  1. This is where I can't decide if this is the coaching staff telling the front office that their scheme can produce regardless of talent. Or if its the front office trying to scrape the bottom of the barrel and hoping it pays off. Willingly parting with talent and then not at least getting replacement level is one of the many reasons the FO in its current construction needs to be blown up.
  2. Agreed. Edge rushers have been way too inconsistent, linebackers are either slow or lack awareness, and the secondary is a mess. Interior line has provided at least some reason for optimism although getting gashed consistently with the run the last few weeks has dimmed that bright spot recently.

    The Bruce Allen/GM Thread

    I'm really hoping that this will be it for Bruce. I know he will try to use the injuries as an excuse, but he should have been fired years ago. If the "GM" does go, cleaning house seems to be the most logical next step.

    Season Ticket Renewals

    Going to my last game as a season ticket holder this Sunday. Had to be bribed with field passes to go. Never had field passes before, so I thought why not? Just not worth the investment in my opinion. I can either enjoy or embrace the mediocrity of the games at home, or get tickets in my old section or better for way cheaper on the secondary market.

    The Race to Black Monday 2020:

    In the case of Green Bay, I absolutely think Ted Thompson gets the blame as well as Dom Capers running the defense. I personally think that Rodgers makes that team go. McCarthy's offense is pretty much let Aaron handle it. His scheme doesn't get people open, usually Rodgers going off script or putting the ball in a pin hole sized window is what moves the ball for them. I don't think he will be fired, but he doesn't necessarily come off as a good coach to me.

    The Race to Black Monday 2020:

    Mike McCarthy shouldn't be safe. Its been proven time and again that Aaron Rodgers masks a ton of deficiencies with that team. I guess he has the built in excuse of Rodgers being hurt, but in my opinion the QB has made him successful, not the other way around. Not sure whether or not the majority is on McCarthy or also their front office, but without Rodgers they are a disaster.

    Redskins were 10-6 in both 1999 and 2005 regular seasons.

    If I remember correctly, the reason they settled on Zorn was because nobody else that was a quality coach wanted the job. I think Jim Fassel was floated out at the time, but thats it. Even last year, every big name defensive coordinator turned them down so they went in house with Manusky. I agree he will try to get some retread with name recognition, but I think he will fail.

    I don't doubt that is what Dan will try to do, but I don't think any big name coach that is worth anything will come to this disaster. Regardless of how much money ol' Danny boy throws at him, it wouldn't be worth it.

    If Gruden gets the axe, you could possibly add Washington to that list. I do think that Schwartz will definitely get a look this off season.

    I think Bowles is safe, the Jets play their tails off for him. People in the preseason were picking them to win 1-2 games all year. I also think the thursday win saved Garrett's job. He is Jerry's puppet, Giants next week gets them to 7-6 and Zeke returning gives them life. The top 4 on your list are definitely gone, no idea why Denver thought Vance Joseph was a good hire, I believe his Dolphins D was ranked in the 25-30 last year when he got the job.

    Agreed. Sadly, he will be here for years to come.

    Skillet is a great band, they play a fantastic live show...they are labeled as a Christian Rock band, but they rock....saw them at the Avalanche Tour with Art of Dying, Halestorm, Theory of a Deadman, and Stone Sour, and they rocked the house. That is all.
  14. Personally, I like the 70-71 helmet the best, followed by the present day helmet. Just my :2cents: :logo:
  15. So, they are now having a Batista vs. Kane for the #1 Contender. That means that Edge was going to beat Kane originally right?
