I don't see any way he's not re-signed. He's still got at least another season in the tank and would probably come at a bargain. Maybe they draft a LT and move him to RT (where he started his career) and let him mentor the new guy. Late 1st round tackles tend to be a good value pick.
After reading those texts, I wouldn't be surprised if Martin is gay and this whole thing came from him not being comfortable with his homosexuality in front of his straight teammates. The sad truth is you can't be openly gay in the NFL. Maybe some of his teammates figured that out and that's where the bullying came from. Incognito was always talking about getting pussy and all the girls he was hanging out with, but Martin always kind of deflected that talk and never mentioned any of the girls he was seeing. There are a few times Martin talks about girls and the stripper picture, but who knows if that's just a cover up or he's just not as horny as Incognito.
If he quit football to truly embrace who he is, more power to him. But he didn't need to drag Incognito with him because from those text messages he never crossed the line. All just seemed like friendly banter and good-natured ribbing. Judging from the texts, I don't think Incognito came from a place of hate.
A blowout in the Superbowl is rare. The last one I can think of was 11 years ago - Bucs vs Raiders. I don't think anything needs to change because most of the time the Superbowl is a close game. I feel like Brady and the Patriots would have put up more of a fight though.
Gettleman already told everyone he's letting him walk. "There's isn't a team out there that hasn't let a big dog walk out the door. We are cap challenged"
Dude is straight stating the facts. What more evidence do you need? The team doesn't have a lot of cap space and it can't tie up what little they do have in one player. THAT'S WHAT THE OLD GM DID AND IT GOT HIM FIRED.
Probably Kiko Alonso or Tyrann Mathieu wins. Star had a good season but his stats don't look great on paper. Cam broke all sorts of records his rookie year and Luke led the league in tackles so therefore they won ROY. Star was just an awesome role player who did his job on one of the best defenses in the NFL. They don't give DROY for that but they should.
That's a pretty cool stat. I checked, and in the modern era there have been a lot of QBs to go with two different coaches--Montana, Elway, Aikman, Roethlisberger, Warner, and Morton. Manning will be the first to get there with three coaches.
Any team with Peyton Manning on it doesn't even really need an offensive coordinator so that really tells you why he's been there with three different head coaches. It has been noted that Manning routinely ignores the playcalls of his coaches and just calls whatever he wants.
How can any Panther fan really say they love Richard Sherman? If the Panthers had been in that game and it was Cam who threw the INT at the end, we would all be cursing his name right now. Actually, I kind of wish he would say Steve Smith is "garbage" so Smith could send him to the ER. Would probably go down a little like this:
I think the Broncos win and it's actually not very close. As good as the Seattle defense is, Manning will still score close to if not more than 30 points. Seattle's offense will not be able to keep up.
If this isn't corruption I don't know what is. I honestly don't know how much longer I can stay a football fan if the refs continue to play a bigger and bigger part of the outcome of the games. It killed basketball for me years ago, after the Lakers-Kings fiasco in 2002.
