    Pittsburg did well in the trade sequence. They ended up with roughly the same person (but who could run), giving up a 5th round but getting a 4th rounder and a few extra picks.

    The Chicago GM should be fired for getting so little for a trade like that. Fields may not be great, but he's much better than Pickett was. Whereas the Pittsburg GM should be taken to dinner by the players who Pittsburg gets to take from the bears.
    Pittsburgh loves to fleece the Bears. Chase Claypool waves at Poles.

    Going to be rough for Fields not facing the Lions twice a season. I swear we are the only team he looks good against.

    As fans, our priority is the team. As a player, the priority should be about themselves and getting money before the game destroys their bodies.

    I'm just saying he's unlikely to win a title.

    Lions extended Dan Campbell and Brad Holmes until 2027.

    Aaron Donald announces retirement.

    Vikings make some draft trades with Texans and now have 2 first round picks this year (11 and 23). Some speculation they will trade both away to try to move up for better option at QB. Though some good QBs should still be available at 11.

    And we should not fault them for that- this is their how they live. Having met performers that got hurt and their career is in jeopardy- the performers do need to think of their well being, too.
    Oh, I agree with you.

    It is about the money for many of these players, not the wins.

    I can't remember the player's name, but many years ago there was a player from Syracuse who was a Rhodes Scholar. He played a number of years in the NFL and eventually wrote a book.

    My wife read the book. And she said one of the things that really stuck out for her, was when this player said there are many, many players in the NFL who would rather not make the playoffs. The reasoning being, you don't get paid for the playoffs (unless you have a bonus structure which most players don't, and the meager amounts the league provides for advancing through the playoffs isn't worth it), and all you do is wear your body down (and risk career ending injury), which prevents you from getting the real income in the NFL -- your salary for the regular season. (I remember someone once listing out that Emmitt Smith played the equivalent of one whole season just in playoff games, and how much that might have cost him had he instead played an extra year of the regular season.)

    It is about the money for many of these players, not the wins.

    Brady didn't need the money - he had Buncheon Bucks. Even half her net worth might be more than he ever made in NFL salary.
    He should have taken more since she is in the market for a better trophy husband.

    Of course cousins should take the money he is offered. The problem are the teams who offer it to him. And then find out they can’t afford the players it takes to win. Let alone complain about how much players are paid. Maybe this is a move that will hobble KC when Mahomes is up for his next contract?

    If you only count the guarantees in Kirk Cousins' new contract, he's now made $3M less than Tom Brady in lifetime earnings.

    I know Brady took a lot of team-friendly deals, but that's just a ridiculous fact.
