Sorry, I'm not as frequent a poster here as I'd like to be, so my apologies if this was already posted (but after a quick look I didn't see it).
Mike Vrabel, coach of the Titans and former Pats player/BB student, made a genius coaching decision that should be getting more attention.
Looks like this is Wes Welker's first year of eligibility, I hope he gets in this year. I just finished reading Darkness to Dynasty, and definitely think Chuck Fairbanks and Bill Parcells deserve a shot too.
New England Patriots News 8-18, AFC East Notes
With a healthy Julian Edelman, N’Keal Harry, and a reacclimated Gordon at WR, all of a sudden the WR position projects to one of strength.

What a crop of very inexperienced new head coaches. What happened to being a DC or OC for several years and winning a championship? As comparison BB won 2 rings as a Giants DC and had coached 4+ units before becoming Browns HC.
Now you have multiple guys who are QB coaches, never even ran a...

Big Game Before the Bye
The New England Patriots head down to Nashville to take on the Tennessee Titans on Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. If it seems rare to have a Sunday afternoon game, it has been. The Patriots have played four of...
The Titans are truly a mixed bag of a team. This year they have been one of the elite defenses in the NFL. It's hard to find a defensive area they have been bad in.
They do give up a nice chunk of rushing yards per game but their rushing yard average surrendered isn't high. It looks more...
Should be interesting to watch them tonight.
I see PFF now has Malcolm ranked as the #81 CB in the league with a grade of 58.9 (which is ranked Average). I think he is playing better than he was though.
Lewis has 476 yards from scrimmage in 7 games. Had a great game vs the Chargers in week 7...
I must say color me impressed with the way Vrabel has been coaching the Titans with some really ballsy calls in today's game and last weeks defensive stand outplaying the Jags on defense.
On paper the Titans really are devout of talent on both sides of the ball but they seem to be playing over...
I was very pleased to hear just a minute ago on the radio that Mike Vrabel is making some short lists as a possible HC candidate around the league. A few teams have expressed interest. As far as I know, he is the ONLY player that BB said NEVER made a mistake or was out of place in his whole...
