Dan Orlovsky and a couple pundits saying Belicheck leaves NE next year, and his next team is already set. One person speculated that team the Giants. But why them, when they are in as bad of a needed rebuild as the Patriots? One person guessed the Raiders. That would be an epic disaster. But Mark Davis doesn't have a great history of making sound decisions. My guess is 90% the next coach is Jerod Mayo, and they re-hire Josh McDaniels as their OC (presuming he and Mayo got along), 40% chance Matt Patricia comes back as DC. They then cut all their quarterbacks, and pick one of the top QBs in next year's draft, and start over.

That last, horrible pass Mac Jones threw last week, may be his last throw in a Patriots uniform. Even Josh McDaniels can't fix him.

As to Zach Wilson, I thought you said he just needed snaps, Nomad? :innocent: Seriously, he's almost as bad as Mac Jones at this point. The Raiders defense is decent, but in all honesty they have one pro bowl level guy, Maxx Crosby. Spillane is good, Peters is a very good cover guy and ball hawk. Epps is a good safety, gets all over the field. But that's about it. Everyone else is pretty average. They are well coached, and trying hard. But this is not the Eagles, Browns, 49ers, Chiefs, Cowboys defense they were playing.

I'm not sure what to make of Trevor Lawerence. At this point he's been good at beating the teams they are supposed to beat. But even the win over the Steelers he looked average. And he didn't win that playoff game last season, the Chargers lost it. Sherman is right in that their team has a lot of talent, and he's not playing up to that this year. And his stats are actually down, when this is a season he should be really maturing. Like Nomad says, for a #1 pick, he's starting to look a lot more like the next Jamis Winston, not the next Peyton Manning.

Well...ya got me there Alpe. Lol I figured he needed snaps & to be put into difficult game situations to develop. As Mahomes told him after their game, he has talent - there's no question about that (we witnessed his phenomenal arm strength on that Hail Mary throw when he running toward his weak side & threw the ball like a javelin across his body - not many QBs can do that).

And spending the OTAs & preseason camp under Rodgers, I figured he would learn something that would significantly help his development. But as the season progresses, he's showing no improvement & he's starting to hurt the team with costly turnovers (the team is going to turn on him - if they haven't already - and Saleh is going to have one hell of mess in trying to keep the team together moving forward).

But it's not just him. Is it just a coincidence that they're are 5 other QBs drafted with the top 3 OA picks that are sitting the bench as backups (Darnold, Trubisky, Mariota, Wentz, Lance). What has happened here? These are big, strong QBs that can make all the NFL throws & then some. These QBs performed very well in college with some having stellar & spectacular seasons. At the combine, they were "oohed & awed" by the network talking heads & former QBs who supposedly have expertise in judging QB talent. And the coaches & GMs in attendance were diligently taking notes & reporting back to ownership on how great these guys are. Then comes the draft & their guaranteed $$$ & colossal signing bonuses without playing one effin game!

And they get to their respected teams & they suck - performing no way near the expectations of a highly-drafted franchise QB making that kind of money. But at the end of the day, maybe these guys don't give a crap because they've got that guaranteed dough & huge signing bonuses laughing all the way to the bank (they may be a failure in the NFL but if they saved & invested some of that money wisely - they're set for life as a wealthy man!). And the hotshot scouts who make millions will keep on misjudging QB talent as the owners don't seem care much either (I guess when you're a multi-billionaire owner & you just lose a few dozen million on a QB, it's no big deal in the grand scheme of things. Lol).

Seeing another season ( career?) ending injury to another NFL quarterback I personally, not saying this to be dramatic, but I think Chargers coaching ( play calling) is a career danger for Herbert. If game video and the stats play out if the Chargers become even more pass centric ,just going to have defenses teeing off on him.. and there is a fraction of a split second of completed, dropped pass and QB contact. Not saying there is a bounty on anyone, including Herbert but if defensive can waste a play and send 2 additional on a blitz, Herbert is going to get hit more,and more, all clean, all within the rules. Many quarterbacks are laying on the deck after a beautiful touchdown or first down pass. I know Austin Ekler is a talent and is certainly a relief valve for attacks on Herbert but I want more..Andy Reid is not available Nick Sirianni is busy..The Big House has changed the locks and Harbaugh is locked out!!! I have read that maybe a great season for the LAC is a winning season and making the playoffs and anything else is gravy.. Maybe that's right and my expectations are too high..

