  1. Do we have anything better to talk about?
  2. All we're replacing is our OC. 70 pages later.... Last year we replaced the entire coaching staff. Replacing the OC is all we have to talk about. A few years ago, we hired Robinson and Mularkey all in one off season, new GM/front office and coaching staff! This year, we lost our OC. We have all the assistants kept under contract. Just need an OC. We don't have a single clue as to who it will be other than we seem to be waiting for someone from the final 4 teams. If we don't hire someone after this weekend, it will only be 2 teams left. Who will it be.
  3. And it's probably another New England f!ing Patriot. Hope not.
  4. 20 - 20 hindsight, but he's supposed to have a pretty good crystal ball.

    Dolphins To Hire Brian Flores

    5 days after wildcard weekend, and the head coaching carousel is over. It spun pretty fast this year.
  6. Yeah baby! I'm all for it. My only worry is Kubiak and Pees are the only 2 coaches I know of that have been hauled off in an ambulance during a game.
  7. Hindsight is 20-20, but we hope JRob has a pretty good crystal ball. If continuity for Mariota was a concern, LaFleur as HC would have done it. Can't seem to be able to remove the pics below... weird.

    Should JRob have hired LaFleur as Head Coach?

    There's is simply no emogi worthy enough to respond!

    Should JRob have hired LaFleur as Head Coach?

    I wonder if he would have called plays himself ala McVay, guess we will find out what he does in Green Bay soon.

    Should JRob have hired LaFleur as Head Coach?

    continuity for Mariota, more forward looking (like Green Bay?), just interested in what people think.
  11. Maybe we should have hired LaFleur as our HC?
  12. I think we need even another connection to the New England Patriots, don't you?
  13. Makes you wonder how far the team is from where he thought it would be. He might be back to the drawing board.
  14. If we're ever going to get into Andrew Luck's head, we need to have some push/pressure up the middle.

    Mariota is a Thinker

    I agree with you, but you know how hard it is to upgrade the QB, the draft is a crap shoot and we are not picking high. The odds of upgrading Mariota for next year are almost infinitesimally small, we can take a flyer on a 3rd round QB and see what happens. In FA, we would be lucky to upgrade Gabbert let alone Mariota. I would hope we don't trade up a ton of draft picks to pick a QB, we have a lot of other needs.
  16. I'd be happy with that if it is an above average to good center.
  17. Being thin at WR proven talent, really only 4 WRs with NFL experience and only 1 (Matthews) with more than 1 year on the field experience in the NFL is one thing. Knowing Matthews is a malcontent and had made noises well before going into the season just tips the scales towards borderline reckless, IMHO.
  18. Especially since he knew Matthews was an issue

    Mariota is a Thinker

    We just have to go up to that big old QB upgrade shelf, the one where we put Cassel back up and took Gabbert down from, and upgrade from Mariota. Wait, you mean the QB merchandise quality up there is like Cassell and Gabbert? I thought they had top 10, proven QBs sitting on that shelf just ready to go! Won't they slide one up there like "on special" now and then and opposing teams won't notice? Possible but highly improbable. Draft and upgrade in FA our positions of need this year, D-line, WR, interior O-line to name a few.

    Episode 173 - Titans Beat Giants

    Suggest un pinning the podcast, it is quite old.

    Wildcard/Baltimore is sticking w/Jackson

    We can only hope Jacksonville signs Flacco in the off season...lol
  22. There's no way Mack was a football move, it was either a money or personality move, either of which makes it a bad move for the team.

    John DeFilippo fired

    Hopefully this will result in a one game shot in the arm to Minnesota to propel them to a win over Miami.

    Raiders Fire GM Reggie McKenzie

    Did a good job bringing the Raiders back, cleaned up all the dead money they had and went back to restocking from the draft. He picked up Carr and Mack in one draft rounds 1 & 2, in the same draft, picking a ahead of the Raiders the Texans picked Clowney and X'ou Filo.
