  1. Broncos @ Jaguars (Broncos are my darkhorse this year) Packers @ Rams
  2. NFL Coaching Hot Seat

    VJ didn't come to mind, actually. But I have Denver making a deep run this year, so I kind of overlooked it.
  3. NFL Coaching Hot Seat

    The coaches currently on the pyre and *those standing in line awaiting a down year: Hugh Jackson Pete Carroll* Bill O'Brien* Adam Gase* Todd Bowles Dirk Koetter Jay Gruden Mike McCarthy* Jason Garrett John Harbaugh If Carroll, O'Brien, or McCarthy have 9 or more losses, I don't think they're guaranteed to keep their jobs at this point. Harbaugh, Garrett, and Gruden probably require solid playoff runs. Bowles needs improvement, but I don't think he gets canned for 7-9. Gase needs to have a good year but I don't think he's gone short of 5-11. Jackson and Koetter are practically dead men walking at this point.
  4. NFL Coaching Hot Seat

  5. Which rookie QB starts the most games in 2018?

    AT MOST: Tyrod opens as the starter while Mayfield adjusts McCarron opens as the starter while Allen adjusts and preps McCown opens, but probably splits reps with Teddy early. I wanted to go with Darnold on the poll, but I honestly think the Jets will try and redshirt him and try to build trade value with Teddy if McCown flops. Flacco has a career year (lets be honest, he isn't great, but the Ravens offense, especially the WR/TE situation has been poo since Boldin left). Lamar fans riot while he sits prompting the Ravens to start him around week 10 where he blows the Ravens' previously solid playoff hopes. Flacco cashes in and leaves in the off season. Josh Rosen will start every game for Arizona. If Bradford makes it out of preseason not on IR, I'll be shocked. But Rosen will simply outshine him and I don't think the Cardinals are bad enough to settle for a stop gap guy while the NFCW improves around them. I'm having Leinart/Warner flashbacks here about how poorly the Cardinals handled/mismanaged that entire situation. Ironic- former Rams star QB on his last leg keeping the seat warm for the brash kid from the LA school.... man, full circle?
  6. Do you root for your players from your College in the NFL?

    I follow former Ducks and hope for success, until they play Oakland. I justify cheering for Oregon alums playing for KC, LA, and DEN by imagining they're possible free agent additions for us 😂
  7. Either the greatest bluff of all time, or, Hackenberg would've been a Superbowl winning MVP by now...
  8. What Could Have Been?

    Not gonna say HOF, but I remember thinking Austin Collie was going to have a long and very productive career before KO'd.
  9. How would Alabama fare in the NFL?

    We would've seen 2 teams go 0-16.... NFL D's would have a field day with Jalen Hurts. Now if we're being gracious, I'd say I might could see Alabama's D play a respectable game or two, considering the overall talent they had on it. But the games would inevitably be blowouts because Alabama's offense would get wrecked. Hurts would make Kizer look like Tom Brady. Although Alabama might have NFL "ready" talent, it doesn't always mean NFL "good", and that goes for any team. Looking back at some of Pete's USC teams or even some recent Stanford teams, there was a boat load of NFL "ready" talent on them. But they would still get absolutely dominated, when looking back and seeing how the NFL careers of those players generally pans out.
  10. Bold Predictions Thread

    Now THAT is BOLD. Though to be fair, in real life, Marvin Lewis might be the only guy who could go 1-15 and still get a promotion.
  11. Bold Predictions Thread

    Browns go 0-16 again. Joe Flacco has a career year. The Superbowl will be played between 2 teams who have never won a Superbowl.
  12. Do Tua Tagovailoa's Comments Raise a Red Flag?

    Nope. Kid said he told his dad he wished he was somewhere else that was "easier" and less "challenging". Easier could be the cultural/geographical issues between Hawaii and Alabama. When my family moved from California to the Gulf Coast and I was playing football, I felt the same way. My teammates were great, but it wasn't the easiest transition. I was kind of/sort of in Tua's position in that I walked into a school where a starter was in place already, for better or worse. Challenging- Well, I'm sure it is challenging to keep riding the pine behind a clearly less talented QB. If I were in his position, even as a full grown adult, I'd probably talk to those close to me (like dad?) about my frustrations too. And if his comments about "easier" or "challenging" were about Saban's coaching and the strenuous practices, if it were an issue, he would have left the team by now. So no, nothing to see here.
  13. What is your REALISTIC expectation for this year?

    10-6, maybe 11-5 with a playoff berth (WC or Div Title). The offense should look a ton better without Downy soft calling a snow white vanilla offense. Find a RB to actually carry the load and stick with it. I don't want to see Marshawn backloading carries in the last 9 minutes of the 4th Q. That type of crap infuriated me last year. Amari to put up or shut up. With the money and now picks we've invested in the O-line, Carr had better not need to be running for his life. Consistent pass rush on D. Stronger against the run game in the middle/secondary. At some point during this season, I wan't to talk about how great (X) covered the TE today.
  14. 2018-2019 NFL Season Predictions (Awards)

    I'd say 9-7 is probably in the right ball park. But 10-6 with a WC slot assuredly isn't out of the question. Someone saying the Dolphins are one of the worst teams in the league must only watch Patriots games. I had you guys at 9-7 last year, so making it to 8-8 with the injuries and everything else should be a testament to how objectively good you really are. I've never been a Cutler fan, but I can comfortably say that just a better QB last year would've had you at 10-6. A few of the other issues fixed, 11-5 or 12-4 probably wouldn't have been out of the question. Best of luck this time around eh?
