josh mcdaniels confirmed as new head coach of the indianapolis colts. instead of being behind belichick he can spend some time behind his old qbs coach instead.

lol rooney rule

mookieproof, Tuesday, 6 February 2018 17:23 (one year ago) link


i mean, outside of the process itself, ok josh is one of the most qualified hc candidates out there, but things like mike vrabel hire at ten, and greg olson at oak too, have not been inspiring appointments in this regard. coordinator level is the real ugly scene that makes the hc level such a problem. i believe i am correct in saying there is 1 black oc in the whole nfl. i think flores at ne will make it around 10 black dcs but cmon, this shit is horrendous.

i'm sure this is already being speculated but first thing i think is that bill told him this is going to be his last year. i did see that luck supposedly needs more surgery on his shoulder tho, and that might've been enough to foul it.

Jimmy G has started less than 10 games in the NFL and now has two Super Bowl rings and the biggest contract in NFL history. A true inspiration to those that let their partners do all of the work on group projects

3rd highest cap hit for 2018 to be precise but yeah. not sure what to make of him tbh, depending on who you ask or what stats you use he's either one of the most effective wrs in the league or he holds the entire offense back. he always looks kind of medium to me.

very curious to see what miami does with him eventually. something dumb, probably

Roberto Spiralli, Friday, 23 February 2018 00:25 (one year ago) link

So anyone have any opinion on the idea that the Vikings are going to clear the decks of QBs to go after Kurt Cousins? I was thinking prevailing belief was that Denver was his destination.

earlnash, Wednesday, 28 February 2018 02:41 (one year ago) link

i think it's weird there isn't one of those qbs that they like. what's wrong with keenum?

Mordy, Wednesday, 28 February 2018 03:02 (one year ago) link

not sure there is a huge delta between the vikes qbs and cousins. i wonder what kind of money the vikes guys are angling for. a smart qb-needy team could hold out to see who is the last man standing there and get a few years of a serviceable qb for cut rate.

Roberto Spiralli, Wednesday, 28 February 2018 03:24 (one year ago) link

feel like keenum will have to put up several seasons of brees-like numbers before people stop thinking he's too $hort

love the dude, always respected his game and was happy when he joined the jets two years ago. he still had moments last year, but all those nagging injuries must've added up.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the final four teams expected to be in the running for his services are the Broncos, Cardinals, Jets, and Vikings.

Let's see.

Jets -- ANY dude that willing walks into that club has to know in the end, it won't work out. Forget it Kirk, it's the Jets.

Cardinals - They lost for nearly 40 years and had a couple of decent teams. Probably the lowest pressure place to go.

Vikings -- They are the best team and last year was very close. Can they repeat that and take that next step, it's a hard thing to do. Will they be setting fire to the future by signing such an expensive player. I'd say this team would be the highest pressure to join as really anything less than getting to a Superbowl is a failure next year.

Broncos - They still have quite a bit of talent and the club has been good about finding players. While improvement would be expected, would not be expected to 'win it all' as much as be in the playoff discussions.

summary: McCarthy was an unimaginative coach who never adapted and checked out when the team started losing, Rodgers is a diva who randomly puts people in the doghouse, the front office was obsessed with youth and let talented players walk, rookie receivers were caught between listening to Rodgers and listening to the coaching staff, everyone thinks they should have won 5 Super Bowls...sound about right?

"Snyder, 54, hasn’t lived up to that promise. Under his leadership, the Redskins have had four times as many head coaches (8) as playoff wins (2). Splashy free agent signings haven’t produced victories — Washington is 139-180 since Snyder bought the team — and one of the more loyal fan bases in professional sports has been gradually driven away."

He could count on having an empty seat next to him on any team flight, due to his ritual of watching hardcore pornography on his portable DVD player, according to those sources. On one occasion, an equipment manager tasked with delivering gear to lockers after hours walked in on Winslow masturbating at his locker, two seats away from the entrance, according to two team officials familiar with the incident.

When pornography became widely available on mobile phones, he often watched it on his smartphone during meetings, the two former teammates said (nowadays, such sites would typically be blocked by the building WiFi). Teammates begged out of shared hotel room assignments with Winslow because he watched pornography and masturbated openly, with no regard for who was in the room, a teammate and an official said.

Later on in his career, after being sent to Tampa Bay via trade, Winslow acquired a life-sized silicone mold of a woman’s torso—complete with vagina and anus—to bring with him on road trips, according to one former assistant coach.

what does the jimmy buffett part mean then? that there are people who get angry when non-buffett fans enjoy boat rides (and why? bc they think buffett is the patron saint of boats?), where boat rides are the fun time that giants fans hate? but surely the buffett fans love the boat rides they just (if i understand the sentence correctly) just hate non-buffett fans enjoying them??

After the game, Luck announced the retirement decision during an impromptu news conference; he said an official announcement wasn't planned until Sunday afternoon but changed course once news broke during the preseason game.

"I've been stuck in this process," he said, stopping several times to overcome his emotions. "I haven't been able to live the life I want to live. It's taken the joy out of this game ... the only way forward for me is to remove myself from football."

I tend to believe that almost anyone who plays in the NFL is 100% committed to the sport so I'm guessing this really was the only option for him. Poor guy, hope he got paid and gets to pursue his other dreams now. Funny to think the NFL's 'talent drain' problem first seemed to come to light around the time when Luck & RG3 got drafted, when the word was "finally we are going to have some great young QBs again"...this is pretty much the worst possible scenario for the NFL

frogbs, Monday, 26 August 2019 15:01 (four months ago) link

there's a couple more generational prospects coming up the pipeline in the next couple years, but yeah, i guess the nfl can't really count on them to define their league for 15 years anymore.

jakey mo collier (voodoo chili), Monday, 26 August 2019 15:18 (four months ago) link

there are a lot of talented young QBs right now tho - watson, mahomes, wentz, goff, newton, cousins, jackson, mayfield, maybe winston? ok some question marks around some of those guys but a few of those could be good to all time greats depending on how their careers go.
