Former Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch was Arrested for DUI this morning in Las Vegas

 

 

Really, really stupid.

Multi millionaire- call a freaking limo

Heck even if you're nearly broke- call a cab

completely broke- bus

no money at all -walk.

 

No sympathy for drunk drivers.

Start charging drunk drivers with attempted murder, maybe a few more will finally get the message.

I'll make a one time exception for someone who goes to rehab, but even then they need to get some time behind bars.

Deshaun Watson suspended 11 games; What now for the Cleveland Browns at quarterback? (espn.com)

 

11 Game suspension and $5 Million fine.   A lot of tough talk from the NFL HQ, but in end not much of a punishment  A bit of a joke really.

Even more when you consider that his salary for this upcoming season is $1 million.  So the missing games only represents $666,666 in missed salary.

Seahawks name Geno Smith starting QB after Drew Lock's trio of INTs made decision for them

 

Pete Carroll has finally named the Seattle Seahawks' starting quarterback, and it's Geno Smith.

 

"Geno's gonna start," Carroll said Friday night after Seattle's 27-26 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in which Drew Lock threw three interceptions. "He's gonna start the opener, and he's earned it, he's won the job. With the time frames that got messed up for Drew, he just ran out of time."

Lord have mercy. I guess Hawks fans can start looking forward to the draft?

"WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington Commanders rookie running back Brian Robinson Jr. was shot during an attempted robbery or carjacking, the NFL team said Sunday night.

 

The 23-year-old former Alabama player was taken to a hospital with what the team called non-life-threatening injuries. The team said in a statement staff members were with Robinson at the hospital.

D.C. police reported a shooting in the northeast section of the city and said it was on the lookout for two possible suspects.

Robinson, a third-round draft pick, was was expected to start for the Commanders this season. He had been particularly impressive during training camp and preseason games, likely earning the job over incumbent Antonio Gibson.

“Brian’s been great," offensive coordinator Scott Turner said recently. “He’s a real serious guy. Football is extremely important to him. He takes a lot of pride in being a physical runner."

Robinson traveled with the team for its preseason finale at Baltimore on Saturday night but did not dress.

The 6-foot-1, 228-pound back rushed for 1,343 yards and 14 touchdowns last season at Alabama. The Commanders selected him with the 98th pick in the draft.

The Broncos believe that Russ still has plenty of gas in the tank.....$49 million for 5 years says it's so....

It's a lot better than hunting through the bargain bin for a QB like we have been doing since Manning retired.

Figured he'd get along well with Watson.

His past aside he has kept his nose clean off the field and has been a beast power back coming in to spell Nick Chubb and keep the pressure on the opposing defence.

 

Mid season trade to a contender makes a lot of sense.

 

Maybe a final piece of a potential Eagles Super Bowl run like Jay Ajayi was @c00kies?
