    OMG, Marvin Lewis who had to be distant kin folk to the Brown family is now a favorite to land the head coaching job in Dallas. Garrett had an image of combination of the nephew of Jones and Howdy Doody with Jones pulling the strings in the background. Lewis will be the Black version of that......https://www.rotoworld.com/football/nfl/player/1580/marvin-lewis

    I actually echo Shadowlight’s sentiments on Garrett. He actually was not some terrible coach - his win loss record is 85-67. There are some rumors that the cowboys are stringing him along until the Giants fill their coaching position.

    The Cowboys went with Mike McCarthy. It sounds like the logic from Jerrah is that McCarthy will develop Prescott as he did in developing Rodgers. I personally think this is not going to be an ideal match and in the next few years the Cowboys will fire him - Prescott is what he is - the o-line is a year older, Elliot has another year of mileage on him. Witten may or may not be back but McCarthy's offense has never had a dominant TE - Witten served as a security blanket for Prescott as he did before retiring and his comeback season at age 37 has been great - he is a first ballot HOF. Statistically he was the same player he was in 2017 - I would like to see him retire now instead of serving a reduced role in 2020.

    Apparently Marvin wanted to bring in Hue Jackson LOL. Even that was too much for Jerry Jones so he went with McCarthy.

    McCarthy and Dak Upside are a match made in mediocrity. They can look forward to lots of 6-10 seasons and watching the Giants and Eagles make the playoffs with Daniel Jones and Carson Wentz.

    (until McCarthy gets fired, of course, which is going to be sooner than he thinks)

    The media take is McCarthy is stepping into a wildly talented team. But compare the talent of his mostly underachieving Packer teams to the present day Cowboys. OK I will give you an even Steven between Vander Esch and Clay Mathhews providing Esch is healthy enough to play. But Prescott vs Rodgers? Please. Not even in the same paragraph. And the Cowboys don't have anyone near Jordy either. WR Cooper is yet another stat stuffing overrated black WR. A good but not a great player like Jordy.When it really counted down the stretch Cooper all but disappeared.

    The local media is high on this Matt Rhule from Baylor and most but not all of the NYC media is infatuated with him. Why? His Baylor team blew a gigantic lead against Oklahoma this season and then got beat by them again in the Big 12 title game. TCU had them beat but handed the game to Baylor and then Baylor got dominated by Georgia in their bowl game. They hang on the idea he turned around Temple. Temple who cares? Then they say he made Baylor good again but his timing had something to do with it as the withering NCAA restrictions were done by then. Hell Pat Fitzgerald turned around the worse off Northwestern program so why isn't he being considered?

    I get this strange feeling Rhule talks a good caste game and we all know owners and management get a woody with those types. Perhaps I should be fair and wait out their first draft with him etc. if they hire him but my instincts tell me if they go with Rhule the Giants will continue to suck, Daniel Jones nonwithstanding.

    You don’t have to go past Rodgers to point out the difference between the Packers and Cowboys.

    My local sports station guys were reveling in the weekend that saw all the old white guy QB’s lose, Brees and Brady, they even mentioned McCown, who is over 40 too. Of course they lost to young White QB’s...anyway here’s hoping Rodgers gets some revenge on that team from the northwest.

    Matt Rhule to Carolina. What does that mean for CMac and their young White quarterbacks?

    Also, where does that leave the Giants? I’m hearing NE special teams and receivers coach Joe Judge? Could be good for guys like David Sills.

    Edit: It’s official that Judge has been hired. I’d like to see them bring Jason Garrett in as the OC.

    Thanks for the coaching updates. I believe both the Giants and panthers are keeping their current GMs in place so it’s doubtful the caste meter points in a positive direction. It is interesting that the Giants did opt for an unknown special teams coach. As far as Rhule - his recruiting speaks for itself - very rigidigly caste. I am hoping his standout DL LYnch from Baylor decides to declare as their have been whispers of him being a JJ Watt type sleeper.

    Just in case anyone cared all the talking heads/usual suspects are outraged once again by the lack of minority (black head coaches) being hired. No word on them questioning the lack of white players and the endless discrimination they face though.

    Brady is not done yet!

