    It’s worse than the Anthony Davis/Paul George trade demands of the NBA because in both cases those franchises were able to get a ton of assets in return for being strong armed.

    The Steelers may be playing the Patriots tonight but they are no more a rivalry than Steelers/Raiders. Neither team plays in their division. Just saying. I get trading him to a bad Oakland team instead of a team like the Patriots.

    I don't think he had some master plan to throw away $30mil to get $9mil. I think he's just toxic.

    Of course the Patriots signed him. And my friends who are Patriot fans wonder why people hate that team.

    Not surprising. Most of the Pats fans I've met are White Victimhood, personified. They'd be much easier to deal with if they would just embrace the team's WWE-style heel turn without wanting everyone to like them.

    If the Patriots got word to him they’d sign him should he manage his way out of Oakland, then you have collusion/fraud. If there’s a smoking gun, the NFL would have to act, but yeah, good luck with that.

    Detroit went up 24-6 at Arizona with 14:47 left. Arizona tied it at 24 with 0:43 left, and both teams made field goals in overtime. In a play that started with 10 seconds left in overtime, Stafford threw a ball through the hands of an Arizona player who should have intercepted it, and Arizona would have been in field goal range if he caught it. This is the second consecutive Week 1 with a tie after Pittsburgh and Cleveland last year. In the 46 years from 1972 through 2017, there were no ties in Week 1.

    Baltimore won 59-10 at Miami, which was the first 59-10 score in NFL history.

    The decision to shorten OT to 10 minutes has led to more and more tie games. WTG NFL.

    It definitely wasn’t a “master” plan, but it clearly became a real plan at some point. Considering he literally filmed gloating videos documenting it all as it happened. He hasn’t been too toxic when it comes to the patriots, they get basically a free shot whereas it cost the raiders and Steelers assets

    The $9m vs $30m comparison doesn’t make that much sense, does it? $9m for one year vs $30m for multiple. Brown will almost certainly make more money in years to come to close that gap.

    Yeah, it's disturbing how Brown and the Patriots played that. It was the right move for the Raiders to get him off the team, but I wish they would have kept him on their roster out of spite.

    Makes you appreciate what Tomlin had to put up with.

    That game would've ended quickly if the old OT rule about field goals was still in effect too.

    I think most fans agree that OT shouldn't end on a coin toss and with kickers nailing 55+ yarders it almost assures calling heads or tails will win you the game in OT. I think they should go even further and guarantee both teams get to posses the ball even if the first team scores a TD. Just make it a max 15 minute quarter.

    Yup. Seeing them get smashed in the face after running their mouths for the past month was great.

    Coin toss didn't necessarily guarantee a win.

    It's true that the team winning the coin toss tended to win OT, but the number of times that actually happened on the first possession (without the opponent's offense touching the ball) was somewhere around 25%.

    The NFL changed a rule to fix a scenario which didn't affect 3 out of 4 teams.

    I'm in the minority, but I didn't mind the old rule.

    The Bucs talked Bruce Arians out of retirement to once again be the Quarterback Whisperer, but I’m not sure he can fix stupid.
