Seattle traded for OT Duane Brown. Smart move.

Jimmy G traded from Pats to 49ers. 2nd round pick.

Someone didn't learn from the Packers apparently.

Anybody watching the MNF Chiefs Broncos game? Siemian reminds me of Ponder (in a bad way). Decision making and the way he panics when pressured.

This team is really trying to take our mantle as most painful team to follow, maybe we should just win the Super Bowl this year and let them have the title?

Challenge accepted! Teddy runs out on the field for the first time at the Rams game, blows out his knee, knocks over one of the pyro stands, whole stadium burns down.

That's funny but it isn't.

This season could legitimately come down to who has the bast backups. What a crazy season for injuries!

Is there any lightweight brace that players can wear to prevent these types of injuries? They just printed an actual bridge with a 3D printer. Can't they print custom knee braces?

Braces help but can't eliminate injuries. Some doctors claim they actually do more harm than good as they restrict movement and prevent "give." I think maybe Belichek subscribes to that theory or so I read somewhere.
Companies that make knee braces claim that their products work well. Scientific studies have not completely agreed. Some doctors are afraid that knee braces may actually increase the number of knee injuries in athletes

Non-contact during practice today. Kept a read-option in team against air and went down.
