#3141752 Bears benching Cutler, starting Clausen

Posted by Boltergeist on 18 December 2014 - 12:18 PM

Tweet of the day (re: Clausen): With win Sunday Jimmy Clausen would tie Mark Vlasic for most victories (2) by NFL QB named for a brand of pickle.



And as for the Cutler trade, it's interesting to see some of the names that got eventually got drafted in some slots that the Broncos traded away:


First in 09 Denver got Robert Ayers with the 18th pick, used the 84 (Mike Wallace) in a package to trade up to 64 and got Richard Quinn. The Bears used 140 that year to select Johnny Knox.


The 2010 pick Denver played ping pong first trading 11 (Anthony Davis: non unibrow edition) to SF for 13 and 113. Then 13 (Brandon Graham) went to PHI for 24, 70, and 87. DEN then trades 24 and 113 (Aaron Hernandez) to NE for 22 (also NE trades out of 24 to DAL who took Dez Bryant). With the 87 pick, DEN took Decker. That 70 pick (Ed Dickson), it got shipped to BAL along with 43 (originally received in the Marshall trade to MIA - which BAL used on Sergio Kindle), and 114 (Dennis Pitta) for none other than The Golden Calf of Bristol.

#3103417 Jets-Bills game likely moved

Posted by Boltergeist on 24 November 2014 - 05:50 PM

Cbs or nfl network showing the game?


CBS is but only in NY state markets, Erie, PA - Sunday Ticket subscribers too. I'd guess that there's some ESPN/MNF exclusivity agreement that would prevent another game from being on nationally while the MNF game is airing.

Charley Casserly ran the Texans drafts. 


He's been retired for a while now.


Most of your GM blame should go to Rick Smith

#3102639 Lack of quality in the NFL

Posted by Boltergeist on 23 November 2014 - 11:20 PM

The Rams and Chargers were playing a game of who could be better at being their own worst enemies. 2 Rams TD's called back, each team with a D score, 6 TOs, and it seemed like every penalty was extending a drive when it was dead. I'm almost surprised Gilchrist didn't McCree it on that last pick

#3092634 HC Candidates & their potential schemes

Posted by Boltergeist on 17 November 2014 - 12:43 AM

Bevell and Clements are both West Coast guys.


I'd expect Bowles to favor an E-P system like Arians.  Reich is running an E-P too (which seems like sacrilege in San Diego).


I'd add Brad Seely, who'd probably favor a WCO but has seen different systems.  Dave Toub's seen a lot of different systems too.  Hard to know what he'd pick.  If you go by his current job, WCO.


Assuming Sparano ran Coryell in MIA, Bowles was working under Coryell coaches from 05-11. He does have 1 WCO year with Reid as well, but if anything I'd hope the 2 years under Arians wizardry trumps it all.

are we seeing the Cowboys now merging onto Route 8-and-8

If Jerry Jones had gotten his way on draft day - we'd be seeing Manziel right now.

#3040361 TNF: Chargers (5-2) at Broncos (5-1)

Posted by Boltergeist on 24 October 2014 - 06:03 PM

This call in Denver cost San Diego a win.




Of course we got our revenge in Week 17 - which led to




With the Flowers/Verrett issues, we needed the perfect O game last night. I missed most of it because of work. I need to not work during SD games (5-1 when I'm off, 0-2 when I work).


As of now - we have 1 game in the next 22 days. The way MIA is playing though it may be a must win for potential tiebreakers. Get that and take the OAK/STL home games and we're back at 8-3. There are 5 games that I think we must win 4 of (all 5 would be better) - MIA/OAK/STL/BAL and KC in week 17 - that would be 10-6 with wins over MIA and BAL and 8-4 in the AFC which would be a plus against KC (who would have a 7-5 AFC if they lost to another AFC team beside SD/DEN). Hopefully the cavalry starts coming back.

#3018067 how does a tie work?

Posted by Boltergeist on 13 October 2014 - 12:57 AM

I was mulling over the idea that after twenty seasons of wins and losses the panthers were due for the infrequent tie at some point. And then I looked up this historical account of ties.


I realized that ever since the overtime rule changes were instituted, the nfl has had a tied game at least once per season, where up until that point with the old rules, ties had become relatively scarce over time. The tie in 2012 was a case where neither team scored for the entire period, so I guess you could attribute that to being part of the normal swing of things as the nfl were. The other two games, ours included, are cases where both teams scored field goals in overtime. So these rules definiteR games.

Without the new rules the Vikings would have lost that game last year and we would've lost this game today, so a tie doesn't look so bad.


Thank the 2008 AFC Wild Card Game for that - when San Diego won the toss and drove the length of the field and scored on a 22 yd Sproles TD. So for a bit after that we got to hear some media types acted like the idea that Peyton Manning didn't get a chance to get the ball in a playoff OT game was letting the terrorists win. That set the wheels in motion for the current OT rule. Funny thing is once again Peyton Manning ended up in that same situation in a regular season game (this yea's SEA game) and some treated it as this big injustice.


Also with the assist, Tampa blowing a lead in the 4th quarter 2 weeks earlier against San Diego (in TB). Bucs hold on to that lead, them and DEN get in the playoffs, meaning Gruden and Shanahan might have kept their jobs barring playoff gacks. Turner would be out in SD. Shanahan wouldn't have been available to WAS and they don't go after Griffin in the draft. The Rams got Brockers, Jenkins, Ogletree, Bailey and Stacy (also Isaiah Pead and Rokevious Watkins in a trade with the Bears for the Alshon Jeffery pick). It's the butterfly effect that keeps on giving.

That would really suck if the tattoo artist was pranking him and he was actually a Dolphins fan.


From the look on his face, he might still believe that is a Dolphin helmet

#3007382 Seattle pass D is currently Bottom 10 in the NFL

Posted by Boltergeist on 09 October 2014 - 01:21 PM

The Seahawks first 3 games were against Rodgers, Rivers, and Peyton. I'm willing to give them a pass on the early start. Now if they start giving up plays to Austin Davis, the Arizona pupu platter, or Derek Carr - then that might be reason for alarm
