    Is this next season BB's last? I'm hearing JM is staying with the Pats because he's the heir apparent. Brady is getting old and his relationship with BB is wearing thin.
    Wade proved it at multiple stops. McDaniels has only been a coordinator at the Patriots (I think), and who knows how much of that is BB?
    No longer the member of any fan clubs. I'm tired of jinxing players out of the league and into obscurity.

    Sorry, even with Woodchuck posting a picture of chickens in the thread towards me, I got to get this off my chest.

    McDaniels is a total and complete FUCK! What an asshole. He hires assistant coaches for the Colts job and then backs out. He just screwed the Colts and the other coaches. What HC is going to want to go to a team that already has a bunch of coach in place? Hey, I wanted to run a 3-4 and the DC is a 4-3 guru.

    This shit move is 100x worse that what the Packers did this offseason where they fired people after a poor 2017 season.

    I still consider myself a QB expert, but fwiw, I was a shutdown corner in HS, not a QB.

    Have you seen Nutz's posts? Dude's extremely knowledgeable about football overall, but he knows shit about corners. Pretty sure Nutz once said somewhere that Randall was gonna be the next great thing. Reading it, I was like, "Stick to offensive linemen, bro."

    Woody was posting chicken pics? Lol, this forum is funny as heck.

    I guess the Colts are gonna need to hire a coach with a background in offense, you know, someone who doesn't give a fuck whether his D is a 3-4, 4-3, 5-2, 4-4, Psycho or Nitro, so long as it stops the rock. Darrell Bevel comes to mind.

    And since we're getting things off our chests, I just lost a shitload of frogskins tonight playing cash poker. Fishes were hitting their draws against moi, and after a few rebuys, I started tilting and gambling like a drunk sailor. Maybe I'm just a fish, too, but just wanna tell somebody.

    Ex-49ers QBs, current teammates rejoice at Garoppolo deal

    PEBBLE BEACH — Steve Young and Alex Smith enthusiastically endorsed Thursday’s news that Jimmy Garoppolo will get paid more than anyone ever to work their old job as 49ers quarterback.

    “Tremendously good news, and if I had $136 million, I would have given it to him,” Young said as he and Smith golfed together at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

    A text alert on Young’s phone informed the former Niners on the front nine at Spyglass Hill Golf Course, and neither had sticker shock at the figures: $137.5 million over five years, with $90 million guaranteed in the first three seasons, per ESPN.
    New target set for Aaron.
    “It is so easy to be wrong—and to persist in being wrong—when the costs of being wrong are paid by others.”

    What a fucking idiot, that Kelce. I mean, kids skipped school to be at that event. Now they think it's cool to swear.

    Just kidding. It was a cool rant."Fuck" has gotta be the greatest word of all time.

    If Tank ran the Packers, they'd be in the tank. The toilet tank.

    I am down on how all the offseason changes happened, and I still think McCarthy pulled an arrogant move with the GM thing, and I think Murphy kowtowed and has set himself up for failure, but it's all still a million times better than hiring Josh McAsshole.

    At least Green Bay might have some short-term success before it all goes to hell.

    Somehow, I just don't think McDaniel's is going to be able to measure up to Belichick. Though Bill did resign from the Jets when he didn't like Parcell's continued involvement, so he has contract betrayal down.

    Do you need to run to set up play-action? @guga31bb shows through numbers of the last 7 years that there's no connection between teams that run more (or better) and success on play-action passes. http://www.footballoutsiders.com/sta...action-passing

    So it's like having sex with a woman and not knowing if her orgasm is real or fake:

    It doesn't matter.

    Exactly. Defensive coordinators are too wrapped up in their own little world:

    We will stop the run first?

    What if I want to pass a little on first down?

    We will stop the run first no matter what!

    You don't understand me.

    I think its a gambler's fallacy on the part of the defense. If you never run, the defense gets a creeping feeling that you're due.

    Murphy "demoted" a GM who not only was too incompetent to do his job, but has become, apparently, mentally incompetent.

    Couple of examples: Thompson couldn't find anyone better to replace Gunter when Gunter was starting, and the Polar Bear had no clue where he was during a meeting with the suits. Polar Bear is not fit for GM duty anymore.

    If Guntekunst utilizes Belichickism, the Packers should win at least 2 more Super Bowls before A-Rod hangs up the cleats.

    Maybe Mcdaniels found out Luck is never going to be the QB he was before the injury. That alone could affect his decision.

    If it was as easy as utilizing a system, everybody would win the Super Bowl every year!

    He probably should have asked about that before he "took" the job and starting hiring staff.
