Marquise Goodwin is making his way back. He’d be a welcome addition to an already capable offense that’s putting it all together.
Last week Fins fans were screaming about Thomas getting touches over Miller. Here’s a little something that adds to your argument.
Fire Rex! Give Rex another year! Renew Rex’s contract!?!?
Getting Gronk back would be a huge upgrade to a stifled offense, but he won’t cure all their offensive woes.

A little life lesson brought to you by your friend Vinny.
If you think you may be suffering from a stomach virus or mild flu, do not attempt to beat it by eating an "angry whopper". I feel like I had one of those hot sauce enemas that RCR was trying to talk BPardo into yesterday...
steelers jets is a trap game for the jets no matter how bad steelers have been playing
outside of the last game their D has actually been pretty good- I think the last 2 games - steelers o has been putting up points
if both sides click we could be in for a long game - additionally geno has 1 turnover free game against a bad d - not sold yet
For those updating rosters at home, DT Andre Neblett will wear No. 71 with the Patriots.
Nothing says championship like an undrafted ['10] guy that was busted for PEDs and cut by the Panthers.
Speaking of Manziel Tannehill should go see his old back up to learn how to run around like backyard football when the pocket collapses
@SlickVinny I'm clicking on your post and it's not taking me there.
@SlickVinny Thanks for providing the link!
@hotsaucesteve he looked awesome last game but I don't think anyone can run on us honestly
@SlickVinny I haven't had that in years but it is amazing
I think PIT and NYG are trap games for everyone right now. Both teams are capable of having a big game and beating almost anyone.
@the hooded genius BB will turn him around.
@joeyboy790 Looks like your DL will completely obliterate their OL...
@cgc5783 I just got Garret Graham too. He's got better hands than OD, better receiver but not nearly as good at blocking.
@MIANoleInSWFL should offer them free brazilians...
@MIANoleInSWFL Now that is forward thinking.
Schaub is average but so is Yates. Anyone they could sign at this point would be 5 times worse than either of them.
@iycedout Billy Currington said it best.
@hotsaucesteve im very concerned about how we play brown
@the hooded genius couldn't agree more - I don't feel the giants are nearly as bad as their record suggests but the OL/DL injuries do hurt
I'm sure he already has. Once troubled guys come to NE, they never make a mistake for the rest of their time here.
@CJ gets two many carries What's your team name?
Their team would be inverted. Right now they can consistently beat bad teams but struggle against top teams. Manziel would give them the ability to beat top teams on occasion, and to lose to the bad ones more often.
@the hooded genius Schaub is one of the top paid QBs in the league lol.
@the hooded genius Tesla made BB who he is today
As long as Peyton doesn't win another SB, I'm good. I made a couple bets with a friend before the Eli/Rivers/Ben draft. I lost the first [that Eli would win a SB before Peyton] but the 2nd is still in play [that Eli would win more for his career]. I got 10:1 odds on both so that could be a nice payday.
@the hooded genius well he will now that reid is gone - he barely touches the ball considering the amount of plays they run some years- not all years but some are frustrating - last year for him was tough
@the hooded genius Man, I just looked up McCoy's background, his numbers in 2011 were sick, 1624 total yards, 20 TDs.
@the hooded genius The internet says 4.45
@the hooded genius Didn't Vick beat Shady McCoy straight up in 40 yard dash this offseason?
I bet Manziel is as fast as Vick right now, maybe a few tenths faster, but not in his prime though. I'd guess both to be around 4.4.
@the hooded genius probably worse than vick - manziel does too much with his legs - nfl defenders are faster
manziel makes a. lucky toss up plays often which is weird...
b. his plays off his legs on broken plays
@the hooded genius Manziel won't be doing anything from a stretcher.
@the hooded genius Ben Grubbs
Pitta is a nice TE, I think he's their biggest injury this year
@the hooded genius he might get a lot of credit, but if your franchise is a consistent winner, where else does the credit go to?
@the hooded genius ngata suggs webb there when rex was there no?
Ngata, Suggs, Webb, etc. He's one of the better GMs but sometimes gets too much credit [like BB has at times in the past].
A source tells ProFootballTalk that the Texans can get out of Matt Schaub's contract relatively cheaply following this season.Schaub has thrown a pick-six in three straight games, leading to a 2-2 record. Fans are burning his jersey outside the stadium. So even though the Texans signed Schaub to a five-year, $66 million contract a year ago, the talk about going in a new direction is getting louder. If the Texans designate Schaub as a post-June 1 cut following this season, the 2014 cap hit would be $3.5 million. In 2015, $7 million in dead money would apply. But the Texans would save his $10 million 2014 base salary and another $1 million in bonuses. Regardless, we wouldn't expect the Texans to bail on Schaub so quickly -- he's by far their best option and has a track record as a fine game manager. You just can't ask him to win games.
