Diggs and Thielen both seem to have their moments. 

Yes...they do.  They haven't turned the "attitude" towards their own team as of yet...except maybe Adam's little drama with Cousins on Sunday.

From Super Bowl Live and Ian Rappaport: The #Eagles are expected to pick up the $20M option for QB Nick Foles, sources say. Not a surprise, but an important piece. What happens next will be intriguing.

 

 

 

That move will likely be followed by Foles buying out the option year by paying the Eagles $2 million. That would set him up for free agency unless the Eagles decide to use the franchise tag. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Eagles plan to do just that when and if Foles buys out the option. Per the report, the Eagles’ intent is to trade the quarterback to another team for at least a third-round pick.

Why don't the Vikings win any meaningful awards when they have a good season. It's like we need to really suck in order to and work our way back up in order to win anything. Nagy goes 12-4 and has awards thrown at him. Zimmer goes 11-5 one year and 13-3 a couple years later and get's nothing.

Zimmer didn’t do either in his first year. Had Zimmer gone 11-5 or 13-3 and won the division in his first year after the team went 3-13, then he’d have earned an award.

Well unlike Nagy Zimmer had to overturn the roster and roll Matt Cassell out at QB.

He can win coach of the year when he wins the super bowl.

And if he doesn't win it after that I wouldn't really care

So why won’t Cowboys owner Jerry Jones extend the contract of coach Jason Garrett? There’s a theory that has been percolating throughout Super Bowl week in Atlanta, and that surely will become one of the major points of interest throughout the 2019 season. The theory goes like this: The Cowboys part ways with Garrett after his contract expires, and the Cowboys lure Sean Payton from New Orleans to Dallas in 2020.

It may be easier said than done. The Cowboys would need to compensate the Saints for allowing Payton to leave, and that compensation likely would include at least one draft pick. The Cowboys also would have to pay Payton, who likely would expect (and rightfully so) eight figures per year, at a minimum.

That rumor/theory has been floating out there for a few years now. 

But, Payton’s contract is up after the 2020 season. If Dallas wants Payton, they could give Garrett a one year extension. Then go after Payton in 2021.

It isn't going to matter when the Bears suck this next year.  Pagano's a good DC, but he's not nearly as good as Fangio.

Fangio is another Zimmer, IMO. 

I think the Packers messed up by not signing him to be their head coach.

Is it just me, or was this year an underwhelming crop of head coaching changes? Zac Taylor? Really?

You've gotta put it is perspective. If the other person in contention was Hue Jackson, the Bengals made a phenomenal hire.

It really was bad. Not that there weren’t worthwhile candidates, but the NFL basically said that anyone who has touched the coat of McVay is a head coaching candidate. 

Mill bet that in 3 years, half or more of these coaches will be fired.
