I'm just happy he's out of the NFC East, yeah he never won the big one but he put out a consistently good to great team for about a decade straight. Hopefully the Iggles suck it up for a few years to restore the balance.

If they land him, this will be the most excited I've been since Priest Holmes was farting TDs left and right. Just the idea of the stability he'd bring makes me giddy.

Come now, surely Andy Reid's jig would be jiggliest of all.

Chip Kelly went from reportedly having a done deal to now interviewing with Buffalo and Philly, although the Browns are "favored".

 

It ain't happening.

post #2456 of 3167

Pshh, who wants Chip Kelly?  Don't you know Todd Haley is out there!?

post #2457 of 3167

I just can't stop picturing Haslam saying "Here's the best contract in NFL history" and Kelly saying "Yeahhhhh...so, Cleveland huh?" then calling his agent.

I still don't get why a college coach would leave for the NFL.  Other than Jimmy Johnson can't think of another college coach that has had success in the NFL. Plus, all the openings for coaches have a severe lack of a competant QB.

Because they get a huge NFL payday, and, if it doesn't work out, they can get a different, but often equally prestigious job when they're forced back into the college ranks.  Not to mention the challenge of coaching the best of the best.  Plus no worrying about NCAA compliance/sanctions with the pros.

 

Really, the only reason they wouldn't go to the NFL is if they have loyalty to their school, or the personal situation (family, etc...) is driving the bus

Vikings are gonna pull it out, just you watch.

Love the new captions. This article gets richer every week.
post #2464 of 3167

Thanks.  I thought the four games made the pictures much easier to deal with and more focused.

Harbaugh's doing pretty well too. And I imagine the lure of money and being in the highest level of football is what normally entices, even with the exceptional failure rate.

 

I just really hope Seattle loses. Being a 49ers fan, I don't want to be put in a situation where Akers blows another game against them. I'm more scared of them than any other team in the NFC to be honest.

post #2466 of 3167

Ehhh... I'd rather play Seattle than Green Bay.  Playing at home, hopefully with a healthy Justin Smith, should be quite different from playing in Seattle.  Green Bay is getting healthier by the week, are starting to find a semblance of a running game, will basically have their full complement of receivers for the first time in forever, and, it should be noted even though it's the most glaringly obvious thing in football, have the best damn QB.

post #2467 of 3167

I think situations are different for each of the college coaches that have come into the league. In Johnson and Harbaugh, you have two insanely driven guys who had the ambition. Spurrier got a sweet paycheck. Switzer inherited the best team in the league and partied his balls off while his team got a trophy for him.

 

Kelly doesn't strike me as the insanely driven type, but we'll see.

post #2468 of 3167

Harbaugh also took over a very well put together team. Singletary helped mold that team nicely. True, he couldn't really coach for a damn but remember, he also set Vernon Davis straight. How many other coaches would send one of their biggest stars to the locker with about a half left in the game for his shitty behavior on the field?

post #2469 of 3167

Yeah, it's really just pointless to lump college coaches into one big group.  If you've heard the stories of Spurier with the Redskins, the guy was the exact opposite of NFL level intense.  I've heard ex-players knock his coaching and schemes as amateur hour, basically.

post #2470 of 3167

There's a link a few pages ago I posted (or maybe it's in the NCAA thread) with some Spurrier NFL stories. Pretty funny. Like he said to Dan Patrick on Friday (paraphrasing here) "When it comes to football, I'm an August to January guy."

 

Also wanted to chime in that I like the formatting of the photos as well.

Not to mention that as far as Saban being the poster boy, he had a 9-7 season, and was 15-17 overall (his 2nd season, he went 6-10 but his QBs were Joey Harrington, Daunte Culpepper, AND Cleo Lemon)....hardly the flaming trainwreck it's usually portrayed as. It's tough to win with terrible QB play in the modern NFL. 

post #2472 of 3167

Just wanted to bring up that I thought Burfict would be a quality LB before this past draft and it looks like I was right. Course, I take full credit for the Bengals coaching staff doing an amazing job of teaching this kid up. Though, going undrafted must have been a motivating factor to absorb everything he could and play up to his potential, in the end, I'm glad the guy got his shit together.

post #2473 of 3167

I want you all to think of this when you hear the name "Vontaze Burfict" because that's what I do....

