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 (five years 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

Mordy, Thursday, 22 February 2018 23:07 (five years ago) link

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 (five years 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 (five years 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 (five years 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 (five years 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.

New Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon said he's not concerned if fans can't be in the stands when the NFL season begins because he has already dealt with that.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, playing games without fans in attendance is one possibility for the 2020 NFL season. During an interview ... Gordon said the past three years with the Chargers in Los Angeles prepared him for this.

Here is my understanding of the Aaron Rodgers situation: Rodgers and the #Packers have been negotiating a long-term contract offer. Theyโ€™ve been working on it for weeks. Rodgers has been unhappy at times during those moments. No deal is done, and heโ€™s not happy now.

If scumbags reception is like that in a preseason game in Jacksonville and it shook him up, good luck in Baltimore if that is his first game (and I kinda hope it is). I got a feeling more than a few refs are going to let a bit more contact than usual happen.
