    Tough one. They traded him but I’m sure at that point Jimmy G wanted to start his career. Brady was the MVP the following year, wNt to two SBs in a row winning one.... some teams would kill for that.

    Personally, I'd like to see him stay in NE - I'm a big fan of players playing an entire career, particularly a brilliant career, with one team - hated Montana moving on and Favre, and others in other sports. Retire with the team your career is synonymous with.
    No one knows how to look good in meaningless games quite like Rivers.

    Jimmy would be struggling as bad as Brady. Brady's footwork and arm are still very good.

    No "O" Line.

    No quick recievers.

    Jimmy might extend a few plays with younger legs.

    Before the KC v Pats game CBS reported KC's equipment mistakenly got sent to NJ instead of NE, and only arrived at the stadium 1 hour before the game. If it didn't arrive KC would have had to forfeit the game..

    1 of the announcers asked how something like that could happen. Then they showed a picture of Belichick in a 'mustache' as a disguise.. LOL..

    I try not to hate on Rivers, but my gripe about him has always been that he is indeed a stat compiler who never wins a damned thing, an older Matt Ryan. But, at least MR went to a SB and almost won.

    Re: Nfl 2019

    Heard it said this morning, by some NFL talking head, that there are only five legitimate contenders for the Super Bowl this year - in the AFC, the Ravens and the Chiefs and in the NFC, the 49ers, the Saints and the Seahawks.

    Personally this feels a whole lot like one of those years where a surprise team gets on a roll at the right time and where a strong defense can shut down a flashy offense in a tight, nervous, close game. For that reason, I'm feeling hopeful that my Steelers might be one of those surprise teams. Looking at their record this year, they've had what I'd call a bad lose only twice - opening game beatdown by the Cheatriots and the Cleveland loss three weeks ago. Other than those two loses, the Steelers lost by 3 to the Ravens, in overtime, lost by 2 to the Seahawks in a game they led, and lost by 4 in SF against the 49ers in a game in which Rudolph started for the first time and the Steelers's defense had 5 takeaways from the 49ers offense. Three tight games against three of the supposed five legitimate teams.

    Of those five "legitimate" teams, I see only the Ravens as truly legitimate at this stage of the season and the likely AFC representative in the Super Bowl. But the Steelers and Ravens always, no matter what the various talent levels, play close, hard fought games that are seldom decided by more than a couple of points. On any fluky Sunday, either team can get that win, if they meet up in the playoffs.

    Titans are playing well now, tied with the Steelers, but they have three tough games to close out the season finishing against the Texans twice and the Saints. Steelers also have some tough games to close it out facing the Bills at home this week and then the Ravens in Baltimore last game of the season. Steelers have a super record against the Bills, winning 10 of the last 11 and 7 straight in Pittsburgh. If they can't beat the Bills, they don't deserve to be in the playoffs. But if they do beat the Bills, they set themselves up perfectly.

    Considering the way the season started for my Steelers, it's been pretty entertaining and pleasantly surprising.

    Packers are always a possibility. What are they now? Ah, 10-3.

    Poor saints.

    the optics suck...but this WASNT pass interference. It WAS holding on the return team...BUT...holding on the return team isnt a challenge-able offense...its just a missed call.

    Saints fans must feel snake bit though.