You left out Jamis Winston, Carson Wentz. Add Blake Bortles (out of the league at age 29).

Seriously though. I commented on this phenomenon before. Coaches, GMs, and scouts, and especially sportswriter "experts" all get enamored by NCAA quarterbacks. They see a guy who has never failed in the NFL. They see someone who looks great (against defenses that would get shredded by the worst NFL team), and convince themselves this guy can do the same in the NFL. But history just doesn't back that up. For every Joe Burrow, you get a slew of guys like those you listed. And then there's another list of highly touted QBs taken #1 overall who turned out to be fairly average starters. Kyler Murray, Baker Mayfield, Sam Bradford, Alex Smith. Maybe add Trevor Lawerence to that (at the rate he's going). Even Matthew Stafford struggled on an average team before winning a SB on a team that was just loaded with talent.

There are some QBs drafted high overall that played well, but didn't manage to win a ring. Jared Goff, who is still just 29 and playing well. Cam Newton had one MVP year, but crumbled badly in the Super Bowl. Andrew Luck may have won more games than he did, but his career was ruined by injury.

Chargers are like the dumpster filled with newspapers and flammable disposed bottles of who knows what chemicals, just waiting for the right match to come along. I posted before, if Herbert is injured they are doomed. Just go back and watch any film on Easton Stick. For some reason the Chargers loved what he did last year in practice, and anointed him their #2 guy. But his play in the preseason was just awful. I know it sounds like I hate him and think he should play hockey with his name, but just watch for yourself. They are doomed if he has to play. Max Duggan is their 3rd string guy, and he was pretty good in college, more mobile than Stick (or Herbert), but he was only so-so in the preseason, doesn't have a great arm, and needs at least a year on the bench before he's even a serious back-up. So, no Herbert - Chargers may not win another game.

But the Chargers have more problems than that. They seem to crumble in crunch time in most games. Their OL looks good one series, and terrible the next. I'm not sure Herbert and their receivers are always reading the same play. They have maybe the best DE duo in the NFL, but have a terrible pass defense overall. Their DBs often get burned. Their LBs are worse in coverage than most teams. Their D has given up the 2nd most yards in the NFL, and are tied for the most yards per pass attempt. This is shocking for a team who is also I think 4th in sacks.

Read somewhere today people speculating Belicheck will be their HC next season. I can see that. They have some talent, but are a total mess as an org, and their coach is 99% likely to be fired on black monday, or 80% likely to be fired before the season is over. So Bill could come in, and in 2-4 years win some games, break Schula's record, and spend time on the beach.

How is Lance going to improve ? Gone from the 3 at SF to the 3 at Dallas and Dak is playing better than he did last season, so far. Another year of sitting for Lance. There were runors of him being traded to the Vikings before the Dallas trade went through which at least would have seen him get on the field but I'm sure the Vikings are quite okay with their QB choice at the moment !

BB to the Bolts is an interesting thought. If LAC does get rid of the coach, will it stop there or will the GM go too? I hope that LAC won't give BB the all the reigns like he has now. Will BB bring his OC (JMcD) and DC (MP) with him?

I'm still not convinced that a head coach change is the right move, but that is the only move teams seem to know. A new DC is probably a good idea though.

That's a real good question. Here's the thing though: While BB, JMD and MP might make a good soup, everyone knows the secret sauce that lead to all those SB wins was Tom Brady. So as bad as Mac Jones is, and as sub average they are in pass blocking, and maybe the worst receiving corps in the NFL, I'm not certain the three of them going to LA is going to turn the Chargers into SB contenders. Though they can't underperform worse than they are now.

Nick Chubb had his second surgery, and it was declared a success. His doctor said he should be able to return to the Browns sometime next season.

