    Thank you, hadn't noticed

    So the real question is, do the blazers win outright tonight? I love DOGS. But seriously, can someone explain this? Makes me kind of skeptical honestly Probably going to parlay this with the saints -6 on MNF
  4. Vikings fire OC John DeFilippo

    Fair enough. 2018 Vikings 2017 Falcons 2017 Redskins The first three that pop into my head. All of these offenses lost their OC from the previous season and took a step backwards.

    Agreed with Keenum. That would have been a worse signing. You are completely missing the point. Obviously the top 6 offensive teams are going to have talent. That has nothing to do with what I am saying. I am saying that offensive coaches are harder to replace than defensive ones, and that offensive coaches consistently get poached from teams with good offenses, meaning the 'good offense' is highly likely to take a step backward. A sub point (below my main argument and less relevant to the discussion) is that you can have an average offense with below average talent, if you have the right coach. Certainly possible on defense as well, but less likely. Again, offensive coaches are less easily replaced. Having a good OC means there is a high likelihood that you will have to replace them. That is detrimental to your team's short term success.

    Less than the number of defensive HCs who have lost good OCs, failed to replace them, then been let down by their new internal hire or young up and comer. Defense requires talent, the best schemes in the world don't matter if you don't have defensive talent. You can score points on offense with sub par talent but incredible play designs and play calls, or if you have one great offensive player. If you have one great defensive player, offenses can avoid them for most of the game. The only hot garbage in this thread is the Vikings offense

    I agree, although beating a team like Washington in week 3/4 this year should count as a 'winning team' even thought they will undoubtedly finish below .500, and beating them now does not classify as beating a good team. (just a random example) Also the likelihood that an opposing team is a 'winning team' DECREASES when you beat them because you add a loss to their record. Conversely, losing increases the chances the opposing team finishes with a winning record. That Vikings game is a perfect example, he beat them, they finished 8-8, if he loses, they finish 9-7 and would count against him. So there really is no perfect way to calculate this. 0-7 on MNF is pretty easy to calculate

    More proof that hiring defensive HCs is a bad idea. If you are a defensive HC and you have a good OC who leads a successful offense, he will be poached for a HCing job somewhere and your offense will completely fall apart. Offenses are more scheme dependent than defenses imo. Obviously there are exceptions to the rule, but all things being equal, give me continuity with my offensive scheme over the same on defense.

    He is 4-24 against winning teams in his career, per sports center this morning. Not sure exactly how they calculated it, but that is pretty bad

    Ive hated belt for a few years. He has such a bad swing. We will miss the stretch/length at first though, especially as Crawford gets older, but it is time to move on. Giants should eat all of the money remaining and get some good prospects... but they wont
  11. I was 12-0 before Kareem Hunt got TMZ'd. Lost last week and Im down 9 with Diggs to play, he has thielen. Here is to diggs with two TDs tonight!

  13. MNF GDT: Minnesota at Seattle

    I think Seattle takes this one. I just don't trust minnesotas offense right now.
  14. Where are you getting a PYP from? The only player involved in the deal was Mack. I don't think it was unreasonable to ask for two FRPs and then a mid-late round future pick. Sending a high second, a likely top 10 second rounder for a mid-late third was foolish.
  15. pretty laughable when people say 'but but but he drafted mack, cooper, carr!' Yeah, and Trent Baalke drafted Deforest Buckner, that doesn't mean he was a good GM. You mean the same cooper that everyone laughed at the cowboys for trading another first rounder for? (one that wasn't even a top 5 pick, like the one the raiders used on him) You mean the QB that everyone thought Gruden would dump after a season? Reggie's fate was sealed when he gave the bears an additional second rounder back
