    The question I have about your team is whether they will try to trade up with those two first round picks.

    As a Giants fan, I am very interested in seeing a high level of demand for the QBs and a compelling opportunity to trade down.

    I'm also ready for Season #101 in the National Football League.

    Let's see if my local team, the San Francisco 49ers, reach the Super Bowl again.

    From the article:
    As part of the deal now on the table, players would go from a 47% revenue share under the current deal to 48% share at 16 games, and then to a 48.5% share if they go to 17 games, shifting $5 billion of revenue to the players' side.
    Am I reading this right? If 1.5% swings $5 billion to the players, that means league revenues at $333 billion?!

    No, that's mean to be the aggregate shift over the life of a new 10-year agreement.

    I know for you it doesn't matter much since you live in NJ, but are Raiders fans in Oakland mostly staying as fans or jumping ship?

    If anything they trade down. I see them getting a WR at 12 Jeudy or Cee Dee lamb and at 19 get LB Murry or LB Queen. If simmions the linebacker drops to 12 then they grab him and then a second tier WR at 19. I really don't expect a QB in the first. Carr could be traded and possible they sign a vet for a couple of years. But I doubt it.

    I'm on Raider forum everyday and some are annoyed that the City couldn't get a deal, but most have expected the move. It's only a 45 minute flight from Oakland I'm told. The fans showed up for the games last season, so they support the team in general. And who wouldn't mind a weekend in Vegas in a great stadium.

    Unprecedented month continues. I'm not surprised, but still shocked if that makes sense.

    He should do an Ely and retire.

    I think he wants that last big contract before doing so, since he gave the Patriots discounts all those years.

    I think Giselle earns enough to take care of him in retirement.

    They both appear to have plenty to retire on. I'm just thinking that's probably the reason why he wanted to test Free Agency. It's likely the last football contract he will ever sign.

    It'll be even weirder seeing him in another uniform that it was to see Manning at a Bronco.

    It's related, but I think he also is rebelling against Belichek a bit, after years of taking lower contracts for the team.

    This almost never works out well for the QB (Manning being the rare exception).

    Good story outlining how this is a good fit for both sides.

    Brady prefers MRSA to all the other viruses, apparently.

    I was thinking Johnny Unitas with the Chargers, but that was before your time.
