No excuses.

I don't care if it's mental illness or drug-induced, he tried to kill her by beating her. There's no rehabbing that.

I'd be fine if he fried, but NO WAY should he be allowed around other humans anymore. Regardless of the reason, he's a danger to anyone around him both by his size and his actions.

Some crimes like murder, rape, pedophilia/child molesting...there's no rehab once you cross that moral line. Just remove them from society, permanently is fine.

His career is over, as Wheeler announced on his Twitter that he's leaving football following his very public arrest after he decided to beat his girlfriend to a pulp. The 27-year-old essentially tried to kill his girlfriend (now ex) over the weekend, sending her to the hospital with a bloody and swollen face, among other injuries. Alleah, the victim, claimed Wheeler "thought I was dead on my bed and continued to eat dinner" before she got up and went to the bathroom when Wheeler replied, "Wow, you're still alive." This man needs help.[/quote]

Rumor:

Texans are hiring Ravens assistant HC/WR coach David Culley as their new HC.[/quote]


[url]https://www.rotoworld.com/football/nfl/player/10682/josh-mccown[/url]

And their backup QB as their QB coach!

[B]NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Texans are "targeting" Josh McCown and Lovie Smith as assistants.[/B]
The Texans were shredded for giving McCown a head-coaching interview over more qualified candidates, but all signs point to the former quarterback as being a future NFL coach. Being hired as a QBs coach or passing-game coordinator would be a reasonable start. Smith would bring a lot of experience to first-time head coach David Culley, and he's available after being fired by Illinois last December. The Texans have their offensive coordinator in Tim Kelly.




Plus Watson's trade request is OFFICIAL now.

[B]
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Deshaun Watson has requested to be traded from the Texans.[/B]
It's been long reported that Watson wants out of Houston, [COLOR="Red"][B]but this is the first time his request has been considered "official."[/B][/COLOR] Schefter adds that Watson actually hasnít spoken to new Texans general manager Nick Caserio nor executive Jack Easterby since the former's decision has already been made. With a no-trade clause baked into his deal, the 25-year-old will ultimately choose his own suitor on the market. One after another, Houston's dumbfounding decisions and cronyism in the front office transparently highlight an organization that has no direction or intention of winning in either the near future or long-term, resulting in this decision. Whomever lands Watson will merely take on a team-friendly $10.54 million cap hit in 2021 and have its franchise cornerstone locked up under center through the 2025 season.

Yeah I understand where you're coming from as an advocate of prison reform too. I think for most serious non-violent offenders an emphasis should be placed on rehab to lower the recidivism rate too.

But this wasn't just domestic violence, this was attempted murder. I don't have any sympathy for that, even if it was man on man I really don't have a problem locking the violent ones up. If you want to rehab him after he serves time that's fine, but I have a hard time thinking the punishment for attempted murder should be a mental health facility.

If he wasn't cognitive of what he was doing then he needs locking up in a secure facility, I would never suggest freedom.But sticking mentally ill people in gen pop only makes things worse all round. If he did know what he was doing then yes, its attempted murder and put him away.

Lovie Smith is back as DC in Houston, now why would Deshaun want to stay for this shit show. I thought Lovie was done years ago.

Rams and McVay basically admitted that the Goff contract was fucking terrible.

He is younger than Stafford, drafted just as high, and was traded for Stafford and a cajillion picks.

I kinda feel bad for Jared Goff, man came back from a broken thumb to play in the playoffs a week later and he gets discarded like this. I think McVay and co. could use a lesson in how to talk to players if they're on the block.

Whats the chance the Lions try and flip Goff for a 3rd or so?

Ability to "extend the play" seems to be heavily valued for modern QBs and I dont think Goff checks that box.

I didnt watch much of the Rams but he looked good against us, 3 td drives in the 1st quarter. I didnt watch his games down the stretch where Wolford became relevant.

I like the idea of keeping both our 3rds ... but wouldnt Goff (71.4 pff grade, almost 4k yards in 15 games, 67% completion %, 7.2 pass yard avg) be an immediate upgrade for us?

Cap hit is 27M in 2021, then 25M per year after that through 2024.

id put Goff in consideration. He is better than what we currently have and seems decent enough at presnap read, make quick decisions post snap.

Not a fan of Goff at all especially for the price tag. I think he will struggle to match the numbers he put up with the Rams now that he won't have McVay in his ear.

Lions have said they want Goff and look forward to having him.

If the Lions didn't want Goff, they'd have taken Carolina's offer, which included pick #1.8, over the Rams' offer.
