Ajayi out for the year. Dropped him but couldn't get Smallwood. What a name.

I went 0-5 in FFB - I went back and looked, 4 of the 5 teams I played scored season high points the week they played me, the 5th scored his second highest the week we played. I have the 4th most total points for and most points against by over 60. I'm dead last. And the Hawks lost a close one. Crappy fake season, crappy real life season.

Had a good time at the Bengals/Dolphins game. Both DEF TDs were right in front of us. Couldn't believe how bad we looked the first half.

So, they really stopped the Saints game in the middle of the quarter to give Brees his yardage award? They couldn't wait till the end of the game or the half or the quarter?

Not sure how you can throw a flag for team celebration then immediately have an "NFL Celebration" right later

Its a major Milestone. I was happy to see him enjoy the achievement when it happened. Congrats to Brees!

Agreed, that was a little ridiculous. Then again, I am sure he thought it was a roughing the passer.

Major milestones happen all the time in football, they don't stop the game in the middle and do presentations

Eh, the eagles backfield is a mess. Basically RBBC, Smallwood, Clement, Sproles, all potentially involved.

Guys in my league bid decently for both smallwood and clement....I just chuckle

It will be all time until Brady plays for 4 more years....

I'm happy for Brees and all for giving the man his due, but I thought it was a little over the top to actually stop the game. If the game was close and the players were really in the moment, I'd think it was unfair to Was to have such a break in play like that. But you know, I suppose on MNF the NFL wanted to make a show of it.....

How'd you like the stadium? Saw the talent? Any fights? Any fights between the talent?

Of course they did, but the way they went about it was just dumb, especially as mentioned with the celebration flag and then stopping the game to celebrate... so hypocritical...

Wonder if Giants wanted Lamar Jackson had he slipped a few picks. Guess they didn't like the rest of the heap up top.

I'm a bit perplexed at Eli's deterioration. Like, other QBs of his generation are still going pretty good and heck, Brady -- albeit with cheatin' methods -- is still getting it done and he's old enough to be our Dads. So, what's going on with Manning #2...?

He has only been good when he has time. He isn't mobile and he isn't quick to throw. He also is very inconsistent.

So, he needs the NE wall that Brady has...as pretty much all NFL QBs not named Rodgers...

If Eli had that protection and that cheating, I'd say he'd have 10 Rings...that's because he can beat the Pats even with that protection around Brady and that cheatin'.

Well, at least the Giants have a RB stud. Looks very good. And with OBJ, they have the foundation there...

He may not have a starting job in November. They’re gonna want to know what their fourth round pick can do for next year.
