Aaron Hernandez had a ton of issues. Did he have some sort of CTE? Probably. Did it cause him to make all of the terrible life choices he did? Unlikely. It was also well-known that his family gained financial gain by him killing himself as opposed to him being alive, so he had other motivations for killing himself.

I actually find it kind of sick that this is even a topic.
It's a CTE/football story. Not an Aaron Hernandez murderer story.

A guy who was young and had a short football career had an advanced case of CTE. That's the story.

Doesn't sound good

He never got an extension did he from Vikes? So this has major financial implications for him if it is serious

Has Bridgewater been cleared to play yet?

There was talk of Teddy being close during preseason but he's on the PUP list now so who knows where he's at. He can't return until week 7 even if everything goes perfectly for him.

defense is still good enough to carry them to a 8-8 or 7-9 record.

Puts a lot more pressure on Cook and the running game though with Keenum as your QB.

They're done if Bradford misses anymore than 3 more games.

Not really

The NFC North is not that formidable (Det and GB are both flawed)

vs Bucs
vs Lions
@ Bears
vs Packers
vs Ravens
@ Browns
bye
@ Redskins
vs Rams
@ Lions
@ Falcons
@ Panthers
vs Bengals
@ Packers
@ Bears

Bolded = Probably wins or Vikes should be favored
Underlined = Toss ups that Vikes can win a few of

Still should be 7-10 win team so playoffs are still possible

We are still winning the division lol. Last year everyone counted out Green Bay and then we ran the table. OL is garbage but I am never counting out the team with AR12 leading the charge.

This story has angered a big segment of Cowboys fans who still think Dez is the best in the league.

Dez Bryant no longer elite

Quote:
Game film, traditional statistics and quantitative data all suggest Bryant is a player on the decline with an increasingly limited game. After posting three straight seasons of 1,200-plus yards and totaling 41 touchdowns from 2012 through '14, Bryant hasn't come close to the 1,000-yard mark in either of the past two years, with injuries seemingly robbing him of the explosiveness that once made him a dominant playmaker on the outside.
Quote:
This coincides with the information I received from our Next Gen Stats team here at NFL Media. The Cowboys' WR1 averaged just 1.82 yards of separation at the target in 2016, which was well below the NFL average of 2.70 yards. Through the first two weeks of this season, Bryant's separation number has dipped to 1.68 yards at the target, compared to the league average of 2.88. With Bryant struggling to come down with tight-window targets (targets with less than 1 yard of separation from the defender) in 2017 -- the Cowboys receiver has only hauled in one of nine tight-window targets -- it is becoming tougher for Dallas to feed its WR1.

He hasn't been elite since 2014, and its like as soon as he signed his big contract in March 2015 his play just went downhill. The top 5 is firmly entrenched as OBJ, Brown, Jones, AJ Green & Mike Evans (or something along those lines, also thats not in order).

The die-hard 'Boys fans I know have already transitioned from Dez to Zeke anyhow, they know he's old news.

Turns out Sam Bradford 'only' has a bone bruise, no structural damage.

If I am Minny, I probably keep him out the next 2 games (Lions and Bears) and hope you go 1-1.

I am not sure what is worse this news or the ending of the game today.

I'll go with the Caldwell deal as the loss today is only one disappointment where this Caldwell deal will lead to many, many disappointments.

I am not sure what the Lions did in a past life to deserve the crap we have to go through but it is tough being a fan of theirs, especially having zero ties to the city and just randomly choosing them as a stupid kid.
