the owners are mad at goodell for not making more of a stand against the protests, and jerry in particular is mad about his RB being penalized for domestic violence, so basically the only ethical things roger has done in his tenure, possibly his life.

Hey on the bright side "they" are at least not talking about the fact that the players are literally scrambling their brains to play the game anymore.

jerry jones is one of extraordinarily few ppl who might make me consider siding with roger goodell

sounds like there's all sorts of shit going on between the owners now sparked by this goodell contract shit. happy to have them at each other's throats for sure.

hey what do you know another top ten NFL talent/personality is (most liekly) out for the season. looks like sherman tore his achilles.

i was at the game tonight and there were SO many injuries, and penalties. theres just no flow to an nfl game. people were yawning by the third quarter. one cool play and the was just meh, lotta runs for two yards.

omg. bears challenged a run that was called out of bounds at the 1, saying it was a TD. the result of the challenge is that the ball was fumbled into the pylon, touchback and turnover.

Who is going to beat the Pats? Steelers in Gillette? Jags? I would think anything less than getting to the Superbowl would be a let down. They are not anywhere near the best of the Pats teams or anything over the past decade or so, but the league is pretty mushy these days on good teams.

Eagles would probably be the big favorite if old boy hadn't got hurt, as they do look pretty good all the way around.

One of those NFC South could get hot and go to the Superbowl. Vikings are pretty good all the way around, so maybe they make it their year. I'd be good with that scenario myself. I'd like to have bet 20 on the Rams going to the Superbowl way back around the draft, that might turn out to be a pretty good payoff if it happens and it is still a long shot at this point.

earlnash, Monday, 25 December 2017 14:41 (six months ago) Permalink

feel like almost all "great" RBs either feel overrated because of where they played (Bettis, E. Smith) or supremely talented but somehow unsatisfying careers (Adrian Peterson, Barry Sanders)

Joan Digimon (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 25 December 2017 23:27 (six months ago) Permalink

I have a decent amount of confidence in the Vikings ability to turn the Superbowl into a dreary 21-13 slugfest that everyone outside the home markets stops watching

There is a certain sweetness to read about a bunch of Cowboys hand wringing. It is good when not is all going well in Jerrahworld. It's funny that their stadium is the ultimate neutral site, even for the Cowboys. I'll be kind of surprised if Garrett gets fired, but man, he might kind of wish he does.

It's also hilarious that the Hatcats have screwed around and probably going to lose their QB. It's been a LONG LONG time since even a decent QB changed teams. I got to think Cousins is going to Denver, that makes way too much sense. They still have some picks and some good players. Got to wonder, would this had finally been the time and place for Wade Phillips to have been a head coach? Dude that defense really tuned up. Don't know.

Kinda curious in where Bruce Arians goes. If he leaves AZ, which he probably should - I got to think the Colts or Broncos might give him a call.

earlnash, Tuesday, 26 December 2017 23:25 (five months ago) Permalink

Remember when wade was a not great head coach in denver? So. Long. Ago.

I kinda don't think Hue Jackson is nearly as bad a head coach as his 1-31 record would indicate, but it's a number that is impossible to live down.

John McKay lost a ton of games with the Bucs, but he had won 4 national titles at USC, so he gets a pass.

Kinda surprised that Jim Caldwell got the boot in Detroit. I always a bit suspect of him in Indy, but really I think he did about as good as possible with what he had with the Lions. Did anyone really pick the Lions to be any better than 9-7?

earlnash, Monday, 1 January 2018 19:12 (five months ago) Permalink

I've always thought of Caldwell as a lousy coach but yea he's been doing a good job in Detroit. Don't really get that move

will say it's kind of funny that the Browns decide to put their foot down and say we're finally sticking with someone but god damn. I like Hue but he sucks.

nice that GB is finally moving on from Capers after putting a lousy defense on the field for like the 5th consecutive year. feel like after GB won the Super Bowl people figured his ass out quick.

frogbs, Tuesday, 2 January 2018 03:26 (five months ago) Permalink

GB seems to not have the depth and gets swamped by injuries. They are the best team first week of October and then a patchwork by the time the playoffs show up.

earlnash, Tuesday, 2 January 2018 04:10 (five months ago) Permalink

all these guys like Ted Thompson and McCarthy get their fuckin heads gassed up and think they are such savvy dudes and it's just like y'all stumbled on to 2 hall of fame qbs in a row (who also until now were barely ever hurt) and that covers up for all kinds of shit

Joan Digimon (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 2 January 2018 04:21 (five months ago) Permalink

the broncos did not fire their bad head coach but they did fire all the assistants left over from when they were good lol

lag∞n, Tuesday, 2 January 2018 04:22 (five months ago) Permalink

Thompson and Capers definitely deserve credit for their Super Bowl year - Thompson hit on a number of undrafted free agents that had to take the place of injured starters, and Capers' defense was great. In retrospect it's kind of obvious that Ted just got lucky one year, and the defense benefitted greatly from both statistical variance (I think they led the league turnover margin) and the presence of a surprisingly resurgent Charles Woodson. You also had Matthews and Raji playing at a level they wouldn't hit the rest of their careers. Their defense fell apart the very next year, which tends not to matter when you're averaging 35 points a game, but they definitely paid the price later on...
