The Phins/Brady/Payton/Fores puts the NFL between a rock and a hard place

I didn't see this recently mentioned, but the Phins/Brady/Payton/Flores saga is putting the NFL between a rock and a hard place having to choose between investigating aspects of tampering (in this case I guess Tampa-ing) by Phins owner Ross in attempting to recruit Brady (as far back as 2020 on Ross' yacht with Flores present) and Sean Payton, which then would substantiate Flores claims and aid his lawsuit against the NFL about Rooney rule violations.  The Flores suit also is alleged to have been the reasoning behind Brady's short lived retirement, since the Phins long term plan became exposed.  The plan basically was for TB to retire from TB and then join the Phins as an executive.  At a later date his playing rights would be forced to be traded to the Phins also, then he would unretire and play for Miami under a "proven" coach--Payton--leading to the termination of Flores.

Also recently unearthed from 18 months ago is a Mike Mularkey interview where he states how he regrets being part of the violations that occurred when he was told by the Titan's owner that he was hired, prior to minority candidate interviews, and then watched candidates without a chance be brought in.

Lastly our own Steve Wilks has joined the Flores lawsuit, perhaps making it harder for the NFL to ignore the situation.

    • I personally think they should have moved Pride to Safety.  Plays well in soft zone coverage (facing the QB, in other words) and he has some speed and size.  Oh well.
    • well, he needs more than that.  He needs playcalling.   You can have a decent OL and talent....but if you are running a predictable and unimaginative O then your talent basically all gets downgraded.  McAdoo still has some legit redflags.  While Eli did have 2 great statistical seasons while he was OC,  McAdoo's head coaching tenure was defined by predictable and very unimaginative offense.   So there still are some question marks on if Eli (a SuperBowl/Pro Bowl ) QB simply took advatnage of OBJ being an intital problem for folks to cover and it not being create actual playcalling and scheme.   And it also makes me nervous the league almost deemed him unemployable until we gave him this OC job.  Heck, if Matt Rhule said no thanks to Ben twice being his QB coach.....then suddently his is good enough to be OC. 
    • Schuyler Callihan chimed in with a rookie Camp observation as well... They really didn't throw the ball downfield much with Corral over the weekend. It was a lot of underneath stuff and some play-action that had him rolling to both sides. When he did stand firm in the pocket, he looked comfortable. The five and seven step drops are something that will take some time for him to get used to, but this offense will primarily run out of the gun anyway. On tape, Corral had one of the quickest releases I've seen. In person, it looked even quicker. It's a natural, effortless motion that is something I haven't seen before. He was very accurate with the ball and on the few shots they did take downfield, he put it right on the money.  Link Not sure about the shotgun thing. I don't remember enough about McAdoo's offense to know if that's true. Callihan did also have this to say about first round pick Ikem Ekwonu's camp... Ekwonu already looks the part. It's easy to see why everyone in the Panthers' building calls him a tone-setter. There were a couple of times that he nearly ran the guy (another lineman) holding the pad into the ground. He's just a massive human being who has tremendous strength. He'll be starting at left tackle from day one.
