He'll probably get more playing time now that Brandon Graham is out for the season.

It is good to see him have success and it appear consistent. I can see a future warpath debate on should we have pursued Darnold more if he continues to play well.

max out some muscles, it seems you increase your injury chance of a tear or pop.
Muscles get bigger tendons aren't evolved to hold that force. Pop

Muscle elasticity. Some people have it, some people dont.

I was amazed at APs elasticity and flexibility. His knee bent so awkwardly on one play I thought for sure he was done for the year .. and he missed a series or two.

Durability I dont think is a trait you can measure but non-durability is. Certain players like Guice just dont have it. Body isnt made for NFL longevity.

I hope to hell that our coaching staff figures things out and takes advantage of our talent asap, but right now Carolina is clearly the better team and I believe it is because of coaching. Of course losing Horn and McCaffrey might be a steep hill to climb.
I think it is great that the Panthers are doing well, but if you are looking at just these three games, they've played lesser competition than we've had. The Giants are always ready to play against us, and both the Chargers and Buffalo are top tier playoff teams.


I'll be more impressed if they keep winning with all of the injuries they've had.

Also, Darnold look good, but there are still a few things that haunted him in NY that I still see in his game.

I watched the game v the 49ers and he definitely got on the field. Seems situational as it stands.

It's being said that he has far better OL protection than he had in NY, so he's not being pressured into the mistakes he made before. Time will tell, and I hope given his talent that these performances become consistent. But he could be one OL injury from being the NY version of Darnold again.

Cowboys’ RT La'el Collins was suspended by the NFL after trying to bribe the league's drug-test collector, sources told ESPN.

Just wow. Explains the 5 games, honestly it should be longer as it’s not just missing a test but circumvented the integrity of the testing program. Gotta think why isn’t this a longer suspension?

That’s ridiculous- it should be longer.

I heard it reported he was offered a compromise 2 game suspension but refused and chose to appeal. And lost. You can't fix stupid

Re: Around the NFL…Week 3

The Chargers are up two scores against the Chiefs. Why couldn't they play that way last week against the Cowpukes?

New Orleans Saints LB Demario Davis is having a monster game. His coverage skills are amazing.

Yet we are always told how important the integrity of the game is.
