    You missed the "performance art" when he confronted his General Manager last week and threatened to assault him? And had to be dragged away by, of all people, Vontaze Burfict?

    How about today, when he "liked" a tweet that advocated for that same GM to be raped?
    I don’t pay much attn until the season starts. and usually ignore the drama. But this guy sounds like a piece of work and ignoring that stuff will be tough until the suspension.

    Joe Flacco 6-5; surprisingly, same % as Brady.
    That is likely includes years he won Super Bowl. Brady is 12-10 in playoffs in years he didn’t win the Super Bowl. He is 30-12 overall.
    It does not. He’s 10-5 overall; subtract the 4 games from his Super Bowl year, and he’s 6-5. And he’s never lost a first round game.

    So that takes the list up to three, I think.

    I wouldn’t say that. I’m all for Brown not starting a game with the Pats without compensation to the Raiders, at least in kind draft picks the Raiders spent.
    Let's say he refused to play and never signed with anyone, would Raiders be expected to get draft picks back?

    I guess I don't hate the Patriots enough to think this was collusion. I chalk it up to a combination of a human meltdown mixed with a loser franchise resulting in them incompetently losing another top player like they did last year with Mack and a winning franchise being competent in scavenging him.

    We’ll see if he ever plays for them. Lawsuit now accuses him of three incidents of rape:

    Innocent until proven guilty... after the Super Bowl.

    And why did this woman wait so long to file this? Didn’t she think of the Raiders and their draft picks?!

    Regardless, we’ll see how this turns out. Leaving evidence in the form of text messages is always the first dumb thing to do to cover up a crime.

    More importantly, the Brown drama worked out for OJ's fantasy game. https://twitter.com/TheRealOJ32/stat...93953574940672

    ESPN is reporting NE had no idea about the lawsuit. They are mortal!

    Well, Brown not only played for the Pats, he scored a touchdown for them. Not that they really needed his help...

    Patriot offense is a juggernaut. The only thing they are missing right now is a HoF running back, but they have a competent ground game.

    Cleveland taken off mass suicide watch for the moment. With one more certain win against the Dolphins, the Browns fans have something else to look forward to.

    Their next six games (Rams, Ravens, 49ers, Seahawks, Patriots, Broncos)... well maybe the Broncos won't be that good. That itself is followed by the Bills and Steelers. But with this stretch in the schedule, it just shows the level of delusion some Browns fans were suffering from when they thought they'd make the playoffs.
