I noticed that too.

I wonder if that's to put a damper on the resale market?

^Not bad for a bunch of flag-hating turncoats.
Well, if it wasn't for the kneeling I think they would have sold out in 5 minutes instead of 6.The impact continues to be dramatic.

I think the "kneeling " ended quite a while ago... each respective side has made their points and moved on...

In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

Watching our offense today is once again painful.

Having Cam Robinson out killed the offense today...Wells was repeatedly beaten off the edge and Bortles couldn't step into throws.  It's ok to have Wells as your LT against the Colts, but not against a good pass rushing team like Tennessee.

Cam being out definitely hurts the offense. Next week, Lee & Turns being back should help Bortles on the short and intermediate routes which will leave the longer routes for Westbrook & Cole without much blocking responsibilities.

Congrats to the Dolphins for winning their Superbowl.
Now, can they lay down for the Bills (twice)? I would love for the Bills to be the WC opponent for either the Pats or Jags.

There's one. heh heh heh. I guess the Dolphins had a  Super Bowl hangover.

and there's two! Thank you Dolphins!!!!And you broke McCoy too. Nice bonus.
I got my dream WC opponent.

Oh, and Miami, those Superbowl wins in the early 70's are still very impressive.

I told you about the 5 packs and 3 picks......I hope you listened to your brilliant Uncle Sanmarcomatt........

I did.  And thanks.

Tickets in my section are now starting at about $900 ea.  I paid $280 for both.

Excellent!

This morning, I read off some re-sales in our section and then glanced at my wife which resulted in a rather emphatic NO. ( I actually wasn't interested in selling either but it was pretty funny)

Looking back at the game, the biggest difference IMO was the running plays and running ability of Mariota vs Bortles.

Mariota was really effective and Blake was not.  They absolutely must run Blake more, on the read option and designed QB draws.

It slows down the rush and he almost always gets yards. Also would be nice to see him STEP UP into the pocket (to avoid pressure)  as opposed to backing up and getting sacked.  On several plays there was room to run had he done that.

Since I don't think week to week "momentum" exists, I was happy the Jags lost to get the Bills.

Thus, Mickens gets my game ball. Outstanding work.
