    That is exactly what I was thinking. I think Tampa is the only game we can win. Denver, I bet they bring their best for this one. I didn’t like VJ but he knows our team and will be prepared. Prepared better than Gase anyways which isn’t hard.

    The Chris Hogan one in addition to Welker was a what are they doing moment. Chris 7/11 cause he is always open and we decided to get rid of him :)

    That is like Buddy Ryan getting rid of Chris Carter cause all he does is catch TD's.

    The Dolphins traded a running back who they picked near the end of round 5 IIRC. The Cheats traded a QB that they got late in the 2nd for another 2nd which should be a much higher pick. So as long as the 49ers continue to honk bobo and the Eagles continue to win, they probably got the better deal.
    Myself, I don't really give a **** about what that franchise does because they cheat and are therefore not a part of my NFL. However, I'm still not a fan of trading Ajayi even though he has a ticking time bomb in his knee. My reason is that I simply am running out of entertaining players to watch on this offense. But at least we get something for him, which would not be the case in a couple of years and this team is not going to win a SB in the next couple of years anyway. Of course I don't think they will win one with this trade either so I guess it's a moot point for me.

    raiders W they have injures aren't playing like they did last year
    carolina W traded kelvin cam is being cam
    Tampa W could go either way, they are a young team but should be a W
    NE W usually always split with NE and they actually have a worse home record over the long haul then their away
    denver W they suck
    NE L not good enough to beat them twice
    buffalo, L
    KC L
    Buffalo W usually always split our division.

    6-3 over next 9.

    Let's be honest with ourselves... The Eagles are good, so it is essentially a 5th round pick.

    It is ridiculous that we are using the excuse that we question the long term sustainable success of Ajayi. I would see nothing wrong with trading a 5th round pick to rent a player for a year or two especially knowing his production. Even if he was a part-time player, he is still worth it.

    Well away from here
    Ajayi has had knee problems since college which caused him to slip in the draft to begin with.

    He doesn't practice during the week at all to help mitigate the damage being done to his knee.

    He has appeared slower this season as compared to last. And to top it off, he crossed a line you just can't cross - which I fairly sure you're not aware of as that info is not readily available. Not being snarky with that statement in any way. Just that it is likely you're not privy to that info.

    Ajayi had issues - personality wise that along with his well known knee issues signaled he woul be gone more than he would stay. So on short we are not as inept as we may appear to you.

    His career will not be a long one unfortunately.

    So CAL
    Are you drunk? you do understand we just got shut out by Baltimore right? and now we have two so so rb and must you forget JAY CUTLER. 6-3 over the next 9 is asinine how this team is playing. you are entitled to your opinion, but based on "we always split" doesn't mean that's a re occurring thing buffalo is a legit contender and the pats are well the pats they can still score they cant stop anyone but good for them we cant score. I do agree the tampa and maybe Carolina are toss up games, but the raiders have too much on offense and I would be surprised to even be in the game at half, but Miami is known to win games they shouldn't.

    Last year, before he started, Ajayi was a "so so RB". Let's at lest let Drake et al play before we determine their worth or ability.

    His style fits Gase's offense better IMO. It's just that he will not play a full season if you give him a full load of carries. I also think this line needs a guy who breaks tackles better (like Ajayi) because they can't block consistently. I hope I'm wrong, but I really don't expect a whole lot on a consistent basis with Drake other than the odd home run, which will be fun to watch, for anybody who is still watching. Maybe Drake will be better at eluding those tacklers in the backfield, but usually when that happens it is over for any back.

    Oh, I would bet you any amount of money that we aren’t 6-3 over the next 9 games. You are seriously overestimating the worse offense in the NFL.