Speaking of the Browns, here's an article on how the Texans completely fleeced the Browns in that trade to get Watson. Not only is Cleveland stuck with that massive contract they are paying Watson but in the trade the Texans got:
  • Kenyon Green
  • John Metchie III
  • Christian Harris
  • Dameon Pierce
  • Thomas Booker
  • Will Anderson
  • Tank Dell
  • Brandon Hill
  • Xavier Hutchinson
  • 2024 first-round pick
  • 2024 third-round pick
While Watson played quite well in the second half of last week's win over Baltimore, it's really the Browns defense that has been winning games for them. For the $200m they still owe him (fully guaranteed), the Browns got, from the article:

Of the 44 quarterbacks with 200-plus pass attempts over the past two seasons, Watson is 37th in passer rating (right above Carson Wentz), 41st in completion rate, 34th in touchdown passes, 14th in interception percentage (2.6), and 37th in yards per attempt (6.5).

Good article from SI about how Ken Dorsey didn't blow the Bills losing to Denver, but is the fall guy. Story questions Sean McDermott, saying similar to what I did the other day. I was seriously questioning the decisions of the HC, and the players, not the OC.

Ravens Bengals tonight, should be good.

I included Wentz - he just signed with the Rams. I didn't include BB because I was only using active players currently to illustrate my point. I totally forgot about Winston - I thought he actually retired. Lol. How humiliating it must be for a #1 OA to be sitting the bench as a backup at this stage of his career. I figured he wouldn't want to subject himself to that embarrassment.

After seeing this video, I need to cut some slack with Wentz. I didn't realize the ACL injury was more serious bringing on a host of residual injury problems. He's a tough hombre - so I wish him the best on his comeback journey:

He sure as heck isn't going to improve running the scout team offense. Lol. This is probably the saddest case I've seen recently: A #3 OA is currently a #3 QB on the depth chart - he can't even make the backup role!

Can you imagine the dejection Lance must feel being relegated to #3 QB & scout team leader after being characterized as a "Mahomes 2.0" when he was drafted in 2021. The 49ers drafted up to get him & there was Shanahan & Lynch doing cartwheels & high-fives celebrating what they thought would be the next Mahomes!

Lance #3 QB at Dallas --- Purdy, "Mr. Irrelevant" the franchise QB at the Niners - unbelievable...you can't make this stuff up.

Belicheck really looks to be a realist he doesn't try to push players outside themselves, push the envelope for their ability. Brady and surrounding cast were able to do things individually and as a team that others can't. And the newest version of the NE Patriots don't have extraordinary anything.. imagining Bill Belicheck to the Chargers probably similar outcome, w LAC having slightly deeper talent pool. Harbaugh or Belicheck..more imagination used in offensive scheme and a different emphasis on fundamental football. Staley can't get either line right and when it's the defensive line Chargers have to run w the best at giving up yardage and points.
Don't know what a coach, GM or owner can do when half the starting defense can't do the job. So I am belly aching about the coach, when what I really want is a miracle worker. Every team in the NFL is desperate for both kinds of lineman and for the Chargers to find 2 or 3 for both sides of the ball sounds sort of pie in the sky..and I don't know who is most important.. Offensive line or defensive line.. LAC need both!!!
I should just calm down.. Saw Fouts, Winslow, Seau,Rivers,Tomlinson.. The way I portray it it's been years of Ryan Leaf..or Leaf Garrett..hasn't been all bad. Hope BB reads my wish list and gets a Chargers Super Bowl before I give up..

Ravens with a great win to further their stranglehold of the AFCN while looking like the team Chiefs have to look out for. They look great on both sides of the ball and if the Chiefs offense doesn’t figure it out they could be in for a bruiser. Edit: but Ravens took a hit with Mark Andrews ruled out for the season.

Bengals season is hanging on a thread like the Bills but for different reasons. If Burrow is out for anymore games or this affects him the Bengals won’t make the playoffs with how the AFC is turning out.

Andrews a bad loss for the Ravens. Bengals season could be done after a slow start to the season. The consecutive losses have stalled them again and now Burrow has another injury. But the Ravens look like the best team in the AFC and should have beaten the Browns last week after leading 17-3 and then leading again by 14 in the second half. The Jags will like their chances especially with the problems at the Bills and Bengals and the Browns after looking good are also now in trouble with Watson's injury. Miami is also quite banged up. The AFC looks like a bit of a mess compared to the NFC at the moment especially for notable injuries.

