Texans should’ve been signed Clowney. Who they got if Watt gets hurt again?

    Daniel Henderson Reply

    @jagsfanrick is sum body else producing “a scary 9 scks on there own?” 😂

    jagsfanrick Reply

    @Daniel Henderson 29 sacks. Dude isn’t anything special. Decent but not great like Watt.

    Daniel Henderson Reply

    @jagsfanrick I didn’t say he was better than Watt I said who else the Texans got that’s gonna produce if Watt is hurt. So far Clowney been ballin’

    @jagsfanrick he’s not really a sack machine. his impact in our run game is undeniably special. you must not watch the game properly smh.

I wouldn’t mind keeping Gordon cause he’s a td machine but I say trade him cause we probably can’t afford what he’s asking for make sure we get something good out of it and let Jackson and Ekeler fight for the starting job I’m confident both guys can be very productive with more snaps

    Daniel Henderson Reply

    I think if they don’t signed Gordon it’s gonna be Eckler and Jackson by committee.

    DAGO 619 CALI FACTOR Reply

    @Daniel Henderson Ekeler and Javkson will be explosive

Evan Kaye Reply

Florio has been doing a great job solo

See, I think they need one more playoff round, allowing for two more WC teams to compete in the postseason. Keep the 16 game/17 week season. There would be the 4 division winners, and 4 wildcard teams. The 4 division winners get one week off during this all wildcard team playoff round. The winners would advance to play the 3 and 4 teams, and this means another week off for the 1 and 2 seeds. Take away one preseason game, in order to accomplish this, and expand the roster allowance for every team, to 60 active players.

    Agreed

    My Titans would be in the playoffs a lot if that was the case

    Andrew Lane Reply

    If you can’t make the playoffs the way it is now you don’t need to be there

    Ibraheem Rao Reply

    @Andrew Lane agree more playoff spots would allow teams with losing records in

Maurice Young Reply

Just have 3 preseason games and 17 reg season games for now

    Can’t believe someone in the world was waiting for it…

    @Yoh. A best show out there. How couldn’t yah.

Ibraheem Rao Reply

Go ahead Melvin holdout and Philip and the offense won’t miss a beat.

    michael king Reply

    true ekeler fits in pretty nice with their schemes too

    Bashar Al-Assad Reply

    They going to have to change the gameplan a bit because ekler is more of a complementary back than a 3 down back

Ibraheem Rao Reply

No load management in the NFL

Proteus Augustus Reply

They want 18 games they’re gonna have to raise the salary cap and player count. I mean those guys take a beaten as it is. I don’t want to see playoff teams hobbling into the playoff.

    Tom Hagen Reply

    I haven’t thought of that but it does make plenty of sense to expand the roster with the schedule.

    da314pcdon Reply

    @Tom Hagen I think they should shorten the season by 2 games. The playoffs are becoming worse because so many guys are banged up.

    Tom Hagen Reply

    @da314pcdon , I disagree, and there is certainly no way the regular season will get shortened, virtually all market forces are working to keep the NFL the season the same or larger.

    da314pcdon Reply

    @Tom Hagen no I agree that it wont, but the last 3 years the playoffs have been brutal, since everyone is hurt…

Marcus Verheyen Reply

players: no franchise tag, raise vet minimum to 5mil, raise the salary cap to 250 million, 65-75 player roster
nfl: 18 games + expanded playoffs

idk about you but that seems fair to me

    JUDALATION gamestrodamous Reply

    They getting that without 18 games

Vipers Venom Reply

Imo, there should be NO games played outside The U.S.

Sanctum Sanctorum Reply

Albert Finney not Brooks!

Ice Burn Reply

Owners want 18 season games for all those millions they have to pay these over paid NFL players.

    da314pcdon Reply

    overpaid? no underpaid because of the salary cap.. you have no idea how capitalism works in this country..

    Ice Burn Reply

    da314pcdon So you think they should just keep making millions and more millions increasing each year? STFU, it’s getting ridiculous.

    da314pcdon Reply

    @Ice Burn They keep making more because they generate more. It’s how capitalism works. You have the ability to make as much money as the market dictates.

JUDALATION gamestrodamous Reply

Not happening…

QuestionableIdentity Reply

What a fantastic segment. Well done Florio

Lowkey asab Reply

Ekeler and Jackson can replace Gordon they are supper under rated. Jackson is fast and explosive and ekeler reminds me of Darren Sproles

Christopher Campbell Reply

The integrity of records will go away if you expand games

Chris Ross Reply

Please no more games, I’d rather there not be more injuries

Colt 45 Reply

Keep the season the same length, quality over quantity. Also injuries will pile up more often and if that’s say Aaron Rodgers rules will change. Dont tell me the roughing the passer wasn’t because of ratings over losing Rodgers.

Colt 45 Reply

I’m not watching two of the games if they increase it to 18. Just so they don’t make money on it
