Do all of you guys know that NFL.com is giving free access to Gamepass until the end of May?  I've started reviewing the Cousins era to see if I'm being unfair to him lol.

It's a paid subscription they have which enables one to watch NFL games.  I'm not sure if it usually includes the current season or not tbh.  But you can go back several years and watch games.  I like the condensed games, taking out everything between snaps.  Games go quickly like that.

Yes, it does include the current season.  The full game generally shows up shortly after the actual game ends, and then a few hours later, they have a condensed version (generally around 45 minutes), which is usually the one I watch, as it cuts out all the miscellaneous talk in-between plays.

Okay, cool.  A friend and I went in halves a few years ago on what I guess was Sunday Ticket.  We could watch any game live on there.  Haven't done anything like that since though, so i didn't know what kind of setup they had now.

Just as a bit of a comparison, I went back and took another coaches career into account to see what similarities and differences there were between he and Zimmer.  This coach actually had two more full seasons and 5 games in his first interim span on top of Zimmer's 6 full seasons, so I removed his two worst seasons and the 5 extras (those were both 5-11 seasons and he was 2-3 in the extra five games).

This coach had the following records:

96  games 54 wins-42 losses for a .563 win %  

5 playoff games  1 win-4 losses for a .200 win %

he made 1 NFCCG and lost

 

And that man's name is Wayne Fonts.  These were the 89-91 and 93-95 seasons in Detroit.

So he's 18-17-1 in the division.

The Lions never should have fired Wayne Fontes.  He's the best Lions' coach in my lifetime.  If he had only been given a QB, he might have done more damage...and actually might have made the Super Bowl.

Coaches in the NFL still don't have great job security even with an extension

Better job security than players due to mainly guaranteed deals.
