NFL Lockout last night.

That's hilarious.

Andrew Luck looked like the real deal yesterday.

Nice character win for Cam Newton yesterday. No gaudy stats, covered in turf and his own blood, but he looked great. And where the fuck has this Carolina defense been? They kept Griffin III on his ass all day long.

Luck was ridiculous. 200+ yards and a touchdown just on third down.

Still, I got to see Reggie press the Madden Juke button again.

Man, what a variety of moves. It's plays like that which make it understandable why he was selected 2nd overall. The unfortunate thing has been that plays like that were few and far between for the majority of his career.

It's not even the first time he's done it for us this season, even though he's having a quieter time than last year.

Maybe what it took was a team genuinely committing to him as the primary back, rather than in New Orleans, where he seemed to be a (not so) secret weapon, to augment the actual back.

Either that or getting away from Kim Kardashian.

... if so will he move to Dallas after his suspension ends?

Payton is a good young coach with a bright future and a love of the game. The only reason he would go to Dallas is for money; he has a much better chance to win in his current situation.

The Dallas job is a better fit for an established coach who wants to cash in financially for a few years before retiring.

That first .gif of Bush reminds me of Barry Sanders.
