For fans of Moncrief...

Colts likely moving on from Moncrief despite potential

Question is how much coin he'll demand.

Yes, please. I think he can be every bit as vital to our offense for a fraction of the cost. I know on the surface this reeks of the usual Panthers 'Dollar Store' style, but he has a lot of his future in front of him, and I'd like it here with Cam and CMC.

Plus....there's always this amazingly awful, yet phenomenally addictive video -

That’s love 

During his Hall of Fame speech, Steve Young told a story about his mom interjecting herself into his football career a little more directly.

It was his first game as a pee wee quarterback, and on the first play he got sacked. No damage, no injury, nothing of that sort. Just a plain old football tackle.

But Mom didn't take it well.

His mom got up, ran out of the stands, on to the field, grabbed the kid who tackled him by the face mask and started yelling at him :omg:

Had that been me, I probably would have claimed I didn't know this crazy woman. But ya know, Mom :)

Who would have thought that was the start of a Hall of Fame career?

Meanwhile in Seattle...

Nah, I think Seattle is making some smart moves. Releasing aging stars making a ton of money, freeing up space to improve the rest of the roster. They are a prime candidate to bounce back into the playoffs next season.

Most of their prior success was rooted in one really stellar draft.

I agree they have a good GM, but even  with a good GM that kind of draft success is not easy to repeat.

Seattle making the playoffs would surprise me. They've got a tough road in their own division. Frisco and LA are both on the rise with good young rosters and coaches.

Yep, for the last several years the Seahawks and Cardinals have been battling it out for that division while the Niners and Rams have been bottom dwellers. I think that might getting flipped upside down.

I've honestly never been that big a Pete Carroll fan. I think having a great roster probably got him more of that success than great coaching on his part.

The call to pass from the one was reported to be Carroll's call, not Bevell's. He was said to have wanted Wilson to be the hero rather than Lynch. 

That's a really stupid reason to make an in-game decision.

Definitely a tough division, but still way too early to know what's going to happen. I just think Seattle has the best QB in the division and with a few moves, less than the rest of the division needs to do, they could be right back in the playoffs.

The 49ers are definitely on the up and up, but also have a lot of holes. They have a ton of money to spend but that doesn't always equal wins. Jury definitely still out on Garropolo but early returns are certainly solid.

I think the Rams overachieved last season. I looked at their schedule from 2017 and they did have a pretty easy schedule. They did have some quality wins, but they just added a lot of personality with Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib. With a young head coach, heightened expectations, and a more difficult 2018 schedule, I think a little losing could be enough to absolutely implode that team. I see a trying 7-9 season for them next year. 

I'm not sleeping on the Cardinals either. They also have a lot of talent. David Johnson is a monster at RB and if he's healthy it could help whatever QB they get have a decent enough season to push them into the playoffs. They have a ton of talent on defense still and we all know Steve Wilks is smart and will have that defense playing well.
