Lobster? At a buffet? Only lobster i saw at a buffet was a fancy asian one in the chicago burbs, and that was only on the weekend, and they would only put out like 10 small lobsters at a time and when they ran out you'd have to wait another 15 mins for more. And you were limited to 1 per visit, although it seemed like most people who lined up were repeats...

Lot of free agent action this week. Bears signed allen robinson from the jags, trey burke (eagles TE) and taylor gabriel (WR falcons). They transformed their pass catching group from maybe league worst to respectable in a couple days. ARob is an injury question coming off a torn acl, but he injured it in the first game of the past season so he should have made good progress with healing by now. Gabriel is the speedster from atlanta who should stretch the field for the bears. Burke didnt get much playing time behind maybe the leagues best TE in zach ertz but should be the #1 TE for chicago.

Minnesota got kirk cousins, and all 3 of their previous qb's signed elsewhere (case keenum with the broncos, sam bradford with arizona, and teddy with the jets, supposedly).
They went 13-3 last year with keenum (mostly - bradford played 1.5 games) starting. I think they're good for another 13 wins with cousins at qb, assuming they have good injury luck and dalvin cook comes back healthy. All their starters are under contract till 2019, when they probably have to let players leave for salary cap reasons.

Boston Lobster feast in Orlando has all you can eat lobster shrimp oysters and lots more for like $48.
Nautical lodge in Conn has a unbelievable buffet with lobster and everything else you could want but its like $90

the vikings must really believe in their D', putting all their eggs in one basket like that
we will see how cousins plays, hes relatively durable and should do better in min than he did in washington
jets also made a one year offer to mccown in addition to signing bridgewater, so they have some backup in case bridgewater isnt over the injury (actually i imagine mccown to start and bridgewater to be a project bepending on his health)
im still wondering if they go after a qb in the draft
i couldent believe the cards signed bradford
/we are looking at bradford, wilson, goff and garapaolow being your nfc west starters folks
with so much going on in the free agent market right now its going to be an interesting off season for sure
still a few big names left out there but things are moving fast and its hard to keep up
/it looks like the fins are letting suh go and tyran mathews could be going to the texans

yeah most lobster buffets here in so cal are at the casinos or the really expensive places
most chineese buffets in the area offer snow crab legs here on weeeknds but you end up paying at least $20-$25 (instead of the normal $12-15) but i crush on the crab legs and always feel like i get my moneys worth

will ahve to stay tuned to see how things shake out this off season, but so far its been really interesting

I am not checking now but I am sure some are not as disapointed as I am on departures. I know it has worked so far, but not this time and maybe time for a new strategy. AKA to whoever the cheap bastard that formerly seemed like a genius, pay to keep good players already. I want to tip him upside down and shake all the nickels dimes and pennies out of his greedy pockets to say the least over this, along with thoughts of breaking a pinyata or whatever in the image of him with a stick. If it is the "him" I am thinking of, he supposedly has done a lot for the team but I think the days of luck of the less than likely players making the difference and it not being well luck or amazing unlikelihood are over and reality is rearing its ugly head. We must find a new way forward in this new age. Go 2018 Patriots!

IDK if you are talking about the Pat's, but they as well as 90% of all the teams in the NFL aren't being cheap.
There is a salary cap that you can only twist and bend so much. If you back load contracts at some point it catches up. Then you either rework contract or release them...(see Seattle) You have to field an entire team and still leave hopefully 10 mil for in season pickups. Thats where people like Belichick know how to tell who they absolutely need, who they would like to keep and who they can let go.

A perfect example is Deon Lewis..sure Bill wanted him here but not at 6 + mil a year for an undersized pass catching running back. Instead White takes that job and if he wants another cheap alternative he can bring in Danny Woodhead (just released) for next to nothing. While the morons in Tenn pay him 20 mil for 3 years 11.5 guaranteed. 8th highest rb in the league lol.

Hmm, those buffets sound unbelievable. Pricey but worth it. I'd be tempted to bring some ziplocs in, take a few lobster tails home. For the 'dogs', y'know... Puppies gotta eat too.

I didnt realize compensatory picks came in the next draft, not the current draft. Those picks arent going to help the pats this year, unless they trade them (which i think teams can trade compensatory picks now).
Even though brady is coming off an mvp year, realistically he has 2-3 more good years left, u have to take advantage of that championship window now, not years from now...

How'd u like the golden corral, Pop? Tasty and filling? Anything disgusting (people or food) that made you rethink your direction in life?
Most chinese buffet crab legs are these tiny little things that you have to work 10 mins on to get a small morsel of meat. I'll pass...

Vikings have never won a superbowl even though theyve had some pretty good teams over the decades. They have a championship caliber defense and offense, just need an elite QB as the final piece i guess. Maybe kirk isnt elite, but he was the best qb out there. Plus the taxpayers are footing the bill for a new stadium, cant disappoint your fans by playing it safe...

I hear Suh might sign with the patriots for a minimum deal, since he banked $60mil from the dolphins over the last 3 years. He doesnt put up a lot of tackle or sack numbers, but he would definitely upgrade that def line.

This is why the pats couldnt afford to keep solder, dion, amendola, butler. Doesnt matter how profitable a team is, the patriots are under the same salary cap that small market teams like jacksonville and charlotte. Though they have a little bit of an advantage with brady playing for 8-10M less than he should be making.
I'd also argue that they should save 10M cap room for the draft picks theyll make next month...
