Big Ben out for season, Drew Brees to miss 6 weeks


Patriot Killa

Zero surprises here. ... As QBs are hit less because of safety rules .. there is a belief that Father time is losing this battle. He is laughing at all the aging QBs that are more brittle and take longer to heal.

This is happening because older guys are getting hit by large men.

Breed, Rothlensburger, even Cam ... All older dudes.

I wouldn’t be surprised if roughing the passer calls get called even more now. It’s just the nature of reaction.

I know this will drive people crazy. But if this injury blitz on Qbs continues and starters keep going down they could change the rules on hitting Qbs. No hitting on a Qb at all. In other words partial touch football. They changed the rules on kickoffs. They're for the most part no fun anymore. 

Ben was untouched, Brees' injury was unfortunate contact and Sam was kissing whores.

 

Nothing to change.

(On a serious note....this might be his best chance...the Rooney's - creators of the Rooney rule- are about as progressive an ownership you're going to get in the NFL)

this azzclown is perfect for the steelers.

So 2019 two weeks in:

Andrew Luck retires before season

Alex Smith IR before start of season, probably retires

Drew Brees out 6 weeks

Sam Darnold out 6 weeks

Nick Foles out 8 weeks

Ben Roethlisberger  IR

Matt Simms IR

Nathan Peterman IR

Chad Henne IR

Drew Lock IR

Colt McCoy 8 weeks minimum

No wonder starters and back-ups get paid what they do!

Hmmm. Looks like the NFL rigged it up enough to make sure the Patriots back right in to another championship.

Between the injuries, the bad calls, the lack of soul etc. I dont know how people can take the NFL so seriously now.

It's really a souless product now tended to being a living simulation for fantasy players

I yearn for the soulful days of the NFL, when they played coked up, with 3 concussions, hung over, and with every intent to hurt opponents and take them out of the game.
