  1. Sound FX: Superbowl 50

    When their defense does what they did.
  2. I think he actually hopes the team crashes and burns just so he can see Gettleman fired. It's beyond ridiculous.
  3. 2016 Schedule Notes

    I'm not giving up my Chick Fil-A nuggets, dammit!
  4. Matt Kalil to be cut?

    Throw in the added bonus of getting to kick his ass in practice drills. (yes, I have a brother)
  5. Matt Kalil to be cut?

    To be fair, Titan fans hated Oher too. If, as has been suggested, the problem is a lack of desire/passion for the game, I probably wouldn't bother. That'd likely just be Martin all over again. If it's something else though, he might just be worth a look. In this particular case, I'd say figuring out whether or not it's worth a shot is probably easier than usual because you have a resource that you don't generally have when it comes to this sort of thing.  If I'm Gettleman, I go ask his brother what's up.
  6. Those are the kind of judgments that Gettleman and Rivera have to make on an annual basis. And if they do happen to get it wrong, there's no reset button. When I was younger, I used to think being GM of an NFL team would be a cool job to have. Nowadays, I'm glad I'm not the one whose butt is on the line when it comes to these decisions.
  7. Cleavagegate

    I take it you're willing to stand with Piers on this, even in the face of such vicious, dastardly tactics?  Are you sure you're strong enough to withstand the assault?
  8. Mike Wallace expected to be cut

    You have to look at the reason why they were let go.  If they were let go for cap space, scheme fit, new coach or something along those lines, no problem. The word on Wallace is that he keeps getting let go because what he brings on the field isn't worth the pain in the ass he is in the locker room. He's basically Terrell Owens, only not that good.
  9. Forte won't be re-signed

    As Chicago beat writer pointed out that he would probably fit in Green Bay. Imagine the hissy fit if that happens.
  10. Boldin is a free agent

    Not a free agent.
  11. Mike Wallace expected to be cut

    Rule of Thumb: When a team lets a talented guy go, there's probably a reason. When multiple teams let a talented guy go, there's definitely a reason.
  12. Cleavagegate

    You're just saying that because you're intimidated at the thought of numerous women showing you their cleavage, aren't you?
  13. Ted Ginn Jr. Running Out of Bounds

    I think it's a typical fan reaction after a painful loss for some to go back and microanalyze things to such a degree that suddenly people start questioning whether Player X is "really as good as we thought he was". The reality: There's no such thing as a perfect player. Everyone has flaws. Even great players make mistakes and even great teams lose games. As to the toughness question, the Patriots long ago began coaching their receivers to basically curl up in a ball / run out of bounds / whatever to avoid taking big hits.  And given that defenders tend to try and hit a receiver as hard as they can, it's actually a pretty smart tactic.
  14. It's not so ridiculous.  Every single player you draft is not going to turn into an all-pro. Teams need depth too. I actually like Boston a lot. I'm not absolutely convinced he's consistent enough to be a full-time starter, but that doesn't mean I'd cut him. He has at the very least shown that he can be a contributor.
  15. what to do....

    I don't generally watch the 2003 game highlights when they come on either. One advantage of being a fan over being a player, a coach or even a beat writer: I don't want to relive the bad memories from that game or any other, I don't have to. Being forced out of necessity to rewatch and analyze film of some of the most heartbreaking moments of my career? Yeah, that would suck.
