The Redskins under Snyder have mostly been known for dysfunction and failure. In 21 years, Snyder has had seven full-time head coaches, four first-round quarterbacks, and only five playoff appearances. The Redskins’ .429 winning percentage in Snyder’s 21 years is sixth-worst in the NFL. They haven’t won a playoff game since 2005, haven’t been to the NFC Championship game since 1992, and, worst of all, are just 12-29 against the hated Cowboys under Snyder. … [Read more...] about Redskins appear to have hit rock bottom
Weird might just be a catch-all phrase to try to capture a personality that doesn’t necessarily fit into a box — and in some ways doesn’t fit the stereotype of a player in a Patriots uniform — but Van Noy embraces it. His worldview is broad. He was born in Reno. He was adopted by Kelly and Layne Van Noy at 4 months old. He lived in California for a while, then moved back to Nevada.

But since we did well, the public and the fans and the sports people were satisfied that we probably did the right thing in getting rid of Kenny.” … [Read more...] about Someone has to do it: Assessing the trade value of Mookie Betts
For now, it seems like Diggs is staying in Minnesota. It would be difficult for the Patriots to afford him, since he signed a five-year, $72 million contract with $40 million guaranteed this summer. That’s not a bad contract in general for someone of Diggs’s age (25) and skill, but the Patriots have less than $4 million in cap space and already have done a lot of maneuvering. It’s something to monitor because, clearly, there have been moments when Diggs has been unhappy in Minnesota this season and there’s no place like New England for the formerly disgruntled. However, the Vikings are currently 3-2 and, for now, seem to be making this one work. … [Read more...] about Who’s going to catch passes for the Patriots?
