    The Second Base Options (as it stands)

    Stacy isn't the PBP guy though. It's far more tolerable coming from the analyst role.

    HOF voting/discussion getting increasingly vitriolic/polarized

    Especially if Schilling doesn't. Schilling is an ass and I hate almost everything he says politically, but his politics didn't give him an unfair advantage on the field.

    2022 Celebrity Death Thread

    OK, probably not a celebrity unless you're a football fan, but Dan Reeves died this morning at the age of 77.

    Yeah, the Bills rode Allen to 7 straight TDs, but for the 8th drive, when they wanted to lose yards, they brought in a QB with experience at losing yards.

    I heard so much about it I started playing it, but I don't know how long I'll keep it up. You just take 3-4 guesses to get a word.

    I'll probably watch all 4 games, but Allen vs Mahomes is the can't miss game for me. Josh Allen is my favorite non-Bear player.

    Four teams just didn't even bother showing up for the playoffs.

    I've noticed substantial variance in the amount of time it takes the refs to get the ball spotted and ready for play during a last minute drive. Maybe it's time to switch to the college rule of having the clock stop on first downs during the last 2 minutes--take the human element out of it. There was also a big screwup after the fake punt when the Cowboys wanted to snap it quickly to trap the 49ers punt return team on the field but they spotted the ball in the wrong place and then had to fix it and at that point Dallas ran their offense back out on the field and ended up with a delay of game penalty. I've just seen way too many bad performances from refs this year. They need to be better. I'm honestly surprised more people aren't questioning the integrity of betting on games with all the stuff that's happened.

    https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/bills-become-the-first-team-in-nfl-history-to-pitch-a-perfect-offensive-game-in-playoff-win-over-patriots/ Trubisky took a knee for the last two plays of the game, because if you want to lose yards in a playoff game, you want someone who has experience at it.

    If you're a quarterback who wants to win college championships, go to Alabama. If you want to win NFL playoff games, go anywhere else.

    Hard to be sure. It did look like defensive players stopped at the whistle but maybe they couldn't have stopped the pass anyway. Regardless, once the whistle got blown, they should have killed the play. They essentially disobeyed the rule to cover up their mistake.

    Big fuckup by the refs in the Oakland-Cincy game. Inexcusable.

    Harbaugh just hired away Notre Dame's DL coach for the same position at Michigan so that makes me think he isn't leaving.

    So on NFL Network this morning the hosts (don't remember who) were talking about how the Packers OC would be a great HC hire. Anybody have thoughts on that?

    I would have worded it differently, but I don't have a problem with the bolded statement. Unless your team is owned by a real football person like Jerry Jones, at some point in the chain of command of the organization you will have a football person reporting to and being hired by a non-football person. I don't expect the team owner to spend dozens of hours watching game film and talking to scouts in order to form a solid evaluation of the quarterback. I do expect the owner to understand when the person directly below him or her has been getting the same unacceptable results after repeated GM/Coach hires and make a change in how those positions are filled, and I expect him or her to identify the right outside consultants to help make those changes.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say that the new GM/coach shouldn't be judged on wins/losses, but I would say that wins/losses in year 3 should count a lot more than wins/losses in year 1. Make sure the new regime doesn't feel the pressure to sacrifice the future to scratch out a 10-7 season in 2022.
