  1. We saw the Koetter regime work hard to rein in Winston's worst impulses, which I thought was the right approach given his penchant for fairly regular knuckleheaded play. And now we'll apparently see the flip side, No-Risk-It-No-Biscuit approach, from an alleged quarterback whisperer. You'd have to believe that Winston has a lot in common with Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Andrew Luck and Carson Palmer to think this is gonna work. Anybody willing to go there?

    McCoy was privately (and roundly) criticized by the coaching staff for routinely taking himself out of games for hangnails and the like. And then heroically re-inserting himself in the game before the trainers could diagnose the cuticle issue. I don't have any direct knowledge of locker room impact, but the players aren't blind. There had to be some trickle-down. And I expect all of that played into the decision to release him.

    McCoy Released

    Why did Chris Baker suddenly pop into my head?

    Winston article by Bassinger

    'High variance'. If you had to describe Winston in two words, those would be the words of choice.

    Our QB is Awesome

    Wearing a helmet? Gutless punk.

    XFL Reboot

    I fully endorse this conspiracy theory. The AAF had every second-tier player available locked down with three-year contracts. As long as the AAF existed, McMahon had no talent pool to draw on for the XFL.

    Time to See Reality

    You just described 90% of Steelers Nation. And yet I'm somehow envious.
  9. Hell, GSS, were you the guy at the next carrel with the grocery bag covering his lap? I shoulda said something. I'm kind of teamless at the moment. The demise of the AAF and the Hotshots was a kick in the nuts for a few of us out here. I had the chance to hang out at a few practices, meet some players, got to know some coaches. A few have landed on their feet after getting the exposure the league promised, so I'm happy for them, but that's only a small part of what was promised. There's a lot of bitterness out there. But anyone who's been around the pro game for a while knows the rug can get jerked out at any minute and they move on. I sincerely hope the Bucs give us all something to feel good about this year. I'm a natural pessimist and not especially impressed with Bruce Arians - I think his best days are well behind him. Still, there's nothing I'd like better that a reason to keep wearing my TB gear.
  10. Congratulations T! I'm sure you already know this but getting banned from a message board is high honor indeed. I've personally done it three times at JBF and four times on Saints Report. Those stupid shits think an IP ban can't be defeated. It occasionally means hanging out among the degenerate porn addicts at the public library, but hell, those are my people. I feel right at home.
  11. Definitely a mixed reaction, both among fans and the press. I honestly don't follow the Cards closely, no message board activity, possibly because they have a profanity filter, so, no fun like this board. Steve Keim's recent record (Aguayo excepted) has been at least as bad as Licht's, so this is definitely a make or break move for him. Most interesting to me - I watched Murray's expression through the entire fifteen minutes AZ was on the clock. He looked supremely pissed that they were taking their time and obviously trying to swing deals which might have seen them trade down. My guess is that he has a mountain-sized ego and has yet to learn that he's a commodity, which may or may not work to his advantage out here.
  12. This has me considering a skin graft and one of the hairstyles on my body.

    Nice story about Bucs FA pickup

    I have never seen a dog retreat because of one of my farts. On the other hand...

    The AAF

    I think Nick did well enough to buy himself another NFL shot. I believe he went 12 for 14, 4 of 5 from beyond 50 yards. Who knows, maybe he'll be a Buc again, what with his Arizona ties and Arians being a world-class old-boy-network-incest kind of guy. Regarding the war chest, Polian and Ebersol verbally assured at least one AAF head coach that they were financially solid for at least two years. Dundon didn't come off well, but I don't think he was the real villain here.

    The AAF

    As one AAF coach told me going in, 'This feels too good to be true'. Six-figure salary for a four month commitment. Guess he was right.