    Coming back next year. Let's hope The Pats can get him some help!

    If any QB has a say in personnel decisions it would be Brady. If I am Brady get some receivers like Edelman, Gronk, Logan, and Amendola. I suspect he will have a say based on the affeletic receivers' performance in 2019.

    The NFL has not acted on Jadeveon Clowney's helmet to helmet hit on Carson Wentz. Apparently they're not gong to do anything about it.

    If they do nothing it will show they have an official policy of allowing black players to intentionally injure white players.

    Unbelievable. At this point, it would be great to see Clowney get a dose of his own medicine this Sunday.

    Peters may be the most over-rated tackle ever, regularly getting beat and often moving before the snap.

    Eliot Shorr-Parks of 94 WIP Philadelphia expects the Eagles to move on from impending free agent Jason Peters this offseason.
    Despite the Eagles' emotional attachment to their long-time left tackle, Shorr-Parks believes there is "almost no chance" Philadelphia would waste another year of Andre Dillard's rookie contract by sitting him in favor of Peters. With Dillard ready to take over as Carson Wentz's blind-side protector, the nine-time Pro Bowler will likely be playing elsewhere in 2020. Set to turn 38 later this month, Peters has been a fixture on the Eagles' offensive line since his arrival in 2009.

    Looks like Edelman got arrested last night in Beverly Hills for stomping on the hood of a car. WTF! No doubt he was intoxicated. He was Amendola and a Paul Pierce at some bar. You would think being 35 years old, he would be past the stupid years.

    A minor incident in my book. Speaking of Edelman news just came out he played nearly the entire season with a torn rib cartilage which would have sidelined most all players. What did Edelman do this season? How about 100 catches with a career high 1117 yards at the age of 33. Saying he is tough doesn't do justice. The guy is a medieval warrior of the highest echelon. OLD SCHOOL STUD.

    By the way it looks like the idiot Browns have hired constipated Vikings OC ( yes the man that tried to destroy Adam Thielen) Kevin Stefanski. The only good news to glean from this is he won't be in charge of the Vikings offense anymore.

    Even Weenieworld doesn't like Booger, that's when you know his days are numbered.

    Michael McCarthy of FrontOfficeSports.com reports ESPN plans to offer CBS announcer and former Cowboys QB Tony Romo a deal that would make him the highest-paid sportscaster in history.
    Per McCarthy, ESPN is prepared to offer Romo a seven-year deal with a salary in the range of $10-14 million annually, which would blow away the current high-water mark for NFL analysts currently held by Fox's Troy Aikman ($7.5 million). It would be an eye-popping sum, though Romo would be a clear upgrade on current Monday night color analyst Booger McFarland, who has struggled to say the least since joining the broadcast in 2018. Romo is due $4 million in the final year of his three-year contract with CBS, which is set to expire after this season.

    A rare smart move by ESPN if it works out. Tony Romo is a 100% better commentator than Booger. He breaks down the game like only a former player or coach could. He also isn't nearly as caste
    and seems alot more fair than most sports broadcasters. That may change as they will be paying him alot of money. Hope not but even if he moved towards the middle we could finally watch a few
    more games with out the mute button always on.

    Of course Tony Romo as color commentator is always better when they decide to show pictures of his wife during the game....

    Jump off a bridge news. Carolina LB stud of the ages Luke Kuechly has announced his retirement.

    This goes back to what I brought up in a post that head injuries are becoming a serious issue for NFL players and will most certainly factor in on a lot more early retirements than we have ever seen before.

    Been a tough couple of days folks and this news is nothing but deeply depressing. One of my all time favorite players.

    Carolina by the way just hired the LSU OC hot off his championship run.

    Sad news indeed. Hopefully this early retirement doesn't keep him out of the HOF.

    I respect Luke's decision to look after his health and the best interests of his family.

    Keuchly retiring is a little surprising but probably the best move - he has had concussion issues and the Panthers are going to be in a rebuild mode. He was the best LB of the past decade and a pleasure to watch. I have a feeling Olsen is going to be next.

    Anyone with more than two concussions should really consider ever suiting up and putting on a helmet for protection. Keuchly made the best move.
