Top 10 NFL draft order (based on wins and full season SOS)— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) October 27, 2019
Updating the best-ever total DVOA tables, by 7 games and by 8 games. The Patriots take a big tumble this week by losing a bit in all three phases. The 49ers move way up from a week ago. So both end up No. 8 all-time. #GoNiners #GoPats pic.twitter.com/nWFS4BziIm— Aaron Schatz (@FO_ASchatz) October 28, 2019

The Redskins have flipped the script and are reportedly gauging teams' interest in Trent Williams. https://t.co/4Pm7CecXjJ— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) October 28, 2019
So wait..let me see if I have this right...Now, as in just now, as in today - the #Redskins are finally open to trading Trent Williams? Were they waiting for Christmas? Did u really think Trent wanted to be here? Did u not realize weeks ago that if he came back it's a debacle?— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) October 28, 2019
The Redskins have begun the process of ascertaining interest across the league. And I'm told the asking price, for right now (and this is obviously subject to change), is a first-round pick. https://t.co/gtkbT3Afum— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) October 28, 2019
Feels like a leak to appease fans. When it doesn't happen they can say at least we tried. https://t.co/4OhMqGkHqX— Brian D. (@freshxdesign) October 28, 2019
Adam Schefter is saying on ESPN's Monday Night Countdown that he doesn't think a trade for Trent Williams happens...but you never know— Mark Tyler(Hogs Haven) (@Tiller56) October 28, 2019
Heard from a DC source about possible trades beyond Trent Williams, who has been trying to get out since the spring. I get the sense they'd listen on Ryan Kerrigan and others (Josh Norman would be salary dump/little in return) beyond just Williams— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) October 28, 2019
In addition to LT Trent Williams, the #Redskins are calling around trying to trade CB Josh Norman, per sources. Tough to get value right now: Norman is due almost $6 million for the rest of this season and hasn't been practicing because of thigh and hand injuries.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) October 28, 2019
In addition to Trent, Norman & Kerrigan, #Redskins should be open to trading AP, Moses & Scherff - if they truly don't wanna pay him the $14M-$15M/yr he wants. 2020 tag will increase his leverage, & it's debatable whether he - or any "gaaarrrd" as Jay said - should get massive $.— Al Galdi (@AlGaldi) October 28, 2019
Surprising no one, the Redskins operate with a complete disconnect to their reality.https://t.co/CGSVzaUY5b— NBC Sports Redskins (@NBCSRedskins) October 28, 2019
The #Redskins didn't want to set a bad precedent & take the dead $ cap hit, bypassing the savings but my guess is they were stubbornly hopeful that he would cave, change mind or be happy. Plus they didn't want to reward w/ get out of football jail free card. https://t.co/fsaq1RiJWF— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) October 28, 2019
I wonder what Ryan really thinks inside. He's such a good guy, he would never show it but the frustration and lack of sustainable direction has to be killing him. https://t.co/C0KZo7PvPC— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) October 27, 2019

Bill Callahan said Case Keenum remains in the concussion protocol. He did not practice today.— John Keim (@john_keim) October 28, 2019
Just saw Case Keenum (concussion) didn't practice today. Dwayne Haskins would start if Keenum can't. Odd considering Skins keep saying he is not ready to start and Colt McCoy on the roster. Mixed signals.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) October 28, 2019
Callahan is sticking with the “best chance to win” and “Case earned the right to be our starter” lines.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 28, 2019
This was following up on the Rodgers comparison sitting behind Favre. He just stuck to the script.
Dwayne Haskins stuck around after practice and he was throwing to a receiver. Couldn’t tell who it was; (wasn’t McLaurin; from a couple football fields away it’s hard to tell but TM was spotted in locker room)— John Keim (@john_keim) October 28, 2019
The Redskins now have practice field scoreboards at the team facility pic.twitter.com/8W1QYX8ZyA— Les Carpenter (@Lescarpenter) October 28, 2019
If AP told Dwayne this, I’m sure it was done in an encouraging way. (Not disputing Mike, just adding context)— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 27, 2019
Will add this too - other teammates have told him the same thing in the same way to encourage him. Like dude. C’mon. You got this. Leave no stone unturned. https://t.co/0IPgLB7CXW

