^I would think that the Packers would have to be pretty desperate to sign Flynn...especially if he can't even beat out a practice squad and rookie undrafted QB to start for the Buffalo Bills!

 

I will say that I am proud of the Bills this year, despite their 3-6 record. If it wouldn't have been for some questionable play calling near the goal line, we would have (and should have) beat the Chiefs last week with a guy named Tuel starting as our QB. That 100 yard pick six was killer and was a play that should have never been called by the OC in that situation.

 

Other than the beating we got by Drew Brees the week before, Buffalo has hung tough with every team they have played so far. Our record could easily be 7-1 if we would have been able to not choke near the end of some of those tight games (Bengals, Browns, Jets, Patriots & Chiefs).

 

It will be interesting to see what the Bills do in the draft and through free agency next year. After 13 seasons of no playoffs, I do see an end to the playoff drought if we keep our current head coach (Marrone) and DC (Pettine) around.

I completely agree, but seeing as he has some (relatively successful) experience in their offense, it wouldn't be stupid to sign him as their back-up, and see what he has. Right now, Seneca Wallace (Talk about being beat out by Rookie QB's) is the only 'Healthy' QB on their roster. They need to make some sort of move now that we know what Rodgers' injury truly entails.

 

**Side Note, I am a die-hard JETS Fan, and have been completely blindsided at how good this team is this year. I expected 3-4 wins all season, and at the halfway mark we have 5??? How did that happen!

So…uhh…this Richie Icognito story is getting crazy. It's reminding me of the "code red" in "A Few Good Men." Now the team is at the point where everyone is trying to get their stories straight, since they know they all played a hand in it...

Yeah, this whole story is still kind of fishy to me. It is strange that all of his team mates and other veterans have come to Incognito's defense in this situation, I mean if the guy is that big of a jerk/bully/rascist/whatever you would think this would be the perfect opportunity to really villafy him, yet the opposite has happened. Even though his reputation is pretty bad with the rest of the league his teammates (other than Martin) do seem to really respect him.

I have no clue what to make of the situation as things keep changing so fast in the media that it's hard to keep up. Sure seems like a real cluster down in Miami though...what a circus.

 

I do know that both of these guys were cast-offs from the Bills offensive line and neither one were ummmm...very good. Looks like they did the right thing by getting rid of both of them. Although we have enough problems with our shitty hockey team getting a bad rap in the media for our goons throwing cheap shots to the head.

There's definitely something more to this story than we are seeing, but how much is going to come out in the near future? It could be a couple months or even a year before the whole story comes out. Sounds like both parties are equally accountable. Can't go along with the bullying one day and then flip your lid the next. I'm not advocating for bullying, but in an NFL Locker Room, the situation is quite a bit different.

I can't help but laugh at this most recent story, yeah it is very inappropriate, but it is kind of hilarious at the same time.

 

http://thebiglead.com/2013/11/07/richie-incognito-reportedly-harassed-woman-at-charity-golf-outing-used-golf-club-in-lewd-manner/

 

"The then 34-year-old volunteer told police that Incognito had been drinking, and when he was at the hole where she was working, he rubbed her privates with a golf club and knocked a pair of sunglasses off her head with it, according to the report.

“After that, he proceeded to lean up against her buttocks with his private parts as if dancing, saying ‘Let it rain! Let it rain!’” the report states. “He finally finished his inappropriate behavior by emptying bottled water in her face.”

 

Oh Richie, he's just a fun loving douche bag I guess haha .

^That actually seems like a good way to describe him. I don't think he actually sets out to be a douche, but he clearly doesn't realize where to draw the line between fun and "WTF are you doing?!?"

I almost feel like martin decided he doesn't want to play football anymore but wants to still get his pay so he is fabricating most of the stuff. Its such a weird story.

 

More important than any of that though for me I hope the bengals can win these next two weeks so we can essentially lock down the division. Injuries are plaguing us though.

The craziest part to me is in one of the articles I read, Tannehill said that he thought Incognito was Martin's best friend on the team.

 

That's the darkside of the "locker room culture." It probably did appear like they were best friends, since it sounds like he was basically pretending to take all the "jokes" as jokes, when it was actually upsetting him quite a bit. Offensive linemen are always supposed to be the tightest group on the team.

^ Lions beat a 3rd string QB who had no NFL experience. It was obviously asking too much to have the Packers defense step up.

 

My 49ers stunk up the place. Sure they only lost by 1 point but it just seemed worse than that. I've been a huge supporter of Kaepernick, not ready to throw in the towel yet but I'm starting to wonder if the 49ers chose the wrong guy.

As a Vikings fan, I'll gladly take Kaepernick off your hands if you want to get rid of him!

Kaepernick has the ability to win and lose a game on his own with his talent; Alex Smith just has the talent to not do anything to make you lose a game, but won't carry a team on his back either.
