    Content Post Idle thoughts

    You may be right, and it is hard to argue that BOB as an experienced OC would be doing worse than Patricia.. However, I will point out that BOB is probably the most vilified Alabama OC by Alabama fans in my memory, I think they would drive him to the airport. But I would be very surprised if...

    Content Post Idle thoughts -

    Agreed on Fins and their upcoming cap issues. Owner Stephen Ross (excited about the prospect of winning the award for the "worst owner in the NFL" if Dan Snyder is forced to sell) changes his long term plan every week, and the "build through the draft" plan suddenly went out the window and they...

    Game Day Thread Official Post Game Thread- Bears beat the Pats

    Some of the things recently said about Mac by posters or shameless idiots like Volin (fighting with the coaches, noodle arm, not tough enough, the moment is too big for him, etc.) are obvious nonsense for anyone who has watched his college career and his career with NEP so far. However, to your...

    Game Day Thread Official Post Game Thread- Bears beat the Pats

    Agreed on this part, I'm a little surprised that the Pats weren't more prepared for a Superbowl type of effort from the Bears given the national attention (on Monday Night Football no less) that the record being broken would have garnered. The Pats acted like they thought the Bears were just...

    Game Day Thread Official Post Game Thread- Bears beat the Pats

    You are correct that it has been 4 weeks and one day instead of 3 weeks, I evidently miscounted, thanks for pointing out the error. However, my goof doesn't change the fact that 4 weeks and 1 day would still be an extremely fast recovery from a high ankle sprain, I believe that it typically...

    Game Day Thread Official Post Game Thread- Bears beat the Pats

    About no complaints about the coaching last week, to the contrary there were scores of news articles about how genius BB "has done it again" with the 2022 draft and the strong play of the Pats in the last couple of games (before last night). I feel like I'm getting whiplash after the changed...

    NEW ARTICLE: Volin on Mac Jones: “The kid needed to be humbled” - UPDATED: Claims people "in the building" agree on Mac and Judge advocating for Zappe

    All true about Mac. And about Volin. :mad: Also true about Jalen Hurts, but a caveat: after starting as a true freshman and sophomore, Hurts played his entire junior season at Alabama as a backup to Tua (although playing plenty of important snaps) and by all accounts was the perfect teammate...

    NEW ARTICLE: Volin on Mac Jones: “The kid needed to be humbled” - UPDATED: Claims people "in the building" agree on Mac and Judge advocating for Zappe

    Well said, there are different styles of excellent writing. I thought I remembered you were a creative writing expert and long time teacher. Thank you for what you continue to do, education is a vital service to the community that is appreciated by too few IMHO. :) As an aside completely apart...

    NEW ARTICLE: Volin on Mac Jones: “The kid needed to be humbled” - UPDATED: Claims people "in the building" agree on Mac and Judge advocating for Zappe

    Interesting how opinions (brutal or otherwise) are so often referred to as "honesty". This is a thread about how Volin sprouts "hot take" brutal opinions that he pulls out of thin air with no factual basis (apart perhaps from a fake DM that he didn't check out, according to some reports) to...

    1/3rd of the way through the season, the offseason criticism of Belichick seems way off base

    One reason Jimmy G. only brought back a 2nd round draft pick is that I believe he was in the last year of his contract, and due a giant raise the next year. Mac still has 2 3/4 years on his rookie contract, so he is an absolute bargain financially. I don’t expect the team to move on from him...

    An FYI On Mac Jones

    People change as they get older. Mac is two years out of college, so maybe he has changed. However, clashing with his coaches certainly doesn’t sound like Mac at Alabama, he famously tried to follow the coach’s game plan to a “t”. I have to wonder if this is simply speculation on Flores part...

    Game Day Thread Official Game Day Thread- Lions @ Pats

    Last year Josh primarily tailored the offense to Mac's strengths (lots of runs, etc.), just like they are doing with Zappe this game. In preseason and early this year I got the impression that some combination of Patricia and BB decided to quit pulling back on the reins for Mac, try to install...

    Game Day Thread Official Game Day Thread- Lions @ Pats

    Agreed, obviously it isn't like Zappe is the next Patrick Mahomes, and Detroit has nothing in the defensive backfield, so it isn't exactly like they are playing the '85 Bears. ....However, there are plenty of rookie QBs (even some that became quite good) that couldn't play as well as he has...

    Game Day Thread Official Game Day Thread- Lions @ Pats

    After the game I would be interested in any follow-up you have on this, that isn't quite so evident to me, but IMHO you are one of the two or three most knowledgable posters on this Forum, I would be interested in your reasons and observations. The way that they seem similar is: both appear to...

    This years draft haul

    So other teams can say (with dismay):

    This years draft haul

    One thing that has driven my crazy over the last 20 years are pundits and posters who claim that the Patriots are lousy in the draft, when not taking into account their draft position. Because the Patriots had the best average record in the league (by far) from 2003-2019, they always were...

    Is Mac the guy for the future?

    The Fins should not have let Tua play the rest of Sunday or last night after that obvious concussion and it led to last night’s even more scary concussion. Even though the Fins added some pieces around Tua at WR and OL, that is just a really baaaadddd organization headed by a horrible owner, it...

    OT: Thinking of those who live on the West Coast of Florida

    I haven’t researched this, but off the cuff: If you mean the ocean tide going out then flooding in, the reasons are different. Ocean waves have crests and troughs. A tsunami is a giant wave of great amplitude and super long wavelength (resulting from some great shock like an earthquake), and as...
