  1. Will Tom Brady Become The Greatest...

    All offenses today have staples of what Bill Walsh did with the 49ers. Just like teams have staples of what Don Coryell did in St.Louis and San Diego. There is no "this is the west coast offense" book or guide that teams figured out, and abandoned. Even during that time Walsh was using a lot of concepts that came long before his time. You see a lot of teams during that period using similar formations and approaches. Montana would be fine in today's era, just like the rest of quality quarterbacks of that time. The 49ers had great players (which took time to acquire) in addition to Walsh being a very good tactician with the wealth of knowledge he learned over years and years. That's why they were good, not because Walsh pulled a rabbit out of his hat that no one could figure out. Or else Steve Deburg would have looked good as a 49er, and the team would have never lost a game from 1979 onwards. Walsh would still be learning and evolving if he was coaching today.
  2. What are your thoughts on Payton, Tomlin, and McCarthy?

    I wonder if teams would be clamoring for Tomlin as their next head coach if he's axed. Not necessarily for next season, but 2019 and beyond

    Also, this is probably the game where New England just spams the short receiving backs like White and Lewis for first downs. Jacksonville has better linebackers than Tennessee does though. At least being about to move laterally.
  4. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

    I guess I couldn't have said covered. Ramsey or Bouye could probably cover him just fine. It's stopping him from catching the ball, or at least make his catches contested. Basically just stopping him. Kevin Byard stuck with him, but couldn't stop him at all from making catches. Just wasn't as big as Gronk. No one is. Ramsey is a little taller than Bouye, maybe that helps. Also getting Church in the mix.
  5. GWT: Week 20 Jaguars @ Patriots

    I wonder who will be tasked with covering Gronkowski on most snaps. Ramsey might be interesting.
  6. Tennessee and Mike Mularkey mutually part ways

    So the guy that just got fired for winning a playoff game as head coach will now be subservient to the guy that has gone 1-31. Classic.

    Sometimes it might also be about who you know. Personally, I think a lot of coordinators get too much heat for their players not being able to execute. Players they didn't choose to have in the first place.

  9. Colts expected to hire Josh McDaniels as HC

    Oh okay. Ehh. Probably stick with Klondike.

    Bourne is a rookie that showed some flashes. I think I'd take chances with him. Crabtree as a red zone target was terrible here. Couldn't catch a fade, couldn't gain separation, wasn't a strong ball contesting guy like Boldin, and had zero hops. Now he is 30. His best attributes were his hands and ability to get YAC. Also wasn't a fan of him making subtle snarky comments about his teammates or coaches when things weren't going his way. Just my perspective on it. Think the team is better off without him.

    This exists?

    I'm PapaShogun, and I approve this message.
  13. Does Defense Win Championships?

    Which has nothing to do with the point I was making. Saying a team isn't good statistically in a certain area, doesn't mean they can't win a game or a series of games in a row. 2001 Patriots weren't a dominant team like I was saying. They won the Super Bowl.

    Firing Kris Ricard was weird.
  15. Around the NFL

    Yeah, I'd be all for upgrading the receiver position. A 30 year old Crabtree coming off a disappointing season isn't in the cards for me.
