Josh Rosen jerseys 60% off

I don't like all the rumors that have him going to the Pats. They're already bringing in Schiano. Now this guy? How much congeniality can one squad take?

Maybe they were too hasty with Albert Haynesworth. Why not give him a second chance?

What would it take to pry Burfict away from the Bengals?

Is Romanowski ambulatory?

Sizzling hot take of the day:

Josh Rosen is a good QB. What the Cardinals really need is a better offensive line, so they should draft NC State center Garrett Bradbury. That would probably allow them to trade down and get more picks/assets to further bolster their o-line.

Got a point there. A QB cannot win a game on his own, and the Cardinals have gaping holes across their offense. Evidence: The Patriots hardly missed a beat during Brady's suspensions / injuries, they just plugged in another QB and rolled along. The Eagles won a Superbowl with a QB that the entire league took a pass on; he wasn't a bad QB, he had just not had the opportunity to play on a good squad yet.

Really, the current Raiders and others could draft a QB cloned from the combined DNA of Joe Montana and Peyton Manning and he'd still look like a bust. Give Rosen a chance already.

If I'm the GM? I'll give him to you for Tom Brady's MAGA hat and a wad of chewed gum. Ball's in your court; if you really want a weak side 4-3 linebacker too slow to chase down a 260 lb tight end, with questionable tackling skills and a propensity for unsportsmanlike conduct penalties, I recommend you get to chewing post haste.

Word is Gruden's offering 2 firsts and both starting WR's for him ....

In terms of filling out an all-choir boy Pats roster, I don't want the skills, I just want the attitude.

Can you imagine Schiano trying to coach Burfict? Be just a matter of time before that went Latrell.

A few minutes ago, I glanced in passing at one of those "most hated NFL players" lists. I could not believe how many people who have worn a Patriots uniform at one time or another were on that list. How ever can that be?

Along with players who had a historic connection to the team. Like coked up Super Bowl gunslinger Jim McMahon, the haunter of John Hannah's dreams.
