if we're involved, at least let it be an away game.

Ha, I feel bad for Londoners being subject to this much ineptitude between our offense/tendency to beat ourselves and the Cleveland Browns. Laughing

I love seeing our team travel to London for home or away games. I think it's great to see the Vikings gear on foreign fasn and see the Viking brand get bigger.

A player gaining 1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards receiving in the same season is so special that it has only happened twice in NFL history: Roger Craig did it with the 1985 49ers, and Marshall Faulk did it with the 1999 Rams. Now a third player is closing in on that territory. Cardinals running back David Johnson already has 1,085 rushing yards this season. And with 745 receiving yards this season with three games to go, he has a shot at hitting 1,000 yards receiving as well.

The NFL football operations department is making a strong push for a developmental league or academy at the ongoing league meetings.

Some teams would prefer to have expanded practice squads with additional spring practice time, but I wouldn't discount the NFL's initiatives here. It has strong support within 345 Park Avenue and this is something that could be brought to an ownership vote in the spring, I'm told.

If they want a big name coach they're going to have to offer the guy a pile of money.

It's not necessarily an ideal situation. Jeff Fisher for his part took a shot at the Rams front office, complaining about "personnel issues". Although I too am at a loss as to why Les Snead still has a job, you generally don't want to be burning bridges like that.

Alcohol has seemed to cause his lots of problems, got in trouble a couple of times at Notre Dame too.

Inconsistencies and injuries on top of poor off the field choices...

I'd still take him over Charles Johnson....

Ed Werder is reporting that The Patriots have claimed Michael Floyd.

It’s not likely that receiver Michael Floyd will do much in the final three weeks of the regular season or the postseason in New England, given the difficulties inherent to learning a new playbook, new terminology, new teammates, and new coaches. Rarely if ever does a plug-and-play receiver have an immediate impact on his new team.

But the Patriots surely didn’t claim Floyd on waivers simply for what he can do for them over the balance of the season. As Floyd enters the final three games of his rookie contract, the Patriots have acquired another significant benefit: The ability to have Floyd’s potential departure in free agency count toward their 2018 compensatory draft picks.

Football fans know Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell is good. But some overlook just how good Bell is. So far in his career, he has gained yardage at a rate unseen by any other running back, ever. Running backs are usually judged by rushing yards, but yards from scrimmage — rushing and receiving combined — may be a better measure of a player’s overall contribution to an offense. And by that measure, no one does it like Bell.

In his 45 career games, Bell has 3,830 rushing yards and 1,952 receiving yards, for a total of 5,782 yards from scrimmage. That works out to an average of 128.5 scrimmage yards per game. That’s the best average in NFL history.

Probably a good hire for Jax. I'm surprised Coughlin wants to return to the NFL. Isn't he old?

He's just doing the normal, old, retired thing... moving to Florida.
