  1. treat88


    Im going with Burgess as option #1, but Cashman can play inside next to him pretty easily.
  2. For all we know, Myles could have used a racial slur against Rudolph causing him to go off and start tearing at Garretts helmet. 100% equally likely and possibly even more so given Garretts post game MAGA cracker comments. The fact one guy tried to decapitate the other guy does not in any way implicate that the decapitee was rascist, and the decapitator has lots of reasons to make stories up to defend his indefensible actions.
  3. I like Bilal Nichols in CHI in deeper leagues. Leonard Williams may get more 4-3 snaps which could push his numbers up. Carl Lawson is still a favorite of mine and should draw single coverage opposite Dunlap
  4. The talk of the automated strike zone definitely continues and actually increases every season it becomes more feasible. Color me in the camp of doing what it takes to get the calls right. I dont enjoy the human element of reffing the game when it comes to black and white calls. Certain rulings lend themselves to subjectivity and human refs will always be necessary. Certain calls are yes/no and I hate it when they are missed and not corrected. Especially when those calls happen in game/season changing moments. Whatever it takes to get it right is what I am in favor of.
  5. Of course it does. The question is how does the league fix it so there isn't a next time.
  6. The Oak loss was maybe Tomlins single worst performance as a HC. That Dobbs INT was as bad a play call as it gets. My only further input was post game, Ben himself seemed to indicate he was ready to go. There was plenty of bad there on every level of the team to go around.
  7. I do. I also know I'm coming off as a Tomlin hater far more than I actually am in here. I just look at the sloppy, undisciplined effort they put out in CLE, coupled with giving up the lead late as the epitome of Tomlin road issues. Exactly how badly did the team have to perform to have that game end in a tie and how is a chunk of that not on the HC who's teams have done this many times before on the road? The specific game can be written off as players, but the performance pattern can't IMO.
  8. Is 6 TOs and 12 penalties at CLE really just on the players tho? Doesnt that speak to preparedness to a degree. Arent the DEN TOs, that happened at critical points, when simply not turning the ball over gets you points not indicative of lack of awareness? Was Ben really too hurt to play in OAK? Who keeps trotting out a Boswell that was obviously struggling from the get go to miss those critical later season kicks? Theres a chicken and egg here for sure when it comes to coach vs player responsibility. Its not the specific issues I hold Tomlin to blame for, its the season after season repetitive issues that I have begun pinning on him.
  9. I agree with this, but again that lends scrutiny to Tomlins role in the personnel process. There no two ways around the impact losing Shazier has had. Its been huge and obviously cant be laid at Tomlins feet. However, he's been pretty sketchy, especially for an ex DC that wants to rely on his D to win the "attrition" football style games his philosophy demands it to, at keeping this unit afloat. Maybe its simply organizational, but they just havent been able to hit with any of their picks in the secondary for a while. Id also suggest Tomlins road woes generally were simply highlighted this season. Road games are tough, but SB teams beat the teams they are supposed to even when they travel. The week 1 CLE tie, and the DEN and OAK losses were bad losses and in the context of both Tomlins past season road performance and the specifics of how they lost those games, they were symbolic of Tomlins repeated flaws. Play down on the road, get your team a second half lead and then go conservative and force your D to win a close game, and make bad situational mistakes that often times appear as not being prepared. Its been few and far beteeen that Ive watched a game and thought Tomlins Xs and Os involvement was responsible for a W, while it has seemed that his Xs and Os is directly involved in many of the bad losses they endure. There may be a lot of correlation vs causation with my sentiments. I get that. I see Tomlin lose the same type of games in the same type of ways over and over and I hang a chunk of the blame on him. I dont see anything changing there to think it wont be repeat performances in upcoming seasons either.
  10. Sadly, already proven correct. Apologies for even bothering.
  11. Your dont feed the troll post seemed applicable. Plus the damn editor wouldnt delete it once I accidentally included it. So I tried to make it work. Lol.
  12. At the risk of doing the first quoted, everyone can read what you write. You arent having independent conversations. We all see you like Tomlin. Cool. No need to keep repeating it over and over. That said, its reasonably obvious that as an apparent Lions/Niners fan you dont follow the Steelers closely. They, the Steelers, were 7-2-1 and in the drivers seat for a 1-2 seed at that point. Multiple brutal losses with the same tired tropes that are hallmarks of Tomlin teams left them watching rather than playing. It was indeed an epic collapse for a team with this much talent. As much as you want to say his record points to a good coach, there are legitimate reasons fans that follow the team closely arent convinced hes the right guy. He will be their coach for at least another season, and likely a couple, so I really hope you are more correct than not, but the guy's record belies fundamental issues that many believe are serious enough that a SB ring isnt happening with him in charge. I just dont wanna see you post, but hes a winner, in response to discussion of those issues every single time.
  13. Absolutely concur. This was not a "mistake". This does not "happen all the time". This does not "even out over time". I dont believe it was intentional, but the league can not allow obvious game and season altering misses like this. Regular season or playoffs. This one was as bad as it gets.
  14. I think youve made your opinion plenty clear man. Repeating the same thing ad nauseum doesn't make it any more correct.
