  1. Signed in on off season break from the Huddle just to poo this POS post. Having been first on the scene of more than one trauma tragedy, and having seen how far too many people these days react (or don't react at all), kudos to the entire McC family, not just for what the boys did on scene, but the whole family visiting afterwards to lend their support. Far too little of that in this day and age.
  2. Clearly, DBs are going to take advantage of the new rule (if it passes), but what about the flip side of the coin in the short passing game?

  4. Keeping it all in house?

    For the LB coach position, if the NHL can have player/coaches, why not us? I know one guy who fits the bill. Holds a mean clipboard too.
  5. How did the Jaguars lose?

    There were many, many times this year where CMC in particular came out, chipped as often as not, and was open underneath for a 97% certain 5 to 7 yards, and for whatever reason, Cam didn't take the shot, and when I say whatever reason, I mean other than him being already on the ground, or pressured in such a way that he couldn't make the throw. It just didn't happen and I still don't know why. After seeing in the Saints game at home in person, I started watching for that throughout the year, and on average, I'd say it was at least two or three times per game, and yes, CMC was wide open...no need to thread the needle. The vast majority of the times I recall this occurring, Cam simply didn't see him, far more often than not, because he didn't look for it. This is not a slam on Cam, or CMC fanboyism, but an objective observation that remains a mystery. It's a pass any benchwarmer can make, so it isn't an ability issue like some have often said. If it doesn't happen as much next season with Turner calling the shots, I might have my answer.
  6. Could have been worse. They shoulda put Brady's face on the other dude.
  7. I know some guy recently made the news headlines by saying that Norwegians were cool people and all, but I had no idea they were THAT cool.
  8. I wish I could string a decade and a half of "luck" together like that, especially since that's probably all I have left, if that. Go ahead folks, spend your time looking for ways to hate on guys like them. Meanwhile, I'll use my time learning what I can from them, and, if nothing else, just keep a roof over my head. No doubt, luck is involved, and some, you just can't make, but counting on it to fall in your lap is sheer folly. When I needed a boost to get through a rough patch, as recently as this year, I rewatched some BB and/or TB clips and sound bites, etc., especially those from last year's SB. All I can say is, it helped...a lot.
  9. And what are their respective records of NFL success, in multiple terms, including rings as a head coach?
  10. No. He's making a not so subtle inference that the younger generation, OR (notice the "or") those people who, despite their age, still don't "get it," different "rules" often apply to different "classes" of people throughout life, which could not be a more true statement. Get used to it, do what you can to mitigate the impact, or if possible, change your "class," and brush up on the impact of someone using a conjunction in a sentence while you're at it.
  11. Using RR and BB in the same sentence, or conversation, cannot be done, unless you are speaking in terms of contrast, opposites, a "180," antithesis, etc. But, yeah, the same rules may not always apply to a perennial champion who adapts in a nanosecond to implement changes required to succeed, immediately and long-term, to one who stubbornly sticks to a philosophy with which, the only resulting consistent result is...inconsistency. TLDR: There's Belichick, and then, there's everyone else. Deal with it.
  12. Yeah, true on some of those bad penalty calls, but as far as TB player numbers go, man, that "font," especially from the side or on a wrinkled jersey, is not exactly well designed for immediate comprehension accuracy. If the same font was used on certain aircraft instruments, it would be raining airplanes on a daily basis.
  13. Signed in after taking a long time off just to pie this post of truth, with the exception of leaving out credit to some other players on both sides of the ball who, besides Cam, also came up big when it counted, and that includes the perennial punching bag here, Mr. Bersin (despite the bobble INT caused by a perfectly timed hit...(his hands are great, just maybe not on that one play)). Shula must be saving anything remotely "evolved" for next week or the playoffs, because I haven't seen such predictable offensive (in both meanings of the word) play calling in a long time. Yet again, many times CMC was open for a safe 5 to 7 yards, and almost never got the look, and since 13's departure, I don't blame Cam for locking onto another WR, but rather, apparently, CMC was never in the progression as a receiver on those plays, even as a checkdown. The D calls were either [almost] equally bad, and/or certain guys, the secondary in particular, often played like scrubs. For a head coach who is defensive minded, and prides himself on preventing the big play, I certainly didn't see evidence of that today. Although the pass rush was particularly impressive, I guess the "cost" was leaving some guys in back on an island, for which they had no survival skills or ability. I don't have the football smarts or lingo down pat like many here, but some of this stuff is obvious to anyone with an even halfassed good logical and objective, analytic mind. So many times today, on both sides of the ball, I saw the probable result before the snap...and I have an answer: More "You been watching' film? Cool, watch this!" and less Stewart up the middle for little or no gain, or the half dozen Shula call equivalents. WTF happened to the offense we've seen for the past month? PS-Shout out to Pep. Dude is still amazing and nothing would be finer than for him to be back in Carolina, and get a ring this time.
  14. Wake up Call

    1. Cam played like (insert name of your favorite third string backup here). Horrible accuracy. Questionable decisions. Going for broke into double coverage when again and again, CMC was wide open for a first down plus. On a good number of plays, it seemed like he wasn't covered just because the defense knew Cam wasn't going to even consider the check down. 2. Receiving corps overall didn't do much to help their struggling QB. 3. Entire secondary looked like scrubs over half the time they were on the field, and that was with solid play from the front seven, which is supposed to make jags look good. 4. Shula. Moments of brilliance wrapped up in multiple layers of lunacy. PS... Me. We missed the first play on offense. We gotta hit rewind. Wife. Why? Stewart up the middle for a couple yards. Me. Nah, Shula finally is starting to figure it out. Wife. Okay, back it up. Me. Hits rewind, then play. Both. ROFLMFAO.
