Pretty sure that was about a century ago.

Mecole Hardman is not ready to take that job?

I could have seen a team overpaying for Watkins if he was let loose.

This might be an interesting dynamic. This year's Hard Knocks(if it happens) will feature both training camps of the Rams and Chargers.

Re: Official 2020 NFL Off-Season Thread

I've really enjoyed the NFL uploading full games to YouTube during this time. They finally uploaded the Chiefs vs. Rams game from 2018. I do enjoy the offensive fire power, but I'm even more thankful the Chiefs overhauled their defense and fired Bob Sutton. The secondary was so bad in this game.

The new season of Hard Knocks, if there's a season or training camp, will feature the LA Rams and Chargers.

Some people here probably aren't going to be happy with that. The Rams were just featured a few years ago

New Buccaneers Uniforms. No more funky numbers, otherwise no major changes as far as I can tell

Those new unis look like the ones they wore during the Sapp and Brooks era which still stupid and ugly.


They should go back to this.

A Brady Creamsicle would fly off the shelves and be the #1 selling jersey at NFLshop.com

Yuk they look like college unis and on the same level of crap as the Jets.

I wish Nike would stick with shoes and get out of the uniform business.

So Todd Gurley is being kind of a bitch and complained on Twitter that the Rams need to pay him now. Guess they missed a payment? This is not something you make public. Tell your agent to handle it.

Anyone listen to Brady on the Stern show? Nothing against Stern but I won't bother listening to it myself. Just wondering if there was anything worthwhile that came from it. The only thing I heard was he 'knew' before last year it was probably the end for him in New England. But that's not a lot of info from a couple hours with Stern.

I think it's a great interview. Listened to the first 45 minutes of it on my run this afternoon. Will listen to the remaining 1:15 later. He's pretty candid and actually has some personality. It's weird finally hearing him say something real and personal in an interview for the first time in 20 years. Kind of like finding out your dog can talk.

It was a great interview. He came across as very candid, dropped numerous profanities and actually came off as very likeable. I did not hate Brady or anything, but I certainly have more respect for him now than I did before the interview.

Felger and Mazz (Boston Sports Hub) are obsessed with Tom Brady and for 4 straight hours that's all they talked about yesterday(Stern's interview).

They are the Patriots flagship radio station and they(Patriots) can't be too pleased that they won't talk about the present team but constantly have their noses up an ex-Patriots ass.

I am waiting for a Tom Brady interview in which Tom Brady's poop schedule for the current month is discussed.

People have all sorts of questionable friends. I don't judge people solely on who they associate with.

If all I know about a person is that he likes to hang out with Neo-nazis or KKK members, then I can pretty much judge the guy as being an asshole.

Rams trading Brandin Cooks and a 4th round pick to the Texans for a 2020 second round pick.

I guess the Texans now have their Hopkins replacement.

Shame Cooks is going and especially after he re-signed long-term.

Cooks was traded twice for first-rounders and now gets a low 2 with giving up a 4. Thatís what a poor season, a large contract, and concussion issues will do for your market.

I havenít watched Cooks that much, but statistically he mixes huge games with down ones instead of producing consistently like the top guys.
