  1. Eagles vs Patriots SBLII GDT

    Thank you New England for screwing this up
  2. Eagles vs Patriots SBLII GDT

    What's the modern record for failed PATs in a game? We gotta be getting close at this point...
  3. 2018 Playoff Thread - No Dog In The Hunt Edition

    After watching portions of that game, the Jags played the Patriots far closer than we have at any time during the playoffs. We're gonna have to deal with the fact that they're the team to beat in this division now. Especially if they can improve their QB position, like we've been trying to do the past few years
  4. Titans Hire Mike Vrabel as Head Coach

    It's interesting. Before last year he was pretty good, enough for us to promote him to DC to make sure he didn't get that position elsewhere. But last year the defense was pretty awful. Was Vrabel in over his head? Or was it just we got absolutely flattened by injuries? I dunno. I hope for the former, mostly because they're a divisional opponent.
  5. Coaching staff vacancies

    Vrabel is now in Tennessee, opening up the defensive coordinator position.
  6. Broadcaster Keith Jackson Died

    "Fourth and five... national championship on the line." Rest in peace, Mr. Jackson.
  7. Texans GM Rick Smith taking "extended leave of absence"

    From a real life standpoint, I wish him and his wife all the best, and a quick and speedy recovery. From a pure football standpoint, I am glad he's gone. While he's definitely gotten some stars, he is absolutely terrible at getting any depth whatsoever, and on the off chance he does find something good, he seems loath to actually pay them, leaving us back to square one once they start producing. His free agent signings have been pretty god awful. If you need to hit on a 1st round pick, he seems competent enough at that - but at anything else his job entails, he's truly terrible. We needed to replace him.

    If I have to pick a side, I'd rather keep O'Brien. Smith's incompetence is far more egregious. That said, I can't say I'm overly attached to either.
  9. Who do you want next at HC and GM?

    Bill Barnwell, at the least, seems to think that if it opens up, it's the most attractive spot in the league: http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21759278/ranking-best-nfl-potential-head-coach-openings-2018 That said, I don't know how working with Rick Smith could possibly be attractive at this point...
  10. Rick Smith Hot Seat Thread

    Russell Wilson had half a billion yards against us, but Jacksonville's mostly held him down. AJ Bouye even has an interception. Man, it'd be really stupid to let someone like that go and have nothing to show for it despite a ton of cap room. Reaaaalllly stupid. (this is nothing new, but watching the highlights infuriates me nonetheless)
  11. Week 14 GDT: San Francisco Niners vs Houston Texans

    I think Indy's still winnable, but Jacksonville and Pittsburgh are gonna murder us. If, y'know, anybody's left standing to play the next couple games...
  12. Who would you rather see fired?

    This is pretty simple for me. O' Brien is mediocre. Smith is outright terrible.

    ayy, there's our good ol' Savage screwing things up
  15. Week 13 | Other Games Thread

    RE: why Oklahoma could jump Clemson - because aside from Auburn, Clemson's resume has been declining as of late. Which strictly speaking isn't their fault, but that doesn't change the fact that a number of their early season wins are at the moment just... meh. Again, outside of Auburn, their only other opponent in the current rankings is Virginia Tech, sitting all the way at 25. You can say South Carolina is now, but they're not going to be ranked come next week. Their best chance at adding another one is to hope that NC State sneaks back into the rankings. Oklahoma, meanwhile is still sitting peachy with 3 comfortable victories in the top 20 - Ohio State, TCU and Oklahoma State. So while wins may be more important than losses, if that's the case, Oklahoma's still got a very good argument. Add in the loss though, and it's a different story. Iowa State may have fallen off an ended 7-5, but still has a respectable record that includes an additional win versus TCU. Syracuse... is 4-8, just got blown out in back to back games, and have not won a single thing since beating Clemson. It's a really bad loss to have on your resume.