Cincy is probably finished.


I don't see Jake Browning improving enough to make them competitive. In a little over 2 quarters of play, Browning threw only 14 passes completing 8 with no TDs., and didn't seem to have the ability to change the game. Defenses will adjust to stop the Cincy run game forcing them to throw more than they want to with Browning.

It's insane how QBs & big name players are dropping like flies this year.

Agree with everyone. Bengals are done. No Burrow, no chance. They already had a tough schedule ahead. Now, they are likely to compete for last place with Cleveland. Baltimore could run away with that division. They have lost 3 close games, and could have won all 3. They have one really tough game left, week 16 in SF, but could run the table otherwise.

Right now the Chiefs look like survivors. They also manage to find a way to win games, even when they don't look great in the process. You don't ever apologize for a win in the NFL, and Chiefs fans should feel good even if their team is somewhat on cruise control, simply because they are relatively injury free, and their D is playing quite well. Their OL may be an issue against teams that can rush the passer (like Baltimore). The Steelers somehow find ways to win, now 6-3, and with Burrow out in Cincy, their schedule is relatively "easy", their next 6 games are winnable. But I don't trust them come playoff time. Mahomes and Reid give KC a chance to get to the Super Bowl that I don't see Pittsburgh having. I just did some looking and Miami has not beaten a single team that was .500 or above. While Jacksonville has beaten winning teams (PIT, NO, BUF), they also lost badly to the Texans, and were clobbered by SF.

Teams in the NFC do have it relatively good by comparison.

I didn't think Philadelphia would have this much staying power, but right now they look to be in a very good position, but we'll find out a lot more after Monday night. I don't see Dallas winning the SB, but Dak is playing as good as ever, their D is very good, the team is well coached, and I think sitting just behind the Eagles may help them. We've talked about SF, and how if they are healthy, they are as good as anyone in the NFL. Seattle is fairly healthy, and a threat to anyone come playoff time. And if Dobbs can keep it up in Minnesota, they look good too. The Lions had only one bad game, but that was losing to the Ravens, in Baltimore, when they were missing their top RB (Montgomery). In fact, the duo of Montomery and Gibbs are the best tandem in the NFL, both are around 500 yards rushing, both have long TD runs. This is not common in today's NFL. This is Larry Czonka/Jim Kiick type running game. Combining this with the Lions quick passing attack will be tough for anyone to stop.

I can see him being the shiny thing, but I'm not sure if I see him being the best option for any of the teams who need coaches.
By shiny are your referring to his sterling interview style?

Not to this level. EE wasn't the same guy he had been.
Michigan to drop Big 10 lawsuit.. Harbaugh to finish 3 game suspension and most likely my LAC coaching dream is dashed.
I wouldn't say that's 100% true. A lot can change in a few months. Let's see what happens come NCAA playoffs, and after Staley is fired.

Thoughts on a few games:

PIT@CLE - Browns going with DTR at QB. He looked really good in the preseason, strong arm, but so-so when played regular season. Both teams all defense. Game could be low scoring for sure.
CHI@DET - I only put this here because Fields is back at QB for Bears.
LAC@GB - Both of these teams are capable of losing this game.
LVR@MIA - Miami has not beat a team at .500 or above, but I don't know that the Raiders can score with them.
ARI@HOU - Cards came a bit to life with Murray, but I like the Texans.
TEN@JAX - After getting thumped by SF, curious how Jax responds.
NYJ@BUF - Curious how "new" Bills offense plays against a very good Jets defense. Too bad the Jets don't have a QB. They could be a real threat in that division right now.
SEA@LAR - Rams surprised Seattle, in Seattle early this year. Look for revenge.
MIN@DEN - One team's short feel-good streak is going to end here. My guess is it's Denver's.

PHI@KC - Super Bowl rematch, and if the season were to end today, the two favorites (I think) to play again (respect to Baltimore in the AFC).
