    Carson Wentz getting booed with no fans in the stadium is pretty hilarious. I'd like to buy that sound guy a beer.

    Thursday night football will feature the Jaguars vs Dolphins. It will be Gardner Minshew vs Ryan Fitzpatrick. It is already being hailed as "the battle of facial hair". It will be Gardner Minshew's mustache vs Ryan Fitzpatrick's beard. Well, Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown a shot at Gardner Minshew's mustache.

    Ryan Fitzpatrick - "I think the beard is cooler, because guys that grow mustache's have patchy sides."

    Hello, I'm a Joe Louis card addict.

    In the battle of the facial hair, I actually like the Jacksonville Mustaches over the Miami Beards.

    My prediction:

    Mustaches - 24
    Beards - 16

    The Bosa brother that plays for the niners is also out for the season.
    The one that plays for the Chargers is an absolute beast and is still healthy and on the loose.
    If you spot the Bosa beast please we ask you do not approach him. Contact the local authorities
    and they will take the appropriate measures to subdue him.

    Minshew fires back at Fitzpatrick! It's getting juicy!

    Gardner Minshew - "I'll let my mustache speak for itself, but I'm going to have respect for my elders, especially when they're much, much elder."

    Indianapolis Colts linebacker Darius Leonard gave a young fan his gloves after the Vikings game on Sunday, but what Darius Leonard didn't realize is that his wedding ring had slid off his finger and was still inside the glove. Darius later discovered what had happened and figured his wedding ring was gone for good. Luckily, the young fan is honest and sent Darius's wife a message on social media, and told her he had found the ring.

    I am not sure what the mask issue is with all of these coaches. Its really is no big deal to wear a mask for 4 or 5 hours. i do it every day. but every time the camera pans to the sideline, these guys have their masks pulled down over their chin and are yelling. either you take it seriously or you dont. it seems the NFL is taking it seriously. If I was Goodell, i would issue the warning that after this round of fines, any coach seen on the sideline without a mask would be suspended without pay for 1 game. I bet that would get their attention.

    I think it’s a caught in the moment habit, I’ve actually taken my mask down to speak out of habit of something blocking my mouth. I understand the NFL’s position though but I don’t think these guys are doing it intentionally

    Yes, bronco is right, the doctor was trying to give Tyrod Taylor a painkiller shot for his cracked ribs, and the idiot punctured his lung. Justin Herbert will start for the Chargers Sunday against my kittens.

    Tyrod Taylor as a person is as good as they come. As a quarterback he has had zero luck. Buffalo drafted Allen. Cleveland drafted mayfield. Finally a chance for him to start and the Chargers drafted Herbert.
    My take on Taylor as a quarterback? His favorite play on 3rd and 9 is a 3 yard scramble.

    In 2016 Tyrod Taylor had Robert Woods and Sammy Watkins as receivers. He threw a grand total of 19 TD passes that year. 19 to the whole team. 19!! Buffalo scored a grand total of 3 points in the playoff game. I called him Mr. 3 yard scramble.

    Ben Roethlisberger will break the record Sunday for most games played for the Steelers. He will break Mike Websters record of 220 games played for the Steelers when he takes the field against the Texans on Sunday. It will be his 221st game played for the Steelers.

    Jon Gruden has come up with a nickname for Cam Newton. He calls him "Slam" Newton.

    Jon Gruden - "I haven't seen many guys walk through my doors that look like Cam. I call him Slam,
    Slam Newton. That was a name I gave him. He is a power forward playing quarterback. He's oversized for the position, but he's gifted so much athletically."

    We all know Minshew Mania has taken the NFL by storm, but here are a few interesting facts you may not know about Gardner Minshew:

    1. He once tried to break his own hand with a hammer. Follow the link to read about that insane story.

    1. He exercises in the lockerroom wearing only a jockstrap, shades, and a headband and sometimes he exercises completely nude. And Steve Spurrier has actually walked in on him while he was doing it!!

    1. He sleeps on a cheap used $10 mattress that he bought off of Facebook marketplace.

    I remember the story about trying to break his hand. If he could do it again, maybe he'd try to break his non-throwing hand. That way he wouldn't have risked messing up his grip and he would have been able to maybe put some more elbow grease into it.

    I go to the Charger's team docs. Have also gone to Kerkan Jobe docs, who operate on ~ 20% of big name pro athletes from every team in US. Tommy John surgery invented by Dr. Jobe. If you're a big name you go to KJ or the orthos in Colorado (where Kobe went).

    Received multiple pain relief injections from each medical group. The Chargers team orthos are every bit as good as KJ docs.

    Well, I was certainly way off with my Beards vs Mustaches pick. On Thursday night football, the Beards stomped the Mustaches 31-13. Fitzmagic had his way with the Jaguars and seemed to be enjoying himself. He completed twelve straight passes at one point, including a pass to himself.
    He also broke a record, the record being that he has now defeated the Jags as the quarterback for the Dolphins, Bengals, Bills, Titans,Texans and Jets. He has beat the Jags as the quarterback for six different teams. He is the Jags' daddy.

    Minshew certainly will have respect for his elders now. Last night, the elder Fitzpatrick had to issue a little discipline to Minshew.
    "Come over here Mustache boy, the Beard is going to teach you about respect for your elders."

    Beards - 31
    Mustaches - 13

    So the Jags beat Indy week 1 and had a chance to beat Tennessee last week. Miami gives up 500 yards to Buffalo and handles the Jags with ease. Miami defense throttled Jacksonville. Maybe Buffalo is really that good. We’ll see when the Rams come to town Sunday.

    Fitzpatrick is either really good or really bad , If the stars align fitzy can beat anyone but he beats himself at least half the time

    That is true, sometimes Ryan Fitzpatrick will light it up and put up huge numbers, and then the next week he'll stink it up. But let's face it, last night was no ordinary game, it was the Facial Hair Bowl, and Fitzpatrick walked away with the Facial Hair Bowl championship, and that's what counts.

    Cowboys defensive end Trysten Hill is likely to face a fine for this tackle on Seahawks running back Chris Carson in yesterday's game. You can see in this video that when Trysten Hill has a hold of Carson's leg, he does a "gator roll". After the play occured, Chris Carson grabbed his knee in pain. It was determined that Carson has a knee sprain.

    the Falcons should serve as a prime example of why no one should ever pile on any team that runs up the score. the object of any game is to win..............whatever it takes. and in the case of Atlanta, a team/organization that clearly does not possess a lick of killer instinct, every single point is needed.

    so the next time one of those lame baseball managers bellyaches about the opposition swinging on 3-0 with a 7-run lead in the top of the ninth, try to recall a football team that blew a 28-3 SB lead in the 3rd and also gagged two 15-pt, 4th-quarter leads in the same season for the first time in decades.
