    This whole Tua concussion story is not a good look for either the Dolphins or the NFL. With the continuing focus on CTE and player welfare it's a pretty grim episode. I watched both the games on Sunday v the Bill and last night at the Bengals and it was obvious that he was dealing with a head injury on both occasions, regardless of the revision to the story between HT on Sunday and the 1st injury report of the week. I don't blame the player, he looked to be on the verge of a breakout season and he's a tough guy, of course he wants to play. Players need protected from themselves though and the events of the last 2 games calls into question the integrity of both the medical team in Miami and the independent medical evaluator(s) put in place by the league.

    From a purely football point of view I really don't know what the Dolphins were thinking either. We had a tough start; with the Patriots, Ravens, Bills and Bengals I would have been happy with 2-2 but wouldn't have been surprised by 1-3 or even 0-4. To go into last night at 3-0 was very good. It was a tough road game on a short turnaround after a war with the Bills. Just sit him and go with Bridgewater and give him time to recover for the upcoming games. We are now going to go into a better run of games against the Jets, Lions, Steelers, Bears, Browns and Texans (I would have been looking for 4-2 minimum from that) with a back up who looks washed for a fair few of them. Suddenly a winnable run of games looks a whole lot harder. A pretty self destructive few days on a number of levels.

    It's weird, the short term thinking is the opposite of what they should be doing with him he's a potential franchise QB. When Aaron Rodgers went through a few concussion concerns from afar I thought it was handled well, they bit the bullet and gave him a few weeks off and built him a better helmet to protect the sides of his head.

    Yep, when he got up after the hit in the Bills game he was staggering, the commentator called it out, said he was 'woozy', but then after the game the team call it a back injury, Tua himself says its a back injury, and nobody flags it up until he gets slammed on the head the very next week?

    With all the care and attention the league is supposedly paying to this issue because of the high likelihood of future litigation it was a really bad look. I didnt particularly like McDaniel talking about 'only' a concussion, either.

    Bridgewater is one of the leagues better backups, and with those two receivers Waddle and Hill you only really need an average QB to have an explosive passing game. I think Miami will be fine.

    Jets 2nd and goal at steelers nice move for a TD 0-10

    they've only led for 22 seconds this season, now up to 6+ mins


    jets do it again right at the death to win 24-20, 2-0 on the road for the first time since 2015


    looking forward to Packers v Patriots, hope it's a more exciting game than the Brady/Rodgers game last week

    mon Green Bay

    M Stanford having a nightmare again against San Francisco. Id rather have Goff back from the Lions. 6 sacks tonight and a touchdown interception. Looks like 7 straight for San Francisco in regular season against the Rams. 24-9 looks like final

    NFC west is a very weird division for bogey teams. No matter which team is better in the NFL overall, the 49ers always beat the Rams, the Rams always beat the Seahawks, but the Seahawks always beat the 49ers! (16-5) over 10 years. Including Arizona, all four teams are 2-2, but my money is still on the Rams. Far too talented a roster to be down for long.

    Why do you attempt a fake punt at your own 20 yard line, EVER, far less when the score is 10-10 in the second quarter?

    I want to see Pete Carrolls press conference after Seattle inevitably lose this game now.

    Green Bay now on a 5-game losing streak for first time since 2008, Rodgers first season as a QB

    Detroit Lions win 15-9 and are now 2-6, Green Bay 3-6

    I enjoy American football now and then but not into it enough for posts.

    I am just about to start watching the darkside of American football on c4 on demand.

    I assume its from the same makers of darkside of the ring.

    I'm surprised there has been no chat about this, Ohio St v Michigan about to kick off, both teams unbeaten.

    What a game, currently 45-23 to Michigan, I thought Ohio St would win but Michigan just bossed them in the second half.
