“You can say that and expect me to jump if it is not the right situation for me,” Stanton said. “It doesn’t matter what the dynamic was. You are not going to force me to do anything, regardless.
“It was said so it was definitely a thought of something that I was going to have to deal with.”
The Jaguars had been playing with fire with their slow starts and some mistakes from Blake Bortles. And with Leonard Fournette shut down, it caught up to them in Arizona. “Sacksonville” can’t afford to have off games or lapses when that happens.
The Seahawks got through an expected grind in San Francisco coming off a short week. As they’ve been rolling on the road of late, they need to set things right at home. They go as Russell Wilson goes, but it would helpful to have someone occasionally run the ball well who is not the quarterback.
The Ravens crushed another opponent at home in prime time on Monday, as things continue to break in their favor to nail down an AFC wild-card spot. Their schedule is cake beyond a Week 14 rematch with the Steelers.
At any point in those six years he could get hurt or run into some other career-altering obstacle, so he carries the risk all the way through those six years. But if he’d waited just two years he could have come as an unrestricted free agent, and most likely scored a contract guaranteeing him $200 million or more. (In the meantime, he’d have been paid more in Japan than he will make in his first years with the Angels.) My own estimate is he probably cost himself around $90 million, and with a lot more risk.
Predicting how entertaining a game will be is harder (and more foolhardy) than picking who wins, but circumstances indicate that this is the most unwatchable game of the weekend. The four quarterbacks likely in play: Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler, Matt Moore and Jay Cutler. Their seasons are in the toilet for legit reasons. The Broncos will be without the suspended Aqib “Two Chains” Talib, but against this team, does it really matter?
