#909107 Harbaugh expected to accept extension?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 06 December 2010 - 01:17 PM

harbaugh = bobby petrino, butch davis, steve spurier, lindy infante, pete carroll, lane kiffin, ...do i need to continue ?

Pete Carroll was an NFL head coach (twice) before becoming a college head coach.

Butch Davis was a successful defensive coordinator in the NFL before taking a college coaching job.

Lindy Infante was an offensive coordinator on a Super Bowl team before taking his NFL head coaching job.

Lane Kiffin wasn't a college head coach before taking the Raiders job. He was a position coach (the Raiders were just that desperate).

As far as college coaches coming to the NFL, there are also successful examples like John Robinson and Jimmy Johnson. Guys like Saban and Petrino soured a lot of the current NFL on the idea, but it's not like no college coach has ever made the successful transition. Throw in that Harbaugh was a fifteen year NFL player and spent two years on NFL coaching staff.

To answer the question, I would say no, you don't need to continue because the examples you've already given don't really prove anything. Most of them weren't even comparable.

By the way Del, how's that job at the Suicide Hotline going? :eek:

What sucks is that if Lori is pregnant, they probably won't be able to determine the father since, in all likelihood, Maury Povich is dead :(

#907722 Jason Baker deserves his own thread

Sauerbrun for Baker is one of the best trades the team has made.

#905807 DeSean Jackson

Posted by Mr. Scot on 04 December 2010 - 10:04 PM

Being reported in a few sources (linked by PFT) that Jackson has been displaying some very diva-like behavior, including refusing to field punts in practice, trying to avoid any sort of short or crossing routes because he might have to take a hit and spending more time texting his agent than paying attention in practice.

Some have also said he's "alligator-arming", i.e. not going all out for passes thrown to him if it looks like he might take a hit. In the midst of this, Jackson is also lobbying for a big payday.

Story is that some of his Eagle teammates are a tad "put off" by this. And Eagle head Coach Andy Reid reportedly ripped him a new one after one of their most recent games.

Do you sympathize, given that he's already suffered a couple of concussions, or do you think he's being a pansy?

#905145 Harbaugh / Luck Question #2

Posted by Mr. Scot on 04 December 2010 - 01:05 AM

Everyone who is using Clausen is just proving my point. Yes Clausen was everything Luck was coming out of college, and according to you guys, he sucks. So why would we want another one?

If you think people said the same things about Clausen that they're saying about Luck, I seriously doubt you read the scouting reports on either of them.

Luck has scouts drooling in a way they haven't since Peyton.

#904342 Harbaugh / Luck Question #2

Posted by Mr. Scot on 03 December 2010 - 01:40 PM

How many games as potential won? None. Manning went 3-13 his rookie year, according to you they should have bailed after 1 year and have drafted Daunte Culpepper the next year cuz of "potential".

Everyone said the same thing about Jimmy last year, what is your point? What is your man-crush on Luck about anyway, shouldnt that be hidden in your closet?

ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski says that Clausen might be the most ready-to-play quarterback in this year's rookie class. And it was Clausen's play in the fourth quarter that won him over.

"He wants the ball in his hands," Jaworski says. "He's LeBron James. He's Michael Jordan. With the game on the line, he wants to make the difference.

"He clearly projects to be an outstanding National Football League quarterback. And I believe he's only scratched the surface."

How many snaps had Clausen taken in the NFL before he was drafted?

People said plenty of positive things about Clausen last year , but no one talked about him the way they're talking about Luck. There was debate as to whether he was even the best QB prospect in his class. People are talking about Luck being the best QB prospect in over a decade, and no one else in this year's class is even close.

If you have even half a brain, there is no way you pass on that.

#903831 I think everyone has a story like this or similar to it.

Don't remember what I had eaten, but the road to Beckley, WV is a curvy, nasty one. I was about eight or nine, and I felt sure I was going to throw up but my Dad was in an extremely bad mood and I was scared to ask him to stop.

When it finally got to be too much, I hung my head out the window and let fly. We were probably doing around 40-50 mph at the time.

The result was a puke brown splatter/stripe down the back side of my Dad's blue Lincoln Continental. It had the shape of flame detailing, but obviously not the consistency.

No one noticed until we got out of the car. Mom theorized that we must have hit a patch of mud that splattered the car.

I agreed that was the most likely cause :sosp:

Pretty boring interview.

Something tells me he got called "Assnutz" a time or two growing up.

#900081 would JR even pay for a #1 pick?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 01 December 2010 - 12:22 AM

JR has gone cheap one year out of 16, with a new CBA looming and everyone thinks it's permanent, LOL

Yeah. Seriously, can we just stop this silliness? :nonod:

Richardson took advantage of an uncapped year to dump "bad money" and hopefully set us up for years to come. But in prior years, we've had a team that's had little to no cap room. Why? Because we were spending it.

And for all the consternation, we're not even the lowest spending team in the league this year (seven or eight teams are below us, if I recall correctly).

Yet numerous people whose memories apparently don't extend further back than this past offseason whine about Richardson being cheap :nonod:

#900019 Who is the core?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 30 November 2010 - 11:31 PM

Who is the core?

He's one of those moronic nimrods from "Jersey Shore", isn't he? :sosp:

(wrong guy?) :confused:

#898805 Guys, do you agree with this?

Posted by Mr. Scot on 30 November 2010 - 12:25 PM

For me it's always been waist to hip ratio, or the hourglass if you will.

Nothing drives me crazy like a curvy woman.

Curves are nice.

I tend to take in the overall image rather than concentrating on one thing.

#895707 Potential Head Coaches

Posted by Mr. Scot on 28 November 2010 - 09:21 PM

It's not so much a 'spend less" philosophy as it is a "spend wisely" one.

Both Dom Capers and John Fox got decent extensions after Richardson felt they'd earned them. Sadly, Capers' payday was a tad premature.

Still, the idea was solid. Bring them in while they're on the rise. let them prove that they can win in this environment. Then pay them the big money. that way, even if they don't succeed, you haven't blown a big wad of cash.

It's the same principle they apply to players by preferring draftees over free agents.
