    It wasn't great, but giving up 24 or so ppg is a big big difference from giving up almost 30.

    At the end of the day, it just goes to show that coaching "genius" only takes you so far. As good a coach as BB is, if he'd not been lucky enough to get a franchise QB late in the draft, and had to...

    I doubt you'll find another situation in NFL history where a coach has had a team collapse two straight years and survived for another season. Especially when in the 2nd case, several losses were...

    The way they enforce rules for DBs now, only a handful of them are really worth much of anything without a pass rush. The difference between mediocre and above average DBs isn't that great when the...

    Have to admit I'm shocked he got that much. I probably would have let him walk for significantly less than that. NA at a bargain price having the season he did was great. But he'd have to have one...

    It's not "just" bad choices for DC ... he also has made numerous game management errors. There were at least 3-4 games last year where he essentially bet on his defense rather than his offense via...

    Only if they think one of the teams right behind us will take him, because they know odds are we won't.

    I agree, although I wouldn't say "scrub." You can get a decent couple of RBs in middle rounds or on the open market. But we've also seen in the past that having a bunch of garbage RBs doesn't work....

    Yeah, if we'd not had that late season fade (a familiar pattern with his teams), we not only avoid an extra game, but if we did play the Pats it would have been at home and not in the snow, which...

    To be fair, the year before we lost somewhere between 2-4 games because of missed kicks. To some extent, stabilizing the kicking game via drafting Jano probably accounted for at least 2-3 extra wins...

    I kind of did worry about it, honestly. People totally overrated Gruden's first stint here. Yes, he brought some measure of modernized offense that had been lacking for too long, and he did a good...

    I'll take pass rush from anywhere. Ideally yes it'd be at DT, but I'll settle for a DE or LB who can get to the QB if that's what's on tap. It just sucks to see even lousy QBs look good against us....

    A 2nd rounder seems a steep ask for a team to move up only 7 spots from late to mid 1st. The dropoff in talent between 17 and 24 is not usually that big is it?

    The thing is when we see other teams find something that works against us (like an edge run, or a screen, or whatever), they go to it again and again and again. Gruden for some reason often doesn't...

    1) managing the overall operation, which is to say getting 50+ guys to buy in to the team concept. This is reflected usually in preparation, discipline,...

    I don't think we'll get a huge haul for Mariota, given he's only got a year left on his deal, but there's more than a few teams where he'd probably be quite successful since, 1) he's competent if...

    If there's no suitors willing to pony up, and the return would be small, they'd be less likely to move a guy like Wilson. No GM/Coach is going to put their neck on the line with a mediocre return...

    Is "be highly upset" a euphemism for "go nuclear," or, "be completely unsurprised?" Because either kind of works.

    It's not stupid at all. Wilson will turn 33 late this coming season. While we're getting used to the idea of guys playing at a high level in their late 30's and even into their 40's, I would never...

    Watson's only been twice. Once with a great D, once with a defense similar in ppg to the one time Derek took us to the playoffs with. The two times he's played with crap defenses like DC's, he's...