Wtf??? He was the 6th pick in the draft— Guille Laner (@guillesla) October 28, 2019
This is one of the more shocking trade partners I could have imagined. The Jets risk sending a high potential player to the Giants, and the Giants send what is likely a top-70 draft pick to the Jets for 10 games of mediocre IDL play in a lost season? Bizarre. https://t.co/XS4BA6MGsP— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) October 28, 2019
More details: The 2021 5th-round pick that the Giants are trading to the Jets for Leonard Williams becomes a 4th-round pick if he signs a contract extension before the start of the league year, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 28, 2019
Jets are paying $4 million of Williams’ $6 million salary this season.
Remember when we all thought the #Jets got the "steal of the draft" when they got Leonard Williams at 6?— Kimberley A. Martin (@ByKimberleyA) October 28, 2019
Ultimately the failure that is the #Jets goes back to ownership. They allowed the last GM to effectively pick this team and waste draft capital and cap space. Also didnt intervene with this Osemele mess which is going to be a nightmare for them in FA.— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) October 27, 2019
Uh, the Giants are 2-6 and Leonard Williams is a free agent at the end of the year at a position where they've already invested heavy draft capital. What on earth is the point of this? https://t.co/Z3qNqXWYSz— Aaron Schatz (@FO_ASchatz) October 28, 2019
The Bills are 5-2 and have outscored their opponents by 12 points.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) October 27, 2019
The Colts are 5-2 and have outscored their opponents by 7 points.
Still sorting this out in my head...— Roberto Shenanigans (@Rob_Shenanigans) October 27, 2019
The Browns need 2 TDs in 7 minutes to tie the game, which is why Freddie said he went for it on 4th & 16 on their own 19 yard-line.
But on their very next possession on 4th & only 6 on NE's 30 yard-line, Freddie kicks a FG. pic.twitter.com/lr3GapX7ie
Freddie was asked about this in his post-game presser.— Roberto Shenanigans (@Rob_Shenanigans) October 28, 2019
At first he sounds adamant that he did not intentionally false start. But in response to a follow-up question he point blank says "I didn't want to use the time out" which seemingly confirms Wolfson report above.
I'm lost?? pic.twitter.com/fZ7XWlOptK
During Baker Mayfield's post-game press conference, on 3 separate occasions he specifically said that "discipline and accountability" are the main problem with this team.— Roberto Shenanigans (@Rob_Shenanigans) October 28, 2019

Aren't these 2 words typically used when talking about a head coach? pic.twitter.com/Z0FRTvd6CA
The #Texans may have lost star DE JJ Watt to a serious injury. Source said the fear is that Watt suffered a torn pec, which would knock him out for the season. He’ll have an MRI to determine the full extent of the issue.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 27, 2019
This game can be beautiful and it can also be brutal. Absolutely gutted that I won’t be able to finish the season with my guys and give the fans what they deserve. I truly love this game and can’t stand letting you guys down. Thank you for all of the thoughts & well-wishes.— JJ Watt (@JJWatt) October 28, 2019
This pic is why it’s smart to draft a QB every year, whether you necessarily need one or not. https://t.co/3YWyeijpNP— Jim Nagy (@JimNagy_SB) October 28, 2019

"If the Patriots offense had not scored a touchdown this year, their record would STILL be 4-2-1. That's how much defense has scored. As well as their special teams" -- Scott Hanson, NFL Network— George Carmi (@Gcarmi21) October 27, 2019
You guys remember when the Texans had a healthy offensive line three weeks ago and they weren't allowing any pressure at all?— Brett Kollmann (@BrettKollmann) October 27, 2019
Those were good times.
The Year 2 QBs:— Mike Tanier (@MikeTanier) October 28, 2019
Baker Mayfield: in a toxic codependency with his team.
Sam Darnold: trapped in a Saw-like scenario.
Josh Allen: destined to be Tall Mariota.
Josh Rosen: riding the Paxton Lynch express.
Lamar Jackson: Looking swell.
Last night’s ratings ...— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) October 28, 2019

Football game was also 12 minutes shorter than the baseball game.
The umpiring behind home plate tonight has been atrocious considering the stakes.— Craig Hoffman (@CraigHoffman) October 28, 2019
These are supposed to be the best of the best. This isn’t good enough. A championship series CANNOT have this kind of low quality and inconsistency. #StayInTheFight
Another reiteration that the Nats are not losing because of the umps. The Astros are better and have been better.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) October 28, 2019
But 2 things are true. Astros are better and the best majority of missed calls have benefited them. That's not a fat guy from DC opining. That is fact. Information.
Didn't Max Scherzer have something similar to this two years ago? Not trying to be a doctor without facts here but this is freaky weird.— Chris Russell (@Russellmania621) October 27, 2019
Scherzer said his back issues were more on the lower part of the back: "This is more on the top part of the neck. It's more of the nerve irritation."— Matthew Paras (@Matthew_Paras) October 27, 2019
