The key to beating Aaron Rodgers and the Packers...

16 October 2014 - 11:55 AM

is to get up by 9+ points in the 2nd half:

It’s when the quarterbacks’ teams are down 9 or more points in the second half that you really see the difference. Peyton Manning throws interceptions on 15.6 percent of his drives, compared to Rodgers’ 8.1 percent. And for that, Manning is punished … by winning 28.6 percent of these games. Rodgers, meanwhile, wins 0 percent. That’s right, Rodgers has zero comebacks of 9 or more points in the second half. Ever.

Pats waive WR Kenbrell Thompkins

#Patriots waived WR Kenbrell Thompkins.

Per source, Kenbrell Thompkins was told the Patriots could bring him back next week, if he clears waivers.
 
I like the WRs we have, but Thompkins could be an intriguing flyer. Had 32 rec for 466 yards and 4 TDs last year. 
 
Also, let's just claim him for as payback for Gaffney.

At what point does Rivera consider the nuclear option...

and can Shula? With the bye coming so late this season (Week 12), it would have to be a mid-week move if we want to salvage playoff hopes. He's got a ready-made playcaller in-house, in the waiting, who he's worked with before in John Ramsdell:

 

Panthers hire John Ramsdell as offensive assistant
 
The Panthers have hired longtime NFL assistant coach John Ramsdell to serve as a senior offensive assistant.
 
Ramsdell fills the vacancy created when former offensive quality control coach Lance Taylor left to take a position at Stanford.
 
Ramsdell, 59, worked with Philip Rivers as San Diego's quarterbacks coach from 2006-2012 when Panthers coach Ron Rivera was a Chargers assistant.
 
Ramsdell spent 11 years in St. Louis in a variety of offensive roles from 1995-2005 -- a stretch that included the Ram's Super Bowl season of 1999 with an offense dubbed the 'Greatest Show on Turf.'

 

 

This hire happened on March 31, 2014. Almost exactly 6 months ago. You have to think Rivera didn't make this hire for the hell of it. I can't believe Ron would be willing to tank the season with Shula's vanilla playcalling...
