    I can see how he wouldn't want to be part of a circus, this wasn't the way to go about it though. Even the Roots TV shirt seems unnecessary.

    He had to do something as the NFL had set him up to fail. I thought he got it right and told his story with his supporters rather than the NFL telling him what to say and do. The whole waiver signing is very dodgy.

    The BBC Sport reporting of this story is disgraceful.

    The bit that doesn't sit comfortably with me is that 25 teams made the effort, 19 of those couldn't or wouldn't go to the revised venue with an hours notice. I didn't think he'd get a team out of this anyway, but that's not done a lot to ingratiate himself.

    The guy the Eagles sent who did make it is the number 2 behind the GM and number 1 in talent evaluation so suggests serious interest. They will need a new backup QB next year and he'll suit that, be interesting to see if that kind opportunity is one he'd go for with the pay which that will attract

    This week is part of the continuing saga that reaffirms every Sunday that the Redskins are really REALLY fucking shite.

    Ah - I yearn for a Riggins, for a Theismann...

    Redskins - No TDs from anyone in 3 and a half games. Jesus wept. Even the Jets and Dolphins get a couple now and then.

    And when the Jets are burning you, you know you are shit.

    Very naughty helmet to helmet challenge in the Lions - Cowboys game. The Cowboy was already in the endzone as well. Should be an ejection.

    I cannot believe how fucking bad we are. We make Stoke of the holocaust season look like Real Madrid.

    Lamar Jackson is on fire literally, surely MVP this year

    I agree, that argument is long gone and there's still a long way to go. I just think if they keep going at the same pace the existing superstar rather than up and coming one will get the nod

    Wilson isn't even close IMO. He's put up good numbers but Lamar is exceptional.

    Mccaffrey really should be in the top 3 with Lamar and Russ.

    Rodgers is a joke. He was terrible first half of the season.

    I’d be annoyed as a Ravens fan if we don’t make the championship game with the current form

    Ravens will be in the Superbowl. No one yet has figured out how to stop their rushing attack and it gives Jackson the chance to throw all day. They look unstoppable right now.

    Helps when Ingram and Edwards are in full beast mode. That's some score from Ingram today.

    The defensive is having a blinding season as well. Flacco’s injury last season has turned into an absolute blessing than the original curse

    Only thing that must be a worry with Lamar Jackson is his longevity, QB's that take off and run has much has him don't tend to last very long.

    It's definitely a risk. Though he seems to bounce off and through tackles.

    Maybe they'll reign him in a bit as he goes on.

    You watch games like the Eagles, New England game last night and think, could Jackson do it against defences playing that well? Then you remember he put 37 on the Partiots a couple of weeks ago.

    I still think Baltimore need the number 1 seed to make the Superbowl and I can't see where the Patriots lose a game to give it them with their 3 tough match ups all being at home. Just can't see them dropping the Championship game in Foxborough

    Personally the play offs will show whether Lamar has actually grown as it was there last season where he fell to bits.

    He absolutely ripped the Patriots to bits when we played them. So we’ll see

    Lamar is still young and most great QB adjust there style over time

    Count me as a convert. I thought the Texans, after a bye week and with a good rush defence, would be able to slow the Ravens right down, but that game was an embarrassment. Ravens were bigger, faster, stronger, and had the ability to always fall forwards. But good as Jackson and the offence were, it was the defence that won the game. A couple of bad officiating calls (and they were really bad) made no difference.

    That first non-pass interference call was a big one in hindsight.

    It was an absolutely awful non-call. But there is no guarantee the Texans would have scored, or that it would have made any difference to the result.

    Also there was a missed illegal block (I think) for the 3rd touchdown. Commentators were surprised that none of the refs saw it.

    That Seattle touchdown was fucking nuts!! Brilliant play.

    Tampa touchdown was rather damn good as well. Eye of a needle.

    Redskins winning? This is not normal. I can only assume Detroit are bobbins.
