First topic message reminder :

I mean are we even sure Gordon isn't a one year wonder who never stuck around for his drop off season.

A lot of hype for a guy who's had more near comebacks than games played in years

A 10 year contract is rather bold in a league where injuries are so common. However, if there is one player that merits the big money and being tied to your team for that long, it's Mahomes - two seasons as a starter and already league MVP in one and a Superbowl win in the other.

Reports that today will be the last day for the Washington Redskins. Momentum seems to be behind Redwolves as the new name, but nothing confirmed yet.

It’s no more ridiculous than Texans or Browns - they’d be ridiculed if they were suggested on Twitter these days.

Jags have traded away Ngakoue and released Fournette. Remember when they nearly went to the Superbowl and looked set to be a top team?

If you thought backup QB was a sweet job before; thanks to the COVID rules Josh McCown is now theoretically on the Eagles' practice squad, but is actually geting paid a five-figure sum every week to sit at home unless a QB gets injured.

Can’t think of a worse weekend for injuries in a long, long time. Absolutely brutal.

Bosa, Barkley, Sutton all done for the year.

CMC out for 6 weeks. Jimmy G and Drew Lock injured too. Carnage.

So the first match has been postponed... interesting to see how this goes, if the Vikes also have any issues, given the small size of the NFL season

Texans have cleared house: GM, HC and the just recently appointed offensive play caller all gone. Yes; Bill O'Brien has somehow been fired.

I don’t think he’s a terrible coach to be fair. And the schedule was brutal this year for them. But when you make the huge calls like he did, you are putting your head on the chopping block.

Obviously he was a horrible GM, one of the worst we’ve seen, but agree with JDizzle in that I don’t think he’s a bad coach. Like an offensive equivalent of Marvin Lewis, not really good enough to get you over the hump in the playoffs but will have you there or thereabouts

From a wider organisation standpoint - absolutely barmy they gave him all this power, allowed him to do what he’s done as a GM in the last 12 months, and then fire him so soon after the offseason. If he was on a short leash, why on earth are you allowing him to decide to trade away all your picks and your best player?

Pats vs Broncos has been postponed, Bills vs Titans has provisionally been moved to Tuesday. Wheels haven't come off the season quite yet, but they're looking pretty loose...

I think it's a matter of time before the NFL season gets stopped. Covid is far from being under control in the US and they just don't have the control that the NBA has.

Falcons get in on the HC/GM search. Quinn had to go, but it seems a little harsh on Dimitroff to me.

Is it. Roster is lacking and Dimitroff is on his 2nd HC.

Lacking what? There's plenty of talent there. Maybe they didn't trust him with the new hire, maybe they just wanted a complete fresh start, but I think it's going to be harder for them to find a clear upgrade than it will be for another franchise to clearly upgrade by bringing him in.

Do they have any defensive players outside of Grady Jarrett who are actually good? I tend to agree with GSC, Dimitroff did stellar work half a decade ago but he’s struggled as much as Quinn since the super bowl
