The deadly Frank 'n Wentz combo!

 

Should be absolute money at Christmas time....

If healthy I think Wentz has an mvp calibre season. If Reich managed make Rivers look good, he'll do the same with Wentz. He's got one of the best O lines protecting him, a solid running game, and WRs that can really fly. Wouldn't be suprised if Ertz makes his way to Indy this off season. As good as Doyle is in the redzone, hes a better blocking TE

As a Bills fan, I have a soft spot for Frank Reich. Jim Kelly is my all-time favorite player, (and Josh Allen is well on his way to becoming #2) but IMHO, Reich's comeback in the WC Game against the Oilers is the greatest QB performance in team history....

 

...I'll have no problem at all cheering for Reich, Wentz and the Colts nest season.....except when they're playing the Bills, of course....B)

I get that Russ is ticked about all the sacks against; however I'd bet the Seahawks could afford a better O line if they had more cap room.

Seems a lot of that cap space went to pay their quarter back. Russ is now the third highest annual  salary value in the league:

Russell Wilson's frustrations with the Seattle Seahawks uncharacteristically boiled over earlier this month. But apparently his dismay runs so deep that his representatives have approached the team about at least four potential NFL trade destinations, according to The Athletic

The next Brady? Seahawks Russell Wilson says he wants a '20 plus year' carWilson just completed the first season of a four-year, $140 million extension that briefly made him the league's highest-paid player, based on average annual compensation, before his pact was eclipsed by Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson. Wilson's contract also contains a full no-trade clause, meaning the Seahawks, who drafted him in the third round in 2012, can't deal him anywhere without his approval. 

Apparently, Wilson's team has already pinpointed the Las Vegas Raiders, Miami Dolphins, New Orleans Saints and New York Jets as teams the seven-time Pro Bowler would be willing to join if the football waters off Puget Sound can't be calmed. ESPN later reported, via Wilson's agent, that his preference is to remain with the Seahawks, but he'd only consider being dealt to the Saints, Raiders, Dallas Cowboys or Chicago Bears

Earlier this month, after Wilson was awarded the NFL's prestigious Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award the night before Super Bowl 55, he broke from his typically sunny disposition in relation to Seattle. Wilson revealed he was "frustrated I’m getting hit too much" after getting sacked 394 times in his career.

“I want to be able to be involved because at the end of the day, it’s your legacy, it’s your team’s legacy, it’s the guys you get to go into the huddle with and at the end of the day, those guys you’ve got to trust,” he also told "The Dan Patrick Show" after the Super Bowl.

“I think if you ask guys like Drew Brees, Peyton Manning, you know, even Tom (Brady), you know, I think that you saw this year how much he was involved in the process – I think that’s something that is important to me.”

Wilson, 32, has never experienced a losing season with the Seahawks and has only missed the playoffs once in his nine seasons. He was part of the 2013 squad that brought Seattle its only Super Bowl title to date, but the 'Hawks haven't advanced beyond the divisional round since Wilson's infamous interception cost the team a shot to repeat by winning Super Bowl 49 to cap the 2014 campaign.

The Athletic also details Wilson's growing issues with longtime Seattle coach Pete Carroll and his general unwillingness to let Wilson take control of the offense, i.e., "let Russ cook."

Wilson appeared to be on track to win his first MVP award after a blistering start to the 2020 season. But he struggled down the stretch and threw a pick-six in the NFC West champs' wild-card loss to the Los Angeles Rams. 

Wilson has still never received a single MVP vote during his career.

Obviously he has not seen Bears O line play this or the last few seasons.

What Mahomes went through in the SB that is the weekly occurrence in Chicago.

I hope you guys get Watson.  Chicago deserves a better QB than Trubisky.  As much as I dislike the Saints, Wilson would be an excellent fit there.  I think the Saints are pretty cash strapped though.

When your best all time QB is Sid Luckman that played back in 1940s, you know your team sucks at picking QB.

TBH, I see maybe Winston getting traded to Chicago if they get Watson or us getting Fitzpatrick.

On the one hand, Danger-Russ has got a point.  Why would you not invest in a line that can protect your highest paid and unquestionably your most talented, most valuable player?  It's only a matter of time, unless things change in Seattle, when Russ is going to get hurt unless you protect that asset. 

 

On the other hand, there is a growing trend, not only in the NFL, but several major pro sports, where highly-paid, high-profile players feel entitled to have a say in how their team's are managed and which personnel are both acquired/let go and I have a feeling Danger-Russ feels like he should get a say whereas Schnieder/Carroll don't.

One of those weird/fun stories that make you go "hmmm....".:

Terry Bradshaw Once Had Elbow Surgery Under the Assumed Name ‘Tom Brady’

Terry Bradshaw was hurting after the 1982 season. The 34-year-old Steelers quarterback had torn muscle and tendons in his throwing elbow in training camp after slipping on a wet field while throwing a pass. Aided by cortisone shots, he managed to play every one of the nine games in the strike-shortened season, but needed surgery in the offseason to repair the damage.

 

On March 3, 1983, Bradshaw was admitted to Doctor’s Hospital in his hometown of Shreveport, La., for surgery. To avoid being descended upon by press and admirers, Bradshaw was admitted under an assumed name: Thomas Brady.

Interesting article from Sports Illustrated about understanding the NFL salary cap.

I didn't realize teams could carry over salary cap room from one year to the next.
