    @rcon14 thanks for this information. In your next version, it’d be sweet if you could add a column for “age” if it’s not too much trouble. Thanks again for this data.

    Fair enough. I'd like Pollack also.

    I'm surprised the 49ers are even allowing GB to interview Stenavich! They've blocked everyone else. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/01/17/report-packers-interviewing-49ers-adam-stenavich-for-offensive-line-coach/#comments

    What you've just described are most coaches I've ever had - some really demanding, crusty, salty ol' cusses that you sometimes grew to hate. Though we may hate them sometimes, we wouldn't go so far as to call them jerks, and we respected them. An old salty dog of a coach can be effective without being a complete jerk. The fact that we're speculating some about Guge, should not altogether preclude him from being vetted. So I agree with you on that at least.
  5. LaFleur's Lieutenants - Coordinator/Staff Thread

    Yes. But lets get back to your point. Any coach, Oline included, are paid to observe, evaluate, instruct, and motivate. Being a jerk is not in the job description, nor is it even implied. I know you were a coach, and I know what you're getting at, but I disagree that being a jerk in general is productive - not even in isolated situations.
  6. LaFleur's Lieutenants - Coordinator/Staff Thread

    Disagree he's paid to be a jerk. Come on man, that was a lazy take.

    Hourly employees (who are generally non-exempt from being paid overtime) obviously wouldn't get Paid Bereavement, but they wouldn't be blocked from taking the time off necessary to attend to a family tragedy - in most cases. If the employer did block a non-exempt, hourly employee from taking the time off, well, I'd advise the employee to dump that hourly job and find another (if possible). The case we're discussing with the Lions - if true - is an egregious, scrooge level of selfishness against exempt employees that I wouldn't want to be a part of either.
  8. I'm warming up more to the LaFleur/Hackett hires. It's kind of a Charlie Brown Christmas/Bad News Bears sorta deal - hopefully with the same happy ending!
  9. LaFleur's Lieutenants - Coordinator/Staff Thread

    This bums me out. I'm hoping there's still a deal to be made - not losing hope.
  10. LaFleur's Lieutenants - Coordinator/Staff Thread

    Yep, that’s more like the real world.

    Or payoff Clete Blakeman. It won't take much since he doesn't like the Patriots much.

    Not surprised many of those "coldest games" were played on the Frozen Tundra. I'm thinking old man Brady is going to be a frozen statue on Sunday. Chiefs just need to get after him before his patented 3-step dump-offs are deployed.

    Bears considering a play for Hunt? http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/01/14/bears-keep-door-open-on-future-pursuit-of-kareem-hunt/

    “And to sweeten the deal even more, I’ll let you practice in the dome on cold days, and you’re welcome to coach from the cozy confines of the heated booth on game days - no need to freeze your nards outside on the frozen tundra! Deal?”

    “Done! I’ll also throw in a brand new four wheel drive - your choice. When can you start?”
