Andrew Luck updates:
The Colts are letting him keep his bonus money from the last contract signing.
It amounts to $16.8 million, since he had three years left on the five-year extension he signed in 2016.
There are rumours that Jim Irsay has known for a (little) while
Melvin Gordon has told the Chargers he's not showing up to camp without a new contract.
In a "pay me or trade me" scenario, he's saying that he wants to be paid what he deserves, or wants to be traded to a team that will pay him what
Antonio Brown issued a(n empty) trade threat in response to criticism of Sunday's performance.
A former Steelers PR rep, Ryan Scarpino, who worked for the Steelers from 2010-17, tweeted his thoughts, and I guess Brown still follows him and got a little touchy someone went after the king.
Hi all. After a welcome three-day holiday weekend away from the #content mines, I'm ready to return you to the cromulence of my banality. I golfed & drank on Saturday & saw Deadpool 2 & drank on Monday; in betwixt, I soberly crammed in family time with the extendeds. Thanks
Or, "The Reasonableness of the Situation".
Honestly, after how the games turned out, I was expecting far more vitriol than I found.
The Jags were first up

The four Divisional Round games gave us plenty to chew on.

Titans fans, however, knew what to expect.
Honestly, after watching the games this weekend, I really wanted to do the Chargers or the Seahawks. But the Dirt Clippers did themselves with the move to LA, and they both deserve their pain & are all-but-dead to this site, so I don't even want to cover their misery. The
As you've gleaned, I've been away this week. The doctors saw fit to ram another scope up my backside & remove the polyps they found. So, I'm gingerly recuperating. But don't worry - this isn't a "Boots On The Ground" post (because, eww). But there was one match last weekend

Normally, I wouldn't touch a 4-2 team for this feature. After all, I prefer to look into the morass of human misery & mine the painful-est rocks. But nothing was more painful on a fan base last weekend than this:
AND THUS THE HAWT TAEKS WERE BORN!
It started so innocently that
Of all the 1-2 teams I could choose, this week seemed fairly obvious to me.
There are four teams at 1-2 that didn't expect to be here at this point, the Saints, Cardinals, Seahawks and Colts.
The Saints would be fun to look at; "Who Dat?" nation is always ripe, and
Anthemgate update: (Anthemgazi? 9-11them?)
Roger Goodell told latte foam inhaler Peter King he is "proud" of the League's response to Donald Trump's "divisive words".
“Aren’t you bothered that the president might be on a crusade against your league?” I asked.“No,” Goodell said. “We live in an imperfect society.
