  1. Using that logic, Daniel Snyder should be a great owner too. The ability to make loads of money doesn't equal football knowledge anymore than it means you know how to ride a horse or drive a tank. Yes, as the owner of the team he can make it his personal plaything if he wants to. That is, if he's okay with the product on the field being dog sh-t. If he actually wants it to be good, then he should hand it over to the people who know what they're doing.
  2. Minshew to me is Jake Delhomme with more athleticism and a porn stache. And yes, that's an upgrade over Teddy Bridgewater (stache included).
  3. Agreed, though Cronkite's effectiveness is somewhat minimalized by his being dead. (granted, that works against Murrow as well)
  4. Then why did we try to trade for Matt Stafford?
  5. Agreed. Murrow was way more accurate and better at reading defenses.
  6. Not sure whether we're interested in Sam Donaldson or not, but if "in on every deal" applies here, we might talk about it.
  7. You're referring back to David Newton's bold prediction as an "insider statement"? Yikes!
  8. The common discussion with that saying is whether it's meant to be a blessing or a curse. I'd say it's a valid question.
  9. Last year's football guys included a PR guy who was mistakenly given a job as a football guy.
  10. I was looking for a spleen pun but couldn't come up with a good one. Old Chinese saying: "May you live in interesting times."
  11. I'm saying Voth said it's not a realistic scenario. His exact words: So while it’s easy to toss his name on top of speculation, the reality is something different. He added this as a follow-up: Conversation wouldn’t have been as fun if they had to say, “Deal would have to include other players that aren’t as well known nationally.” As I recall, this was in response to David Newton's "bold prediction". You can continue to speculate about it as much as you want, but it's not realistic.
  12. Oh I don't know. Maybe to like, write an article for the team site, because that's your job. Just a thought...
  13. You think a guy with direct access to somebody on the team is going to look up answers on the internet instead? Oy...
  14. We've got some people wanting it to happen with regard to Watson. What I'd point out there are two things: 1) You never want the guy with the least amount of knowledge in the room to be the one dictating the decisions. 2) If it starts with Watson, highly unlikely it stops there.
  15. Voth actually does work in the building, for the Panthers, and can ask Samir Suleiman a direct question anytime he would like. Does Spotrac have an Insider with the team?
  16. Kellen Mond? Really? That's almost a bigger question mark to me than ranking Wilson above Lawrence.
  17. We don't know jack sh-t at this point. That could be good...or not. Hopes for the best are valid. Unfortunately, concerns for the worst are as well. Heck, we don't really know much about Fitterer just yet either.
  18. Fanspeak doesn't concern me. Comments from analysts about Tepper being obsessed, willing to do anything, pay any price, etc... Those give me pause. As mentioned above, his saying that we need a QB isn't a problem. Dictating what we do to get that QB is another story, especially if it overrides people who know more than him.
  19. Tepper admitted he was the one who suggested that Rivera switch to a 3-4. And honestly, I don't care how "different a cat" he is. I do care whether he meddles as an owner. I think the last thing anybody wants is the guy who said that Marty Hurney was one of the best talent evaluators in the league influencing football decisions; coaching, personnel or otherwise.
