For tonight -
Pfffft. FB, I ain't buying your cool-aid. If I don't let you score, I will win.FoxxyBrown1111 said:Myth debunked long time ago. Only that the pundits still repeat it many times, even nowadays...
But defense wins champsionships is crap (ok, in soccer or hockey it might be true; but who cares ).
The Browns are rebuilding the rebuild that was rebuilt.We are doomed as a pro sports town.Alpe d'Huez said:Impressive that KC is now 3-0. They also have a soft schedule coming up, and could feasibly start the season about 7-2. But their tough games are stacked at the end of the season. Playing (and losing to) Denver twice over three weeks could dent them. Still, if they get their mojo going after some wins, Reid and steady Alex could lead them into the playoffs with that talented group.
Aldon Smith is an idiot.
I can somewhat see why the Browns dealt Richardson, and I don't see him helping Indy that much. He's been too injured, and I won't say a bust, but not worthy of the 3rd round pick when he was supposed to be the next Jamal Charles with his running and ability to catch and block. They'll bail on Weednen next and expect to rebuild entirely. Browns have deeper problems on the OL and DL too.
Hey clones. This post has value. After a hard day being methodical and analytical at work, battling code, and keeping the wolves at bay, the mind sometimes comes home all wound up and needs to unwind and destress. I could go to the fridge and pop a good IPA, or I could go the The Forum and read posts like this. What comic relief! ALMOST as good as any IPA (yes, the IPA pick still wins). But, the mind is now recharged and ready for any Monday. On the count of 3, every clone here say "Got it"! Got it? Ready? Here we go... 1, 2, 3, "Got it"!kalmar11 said:American football is the dumbest sport on the planet, got it!!!
But the point is, he's the one who recruited Montana, Rice, Craig, Ronnie Lott, etc. The 49ers were one of the worst teams in the NFL in 1979, when Bill Walsh took over as HC. They won four SBs in the following decade. Of course having the right players was a large part of it, because after Walsh stepped down in 1988, George Siefert took over and led the team to another SB his first year. But Walsh was the one who recruited those players, and devised the system in which they played, and as they retired, the team declined. They did win another SB in 1994-5, with Steve Young as QB, but he was also recruited by Walsh. By the end of the 90s, Young was gone, so were most or all of the other players recruited by Walsh, and the team entered a long period of mediocrity or worse.FoxxyBrown1111 said:Even Walsh would only have 9-7 seasons en masse if he hadn´t Rice & Co....
I think you mean he passed for more yards than his team gained? That's possible if you have negative rushing yards. Marino came fairly close to that in SB 19, when the Dolphins gained only 25 yards on the ground. When your whole team rushes for less than half as many yards as the opposing team's QB, you know you're in trouble.ferryman said:As a casual fan, and a Dolphins one at that (3-0 yeah), who can explain this:
On September 23, against the Falcons, Tannehill became the first quarterback in NFL history to pass for more yards than the team total.
That's what I took from it. But seeing the basic highlights the Fins seemed to be running OK. Will need to download the stats. I do, though, remember the Marino/Clayton/Duper early years with fondness (thank fook for You Tube).I think you mean he passed for more yards than his team gained?

Spygate and Vinatieri will be remembered for sure.FoxxyBrown1111 said:Personally he must be remembered as the greatest ever (if he wasn´t losing all his playoff games lately, which Brady has a lot to do with, and chance), because he has/had the most serious coaching environment.
I assume you're joking, since his 10-3 record in his first year after leaving the pros was a best for Stanford in I don't remember how many years. Not to mention beating Penn State and Paterno in a bowl game. IIRC, he only coached one more year, and left because he got bored with it. Not the nicest thing to do to new recruits, but no reflection on his ability to coach.on3m@n@rmy said:Walsh was fortunate to have the players he had in his San Fran glory days, probably most whom he recruited. Walsh also thought Rick Mirer would be the next Joe Montana. We all know how that ended up for Mirer. Walsh did not fare so well in the Win column in his stint as the Stanford Cardinal HC, where he did not have much talent after his glory days in San Fran. Point being, Walsh made good moves personnel wise, but I think he was really overrated. Those players made him.
