Barth was told to leave the facility but missed the door by about 15 yards

Every now and then, there's that one acquisition - free agent, trade, whatever it might be - that happens to the right team at the right time and sets off a ripple effect that can boost a struggling squad into a Super Bowl contender.

This probably isn't it though. I'm just saying it does happen sometimes

Poor Mitch worked so hard to get us in field goal range lol

Love this signing!!! Edit: whoever down voted this is Connor Barth’s mother.

Dak Prescott 8 games with Tyron Smith: sacked 10 times 2 games without Tyron Smith: sacked 12 times

I’m starting to think having a good left tackle is important for your QB.

Russell Wilson doesn't seem to care

Why even have a left tackle? Might as well just line up with ten dudes so Dak doesn't get the impression that he'll have protection on that side

So, before any other Eagles fans come here to say "we also lost Peters (LT) Hicks (MLB) and Sproles (RB)" I want to say, while that's true, we clearly have better players in their stead. Not to mention, Doug Pederson (aside from BB) is the best at making in-game-adjustments in the 2017 season. You take those 2 factors along with an MVP caliber QB, and it looks a lot easier for the Eagles to play without those players.

All that said, while I believe Dak is a good QB, these last few games have shown serious flaws in Dak's game. He's a very skittish pocket passer who doesn't look comfortable unless he's rolling to the outside. His accuracy isn't as great as I originally thought and he definitely doesn't have the arm strength to force throws. His lack of awareness in the pocket combined with his inability (either because he can't or the coaches won't let him) to change calls at the line, all contribute to this slump we're seeing out of Dak. He can easily develop past these issues, but the coaches need to do it.

That leads me to my next point. Garrett, while being a former NFL QB himself, doesn't seem to be as much as a developmental guy as the coaches I see with the Eagles and Doug Pederson. Then, Garrett comes up with a great pre-game plan but when it falters, he looks just as lost as Dak under pressure. Which isn't a coincidence. Both are bad when the bullets start to fly. The difference is, one guy is young and can be coached up to overcome that deficiency while the other is who he is. Garrett needs to be replaced or Dallas better get used to seeing Dak play great sometimes and play abysmal sometimes. He'll never have the consistency he's shown through his first 24 games with Garrett continuing as head coach.

Lastly, and this might be my most important hot take /s, I think Jerry Jones cares more about Garrett than he does Dak. In fact, he might resent Dak somewhat for dethroning Jerry's pride and joy, Tony Romo. Because of this, I'm not sure Jerry Jones moves on from Garrett, but tries to shoehorn some unconventional way to improve Dak's play. When it ultimately doesn't work, Dak will be made the scapegoat.

TL;DR -- Prescott is a solid with obvious flaws QB who needs to be better developed but can't/won't until Garrett is gone. Also a hot take about Jerry disliking Dak.

Buday: Tom Brady has a passer rating of 110.8 under pressure this season. Only six quarterbacks have a better passer rating when kept clean and one of them is Brady.

Brady should be the unanimous MVP right now to be honest, but it probably won't happen because of voter fatigue. Wentz looks amazing and is having a hell of a season but what Brady is doing right now is miles ahead of anybody in the league.

He's on pace to pretty much replicate his 2010 MVP campaign plus an additional 1000 passing yards.

Like a fine wine, Brady just gets better with age. He had an insane year last year despite missing 4 games, and he's having an even better year this year despite the 1st week blunder against the Chiefs.

Whenever there is "panic" with the Patriots, it always subsides after a few weeks. Their "terrible defense" is getting better by the week, and the Patriots look to be not only the best team in the AFC, but the best team in the NFL.

Tom Brady is magical. The fact he's doing what he does at age 40 says just how good he is. He isn't a "system quarterback", or being "carried by a defense", or "only good because of Bill"-- he's just flat out good and the GOAT.

People keep saying "voter fatigue" in this sub, yet the very media that votes on MVP seems to be clearly putting Brady as the favorite.

He also hasn't won an MVP in 7 years, so while he is an annual candidate, he still hasn't won in a long time. Thus I'm not sure fatigue is really going to be a factor. (And it certainly wasn't ever a factor for Peyton)

According to @EliasSports, Dre Kirkpatrick's 101-yard interception return vs the Broncos is the longest that did not result in a touchdown in NFL history.

Unreal honestly. Only the Bengals.

The only reason it wasn't the most Bengal thing ever is that they actually scored the TD. If they'd had a false start, 2 runs for no gain, an incomplete pass and then missed the field goal it would have been the quintessential Bengal moment.

I guess he beat Champ Bailey's non-TD against Brady then

I was very really expecting the Bengals to do something that would result in the Broncos scoring a defensive touchdown.

Broncos have promoted their QB coach Bill Musgrave t offensive coordinator, per source. Former OC Mike McCoy has been let go, as @RapSheet reported.

Because when your previously historically great defense gives up 92 points in two games and follows it up with allowing three TDs and no picks to Andy Dalton, clearly the solution is to fire the offensive coordinator.

Oh Mikey. Mission accomplished for San Diego

I fucking hated watching Bill Musgrave offenses.

He didnt get fired for nothing

Saints pass-rusher Alex Okafor, one of their top free agent signings and in the midst of breaking out, is out for the season with a torn Achilles, sources say. He’s helped that defense’s epic turnaround.

This really fucking sucks, dude has been unreal for us

Looks like it's up to Kikaha and Hendrickson to pick it up, both have flashed this year. Hopefully not much of a regression, and hope Okafor just comes back stronger next year :(

oh fuck

This can seriously derail our season. Okafor wasn't just doing great as a passrusher but he was amazing as a run stopper as well. Now we don't have anyone opposite of Cam except for a raw rookie and a guy that is so bad at stopping the run we didn't activate him against teams like Buffalo and Chicago.

FUCKING fuck me god fucking damnit

This hurts. He's been one of the best run defenders in the league this year.

The only bright side to this is that Hendrickson is a very capable DE and Kikaha is still an excellent speed rusher and both will see an increase in snaps.

[Highlight] Adam Thielen's Route Running

Did you know he went to college on a $500 dollar scholarship?

Bench him.

-Sean McDermott

And is from Detroit Lakes, Minnesota?

Golly he has great role running ONTOP of being able to catch any ball in his vicinity
