  1. Unfortunately, we probably won't know how it really went down until well after both Rhule and Fit are gone, and maybe not even then.
  2. No GM who gave a up 2nd and a 4th for Sam Darnold gets to be called great. That's a deep hole to dig out of.
  3. I'd look at the Jets Mike LaFleur as well. He had Flacco playing well and even had an UDFA Mike White putting up numbers last year.
  4. Johnson is an OC. He doesn't' coach Okudah. I'm on board.
  5. I picked up Garrett as well. I hope Zach Wilson uses Garrett as much as Flacco did.
  6. [I can just see the huddle posts now: "Look at his record as a starter", "Undrafted guy , he's just like Jake, LFG!"]
  7. Good news, everyone. I dropped DJ Moore from my fantasy team (weird league with no bench slots). This invariably means he will go OFF on Sunday. You can thank me later.
  8. There was a story that came out right after the trade that the only reason it got done was Tepper told Fitterer/Rhule that if it didn't get done by July 4th, it wasn't happening. The trade happened July 5th. We know not everyone was onboard with bringing in Mayfield and there was internal conflict on making the trade. Had Tepper not stepped in, the internal struggle would have continued and the trade might have happened even later, if it happened at all.
  9. Strange that his height wasn't an issue when he was leading Cleveland to the playoffs?
  10. It's three midgets standing on top of one another in trench coat. You've got the Sean Payton interpretation of the WCO McAdoo inherited, the more traditional WCO he ran in Green Bay, and a heavy dose of the RPO plays that Baker and Corral would have experience with from their college days. Those midgets are wobbling an awful lot and the pants are slipping down...
  11. We started taking the kids around 8 years old, but only to preseason games. Their attention span was only good for about one half, so we'd go back to the hotel at half time and I'd watch the second half from there.
  12. I thought this was going to be about how in the world Tua was allowed to go back in the game on Sunday.
  13. I said week 8 if Baker doesn't improve his play. The next four games are Cardinals, 49ers, Rams, Buccaneers. A record of 2-5 after those four games is well within the range of outcomes. At that point, pressure will be mounting on Rhule, Darnold will be recovered [from his injury] and Rhule might want a "spark".
  14. As Panthers fans, we've seen first hand how hard it is to replace a franchise QB. They didn't want to go through that.
  15. It depends on if you mean had a winning record at the time of the game or finished the season with a winning record. Of Matt Rhule's 10 wins in 2020 and 2021, only 2 have come against teams that finished the year with a winning record: 2021 Week 10 over Arizona (w/o Kyler Murray), finished 11-6. 2021 Week 2 over New Orleans (displaced by hurricane), finished 9-8.
  16. I feel bad for Fields. Nagy his first year, and then they hire a defensive head coach and working under a first-time OC. They did nothing at WR this offseason. Trevor looked pretty bad this rookie year, too. But JAX went out and got a offensive minded head coach and a Christian Kirk. Jacksonville also has a first-time OC but at least he can lean on Pederson's experience. Trevor looks worlds better now.
  17. 60.8% of our passing yards came on one play... 60%!!
  18. I'm thrilled we won, but it's okay to acknowledge it took two low percentage plays (defensive touchdown, blocked kick) to win. Counting on those happening every week doesn't seem like a reasonable expectation.
  19. A record of 2-5 after that stretch seems like a reasonable expectation.
  20. First step is to start acquiring as much draft capital as we can. Here's a start:
  21. We only get 17 of these a year so I try to watch as many as I can. Hope for the best, prepared for the worst.
  22. That's one thing I like about Mike Lafluer. He's putting up yards and points with Joe Flacco (beat Cleveland in week 2) and had UDFA Mike White throwing for 400 yards last season.
