  1. Morey-ball

    IMO the closest thing there is right now to what you're referencing, is Canadian football. Mike Lombardi might be a clown like 80% of the time, but he is right about one thing: teams need to try and not be in ANY third down situations at all. No more "lets try and get to 3rd and short". Treat it like 3 down football, using 1st and 2nd down to get the 1st. Stop with these completely wasteful, down wasting 2 yard runs on 2nd down. Like what the hell is the point? If you're going to run it, use spread concepts with some jet motions etc. At least TRY to get the 1st down on 2nd and 10 when you run it, instead of trying to get to just 3rd and short. Its mind-numbingly frustrating. There are some coaches who have began to understand this though. McVay, Payton, Reid, Pederson, Reich...maybe one or two others.
  2. Your reasoning for cutting McLeod makes no sense....and it makes even less sense when I see you mocking Clinton Dix here on an 11 million per year deal????? Ehhhhh not a fan. I like the Sweat pick. But not the Love trade up at all. And wheres the OL?? Cut Wiz and sign or draft noone? Huh
  3. Why are people so eager to axe McLeod? His injury wasnt a career altering one. Hes still only, what, 26 or 27 years old? His contract isnt that bad at all. And he and Jenkins have good chemistry on the back end together on D, and IMO McLeod played really well during our SB run. Plus, retaining him would make it so that we wouldnt need to worry so much about keeping Darby, and more or less, wed be able to keep Maddox (who btw is going to be a freaking stud), Rasul, LeBlanc, and Jones all at corner and let them develop there. Having a veteran safety like McLeod who is both experienced and yet also still in the early stages of his prime, is an underrated asset. I hope we keep Graham. Sign him to something like 3 yrs/33 million with 15 guaranteed. People keep saying he had a down year, but he once again was in the top 10 in the NFL in QB pressures this season. *interesting stats: we had 3 of the 9 best pass rushers in the NFL in terms of QB pressures in 2018. Cox was 2nd with 95 and the closest behind him had 78. (Donald was 1st with 108). If it werent for Donald being an alien, Cox would be talked about way more. Michael Bennett had 68 pressures (9th in the league, and only 1 less than Khalil Mack). And then B-Rex finished in 7th place, AHEAD of Mack. PFF ranked our pass rush at #2 in the NFL. Which is pretty remarkable considering we didnt have Jernigan for almost all of the year and Barnett was out basically the entire season. We have a really good mixture of youth and vets up front on the DL. Why mess that up? I say keep Bennett, resign B Rex, restructure Timmy if we need to (although his contract has no guaranteed money so its nbd if we dont), and use one of our first three picks on an interior DL.
  4. Wentz vs Goff vs Prescott

    Goff and Wentz are almost too close. Wentz is the better QB when hes on the field, but the fact that Goffs never been hurt enough to miss any games IIRC is what makes them a tossup. The better poll would be Goff or Wentz or Foles. Dak couldnt even hold BDN's jockstrap (both in a literal and physical sense)
  5. Browns hire Todd Monken for OC

    I agree with this mostly. But I find the bolded to be grossly annoying whenever I hear people mention this imagination that is the "McVay coaching tree". Hes like 32! Hes been a HC for 2 years! He even said it himself, fairly recently when it was brought up after the LaFlaeur and Taylor hires, when he pointed out that that this imagined tree of his is fiction. Its more like, McVay, Kyle Shannahan, LaFleur, are all part of the Mike Shannahan tree. And Pederson and Nagy, the Reid tree. Then theres the grocery list of guys from the BB coaching tree. McVay is a long time away from having his own "tree". So to speak.
  6. Browns hire Todd Monken for OC

    Seriously. I really think, though, that it has less to do with Kitchens himself and his connections to these guys (are there any?), but more so to do with these guys hoping to ride these coordinator jobs into HC gigs. Monken should be a HC right now when you compare him to other hires, but the human garbage that calls itself Jameis Winston really messed up his 2018 resume and made it look worse than it should. Right now if I had to put money on who will be the hottest Head Coaching candidate a year from now, Id put it on Monken. Hes a brilliant offensive mind, going from coaching under Dirk Koetter, where Koetter probably did more harm than good to Monkens offense each week by just simply existing. He goes from Jameis to Baker. A puke-level run game to IMO one of the more talented backfields there is going into 2019. And Wilks of course simply wasnt given enough time to really get a fair evaluation of him. Hes likely hoping that he will be going to a team that will allow him almost total autonomy on defense (which is likely) coupled with a bevy of talent on that side of the ball will get him another shot. Unfortunately for Wilks, we are at a time where you have brilliant coaches, who are among the best defensive minds in football (cough Fangio), guys have 10-20+ years of NFL coaching experience, getting lucky to have one team interview them. Meanwhile, someone who has almost no NFL coaching experience ,unless you include sniffing McVay's skid-stained briefs one time at the combine, got twice as many that we know of, and got hired by Cincinnati....Zac Taylor. Fangio is 60, having coached for decades, while proving he can adapt to the modern NFL along the way by constantly fielding the best units in the league on D. Hes a brilliant coach and football mind. Zac Taylor (who the hell spells their name like that?), however, has this resume: Dolphins QB Coach for 2013-2015 - I can't say I was ever very impressed by Miamis QBs any of that time. Dolphins interim OC for IIRC 5 games when Campbell was fired. He was underwhelming to say the least. The OC and QB coach for the Cincinnati Bearcats of the NCAA for one year in 2016. The Bearcats' offense scored an average of 29 pts per game the 5 years before his arrival. In his lone season, he helped them....oh wait. No he actually was worse, coaching an offense that ranked in the bottom 10% of the NCAA and averaged 19 pts a game. A 10 pt difference. Then in 2017, he jumped back to the NFL to follow Sean McVay. And apparently Taylor was so impressive, that McVay made him the WR coach. Wait hold on. I meant the ASSISTANT WRs coach. He couldnt even get a job that Greg Lewis once held. But. ..Sean McVay!!!! And this past year he was QB coach. Although, being that McVay is apparently the QB whisperer, and Goff didnt make some huge leap from last year to this year, Im not quite sure honestly what in the hell Taylor actually did for the Rams. Besides massaging Goff's throwing arm every day for him, ot bringing McVay In N Out Burger during late night meetings. This just goes to show how insane these owners are about this whole idiotic notion that theyre gonna find the next McVay. Because its not gonna happen. McVays don't just grow on trees. I mean, Pederson, Shannahan, and McVay are the modern templates for what you should want in your HC. Each in their own ways. But i also think those will be the three best HCs in the NFL 3 years from now. It just makes me feel bad for these defensive coaches, who are gonna be relegated to working under guys 20 years their junior with less experience than a wet fart. A defensive HC can 100% win a SB rn. But the problem will be that to do so, they'll need a really good OC, who would end up bolting for to coach the Titans or someone, the following year. Sigh. /rant
  7. Eagles vs. Saints: Divisional Round

    Foles decided a beatdown would be too boring. He wants to give the Saints hope before he literally destroys their souls
  8. Eagles vs. Saints: Divisional Round

    Lol no. Our offense is much better. Especially our OL, QB, and HC.

  11. Eagles vs. Saints: Divisional Round

  12. Eagles vs. Saints: Divisional Round

    Literally Dougie and this team are at their best when theyre the underdog team that everyone counted out
  13. Eagles vs. Saints: Divisional Round

  14. Eagles vs. Saints: Divisional Round

    Ugh Brooks better be OK. This OL has been Stellar...and its led by the combo of Brooks-Johnson on the right side (IMO the best G-T duo in the league)
  15. Eagles vs. Saints: Divisional Round
