  1. Good observation. They definitley do tend to get burned by fast teams because of the amount of passing, and teams like the Penguins who seem to gamble a lot to disrupt passes.
  2. Great story
  3. Caps seem to lose all of their mojo when on extended breaks. Hopefully getting the win against Columbus gets them back on track.
  4. I found the call to be incredibly stupid, from my perspective. However, I am certain that if they did not go for it there, and some of the other times, they would have lost the game. This is why I'm not a Superbowl winning head coach.
  5. This ^^ I lost all of my baby teeth playing "smear the queer" and 5 on 5 with my neighborhood friends
  6. The Pats defense was exposed for the trash that it was. I suspected their "improvement" was an illusion after watching Bortles look reasonably competent, and that the Eagles had way too many weapons on offense for them to contain. Going to be an interesting off-season for the Cheats. End of the dynasty(more like Evil Empire)?
  7. Told y'all.
  8. Those are good points, and I see it's value from that perspective. However, not to nitpick, but Dungy had already had a head coaching job prior to the Rooney rule, as Tampa Bay's head coach.
  9. Actually it didn't. They had already interviewed Ron Rivera to satfisfy the rule. Tomlin was interviewed later on.
  10. I grant that I believe that Pees(and Marty) are better coaches than most (jaded) Ravens fans give them credit for, but Pees should have stayed retired. Overall he wasn't terrible, and had some pretty fine defenses during his tenure, but in recent years, his defense's lack of ability to close games out, almost peculiarly, shows that he really just doesn't have anything left in the tank.
  11. The Rooney rule is one of the all-time dumbest things ever. Has there truly ever been a case of a minority getting hired because he was granted a token interview when a team already had their man picked? No, there hasn't. It may have brought some awareness at some point, in regards to looking more towards minorities as head coaches, but it certainly hasn't worked in a sense that the rule itself has any meaning. It only serves as embarassment for the recipients of the token interviews, and causes yet more racial tension and division. Teams are going to hire who they truly believe gives them the best chance at winning, at least in most cases you would tend to think.
  12. Starting to agree. He is a great recruiter, but his teams play way below their talent level. Major offensive droughts continue to plague his teams.
  13. I agree. I think the Pats defense, much like the Steelers is vastly overrated. I also think Nick Foles is being vastly underrated. The Eagles were the best team all season, and they will surprise some people with a solid win.
  14. I don't think he's getting suspended.
  15. I'm going to disagree. The Eagles team we are seeing tonight is far more complete than the Jags. Foles is more than adequate, and the Eagles are utterly loaded on offense. The Patriots defense is not going to be able to slow them down. Yeah, Bellichcik, I know, but I don't think that New England has the defensive talent to stop this team. They've been a scoring machine all season long. I also think the Eagles D is going to get after Brady more than the Jags did...just a hunch.
