Muscles Hochuli is retiring.
That's worth a new thread, surely?
Goddammit there's a chance Richard Sherman could end up on the Patriots.
Seahawks in rebuild mode.
And the Rams pick up Talib for a 5th rounder.
3 years to late
If nothing else, Cleveland fans must be pleased that at least the new GM is decisively changing the roster. A team that bad couldn't stand pat. And it can't rely solely on its bevy of draft picks, if it wants to be competitive immediately Bringing in veterans makes sense. They may still be awful. But they're trying.
Sucks seeing Jordy cut, he was a great character and leader on the team and will be missed.
Denver preferred Keenum to Cousins. Interesting.
Is it better to pay corvette prices for a mustang or pay Lamborghini prices for a corvette.
I think it's a smart move, he isn't worth top dollar and the teams only can blame themselves with some of the contracts they have paid the last few years.
Some crazy trades happening. At virtually all positions. And we still have the drat to look forward to.
Long-suffering Viking fan here. Looks like that won't change anytime soon.
A rare spasm of common sense from NFL rules makers.
"We worked backward. We looked at plays and said, 'Do you want that to be a catch?' and then we applied that to the rule," vice president of football operations Troy Vincent explained to Maske.
"Slight movement of the ball, it looks like we'll reverse that. Going to the ground, it looks like that's going to be eliminated. And we'll go back to the old replay standard of revers(ing) the call on the field only when it's indisputable."
The rule is expected to be finalized Tuesday and brought forward for approval by team owners at the league meeting beginning Sunday.
If they are going to use instant replay to judge calls, they need to eliminate the super slo-mo, frame-by-frame bs. Watch it in real time a couple of times, & if they can't see a difference, call stands. Technology isn't always a good thing.
I like the idea of a clock. If they can't figure it out within, say, 1.5 minutes, the call on the field stands and get on with the game
See, Dez did catch that fucking ball.
Anyone who thinks Jeff Fisher is a mature adult doesn't know The Little Mustache. Vince Young wrote him a letter in which he apologized for his atrocious behavior with the Tennessee Titans. This is how Fisher responded
"Yes, I got a letter from Vince," Fisher said. "And I didn't respond. My name was spelled wrong on the letter, the letter came from the University of Texas, and I had no way of knowing if it was (really) from him. It came from the athletic department. But my name was spelled incorrectly.
"I thought if it was from him he would have maybe spelled my name right."
Young was working for his alma mater in the division of diversity and community engagement around the time he's said to have sent the letter.
A rules change proposal to make pass interference a 15-yard penalty instead of a spot foul, except when it's flagrant and deliberate, failed.
Good, I think. The last thing the NFL needs is forcing officials to make impossible judgment calls. Not after fixing the catch rule.
I hate the ticky tacky 40 yard interference calls to the one. That is my least favorite thing about pro football. Talk about officials deciding games.
And a big +1 on that.
We need to go back to old school football. Who doesn't remember that classic 1970 playoff game between the Cowboys and Lions? Dallas won a shutout while scoring a grand total of 5 points themselves.
