  1. RR is getting close to his “use by this time” date of 10 years. Players start closing their ears and minds to the “I’ve heard it all before “ and teams get comfortable with keys and how he coaches games. Tepper’s association with the Steelers history of coaching continuity only goes so far. His first job has been to build from the ground up with the practice field and new HQs. Now he’s building the team infrastructure with analytics and coaching management. He’s putting everything in place to attract the very best players and coaches going forward. My sense is that he has his ear to the ground and is looking for the next young “genius” coach. When he identifies him he’ll make a change. Marty could be retained, but the GM choice will be like the Jets, someone who shares the coaches vision.
  2. One of the issues not getting as much notice is that Tampa squatted on his contract past the open of free agency and the draft. Once he refused to take a pay cut they should have released him. Most teams do. Keeping him until they did probably cost him at least a couple of million a year plus a longer term contract. I’m glad Tampa took this route or the Panthers wouldn’t have gotten him, but it was a small minded move and future players will take notice.
  3. The reason that RR was so miffed at the over the fence photo of Cam was that he is now ambidextrous and will be throwing both right handed AND left handed
  4. This may be one of those medical situations where you would rather have an ACL that is repairable vs a brain injury that may not have a specific solution.
  5. Doesn’t require cap room or a roster spot. It has a Tepper Steeler connection and only requires RR to acknowledge that he is willing to listen. Make a call to a HOF CB/Coach who is considered the father of the zone blitz.... Dick LeBeau. He was let go by Tennessee last year and is a football junkie with an enormous wealth of 3-4 knowledge. Bring him on as a consultant and open your ears and minds. He not only has front seven expertise but early on as a secondary coach almost always oversaw double digit interceptions. We could use a “Godfather” with Super Bowl experiences.
  6. Does the deal include Love giving up 93?
  7. Want to go to the Super Bowl for $100. The Panthers are 25:1 to win the NFC. Should be able to get a nosebleed seat plus some rough transportation/lodging for the $2500.
  8. Like to see them move Jackson to nickel and give him the authority to jump routes. Standing out by Luke diagnosing plays he is a pick six waiting to happen. If we’re going to the playoffs, we’ll have to create many more turnovers than last year.
  9. If Tepper is truly invested in analytics, he should hire the viral Jeopardy guy. For as long as that program has been on, he is the first to totally break the code. Maybe he can break the football code as well. My sense is that Tepper likes to hire people who are smarter than him and think outside the box.
  10. I thought Halloween was in October.
  11. The best thing that could happen is for Cam to feel doubted. He has always played better as an underdog wanting to prove people wrong. It keeps him focused. Come on, keep it up, get the juices flowing.
  12. Are they going to be in pads or shells?
  13. When Hurney didn’t take another CB by the fourth round, it’s a pretty good indication that he’s comfortable that he can resign Bradbury.
  14. So which Huddler would you expect to get hired. Lot of tape being watched leading to pound the table opinions. Resumes starting to fly. The next Verge confident?
