Stafford type haul indeed
Seems like a decent deal for all parties. Indy hasn’t overpaid, Eagles get shot of that contract and Reich was the last coach to get a tune out of Wentz.
They’re going to do everything they can to make sure they don’t hit this aren’t they
Might have to start a Revolving Door QB Chart for movers, potential movers and potential retirees. Feel free to add/update.

Have such a morbid fascination with this era of QBs, think we’re a couple of years away from there being a major lack of starting quality players. One of the many reasons I think the Raiders or Cowboys would be insane to move on this off-season.
Another curio coming out of the Wentz trade: The Browns ended up trading every single pick they received in exchange for giving the Eagles second overall. The results were…not good.
Y’see, it’s all very well with the Browns being quite good and vaguely competent now, but life was a lot more straightforward when they could be relied upon to do absolutely everything badly. You knew where you were. Browns QBs came and went like the seasons, often within the same game. Men were men. The corned beef of our childhood was well remembered.
Am I blaming them becoming good-ish for the pandemic? Not directly, but they were undoubtedly simpler times.
Hard to know if it’s just Twitter but it’s sounding like Drew Brees is strongly considering returning next year…
Would be nice to definitely count NO out of the running for a SB so early in the offseason
Come on, Drew. Don’t be THAT guy!
That got a teary laugh from a tired new dad. And for that, if nothing else, we thank you!
‘Share with contacts?’. Yes, sir!
Think he’s waiting until June to retire for murky cap reasons I don’t fully understand. He’s restructured his contract so that his cap hit will only be the veterans minimum next year but the financial hole the Saints are in means that even if he stays he’ll be playing on the worst Saints team he’s ever been a part of.
Seems like a tough gig to go to following that racist coach debacle a couple of weeks ago, but glad she is back in work in the NFL. Absolutely ridiculous that the Texans fired her in the first place.
Are you ready for some FOOTBAW?
Also, inspired by Wentz not being given number 11 by Michael Pittman (lol), what number would you choose to wear as QB if you had a free choice?
You better believe I’m coming after you, Brady
Believe QBs also have the option of wearing zero.
Everyone remember Kemah Siverand, the Seahawks rookie who was dropped for trying to sneak a lady into the team hotel by disguising her in Seahawks gear? He’s with the Raiders now, and has been arrested for street racing in Houston and evading the police.
