If you were Cleveland's GM, would you bring RGIII back next season (?) or release him?

Too funny :)
Seriously odd how long the guy hung around with as extended a record of mediocrity as he'd built up. I mean, I like the guy - but the results have been nil - for a long time. Odd that he lasted this long.

Not torn.  Just strained.  They still don't know how long he will be out. 
Something new coming soon!

Thats a break for them....well, both I guess.
I dont follow the AFC playoff rankings a whole bunch, so surprised to see MIA's right in the hunt. They close on the road with NYJ's (winnable) ; BUF (winnable but they're not great in late season games in the cold) and NE at home - by which time the Pats might not have anything to play for. Be interesting to see how it pans out.  Big game coming up for BALT tonight......

Some people are pushing Jim Harbaugh for the new Rams coach. Dream? Delusion? Maybe. But it's a move that makes sense. At the least, they could try. And then Harbaugh would have a big decision to make.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2016/12/12/eric-dickerson-fishers-offense-sucks-rams-should-hire-harbaugh/

Now, this next article is by Mike Florio. Not a favorite of mine by any means, but what he writes makes sense. For a change.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2016/12/12/stan-kroenke-should-pay-whatever-it-takes-to-get-jim-harbaugh/

Any money paid to coaches is not part of the salary cap. And this team needs to show it's serious about winning. And overpaying for a star? The big bucks people in the area would understand completely. And the NFL would be drooling about a Giants/Rams SB. Or Rams/Patriots. Or Rams/Jets.  This is a team that needs to make a splash. And Harbaugh would be huge.

"Aaron Rodgers has made no secret of something over the past few years - he hopes that he will get a chance to play an NFL game in London someday. Back in the spring of 2015, when there were rumors that the Packers could end up playing the Jaguars across the pond this season, Rodgers was quoted as saying that playing a London game was on his "bucket list." Unfortunately for him, he will have to wait at least another year to do so.

I'm fine with the Packers playing a game in London, as long as we don't give up a home game to do it.

"The Giants received their punishment from the league Tuesday: a $150,000 fine for the team, $50,000 fine for McAdoo and having their 2017 fourth-round draft pick dropped to the end of the round."

"The NFL on Thursday notified its 32 teams of a spring development league that will operate in April 2017 and work with NFL veterans who do not have contracts."
