  1. New year, new off season mock

    Is Wagner still your starter at RT in this scenario?
  2. The Airing of Grievances

    I thought the same thing. Background checks get ran on almost every potential employee these days. When looking at a potential employee as high profile as a NFL head coach, there's no excuse. At least he should have asked if there was anything in Patricia's past that would embarrass the organization. That's a pretty simple question to ask.

    Whatever good things we saw previously with JBC, we saw more bad this season. It doesn't seem like JBC and Patricia are a good fit.

    No action was needed. His contract expired.

    A Giants win would help lessen the damage of today's win.

    It's been that long?

    If there's one thing I have faith in with this team, it's finding creative ways to lose. There's still hope.

    Neat fake field goal. Where was that play when the season still mattered?
  9. The Airing of Grievances

    A little late for Festivus, but I wanted to give us all a chance to partake in an important aspect of the Holiday. The Airing of Grievances. What about the Lions drives you crazy? Let it all out here! I'll start: LaGarrette Blount has gotten the majority of carries this season, but has been the least productive and least exciting option all year long. He's also a negative in the pass game. Averaging a stunningly low 2.8 yards per carry, he's out performed by everyone who gets a chance to carry the ball, yet they keep forcing Blount into the game.

    You so clearly don't.

    A little over a month old, but this is what I could find.

  12. The Blues mock offseason.

    https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/fantasy-football-metrics-that-matter-passing-differences-when-pressured https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/pro-the-importance-of-pressure-its-not-all-about-sacks This should be a pretty simple concept for a football fan to intake. When a QB has all day to throw, defenses have to cover longer, and there are more opportunities for routes to develop or people to get open. No defensive player can cover a target forever. When a QB is under pressure, even if someone is open the QB's mechanics are off, so the ball isn't as accurate, or they can't step into the throw, so there isn't as much zip on the ball, guys don't have to cover as long, routes don't develop, etc. That gives the defense the advantage.

    What 25-27 year old guard would you bring in? What RT vet would you want to compete with the others? Which "big bodied guys" will be more involved? How involved will they be?

    What is your plan for the right side of the offensive line? I think MJ and KG are already excellent deep threats, I think adding Jackson doesn't add a lot and we should be bringing in players who excel in the short/intermediate area. I am not familiar enough with this draft class to comment on the players you drafted.

    That's pretty fundamental defensive stuff there man.
