I really don't know how to feel about Coughlin possibly coming to Philly. m It must have been a much nastier scene at Giants HQ than the press has let on.

Or he is just old and doesn't want to move.

You can't just expect a man to pick a new deli at his age.  why so serious?

Also, I'm not entirely sure WHY Philly would want Coughlin. He's a good coach but I'm not sure he's the guy to unfuck the giant cluster that is their current roster. Maybe it's his ability to pick a decent O line.

ESPN is reporting that has taken himself out of the running for that job because he wants a position that gives him a chance to win in the next 2-3 years (the amount of time he thinks he has left as a coach).  awesome, for real

Speaking of the Eagles job, Chip Kelly hired as San Francisco's new coach. Here comes the return of Kaep. This should be glorious.

I predict the first actual live broadcast of a professional athlete's decapitation next season. Kelly does not know how to build an O-line in the NFL.

God, the 49ers will be fucking terrible this year. Strangely enough, I think he might be the only guy that could get something even remotely worthwhile out of Kap as a QB. Hell, he made Sam Bradford halfway decent on the downs where he wasn't getting chased to his eventual near-death.

They should have kept Jim. Coach of the year IMO. The fact that they won 5 games was a miracle with the personnel losses[I.E. all of them] and schedule they had[second hardest schedule of all teams] and actually beat their estimated wins for the season.

Goum isn't a Bengals fan. I think I'm the only guy unfortunate enough to have a little bit of fuck to give about them. (But at least it's not the Browns.  why so serious? )

I didn't say Goum was.

You did. Because otherwise your statement makes no sense. Not being a fan of the bengals i should not be able to see officiating problems against them as biased.

And maybe i just have some unfortunate experience with this but the Steelers seem to get these types of breaks all the time.

You do. Every fan of every team cries about how the officials are unfair squarely with their team and how all the other teams catch the breaks.

Big market teams catch breaks. Small market teams do not.

This isn't the NBA. The NFL doesn't give a fuck who makes the Super Bowl. They will sell boffo numbers to that thing if it's Carolina and Arizona.

Its not about the bowl tickets, its about television revenue and merchandise. People watch less football when their team is bad, and when that happens in big market areas the drop is considerably more than when it happens in small market areas.

My comment was about fans of all teams all bitching about officiating. It wasn't tied to you being a Bengals fan. Sorry if it came across that way.

I watched a commentator clip on NFL.com where the talking heads argued that the Chip Kelly system will be a disaster in the NFC West because defenses are much better int hat division. This rings true to me.

Well, last year I remember that the Kelly train was running full steam ahead, and then Seattle went into Philly and just demolished them.  They gained 139 yards in a game that was not nearly as close as the score made it appear.  The next two lowest scoring games they played were against Arizona and San Fran.  They managed 38 against St Louis, but that was probably just the Rams being the Rams.

The problem about the NFC west defenses is that they are not better than your offense because of schemes, they are better because of personnel.  You could make a whole Pro Bowl defensive squad out of just three of those teams.  So the fast paced offense were you don't allow the defense time to substitute and figure out the scheme don't matter at all, because they can just keep playing the same scheme with the same people. 

So offhand, I'd say they're fucked.  In the short-term, it might appear successful while they adjust to him, just like in Philly, but still fucked.

Philly probably lost because every defense in the NFC West can tackle in the open-field. Kelly's offense was predicated on fast plays that wear a defense down with lots of quick passes and runs after the catch. If you only throw the ball 5 yards but get tackled immediately by a defense that is flying, then you are fucked.

I figure most teams wouldn't make a point of announcing it so publicly. I guess nobody was quite desperate enough to trade for him, content to roll the dice on the McCown's, Weedens, and Mallets of the world.

The Browns released a statement Tuesday about quarterback Johnny Manziel that signaled their intent to move on from Manziel because of his “continual involvement in incidents that run counter” to the team’s expectations of their players.

Which is doubly funny, because from what I've seen of the Browns, Manziel looks like the only one of the field who plays like he gives a shit.

Exactly. Which is pretty striking and possibly an explanation. I mean when you look around a shitty team and you are the only one actually trying? Yeah, I'd want out too and bonus if I could make the team look a fool as well.

I am hopeful, as a true Clevelander is, that this new structure to the team works out and they are competitive again. But that is probably a fool's hope.

He's that bad. Also this shouldn't surprise anyone - a sports agent drops his client right about the time said client fucks up so badly, his future earning potential just went negative. I'm not even sure the Cowboys would sign him now - he's not good enough to be in the Greg Hardy club.
