I picked Houston to go to the SB week 17.. I just love their defense and they do 2 things as good as anyone, Run the football and stop the run. Also AJ80 is a nightmare for that AVG. CB play of Baltimore.. And quite frankly I think flacco just isnt any good

Detroit Lions facing big contract decisions in offseason - ESPN

Ouch. Contract year for Megatron. I seriously don't know if you can invest a $100 million dollar contract in a WR when you have a franchise QB who'll be getting top dollar soon, and a stud DL who's already getting top dollar.


I blame the Cardinals for this crap. ****ing idiot owners out there.

That was all over talk radio down here a few weeks ago, I called in to ask them if Jerry would have done that if Bill Parcells or Cower would have been the coach, they hung up on me and said that he would have because he is always doing meddling stuff like that. I said BS!!! He wouldnt have walked up behind a coach with nads and did that. Wade yes Parcells no.

Re: Around The NFL - Divisional Round

I cant believe that Houston has gotten this far with the QB staff that they have.
They have been playing on borrowed time.
I think Baltimore's defense will put the hurt on them.

Re: Around The NFL - Divisional Round

I like Houston because we experienced the same QB-situation at my own team this year, so I kinda feel for them. And I don´t like the Ravens that much. Still, even though I´d prefer them to win, I don´t think they´ll be able to.

You do know that Jerry Jones was the captain of the Arkansas football team that won the National Championship back in the 60s, right? Oh, and Jimmy Johnson was his teammate - - and I think they were fraternity brothers also - - at Arkansas.

He did indeed run an oil service business; that is where he made the money it took to buy the Cowboys. But Jones did play the game at a fairly high level.

Having said all that, I doubt that his "advice" was of any value to Jason Garrett who was probably juggling ten balls in the air at the same time. But do not make the mistake of assuming that Jerry Jones knows nothing about football the way many NFL owners know nothing about football.

Over blown. This will have as much impact as doing a really solid and thorough job of film work. Everything that McDaniels can offer is visible on film. Unless the Broncos have kept the same hand signal audibles that they had when McDaniels was their coach, which I know they have not, then there will be next to no impact. Just makes for more press fodder.

I am always highly amused at the general opinion of many fan bases of their idiot, know nothing, etc....owners. I'm thinking...you do know this dude is a self-made Billionaire? He may actually know a thing or two....

It will just make them the Colts when they do pay both Stafford and Johnson.

It's also not like they need to clear tons of cap room to pay Stafford, the guy is already the highest paid player on his team.

Just means that all the depth they will have will come via the draft and be with three years or fewer of NFL service.

Believe me, I will be the first to acknowledge that the folks who own NFL teams are intelligent people who know an awful lot about the business world - - plenty more than a thing or two.

I do draw a distinction between "being smart and knowledgeable" and "knowing football" in the sense that the very rich owner can actually sit down and discuss "football" with his head coach or his assistants. The majority of NFL owners cannot do that without a lot of tolerance on the part of the coaches involved.

The only two owners in the NFL that I can think of who played football at the elite college level or at the pro level are Jerry Jones and Jerry Richardson.

Ok, so he played football some 40 years ago. What type of scouting or football operations did he run after those 40 years while he was running a oil surveying company? What type of coaching experience does he have to make personnel decisions or understand which players are going to fit which schemes? What type of film/scouting experience makes him qualified to say who's better than another?

Him playing college football on a national championship team back in the 60's doesn't mean jack squat, and doesn't do anything to back up your argument he does in fact know football.

Just because a person was successful in one area of their life, doesn't mean they are going to be successful in another area. Dan Snyder was awesome at the phone slamming business, but he sucks as a NFL owner. (or has in the past decade)

The only years Jerry has been successful, are the years that Jimmy Johnson and Bill Parcells (and their talent) were there. That is no coincidence.

See above. Success in one area doesn't mean success in another.

You need to add Mike Brown to that list. He is the son of the great Paul Brown after all, and no doubt has had his share of football knowledge passed on to him.
