Happy Monday Youth Marcus Epps Jersey
, everyone!I’m sitting here watching the end of the AFCCG as I write this, soknew who it would be beforehand, didn’t we?). Super Bowl LIII will be held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium (how many of those stadiums are there now?) in Atlanta in just under two weeks, as the Rams will face off against the Patriots (to be determined). Best of luck to the Rams.Around the DN since our last open thread:From Chris, Pete Morelli has announced his retirement from officiating the NFL. About a decade too late, if you ask me. Yes, I’m still bitter.Kyle Rudolph won the charity portion of the Walter Payton Man of the Year Challenge, per Chris.Aldrick Robinson would like to return to the purple and gold next season.Vikings news from other sources and news from around the rest of the NFL:At Vikings.com, they recap the Shrine game, where the West edged the East by 4, and Lindsey Young recaps the 2018 Vikings special teams units,From NBC Sports, the NFL will publicly admit that the refs missed one call in the Saints-Rams game. I’ll withhold comment for the comments section. Needless to say Womens Marcus Epps Jersey
, I’m not shedding tears, it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving team. I actually had a cigar, a fine cigar, and enjoyed it with a smile on my face.CBS Sports has a recap of the NFC Championship game between the Rams and the Saints.And it finally ended. From the Sporting News, here’s a recap of the Chiefs-Patriots game.g News, We come to today’s media selection:Here’s a little mix that seems appropriate, for some reason. There might be a NSFW word or two in there, I really couldn’t understand some of the gibberish. I just played it for the laughter.Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:No discussion of politics or religionNo feeding of the trollsThis isn’t a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the doorKeep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie Ameer Abdullah Jersey

Belly up and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, and try the GOAT’s milk. The true GOAT is long retired, this one is just a stand-in. Thanksgiving ends with the Saints hosting the Falcons on NBC, a game that will become the latest chapter in quarterback Drew Brees‘ run for his first-ever league MVP award.And it’s worth pointing out, with Brees playing better than ever, that anyone could have signed him in March.Some (me) argued that the Vikings, who witnessed Brees’ abilities via his efforts to lead the Saints back from a 17-0 deficit in the playoffs, should have made Brees an offer he couldn’t refuse. If, after all, Kirk Cousins is worth $28 million per year Danielle Hunter Jersey
, what is Brees worth?Sure, Brees benefits from the presence of coach Sean Payton and teammates like running back Alvin Kamara, running back Mark Ingram, and receiver Michael Thomas. But Brees has proven that he’s a rare talent, and it’s safe to say that the Vikings (who have plenty of weapons, too) would be better than 5-4-1 right now with Brees. Other teams that have underachieved with less-than-franchise quarterbacks also would be doing better with Brees.What if, for example, the Jaguars had pulled the plug on Blake Bortles and gone all in with Brees? What if the Broncos had opted to pay whatever they needed to pay to get Brees?Any team that was looking for a quarterback should have been looking at Brees, who wasn’t inclined to leave New Orleans but who surely would have had a number to which he couldn’t have said no. It never came to that, possibly due to fears that Brees’ inevitable decline could have come this season.If definitely hasn’t. And he looks like a guy who could keep playing as long as he wants to play. As the Saints play deep into January, plenty of other teams who are waiting for next year will be wishing Brees had been playing for them.
