A video surfaced on Facebook Sunday night that appears to show Dolphins offensive line coach Chris Foerster snorting a powdery white substance before meetings. On Monday, Foerster resigned.
The Dolphins were reported to have been investigating the video last night and were able to conclude that Foerster was in the video, and in the wrong.
Foerster released a statement, via ESPN’s Adam Schefter:
The Packers were 6.5-point favorites over the Saints last week in an early line available at the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas. When the Westgate reposted the line Sunday night, after Aaron Rodgers’ injury, New Orleans was a 3.5-point favorite.
When Rodgers plays, the Packers are the one team in the NFC with a quarterback great enough for the team to contend without much help from the defense and/or conventional running game. With Rodgers out, we stacked all 16 NFC teams into one of four groupings in what was already looking like a pretty wide-open conference.
“This is as open as I can remember it in a lot of years, because it is hard to say who the top one or two teams are in the conference,” an evaluator said. “Usually, you would put the Packers and someone else — Seattle, maybe — that you feel strongly about. You just don’t feel as strongly about those teams this year.”
We start with the leading contenders, including three that have been to the Super Bowl recently with many of the same key players in place, including quarterbacks who have shown they can win playoff games with sufficient support. Every one of these teams is flawed enough to trade places with teams below them, which is why this NFC race will be a difficult one to handicap.
