  1. I don't really have a problem with Peter King, but I'm a big fan of Albert Breer. He writes great stuff.

    Julio Jones holding out

    So apparently, Jones has become friends with Terrell Owens, and that friendship is making the Falcons "uneasy" (PFT)
  3. I remember you talking about this before (in All Pro, I think).
  4. I get all that, but keep in mind we're not just talking about Shula. More than one person has stated the belief that Dorsey was much more buddy than coach. Shula? Yeah, Rivera may not have known, but we do know he was told. Voth confirmed there was pressure to fire him but Rivera refused. That's a little tougher to defend. As to Newton in general, Igo was actually of the opinion that the staff from Rivera on down has basically been afraid to say a negative word to him. You definitely can't coach effectively like that.
  5. All perfectly logical... Let's be real though: Regardless of their level of achievement, if Newton didn't respect his previous coaches, doesn't at least some of the blame for that have to fall on Ron Rivera?

    Don’t ask Cam about the SB fumble...

    To a point. Kids should be respectful, especially of someone who's doing a nice thing for them. The kind of people, kids or adults, who think getting on the radio or social media and disrespecting somebody famous somehow makes them a big deal are just idiots. I don't see them any different than the morons who used to make asses of themselves on American Idol as if that somehow made them "famous".

    You got a guy who doesn't owe you anything doing the kindness of putting on a football camp, and you act like that. I swear...
  8. Wasn't somebody already supposed to be doing that? I seriously have begun to question whether Ken Dorsey actually did anything that could correctly be referred to as "coaching". Even Shula as an OC seems to have been comfortable with just telling Cam "okay, do what you do". It's disappointing to think that all this talk about him having a plan on each play is something new.
  9. I definitely haven't read that 17 times before
  10. Try asking Rick Bonnell. He probably won't have a link but the story clearly made an impression on him, so he's likely to remember at least some of the details.
  11. Eeeehhh, it's possible, but plenty of guys who get cut or traded say the same thing. It's a little tricky to reconcile this with the fact that he and Newton were reportedly best friends.

    Ron Rivera Already On That BS

    It's an odd concept though, isn't it? Wanting someone to be good enough to win a job when your basic task is to figure out who actually is the best person for the job. Isn't hoping for somebody to be better then a particular guy kind of a tacit acknowledgement that guy isn't really all that good?
