Didn't phase Flacco's contract talks. That Brady contract is nothing more than fluff. Has him playing till 40. You really expect that? They'll more at Brady's latest contract along with Mannings. I still say if they pay Flacco 18 mil/yr, they are going to be ****ed. He's not worth it, and they'd put in a out clause if they were smart.

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

Brady is smart. He wants to get his money ($9 mil a year ain't shabby) but doesn't want to wreck his team's salary cap. He obviously likes winning as much as he likes money.

I remember a lot of us wanting him on the Skins, including myself.


They also released Mike Patterson, a solid DT for them when healthy. Wonder if that brain surgery he had finished off his career?

If I remember right, Jenkins was actually supposed to sign with Redskins. His agent and Redskins FO had a contract agreement, but then at last min Jenkins and his agent spurred and demanded for more money so Redskins FO decided not to sign him.

Pretty damn unselfish thing to do. On the open market, even in his late 30's, Brady would command a lot more than 9 mil a year. I know he's made a lot of money, and has a very wealthy wife, but I don't ever remember any professional athlete doing this. I know I probably wouldn't do it. I think he likes winning more than the money.

I think I'm the only Rex Ryan fan here. I actually think he's a damn good coach

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

Rex Ryan is ok. I personally think he lacks some leadership skills but he did take the Jets to two straight AFC championship games. However if they miss the playoffs again, its on him and he deserves to be fired. Even if they fired him this past year I would not have had a problem with it but he deserves it if he cannot reach the playoffs next year.

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

RR is not an innovator either offensively or defensively. When it comes to X's and O's, please tell me where his creativity lies, 'cause I don't see it.

I grant you that, for a short time, he can get the maximum effort and talent from his players. As such, he will always have some initial success whether as a coach or DC b/c he knows how to motivate players in the short term. He will never be, IMHO, a coach who achieves long term success in any one place because, ultimately, his style is to let the inmates run the asylum while he poses as the head inmate. Ultimately, this degenerates into the clown car "crisis of leadership" confessions we have seen in Jets' land these last two years ("I didn't guage the lockerroom well", "I have ignored the offense"). In my book, he is all style and little substance. And, quite frankly, I don't particularly like his style - but that's just a personal opinion.

At this point, given the public persona he has cultivated, I would have a hard time viewing him as anything other than a clown. If my team needs a shot in the arm, I might give him a couple years as DC - but I just think he, like his brother, is more trouble than he's worth.

Good way to put it. Style over substance and great at motivating players in the short term instead of having the ability to sustain long term success.
