I expect a bunch of checkdown throws to TEs/WRs/RBs or screens or more safer routes to the outside called for Kerry Collins. Let us see if there is any connection with Dallas Clark to go deeper down the middle for just 1 or 2 plays. It has been a while since we have seen anything deep down the middle in pre-season, hasn't it? Maybe they don't want to get anyone killed in the middle in pre-season, maybe that is the reason???

This doesn't make much sense, Link has allowed as many hits on the QB as the back-up oline.

Tongue in cheek.

Collins is utterly immobile, and one good smack could send him right back to Tennessee. Regardless of Links obvious deficiencies, 100 times rather the starters than Toudoze, Richard, Devan, etal playing all at once.

    • You're not seeing the actual results and you're in your bubble and reason everything else based on that.    As mentioned by the OP, San Francisco alone got 5 comp picks in 3 years and other 5 franchises got 2 comp picks each in 3 years, so organizations are hiring diverse candidates a lot more than what fans say that RR is not working.    That doesn't mean there won't be Caucasian employees much as you stated, and doesn't mean organizations are not hiring more diverse candidates, whether that's because of RR or not.    I think the situation is much better now, more opportunities are given to diverse candidates, more diverse candidates are working from top to bottom of the hierarchy and if it becomes much more fair to everyone to compete or get hired or promoted, RR may not be needed anymore down the road. 
    • that’s what I have been saying. Take a shot at a qb later that drops like one or two do every year.
    • The definition of an incentive is to encourage a certain performance.   In this NFL policy, the NFL specifically ties performance to hiring minorities....that is how they measure performance.    When you measure discrimination by counting faces instead of determining the hearts, that is a problem.   This policy came after the RR.  The first rule wasn't enough.  They added a second rule to expand it to executive hires.   The NFL wants more minorities as HCs and GMs than what there is now.    I don't understand how you question that.    When does it end?  Beats me.  Maybe when the NFL has one token white guy as a GM, HC, and each team has a white player, the face-counters will be satisfied?  Maybe sometime before that?  I don't know. It seems that it will lie in the subjectivity of the judging party.   Interviews do not provide an opportunity when a racist is simply forced to interview a candidate.  The candidate is already shut out before they even interview, that's what racism does.   A lot of people are now making the allegation that the simply "following the RR" is a sham.  They would not be making that if fewer minorities were being rejected.  That's basically what some are saying happened in CAR with hiring Frank over Wilks.  Wilks got the "opportunity" via interviewing and actually doing a good job for 9 weeks.      Big deal.      The results are still causing a problem for some.   
    • Seeing it all over,google and you will find a dozen right away.....   https://www.saturdaydownsouth.com/kentucky-football/will-levis-projected-as-no-1-overall-pick-in-another-mock-draft-from-cbs-sports/   https://www.theringer.com/2022/12/22/23519559/will-levis-is-going-to-be-the-no-1-pick-plus-other-potential-first-round-qbs-ringer-nfl-draft https://www.stampedeblue.com/2023/1/27/23573755/pff-2023-nfl-mock-draft-projects-colts-to-trade-up-for-kentucky-qb-will-levis-at-1-overa   Levis definitely has a higher ceiling then Young or Stroud,no one is arguing against that from what I have seen, for every Losman then is a Josh Allen whose stats werent great and supporting cast wasnt either. The NFL is much more a passing game then when Losman played a lot has happened in 20 years.
    • What exactly are the results they were expecting and what they have admitted that they have not got?    It becomes very subjective as to who responds.    But, the minimum expectations were that the rule would give more opportunities to diverse and minority candidates and that has been working.    No one expected diverse candidates to become majority because of the rule. I'm not sure what exactly you think isn't working.    You can't force the franchises to hire diverse candidates and that could risk not always getting the best candidates, so how would the league penalize?    Rooney Rule is in place to give more opportunities to diverse candidates, and the rule is working as expected.    Expecting anything else wouldn't mean that the rule has not worked.
