This is a fantastic story about Jimmy Haslam and the Browns dysfunction since he bought the squad. Highly recommend it. I can't help but feel if an article like this was written about the Redskins, there would be some similarities between the two.

Looks like Robey-Coleman is getting fined for his hit against the Saints.

Re: NFL conference championship weekend

I was rooting for the Rams but anybody who says that wasn't a penalty (h2h or pass interference) is lying to themselves. NFL is fucking up ignoring it too, they should've just released a statement after the game and apologized for it.

Good read here. Anybody who thinks Antonio Brown's playmaking ability would override any character concerns here should read this article. We have exactly the type of environment that would make Brown do the same shit here.

I think wherever he goes he'll play the good solider routine for a year or two before something hits the fan. But yeah, country club Jay wouldn't be a good environment at all. Watch him end up in New England where he'd tear it up.

Re: NFL conference championship weekend

So you're telling me that in a game where there there were 3 TDs by one team and 2 TDs by the other team just in the fourth quarter there's no advantage to winning the coin flip?

In the days when the scores were lower I could imagine the impact of the coin flip being lower.

But these days, where a lot of the playoff teams score 30 points routinely, I would think the coin flip would have a huge impact. Someone should look at the impact when the (tied) score at the end of regulation was something like 28 or above. (Or even better, a breakdown based on the (tied) score at the end of regulation.)

Re: NFL conference championship weekend

Also, parity via the salary cap is pure fraud. It just makes it so the teams that have been successful will continue to be so since the expectation that that success is continued is worth a lot to the players looking for a new team. Thus, the teams at the top stay at the top and the ones at the bottom stay at the bottom. (Haven't the Patriots been able to get players at bottom dollar since they hoped to win a championship if they played for them?) Have you seen much rotation in the top or bottom teams since the salary cap went into effect? Have you seen the rotation in what NCAA schools are at the top since they're all allowed the same number of football scholarships?

If you want a level playing field then you have to allow less-successful teams to have a larger salary cap so they can offset the undesirablilty to play there with extra money to even out the attractiveness of their offers with better teams.

This is the silliest post in a good while.

Congrats.

McVay leaving for LA was due to “bad timing”, nothing else. Great

I understand what Keim is saying and don't fault the logic but the good organizations plan for the future.

If they knew (everyone else seemed to) Jay was an average or slightly above average coach, they should have pulled the trigger.

How many times have you heard the word prodigy associated with an up and coming coach in the last decade?

How would you justify firing a coach that went 8-7-1 that year? If you fire a coach McVay liked and admired what makes you think he would have taken the job?

Since when has Snyder ever justified firing anyone?

In this case, he would have been firing a perpetually mediocre coach for the prospect of someone truly special.

And they should do something as simple as ask McVay if he would have taken the job. Offer to make Jay his OC if he wanted it. It would be hard to feel sorry for an OC making 5m a year.

This isn't a clear cut screw up because of the factors that Keim laid out in the article but it is indicative of being short sighted and willing to settle for the sure mediocre thing.

Another way to look at it would be how hot of a HC candidate would Jay have been if he was fired then, or now for instance?
