    Whoever has a top draft pick is almost guaranteed to suck for obvious reasons.

    edit:fwiw I think the Giants are more equipped than the other teams with the highest draft picks. Also worth noting that part of the Giants problem is coaching, not talent, surely the coach will be fired.

    Hilarious line of the day: "Isn't it odd how Bill Belichik is deeply involved in every facet of the Patriots operations down to the tiniest detail, except when they get caught cheating which is always something he knew nothing about?"

    Tons of starters (particularly on defense) in active for the Panthers game? Not even including Bobby Wagner going down in that game? No problem. We beat them comfortably @Carolina anyway.

    I hope we rest a bunch of starters for the Cards as well, to give them more time to heal to 100%. They’re a bad team also, and we need everyone healthy for the 49ers

    He's basically a marginally better Cordarrelle Patterson, he runs really fast and does nothing else well

    Rams and 49ers both lose. Seahawks win and #1 in NFC West. I am pretty happy.

    If the Steelers manage to win this game, I will view them as legit contenders.

    Did anyone else catch this fun fact going by?

    The Steelers have not fired a head coach in the last fifty years.

    While I haven’t kept up with football before Tomlin, did any of them deserve to be fired ?

    It's more that there's only been 3 in that time; Chuck Noll for 23. Bill Cowher for 15, and now Tomlin for 13.

    Congrats :)
    Not embarrassing... just dissapointing :(... but compared to where they were this time last year... I'll take it. :yup:
    They have done a remarkable job picking coaches... lucky bastards...

    Chuck Noll opened with three straight losing seasons, one of which was a single win, but when the team stuck with him they won four super bowls through the seventies. The eighties had plenty of bad seasons where a lesser owner would have told him that he was maybe too old, out of touch, whatever, but they let him stay until he opted to retire in 1991.

    Cowher started with six straight seasons in the playoffs and a completely cemented "can't win the big one" tag that would have gotten him fired by some teams, especially when they laid an egg in his seventh season and went oh for five down the stretch after a 7-4 start, then followed with another losing season the next year. Eight years, no championship, and a 6-10 season is enough to get a coach fired almost anywhere. Two more playoff early exits, then ANOTHER 6-10 season was enough to get a coach fired just about everywhere.

    So, yeah, I think the Steelers are marching to a different drummer, and apparently it works.

    If I know anything about football, generally speaking, having consistent stability at the three most important positions of a team (quarterback, manager, coach) is far more likely to produce a culture of winning. Obviously, not a guarantee, but more likely.

    That has been the Steelers' guiding principle. They will ride the coach they have chosen through thick and thin. Same with quarterbacks.

    I think he's in that aggregate pool of average-to-below WRs. The reason they're average/rotate teams might differ but they're all broadly unimpressive compared to other receivers, but still wind up on some roster somewhere. Maybe he's worse than that, would want to check though.