"We are VONTAZE BURFICT and this is our new song, 'Abominable Putridity' " 

post #2475 of 3167

Ponder out for Minny.  Webb to start.  Fun while it lasted Minny.  I'm changing my pick to GB.

post #2476 of 3167

Unfortunately for the Vikings, Joe Webb only has the "secret" part of secret weapon down.

post #2477 of 3167

Is Ponder injured, or are the Vikings in the process of outsmarting themselves? 

post #2478 of 3167

Apparently his arm is a little bit hurt.  Weird, since it doesn't take that much strength to hand it off to Adrian Peterson.

post #2479 of 3167
That's a huge blow to the Vikings. Their second string hasn't thrown a single pass this season? They're going to blitz the shit out of him in the first quarter, and leave him frazzled the rest of the game.

I hope Peterson's ready to bring 200% tonight.

If his right arm is hurt, he could just throw lefty. It might even help!

Run the option!  Or what I used to run on Madden back on Sega Genesis, the fake punt pass offense.

post #2482 of 3167
Thread Starter 

Ponder had an elbow issue his senior year at FSU.  They were draining like 200cc of fluid out of it after games.  He had a last minute scratch like this for the ACC CG vs. Va Tech and EJ Manuel played instead.  Makes me feel better about my Packers pick, because my Bengals pick is making me look like I bungled it.  Ha ha.  Get it?

post #2483 of 3167

I can't imagine how frustrating this game must've been for Houston fans. The Texans should've won about 31-6. All I did was make a friendly wager on them, and I'm pissed at Schaub and Kubiak for keeping the Bengals in the game.

 

NE trounces them (again) next week. No line is high enough.

post #2484 of 3167

Chavez, I disagree.  Saban...Sucks!  I hope he stays at Alabama with a...Banjo On His Knee!  The top receiver in Mondays BCS Title Game will be...Manti Te'o of Notre Dame!

post #2485 of 3167

Minnesota may win this game without throwing a single pass. Peterson is carving them up.

post #2486 of 3167

I still hope Minny wins.  This 1st drive gives me hope.

The key play on that first Minny drive was the Webb 3rd down run. 

post #2488 of 3167

No way that was a GB touchdown. Screw this game.

post #2489 of 3167

And now Webb has me thinking this game is over.  TWO toss up passes.

It was totally a td, sorry. Also, this is why people should shut up about benching Ponder this year as now you get a jumpy QB who would rather run than pass (Vicking it). Those two passes he threw when being sacked, damned dangerous.

I know I'm biased, but if you look at it, that ball broke the plane before his knee was down. 

 

 

Now if I were COACH, I probably wouldn't have burned a challenge there, but it DID correct a bad (albeit CLOSE - I'm not mad at the refs for missing that one) call. 

post #2492 of 3167

I'm not saying the Vikings deserve to be winning or anything, I just don't think that call deserved to be overturned. I don't have a dog in this hunt.

post #2493 of 3167

Game over.

 

Now I just hope Indy wins to see the Manning/Luck match up.

post #2494 of 3167

This is a very Stoney Case-esque performance from Joe Webb.

post #2495 of 3167
Alright, my drunken Superbowl prediction is Broncos against the 49ers, with the Broncos winning 24-20.

And yes, I realize that that's not as bally a pic now that two playoff games are done,but there you have it.
post #2496 of 3167
Mine is Denver vs. Seattle for the AFC West Title! Um mean for the Lombardi Trophy!
post #2497 of 3167

My Superbowl Pick is...Seattle vs New England, with the...Seahawks Winning!  There will be much...CAROLing, if Bill gets...belliCHECKed again!

I kinda love the fact that Bill Simmons pulled a "Seattle Super Bowl win!" out of his ass in the pre-season and right now they look about as good as anyone in the NFC. 

 

 

This year has been so fucking weird. I don't know that I'd call ANY win ANYWHERE right now an "upset." 

post #2499 of 3167

You guys are kooky.  Russell Wilson is not winning a Super Bowl in his first year.

Yet another reason Seattle is not winning.  Bill Simmons talking football is cringeworthy.
