    AAF league

    True, but something tells me Alabama isn't going to let Trent Richardson back into a uniform, so that's like comparing apples to oranges.

    Former Colts in AAF

    Sounds like a pretty good gig to me. I picked the wrong career path!

    AAF league

    I'd like to see more games for a bigger sample data. Richardson's expertise is brute raw strength, which is also why he did so well in college -- his opposition was undersized. Now we're placing Trent in a development league and suddenly we're surprised he's doing well? I'm not biting yet. You put me into a game with a bunch of old ladies and I can make myself look strong, too.

    AAF league

    Agreed. The fact the NFL has its blessings and routinely is posting news about it on their own NFL website is huge. Big names in the business are helming it, including Hines Ward and Bill Polian. I like Kurt Warner also reporting on it. It's marketed as a developmental league; NOT a direct competitor, which I think is huge because the AAF knows it can't compete with the NFL anyways. Also, it's worth noting since the collapse of the original XFL, fantasy football has expanded a lot more, so that might give people a motivation to root for teams/players when money's involved.

    NFL vs Colin K settled

    I knew I'd do that, lol. Edited.

    NFL vs Colin K settled

    I find it an interesting coincidence they settled once the AAF unfolded to good ratings. I imagine Kaepernick knew he was going to get hounded with questions like, "If you feel teams are refusing to sign you, then why not play in the AAF?" Nevermind the fact he turned down the Broncos, but we're not supposed to know that.

    Antonio Brown Madden Curse?

    It my opinion it did get to Brady. One day, during a routine practice session before the Superbowl, his hand came down hard on Rex Burkhead's helmet, giving his throwing hand the nastiest cut I've seen. Warning, slightly gross: Brady said, "This is it. This is the way the season ends." Considering how close the Eagles game was, I have no doubt that might have affected the game's outcome if it meant him missing even just one pass completion he would have made.
  8. Oh okay, so from the way it sounds, Andrew Luck actually said: "Heh heh, shut up, heh, don't talk ahaha in my huddle. Hyuk hyuk."

    The only issue I have with the AAF is the defenses are only allowed to blitz a maximum of five guys. I understand what Barry Sears said above, but does this mean this is a temporary rule until teams can get acclimated to their coaching staff and the speed of the game? If it's for safety reasons, then I find it ironic they allow these hits on the QB: So I don't know if the AAF is trying to promote more safety or less, lol.

    My favorite part so far is the referee in the skybox. Check this out; this will blow people's minds: THIS is the level of transparency the NFL needs. They need to up the mic quality a bit, but it's a start.

    Dumbest Post SB Issue Raised By The Media Today

    It's the offseason though, so they need things to talk about. Case in point: My boi, Trent Richardson, will be balling (badly) in the new AAF league soon, so stay tuned for tons of weird articles.

    Why do Colts screen plays not work so well?

    Maybe our coaches give Luck a few plays -- sometimes a screen -- and Luck never chooses the screen play? Reich says into the headset, "Luck, why u no like our screen plays?" Luck just smiles. Then Reich thinks, "Aww, how can I say no to that face!?"

    Falcons won't resign kicker Matt Bryant

    Now imagine when the Patriots trade or release Tom Brady (after that SB performance, it might be sooner rather than later). Giselle will be complaining more about how her husband can't throw and catch at the same time.

    What can we learn from the pats??

    Well yea, he did it with Matt Cassel, so the proof is definitely there. I'm not saying Brady is bad; just mediocre. Belichick could turn Jay Cutler into a legend and we'd all be singing how handsome Cutler is.

    And the creepiest part is Kraft considers Brady his son. Well, maybe Brady destroyed his cellphone because he had nude photos of Kraft on it.

    Question About Mack

    That's a trick question. I'm looking at your question right now.

    Darius Leonard vs Dwight Freeney

    There were also a lot more pocket passers during Freeney's days. I'm not convinced he'd have as much success today, especially because he had Robert Mathis lined up on the other side. What Darius Leonard is doing, however, is just ridiculous. I know it's a team sport, but at times, Darius looks like a one-man-wrecking crew. Even in that Kansas City game, he gave us a chance to get back into it with that force fumble; good players making big plays at critical moments.

    Warren Sharp on how McVay was outcoached

    Sure would have fooled me with how often the Rams were going 3-and-out. It's a miracle both defenses played as well as they did.

    SB ratings hit a 10 year low

    The announcers were noticing that when the Rams were on offense, the stadium was loud. With the Patriots, it was a lot more quiet. Also, at one point, even thru my TV, I could hear chants of "Brady Brady Brady" in the 4th Q, and the announcers picked it up as well. Yes, a very pro-Patriots crowd, or perhaps should I say an anti-Rams crowd. Had the Saints been playing, I think they would have had a lot more support. Drew Brees is such a great guy, and I know the city of New Orleans would love to bring the Lombardi back one last time before Brees hangs it up.

    Warren Sharp on how McVay was outcoached

    The problem is the coaches are out-thinking themselves. The Falcons kept throwing the ball late when they should have been running to chew clock, the Seahawks didn't run it with Lynche at the 1-yd line, the Colts did that bone-headed special teams play that they forgot to have everyone practice for, the list goes on. At some point, common-sense has to prevail. The fans have that going for them; the coaches do not. For example, in the Russell INT, the theory is the coaches didn't want Lynche to have the ball because management didn't like him. In that case, the coaches gave up on X's and O's. I don't know of too many Seahawks fans who would say, "Don't give the game-winning ball to Lynche because he's a jerk."

    Warren Sharp on how McVay was outcoached

    I know it was the Rams offense that lost this, but I just find it comical Tom Brady was looking to Edelman as his first read and the Rams were oblivious to it. On one play, Romo even mentioned they put a LB on Edelman! Edelman should have been priority #1, NOT Gronk. Gronk is not the same player he once was due to injuries. Not to take away from Gronk's awesome catch late in the game, but the Rams should have forced Gronk to prove he can be a consistent threat by challenging him to make catches in simple 1-on-1 man coverage. Gronk is slow and needs extra time to get downfield, which would have given the Rams d-line more time to get after Brady. Cover the shifty guys, like Edelman and Hogan first, then worry about Gronk later. If Gronk puts up numbers, only then do you start double teaming him.

    Marvin Harrison's Hall of Fame speech

    And after that, he says, "By the way, has anyone seen a gun laying around here? I think it's an FN 5.7-caliber semi-automatic. It's not mine, but if you see it, let me know."

    What can we learn from the pats??

    Two basic things: 1.) Conditioning. The Patriots excel at playing 60 minutes of football, and a lot of that is attributed to their "boot camp" training regime. Purportedly, this training is so intense that it scares signed veterans into retirement, such as Reggie Wayne (he denies it) and Joseph Addai. It's regarded as a team that is "no fun." 2.) Coaching. Belichick is both the GM and HC, providing him increased flexibility in team management. With good coaching, you can overcome the parity the NFL attempts to drive into teams by being efficient at drafting, creating sound gameplans, and motivating players to take paycuts with a winning culture.

    John Simon [Merge]

    Now watch the Browns trade the Pats a million picks for the 32nd overall.
  25. Oh yea, I forgot about that. He was even on the cover of Madden 09, but it was such a last second thing that EA had an alternate cover that players could print online to swap for one or the other.
