    I posted that just above, but it's worth repeating just to properly highlight the idiocy of Bell.

    Sorry. Didn’t see it

    It’s not his idiocy that needs highlighting, it’s patently obvious in statements. It’s the persistency false sports media narrative that he’s somehow a smart and clever businessman and astute student of professional sports.
    It’s odd that certain athletes are imbued by commentators as being exceptional smart or business savants. You’d think there’d be an equal number of morons and fools. That side of the story is rarely told

    Why not? It’s worked for at least one other person.

    Have there really been any members of the media telling a narrative of Bell being intelligent? I guess some have said he handled last season well. Maybe I missed a lot of it because I started trying to tune out the Bell stories after a while.

    Six years, $154.7 million for Carson Wentz

    I'm guessing it makes sense despite his injuries. A starting QB costs what he costs. And even if he fails to live up to it, they can draft a rookie and not worry about paying the market rate on two qbs until the contract is up again.

    what are you talking about? Wentz was on his way to being MVP before he was hurt.

    And now he's had a second major injury on top of it. Lots of guys have looked great before getting hurt and never fully recovered.
    You can write off one injury as a fluke thing. A second is much tougher to do that with, even if they were unrelated. It also makes you wonder how effective he'll be going forward.

    Are you going with injury prone?

    In the 1950s, a few NFL teams played CFL teams in exhibitions. They’d play half the game with NFL rules and the other half with CFL rules.
