl.
