    but yeah, he's trying to overcompensate for his arm with his lower body and its led to some funky mechanics. his accuracy used to be his strong point, and on passes 10 yds or less, he still is very accurate to be fair. he starts to really struggle on anything more than that. i still cant believe SD didnt lynch him for that KC game when he literally fumbled the kneel down snap away lol...wow. that was after throwing a costly late game int...

    i mean if eli is inconsistent, rivers is flat awful then. because he will have these spurts of absolute mind numbingly dumb plays. that 4th and long vs the jets where he threw it into the 3rd row of the stands on their last possession lmao...some of the picks he threw last yr were of the most god awful variety ive ever seen its actually comical if one wants to youtube it and get a laugh. passes where hes staring down a DB and throws it at his numbers for the DB to pick 6 it lol hilarious...often thatd happen lol

    But they hope so. I can see Casino's, which are private businesses looking to make a profit (I still hate them though) but for the state to conduct lotteries is a disgrace. they prey on the very people they are sworn to represent, all in the name of political cowardice.
