Easterby was reportedly a big piece in why Hopkins.


"
One source told Sports Illustrated that on multiple occasions in 2019, Easterby told a small group of people that “we need to move on from that person,” referring to Hopkins without using the wideout's name. Another source told SI that they later learned the Texans discussed trading Hopkins as early as the summer of 2019. "

i believe Easterby....Krafty had a skank while Myra's body was still warm...just bc Krafty donates $ to "social justice" doesn't mean he's an upstanding guy.

I have absolutely no interest in defending the honor of a guy who became a billionaire off real estate, but I think most of us just see this as Easterby indiscriminately lashing out at anyone but himself for the criticism he receives.

I mean the fact of the matter is the reporters on the story already came out and denied Kraft was a source or that they provided Easterby any of their sources for him to credibly say who they were regardless.

So basically the chaplain is a liar.

Stuff like this makes it look like BOB was just a scapegoat. They gave him the HC and GM duties but how much power did he actually have? Comparing his relative success at Penn State vs in Houston makes me scratch my head.

Rumor is that after Cal's father died and a few executives left, Cal was left to run the team with basically know trusted top tier guys. He very quickly found Easterby who he is very close to and supposedly prays with. And yes BoB was a pretty good coach, his GM'ing was the culprit. However, if things like this are accurate, I can't blame him for that.

He should get down on his knees and thank the heavens he was even associated with the pats organization. He would not be where he is today if that doesn’t happen.

What’s your issue with Kraft making billions off of real estate? Just curious.

I’ve already pointed out my astonishment at how important religion is in the US. And, I suspect, particularly in areas where many of the top football players come from (Southern states). It’s mind blowing that there would be employees on a big business whose primary role is religion-based.

Dabo Swinney is a great coach. If I were a top ranked HS football player, I would definitely play for... Alabama or some other place and never even visit Clemson. At Clemson, you better be born again.

It's BOB's own fault. He's the one that encouraged them to hire Easterby in the first place.

There are distinct and important lines between "character development" and religion. He doesn't use them apparently.
It is probably a good idea to have a staff member who specializes in developing the players' emotional intelligence, psychological self awareness, and constructive social behavior. They have specialists for every other kind of development, and the big college programs have about given up on it as one of their responsibilities.
But to honor our social code, that person needs to clearly not be pushing a belief system.
Not being cute : do you believe a guy like Easterby was refraining from pushing religion ? I have my doubts, but maybe I’m mistaken.

Many black people are religious, no matter what part of the country they come from. Where are you from? If I remember correctly, didn’t you say you were from New Zealand at one point in time? Or am I mistaking you for someone else?
Someone else maybe. I’m from NS Canada. My parents, now in their 70s, are religious. Most of the people I know are not religious whatsoever. In fact, I can only think of a few people (less than 10) under 60 that I know that are religious.
