    my guess, (aside from the obvious–the league wants to profit off these players while still having the appearance of taking a stand) is that denying someone employment opens the league up to a whole slew of legal problems having to do with employment discrimination, which disinviting them from a single, invite-only event doesn't.

    This is how I feel about Sam Shields

    I think surprise onside kicks bring it up a bit because they had a far higher success rate, but they’re also pretty rare. Realistically, you’re probably looking at about a 15% success rate for expected onside kicks before the rule changes. After the rule changes, it’s like 8%

    In the NFL, 4th and 12 has a 19% success rate. The year before the rules change, onside success rate was 23% (over the past decade it’s been lower than that though though). It’s in the right ballpark.

    Thanks! It’s appreciated

    I doubt GB woud try to recoup any money from Madison. Teams usually don’t as long as the player seemed to be acting in good faith at the time of the deal. It’s pennies in the bucket from the team’s standpoint and it’s a pretty bad look to ask for guaranteed money back from a guy dealing with the death of his close friend.

    For some reason, I haven’t been able to view embedded images in your threads. Would you mind posting direct links to the images if possible? Thanks for all this work

    Finley comes off to me as being very ADHD with no filter. I think he talks just to feel his lips moving. I have no problem with the guy, but I take very little that he says seriously.

    Wouldn’t surprise me to see Brice not retained. Not necessarily saying he should be, but we’ve seen it before here where backup-quality players are put in a starting position, fail to perform and then are not brought back even as backups. I kind of get the feeling that’s what we’re going to see happen here. Management decides to go with a guy who might be able to be starting- quality as a backup rather than the one they know isn’t.

    One thing that really stood out to me about Goff was that he really pulled his throws with pressure coming in. Obviously it takes a huge amount of guts and discipline to stand in there and deliver a throw knowing you’re about to get slammed, but Goff was pretty consistently pulling away from pressure before contact and it was very clearly affecting his throws. It’s the superbowl man, you’ve got to stand in there and take those hits.
  12. Does that mean we don't have to play any other Thursday games? I'd be down for that. + less wait time after preseason + get a thursday game without the short week + catch a div opponent without any film on us + embarrass the Bears while everyone is watching (again) + maybe they goof up the paint and cancel the game +? get soldier field before it has time to get completely cratered -? we have to be the canary in soldier field's mineshaft - early season funk comes on the road against a division rival - nothing to looks forward to on opening sunday

    Yeah I see that too. I think people want the process to make sense from an outside perspective, so they take what's available and try to treat it as if it is what actually matters.

    Yeah I think it's kind of inevitable that these kinds of conversations very quickly depart from anything that would actually be meaningful. Fans have so little access to the things that are actually relevant when looking for a new coach that they grasp onto the only things they do have easy access to: staff associations, bits of press conferences and basic team stats. It's silly to think any of these things would be a deciding factor for a real search committee. Very few of us (not me certainly) have the time, commitment, and acumen to actually break down the film to analyze coaching. Even then, you're getting a very small bit of the picture.
