Finally won a game! Picking up Adrian Peterson on the waiver wire the day of his trade to Arizona definitely worked out in my favour, especially with OBJ out for the season.

I may be wrong and I know I am likely alone on this but i think some teams that are banking on getting a franchise QB in the draft to turn their fortunes around are going to be sorely disappointed with what they find.

Agree. I'm not necessarily a college expert like some people, but I've seen most of the hyped QBs play at least a quarter so far this season and non of them have really jumped out to me as potential NFL franchise-making material. There's a few guys who are hyped up beyond belief but that's the way it always is nowadays it seems

Horrific injury for Zach Miller of the Bears yesterday.
Not only did he break his leg, but he also severed a major artery.
Has had surgery to save his leg and things looking positive for him

What a COLOSSAL fuck up by the Pats. Holy christ. Could have had good first round picks straight up, or a package including firsts around draft time last year. Now they traded Garrapollo for a 2nd rounder. Tom Brady is 40. What are they doing?

Well I am delighted by the trade, Finally a proper quarterback to lead us following the current shambles.

Only slight issue is he now needs the protection which hopefully will be addressed in the draft.

:ROFLMAO: Miami is the Scottish football of the NFL - good in the past but now their incompetence is their most entertaining aspect. A very late 4th round pick for Ajayi is a terrible deal.
Awful deal. Insanely bad.

There's been 3 trades so far in the last 2 days
Ajayi for a 4th
Garrapollo for a 2nd
Duane Brown for Jeremy Lane, a 5th and next years 2nd

Interesting to see if anything else happens today

He does have a Ledley King knee (maybe both) so maybe they think he won't last much longer. Only explanation I can think of.

Don't worry. Brian Hoyer is visiting the Patriots this morning. QB of the future.
