    I don't even know who that guy is.

    In any case, I like the Saints as my "favorite" NFC team because I think they got fucked by Goodell and they have a nice, good coach and one of the best QBs the league has ever seen.

    BUT... I was sort of rooting for the Jets Sunday. Petty and that offense could not get anything going but the rest of the team played their asses off.

    The Jets this year have not been as bad as I had hoped.

You can't see value in a vacuum when a player does not provide full-time production."

    Agreed. Even I had them pegged somewhere around 2-14. All they need is experience. They've been in every game but two. Could easily be an 8-9 win team if they had held onto a couple 4th quarter leads.

    JuJu is the man, I don't think I've ever instantly loved a player as a rookie as much as I've loved him due to his personality, he's an awesome dude and player.

    Robby Anderson is good, but I don't think he'll ever be elite, I think he is in the "very good category". Id put him on the tier with guys like Davante Adams, Marvin Jones, etc.

    While we're talking about JuJu, I will say that the hit on Burfict a few weeks ago was absolutely unnecessary and over the top. I don't care what a guy's past is. The Steelers were providing him all night and he didn't bite, and responded by playing a hell of a (clean) game. No need to blind side him like that. That play is the biggest thing I have against JuJu this season. Shame on him.

    Burfict celebrated over Le'Veon when he had a torn ACL, cheap shot Antonio Brown and knocked him out of the playoffs, slammed Roethlisbergers shoulder into the ground after a sack and walked over him, kicked Roosevelt Nix, and that's just steelers players lol.. Burfict fully deserved that and had it coming a LONG TIME. The block wasn't even that bad, Michael Floyd did the same thing to Tony Lippet last year, only reason JuJu got suspended was the taunt, and if it was anyone else, he wouldn't have done it.

    Burfict is a massive douche, who cares.

    I loved watching JuJu at USC. Sad that going to the Steelers turned him into a dingleberry. I'm glad I don't have to watch much AFC North nonsense. I would have stopped watching football a long time ago.

    Perfect use of the word dingleberry.

    I get the anger about Burfict, but the Steelers have played along with that shitty brand of football for decades. Smash mouth football and JACKED UP HITS are over. It's time for 7 on 7 or something that won't cause so many former players to get CTE and kill themselves or others.

    I get that, and if the Steelers were to retaliate, it would be in one of those games, not when it was. Forget about the past. Because they decided to attack Burfict in this particular game, a game where Burfict hadn't done anything wrong and had been playing with a lot of passion, the Steelers are the ones that look like massive douches, not Burfict.

    "Playing with a lot of passion". Like Kicking the Steelers fullback? Leg whipping David Decastro? He was doing shit that game too. He fully deserved that hit, and he still looks like a massive douche. There is a reason a lot of players around the league were happy JuJu did it, including numerous former players. There isn't a "right time" to retaliate, when he deserves it damn near every game.
