That's hard to tell. He was OK in his one season at Miami. Just not worth the contract they paid. It's clear he goes best in the Belichick system. It's now no Chargers defensive coaching unit to get that out of him now.

Seahawks will travel an NFL-high 29,466 miles this season and change time zones 34 times.

The Steelers will travel an NFL-low 6,442 miles this season — and won't even leave the Eastern time zone all season.

Reminds me of Canberra vs Penrith during covid

At least the Steelers are leaving their city. Penrith travelled a lot less than that.

Been long mooted. Giants very tight on cap and he frees up around $10m even if they have to eat half his contract. He simply wasn't worth the money they were paying even if he's a very decent CB.

Ooooph! Tough draw for Dem Boyz.

A pair of home games, but not exactly easy...
Back to back season openers vs the Buccs. Then they get the SB runners up in the Bengals.

Then to the easy beats in the Div in NY.

Back home vs the Commies. If we are more than 500 after 4, we are laughing. Less... oh dear!

Then 2 away, at Vegas vs SB Champs Rams, then @ Pheagles in an early Div deciding game.

We return home for 2 more, vs Lions and Bears. Before heading into the BYE. Right in the middle of the yr and hopefully looking at a +500 record.

Tough pair of road trips, @ Lambo and Minnesota.

Backing up 4 days later, at home, on Thanksgiving vs G-Men. The G-Men are the 1st of 3 home games, with the Colts and Texans also at home.

A trip to Jacksonville is next.

Xmas Eve, in Dallas, with the game that probably decides the Div vs Pheagles.

Then finish away to Tits and Commies.

I think we finish 10-7 or 9-8. I think that record will = 4th NFC seed (realistically its actually 6th seed, but Div winner upgrade). Div record will determine if its Cowboys or Pheagles IMO.

Thats big news. There were rumours Broncos were looking to trade him not long ago. Bet they wish they had taken such action.

Packers and Pro-Bowl CB Jaire Alexander are finalizing a 4-year, $84 million contract extension, per source. Deal includes $31 million in 2022 - a DB record of $30 million in signing bonus. Alexander will receive $42.5M by March. John Thornton of @RocNationSports confirmed deal.

Jaire Alexander’s new deal averages $21 million per year, a new mark for DBs. It ties him to Green Bay through 2026 season. Alexader broke a bone in his shoulder in week four last year, and played only eight plays in playoffs. Packers still identified him as a core young player.

James Bradberry heading to Eagles on a 1 year deal. That's a decent gap filler till 2023 draft where they will no doubt address the defensive backfield. Surprisingly skipped that need in this year's draft.

Been sweating on this move for a few weeks
A lot of smoke that the eagles were waiting to punce once he was released.

Really needed another good starting corner... we've still got a gapping hole at safety... but there are similar spot fires about the ravens and eagles trading Chuck Clark (now expendable with Marcus Williams and Kyle Hamilton on deck) for Jalen Reagor (who the eagles obviously dont want but the ravens are in need of a speed receiver)... so ill be very eager to see if that goes anywhere

If the eagles can swing a trade for a good safety, like Chuck Clark... ill start feeling really bullish about them this year. Though i think the question marks over Hurts being able to run a real NFL passing game remains the big ? over the team. If he can, and they can get some help at safety, it's a pretty damn good team up and down the roster.
If he cant, they'll be dispatched pretty easily by the first good defence they face in the play offs (should they make it)

After playing more games for the Ravens than any other player in franchise history, punter Sam Koch announced his retirement Thursday after 16 NFL seasons. The 39-year-old Koch played in 256 games for the Ravens, more than Terrell Suggs (229) and Ray Lewis (228).

Only a punter, but quality

I just read that Suh has only missed 2 games (both in 2011 via suspension) since he was drafted, and the only defensive player to have played every game since 2012 - 161 of them.

Thats longevity mixed with crazy good health/fitness. Amazing stuff given the position.

We're at a dead period for the NFL calander... but there is some interesting things going on particularly in the QB rooms

The Lamar Jackson and Kyler Murray situations are looming to me as potential league shifting events... that DeShuan Watson deal and his pending suspension is also hanging over the league like a festering ****. You dont think Lamar, Kyler and the next crop saw that fully gtd deal Watson got and think to themselves "Why not me?"

also the Niners QB situaton, is Jimmy going to move? It's hard to fathom the Niners are going to sit Lance for another year given what they gave up to get him, at some point you kind of have to just play the guy and let the chips fall where they lie. I think before the season kicks off, we'll have Jimmy G and Baker Mayfield at new organisations. Seattle and Carolina being the key destinations imo

also, Eagles note, the Athletic NFL podcast recently did a non QB Most Valuable players draft... and Jordan Mailata got an honourable mention (Matt, ya boi Micah went 5th i think), which shows how really incredible his rise has been. Think this time next year, we'll be talking about Mailata as a top 5 NFL LT.

If Micah can be the same guy as last yr ill be happy. Better will be tough. Does look a genuine freak... and we are talking NFL freak, so that's special.

Mailata has done some amazing things to get this far. I hope he is a top 5 LT prospect. That would be huge

Dean Ritchie reporting Rams are going to play a game in Sydney in 2024, potentially against Cowboys. I expect it will be a preseason game. Logistics a bit tricky for a regular season game.

Yeah i've been waiting to see some details on it, ive been hoping for a miracle and maybe it's an actual real proper game as part of the international games they're doing but know in my heart its almost certainly a pre season game :lol:

But you can lock me in for that, regardless of what it is. I'll be definitely going to it :lol:

Only real way they could hold a regular season game is give both teams a Thursday night game prior and bye the week after. Would also have to be an October game or it will be getting too hot.
